Harsh Reality says, “Calzaghe would throw so many shots Golovkin won’t be able to get his off.”

Yes he would.. GGG has never been down and JC was decked several times… Did you see Kovalev-Cleverly??? That’s Golovkin-Calzaghe..

GGG WANTS you to throw.. He’s an aggressive counterpuncher who doesn’t wait.. He forces the action and makes you throw.. Then he nails people like Joe Calzaghe to the floor.

The point I made was Jeff Lacy would never last one round with GGG.

Tark, you replied:

Harsh Reality.., “Joe’s super brittle hands were tough enough to bounce off Jeff Lacy’s cranium 1,200 times.”

He didn’t land that many dummy… and he didn’t stop the inept greenhorn.

Golovkin wouldn’t let Lacy go 12… He wouldn’t let him go past ONE!!!

Posted October 4, 2013 1:39 pm

Joe landed 1,006 punches… Ever heard of figure of speech? I couldn’t remember the exact punches so used a FOS, but now I’ve checked, he landed 1,006 and probably threw 1,200. I’m sorry I’m not a walking encyclopaedia like you, or the possessor of an infallible, photographic
memory, which you obviously have and compute fights right back to the 1950′s.

Anyway, like I said it’s hard to do damage when you are trying to defend yourself from a swarm of stinging shots. Golovkin’s face was puffy and marked up after Rosada. Can you imagine what it would look like after Joe starts teeing off? Lebedev’s face comes to mind after he stepped in with Guillermo Jones!

So far Golovkin has never been punched back. Do you really think Joe would stand there like a sacrificial lamb vs Golovkin? No he would throw so many shots Golovkin won’t be able to get his off. Would be interesting to see him fight off the back foot. Anyway, let’s all hold judgement on Golovkin and see who he faces after Stevens? That will tell us more about his ambition. Remember Ricky Hatton telling Frank he was off if he didn’t get him meaningful fights when he was WBU champ? Well, let’s see what Golovkin does next.

Is that the same G’man that Nigel Benn almost killed?
Redmond, doesn’t really matter who GGG fights he’ll never be experienced enough to fight Mouthy, well in your opinion anyway.
Do you really think after he’s steamrollered all in his division that Mouthy is going to want him, not a chance.
I wonder if any of that ridiculous circus of hanger ons dare even mention GGG to him, run rabbit run.
It must really piss him off that Golovkin is held in such high regard by those in the know, I doubt you will find any of the so called experts give Mouthy any chance against this guy.
Mayweather running around as fast as he can, Golovkins jab sticks that clown on his arse, start grabbing him and he’ll break Mouthy’s ribs.
Bad bad night, still you’ll have $40 million.

GGG is nothing new in boxing Julian Jackson, GMan those mtfs could punch and proved it against each other and other good boxers. Who has GGG beat that is worth mentioning, NO ONE! So stfu about this dude until he steps up against a worthy opponent Curtis Stevens is far from that. Please go learn something about sport. You are only as good as your competition.

Calzaghe never fought a good prime boxer in his LIFE..

JC flat out DUCKED Dawson — and BTW Dawson beat old guys too, including Hopkins and Tarver.

Calzaghe also DUCKED Froch and DUCKED Glen Johnson…

Joe got cold feet and pulled out every time these matches came up.

Grennady Golovkin and Sergei Kovalev don’t duck anybody… Everybody else ducks them because they don’t want to get smashed.

Let’s say this, Joe before his hands went would have given him a good fight, I don’t think anyone can trade with Golovkin. the word is his power is scary. That’s from other fighters, not him.
Now watch me have to grovel on the third of November, Stevens by a knockout in three, ho ho.

Bulawayo2. Golovkin is a middleweight fighting a big Super middleweight/ Light Heavyweight in Joe, who took the power of Kessler and other top SMW before stepping up. No way Gennady beats Joe. Joe outlands him 3:1. The blows that crushed former LMW Macklin would just bounce off Joe like pea shells and the multitude of blows Joe lands on Gennady will feel like hail stones sent down from heaven raining forth on him like a plague? he won’t know what hit him.

I’m a big Calzaghe fan, great fighter, but I’m afraid Golovkin is another story, Joe had a wonderful chin so I suspect it would be a slugfest, with GGG winning around the sixth by what else a KO.

Ha ha ha!
Yeah Tark, Joe’s super brittle hands were tough enough to bounce off Jeff Lacy’s cranium 1,200 times. Totally ruined your kid. He’s still in therapy today asking what hit him, swearing to anyone who’d listen, that “there were five of them!” Tark, some of your posts are real good, but in this case to use your own words, you are “dead wrong,” about Joe. He would have excelled in any era with his work ethic, indominitable spirit and never say die attitude. With or without good hands he would have met fire with fire vs Golovkin and punched him to a standstill. Yes, anyone can look good when they are bullying someone who can’ t fight back, but Joe will break his heart. Not saying Joe wouldn’t take his lumps but by round 6 or 7 he will switch into a highrer gear and pull away from Gennady and leave him standing like an F1 vs a people wagon. So, yes. Joe would bash his head in. I’d say he’d outland Gennady by 3:1 over the last third of the fight. His brittle hands may even hold up to stop him too!

Bulawayo2 – Yes we should. GGG has a lot more than just potential going for him. His the future of boxing. Mayweather is a 37yr old WW with pnly two more years left in the sport. He should concentrate on building his own legacy by first establishing himself as the top MW, Wins vs Quillan and Martinez give him that chance then he should gun for Froch and Ward. With Ward he need not relinquish his titles at MW they would fight for Wards SMW title and P4P status which is high risk and high reward but still have the luxury of going back to MW if he losses.

IF he tries to cut the Ring OFF vs Kovalev he’ll be turned into CHOP SUEY. It would be Kovalev by QUICK stoppage.

Posted October 3, 2013 9:16 pm

Kovalev is at 175. Hopkins came from 160 to 175 to SPANK Tarver which shows that SIZE is not the factor. SKILLS is. ….SO Golovkin has no excuse other than he isn’t SKILLED enough which he isn’t. Has anyone seen him Fight off his back foot??? Well THAT is the SKILL that he will need in THIS Fight not cutting the Ring OFF.

Posted October 3, 2013 9:12 pm 


Bulawayo2

And you don’t think Golovkin will punish him.
I would say GGG has as many skills and a good chance of beating him. But shouldn’t ward be fighting him, aren’t they both at 168?

Posted October 3, 2013 8:59 pm 


Boxtradamus

Well his SKILL of cutting the Ring off would be rendered useless vs Kovalev because he doesn’t need to cut off the Ring vs Kovalev. Kovalev will be right on Top of him. Kovalev has the better engine which is why his workrate is higher than Golovkin’s. Golovkin’s Defensive SKILLS aren’t good enough to avoid the onslaught. A high workrate Fighter like Kovalev who also throws each punch with evil intentions is just TOO much for Golovkin. Golovkin would be PUMMELED.

Posted October 3, 2013 7:16 pm 


TARK

Harsh Reality.., “Joe Calzaghe would punch right through GGG.”

LMFAO.. Right…with JC’s super brittle hands he broke all the time.. Calzaghe was floored hard by the inept Byron Mitchell … and also floored by ancient Bernard Hopkins and washed up Roy Jones.

Calzaghe was a face first brawler like Nathan Cleverly.. Its just that Cleverly fought a great prime boxer and Calzaghe never did.

Golovkin’s skills were honed in 350 amateur fights and he has lights out punching power… A hittable face-first target like Calzaghe wouldn’t last 12 rounds against a destructive killer like Golovkin—any more than Nathan Cleverly did …

BTW Boxtra, Kovalev doesn’t have better skills than GGG.

They’re on a par, but Golovkin is the master at cutting the ring off. Golovkin was very sick for the Rosado fight. He felt so bad he wouldn’t have entered the ring against anyone else … Macklin for instance.

My objection to Mayweather is not based on colour, alright.
I’m a big fan of SRL, Hagler, Hearns, I think the two welters give Mayweather a beating. Don curry was great at that weight to, don’t think he lost as a welter.

You don’t wanna talk boxing with me if you still debating GGG’s case for Mayweather. GGG is still a laaitie to Mayweather he still needs to fight somebody ffs. He still has to establish himself as a top MW first before calling out TBE then make some defenses if he wants to be mentioned with the great MW like Bernard Hopkins, Carlos Monzon, Marvin Hagler, Bonesnatcher,. His not the first MW with a hard punch I doubt if he punches harder than Julian Jackson, G Man. Would he beat RJJ, James Toney, Nigel Benn, Chris Eubank, Joe Calzalche. I doubt he woukd beat The Cobra.

I meant to add the investment of an education system where evolutionism is used to justify their survival of the fittest economic regime

Posted October 3, 2013 4:41 am 


maracho

Bulawayo,

Gross National Product (GNP). An estimate of the total money value of all the final goods and services produced.

Evolutionism totally permeates South African division of labor, education, tourism, economic philosophy (survival of the fittest), etc. etc..

The apartheid-statist system has simply given way to the post-apartheid-statist system. From slavery to a segregation that is often worse than slavery itself. I mean the slaves may get their own shack but their owners still live in ivory towers above them as they enforce working for pennies in the mines, vineyards, etc.. or worse–as prostitutes.

Then a big proportion of these profits goes into selling evolution in their education systems and a media fervor such as National Geographic which has huge control over evolution education and even tourism. Its a vicious and dark cycle that I myself have personally done battle with.

Posted October 3, 2013 4:32 am 


Boxtradamus

Kovalev isn’t TOO big for GGG. He’s TOO SKILLED for him. Everyone thought Tarver was TOO Big when Hopkins jumped from MW to LHW TOO. But in that scenario Hopkins was the more SKILLED Fighter and him being mature and not growing was no factor in that. He hired himself a Strength and Conditioning Coach, moved UP, and SPANKED Tarver like a step child. Because SKILLS is more important than SIZE….in THIS scenario GGG doesn’t have enough SKILL to move UP and beat Kovalev.

Tark, wasn’t saying Kessler was that good, just that Ward was very dirty in his fight. As for Joe C, thought he was one hell of a fighter, defence, who needs it when one is throwing 1200 punches a fight. He would have been a handful for anyone at any time.
Having said that Golovkin would stop him

Posted October 3, 2013 3:07 am

Ward outboxed Kessler by a million miles but Kessler never could box worth a damn… Calzaghe never could box that well either and he beat Kessler 10 of 12 rounds and Froch beat him both times.. Froch isn’t that good a boxer either.. Golovkin IS a good boxer and would be the first one Ward ever met.. GGG has met a good fighter yet but he may get Martinez soon… then Quillin… Then he can go after Ward.

Edwin Rodriguez is the best boxer-puncher Ward has faced.. I’m anxious to see how he does with him.

Oh wait Stevenson is light heavy so GGG can call him out at 168 like he did Hopkins

Posted October 3, 2013 2:12 am

I haven’t seen a great deal of Ward, what I have seen doesn’t impress me. He makes Hopkins look like a clean fighter, and is just as boring, he was very dirty against Kessler. Froch with that dreadful defence of his, arms down by his side, another three rounder for GGG. I’ve no doubt should he and Ward get together Golovkin would give him a good beating.
Besides isn’t ward struggling to make 168?

Posted October 3, 2013 2:10 am 


JWales

Ward is the polar opposite of Floyd. He fights the toughest out there and “proves” he’s simply the best but without all the hype.

Ward and Froch are both calling out Golovkin but Golovking would be wise to tell them to come down to him at 164 but fight the likes of Froch and Adonis Stevenson before Ward.

Mayweather has proven that he can blow out every fighter from 140 through154. If he makes GGG or Maravilla come down to 154 and beats him then it wont mean anything for his legacy. Pacman wont add as much to his legacy as he would have 2 years ago. Mayweather has nothing left he can do to add to his career except moving up to 160 and fighting the aforementioned fighters. He might as well try to do this and accomplish GOAT prestige. Why even bother continuing to box at 147 as he is already so filthy stinking rich what else is even out there to buy that he can’t already afford?

