IF CANELO GETS THE NOD over Floyd, please let us all know what his next 5 bouts should be?

Or do you not think he and his camp will CHERRYPICK as you say their way through the field?

I am very interestied in learning who you think he should step into the ring with?

Truth is i’ve been on this site and others calling for many reforms in boxing…

The advent of the PPV has seduced the fans into thinking they were actually getting the best topline fights, when in reality we were being brainwashed by the PT BARNUMS we know as BOB ARUM, GOLDEN BOY, SHOWTIME & HBO, who were makig the most bucks out of us by offering us the least, packaged as though we were being given gold.

It’s the oldest trick in the game and we the fans always fall for it.

As bad as the Alphabet boys are, there used to be a rule (which no longer seems to apply) that the champion would face his mandatory challenger at least once every 12 months… Only exceptional circumstances would allow for this not to happen and otherwise the champ would be stripped.

With PPV money a fighter now only fights once or twice a year and in your words is allowed to CHERRYPICK his most LUCRATIVE opponent… PLEASE remember LUCRATIVE does NOT mean best, or most dangerous….

This is why since the mid 90′s as cable TV, pay-TV took off boxing has had a proliferation of titles, alphabet boys and parasites all jumping on the bandwahon to get their pounds/dollars worth….

It’s no longer a sport but a ruthless business designed to part us – the fans (or is that fools) with our hard-earned cash…..

If a decent fight breaks out then that is just an added bonus….

This is why we are fooled into thinking that two C Grade fighters prepared to risk brain damage and other long term illnesses and injuries, by standing in front of each otehr and belting the living crap out of each other with little or no finesse is deemed worthy of payperview, when we could see a similar but far higher standard of scenario with two A GRADE fighters waging a spectacular war but armed with skill, finesse, bravery, guts, determination and every thing that is good about boxing for free….

We did that with the 14 round slugfest in WILFREDO GOMEZ vs LUPE PINTOR (one of the greatest fights I’ve ever seen)!!!

I SEE GOOD – Every fighter today is a CHERRY PICKER……

Go through their records!

TJ you dont see canelo calling himself #1 p4v king. Floyd fights are hand pick. canelo has skills, CANELO IS YOUNG, CANELO can PUNCH. And Canelos defence isnt that bad either. Floyd has faster hands thats all. Floyd doesnt KNOW what to do. Canelo isnt OLD PAST HIS PRIME, Canelo has SKILLS.. Yes CHERRY PICKER doesnt KNOW what to do. BECAUSE CHERRYPICKER has HAND PICK FIGHTS ALL HIS CAREER. Sept 14th wont be a WALK IN THE PARK FOR CHERRYPICKER as his PAST 30 fights. Watch CHERRYPICKER RUN ALL NIGHT. Hes been EXPOSED as a COWARD. NOT fighting the BEST in their PRIME. FACTS are FACTS More people are WAKING up now to CHERRYPICKERS matches. SHOWTIME isnt STUPID. They are on to CHERRYPICKER.

FYI — The Dawson/Hops decision was reversed because Ref. Pat Russell (after commending me on my defense of him), agreed to change his story in teh 11th hour. Had Pat Russell stuck to his guns and not caved to commission (or other) pressure, the decision would have stood. Also note that I come and go as I please — and the go in my last departure was to sell another one of my businesses — the 5th business sale of my career. And then I immediately startede another.

IT’S VERY STRANGE….

Only a few short months ago when SAUL CANELO ALAVAREZ had just stepped out of the ring with a washed-up KERMIT CINTRON, 3 bouts and only 18 months ago this site was AWASH with posters slagging him off as the most protected boxer in boxing.

Now, after 3 bouts with SUGAR SHANE MOSLEY, JOSESITO LOPEZ and latterly AUSTIN TROUT most posters arte now saying he is one step removed from THE SECOND COMING!!!!

YOU can’t have it both ways….
So, which one is it guys?

I remember people asking when’s he going to face someone his own size and weight instead of CHERRYPICKING and beating up on Welterweights?????

Come on, you all know you’re lying if you say you didn’t….

CANELO himself was a Weleterwight only 3 years ago…

I have nothing against people saying he ‘s going to win, but please don’t jump ship like a rat in the night and fess up!

CINNAMON had more haters on here than Floyd, but the moment he signed the contract it’s like the whole world flipped and all those CANELO HATERS suddenly became CANELO lovers….

Please can one of you turncoats have the guts to come on here and tell us why the U-TURN?????

Come on guys…. You know who you are….. Man up!!!!

To ALL cherrypicking CLOWNS out there. Cherrypickers DEFENCE isnt that GREAT. OLD OSCAR JAB cherrypickers head off for the first 5 rounds. OLD WORN OUT MOSLEY TAG cherrypicker.. I dont see that there isnt much difference in defence from Cherrypicker to Canelo. I blieve FLOYD has FASTER HAND speed. Canelo HITS harder so that EVENS it up. Either WAY Cherrypicker is in a REAL fight first time in his carrer. Showtime FORCED Cherrypicker into this fight OTHER WISE this FIGHT would never of happen.

Canelo is a certain size.. On fight night he can’t come in light.. He has to come in at his best weight if possible and not train down too fine. Training down too fine doesn’t make you faster, it just taps your energy and strength, which actually makes you slower and less powerful.

As far as your weight QUICKNESS will be more of an asset than POWER in this Fight SO come in light. Come IN under 160 on Fight night IF you CAN. Being more than 10 lbs slower than Mayweather is not to be advised. You have to be as QUICK as a LW to beat Floyd SO leave that 170 lbs + body at home.

