    @chandtara what do you think of Danny garcia taking a fight with Paulie. For me this guy has fallen off since his win vs mattyse.

    Oh well, this means another fight at barclays that I might be able to go see

    He talks too much. If he concentrated on his boxing more he might get somewhere but all the trash talk beforehand doesn't help his cause when he loses.

    Come on the guy is class. Up there with probably the best counter punchers in the business. Will be interesting to see who he fights next

    The way Paulie got bullied in his last fight I can only see him getting destroyed by Garcia. Another ending similar to the way he finished off Morales. His punches will be too much for him.
    I like Danny as a fighter but his dad really gets on my nerves and makes me want him to lose lol.

    Think it will be an easy fight for Garcia personally. Will be too strong for Paulie

    I have to go home and watch the fight again, but from the arena it seemed like Danny was slow, missing a lot, and left himself open a lot. Any decent 147 fighter Woukd give him major issues

    He was just looking for the big shot tbh. Paulie as predicted was never going to put in too much of a challenge.

    Surprising no one mentioned the fight tonight. Easy easy win for mayweather. Landed over 200 punches and one judge gave him every round. It would be sad if this really is his last fight

    tickets didn't sell at all. Everyone knew the result way before it happened. Embarrassing for Mayweather.

    Prichard Colon underwent surgery to release pressure on his brain.

    Looked a lot better than his first tight at this weight. Would like to see him face the winner of Thurman Porter

    Guerrero started off strong but just run out of gas, the guy can take a punch though. Garcia hit him with quite a few of his signature punches and he still stayed on his feet

    Fury reveals offer to stage title fight on a yacht, with tickets $1m each

    MANCHESTER: Tyson Fury has claimed a sheikh in Dubai offered to host his world heavyweight title rematch with Wladimir Klitschko aboard a yacht in a bout that could have been worth $120m (£82m). Fury is contractually obliged to face Klitschko again after ending the Ukrainian’s near 10-year reign as world champion last November and says “there are five possible venues” for later this year. While Wembley and Croke Park in Dublin as well as locations in Germany, Abu Dhabi and Qatar have been discussed, the WBA and WBO champion claimed he had received an extraordinary proposal by an unnamed sheikh to hold the fight on his yacht amid a media blackout.


    According to the 27-year-old, the showdown would only be available to 120 audience members, each paying $1m for a ticket. “There are five possible venues. I’m hoping it’s not going to go back to Germany. I’d rather go to Abu Dhabi or Qatar than there,” he told the Daily Telegraph. “We even had negotiations to have it on a cruise ship. There was a sheikh in Dubai who owned a yacht which would fit only 120 people on. “He didn’t want to broadcast the fight anywhere and he said he could sell 120 tickets at $1m each, so that would have been $120m. He wanted to have an exclusive heavyweight championship of the world fight with no TV station, with just those 120 people watching.


    “He didn’t say how much I would get, but I probably would have had the biggest half of the $120m – so I was all for it. I don’t think it’s possible now, but it would have been an epic story.” However, Fury has cast doubt on the fight even going ahead and suggested he may walk away from the sport altogether. The Briton, who has threatened to retire in the past, told BBC Radio 5 live: “I’m struggling to get motivated. I could walk away. I could just sail into the sunset unbeaten with all the belts and live a normal life. All that I would be boxing for is money and I always thought to myself I never want to let sport become about money.”

    Dude... This man got an extra 10 seconds from the ref and I'm sure he could have continued. What a waste of talent.
