    With the Mayweather/De La Hoya fight coming up in May, is anyone else interested in talking a little boxing?

    Pretty excited about PBF-DLH but to be honest I don't think DLH has much of a chance. His stablemate Shane Mosley would have a better chance at beating Floyd at 147. Anyways though I think at the very least, DLH will put Mayweather to the test and hopefully it will be a good fight.

    Before that fight though there are some other fights going on.

    April 7th on HBO, Joe Calzaghe is fighting Peter Manfredo Jr. of Contender fame. Calzaghe is up there on P4P lists but he never fights outside of the UK and hasn't really been tested. I don't think Manfredo has much of a shot but its always fun to watch Calzaghe fight. He's a really good fighter that many in the US haven't seen.

    April 14th on PPV, Manny Pacquaio fights Jorge Solis. I don't know much about Solid, but any Manny fight I'll watch/buy. Most exciting fighter in boxing. Also on the card is Jorge Arce, also one of the most exciting fighters in boxing.

    I am interested to watch that Calzaghe/Mafredo Jr. Im hoping to see Calzaghe win it so we can possibly get a fight between Calzaghe and Mikko Kessler. It sounds like they have been dodging each other for awhile, but I think that would be a great fight.

    Im hoping De La Hoya beats up on the Pretty Boy... but I think your right, Im not giving him much of a chance either. Mayweather is just too fast for De La Hoya I think.

    I don't think Manfredo stands a chance. Well anything can happen in the ring, so he has some chance, but I think Calzaghe tools him.

    I would be shocked if Manfredo doesnt get KO'd. I dont think Manfredo has any business fighting Calzaghe right now, but I think the exposure Manfredo recieved while on The Contender may have made him an attractive opponent for Calzaghe.
    Is Freddy Roach still training Manfredo?

    Manfredo is a decent fighter, he doesn't deserve a title shot or anything but he's willing to go to the UK to fight Calzaghe. I don't think there are many American fighters out there willing to do that especially after what happend to Lacy.

    Nope, Roach is with team Golden Boy helping Oscar prep for Floyd.

    He is for sure the best heavyweight out there right now...
    What do you think about his brother coming back?

    Oscar has very, very little chance to upset Mayweather. In fact, he has never truly beaten any top-level fighters in their prime or at their optimum weight. He is a great talent for certain, but he built his reputation on beating blown up or washed up fighters. He has no courage, and is far too slow and limited to do much of anything against Floyd. It isn't even going to be that interesting of a fight, emotionally or tactically.

    Kessler/Calzaghe is definitely a fight in the making, though I would love to see old man Hopkins take on Calzaghe before he hangs them up.
