    Who going to watch this fight? What are your predictions? I'm going for Pretty Boy by decision.

    Wish brother PanAfrica was here. I recall he was a big boxing fan.

    Of course, MAYWEATHER, JR.

    Come on now. I think it may end earlier. I think Oscar will bring out the fire in Floyd, Jr...although I don't think Oscar will be a pushover during the fight.

    Here is the poem that Mayweather, Sr. wrote about Oscar:

    Been waiting for this one for a LONG time!

    I want to see what floyd is made of. Oscar is naturally bigger and stronger and his left hook seems made for floyd who doesn't use his hands for defense (rolls his shoulder instead).

    It'll be interesting to see whether floyd can hurt ODH. If he tries to bicycle the whole fight he will lose because eventually oscar will catch him and I haven't seen ODH that fit for a fight in a long time.

    I could predict after round 1, but right now, its a toss up.

    Floyd taxed that ***....

    Floyd beat him PERIOD. The box stats don't lie. Oscar was beat up. I even saw Floyd rock Oscar a time or two...but didn't pursue the knockout which is smart. Oscar is no slouch.

    Great fight. Floyd deserved and earned it.


    CONGRATS FLOYD.

    Floyd is in another class speed wise and the judge that had 115-113 ODH had to be smoking something.

    I think he gave ODH too much respect though.

    I was waiting for him to let his hands go in the late rounds and make his claim to be one of the greatest ever.

    Floyd did just enough to win the fight but with oscar not jabbing and scared to throw his left hook it looked like floyd could've dismantled ODH if he wanted to.

    Seem like he was playing with ODH rather than trying to take him out.

    I feel for Floyd though, I can't imagine being on a world stage and the euros put your own daddy on TV mumbling about he's pulling for the other guy.

    Yeah. I wasn't feeling that either. But, I think Floyd, Sr. didn't want to put down Oscar either...thinking he may go back to train him. We'll see.

    But, he should have said his won and left it at that. The judges should choose the best fighter not the fighter who threw a bunch of punches and hit nothing but arms, shoulders and gloves but very few flush hits. They scored it right. If Floyd, Jr. had taken him out like I think he could have, no one would be discussing this. I think Floyd, Jr. felt sorry for Oscar because he started hitting him almost at will. It could have become another Gatti situation. I think Floyd, Jr. respects Oscar a little too much to do that to him...unlike Gatti.
