Maybe because it seems like a more even matchup. Personally im more interested in watching the best boxer of our generation display another boxing masterpiece.

Some people might call it boring but still there is a reason why he sells the most payperviews.

Pacquiao- Mayweather in May or November 2014? i think there is still plenty of hype if both win their fight this year

Quote:
By Edward Chaykovsky

Manny Pacquiao has come out swinging after being advised of the recent smack talk from Floyd Mayweather Jr. During Mayweather's ten city tour to promote his September 14th clash with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, he called Pacquiao a "has-been" and said the Filipino fighter's "career was over."

Pacquiao, who faces Brandon Rios in November, dared Mayweather to face him if both fighters find success in the fall. Pacquiao also said Juan Manuel Marquez landed a "lucky punch" when the Mexican fighter knocked him cold in the sixth round of their fourth meeting last September.

"To us, he sounds cocky. He’s all talk. Why not stop the talk and say ‘let’s fight’ instead?,” Pacquiao said to ABS-CBN News. "I’m not a has been, I can still win fights. I lost because I took a hit. I wasn’t beaten up… it was just a lucky punch, which is part of the game).”

I think Trout will get Kod vs Lara. Lara is sharp with that left hand, while Trout is just busy, a style that Lara really thrives against. Not sure why some are saying it will be a boring fight lol

I won't give top rank/golden boy any credit for putting on fights between their own fighters. That what they're suppose to do. When they put on fights between each other, then ill give them a

And then Trout/Lara is still a possibility.

Gay fighter going for a world title is pretty big

You aren't alone. This was an absolutely perfect shot, not just in the way it landed, but how he set it up. He had been doing well with a jab/right hook to the body up to that point. On this punch, he stuck the jab out and dropped down as if he was going to throw the right to the body, as he had been doing. Pacquiao rightfully prepared himself for that punch. JMM changed the trajectory to a perfect left hook upstairs.

Watch that gif again and again... You can see JMM drop down just before he throws the punch and Pac reacting to his posture of throwing that hook to the body.

Pacquiao never saw it coming.

This punch was being set up for 2 1/2 rounds. I was honestly a little surprised Pacquiao bounced up as quickly as he did.

Ishe Smith vs. Carlos Molina for the IBF title will also be added to the Mayeather-Canelo card.

What a night. Now, they just need to top it off with a good 4th match, as Trout-Lara and Broner-Maidana will not be on the line-up.

Rumor has it he's making his debut on the Bradley vs. Marquez card against a 25-3 guy. Talk about wanting to take that big step quick.

His amateur record is insane - over 300 wins and one loss. I saw all his fights during the last Olympics. He was dominant. Can't wait to see him in action.

Bradley/Marquez may get canceled. Apparently JMM is not cooperating with the drug testing.
