Floyd will hold, run, counter and win a decision. also he isn’t knocking any one out at 154 with those glass hands even with cheap shots. So no fireworks here as usual. i wish the under card was next by itself but i can wait a week

TOO SMOOTH Look Buddy I am NOT saying FLOYD isnt a good FIGHTER.. But come on ALL his fights are with OLD past their prime boxers, or the others that should of NEVER been in the same ring as floyd. As for Gerrerro He should NOT of been in the same RING as FLOYD>>>> Yes FLOYD look great, But now he has to fight a REAL boxer PUNCHER with SKILLS. And Canelo isnt OLD PAST HIS PRIME.. If CHERRYPICKER fought Pacman, cotto or Paul Williams in THEIR PRIME and beat them then FLOYD WOULD of been GREAT.. But he DODGE them. Flyod = HAND PICK FIGHTS.. I remember this BIG STAR!!!!!!!!! Sugar Ray Leonard ( He TRIED to DODGE ROBERTO DURAN The WBC said You fight DURAN or get strip of your belt) ha ha ha ha A BOXER PUNCHER with some SKILLS beat that FAST HANDED< SLICK SUGAR RAY in Montreal Canada. Canelo should watch that tape

@ I See Good~ Please don’t tell me you think ODH won more than 3 rounds. As far as Canelo and FM goes, I just don’t think Canelo has enough speed, or stamina to hang all 12 rounds with Mayweather. Canelo has never been at this level before, there is nobody on his resume that would suggest that he wins this fight. Youth, and size aren’t going to be near enough and at this stage in CA’s career not enough experience. I’m not saying he doesn’t have a chance but his chances are slim. Look how sharp FM looked during the Geurrero fight and that was after a year lay off. FM may be sharper since he’s fighting more often. That may be a possibility as well. All in all this is a good fight for both guys and FM should get more credit than a lot of guys are giving him. By the way, just because I think FM will win, doesn’t make me a fan boy. I base my opinion on what I observed throughout both guys careers and what I think they will bring to the ring on fight night.

Hearns ALWAYS CRACK in big fights. Donald Curry Macallum Leanard.. They ALL fought the BEST in their PRIMES. The ONLY DUCKER well at LEAST he TRIED was Sugar Ray Leonard. The PRESIDENT of the WBC TOLD Sugar Ray YOU MUST FIGHT DURAN.. He did and LOST… Kind of REMINDS me a some one I KNOW.. Sugar Ray Lightning SPEED excellent foot work fought a TOUGH Street fighter. But the street fighter WON Duran.. Almost like CHERRYPICKER fast hands excellent foot work foot work AVOIDED PACMAN Pacman throwing BOMBS every second of EACH ROUND never letting up EXCELLENT condition. But that FIGHT NEVER happen. Right Floyd

TJ: I think that I would favor most of those fighters over either of them. Though
Curry and Trinidad more so at welterweight. The extra 3 rounds of most of those guys eras would have been more of a test for these two also.

SUGAR RAY LEONARD?
MIKE McCALLUM?
TERRY NORRIS?
JULIAN JACKSON?
DONALD COBRA CURRY?
WINKY WRIGHT?
TITO TRINIDAD?
SUGAR SHANE MOSLEY?

I don’t see that Floyd has lost anything at only 36… HIs speed and reflexes are intact. He may be older but he’s bigger, stronger, and faster than ever.. Bigger, tougher, and better.. He’s gained one Hell of a lot of experience fighting 17 World Champions.. Canelo has fought only 4 World Champion — and only Trout is better than Floyd’s toughest opponent, the ATG Miguel Cotto.

Floyd fought 5 World Champions who won World Titles in at least 3 weight divisions or more… He’s probably more experienced fighting great fighters at the World Championship level than any other boxer in history. That’s why so many experts say he’s the GOAT.

But you know what??? One lick on the chin can change all that — especially if it’s delivered by a 23-year-old power house with a sizzling straight right.. Can Floyd be hit real good??? You bet your ass he can.

IT’s GREAT TO SEE SO MANY fight fans on here, hanging their hats and reputations on what will transpire on September 14th….

