“Floyd’s the greatest ducker of all time”-NO he’s not. He’s the GOAT Cherry MAKER. And only a homo, troll, or retard would say otherwise. Which Fight Aficionado aka King Kong BUNDY qualifies as.

This guy’s an idiot… “Trout dominated Canelo before the knockdown and then dominated him after the knockdown.”

He didn’t dominate him before the knockdown.. Canelo came right out of his corner and knocked Trout down.. He didn’t dominate him after the knockdown.. What hard punches did he land??? He didnt land much of anythng.

Mayweather sold to many a record that defines, coward. Its interesting to attempt to understand why people would try to sell this guy as anything great. Lets say he wins Canelo, ok and then what. Canelo is a decent fighter , but he is far from great at this point of his young career. Canelo is solid, but he is not marque and there is a difference. Mayweather was never Marque, but a geat salesman and a great business man.

WTF is this story? Headline implies it’s a report from his camp so I was presuming there’d be word of what specific things he’s working on thus far and who he’s sparring. Instead it’s just another “view” piece about nothing. Has the writer ever been to a boxing gym?

Thanks Brother Hidalgo. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think the crux of what you’re trying to say there, in a roundabout way, is that you’re of the opinion that I’m the best poster on this site? I actually agree with you there, as I’m sure everyone else on here does too. Like I’ve said on numerous occasions, there are many strings to my bow. My comedic talent is just one of them.

I figure Pac with Rios will end before the fight begins. Pac will pass out in the dressing room because he is too weak from the drug test that he will have take.

Rome I have no problem debating with folks. I just have a problem with folks hurling insults when there point is proven wrong or you just don’t agree with him. I know people hate Floyd. Oh well thats life, you can’t please everybody. But I like his style and in my opinion and in many professionals peoples opinion he is the greatest boxer of our time. Just like there are a lot of people that think he has cherry picked fighters. But you can pick apart many fighters resumes. Heck people do it all the time on here.

Posted July 18, 2013 11:12 pm

Im still trying to figure out about Ward. Are you saying because of his style? Because he has cleaned out the 168lb division. Now if your saying he has a boring style and doesn’t take unnecessary chances well I would say if he can beat you with out taking those chances than more power to him. But if you are saying he is ducking someone or anything like that then I would have to disagree.

PEEJ. Dont get the post guys wrong. Mayweather has done great things as far as earning money and making us want to watch him get the f—– knocked out. Excellent business man who has learned what not to do from all those who came before him. Andre Ward is on the same path, but there business mind keeps them from what people want, we want fighters to fight the best at their best. The cherry picking is old and if you want to be viewed as being great, then you are who you KO

Posted July 18, 2013 8:56 pm 


TARK

Ward needs to fight Edwin Rodriguez… Who will be the first (1st) good boxer he’s ever faced… Ideally I would love to see Rodriguez have 5 or 6 more fights to round out his game … That can’t always be done so do the fight right now — it will amaze people.

Andre Dirrell certainly had the talent to become a good boxer. He’s an extremely disappointing mental case… He doesn’t have the mentality of a great fighter.. He’s the only guy who would have tested Ward among the guys Ward was supposed to fight… You need to be able to box to beat Ward.

Grennady Golovkin is also a great boxer.. Small for Ward, but I still think he takes Ward after he batters Martinez and Quillin.

A lot of great fights out there that never seem to happen.

Obviously Hidalgo we will never agree on Floyd. He is a great fighter and the can’t be denied. Only haters argue that fact. No he has not completely cleared out a division but he has taken on a lot of good fighters. He is now and has been at the point to where he takes on the biggest money fight out there. That’s what happens when you’ve been on top for so long. He has constantly taken on the Rings top 5 contender every time he fights. I go by the Ring ratings.

“Dude Ward has cleared out the 168 lb division. That is ridiculous.” This is true Peej and your statement of fact givens even more validity to my comments about Floyd Mayweather Jr. Floyd hasn’t cleaned out any division. He’s too busy putting on circus acts.

