Did anybody see the Morales V Pacquiao fight last night?
I just saw it and wow, definately one of the best ever.
First time Morales has been stopped in his career. Looks like it could be the end of an era.

Yeah,I saw it and thought it was a fantastic fight.Pacquiao was wonderful,quick and powerful and really the fight came down to Morales' condition and he just couldn't handle the pace in the 10th and ran out of steam.Ye,it does look like the end of the legendary Mexican.

Cant wait for March 4 and Calzaghe-Lacy fight and also Nelson-Maccarinelli bout.
So,who do you all think will come through these fights?

The two old guys, who are already thinking about retirement, will lose to the two younger, hungrier guys.

Softy i'm with you mate, can't wait for the calzaghe fight.
Just like the Hatton and Tszyu fight, it's the first really big test he faces, i think he will finally show his true class and beat Lacy.

It will be an extremely tough fight for Calzaghe though as Jeff Lacy is currently one of the hottest fighters in the world and has cruised through his last few bouts.His demolition of Robin Reid,for example.

Still,I hope Calzaghe can come through but am not sure he will.

What are your thoughts on Ricky Hatton and who do you think he shall fight next?

I think ricky Hatton is the best boxer Britain has produced in years, I never counted Lennox as British due to him winning the Olympics for Canada.
I think that Hatton should fight Mayweather personally as that would be an unbelievable fight and i believe the hardest one he could take.
But Junior Witter is the mandatory challenger for Mayweathers belt so Hatton might be forced to fight him. I would love to see Hatton fight Witter as well due to all the mouthing off Witter has been doing.

Who do you think he should fight?

I think a Hatton-Mayweather clash would be breathtaking and I pray to God that it will happen but the danger is that Mayweather will move up to Welterweight as his plans are to be a five-weight world champ.If not Mayweather,I'd love to see him fight Arturo Gatti or Miguel Cotto and of course,whip the face of the terrible Junior Witter.

I think that if Mayweather moves up to Welterweight it will be a real shame. Don't know why he's dodge the fight as it's the one most people want to see. Agree with you on Hatton fighting Cotto as well, as that would also be great.

i went to that - twas a great night - even though EVERY fight on the undercard was complete crud and the MEN was baking and the bars were set up in such a way it litterally took an hour to get a drink.

no i did - honest. still have the ticket stub i can scan if proof is required.

cost us £120 a ticket though, through some dodgy website. still, we talked to people that paid much more.


£120 and we got a seat up near the gods!!!
