No doubt Doggy! I wouldnt say we need this fight to "save the sport" or anything like that. LOL People have been saying boxing is dead since Sullivan's first fight. I think we need it for the simple fact that it just makes sense you know? I mean , I guess each could go their own way , but like I said this makes the most sense and would propel the winner into the all time greatness level. I have to disagree w/ you ( respectfully of course ) in terms of each fighter needing the other. I love it when people hate on PBF , obviously not saying you , but people have no idea what their talking about regarding him. If you want to hate him , hate him for the right reasons , you know? Both guys have a list of whos , who , in terms of the guys they beat. People love to say that PBF has never beat anyone , LOL , couldnt be further from the truth. Your talking about guys like De La Hoya , Castillo(twice) , Corrales , Corley , Baldomir , Gatti , Hatton , Marquez , Mosley , Judah , Mitchell , Sosa , Ndou , Hernandez and Chavez. People love to call him a coward , a pus sy who just runs and cant/wont fight. I just laugh and say " Do you really think that Gatti wanted to box w/ PBF"? LOL Gatti wanted to make it a brawl and PBF beat his azz , I mean he made Gatti(r.i.p.) look like a club fighter! Same deal w/ Corrales(r.i.p.) and Floyd just put a beating on him , I mean that could have been PBF's greatest fight. He was absolutely great during that one. He was just teeing him up w/ left hook after left hook! The first Castillo fight was most definately the closest fight he's ever been in , IMHO. I remember watching that and thinking , "wow this is a real close one , it wouldnt be a complete travesty if they gave the decision to Castillo". In his day Castillo was a great fighter , a top 5 p4p fighter w/ a killer left hook. Castillo absolutely brought that left hook w/ him and wanted to make it a brawl as well. PBF didnt back down and brought the fight right back to him and didnt back down one bit. He was man enough to give Castillo a re-match and beat him easy. Judah not only turned the fight into a brawl , but used some real dirty tactics as well , like rabbit punches and hitting below the belt...a few times. PBF didnt back down and whooped his azz , he made Judah look silly during the process LOL. Not as silly as Kostya Tszyu , LMMFAO , that was so funny , a little scary , but still funny. Check that out if you never saw it , its on youtude. Baldomir was the bigger , stronger guy and tried to use that to his benifit , as he should , but PBF just picked him apart. And after seeing PBF tear up Mosley I dont think for a second Pac has a chance against Floyd. Believe me I would never underestimate Pac , hes an unbelievable fighter , seriously I have all the respect in the world for him and what hes done. LOL He beat two of my favorite fighters of all time , Morales and Barrera. Those were some great fights man! And trust me I know Manny's hit list as well. Clottey (which was a joke) , Cotto , Hatton , De La Hoya , Marquez (who lets be honest , Marquez beat him , absolutely beat him the first fight and the second is really up for debate too , IMHO ) , Morales (Who he lost to) , Barrera , Larios , Solis and Diaz. Just like PBF , Manny is walking into the HOF after he retires and just like PBF will go down as one of the best ever. See I have to disagree w/ you in terms of they need each other to prove that their great fighters. Like I said I think they need it because it makes the most sense and to prove who is the greatest "little man" of the past 30-40 years. And boxing , maybe like any other sport , has such a rich tradition in terms of all time great fighters. I think Ray Robinson is god-like , LOL and I dont even believe in god , hes the best ever , easy IMHO. Then theres guys like Ali , Armstrong , Pep , Gavilan , Monzon , Louis etc , it sux ending the list because of all the great ones you leave off. A win over Pac or a win over PBF would propel the winner on that level IMHO.
