This is the place to be. There are loads of knowledgeable managers around,
always ready to answer your questions. But before you answer a question we've
had before, why not check out the F.A.Q.
and if it's not there, do a search on the boards to make sure there isn't a thread already.
I've drawn Mayweather in Rounds 7 and 8, and a draw. Fingers crossed.

I was up watching it in a casino in Edinburgh, the fight was what it was always going to be. Mayweather was always going to win on points, that's why the odds were so poor, the bookies are never wrong.
Manny couldn't get close to him and Mayweather didn't really offer much but he knew he didn't have to. He never throws punches in any of his fights, he is actually a very boring fighter to watch, he doesn't box, he just knows how to win boringly
He knew what Manny would do, so he kept him away as much as possible. That gave him the win. I hoped Manny would've come out more in the last couple of rounds, not enough of his earlier punches connected.
Floyd and his team, for many years, have had the referee and the judges in his back pocket. I told everyone who was talking in the build up to the fight that only a KO or TKO would give Manny a win. The second the fight went the distance, it was a Floyd win.
Not saying Floyd didn't do enough because he pretty much did. Manny was a disappointment and if his injury is legit he should have postponed but then i guess Floyd would have slipped away from him and that would have been the end for good.
Amir Khan, if you are watching and i know you aren't... Only a stoppage will do. Nobody wants to ruin Mayweather's record and nobody will unless he is knocked out.
Think what you like but Floyd really would pay off everyone to ensure he can carry on making huge paydays as a unbeaten fighter.
For the record... I had £10 of bets on Manny. So even though i believe its next to impossible to score victory on Floyd for skill and cheating reasons... I still believed the Pacman would find a way to blast him out.