Posted July 18, 2013 6:12 pm 


Hidalgo

“He doesn’t have a fight like that because nobody has been able to test him like that.” That’s a self-delusional rationalization if I ever saw one. Floyd rarely puts it all on the line. He hunts and pecks his way to most of his victories. This is why he has only one truly legit KO in the last eight years. For instance, Robert Guerrero could hardly lay a glove on Floyd for 12 full rounds, yet Floyd could only box his way to a UD win? That’s an under-performance if I ever saw one–and that was yet another muli-million dollar fight by the so-called GOAT. No doubt Floyd is an incredible boxer, but by God, if he’d let it all hang out. Just once, since he became a welterweight. Just once.

You think Floyd ran away and I think Arum ran away from the fight from a drug test that now all of a sudden he is willing to take and is having Rios take. So you can’t really use the test as a way for Floyd to get out of it if Pac is now doing the test.

lets see how the canelo vs mayweather fight goes. I dont think its a super fight like those talked about from the 80s, but its the best we can do for now. If mayweather wins, then what does he win. Canelo isnt a super fighter himself. The battle of cherry picked records.

Posted July 18, 2013 4:15 pm

Peej pick a fighter that can help you support your comments, becasue Mayweather is a beat up product that has caused so much controversey for fighting pick opportunity opponents{ to passed to history has something worth gold but has the worth of packaged molded cheese. Andre Ward is on the same path. Ward who is anouther story of cherry picks to protect a tainted record of beaten fighters. Ward has yet to fight anyone unbeatened or with a name worth a darn.

peej com-on guy, Mayweather test of any ounce of noted greatness was going to be Manny, and he failed that with the run away theory. thats ancient history and that is the fight he will take to history, the fight he ran from. So I guess you cant offer one fight worth a dam.

I can help you out with that anwer,,, the answer is that mayweather never had a fight worth any of it. Hatton fight was considered to be a super fight,,,,, BUT Y.

He doesn’t have a fight like that because nobody has been able to test him like that. You can use the Castill of fight since there was a rematch but that is it. Just because nobody has been able to test him like that does not mean he is not going to the HOF. Floyd is a first ballot HOF and the greatest fight of the 2000’s.

“Floyd is facing his 5th Top 10 P4P opponent in his last 7 Fights.” This means nothing, P4P ratings are based on conjecture, not reality.

“NO one can come close to matching it…also he’s facing his 10th CHAMP in his last 12 Fights.” This means a lot and is impressive–at face value. Look a little deeper and you’ll find a history of lydocaine-supported victories, a sucker-punch win, weight-cheating, and fighting “safe” fights. Reviewing the individual fights in depth will reveal a boxer who, in his last 10 fights over a period of 8 years has had only one legit KO in a non-title fight, and who has a history of putting on “boring” performances because he’d rather just get the win, than do what he’s paid to do: FIGHT!

Lance Armstrong has been thrown down from his lofty championship perch because he was a cheater. Why is it that few people want to acknowledge that Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a cheater as well?

Yeah, Mayweather has beat 10 champs. Pete Rose isn’t in the BB Hall of Fame either.

Now lets not go overboard when you start looking at hearns, ray, robinson, arguello, young mosely and hoya, pryor, hagler and giants of that nature.

Not in boxing though, right? To be honest, these clowns that disrespect the majority of Mayweather’s oppenents are out of line with reality. And as far as this upcomming fight goes, I place this above Duran/Moore, and Leonard/Norris. The only reason Leonard took the Norris fight was because he knew Norris’ chin was weak, he figured he would knock him out… However I place this fight below, McCallum/Curry. McCallum was a beast, and shocked alot of fans with his distruction of Curry. Because of the size differnce, something could playout like that for Canelo, but I doubt it…

And if the ref does not call it then it is not a foul. Plain and simple. This sport has had plenty of dirty fighters. They get away with it because the other fighter does not make a big deal about it so the ref doesn’t neither. He didn’t use that tactic against Cotto or Guerrero. Or Ortiz for that matter. And Ortiz was the boxer that made a bid deal about it.

