    haha the article I read didn't mention that and made Marquez out to be a bit of a hero for shrugging off Mayweather's inability to make the mark.

    Can you read anything into his failure to make the mark ? He's been out a while now and it could mean his conditioning isn't top notch

    Hmmm, not that much TBH, I doubt he's as good as he was right now but give him this fight & another few months training & he'll be ready for the big payday that's inevitably waiting for the winner of this & the pacquiao fight.

    I'm positive he'll win tonight/tomorrow. Gutted it's a 4/5am start like, never used to bother me before we had Luke, cant go to be at 6am now cos he's just getting up!

    I was gonna do that, but figure I may as well make the most of it & avoid the result for the day (not so difficult as doing some diy then watching the footy) & d/load it in HD to watch on the projector in the evening.

    Heh, it's ok, was meant to insert a smiley in there but got distracted by a small boy jumping on me. My child I may add, not a strange small boy, that'd be wrong.

    I like both fighters but I wanted Floyd to win before I heard this. What he's effectively doing is paying 600k dollars to cheat and gain an unfair advantage.

    It's basically a welterweight vs light-welterweight fight. Does Floyd need any more advantages? He's already the bigger man. Marquez looks a little fat at the weight already. He barely makes Lightweight let alone LWW. Floyd looks fit and ready to go. He could have easily dehydrated himself a little to make the 144lbs weight limit. But instead he'll pay the guy off to fight at a higher weightclass. What a farce. This is why boxing is losing fans and the respect it once had.

    Agree about Mayweather but I'm thinking he may need a points win.

    Yeah.. came in 3 and a half pounds over the weight limit, whilst Corrales killed himself to make weight. He went ahead with the fight away and got put away in the 4th round.

    They were supposed to have a third fight aswell, but again Castillo came into the weigh-in before fight heavy (this time 4 and a half pounds over).. but this time Corrales decided not to go ahead with the fight (and rightly so) as it amounts to cheating.

    2 defensive styles. This fight will last all 12 and Mayweather on points.
