    Wish this fight took place about 2-3 years ago. Hope Pac-man slaughters him.

    Wonder if somehow non MGM casinos will be showing this fight...a man can dream. In the past it was just MGM casinos for Mayweather fights.

    As Bronc said, its too little and too late. The winners here are the people who profit off the show that surrounds a money Mayweather fight.

    I know mayweather will win but if this fight happened a few years ago like it should have, I think it would make a much better fight. Of course I will order and watch it just for curiosity.

    Damn!!! Might have to change the plans for a week.

    Casinos were so alive, last fight. I mean packed. Great atmosphere to be around.

    This time, I would definitely go to the fight.

    Have to check with the boss.

    Exactly! And then we get to hear Mayweathers mouth about how he beat Pac after his prime.

    There have been and certainly are tougher fighters than Pac. The problem is they don't have the name recog or are not represented by the right "crooks" so Floyd isn't interested. Pac has a "punchers chance " that is it.

    Holy shot. Kentucky Derby in the afternoon and the best of of 2012 all in one day?

    Seriously though I'm contemplating a solo trip for this, should be a fun weekend. Anyone ever have any luck picking up a solo ticket to one of these? I know sometimes people get desperate in the hours leading up to a big ticket event and "dump" single tix for only three times face value.

    I've got a friend that trained in both camps. I sent out the plea tonight for tix. He was there the last fight and we didn't even know.

    Not going to happen this time....

    Good. Hopefully he buys 3 more Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet's from me! Actually a really nice and pretty regular guy at least to me. He is smarter than you think. Hey broncofn you can drive one of them up to his house with me. You can give him some advise on his mouth. Come on! :confused2:

    I hope he buys 10 more from you as its good for your business. Never said he wasnt smart etc. He actually does have great investments with his money. Sure, i will drive one over for you if you need me to. I dont have a problem with that.

    But he should have fought Pac a few years ago.

    Can't wait to hear about occupancy rates after that weekend. Circus-Circus already going for $199 for the night of 5/2 and MGM is sold out. Will be interesting the occupancy relative to a normal Mayweather or Pacquiao fight weekend which are large in their own right.

    I agree Pacquiao has a punchers chance but that is about it but I also think that's all he would have had if this fight happened even 5 years ago. Floyd is just too technically sound in his footwork and counter-punching game. Love him or hate him, he is one of the top technical boxers to ever step foot in the ring and I think he shows that technique again in a unanimous decision over Pacquiao.

    I agree broncofn. And of course you will drive up with me. Now I just have him to call me and order a few. We will see. Kind of scary flying home or driving to the bank with 500k in cash. That's how he pays. 20 25k chips would be easier.

    They are going to make 3 fights out of this Pacquiao will win this then Mayweather the 2nd fight and then may the best man win the 3rd fight.
