Yeah thats true.

What do you think of that fight and Floyd going up in weight?

How bout Saul Canelo Alvarez vs Shane Mosley on the same Card?

Obviously its not the fight the world wants to see, but I'm still excited for the match. Cotto is a tough and durable guy who could give Floyd problems early on. Still, its hard to pick against Mayweather simply because of his defense, speed, and cardio. The later the fight goes the more it is likely to favor Floyd.

As for Shane vs Alvarez, its interesting to some degree, but I dont see Shane being able to handle Canelo.

I agree that Nick messed up, because he knows the rules. I just dont agree with a lot of the extra hate he is getting.
I agree with everything you have said JB..
Nick needs to have people around him that will look after him a bit more.. Perhaps me..? lol.

The thing I like about Nick is that weather you love him or hate him, what you see is what you get. Chael's role as a "bad guy" is self manufactured to generate interest. Chael is a great fighter and very entertaining, but Im still a Silva fan so its hard for me to cheer for Chael
