The talk is over, the fight is upon us. If Juan Manuel Marquez pulls this one off, it'll be a watershed moment for Mexican boxing and one of the great upsets of our time. If Mayweather wins with the ease that many expect he will, he's going to be hit with tough questions immediately. Guaranteed.
The PPV broadcast starts at 9pm ET / 6pm PT. The undercard tonight is damn solid, so make sure you're watching the whole show, and hey, stop by and talk fights with us, too.
If you aren't watching tonight and are looking for live coverage, you've found the best you're going to find anywhere. Live coverage will occur in the comments section of this post, and everything updates live, with no need to refresh. You'll need an account for the live update feature, and there are plenty of good reasons to sign up for one.
Let's do this!
NOTE: Since I know many people are going to watch both this show and UFC, or watch UFC and follow this show online, we ask that you please not post any results for UFC 103. If you're new to SBN, UFC 103 will be covered at BloodyElbow.com, and you can discuss that card on their site. There are people who plan to watch the UFC show late tonight or tomorrow, so no spoilers.