At least half of you will have egg on your faces and will roll out the same excuses you accuse the protagonists will use for a loss or draw!

The truth is boxing will be the winner, no matter what happens and we really should not be living our lives vicariously through others!

I personally will sit back and enjoy the bout and will be very interested in both party’s next move after it ends!

Floyd has fought some of the best fighters. No he does not move like he used to but he has enough speed and movement to beat Canelo. The same Canelo that fought at 150 against a 147 lb Hatton who never fought at 154 before but still was awarded a belt. The same Canelo who feast off of 140 and 147 lb fighters whome he has trouble knocking out. Canelo has made a career out of fighting smaller fighters while Floyd has made a career out of fighting bigger fighters. Canelo has only fought one realy 154 pounder and that was Trout. And he barely won that fight.

TO SMOOTH You know nothing. Keep believing Cherrypickers propaganda… He is a FRAUD NEVER FOGHT THE BEST IN THEIR PRIME Its that freaking simple.. Aint that RIGHT OLD COOT I LOVE teddy Atlas on Friday night fights TYPICAL American Saying GGG should fight Martinez and Chavez Jr, and Froch.. Why NOT mention WARD???? Why not Quinlin??? Lets keep those belts in the USA. GGG can and would clean out the MIDDLE WEIGHT DIVISION and the 168 pound division.. It will NEVER happen I think only FROCH has the GUTS to fight GGG. He will LOSE but he is a real man. Big mouth but DUCKS NOBODY in his weight class. Just Like floyd ha ha ha ha ha ha NOT

TO SMOOTH What can I say Lets BEGIN!!!!!!!! Well Canelo IS NOT OLD , PAST HIS PRIME… Canelo IS the HARDEST HITTING MACHINE Cherry picker will ever fight, Canelo is a NATURAL 154 pounder. Walks around at 172. Cherrypicker LEGS are NOT the same. STANDS MORE FLAT FOOTED, Cherry picker can be HIT… OLD SHOP WORN DELAHOYA P R O V E that a JAB works WONDERS on CHERRYPICKER OLD Oscar prove that for 5 rounds…All that CHERRYPICKER had to do is WAIT past the 5th WHY??? Cherrypicker KNEW Oscar will and did FADE.. When CHERRYPICKER fought all his opponents Cherrypickers SPEED was UNBILIEVEABLE.. Well Canelo isnt EXACTLY SLOW in the hand speed either.. True NOT as fast as Cherrypicker but will be able to compete. Canelo is young and STRONG.. like Trout threw around Cotto he DIDNT EXACTLY do that to Canelo. This will be a good fight because its NOT another cherry pick fight. To be honest NOBODY knows how it will turn out… Hmmmmmm Remember all of CHERRYPICKERS fights in the past??? I myself just another day in the park for Cherrypicker EASY MONEY… Not this time buddy boy Not this time, It could go Either way, Hopefully CANELO knocks his cherry picking ass out. Yes floyd is good But he STAY away from the GREATS in their PRIME READ “OLD COOT” I UNDERSTAND that CHERRYPICKER is an American ICON Really thats because the USA sucks in the HEAVY WEIGHT DIVISION That division the USA control for well over a century.. NOT ANY MORE.. And when the K brothers retire the LIMEYS will control that division Good night I SEE DAM GOOD

Tomato Can

I can’t stand catch weight fights. But That was the only way this fight was going to happen. Alvarez is no war torn fighter coming off of a knock out loss, like Manny Pacquiao was fortunate to face in catch weight fights. This Catch weight fight is on par with the Delahoya/Hopkins fight. Maybe Canleo can duplicate Hopkins effort. He’s young and fresh enough to handle the catch weight with ease.

Posted July 9, 2013 8:55 pm 


Tomato Can

Floyd may not be afraid of Canelo, but he isn’t no dummy either. He knows that Canelo can barely make what he (May) walks around at. He knows that he’s no JrMW, and peaked out at 147. He also knows he’s the number 1 P4P fighter in the world. Therefore if a fighter is calling for a fight with him it’s going to happen on his terms. Unfortunately, that’s going to happen with anyone he fights until he’s knocked off his perch. And that’s the reason why this fight is happening at a catch weight.