Too slow and green for Mouthy, sounds just like the fights he likes. Mayweather, ” I won’t fight Golovkin because he’s too slow and green ”
if he ever said that he’d be laughed out of town. People would say well if you think that why don’t you fight him, he would have talked himself into a corner.
I reckon he could give Mayweather the first six rounds and still beat the crap out of him, in other words a six rounder with Floyd leading six rounds to nothing to start with. Easy for Golovkin, Mouthy feels that first jab and he would be running around like the chicken he is, cluck cluck, get out of the way here comes the Kazakh destroyer.

Chicken Coward Fraud Floyd

I can’t believe that coward fraud is doing it again! He’s fighting Amir Khan.

That’s the same Amir Khan who is infamous for packing more glass in his chin than a bottle bank.

That’s the same Amir who was knocked bandy in a round by frigging Bredis Prescott.

The same Amir Khan who has lost two of his last four fights, one of them by way of devastating stoppage in four rounds.

And even worse, he even came extremely close to losing his last fight, against a completely washed up Joel Diaz. Khan escaped with a razor thin hometown decision and he was floored heavily in the fourth and staggered and hurt on a number of other occasions throughout the course of the fight.

He even needed to do his huggy bear act on Diaz all night to avoid incurring another loss on his ledger. Had that happened he would’ve been 1-3 in his last four fights.

He’s 2-2 going into this and he needed the luck of the devil and some major hometown cooking to scrape by a completely washed up Juilo Diaz. What a complete mockery of a fight.

Once a fraud, always a fraud. That coward fraud would never fight an opponent that he thought stood a realistic chance of beating him.

Danny Garcia never fought at 147 and it makes no difference… He’ll be a lot faster at that weight, just like Adrien Broner was — because he won’t have to boil down to a much lower weight.

Garcia has a good style for Mayweather, because his best shots are the kind of punches Mayweather gets hit with. If Danny had a more educated jab, like Mikey Garcia, he’d be a real threat to beat Floyd.

Barker and Sturm are both 4-round fighters… They couldn’t get into the 4th round vs a boxer the caliber of Golovkin. They would likely get knocked out by Curtis Stevens, Peter Quillin, and obviously Sergio Martinez … Their fight means exactly CRAP!!!!

All you guys moaned like some mistreated HOES when Floyd put it on Canelo at 152 what are we gonna hear when GGG drops 7 pounds? More whining and excuses AGAIN this 160 pounders never gonna share a ring with FMJ but it’s fun to watch you fools claw at stone like an entombed vampire….

We see Barker about to face Sturm this type of fight is good for the MW division who is GGG fighting? A guy with NO cache in the division…Apparently GGG does NOT wanna build a strong legacy at 160? Guys say “GGG will fight anyone from 168 to 154″ well Floyd Mayweather can pretty much face anyone he wants soooo look for a Mayweather vs Garcia bout because Floyd has earned the right to pursue the most lucrative bouts at 147 or wherever he chooses:.. This MW cannot dictate terms to Floyd Mayweather

Redmond,
I think my last posting is quite clear. You never answer anything, why is it wrong for Golovkin to go down to 154 and not wrong for Floyd to go to 147. If Golovkin gets down to 154 do you really believe Floyd won’t GO DOWN in weight rather than fight him.
Cluck cluck the sound of mouthy Mayweather.
You don’t get it do you, GGG is very real and would destroy Mayweather.
If Golovkin is all hype as a few on here think, he should be an easy night for all those grade A middleweights, oh and Mayweather.
another simple question for you, is Mayweather the Light Middle weight champion or not.
The Golovkin Hype is so bloody good that it’s scared the crap out of everyone,

Likwise Garcia aint ever fought at 147 but since he basically lost to Matthysse y’all want him to fight Floyd. Funny how it’s the same few who kept hyping Canelo

Bul, whatever your name is HOW is Mayweather ducking to under 154 the man has fought 42 of his 45 contests BELOW 154… He has NEVER made the 154 pound limit for ANY of his fights…. GGG has NEVER fought at 154 so whens he gonna begin his campaign there and REALLY make a case thats where he belongs? He is NOT starting with Mayweather anymore than the GREAT Cotto, did or Canelo did he is gonna have to wait his turn (Which will NEVER come) the mans a MW so what are you REALLY saying????? NOTHING>>>>

Posted October 2, 2013 3:36 pm 


TARK

Waiting for Floyd-GGG is fruitless… Robert Jackson is a moron.

I want to see Golovkin-Martinez and Mayweather-Garcia … Those are both tremendous fights. Golovkin has been pushed aside long enough. No reason for Danny Garcia to be pushed aside.

Danny Garcia is not as good as Golovkin, but Danny can absorb a very hard punch. He comes after you like a killer.. He’s quick.. He’s a hard puncher.. He’s very young.. He’s undefeated and untied.. He’s a great counterpuncher.. His left hook gets there before your’s does.. His right lead is quick … and he lands it on quick fighters.

What if Sugar Ray Robinson fought Sugar Ray Leonard??? Let’s not talk about fights out there in the ether.. Let’s not talk about fights that WON’T EVER happen.. The Mayweather-Garcia fight WILL happen.

I say Floyd is no better than a 9 to 5 favorite over Danny.

Garcia is quick, smart—and he’s more mature than Canelo.. He’s a natural 147-pounder like Floyd is.. He won’t be weakened by catch-weight making so he has a far better chance.. It’s going to be a pain listening to Angel Garcia — but that’s the price of a great fight.

Posted October 2, 2013 3:34 pm

Floyd fought the LOGICAL choice in Canelo at 154 he won ALL the belts and he brought ALL the fans… Was Floyd gonna fight Trout coming off a loss with NO fanbase? thats utterly illogical…. GGG is NOT gonna get a fight tell him to build his name and shoot for a Ward bout at 168… The man is beating up TERRIBLE foes such as Ishida, Ouma, Rosado and now his sights are on another walkover opponent…. He has NO stature at MW that one can see on paper its ALL HYPE…. Guys like Broner, Matthysee, Garcia, Canelo and others have proved their point FAR more than this guy bashing unvetted comp… He is simply not capable of providing the impetus for facing Floyd, he has NOT taken the throne from Martinez, or even defeated a Quillin, Barker, Murray or Chavez Jr…. The guys looking for a hand out!

Posted October 2, 2013 3:33 pm

Proud African,
What do you mean Golovkin should fight in his own weight, surely he can fight at whatever weight he chooses.
Mayweather has just fought at Light MW, that’s not his normal weight is it.
Mayweather will now duck back into the safety of welterweight, having beaten a very mediocre Canello, thus avoiding GGG.

Posted October 2, 2013 3:31 pm

Fight Aficianado, the FANATICS on here will dream up ANYTHING Schaefer has come up with names like Garcia, and Khan… GGG is NOT even on the RADAR he has NOTHING working for him in this regard.. Hes in the WRONG weight Class, He is on the WRONG network, he is NOT the top man at 160 and he brings VERY little fanbase to the table.. Unless Mayweather is in the mood for the boxing equivalent of welfare he has NO reason to give GGG a shot… Pacquiao has a better chance and that fight has about 100 problems but it would do over 2 mill if Manny can look remotely like Manny…. GGG is a fantasy bout amongst a FEW ESB boneheads and revisionists like Bears who was SURE Canelo would defeat Floyd and maintaned that stance till (PREDICTABLY) he lost then the BUMS tune changed and it became about 2 pounds… No one wants to hear the whining when GGG has to drop a FULL 7 pounds…

Rjack we simply DISAGREE my man…. I think the ONLY thing that GGG is fight ending power at MW which is NOTHING that is spectacular when applied against WW’s…. I am sure that Lucas Matthysee can pretty much stop any 130 pounder in the World but thats not gonna make me more enamored of him… He was technically outdone by Garcia and I had predicted a Matthysee win before the bout….Golovkin is just a BIGGER than usual fighter with a punchers chance, his speed is average, his footwork is AVERAGE, his counterpunching is AVERAGE his power and strength are ABOVE average at MW…. So technically this is NO contest its all about can a MW land the ONE hard shot he needs to in order to stop a SMALL WW…. Marquez weighed as much last fight against Pacquiao as Floyd did against the MUCH bigger Canelo… That tells you how small Floyd Mayweather is…. AGAIN I am just having fun watching some of these CREEPS frothing at the mouth for a ridiculous bout against a NO NAME fighter thats not gonna happen for about 5 SOLID reasons… Watching Lion Queen, Bears, Death Star and the rest rub their meager boners chaffed his pretty hilarious… Next up is Danny Garcia with a possible Khan bout… If you don’t like it don’t watch Floyd NEVER fights NOBODIES above 147…. Look at GGG’s pic with Mike Strahan he is getting LITTLE independent discussion UNTIL his name is paired by the opportunist writer with ATG Floyd Mayweather who basically owns boxing… Standing Champ in 2 weight classes lineal at 154 this man is the CAPO….!

GGG is NOT gonna get the HONOR of sharing a ring with Floyd Mayweather he has simply NOT earned it and if he did he would do EXACTLY as he was told OR he would be facing WEAK opposition like the slew of fighters he has stopped absent Martinez leftover Macklin… “He should weigh as much as possible” basically you guys have NO real upper limit for who Floyd should fight in your minds the goal is for him to be DEFEATED by a BIGGER man well Mayweather is NOT an idiot or internet poster he is a millionaire MORE than 100 times over and he did NOT get there by being a FOOL ie fighting MW’s when he is a KNOWN small WW…. GGG would clean Floyds cars like an employee if he were told to get the fight… Don’t get it twisted this overhyped MW is not running boxing he cannot even build a decent resume in his own fcking division…HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

1. GGG has a bigger fanbase than many of Floyd’s opponents. Besides, the boxing networks are masters at hype so just imagine what a GGG 24/7 would do.

2. today Lots of move to a new weightclass for a major fight, including Mayweather himself.

3 Likewise you want Garcia to fight Mayweather at 147 without any prior experience there but in reality you want Garcia because Matthysse gave him a blueprint o lose.

Posted October 2, 2013 1:19 pm

If ggg does fight floyd he needs to weigh as much as possible and agree to nothing less than 154 at weigh in. This script has played out and old. Unless it’s just about the money and floyd represents the biggest purse for ggg. Then do whatever. canelo being forced in at 152 was weak sauce

There’s plenty of time left but the reports indicate Khan is the front runner for Floyd’s fight. If so, the best thing that can happen is Khan gets KTFO again, preventing the mismatch. I hate to say that because I actually like Khan. But fact is the only decent matches for Floyd are Pacquiao at 147, or GGG or Martinez at 154.

Canelo WON’T sell another 40000 tickets…unless he GETS Cotto in the RING, but Cotto is the A side not Canelo!! Before the Mayweather fight Canelo was putting himself in the SAME class/conversation as Julio Cesar Chavez Sr…that was a JOKE!

Cotto is in TOUGH against Rodriguez, it’s NOT a GIVEN that COTTO beats Rodriguez.

If Cotto loses the opponents for Canelo shrink – GBP don’t want Canelo fighting Lara or Carlos Molina!!

Posted October 2, 2013 12:16 pm

And WHEN this fight IS made, GGG will shrink himself down to 152lbs just like Canelo did for a $6M – $8M payday, and will LOSE just LIKE Canelo LOST!

SRED,

99% of the time I agree with you, and still do here!! But it’s NOT about what GGG brings to the table as far as VALID skills, fanbase, notoriety, or whether FANS even know who he is. What will MATTER most in this case and AS Mayweather APPROACHES Marciano’s RECORD is WHO can BEAT him with the CHANCE of KOing him so that he doesn’t equal and maybe SURPASS that record which is the ‘holy grail’ of BOXING.

GGG will get the CALL, not Khan, not Garcia, not Matthysse, not Alexander, not even Sergio Martinez!

I guarantee he WONT the guy wants a free ride on Floyd’s coattails if not he would cut weight and start seriously campaigning at 154 where he has never fought as a pro… Molina, Lara, Angulo and whomever else it takes to get noticed… But alas he wants to skip the line to Mayweather then we will hear how dropping 7 pounds killed him… This is a BORE let the man make a legacy at 160 or above if he’s capable..

