    After 3 episodes of 24/7 I can no longer call myself a Mayweather fan. What an arrogant, poumpous-arse peckerwood.. I would really love to see De La Hoya pull one out just for old time's sake this Sat....

    Mayweather is an obnoxious jerk, and very full of himself, but he is as genius a boxer as there has been since Pernell Whitiker. The whole point of the HBO series was to paint Mayweather as the antagonist, and De La Hoya as the good guy. It's a sales pitch, and it works obviously; De La Hoya sells the fights, but Mayweather will make it a masterpiece.

    Prepare for a close, but unexciting (to average fans) fight. As much as people like you dislike Pretty Boy, he is still the pound for pound best in boxing. De La Hoya is not, and is not built to beat him. We shall see.

    I really hope this match lives up to its enormous hype, because it is going to be a long time before we see a boxing match of this magnitude again.

    It won't. Floyd will be brilliant, and Pretty Boy being brilliant is NOT a fun show for casual fans. Sorry guys..

    Can't wait I'm ordering it on pay-per view. Floyd will win hands down he's to fast and his defense is top of the line.

    The Golden Boy is a bit rusty and it will show.

    And by the way you have to have to have a certain cockiness and swagger to be a boxer. If you walk in the ring doubting yourself your going to get your ace handed to you.

    Look at Ali for example.

    Well, it's fairly obvious who my boy is. But don't decide to dislike Floyd because of the way he's ACTING lately. That's all it is, an act. Sure, he's cocky, but he's not the a-hole he's pretending to be to hype this fight.
    I hate the way he's talking too, but I know it's all just an act for sales. He does believe he's the best ever, but I understand why he believes that. Every great fighter does.
