    Just curious on others' prediction for the Mayweather vs Canelo fight.

    Mayweather by UD is my opinion.

    all May does anymore is win by UD ... if he actually knocked someone out (that was paying attention), it would be worth watching his fights.

    I'm actually a Mayweather "fan" and agree he's gotten a bit boring... that said I'm gonna drop a few $$ on Canelo on ML (+235 right now). I like to bet on the underdog in boxing/MMA occasionally in hopes "something" will happen? Worked for me the other night with Silva/Weidman!

    Over 11.5 rounds is -320 and Under +260 right now... I may throw something on the under too. Just in case...

    Ill donate a $100 on Canelo via KO. As a Mayweather fan I know hes going to decision it but after Anderson just went in dry on my bankroll, I dont think I have the balls to make a huge wager on Money.

    I'll be in town but can't really afford tickets. Probably place a minimal bet on the underdog. Line is too much for me to bet mayweather even though I believe he will win.

    J wish HBO was covering the PPV.
    I could not stand the Showtime crew.
    How many times does one need to see on screen Neil Patrick Harris with the cross promotion for How I Met Your Mother.
    Or Julie Chen from The Talk & Big Brother.
    I want to watch boxing!
    Only positive that I have for Showtime is they do show the ring card girls.:wink2:
    HBO never did that.

    Agreed, all it is UD and quite boring. However, as a person trying to make return on his money like a mutual fund or stock. I am going with Mayweather. I'm guessing the line will drop from -270 to -180 since everyone hates Mayweather. Easy way to make a large return on your money. :beer:

    I know for the Guerrero fight, Mayweather went from -800 to -600. I'm guessing the line will go from -270 to about -200 or lower. In terms of UD, I think the line will be worse due to the fact that Mayweather likes to dance, dominate and take it to decision. I think most people are going to take Canelo due to his size, power and hate for Mayweather. I hear he walks around 170. Loosing this much water weight before a night is not the best for the body.

    Remember Mayweather signed a huge deal with Showtime for 6 fights. I'm assuming Showtime will have an influence on the fight if it goes to decision, which I think it will. This is pure conspiracy though.......

    When you are the best, everyone wants you to loose. Patriots, Heat, Yankees.......... It's a common theme for the "normal" person.

    Mayweather is too fast. To experienced. Ring IQ is too high.

    Canelo fights in spurts. Watch the Trout fight. He takes rounds off. And when he's not taking rounds off, he takes a minute of two of several rounds off. Mayweather boxes this guys ears off.

    Would everyone in here placing bets on Canelo please send a little bit of money to my PayPal account since you like throwing money away!!!!!!!!

    Yeah, I don't really think either fighter is going to get hurt (Mayweather by UD, of course) I just love me some Clubber Lang!

    Mayweather won't be taunting Canelo, though.

    Speaking of boxing. I'll be out there for the Mayweather fight. What sportsbooks offer the best selection of boxing bets?
