“If Floyd has a trilogy with Canelo” I think a second bout with Canelo is very likely. Obviously if Canelo wins, but also very likely if Canelo puts on a very good showing. You know, not Robert Guerrero-like.

Thurman is coming… He’s determined to get to Floyd before his 6-fight contract is up.. He has a chance but not a big one.. There are 5 guys with the prestige to fight Floyd already.. Thurman will have to knock one of them off. If Floyd has a trilogy with Canelo or Matthysse — and these things do happen in Boxing — He’ll never make it.

“Oh, I don’t know about that Peej. We may see that fight happen before Floyd’s six-fight contract with Showtime ends.”

Great point, Hidalgo! I would love to see FMJ fight a slick, highly-skilled southpaw like Lara at 154lbs. And 3G is on record saying that it’s his ultimate dream to fight FMJ at 154lbs.

But I have a feeling that Floyd is going to vacate again, if he’s able to get past Canelo, and start focusing on fighting smaller men again — like Guerrero.

“I’m not here to argue minor points. I argue MAJOR points. ” You actually don’t have the ability to argue at all. If you increased your boxing knowledge you might. “Floyd chose not to have the WBA title.” Duh. Just like he chose to cheat against Marquez and like he “chose” to pay a $600,000 penalty. Floyd needed to get back his $600K and decided the title and belt were less important to him than the $600K. He realized he was stupid. Only problem is he was stupid again because he could have had yet another title and belt–you know, the things you repeatedly point out that are so great about him? How many he’s won?

He never ducked Pac and Pac weighs too much to fight at 140. That’s why he is fighting Rios and having him move up. So that talk is Crazy. How come he didn’t defend his bogus title after winning it from Maracheato? What excuse will you come up for that?

He doesn’t need to man up at defend the 154lb championship he can relinquish it. He is the Champion at 147 so the titles are now meaningless. You don’t even know if GGG can make 154. He has never made 154. There is more money at 154 yet he is fighting at 160. So if he could do it why doesn’t he already. You can’t claim he won’t fight someone especially if you’ve seen them never make the weight. Besides GGG has business at 160 and really hasn’t earned a big money fight yet. He has a couple more fights to go. And what does that prove of a 160lb fighter fighting someone 2 weight classes below. Nothing at all. Why did GGG decide to not fight Hopkins when Hopkins said he would meet him at a catch weight? They responded with they are staying at 160

Only a greedy, arrogant, moneygrubber with no honor (who was already a mega millionaire) would’ve turned down the WBA Title/Strap just because of a few hundred thousand dollars in sanctioning fees.

Floyd does NOT live by the Bushido warrior code, and does NOT fight for honor, pride and legacy above all else. His approach to boxing is much more similar to a guiltless CEO, greedy banker or promoter, like Bob Arum.

Too many great fighters, honor and legacy are more important than anything else — especially when they already have more than enough millions.

This is one of the major reasons while I’ll never respect FMJ as much as REAL warriors who value honor, belts, unifying the titles, and legacy above all else. These invaluable accolades are more important too men of good character, who don’t consider the all-mighty dollar to be their personal “God” in life.

That being said, there is absolutely NO excuse why FMJ doesn’t own all WW titles/straps if he’s truly the so-called GOAT.

I’m not here to argue minor points. I argue MAJOR points. The POINT is that Floyd CHOSE to not have the WBA title. Because he certainly could have had it after SPANKING the WBA CHAMP Shane Mosley. …Threw it in the trash is a figure of speech like when I say I dumped my ex girlfriend. I didn’t literally dump her into the garbage can. I figuratively did that.

Posted July 30, 2013 2:45 am

Well if Canelo didn’t want to fight at 152 he shouldn’t of offered to fight at that weight. And I’ve already explained about Oscar and Cotto. They both started out at lower weights. And Floyd never weighed over 151 for either fight. Floyd can call himself champ all he wants. He is just a titlest who so happens to be defending the title he won, a title you said he wouldn’t defend and he is defending it against the Je Middleweight champ. Then after he is going back to his natural weight class at 147. And he built himself up to 147. His natural weight class is more towards 140. He came out of jail less than 147

Posted July 30, 2013 1:30 am 


TARK

One has to remember that Floyd fought MOST of his career fights at 130… He didn’t move up to 135 until he was 25 years old… 154 is a little heavy for him.

The 152 concession he got from Canelo was a sharp business move.. Canelo is a growing kid and had to dehydrate 18 pounds to barely make 154 for Trout.. Trout is also huge at 171 and literally beat the crap out of Cotto.. He had Cotto by 5 pounds into the ring and really didn’t feel anything Cotto threw — or so he said … Trout DID feel the stuff Canelo threw.. Floyd felt the stuff Cotto threw.. Aside from Mosley and Judah I’ve never seen Floyd get hit like that… The difference was, Cotto was still landing well in the 6th and 8th rounds — Floyd had Judah and Mosley well whipped by the time the fight got to the 8th.