Posted July 9, 2013 8:48 pm 


TOO SMOOTH

@ Old Coot~ I agree, I don’t like catch weights. I give FM credit for taking this fight but, he’d get more if it was a straight up fight. By the way, Canelo like Cotto, is a fool for putting his belt on the line. If the belt is for 154 the champ should fight at 154. The challenger can come in any weight he wants, as long as he is not above 154.

Posted July 9, 2013 8:29 pm 


TOO SMOOTH

@Old Coot~ Will you give FM any credit if he whoops up on Canelo in FM style? Or will the excuse be he beat up on a shrunk down man?

Posted July 9, 2013 8:25 pm 


Old Coot

I still love how suddenly, Floyd fans (aka Pac Haters) are defending Floyd for accepting a catch-weight now, when they constantly beat up on Pacquiao for asking for them against clearly taller, bigger opponents with longer reaches… i.e., Cotto, Oscar, Margarito etc.

However, if you check the “tale of the tape” as Jim Lampley so aptly puts it, Floyd is not only taller than Alvarez, but he has a longer reach to. And truth be known, 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.”

Posted July 9, 2013 8:23 pm 


Old Coot

Again, senior can babble all he likes… And of course he will, because the old dude can’t help himself… But the hard truth is that Junior avoided prime Mosley, Cotto, (pre-cheat Margarito) and prime Paul Williams, and is still pissing his Depends, at the mere prospect of ever being the Pacman’s punching bag!… STILL!! Even AFTER Manny’s KO by Marquez!

And all junior’s record of antics were cover for that fear. i.e., his BS accusations about Manny being on PEDs; his BS requests for totally unwarranted OSDT, along with his then likewise unfounded and insanely ridiculous purse demands, were ALL simply to distract from the nightmares Floyd has had of Pacquiao, ever since he witnessed him destroy Oscar, Hatton, and Cotto… PERIOD!!!…

That is all.

@I see Good~ So you know what FM is thinking! You don’t know jack! You just hate Mayweather, that’s it. Any chance you get you criticize the man. Please prove me wrong and speak about the what, whys and hows of the fight and stop wasting time babbling about nonsense! If FM is scared then back it up with facts. If you think Canelo is going to win, please explain your reasoning. For example, I believe FM is going to win because Canelo hasn’t the skill, speed or stamina to compete for 12 rounds, sure he has a punchers chance but will he get a chance to punch. See how it works. You state your opinion then back it up with facts. hope this helps you out in the future.

Cherrypicker didnt NEED the EDGE but JUST in case. Seems like CHERRYPICKER has NO EDGES this time, NO weight advantage, NO OLD WORN OUT FIGHTER, Cherrypicker was FORCE into this fight by HBO. Seems that they even caught onto CHERRYPICKER.. Poor FLOYD OLD, foot movment slipping, DEFENCE is cracking, Gee CHERRYPICKER just cant FIND a EDGE.. BYE BYE Cherrypickers 0

Yes of course my friends, Canelo has a good ring IQ but these fools think only Mayweather can. Trout is a slick boxer tall and jabbed the hell out Canelo and Canelo still dropped him. Mayweather will eventually get hit and when that happens Canelos power will be felt and down goes Mayweather like Silva.

Haimat:

The division is 148-154/jrMW, and it may be negotiable to where you want to cut-off for what weight you make it at but forget that. There shouldn’t be a compromise on the weight. Not after you have said you wouldn’t do it.
154 is max, that’s what you should allow.

What I would make an issue of however is how much a fighter is allowed to be by fight-time. And again, this goes back to the Gatti-Gamache lawsuit.

Posted July 9, 2013 6:51 pm 


PEEJ

Oscar started his career at 130 that’s why Floyd didn’t mind fighting him at 154. Cotto started his career at 140, that’s why Floyd didn’t mind fighting him at 154. Neither where true jr middles. Canelo is a true Jr Middle. Floyd stated over and over at the press conference that Canelos team came up with it, maybe not Canelo but his team and those questions would need to be directed to them about the catch weight. He did that I front of them. And I’ve stated numerous times I don’t like the catch weight yet that is the only thing y’all come at me with. Get some knowledge so we can talk about something different. Yes I know this is a big money fight. But facts are facts and Canelo has been calling Floyd out since he beat Cintron.

