No, no, no, NO, NO!!!!!
This fight is exactly what's fucking wrong with boxing these days! God damn it, there's better guys for both guys to fight to make tons of money in and around their divisions to begin with! What the hell!? The year started really good man, bad ass, meaningful fights were being made, culminating in September with the Casamayor/Marquez, Campbell/Guzman, and Diaz/Katsidis fights, and of course highlighted by Cotto/Margarito, and what the hell do we end up with in the last part of the year!? Friggin' Mosley/Mayorga on PPV, Pavlik practically being arm-twisted into moving up to Winkyweight (170) to fight old man Hopkins, and this shit!?
Can't Oscar just wait for Cotto at least? Couldn't he at least be the one to move up to middleweight to face Pavlik, and let Pavlik defend his belts? Couldn't Pacquiao at least fight Soto or Valero in November instead of being lined up to get tooled by a MUCH larger Oscar? Fucking hell, I knew the cold war between Top Rank and Golden Boy had thawed to the point where good fights were getting made, but this is straight up circle jerking right here.
And I'm a huge Oscar fan here, but this is absolute bullshit! I can't fucking stand the shit he's been doing this past year, or trying to do! I simply can't defend him anymore, but the sooner he retires, the better for everyone, seriously. Same goes for Hopkins.
All I know is that I had better be hearing that Pacquiao/Campbell or Pacquiao/Marquez III and Pavlik/Abraham are guaranteed to take place early next year, if I have to put up with this faggotry that is taking place in my favorite sport.