Obviously, if Canelo can make 152 without distroying himself too much, Floyd is in for a tough night.

Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. The Lion King of Beat Street)

“Floyd is not a 154lb fighter. He has already stated that.” No, actually FMJ considers and calls himself the Jr. MW Champion of the World, so there is something wrong with that.

And it was actually Canelo who challenged him, and it took FMJ some time to make a decision and officially accept — but only under the conditions of a lighter catch-weight.

Floyd was big enough to fight ODLH and Cotto at 154lbs without a catch-weight, right??? So why is it that he’s suddenly not big enough to fight Canelo at 154lbs???

I think it’s because he’s truly intimidated by Canelo’s power and wants to make sure he comes into the ring as weight-drained and weakened as possible. And there are millions of fans would love to see FMJ fight guys at 154lbs like Lara, 3G, Trout, Perro and Vanes.

But I agree with you that FMJ will likely take the path of least resistance, as always, and fight one of the top Jr. WWs instead — so he’ll know that he has the size advantage ahead of time.

Posted July 29, 2013 11:17 pm

Floyd is not a 154lb fighter. He has already stated that. He fought 2 fighters that started there careers at lower weight classes and beat them. Nothing wrong with that. And now he is challenging Canelo. Yes at a catchweight but so what. And once he wins the fight he will probably go back to 147lb. There is nothing wrong with that. He is giving the fans what they want. Nobody is gonna want to see him fight Trout, Lara. Not to mention Floyd has already said he is not a 154lb fighter. He will go back to 147 and probably fight the winner of Garcia vs Lucas if it is Lucas since he is calling him out. But of course he will get hated on after everybody is saying he will never fight Lucas if he wins. It is like that with everybody he fights.

“Floyd already WON the WBA when he beat Mosley but he threw it in the trash to keep his sanctioning fee in his bank account….” Well, that certainly honors the sport, doesn’t it? but you’re wrong. Floyd didn’t fight Mosley for his WBA belt, Floyd didn’t win–nor had he ever won–”the WBA”– belt and Floyd doesn’t throw his belts away. The belts that boxers win are theirs to keep for life. I seriously doubt Floyd has ever thrown any belt away unless he got really disgusted with the sanctioning body who awarded it to him. If he did, to my knowledge it’s never made the news.

Now, if you’re stating that Floyd symbolically threw away his belt(s), meaning he forfeited a title or did not fight for a title because he refused to pay sanctioning fees, then you need to say what you mean. But to my knowledge he has only done that once. Floyd didn’t want to pay the WBA sanctioning fees for fighting Mosley for his title. So, he opted not to fight for the belt. But he didn’t “throw it (the belt) in the trash.” It wasn’t his to throw away.

The WBA charges boxers 3% of their purse as a sanctioning fee for championship fights. Had Floyd agreed to fight for Mosley’s WBA belt his sanctioning fees would have been somewhere in the vicinity of $1 million. That’s ridiculous. However, it is very interesting to me that Floyd would willingly pay a $600,000 penalty for not making weight in his fight with Marquez but balk at paying the WBA sanctioning fee when he had been doing so throughout his career.

Floyd didn’t pay WBA sanctioning fees for his fight with Mosley. But, he did pay WBA sanctioning fees for his fight with Cotto, and he paid WBC sanctioning fees in his fights with Ortiz and Guerrero. And of course Floyd has paid sanctioning fees for his other championship bouts before his fight with Mosley.

In my opinion though, Floyd didn’t fight Mosley for his title because he needed to recoup the $600,000 he had to pay to Marquez. What better way to do that than to refuse to pay the WBA sanctioning fees? Makes sense to me!

FMJ will either have to vacate or be stripped if he gets past Canelo. He’s not a REAL champion at Jr. MW because he refused to defend his first 154lbs title when he barely beat past-prime ODLH. And then vacated like a cowardly b*tch.

FMJ will again refuse to defend all his 154lbs titles if he gets past Canelo.
This all means one thing: that Floyd is a just paper champion at Jr. MW
and is really a 4-division world champion, NOT a 5-division world champion.
Nuff said! Period.

You’re missing the MAIN POINT here, son. FMJ currently owns two major titles/straps at 154lbs and is ranked the #1 Jr. MW in the world by Ring.

Because FMJ refused to vacate, that means that Floyd is still trying to claim dominance over Canelo’s weight class. This situation is far different than the feeble examples you have provided. Win or lose, FMJ is either going to have to vacate, again, or be stripped. AS many of his supports have admitted, he’s a WW and shouldn’t be trying to fight Jr. MWs for titles he’s not willing to defend.