Posted August 6, 2013 11:48 pm 


CORRECTAMUNDO

Floyd is the KING of nullification. SO Canelo mustn’t get frustrated at the inevitable lack of production from most of his attacks… He’s got to prepare for a bout where one shot here or there WINS the round. ..Remember Floyd’s Defense is at least TWICE as GOOD as Trout’s and he’s the smaller target. And also remember that this is a CHESS player you’re facing not Checkers. SO set your second half of the Fight punches UP in the First half of the Fight. Create a game plan where you can checkmate him in the Championship rounds where there’s not much time left in the bout to adjust….Learn from Judah and Mosley who came with their BEST TOO early which gave Floyd time to adjust and then dominate. Bring your A game from the opening bell but Save your BEST for LAST and hope that its enough.

Posted August 6, 2013 11:43 pm

Bark… What Canelo needs to do is box up to his abilities and forget all about Floyd being the GOAT… He needs to reach Floyd with jabs… He needs to get his right uppercut counter working.. He needs to throw straight right leads like the one that dropped Trout.. He needs to move his feet easy, well balanced, and quickly.. When he lands he needs to follow up well and change up his combinations like he’s noted for.. He fooled Trout quite a few times.. And if and when he gets a chance he needs to hammer Floyd right into the canvas.

What he can’t do is think, “OMG!!! This is Floyd Mayweather Jr.”

“HIDALGO

The conversation was about Mayweather, not Pacquiao. All this GOAT discussion BS. It’s just BS and that’s the argument I was making.

But Pac has done the same thing as Floyd, especially in the jr. middleweight division where he fought Cheatarito for a vacant title, won it, then immediately vacated it. He went for the title just because it was there but after fighting Margarito he realized he was way too small to fight in that division.

Ahh Yesssss.. Andre Berto… Got whipped by Ortiz, Guerrero, and KO’d by Soto Karass.. Three moderately tough guys with no technical skills whatever … and he winds up with 3 losses…

The only guy he whipped in his last 4 fights was the horrendous Jan Zavek… Joe Herron called Zavek “a very good boxer” and predicted he would beat Berto… That’s when I had too much and hammered Herron on his foolish and uninformed prediction.. I told him Berto was going to score an easy and early KO.. I don’t even remember the fight except that Berto was kicking ass for a change.

Berto is bad… but he’s not THAT bad. There are some fighters out there he can beat … but you no longer get a Floyd fight for whipping up on Berto.

Nathan…. Floyd can be beaten on points. The fact is, ANY boxer in fistic history could be beaten on points.

Judah started well, but lost his resolve completely. If you have an ATG enough jab you can score a lot of points on Floyd—no boxer can perfectly defend a masterful jab… If you land a snappy enough jab up Floyd’s nose you force him to blink — and you can shoot a follow up punch in there… Cotto jabbed Floyd smack in the nose a lot, but I was amazed he didn’t jab Floyd in the belly… It was right there for him… When Mosley nailed Floyd he didn’t follow up well… He seemed shocked that he hurt Floyd and displayed the cool of a 4-round fighter… Shane never showed me the killer instinct—except when an angry Mosley obliterated MargaCheato… If you nail Floyd you have keep your brain working … and attack with cold fury.

Nobody put a good fight together against Floyd… Doesn’t mean nobody will.

Goodmorning gentlemen. It’s okay in my book to be a fan of an athlete. You admire tjeir skills in a particular sport or competition. That’s why we are called fans. However its a whole different development wjen you cross the line over to FANATIC. That appears to be the case with a few, not all Mayweather admirers.on thus site. I don’t see any issue with perhap disputing a fellow on a particular issue you may be in disagreement with, Pacquiao, Mayweather etc…Par for the course I suppose. That’s fine. What seems to be off the hook is when a fellow completely denigrates other fighters to the point of just sheer childish meanspiritedness if someone has the audacity to give a perhaps view point that a Mayweather enthusiast doesn’t like. That in my book is really schoolyard grade school mentality. I don’t have ti name names but im sure most of you gentlemen know the usual suspects. Anyhow shout out to the soldiers out there, Hidalgo,Junio, lionking, Donovan, Hecdog, Tj, Adrian etc… Peace and strength

PLEASE TELL ME WHICH DIVISIONS Manny Pacquiao has cleaned out?

Who did he beat at the lightwer weights?

He won his Lightweight belt vs the C-Level paper champion DAVID DIAZ, when EDWIN VALERO (yes, let’s not go there) was wreaking havoc… Many of the so-called titles he won were of the vacant variety or against people that none of us can remember!

He won his Super Welterweight crown vs MARGARITO who had just come off of a long ban, when neither fighter should have been ranked for another vacant world title!

As, I’ve said before boxing nowadays is a joke and the fighters of yesteryear would probably be even more dominant than they were if they competed in today’s version of fractured baubels!

Can’t be done on points…..

Posted August 6, 2013 8:52 am 


Nathan

No fighter will out think, out box or out condition Floyd period!!!!
However I think ( just an opinion only) the only way to beat Floyd is by KO ( can be done on points he’s too good).

Firstly: you will have to get it done before the bell rings for the 6th round, by then he has figured you out and you have already lost.

Secondly: Fight dirty, be willing to have a point or two deducted but not enough to be DQ.

Thirdly: Maul him pick him up and throw him into the corner ( see secondly for point deductions) then pound on his guard until it breaks down, smash on his shoulders, chest and body this will take the famous shoulder roll out of the equation.

Finally: KO him

Simple Yes :)

“I see good – perhaps you can tell us just when was Mayweathers prime considering the fact that he is 36yrs old now?”

In my opinion, Happyboy, It was likely when Floyd was a super featherweight. He won the WBC title in 1998 then successfully defended it eight times over a period of three years. That’s how he got his super champion status. He’s neither attempted nor done anything like that, in any weight division, since then. He fought briefly as a lightweight, even less as a light welterweight. Until fairly recently, Floyd has fought sporadically as a welterweight, even more sporadically as a jr. middleweight. So I’d say when he was fighting as a super featherweight was when he was at his boxing best. But I guess it depends on a person’s individual interpretation of “prime.”

