    I've been out of boxing PPV's for almost two years because of my previous job. Now I'm settled down again and intend to get back in to them. Is this bout worth the dough?

    elway, the undercard is weak as usual these days. The main event should be competitive for the first half of the bout. After that, Pacman will be warmed up and will outclass the slower Clottey en route to a UD victory. Of course, I could be totally wrong! I'm a huge boxing fan but I refuse to pay $50 for a PPV card when I'm already subscribing to HBO. I don't know if the replay will be aired on HBO next week (or at some point). However, I have a feeling that I'll catch the action one way or the other!

    Yeah, im with ya on waiting, but a lot of times I would buy and have the guys in my family over for food and beer. Think I may do it if anyone is interested in coming over.

    Clottey is walking to the ring. FWIW, I'm taking Clottey via KO!!

    He's very loose and dancing in the ring. We'll see what happens when Pacman starts stinging him!

    Gomez, Duddy and Soto won on the undercard. I wish JL Castillo retires. He's given everything he has (and more) to this sport.

    Pac is winning every round. We're in the 9th. Clottey isn't letting his hands go and Manny is. Easy fight to score.

    It really makes you appreciate Juan Manuel Marquez in his fights w/ Pacquiao.

    The undercards kinda stunk, but I enjoyed watching Pacman. He just hounded Clottey and they guy could not make anything work. Also, the two judges that did not give a perfect score need their eyes examined.

    Looking forward to Mosley-Mayweather, and the winner fighting Pacman. The Mosley PPV is on my list as well as the Jones Hopkins PPV.

    Yea, Pac is relentless! It's too bad Clottey stayed in that defensive shell. I guess he didn't want to get KO'd. Have you see Jones-Hopkins 1? They were both young at the time. I think it took place in '93.

    I know, been some great fights. I watched one in Biloxi in 99, sitting real close to Micheal Jordan, George Foreman and Mike Ditka.
