Manny Pacquiao VS. Ricky Hatton

8 posts in this topic

Ouch, son. Pacman isn't known for his KO power, but holy shebangabang.

Anybody else watch it?

I saw it!!! This guy is amazing, 3 knock downs in 2 rounds, the last one was insane, he was out before he hit the canvas. Hatton isn't a slouch either. I can't wait for him to fight Mayweather, it would be a shame if they didn't put that fight together before next summer.

leech, your avatar scares me. hahahaha Yes, Pacman is one of the fastest boxers Ive ever seen. It would be the ultimate match if Mayweather wins.

Pacquiao VS. Mayweather Jr.

Yeah, somebody needs to shut mayweather jr up, It'll be Pacman or Paul Williams, I hope he doesn't dodge those fights. Even Sugar Shane Mosely would be a decent match up with these guys. I think boxing has gained a little more interest in the last year, but they need to put some good fights together to keep the fans watching otherwise everyone will turn into mma fans.

Was a huge boxing fan for years, but gradually lost interest when MMA came about.

The mismatches just got to be to much to watch and the late replacements happen just about every non title match.

One guy is usually a young assassin and the other guy is a replacement with 7 minutes of training under his belt. He hasn't fought in 14 years, is 46 years old and has a record of 3-37-1 with no knock outs. Who wants to watch that kind of stuff?

I still tune in to Friday night fights to see who is fighting and if they look any good and if after the first round, it looks like it might be a fight, I'll watch it, but if it looks like a rout, I'll watch something else.

I heard Pacman's trainer on Jim Rome's radio show yesterday. I guess they were watching film and noticed that Hatton falls for certain feints on a regular basis. I saw highlights on Sports Soup last night and that uppercut with the follow-up seemed to come off a feint. Whatever the reason Pacman had Hatton's number early and often.

Mayweather is too big a wuss to fight anyone who has a chance of robbing one of his belts.

I'm no Mayweather fan, but he got those belts somehow and I think it was from fighting! Personally I just don't care for him.

    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
    • tip to a couple good friends   Len,
      Thank you for the stream recommendation, Len! I love the layout of this stream. Fished it from 3pm until 6:30pm.  My brother threw panther 9s and I threw 6s. We scored a brookie/brown/bow trifecta.    
    • Nelson has been down in recent years in terms of Walleye fishing. Depends on what kind of water you like to fish. The flowage and Moose Lake are good if you like fishing really dark water. Grindstone and Lac Courte Oreilles, maybe even Round are also good walleye lakes, but those lakes have very clear water and will fish completely different than the dark water river impoundments in the area.
    • I think it would be an offensive and experience(post season) up grade. I all reality, we dont have the means to make the trade.  We are nearly out of money(cap space) and only have 11 players.  We need food cheap role players right now.   Only way would be to package Wiggins with future draft picks.  If the analysts are actually correct on how improved we will be, those draft pick wont carry a ton of value.
    •   Well not as many as up by the Emily-Outing area but a few.
    • Still on the fence between going with the cabin or lodge, my dad has a normal lodge and it has tons of room which is great but it also is somewhat heavy for 1 guy to load and pull it seems. I mostly fish with just 1 other person and maby 25% of the time by myself so that was why I was leaning to the cabin which also seemed to have plenty of room for 2 it seemed to me. Also from what I understand the cabin will fit in chevy crew cab box and the lodge won't? I have a 04 crew cab short box so one more incentive for the cabin if thats true.
    • Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
    • The Chippewa flowage would be a great place to start. I will be honest. Walleye are not what I have ever chosen to Target when I fish up there but the flowage is a great fishery.    Nelson lake would be another choice.
    • I have had 3 of the otter pro xt's, a cabin, lodge and resort. I still have the resort and recently purchased the cabin. I have not had many different brand portables but have fished in other brands buddies have. They are the nicest portables I have personally owned and until I try something I like more I wouldn't change from them at all. The resort is heavy and not something I like dragging far by hand especially loaded with gear and much snow on the lakes. But it has tons of room and I have fished 4 people in it before, a little tight but doable. The cabin I purchased for more hand pulling and an extra for if I have people along. They are very warm and I have fished in them down to -30 deg F. A regular buddy heater keeps them plenty warm, if it isn't to cold or the house is banked well its easily t-shirt weather inside. The resort needs a big buddy heater for colder days sometimes due to the larger size but isn't terrible with a regular. Overall very happy with them all and have been very durable. Also no dripping of water from the ceiling. Highly recommend a set of hyfax for the bottom. I had over 1000 miles pulling my old lodge and they hyfax held up great but I always pulled on snow and not across asphalt much at all.   Changes I have made to them: - added a battery box and inside LEDs  - used stainless screws on the band that hods the fabric to the tub only because I don't like the look of the rusted screws.     If you think you'll be purchasing one I would recommend stopping at a Gander Mountain if you have one near by and getting a set of hyfax since they are going out of business there is a good amount of ice gear. I found hyfax recently there for $15 a set.
