Radam, be nice. You're talking about 2014's “Trainer of the Year,” the award Mr. Lane will undoubtedly win after Algieri's massive upset next week.

Tim looks like he misses the Pad Thai and sweltering heat. I wonder if he's ever trained in Thailand before.. Still this is boxing not kickboxing, and the clips I've seen of him training Pacquiao, they're going to be well in over their heads when they come across one of the best trainers, and one of the best fighters of the modern era. Best of luck to your boys Randy.

I thought the guy was believing his own words until he said “might even take Pacquiao out” ! He can't believe what he's saying !

Although I think Algieri will figure out a way to take it, going for a KO is the least likely or effective strategy for him to win. I think they know that and C-Al will be dancing all night.

I respect your opinion Doc, where do you see Algieri finding the room to take the victory? Pacquiao doesn't give you a moment's rest to think. Only guys who have fought him a minimum of 30 rounds earn that respect and even then he's still all over you, stinging like a swarm of bees and dashing out leaving you dazed in his wake.

Dancing for two minute during the fight and put too sleep that morning. After he is awaken in defeat that afternoon, he will indeed have all night to dance at Da Manny victory party and concert. Hehe! Hills!

Radam G says:

Tim Bradley tore his legs and feet up twice trying to get away from Da Manny's missiles and nukes. And TB is three times faster than prancing and flustering C-Al. The Empire State boy is in trouble now in five days and a wake up. Holla!

You have to calm down, Radam. Otherwise, Pacquiao's upcoming loss is going to have you completely down in the dumps.

However, I did promise you a personally autographed photo of Algieri after his upset win on Saturday, and I will deliver when I am with Algieri at the parade in his honor.

Fight Week is about to begin.

The strategy is pretty clear to me. Pac, as great as he is, does have trouble with fighters with a couple of things:

-Alot of movement
-Guys who throw when they are off balance and with weird, even awkward angles.

Pac demolishes guys who trade with him. Bradley got his butt handed to him in both fights because although he had the skill to be competitive, his tenacity was his eventual undoing. Add Shane, DLH, Hatton, Margarito, Rios, and a host of others to that list. Marquez trades but uses awkward enough angles to keep Manny off balance. Algieri will have both of the above because that is his fighting style. Add to that a definite height and reach advantage and I think Pac is presented with some real problems.

Your words are correct, Pac is all over people, but alot of that is because the people are there. If Algieri is smart, which I think he is, he won't be.

I think it will be a boring fight, I think Algieri will be a dud in terms of entertainment value but he will literally run himself into a 7-5 victory.

TGD, I think that you are dead wrong. Sorry! But C-Al has not the skills or know how to keep Da Manny off him, or to get away from Da Manny.

This bout is going to be a PacMan blowout. I'm finding it terrible to know, because I can't see how and why other don't see the obvious or latent promotional tricks.

There is going to be a turkey-eating month massacre in Macau. C-Al is a set-up pug. It is so easy to sell AmerKanos myths of one of them becoming a Big-Screen like Rocky beating the foreigner or the bad dude.

C-Al is to Da Manny what no-chancer Peter McNeeley was to “Iron” Mike back in the day. And just many people thought that McNeeley was going to pull an upset.

Da Manny is going to beat the snot outta C-Al the same way in a round of two. I'm winning a ton of moolah betting that C-Al will fold in a round or two.

C-Al will show neither strength nor stamina. This psyched-up for C-Al crowd is in for a big let down.

I recommend my red-pepper, black-cherry sauce drink for you dudes. It will get you out of the blues and afterfight-disappointment moods. Hehe! Holla!

I can see the plan too, but as the saying goes the best laid plans of mice and men gang aft agley. With Pacuiao, there's going to be no room to hide. I took great pleasure last night in watching two Pac fights, the first against Ledwaba, a class showing, and the second against Clottey. Clottey slips on the same ear muffs Chris loves to use, but Pac still gives his brainbox a mean working over.

If you look at Pac's recent fight history, he hasn't fallen off as so many people are speculating, he's still as he used to be and it will show against Algieri. Algieri for all that he's done in his parent's basement, he simply isn't ready to be a world championship level elite fighter. At this level the guys are made of different stuff to him. He doesn't carry the punch, he doesn't have the chin, sure he may have a heart… But his heart flutters and makes him run on his bike all night long. It might win him one fight thanks to the judges and ref being from your hometown, but it won't win you any belts or fights away from your own backyard.

Let's remember Algieri was a club fighter a few years ago, and he only took up boxing very recently. Now he's going to face arguably the best pugilist of this era. The difference in levels is too much, and the only person who will be able to feel the difference in full force is Chris himself. It's going to come as a terrible shock.
