  • Mayweather still at it with exhibitions. Since this event is anemic and predictable, he would get more viewers off YouTube for free than charging $29.99 on PPV for the suckers who want to burn a hole in their wallets.

    • So true scoob ! That aside as I’m from Halifax originally, it’d be great to go see a card at the forum ! It’s a real old building that has been used for smaller scale events for years. You can’t help but get into the atmosphere when your there and we all have a hometown arena that feels like that I hope.

    • If he’s making a good living fighting nobodies post-retirement why wouldn’t he do it? The Youtube suggestion could work though.

  • So looking forward to Lopez-Taylor. With both guys desperately needing a good performance (and victory) this has the potential to be a cracker.

  • Was going to say the same thing. Lopez-Taylor is the only fight I’m interested in this weekend.

  • Far and away THE fight of the week is Taylor – Lopez as everyone has said, but I am also interested in Munguia – Derevyanchenko. I think I’m a bit higher on Munguia than most people and it seems as if many are giving Derev a legit shot at beating him.

    • I believe in Munguia too, and what I can see Oscar is doing with him, is the same case scenario of what he did with Canelo and GGG, but now is the opposite with Canelo getting older and ripe to be taken, and that could be in 2024 with Canelo 33 and Munguia right on his primes at 27

      • Surely that has to be Golden Boy’s ultimate play to see if Munguia can fight and beat a past-it Canelo and inherit that distinction as the current most popular Mexican fighter. I think Munguia has work to do before that though to make himself an attractive opponent and he needs to look impressive. It would be nice if he could stop an old Derev because no one has done that and after that…. maybe Berlanga? GGG if he isn’t done. I’d mention Charlo which would definitely help, but ain’t no way in hell that fight is happening.

  • Be careful Floyd, John Gotti might give you an offer you can’t refuse

    • The Gotti grandson will suffer the same fate in this exhibition as his grandfather did going up against the AB at Marion Federal Prison.

  • I woul like to be wrong, but I see Teofimo in collision course with a beating at the hands of Josh Taylor. Taylor array of skills and dirty tactics makes him a hard dude to beat, he is a sort of a small white Bernard Hopkins with a strong spirit that could be too much for a doubtful Teofimo, let see if I am wrong and maybe he clobbers Taylor with a punch ” a la Commey)

    • Taylor’s problem is that he fights so infrequently. The last time anyone saw him he had one of his worst performances and then he sat out 15 months. It’s hard to imagine that he’ll be at his best under those circumstances….. but he might not need to be for Teo who doesn’t seem to have adjusted to the new weight class very well. I think it ends up being a relatively competitive fight, but I definitely favor Taylor in an 8-4ish decision.

  • I honestly believe that Teo gets stopped in 10 rounds!! Josh is battle tested and will prove to be way more than what Teo can handle!!

  • I think Taylor with that southpaw stance and a little more power than Teo is accustomed too wins this. Sergiy hasn’t a chance against Munguia…he is brought in for the payday and that scar tissue opens up in this one.

  • Not sure why so many people here are excited about Josh Taylor-Teo Lopez being both guys handily lost their last fights and received gift decisions from either corrupt or incompetent judging. This, in microcosm, is what’s wrong with the sport. People get irate with the bad decisions then have short memories when it comes time for the next big fight. No one is held accountable and the dirty system keeps perpetuating itself.

  • PPV is over-saturated. There used to be a time when PPV meant something. All of these fights should be on ESPN. Taylor vs Lopez could be on Showbox.

  • 140 going to be the action division for the coming years. Taylor vs Teofimo. Kingry vs Romero. Haney
    vs Prograis. Tank and Shakur sure to move up. At
    135 Keyshawn will be top dog for a few seasons.
    Then he’s likely to move up to 140 for some big fights. You can see the progression with Ryan Garcia eventually moving up to 147 since he’s more
    of a natural welterweight. Bud and Spence will be
    moving up to 154 and 160. MOVIN’ ON UP! THEY ALL WANT A PIECE OF THE PIE-EYE!!! haha

  • Best fight of the weekend is Taylor vs Lopez. Most boring fight is Edwards vs Campos, 4 KO’s each, good luck trying to stay awake for that snoozefest

  • Lopez’s problem is having his father as a trainer. He was fine when Lopez was fighting co- mains on ESPN, but now he is just an overhyped cheerleader in his corner.