Posted August 6, 2013 8:31 am 


Hidalgo

“Floyd is the GOAT and it isn’t even CLOSE.” In your mind maybe. Let’s see how he’s rated 25 years from now. Today’s ratings are the impulse. Tomorrow’s ratings will be proven by the test of time, after people have calmed down, gotten off the hype train, and starting thinking more clearly. Floyd has never cleaned out a division. He may have a bunch of titles in a bunch of divisions. but he never beat all the champs in any division, nor even all the top contenders. His greatest stint was at super featherweight and four measley fights in the lightweight division–two of those fights being against the same guy. He spent a very brief and unspectacular time in the light welterweight division. As a welterweight, he cheated on his weight against one of the biggest names and best fighters in the sport and has become known for his extremely long layoffs from the sport, his boring fights, and for cherry-picking his opponents. Earlier in his career, he had a history of winning fights with the help of pain numbing injections while his opponents were fighting with no aids at all–xylocaine is a PED because it enhanced Floyd’s performances. Floyd was fighting and winning with the aid of a chemical substance. To top it all off, Floyd has never made a fight with his other contemporary great–Manny Pacquiao–and that asterisk will forever be by his name. You don’t have to admit all this but you should because it is the TRUTH–something you’re always spouting off about. If Floyd is a GOAT he’s an artificial GOAT. Wait, that would be GOAT*.

I’ll have plenty opportunity to list a lot more FACTS that makes Floyd the GOAT that I don’t care to list now….The fans are in for a real TREAT here. Canelo vs Floyd is the BEST Fight that can happen at 154 right now. This is a PRIMETIME Boxing match with MUCH SKILLS and Boxing IQ…..This is the BEST vs. the BEST.

Sorry but Floyd is a great fighter. His resume is better than Pacs. So no matter how you spin it Floyd is still a great fighter. You can claim he hand picks opponents all you want. You can name any of your favorite fighters and I can break there records down also. Of course he is gonna say he is the beat. What is he gonna say someone else is better than him? Why? If that’s how he feels then that’s how he feels. Any sports figure feels they are the best. That’s how sports people think. When I play basketball I always think I’m the best player on the floor and if there is someone that thinks they are better than me that’s who I’m guarding. They gonna have to prove it.

Round 7 of the Alvarez-Trout Fight was a solid 10-8 round for Canelo… You get 2 points for a round you score a knockdown in — unless your opponent does something significant in that round such as rock, stagger, or hurt you with a punch, or battle back like crazy.. Knockdowns are unusual events other than in a mismatch… You get a lot of credit for them and the remainder of the round was fought on fairly even terms.

“Funny how the commentators felt Trout won the rest of the round”. it’s actually a shame since it’s what’s wrong with boxing broadcasts. it was wishful commentating on the part of Bernstein and Paulie whose commentating i actually prefer but it was jus too obvious who they wanted to win: the American fighter. ultimately, they bungled the broadcast by calling Trout’s anticipated success without it actually happening. i’ll concede that Trout’s lack of efficacy was deceptive. he always seemed to be on the verge of doing what he obviously prepared to do but Canelo was simply a lot better than he imagined and it was Canelo who exploited the situation with breakaway defense and ring-generalship. at the final bell, you looked back and thought that Trout never really had a chance. he never even got close. that is the lasting impression of this fight.

peeee j i dont think its hate. May has been controversial for so many reasons. one reason is his mouth. He makes all these stupid claims of being the best who ever stepped in that ring. He blabs that he is better than ali robinson and ray leanord. One thing for sure is May has never took on true opposition and he did a wind sprint away from PAC. may really hasnt really did anything great. he wins because he has hand picked his opponents for years. that is smart and its dumb. smart because it keeps the belts and the money. dumb because nobody looks at him as more than avereage. canelo fight will be no dirrerent. canelo is undefeated but he really isnt that great and who as he really beat much like may who has he really beat, nobody

“Trout not only got Dropped in the 7th, he was wobbled, and remained on wobbly legs while absorbing approximately 12 more Canelo powershots and scoring a couple of his own along with a few pitty-pat jabs. he swung all-right but 90% of everything he did was blocked or simply ducked. it was a solid and the most efficient 10-8 round I’ve ever seen.”

That is precisely right! And the only fans who don’t agree with that are FMJ nut-hugging fan-boyz and other chango boyz who aren’t capable of scoring a fight accurately when it involves one of their brothas. Real talk.

No it doesn’t. Trout was showing grace in defeat. Something most fighters don’t do. So we get upset when a fighter speaks his mind after a loss when he thinks he won, we get upset when a fighter makes excuses. Trout does the right thing and so it is written in stone. Any interview after he said he can see Canelo winning but he felt he won. Plain and simple. That is what I will go with.

Yes… it was a close fight, as I’ve said many times, and you are correct about the judges being off the mark with their scores — especially the idiot who scored it something like 118-110. He should’ve been fired and banned for life.

However, Trout failed to land one single, hard meaningful punch in the entire fight. And he simple didn’t land enough shots by overall volume to take the majority of the rounds. Seven rounds to five for Canelo is accurate, and I fully agree with a score of 115-112 because of the one 10-8 round.

Anything that Trout has said since — after being coached what to say by his team, managers and promoters — is is totally irrelevant. The only thing that ever matters (as far as decisions go) is what a fighter says in the ring, when put on the spot, directly after the fight. Real talk.

Some win for Leonard… Duran was a disgrace…

And Hearns woke up the morning of the Leonard fight 6 pounds underweight… How the Hell did that ever happen??? Some preparation… He actually had to spend some time absorbing 4 pounds of liquids so he could weighj-in at 145.

