This is really simple ……. so pay close attention. The winner? The winner will be determined by the third man in the ring. There needs to be control over Floyd’s relentless arm holding. Take the holding away and bye bye bye Floyd,,,,,,,,,,,,, lights out

Still going with the underdog Alvarez. I believe he’s too young strong powerful and determined for Mayweather who at 36 has brittle hands. He last injured his right hand in the Guerrero fight last May. Alvarez also a sharp accurate jab that Mayweather is vulnerable to and a fast heavy right hand. If he keeps his jab on Mayweather and counters Mayweather’s pot shots and counters punches he will wear Mayweather down, and it’s game over.

One notable boxer thinks everyone is on it. That you can’t compete without it in today’s era? Is he right?
I don’t know.

We do know people are willing to risk a lot for a lot of money.

All are suspect. Sadly that is horrible for the clean athlete.

The USADA and Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. has been accused of failing three separate drug tests and testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs). Although he has lodged multiple accusations against Manny Pacquiao for allegedly using PEDs, Mayweather has always denied any claims that he relies on doping to stay in shape. Pacquiao and Mayweather recently settled a defamation lawsuit stemming from Floyd’s accusations.

Reports claim that Floyd Mayweather Jr. failed three drug tests, but the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) allowed him to have a waiver. He never faced any charges or consequences for the positive tests. There have been no specific details about the drugs available, but they have been identified as PEDs. Allegations that the USADA allowed Mayweather to get away with doping have become prominent.

Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s Silence

Although he has been quick to accuse others of taking PEDs, Floyd Mayweather Jr. is not responding to the rumors focused on him. In the past, Mayweather has suggested that a fight with Pacquiao was being delayed by his refusal to take Olympic-style drug testing. Manny Pacquiao has denied these reports and has recently settled a defamation lawsuit.

VULCAN, PLEASE SUPPLY more evidence…..

My view on cheating in boxing is ONE STRIKE and you are out, no matter who the individual or team….. Criminal charges should follow, like we had n the case of MARION JONES because boxing is the hurt business, IMHO depending on what banned substances/ medication the individual has taken this could lead to the maiming or death of another boxer…..

MARGARITO should have been banned for life along with RESTO and PANAMA LEWIS….. The British boxer LARRY OLUBAMIWO (sorry about spelling) should have been banned for life and many more involved in BALCO and others like CHAVEZ JNR and the Texas Commissin should have been censured for both failing to provide a sample both pre and post-fight and aiding a boxer in Texas Commissions case to fail to produce a sample.

it’s time to get tough on all boxers….

Please, provide the proof and help boxing to clean up is act……

TO THE MODS—- NO, I AM NOT POSTING COMMENTS TOO QUICKLY!!!!K!

What other media picked up on it? Also, is USADA the one performing testing out of comp? If so has the media gotten them to answer queries on the record? Someone mentioned NSAC confirmed no postive tests but that’s only post-fight. They’re not involved with the testing during camp, which would be the tests in question.

Floyd has not been accused. That is someones opinion. That is all hear say. Nevada has already said Floyd has never failed a test. You are reading an article that I also ready. He says he is not accusing he is just laying out what he heard. There for he has a theory. Not every theory is true. That is why it is a theory, you have to prove it to make it fact which he can’t do.

Name me a great fighter Floyd Mayweather beat in his prime?

Not a spent force once great fighter.

Not a midget from two weight divisions below.

We know that he ducks great fighters when they’re at their best.

Hell he even ducked merely very good fighters when they were at their best.

And now he’s decided to fool you all again by taking on Alvarez before he learns to walk.

Making him fight at a catchweight after saying 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.”

Once a fraud and a coward, always a fraud and a coward.

powerhands

I believe canelo is going to try to beat Floyd at his own game. I think he is going to try to jab with Floyd. At the same time not backing up. Looking to connect big off of counters, because he knows that he is younger, stronger, and has the speed. But Canelo is too flat footed, which will make it more easier for Floyd to pick up on his game plan. The only way I see a good chance for Canelo is to be patient and allow Floyd to come at him. Slowly bait him in because Floyd wont bite fast. We all know that the straight right only comes when Floyd is not in his Philly style. Over all. Timing would be the key for alverez. With combinations. Does he have the wind to do it? I don’t know. I pick Floyd to win by tko if he doesnt hurt his hand. His arms, and legs are unbelievably fast, and sharp. Canelo will end up being lost. Nice kid. But he is not ready. He tricked trout with a totally different game plan to make us all believe that he is ready.

Unless I was a bookie in which case I`d say FLoyd 60%, Canelo 20%, draw 2.5% and a nice 17.5% hole for me that I`d shift around as betting comes in.

