Sred sez… “Canelo’s not on par with Floyd in a single technical category.”

How about Canelo’s left-hook-to-the-liver? Pretty nicely delivered if you ask me… How about Canelo’s 1-2-7-3 combo? Can Floyd match that? How about Canelo’s defense aginst the jab? Do you think Cotto would spread Canelo’s nose all over his face?

Careful Sred… Don’t let your head explode trying to come up with answers to these scintillating questions.

Happyboy- funny you ask that… I actually knew when my boxing spot wasnt packed. I got there early as usually like for all the other big fights they show and to my surprise it was only half full. So I knew Mayweathers PPV numbers must have not done so well with Guerrero. That was so easy to predict.

Bottomline, Canelo is a huge draw. You all cant deny that. Mayweather’s PPV numbers didnt do so well with Guerrero.

People don’t forget that Canelo has been fighting since he was 15. So it took him 7 years to be the headline on a PPV. It took Floyd about the same amount of time to headline a PPV. And there will be about 2.something million for this PPV and it will be because of both fighters, not just Canelo

“Let’s even assume you are right, that is the Mayweathers speak slang, It is English slang! Understood by all Americans!” Over-Ruled. slang is by definition regional and not meant to be understood by all Americans and thus, Isn’t. quite frankly, most Americans (including You) are embarrassed by the mumbled-mouth malaprop-ridden slang, slung by the Mayweathers. who the F(!) do you think you’re kidding? “Why can’t the same [Mexican] fan base propel [Mexican] fighters in the current ppv top list?” loyalty isn’t automatic. it’s not an entitlement. it’s gotta be earned and sustained through quality performances v. the best fighters, e.g., Canelo v. Floyd Mayweather. THAT’s how it’s done, son, and when it’s done right, you become the very standard of PPV buys against which the aspirations of ALL others must be measured. “Why can’t they force a single [Mexican] into the Forbe list?” OverRuled. DLH is the all-time PPV King and $ucce$$ful promoter of THIS fight-card? “What is the PPV number of ” the 22-year-old Canelo? by September 15, at least 1.5 million more than the 22-year-old Mayweather. “Angulo”? I Object. you mean the 24-fight Alfredo Angulo with two losses on his record? how the F(!) does he even enter this conversation? “Marquez” transcends the numbers. he is an ATG with an impeccable ring-legacy. he’s a fighter comfortable with being judged by his ring-performances NOT PPV numbers. I will now proceed to adjudicate this case on the spot: “SUPREME COURT”, for wasting this court’s valuable time and for making deceptive claims and completely unfounded accusations, you are found GUILTY for contempt of court and egregiously unethical behavior. if there was such a thing as an ESBar Association, I would report You and have you disbarred and banned from ever posting on a Boxing website again. THIS court is adjourned.

“Floyds two biggest recent PPV’s…….”CLASSIC! When will people learn that Mayweather ATTRACTS those from EVERY BACKGROUND! The Haters will tune in because they love to HATE, theyre ENTHUSED to witness his demise, so that they can say they were RIGHT all along! They can actually breath a sigh of relief! Theyre puzzled by someone that doesnt give in to their inquisitive NEGATIVE speculations that ONLY amount to delving in hyperbole! The HATERS desperately want Floyd to see their “INTELLIGENT” posts that dissect everything that theyve come up with that DISCREDIT everything that he’s worked SOOO hard for! The HATERS know that they are RIGHT – DESPERATELY hoping that Floyd reads and picks their minds so that they might express their CANDID ASSESSMENTS of how LIMITED he truly is! The HATERS need to be heard, their favorite line about themselves is,”do they know who I am?” “do they know that, back in the day, Miss. Grabtree put me as president of my 3rd grade class during recess….etc. Supporters simply appreciate HARD WORK and DEDICATION at its BEST! They KNOW Floyd is NOT invincible! They KNOW he has FLAWS! But they ALSO know he WORKS at being the very BEST at what he does – without SHORTCUTS!! We appreciate CHAMPIONS and the HARD work they put themselves through!