Posted July 9, 2013 6:37 pm 


Angel

Haimat:

Just saw a video with Canelo interview and he said it wasn’t him to suggest 152. He didn’t say who but said it just wasn’t me. Now who exactly came up with it if it wasn’t Canelo personally, I don’t know. Anybody from either team and the promoter could have suggested it as a way to get Floyd into the ring.

And Again, I’m against the 152 pound catchweight because it goes against what Floyd has said he doesn’t like about Pac as well as the unnecessary controversy it lends itself to with “did you fight the best Canelo” ?

And like Floyd has said in the past, I’m for both fighters being healthy. So if the max limit is 154 pounds, that’s what the max should be.

Now if you want to debate fairness for fighters to “make weight” and then blow up 10-20 pounds which gives an opponent a weight advantage, then we can discuss that.

That was a big issue with Gatti-Gamache and led to a lawsuit.

How come people are more concerned about the making weight for the scales but not how much these guys blow up in weight?

Not only the unfairness factor in it all but also the other side to ti- the health risks for the fithers?

Angel and PEEJ, no matter what, you guys are gonna come up with excuses or “facts” that Floyd is the perfect gentleman.
Listen, boxing is a business for a lot of people surrounding these two fighters. This whole, “Canelo called Floyd out” or “Canelo offered Floyd the catchweight” is all play for the galleries. It’s make-believe for the ignorant fans.
This fight is huge, every single detail is meticulously planned. The 2 lbs Canelo has to loose is a huge deal and Floyd knows it. That’s why it’s in the contract this time and not against Cotto. Every time Canelo is asked about it he clearly says that it was Floyd who wanted the catch weight. Why would Canelo want it?
I’m perfectly ok with it personally. Canelo is bigger than Floyd and 152 is a good compromise.
Angel and PEEJ are the typical Floyd fan boys. Ignorant and dumb!

I personally would bet mayweather in this fight. If canelo thinks going in there fast and furious like vin diesel is going win the day, well it ain’t. Mayweather is highly technical in skill level and he is going to box canelo’s ears off. Canelo is to green to win on points, I didn’t see anything particularly impressive against trout. Does anyone remember pavlik vs hopkins, youth and strength ain’t going to carry the day against the skill level floyd has, I look for it to be a lopsided point win for floyd along the lines of 9 rounds floyd and 3 canelo. Giving canelo 3 rounds when mayweather decides rest a round here or there.

Posted July 9, 2013 2:46 pm

Floyd is always in great shape but with Sr in the corner he seems be be some how in better shape. I just think Canelo has stamina issues and after 40 something fights it hasn’t been fixed then it will never be fixed. He won’t be able to just fight for a minute of each round. That just fits right in to Floyd’s pace

Posted July 9, 2013 2:11 pm

What I liked about Floyd in his last fight compared to his fight with Cotto was that Floyd, and I think its because of Sr, had his Jab working even more and his legs were moving.

Angel – Floyd is a WHOLE LOT faster and a WHOLE LOT sharper than Trout, they’re incomparable in those aspects of their game…hitting Canelo flush on the chin will NOT be a problem for Floyd.

Posted July 9, 2013 12:13 pm 


Titopa

Exiled Yank – The weight won’t matter…in fact, the heavier he comes in the BETTER for Floyd, Canelo is already heavy on his feet so any added (extra) weight will only make him slower and easier to hit. A chin is a chin no matter how heavy your are, with the right shot ANY man can be KO’d, so obviously Floyd has to be careful, but so does Canelo, after all, he was hit and wobbled by a lightweight (Jose Cotto) and Floyd is RAZOR sharp, so look for Canelo to get hit with punches he doesn’t see coming…and you know what sort of impact those can have. I’m picking Floyd to win via TKO.

Posted July 9, 2013 12:12 pm 


Angel

Canelo is calm and relaxed. He is a legit thinking fighter. He is not overreacting like some others who talked a big game but couldn’t deliver because Floyd got into their heads.

I was also impressed in his last fight despite wearing down a bit that he was able to make Trout continually miss because his upper-body movement from a defensive stand-point, was even better.

