Mayweather could fight on a bin lid and still win, I was knocker of Mayweather but in taking a fight against a dangerous fighter like Canelo and completely school him put any doubts I had to rest, Canelo, Cotto, Marquez, Gurrero, Hatton all dangerous”A” level fighters beaten by him I have no doubt that he is easily the best of this Gen and one of the ATGs, power does not worry him, aggression does not worry him. I only see two fight left for him , GGG for his ring smarts not his power and PAC for his speed and angles

Chisora should be kept in a cage.

he doesnt need to go anywhere and no one is worthy. let him shadowbox himself on PPV for $99. would break records.

Mayweather should fight frankie Gavin in London not amir khan plz. Or put a show down with frankie vs amir in a fight to get at mayweather Jr in 2014 in da UK. And mayweather vs Bradley would be big too. GGG vs Qullin at 160, Ward vs Edwin at 168 and Sakio vs Arthur at 168 would b great matchup. Make it happen.

I always respect your opinions:

BUT, REMEMBER HITLER was one of the most charismatic and brilliant orators around and used the press, media etc. to gain power and sway over a nation, before doing unspeakable crimes against humanity.

TBH some of the most evil men in the history of our world have also been the most charismatic….

Something to think about.

Re ROGER MAYWEATHER… I suggest you have a conversation or two with him about boxing before you make up your mind about him. Roger knows his stuff about the history of boxing. That is the stone cold truth.

Whether you like him or not is another matter.

TBH some of the boxers etc people are hero worshipping are absolute douches in real life…. Whilst other’s who are pilloried would give you their last dime…. It’s weird how many people are suckered into the public persona of some people…..

At least meet them first before you make up your own minds!!!!

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

You WROTE:

If B-Hop or Ward can make 160lbs, 3G will DEFINITELY fight them and destroy them. What a HUGE double standard from you idiotic fools. You fan-boyz are so afraid of FMJ having to fight 3G that it’s HILARIOUS! I can literally smell your FEAR. What are you so scared of if FMJ is truly the “greatest of his generation???”

IT HAS BEEN REPORTED WIDELY THAT B-HOP wishes to drop down to as low as 147 to face MONEY MAY next year….

I suggest the better match is for B-Hop to drop to his true fighting weight of 168lbs and face GGG like he did Pavlik….. This is fair as both men will be bridging a gap of 7 to 8 pounds for this match up…..

This match could be the chief support on FLOYD’s next PPV and would introduce GGG to the whole at large…. I believe I wrote this on another thread yesterday or the day before…

Hey Ray, instead of fighting blueprints to lose, Floyd needs to listen to fans and fight guys while they’re both hot and proved. That or let these hisses and boos haunt him while he snooze.

…and the fan plan to GOATness is for him fighting the best from 140 to 154 before his last six fight contract is up, which can be at least partly determined via him fighting Garcia at 140, and the winner of Molina and Golovkin at 154.

Money talks so make it happen. Heck with hoarders like Espinoza, Greenberg, Scheafer, Hershman, Hayman who are just hyping him like Hanna Montana.

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

“Like it or not GGG has no cash value compared 2 Sergio. If Floyd does step up again it will b vs Martinez not GGG.”

Actually, Maravilla does NOT have a very big following that would equate to big PPV sales. Meanwhile 3G has an ongoing contract with HBO, is fighting every 3-4 months, and is BLOWING UP all over the world. After another fight or two on HBO he will bring every bit as money to the table as Martinez. So for FMJ to say, 3G doesn’t bring enough money is just a B.S. excuse to duck.

Secondly, does NOT have to step up to fight 3G. All he has to do is defend his 3 MAJOR 154lbs titles now that he’s the lineal, Ring Jr. MW of the Word.
3G will drop down to 154lbs and fight FMJ at his own weight class.

