he flew a little under the radar when he was coming up. he looked a beast against campillo, and though his last opponent (Cornelius white was the name, i think) wasn't anybody of note, he looked scary. he's quicker than i thought he'd be. a lot quicker. and he throws five or six punches at once. if he can do that for 12 rounds he'll outwork hopkins at the least.
that sounds amazing. i remember your history section post saying hearns wasn't very nice , but i'm glad everybody else was cool and hanging out.
i'm gonna be @ the mgm as well. i'm hoping many of the luminaries will be back out for this one. hopefully i'll get a chance to shake a few hands. i get to some of the big fights in new england and new york, but this will be my first bonafide "big fight."
it's gonna be me and my dad. in the states we have "father's day," and this is my way of thanking him for being my go to guy for the last 26 years.
My guess is at worst, they will be the same. But the chances are they will be more expensive as this fight is a lot bigger.
I can't even fathom the turnout for this fight. The Mayweather-Guererro fight was big fight obviosly because it's Floyd but I wasn't expecting the weigh-in to be as rammed packed as it was. Hell, the MGM did an open training session thing for every fighter on the card apart from the main event so Mares, De Leon, Rosado, Love, Santa Cruz etc did a bit of pads in the on show ring in the lobby and the turn out was insane. That's the magnitude of these fights.
Met so many people out there, met everyone on the card expect Floyd and Guererro, Broner, Hearns, Roger Mayweather, Floyd Sr, Trout, Rafael Garica, Richard Schaefer, and many more. All just hanging around the MGM.
awesome, man. thanks for the insight. i'm glad you enjoyed fight week for mayweather guerrero. that must have been tremendous. it doesn't look like the prices have been released yet, so i guess that will determine where i end up. the pre release ticket prices are nuts .
i'm going to try and go to mayweather - alvarez, and i was wondering a bit about the seating. i've looked at a chart and some still pictures of the arena, and it doesn't look like a huge place. is there anything you think i should know before i buy tickets? how are the views? i'm looking at the "upper and lower bowl" areas. it doesn't look like it's going to be a cheap weekend no matter where i sit
