Interesting grammar, or maybe I missed something, and it wasn't the fight.
Cheers, Steve

Well I was watching the fight when I posted that, it was a decent round 5 but before that it was putting me to sleep. At the end Manny won by decision after he had knocked Bradley off his feet twice during the fight.

And it was a unanimous decision, as should have been the Mayweather fight. IMHO

The game was on delay.  I went to my laptop to see the round scores only to see that Pacman won.  I stopped watching the boring fight then.

Pacman, I believe, is not done and wants at least 3 more years of fighting.  He's adopted the mayweather style of fight.  Just dance and dodge the punches till you get a chance and land some hits.  I doubt we see another knockout in the remaining fights of Manny.  He wants to last long and keep getting the wins.  Fighting like Mayweather is the way to go.  Less hits to your head and as long as you get the wins, it only helps your image...historically. 

I much prefer the younger Manny fighting style.  His pre "coming to Jesus" and leave it all out on the canvas, kill the oppponet fighting plans were much more entertaining.  If he still had that mindset when he fought Floyd, I think he would have won.  More than a couple times he had Floyd against the ropes and was unloading on him only to back off.  He lost the "killer instinct". 

I'm still a fan of Manny, but just don't see his fights as entertaining as they once were.

Hey Joel, we watched a live stream on FB,,,,,,,some one doing a naughty,,,,,,,I was driving but caught most of it while driving back from Brisbane to the Sunny Coast, you are right, there was a lot more dancing this time around,,,,,,,,,,time to retire,,,,,,,,how many hundreds of millions can one want as well as a political career? A true tough guy with a bright future not only in PI but all over the world, a well known and respected face, hope he does well in the future for himself and PI.
Cheers, Steve

I watched the fight on GMA. Wow, what a terrible way to broadcast a fight. It's just a single 3 minute round, then immediately followed by 5-7 minutes of commercials. Then the next 3 minute round, followed by 5-7 minutes of commercials, etc.. Especially since I thought the fight was mostly boring (as I find most of Boxing, which is why I watch the UFC) - it made me just want to turn off the TV and just go google the results. I stuck with it...but damn was it painful.

I downloaded a HD version last night and watched this morning commercial free and in English. Although I knew the final outcome because of Facebook I had not watched any of the fight prior to this morning and thought it was a pretty fight. I was more impressed with the after fight comments made by both guys, both were stand up class acts, very impressive.