Maravilla is a natural 154lbs fighter and just stepped up to MW a few years ago. He’s been begging for FMJ to fight him at 154lbs for years, and FMJ has always ducked. So you’re saying that FMJ might fight Sergio, now that he’s almost 40, injury-ridden, and doesn’t pose nearly the threat that 3G does. 3G is the most avoided and ducked fighter in boxing and has been for about two years. That’s a FACT! Man up FMJ, and fight 3G at 154lbs!!! PROVE that your the greatest of your generation without anymore B.S. excuses.

ggg was 158½ lbs against lajuan simon, simon had never been stopped or off his feet before, going the 12 round distance against prime mw banger arthur abraham, ibf champ sebastian sylvester, who despite his not too impressive ko percentage could bang a bit, columbian banger dionisio miranda who hurt peter quillin, and dangerous journeyman darnell boone who ko’d adonis stevenson in 2, floored and badly hurt andre ward, and dropped sergey kovalev

2 minutes into the first round and one exquisite lethal left uppercut later simon is laying flat on his back wondering what the hell had just happened, unable to pick himself off the canvas, simultaneously suffering both the first knockdown and knockout loss of his career.

GGG would knock Ward out… Ward will have a fairly tough time with Edwin Rodriquez.. He’s the first good boxer Andre will have ever faced, and it’s about time.

GGG hasn’t faced any good boxers either… But it’s not because he isn’t deserving — or interested in fighting Martinez or Quillin.. They’re the ones ducking the matchups because they’ll end up on their faces.

Posted September 19, 2013 1:05 am

Floyd has avoided the best in each weight since he fought Castillo so he has a lot to prove. So let him fight the best at 154 such as Lara or Molina or GGG or go down and fight Garcia at 140

Like it or not GGG has no cash value compared 2 Sergio. If Floyd does step up again it will b vs Martinez not GGG. Answer me this. What weight did Floyd start at? He has nothing 2 prove by stepping up again…..If he does Sergio will bring in way more cash than a fight with GGG. U don’t have 2 like it but its the truth…Ward would spank GGG

Lol b red. Stop it. Squared circle knows plenty trust me. However I’m gonna say this while I got him here, wasn’t no gift decision for Floyd was it buddy ;-). Martin Murray won an easy 8 rounds against Martinez and got robbed to the point of Pac-Bradley. Yea it was that bad. Martinez is avoiding ggg as it’s most of the middleweight division. For good reason……….now to this subject matter seriously if Khan gets this b fight I’ll be tuning out. The idea of it is a joke within itself.

this isn’t a recent thing, they’v been ducking ggg for years. he’s the most avoided fighter in the entire sport. they’re ducking him because they know how dangerous he is. the sport is a close-knit community, all theses sparring stories get out you know. he beats up hws, cws in the gym.

Posted September 18, 2013 11:03 pm

i was watching one of ggg’s fights the other day and i realized as i was looking at the hbo graphic of the mw picture and of all the main players they had on their line up that every single one of them had either blatantly ducked ggg, been avoiding him, even publicly admitting they weren’t keen on the fight, and/or been worked over in sparring by him. the main players were:

sergio martinez – neither he or his promoter wants anything to do with ggg. lou dibella went from saying who is ggg (the wba champion), he doesn’t deserve a fight with sergio, to matthew mackilin will beat him, ggg is going to have to go through hell to beat mack the knife, but if he does i promise you can have sergio ggg,

then ggg ko3 (with ease), known warrior macklin reduced to a mouse in seconds after tasting one ggg right hand, breaks mack’s rib with a body shot, 25 year veteran of the sport dibella says that’s one of the best body shot’s i’ve ever seen, you could hear how loud it was from ringside, only roy jones body shot against hill was better, ggg is a beast! he’s going to destroy so many guys, we’ve found the new mw succesor, i’m not sticking sergio in there with him. sergio is out for a year no way i’m sticking him in with a guy like that!

julio cesar chavez jr – ggg embarrassed him in sparring

felix sturm – his ducking of ggg is on par with mayweather ducking pacquiao, a display of disgraceful cowardice of the highest order. ggg was his mandatory challenger for years but sturm found a way to wriggle out of the fight everytime.

daniel geale – former ggg amateur victim, vacated his title to avoid ggg, fought mundine instead, i understand it was a lucrative option but he gave up his belt to avoid ggg

dmitry pirog – pulled out of a big fight against ggg, but to be fair was legitimately injured

peter quillin – ggg worked him over in sparring, has publicly expressed his reluctance to fight ggg, don’t believe his claims to the contrary, you’d have to be blind and brain dead not to sense the trepidation on his part.

