Lololol I’ve already explained why I don’t like Ward and you can’t refute a single word of it because you know they’re all true. They’re the only reason why I dislike him. And I’ve done plenty with my life you imbecile. I’ve boxed at a very high level both as an amateur and a pro. And I’ve just given you the opportunity to see if I can’t back up my boasts, you’re the one who’s too yellow to come and find out. lololol. I’m very serious about that too. The offer will remain open for as long as you like, ie. when you run out of your antipsychotics and find your balls. lolololPosted May 10, 2013 5:51 pm
Just more threats from a punk who never beat a top contender.. What have you ever done with your miserable career??? And because you accomplished nothing, and beat nobody or note, you hate on Ward because he’s beaten every top fighter in his division in the 9 years since he won a Gold Medal in the Olympic Games and has made millions. You’re infected with jealousy.
You’re a hater and that’s all you’ll ever amount to.. A pathetic joke who talks like Dereck Chisora but delivers .0001 of the results Chisora does. You’re a waste of air.Posted May 10, 2013 5:39 pm
More of the same hatred, stench, and madness. You’re lost. You’re a mirror image of a hater from the other extreme—Mahmoud Ahmadinejad—who’s an extremely accomplished hater you’ll never match because you have .0001 of his intellect. Of course if you had brains you’d be as dangerous as he is. You’re a harmless ranter, but you’re headed in the same direction he is. You guessed it.Posted May 10, 2013 10:45 am

Mr. Brown is spot on accurate! I as a boxing fan, like many others, I watched the logical match-ups for floyd come and go, and BIG LOL @ his “retirement” a few years back! He is an INCREDIBLE fighter, with ATG skills, but I, and many others, see your STRATEGIC ducking and dodging, and waitng it out. You cant fool all the people all the time champ. sryPosted May 7, 2013 9:52 am
Mayweather cherry picks his opponents. He never wants to fight guys in their prime. He should have fought Pac 2/3 yrs ago when he was at his peak & blasting through opponents, but M’weather then started drug rumours as an excuse. When he was supposed to fight an unbeaten Cotto & machine Margarito, he then “retired”. He waited for them to then face each other & beat the sh! t out of one another [ Neither fighter was really thew same after that war ] & then came out of retitement. He then went on to struggle to beat a faded Cotto. People should see him for what he is, a faker. Oscar De La Hoya has a better legacy, even for all the publicity, he was warrior enough to fight a PRIME Trinidad, Moseley, Quartey, etc,.. The same with Pac. Mayweather more interested in protecting his “0Posted May 7, 2013 3:24 am
maracho…. Castillo accomplished more than MargaCheato… Cheato has one dubious win over Miguel Cotto, where his wraps were no doubt plastered, because Miguel dominated Cheato in the rematch and stopped him when they kept an eye out for any cheating… Other than that Cheato has done nothing and has ZERO KO’s since his plaster was taken away from him… The night he was caught trying to cheat he was smashed right into the canvas by Sugar Shane Mosely after being dominated every round leading up to the KO.. The next fight Mosley fought after destorying MargaCheato??? — he was badly routed by Floyd Mayweather.
Obviously Castillo was 10 X better.Posted May 7, 2013 2:44 am
Guerrero is no more a featherweight then Floyd is a super-featherweight… Most of Floyd’s career fights were at 130. Guerrero is taller and weighed more than Mayweather, and he won 2 previous World Welterweight Title Fights before he lost this one.Posted May 7, 2013 2:36 am
All this talk of Floyd Mayweather being one of the G.O.A.T is hilarious! Yes he is a very skilled fighter and a very good one in his era. He does not want to lose a fight, at his request he is matched up against fighters who pose no threat to him like he did with a featherweight in Guerrero. No offense but those of you who are gushing over Mayweather have no clue about the history of boxing. He will avoid any fighter who can beat him. Smart business move but a true coward as an elite fighter.Posted May 7, 2013 1:41 am
Golovkin @ 154Posted May 7, 2013 12:36 am
Tark, according to your own philosphy against Margarito, Castillo dont count for much because he had four Ko losses before he fought Mayweather. of course your philosophy is flawed because Castillo whent on to do great things. What we are on about is imagine the excitement and money that Money May would have made if he had fought Hoya, Mosley, Margarito, Cotto, Pac, etc.. while they were still hottest prospects?Posted May 6, 2013 11:57 pm
Floyd is still going at 36 and counting… And like 23 or 24 World Championship fights.Posted May 6, 2013 11:15 pm
I also think it’s interesting that Hagler quit at 32 when their were bigger fights than ever out there… He said he didn’t want to embarrass himself against the top young middleweights, and wanted to fight Leonard or nobody… He couldn’t get Leonard so he retired.Posted May 6, 2013 11:13 pm
People said Floyd would never fight Corrales… never fight Castillo… never fight De La Hoya… never fight Hatton… never fight Mosley… never fight Cotto… never fight Pacquiao… He fought everyone but Pac.
It’s not as if Pacquiao has retired. He’s a lot younger than Floyd and they’ll fight if Pac beats Marquez in their 5th fight.. Or even if Pac loses to Marquez again May-Pac would still be a blockbuster event.
Now, we know for sure that Sugar Ray Leonard and Tommy Hearns ducked Mike McCallum at 154 and 160… And we know they also didn’t fight many of the other very tough middleweights who were available.
Just because Leonard fought Duran, a lightweight who lost a Hell of a lot at 147 and above… Hearns, who got KO’d 3 X in his 20′s, including by Iran Barkley… Benitez, a sucker for a great jab or straight right hand because he tried to slip everything… or Hagler, not the most evasive or best boxer, and a guy who had to go the distance with Marcos Geraldo, who’d been KO’d at least 10 times before… That just shows me Ray knew he could beat those guys but wouldn’t risk Mike McCallum, Michael Nunn and Julian Jackson, or anybody else who was a top challenger for the title he took from Hagler.Posted May 6, 2013 11:06 pm

Mark.. I don’t know much about Ayala actually other than he was supposed to be a prodigious talent who threw a promising career down the toilet due to having an insatiable desire to rape women. For the little I’ve seen of him he does indeed look pretty beastly though.