Negative. I judge fights the way I see them. I fell like Trout beat Canelo by a round and have stated over and over that I would not argue if you had Canelo winning in a close fight. As for the score cards that were read, they where ridiculous. Also Trout has said plenty of times in interviews after the fight that he felt he won also but as I’ve said, he also says that it was a close fight and he won’t argue if you had Canelo winning in a close fight. I am a boxing fan first and I can judge a fight fairly. I have no problems with doing that. So you are incorrect.

I submit to you just go on YouTube and pull up Leonard vs Andy THE HAWK Price. The Hawk was a much avoided welterweight contender who many thought that Leonard was making a mistake in fighting. The hawk though he had a couple of losses on his record was a feared fighter . This just BEFORE Ray was to take on Wilfred The radar benitez, the youngest world champ ever,for the wbc welterweight crown.

Good evening gentlemen. With all due respect it’s really hard for me to get a shot if adrenaline off of this upcoming fight. First and foremost this in my view does not constitute what I would classify as a superfight. Neither,man has anyone very noteworthy on their resume to say that we are about to witness something truly extraordinary. When hearns and Leonard faced off the first time Leonard had just cone off of a career defining fight with Duran the second go around. This just after a true barn burner of a bput with Roberto the first time in Montreal. Hearns for his part, practically DECIMATED the welterweight division in hus way to this YES LEGENDARY showdown. Mayweather beating a B lebek,decent bot ni hoper opponent in Guerrero, GOING THE DISTANCE and Canelo beating a good fighter in Trout but not really producing a scintillating affair ,just does not do it for me. Canelo is a promising young fighter who has the physical tools to be an elite fighter if properly groomed,is still not there just yet. Stamina is one issue he definitely needs to work on. Mayweather fights occasionally and times it just right where the other fellow is eithee a step or two past his prime or the opponent has serious flaws but a NAME to produce a good payday for both. He is a good defensive fighter and he uses it very well to his advantage obviously against lesser talented opposition. He does not take risks simply because he does not want to expose that chin to a potential stunner. This does not make for memorable bouts we can talk about ten years down the road. The undercard looks to be more interesting than the main event. Doesn’t say a lot about the SUPERFIGHT. LIOKING,HECDOG,DONOVAN, HIDALGO ETC.. SHOUT OUT TO YOU ALL , PEACE AND STRENGTH,GOOD HEALTH TO YOU GENTLEMEN. CHEERS.

Squared Circle…. Good point !! I was gonna say, I’ve watched boxing for almost 40 years now, And when a guy thinks he won the fight, and the decision didn’t go his way… He usually flips out, and tells anyone who’ll listen.. Trout did not do that! I don’t know why it’s so hard to swallow for some people! He might have been more active, but , in boxing, there’s a little term called ” Affective aggression” and for the most part, Trouts pitty pat jabs, and arm punches didn’t do anything.

PEEJ: In truth. you’ve demonstrated that you don’t have the ability to judge bouts objectively when fighters from certain “backgrounds” are fighting each other.

Trout openly and honesty admitted that Canelo beat him when put on the spot in the post fight interview. Take his word for it because he was the one in the ring taking those power shots. Pro boxers NEVER admit defeat if they actually believe they won a fight and got robbed. Fact!

What Trout says about it now is absolutely irrelevant — what counts it what he said when was put on the spot right after the fight. And the same goes for EVERY fight.

“Trout out worked him.” in FUTILITY. “Landed more punches” when? please don’t cite punchstat numbers as they are notoriously arbitrary and routinely don’t jibe with what fight-fans saw or even what scorecards score. othewise, i can’t identify a single punch that could be described as “Trout’s best punch of the fight”. also, i’ll agree that ring-generalship captures Canelo’s overall mastery of the bout, but it was his footwork that consistently put him in range to score and out of range of counters and when he wasn’t out of range, Trout was missing combos in bunches of 6-12 punches and more. there was on particular sequence where i stopped counting at 14 missed punches. i have NEVER seen such glaring inaccuracy from a presumably top-notch contender, which Trout is but Canelo was that much better.

Trout is a good fighter and had his moments in the Canelo bout. I had Canelo winning 7 rounds to 5 and picking up the 10-8. If Canelo repeats the same mistakes he when facing Mayweather, he will pay. Mayweather can be like the long-game ping-pong player — they make the game long (distance wise) in order to slow the speed of their opponent and then wait patiently for their opponent to make a mistake. This will be the game Mayweather plays against a very skilled and game and youthful Canelo. Again, I see this bout looking like 8 rounds to 4 without controversy.

Trout out worked him. Lander more punches. Yes he got knocked down but so what. Fighters have been knocked down and gotten up to win. In my opinon Trout one by a round. And footwork does not really matter in a fight. Meaning they don’t judge on footwork. Are you talking about ring generalship?

Posted August 5, 2013 7:38 pm

the threat of Trout began evaporating into thin air immediately following the opening bell. he didn’t land a single significant punch and was missing in combos of six, eight, 10, and 12 punches. Canelo played him like a toy drum and was never stung or stunned to any notable degree. “Shocked” was the word that Trout used to describe the encounter. moreover, NObody is clamoring for a rematch resulting in literally ZERO foundation for any argument describing Trout as a threat to Canelo.

Would you please be so kind as to tell me where I wrote “ Canelo won’t get hit ” ?

You missed the point entirely.

Of course SA will get hit, mostly with jabs and body shots, but FMJ is no KO artist whereas SA has great punching power !
And because one big punch can do more damage than many light punches , SA’s chance to stop FMJ is higher than FMJ’s chance to stop SA.

As for Cotto, I respectfully disagree. In my opinion MC is not faster and he doesn’t have the better jab than SA,
but in my experience, it’s futile to debate on MC / SA, most people disagree with me.