and we can add

hassan n’dam n’Jikam – sturmesque type ducking of ggg. at least four times they tried to make that fight, n’jikam wanted absolutely nothing to do with ggg, even gave up his wba interim belt. even long time fans of his on forums were saying things like ”this is the most blatant duck ever”

anthony mundine – turned down a vacant wba title shot against ggg, in australia lolz, said he had bigger fish to fry only to then go and fight ryan waters and garth wood. ggg team said this beforehand:

“We will fight Mundine on his home turf and win the title in Australia if he decides to show up,” stated Gotzev. “We don’t care if we fight in his backyard. Let his family be the judges. When Gennady Golovkin hits him with either hand, nothing else will matter. He will knock Mundine out!”

darren barker’s promoter eddie hearn publicly admitted they wanted nothing to do with ggg. how it would be a really bad idea to put barker in there with him and one that he had no intention of doing unless he absolutely had to

how do you beat ggg?

darren barker: ”take a baseball bat in the ring”

martin murray: ”lolz, yes take a baseball bat in the ring”

“GGG is not a big enough name for Flloyd and he’s not a lineal champ. Gennady can’t whip old man Hopkins at 168-175″

That pure B.S.! The only reason why he’s not the lineal, Ring champ is because Martinez had been ducking for close to two years. And Maravilla really lost his last fight to Murray, but was gifted a hometown decision.

Anybody who really knows boxing recognizes that 3G is definitely THE BEST MW in the world, and he owns two MAJOR titles. And 3G is small MW, so B-Hop should agree to fight him at 164lbs. Shoot….Popkins just said he wants to fight FMJ at 160lbs, so he has no excuses not to fight 3G at 164lbs — other than lack of courage.

Was Cotto the lineal, Ring Champ when FMJ fought him at 154lbs??? NO! Was ODLH the lineal, Ring Champ when FMJ fought him at 154lbs??? NO!

Khan has a fight scheduled with Devon Alexander in December. He will probably come away a loser—but Virgil Hunter believes he’ll score an upset.

Hunter is no idiot. Khan is very good at shooting straight punches from range. He did well versus timid mixers like Judah, Malignaggi, and Kotelnik. Amir handled cautious southpaw Zab Judah with some ease, and Hunter figures Alexander is along the same style. Alexander was a reluctant mixer in his fights with Bradley, Kotelnik, and Matthysse—so Devon must change his attitude abruptly for his fight with Amir.

The book has been written on how to beat Amir Khan… It’s a short tome.

Danny Garcia CLEARLY WON that fight and I had predicted a Matthysee KO before the bout… He landed the combos, he banged Lucas to the body and he put him down with a sloppy KD… Both guys fought hard but Matthysees inability to impose his power, his trying one shot at a time and his compromised vision lost him the fight… I could see a rematch but if I were Garcia I would thing about fighting at 147 and possibly getting his career high payday if he wins the FMJ sweepstakes…

Gonzo the Dragonborn

I was impressed by Floyd’s performance against Saul Canelo. I still maintain Canelo took the fight way too soon though (not saying he would’ve beaten Floyd at any time though), and whilst he does have some nice nice boxing skills, his game plan was awful.. trying to outbox someone who is fleeter of both hand and foot than him was just downright stupid. His advantage was his physicality, size and strength and he should’ve used them. From what I hear Canelo is very lazy in training and does what he wants to, not what he should be doing. You need to fight at a high pace and throw lots of punches against Floyd, try to disrupt his rhythm and get him a little flustered, not fight in spurts and let him fight at his own pace and do what he wants to. Having to cut all that weight wasn’t going to help him in that regard either. That said, Floyd looked really good and whilst I think he’s a revoltingly shallow and vain materialistic prick and most of his groupies just as vile, he could hold his own in any era. Canelo is a good fighter, albeit nowhere near as talented as some of his more celebrated countrymen like Chavez, Sanchez, Barrera, Marquez, Morales etc., and he can come again.

This makes sense,it would be a huge fight this side of the pond. From Mayweathers point of view it would be a pretty routine defence and he would make a huge amount of money out of it.

If Khan can score an upset over Devon Alexander — and I don’t see that happening because Devon is coming to punch his lights out — he will get a Floyd fight in an English soccer stadium.