I don’t like catchweights! That being said, it would be unfair for Canelo to drop to 147 and unfair to ask May to fight a guy who would out weight him by 20+ pounds on fight night given the fact that May is topped out at 147. I believe May beats Canelo wtihout a ctachweight or rehydration clause. I wish he’d gone that route but , he didn’t and we have a fight that gives detractors of May a little more ammo to shot apart his legecy. Canelo is a fool for putting up his title for this fight. If May wants his belt make him fight at 154! I like fights that are about you come in at your best and I’ll come in at my best and we’ll get it on! All in all this is still a quality fight and if May wins I’ll give him an 8 out of 10. If there were no catch weight and he won,I’d give May a 10.

to all those trying to hold this catchweight against Floyd, refresh your memory.
Floyd beat 6 division world champ Oscar de la hoya at 154 without any catchweight. Floyd also beat 3 division world champ Miguel cotto at 154 without any catchweight. so that’s 2 world titles won at 154, if he wants to take a 3rd via catchweight he has earned the right to do so. when you’re the best u get to make your own rules.

Floyd’s two biggest recent PPV’s on a Mexican Holiday were against Cotto and Mosley!!! Both of whom are NOT Mexican… It’s safe to say that Mexicans, aand everyone else support Floyd Mayweather against quality name opponents… Marquez, Guerrero, Ortiz, Margarito AND Canelo could not do 600k buys against anyone NOT named Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao… Canelo just faced Trout on Showtime for 000000 PPV buys he’s NOT yet bankable at that level and unless Floyd gets hit by lightening he may never be… That’s why Fliyd pays the Guerreros, Ortizes and others peanuts because HE sells the fights.. He has MORE Twitter followers 4 million than he paid Guerrero 3 mill or Ortiz 2.5mill…. But Te Tumbo thinks they are the “Draws” sheer lunacy!!! LMAO! Floyd did more biz with Shane and Miguel and you cannot hide behind Oscar forever that was 6 years ago…

Old coot…you right it was called prizefighting, and table tennis was called ” whiff whaff” times have changed old boy..lol.
I,m not hating on Canelo my friend, I don’t hate on any boxer, having laced up myself I understand it takes balls to get in the ring , and I am full of respect for all fighters wether I like them personally or not.
I understand skills don’t always win, but when styles meet I look for how they match up and I can’t see Canelo causing floyd any more problems than the 44 who have shared the ring with him in the past.
The point you raised about pacman Marquez is valid, but I have never seen floyd walk on to a shot ever…..that’s in 44 contests, I have seen PAC hit often and hard in the past…I can’t say the same about floyd.
I think Canelo will, be competitive but floyd will do enough to nick the points as usual.
No complaints from me if Canelo digs in and gets the win, as I like the kid…..I just don’t see him having what it takes to beat floyd….that’s my take on it…..I,m no boxtradamus , I have no ego ,and no agenda, I just think floyd will have the answers Canelo brings to the ring.
I,m looking forward to the fight….and I hope for us fans that its a good one.
All the best old coot.

@ Limey J: Last time anyone noticed… Boxing was originally called “Prize-Fighting”, So it matters not what skills or styles you bring… In the end it matters who wins… Case in point… In Pacquiao V Marquez 4… All three judges had Pacquiao ahead… That is until Pacquiao carelessly ran into a right hand… KO… Marquez won the prize… So Floyd can outbox Cinnamon, all he wants. This time however, that may no be enough.

Redmond….The kids feet didn’t look too heavy when he was on his toes slipping and sliding, and making the quicker, slick rangy Trout miss badly, grant3ed, he only did that in spurts, but the kid showed he had a few more tools in his arsenal then the self proclaimed ” experts” credit him! He can box, has solid defense, can throw multiple punch combinations with power to the body, and head, only thing he needs to work on big time is stamina. Sure, he may not match Floyd in Every category, but boxing history has shown us time, and time again, that the most talented guy doesn’t always win….. The kids got a way better chance then Guerrero had.

Posted May 30, 2013 1:02 pm 


Limey jay

Some of you guys need to get a grip…..I know floyds not everyone’s cup of tea, to be fair he isn,t really mine, but he is a far superior boxer to Canelo.
Canelos only real chance is if he can take floyds best shots and still march forward, and put pressure on floyd…..if he can take floyds power, accuracy then he has a small chance….20% I,d say.
The hardest thing as we all know is to hit floyd with anything resembling a meaningful shot, and even if he does, then he has to capitalise on that…..no easy task, as floyds ring smarts are second to none…..I can’t see weight playing a part in this fight whatsoever, this fight will all be about skills, and floyds way out on his own here.
I like Canelo but this fight is all wrong for him….can see floyd winning at a canter.

