    Good to see the boxing thread is alive and well. First things first, Ricky Hatton. Overrated and over hyped club fighter. Cotto will be much more of a challenge to Pac but Pac will still beat Miguel. I know, I know, I better stop going out on the limb like that.

    Floyd beats Marquez in typical Floyd fashion. Marquez will not be knocked out but it does concern me that the latest pictures of Marquez have him looking like he ate too much menudo. His arms look strong but dude has a bit of a belly.

    Floyd also beats Mosley. Mosley, I think had his last great fight against Margarito unless Shane makes another trip to Balco.
    Margarito was around 200lbs one month before his fight with Shane and it hurt him to lose so much weight in that time, which is probably why they stuffed plaster in his gloves. Did Shane look impressive? Yes. Was Nazim's game plan effective? Without a doubt. But Margarito was depleted. I think you would see a Shane more comparable to the guy who fought Mayorga than to the one who fought Margarito if he fought Pac or Money Mayweather.

    ASU, I'm definitely interested in your perspective. How've you been bro?

    SystemOfACrown,I don't think you're going out on a limb to say that Pacman will beat Cotto.As for Floyd vs. Marquez,if Floyd is the fighter he was when he retired than I would say he could beat Marquez.As you also mentioned Marquez looks like he has a menudo belly,but I still have a feeling that Marquez will beat Floyd by decision.Both fights will be very close and great to watch.

    Saw a great documentary on ESPN last night about the Ali/Holmes fight in 1980. Very bittersweet watching the training footage. Larry Holmes is interviewed quite a bit in this, seems very down to earth and grateful for his career. He was in Boise a few years back for a boxing promotion, and walked into my work, I was the only one who recognized the 7 year heavyweight champion of the world.

    to a certain degree, maybe... but certainly no one other than a betting public who always has their favorites felt that Cotto was going to have his ass handed to him like that.

    the funniest part was listening to Lampley spending rounds 5 to 9 slowly attempting to unearth the flag he was busy planting up Cotto's ass for the first 1/3 of the fight... even funnier when Pacquiao was on the ropes in like the 4th round and Lampley nearly sucked Cotto's **** from the desk only to have Emmanuel Steward PWN his ass and say "i think he's just taking a breather."

    Jim seriously needs to be facepalmed by his wife.

    Cotto won the first round on the strength of his jab, but then as soon as round 2 started, he came out with a more upright stance. He had holes everywhere, and he was just a sitting duck. It was all downhill from there, and fast...

    Nobody in the TV era has ever punched with that much power and coordination in both hands.

    I think even the most ardent Pacquiao supporters like myself thought it was gonna be a tough fight. Pacquiao dismantling Cotto like that was certainly a surprise to me. I expected a war not a massacre as Gescom and Mondo Blondo have discussed.
