    I really like Tony Harrison. This guy has a big future if he can do what hes been doing to lesser fighters against the top guys, then we got a really big future star on our hands

    I am Filipino but was so disappointed with Manny. He assured the Filipino people of a clear win with Mayweather and failed. He should have make changes to his boxing carreer by getting out of Top Rank, replaced Freddie his trainer withva younger qualified healthy trainer, then get out of his Born Again ideology of which he was brainwashed by the Filipino Pastors because he has money and he surely have given them millions to help in their church cause. Then,big Manny can do this and now he is his own boss, tell Mayweather I am ready for a rematch but it will not be in Las Vegas to play it safe. Insist it will be in Macau, Manila or Dubai and with 3 independent non American judges. This way, he has a big chance of beating Mayweather.

      That will never happen. He wasn’t the A-side and couldn’t make demands last fight and now being beaten he will NEVER get to make any demands of Mayweather. On top of that I highly doubt he’d even be blessed with a rematch at all.

      Well why would FM fight anywhere else when hes guarantee /favored by ref/judges /compubox, the only why ANY fighter can give blemish on fm record is to knock him out,So you said it have it somewhere else so he can get a fair chance. Thats Exactly what happened He was doing wrestling type Tatics that the ref recognized as NOT DEFENSE & DOESN’T BELONG IN BOXING ANYWAY, SO HE NEVER GOT A point deduction, If THE Ref Would nt Tolerate, Then Fm would of stopped n would have to actually run away then fight when pac was in front of him,Broner Didn’t get Away w it. Its not pac fault fm was scared to exchange and just Held ,him yhe entire fight.The REF ALLOWED IT,2LOW BLOWS ,HE GOTAWAY W EVERYTHING,THEN WHEN U SCORE A BOXING ROUND ,ITS THE PERSON WHO IS THE AGGRESSOR & THEN COUNT ONLY “LANDED PUNCHES ” IN WHICH JUDGES &COMPUBOX WERE COUNTING ALL THESE PUNCHES THAT THEY,SHOULD NT. OF BEEN ,IF YOU THOUGHT FM WAS LANDING ALL THOSE LEFT JABS “NO ” ,PERHAPS YOU SHOULD WATCH EA ROUNDS N SOUND COUNTING “LANDED ONLY” AND PAC ACTUALLY SCORED MANY ROUNDS, THE 1ST SCORE CARD THEY HAD,BEFORE THEY SWITCHED THE NAMES WAS CORRECT, FM SHOULD NT OF WON ,BUT LIKE I SAID NOBODY WILL WIN,UNLESS THEY KO HIM,SO NOBODY CAN ASSIST HIM AND GIVE HIM THE WIN.THATS NOT PAC S FAULT, NONE OF IT,FREDDIE IS A TRAINER TO MANY. PAC WON THE FIGHT ANYWAY, ITS NOT A LEGIT WIN FOR FLOYD ANYWAY, fm is a product of a smart Marketing scheme,His record shouldn’t be perfect, he has lost n he should have a draw if not be pac at least then w Maidana 1,If he had 1 loss then NOBODY WOULD CARE TO WATCH A FM FIGHT,HES THE MOST HATED ,IT THE UNKNOWN PPL WATCH TO SEE WAS GONNA HAPPEN, IT NO BC HES EXCITING! POLITICS!