Hidalgo

Canelo doesn’t have “heavy feet” SRedmond. You obviously know nothing about his boxing style. He’s no plodder and he’s no oaf. But you are right about his stamina issue and it will be even more apparent in this catchweight fight. Canelo was awarded the win over Trout because he was less ineffective than Trout was. It wasn’t a robbery in Canelo’s favor but it was a bit of a gift as neither fighter showed much to write home about that night. Floyd is a whole different ball game. Catchweight or no, he would beat Alvarez but he’s too worried about his zero and he’s too worried about getting hurt. Thus the reason for the catchweight requirement. Floyd knows that not only is Canelo good enough to possibly upset him, he knows he’s a big, strong man. But like you, I know that Canelo is at a distinct deficit in skills compared to Floyd Mayweather Jr. We won’t see the best Floyd Mayweather Jr. when they fight, nor will we see the best Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. The catchweight has made sure of that. But what the heck, right? After all, Floyd has “given the fans what they want.” Whatever.

Posted May 30, 2013 12:38 pm 


SREDMOND

Face it Alvarez is NOT an A side PPV player at this point and if he gets BADLY outclassed like YOU predicted against FMJ he probably NEVER will be… Both Manny and FMJ
had been doing PPV’s before facing and defeating former cash cow Oscar De La Hoya took them to the next level… Canelo had a big arena fight in Texas with cheap seats SO WHAT? Martinez did the SAME thing in Argentina and because he’s mostly a guy with hardcore support he cannot headline a PPV of any magnitude… I give Chavez Jr credit he drove a 500k PPV due in part to the popularity of his GREAT father… But Canelos an upstart whos ONLY hope of becoming even a Cotto level PPV star is pulling off a HUGE upset something you don’t even believe is in the cards as evidenced by you posting “you didn’t expect him to do much better than Guerrero”….. Not exactly a ringing endorsement Te Tumbo!

Posted May 30, 2013 12:37 pm 


SREDMOND

Only tools Alvarez has are size and power beyond that he’s not on par with Floyd in a single technical category and his speed and timing don’t compare…Canelo is a very good young fighter but he had ALOT working for him that night… VERY liberal judges who dismissed Trouts efforts, open scoring which told him he had a prohibitive lead and a skilled yet light puncher… Canelos NOT gonna do as well as Oscar or Cotto who were both HOF level World Class Champions with tons of REAL world title fights…This is gonna be a HUGE event but for the FMJ detractors get your excuses ready and prepare in advance Canelos heavy feet and iffy stamina are gonna earn him a shellacking at the hands of the P4P King…. This is an anti-climax hate to tell you..

Posted May 30, 2013 12:06 pm

I see a lot of people writing off Canelo already, and after his last performance with Trout, I kinda see why. But, in the kids defense in that fight, who does look good with Trout. Trouts a tall, rangy southpaw, pretty fast, and solid defense. He beat Cotto worse than Floyd did. Alverez has all the tools to beat Floyd, except STAMINA!! If he hires a strength and conditioning coach NOW, he may have a chance. If he shows up in the same shape he did with Trout….No chance! Kids gotta be in the best shape of his career to beat Floyd.

Posted May 30, 2013 11:53 am

@ Exiled Yank: Pacquiao was asking clearly taller people with longer reaches for catch-weights… Cotto, Oscar, Margarito etc.

However, check the stats Floyd is taller than Alvarez, and has a longer reach, and truth be said, Floyd should have moved up to LMW like 3 or 4 years ago. And we all know Floyd is faster, with a careers worth of more experience than Saul. So all that said-

“Catch-weights!”… “Floyd doneed no stinnnnkin’ catch-weights.”

Floyd is taking a tough fight. Respect to Floyd for taking this fight. 152 is a good compromise. Alvarez couldn’t make 147 and Floyd is a solid WW despite what everybody says. He couldn’t make 144 against Marquez and paid $600,000 for it. Great fight!
I see Floyd applying the same tactics as he did against Guerrero, using his feet and all his experience. I see Floyd winning a close decision.

There are certain guys who were built to beat you. Ralph Jones lost five straight fights before he fought Sugar Ray Robinson, but he beat Ray from ring post to ring post. Jones wasn’t a real good fighter, but Robinson refused to ever fight him again. He knew things weren’t going to get any better.

Antonio Tarver said he was extremely confident he could beat Roy Jones from the first day he ever saw him, but it took him many years to get Roy into a ring. “I know I can beat him. Roy is wide open for my left. Reggie Johnson is a great fighter but he doesn’t have the height, range, or skills. None of the southpaws Roy fought were very big. I’m too strong and tough for Roy.” Tarver is older than Jones so it wasn’t being 35. Everyone knew Tarver won their 1st fight and he didn’t let Roy get out of the 2nd fight alive. “Are you going to have any excuses tonight Roy?”

