Question Is Mayweather/Marquez Really Worth $49.95?

By Chris Williams: I just checked with my cable outlet and found out that they want $49.95 for viewers to purchase the pay-per-view card between Floyd Mayweather vs. Juan Manuel Marquez this Saturday night on September 19th. Iím really debating whether or not the fight is worth buying for that kind of cash. Really, it comes down to whether I want to pay the cash for the Mayweather-Marquez fight, because I could care less about seeing the worthless undercard fights.

The Mayweather vs. Marquez bout is interesting somewhat, but I have a bad feeling about this fight. Mayweather is bigger than Marquez and a lot faster. The size and speed advantage alone is problem enough, but when you factor in that Mayweather generally is a defensive safety first type fighter who absolutely abhors being hit in the face, you can extrapolate from there that Mayweather will probably hit and run all night long and frustrate the heck out of me.

Yes, I know, Iím supposed to love the way that Mayweather fights because heís such an artist. Heís practicing boxing in itís finest form by hitting and not getting hit in return. This is the mantra that Mayweather fans like to say when you tell them that heís boring. Iím sorry, but I donít like to see fighters that run and avoid getting hit.

I also donít like spinach, even though I know itís probably good for me. Watching Mayweather fight is like sitting down and eating a full course of spinach and then eating a plate of nasty liver for desert. Mayweather can take his boxing and shove it for all I care. I donít like to see pot shot artists, especially when I have to pay $49.95 to see them. All that shoulder roll and peek a-boo garbage is puts me to sleep every time.

According to rumor, Mayweather is supposed to come out looking more offensively inclined in this fight. I bet. Once Mayweather starts getting hit, heíll revert back to what heís always been Ė a runner. For the life of me, I donít see how Mayweather has become a pay-per-view star. Itís torture for boxing fans like me to have to shell out big cash to watch him fight some shrimp two to three divisions smaller than him. Of course Mayweather is going to win. Why wouldnít he?

Put Vitali Klitschko in with a light heavyweight like Roy Jones Jr. and tell me whoís going to win. When you pick a small guy to fight, youíre probably going to win. How come Mayweather doesnít fight someone like Shane Mosley or Miguel Cotto. Itís always the shrimps he ends up fighting, and I have to pay for it.

I already seen Chris John fight Rocky Juarez in February and was not happy with the 12 round draw between them. John won the fight, but the fight was still scored a draw. The fight took place in Houston, Texas, the home city for Juarez. Still, the fight wasnít all that interesting because it was so one-sided. Juarez looked horrible and I canít see him improving since then. I certainly donít want to see a rematch between them because thereís no suspense. John dominated Juarez last time and will do it again.

I could really care less to watch Michael Katsidis fight Vicente Escobedo in lightweight action. Escobedo may be a prospect/contender, but I donít see him as a future champion and he always get the tar kicked out of him it seems every time he fights. I wouldnít mind seeing him on free television, but not on pay-per-view. Already seen Katsidis fight, and for me, he looks shot.

Heís look steadily worse in the past year, losing to Joel Casamayor and Juan Diaz, and looking like garbage against Angel Hugo Ramirez and Jesus Chavez. Katsidis is another fighter I wouldnít mind seeing on free television but no pay-per-view. I donít see him as a future champion. Maybe if he dropped weight to the featherweight division, he might not beaten up bad.

Can't say wether its worth it or not till after tbh, Hatton/Pac while amazing (in outcome) wasn't even worth 15$ let alone 50$.. If i get a good fight from the main event im happy, the other fights im not so fussed if Judah was fighting Hatton on it i would be tho.

49$ is not worth if it if your in it for the main even only tho imo unless you got some spare cash

then go to a bar or movie theater to watch it, numbskulls...

when people buy PPVs they generally bring a bunch of friends over to watch it and chip in, so that its only like 10 bucks a person or less.

this is a great card, if thats what youre asking

It's for sure worth 12.50 (theater price)

I think it's worth the whole 50 too. The undercard is great. John vs Juarez was a good fight the first time and Katsidis vs Escebedo should be a shootout.