Khan will say he has the secret to beating Floyd. Highlights of his fights with Kotelnik, Judah, and Malignaggi will be matched to thunderous music on hype commercials.. He will talk about how he plans to use his speed and power to KO an “aging” Floyd. The full hype train will be rolled out complete with experts who claim Khan has the perfect style to beat Floyd.

The fight won’t be in London. Jr was talking about “My next fight in…Dubai…London//etc” for years now. Jr has leverage anywhere because he is a big draw but, not like he has in Vegas. Even with Jr’s leverage Canelo received a partial “hometown” decision in Jr’s backyard. Jr wouldn’t risk an unfavorable decision for a higher gate. Especially when he already has high PPV buys.

The Khan fight shouldn’t happen, but these last Mayweather fights are all about showtimes investment return. They have guaranteed Mayweather a lot of dough and in order to get a return on their investment they need to fight fighters that have a large loyal fanbase… Enter Amir Khan. Most true fight fans already know that Khan doesn’t stand a chance, just like I mentioned of Saul before that fight, but he has a large and loyal fanbase in the UK. Look for this fight to be made and held in the UK. It just makes sense…dollars and cents. The winners will be Floyd and the promoters, the losers will be Khan and the exploited UK and US fans. Who else has such large followings? Maybe Sergio Martinez? God I hope not.

Our HW Champs have fought sub World Class comp for years now as they have gotten older… All Mayweathers opponents have been World Class, HOF or Championship level fighters…If FMJ wanted to try 160 which is crazy for him it would have been 5 years ago… At this point he can fight where he is, how many weight classes did Marvin Hagler fight in? How many did Duran win titles in?

All these future match ups will concede the fact that Jr won’t face his most dangerous contemporary. With that said, This will be the first promotion that Jr could play “The Good Guy”. Very few can match Khan’s level of delusion(he must have Audley Harrison as a life coach). If you totally ignore the fact that Khan has done nothing to earn a title shot at welter, then stylistically this is a decent match up outside of Top Rank. Jr again will be a HEAVY favorite. Khan has speed & a decent jab. But Khan has the strategic fighting mind of an average 8yr. old. The man refuses to make adjustments. This is one of the few fights that Jr would have good odds for a TKO.

Posted September 18, 2013 11:48 am 


Jab

Blame whoever or whatever for Alvarez’s loss. The fact is the fight didn’t live up to it’s hype, and it seems DeLaHoya disappeared before the public learned they paid an exorbitant fee just to watch another uneventful boring Mayweather exhibition.

Team Mayweather said on ALL ACCESS “THEY build a fighter up and THEY tear them down,” and Mayweather commended his staff for doing an excellent job.

The word is people walked out during this fight as they did the Guerrero fight, so Mayweather may have a tough time selling his next fight regardless of the opponent.

Kahn is the only fighter that makes money, at least in the UK market, US fans are not going to pay to see Mayweather KO Kahn. Broner is the only one that comes close to matching Mayweather. GGG ? NO! Moving to one 160? Mayweather is a little fella, poor guy barley made 150 and was 145 the night of the fight. Kahn may not get by Alexander unless the fix is in.

Posted September 18, 2013 11:45 am 


TARK

Khan has a fight scheduled with Devon Alexander in December. He will probably come away a loser—but Virgil Hunter believes he’ll score an upset.

Hunter is no idiot. Khan is very good at shooting straight punches from range. He did well versus timid mixers like Judah, Malignaggi, and Kotelnik. Amir handled cautious southpaw Zab Judah with some ease, and Hunter figures Alexander is along the same style. Alexander was a reluctant mixer in his fights with Bradley, Kotelnik, and Matthysse—so Devon must change his attitude abruptly for his fight with Amir.

The book has been written on how to beat Amir Khan… It’s a short tome.

