Mayweather VS Pacquiao, who's your favourite?

Mine's Pacquiao, but I think that mayweather is going to win

Taking Manny on this, but that's all hypothetical and shit cos I'm not actually betting anything. And let's e honest, no ones getting me to pay the 80 or 100 bucks or whatever nonsense this PPV is going to cost. The number of interested friends it would take to drop it down far enough to a price I want to pay is greater than a) the number of people I want to watch a fight with and b) the number of friends I have that give two shits about boxing c) possibly even just the number of friends I have period.

The key word is "was"


This fight will draw a lot of interest, even though it's a few years too late, and hotel prices in Vegas have skyrocketed for that weekend to just absurd numbers.

Alas, heavyweights draw the general masses, and that division hasn't been interesting in quite a while, so the general public doesn't really give a turkey.


Oh, and the only way Mayweather loses is if he takes a dive.

This fight is 5 years late
I still expect it to break all money records


biggest certainty, is a rematch within 12 months
because there will be even more money to be made on that

Mayweather is a shitty person who I will be rooting against. That's all I really care about.

You should really be concerned that one of his associates might read this to him.

I'm not a boxer or a woman so I'm not worried for my own personal safety.

If this fight had happened in 2010 I would certainly have made it a point to watch.

This being 2015, I couldn't care less.

We're getting into Rocky V territory with these two. I'll see if I can find a stream somewhere or maybe find a bar that's showing it. No way am I paying PPV prices to see a couple old dudes fight. I could just go to a bingo night.

The last boxing PPV I bought was Holyfield/Tyson II in 6/97. You know, the one where Iron Mike had a craving for Evander's ear. I forgot how much they charged for that fight, but I think it was in the 50's.

I heard they might charge 90-100 bucks for this fight. Fuck that!

I struggle to think of a sport I care less about than boxing, but this:
