    Tonight Manny Pacquiao takes on Joshua Clottey in what will be one of the biggest boxing fights of the year. The fight is being held at the Cowboy's Stadium.

    Part 0.5: Be unwilling to agree to testing. Have that be the reason we miss out on pretty much the one fight folks REALLY want to see.

    How can I put this politely? If there was any question of Pacquiao losing this fight, this fight would not be happening. It is a come on to his REAL opponent to show much money he's turning down with this drug testing dodge.

    Watch out for cops on 75 between Plano and downtown.

    What? Oh ... sorry. Nevermind.

    Fight sucked. Clottey covered up the whole time.

    "one of the biggest boxing fights of the year"

    Nor exactly, Mr1734. More like a very bad consolation to the fight that should have happened.

    It may not be the Mayweather fight. However, it still had over 50,000 people there live to see it. I don't think another fight in North America this year will have that attendance. Also, it will do one of the biggest PPV buy rates this year. It might not beat UFC 100 or Mayweater/JMM, and it will probably be surpassed by the Mayweather/Mosley buy rate. It will still be one of the biggest PPVs of the year though.

    So, by that criteria it is one of the biggest boxing fights of the year.

    Well that certainly says a lot about the state of the fight game, huh? Let me know when Pacquiao is willing to be tested and fight Mayweather and maybe then I'll give a crap about what he's doing. He can knock over a hundred tomato cans between now and then and it won't mean a damn thing.

    Seven posts about one of the biggest fights of the year.

    So, guess not.

    When the venue is a bigger draw than the actual bout it is not one of the biggest fights of the year.