Posted October 2, 2013 10:23 am

Sorry RJack you pissing in the wind with me, GGG brings nothing to the table except the hopes of a few hardcore fans that he can catch Mayweather with a big shot…His box office appeal is so WEAK he has not made a good fight in his own weight class.. He is about to face a complete NOBODY that’s not gonna raise his profile with the General public…My arguments AIR TIGHT and backed by Floyd’s history, above 147 he ONLY does mega bouts against fighters with big Fanbases ie Cotto, Canelo, Oscar…Each of these guys demonstrated clout before the contest… Cotto and Oscar had been on PPV how many times? Canelo had sold 40,000 tickets and was watched throughout Mexico, he had appeared on 2 Mayweather undercards…GGG has done NONE of the above, so how does he induce Mayweather to fight a MW? Floyd fought Alvarez at 152 why would he accommodate a 160 pounder when his best weight is 147? Again I’m just having fun watching guys dream but it’s not happening GGG is simply a terrible FAR to the left choice he’s not Marvin Hagler

Richard Schaefer has already been setting the table with 2 fighters in the Golden Boy stable Danny Garcia and Amir Khan, he has discussed a mega bout at Wembley, personally I don’t think Khans getting past Alexander that said Danny Garcia who like Canelo was featured on the Mayweather undercard strikes me as the frontrunner he has fought several name fighters and shown himself as the top 140 pounder in the sport… It’s an EASY fight to make 5 mill will easily be his biggest payday and Floyd can scoop his usual 32 mill minimum the fight will do 1mill buys so it will be profitable… No way in hell GGG brings more fans or ease of making the bout… How does he reconcile with HBO? We know Floyd’s not leaving Showtime…

Posted October 2, 2013 9:39 am

Like I SAID before, Mayweather’s $250M contract is BASED on PPV buys – 1M PPV buys ISN’T going to CUT it!! Showtime is GUARANTEEING Mayweather’s payout. A) $32M for Guerrero ~$60M in PPV revenue, b) $41.5M for Canelo ~$160M in PPV revenue. What do you think Showtime wants?? A? B? C?

It was you who raised your blood pressure to boiling point at this little old question from me, accusing me of all sorts. Funny that. If this is such a GAME to you, then why are you getting so irate over a pertinent question and resorting to abusive language in your posts.

Mistaking the prattle on the message board as representative of the hardcore fan is foolhardy, there are only 3 or 4 guys who are bankable on PPV and only 2 that can reasonably be expected to eclipse 1 million…GGG, Martinez and the rest of boxing will change divisons etc to face Floyd Mayweather because of the risk to reward ratio what other fights at 154 are they lusting for? NONE Mayweather does NOT need to face a MW Fighter, he’s already proven himself, he’s got the mega contract and the common sense to know that he’s maxed out physically at WW For the most part… If there was.

It WAS believed at the time Victor Ortiz could DEFEAT Mayweather after he BEATUP Andre Berto – 1.25M PPV Buys.

It was ONCE again BELIEVED that Robert Guerrero could DEFEAT Mayweather after he BEATUP Andre Berto – 1M PPV buys.

NO-ONE believes that Khan, Matthysse, Garcia, or Alexander can BEAT Mayweather, those are 750K PPV buys AT BEST.

There are DOUBTS as to whether Sergio Martinez can beat Mayweather with his body breaking down and him being 40.

There are DOUBTS whether Manny Pacquiao can return to the FORM he showed while beating Oscar DLH, Ricky Hatton and Miguel Cotto; after getting KO’d and put to sleep for 10 minutes by Juan Manuel Marquez.

Mayweather DUCKED Shane Mosley and was afraid of him – 1.4M PPV buys.

Mayweather DUCKED Miguel Cotto and was AFRAID of him – 1.5M PPV buys.

Mayweather WAS AFRAID of Oscar DLH – 2.5M PPV buys.

Mayweather DUCKED Ricky Hatton at 140lbs – 920,000 PPV buys.

Mayweather Would NEVER face Canelo Alvarez cause he was SCARED – 2.2M PPV buys.

Mayweather would NEVER accept the CALL out of Juan Manuel Marquez and fight him , but would instead duck Marquez – 1M PPV buys.

Mayweather would EASILY BEAT Zab Judah – 375,000 PPV Buys.

Mayweather would easily BEAT Arturo Gatti – 365,000 PPV Buys

Mayweather would easily BEAT Carlos Baldomir – 325,000 PPV Buys

See the PATTERn here?? If fight FANS believe that Mayweather is AFRAID, will DUCK an opponent or CAN be beaten by an opponent they will PART with ANY amount of MONEY to see Mayweather BEATEN and LOSE!!

His last bout was at 152….I know you cannot process this but the ONLY fights Mayweather has had above 147 (his best weight) have been MONSTER events against NAME fighters who had REAL box office appeal… I can guarantee that Golovkin is NEVER facing Mayweather and the only way GGG fights at 154 is if Canelos team decides to face him…

Hell no unless a revived Pacquiao is in the ring…The public does NOT know GGG, he does not fight in Floyd’s division and he has no fanbase outside of hardcore…There is NOT single promotional attribute he brings to the table outside a montage of him knocking out a bunch of NO NAME fighter… If any MW would deserve a Mayweather bout its Martinez, who is STILL the boss of the division till he loses…He and Floyd would be 3 years apart when they fought in 2014 (it’s not gonna happen) but he’s WAYYYY ahead of the Grossly Overhyped Golovkin

GGG WILL make it worth Mayweather’s while financially!! ANY fighter who Mayweather critics, detractors, naysayers and HATERS BELIEVE can BEAT Mayweather BRUTALLY they will part with up to $150 and purchase that PPV to SEE that FIGHTER BEAT Mayweather DOWN!!

AFTER GGG BRUTALLY stops Curtis Stevens the CALL will be for GGG to FACE Mayweather next May 2014 or September 2014 at the latest!!

GGG right now is on a PRESS tour so that fight fans can get to know who he is!!

After he KO’s Curtis Stevens, GGG will CALL Mayweather out during the POST fight interview, and the ROAR for a Mayweather/GGG fight will be LOUD and CLEAR.

Mayweathers 3 forays at 154 don’t trump the other 42 fights below that… Floyd Mayweather comes to the ring weighing 150 pounds the night of a fight MAXIMUM… Guys will say “that does not matter it’s the weigh in” that’s up to a fighter to decide for himself of he wants to spot his opponents 15 or 20 pounds which is a lot when another pro athlete is across the ring trying to knock your head off… What chance would a guy who weighed 135 the night of the bout have against a pugilist as skilled as Floyd? He would have almost none. Mayweather will be 37 by his next bout he has already proven himself in 5 divisions by this age Leonard, Hagler, Hearns, Duran, Joe Louis and most of the rest had peaked and were in decline… Mayweathers legacy is NOW 100% secure it will be noted he NEVER lost a single bout in his prime…And that he won a 4th Lineal at the age of 36, the odds favor Floyd fighting on too long th amountnod money he’s making is unreal, and it’s impossible for him or any other boxer to duplicate that revenue in one night… Should he keep looking for bigger boxers at this point? HELL No! Besides a GGG does not even make it worth his while financially …. You wanna discuss fighters with NO credentials as opponents look at the Klits opponents as they have gotten older MOST are less than World Class or 40 years old… Mayweather has faced a slew of credentialed boxers and won going away he does not have to fight a MW titlist with no fan base …Mayweather ONLY does mega bouts at 154 and GGG has less casual fan appeal than Ortiz no one knows him…

I’m no HYPE MONGER for Mayweather!! I like Mayweather and think he’s the BEST!! This article is about who Mayweather will fight NEXT and I think it will be GGG!!

Who will pay $75 to see Mayweather fight a chinny Amir Khan?? NO-ONE!

Who will pay $75 to see Mayweather fight Danny Garcia who BARELY got by Lucas Matthysee?? NO-ONE!!

Who will pay $75 to see Mayweather fight Devon Alexander? NO-ONE!!

That leaves only 2 or 3 options: Pacquiao who PROBABLY will LOSE to Brandon Rios; Sergio Martinez who’s pushing 40 and his body is beat up; and, GGG who’s 31 years old, a decorated Amateur boxer, 27-0 with 24 KO’s professional record, and MOST of ALL, Mayweather HATERS believe that GGG can KO Mayweather; the PERFECT RECIPE for boxing fans to PART with their $100 and purchase Mayweather/GGG PPV!

and i noticed once again avoided answering my questions, this time those ones s i asked you about accusing me of being a liar. you know the ones where i completely proved you wrong yet again. lolz. are you a masochist. do you enjoy getting your ass kicked and being made to look like a complete spaz all the time? don’t worry, i you don’t have to answer that one. lolz.

Floyd has just lost a lot of credibility. He is fighting Khan next. It stinks. Khan has never fought at welterweight and has no belt. Diaz floored Khan last time out and we all know Garcia spanked him. How does Khan deserve a shot? This is crazy and bad for boxing. Khan just wants a pay day then will retire. Shame on you, Floyd.

and why can’t ggg boil down to 154 if roy jones and all the other large weight cutters i listed were able to make a weight that was 20-21 lbs lighter than the one they entered the ring in the next day?

ggg is not a big mw and he could make 154 without too much difficulty. /the end

So, this is not calling out Mayweather, which you do in all your posts, which is your right to do so. But, you just contradicted yourself. Why not step up to 168, 175 which is 15 pounds difference and challenge the guys there if he’s so good and is what the greats used to do?

No! in your words he’s concentrating on 160. Then STOP with all your posts calling out Mayweather and stick to the Middleweights FFS!

The great Joe Calzaghe fought them all and finally got his rewards. Ten years, 21 defences, a two weight Lineal World champion.

Come back when Golovkin has done this. Only 7 more years and 13 more defences to go. Should be a peace of **** for the Special One!

Regarding GGG, after each fight he repeats that he’ll fight anyone from 154 to 168. He walks around in the high 160s. 154 ain’t an issue. Who do you want him to fight to get a shot at Floyd?

“By the way Mayweather in 2014 will face Martinez for his Ring belt at 160lbs.” What, now that Maravilla is pushing 40, way past his prime and plagued by injuries. Martinez called out FMJ for years at 154lbs and Floyd outright ducked him again and again. And now that Sergio and PacMan are past their primes, FMJ is finally considering fighting them. What a surprise!

One thing FMJ will NEVER do is fight 3G at 154lbs for his THREE MAJOR 154lbs titles. Why??? Because this is the classic, typical FMJ strategy of ducking the most dangerous fighters in the world during their primes. This FRAUD doesn’t even rank in top 10 of ATGs in my book. What a shameless coward!

This is not about who has GGG fought. This is the bias & double standard some of it racially motivated, some of it based purely on hate for Floyd. Mayweather is so good retards will start stating that GGG can make weight of 154lbs. This article is rubbish. When was the last time GGG campaigned at 154lbs. So he will just jump the queue and get first preference like JCC Jr? Who seems to get away with everything these days. By the way you plain stupid if you think GGG KO Floyd. I would love this fight to be made. I say, bring it on. Using the bums that GGG has beaten as a barometer is delusional. By the way Mayweather in 2014 will face Martinez for his Ring belt at 160lbs. Let haters hate for pete’s sake.