ODH fight was no near close, he hit ODH with any and everything but the kitchen sink, I had money on ODH and lost.

The first great fighter Floyd fought was Zab Judah… The second was DLH… The 3rd was Shane Mosley, who quit fighting in the third round… The last ATG Floyd fought was Miguel Cotto.

They all had major vulnerabilities… but they all gave Floyd problems.

The only thing he has is decent power, but not 1 punch power. Only 1 punch power beating up old and smaller guys. Im going to say it, Canelo is a BUM and should not even be in the same d@M ring as FM.

OLD YANK That makes sense WHY????? Look at YOUR CHERRYPICKER Mayweather HE CAME IN a couple of POUNDS over the weight limit in the MARQUEZ FIGHT. PAID a million or 1/2 million its JUST POCKET CHANGE FOR CHERRYPICKER. As LONG as CHERRYPICKER has SOME KIND OF ADVANTAGE the EDGE.. Makes SENSE. Catch weights CHERRYPICKER LOVES , Cherrypicker ALWAYS fought guys that WERE smaller . OR didnt BELONG in that weight division. YES FLOYD has TALENT SPEED ETC. But HE always had an EDGE. NOT THIS TIME CANELO is a NATURAL 154 pounder young NOT OLD PAST HIS PRIME. Canelo has SKILLS SPEED and a WEIGHT advantage. Lets see the CARDS are NOT stack in his favor First time in his CARREER

toosalty and Old Yank… Corrales didn’t bring a good chin… He didn’t bring a good defense… He didn’t bring speed… He didn’t bring strength… He didn’t bring skill… He didn’t bring ring smarts… He didn’t have punching range … He didn’t have a lot of things that Canelo has.

Was Corrales a good fighter??? He was a damned good brawler.. He couldn’t box worth a damn though.. I know he was 33-0, but he did that by beating the crap out of people with those short arms of his… Punks like Acelino Frietas he just walked down and slammed them — because they couldn’t fight woth a nickle anyway.

I mean… Juan Diaz wasn’t my idea of a good boxer and he beat the trash out of Acelino Frietas without even trying.

Floyd’s resume is damn good. He is the greatest fighter of this generation. He has held a title or championship since his 13 fight. Nobody else has done that. He has outlasted people from his Olympic team and some of the future Olympic teams. He fought all the guys that people wanted him to fight except for Pac. Who of course declined the same type of testing that he is just now starting. Every other fighter that fans wanted him to face became a cherry picked fighter once the contracts where signed

How about a better combination of youth, speed, size, strength, skill, punching range … and punching power???

And let’s face it… Canelo is a much better defender than Oscar, who could never get his face out of the way of a straight punch.

On the other hand Canelo has gone 12 with a super slick and skilled boxer before in Austin Trout … who’s bigger, taller, stronger, and about as hard to hit with a clean shot as Floyd.

Everyone but Floyd haters agrees it wasn’t a sucker punch…

It was Ortiz trying to quit and finding a creative way to do it… Ortiz tried to foul out by launching his head into Floyd’s face… When the referee didn’t DQ him for that he was disappointed. He gave his best effort.

When that didn’t work he took the next 2 shots and played dead.

Ortiz has quit 3 times in fights and I expected something like that. Ortiz wanted to keep kissing — Floyd isn’t in to kissing guys. He likes to punch them.

TOO SMOOTH

@Tark~ Spot on post. If FM had fought Cintron and those other guys you mentioned , his critics would simply state that those guys never beat anyone and FM cherry picked. Just like the Canelo fight. When critics thought the fight would never happen they called FM a coward for not facing a young, strong lion like Canelo, now that the fight is made, Canelo now becomes too young, too green or just not good enough. People may not like his style or his personality but, they no what to expect from FM. He approaches the fight like a surgeon not a lumberjack, hacking and slicing away at will. He is composed and under control at all times during a fight. No one has figured him out. You can’t tell me that every guy that has been put in front of him didn’t what to win or have the determination it took be victorious. Simply put, they didn’t have the skills.

Got all that.. Now, my point- super fights hit man vs hagler, mosely vs hoya, ray vs hitman, jones vs toney, chavez vs meldrick, duran vs ray 1– this is what im sayin these fights were SUPER, they at the peak of their careers took on ther equals, they didnt run, they didnt hide they did it.

Yourdad, Yes, Mayweather KOed Hatton. Congrats on the win as weak as it was. You see, Yourdad- Hatton did hold so much that is was a crime to watch. Mayweather’s style did not give hatton those mid and late rounds to do all the holding that got him to the spot he was. Yourdad, to make it worse for you, Hatton was a joke and was way to small for Floyd, Floyd new that and so did the rest of the world, great cherry pick. I gave you hatton, because hatton was the only undefeated belt holder on floyds weak record.

Aside from Canelo’s strength and youth advantage (advantages at this level capable of capsizing the odds-makers), I think this is an easy bout to pick. Canelo had a very short amateur career (20 bouts I believe). Mayweather had 90 amateur bouts I believe. Although Mayweahter has only fought one more pro bout than Canelo, he has about 100 additional rounds of pro experience — pro experience against names like Castillo, Hatton, Cotto, De La Hoya, Judah, Corrales, Hernandez, and … There is nothing Canelo brings into the ring that Mayweather has not seen before. I will add that Canelo is still in a growth spurt (simple maturing process for a young man). He has likely out-grown 154 and will need to do two things — pass random drug tests and fight at a 2 pound penalty. This is just too easy, unless…

NOPE…. If Pacquiao beats Rios, and Floyd beats Canelo, it’s perfect… Floyd doesn’t wait for Pacquiao to lose another fight.

Everything thing was done — right down to the money split.

It just shows you can’t sit on the best fight ever for 5 years… They got chicken fat all over the fight milking the worldwide publicity to pump their other fights… It was a marketing coup.

