    Ghandi, when you say a televised fight do you mean it's on regular TV in xenophobic South Korea, that's pretty nice.
    Regular TV. The fight is that big that there is interest here too. The media is xenophobic but ordinary Koreans are on the whole quite different from the media. I dont sense any real xenophobia on the streets. This is a peaceful place. No police officer wants my blood because I am white. Its nice. Opinion is divided here. Mayweather has his fans and so does Pac. I have backed Manny and I am just hoping it doesnt go all Hatton.

    I just ordered it now. (SKY box Office HD) I am going to watch it with my Stepson if he stays up, and is not working (he usually works nights) and of course keeping up with the RBR on here at Saddos.

    It should be the mother of all fight night RBR's even if the fight itself ends up being a bit of a damp squib.

    I think i'll just download/stream it Sunday morning.

    1. I don't think it will be a great fight (it's a Floyd fight).

    2. The undercard is pony.

    I'll be stocking up on the red bull and ordering a huge pizza and I can't wait for it


    Exactly. Which is why I'll be watching it at home with my brother and a couple of buddies. Had an invite to watch it at my brother-in-law's, but he's gonna have his kids and their friends and their wives and their kids, etc, etc, etc. A whole mob scene complete with bratty kids and bored wives.

    Nah... I'd rather watch it at home with fellow boxing fans.

    Was thinking of streaming it, but I've been reading CBS is bring out snipers for streamed site. I thing it's just talk though, otherwise the movie industry would have already stopped it. Planning to go to the big casino near by and watch it in their big dinning room. The usually show big PPV fights for free and their web site says come early for seating. Would have probably been forced to watch it at home but can't cause my daughter threw the remote at the 70" flat screen. It has a big crack in the back screen.

    At home with my son, a few wheat beers some chicken and pizza up all night, my son's on about
    getting a bottle of Grey-goose vodka lovely stuff.
    This is a bit special biggest money fight in history up to now,! I don't think it will turn out to be
    spectacular, but well worth a watch.

    Im getting really excited now. Been watching classic Manny fights all week and though he has had soft performances there have also been some killers. I hope Manny has his output and a seek to kill mentality. None of this 'Im getting old and soft nonsense'. I shall preface the card with a 2 mile walk up the hills followed by pulled pork and a jacket potato. This is the highlife! And the fight is free!

    Aren't you suppose to do the two miles after the pulled pork?

    Mad isn't it. I am not sure if Miles has actually moved across the world or back in time to the 1960's and 70's when even here we had things like that and public services rather than monopolised piles of doo doo run for the benefit of rich bar stewards and shareholders.

    Hopefully the fight will be a vintage throwback too, with the rollercoaster type of action we sometimes had then.

    Your logic does seem better, but being a contrary sort my mind is made up. Exercise first thing while the people are recovering from the weekend then my fill of the lovely calorie rich and heart destroying meat.

    Keep the faith. Public services and free boxing can return as soon as Murdoch and mainstream party politics is fully rejected. Greens and TUSC are possible counters. It starts with a Manny win, then everyone can see the status quo is impermanent.

    Pay per view here is around $60 US so I'm definitely not buying it. It's not that I can't afford it, you can do lotsa things here with $60. It's like $60 x 10 in value here. So it's worth to wait a couple hours instead to watch the free telecast here, plus 5-10 mins of commercials in-between rounds. It's been like that for decades here except there were less commercials before. No complaining though cuz I got to watch all the major boxing events ever since, the Ali fights, the 'no mas', Hearns, Hagler and Leonard to the de la Hoya fights. Here in the Phils, it's common for some neighborhood shops to set up big screen tv's to show Manny's fights to the public for free and there will be one at our neighborhood just several blocks away from my place and so if I feel like joining the lynch mobs I might take a little hike.
    Once in awhile, get outside in fresh air, take a deep breath & with a deep sigh, let out all the things that's bottled up inside you & be free, & you'll get a glimpse of nirvana.