No, learn to read. I said I didn’t post in that thread those 4 days between why i left it and then you posed me a question which you then accused me of ducking. i even posted the part of the thread to prove it. that makes you a retard.

answer me this. did i or did i not say i was making my departure 4 days before you posed that question you’re accusing me of ducking? and did i not post in it the day after that. or the following day? and the following day before you posed the question? yes or no. the proof is there right in front of your eyes. so why did you then try and then claim i was ducking answering a question in a thread i’d stopped posting in 4 days before you posed the question, and had already announced i was making my departure from on that day? we hadn’t even conversed in it. you only made an appearance it 4 days after i’d stopped posting in it and then for no reason at all you got all narky about the fact i didn’t answer it, even though i’d already announced i was leaving after celebrating my victory 4 days earlier. lolz

and what the hell are you talking about? i’ve already explained the situation why he’s been fighting at 160 you moron. his main plan has been to raise his profile and achieve all he can at 160 first and foremost. that’s the division he turned pro at and tried to make his mark at. unifying at 160 is still his main goal. he isn’t even chasing mayweather or calling him out. lolz. he’s just said he thinks he’s a great fighter, that he respects him, and that he would love to fight him and that he would move down now or in a couple of fights to 154 to fight him if it were possible. the i’ll fight anyone, anywhere between 154 and 160 mantra is only a fairly recent thing. and the reason he’s taken that stance is because everyone has been ducking and avoiding him. like i said his main focus is at 160 but he is willing to go up and down in weight to secure ”compelling fights” against big name opponents, ie. a mayweather or a canelo if at 154. or one of the top dogs at 168. he’s not saying that he can walk straight into a mayweather fight. neither have i said that either. he’s saying he’ll go down and have a 1 or 2 fights at 154 against a big name like a canelo, or even a cotto to try and set up the mayweather fight.

HARSH REALITY

Death Star. Nice to see you have finally answered my question. Contrary to you saying you weren’t posting for the last 4 days, you were, so that makes you out to be a liar.
You also answered your own questions, saying Golovkin had tried to get the top fights at MW, but failed and was NOT prepared to go down to LMW to start again from the bottom.

Two answers to this. As MW champ for the last three years, he could have fought at LMW in non title fights between defending his MW strap as one poster said the greats of yesteryear did when they regularly fought several times a year. That way he keeps his title and becomes a DARK SHADOW at LMW and would have been breathing down the necks of Cotto, Canelo, Trout, Mayweather, Bundrage, Mora and the others in a position to make dollars and a name.

Mayweather had been through the same process, somewhat frozen out by Arum until he left him, took the short money vs Oscar and now is in the top dog position to call the shots.

Golovkin, could have been a two weight belt holder, known by Joe Public and forced Mayweather’s hand for a big fight in May, by going this rout.

Oh, yes. you are dead wrong. The way fighters get title shots and high rankings is by having GREAT TEAMS around them who lobby at World Body conventions, arguing their fighter’s cause, who make sure their fighter is seen at the right events, even making direct challenges to other fighters – look at Shane Mosley to Mayweather’s face and create interest that way.

If you don’t speak up, you get let out or forgotten. Three years he’s been champ and he’s only gaining momentum in the last couple months.

The Great Joe Calzaghe had to bide his time with horrible mandatorily before, bashin,g the heads in of name fighters during his 10 years of SMW dominance! He didn’t whine or ***** like you do everyday. Joe was in his 30′s before he got his big break. Mayweather was 30 when he got his.

This is a business. You can’t just knock at the door bringing nothing to the party.

If Golovkin is the real deal he will rule boxing, whether it’s in a couple of years when Mayweather is gone and he will still make money.

Oh, yes. I am NOT SRedmond, Supreme Court or any other poster. So, any of your so called interactions with them are nothing to do with me.

Just for you, I have written my own version of War and Peace.

Sredmond says.., “GGG has about 1/5 of Floyd Mayweathers skills and ring IQ”

Really??? How many amateur fights did Floyd ever have??? What was his winning percentage??? You’re horrible at analyzing upcoming fights — yet you feel free to denegrate great fighters.. You don’t have the expertise to do that.

Let’s be honest.. Floyd never met any boxer with the skills of a Guillermo Rigondeaux, Andre Ward, Mikey Garcia, Sergei Kovalev, or Grennady Golovkin.. The only guy who will ever be recognized as an ATG who is near Floyd’s weight is Golovkin, and that fight is unlikely to take place. Juan Manuel Marquez is an ATG but everybody knows he wasn’t a welterweight when he fought Floyd. In fact he had just moved to lightweight and hadn’t fully acclimated to 135. Miguel Cotto is an ATG but he was plaster casted by Cheato long before he fought Floyd.

Part of Floyd’s reputation as the GOAT is based on his beating 21 world champions — none of whom were ever ATG’s Floyd’s weight, or will ever be in the future.. There’s a bare possibility that Danny Garcia, who lacks both a jab and a stellar defense at this stage of his career, may become an ATG at sometime in the next 10 years.. Adrien Broner could possibly become an ATG in that time … but he won’t fight Floyd.

Canelo will run into Golovkin when he moves to middleweight.. That will be a disaster for him.

Floyd never had a super great opponent — that is why it’s so important that he fight Pacquiao if Pac can get past Rios… Pacquiao was at least a Fighter of the Decade and a Number One P4P Fighter for a few years … and he’s 2 or 3 years younger than Floyd.

Death Star

one more time for clarification, ggg is a small mw, in this era of day before weigh ins his body frame is actually that of a natural lmw, which is why up until less than a year ago he was walking around at between 160-162 lbs and why many lmws weigh roughly the same or even more than him on fight night. however this past year they’ve made a concious decision to try and bulk up a bit because they had planned to put him in there against a couple of big smws early this year. what he’s saying is that 160 is the division he’s focused on, but that he is willing to go down to 154 or up to 168 (the later of which ideally after he’s done his business at 160 and 154 if possible) for compelling fights against big name opponents. the whole point i’ve been making all along here is that ggg is no bigger than canelo. now instead of just saying we think ggg is too good, hits way too hard and might beat mayweather, his lovers are instead putting up excuses after excuse as to why the fight should never happen, whilst all the while, and this is best bit, saying that mayweather would beat ggg with ease. lolz. how can he be too big for mayweather if he’s no bigger than caleno, who has weighed as high as 172lbs on fight night, 2lbs higher than ggg’s highest ever weight? just admit you think he’s too dangerous for mayweather. i’ll respect that. and don’t claim mayweather is better or deserves to be ranked higher on the atg list than fighters who took far greater risks, against far greater fighters than ggg, and ones who were much, much bigger than them. that’s the crux of what i’ve been arguing all along for the most part. my work here is done.

If GGG gets down to 154 he will be in Mouthy Mayweathers weight division. Or was I hallucinating last week when I saw him beat Canello for three LMW titles.
Nobody is suggesting that Mayweather step up to 160, but if he thinks he’s the best at 154 prove it. Golovkin awaits.

Old Coot.., First of all Floyd tried to get fights with Mosley and Oscar when Floyd was a lightweight and they were super-welterweights.. They were still bigger names than Floyd at the time and wouldn’t fight him.

Floyd didn’t want the rematch with Oscar, but you saw how Oscar did with Pacquiao.. It would have been the same type of disaster if Oscar rematched Floyd because it was a welterweight fight.

Thirdly.. GGG is an attacker.. He’s a master at cutting the ring off.. Canelo is a poor attacker and can’t cut the ring off effectively.. He didn’t even KO Matt Hatton.. Golovkin has 14 straight KO’s.. He took out Macklin who floored Martinez and gave him Hell.

Golovkin is on a totally different level than Canelo.. He’s more a level with Kovalev, Mikey Garcia, Rigondeaux, Ward, and Floyd.

Posted October 1, 2013 10:31 pm 


Old Coot

@ Squared-Circle: I mostly agree, all except, for a couple things… Floyd also avoided Mosley for years; and retired to avoid a rematch with Oscar, as well as fights with the then prime and undefeated versions of Cotto, Paul Williams, and the (pre-cheat) Margarito too.

And as i said earlier, I actually think 3G is only a slightly faster, taller, and more agile version of Alvarez… And as was the case with Canelo, 3G would have a definite puncher’s chance to KO Floyd, as was the case with Canelo. And like Alvarez, Golovkin will have too much trouble getting to Floyd and hitting him… So I think Floyd beats 3G by SD or UD.

To my mind, the only ones out there with the speed, power (in both fists), footwork, agility, and stamina to give Floyd a REAL challenge is Manny Pacquiao or perhaps Maravilla. And no matter what… If Floyd never fight the Pacman in particular… Floyd’s record will always have that asterisk *… As in, *”Floyd was a great. But he never faced the Pacman to prove it once and for all!”

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

TENS of MILLIONS of fight fans KNOW that Castillo beat FMJ in their first fight. Castillo threw 506 punches and landed 203 (40%); FMJ threw 448 and landed 157 (35%). But more importantly, Castillo threw 377 power punches and landed 173 (46%). FMJ only threw 151 power punches and ONLY landed 66 (44%) of them. That’s 173 to 66 power punches!!!

CompuBox is not perfect, but it’s extremely important because we see WAY too many robberies and bad decisions in pro boxing. It’s the only empirical, fact-based system of evidence that analysts, writers and fans have to fall back on when decisions go to the wrong fighter. When FMJ was judged to be the winner, the large crowd in Vegas erupted with angry disgust and booed loudly for well over 10 minutes.

FACT: FMJ lost his first fight to Castillo. The statistical evidence is just too overwhelming to dispute. So FMJ is NOT really undefeated. His REAL record is 44-1 and he’ll have at least 2 losses on his record if he continues to fight the very best in the world (e.g., 3G at 154lbs) before he retires. This is not the GOAT that we’re taking about here. Real Talk.

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

HappyB*tch: “What’s the gain for Floyd?” How about honor, pride, legacy and PROVING that he’s actually the best 154lbs in the world and the best fighter of his generation. FMJ has already made enough $$$ for a hundred lifetimes, so the last thing he should be concerned about is money at this point. Unless of course he’s greedier than uncle Bob, the J-Boy.

3G is blowing up and developing a HUGE fan-base. Another one or two more fights on HBO and he’ll bring just as much money to the table as Martinez, if not more. Everyone already knows that Sergio is washed up and 3G is the best MW in the world. Plus, he’s a small MW so can easily make 154lbs.

Mayweather has cemented a questionable “legacy” in the halls of Boxing history. As the guy who clearly lost to Castillo, ducked PacMan for years when he was prime, ducked Maravilla at 154lbs for years, and is now ducking 3G at 154lbs and will continue to do so. MILLIONS don’t consider that a concrete legacy, we consider FMJ to be the cherry-picking chess master of over-hyped promotions.

@Harsh Reality, I think the Eastern Bloc fighters are usually very reserved they don’t speak much and they don’t have much facial affect. Almost a permanent poker face. It would be nice if he pulled a David Haye and marketed himself and forced the issue but I can’t see Golovkin doing that. He has loads of confidence but not flamboyantly. He and all the others for the most part(accept for that Russian heavy K2 just signed) are very subdued and don’t like to cause scenes, ever.

SQUARED IDI0T – Where’s the gain for Floyd? GGG has no big fan base, his resume is against average boxers, besides being a white MW who has a hard punch and a good amateur background what does he bring to the table? GGG still has a lot of work ahead of him before he could even be considered a good MW nevermind a fight with one of the best boxers in the history of boxing. Seems to me his the one who needs to build his resume by fighting Lara, Angulo, Canelo, Cotto, Martinez etc. Mayweather’s legacy is cemented in the halls of Boxing history.

If GGG fights Money, he would be another slightly more agile Canelo… In other words he’d have a good shot at ending it with a lucky power punch or two, but his feet and hand speed are a bit too slow to catch up with Floyd enough to do that sort of damage… I believe this was the reason he chose Canelo. So similarly, Floyd will pick GGG, but force him to also come down in weight to 152. The only ones out there with the speed, agility, and stamina to give Floyd a challenge is Manny Pacquiao.

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

A lot of fans are confused regarding this issue. FMJ took a step-up in weight class when he beat Canelo. He is now the lineal, Ring Jr. MW Champion of world and now holds THREE MAJOR titles at 154lbs.

To hear you guys say he’s not big enough to defend all those 154lbs titles is DOWNRIGHT RIDICULOUS! IF FMJ is not big enough to fight at Jr. MW, then he never should’ve fought ODLH, Cotto and Canelo. And he better VACATE all those 154lbs titles ASAP!

By the official rules of boxing, FMJ MUST defense those titles against the very best in the world who can make weight at 154lbs. And that means fighting 3G and Lara, among others. Floyd won’t even fight Broner or Bradley to unify the titles at WW. What a total F’ing joke!!! You Floydiots are being played like a toy drum and aren’t even smart enough to realize it.