I’m also interested in the Fight that no one is talking about Smith vs Molina. Molina is no CHUMP. Ishe isn’t GREAT but he’s rubbing shoulders with the BEST. He’ll continue to get BETTER. Should be a GOOD competitive Championship Fight.

Posted September 5, 2013 9:35 pm 


Papo

I think the fight to watch is Garcia-Matthysse, as Floyd-Canelo promises to be a boring fight. Floyd will win due to his superior boxing skills and defense, but it’s going to be Canelo chasing Floyd and Floyd counterpunching and moving about the ring. There might be one or two exciting rounds, but that’s about it.

However, both Danny Garcia and Lucas Matthysse like to fight and will be exchanging some really hard punches. This fight could go either way, but I pick Danny as he always finds a way to win. But one thing for sure, there’s going to be some fireworks on this one. Someone is going down.

Jonn E JaGozza:

I think its more about age with Floyd at this point than style. He never relied on one specific style. His style was a mixture of a few different types and would just hone in on one specific one for what the fight and opponent called for but could always adjust as the fight went on. Add that to his incredible athleticsm, speed, agility, and reflexes in his youth, that was trouble for just about everyone.

The style or type of fighter I do think would have caused his problems even at his best is what Roger Mayweather pointed to…TALL SKILLED FIGHTERS WITH A GREAT JAB, POWER, AND TIMING LIKE VERNON FORREST. Tommy Hearns of course.

As he gets older, and going back way back to fighters like Marciano and Patterson and many others who they fought, like Moore, Charles, Walcott, etc…it is all about forcing the pace on the older fighter to wear them down in the later rounds.

Floyd is still 36 years old. His punch-out-put is no longer high. It hasn’t been for some time. He isn’t quite as fast and agile anymore either. But he sure is the smartest of them all. But Canelo is a smart fighter. And unlike JMM who needs you to come to him, Canelo can go to you just like Castillo did except Canelo is even bigger. But he doesn’t have Castillos experience. But sometimes experience can hold you back from bravery and naivety that you may need going up against someone like Floyd who can mentally manipulate you.

Canelo has a solid shot. Better than Cotto did.

Maybe a few exciting moments early but most likely PBF will suck it up and hold/shoulder roll his way to a comfy UD, by 3-4 rounds.

I go for quite a clean UD, Floyd by 4 rounds.

It`ll look close 2/3rd of the way through, but Floyd will take the majority of the final rounds.

Posted September 5, 2013 5:50 pm

After watching Canelo’s last three fights on tape, I have to go with Mayweather. Canelo isn’t a fluid boxer, and you can see every punch he throws. He loves that long wide left hook, and he can throw a solid jab, but he’s not consistent enough. His style has some similarities to Floyd’s because he is a counter puncher also. He’s just not fast or fluid enough to beat Mayweather unless he catches him during an exchange or Floyd gets old over night. Floyd should be able to get in and out and run or move away quickly. Canelo also has stamina issues, which can get him knocked out if he runs out of gas. GBP and Mayweather Promotions are doing a great job selling this fight, but it’s not a great fight between to evenly skilled fighters. Canelo hasn’t fought anyone. He’s 23 yrs of age with an unbeaten record that does not impress. The Media and Oscar are riling up all the Mexican and latino fans so they can come and pay their hard earned money. The next great Mexican fighter is The One. Canelo is also has a bit of an over sized ego fed to him by his singing trainer. I do hope Canelo some how finds a way to beat Floyd because Floyd is becoming way too dull and predictable. He says the same things over and over. Talks about his money. His cars, his uncle Roger, his father, his gym, jumping rope, same old mitt routine, actually, Floyd has become very boring and stagnant. I do respect the way he shows his kid and how much he loves them. The scandalous women he has have to go. They’re all out for his money and fame. Canelo does have youth and power and the largely Mexican audience, so there’s always that possibility he can pull it off, but it’s going to be tough.

I assume that this fight couldn’t be for the 154lb titles as FMJ punked out at a catchweight. What other advantages has FMJ employed to pretend he is taking on the best at their best. Canelo will need a KO to win, FMJ has deep pockets as we have seen in the past with his losses to De la Hoya and Castillo. Why do all of you always bring race into this? Like the fight for the marketed hype it brings and leave that other crap at the door. FMJ fans continue to play the race card, typical.

Mayweather by UD – I know that anything can happen but overall there really is NO suspense to this match up – Alvarez at this point is just not experienced-seasoned enough – It also doesn’t help that he is much more robotic than Mayweather.