Go after Amir… make Amir fight… and chase Amir out of the ring with his tail between his legs… Expect Alexander to be right in AK’s face and destroy any prospect of a Khan fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Mayweather did NOT really “move up” he was 150 fight night which is in line with where he normally comes in give or take a couple of pounds…Floyds a precision instrument, he said he woke up 146 the day of the bout and had to eat in order to get up to 150… His weights a non issue he’s pretty much on weight 30 days out Everytime.. Mayweather should not spot his opponents big pounds, I think Canelo will be his last bout above 147 barring someone becoming a huge draw…

I think moving up and down will kill the momentum for Mayweather. You can not play with your body. Ask any great fighter, you body will give up on him. He has to stay a neutral weight to continue his next 4 fights or undefeated record will be erase with a lose. He should stay at 147 for his next 4 fights Garcia, Pacquiao, Bradley, Marquez rematch. Garcia should be next at 147 good challenger. Anything beyond 154 will be a mistake Martinez, GGG, Ward.

TJ – You’re correct. Notice how these same people were certain Canelo would upset Floyd, (hence the label, “The One”) but after seeing him look like a fish out of water, now they’re saying Canelo was too green; He was weight drained; Floyd knew he would win and cherrypicked him. They’ll do the same with GGG: like they did with Hatton, De La Hoya, Mosley, Cotto, and now Alvarez. Floyd needs to stay at WW and finish his four fight career. He’s already done more than enough to prove himself an ATG.

Mayweather wants a fight in the U.K. so people think therefore it should be against a U.K. fighter.But Mayweather is such a great champion a real ATG fighter,that people will buy tickets there no matter who he fights,they just want to see him in action.So really there are much better fights for him then Khan,who would get killed by Mayweather.I belive Mayweather dosent have to fight a U.K. fighter to sell tickets there,people would like to see something more competive then Khan,and really just a chance to see such a great fighter live.But ofcourse if he does fight Khan it would sell,just to see him put Khan away…maybe for good.

Armstrong was world champ from feather to middleweight (held them all at once), Harry Greb was a middleweight but beat Heavyweight Gene Tunney, Duran was a lightweight who beat Barkley (a massive middleweight) and pushed the great Hagler all the way, ray Robinson was a Welter weight who would have beaten a very good Light Heavy in Maxim if not for the heat. For me Floyd is a modern great but if he challenges GGG and puts up a good fight or wins (which I think he would) he can then enter the world of the above true ATG’s!

Posted September 18, 2013 10:05 am

CURTLEY, IF FLOYD ODES INDEED FIGHT either MARAVILLA, GGG or KID CHOCOLATE at Middleweight and WINS, Floyd will not get the credit for beating them.

People will re-evaluate their records and say in due respect WHO have they beaten at M’W?
In GGG’s and Kid Chocolate’s cases, whilst both men are terrific prospects for the long term, they really have not beaten any great Middles themselves and in BOXING terms MARAVILLA is even more of an OLD MAN than Floyd is…. Maravllla is breaking down in front of us and could easily lose to an 8 rounder in a warm up as to the P4P best fighter in the world.

The Haters will demand he steps up and faces FROCH, SOG, then B-HOP and KOVALEV…

It’s all getting a little ridiculous.

I met ROGER MAYWEATHER for the first time just after Floyd had beaten ODLH and after chatting about the history of the fight game – which is his favourite subject – I asked Roger about flyd stepping up to Midleweight and Riger told me that Floyd is NOT big enough to challenge a Middleweight….

Golovkin already said he will fight anyone at 154 to 168.

Mayweather holds 154 belts.

So what is big deal?

Always Mayweather so great, then why his fans want him to avoid Golovkin? If Mayweather can beat him then he get WBA belt. Mayweather fans so confident he can beat Golovkin but keep making excuses for Mayweather NOT to fight Golovkin.

Mayweather fans so desperate for Mayweather to win that they pray Mayweather never fight Golovkin because they know Golovkin very fast and powerful and will close Mayweather down and KO very fast. Mayweather stand no chance against Golovkin.

But do not worry Mayweather fans he will run away from Golovkin because he only fight who can beat. Golovkin destroy Mayweather and real fight fans know this.

Mayweather mention in same breath as Robinson very funny. I laugh at this! Robinson, Armstrong, Greb, Duran, true boxing LEGENDS!

Mayweather cherry picker! Not same league as all time greats and never will be. Only Mayweather fans think this, real boxing fans see that Mayweather run away from fighters who can beat him. Golovkin!

Khan needs to worry about getting past Alexander and some other fighters before he even thinks about a Mayweather fight.