Personally I think GGG beats Mayweather. However FMJ has never professed to be a middleweight. Don’t be confused by FMJ’s more flashy defence, GGG is equally as technical but just has a different approach more attuned to his body type.

FMJ is the best pound for pound and GGG is probably the best middleweight. For me the weight gap is too great to make the fight credible, FMJ struggles to get above 150 on fightnight, no way he should be looking north of 160.

“No one will face me” this is an excuse GGG build your NAME take some chances!! The line to fight Floyd Mayweather stretches around the block! Get busy at 160 and 168 let’s pretend every fighter in your class is fearful of your power… Why would smaller guys face you? Illogical waste of time… Fight in your own division or move up but spoiling for a Mayweather bout is only gonna have you wasting your career and NOT building a legacy that’s rooted in Macklin, Ishida, Ouma and Rosado now Stevenson for Gods Sake… Stop wasting time!! You have NOTHING coming to you even disgraced Margarito took tough fights like Paul Williams before he got to Cotto plastered up or not…

Posted October 1, 2013 6:04 pm 


SREDMOND

Golovkin ain’t getting a Mayweather bout facing C listers and his skillset at 154 would leave him vulnerable to even Lara and Canelo who I think is a BETTER all around fighter than this heavy handed plodder… Alvarez can counterpunch GGG is so badly untested at the World Level do we really know how good he is? I mean I’m gonna give him the nod against C and maybe B- level guys but beyond that it becomes a speculative stretch…Guys are STILL discussing his amateur exploits as if they guarantee him a bout with FMJ… When Wards Olympic Gold is discussed it’s simply an addendum to a Great Pro career…Ward and GGG have a similar number if fights and look at the quality gap in their resumes!!! GGG is back facing ANOTHER scrub meanwhile after a layoff Ward is facing the top challenger who is fresh and undefeated..GGG might prove to be a force one day but he’s WAYYYY overhyped
At this juncture….sorry to burst the collective bubbles of ESB dullards…

But seemingly too much weight for mouthy Floyd even at 154lbs!
Perhaps Redmond can tell us how Golovkin gets all these top guys into the ring, they aren’t exactly lining up for a crack at him, and there’s a very good reason for that, you might have noticed he beats the crap out of everyone.

GGG is using Mayweathers name because his own holds very little weight… He’s riding the SACK of a smaller ATG instead of shooting for bouts at 168 which would prove him brave and hungry for competition he knows the smaller Mayweather is no threat to KO him so what’s he got to lose? At 168 like Chavez at 168 he faces risk of being hit by bigger men and guys his size…

Fritz, Macklin is a World Class fighter winding down but he was STOPPED and Sergio beat him up thats why he was saved and TKOed… As for Canelo FACT is that he simply has accomplished MORE than GGG!! Canelo was the TOP man at 154 he beat Trout and Unified saying “everyone can beat him is whatever” like who??? Lara who eked by Molina? or got knocked down 2x by a crude fighter like Angulo? Angulo who was stopped by Kirkland and Lara? Vanes who is more talk than real substance???? Reality is that Canelo had the belts, the youth, the size and the fanbase and Mayweather just handled his BUSINESS…. AGAIN we are seeing EPIC dominance!

Dionysus. Only a fool would not give GGG his props. Yes, he is a good fighter with a good pedigree. But, let him make his own path. Line them up, then knock them down. If he was really serious he would have donea David Haye and been on Martinez, Quillin, Geale and now Barker like a rash at all their fights gate crashing their interviews, demanding to fight them.

I seriously don’t understand how he can be eight defences in and less well known than Chavez Jnr. Why didn’t he stalk Jnr and force the issue? if he had done the general public would know all about him already.

I can see them saying, fool me once re Canelo 42-0, so, why should we buy into GGG when we can’t name one guy he’s ever beaten?

The great Joe Calzaghe made sure he beat name fighters before getting the really big names! often taking rubbish money to get to where he wanted. Not sure how good GGG’s team is at business end of boxing. He has a world class trainer but, I question how good his team is at getting him the right fights.

Sometimes you gotta take the short purse to get the really big pay days down the line like Joe did on some undercards.

GGG, looks like a MW, I am sure if Martin Murray landed a bomb on Mayweather it would be an issue hes gonna outweigh this fighter by 20 pounds EASY and is used to being hit by and hitting bigger men… GGG has about 1/5 of Floyd Mayweathers skills and ring IQ he is ONLY FAR bigger and thats it,… Mayweather has been dominating World Class, Championship and HOF caliber competition for 17 years pretty much since beat Hernandez WAYYYYYYYY back win… What well respected standing Champion has GGG beat? What were Macklins (his best wins) credentials when Golovkin beat him?? Beating Alcine after losing to Martinez via TKO… Good fighter but this is pedestrian comp for Floyd Mayweather… I am sure that Chavez Jr would level Floyd with a big shot but does this make him a BETTER fighter? HELL NO Chavez was coming to the ring at 181 after hitting the scale at 160…. Anyone who thinks that this neophyte slugger is a better “boxer than Floyd Mayweather” needs their head examined… If he moved up 8 pounds and fought Andre Ward he would get BLOWN out and as terrific as Ward is he is not Floyd Mayweather who has done it deep into his 30′s….

Maybe he doesn’t want to fight nobodies in belief it will not challenge him and be a backward step. Not to mention I’m sure fans will say: why is he fighting bums!?

When
Has he EVER fought at MW? Reality is that GGG has a 3% chance of getting a Mayweather bout your thought process is not logical Garcia has a better shot he was showcased on the Mayweather undercard and has been on the ring with name fighters like Khan, Judah, and Morales… He’s the proven best fighter at 140 and he’s going to 147….This article is an exercise in self pleasuring for guys dying to see Floyd fight a MW

Mayweather did it 4x, Sergio Martinez went from 147 to 160, Marquez 126-147, PAC Man 106-147… If GGG is so desperate to show that he’s the second coming let his stop targeting recycled 154 pounders and looking for WW’s despite the payday… Andre Ward has dominated his division and solidified himself as by far the top 168 pounder in the world… Let’s see GGG dominate ANYTHING other than SOFT comp.

No they are gonna say who the hell is this guy Mayweathers fighting…Canelo is BIG in Mexico he pulled 40,000 fans to Texas he brought something to the table including status as the Top154 pounder in the World after Unifying against Trout…GGG brings Matthew Macklin and a rusty Silver medal to the table plus he’s a MW… Boys dead in the water and if he wants to be taken more seriously he’s gonna have to take chances against appropriate 160-168 pound competition….

How is Golovkin beating an unknown hand picked opponent gonna make him the talk of the town? And is he’s this Super dangerous 160 pounder why are discussions not revolving around him beating the NEXT tier of 160 pound fighter? If the story is that he can fight up to 168
Then why does Greatness lie facing a guy who’s known to be best at 147? Reality is that Golovkin is using names like Ward and Mayweather to raise his profile but he’s not making REAL waves in his own division…Sooner or later he’s gonna have to take some chances to prove himself, Stevenson, Ishida, Ouma and Rosado ain’t cutting it… Closest he’s getting to FMJ is Mayweather fighter Je Leon Love at 160…HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

Posted October 1, 2013 12:03 pm

If as Redmond says Mayweather runs around all night pot shotting GGG and wins easily, why doesn’t he challenge him at 154lbs.
If Golovkin gets down to 152\4 lbs why shouldn’t he fight Mayweather for his LMW title. People that are keen on GGG moving up in weight to fight guys that are clearly bigger than him, I don’t see Ward or anyone else offering to go down in weight to take on Gennady.
I will say it again for your benefit Redmond, fights are made at weights and not heights or anything else. So describing Stevens as a midget means very little, when was the last time anyone saw a fight with two identical fighters.
I don’t think Stevens has much of a chance, but he does have a better chance of beating Golovkin than Mayweather does, by virtue of a supposedly big punch.
Mayweather can’t beat GGG, at least not while he’s got a hole in his arse\ass!

SRed, I agree with you, but that’s how FIGHTERS are BUILT up. Canelo fought the SAME type of soft opposition and MADE everyone BELIEVE he was going to KNOCK Mayweather out. So they PARTED with their $75!

The SAME formula is being used to BUILD GGG up!! After STEVENS the uninformed BOXING fans will BELIEVE that HE is the ONE to stop Mayweathers winning streak by BRUTAL KO, and EVRYONE will PART with their $100 to see it!!

Oh yeah, you know as well as I do…a freakin Heavy weight would probably drain himself to 154 for a big payday against Floyd. Don’t count anyone out gents, boxing has changed since the 70′s and 80′s. Catch weights seem to be the norm now and the $$$ generated for a fight will change the mind of any fighter to come down or move up for a big payday.

I think Floyd is in a really good place right now, he can and will beat all 147 pounders, he can and will beat the 154 pounder considered ELITE right now, and yes GGG is a 160 pounder, coming down would be dangerous because of the draining. So, Floyd might and probably will retire with the (0) on his record.

TRUE Floyd Mayweather isn’t obligated to MOVE up; but SETTING the PPV record CHANGES all of that!

Will you pay $75 to see him fight Amir Khan? $75 for Devon Alexander? $75 for Danny Garcia?? NO you won’t, none of these guys have a chance!!

After GGG DESTROYS Curtis Stevens, the CALL for a Mayweather/GGG fight will be at it’s PEAK, and SHOWTIME wanting to MAKE more PPV revenue will PUSH for this fight!!

The reality is that Floyd Mayweather once had to go from 130 to 135, then 135 to 140, then 140 to 147, then 147 to 154…. Along the way 44 pro boxers failed to derail him, that said he’s not obligated to keep moving up in weight till he finds a boxer big enough to overwhelm him…His detractors are not wanting for a competitor in his now appropriate divisions they are looking for a way for him to LOSE… Would Death Star, Bears or Lion Queen kneel and acknowledge Mayweathers brilliance when he runs circles around GGG and is on his bike the whole night pot shotting because he knows this big MW’s only chance is to land a haymaker?? NOOOOOOOO they will be further enraged and look for the next guy likely at 168… Again this is ALL a game to these goons who accept NO facts and spew relentless contradictions..

AFTER GGG KO’S Curtis Stevens the HYPE will GROW for GGG to fight Mayweather NEXT, cause it will be BELIEVED by ALL that he will KO Mayweather and fans will PART with their $75 to see that!! GGG has SAID he will go down to 154lbs to face Mayweather.

“GGG has called out everyone from 154 to 168″ this is an OLD tired tactic for selling a weak resume…GGG might prove over time to be a real force in boxing but as of now he’s just another guy spoiling to get paid…Many fighters have had to ACTUALLY fight their way to the top, beating up a SOFT schedule of boxers might not do the trick initially, Canelo Alvarez fought over 40 guys most soft initially before he got a crack at Mayweather and brought a big fan presence to the dance… What’s GGG got? 27 or 28 soft competitors? He fights well above Mayweathers BEST weight, he’s NOT even the top boxer at 160…GGG wants it EASY he wants the TOP fighter and money maker on the entire planet to spot him 2 divisions and allow him to skip the line… That’s NOT gonna work, history might give Mayweather grief for The PAC fight not coming off but Golovkin is not even gonna be in the conversation….Guys CHILDISHLY pretending that Floyd’s Big and GGG is small are wasting their breath…How many years and divisions had Floyd fought in before he faced Oscar? GGG is soooooo Far down the line I’m laughing because he’s NEVER gonna be one of FMJ’s last 4 opponents..

Dyonisus, people are missing my point re GGG. I’ve been hard on him because, he’s sitting on the pot, whining but, doing nothing about it. If he can’t get Martinez, Quillin or Barker why doesn’t he bite the bullet and go for Stevenson, Hopkins or Kovalev. If it means taking the short end of the purse, then so be it. If these guys won’t fight him, then fight 4 times a year or 5 times and clean out all of their potential opponents so they have to fight him.

Hell, do something. The biggest crime in the world is to do nothing. If he does nothing then he will confirm my opinion, that he is just another whining little *****.