Donaire should not have been fighter of the year. He has fought all showcase fights. Ill give him credit for the Vic fight but then he got put on the shelf and was fighting nobodies. Then he fought Montiel who was way smaller than him. He KOd him is similar fashion which was nice. But that is it. Who in the heck has he fought? A bunch of old fighters one fight away from retirement or fighters coming off 15 month layoffs ready for retirement. If that was the case Wilder should of got fighter of the year. Donaire and Top Rank had lots of folks tricked into thinking Donaire was somethign he was not and a better fighter in Rigo proved them and everybody who thought he was elite wrong.

The ghost was a tune up cherry pick for Canelo who has a 50% chance of winning. There really needs to be some ring control on the arm locking that really saves mayweather on the ropes. Canelo needs to train for 6 rounds not 12 and just rain terror on floyd who cant handle true pressure.

Im confused how Rigo fights the best and he only has a handfull of fights. I am not saying he isn’t good because he is. But he has only fought a couple good fighters. Just people where fooled into thinking Donaire was an elite fighter and he is not. Rigo is elite but to say he is the best at this point is crazy.

Showtime was the best business money maker, they picked up floyd knowing he would have to face for once a name like Canelo which in turn earn showtime the biggest payday on the planet, not because floyd or canelo is anything that great , but in some minds Canelo is unbeatable and most want to see floyd on his way out.

Guillermo R, i agree that dude is boxing with a story and record to show it. Rigo fights the best and beats them all inside 12 fights , off the hook. Mayweather by far is boxing’s best pound for pound business money maker, but not by fighting the best, by picking the best name he knew he could beat.

Killa, floyd is the best businessman of boxing, robinson was the jordan of boxing and Guillermo Rigondeaux is the best skilled fighter

So Canelo is not in his prime? Corrales wasn’t in his prime? Judah was not in his prime? Hatton was not in his prime?

I really think Mayweather is the best boxer currently. He is the Michael Jordan of boxing, but Canelo has a good chance to win, and people dont want to give him his props.

Floyd didnt save boxing, are you kidding me with a goofy comment like that. Boxing is here to stay with or without the likes of floyd or anyone else for that matter. The days of real boxing is well gone, the days of super fighters who fought eachother in their primes and unbeatened, that is not floyd and never will be.

There is always gonna be someone else for Floyd to fight. Someone else that the fans will want Floyd to fight and if he happens to fight those fighters things will change instantly and folks will say he is cherrypicking. Like the old saying says you can please some of the people some of the time but you can’t please all of the people all of the time. Or something like that.

Gentleman enough of the fantasy bout, its well gone regardless who did what, old news. Canelo vs Mayweather, a fight for all ages, hahahahahaahah NOT. A fight for a good house party and an excuse to drink beer, YEA. Canela vs Maryweather, the fight for who the best cherry picker is.

Floyds resume is better than Pacs and he will go down as a better fighter than Pac also. I can name fighters that Pac ducked and also some cherrypicked fighters also.

I can say Floyd has never out weight any fighter by 20-30lb to look good or beat them. but its cool he beat mosley and dlh cotto at this weight he will do the same to canelo then what will they say

You can name then along PacMan record and lets all witness true championship level. I bet Mayweather takes second place.

Yeah I don’t see how Canelo is still coming up with 40 something fights. He has been a pro since he was 15. He learned in the pro style which means he did not have to break any amateur habbits.

He fought Baldomir for the laneal welterweight belt. Why wouldn’t he fight him. Then he took on the guy everybody wanted him to fight which was Judah. He fought Oscar and look what it has done, made him a PPV star. Funny how everybody was saying Hatton had the style and would beat Floyd but as soon as the fight was signed everybody changed there toon and said he was cherry picking Hatton. By the way Hatton was the light welterweight champion, the same guy that beat Kostya, the say Kostya that everybody says Floyd so called ducked. Hatton called him out and he took him up on the offer. Mosley was coming off a great win against Margacheato, the so called most feared man on the planet that his promotional team some how convinced every body that he was. Yes I can see Gatti being a picked opponent but what is even more facinating is that they all cheered Gatti in the arena and after they where all cheering Floyd. And Floyd beat Castillo. I had him winning by a round. If you had it the other way in a close fight that is fine. I remember watching it with my friend who dislikes Floyd and he said, yeah Floyd could lose this one it is close. Now I rewatched the first 5 rounds a couple weeks ago and had Floyd up 5 rounds to 0. Castillo was not laning anything. And then he came back in an immediate rematch and beat him clearly.

