    Not a JCC fan.
    My fave 3 are: Pernell W, Macho and Hagler. Fluke that they are all southpaws.
    JCC got a gift when he KO'd M Taylor with no time left on the clock(I have that fight on DVD.) Richard Steele needed to let him continue. JCC also got a give vs Pernell(also have that on DVD.)

    Sweet Pea and Hagler are also two of my favorites, and you're absolutely right about the gift that JCC got against Whitaker. Third favorite? Y'all musta forgot.

    I just like the swag that Macho brought to the game during his time. Dude was 79-6 and was NEVER ko'd. NEVER. That say something about the era that he was in.

    Whitaker-Chavez is the best fight I ever saw in my life. They had to rob Pernell in the end though.

    Do you happen to be left handed yourself?

    Not really. Fight was proposed within a time frame that could not have worked for Pac. He's got another job you know, and he's not the one who needs to stack some cash to delay going broke before he goes inside for beating up a women.

    snitchiao was fine with May 5th when the potential opponent was supposed to be Marquez. He was no longer available for May 5th after Mayweather locked that date. snitchiao can go back to filing lawsuits against boxers he's unwilling to fight or retire off into politics.

    Not too thrilled for this upcoming fight on May 5th. snitchiao was too busy ducking, Martinez already has a fight lined up, and now we have to settle for Mayweather-Cotto.

    Who else will he fight? Martinez is already fighting in March as you said so no one really.

    And as for PAC fighting bradley, what a joke. He will get KO. I don't understand why people hype him up for.

    I have a feeling pac and floyd will fight eachother and then both retire.

    As a Mayweather fan I feel we're getting the bare minimum of what's acceptable with a Miguel Cotto fight. This Cotto is much better than the proposed Alvarez fight, but I'm not as excited for this as I was Mayweather's last 3 fights, this includes the Marquez one. I'll still be paying for this one though.

    Not a southpaw....


    Same here. Nice fight but............
    I will tell you, Cotto looked much better in his last fight vs Marg. I was at the Garden for the fight and then watched the replay a week or so later....PBF will still take him apart...

    The window for PAC and Floyd to fight each other is closing fast. If they don't fight eachother next well they should retire. I don't care who's fault it is, too much money on the line for them not to fight. I'm a Mayweather fan myself but these two fools just keep dodging each other.

    Floyd will walk circles around Cotto.

    looks like bradley-snitchiao has been signed.

    Bradley like the majority of pacquiao opponents isn't coming off an impressive win in his most recent outing, but Bradley-pacquiao should be a good fight.

    Tim will do better than expected, and people sleeping on this fight are missing out. One of manny's better opponent selections in recent years.

    manny's limitations has been permanently highlighted recently. Bradley's hunger, determination, and decent Ring IQ will give manny trouble.
