Money May still got one more mega fight, if Pac Man somehow pulls it off against Spence, they both can ride into the sunset with one last 9 figure payday


IMO Pacquaio made a career ending decision. I hope he comes out of this with his faculties intact and hangs up the Everlast's.

Pac's too old to chase Mayweather down. Floyd would get on his 10 speed and keep it in high gear.

When Pac got close, quoting Kendrick Perkins, he'd make him smell his cologne.

May would hug Pac so tight he may get charged for sexual harassment.

I wouldn't buy the fight. It would be a snoozer.


Man, I'm worried about this Spence fight, bigger younger stronger fighter. PacMan prob don't feel like he's 43 but his body is 43. (I'm a big PacMan fan)
As far as Money-Pac fight, you know they gonna milk this one more time, it's too much money to let go and yes, people will pay

the fear is what pac,looks like and sounds like 10yrs from now. Still a young man at 53. He already seems a little bit out of it like a wet brain effect.

Montiel took a beating. He lost every round. You have to give him props for staying the course. He went at Chalo every round, he never backed up. He fought a courageous fight.

Looking forward to June 26 Gervonta Tank Davis vs Mario Barrios Showtime PPV

Was good to see how Charlo handled a little adversity when he was cut for the first time in his career. Montiel looked like a zombie out there getting blasted for most of the fight and still coming forward relentlessly. Was surprised that Montiel was not stopped in the 5/6th round when Charlo turned up the heat and hurt him.

Won't be watching or paying for any Tank Davis fights until he faces Teofimo Lopez or Loma. Will probably watch the Loma fight on the 26th instead of Tank's fight.

I'll be watching but won't be paying. I have Firestick and downloaded Eminence. The best don't fight the best anymore.

Fury vs. Wilder, Canelo vs. GGG, Lopez vs. Loma are all notable examples to the contrary. The best rarely fight the best, but the rarity of the scenario does not excuse the pathetic ducking we see in the sport from most fighters. Spence is in that category too until he fights Crawford.

Spence vs Crawford, I like Bud. He seems to be more of a fighter with a purpose. He really has the eye of the tiger.

Man got shot in the head and survived. He's definitely got the eye of the tiger, and he fears no one! Looking forward to his next fight.

I remember. He was shooting craps on a street corner. Bud was still running with his boyhood friends. That shot cost him an ESPN fight. It also put his life into perspective. He left the streets and hit the gym. The rest is history.

After Loma whooped Nakatani tonight, i would love to see a Lopez rematch if he'll grant one. Didn't catch the Davis fight, but i heard he stopped his opponent. Hopefully, Gervonta will decide to fight one of the top guys at 135 sometime soon.

Gervonta Davis vs Mario Barios


Thanks! I caught some of the highlights this morning. Sounds like Gervonta started slow while waiting for a KO opportunity until Mayweather told him he was losing the fight. Then, Davis turned up the heat and finished Barrios late. Wish he would fight Garcia, Lopez, or Loma, so we can see how good Davis really is. However, Mayweather basically said he will only be fighting PBC fighters, which is a shame.

I wanna see Haney v. Lopez. I think Haney is the best lightweight on the planet.

Love Bud but he had a chance to go where all the top 147ers and 54s were and he resigned with Arum, which will make that fight harder to make. Manny jumped ship and has fought Thurman, Broner and now Spence. Spence’s resume at 47 is easily better than Bud’s. Haven’t really seen Spence hurt. I’ve seen Crawford buzzed a few times.

Will be good to see how Spence fights in his second bout after the accident since we have not seen the "old" Spence after that. The promoter excuse is another one used by fighters to duck risky propositions. If Mayweather vs. Pacquiao can get done with Pac still signed with Arum, Crawford and Spence can get done too.

What we know is Bud has been calling Spence out for years and told him to his face that he will stop him. Spence, on the other hand, keeps talking about how he's the man and Bud is on the "wrong side of the street", etc. As a fighter, i like Spence's style of going to the body relentlessly, but he needs to take that fight with Bud before he can solidify his legacy imo.

In terms of Spence's resume, Porter (a limited fighter) gave Spence all he could handle, and Danny Garcia has never won a big fight after Matthysse. Spence could not stop Mikey, who moved up to face him and has no power. If Spence cannot stop Pacquiao (which he should be able to do), there will be more question marks about Spence's ability to win convincingly against fighters that he is heavily favored against.

Should definitely hang em up at this point. Nothing special about Ugas, who will likely get destroyed by either Spence or Crawford.