Alvarez could be Floyd’s Kryptonite. I’m not saying he is for sure. But this kid is tough to hit solidly. He’s super strong. He hits like a MFer. He has blazing hand speed with his combos. He can box. His body attack is withering. Well…OK he’s only 22 … He may not need finished skills to beat Floyd.

Glad this fight is happening and at 154. It will be a good scrap, probably better than the Cotto match, but Alvarez lacks the experience of Cotto. Either way, it will be a soild fight until FM’s skill, experience, and speed make Canelo start doubting himself. When that happens, he won’t wnt to punch and the fight will settle into the usual FM affair.

That’s knock on Roy Jones is BS….! Jones was pretty much undefeated for 50 fights unless you wanna count a DQ… He won Championships in 4 divisions including HW… He booked a tough win against Tarver, then he went back to the well And got caught with the Sunday punch after that he was done… But his skills and gifts were incredible, almost no one gets thru a boxing career unscathed it’s revisionist to suggest that the RJJ who easily handled young Toney, Hopkins and Ruiz should have fight like anyone other than RJJ… Jones accomplished more by 35 than 90% of boxers ever will…

You haters will not be satisfied unless Floyd loses. He fights who y’all want him to fight and y’all make excuses as to why its not good enough. Catch weight, who gives a damn. The boy out weighs Floyd by 20 pounds easy, but I guess that’s not enough. Didn’t here any of this with Pacquio fights though. And as fare as the Roy vs. Floyd debate, Roy was much more exciting offensively but he never as technically sound as Floyd at any point in his career. Roy got away with stuff because of his phenomenal athletic ability. Floyd is a better boxer than Roy ever was, he just not as athletic. Hell know one was or is as athletic as Roy in his prime .

Hell No! He’s in with one of the most intelligent and gifted boxers EVER…Mayweather is consistently the best Ring General in modern boxing he’s not a HW whos physically overwhelming of a guy with dynamite is his gloves, he simply has mastered boxing in the way Bruce Lee mastered Kung Fu…. Canelos gonna get beat by the subtle things that are not easily discerned.. The movements, the traps, the defense…I think Canelos gonna get it worse than Guerrero a more mean spirited beating….Floyd Mayweather Jr is gonna be missed when he’s gone… Sluggers and face first fighters come and go, but technicians of Floyd and Sweat Peas ilk come along only every so often…Get Ready Alvarez a storms coming…

James moron you know nothing about the pugilist sport. The same day weigh in was scrapped for health reasons not to disadvantage the legitimate boxers of that certain division. Broner, Mattheysse, Rios all would be forced to fight in the real divisions if the same day weigh would be re-instated. Definitely Canelo wouldn’t be competing at 154lbs either. Your hate for Floyd blinds you. All we’re saying is why have divisions to begin with, then defeat the same purposes that weight classes were made for? So Canelo can weigh at 172lbs and Floyd at 151lbs and you are fine with that? Who called out Floyd?

@James, I am not on the payroll, people have been demanding Floyd to fight Alvarez and when that happens, there are issues. There are some who have asked why Alvarez didn’t go down to 147 if he was really hungry for Floyd. Now a compromise is reached, there are still complaints. Mayweather is not the first fighter to fight at a catch weight and will not be the last. Manny has fought at a catch weight too and I am sure you didn’t whine? When it comes to Floyd people like to say other things, he never gets credit at all and this will be a perfect excuse when he wins. However if Alvarez were to pull off an upset you will praise him. Floyd is not a bigger fighter, and has no business fighting bigger guys at all. There is no logic that you can see James, because you are not using your logic. You say you either win like everybody else or the title should mean nothing…sorry to disappoint you all titles will mean something and there is nothing you can do about it.

Matthews you clown, this aint about Pacquaio oh wait Manny is fighting a guy coming from a loss in his previous fight, Morales etc etc. Get the picture moron. Jeez it aint about Manny its Floyd v Canelo. People complained about your idol fighting for a vacant title a guy who should’ve been banned for life in boxing. So Pacquaio can fight for a belt in a division that he has never fought in? Margarito fought a cab driver in his comeback fight in Mexico and that warranted him a championship challenge? You can’t tell me that your education was that bad. Perhaps you just plain stuck on stupid. Let me fill you in, Floyd will fight Canelo then May next year Martinez will be on the receiving end. Why Canelo looks fast against Trout, Martinez looks great against P. Willie but none of those guys are disciplined as him whilst in the ring none. This won’t be even a challenge. Don’t expect Floyd to trade bombs with a man 3 division heavier than him. These clowns wanted the fight now that we have it they still whinge and complain, too much oestrogen.