Posted July 29, 2013 5:25 am 


CORRECTAMUNDO

I don’t need to make UP any numbers. The REAL numbers support the FACTS that I’m stating. Canelo continued facing WW’s and even Jr WW’s until he faced Trout….And Floyd actually should have never faced Canelo above 147. Floyd is #1 P4P and shouldn’t concede anything to the Challenger. The Challenger is supposed to concede. Whoever heard of the Challenger calling someone OUT of their weight class??? Besides when Leonard called Lalonde down from 175. He didn’t pull that against Hagler. And Haye didn’t pull that vs Wlad. Canelo challenged Floyd SO he actually should have come down to 147.

If FMJ beats Canelo, then he better stay at Jr. MW and defend ALL those major titles against the other top dogs at 154lbs.

But he won’t defend them like an ATG and you know it! He’ll simply VACATE just like he did the first time he won a Jr. MW title — like a little b*tch playing childish games. That’s partially why he’s the cherry-picking chess master of over-hyped promotions.

I’m also not a fan of his two-year fake “retirement” that he used to wait for some of his stiffest competition to get beat or grow older — past their primes.

These are not the actions of a brave, honorable and courageous ATG World Champion. And certainly not the actions of the so-called GOAT.

Floyd has been a paper champ at 154lbs ever since he beat ODLH in 2007. Because he refused to defend his title at 154lbs. And he’ll still be a paper champ at 154lbs if he beats Canelo because this fight is being fought at a lighter catch-weight, NOT 154lbs. The fact that he’s being permitted to take Canelo’s LEGIT 154lbs titles from a lighter catch-weight is pure B.S.

If FMJ happens to get past Canelo and take his 154lbs titles, he will STILL be paper champ at 154lbs because he will refuse to fight the other top dogs at 154lbs. He will NEVER fight guys like 3G, Lara, Kirkland, Vanes or Perro at 154lbs, so should be STRIPPED.

In boxing, a REAL champion must defend his titles against the best competition at his weight-class (154lbs). If he refuses to defend his titles, he must VACATE or be STRIPPED.

Well thank you for the explanation, “Simple Simon!”

Broner said after the PM fight that he wanted the fans to pick his next opponent, and the boxing public chose Matthysse. Lucas would sure as H3LL love to fight Broner after he takes Garcia’s titles.

If FMJ gets past Canelo and takes his 154lbs titles, he better be prepared to defend those straps vs. other REAL Jr. MWs like Lara, Kirkland and 3G.
3G can easily make 154lbs, so FMJ better be prepared to fight him or either VACATE or be STRIPPED. Otherwise he’ll continue to be noting but a paper champion at 154lbs.

Matthysse is going for the Ring Magazine 140 lb title which means he has the opportunity to become TRUE CHAMP of the division. SO he’s not thinking about Broner. He’s thinking about Mayweather though….Mayweather is about to become the TRUE CHAMP at 147 AND 154…not to mention #1 P4P. ..Maybe Matthysse will think about Broner after Floyd takes him to school.

It’s B.S. because Matthysse was the fans #1 choice and Broner is going to end-up fighting Maidana or some other weaker fighter. And I don’t really buy the whole “scheduling problem” excuse.

Good win for Soto-Karass over Berto. Berto was outclassed through out the fight. Don’t know just how far Soto Karras can go in the division, but apparently he will now get the opportunity. Andre Berto act was exposed as a very limited boxer in his last 2 outings, time for him to retire to some other occuction

Good win for Soto Karass. Berto has been exposed as a very limited fighter in his last 2 bouts. Can’t give him enough credit for his courage, however that will only get Berto seriously injured in the future. I hope Berto recognizes his limitations & hangs up the gloves.

Btw, kudos to the ref for perhaps unwittingly foiling the promotional and “official” scorecards. like most everyone else actually watching the fight, following the KD the ref also assumed that Berto was hopelessly behind and couldn’t possibly improve on his performance during the previous 11 rounds. he wisely puts a halt to the bout and Soto Karass collects his hard-earned win with an assist from “Renuente” who wisely disregarded his corner’s instructions to “box” the final round and went for the KO instead. with or without open-scoring, Soto Karass knew that he would have to win by KO to avoid being robbed by “official” scorecards.

Excellent fight-card last night. Thurman took some serious risks to earn his KO win. the fierce action almost became monotonous in the Figueroa v. Arakawa bout. Soto Karass re-established himself as the other formidable tough guy in the division. Maidana v. Soto Karass II would be solid. Berto confirmed his reputation for not being the smartest, strongest, or grittiest welter in the division. IF he decides to continue, i would still consider him a formidable and dangerous opponent. just not the most formidable or dangerous contender in the welter division.