If he was he would have been fighting there, and stayed at that weight a long time ago. If he drops to 154 to fight Floyd, Floyd will beat him. . Stay at 160 and enjoy your undefeated record Gennady. I assure you the grass is not greener on the other side of the fence.

Thanks, Tark, for proving my point.
So, where was DEATH STAR to complain?
He was nowhere to be seen. (Still composing his books on War and Peace)!

Boxers have always gone where the dollars were. Throughout the history of boxing it wasn’t the most talented who got the shots, but the most marketable. Look at Two Ton Galento getting his shot vs Joe Louis. He was a free swinging fatty Italian American who was entertaining enough to have a large following. He swung and hit, decking Louis but got hammered in the end.

Let GGG create his own buzz in the ring and see where that takes him.

It seems the so called haters just want to see a great fight that has them on the edge of their seat and the floyd nutt huggers want to protect floyd even if its floyd fighting over matched fighters, the nutt huggers are happy and dont care about exciting fights they just wsnt floyds 0 to stay in place and thats all that matters. True boxing fans like great , exciting fights. Nothing wrong with that, but nutt huggers protecting floyd is a shame, nobodys asking floyd to fight klitschko but by listening to the nutt huggers one would think that haters want floyd go fight a hungry mountain lion when in reality land its just a fighter thats 12 lbs more. Floyds skill level takes away 12 lb weight advantages so dont cry nut huggers its going to be okay.

Posted October 1, 2013 10:50 am

Fans want to see a great fight and floyd is running out of options in his division. Floyd proved he can handle a big boxer in canelo. Whats 12 lbs ? A 12 lb weight advantage over floyd dosent mean much because noboy can even hit floyd let alone land clean shots on floyd. In lower weight classes fighters complain about 7 lbs lol, in the heavy weight division sometimes there is 70 lb wreight disadvantages. Perfect example people want klitschko to fight better opposition, is it because they want him beat or is it fans want to see a exciting fight ? I belive its the latter, we also want a fight to be at least some what unpredictable with klitschkos oppisition to have a chance so the fight is exciting. I dont think fans want floyd to lose more they just want to see floyd in a fight thats exciting and were floyds oppisition at least has a chance. We all know that over matched bouts are boring and predictible and floyd is so good its going to take a great fighter to even give floyd any trouble. We all look for those dream match up s that can never happen, but asking floyd to step up one division to at least get a compditve fight isnt asking to much considering nobodys left in his division really and floyd is almost impposible to hit flush and floyd has proven he can dominate a fighter 15 lbs heaver. It will also ad to floyds legacy and give the fans a exciting fight to watch.

Harsh Reality.., Leonard, Hearns, and Duran ALL fought at Jr. Middleweight and Middleweight when Mike McCallum fought at those weights.. But none of them ever fought McCallum. There was a lot of talk about those potential matchups, and how interesting they would be—but they didn’t have a prayer of happening.

In fact after McCallum stopped bomber Julian Jackson (29-0) to go 27-0, Mike was a more logical opponent for Hagler than the free swinging, soft chinned John Mugabi… In fact, Julian Jackson was a more dangerous opponent than Mugabi was. Jackson smashed out Terry Norris with one head shot … Norris later KO’d Mugabi in the 1st round.

Ray Leonard was stripped of the Middleweight Championship he won from Hagler for failure to defend it. Nunn, McCallum, and Jackson won the pieces of the splintered title. Leonard’s team offered Donny Lalonde millions to boil down from 175 to 168. That allow Leonard to win two titles in one night—something never allowed before. That way Leonard could defend the 168-pound title at 160 pounds … and fight whoever he wanted.

When Leonard dropped down to 154 to fight Terry Norris — he was avoiding Michael Nunn, Mike McCallum, and Julian Jackson — who were the 3 middleweight champions at that time.

@JWALES. Are you high?? Bullyweather?? when was the last time mayweather fought somebody smaller than him?? and please don’t just say Marquez? You need to educate yourself my friend. Fighters run and diet there way down to make weight. Adrien Broner walks around at 160, Danny Garcia walks around in the 150′s Hatton would blow up to the 170′s. Mayweather is one of the only fighters that fights at his natural weight. Meaning he could probably weigh in right now at 147.

Posted October 1, 2013 10:13 am

This article is retarded. Why you ask, because Mayweather fights at 147, he fought at 154 only a few times to make the big money fights (De La Hoya, Alvarez, ext). he is a natural 147 pound fighter. why should he go up to middleweight to make this fight? Why would you even write this article? If you know boxing than you know that is too much of a strain on his body. Remember the man is 36, he came into his last fight under 150, but you want him to make a GGG fight so you can see him lose?? Ridiculous article and if you agree with this writer than shame on you.

Harsh reality, Golovkin already beat many of the “stand out boxers” in the am. And Olympics. Not barely, he dominated them. While I understand as pro boxers improve, I can say that GGG is one of the most improved. I love Calzaghe but he waited for a bunch f reasons. Some reasons were his own fault like not leaving the UK to fight.

Put aside ATG and P4P best for a moment. Floyd has a handful of fights left, and one fight I’d like to see him make is with GGG. Make it a 152 pound catch weight if necessary, but make the fight. And yes, I believe that GGG wants Floyd enough to sign for the 152 pound catch weight.

IMO some writers and fans need to stick to reality,,which is PFM is a natural 140lbs that fights bigger guys at 147-154lbs due to lack of competition, not his fault he is 2 levels above everyone else, fighting even bigger guys just to make things even more difficult takes away from the perspective of watching his greatness in an even plain field,,,it’s like watching prime time 135lbs JC Chavez and asking him to fight Hagler just because he is badly beating those his size,,I can give many examples etc,,,it’s not fair to any great boxer,,PS the great Hagler never moved up,,not even once,,,and for the record I’m not a fan of PFM but I do respect his talents and skills,,and PFM, to his credit, has fought more entertaining fights as of lately,,if PFM had power and killer instincts he would be one of the greatest Fighters all time,,,but as he is now,,,in my book,, one the the greatest pure boxers,,lets just continue watching him fight guys close to his size and admire his dominance,,,peace

HBO are looking for a star, then why not GGG go out and make his own name off his own bat?

The great Joe Calzaghe did this time and again, proving himself each and every time. Champion for more than ten years, 2 weight Lineal champion.

Let GGG start making his own history before he climbs on other people’s coattails. He may be the best Middleweight in the world, but until he tells HBO to put up or shut up, he will always be a ***** to me.

Joe Calzaghe was leagues above your GGG and he had to wait years for you fools to realise this. So, what makes your pooch GGG so special?

Joe would have wiped his mush all over the four corners of the ring and beaten him up like a Canelo sparring partner and then allowed him to carry his jockstrap.

Death Star. If GGG is really a LMW then why did he not step down and challenge Cotto, Bundrage, Spinks, Canelo and Trout over the last few years for their straps? Would have made more sense than competing against duds at 160? Mundine has done this – won titles at a higher weight and then come down to compete for more. He could have started by facing Mosley and Sergio Mora, instead of p***ing into a pot and whinging like a baby? Why not take the short money if he thinks he’s so good? We know his rep, now let him prove it inside the ring like the great Joe Calzaghe did time and time again.

HARSH REALITY, GGG and Kovalev have trained together and I would think they fought in the amateurs with GGG winning. They’ve sparred at Abel Sanchez’s gym with Golovkin getting the better of Kovalev.

Golovkin is a level above Kovalev IMO. They had to stop the sparring since Kovalev showed too much respect for GGG and was afraid of him according to Sanchez. In the amateurs guys Kovalev wasn’t on that elite level. GGG was.

sredmond you’re going to have to come a lot better than that silly. next time try and make it a little less obvious when you’re using an alt. and i guarantee you are sredmond. 100 percent!

here’s a few tips.

try and choose a user name that’s a little less similar than the ones you usually use.

try not to post in a style that’s so similar too your usual one.

try to avoid displaying too many of your character traits and flaws too, traits and flaws which are instantly recognizable. such as

twisting people’s words. lying through your teeth. claiming false victories. using poor analogies to try and expose false ”double standards” all the time. trying to fool others into believing you’re not as thick as a plank by using literary references or writing phrases in a foreign languages.

don’t give the game away at the first hurdle by being too angry or confrontational for no reason silly. basically just be a little more intelligent about it next time. it was way, way too obvious. you gave the game away at every single stage. stage 1. stage 2. stage 3. stage 4 etc. and you don’t need be no columbo to work it out either. you made it so obvious inspector clouseau could’ve seen though it straight away.

coming at me all angry and confrontational the very first death star posts after he made you look like a complete retard the last time he was on here. simple simon you. that’s child’s play you wally. lolz.

that last time i exposed you as a compulsive liar. a completely clueless buffoon who didn’t know what the hell you were talking about. a gigantic hypocrite. a cowardly ducker who refused to answer of the questions or challenges i’d been posing you since the beginning of the debate. how you never once backed up any of your claims with a single ounce of proof, despite the fact that i’d been doing so every step of the way. and now you’re at my throat, all irrationally butt-hurt and overly angry and confrontational and trying to claim a false victory again in your own dead giveaway style. lolz

remember how i also exposed the pathetic infantile tactics you use to try and deflect away from the fact i was hammering your ass. such as lying. creating straw man arguments by twisting people’s words to mean things they never said and then trying to claim a false victory by arguing against the meaning you distorted it to. and i proved all of this emphatically beyond any shadow of a doubt. in fact it was such an overwhelming and emphatic drubbing you did a runner. lolz. there was no coming back from it, which is why you have had to resort to this. the only problem is you weren’t bright enough to pull it off. and now i’ve just exposed you again. pretending to be a joe calzaghe fan now? lolz. that was you being clever right? lolz.oh lawdy. i wish everything in life was this transparent. actually come to think of it no i don’t. there would be no fun to be had if everything was this easy. exposed. lolz.

HARSH REALITY, GGG should do exactly what you said. a belt at 154 and then go after Mayweather. I think he would if there was a remote possibility of actually getting the fight with Floyd. I think there is no chance to see that fight. Why would Floyd fight this guy when he avoided a former flyweight like the plague for several years?

GGG ain’t no Canelo. He’s got 350 amateur fights, most of them at the elite level. Beating B-level guys like Kovalev and A-level guys like Korobov and different Cubans. The US amateurs had no business being in the same ring as these guys. Just different levels.

Floyd knows that GGG is for real and will cut off the ring and deal out punishment for 12 full rounds. That ain’t healthy for a 36 yo man calling himself “Money”, who’s finding it more and more difficult to find the right words with each day.

Count on GGG ruling the MW division and then fighting the likes of Ward and Kessler.

Well, let his poster boy GGG step up a few pounds and face his other poster boy Kovalev! we are only talking 15lbs, according to his logic. The winner will be known worldwide and as Death Star bleats, (but Never answers people’s questions) it will be GGG last man standing, he can then drop weight to 154, which is his natural poundage and get the MONEY fight with Floyd.

Sugar Ray Leonard stepped up a class to Jnr Middleweight to take the WBA title from Ayub Kalule in 1981. He immediately stepped back down and beat Thomas Hearns to unify the World Welterweight titles in September 1981.

I didn’t hear you CHUMPS screaming he was a Jnr Middleweight and asking him tol defend against The Bodysnatcher!

All you people calling Mayweather a Jnr Middleweight cause he has the titles are deluded. The world bodies will give him time to decide whether he wants to stay at the higher weight or defend at welterweight. We had same situation with Pacquiao and throughout the years.

Boxing is a business first, sport second and is all about the dollars. If he can make the dollars on GGG next, then he’ll take it to the bank.

The greatest, Joe Calzaghe held both the lineal Super Middle and Light Heavyweight titles after beating Hopkins and thought about defending both for a while! but was given time to make his choice. He went where the dollars were at.

Oh, yes. Joe would have smashed GGG and Golovkin to pieces. They are good, but not yet ready. He would have schooled them both.

