Sremond.., I said Canelo would be a tough fight for Floyd, but that was only if he entered the ring in the same shape he was against Trout…and not look terribly parched like and weight drained like he didn’t look for Trout.

Trout and Canelo were almost equally weight drained when they fought and that’s why is was a small problem for them to be active and effective offensively. It was a slow fight. Canelo landed some hard blows on Trout that he couldn’t land on Floyd because Floyd was fighting at a comfortable weight and his reactions were better than Trout’s for that particular opponent.

Trout beat Cotto as badly as Floyd beat him but didn’t get beaten up as much as Floyd did… Trout barely had a mark on him after the Cotto fight…and he didn’t need giant Q-Tips up the nose to staunch the flow of the red stuff, like Floyd did. Floyd was less weight compromised vs Trout and his reactions were faster. Canelo had his worst performance ever against Floyd — but it was only one round off my predicted result.

You don’t always give your peak performance.. Sometimes Nolan Ryan got blown off the mound, sometimes he threw a no-hitter.. Floyd just had his peak fight against Canelo … Ask Floyd Sr.

Floyd is the GOAT… Doesn’t mean he couldn’t catch a left hook on the chin from Danny Garcia and go down for the count.

Good god I hope this fight doesn’t happen. Mayweather has so much more skill and Kahn has a glass jaw, won’t even be close. More importantly won’t be entertaining. End this stupid cold war and give me Pacquiao Mayweather Damnit!

Tark, you said “Canelo would be Floyd’s toughest fight” after Garcia loses you will discuss his training camp as if you were there… You will discuss his moving up in weight blah, blah,blah…. You think GGGs an ATG for beating Stevens type boxers but suddenly Garcias Mayweathers hardest fight??! HAHAHAHAHA Garcias a very good strong young guy but he’s technically gonna be outta his league… You will be back making excuses in NO time ..

So Mayweather should be penalized for fighting in the weight class he’s most suited? Now I’ve heard it all why not send Canelo a letter and tell him to move up to 175? Or 168? I guess we are supposed to feel bad for him? I’m the wrong guy for this

Tark, Floyd USED to make weight like EVERY other boxer till he reached his max and basically fought his opponents no matter how big they were the night of the bout… Oscar, Canelo, Cotto, Ortiz….. Miley Garcia was 142 by the time he fought, not far off what FMJ brings to the ring… If fighting at basically a “same day weight”
Is the formula then why are these other boxers not doing it? Why do they balloon between bouts? Because they are NOT disciplined
Like FMJ or Hopkins…and for the record Canelo blew the scale against Matthew Hatton….
He got beat by an older boxing master…

SREDMOND

Tark, NO I don’t accept that as an EXCUSE it’s GROSSLY overplayed… Canelo Alvarez was FINE against ALL the other boxers he faced bringing himself to the ring between 147-154 (Trout 153.5) if this is SOOO DEADLY rigorous then explain to us why he has engaged in some form of this process over 40 times as a pro? Anyone who is honest knows it’s because he knows during the intervening 24 hours he’s gonna go up as much as 15 to 20 pounds
That’s intended to be used in the ring…WHAT sanctioning body is forcing Canelo to fight at 154?? NONE he deserves 00000000 sympathy he lost to a 36 year old guy who began at 130… He lost because Floyd’s a SUPER elite, once per 2 generation champion, he lost because at birth Mayweather was gifted with Reflexes
And speed that set him apart…

Ray Ray..,

Danny Garcia is not only bigger, but he’s taller and thicker than Floyd.. I don’t care if he fights one division below Floyd.. He weighs into the ring more than Floyd does for a fight at 154.. So does Matthysse.. These guys put their body through repeated weight making ordeals and Floyd doesn’t.. Even Austin Trout weighed into the ring at 171 for his Canelo fight.. That’s 17 pounds and extremely hard to do.. You don’t think that weakens the crap out of you???

Floyd doesn’t have to worry about making weight for any fight..

The one time Floyd agreed to fight at 144 he weighed in at 146 — and paid a $600,000 dollar fine like it was pocket change — rather than compromise himself physically one iota.. Canelo COULD have paid a million dollar fine and come in at 154.. I guess winning wasn’t that important to him.. It is for Floyd.

Danny is a welterweight fighting at jr welterweight… Floyd is a welterweight who sometimes fights at 154… But doesn’t bulk up like most guys would and fights at a comfortable weight.

Mayweather vs Garcia could be Floyd’s toughest fight.. Danny wouldn’t be weight drained. He’d be super powerful … and have a chance of landing one of those brutal left hooks..

I’m not picking Danny BTW.. Don’t get that stupid idea.. But it’s the most logical fight out there and nobody is talking about it … Let’s DO it.

Mayweathers nobody’s physical Jr MW
That’s a joke! The guys gonna come to the ring fight no more than 150 which is as LOW as you can get with a modern WW fighter… Matthysee at 140 is a harder puncher than Floyd so Garcia should be fine.. He’s not facing a monster puncher and besides of you want to face the P4P King you gotta come and get it..

