Which of these "Box office" match-ups would you pay to see the most?
Manny Paquiao vs Floyd Mayweather
George St Pierre vs Anderson Silva
Lakers vs Heat (an NBA Finals Series)
Phillies vs Yankees (World Series)
Steelers vs Eagles (Pennsylvania Superbowl; Vick vs Steelers 3-4 defense)
North Carolina vs Kentucky (National Championship)
No Lakers vs Celtics ?
And how come you have a Steelers vs Steelers when you could have Steelers vs Ravens
But for foootball the best would be Colts vs Patriots
I meant Steelers vs Eagles
It would have to be between the Pacquiao vs Mayweather and the Silva vs St. Pierre
Pacquiao vs Mayweather by a country mile but everyday that goes by it seems more unlikely that it will happen. God i hate Mayweather he talks as if he is the best boxer ever (In his defence he is up there) but will not fight Pacquiao. If he actually beats Pacquiao then those conversations can start but I think he knows he can;t win so will never fight. Seems like a win/win situation to me. Either win or get your ass kicked and pocket like 50 million dollars. I'd be somebodys punching bag for that kinda dough!
Floyd's gonna fight Manny, he would of made 50 million 2 years ago but now he can possibly make 100 million.. its a business. When they do fight Floyd in a unanimus decision he's been on top for 15 years
Manny "Pangbansang Kamao" Pacman, vs. Floyd "the coward" Mayweather
mayweather always have excuses, he wants manny to take a drug test which by all means is disrespectfull to manny, he has troubles with the split of money, he wants to recieve 60 percent of the income, he thinks he is better than manny,
@Gman 1818, have you manny pacman fight?? he has been Unbeaten for 5+ years, dont know the exact number, he holds 8 belts! not to mention he is the only congressman/Boxer in the world,
Shame on you thinking it will be unanimus decision!
Manny fights a lot of washed up fighters you gotta admit it and you can't blame Floyd for wanting the test because you never see a fighter reach his prime at the end of his career in a sport where a lot of fighters use PED's. Floyd has only came close to losing once in his career.. I won't get too much into this argument cause by your argument being based off stats reminds me this is a basketball website. In the ring Floyd is an all-time great, best defensive fighter ever and one of the highest IQ's, clearly the recipe for a victory looking at his record
I am a filipino but I would like to see gsp vs silva more. Mayweather loves to counter and pacquiao loves to attack. It wont be as exciting as people expects it to be because mayweather wont go toe to toe cause he is more of a technical fighter but it will be extremely competitive only in the eyes of martial artists not on the eyes of the regular fans coz those fans loves to see knock out.
In the gsp vs silva fight it is hard to imagine what would happen because gsp is so unpredictable especially on what he did on koschek.
I like the defense of Floyd and he is a smart fighter, however, defensively Manny can take Floyd's punches he took Cotto's punch and nothing happened remember Manny's ear injury after the fight? Cotto is a more powerful puncher than Floyd. Floyd never fought someone as fast as Manny and as good in foot work.
It is interesting to see their fight coz of their style is opposite but somehow I see it will look more like the Mosley-Pacquiao fight.
yeah but Manny has never faced a fighter like Mayweather.. it makes no sense to think it would be like mosley-pacqiao when floyd dominated shane while shane just fought manny for a paycheck and ran the whole time.. Manny plays zero defense that's what makes his fights exciting but with floyd's counter punching ability he will break down him throughout the fight with that and body punches. Manny's an all-time great but very overrated because he's a good guy who boxes with a ufc style so it entertains the fans more.
You can't have a Steelers versus Ravens Super Bowl! You can't have a Colts vs. Pats Super Bowl either! They both play in the AFC, ya goofball! Well, there are a few I would willingly pay for, but I think IF the Lakers and Heat both made the Finals, I would be most likely to pay for that if I had to choose one. That would be a Finals I would love to see, but I am guessing if they charged PPV, the Super Bowl would cost the most, lol. Either way, they all have to get there before we can watch these big time match-ups many of us would love to see.
I'd go with GSP v. Silva as well. They're really unmatched in terms of their combination of skill and athleticism.
Manny Paquiao vs Floyd Mayweather
Defeated by Pacman
De la hoya, Hatton, Clotty,Cotto, Margarito, Mosley,
Though Pacman is in the dis.Advantage because Mayweather has been in that division for a while, pacman rose from Flyweight to Middleweight and back to Welterweight just to Face mayweather,
Much Controversy are between them, and thats why it will be the most anticipated match in Boxing,
Fun Fact: When Pacman's match is up, there is Zero Crime rate in the Philippines,
Hatton no defense at all, thats why Floyd dropped him too.. Clottey an Arum fighter had his gaurd up the whole time to get a good paycheck, Margarito is known for how he just trades punches and never blocks and I'm glad you noticed that De La Hoya wasn't in good shape for that fight he was old and drained to the lightest weight he's ever fought at. The thing people don't understand is that Floyd started at the same weight class as manny did and moved up in the ranks beating true champions but this was years ago but because of manny's recent success a lot of his fans don't know this because they just started watching boxing because of him. Tell Manny to stop fighting Floyd's leftovers and take the blood test so people will stop thinking he's on steriods... unless he's on steriods.
Manny accepted Mayweather's request for him to take the Drug test before the fight, i dont know what happened next and why it didnt work, some boxing analyst even said that mayweather is scared of Pacman, giving many excuses (from what i read in the News, sorry i forget about the site)
it will be an exciting fight, trading punches in 12 rounds
BTW manny is about to fight Marquez Again, All of the fights of manny was chosen by bob Arum, not Manny
Wait, for Lakers Heat, do I get to see one game, or the whole sieres?
But either way, Kentucky North Carolina, a lot more exciting and up and down tempo. Lakers Heat, Lakers are toooooooo slow, need an injection of new blood, and I think Kobe may have taken that seriously with his German Procedure.
It wins by a slight margin over the UFC fight because you'll always see great fights in mma on a monthly basis. While in boxing it's so hard to find match-ups like Floyd vs Manny guys that will have amazing promos for the build-up and most likely deliver with a great match which is such a rare thing for boxing now a days.