WHO CARES who Floyd’s opponents will be ??Posted May 6, 2013 5:41 pm
Floyd might not fight Canelo, and that could be a smart move… Canelo weighs into the ring at 172 so he’s a light heavyweight. Floyd’s fights at 154 have been elective fights because he can’t get up to 154 no matter how hard he tries.. Broner would be a better risk after AB kills Paulie.
There’s lots of precedence of guys nixing bigger and stronger opponents.
Ray Leonard refused to fight any of the top middleweights after he whipped Hagler. Mike McCallum, Michael Nunn, or Julian Jackson.
Ray Robinson fought the slow and punchless Joey Maxim—but when Archie Moore took over the 175lb title from Maxim, SRR refused to fight him.
Michael Spinks said Mike Tyson was, “The wrong heavyweight for me to fight. His style was just wrong for me.”
Monzon and Hagler refused to budge from Middleweight.
Carlos Ortiz refused face Emile Griffith. “He’s too big”
Tyson refused to fight the Klitschkos. “They’re too big for me.”Posted May 6, 2013 5:04 pm

Tumbo – I think a Canelo vs Cotto fight would make more sense for Canelo at this stage.. would make him and Cotto a huge amount of money and if he beats Cotto considering the wear and tear on Cotto seems like the more likely possibility would then lead to another huge Money fight for Canelo vs Mayweather..Posted May 6, 2013 3:20 pm
Canelo v. Mayweather does NOT make boxing sense but it makes Money-sense, which is the one-and-only argument that can be used to challenge Floyd into making that matchup happen. after all, “makes dollars, makes sense” is the TMT slogan that he originated. otherwise, Canelo is about the same size as Guerrero with the same reach disadvantage, i.e., a buffet of opportunities for Mayweather to exploit at his leisure. accordingly, i anticipate a boring fight consisting of Mayweather grappling and pot-shotting Alvarez for a UD scorecard win. afterwards, he’ll discard his 154lb straps and return to 147lbs for even easier pickings. sure it’s a frustrating situation but i can’t blame Mayweather for being so dominant aBove his optimal fighting weight of 140lbs.Posted May 6, 2013 2:26 pm

Canelo will bring tons of fans. Massive money maker. Broner – Trout – Pacman – Golovkin
Golovkin or Canelo at the top of the list. Trout on the bottom. Pacman is a wedding never to be made. Broner to see who is the master of the style. Khan and Mayweather would be a lot of ego in the square. Money would eat Khan. Throw Khan off the list.Posted May 6, 2013 9:48 am
The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of a Martinez fight. Martinez can walk away with all the money he will ever need and probably not take the kind of beating (I.E. butchering) he would take at the hands of GGG.
And there’s no need for the fight to be made at catch weight: Martinez would prefer to come in under 160 anyway, and Floyd can weigh 152 or so, allowing the fight to still be for the title.Posted May 6, 2013 9:27 am
Floyd has fought 5 times in nearly 4 years. He isn’t going to be boxing for that long and won’t pick up his pace of fights to appease his contract or Showtime. He’ll fight 1 or MAYBE 2 more times. He looked like he could fight for about another 15 yrs with that ass whoopin’ he gave Guerrero the other night, though.Posted May 6, 2013 9:16 am

Nicolas – u just another stupid ass hater whose fixation is the demise of Mayweather by any means necessary. You mtfs make sick, why should Floyd fight a middleweight to cement his legacy when he came all the way from 130lbs and his heaviest weight is 151lbs and he came in at 146lbs for his last fight. The guy is a WW period and he is GOAT deal with it or go hang yourself.Posted May 6, 2013 7:11 am
Floyd I feel is the greatest ever to hold the 130 pound title, he is also with what he has accomplished one of the top ten fighters who fought at lightweight, but that is where it stops. I am never interested much in his fights because I always feel that they will be not competitive. He has stated that he is fighting for the paycheck and not for legacy. Sadly people are willing to let him have his way by buying his pay per view shows, which certainly are not up to what a pay per view should be. By doing this, he is showing the ignorance of the buying public, who just seem to want to see him fight anyone, not the best competition out there. It has somewhat been suggested that many came to the Mayweather show, not to see Mayweather, but to see the Mares-De Leon fight, as many of the people in attendance where Mexican, though what percentage I do not know. Certainly if Mayweather wants his legacy to be best remembered, he needs to fight Alvarez, and Martinez, certainly winnable fights for him.Posted May 6, 2013 5:55 am

Jay are you on crack?
Floyd Mayweather Jr. weighed in at 146 pounds on Friday afternoon, two pounds heavier than the weight stipulated in the contract for his comeback fight against lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez

ggg said he can make 154. who cares what pac and martinez have suffered. they would still be better than most the list james slater put forward. but martinez is a fight that should have happened years ago when the pac talk was happening. we have floyd failing to make two super fights, pac and floyd. im sure floyd will now fail to fight canelo. floyd is the garbage master in my eyes. he sure as hell aint the king of 154 of slater puts itPosted May 5, 2013 11:11 pm
You have to remember that Floyd fought most of his career fights at 130.. He fights at 147…but strategic fights at 154 wouldn’t be a bad idea.. He has to pick his spots because he’s giving up a lot of size and strength, but I’m hoping he does fight Canelo.. Martinez has lost some prestige due to his gift win the other weekend … GGG??? That would mean going to 160. That would be really stupid because his body can’t even handle 154… Cotto probably had 15 pounds on him… DLH probably had 25.Posted May 5, 2013 11:07 pm
i would probably rather watch floyd fight trout than garcia but good list. why not add martinez who floyd said he would fight and even ggg who says he can make 154. the triple beastPosted May 5, 2013 10:51 pm
My list for Floyd to fight — 2 Canelo, 3 Broner, 4 Pacquiao, 5 Matthysse, 6. Garcia.

EVERYONE has their own p4p views. the ring magazine actually had slow featherfisted guerrero at 8. a dude who has lost to diaz and salido at what 120 something? no way is this clown p4p better than vitaly klitschKO. not even close. the p4p is garbage and subjectivity. as i said we all are own views on that. the only thing left for guerrero to do to complete the “david ortiz” is to fall away into obscurity and be less than nothing following the floyd bout.Posted May 5, 2013 10:30 pm

It’s always post-fight that Floyd’s opponents weren’t a “legitimate threat.” His detractors HAVE to find EXCUSES as to why Floyd made the latest opponent look average, or worse. Certainly it couldn’t simply be because Floyd has been boxing all his life, is so well-schooled, and is supremely talented. Nope, that can’t be it, none of that could have anything to do with it. There just has to be another reason as to why Floyd figures out his opponent, takes anyway their strengths, then slowly breaks them down, all the while rarely getting hit clean in return. Let the detractors continue…Posted May 5, 2013 8:13 pm

