Saw coverage of a "red carpet" event promoting the fight. Both fighters were very cordial, and complementary of each other.

My tinfoil hat says Pacman will appear to win but will actually lose a split decision. I think that result maximizes the take on the actual "fight of the century" which will be a billion dollar rematch in 2016.

These fighters are past their pull date, at least they would have been back in the heyday of professional boxing.

What, are they going to prop themselves up with the ropes in 2016 and beat each other with their canes?

Supposedly the #1 and the #6 boxes today, pound for pound. That is what I gather from the lists I read, but I am not a boxing expert by any means. I will say the clear underdog will take the fight because of his drive and motivation more so than Mr. Mouth.



47 and 0 is a pretty good record for Mr. Mouth. Of course, he never had to fight guys like Ray Robinson, Ray Leonard or Tommy Hearns.

Just to warn the naive among the forum...

I just got an "offer" of two tickets and a room at the MGM for three nights during the fight weekend, this coming weekend.

Private party, saying they could not go and going to sell same. Send them the money(not stated of course, to be determined(aka sold to you)).

This is obviously a fishing expedition but for those as I say, who are unaware of the ethics of some of their fellow man, beware.

Just saw a story that William Hill will be doing live in fight wagering for the first time ever. I imagine the prop bets on this are probably going to rival the Superbowl.

Getting my money together to take the 1/100000 bet that a new fan man crashes into the ring.