Usually tiring fighters just fall apart. Especially their defense.

Posted July 9, 2013 12:08 pm 


Angel

Floyd just can’t stand toe to toe early with Canelo. At least it would be unwise.
I’m always a bit iffy to just say the smaller more talented fighter is going to win when if that naturally smaller fighter stands toe to toe, gets caught in the corner, with a naturally bigger guy, that bigger guy unleashes hell to the body. It’s not just the head shots that may take you out but its specifically those body-shots thrown by the bigger man that hits the smaller framed fighter that always seems to be the problem.

The higher in weight you go, your rarely see the body-shot KO”s because bigger guys have more cushion to take those shots. They can be hurt but its rarer they get knocked down and out like the smaller fighters. But the big guys can do more damage to the naturally smaller framed fighter.

That’s one discussion I like when people talk about “size” and the differences.

Posted July 9, 2013 12:04 pm

Peej – I did not know Canelo offered the catch-weight. That is strange indeed. Either way, it’s not the weigh in that will be a problem for FM, it’s the fact that he’ll be facing a SMW when the bell rings.

PEEJ:

I think Canelo feels he can beat Floyd and that one extra pound to lose for scales won’t bother him which is why he came to the 152 number to entice Floyd to make the fight.

Older Fighters may look to cash out. Younger fighters tend to be ambitious, full of zeal, and think, KNOW, they will win.

Canelo wants to take Floyd’s throne.

The El Paso Fight Prophet:

HATTON does count.

When will people learn what the real deal is and or at least admit it that fight-night weight is the most important part of it all and the “making weight”for the fight isn’t your real weight?

Hatton does not weigh 140 pounds on fight-night. He comes up 9 pounds. Floyd was 147-149 lbs on fight-night for his WW fights.

SO, you basically now have two HEALTHIER fighters on fight-night at WW/147/Division, because you do not have fighters draining their bodies of required fluids to “make weight” and then hope they rehydrate correctly.

DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHY THIS WAS AN EVEN BETTER FIGHT AT WW/147 THAN AT 140?

And, it was Hatton who refuse to fight Floyd TWICE while both fighters were at 140. Hatton refused TWICE so Floyd moved up to continue his chase of Oscar.

Posted July 9, 2013 10:45 am

Floyd Sr does not negotiate Floyd’s fights. Floyd Sr used to say he wouldn’t let his son fight south paws. Canelo fought for his first belt at 150 against someone who never fought at 154. Couldn’t knock the guy out neither. It was Hattons brother. So what was it ok for him to do it then? And stop using it as an excuse to debate with me. I agree I don’t like the catch weight but that’s what Canelo and his team came up with so that’s what the got

@ Peej – Any time a fighter accuses another of using unfair weight advantages and then turns around and does it himself is a double standard. Regardless of what you say Canelo said, Floyd Sr had already said they would not fight Canelo at 154 which would be even terms given the fact they both hold titles at that weight and I already showed you floyd on records being adamant about him being the real 154 pound champ. Peej, You dont have to make excuses for floyd because he already does a good job of that on his own.

And if Corrales out grew the division why did he go back and fight a couple fights at 130 after the fight? Don’t sound like he out grew it to me. Can’t use that excuse when you go back and fight at that weight class

Posted July 9, 2013 10:27 am

You realize Hatton called Floyd out right. Floyd didn’t call Hatton out. You call someone out then go meet them at that weight class. That’s like Andre Ward calling Floyd a coward because he will not got to 168 to fight him

Canelo came up with the catch weight. I don’t like catch weight fights just like y’all. Difference in this one even though I still disagree with it is Canelo called Floyd out. In Pacs catch weight fights he was the one calling the bigger fighters out and having them come down. But in regards to the catch weight Canelo wanted it because he didn’t thin Floyd would agree to 154. We don’t know how the negotiations went but in reminds me of applying for a job. They normally ask how much do you want or think you deserve to get paid and lets say you put $10 an hour. Then they give you that. You work and ask another coworker how much he is making and he says 12 an hour. You go and ask why your not getting paid that. Well you thought you where worth 10 so that’s what we are paying you. We are paying you what you asked for. Canelo asked for 152 and he got it.