Hmm wasnt the Ghost fighting at featherweight just a few years ago? Floyd fought at that weith 17 years ago. Didnt Golden Boy help Floyd cheat the catchweight contract way over the weight of Marquez/ Didnt Floyd say he wasnt worried about the lil midget Ricky hatton?Posted May 5, 2013 6:23 pm
You have to admit Floyd vs Canelo is an exciting fight… Why make all these fights where Floyd is an easy winner when you can make one vs Canelo that will take the whole world by storm??? The whole WORLD will get excited about this fight.
Floyd vs Canelo… Make it!!! Because I personally want to see it… And don’t come back with any excuses.Posted May 5, 2013 6:14 pm
Another BORING OF THE YEAR PPV BOOING EVENT by Showtime/GBP and Floyd Mayweather.Posted May 5, 2013 6:07 pm
Gonzo, has been puking Canelos red pubes all over this thread for weeks yet at no time does he remain consistent about Canelos tenure at 154 being built of fighters absent Trout who were coming up from 140 and 147?? I like Canelo but this has been said for awhile NOW we know he comes to the ring at 172.., of course we will hear a long winded reason why this makes sense for Canelo… Blah Blah BlahPosted May 5, 2013 5:58 pm
The Poor Gonzo’s BURN everything Boxings consensus P4P King laces up and gives his detractors an overdose of excellence…At 36 Floyd is NOT only undefeated against his opponents he’s undefeated against his detractors who need CGI and “Anime” to simulate Mayweather losing. Since he took in the name of a lowly Muppet perhaps Gonzo will treat us to a puppet show on YouTube where he puts a pair of socks with eyes on his hands and reenacts a skit about Mayweather losing to Hatton, Marquez, Guerrero and the other 40 guys he dominated… LMAO!! Hard days for the anti-Floyd factions :)Posted May 5, 2013 5:42 pm
Marquez scored his greatest career victory at WELTERWEIGHT!!!
Guerrero scored his greatest career victory at WELTERWEIGHT!!!
Mosley scored his greatest career victory at WELTERWEIGHT!!!
Hatton started his career at 140 and ended it at WELTERWEIGHT!!!
Cotto scored his best career victories at WELTERWEIGHT!!!
De La Hoya (34) lost to Floyd at 154 while Floyd was a WELTERWEIGHT!!!
MOST of Floyd’s career fights were fought at super featherweight (130).
The myth that Floyd picks on little guys is a canard.Posted May 5, 2013 5:42 pm
Floyd has been fighting 140 pounders only oh and a 130 pounds Marquez, he needs to fight the real 147/154 conteneders.Posted May 5, 2013 5:19 pm
“A fight between Floyd and Adrien Broner would certainly be a smash hit at the box office, but this fight seems certain to never take place.”
The fight is CERTAIN to take place… Broner is jumping 2 weight classes to capture a World Championship at 147… After AB destroys Paulie in a savage rage there will be a massive public clamor for Mayweather-Broner..
It’s an unreal fight—so please don’t suggest it won’t happen.Posted May 5, 2013 4:59 pm

