Arturo Gatti - the human punching bag, "I thought I got points for bleeding"?

I think there is more money on a second and third fight so De la Hoya in the upset !!!

I watched a few shows last night on HBO I think about this whole thing. I really didn't care for the way Mayweather acted during the press conference. His Doc says he's tired of the way people portray Mayweather in the press because he's not like that in real life. I don't think he saw press conference. I really would like to see De la Hoya take him for that reason alone. I despise punkass showboaters. Maybe they should match Mayweather up with that crazy black dude in MMA, what's his name? The dude that does the back flips off of the ropes and has a totally unpredictable style. I want to see him talk sh1t about him.
De la Hoya has his work cut out for him.

As soon as I get out of work, I'm putting 50 or 100 on mayweahter, Win-Decision or KO (5th)...I can't make up my mind.

PBF will win the first 5 rounds, then Oscar will be too big, but his speed wont slow. i predict a TKO victory for DLH late, about round 9 or 10.

Mayweather is an incredible boxer but seems to be worthless as an individual. For that reason alone, I would like to see De La Hoya win.
I keep wondering if Mayweather's antics are driving DeLaHoya in the same manner that Mayorga's antics drove DeLaHoya.
05-04-2007 01:33 PM
What antics? All he does is talk trash...and he is the best boxer on the planet, so he has all the room to talk it.
05-04-2007 01:47 PM
I think it would be ironic if the pretty boy lost this match just for the fact that he's been talking so much trash. I still think he's a better fighter than De La Hoya but regardless, it would be funny never the less.

I certainly would not deny that Mayweather is one of the best(quite possibly the best) boxers in the world. However, it does not excuse his behavior. Why is "talking trash" something that is acceptable? Many athletes who are at the elite level do not stoop to such low levels as Mayweather has. His "talking trash" towards De La Hoya is filled with vulgarities and personal attacks. His trash talking towards MMA is directed completely at a sport in which he would be destroyed.

A real quote from Mayweather:
“Ok, so I stole your ****”, said Mayweather a few days later. “So do something about it”.

The MMA stuff is simply for publicity. I found it funny.
I'm not condoning the trash talking but atleast he isn't doing stupid **** that a lot of other top athletes are.
I didn't know about any live chicken incident...The gym bag thing had me cracking up too.

How can you even watch boxing after watching MMA?
Boxing has a terminal illness. Its slowly dying, and will be dead within a few years.

Boxing has a history especially in the US. I actually prefer it when its a good match...and you won't find a better one then this...
MMA has a lot of histories...

Bernard Hopkins predicts De la hoya. He sayd the fight will start out with mayweather but De will pound the punches as the fight gets into the fifth or sixth and beyond
05-04-2007 08:58 PM
he beat de la hoya 2 fights ago...ofcourse he'd say that.
