McNeely is going to be on Jay Leno, probably talking about how he will
knockout Tyson.  I hate fighters that talk a lot and try to showboat
before the fight.  I always remember Anthony Hembrick's losses.  He
always had a spurr of words before the fight.  McNeely at least is
trying to sell the fight.  I don't think he has a very good chance of
winning.  His last fights were all first round knockouts, but can
anybody remember his opposition?  I'm still going to pay $39.95 to
watch the fight.  I want to see how Tyson looks after the layoff.  Even
though Bowe and Holyfield are excellent fighters, I still think that
Tyson might be the best fighter in the world.  I think there is a good
possibility he can retain his old form and become devastating again.

Oh yes, fighters that talk too much before fights... When
I see them being asked "what's your strategy for the fight?"
and then going "well, as you well know I have the best
jab in the business, so I#ll move and box and keep him at
the end of the jab, soften him up, punish the body and
then move in in the fifth. I am the real champ, you know.
I am going to hurt the guy, and I'm gonna hurt him bad. I
can't see the fight going any other way."
I think "geez, a fighter should shut the f*ck up before the
fight". Because then the fight comes and it's some different
shit altogether. It's BANG! and out, and the guy is made out
to look like an utter moron, and I wonder if he'll ever dare
to show up in public ever, it's such a ***...
Thus the need for excuses afterwards...

I kinda see your point... But your assuming that a fighters job is to win.
Seems to me with a lot of these guys their job is to sell tickets.  
Talking shit does sell tickets, look at Paz... why the hell did anybody
pay to watch him fight Duran?  I can only guess that the reason anybody
payed was in the hope and prayer that Duran would get luck and break the
kids jaw....