I guess what Hecdog is saying, is he would like to have seen Mayweather give Guerrero some chances…Posted May 5, 2013 3:50 pm
SREDMOND, Rigondeaux’s fight vs Donaire was an artistic and skillful dismantling of a Donaire that carried explosive power. He took chances and was hit, even dropped, but he had to be aware at all times. He remained calm an tactfully beat Donaire in all areas. Rigondeaux was fluid in everything he did, he didn’t hold all night, and didn’t run away like Mayweather did. Rigondeuax is a much better all around fighter than Mayweather. Mayweather had a much easier task vs Guerrero than Rigondeaux had vs Donaire.Posted May 5, 2013 3:50 pm
@CrownPrince~You watched the fight but didn’t see it. You must realize Floyd threw more power shots than a brawler and landed at a much higher connect rate. Took Robert completely out of his game. Dismantled him with ease. You come on here a say he should take a chance! Well. I hate to break it to you but, everytime a man steps into the ring he’s taking a chance.Posted May 5, 2013 3:47 pm
Thanks Tomato CanPosted May 5, 2013 3:41 pm
Define “Better” should he have landed 75% of his shots or knocked out Gurrero who is a tough ass fighter who did not hit the deck against Berto or Floyd? Mayweather is not a KO puncher at 147 maybe the issue is his opponents need to do better?? No one complained about the Cotto bout because FMJ got hit more, because he was like an eel this fight people are sad?? Boxing fans are weird, Guerrero is a longtime pro who had a full 12 to make something happen against the older fighter…Posted May 5, 2013 3:40 pm
SRedmond, good call…Posted May 5, 2013 3:33 pm
There’s nothing that frustraits me more than fightes who don’t use their tools and strengths. Mayweather is one of the few fighters that always sets the tempo of the fight, and uses his tools and strengths.Posted May 5, 2013 3:32 pm
Hecdog, you discuss God in the context of boxing few take you seriously…You made a good call during Donaire vs Rigondeaux (I was dead wrong) but you are proving yourself a hypocrite !!! Rigondeaux fought a FAR more defensive and economical bout against Donaire yet you were effusive in your praise… Meanwhile Floyd was teeing off on Guerrero and standing mostly flat footed and you are changing your tune…Rigo wa ONLY countering Floyd was BLASTING Robert with the lead right hand and cruel hooks…Your philosophical inconsistencies have been noted…Posted May 5, 2013 3:31 pm
Crown Prince of Whales
You can be a boxing fan, acknowledge that Floyd is the best in the world and still be disappointed in his overly cautious performances and his tendency to make ‘safe’ choices in fighting guys moving up in weight or past their prime. It ain’t hate, it’s fair criticism. It’s because some of us think he’s capable of better, while you so-called fans cheer and applaud whatever he does, as though you’re part of his sycophantic entourage.Posted May 5, 2013 3:30 pm
I prefer FMJ at 147… he should be fighting 140-147 pounders, I think the top 147 pounders are better than Alvarez, and they are more Floyd’s size. I don’t need more circus bouts with Floyd fighting guys weighing in 160+ pounds. Floyd is campaigning in his 4th division. The top 140′s most of them started there I believe… but Floyd wouldn’t be calling out the top 140′s as good as they are, but it’s fun for Middleweights and Jr. MW’s to call out Floyd’s name? Come on man, that’s silly. Alvarez I’m not sold that he can clean out his division. He gassed and was hurt against Trout, so I can see Lara beating him, or even a Vanes, who can really punch… I’d rather see FMJ Vs. Garcia/Matthysse/Peterson/Khan (if he wins a world title)/Pacquiao (if he avenges himself.. but it’s gonna be a sloppy fight I imagine)/Bradley-JMM winner …is an option.Posted May 5, 2013 3:30 pm
If so called fans boo a performance like the one Mayweather put on last night, then they just are not fans. They don’t and won’t appreiciate the skill it takes to do what Mayweather does. Plain and simple! Those who boed last night love fighting not boxing.Posted May 5, 2013 3:26 pm
They are gonna say the same thing if he whips in Canelo “why didn’t he give up his advantage in speed of hand and foot and stand in front of Alvarez and trade” “Why is he slipping Canelos punches and countering” “why is he using that shoulder roll? It’s too effective” They were mute on the Cotto bout because he got hit more but complain about Gurrero because he hit Robert MORE and very cleanly… Haters are irrational they are literally want Floyd to find a way to lose so they can like him more..Posted May 5, 2013 3:24 pm
Pillowfist, I understand that he fights to his strengths that happen to be defense and counter punchng. Yes, he’s very good at that, but once in a great while take a chance and give fans what they want. Booing by your own home town speakes volumes about what fans think. I know Floyd could care less, but stand and fight for a bit, you get paid plenty of money from people that work hard for it. I’m sure glad I caught it a sports bar last night. Too bad SRLeonard, Duran, Hearn, Benitez weren’t in the same era. Floyd would have had 4 losses right there. Manny Pacquiao would have been five. Props to Floyd for giving good fight and a surprisingly humble post fight press conference. He may be starting to humble a bit.Posted May 5, 2013 3:22 pm
SREDMOND, I appreciate that Floyd can fight a very elusive a defensive fight, I get it he wants to have all his marbles intact, but I can guarantee you he will be bothered by my posts LOL!!Posted May 5, 2013 3:15 pm
@Hecdog~ Why would a fighter fight to an opponents strength? If another pro fighter can’t land hard shots on May, it’s not Mayweathers fault he’s faster and has great defense. Why not just say, in order to be considered an ATG he must move up the heavy weights and fight one of the Kilts with one hand tied behind his back and the other must stay at his waist unless throwing a punch. If May does that and wins, then he gets props. Only a fool fights to an opponents strenghts. A man attacks you with a knife but you have a gun but you throw your gun away and grab a knife, are you tough or stupid?Posted May 5, 2013 3:11 pm
Hecdog, you seem to respect ONLY hapless bangers who ignore the dangers of the ring and march happily towards premature dementia and early convalescence ie Terry Norris, And Meldrick Taylor, the great Thomas Hearns who auctioned off his baubles and who has the classic slurrrrrrrrrr…Floyd Mayweather smashed Guerrero with 60% of his power shots for whatever that’s worth, would you be more impressed if he did 75%…. EVERY fighter would live to fight like Floyd preserving their brains and bodies for the future but they lack his defense and precision …… When FMJ is 45 still stinking rich with his children Growing and his faculties intact he’s NOT gonna care about an ESB poster named Hecdog wishing he would take a face first approach to the sport… We have FAR too many sluggers but only a scant few virtuosos… 17 years and running!Posted May 5, 2013 2:58 pm
LMAO at Rueben Guerrero wishing Mayweather would have fought Robert with cement in his shoes. What a maroon….Posted May 5, 2013 2:54 pm
What fans need to remember is, Mayweather has no need to chace any fighters. Fighters need to earn thier fight with him. His legacy is set in stone, and he’s going to continue to call the shots throughout the rest of his career, unless he becomes one of the fighters to fight well beyond his prime. Other than that, as frustraiting as it may be for some, fighters need to get in line. I could be wrong, but I don’t think he’ll fight above 147 until he’s approaching his last fight. At that point maybe a worthy 154 pounder, like Canelo or Trout may be fortunate enough to get a shot at Mayweather.Posted May 5, 2013 2:52 pm
PLus, God loves all of us. I thought that Guerrero’s faith, emotional strength and Floyd’s possible skill decline that would be enough for the upset. I was wrong. God will be the same always, people always change.Posted May 5, 2013 2:44 pm
SREDMOND, yes I know it’s boxing and hit and not be hit is the safest and smartest way to fight, and he’s going to make a lot of money doing it that way, but the reality is that he does not have the confidence or courage to go outside his comfort zone. Notice how he had a taste of toe to toe action vs Cotto, and he was hit and bloodied up. He didn’t like it so re resorted to the hold and move (run away is what it is), and he was fighting a guy that wasn’t even a natural welterweight. The fans are knowledgeable, and they had every right to boo. Floyd has great defense, but moving away like a lion was after him really showed his fear. He will not go down as the legendary greats like Duran, Leonard, Hearns, Hagler, the Legendary Manny Pacquiao and other fighters that took a chance to fight in all areas. Look, Floyd is very good in all areas, but his legacy will always be tarnished first because he avoided fighting Manny, secondly, he’s a boxer that moves and wants no part of the mano y mano fighting. Great fighters beat others at their best. The greatest fighters of all time lost but they fought. The boxing, countering and moving is good, but it’s not what fight fans want or like. Floyd is a good fighter, but not great.Posted May 5, 2013 2:42 pm
“. . . flumoxed that Floyd would not bang with the larger, stronger Alvarez…”? those Haters don’t know nor are they interested in learning to appreciate true boxing talent and skills. Floyd’s fighting ability and execution are brilliant and mesmerizing. even to his opponents during a bout, e.g., how many times did Guerrero walk Floyd into a corner or the ropes and just freeze with defensive anxiety rather than the offensive surge that the situation calls for? Floyd is like a cobra hypnotizing victims into virtual paralysis before striking and shifting out of the range of counters. if you can’t appreciate that type of performance you really shouldn’t consider yourself a fight-fan or a true expert like the great EZ-E . . . Saludos, carnal.Posted May 5, 2013 2:37 pm
Everyone now wants floyd to fight this guy or that guy, hell have him fight one of the K. brothers, anyone that haters feel has a chance to beat him. I look at it with straight and total honesty, Floyd is the greatest boxer right now on the planet. Regardless of what haters think, the man has fought every person people claim to have been a threat & made it look easy. Floyd’s only downside is being too damn good, which to me is a testament to his loyalty to the sport. Learning how to stay at the top takes more skill then what haters give the man credit for. Ruben Guerrero got his son’s ass whooped because he thought that liquor he was drinking made him a etter trainer than Floyd Sr. Floyd beat Robert just like he would beat Sergio, Cindnelo, & anyone else haters throw out there. Enjoy the show while it last, because just like M. Jordan, Floyd Mayweather only comes once in a lifetime. …..Posted May 5, 2013 2:16 pm

