Just realized, there's really not any super fights on the horizon for this whole year Mayweather DeLaHoya is a total joke, and Mayweather Cotto is not even set and probably won't be. Not much to look forward to at the moment.

Ermm you may be right, but Marquez-Vazquez IV could happen by the end of the year and that should be awesome. Some big fights should be setup for next year too; Floyd-Cotto, Haye-Wlad, JMM-Pac III...

This year has been fine for me. Its just these stupid lulls we have to go through.

I mean we've already had some great fights.

Jones vs Tito

Pavlik Taylor II

Pac Maruqez II

Marquez Vasquez III

just to name a few.

Casa vs. Katsidis
Margarito vs. Cintron II

Those were great too, i think Rayman means there isn't much to look forward for the rest of the year.

Right. Vasquez Marquez was one of the greatest fights I've seen. It simply can't be topped this year no matter what. I've got mixed feelings about them fighting again this year though.

Margarito-Cotto has the potential but i think Cotto boxes more rather than gets involved with Margarito. Marquez-Vazquez will certainly be very hard to top.

I would hope so, he's waited long enough, anymore protection and he might qualify for a couple of secret service

WHAT?!?!?!?!?
Its been great so far.

I'm looking forward to Mosley-Judah, Cotto-Margarito, and several others that are pending. Come on this year has been leaps and bounds better than 2006. 2007 may have spoiled you.

YOU WHAT :laugh:

Theres been some great fights and matchups this year already. For the last few months i recall a good fight every week including a top name. Even fights such as cotto vs gomez, hoya vs Forbes make a good view.
Then for the superfights Calzaghe vs Hopkins is probably at the top of the list. Then you have Pavlik vs taylor 2. Haye vs Maccarinelli.

Cotto vs Margarito looks promising.
Vasquez vs Marquez 4 is anouther one.
Then for the Hoya vs Mayweather rematch it will produce anouther huge view.

I think some may have misunderstood. I'm talking about the rest of 2008, and I didn't say there are NO fights coming, just nothing big. The ones mentioned just can't be considered big fights.

Just looking at all the fighters that are 35 and older, and the promising crop that's replacing them.

Paul Williams
Juan Diaz
Kermit Cintron
Katsidis

All have stumbled pretty badly. Definitely a void here. Not that boxing hasn't gone through a few of those, just an observation.

Heayweights?...Of course forget'em all unless Haye comes through.

Hey, no offense, but if you were entertained by Calzaghe/ Hopkins....Ugliest fight of the year, Oscar/Forbes....Most lopsided fight of the year.....Cotto/Gomez....Slaughter of the year, then it doesn't take much to impress you.

I talking about Big fights with great matchups Dammit!

Im not talking about entertainment. All them fights i mentioned where great views which any boxing fan would tune in for

No i thought the calzaghe hopkins fight was terrible but you obviously tuned in and it was a superfight at the end of the day
