I am hearing Cotto-Pac by December contingent upon Cotto winning vs Clottey......if its at 147 I don't like it for Pac. Won't count him out ever after tonight, but Cotto has excellent timing, an excellent jab, maybe the best body work in the sport, a very good chin and should be the way bigger man.

And please don't point to the Margo loss when discussing this because that has pretty much nothing to do with a Pac-Cotto fight.

Pac-Man is going to be great if not already great for the sport of boxing. He's going to bring it back from the death, think tiger woods to golf on a lower scale. the torch has officially been passed from de la hoya to pacquiao let's see if they could make something happen with it.

David Haye needs to get his face out there more and there you go.

As for a marketable American heavyweight...I'm still waiting for that guy.

The problem though is he is definitely resurrecting it for boxing fans, but for casual sports fans I'm not sure he will draw in new crowds. He definitely has the fighting style to gather new fans but I don't think enough fans especially in the U.S. will know about him. He spends all of his time in his country, he doesn't speak good English so he won't have interviews and commercials in America, he won't make awards appearances, and he isn't the prettiest guy for marketing purposes. I will say though I said many of the same things about Alex Ovechkin when he was coming into the NHL.

When talking about star power, though. Mayweather was as big as they come and even he couldnt resurrect the sport. Granted, boxing was relevant again when he fought De La Hoya but, he hasnt been able to bring boxing back into the mainstream. The casual fan wants to see power/knock outs. The only real hope is that a charismatic knock out guy comes along. David Haye fits the bill but, as dumb as it sounds, the fact that he isnt an American fighter hurts just a tad. Waiting on the next Tyson pretty much. haha.

I have my doubts as well, my friend. I sure as hell hope he wins, though. It's hard to predict because, he barely has his feet wet in the division. Smart money is on Wlad...but, I'm atleast hopeful. :D

It would be nice to get a fresh face involved thats for sure......and I really hate Chris Arreola and wish HBO would stop shoving him down our throats.

A little off topic but from last night's undercard obviously Chris Gray is crap competition but Erislandy Lara is such an intriguing prospect. Still though it was very evident that he still has lots to learn about adjusting to the pro game from amateur boxing. The body and skills are there though.

CNN International is reporting that preliminary numbers suggest huge PPV buys for Pacquiao-Hatton.

[E]arly indications from cable companies were that the scheduled 12-round light-welterweight bout could get as many as two million buys.

Man this sucked to see. Expected but it still wasn't nice, Hatton had a talent and I think he could well have gone on to be elite (his last 2 losses prove he is in the tier below now) but eating garbage and drinking 8 pints of guinness a day do nothing for you as a boxer. It's a shame but I hope to god he retires now, there's no one left for him to fight.

Unless he wants to put Khan in a coma I hope he calls it a day.

Props to Manny though, the guy is just a beast and I see him destroying Mayweather Jr if they ever get at it.

Does every athlete need to have a nickname these days. The worst are recycled nicknames. Stop calling him Pac Man. That's lame and old. If you need to call him a nickname try something like "PacquiOW" or some shiz... :D

By the way, people who paid to see that got pwned.

Manny has a bunch of nicknames...but, as far as in the public's eye. Pacquiao was Pacman before anyone even knew who Adam Jones was. I know Adam got his nickname from his grandma or some jazz like that but, Manny was a professional boxer going by Pacman well before Adam Jones was even in college.
