    I'm looking for the video before the fighters came out. Don't see it on youtube, don't think it will ever be on youtube.

    I'm looking for the Hans Zimmer video.

    The assertion (and the reason you know the whole statement is BS) that Mayweather 'should' beat Pacquaio is far from a given, outside of Mayweather's fans.

    I think that the reason most of the boxing world wants to see this fight...is because they feel they will see a hell of a fight.

    For someone in Mayweather's position (particularly after coming out of retirement) to try and take this stance is just posturing.

    I know but from Mayweather's perspective, which is what we're talking about here, people will make an issue out of the weight if he does beat Pacquiao. It already happened with Marquez, who's actually bigger than Pacquiao, even if just by a fraction.

    Marquez had to move a couple weight classes to catch up with Mayweather... Floyd didn't want to fight a true welterweight in his own division when he came out of retirement... True Welterweight he could have fought were, Cotto,Margarito,Mosley or if he wanted to, move up to light middleweight.. If he went that route and beat any of the middleweight we would all ride his nutsack the same way we are with Pacman...