Jose Sulliman will fix it for Chavez Jr will land a fight with WBC titlist Sakio Bika in the new year. GGG will probably fight Martin Murray in Europe as Murray has visa problems in the USA, while PBF/Khan is an 80% done deal @ vegas.
GGG VS S.G.Martinez is the one I wanna see, but won’t happen this side of next Summer.

Void will never come near Golovkin. Void is not faster than Golovkin and Void does not punch nearly as hard. Golovkin will knock Void out, but Void is not stupid enough to fight Golovkin.

But Wrd will not consider going down one wight or even catchweight. He only keeps calling GGG out at 168

GGG though well-skilled will play second fiddle when he’s in a fight with his superior(Floyd), his only chance like all those before him is his power, he can’t match Floyd’s speed, footwork, ring IQ etc. So what if GGG can’t land anything significant? The guy is even slower than Canelo, he can’t keep up with Floyd and won’t keep up with Floyd, GGG will be thoroughly schooled if the fight happens.

Another reason that GGG aint fought at 154 is because most of the best ones are with GBP/SHowtime

GGG will be fighting four times this year so next year he should fight Chavez, Barker, Sturm, and most importantly Sergio. The sanctioning bodies need to force these fights and quit catering to the duck walk

Yeah HBO and my man Ward were hyping Chavez like madmen but at this point Chavez has no belt and no real hype but many Mexicans will show their PPV patriotism. It would also be a somewhat humerus fight in its own way

mr gav

Now this would be a real 50 50 fight. The big issue is weight Floyd is to small to get in fighting weight for middle weight and ggg is a big middle weight who is capable of moving up so ggg would have to go down to light middle. Floyd though great is very smart if this fight goes ahead he will have every advantage and weight would be in his favour as ggg will be severely weight drained giving flloyd a big advantage. This fight will be big though ggg is from khavagstan the 8th biggest country and would have a large fan base from the east of Europe and Germany. And any fight Floyd Is in is big. This would be a big test for Floyd probably the biggest

Imagine if someone like GGG beat Fairyweather? Redmond wouldn’t last a week before he put a gun in his mouth and ended it all. Its bad enough for him that two white men will fight this week for the most prestigious titles in boxing, if a Eurasian beat his little thug, that would just push him over the edge.

Of course Golden Boy always sets things up for Floyd their golden goose but I only gave Garcia rounds 4,7,8,9, & 11. The knock down occurred because Matthysse was thrown by the back of the head into the ropes were he got tangled and smashed. That round should have went to Mathysse.

A rematch is in order but again Golden Boy and Haymonset it up where only Garcia would be allowed a rematch, which is the reason that so many fighters leave GBP. If they dont give him the rematch, Matthysse should go the lesser evil Top Rank where he has a whole lot more top guys to face at 140.

Let’s face it, Mayweather is not going anywhere near Golovkin at any weight. Golovkin beats the crap out of him all day long and he knows it.
Mayweather runs around for a few rounds, but GGG will get him, too smart, too powerful for Mayweather by far.

he won’t go near GGG because GGG would knock him out. and the flomos will spin it to make it sound like it makes no sense because “GGG is not a big name” and “It makes no financial sense” like theyre his business manager and get a cut of his pay. These types of “fans” are content to watch him in sparring matches on $70 PPV against guys who are of no threat and trying to convince squares that he is the “GOAT” and “Boxing will miss him when he’s gone.” Pffffft.

GGG KO PBF but GGG fights for HBO thus once again the greedy promoters ruin it for everyone

TARK

Sredmond.., You picked Peterson to beat Matthysse.. You picked Matthysse to KO Danny Garcia.. You picked Floyd to shred, paint, smoke, and KO Canelo.. None of those things happened.. You basically are guessing because you have no idea what you’re talking about.. I always said Floyd would win and the fight would go 12. There was nothing even close to a knockdown in that fight.

Golovkin is a much better boxer and puncher than Canelo.. Canelo couldn’t even KO Matt Hatton.. Canelo doesn’t KO ANY title challengers unless they come from 2 divisions down like Josesito Lopez.. Golovkin has KO’d the last 14 opponents he had, including guys who floored Martinez and gave him Hell.. GGG has 350 amateur fights vs about 30 for Canelo.. He’s a master. Canelo is a comparative novice. GGG won over 150 amateur fights in a row.

Before Rigondeaux fought ATG Nonito Donaire, did people know how good Rigo was??? Even Floyd picked Donaire to beat Rigo. Golovkin is damned good, even though he hasn’t had the chance to fight an ATG yet… When and if Martinez fights GGG he’ll get KTFO.

SREDMOND…. We might see GGG tested if anyone would fight him!! He’s called out everyone from 54 to 68..and no one with a names getting in line. And, to say he does nothing better then Alverez is a stretch. Everyones got a opinion, but I say the guys 1000 percent legit! Ya don’t have nearly 400 amature bouts, and only lose 4 0r 5, and never been off his feet as a pro or amature! I see him as a modern day Kostya Tszu/ Julio Caesar Chavez Sr. GGG has made it well known he can make 54… Hopefully Showtime will lean on team Mayweather to make it happen!

Neil, can we see Golovkin prove his mettle against some better comp? Ishida, Ouma, Rosado and a sliding Macklin(his best win) have shown us he is the Keith Thurman of his weight class… When’s he gonna knock off a Murray, Barker or Martinez? And Floyd just fought the MOST decorated 154 pounder in the world who was 23, Martinez has still not been taken so if he were gonna face a MW (which ain’t happening) why would he go after a guy on the fringes??

Posted September 30, 2013 11:58 pm 


SREDMOND

Absent power Golovkin does NOT have a single attribute superior to Canelo Alvarez and certainly NOT Floyd Mayweather he’s another guy looking to land a BIG shot he’s NOT fast, NOT some awesome counter puncher nor Ring Technician… The Anti-Mayweather faction is desperate they now believe that piling on the pounds is the answer to their 17 year nightmare watching FMJ hand out boxing lesson after boxing lesson… History is NEVER gonna pair the names GGG and Mayweather even Pacquaio which was a natural clash has receded from frenzied debate post Marquez….Danny Garcia deserves a Mayweather bout before GGG, Garcia is CLEARLY top dog at 140 and he he wants a serving of Mayweather pie at 147 then all the best to him he earned it against the perceived most dangerous fighter in his division….Golovkin is beating Tomato Cans look at his next opponent!!

Posted September 30, 2013 11:53 pm 


Neil (Pomy)

Floyd might possibly fight Martinez because he is on the slide and a natural light middleweight ….. Floyd wont fight Golovkin …. too big and too fresh. I am not critising Floyd for this it is just the way it is. Floyd will never compete at middleweight ….. it is a step too far. If they met at 160 id pick Golovkin. Floyd could probably handle anyone at 154 but at 160 he is pushing it and golovkin is a beast ….. and a highly skilled one.

Posted September 30, 2013 11:53 pm 


SREDMOND

This article was written for the reactionary dullards on ESB… If Floyd Mayweather was gonna choose a MW opponent it would logically be Sergio Martinez for the following reasons.. 1.) Martinez is the MOST decorated MW fighter in the world today, Lineal and Ring Champ, he has actually been on PPV with Chavez and he has actually fought at 154 before…GGG’s resume is WEAK to say the least and he’s taking a step back in comp from his last bout!!! Outside hardcore fans no one really knows him or his opponents… Fact is Golovkin has done NOTHING to force or deserve a Mayweather fight it’s simply NOT happening… The crys of Lion King and the rest who wanna see Money May disadvantage himself against a MW are gonna go unhedged.. Golovkin might prove over time he’s the man at 160 but as of now these KOs over LOW level comp have him being BADLY overhyped as some sort of “Boogeyman” or historical figure… Get real he’s right on par with Canelo and Broner BOTH of whom beat more vetted World Class fighters than GGG….This is reality

Mayweather will fight Khan. In Vegas. Next Spring. And knock him out of course.

Mayweather will never fight GGG. He’s far too dangerous. He has to protect his precious 0 so he claim to be one of the greats. Which of course he isn’t. He’s a cherry picker and a ducker.

GGG will clean up at MW and then later move up to SMW.

Mayweather will pad his record with easy wins until he reaches 50 – 0 and then pissaway all his money on gambling and his fairweather friends who will eventually disappear once all the money has gone, leaving Floyd to consider a come back in his mid-40′s which he will do and then he’ll get the living heck beaten out of him by some young club level fighter who would never have beaten him in his prime.

In contrast GGG will become the number 1 fighter in the world, make a ton of money and retire somewhere in Europe.

but let’s just pretend like ggg is this big mw like you dolts claim, why can’t mayweather fight someone who is smaller than mayweather’s last opponent and walks around at only 3 or 4lbs more than victor ortiz weighed when he fought mayweather? after all he’s the greatest of all times right?

here’s some legends who took far bigger risks than that.

harry greb started out at ww and fought and beat gene tunney at hw.

sam langford beat joe gans at lightweight and beat harry wills, joe jeanette and sam mcvey at hw

roy jones started out at 154 and beat ruiz at hw

henry armstrong held the featherweight, lightweight, and welterweight simultaneously (in the era of only 8 divisions) and fought the mw champion to a draw

duran started out at bantam/super bantamweight and beat iran barkley who was a gigantic mw.

thomas hearns started out at 147 and beat vigil hill at lh and went up to cw and was still knocking mofos out

billy conn started out at lightweight and came very close to beating the absolutely murderous punching wonderful hw, arguably the greatest, joe louis

mickey walker started out at about 144 lbs and fought legends all the way from ww to hw, big hws and very hard punching ones

Georges Carpentier started out at 147 and fought legendary fighters right up to hw

Mayweather will fight who ever makes the most sense. GGG, has to be way down on the list as far as sense goes. I’m going to start going on GGG, sites and demand that he leaves HBO, and starts fighting at 154 to prove he really want the Mayweather fight.

Posted September 30, 2013 10:14 pm 


Death Star

the thing is i’m not even ggg fighting mayweather in his next fight you dolts. he could do it in a couple of fights but you little scaredy-cats would rather see mayweather fight not threatening opponents like amir glass jaw khan. rofl.

“If Canelo or Mayweather wanted to fight Golovkin at 154, we would just need to know ahead of time so I can start dropping him a little quicker,” Sanchez said. “Right now I’m not even dropping him. It’s so easy (making weight). I’m talking (he weighs) 167 lbs before training. That is his walk around weight. We did say that he’d fight anybody from 154 to 168 lbs and in those ranges I don’t think that anybody at 154 lbs goes the distance with him.”

While some may scoff at Sanchez’ claims that Golovkin would stop anyone at junior middleweight inside of 12 rounds, the proof is in the pudding that GGG’s power is paralyzing and no boxer once the bell rings. With 24 knockouts in 27 fights while campaigning at middleweight, a drop down in weight shouldn’t sap the power from his punches. And that spells danger for anyone, including Mayweather and Alvarez.

But the reality is that Golovkin is a huge risk for either fighter and it wouldn’t be a surprise if both Mayweather and Alvarez steer clear of Golovkin for as long as they can. But eventually, avoidance may not be an option as worthy opponents for Mayweather or Canelo will dwindle and public demand for either to face Golovkin will come to an inaudible roar. They may not face him in the near future (or in Mayweather’s case, ever), but Golovkin is willing to wait and continue to bury everyone in his path.

“I think after three fights, or two fights, I will go to junior middleweight because of Floyd and Saul Alvarez,” Golovkin said. “Those are great fighters. Miguel Cotto is also very good. Why not? I feel great and junior middleweight is no problem for me. Maybe in the next two years I will go to super middleweight.”

It’s about the MONEY, GGG fights on HBO but ISN’T an HBO fighter. Showtime just broke the PPV record for fight revenue and garnered 2.2M PPV buys, making them the BIG BOYS on the boxing block, with HBO coming in 2nd.

Showtime will LOOK for the BIGGEST revenue EARNING fight for Money Mayweather and that’s not Alexander, Garcia, Matthysee or Khan.

Pacquiao MUST beat Rios dominantly, but it WON’T happen because Team Pacquiao including Roach are NAIVE believing that Rios is JUST another Margarito, which he IS NOT. Also Alex Ariza who KNOWS all of Pacquiao’s weaknesses and secrets and Freddie Roach’s is working for Bam Bam Rios.

