    Manny Vs Floyd

    I'm not a boxing aficionado by any means but this has to be the biggest fight in a very long time. My oupa (grandfather RIP) was well into boxing, he worked as a ganger on railways back in the 30's so no doubt knew how to handle himself and I always remember him loving watching boxing on the telly whilst drinking his whisky.

    When Manny came on the scene in the early 90's, the Old Man reckoned that he was The Shiz... Recently I've started taking more of an interest in the sport and I've got a braai arranged with mates tomorrow afternoon to watch the fight. I really hope that it goes the distance.

    I married into a Filipino family so I've a little understanding of Manny's background and what he means to them. I also really dislike arrogant people and I think that Manny was perfectly within his rights to turn down the previous kitties on offer by Mayweather.

    To me it is the biggest fight in a generation. Two fighters, of similar age, similar records duking it out in one of the best boxing venues internationally (Las Vegas). I'm really looking forward to it.

    My heart says Manny but my head says Floyd.

    Discuss.

    Mannys a little old maybe, hard to see Floyd losing, but hey it's boxing, the ref might win! I've got my ring side seat for $50 bucks, I'll be there!! Hoping Manny pulls it off. Floyd has 48 wins that's impressive, great one for being able to dodge the gloves. Bring it on!!

    Manny old? You know that Mayweather is older right?

    As far as I can tell it's even Stevens. I think the fight in the dog was opposed to the dog in the fight will determine the outcome of this one

    Well bugger me I got that wrong! Teach me to listen to my son in law, he had them round the wrong way!! Well that changes my thoughts. The mental toughness will be tested. If Manny can get the hits in it will be interesting. my pick is with all the hype it will probably disappoint, one way or the other!

    Mayflower or whatever his name is, will hopefully get ko in the later stages. I say hopefully. Reality is, the guy can fight and then some. I just don't like the public image of the man, but guess that is what he wants. Good publicity.
    I hope that he gets the arrogance knocked out of him .
    Either way, it will only lead to an even bigger pygmy chequered for a re match

    Yep I agree should have sat him on his arse, the prob is you would think by the end of fight comments Manny wasn't even in it, Mayweather was lucky IMHO. But hey that's boxing, I love the sport as a spectator, by it gets frustrating at times?
