Anyone watching this fight?

  I think Manny KO's Ricky in the 8th round.  I don't necessarily give a sh*t about this fight...but if Pacman takes out Hatton easily (which I think he will), just like he took out De La Hoya, he will draw Floyd Mayweather out of retirement...which is a fight I'd pay $500 to watch, on PPV no less (although I'd be much happier to only pay the standard $50 or $75!).   Thoughts?   FWIW - I think Mayweather is a complete a-hole...but he's the best fighter to ever step in the ring.  That's saying a lot...but wow.

Not watching it but I’m going with Pacquiao.  Yes with Mayweather’s arrogance I think it will bring him out of retirement and depending on how serious he takes it he would probably win.  I will disagree with the statement of him being the best fighter to ever step in the ring. 

  Sugar Ray Robinson, Joe Louis, Muhammed Ali, Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Julio Cesar Chavez, Roy Jones Jr...I'll agree that Floyd will be up there but not yet.

News Flash:  Floyd Mayweather is coming out of retirement to face Juan Manuel Marquez in July. 

Very true, we can never know.  I will agree with you he deserves and "honorable mention".  A few more wins and I'd throw him up there.  Hard to argue with a guy who has won titles in 5 different weight classes.

I've always been able to hold my own in scaps but could you imagine going up against someone like "Pretty Boy"?  He would kick my ass and I weigh about 50 more pounds.  His hands are so fast, it would be over before I realized it even started.

Yeah he did.  Maybe I’ll hold off just giving Pretty Boy the victory already.  So Floyd has 5 belts in 5 different weight classes.  Manny has 6 in 6 different weight classes.
