That’s wha amazes me… People saying Castillo had the blueprint… And he’s the only guy who got a 2nd shot at Floyd — and he lost every round of the rematch.

If there was a blueprint to beat FM don’t you think Castillo would have won the rematch…?

FMJ’s legs will grow old during this match and his body will take more punishment than he has ever before…from a proven strong, quick and hard punching, experienced young confident boxer. This script is an oldie but goodie in the world of boxing. All of the past so-called great fighters have faced this type of opponent, at that closing time of their career. FMJ has cleverly, been that opponent to a handful of proven yet exiting…

Floyd adjusts to what you’re successful at doing.. He did vs Mosley, Judah, and Cotto.. You really can’t beat him with strategy for more than a round or 2.. You have to outbox him over 12 rounds.. You need to be really good and masterful and put 7 rounds in the bank..

Make that 10 rounds. He gets close rounds just for being the GOAT

And this is a discussion why??? What credibility is there in calling a fight a “blueprint” when Mayweather fought with a serious injury. Thats like claiming a team who beats the Broncos as having the blueprint, yet Manning got hurt in the second quarter. Thats just dumb…AND to add insult to injury, Mayweather, when he was back at 100%, won by an even larger margin in the rematch. So again, where is the blueprint???

@junior if you think Mayweather dominated that fight your crazy he would there is no way that fight between him and cotto was 10-rds 2 in favor of Mayweather cotto won at least 4 rds maybe 5 and manage to bloody his nose Mayweather is seemed to be unbeatable so he I think Canelo would need to train a year to beat Mayweather.

The key with Mayweather is to commit to the body and throw a lot of punches. One, two, even three punches at a time Floyd will always have a superior answer for. You have to double and triple up on the jab alone and then put the power punches behind it. Put him on his back foot. Hes not unbeatable, hes just really freakin good. Not the first guy at that level. Unfortunately, Canelo is just good. Canelo just happens to be very overratted too and people are giving him chance based on a weak undefeated record.

The blueprint was no longer valid once the fight was over. In the rematch Floyd showed who was the superior fighter. That blueprint was no longer valid.

the blueprint is to do what you do best, protect yourself at all times, respect your opponent but don’t fear him, most fight plans change during the course of a fight so you have to be able to adapt…..all slick fighters have gotten their first loss to a high output good chinned fighter, Ali, Leonard, Robinson etc…..btw the scores for the first Castillo fight were even more in favor of May than the second fight…

A lot of fighters have tried the “Castillo Blueprint” and the result has been the same: a Mayweather victory. IMO there’s no blueprint. You have to mix up your attack and fight the perfect fight. Canelo will have to employ a sustained attack to the body, a snapping jab (not a range finder), and he’ll to throw punches in combination. Sounds easy, but it won’t be. Mayweather’s defense is the best in the game, so Canelo will need some intangible luck as well.

Slater is using an OLD, TIRED thesis that has yielded 0 dividends, the so called blueprint maker had 2x to use his awesome creation and has 2 losses on his record for his trouble.. Floyd Mayweather might lose eventually to a BIG punch or old age eroding his skills..But Canelos not the man for the job..

Ahhh we are back to the ESB screen name borrowers playing children’s games.. There is no PROVEN “Blueprint” for beating Mayweather… Of course he can lose this is boxing but to sell that Castillo fight as “a can’t miss methodology” is ridiculous… More proven fighters than Canelo have tried to implement and LOST… Alvarez has a punchers chance just like the rest, he’s not out boxing Floyd Mayweather..He’s too slow and Floyds too special..

So let me get this straight since then Floyd hasn’t improved?

Posted September 10, 2013 7:22 am

If Canelo thinks he can counter Floyd all night long he’s going to see how fast Floyd hits the target and reset at the same time. The only reason Cotto got to Floyd was because Floyd wanted to please the fans but as you can see in the Guerrero fight he went back to sticking and moving. Now, how Canelo is ever going to stop Floyd from doing this to him without exerting a lot of pressure thus losing a lot of steam is left to be seen. My guess though, is that he will be outgunned and frustrated and end up letting Floyd control the pace. SD or UD for Floyd.

Posted September 10, 2013 4:32 am 


david d.

First of all, James, Baldomir is an Argentinean. And he was 34 years old, with a hard fought record of 43-9-6, when he lost by decision to FMJ (36-0) in 2006. On the otherhand, Canelo ( 33-0-1) defeated Baldomir, 38 years old, in 2010, by KO in the 6th round. Not sure what your point was?

