Not sure. There will only be one fight worth watching and that's the main event. This is a ripoff for $60

I saw the fight from the toprank website, it's the last time I'm going to order it on that site, I created an account and couldn't even log in after I paid, it took many attempts and when I logged off and try to go back in it didn't let me but I got back in and then the video was lagging, garbage

Top Rank is crap. 95% of all the good welterweight fighters are with Golden Boy. The only good boxers that are left in TR are Pacquiao, Bradley, Marquez and Provodniko, Rios, Alvarado to a lesser extent

Dont be surprise with Manny fighting Marquez for a V time. Bradley fights Marquez for a second time. Bradley fighters Provodnikov for a second time.Alvarado fights Rios for a third time.

Default No surprise here

I didn't watch this fight and had no interest in it. Bradley's body lookedchiseled, but I was never impressed with his talent. His first fight with Manny could've gone either way, and apparently in this fight, he looked like the mediocre talent that he really is.

To me, this doesn't automatically propel Manny to Mayweather's level. He beat yet another mediocre fighter. If he wants to fight Floyd, he will have to do more to prove that he's worthy, and reduce his take from the 50-50 demand he has been making. I agree with Floyd that there is no way that a fighter who has been beaten deserves to take half the purse against an undefeated great fighter like Mayweather. Manny is an idiot.

If either one cares about his sport or proving that he is the bar none best of his generation, I think one of them would just say F it and make the fight happen.

They are getting close to 35 years old and have made tons of money - why haggle over ~10M when each can make ~30M+ from the fight....enough money for 3 lifetimes.

Players in other sports leave money on the table all the time if it allows them to possibly win a championship. The winner of a Manny/Floyd fight would essentially win 20 championships.

It seems like both of them know there is a good possibility of losing so they are apprehensive about making it happen. A loss would essentially put a stain on everything they've done or will do.

Close to 35? More like close to 40. I think Bob Arum is the biggest obstacle to the fight happening. Bob Arum only allows his fighters to fight other Top Rank stablemates, so that he gets all the money. You won't see a Top Rank star vs a Golden Boy fighter or a Mayweather fighter. I think Bob Arum is terrible for boxing fans.

All promoters play this game. Mayweather the coward is the one making all the excuses. Now he is fighting an overrated slugger who can't box. Bradley is a much more game opponent than Maidana. Floyd continues to pad his record with flat footed swatters who lead with their face. Next he wants the winner if Khan vs Callazo. One of you Mayweather cheerleaders please tell me how Callazo is now in the rotation? Bad enough Khan and his glass jaw may get a shot.

Yep, here we go again. So if Manny were fighting Maidana then Maidana would be "more competitive" and Coolhand would be trying to build him up like he ATTEMPTED to do with Brandon Rios. Since Floyd is fighting Maidana he suddenly becomes "an overrated slugger who can't box." So much transparent BS.

One of my criticisms of Manny is that he allows Arum too much say into who he fights next. If he blows through Rios then I'd like to see him take a fight with someone more competitive like Maidana or Garcia.
