I wouldn't think about buying a heavyweight fight, but Mayweather and Gatti are two of the very best boxers in the world, regardless of weight class.

Regardless, I hope Mayweather wins. I think I'll wait until it's broadcast on Fox sports sometime down the road if it turns out to be a good fight.

I wish I were, but I'm not going to pay ppv, when I think it will be on HBO later this week.

I don't like Mayweather's attitude at all, and I hope Gatti punches his guts out his arse.

I had to laugh at the pre-fight shenanigans when Mayweather said that Gatti had so much plastic surgery he looked Chinese.

Having to read the round by round description of a fight takes me all the way back to the '30's when people gathered in front of an appliance store who had their radio wired to loudspeakers outside the store. During the '50's, a fight like this would have been on free TV with Gillette Blue Blades paying the bill. Damn the people that pay for ppv. I never thought ppv would fly but it did.

I tried to see the highlights on ESPN news but they only talked about it. When are fights rebroadcast on HBO?

It's generally the Saturday after the fight, so it should come on next weekend.