So I’ll say this again :

In my humble opinion, we can expect a competitive fight with a tough young fighter coming up, but opinion is deeply divided on this issue.
SA is a smart boxer, he has great boxing skills, punching power, strength, good head and shoulder movement.
Floyd has the advantage of experience, superior defensive skills, incredible hand speed, high boxing IQ and he’s a good body puncher.
I really like SA , but let’s be honest, he’s only chance at defeating FMJ is by stoppage, otherwise FMJ will get the decision. If FMJ wins, he wins by UD, certainly not by stoppage.
Can SA land the big shot ? We’ll see. One thing’s for sure, FMJ has never faced a guy as tough as SA, he’s special.

Yall just hear what others say and repeat garbage without knowing. WHO DID HE RUN FROM?

Posted August 5, 2013 11:09 am 


TARK

An objective analysis of the record doesn’t translate into an easy win for Floyd. Floyd’s admitted best opponent was Miguel Cotto, who tagged Floyd up at times. Those giant Q-Tips, drenched in coagulants and plunged up Floyd’s nostrils, were not an illusion. That happened. Cotto did find Floyd.

Ask yourself, “Who had the most experience between Fast Eddie Chambers and the youthful Thabiso Mchunu?” The answer: “Chambers had 3 times the pro experience—but was completely dominated at long range by a short boxer with a short reach.” Funny thing is, Cotto is short, with a short reach, but was able to find Floyd with his jab. Chambers couldn’t find Mchunu with a jab all night. That tells you skill is more important than experience.

Now Canelo’s toughest and best opponent was the super slick southpaw Austin Trout—who Cotto couldn’t find effectively with his jab, or with anything else. Canelo defended very well, he countered well … and he hit Trout like Trout has never been tagged before … That’s the real world.

if Floyd turns up 80% he still WINS, Canelo better hope he ages overnight, Floyd is as good as ever, his reactions have dropped a nano second but he makes up for this with ring savvy and experience, Unless Canelo is gifted the win(which could easily happen) then its Floyds fight all night long, he only fights people he 100% believes he can beat with no exceptions this time.

Canelo has to step up and make Floyd fight otherwise it’s going to be anothe BORING fight. I’m not too excited about this one. This fight won’t break any PPV records. Gavcia vs Mathysse is a fight and should be the main event. These guys are going to put on a show. Hopefully Canelo can put it all together, use pressure, use the jab and stay on him without gassing out. A Duran/Leonard #1. Floyd Mayweather has pretty much bored a lot of boxing fans to death. He doesn’t bring excitement to boxing. Fans are booing and leaving the arena. Fighters like Manny Pacquiao and Brandon Rios will put on a historic, exciting and explosive fight for fans to remember for years. Boxing needs fighters not guys that hit, hold, hug and bore fans to death like Floyd Mayweather. Hopefully, Canelo can beat him and send into retirement for good.

Duran quit in the middle of a super fight saying, “no mas.” … Hagler put people to sleep sparring Briscoe, Geraldo, and Duranl Hagler was whipped by a welterweight coming off a 3-year layoff … Hearns lost twice to the inept Barkley. Tommy couldn’t avoid that slow loaded right which decked him 3 times … Robinson lost every round to Ralph Jones, about the best fighter he ever fought, but Jones lost his previous 5 fights to guys you never heard of. Pokey and powerless Joey Maxim stopped Robinson. Robinson refused rematches with both of them, proof he didn’t think he could beat them … Leonard got badly whipped by China-Chinned Terry Norris … Chavez received a lot of gift decisions and quit in his corner vs DLH … Jones got flattened twice in a row by guys Roy had been avoiding for years.

Correct,,,, Superfight? Canelo vs Mayweather is not a Superfight. Mayweater ‘s record is blemished with worthlessness, Canelo has a equal number of worthlessness but is on his way up to possibly being somebody. Super fights; Chavez vs Meldrick, Mosely vs Oscar, Hitman vs hagler, Jones vs toney, Duran vs Ray, examples of greatness. Mayweather dont have a one- and the Canelo fight wont be anything.

Correct. I see that Ward sparks your interest also. I do agree that Ward is a very smart business man. IN fact, his management team is spot on when it comes to fooling anyone that he is anybody. Regarding Dawson. Who you fooling, everyone knew it that Dawson is hamburger meat at 168. Dawson is also smart to had taken the fight knowing he had nothing to lose. Dawson would eat ward up at his natural fight weight. Ward’s camp also knew that and refused to move up in weight to take on Dawson.

Floyd is nothing close to that, and that my friend was boxing. Floyd is what every boxer should take note to do to make money. Floyd is a marksman when it comes to keeping his 0, he is a excellent money maker and he has learned how to pick and choose to keep exactly that.

SO those comparisons are invalid HERE. ..He landed a couple of GOOD shots that didn’t even stagger Floyd SO those shots aren’t going to erase Floyd’s overall Defensive performance for 12 rounds just as Mosley’s couple of shots didn’t erase Floyd’s 12 round performance. Floyd defended BETTER over the 12 round match than Trout DID…And Compubox says that I am CORRECT on that.

CORRECTAMUNDO

I don’t go by Compubox. I go by my eyes and then I see IF Compubox supports the FACTS that I saw. I can’t use Compubox when there is a knockout because the Sport is set UP where a knockout TRUMPS everything else….When I analyze the Compubox data I can see that Cotto only landed 2 more jabs vs Mayweather. But he landed 75 more power shots vs Trout. SO Trout Defended vs the jab BETTER by a very small margin but he Defended WORSE vs Power shots by a WIDE margin. In FACT Cotto landed double figures in 10 rounds vs Trout but only landed double figures vs Floyd in 4 rounds. SO Floyd is the BETTER and more consistent Defender than Trout IS….even on a BAD day…..and Canelo will SOON find that out.