Another BS catch weigh fight. How come this writer and fans make a big deal about the weight . The rules apply the same for everyone. But when is a superstar they say it is not fair. If you want the 154 title than it should be a 154 fight . 2 pounds makes it unfair for everybody else that follows the rules to try to win a title at 154.

canelo is probably the most likely of all possible opponents right now that might be floyd. this will be the first time i pick an opponent of floyds beat him. im definetly going with a canelo win vs floyd. this kid is gonna continue to surprise everyone and he is gonna be ready for floyds running and punching on the run. and immediately the new star is born. the new BIG MONEY. the new oscar. hopefully broner gets up to 154 to face canelo too in the even canelo wins. either way if floyd wins its realistically time to start talking goat. if floyd wins i dont see why he doesnt fight pac, martinez, broner, mathysse, even ggg. if floyd can beat canelo i mean theres no reason for floyd to hold back on anyone or anything. no matter what i will be super impressed with whoever the winnner ends up being. but im picking canelo to win this.

Yeah I think it does over 2 mil. The difference between Canelo and Oscar is that the Mexican fan base will all back Canelo. Oscar was not big with the Mexican fan base because they didn’t think he was a real Mexican since he was born in America and of course he beat Chavez twice. That’s what really ruined it

The fight is at a catchweight, 152… Canelo repeatedly said he couldn’t possibly go below 154 and make weight to save his life.. Even earlier Wednesday he said that.. It sounds like a compromise weight after a lot of wrangling.. You always believe you can shed 2 more pounds…but I do think it will affect the late rounds because Canelo is still a growing kid, so he had to get this fight done now … or never. There’s not a gram of fat on Canelo when he climbs into a ring at 172. He looks like a side of beef.

Cotto was weakened by the two pound deal.

And so will canelo be weakened.

All the recent fighters going down in weight for catchweight fights end up losing.

Terry Norris was the most successful fighter going down in weight-vs meldrick taylor

Canelo is going to lose.

Hope the money he gets is worth losing his belts over.

This is as if Sugar Ray Leonard announced he would fight undefeated middleweight Michael Nunn, who was 36-0. Everybody talked about Leonard fighting Nunn for years but Leonard was noncommittal. Everybody thought Nunn or Mike McCallum might be Leonard’s next opponent—than Ray announced he would fight Terry Norris, a kid who was knocked stiff by Julian Jackson in a nationally televised fight. Jackson was short work for Mike McCallum when they were both undefeated terrors. Leonard was 34 and I would have been shocked if he fought the slick southpaw Nunn. I was praying to see it for years but never expected to see it … I’m more shocked that Floyd wants to fight Canelo Alvarez at 154. Leonard fought several fights at 160 or higher over the previous few years when Nunn was the main figure of interest. Floyd fought most of his career fights at 130. Leonard fought most of his at 147. Floyd fought twice at 154 but he’s so small he can’t even get up to 154. He can’t hold the weight and be in any kind of shape to wage a 12-round fight.

No REM, Floyd agreed to 50/50 but Pac declined the testing. Whe Pac finally agreed he did not deserve 50/50. As his PPV sells and ticket sells showed he was not bringing in the revenue he used to bring so there for he didn’t deserve 50/50. He then went on to fight 2 other fighters and those 2 fights didn’t even amount to 40 mil.

easy to have haters when you give them fuel like this catchweight scene, like floyd has never fought at the weight before

Posted May 30, 2013 12:40 am

I`m not against catch-weights per se, the current weight distinctions are just abitrary numbers.

I don`t however think a title belt should EVER be on the line in a catchweight. You can`t take a 154lb belt off someone while not allowing them to weigh 154lbs – that defies the point of the weight division.

I`ve got no problem with the 152lbs here though. People are tacitly accepting Floyd is simply more skilled than Canelo, so the question isn`t about who is more talented.

The question is how much bigger does a very good but not great fighter need to be to beat Floyd. Come fight night there is going to be something like a 20lb difference between them. That is enough of a handicap for it to be impressive.

