    I used to pray PBF would take a beating every fight where I thought it was possible, especially when he fought Diego. But when you watch Mayweather fight other proven top notch fighters, he's on a different level than they are. At this point i'm resigined to knowing that he is the best pound for pound and there will be a new flavor of the month who comes along, and PBF will knock him around abit like usual. What's even more impressive is the way he holds back to make fights look competitive. That fight with Judah. I mean c'mon, it looked like he was half fighting for the first 5 rounds, and then as soon as he turned it on, Super Zab looked like a second rate fighter, which he is not. Mayweather is another one of those polarizing atheletes, but this one is the absolute real deal. Until age catches up with him and he loses some of both his speed and power, I very much doubt he will "duck" anyone. at this point it's all about money and notoriety for him. He takes fights he thinks will give him the most. That's why he would love for the De La Hoya fight to happen. I'm a De La Hoya fan, and while this would be such a huge super fight event, i'm kind of hoping De La Hoya doesn't take this fight. If Hopkins dropped him with a body punch, imagine what Pretty Boy will do to him.

He fills seats for wateva reason and thats why he is even still in the UFC today. He has been spoon fed his whole career and lost almost everytime he stepped up to a real challenge. Alright now with that being said. I think him accepting a 3rd shamrock fight is a huge mistake on his part. He has absolutely nothing to gain and everything to lose. From a business stand point his contract is backloaded with PPV buys and what not, throught that out the window with a Spike right. He CANNOT do any to shammy aside from murdering him that he hasnt done before. And what happens if the ole timer pulls off a miracle knee/arm bar and wins? Where does tito go from there? Supposedly Tito's in ring persona is just an act and he is a completely different person outside the ring. But to me this just seems like a personal vendatta and Tito just wants to beat Ken up. While alot of u may see this as balls, it may very well be a lack of brains. There is no bigger road block to a Title shot for Tito then if he dropped a third fight to retiring shell of a fighter Shamrock. But hey maybe it does make since now, he wants to wait till Chuck/Wandy arent at the top of the division. But anyways just lemme know what you guys think? personnally i think its kinda nice of him giving shammy another crack but business wise this could wind up being a disaster for tito.
    I don't think it a block in the road to a title shot, Tito says himself he loves having fights, keeps him training and in shape, So It's a good move to take a fight before your tite shot. then your in the mind set of fighting and your not rusty. His title fight with Liddel is eyed for feb. 2007 if Silva/liddel can't happen then Tito steps in for his title shot then. So I think for Tito to take this fight is good, so he wont be rusty and will be ready to fight. Thats just MP tho.

Gatti is one of my favorite boxers of all time but he is not the most skilled fighter ever to be champ. He is a brawler that matches up well with some but will always get beat by technically superior fighters.

    I agree that it should be Oscar then Mosley and I would love to see PBF lose to both but don't think it would happen. Oscars best chance is the left hook. That will drop anyone 154 or under if he connects. His left hook is one of the prettiest punches in boxing. I don't know if Mosley has the knock out power to KO PBF. It would take a lot of body punhes and basically a punishing first 8-10 rounds to set up the upset.
    ya I dont like PBFs attitude either, I still wanna see him fight both Shane and Oscar though and soon.

    It is pretty funny how this Tito thread turned into a boxing thread about PBF, Mosley and Oscar. Much better topic and discussion imo.

I think hes P4P the best boxer out right now but I do not like him one bit, he called Mosley a warm-up match to Oscar which IMO is BS, 2nd fight being questionable or not.. Mosley beat Oscar twice.. if you ask me it should be Oscar fighting PBF and then Mosley.

    But Yeah margarito v PBF is def one i would buy if it happened. I thought he talked it over with floyd senior and they decided it would be ok to fight. But regardless if PBF fought Oscar of Margarito I would buy it. Not so interested to see him fight mosley or spinks.

Wouldn't they be picking his fights I thought they were managing him. And DLH has basically earned the right to fight whoever whenever. I find it hard to believe that Oscar is ducking PBF. I think PBF probably wins that fight but Oscar has fought everyone that wanted a shot.
