    Apparently, it's not yet totally off the table. DLH is going to have to stop being greedy and give Pac more of the pie if he really wants his last fight to be a huge event.

    So what do you all think? Do you believe this fight will soon get signed?

    DLH vs. Margarito. Pacquiao is a great fighter. But, Oscar should man up and fight Margarito. Anything less, well maybe Williams and that won't happen. There is talk of Oscar vs. Shane Mosley lll. Can anyone imagine two executives that work for the same company beating each other up again. I can't because they never really beat each other up in the first two fights.

    pacquiao would be an idiot not to take this fight. It's all up to him.

    He will get 3-4 times what he makes with other oponents and his fame and popularity will also rise like anybody who fights Oscar at one time.

    as far as the fight itself some of you think Paquiao is gonna die in the ring.

    I think Oscar will slap him around and Roach will stop the fight before it gest ugly. easy payday for both.

    I voted I Don't Care because it's a fucked up circus act in my view, but a WEALTHY fucked up circus act. It's all for the money. Pacquiao can fight other guys from 130lbs to 140lbs. Oscar is trying to fight all the guys considered the best P4P fighters in the world, at the time that he fights them. Hopkins (2004), Mayweather (2007), and now Pacquiao. Pacquiao is the LW champion of the world... it's pathetic that Oscar even considers him as a viable opponent, and then throws a 70/30 offer his way nonetheless. Pacquiao has plenty of options. So does Oscar. Let these two stars go their separate ways. This matchup isn't that wonderful, anyway!

    Dan Rafael from espn.com is reporting that it's pretty much a go for Dec. 6th.

    Dan Rafael needs to put down the donuts and start watching fights before he comments on them. :mex:

    :lol: Sometimes I can't stand fatman but he's got the "skinny" on the haps most of the time. He's pretty much the epitome of every fanboy geek that sits behind his computer and talks shit about fighters in a sport he's never even participated in.

    If I could take Dan Rafael's job, I would do it in a sec. He's making dollars for eating those donuts in front of his computer screen and talking about boxing and fighters in boxing. I would love that. LOL

    Oh no doubt about it. But that's his handycap, certainly not mine! A job doesn't make or break bedroom accomplishments. :lol: :rock:

    Joke of a fight. Let's see Pac win some meaningful fights at lightweight before he jumps 3 weight-classes to fight an old man.

    I think Pac or his team are nervous about taking the long road and dealing with the styles of guys like Guzman and Casamayor. They're cashing out but it should be a helluva lot of cash.

    Today on the radio they said DLH has plans to fight Arthur Abraham. :lol::slap:

    Hey, I don't mind. DLH will soften Pac up for the third fight with Marquez. That way Marquez will beat Pacquiao even more convincingly and earn the official decision. :clappy::lol:

    Pacquiao won't fight Marquez again. It looks like they're trying to cash in and make big fights for him from here on out. I heard them say that they want Hatton at 140 after this fight. PBF is training in Las Vegas already so who knows what plans he's gonna fuck up. Pacquaio won't fight again at 135 for another couple years if ever. If he fights DLH, Hatton, and PBF as his next 3 fights he can get hurt by the big boys and be done. Either way he's looking at making about $25 mil in the next couple years that would be a nice way to go out.
