    it all depends on how you look at it.
    So true!!!! has to be one of the most boring,slow unskillfull (bar 3 or 4 players) sports going around!..........and thats coming from a guy whos country plays cricket and lawn bowls.

    But back on topic.....theres talk of uk boxer Ricky Hatton taking on either Oscar or Pretty boy (provided he doesn't retire) as long as Hatton beats Castillo in their upcoming fight. They would have to lose a few pounds to make weight but it would be a great fight to see.

  3. Ricky Hatton has only left England for his last two fights...granted he won both, but I don't see him being much of a match for either opponent.

    and what is that supposed to mean? seriously you americans need to realise the USA is not the be all end all. He is world champion in his weight class. He beat Kostya Zu who was unbeatable for a long time and will no doubt beat Castillo in his upcoming fight. There are plenty of chumps who fight in Vegas.

    Major fights take palce in the US, thats where all the money is and that is where the talent lies...

    I am sorry to say but it is the same in just about every major sport...except for rugby, cricket and soccer(football)...

  6. oh i agree that the cash definitely lies in the US but boxing doesn't have many guys that can draw a huge crowd and big money like Mayweather and Oscar, but Hatton still gets a few mill per fight and Kostya Zu is stinking rich as well. The big money fights are no where to be seen. Besides last wkend.

    Its a shame the USA isn't good at any sports that the rest of the world plays..........besides maybe basketball.

    my bad perhaps it was but baseball is played in the states and maybe a handful of other places like cuba,japan,. Tennis is dominted by two guys who are quite easily a class above the rest of the pack (non yanks). Hockey i thought the Canadians were the best. And yes there are a couple of guys in the english premier league soccer comp but none that stand out. I'll leave it at that PI before i come accross as anti american.



  9. before we end this...who is the number 1 female tennis player in the world?

    Serena Williams is. Period. End of story. And god damn is she hot...

  12. Serena is ahead in points and money this season...by a lot too...

    Shes the smaller and more feminine of the sisters.

  13. And to anyone following this thread and complaining about DeLahoya/Mayweather....

    well...

    In a fight, do you usually let people hit you? Mayweather is defensive for a reason.

    The outcome of the fight:

    --Mayweather landed TWICE as many punches
    --Mayweather landed TWICE as many POWER punches
    --Mayweather was TWICE as accurate

    Game over. There's absolutely no argument for Oscar.

  15. NBE...agreed on the mayweather fight...and serena has been looking pretty good in her recent interviews...

    i really thougt u were joking at first. They are probably the two ugliest sisters in world sport. They are massive man like women which the biggest asses ive ever seen. And the worst thing is they actually think they are hot. i mean look at the tiny skirts they wear. They are beasts!! cover up those thunder thighs why dont u.

  17. http://www.mediatrainer.tv/uploads/williams.serena.jpg

    she doesn't look bad...it's her sister that looks truly manish.

    I like me women thick! In all honesty I really do think Serena is gorgeous. Funny thing is I never EVER like muscle on chicks until I got into bodybuilding. No, I don't want them huge... but for some reason I have a crush on Serena. mmmm.....

    wow she does look pretty good in that photo but the problem is she would have been cut and pasted to the max. a mate of mine works for a mens magazine and said its crazy how much the editors cut off the originals. any fat or wobble is totally cut away, air brushed etc. From what ive seen on the tensis court she does not appeal to me at all.........and i cant stand the screaming after every shot.

  20. wait you mean she's not perfect?!?

    that can't be true for every celebrity can it?!?

    haha, just playing...wow this went way off topic.

  21. i like my women perfect

    BUMP!^

    It was a hands down decision. The only judge that voted for Oscar was obviously biased. lol

    I can't, for the life of me, figure out what that judge was doing. Even Max Kellerman, who I'd love to muzzle, stated that was biggest issue he had is that a judge could have that many rounds for Oscar... just doesn't make sense in any way.

  24. NEW YORK -- HBO Sports reported today that 2.15 million pay-per-view buys and $120 million in pay-per-view revenue was generated from last Saturday’s mega fight showdown featuring Oscar De La Hoya and Floyd Mayweather at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The fight was promoted by Golden Boy Promotions in association with MGM Grand Hotel & Casino.

    In a fight that set the all-time pay-per-view record by eclipsing the previous mark by a sizable margin of 160,000 buys as well as establishing a new mark for revenue from a pay-per-view telecast, Mayweather scored a split decision victory and captured De La Hoya’s junior middleweight title. The showdown, which featured boxing’s two biggest attractions, produced 1,225,000 buys from cable systems and 925,000 buys from satellite homes throughout the 50 states.

    “De La Hoya vs. Mayweather was a record-setting event from the moment the fight was announced,” said Ross Greenburg, President of HBO Sports. “We are delighted that sports fans recognized the greatness of these two future Hall of Famers and tuned in for their showdown. It’s satisfying to see that boxing still connects with sports fans throughout the country and we are determined to continue to present high-profile fights that capture the public’s imagination.”

    Mayweather, regarded as the sport’s pound-for-pound king, now possesses a spotless 38-0 record. The 30-year-old Grand Rapids, Michigan native now lives in Las Vegas.

    De La Hoya, 34, who has won titles in six weight classes and is the industry’s all-time top pay-per-view performer, has now participated in each of the top six non-heavyweight pay-per view events in history -- including the industry record-setting 2.15 million buys vs. Mayweather; the 1.4 million buys for the Felix Trinidad fight in Sept. 1999; one million buys for the matchup with Bernard Hopkins in September 2004; the Sept. 2003 rematch with Shane Mosley, which generated 950,000 buys; and the Sept. 2002 showdown with Fernando Vargas and the May 2006 encounter with Ricardo Mayorga, both of which registered 935,000 buys.

    The De La Hoya vs. Mayweather junior middleweight championship fight will be replayed this Saturday night, May 12 at 10:00 p.m. ET/ PT & 9:00 p.m CT on HBO.

    The rebroadcast will include a studio show hosted by Jim Lampley and Larry Merchant with new interviews of Mayweather and De La Hoya, plus highlights from the groundbreaking “De La Hoya/Mayweather 24/7” reality series.

    The program will be replayed on HBO2 Sunday, May 13 at 8:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. and Tuesday, May 15 at 11:30 p.m. Both times are ET/PT.

    %%%%%%%%%

    I'm much more of an MMA fan, but those are pretty impressive PPV numbers. The top UFC event is still under 1 mil, I think.

    Me either bro. I don't know what fight he was looking at but Mayweather won every single round if I'm not mistaken....if anything, he won all of them (according to the scorecards) except 1 or two AT MOST.
