    Who is going to Mayweather/Pac II? Just talked the wife into it if it happens. Typical Floyd training got him the win and I think Pac wore himself out in the earlier rounds. Either way, was a decent fight but would've liked to see more.

    Mayweather said his last fight will be in September - any ideas who he will face? Do you think it will be a rematch broncofn? He won pretty easily for me.....

    Yes, I heard it will be his last fight also. And I believe it will be a rematch with Mayweather winning again to end a perfect career even though I hate to admit it.

    I am in vegas weekends 12 and 19 of September so could work out well. Love him or hate him he will go down as one of the best boxers of all time. As a. Brit I would like him to fight Khan or Kell. Brook - I would think that's unlikely though

    I don't see a rematch happening. There would have to be a ton of controversy about the fight this weekend in order to warrant a rematch.

    It will be interesting to see who they hype up for the next fight though.

    No rematch. They can't sell it. They could had two or three if this happened when it should've. The next one will probably be an easy pushover.

    There will be a rematch but not in Vegas.

    There is still a tonne of money to be made in the Asian markets. The North American market is tapped out.

    Mayweather promotions knew this going in.

    In recent years Manny has involved himself in other interests. He's a born again Christian. He plays and is on a pro basketball team in the Philippines. He sings and records songs. He's an elected congressman.

    There is none of that focused, hunger driven fierceness that many people remember.

    A re-match wouldn't change this. Manny has passed his prime. He knows this and I realized it last night.

    Both fighters respected each others accomplishments going up to this fight and probably mutually agreed to fight because the fans (and money hungry promoters) wanted it. But Manny (with his wife and family concerned for his well being) probably weighed all these factors in and said give the fans a fight but its not worth it to risk injury.

    The eye of the tiger is long gone in these two fighters. Mayweather will pick and choose who he fights to maintain a clean no loss record. Manny in my opinion wants to move on to other things in his life, rightfully so.

    My thoughts exactly. Pac has too many other things going on in his life to concentrate on a sport that is beyond his prime.

    I was convinced there would be a draw this time to force a rematch to have an even bigger payday. However after watching that last night I don't think there will be one.

    However I think that Floyd will fight twice more so he can try to get to 50-0. He'll fight some tomato can in Sept and then once the new arena in Vegas is complete.

    IF a re-match does come to fruition then I will come to Vegas to see it. I have never seen a fight live in Vegas and this would be one that I would like to see.

    Exactly.

    Also it's going to be nearly impossible to mount the same excitement like prior to last nights fight. In the end, the fight was a snoozer and not worth the hype or the money it made. Yes, I paid $99 to see it. I won't pay that much again and I think I'm not alone.

    This fight was 1 and done and something that had to get done before each fighter hangs up the gloves.

    I don't think Manny's head was really into the fight. I never saw him with a game face. Press conference in march he was playing with his cell phone the entire time. During the stare down at the weigh in he was smiling and actually said 'Thank You' to Mayweather. Even during the fight, he was smiling.

    6 months from now they will both be officially retired.
