If you replaced Mayweather and Golden Boy with Pacquiao and Top Rank, yall would be all over this. "FLOYD WAS RIGHT" "LOOK IT'S PROOF MANNY IS USING" "BOB ARUM IS THE ANTICHRIST"!! Raaaaaage!!!


Exactly

I'm kinda surprised that no one has mentioned Hector "Macho" Camacho being on life support after getting shot in the jaw last night. There was hope he would survive, but that pretty much got toned down today.

Yeah, just heard a little while ago. Looks like it was drug-related. The guy who was driving the car Macho was in had 10 bags of coke on him. Doesn't look good for a recovery, his mother has to make the decision of whether or not to keep him on life support...

Camacho Sr. is now brain dead according to the latest news. He was a very entertaining boxer during his prime.

RIP Macho.

Never one of my favorite fighters, but that doesn't mean he didn't entertain me. More importantly, he has a family that loved and cared for him.

A true legend of the sport, not necessarily because of his ability as a boxer... but a legend nonetheless.

Must watch fight from Saturday. Brian Viloria vs. Hernan Marquez. One of the best fights I've seen this year.

Met Macho outside NYC several years ago. Traffic jam at Tappan Zee bridge. Absolute parking lot, people just got out of their cars and stood around.

He was a good guy, not at all what I would have expected. Signed a few autographs, then just sat on hood of car chatting. Pretty funny.

Hope his father wins out and his organs are donated. Everyone should be an organ donor. Give the gift of life.

Yessuh. That round is that good. Both guys can take a punch and can dish one out despite being really small.

Berto vs. Guerrero tomorrow on HBO and Hatton vs. Senchenko on Showtime. I'm really looking forward to both fights.

For those of you interested, HBO has uploaded all 3 of Pacquiao vs. Marquez fights to YouTube building up their upcoming fight on December 8th.

Pacquiao vs. Marquez I

Pacquiao vs. Marquez II

Pacquiao vs. Marquez III

And as a bonus for those of you who missed it here you got Pacquiao vs. Marquez IV - HBO 24/7 episode 1.

Berto getting beat up lol. He's not in his shell anymore coming out for the 3rd. It's a combination of his arms being too short/torso too long/keeping his shoulder too high/not fighting enough in that shell for it to be effective.
