    I watched it live on HBO(or was it Showtime). Very uneventful.

    Yea? There was a notable change in their demeanors when they stared down.

    Floyd went from mellow to domineering.

    manny went from happy and relaxed to something else

    At this point, I just want to see the fight. Will you be online tomorrow during the fight?

    most likely not as I will only have internet access through my STEVEphone

    will be seeing this at a night club, so I'll be occupied with the buffet, club slutz, and the thoughts in my mind as the fight unfolds before my eyes

    why did you azzk?

    I have a few friends who are also fight fans that I will be in a text convo with. Just wanted to know if you would be online.

    A friend let me know that he had 2 options to watch the fight at bars. I declined. I will be home watching.

    best way to go about it imo.

    Being alone with your own thoughts during a fight provides the most clarity on what's happening.

    I plan to kill all day tomorrow reviewing boxing footage, so I'll definitely be online at that time.

    Fully agree. The one and only fight I tried to watch at a bar was GB v. PBF. I drove by a few bars and there were lines 3 hours ahead. It was like the launch of an Apple device or a Star Wars movie.

    Neighbors and friends for me.

    Yep. I have maybe watched 5 at bars. The biggest one if I remember was Manny vs De La Hoya. While the atmosphere at the particular place was cool, I just prefer to be home watching. I don't have to wait for drinks. No line at the bathroom. When the fight is over, I can walk 30' to my bedroom and go to sleep.

    May 29 in my backyard...Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY

    Amir Khan vs Chris Algieri

    Khan better not lose this fight if he has any thoughts of fighting PBF next.

    I kinda wish that Paulie Malignaggi was the analyst for this fight. Roy JJ is good. But I really enjoy hearing Paulie's insight.
    He is training for a fight on the Khan vs Algieri undercard.....so that is maybe why.

    Floyd prevents two bum azz female reporters who created pieces on his domestic abuse troubles barred from attending his fight.

    This what I admire about the man. He doesn't conform to societal standards and always takes a crap on the politically correct types.

    They felt delusionally entitled to be at his fight despite contributing nothing to the event but player hating, party pooping vibes.

    Wonder how much they've reported on Golden Boy cheating on his wife constantly.

    Also wonder if the glove thing was to build up a few more PPVs.

    I've always been a Mayweather fan, but I'm indifferent here. I'm just excited to see this fight, don't necessarily care who wins. As far as the bar thing, best $100 bucks you can spend. I'd rather chew broken glass than watch a fight like this at a bar.