No one was crying for Alvarez when he was dropping down in weight then beating everyone including Austin Trout… Minute he books a LOSS to FMJ the pity party starts!!! Had Alvarez 15 pounds heavier and 13 years younger beat the soon to be 37 year old Mayweather I wonder if there would be such an outpouring of Sadness for the older fighter?? I seriously doubt it !!!! Point is that Floyd Mayweather is NOT in the ring to lose, he comes prepared fight night he does not let HUMONGOUS distractions stop him from getting the wins, jail etc… This is an amazing fighter he’s more competitive than anyone absent his foes realize…

Canelos desire to “walk around at 172
And fight at 154 is because he enjoys a nice advantage over his opponents especially those like Lopez, Cotto and Gomez who were more suited to lower divisions… Trying to pivot off his “walk around weight” is laughable because he hit the scale at 153.5 against Trout and a mere 1.5 pounds lower against the FAR smaller Mayweather who he had 15 pounds in fight night…
What happened??? This formula allowed him to best Trout and bomb out over 40 other boxers but against Floyd the SAME thing happens!!! Nullification, speed and a historically superior defense on par or beyond the best in history… Mayweathers about to be 37 and you guys are still making excuses, it’s OLD and this is why GGG and these MW’s deserve NO shot and won’t get one… It’s a lose lose for FMJ, he outboxed some lead footed MW at 154 and the LAMES will say “GGG looked parched, he was dead on the scales” same excuses different LOSER…45-0 Mayweather has stuck it to his detractors worse than anyone…
It’s a beautiful sight to behold!!

Of course Canelo was drained. He walks around at 175 lbs and had to come down to a weight he hadn’t made in almost 3 years, which obviously would’ve been exacerbated by the fact that his body is still growing and that he would’ve trained harder for a fight of that magnitude. All that energy expended during training needs to be replenished but the kid was barely able to eat all throughout camp. He was living on small portions of rabbit food for goodness sake.

He already has major problems with stamina as it is because of having to drain down to a weight he shouldn’t be at. He can’t maintain any kind of pace at all, Floyd obviously knew making him boil down to 152 would only exacerbate his stamina problem even more. Why the hell do you think he made him do it if he didn’t think it was going to have an adverse effect on Canelo and give him a big advantage? A healthy fully fit fighter who is comfortable at the weight should be able to maintain a high pace for the entire duration of 12 rounds, but Canelo can only fight in spurts.

Look at how drained he looked at the weigh in. It took him about 15 minutes to make his way on to the stage and it’s hardly a coincidence he immediately rushed for a chair and sat down for most of the time he was up there. The stage was packed full of people but the only one who was sitting down was the guy who was struggling like mad to get down to a weight he hadn’t fought at in almost 3 years and had been existing on a rabbit diet for the past 7 or 8 weeks. You do the math.

Floyd Mayweather

“De La Hoya – Pacquiao fights him at a catch-weight. Cotto – he fights him at a catchweight. When I fought De La Hoya, I said ‘give him to me at 154.’ With Cotto – ‘give him to me at 154.’ Give me the guys where they are comfortable at their weight so there are no excuses.

“I look at Miguel Cotto as an undefeated fighter because he faced Pacquiao, but Pacquiao caught him at a catch weight. He wasn’t the best Miguel Cotto. He was drained. He wasn’t hydrated”

And Leonard Ellerbe on Cotto vs Pacquiao:

“He was a dead man walking when he went into the ring,” Ellerbe said. “The casual fan doesn’t know what difference one or two pounds can make when a fighter is already down to weight. Fighters know.”

Super middleweight champion Andre Ward believes that Canelo’s struggles to cut weight were evident after studying his demeanor.

“Canelo didn’t look good yesterday,” Ward stated, speaking from the Fashion Show Mall during a meet and greet for the fans on Saturday afternoon. “It’s a big fight and you come that close to your opponent; you saw how Floyd was hyped up, full of energy. Even if you don’t have energy because you’re making weight, like I’ve never seen a guy go on a stage and sit down.

“That concerned me, that even if he blows up tonight, the back half of the twelve round fight is where I think Mayweather is going to step on the gas and it could get ugly,” Ward added.

”Problem is Floyd doesn’t get tired. And we’ve seen canelo fade in fights before. Having to take off that extra two pounds is. People think it’s just two pounds but when you already struggling to make 154 that extra two pounds is a lot. He’s going to put on a lot of weight but he’s not going to be able to put on the right kind of weight just in 24 hours So he’s gonna feel the fact that he’s, you know,stripped his body, cutting his muscles to get to 152”

Ward then issued a bold statement, hinting that an eventual TKO may be in store for Mayweather.

