I had plans to do a whole Cinqo de Mayo Day as the Kentucky Derby is also on today but the wife (who is 7 months pregnant) wasn't feeling up for it. I'm not a pusscake, just considerate...lol the local watering hole always has a warm seat available though :-D Enjoy your evening light this!

Rod, I don't agree with the personal decisons Tyson has made in his life but I consider him the best boxer of my time. Only fight left worth watching will be Mayweather vs Pacquio if they only can agree on terms.

<br /><br />I used to love watching Tyson. He lost it when he was incarcerated. Rod, why would you include Douglas? His father died, Tyson didn't train because he thought it would be a walk in the park, Douglas beat Tyson and them did nothing.
What happened to the days of Sugar Ray, Tyson, Holyfield, Buster Douglas, Lennox Lewis, etc... I know most don't like Tyson, however his fights were always good (for the most part). Boxing isn't the same anymore...
One decent fight does not let him into the ranks of the greats, IMHO.

I agree with Rod, boxing is not what it used to be, I credit most of that to Don King and pay per view. Most fans won't drop the money and take the chance that the fight will be lousy or over in 10 seconds. I don't have enough friends to split the cost. I did enjoy the UFC on Fox last night, some pretty good matches.

I have to see this fight on TV when it replays on HBO. I was at the fight and saw a totally different bout. The crowd was about a 85/15 for Cotto and they, I mean we...we were loud as hell. Once I heard the scores, something defintely was amiss. No way in hell did the scores resemble the fight that I have just seen. Excellent fight nonetheless. At least Bieber and Floyd got hit with some Corona on their way back into the lockerrooms LOL
I think what hurt Cotto was him chasing Mayweather around for the first 6 rounds. He was trying to fight Mayweathers fight. Watching it on TV you can clearly see Cotto running out of steam and Mayweather looking like the freaking Matrix with Cotto's punches missing him by millimeters. Good fight though.
Mayweather holds one of the best records in boxing, there is nothing else to say, he is a great boxer. End of conversation, stats dont lie.
Deon - a little bais because Mayweather is from Michigan? LOL. He's a hall of famer boxer.
