Interesting to know why if clicking yes, been watching clips of the build up and it reminded me of what an odious character he is.

I hope he beats the s..t out of Manny. Don't think I can bear listening to Roach ramble on any more.

He is deluded.

Each to their own, but i find it strange that anyone would consider Roach's rambling good enough reason to support a wife beating violent bully against a humble decent bloke like Manny. Even if i loved his slightly bland but hugely effective style the fact he hits women is a red line for getting my support i guess my moral compass is a little old fashioned these days. Same reason that although Ray Robinson was the best fighter ever to put on a pair of gloves i have no respect for him as a man.

Mayweather, just to see the meltdown afterwards from some of the more 'obsessed' fans.

Although to be totally honest, if i'm up for it I just want it to be a good fight with no blatant controversey.

I do actually really like Pacquiao. I will not be too upset if he wins. will just try and ignore Roach and Arum.

1. Because I was brought up viewing the various Marcos, Aquino regimes and know what a morally bankrupt Country the Phillipines is...

2. I'll change my mind when I wake up one morning and picture Sot Chitalada rocking Aaron Pryor with every punch he throws..

3. Love watching a master in action.....

4. What you see is what you get.........Like it or not.

5. Can't stand Freddie Roach...

6. It's great having the best fighter in the sport..

7. I know how much rose tinters like the OP hate him .....Although in fairness to Roddy he doesn't edit newspaper articles and post them....

Lucky seven.........

I got to say i know a bit what you mean about Roach but his rambling which is clearly part to do with his Parkinsons, but what do you think when you hear Roger and Floyd Snr mumbling absolute trashy nonsense from their self inflicted drug addled brains.

Roger Maywather makes me laugh. Snr can be a bit annoying though.

Very underrated fighter Uncle Rog (The Mexican basher)......If he'd had a chin he could have been better than the two time champ he was....

People talk about Cortez...........Look at the referee in his second fight with Chavez.

Not funny Truss,

We all know what we get with Mayweather but honestly most boxers have issues somewhere. Dis the man but admire the skill otherwise you won't enjoy most bouts

Admire his talent, which I genuinely believe is once in a generation stuff, but rooting for such an odious man is something I certainly won't be doing.

I liked Mayweather from the beginning. It's like football. I pick a team and I support them no matter what.

Guess this is why I support Floyd. I knew from the minute I first seen him box, he was destined to be a great.

The haters will look back in 20 or 30 years time and acknowledge how great Floyd really was.

I know his a great fighter and one of the best in my lifetime you're fool to think otherwise. I don't want him to win because he is a repulsive individual, dull outside the ring and I although he is brilliant at what he does I don't find him entertaining in the ring.

Well you must be a fool then because you're always saying he's never fought anybody and has never been tested...

I suppose "22 year old" Flyweights moving up and breaking 140 pounders in half counts as honorable in your head..

Manny is no saint. He is probably a nicer guy but he has his flaws. Has he not fathered kids outside of marriage and had tax fraud?

Also I have my opinion on why he was so good and much stronger a few years back. I will not state it because of the respect I have for this board.

Just out of curiosity Rodney and Hogey, did you suddenly want to see Mike Tyson lose after he got sent to jail? Or did you want to see Ryan Giggs fall over every time he got the ball after the news that he was nailing his brothers misses? Both are tarts away from their respective fields.

As for the people on the breadline part, firstly why should he care? He makes his money, if I was in the same situation I can't say I'd be giving them a second thought either because I'd know my career was a short one. Secondly, he has given a lot of money to help build homes in the run down areas, so he hasn't completely ignored them as you say. I think you've been taken in by the persona you see on 24/7, have to remember that some Americans think Ricky Hatton is a mouthy turd because of those shows.

I don't like Floyd the man...I like the fighter........At least what you see is what you get though......

I can discriminate between the two....

You don't like the thought of a modern fighter breaking the Top 10..........

You mark him down because you say he's never beaten anybody...............Then you have Louis over Ali in your heavy list....

Have to say Rodders, if you don't like sportsmen for what they do away from the sport you must hate a lot of them. Most come across as arrogant, self centred arse holes on camera, although I know they can be different away from it - James Degale jumps to mind.

Agree with this, why the f..k do I have to like the man, to like the fighter. I could care less what Floyd does. As long as he stays away from kids and isn't a serial killer he gets my support.

This is boxing, it isn't voting on big brother. To hell with personality.

I'm not sure I'm rooting for either, to be honest, as it feels like supporting one or the other is supporting the fact the fight is happening now not 5 years ago which it should have.

If Manny wins, thought will be "well no wonder Floyd 'retired' 5 years ago to avoid Manny, he'd have lost even more clearly then".

If Floyd wins, thought will be "predictable, shoud've happened 5 years ago when it would've been more competitive, no wonder Manny didn't concede more than to get it on".

Still a massive fight, Top10 p4pers don't find often and Top5 even less, but it still leaves me with a slightly 'meh' feeling.

Speaking of financial irregularities (by the way, I was under the impression that Pacquiao's problem was simply owing tax, rather than being implicated in any kind of tax fraud?), anyone seen that David Haye has been arrested / detained in Dubai for what the authorities are calling possible cheque fraud?

He's released a video on his Instagram today telling his supporters (so basically Dave) not to worry about him too much, saying that it's down to an "administrative error" and that his situation isn't as bad as is being reported and that it'll be sorted soon. He's also tweeted something like, 'Uh oh, credit card declined - maybe it's time for a comeback!?'

Expect to see him back in the ring soon! (If you can call 2019 soon).

Absolutely wanted to see Tyson battered after the r*** conviction, like Floyd he is another scumbag wrong un. I can no more cheer or like these fighters than i would want to listen to Gary Glitter records if i was also a fan of that particular animal. Floyd is a multiple violent offender and at least 2 time wife beater and he also slapped round his kids if thats the kind of man people want to stand behind then crack on, for me he is beneath contempt as a human being and should have been locked up for much longer.

I want Mayweather to win. Admire his talent and would like him to get to 50-0. Just so I have been around to see it.

Regarding his personality, it seems unlikely that he is a 'nicer' bloke than Manny. But I guess the lines are a bit blurred - he's obviously done some nice things (paying for Genaro Hernandez's funeral) and some not so nice things (beating women).


Yeah read about David Haye - Haye v Fury after Fury loses to Klitchsko? Seems possible!

Always been a fan of Floyd and now is no different.
Even though he over does the "hard work" and "dedication" on the prefight documentaries, you have to respect that he has had these assets in abundance since an early age and deserves to be where he is.
If the criteria of choosing your favourite fighter was based on how nice a person is then most people's favourite fighter would be outside the p4p top 100.

Not asking you too, you miserable dour sod.

You're not even watching it and don't watch most fights so your opinion means diddly squat to me.

I watch most big fights every Friday and Saturday. I tend to take exception to anyone trying to who you can and can't back in a fight or who should or shouldn't watch.

Both have equally large fanbases. A draw is to be expected, unless the neutrals swing it.

If it is anyway close I agree. If not a draw, at leats majority/split decison, to ensure a rematch.

Hopefully both fighters go for it and try to take the other guy out.

You said you won't be watching/buying this one as its an American v Filipino (some boxing fan)

I'm not telling you who to back, I was merely interested to know why people wanted Floyd to win as I personally don't know anyone as he is a odious character but he seems more popular on here.

Thanks for being antagonistic twerp as usual though.