And the so-called “blue print” to defeat FMJ, it was exposed by a Puerto Rican, named Cotto. Yes, I know Cotto lost that fight with FMJ, however, when Cotto would box and stay out of FMJ’s range and move laterally, making him come forward and commit, Floyd would over extend his punches, causing him to be off balance and out of counter position. Now, I know Cotto didn’t take advantage of this, his legs were gone during that match ( first thing to go, hint hint ) as they were in the Trout bout…which brings me to the Trout vs Canelo match. Canelo made Trout, the bigger and stronger fighter, come to him, thus taking away his balance and leverage, and stayed at the outside of his punches. Hence, making Trout miss and over extend.

There is the “blue print” that I believe, Canelo will use to defeat FMJ.

If this goes 12 and I fully expect it to do so then Mayweather has to win LARGE in my humble opinion because I have a feeling this could be the night Mayweather is on the end of a controversal scoring. money money money, if Mayweather gets beat and even by a controversal decision can you imagine what a rematch would generate?

Posted September 10, 2013 12:38 am

IMO there is actually a blue print to beating Mayweather but not bullying in and going to the body like Castillo did years ago. Floyd’s greatest asset is his ability to adjust and as you see Castillo had no luck with his own “blue print” in the 2nd fight with Mayweather. Nor has anyone else who tried to emulate Castillo’s strategy (i.e. Hatton). The blue print was actually laid down by Zab Judah (who actually knocked Mayweather down but didn’t get credit for it ) and Demarcus Corley who badly wobbled Mayweather). What Chop Chop and Judah had in common was they were both south paws with fast hands and good technique. Judah was actually winning early and then faded which is his norm. Corley was just too easy to hit at that point of his career. So based on this formula who has the best chance of beating Mayweather? The answer is either Pacquiao if he can go back to tightening up his defence and believe it or not Devon Alexander. Alexander may not be an all time great but styles make fights. After all who thinks Iran Barkley was a greater pound for pound fighter than Thomas Hearns?

Castillo totally won the first fight by 2-3 rounds.

But FLoyd was injured, and he showed as much by how he dealt with Castillo in the rematch.

This “Castillo blueprint” thing is a t.u.r.d that should have been flushed long ago.

My solution is to mix the Judah and Ortiz approach – go for the low blow AND the headbutt. Classic double attack combo – nuts and noodle.

You might get disqualified, but you`d never have to buy another drink again in your life.

IMO Castillo won the 1st fight with Floyd. I also think that Oscar did nothing and that it wasn’t a close fight at all. However, I do agree that I see this fight Saturday as a PPV version of the Baldamir fight.

Limey Jay… When Cotto quit against Cheato he pretty much knew there was something weird going on.. Nobody hurts you with grazing shots, and the shots that were landing solid were killing him.. The punches weren’t knocking him out, just landing like cement block.. No wonder Cheato could afford to take 2 to land one.. He was smashing people before he got caught.

If you watch his fight with Sergio Martinez.. that fight looked really curious as well.. I’ll bet he was loading for a long time.

The Mayweather of that fight exists no more. If there had been a blueprint iit’s an old blueprint as Mayweather has evolved into who he is today. But let’s say that there was an actual blueprint to beat Mayweather. It’s much easier said than done. Some fighters are not capable of carrying out the plan. Because Castillo may have come close it doesn’t mean that someone else will do the same. How do you explain all that tried and failed. If it were so easy Mayweather would have been defeated a long time ago. We just need to wait until Saturday. Oscar may have come close, but very few are as good as Oscar was.

