It's pretty disrespectfull to Juan Marquez who in his own right gave manny his toughest fight to date. Pure boxing fans want to see this fight. I smell and upset leading up to a rematch.
Marquez, like machida, drinks his own pee too. Watchout PB

Dana has a valid point. Just like Machida a year or so ago, before he fought Tito, nobody knew who he was, but that made him no less awesome. I think Danas main point is Boxing doesnt listen to the fans, where as, especially now, the UFC makes the fights the fans want to see. Boxing is run by arrogant jerks, that expect the fans to eat whatever they serve them. The UFC, especially Dana knows thats what has killed the Sport, and he's taking great stride to ensure that doesnt happen to MMA. I for one appreciate that.

As for the possible upset, that would be incredible. Justice would be served.

That's EXACTLY Dana's point. Few people really care about Marquez-Mayweather. Marquez is going up 3 weight classes (minus 3 pounds) from where he normally fights. The fans didn't want this fight, this is completely evidenced by the fact that there are still tickets available and the MGM Grand still has rooms available. The fight the world wants is Mayweather-Pacquiao. I understand the idea of a "tune up" fight, but making a guy who normally boxes at 130 (he's fought 135 only twice) come to 144 is just, well, very Mayweather-like.

LOL, yeah, that's true. You have the Bible which teaches people to be humble, but he's on TV bragging about his "8-figure payday". Blah blah blah. The guy's got skills, but Dana's right, he runs like it's a marathon rather than a boxing match, then he goes on TV and brags about his money. He's such a dick.

God yes, he brags about everything. Its like he is just eaten up with ego and pride, it is such a shame. Not to be judgemental, but the "Preacher" that follows him everywhere doesnt appear to be doing that good of a job keeping him grounded