Got a better boxing IQ than you. All you can do is insult. And I comment on a lot of threads. If you learn how to read you would see that. And obviously you post under a different name and constantly go to the Floyd comments and post if you say I’m always posting in them. So your lame statement is worthless

Boxtra…, You can’t go by compubox when evaluating whether Floyd or Trout did a better job of defending Cotto’s masterful jab and other slick punches.. Cotto did more damage to Floyd.. His punches were more effective against Floyd.

Therefore the words, “Cleaner and more effective” come in handy. It’s not a number… One punch can do more damage than 320 if it’s like the one Marquez landed on Pacquiao or Martinez landed on Williams.

If Floyd is fighting terrible boxers like Castillo, Gatti, Hatton, Ortiz, and Guerrero, he hit them all the time and won every round… It just so happens Floyd has fought a very limited number of great boxers..

When he fought Cotto and Judah, probably the only great boxers he ever fought, he didn’t hit them as freely and took a few shots himself. If Floyd ever fought guys like Trout, Forrest, Pacquiao, Martinez, or Golovkin, he wouldn’t find them so easy to hit and he would be taking a few..

I would go so far as to say Canelo is the best boxer Floyd has ever faced.. Judah and Cotto are both easier to hit than Canelo, and their hand speed is slower and less potent.. DLH was so easy to hit it was ridiculous.. Oscar’s fight against Pacquiao was a disgrace.. Floyd is not going to be popping Canelo like the popped Oscar … with just about everything he threw.

Contrary to popular belief, Floyd’s Defense was actually BETTER vs Cotto than Trout’s was. Compubox says that I am CORRECT on that.

Logic…., “That style Mchunu used to avoid Chamber’s jabs – he may well have learned it by watching Floyd vs Marquez.”

Mchunu is a green pro… so you might think he’s new. He’s not. He was developing that defense in the amateurs long before Floyd fought Marquez… Let’s face it.. Marquez didn’t have the size and strength to fight as a WW at that point in his career.. Lately he does.

Also McHunu’s defense is only possible because of his small target area, massive shoulder size, slick head movement, and rapid response time with his counters — all of which appear to be better than Floyd’s versus the jab… Maybe Chambers just made McHunu look spectacular defensively, but I’ve never seen anybody that good against a superior jab.

Posted August 4, 2013 10:06 pm 


PEEJ

Ment to say Floyd never lost to Castillo. And I think Floyd can stop Canelo because of his body attack. Canelo has a stamina issue and if he doesn’t fight for at least 2 and half minutes a round against Floyd he has no chance. The mental pressure that Floyd will put on in the ring will tire Canelo out

Posted August 4, 2013 10:02 pm 


logic

Tark,Trout is good,but I didn’t see alot of adjustment from him midfight. If Canelo thinks he’s going to have an easier time hitting Floyd over & over with the same punch then he’s doomed. The style Floyd used against Cotto is one of countless he can use.And like the author says,he is ACCURATE with his counters. That style Mchunu used to avoid Chamber’s jabs – he may well have learned it by watching Floyd vs Marquez. As for cutting off the ring against Floyd, the Mayweather team have made it clear they respect Canelo’s skills,BUT he has the flaw of being flatfooted.Therefore expect the fittest, most mobile Floyd since DLH.

hookoffthejab… Very good points..

After the Floyd fight Mosley looked like he was ready to go out to dinner.

After the Canelo fight Mosley looked like he’d been through WWIII.

And Mosley beat the first title “challenger” for Paulie Malignaggi long after he fought Canelo.

hookoffthejab… Tell me who has “steamrolled” Mosley?? Not Mayweather that’s for sure. Say what you will about Canello, but take a look at Shanes face post fight after the Floyd, and after Alverez… That tells the real story here!

Theres no arguing that Canelo hits harder ….Thats pretty obvious , the fact that Canelo fights in spurts and isnt and all out puncher fighter like Garcia or Lucas 9 who has great timing and underrated skills ) ….IMO points to a Junior WIN Canelo fighting has beens and SMALLER guys is where he has looked his best ……He did not dominate Trout and when he had him hurt his style dictates that your either stationary and against the ropes to be picked off …. Or you dont have the skill to stay off Saul just enough for him to not be able to finish you off ……..

Logic.., “Floyd doesn’t physically have faster reflexes or longer range than Trout”

PLUS the fact that Floyd is shorter, weaker, and easier to hurt than the 171-pound Trout. The punches Canelo lands will do more damage and Canelo will find it easier to jab the orthodox Floyd.. Canelo had to wait on Trout.. He couldn’t afford to tear after AT. The Trout right hook and straight left are very hard to deal with if you run into them … and it’s hard to get your jab on Trout, like Eddie Chambers found it almost impossible to jab super slick southpaw Mchunu.

Canelo should have an easier time pressing and cutting off the ring on Floyd—and when he lands, his punches should do more damage.

logic

It’s true that Cotto did less damage to Trout than to Floyd, but I seem to recall Trout sitting on the ropes daring Cotto to exchange with him but Cotto reluctant to let his hands go. Cotto did not have the reflexes to outhit Trout inside,and historically Cotto goes into “boxer” mode rather than mix it up with a guy who can outlast him in an infight(Margarito,pac,clottey). Whereas he had no fear of an infight with Floyd – because he could afford to take a few of Floyd’s punches in exchange for the heavy damage he could inflict on him,unlike the bigger Trout. So Canelo will force Floyd off the ropes as well(as did DLH),and Floyd will show in the middle of the ring he is a class above Trout in ability to adjust his style,though he doesnt physically have faster reflexes or longer range.

