    Thoughts, predictions on the fight?

    Mayweather's awesome, no doubt, but I don't think he has the power to put Oscar on the canvas. That said, it will come down to technical boxing, an area in which both excel. Mayweather is fast as crap, but Oscar is no slouch..and he certainly won't be able to embarrass him the way he did Baldomir:eek3:

    I have to say, I've never been more excited about a fight:bowdown:

    Hmm.. the thing is, we know Oscar has KO power, but we don't really know what kind of a chin Mayweather has. He hardly ever gets hit.

    Both great boxers (not punchers). Don't see Mayweather having the power to KO Oscar. Might be able to get a decision. Haven't seen much boxing in the last few years with the MMA explosion, but saw Mayweather's last fight.

    I need to put this in my Outlook calendar.

    I really hope Mayweather gets KO'd. He fought a coward's fight against Baldomir even though it was the 'smart' thing to do. For all the talk he does and the comparisons he makes with himself to people like Sugar Ray Robinson, he doesn't display it.

    I agree and I don't. On the one hand, it was not a particularly entertaining fight to watch, but on the other, it's boxing, not to be confused with UFC.

    Boxing and technical ability are synonymous --obviously you have your heavyweight exceptions (Klitschko is not among them), but I'd hardly call them boxers-- and Saturday's fight was a masterful display of technique, albeit a unique one at that.

    I used to be a big boxing fan, but really lost interest as I got into MMA. I couldn't even tell you who any of the boxing champions are these days...

    Boxing has degenerated, but Oscar and Mayweather are phenomenal, and would stack up favorably against any of the past greats.

    BTW, Oscar's promotional company set this up.

    Oh believe me, I appreciate the skill involved and its effectiveness. I just can't for the life of me enjoy watching it.

    And that explosiveness is why i love the smaller guys, De La Hoya and Mayweather in particular.

    Read what I said. I understand its usefulness and the skill involved, I just don't enjoy watching it.