Here is another Floyd fact, He has not faced an undefeated fighter in his natural weight class since 2001 when he fought Diego Corrales who had already outgrown the division and was having serious issues making the featherweight weight limit which was well documented at the time. Ricky Hatton does not count because he had to move up in weight and was not a true welter weight.

I smell an upset. Out boxing Trout is NO JOKE! Trout is one hell of a safety first boxer with height & reach. Cotto couldn’t do a thing with him. But it comes down to boxing IQ, we know Floyd has it, but I think Canelo also has it.

Posted July 9, 2013 10:16 am

El Paso what you fail to realize is that Canelo called out Gloyd after he beat Cintron a few years ago. This has nothing to do with cleaning out the division. He wants to fight the greatest fighter of this era and wants that big payday. This has nothing to do with the belt. Floyd was gonna let the belt go because he is not a jridfleught. Oh and after the Cintron fight Canelo said he would meet Floyd at 150lb

In addition, I’m not sure why people are just writing off Canelo.

“Upsets do happen” and there are many reasons for it.

Canelo is big and strong and that alone can wear you down. He has killer combinations when he gets you in the corner (specifically). They are hard and accurate. And they are a variety of shots in that combo. He also has patience. Good Chin. And has no damage (unlike another fighter who gave Floyd a decent fight).

The El Paso Fight Prophet:

you quoted Floyd with this:

“I would never want to put a fighter in a position where he’s not comfortable. I want a guy when he’s at his best. If he’s at his best at 154 and he’s strong and he’s solid, then that’s the fight we’re fighting at. I walk around at 150, but at the end of the day – skills pay the bills…. Give me the guys where they are comfortable at their weight so there are no excuses.” {end quote}

READ THE FIRST LINE AGAIN AND AGAIN UNTIL YOU UNDERSTAND IT.

NEED HELP? He said “I WOULD NEVER”…..

Canelo is the one that made the offer, not Floyd which means Canelo knows he can make it.

Posted July 9, 2013 9:27 am

Old Coot:

I accept the catchweight because Canelo was the one offered it so he knows he can make it. Its one pound less than he just made. However, given what Floyd has said in the past with ripping Pac about catchweights, and how the public “may” perceive it with you being a hypocrite (despite you not being the one offering it), he should have said THANKS, BUT NO THANKS…lets fight at 154.

Two pounds isn’t worth the b.s. even though Fans are going to always come up with other reasons to hate on him.

Posted July 9, 2013 9:23 am 


Angel

Haimat :

Floyd Won’t even try to cut weight like others do which is why he will fight at 147 and fight right around that weight on fight-night. He also was thrown off schedule with the injury. A little bit of extra cash lost is nothing to him when he is all about making sure he is comfortable.

So yes, there is a difference. Especially given Floyd hasn’t had to cut weight in a long time where Canelo has the routine down. He has come in at 153 just recently and lower than that not to long ago.

Canelo offered the weight (because he knew Floyd would bite), not Floyd. So if he said 152, just one pound less than he has recently made for the scales, then he knows he can make it. Flod just accepted the offer.

Some of these comments are funny. Its so obvious that no matter what the Floyd haters will simply just always hate no matter what. Who else do people want him to fight? And please for the love of god drop the Pacquio nonsense. Pacquiao is not afraid of Floyd and Floyd definately is not afraid of Manny. So can we please once and for all stop that foolishness. The fight didnt happen for whatever reason. I blame both of them to be honest they both are at faiult and this happens all the time in boxing. You know how many fights I wish couldve happened in my lifetime? So once again please lets just drop that. Obviously Floyd is the favorite vs Canelo but its an intresting fight. I think late in the fight Floyd will try to really hurt this guy. Hes been a lot more offensive minded lately and is actually looking to hurt his man once hes got him in the late rounds. I think the marriage between Floyd and Showtime is the best thing that couldve happened for not only the sport but us fans as well because were going to see Floyd in some great fights. Peace…..