There are ONLY 2 BIG, BIG fights for Mayweather, which will pay him $40M -$50M: GGG and Sergio Martinez! Mayweather will fight both of them next year at a 155lb catchweight!

Mayweather may not deserve the 154 pound belts he got from Canelo. But they put them on the line because 154 is the max limit not the minimum. But truthfully, Canelo defended, and lost, those belts at 165 against a 149 pound fighter.

‘Doubters note that Rosado has been fighting recently at junior middleweight. His co-promoter, Russell Peltz of Main Events, cautions us not to fall pray to that reasoning.

“Rosado is bigger than Golovkin,” said Peltz, who expects Rosado to dictate the pace and believes his kid is the best foe Golovkin has fought. He also, “I don’t think Rosado has any respect outside the East Coast

FMJ can hold as many trinkets as he likes but he doesn’t deserve to be the 154lb Champion because he didn’t fight Canelo at 154lb. Fight and win against a true 154lb champ at 154lb and he can be crowned #1. It makes a mockery out of the sport with this kind of catchweight rubbish while still boasting to be a certain calibre of champion. FMJ and Paquiao should be called multiple world catchweight champs.

As far as size goes, GGG is obviously naturally bigger, but Mayweather would bring him down to at least 154, get the gloves he wants, ring size, canvas tension, and all set up in his favor. I think GGG, would have a heck of a shot, but it wouldn’t be easy, and he wouldn’t destroy Mayweather, cause Mayweather isn’t a stationary target. Actually Mayweather has a reach advantage over GGG, and he would use that to his advantage. But really all this talk is irrelevant because this fight is way too far apart from having a chance to be made. For those of you that are aching for this fight, good luck, I’ll tune in if it does.

I hope GGG, leaves HBO soon, so some leverage to actually make such a fight would even be possible. HBO just lost a heck of a lot of fighters through the fallout with GBP. GGG, has star written all over him, and he potentially has more upside than Mayweather, at this point. HBO won’t let go of GGG, easily, and Mayweather has a minimum of 4 fights left with Showtime. Unless HBO and Showtime get together for an unprecedented PPV card, this fight isn’t happening for at least another 30 months.

You guys that keep calling FJM a WW are dead wrong. You need to come to grips with reality and recognize that FMJ just stepped up a weight class, to Jr. MW, when he beat Canelo.

FMJ is not a LEGIT Jr. MW, holds THREE MAJOR 154lbs titles, is the lineal and Ring 154lbs Champion, and is ranked the #1 154lbs fighter in the the world.

So why on earth do you Floydiots keep insisting that FMJ is just a little WW??? Please stop lying to yourselves and everyone else.

“Yuri, mayweather would beat golovkin easy.”

If that true why you Mayweather girls so scared of Golvokin fighting Mayweather??
If Mayweather such great champion you be happy for him to fight Golovkin. But every time you make more and more excuses. Golovkin fight anyone from 154 to 168! Anywhere in world! Mayweather only fight in Vegas! Mayweather only fight who he can beat! Mayweather always run from fighter who can beat him! Not just Golovkin. Great champion travel world like Ali and prove they best against best not run away from dangerous fighter like little girl. Mayweather have 154 belt. He can fight Golovkin at 154. Or he coward! Mayweather run away from Golovkin.

”To me, Golovkin is a junior middleweight, he hasn’t been touched by a Quillin”

Peter Quillin’s manager

”Golovkin is more suited to the light-middleweight division than anything”

Eddie Hearn Darren Barkers promoter

‘Doubters note that Rosado has been fighting recently at junior middleweight. His co-promoter, Russell Peltz of Main Events, cautions us not to fall pray to that reasoning.

“Rosado is bigger than Golovkin,” said Peltz, who expects Rosado to dictate the pace and believes his kid is the best foe Golovkin has fought. He also, “I don’t think Rosado has any respect outside the East Coast

“Gabriel is a big junior middleweight and Gennady is a small middleweight,” said Tom Loeffler, Golovkin’s promoter.

“Showtime seeing the PPV upside of a Mayweather/GGG fight will force the issue of this fight being made.” Is GGG, going to be fighting on Showtime soon? If GGG, beats Stevens into the canvas (as expected) will HBO be willing to drop GGG? Does anyone here really think HBO, will be in the mood to hand Showtime GGG, any time soon? And finally is GGG, going to start fighting at 154 soon, or is this one of those fantasy fights, that is a lot further from happening then several of other fights for both guys here. IF GGG, is going to fight Mayweather, ever things are going to have to change quite a bit from the way things are now.

use your eyes you blind retards. you can see ggg is a small mw. he has a small frame. the reason he fights at 160 is because he’s not a big weight cutter like many fighters of today.

Crap article…no way Mayweather fights GGG. Why should he? The f’n guy is a middleweight, Floyd is a welterweight. Floyd will be fighting Danny Garcia next IMO. Khan needs to beat Alexander if he is to be considered credible enough to fight Floyd. I’d like to see Keith Thurman get a shot at Floyd, but he needs a few more fights.

Posted September 30, 2013 9:22 pm 


Woop Woop

This is the perfect fight for GGG. Exactly the sort of fight he likes, a blown up Welterweight ready for slaughter. Just like his next fight against the #16 Middleweight. He keeps ducking all the champs that call him out but then name drops and makes unrealistic challenges to bluff the gullible. GGG is a fake and a fraud who has beaten nobody while prancing around in a World Title Belt that was given to him. Chooooo Chooooo all aboard suckers the GGG Hype Train is rolling.

Posted September 30, 2013 9:21 pm 


terror tim

Stop looking to the middleweight division for the fights. Mayweather isn’t a middleweight and he isn’t going up there. If he would he would have fought Martinez before. Garcia is actually the most deserving opponent, he has no chance but still is the most deserving. JMM is a better fighter and has grown into being real WW now and a rematch might be the most competitive fight that could be made. Probably not get much different a result but the opponents for Mayweather aren’t plentiful. Don’t drain someone who is a middleweight down to 154 just to make a fight. Make fights that make sense.

Posted September 30, 2013 9:16 pm

If Floyd wants to fight GGG fine.. But he doesn’t.. And GGG is after Martinez and Quillin, and when he stops them he’s going after Ward or whoever is at 168 at that time..

The landscape will look different in 4 years. Floyd will be gone. Golovkin may be number one P4P. Or maybe Rigondeaux, Kovalev, or Mikey Garcia … They’re all great fighters.

I remember when Roy Jones Jr was number one P4P.. Roydiots were saying Roy was the best ever.. WOOO HOOOO 50-OOO.. Then Antonio Tarvers’ left fist hit Roy upside the jaw.. 10 seconds later everything changed.. The birds still tweeted.. The flowers still bloomed.. The sun still rose in the east.. But Roy was yesterday’s news.. How can you get caught with an overhand left a tenth of a second after you land your own left??? But it wasn’t Roy. It was Antonio. He threaded the needle.

Golovkin is the future.

Too bad I have already proven your theory wrong on GGG weighing less than most Jr Middles. He comes in around 170. Macklin came in around 170, Canelo comes in around 168. So not sure why you keep saying that. Funny cause I remember after proving you wrong you changed it saying it only matters what you weigh at the weigh in. Oh and when Rosado took the challenge they wanted a catch weight till Rosado said no I’ll take you at 160 so there would be no excuses.

No one ever gives Danny Garcia credit, but the guy just keeps winning. Not saying he could beat Floyd, but he’d be competitive. Yes, there’s lots of money to be made fighting Kahn, but Kahn hasn’t proven he deserves to be in the ring with Floyd. As for GGG, Floyd doesn’t have to fight at 154 to prove anything. Why the boxing public expects fighters to keep moving up in weight to prove how good they is beyond me — in other words, it’s a bunch of crap. All it does is wear out the good/great little fighters much faster. I’d much rather they stay at a comfortable weight and dominate for years, instead of getting beaten up/burned out in a couple/few years or fights.

Once again no proof that GGG can even make 154. Fighters say they can make a weight and then after they lose they say they where drained. Always the same response when it comes to a Floud fight. Oh Floyd would struggle, oh he won caus e he was hand picked, his opponent was drained, he was too you and had no experience. Haters will never be satisfied. That’s why they are known as haters. What’s funny is if Floyd actually fought GGG and won, there would still be haters. A lot of them are calling him cowards for not fighting GGG, someone who has t done much yet and would change their tune and say GGG wasn’t experienced enough. He only had 400 amateur fights, he needed more pro fights

If GGG wants a real fight let him go 8 pounds higher and fight Ward or 15 pounds higher and fight Adonis or maybe Kovalev I’m sure these fights will be great whilst GGG will be able to establish a name for himself and make some money in the process. GGG isn’t remotely close to getting a fight with Floyd because he isn’t worth it, can’t fill a venue and he has never headed a PPV event, the guys simply brings nothing to the table not even an olympic gold medal.

It ain’t gonna happen. I’m impressed by GGG, but let’s face it, he has no fanbase outside of the hardcore fans, has never fought at ’54 and has fought absoultely nobody. Everybody thought that Matthysse was The Funk too, but he was exposed as just a pedestrian champ. GGG got his ass kicked by a washed-up, soft punching jr. middle for 6 rounds (Ouma) and Mayweather supposedly beat Ouma so badly he ran him out of the ring in sparring.

GGG is NOT next..

Danny Garcia is next, or should be next.. Pacquiao will be next after that.. Maybe Matthysse can squeeze in next.. After that?

Provodnikov… Bradley… Marquez… Alexander… even possibly Khan.

But never Golovkin… If Floyd wanted to win a middleweight title he would have gone after Jermain Taylor… Taylor was a middleweight champ Floyd was interested in because if his leaky defense… rhythmic herky-jerkyness… slowness… hesitancy… and timidness.

Will Golovkin come to 154??? I doubt it… Every world-class boxer who’s attempted to come down in weight after being at a weight for a such long time has been unsuccessful… Moving down in weight robs you of your strength and power … and makes you slow and hittable.

I guess if they did fight and Mayweather got KO’d (as I think would happen) his fans could always say Floyd was old, it would never have happened to a prime Mayweather. But I have to agree with the earlier comments, I can’t Mayweather beating GGG. He is a monster. He closes down fighters very fast and does not give them time to box and that is Mayweather’s main skill. He likes time to show his skills. GGG would never give him the space or time to do that. GGG would be on him right from the first bell. I cannot see Mayweather lasting the distance with a boxer as skilled and as fast and as brutal as GGG.

The fight will never happen and if it ever did, I still favour Floyd by UD though it won’t be easy. Dirrell with no power and limited defensive skills Beat GGG in the Amatuers and he was robbed, GGG has never fought a boxer has skilled has Money.

This could all be put on the shelf if Mayweather just comes out and says “I`m a welterweight, that is where I am fighting”.

If he keeps dipping his toe in the waters beyond that, then it`s only natural that guys who feel they can make that weight start seeing $$$’s and out their name forwards.

I completely understand if guys want to say GGG, Martinez etc are too big for Mayweather – everyone has a limit, I just don`t believe he should be called #1 JMW in the world if he is going to run back down to WW when those guys start taking an interest.

Mayweather is not fighting GGG. There is no logical reason for him to do so – both financially or legacy wise. Nice try. Maybe the usual suspects like Bears, Death Star, Yuri, and others will fill the comment section with their laughable accusations that a welterweight is afraid to fight a middleweight. How about an article pointing out how GGG didn’t fight anybody of merit and needs to clean out his own division and then move up. That’s what true middleweights do.

Exactly. First nobody knows if he can make 154. Dawson said he could make 168 then after being dominated people say he was weight drained. Canelo said he could make 152 and after people say he was weigh drained. He would need to have at least one fight at 154 to prove he can make 154. And then the so called fan base of GGG. I believe he is the truth at 160. I think he will run 160. But only the hard core fans know who he is. A PPV fight with GGG at this point at time will not do big numbers. It would probably do the same as the Guerrero fight.
