    Tonight's the night!

    "Pretty Boy" Floyd Mayweather fights for the first time in almost two years, taking on a big risk by fighting the world class (and extremely dangerous) Juan Manuel Marquez in his return bout.

    Who's going to win and how?

    The ref is a centrist, I predict a draw.

    I hear Vegas has Floyd a 4-1 favorite.

    If I were crazy enough to bet on sports I'd say putting some money on Marquez at those odds would be a pretty good bet.

    Put a couple bucks on it. Can't hurt.

    Just what you'd be willing to potentially lose.

    I'll put $50 on a football game every now and then just to make the game even more fun to watch.

    Online is an option I suppose.

    A roomate of mine back when I was still a pipliner at Keesler had a guy too. He'd call this crazy international number and have to give 2 different passwords then place his bets. THAT dude had some serious gambling issues.

    That's crazy. My guy was just a buddy of mine that ran a small book among friends.

    Incidentally, he's not in jail for the bookmaking though. More like meth making :lol:

    So who collected if your friend lost?

    I'd rather see Mayweather lose, but he'll probably win. Like most boxers these days, he only chooses opponents that he knows he can beat. Though it's more about the paycheck than fighting now too.
