Now, we get Pacquiao/Marquez II? Insanity. (Also it should be noted we weren’t forced to watch the “new” John Ruiz come back and clinch his way to victory)
Boxing is stepping it the fuck up. Have you noticed all the ‘MMA resulting in the death of boxing’ talk has stopped? If anything I think competition from MMA has helped. I mean you can actually extend the list farther than above going back to (the dismal) Klitschko/Ibragimov four weeks ago and Pavlik/Taylor II the week before that. Seriously, I couldn’t be prouder to be a fan of boxing right now.
Oh, and I'll say Pac in 9.
Don't forget that in the next few months up 'till June, we're also gonna see:
Katsidis/Casamayor- For the Ring/Lineal Lightweight championship
Calzaghe/Hopkins- For the Ring/Lineal Light Heavyweight championship
Cotto/Gomez- For the WBA Welterweight title
Cintron/Margarito- For the IBF Welterweight title and a shot to unify
Kessler/Miranda- Just for the hell of it
Mijares/Montiel- WBA/WBC Super Flyweight unification bout
Mosley/Judah- Just for the hell of it