I think PBF is a great boxer, definitely one of the all time greats, probably Top 30 at this point in his career. My only gripe is that PBF seems to only fight guys “at the right time” for his personal liking, not when they appear to be a real legit challenge. In other words, he seems to target fighters who have already shown a “chink” in their chain that he can exploit, now that someone already did it. He didn’t fight Kotszu or Hatton @ 140lbs when the entire boxing world thought they were the “The Men to Beat”, he didn’t fight Margarito or Cotto @ 147lbs when the entire boxing world thought they were both “The Men to Beat”, and he didn’t fight Pac-man when the entire boxing world thought he was the “The Ultimate Man to Beat”. Simply put, he just doesn’t take the risks of the greatest fighters who came before him, Ali, Robinson, Duran, Hearns, Leonard, Chavez, Whitaker, De La Hoya, Trinidad, etc. So many fighters in the past took on the biggest and most lethal threats to prove their greatness. I just wish PBF would because he truly is a great fighter. Now, Canelo stands in front of him as “The #1 Man to Beat”. Will he fight Canelo next? If history repeats itself, I say no. Sad but probably true.Posted May 5, 2013 2:11 pm
No one in the wwt division is really a threat right now, Marquez is too small, and not a factor over 135 lbs. Trout may be the only viable opponent right now, although a bigger fighterPosted May 5, 2013 1:52 pm
Mayweather should start thinking about retirement;even though at age 36 he still looks good performance wise,there’s nothing really out there for him in the WW division.I believe Canelo would be a stretch for him let alone Martinez.Pacquiao is doubtful,specially after that disaster with Marquez,the fans simply lost interest and wouldn’t generate the “mega bucks” that otherwise would have generated 4 or 5 years ago.Posted May 5, 2013 1:42 pm
BigFig – agree, Cotto needs to patch things up with his Uncle Father figure and get back to what made Cotto Great. The Cuban guy is a good trainer but not what brings out the best in Cottos Natural Style… Keep the Cuban for Stamina but Cotto needs his Uncle like Floyd needed his Dad.. Hopefully Cotto sees Mayweather and his dad doing so well and it sparks an interest in Cotto seeking out his Uncle who was unfairly blamed for Cottos loss at the Hands of that Mexican Cheat MargaCheato.. Cotto trained by his uncle and a weight Gain restriction for Cinnabum and Cotto beats Canelo..Posted May 5, 2013 1:07 pm
Cotto is not wash up yet. Bad advise from trainers. Bring back his old trainer/uncle and I will bet it will be a different fight game.Posted May 5, 2013 1:03 pm

Canelo is not a bad opponent for floyd. He sharpen his defensive or it just look that way against Trout, who is slower. He has power in spurts ( not recommended against floyd) He still immature talking wild powershot and missing. To beat a fighter like floyd you need a plan A, B, C, D, E and mix it up. Floyd will figure you out if you only have a plan A and B. After that he will C your *ss out of the fight.Posted May 5, 2013 12:54 pm
Ya gotta give Guerrero his props. Although I never expected him to win he stiil proved me a little bit wrong considering that I was kind’a expecting Floyd to possibly stop him from rounds 10-12, but goiing the distance was no surprise as well. Looking forward to seeing ‘The Ghost’ and his Puro Cojones dad as well. El Jefito Guerrero kind’a like reminds me of ME before I mellowed out. And of course, Floyd was everything I expected.

Te Tumbo, I agree Alvarez is gonna carry 15 or more pounds and 14 years into the ring but Showtime is gonna want a blockbuster event that may inch towards the 1.75 mill buy mark and Alvarez vs Maywether has that potential… At 36 no one should be demanding FMJ move up in weight but he will likely exploit Canelos heavy feet and relatively slow transitions between offense and defense to win a WIDE UD which will leave the haters flumoxed that Floyd would not bang with the larger, stronger Alvarez…Posted May 5, 2013 12:45 pm
Floyd was champ at 130, 135, 147 and he has held titles at 140 and 154. He is not just fighting in one weight class. He has fought in 5Posted May 5, 2013 12:45 pm
If the same Floyd that showed up last night with that movement, he will decision Canelo or stop him late because of Canelos stamina issuesPosted May 5, 2013 12:43 pm