I,d rather be in oscars shoes than Ali,s right now.
Ones living it large earning millions having fun, getting laid, getting drunk , dressing up in fishnets and heels, and generally smacking the firm plump backside of that ting called life.
The other needs help taking a piss.
Before I,m accused of being disrespectful of Ali, that couldn,t be further from the truth, the man is , well we all know what Ali is, he is a legend.
The point I,m trying to make is that there is far more to life than boxing, choosing to give up in a fight, to quit on your stool, take a knee and not get back to your feet when physically you could is the smart thing to do.
I get that don’t sit right with some fans who , it seems demand more from their fighters…like brain damage, blindness, slurred speech ….or even death.
I myself feel there’s nothing wrong in making a decision which allows you to fight another day, Or never again if that’s the choice you make.
When cotto quit against margo…..he got some flak from some on this here site.
I couldn,t wrap my head around it, what did these people want…..to witness a death, or cotto being brain damaged , so that they could write how tragic it all is for his poor wife and kids.
It’s pretty easy to write about courage, the will to win against all odds, to fight to the death
But I guess it’s a lot harder to put it into practice.
I guess you are different boxtradamus, being the greatest fight prophet ever born and all that, you would probably have just bit down on your gum shield, and thought of ma and pa back home, and Mary Jane rottencrutch waiting with outstretched arms, and found that extra something to help you win the fight………..and then you woke up and realised it aint Mary Jane licking your balls right now , it’s the hobo,s dog,.
and you didn,t win the fight , you lost ,and suffered severe brain damage….and now sit in an adapted wheelchair all day writing about how great you are on various different boxing forums, in heavily soiled underpants….wishing, just wishing you had one of them flashy wheelchairs that Stephen Hawkins has got, but you can’t afford it because Mary Jane has got all your cash ,and is being serviced by Oscar , dressed as marylyn Monroe as we speak.
Life can be a cruel mistress….lol.

flash knock down

Floyd has gotten so much better sense he fought Oscar who in my opinion gave him his toughest fight. If this is what all these other trainers have been trying to do is come up with a blue print to beat Floyd . No wonder they have all failed and will fail. The only way anyone is going to be able to beat Floyd is if they can read minds. Floyd is on a whole different level when it comes to fighting . Floyd sees things that no one else sees while he is standing in front of a fighter. Floyd sees things when he looks at film of other fighters that no one else sees. The amount pressure that Floyd puts on a guy standing in front of him is tremendous . I was a fighter and I am now a really good trainer. Everyone is looking at the physical assets of Floyd that is not it . It’s how he thinks and proses information that no one has been able to deal with. Floyd also has two great trainers in his corner they are always making adjustment’s for Floyd. To beat Floyd number one you are going to have to be in better shape than him physically . The second thing is you are going to have to sell out in every round , every minute, every second.You are going to have to have real speed and be able to take a punch . The last thing you are going to have to be really better than him. Canelo is none of these. Canelo will get TKO or knockedout . I believe that Canelo’s people will stop the fight when they see that Canelo is being totally out classed.I read a lot of you guys comments and you know nothing about boxing.

I saw a reply of the Maywetaher/ Guerra fight and a few times Guerra barely

This pundit continually fabricates statistics to back his erroneous claims.

The scores Slater presents—to misrepresent the fight closeness—are completely bogus… Floyd won the fight by a wide margin: 116-111… 115-111 and 115-111… Floyd won by 4 or 5 points on ALL CARDS. Slater picked the scores he presented in this article out of his fuzzy head.

What’s often forgotten is Floyd fought Castillo TWICE—and all six judges voted for Floyd.

For the 2nd Mayweather-Castillo fight a hit-team of corrupt judges was positioned to rob Floyd. Floyd won every round of the 2nd fight … but.

Ken Morita was one of the assigned Mayweather-Castillo II judges.

Ken Morita judged the Mike Tyson-Buster Douglas fight—and had Tyson beating Douglas when that fight ended—even though Tyson lost 8 of the 9 previous rounds by wide margins before he got knocked out. His scorecard got a lot of commentary because of how unbelievable it was. As part of the hit-team of judges Morita scored Mayweather-Castillo II, 115-113 for Floyd.

There was no possible way even Morita would give Castillo that fight. Castillo’s corner was telling him he was behind. The commentators said the scorecards were ridiculous. Floyd smiled and shook his head in disbelief.