PEEJ, news flash, Floyd wanted Canelo almost as much as Canelo wanted Floyd. They both make huge money on this fight, probably double what they made last fight.
Floyd obviously respects Canelo enough to make him loose two lbs. He knows how hard it is to lose 2 extra lbs. He tried himself against JMM a few years back but had to pay a $600,000 for not being able to cut the weight.

No one is afraid of Paq– everyone saw how easy it is to be done with him. Simply take a step to the left– as he is coming in with the same 1-2-3-4-5 combo he throw every time, and counter him with at left hook. I encourage you to continue to make your comments now while you still can, as one more loss for your hero, and his career is over.

Please see the tape from his last fight– if anyone is afraid they are afraid that they might be the one to kill him, as everyone surely thought he was dead the way he lay on the canvas for over 5 minutes. No man wants that on their conscience.

The negotiation point was made by Canelo’s camp- if they are offering, then why not accept the concession. Maywether did not request the catch weight he requested to fight at 147lbs limit as he noted he no longer wanted to fight at 154lbs.

My point is it should not be an issue- the two fighters agreed as both signed the contract. If it is no issue to the fighters, then why is it an issue to the people who are not fighting.

Posted July 9, 2013 4:06 am

Well if 2 lbs makes no difference then what’s the point to the catchweights if not to RESTRICT OR HINDER a fighter? Why even making it part of the negotiations? Im not gonna haggle someone over $2 especially if im loaded with money. If Floyd is so talented and wants to fight a fighter at his most comfortable weight then why ask for the catchweights and NO Canelos team did not “beg” for it either. Floyd could have easily said 154lbs. It sounds retarded to rationalize that Mayeather fought Cotto at 154lbs and now Canelo wants to fight at 152lbs? Its stupid, makes no sense but of course he agreed to Mayweathers demand to make the fight happen.

Its not simply that Floyd asked for and is fighting at catchweight. Its that he routinely criticized Manny for using catchweights. According to Floyd it’s wrong it doesn’t matter how many times you do it, it’s wrong. Note Floyd’s own words reagrding Manny and Cotto:

What you fail to see is that Floyd is WBA Super JR Middleweight Champion, and Canelo is Regular WBA Jr Middle Weight Champion. That is why Canelo Called him out to clean out the Division Floyd is also Champion at. As you saw in the Video I showed you Floyd said it himself that he is the real Champion at 154. That other Bozo talking about two pounds with no re hydration is ok is just like you Peej, He is blind. Floyd wants any advantage he can get to beat Canelo and LIke you said Canelo is the real champion at that weight then Floyd should lean toward Canelos demands because he is the real Champion as per your own words.

Posted July 9, 2013 2:39 am 


Hatersbeware

Just a note- Let’s all reference the catch weight when discussing it in either a postive and or negative manner so that it is clear what we are talking about. The catch weight in this fight is 2lbs. “2lbs” with no re-hydration limit. This 2lbs was a concession made by Canleo’s camp in order to make the fight. It was not requested by Maywether as initially he had refused to fight at 154lbs in the first place. “2lbs” with no hydration limit was a way for Maywether to accept the fight while saving face, and not looking like he gave into demands of Canelo who in his mind is an unproven fighter and is not worthy of dictating terms. Canelo still comes out on the better end of this deal as there is no re-hydration limit. If there were a 2lbs catch weight and a stipulated re-hydration limit at fight time for Canelo then this would be considered to be a true catch weight fight, that would benefit Money. When this issue is looked at in the proper context of the following– 1) It was Canelp’s camp who negotiated the “2lbs” meeting point. 2) There is no re-hydration limit, so both fighters at fight time can weight what they want, and the fight must continue, any statement and or argument regarding the negotiated agreement becomes null and void. I fight MMA and No Rules Bare Knuckles fighting. In boxing and or in MMA once the contract is signed, then it is a fighters responsibility to be ready to fight at the prescribed weight stipulated by the contract. If you didn’t want to fight then you should not have signed the contract. 2lbs should not be a detriment to any true fighter, and cannot and should not be used as an excuse by either fighter. May the best man win..

That doesn’t matter… When Haye fought Wladimir he didn’t say.. “OK Wladimir.. You weighed into the ring at 245 for your last fight.. I need a catchweight 20 pounds below that.. You have to weigh-in at 225..

