It's a really cynical fight that's being made for the sake of lining both men's pockets. I blame Mayweather more for this fight, but Oscar's to blame for eventually agreeing to this rematch in the first place. He's complicit in placing Mayweather into an overhyped limelight that he's only barely begun to earn considering his only good wins of recent have been a faded Oscar and a game but overmatched Hatton. Eventually, the people will catch onto Mayweather's game and turn against him, the same way they caught onto Tito Ortiz for ducking Chuck Liddell all those years. Oscar could have, and should have, used his clout to shame Mayweather into fighting Cotto or Margarito by stepping away from him.
I dunno though, maybe Oscar really is fighting for pride, maybe he really does believe he can beat Mayweather this time around, maybe he was truly dissatisfied with his performance and that he's busting his ass even more to not gas out and fight the fight of his life with whatever he has left. Somehow though, I don't think that's the case.
This fucking PPV better be loaded to the damn gills with quality fights. I want the winner of the Juan Diaz/Joel Casamayor fight against Nate Campbell for the undisputed lightweight championship. I want Jorge Linares unifying his title with one of the other titlists at featherweight. I want Victor Ortiz getting his title shot against a Junior Witter or the winner of the Holt/Torres rematch. Simply put, the damn card needs to be fucking loaded to wipe away the cynical greed and disdain for us boxing fans.