“when will floyd fight a challenge… a threat?” there are no welter challenges or threats for Mayweather. whether or not Guerrero had a chance is moot due to the fact that he earned the shot to challenge Floyd. the Klitschkos are in the same position, which is why interest in their anti-climactic matchups has dramatically declined even among hardcore fight-fans. it is what it is. can’t fault Mayweather (or the Klitschkos) for being so Dominant.Posted May 5, 2013 12:42 pm
This is just my opinion, if Cotto was back with his uncle I think he can take floyd. Cotto lost with uncle only came by a cheater. His fight plan would of worked and was once feared by floyd when he was with his uncle. There is a reason for that. The best account from a boxer is whats is said right after a fight. Floyd did say that Cotto could of won!!! That statement along speaks volume. Cotto lost to margo who cheated and Cotto should of never left his uncle, because if something isn’t broke why fix it. Fact is Cotto never look the same after leaving his uncle. Now someone mention earlier that Cotto lost last two fights, most who analysis who give there accounts agree that he was competitive in both fights. Further more this would of never happen if he was under his uncle, which is a void that will complete cotto. It was also a void that was missing in floyd and look how he performed under his dad.Posted May 5, 2013 12:37 pm
when will floyd fight a challenge… a threat? the ghost never stood a chance. everyone knew that. he dont have the power to even get respect from floyd, never mind ko him or even hurt him. wheres the threat in that. we know he wont out box floyd? wheres the threat in that?if he the p4p best. like lenord, robinson, hearns, all them greats. why dont he fight anyone who could give him a go? its pathetic. its boring, its robbing fans.Posted May 5, 2013 12:36 pm
Burn, you’re illogical, Floyd has fought in 5 weight classes so the idea that he’s only fought in one is nonsense… SRR (if you know who that is) is widely considered the best fought in 2 divisions effectively… Floyd fulfilled his quota LONG ago if these younger fighters can’t beat the old man… Too bad!!!Posted May 5, 2013 12:21 pm
Te Tumbo, 2 excellent posts consign…. At 147 Floyd’s unbeatable based on an unmatched combo of skills, speed, heart and determination.. He might have looked too much like the Mayweather who fought Gatti for his own good last night…Some fans want him to literally abandon his skills and give the opposition a chance as if this is a schoolyard scrap between a 7th grader and a Highschool Sr….Posted May 5, 2013 12:19 pm
Why not let Floyd fight Martinez? How can you be pound for pound best if you fight at the same weight class all the time. Exception being cotto. Floyd has no problem fighting smaller guys. Not fair! I will say p4p at if he does fight a bigger guy without catch weight.Posted May 5, 2013 12:13 pm
Hecdog its called boxing “hit and don’t get hit”. Manny Pacquiao as much as I respect him forgot that and his BAD habits and defensive lapses caught up with him putting his life and overall standing in the sport in jeopardy… People were booing Manny and Mosley, they felt (I disagreed thought a toss up) he got a gift in the 3rd fight with Marquez and Pacquiao has NIT stopped a fighter since Cotto in what 2009??? KO’s are PAC Mans calling card and he could not even hurt Bradley( who I think he beat) as much as his obscure Russian sparring partner Provodnikov…You claimed that God was gonna deliver Gurrero the victory, well it appears that God had other plans because he allowed for Guerrero to be humiliated in front of his family… It’s sad you are trying to sell us your reenactment of Pacquiao defeating Mayweather when Manny is ONE loss away from relative obscurity and in desperate need of a quality win.. People don’t come to see Mayweather slugging it out, he’s a virtuoso… Meanwhile Manny has not provided his calling lower weight KOs in years meanwhile the Best KO he was involved in was unfortunately Marquez doing a more brutal job on him than he did on Hatton… At least Rickey had the dignity of laying on his back, Manny needed a shoe horn to pry his face from the canvas..::Posted May 5, 2013 12:12 pm
i don’t want to see Floyd retire but i’m at a loss to identify a welter opponent that would 1) have a realistic chance of challenging Floyd and 2) make it worth “Money’s” time. the first is necessary for paying fight-fans and the second is mandatory for “Money-May”. unfortunately, you have to go above 147lbs to satisfy the first criteria item, which is just unsavory profit-making spectacle to a boxing purist, but i also can’t question Floyd’s right to the second. does Canelo have a realistic chance of defeating Floyd in September? no more than Guerrero, IMO.Posted May 5, 2013 12:11 pm
Canelo isn’t ready for Mayweather. Mayweather is too elusive. But really Mayweather should stay at 147, that’s his comfortable weight. There are a lot of fighters that can move up or even down to face him at 147. And not one of them is a big enough name for him to need to leave 147 to face them….Posted May 5, 2013 12:03 pm
Give Floyd Mayweather his props for beating Robert Guerrero. He had speed and countered well. His timing was perfect. The rest of his fight game was quiet boring as you heard fans booing him for basically running away from Guerrero who seemed not to be much of a threat. Seriously, if you are dominating your opponent so much, why are you going to run away in the last round? Great fighters do not do that or they pay for it like De La Hoya did vs Trinidad. The last I heard, holding is illegal in boxing. Floyd held on every single round. He’s the bigger, stronger guy, so why would he need to hold on to Guerrero all night? The referee should have warned him and taken points away. This is a fight, and holding or tying up is illegal and against the rules. It’s the referees job to enforce them. Having watched the fight closely, and taken a close look at what makes Floyd the fighter that he is lead me to believe that Manny Pacquiao would have beaten Floyd Mayweather had they fought. Manny’s speed, power and unique style would have simply overwhelmed Floyd. Floyd is a very good boxer, but he’s not a true fighter in the sense of Duran, Leonard, Hearns, Pacquiao, Robinson and Benitez. These guys could all box, but they fought their opponents in all areas and they weren’t afraid to sit down and go toe to toe. You would never hear fans booing these guys, but Floyd getting booed in his own city speaks volumes of what fans think of him as a fighter. He may not care, but his legacy will always suffer because of that. If and when he fights Golovkin, Martinez, Pacquiao or even Broner, he will continue to fight the way he does, and I guess he can if no one can catch up to him. Floyd will be remembered as one of the best boxers around, but far from being great as the boxers I mentioned. As fpr Robert Guerrero, he will be back and become champion again. He received more respect, and I proudly congratulate him for remaining faithful to God and always giving him praise regardless if he wins or losses, Sometimes things don’t go our way, so we deal with it and move on. It may be painful, but it’s not the end of the world.Posted May 5, 2013 11:54 am
Cotto, Pacquaio and Ortiz are not viable at this point… Miguel lost 2 in a row via UD, Ortiz gets almost no respect at this point and had his jaw broken by a 140 pounder coming up in weight… Pacquaio needs to triage his cranium he was knocked out cold by Marquez he HAS to do something dramatic to regain respect…I think it’s bizarre to seek rematches with foes that were not competitive, Cotto gave a good account but losing 2 in a row has lowered his stock Marquez fried Pacquiao but he does not wanna lose 12 rounds in a row to Mayweather AGAIN muscle won’t make him a better fighter…Sept will be here in no time and it’s gonna be interesting…Posted May 5, 2013 11:51 am
Really don’t consider him a master except at trash talking Mr. Author. Just cause you like to suck Floyd Joy’s nuts doesn’t mean we are stupid for not joining in.