Posted May 30, 2013 12:39 am

Floyd will come in at 148 lbs, And will be just too fast for Canelo. Canelo also will be swinging at air like Guerrero. And then when he get fustrated and take a breather like he various times against Trout. Floyd is then going to do him in with quick right hand leads, and sizzling jabs. It will be another routine win. Floyd will still have the haters.

Floyd Mayweather is not one of my favorite boxers, but I will give him credit for taking on a young strong kid like Canelo Alvarez. This will be a huge PPV fight only because of Canelo Alvarez and the timing of the Mexican holiday as Mayweather always sets up due to the large fan base of Mexican fighters. I have to give credit to Floyd again for using the strong Mexican’s fan base. The fight itself will be one of the most boring fights of any era because of the build up and Mega status some will try and sell fans, but the truth is that Canelo Alvarez barely beat Trout, and has fought no one else that is even worth naming. Canelo has punching power, youth, and excellent body punching. Floyd is going hit, hug, hold and sprint his way to an easy victory. Canelo is a very good fighter, but he has fought no one other than Austin Trout (barely won) to be crowned any kind of great fighter. The big hype surrounding Canelo is due to his red head and light skin, which is not the typical Mexicans. He has the Hollywood looks that makes him more fan friendly. Canelo does not have the speed, experience, style or athleticism to deal with a fighter that will not fight, but play it safe for 12 rounds. Unless the fight is held in a 5ftx5ft size ring, Canelo has no chance. If he had the fighting style of a Julio Cesar Chavez Senior, yes, I would see him stopping Mayweather, but Canelo cannot out box Mayweather or beat him with his style of fighting. The hype for this fight will easily out do the actual fight’s excitement. Mayweather signed this fight only because he knew Manny Pacquiao was going to make a huge PPV an financial success with his fight vs Rios. Mayweather can’t stand to be second to Manny Pacquiao in anything.

Floyd isn’t a JMW, he should be given credit for being one. On the other hand, Manny should have never gotten a title at 154, cause he never fought a ranked 154 pounder. Even in his 150 (4 pounds under the limit) catch weight fight for the vacant title, he fought a guy coming off of a one year suspension, who wasn’t even ranked. That was over the top, bogus.

I agree Tomato Can. I also believe if Jones and Mayweather where the same weight and both in there primes and fought each other, Jones would win. But since Jones slowed dramatically he no longer has the reflexes and will constantly get KO’d because he does not have good technical defense and of course Tarver broke his chin. Floyd has technically good defense and can stay longer. Oh I hate Tarver.

I knew Floyd would face him all along. He just likes to make the WIN more SWEET by letting everyone THINK that he’s ducking. He likes people to clamor for the Fight. All you have to DO is agree to Floyd’s terms and the Fight gets MADE. Pacquiao should take NOTES. Floyd by Pot shotting CLINIC

JMM was a catch weight. Lieweather catch whole lotta heat for not making weight ROFL. BUSTED!

I thought the Mayweather/Marquez fight was suppose to be at a catch weight fight at 144.

Don’t worry they will be hating after no matter what happens. If Floyd wins they will say he fought Canelo when he was too green and he planned it like that. If he where to lose which I doubt they will say Floyd was exposed. There will always be hating involved with Great fighters.

Be reasonable. So there’s a catch-weight, so what? At least the fight will happen. This makes me think of what Leonard said after he “won” his fight with Haglar. Leonard said that Haglar lost the fight at the bargaining table meaing that he gave up everything and it was all to Leonard’s advantage.

He DIDN’T Fight anyone at a catchweight….until NOW. SO his quote was CORRECT.

The Prince

Now if Floyd wins this fight, no excuses. Everybody was claiming Floyd was avoiding Canelo like Pacquiao (which didn’t happen). Now the fight is on. Floyd is truly one of the greats and you haters need to accept it.

Floyd’s last 7 Fights including Canelo TRUMPS Roy Jones Jr.’s entire CAREER. WOW WOW WOW!!!

Floyd is going to face his 5th Top 10 P4P Fighter in his last 7 Fights. WOW!!!! UNPRECEDENTED!!!!

Catch weight fights should be recognized for what they are. They are meant to even the playing field by weakening the bigger guy so the littler guy can have a better shot at competing. I don’t like them. I think Mayweather should stay at 147. But, the difference here, is this isn’t an all Arum card, where he has full control of his cash-cows opponents.

I wanted to see Floyd and Danny Garcia not this big bully but what’s the best way to get rid of a bully beat his ass lol

Posted May 29, 2013 11:31 pm 


Tomato Can

Speaking of Manny, he’s fighting Rios, while Mayweather is fighting another champion coming off of a win. That’s a pretty big difference. As a matter of fact, if Mayweather was the one fighting Rios (no knock him) fans here would be laughing him off the site.