iamlegndary_j

Alright, there are a few things that I view when I look at this fight. Canelo is not Castillo. Castillo used his pure strength against the smaller fighters, leaning on them etc., to cause fatigue. Canelo doesn’t do that, as he himself usually gases out in the middle rounds. He does a great job of imposing his size on smaller fighters, that simply because those fighters aren’t on his level. Second, it was openly stated that Mayweather was dealing with an injury during the Castillo fight, which clearly prohibited him from fighting at the 100% which he’s accustom too. Third, the second fight in which Mayweather was 100%, offered a much clearer verdict, w/o any contraversy. Castillo was quite bloodied after the second encounter. Fourth, Castillo’s competition overshadowed that of Mayweather and Canelo’s at the time. Castillo had fought mad competition by the time he encountered Mayweather and it was safe to say that Castillo was Mayweather’s toughets competition at the time. People like to mention that De La Hoya had success against Mayweather, and why wouldn’t he? DLH is a future Hall of Famer, with countless championship rounds under his belt, plus he had the height and weight advantage on his side and the advantage of having fought at 154 for many years. That was Floyd’s first fight at 154 against a guy who had fought there for several years. What competition has Canelo faced that would garner him any chances, beyond a punchers chance of actually defeating Mayweather? Canelo is a great combination puncher against stationary targets. Anyone who knows boxing, knows that Mayweather isn’t a stationary target. Against guys his size, Cotto, Mosley, Judah, Corley, he was the aggressor but against the guys who outweighed him, Baldomir, DLH and Corrales, Mayweather moved continiously. It’s not hard to notice if you actually know something about boxing. This will be an easy match for Mayweather. Canelo had difficulties landing combinations on Trout, and no disrespect to Austin, he’s no where near the defensive genuis that Mayweather is. The movement, plus Trouts size bothered Alavarez and he fought in spurts. I think he was forced to fight at a pace that he wasn’t comfortable fight at, plus he was foreced to move more than usual. At times Trout had Alvarez backing up, but yet Mayweather is in danger of losing to this guy? Really? I take nothing away from Canelo, but he’s biting off more than he can chew at this moment. I don’t see a close fight, or even a remotely competitive fight. After four rounds, the look of confusion and defeat will appear upon Canelo’s face, just as it has every other Mayweather opponent. 09/14/13, mark my words. jsimms601@gmail.com….twitter/@iamlegndary_j

even if Castillo did legitimately outhustle and outscore Mayweather for an unofficial win, what happened in the rematch? besides a comfortable win that bolstered Mayweather’s claim of being handicapped by an injury in their first bout. all things being equal, that’s what rematches are for. to correct prior grievances with a display of superior talent, skills, and/or heart for a convincing win. although some fighters (e.g., Judah, Trinidud, Punkuiao*) are notorious for sheepishly or cynically avoiding red-hot rematches v. previous opponents (e.g., Mathysse, DLH, Marquez), Mayweather can’t be counted among them. the only time that Mayweather collected a controversial win, he didn’t hesitate to confirm the rematch and re-emphasize his superiority v. a determined and forewarned Castillo. in fact, his rematch win was so convincing that there was no demand for a rubbermatch. that’s when you know the superior fighter has proven his point and redeemed a previous loss or controversial win.

Boxtradamus

“Oscar had a great blue print on how to beat Floyd, and he would have won the fight had he not run out of gas”-Well then you mean that IF he weren’t human he would have WON and YOU agree with ME on that!!! Because all human FACES run out of gas when out punched by almost 100 shots. And when your FACE runs out of gas its either wise UP and stop exposing yourself by punching or get stopped by your opponent . Margarito chose to keep punching and thats why he got MOLLYWOPPED to end his career. Oscar chose to quit on his stool which is pretty pitiful. A guy like Ali would rather be KILLED than quit on his stool. Holmes agrees with ME on that.

Nope. Unless someone can invent a time machine where Canelo can go back and face THAT Mayweather instead of THIS Mayweather WHO is MUCH WISER. Also they’d have to go back in time to change the scorecards SO that Castillo’s gameplan would actually get a WINNING result.

Oscar had a great blue print on how to beat Floyd, and he would have won the fight had he not run out of gas. Oscar was past his prime and wasn’t nearly the same fighter but was popping Floyd with jabs and stayed busy, volume punching at times. You have to have speed and and a good jab to beat Floyd. Canelo needs to have a little of Castillo and Oscar in him to have any chance of beating Floyd. Most of all, IMO, he better have enough stamina and endurance to finish and dig down a little in the last 4 rounds of the fight. If Canelo gasses out, he’s done. Floyd hasn’t been forced to fight a tough grueling fight, and when he did (vs Cotto) for a few rounds, he was getting hit and tiring a bit. Once gain, he was fighting a past prime Cotto. The plan is there for Canelo to win this fight, but it’s all up to Canelo. Canelo has youth, power and the backing of the pro Canelo crowd. The only thing that’s left is for Canelo to answer the following: Can he handle the pressure of this big fight? Does he have enough hand and foot speed to match Floyd? Does he have the stamina? Can he take a punch? Can he make adjustments and remain patient? Can he land a solid punch on Floyd? These are the questions Canelo must answer YES to or he’s going to be in trouble.

I think Mayweather will win. Unanimous Decision.

I hope Canelo and his team aren’t dumb enough to try the Castillo blueprint, he would gas the same way Hernandez gas by the 6th round. He definitely isn’t facing a young Mayweather but he also isn’t facing an inexperience or injured one neither.