Wish list for floyd.
I would like to see him against cotto again. I think if Cotto was back with his uncle which he made it to the top, until being cheated by margo. I think he would do even better the next time. Amir Khan is garbage and a pacman back stabber. Garcia get hit to easy and may will eat him up. Canelo might have stamina issue and fight in spurts, and with may you gotta go at him for the full 12 rds. For pac he is good but every since PED testing he lost power and his firey energy he one had. Bradley seem game although he just sqeaking by with 2 bs decesions. Sergio didn’t look good last fight but why should floyd this big dude. Let may fight ortiz again first. Than cotto and canelo should fight and winner gets floyd next year. If cotto gets back with his uncle and they bring that old cotto back, it a wrap. Cotto has not look good after leaving uncle and that void is what beating Cotto.Posted May 5, 2013 10:50 am
Only fights for Floyd is the Klitchko bros,rigondeaux,Chavez Jr,and the finale should be against James buster Douglas which would push Floyd to his limitPosted May 5, 2013 10:40 am
I am very close to what Chap0610 list. My difference is that I think Guerrero was left-handed tune-up for Pacquiao. So, I actually think Pacquiao vs. Mayweather will now happen and it will bring in huge international money. I think the next 2-3 fights will be tune-ups for Canelo Alvarez and using a big strong — but safe — Mexican fighter (Alfredo Angulo) together with Miguel Cotto will be great tune-ups for Alvarez. I think Mayweather may or may not close his career against Adrien Bronner. I am less sure about that fight. My guess is that he only does 4 more fights not 5. I don’t think there will be anybody else out there to fight. I think Alvarez will be the last fight. I don’t think Bronner gets a shot unless he is truly amazing at 147 and has big knockouts. The reason is that I don’t Bronner will do anything for PPV. It is wasted event. High risk, low money. Why bother. So, my 5 fights are:
1. Manny Pacquiao
Mr. Author, aside from Canelo, your’s is a HORRIBLE list!! ahhhh… Danny Garcia?? The same Garcia that barely got by Zab?? And.. the same “Swift One” that probably won’t prevail against Lucas Mattysse IF he agees face him?? hmmm… Khan?? The same Khan/Con that barely got by a worn Julio Diaz?? Did he impress you that much?? Well, the ONLY reason I can see this one viable is because his market value especially if it takes place in the UK, which one set too well with the Vegas folks. ahhhh… Victor Ortiz?? Com’on man, gimmie a break!! The same fustrated “Vicious Billygoat” that began his butting tactics as early as the second round?? Just another form of quiiting. Have you forgotten how he followed his shameless Mayweather debacle losing to JUNIOR Welter Josesito Lopez?? and.. Maidana?? Are you serious?? The “El Chino” who can’t box a lick at that level and got completely OUTBOXED & OUTCLASSED by Devon Alexander?? How much credit would you say he deserves for barely getting by both worn an aged HOF Erik Morales and Demarcus Corley?? Let’s be honest, his win over the quitting “Vicious Vic” was FOUR years ago!! Oh well… ’nuff said. Peace to all.Posted May 5, 2013 10:34 am
I think Floyd Mayweather is the best technical fighter and best pure boxer in the history of the sport of boxing. However, Mayweather has always been a clever and crafty matchmaker that is selective about opponents. I don’t think that will change. Mayweather will choose the least risky opponents that generate the most amount of money. If Mayweather has 5 fights left, here is my list because I think they represent the most money and the least risk:
1. Manny Pacquiao
I realize that Pacquiao and Top Rank will have a hard time getting a fight done with Mayweather. But now, it makes sense. It is big money, low risk.Posted May 5, 2013 10:29 am
floyd has skill but he only fights people he knows he can beat he could of fought trinidad cintron cotto delahoya all in there prime but he didnt as of the 5 fights
Mares – Floyd will be great.Posted May 5, 2013 10:19 am
Any of the following 5 names at 147 or 154 would be a good fight for Floyd. 1) Martinez at 154, 2) Khan at 147, 3) Bradley at 147, 4) Canello at 154, 5) Marquez at 147.Posted May 5, 2013 10:19 am
Floyd always want to fight the best!!!!!!. …under some conditions of course.Posted May 5, 2013 10:18 am
Say what you want, but Mayweather is simply a different breed of fighter and must be respected for his skill. NO fighter takes a year off and looks that good, we’ve seen in the past with other fighters, yet Mayweather makes it look like just another day in the office. His next 5 fights will be interesting. Canelo leads the pack without a doubt, I dont care what Mayweather says or doesnt say.Posted May 5, 2013 10:15 am
I hate Floyd Mayweather, but he is indeed the best of the best. That aside, I’m not going to go overboard with my praise. When Guerrero beat Berto, I sarcastically said, “Watch Golden Boy sell him now as a viable opponent for Floyd.” Mayweather did what he was supposed to do last night and looked good doing it. I actually had predicted a shutout, but whatever. The fact of the matter is that he has few challengers left. IMO the only guys out there who pose a legitimate challenge are Canelo, Martinez, and Pacquiao (in that order).Posted May 5, 2013 10:08 am