He never would have gotten the fight in million years — even though 20 pounds is a much smaller % of Wladimir’s weight than Canelo’s.

First off Canelo agreed to a catch weight to Lure Floyd into the fight which Floyd did not want. If Floyd wins than good for him but to say you are the greatest fighter before the smokes settles is alot like what Roy Jones use to do and that is why I made the comparison.

Floyd won the title from someone who used to be a jr welter, then a welter and now a jr middle. Same when he won the title from Oscar. They moved up so Floyd didn’t mind fighting them. It is totally different when the guy is naturally a bigger than you. And Canelos team came up with the catchweight so you should ask them. And once again Canelo is the one calling out Floyd, so he should of met Floyd at 147. That is like Ward calling out Floyd but saying he has to come to 168. Floyd has moved up from 130 to 147 and fought at 154 twice with out even weight 154. Heck against Cotto he came in fight night at 147. And Canelo is the Champ, the belt that Floyd has at 154 is meaningless since there is actually a Champion at 154.

When there is fighters like Martinez, pacman, Paul Williams,Canelo, in the past and you choose to fight Ortiz,past cotto,and Guerrero while being p4p champion it puts you in the cherry picking category NOT taking from his greatness but it does put you in that category,I wouldn’t say Floyd is scared of Canelo but he is intimidated by him, and would probly preffer fighting someone else at this time.

Posted July 8, 2013 10:50 pm

Guerrero can’t box… Trout can box extremely well… He outboxed a great boxer in Cotto 11 rounds to 1… Canelo outboxed Mosley 11 rounds to 1… And Trout by an average score of 116-111.. My score was 114-113.

Guerrero basically fouled Berto more than all his other opponents put together.. Then after the final bell started clanging he hit Berto another 20 times for good luck.

Robert Byrd wouldn’t let Guerrero brawl a little bit against Floyd.. When Guerreo had a hand free to punch the referee is supposed to let him work.. Byrd shouted “NO NO NO NO NO” Got between them.. “Let him out.. let him up.. let him out.. let him out.. let him up.. let him out.” or “Back out.. back out.. back out.. back out.. back out.” He said it 10 times in case Robert missed it the first time.

That’s OK for Canelo.. Because he’s a boxer not a brawler.. If Byrd is the referee it’s not going to hinder him too much — but they’ll probably get an agreement to use somebody else.

No excuses come Sept 14th Canelo will Win and leave many with their mouths wide open. The excuses will fly on and after Sept 14th. Canelo will win and still Floyds fans will look for reasons to call him a goat.

Martin “El Bruchador” Honorio, of course Floyd will box Canelo. It’s call boxing and his game plan should be to outbox his opponent. The reason why some fans find Floyd’s fight boring is because he makes their fighters look like amateurs. You and many others would love for Floyd to go toe to toe against Canelo with the hope to see him getting KO…it ain’t happening.

Thanks Peej. Yep, you can hate Mayweather out of the ring, but while he’s in it if you can’t appreciate how well he applies his craft, boxing is NOT the sport you should be watching.

Absolutely right Patrick

“The subtle shifts in pace, the masterful use of angles, the on-the-spot adaptability-this is what boxing at its highest level is all about. To true boxing fans, a Mayweather master class is every bit as entertaining as a two-fisted brawl. Genius is only boring to the poorly-informed and the legitimately dim-witted.”

Of course Floyd is not afraid of canelo! If he didn’t trade with Guerrero, no way he’s gonna trade with Canelo! He’s gonna potshot him to death and he’s gonna be on his bicycle all night! GUARANTEED! This is gonna beeee —— BOOOORRIINGGGG!!! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Mayweather has never underestimated any fighter which is why he’s been on top all these years. Plus everybody knows what he is gonna do yet nobody can stop him

To add, Canelo does not plan in bullying Mayweather, he knows Mayweather will move in and out and fight defensively. WE all know that. Thanks for the update Sr. 1 punch 1 PUNCH, he will get dropped like Trout. I really do think they underestimate Canelo’s skills and I really hope they do. Just like Mosley and Trout underestimated his skills.

True…. hes terrified of Canelo. Its not about intimidation really. Canelo is not even trying to scare him.
