    I have to agree - Barrera has been one of my favorites over the last 10-12 years, but he's in deep against Pacquiao.

    Is their any single weapon in boxing that is more fierce than Klitschko's jab?

    I'm glad Soto didn't get a fight with Manny. No disrespect to Soto, he's a solid fighter but I'll always think of him as Erik Morales' sparring partner. A fight with Manny doesn't do much for Pac.

    I like that he's fighting Barrera, 2 legends, I think Barrera will lose but I don't think he'll get destroyed like last time. Well I think he'll get knocked out but I think he'll last longer than Morales did.

    To be honest I was hoping Marquez and Pacquaio would fight, but Marquez got locked into a bout already. Hopefully both guys win and they can set up that fight for next year.

    Espnews just showed the Vargas/Mayorga press conference highlights, with fists flying and Don King in the middle of it.

    20,000 are going to pay to see Vargas get used as a piņata. Mayorga in 6 rounds.

    I heard through the grapevine that Hatton is gonna fight Pretty Boy Floyd. Is that just wishful thinking or is that fight gonna happen? If so, I will be ordering a boxing PPV for the first time ever.

    Eh, I think Vargas is actually a legitimate boxer. Mayorga is just a blown up club fighter. Any boxer should be able to pick him apart. He's got zero skil and no defense. He has some power but he swings from so wide that he telegraphs anything. He beat Vernon Forrest, but only because Forrest got sucked into fighting Mayorga's kind of fight. The same might happen with Vargas, but I don't think it will. Too much riding on the line for him to just fight a slugfest.

    Curious Cross Traffic, do you actually think Ricardo Mayorga is a good fighter?

    I've read that this is the fight Mayweather wants most. And why not? As relentless as Hatton can be, he has a history of getting his face busted up. And you just know Mayweather will be running away from him all night and potshotting. Hatton would have to impose his will on him quickly. Basically, Mayweather likely gets a bigger paycheck facing Hatton, who would have to step up in weight, or he could face Mosley, who I think would give Mayweather a much bigger challenge. Since Mayweather is more businessman than an actual fighter, it's pretty much a no-brainer.

    And I can't stand Mayorga. Vargas should win that fight, but all it takes is one moment of carelessness and Vargas could find himself unconscious.

    My brother and I just got back from the Margarito/Williams fight. Very entertaining. Williams was all over Margarito in the first 4 or 5 rounds, but Margarito took some of the later rounds, landing the most impressive shots. Not enough to keep his belt though. Williams has long arms.

    The crowd was very, VERY intense and into the fight. I think in the 8th and 9th rounds there were two fights in the stands. The first one lasted for what seemed like 25-30 seconds before security came and broke it up. Mostly a pro Margarito crowd, so lots of booing after the fight.

    Most interestingly, I saw some members of the Kings management there. One was a guy who I see all the time at Staples Center, but I don't know who he is or what he does. The other guy is someone I used to see all the time at Staples Center, and now the current President of Business Operations. I didn't get a chance to talk to either of them, unfortunately. They left around the 8th round.