I still think Floyd should have made him fight at147 cause canelo should be fighting middle weights but he would get his ass ko so he fight small guys bully I hope Floyd beat him into retirement

Floyd will begin to dance in the first round,Canelo will chase him all night long,if cotto brother almost ko Canelo in the first round, mayweather should finish him in three

I like Canelo but this is not a the guy to dethrone Mayweather…. Floyd’s a WINNER he’s gonna be sharp and ready for this kid…

Floyd is going to box his ass of golden boy should have kept canelo fighting c- fighters to make him look good he gone learn today lol well the 14th of sept

He did fight Cotto at 154 but Cotto does not hydrate up to 170

manny gave that title up with the quickness not fight for a unification, didnt he fight cotto at 154

Canelo good young champ i hope mayweather just gets the win. because if he expose canelo he will have a short run in boxing.

Posted May 29, 2013 11:21 pm

So what if it is at catch weight that still good hell he walk around at 170 to Floyd 151 so he’ll yeah PAC never gave that much please stop trying to find some way to hate on Floyd he is the truth and fighting for real boxing fans

Posted May 29, 2013 11:21 pm 


Tomato Can

there will be about 10 percent of the fans who wont accept a catch weight fight. I hope Mayweather doesn’t make a habbit out of it though, even if this is much more legitamate than Manny’s catch 150 pound catch weight fight for a vacant title against an unranked JMW in Margarito.

Posted May 29, 2013 11:19 pm

as far as excuses the catchweight will provide that

Floyd’s gonna slaughter Canelo, this is going to be one of his sickest performances… It’s over now…!

So much for cherry picking fighters. We’ll see what excuses come up after this one is over.

But this just goes to show u Floyd is a true champ and don’t duck fights he just can’t fight everybody but like I said this will be a boxing clinic if his hand hold up Floyd will hurt him later in the fight

Posted May 29, 2013 11:15 pm 


Tomato Can

So Mayweather will weigh in around 148 to Canelo’s 152? 2 more pounds is a lot for a guy that should be at 160. He’s got youth on his side though.

Posted May 29, 2013 11:15 pm

like I said folks gave manny hell over catchweights

Posted May 29, 2013 11:14 pm 


PILLOWFIST

Hold up! I’m confused. I thought May would never fight a young hungry and bigger lion like Canelo. Where are all the detractors. Get ready for the, May only chose Canelo because he is young and inexperienced excuse. GGG you next! Run and hide Martinez, Pacman, stick to politics ,May gots a legecy to build and cement. When he’s done ,people will speak of him with the same regard as Ali and Robinson, while Pacman will be spoken of in the same manner as Fighting Hererra.

Oh a catchweight. That kinda kills it. Ortiz can eter at 161 but canelo can’t. Dudes scared

Posted May 29, 2013 11:13 pm

Yes the weight has been set at 152. Mayweathers first catch weight of his career. I’m actually very excited about this fight. I think it will sell over 2 mil. Living up to his PPV King name

Where you at haters?

Posted May 29, 2013 11:12 pm

But I think Floyd should stay at 147 this is to much weight difference but I hope Floyd box canelo head of if this was the other way around ppl would call Floyd a bully but now it’s canelo it’s cool all canelo is a bully why don’t he fight. His weight

Posted May 29, 2013 11:11 pm

fought cotto at 154 thought floyd dont do catchweights

Posted May 29, 2013 11:09 pm 


Tomato Can

If it is a catch weight fight, fans will give Mayweather crap for it. But the weight difference and the fact that Canelo is young, not war torn, and hydrates up to the 170′s will have most fans giving Mayweather a pass, for even taking this fight.

Posted May 29, 2013 11:09 pm

Now all u Floyd haters can stop the hate this let u know that PAC was the one running but Floyd is saving boxing and has been for at least 3 yrs

Posted May 29, 2013 11:08 pm

Yeah you can bet there will be a rematch clause. That’s the biggest fight out there right now, no one’s going to pass up the chance of doing it twice if it’s worth it.

Posted May 29, 2013 11:07 pm

2 pounds aint much but I can still remember how floyd fans busted manny for making cotto fight at 145. 2 pounds of the limit

Posted May 29, 2013 11:06 pm 


Prof Konje

At this time, the weight, ring size, time of weigh-in, etc., has not been stated. Floyd must know something or have some type of plan. He would not be so stupid to give away age, weight, etc. Something is up.
Things need to be clarified.