Posted August 4, 2013 8:21 pm 


hookoffthejab

Saul didnt “BEAT” Trout …Canelo fights in spurts and up to now most of his fights have been against has beens and welterweights (also has beens) LOOK AT cANELOS FIGHT WITH mOSLEY WHAT HAPPENED THERE ….If Canelo was ALL THAT he would have steam rolled Shane but he couldnt , because of the way he fights rounds (unless your ALfonz Gomez or the like) Saull puts great combination punchers together but if they dont get you out he backs off ……(gassing ?) Look at his fights with Hatton and Lovemore Ndou …..This is going to be a great fight no doubt , though I can not see Canelo winning other than by KO or early ref stoppage anything past 3/4 its all Junior ……….Canelo will gas out …………

This pundit says…, “If you do the simple Sweet Science math, the more Floyd throws, the more he will land, because he is that accurate.”

Floyd throws when he has a target. When he threw MORE than that—like he did in a couple rounds v Cotto—he got hit more and lost those rounds.

This pundit says…, “Trout was busy, but Canelo found it easier to hit Trout.”

How do you know??? Canelo and Floyd haven’t fought yet—and Trout is a tall, rangy, slick southpaw who’s very difficult to hit… Ask Miguel Cotto.

And Trout HAD to be busier. Trout was losing and had to get back into the fight. But the more Trout threw the more he got hit with hard counter shots. Floyd is not the only masterful counterpuncher in this matchup.

Canelo punched harder and absorbed punches better than Trout.

Trout was more difficult to hit than Floyd—Cotto found Floyd’s face with his smooth, masterful, ATG jabs—zinging them smack up Floyd’s nose.

Cotto couldn’t find Trout’s face with the most masterful jabs he could muster.

Canelo should win this one going away if he is a future great. He has just about every advantage you can think of in this fight. To be a great these are the of fights you got a win against smaller past thier prime opposition

Posted August 4, 2013 6:45 pm 


logic

If Canelo’s stamina is as bad as people say, I don’t see how he could play the pressure game 12 rounds like Guerrero.Guerrero is maybe superior to Canelo in stamina & toughness, maybe ability to adjust,and has southpaw advantage. I think Canelo has better handspeed,defense,power,versatility and comes in with an intelligent gameplan. So maybe Canelo needs to pressure some rounds,and use his defense other rounds. (You can’t have just one plan against Mayweather anyway.As you see he figured out Mosley,Hatton,Judah etc in a couple of rounds, whereas the more versatile guys like DLH & Cotto were able to stage mini-comebacks at later stages).

Thx 65. Yep it a politics game for sure. I believe Canelo needs a KO to win. Without the KO, they going to hand this thing to Mayweather, who will do exactly what he has been doing for 15 years; lemmon pick or if he believes their is a chance he will lose, throw out the steroid excuse or heck, sucker punch.

Logic dictates that Mayweather wins this based on experience . Given not so much Mayweathers performance against a b level fighter in Guerrero, more so Canelo fighting a somewhat pedestrian fight with Trout my logical mind,says Mayweather. Yet,my guts are telling me that e everyone will be in for a suprise come fight night. I see Canelo scoring a ko in a shocker much in the same fashion that Tarver shocked Jones. Just a feeling. White boys? Was that really necessary? REALLY?

Floyd ONLY throw’s when he needs to and when he thinks he will land, if he throws more he will miss more and leave himself open to Canelo’s counters,he’s sharp on the counter, if the machine isn’t broke don’t fix it.

Posted August 4, 2013 4:01 pm 


Greylo

I like both fighters, but would love to see someone challenge Floyd’s record. Castillo is the only person who I think beat Floyd.
The Canelo/Trout fight was a struggle for Canelo. He caught Trout with some shots and Trout got chin checked, but he came back to be competitive. Floyd is hard to land combos on and he has thus far shown he has a good beard. I guess this is the best shot Canelo is going to have though against an aging Mayweather. We’ll just have to see how Canelo’s stamina and work rate are going to be in this fight, he’s going to have to be very busy, not like the Trout fight, and catch Floyd with some big shots. Floyd makes people miss but he’s been hit with some big shots before.

Floyd will not go home with the 0, the only chance IMO that Canelo has is landing a big shot and following it up with the finnish. Canelo does not have the stamina for that. Floyd will cautiously win one round at a time by making Canelo miss and outpointing him.

Mayweather; first test.. lost to castilllo, fights worth anything; hatton who was undefeated at the time- everyone else- worthless outside corrales. Canelo, strong stand against his last which could had gone either way, should had been a draw. The politics, does the powers to be need a new project; Canelo? who is worth more money because thats where the chips lay. Do they give a close fight to mayweather who is going to do what he does run, hold, pop shot, hold run or Canelo who will most likely put the pressure on. Who knows, but if they take away the armlocking away from Mayweather who continues to hit and hold, then he is done.

It takes 2 to hold. If one is tring to hold you still have your hands free and can start swinging. If that happens then the red will take points away for holding

Posted August 4, 2013 1:33 pm 


boxing barlow

The reason that you dont see anyone going to the body when Floyds on the rope is because Floyd just goes into a clinch with his opponent forcing the ref to split them up and this puts the fighters back out at range. Going into the Hatton fight I actaully felt Mayweather was going into his most risky fight. I felt Hatton would just barge Floyd onto the ropes and hit him with damaging body shots. How was Floyd going to handle that? It became apparent straight away that it would be purely through holding. Hatton came in got hit, tried to go to the body, but Floyd just pulled him into a clinch. Simple but effective. I actauuly beleive that had that fight have happened in the UK a few years earlier, at light welter, a UK ref would have penalised Mayweather for holding forcing him to fight on the inside on the ropes, and Hattons crunching body shot may have won him the fight. But hey ho Mayweather deserved the victory on the night. Canelo will find the same problem if he starts on the body while Floyds on the ropes.
