    I actually think Money will need to completely dominate this fight to ensure a clean victory. One can never be sure of what Arum is capable of. It's the wealthiest fight for these guys, but it could also be the wealthiest fight for 2 of the 3 judges.

    George Foreman made a good point when they interviewed him/Roy JJ and Lenox.
    Forman said that in previous fights, Floyd was able to fall behind in the early rounds and still come back and get the W. He said that he doesn't think he will be able to do that in this fight.

    So I agree, PBF needs to dominate from the opening bell. He can't count on Manny fading come round 6 or 7.

    Yeah, and even if Manny starts fading, those rounds could go 10-9 or 9-10 in either direction.

    Agree. And you know that manny wil be throwing the kitchen sink at Floyd and his fans will be cheering even if the punches are not connecting. So Floyd can't leave that to the judges. He needs a convincing win.

    Unless Mayweather gets on his bicycle it won't happen. Manny doesn't tire and he throws ALOT of punches every single round. I think this is gonna be a epic fight. I'll be watching with friends

    I will be home watching. Not gonna be in Vegas. I wasn't going to the actual fight, but was considering being in Vegas to take in the atmosphere.
    I will prob watch solo. If a few friends call and want to come over, they are welcome. But no invites are going out!

    These sorta things are someone brings Papa Johns, someone brings the beer, someone brings the appetizers with my friends. Since I don't have cable, it's never at my place :p.

    Same here. Friends always bring booze. No food....I can't until 9pm to eat as I will be drinking from earlier in the day(Derby Day.)

    I also hear that the main even walkout won't be until midnight.....so pacing oneself is key.

    George don't watch FLoyd's fights very closely

    Floyd has traditionally won the first round in his fights

    When was the last time we reached the second half of the fight and Floyd wasn't ahead on the scorecards.

    What he means(I may have mis-stated it) was that Floyd has had close first half fights and then wins big during the 2nd half. Go back to Zab. Oscar.
    George was saying that in a fight this big, and with so many PBF haters and a crowd that will have as many(or even more) Manuala fans, he can't count on just dominating the last part of the fight.

    A typical 4-1 first half of a PBF fight may be 2-2 or even 1-3.

    Floyd can't think he has rounds in the bank. He can't! He neds a convincing win.

    I agree

    This is why I'm expecting to him to come out and sock manuala hard early in the 1st round