Posted May 29, 2013 11:05 pm 


Tomato Can

I’m not sure about Mayweathers hands. It seems as though he’s always hurting them. Hitting Canelo will be harder on his hands. But he’s going to have to hit Canelo hard inorder to keep him honest.

Posted May 29, 2013 11:05 pm

Can’t wait ..gonna be a good fight.

Posted May 29, 2013 11:04 pm

Wouldn’t be surprised if there is a rematch clause to fight at 154 if the fight is close

Posted May 29, 2013 11:03 pm

It is at 152 seems like but they are saying its a unification fight which really means the Ring Champioship belt will be on the line

A catchweight. SMH

Canelo is 22… But he will be 23 for the fight… He’s getting his man strength and he’s been having a hard time making 154. I wonder if there’s a rehydration clause that limits him to a certain weight going into the ring, like 165 or less. That would seem to be a smart thing for Floyd to demand. Maybe they have it so they can weigh Canelo an hour before his ring walk and immediately start wrapping his hands and giving him liquids. A rehydration limit could slow him down a bit in the late rounds — but it might be over by then if the Cinnamon Kid connects. Canelo really needed to take on somebody the caliber of Trout before he goes in with Floyd … So it was great for him to reject the Cotto fight and demand Trout. I’ll bet the entire contract is not negotiated in final at this point, but there’s a verbal agreement to sit down at the table and hash it out because they both want to fight.

Please don’t mention the Tito vs Vargas fight. They one hurt me emotionally

Posted May 29, 2013 10:58 pm

Perfect example of a man facing a boy… I wouldn’t be surprised Floyd damages the young Canelo mentally sorta like what Tito did to Vargas physically…

Posted May 29, 2013 10:57 pm 


Big Rich

Great for Boxing! I think Mayweather will still win this pretty comfortably! The only thing is that they have agreed to fight at 152lbs
So all those people who previously were complaining about Manny can stop. Giving up 30lbs is no joke, even Floyd recognises that!

Mayweathers going to get what ever concessions he asks for, as will Canelo someday if he keeps winning.

Posted May 29, 2013 10:56 pm 


DEXTER MORGAN

Easy fight for Floyd… He will avoid the power shots then pot shot the sh-t out of Canelo… Canelo “power” will not be on display… This will look like the schooling he gave Marquez… Except Canelo will take breaks in rds and look worse than Marquez did if thats even possible…

Posted May 29, 2013 10:54 pm 


B Red

Its a great tough fight for both, i think Floyd wins the fight

Posted May 29, 2013 10:53 pm 


Fighting Words

That ring is going to be bigger then the one then Mayweather and Guerrero fight. The ring with Canelo will be about 30 square fight, and Mayeather will win a easy decission. I knew ShowTime was not going to let him get away by just fighting C level fighters, but the ring size will assure that Mayweather be successful in winning the 6 fights contract, especial as long as he is fighting fighters under the Golden Boy promotions.

Tomato Can

I got Mayweather by UD, but he could have some awkward moments in the fight.

Posted May 29, 2013 10:52 pm 


Tomato Can

So is the fight going to be a legit 154 title unification, or is it going to be a catchweight fight? In anycase Alvarez’s size advantage makes him a threat to win.

Posted May 29, 2013 10:51 pm 


SREDMOND

When Canelo takes this beating it’s gonna be soooooo fun watching these guys start downplaying the win… Floyd’s gonna massacre this kid..!

Posted May 29, 2013 10:50 pm

Im sure Floyd Sr told Floyd Jr what Canelo has to be on fight night,and Canelo agreed .ya dig

Posted May 29, 2013 10:44 pm 


PEEJ

WOW that was fast, my friend just let me know on Floyds Facebook that he posted he would be fighting Canelo and it is already up. Ill take Floyd by late stoppage due to stamina issues

Posted May 29, 2013 10:43 pm 


TARK

WOW!!!! …. But what has Canelo posted on Twitter? Is his team fully in agreement to the terms??? I hope this is real. I remember casinos generating odds for Mayweather-Pacquiao a number of years ago, and some big bettors coming in and laying 20 to 50,000 down on Floyd, who opened as an underdog.. But the fight never happened.. Man, I really want to believe this.

Nobody can accuse him of ducking the best opponents now; it goes to show that the farce between him and Pacman was due to politics (promoters, both boxers, whatever).
