Hi Guest we're sorry for the downtime but the site should be up and working now...

Yup. Left on good terms.
Damn. Newbie has him all bruised.
is there any reliable link available for the fight?
round 4 to pac man
Underwhelming. Pretty much expected though I guess.
Floyd Mayweather - The Jose Mourinho of boxing.
Defensive. Boring. No one likes him, but he doesn't give a shit as long as he takes the fight and his money.
Predicted this waaayy to early
Thank God didn't stay up for this
Masterclass from Floyd, better man won. Unlucky Pacman.
Floyd nullified his game plan from the first bell. Fought the fight on his own terms and dictated. Floyd did what he does best. My heart said Manny but head always had Mayweather taking this on points. Was expecting much more from the Pacman but Floyds defence/counter is just too good.
So can Amir Khan defeat him. :lol
People who think Floyd is boring are clearly casual fans.
Absolutely let down by Manny's performance. He needed to take more chances, could not understand the game plan of trying to out box Floyd and fight on the outside. Manny needed to constantly rush in and take chances but he was too nervous about Floyd's right hand.
You can call Floyd's approach boring, cowardly but it works. The onus is on the opponent to counter it.
He's more Tiki Taka Barca. Calling him Chelsea is such a disgrace it almost deserves a two year ban :lol
Lol stop being a hipster, he is a boring fighter.
Though in all fairness pacquio was more culpable for this stinker.
Lol. I agree, his punch output was almost halved in this fight. All the excitement came from Floyd, but as usual can't blame humble little Pac for anything.
I don't follow boxing, but who is the best these days? People in Britain seem to be fond of Aamir Khan.
Didn't say Chelsea. Said Mourinho. Mou got plenty of titles and have won a lot and no one can take those achievments away from him, same with Floyd. Still quite boring IMO though.
Barca would be Spurs in NBA. Tyson in Boxing or so.
Tyson lmao. No you wouldn't your floyd. You control football by dominating the ball, floyd controls boxing by dictating the pace and range.
A lot of people found Barca boring, the purists don't. It's the exact same situation with Floyd.
Controlling the game by dominating possession is just a facet of the game which enables Barca to attack the other team to oblivion. Never controlled to counter or hold, controlled possession to launch attacks and score so that the opposition wouldn't get to run free.
I don't think there are many who found Barca 2008-12 boring except those who just dislike the team and want it to lose all the time and can't find enjoyment in good football :shrug
The last paragraph is exactly the same situation floyd finds himself in. Just a shame you're labelling him with the same stuff people labelled Barca with.
I missed the fight. Really wanted Manny to win this one. Oh well...
Lahori get off ur knees..
I got the flu man, head was pounding more than a piñata last night.
I facplamed cuz u felt bad about missing the fight. I also missed it and thank God I made the right choice
Same man, I slept an hour before while waiting
I'm not sure how a die hard Passionate boxer lover like yourself will be able to forgive yourself for this.
May weather isn't bad.
Anyone up for Mayweather vs Khan?
Is there a chance of it happening? Khan has been knocked out by a couple of boxers, I don't think he'd give much of a challenge to Floyd. Guy is a machine.
Still laughing at Manny's interview. :lmao
"He didn't really do anything" :lol
Apparently there is..
Britain's Amir Khan says Floyd Mayweather's manager told him "let's get that fight on" after the American beat Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas.
Damn, wouldn't really mind that fight, my brother is a huge fan of Amir Khan so he'll enjoy it.
Is there an estimated date or anything? Mayweather said he has one more fight left with HBO/Showtime, so I'd assume sometime this year?
I just became a fan two days ago, they did such a good job at hyping up the fight they gained a new fan. :lol
And it would have to be Mayweather because he's been undefeated for 48 fights now.
One more fight with Showtime. September, 2015 is the month.
Though, Khan says he can't fight then as Ramadan falls just months before.
Was a great fight to watch. I was supporting Mayweather and so i am not labelling it a borefest like the casual fans and not saying Mayweather ran away like the Paq fans.
The ring is there, Paq was poor at trying to close it down and poor at cornering FM or keeping him in a corner. Floyd fought a great fight, i think most people are upset because they though FM would be given a tough fight and they were hoping for him to lose but instead he walked the fight as easy as Chelsea walked the league.
Khan does not deserve the fight with Mayweather. He is fight Chris Algieri ffs. I feel all Khan is doing is trying to avoid a defeat and hoping for a big payday. I am waiting to see who FM will fight in september but will be saddened and surprised if it is Khan.
FM has proven his status as one of the ATG, in my opinion, and it was very disappointing to hear the post match interview from Paq and also the excuses that came after it.
I'm surprised Floyed won't try to get to 50... Wouldn't it feel weird to be stuck on 49 with 50 just one win away?...
Lol, anyone who thinks this fight was a stinker gets labled a 'casual'. As for whether Khan deserves a shot Pacquiao was 3-2 when he got a pop. TBH i'd put money on the fact that it will be a hell of a lot more competitve than #maypac and iam themost vocalcritic of khan here.
Khan should get a fight either with Pacman or Money. Straight as it seems.
Why should Khan get the fight? He has been skirting and dancing around opponents for a long time. He fought in may 2013 and didn't fight again until april 2014. After the two losses he has fought no one of note. Even Devon Alexander had two losses under his belt when Khan fought him.
Maidana beat Broner and was given a shot Vs Mayweather. Khan knew MayPaq was happening and should have known his next fight could get him the big one, so what does he do? He fights Chris Algieri. What has Khan done to prove he deserves to fight Mayweather? I honestly have no idea why people keep bringing his name up apart from 'his pace will bother Mayweather, his style is perfect to defeat mayweather' Yet the same people were saying the same things about Paq vs Mayweather.
He didn't fight cause his career was almost over and from a KO artist he was turning to a defensive strategist. Same could be said about Badr Hari. It takes a lot of time.