Anything to get Floyd out of Las Vegas. He’s fought there for the last eight years, hasn’t left the state for a fight since he fought Mitchell in 2005. I’d like to see him fight in a different venue.

I’m wondering if Floyd might be considering a fight with Kell Brook. Brook is undefeated and holds a couple of welterweight titles–nothing Floyd would want but then again, what did Guerrero bring to the Mayweather table?

Interestingly, Brook is one inch taller than Floyd but has three inches less reach than Floyd. I’ve always thought Floyd’s 72″ reach gave him great physical advantage over most of his opponents. It’s not often that a 5’8″ guy has a 6′ reach. That’s mighty long arms giving him the ability to strike from a distance that other welterweights can’t.

Anyways, I’d like to see Floyd fight somewhere else. Hmmm, I wonder if xylocaine is legal in England?

Yuri, get real I like GGG but he is not yet in Mayweather’s league, sure he could beat him but mainly because he is about 30lbs heavier, If GGG really wants to prove his greatness he needs to deal with Martinez first and then if he has the stones Ward. I think he beats Sergio as he is slowing down but don’t give him much chance against SOG, people forget how he struggled vs Ouma if Floyd does fight GGG I think he will have some tough moments for sure but will ultimately beat him, this will move him from greatest of his era to a true all time great up there with Ray Robinsons, Armstrongs, Grebs and Durans!

But he run from Golovkin because he know Golovkin beat him very fast.

Mayweather not true warrior, he not fight best (Golovkin) he only take fight he know he can win.

Golovkin will beat Mayweather fast! whole world know this.

I heard BHop is eying a bout with Junior at 160 …

B-HOP draws even less than SOG and would bore all the non-purists to death…. WHY NOT B-HOP vs GGG??????

That is the more intriguing match…. Can B-Hop school GGG like he has PASCAL, CLOUD, PAVLIK, TITO, TARVER and so many more….

I can see FLOYD putting B-HOP and GGG in his next PPV as the build up will be electric between GGG and the former street hoodlum who is now a CEREBRAL ASSASSIN….

They can meet at 168 where B-Hop will be more effective!!!!

If Khan beats Alexander then this fight makes a lot more sense.

And quit comparing Ali to Floyd; At his best, Ali could not qualify to shine Floyd’s shoes. If you doubt me, watch all of Ali’s fights.

“Stop talking about Floyd fighting Kahn, no one cares for the BEST fighter in boxing to fight a guy who’s been knocked out silly TWICE !!!!! Come on now, give it a rest !!!! Floyd vs Garcia makes more sense… Now, if it creates more revenue to Kahn, then of course I understand.. But Floyd fans want no part of it.. It’s a waste of time !!!!” This.

Truth hurts

Floyd can’t fight in the uk , xylocaine is banned in the uk , floyd can only fight in Nevada , I’ve said this for 8 years now and I’ve not bin proven wrong , mark my words floyd will never ever fight outside Nevada ,

Lloyd Honeyghan would have done Mayweather
He smashed Donald “the Cobra’ Curry to bits

The Ragamuffin Man don’t get paid for overtime

FMJ should’ve even be considering fighting B-class competition like Khan and Devon.

Doesn’t leave much room for anyone else now does it ……… Maybe we could have Junior fight some aliens from a distance place is there are no earthlings worthy of the challenge here on EArth …………

I would like to see the fight. who else can he fight? Bradley will be smashed by marquez soon, so perhaps another go for juan manuel. his performance last time out was terrible so perhaps he is eager for a chance to redeem himself. it would be interesting to see if khan could do anything at all in the first few rounds before his inevitable knockout

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

FMJ should NEVER fight Khan or Alexander. Those are cakewalk, joke fights and would’ve even be competitive. There are competitive fights that FMJ needs to make happen before he retires (3G and Lara at 154lbs; PacMan and Garcia at WW).

FMJ should’ve even be considering fighting B-class competition like Khan and Devon.

If Khan beat Alexander then yes a match up with PBF in London would make sense & a lot of CA$H. However he’s not actually the #1 @ 147Lb in the UK right now, that’s undefeated Kell”Special K”Brook. Unfortunatly Khan has the name, so will obviously get the fight.