YOU FORGOT GOLOVKIN!Posted May 5, 2013 10:05 am
Mayweather hasn’t fought anyone since losing to Castillio. The rematch was a lesson in running scared. Since then he has been fighting guys that are smaller with no power, or past their prime fighters with big names. It doesn’t matter who he fights, cause it will be a safe choice. Showtime just invested a ton of money in him. Showtime is not about to put their boy at risk. Sorry fight fans, it’s business at this point. One thing is for sure Floyd will not be remembered like Ray Robinson, Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Julio Cesar Chavez, Those guy’s were fighters, Floyd is not interested in fighting. He doesn’t want to get knocked out like his old man and Uncle use too when they fought the best. Floyd is top 25 but doesn’t crack the top 10 greats of all time.Posted May 5, 2013 10:03 am
Oh, and as this writer stated a few months ago, Canelo isn’t a good option now as the 22 year old is too washed up for the 36 year old Mayweather after fighting Trout. Honestly. That is what this clown wrote and was gobbled up on here. Floyd will wait til the 22 year old fights one quality opponent because that will ruin the 14 year younger fighter. LMAO Keep on hatin, makin excuses, sayin how if Pac wasn’t scared of needles before fighting Money (but not against anyone else LOL) Pac woulda made it close, how May’s scared of Ward or the Klitshcko’s or whatever else. He has been a top p4p fighter for close to two decades- literally. Every time he fights its against the top opponent in his division. His legacy is just that. He cleaned out 126, 130, and was calling out Mosley and ODLH, they both avoided him for years and years until they couldn’t anymore. ODLH and Mosley are both long gone now. Manny shot through the rankings after beating terribly drained ODLH and Cotto. Only other WW he fought was Clottey. He was exposed by facing much lesser counter-punchers than Money. Sergio was a big name because of one win (After losing to him the first time) against Williams. Now Pac and Sergio are basically done. All these fighters come and go, but the one name who is always at the top, and always fights the best is the same. Even at 36. So keep hatin’, keep makin excuses as to why he’s not as great as the video and resume says, and most importantly keep buyin’ to see the best at work, its people like you makin him the highest paid athlete year after year.Posted May 5, 2013 9:50 am
Pacquiao and Golovkin would kill Guerrero in 6 rounds, even without training. Floyd beat a nobody. Even a joke featherweight like Orlando Salido gave a beat to Guerrero. Next ATG Floyd will face another Multi división champion, SW weight No. 1 Rank, and ATG… amir khan.Posted May 5, 2013 9:48 am
Floyd must fights Rosado, Lara or Cotto 2. Puerto rican fighters are the best.Would be perfect on the puerto rican Independence day. What? why do you laugh?Posted May 5, 2013 9:41 am
Judah, Baldomir, Mosley, Ortiz, and Guerrero all #1 WW when Floyd fought them. Hatton and JMM, both #1 one division lower and top 3 p4p when Floyd fought them. ODLH and Cotto both #1 at 154 and top ten p4p when he fought them. Tried to fight Pac, first time Pac couldn’t give blood less than 24 days before a fight (though days later he scheduled to give 10 TIMES AS MUCH blood less than 2 WEEKS before facing Clottey instead of Money) Second time Pac turned down $12-15 million more than he ever made and what would’ve been a record purse, a full $8 million more than the current record held by Floyd. Haters say he’s boring but record amounts of money are being generated every time he fights, so many, many people obviously disagree. Floyd has only fought the best. Every time he has fought it’s been against the best at 147, a top 3 p4p fighter one division lower or the best one division higher at 154. He comes into the ring at 147 and is so good people complain and whine that he doesn’t fight middleweights. There is no one at Floyd’s weight (147) or lower that would even be close. If he doesn’t give up at least 20 pounds and fight the best at 160 or 168 it is seen as cherry-pickin for Floyd cause everyone knows he’s just that much better!Posted May 5, 2013 9:35 am
Jmm is a beast one of the best ever but if we were to see a second fight between him and Floyd we’d just be seeing the same out come as the first fight, in my eyes the only real fight left for Floyd is the Canelo fight!, Alexander, maidana,Garcia ,Angulo, would hurt his legacy not add to itPosted May 5, 2013 9:28 am
Here’;s what Floyd does, READY ! =
He allows an opponent to 1/2 bull him towards a corner or the ropes, as he gets about 3 feet from the ropes he sets and since the opponent cannot see exactly where Floyd is he has a way of making the other guy think he IS ON THE ROPES with no where to go , as the opponent thinks Floyda backed into a corner or onto the ropes they start to open up and throw, meantime he still has a good 2-3feet left behind him. As the opponent throws he steps back and that totally F’s up the other guy and Floyd scores at wiill that way.
Solution: have your trainer shout out a trigger or notification when he isn’t on the ropes, start to open up then stop ! Let Floyud throw then you HAVE HIM!Posted May 5, 2013 9:24 am
JMM isn’t a bad idea considering what he just did to MP. But I keep saying, MP was winning that fight and he had never looked better doing it.Posted May 5, 2013 9:21 am
He avoided the biggest threat to his zero when that threat was credible. That fact will always remain when considering the man’s legacy.Posted May 5, 2013 9:19 am
Why not Marques ll , remember after the first fight where Floyd was 25 pounds heavier and JMM went up which slowed him down a bit , Floyd paid to keep the fight on. Immediatley after the fight which was predominantly jabs because Floyd was afraid of getting countered, Jmm simply said :” Give me 2 more fights at this weight & I’ll beat him! ” Since the destruction of Manny and JMM’s comfortable -ness at this weight I’d say a rematch would be a good fight to see. Nacho & Juan have the highest boxing IQ of any fighter -trainner combination and between having fought Mayweather and all I bet its a much closer fight , perhaps even a missing (0) !Posted May 5, 2013 9:19 am
I’d like to see FM Canelo next or in the spring. I imagine DLH will time Broner to be FM”s last, or nearly his last fight. There is a reason Broner has jumped to 147: DLH has a hard-on for FM. He will throw any and every fighter he has in the ring with FM in hopes that one of them will beat him.Posted May 5, 2013 9:07 am
He should definitely fight Canelo aka Cinnabum but I don’t think Canelo could get past Quinlin, Lara or Rosado… Maybe Mayweather can fight Marquez and punk him as well to show how he can easily beat the guy who beat Paquiao.. even though Marquez was probably juiced to the Gills…Posted May 5, 2013 8:59 am
All Floyd has to do to make sure Canelo doesn’t pull a south of the border fast one is demand either same day weighin or post weighin weight gain limits.. he also has to demand random blood testing and make sure he checks canelos wraps for any Tijuana glove loading tricks..Posted May 5, 2013 8:56 am
I would like to see him fight broner… if off course he wins his next fight at welter…. I know its a bit early, but broner has got some real talent.
Canelo is my top choice. He’s young, hungry, dangerous and wanting to prove himself. Plus DLH wants it, so there won’t be any promoter problems, ala Arum. I would like to see him take more than 4 months off before taking the fight though. November would be better. Canelo just had a tough fight and FM has hurt his hand.Posted May 5, 2013 8:40 am
Fight night Wrap up.. Guererro got exposed by Mayweather as another Mexican sht talkin Tough Man limited skills plodder.. Ponce Deleon had his Belt Gifted to Abner Mares by the worse Ref in Boxing Jay Nady.. Abner was starting to fade and looked bad vs old worn Deleon.. That Mexican kid beat an old Venezuelan 3 divisions smaller then him… Rosado got robbed after putting Mayweathers fighter on his ASS and on the Bike… all in all a good night of fights…Posted May 5, 2013 8:38 am
As soon as FM started nailing RG with lead right hooks, it was over.Posted May 5, 2013 8:36 am
Trawling the weight divisions between Light Welter to Middle there is mo great stand out fights, however from a fans point of view! I would like to see
1 Brandon Rios
But if he leaves Martinez till last, it won’t even be competitive as the Argentinian Warrior seems to be showing serious signs of decline
Not even sure Floyd would call it a day
Maybe he’s saving that last one for BronerPosted May 5, 2013 8:22 am
Maravilla, Canello, Trout.Posted May 5, 2013 7:58 am
Another moronic commentator. Are there no reliable writers there?
Khan?? Maidana???? Is this writer nuts? Does he work for that idiot, Sc haeffer?
The real fights to consider are Maravilla, Canello, Trout, and maybe GGG.
And of course, Pacquiao…or is Mayweather still afraid?Posted May 5, 2013 7:33 am
Alvarez is to young for Mayweather ppl don’t care but it’s the truth.Posted May 5, 2013 7:28 am
He’ been inactive for the better part of 5 years; add to the fact he has not fought anyone in a caliber similar to Leonard, Duran, etc. and it answers the questions dead on about where he fits in the grand scheme of things boxing. Outside of Cotto, who was past his prime when he fought Floyd, as well as quite a few other well known boxers, all other opponents who have fought Floyd…within the last ten years…were not exactly world class opponents rated as best of the best by Ring Magazine at the time Floyd fought them. It can be accurately stated that For Floyd, it has not been about fighting the best as much as it has been gravitating towards low risk/high purse fights. This is what his legacy must include.Posted May 5, 2013 7:17 am
Martin “EL BRUCHADOR” Honorio
Guerrero fought like he owe Mayweather something.Posted May 5, 2013 7:17 am
Has to be Alvarez.Posted May 5, 2013 7:08 am
Olu G. Rotimi
Not a bad list. I think his lasy 5 opponents will be as follows at the following weight divisions:
Broner fought at super feather weight last year. So why not include mares who just fought feather weight and rigondeaux who may fight feather weight soon this year asossible opponents to Floyd jr. The real fights are with Martinez, Alvarez, and pacquiao. Yes, he is still dangerous and will give Floyd a real challenge.Posted May 5, 2013 6:59 am