If you think is all about the weight then just have FMJ bodyguards as sparring partners. The seem big and strong why bother paying other employees when you can double deep. LOL.

what do u think canelo been doing he is 42 -0 he just aint coming up he is here and fought 95% small guys look just cuz yall hate Floyd and he beat ur guy don’t mean yall have to act like he is just cheating he is just good those guys wasn’t bum before he beat them so stop he is the best in the game right now so give him props like a real fight fan and not a hater

This writer has his facts wrong. First he mentioned Trout dominating round 7th before WHAT? it was the beginning of the round before Trout was knock down, so how could he dominate the first 10 seconds of the round. Second Canelo showed he can box with a lot of head movement even Trout complementwd Canelo after the fight. If you feel that no sparring partner can simulate FMJ, the stop being bias cause no sparring partner would simulate Canelo either.

TRUE: all fighters cherry pick at the begining of their careers to build their records. They also cherry pick after winning a big super fight all understandable. Mayweather has gone far and beyond cherry pick land, he has become a cherry tree. Canelo on the other hand in my opinion is still coming up. Great fighters shouldnt have to worry bout weight, sugar ray robinson never did and never complained especially when he beat them to the canvass.

I just cant give canelo all that respect b/c he fighting guys to small but I like the kid but he just not all that to me right now if he fight his weight class 168 and win then we can talk but he just don’t impress me right now

Both canelo and floyd have what we say no name records. Both records are full of no names and lack luster fighters who were somebody or were going to be nobody. This is a bigger test for Canelo who will have to over come consistant arm holding with of course solid in the middle ring speed. Mayweather isnt going to KO or hurt Canelo, question is can Canelo knock mayweather into orbit with a shot like Mosely who if younger would had been done with floyd.

Posted July 17, 2013 10:48 pm 


just that

ace high……….. yep yep yep.. Mayweather hold on like a little girl. Mayweather breaks opponents rythem by all the arm holding and arm locking. Is that boxing, maybe’ Is it being a chump, most likely. Mayweather has never had a point taken for holding round after round after round. Im not just talking hold and release, im talking hold on for dear life arm locks.

Posted July 17, 2013 10:27 pm 


four aces high

PEEJ/ Mayweather is a beautiful businessman. He is a good boxer. In all reality of anyone who knows boxing and has watched it long enuogh to know things. Know that anyone who is anyone agrees that mayweather hand picked his fights well after castillo who actually beat him by two rounds, no brain work to figure tha out. Mayweather than beat a legit fighter in that of corrales. After corrales it was cherry picking season, baldimore, gatti, hatton, old man hoya , mosely, and pathetic ghost who was just that a ghost. I agree that Canelo is the first young unbeaten star that mayweather will face. Canelo wins if mayweather is not allowed to do all that darn holding he does to save his butt in there. Canelo hits hard and closes down distnace well, Problem is that mayweather has mentioned by many, is allowed to hold. Mayweather cant handle inside attacks and everyone knows it

Mayweather boxs beautifully. He does not run. Funny how people say Canelo showed so much improvement with his so called head movement. When Floyd does it people call it running. Floyd just makes almost all fights look too easy so people thinks he is cherry picking or running. Na he is just dominant over good comp and makes it look easy. Not many boxers can do that.

Rome;;;;- I agree. If mayweather was going to make his mark, that would had been with PACMAN. We all know the truth there and need not beat old topics up. Canelo is to slow , I think. Canelo is strong and can cut that ring down, no problem. I agree with all the arm bars this guy gets away with. Take away the arm barring and mayweather is in deep trouble.

Posted July 17, 2013 10:01 pm

Well mayscary weather has cherry picked his entire career , so Canelo is the first solid fighter since castillo. I say 50 – 50, depends if the ref allows chumpweather to armbar all night long on the ropes or not, the fight is worth beer and pizza for low grade entertainment

The only chance Canelo has is a lucky power shot, still, if that happens he won’t have the stamina to close the show. Maywaether is gonna outbox and outsmart Canelo.
