Floyd Mayweather is back. Whether or not it is the Floyd Mayweather we know, the boxer nonpareil, or some new version remains to be seen. But we will see him. And he will be fighting a live opponent. The newly crowned Welterweight Victor Ortiz will be defending a belt at his new weight for the first time. A bit green, the eager, once-written-off kid from Oxnard, will have a second chance to show us whether his 'no mas' moment was an anomaly or a pattern. And man does he have the right opponent in the saaviest veteran possible, FMJ. It should be a good one while it lasts.
Then we have the fight some think should have happened some time ago, Manny Pacquaio vs. Juan Manuel Marquez, two extraordinary fighters and performers meeting for the third time. Yes, they are older and their optimal weight quite different but no one can deny or doubt that bothe men will bring it in November. Anticipate a battle. Both men want to put an 'controversy' over their past two fights to rest.
And then there is Carl Froch, the unoorthodox battler from Nottingham, fighting for the SuperSix title against the Son of God (well, not really) Andre Ward, the former Olympic Gold medal winner and undefeated pro from the Bay Area USA. No one expects a ballet when these two meet and it could get downright uglybut no one doubts either man's desire to win.
My question: Which will be the best of the three....and which has the greatest potential to dissappoint?
