There still won't be a Mayweather Pacquiao fight. There is a "cold war" between the both of their promotion companies and between HBO and Showtime.



I still believe it is possible because there is just too much money left on the table if it doesn't. Money makes strange bedfellows at times and this one would break all records. Possible $100 Million for Floyd and $50 Million for Manny.

NokTang, if you go I would strongly discourage you from doing anything dangerous with cocks, that stuff is sinful my man.

I thought the problem had something to do with drug testing. Or was that just a smokescreen to cover up some political problem?

Pacquiao is afraid of needles. Mayweather wanted random drug testing. However, as you say that may have just been an excuse to stop the talks. I don't think Mayweather has a promotion company, he does it himself.

I think I found a sportsbook in Manila. Still looking for reasonable airfare. Cock Fights are a big event on Sunday's and one can imagine the excitement at said venues especially if Pacquiao wins. The roar at a cock fight arena can't be matched any place on earth.

Well, as most know, now all, bareback is a way of life in the Philippines. Nothing a good dose of Zithromax doesn't cure so all is well thanks.

Oh come on seriously? I may have had one of my posts (jokes) taken down, in fear it may offend you. I argued that it would have only been offensive towards a bigot. I think I won the argument and could have re posted it. Out of respect, I left it off. I'm not so sure now that was necessary. I still think you authority figures should be held to a higher standard. If not you, then who? This is beyond basic humor especially for a god fearing man, let alone a priest. Sorry but this is strike 2 in my book thank god Jesus/god gives unlimited strikes .

Any insight or opinions on this prime time boxing event? I'm thinking about a trip over to Manila, staying at the Hyatt



I think that you should go, you have talked about how much you love the Philippines for years and I think that you would have a great time. Stay at the Hyatt, win or lose a few bucks on the fight, and see a couple of cockfights. How long are you thinking about staying?

About ten days. I search the airfares night and day. Unfortunately they remain out of my reach(something close to $800.usd RT from Bangkok). I'd rather spend the money gambling than fine dining on an airplane. I'll go check AirAsia now connecting in Singapore or KL. KL should be reasonable all things considered tourism wise with the lost jumbo jet. May those victims R.I.P..

Not sure who or what you are on about mate, but a bit of humor is always welcome on my discussions. Anyone who's been in Asia knows full well the inuendeos and we don't expand on them so that is that. I might add that after an afternoon at the cock pit a man is full of gusto and beer and ready for shall we say action.

Tiger Air is showing $275 US round trip, I paid less than $700 US for a business class ticket Bangkok-Manila on Philippine Air during the time period you are posting about.