“It’s odd, because when you see that, you know this guy’s been having some serious weight issues,” said Ward. “It’s not just ‘I’m hungry, I’m a little bit dehydrated.’ There’s some serious weight issues and Floyd Mayweather is not the guy to have weight issues with when you fade down the stretch because he gets stronger. It’s kind of eyebrow-raising when I say he could potentially stop Canelo but I think a late-round stoppage is not out of the question.”

Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe said it was simply the “A-side” fighter getting the upside over the “B-side” fighter. Mayweather usually fights at 147 pounds.

“We just took advantage of a situation. It’s no different from basketball, football or baseball,” he said. “You’re always going to put your opposition at a disadvantage, if you can. You break ‘em down and you go in for the kill.

Leonard Ellerbe and Floyd – “We don’t care what Canelo weighs come fight night. Skills pay the bills.”

So why the catchweight then?

Tark, you along with Bears KNEW the terms
Of the bout before it happened and you picked Canelo to win AFTER he lost
BOTH you and Bears tried to pass it off as him being “Drained”
Meanwhile Alvarez as of yet just accepted Floyd is TOO
much at this point…This excuse about making weight is just TIRED it’s part of a boxers job and if he cannot do it then MOVE UP..! This is one of the reasons I’m extremely opposed to discussions of MW’s dropping 7 pounds because it just opens the door for historical revisions once the loss is booked… Guys are like “he looked parched” where from your TV? You have NO idea of a guys true condition that’s why I like to let results do the talking… All these excuses when prime guys cannot get to a boxer on the WRONG side of 35 pathetic…

Posted November 12, 2013 9:21 am 


SREDMOND

They is ALWAYS an excuse looming when Floyd Mayweather laces up his gloves… Canelo
Had demonstrable advantages in youth and size, coming off the BIGGEST win of his career yet we will hear some sort of convoluted excuse from the sideline…
Danny Garcia books a loss and we will hear the “young man moved up in weight” even though
Guys like Floyd, PAC, Marquez, Cotto and many others have stepped
Up MANY divisions… The thought of a 37 year old boxer ending his career in HIS best weight class seems like sacrilege to those dying to see the guy book a loss…
The law of averages says that Floyd will likely book a loss over the next 2 or 3 years
So few fighters retire undefeated especially at his level BUT that’s not enough Guys want the man to physically overreach even though he has shown he cannot make the 154 pound limit on 3 occasions spanning 6 years…Mayweather has topped out, it’s pretty much a given he will fight next at 154 as well he should, how much time did
Roy Jones spend at HW or Ray Leonard at LHW/168….

Limeyjay – Thank you once again, it feels great to hear that from you. Yes I agree and feel the same that Boxing is an old sport rich with legends and historical fights among other things and I am a person who takes my time to speak about boxing here and I belive to do it the best way is to be honest and look deeper in to the subject of speaking when it comes down to all articles and the story and its true that so many posters are not serius or just don’t know what they are talking about but I love the sport of Boxing and that is what I want to talk about. No personal jumps or insults or other things that is not about boxing or sport here. Thank you friend :-)

Come on Limejay, are you serious? Floyd has four more fights left and out of all the possible opponents out there you think Khan deserves to be in the mix? We got Provnikov or whatever his name is, we got Garcia, Bradley, Thurman, Cotto (rematch) possibly Golovkin, Martinez or Quillan at a catchweight and possibly even Pac Man if he destroys Bam Bam Rios … all those names are out there before even mentioning Khan. And you think Khan should get a shot over those guys? You’re either drunk, high or related to Amir. It aint hate mate, it’s the plain cold truth, Khan is finished. He just wants a retirement fight, how can you not see that bro? Peace and love x

I will not be stupid enough to buy a fight between Con and Void. Void is a con man who knows how ignorant his fans are and HBO (Home Buttocks Office) believes the fans are ignorant as well. Why not fight Golovkin?! Void would never get into a ring with Golovkin for any amount of money, esp. when he can fight fake fights that have zero risks….

Bears.., I think Mattysse was on the deck… and Danny scored a UD without being hurt or shook up at any time. Danny has a good chin and a hard punch.

How about Floyd and Danny??? When has Floyd EVER fought a youthful undefeated World Champion puncher with a great chin, who can box???

Hasn’t happened yet… Garcia will be a new experience for Floyd.

And for any of you azzholes who are going to misrepresent my post — and say I’m picking Danny to beat Floyd — that is sheer nonsense… But let’s have Floyd fight the best undefeated World Champions. And Danny is on the top of the pile at the moment…

Khan is on the bottom of the pile — and that fight stinks to the quasars.

You and people like you are the reason I visit this site, it’s good to talk with fellow fight fans, and listen to different views and thoughts on fights and fighters.

Limeyjay – Hey man thank you for your kind words, I’m very honoured for your recognition :-). No of course not, I’m not offended because how can I be that to you? You just in a good sportsmanship of way expressed your state of opinion about the subject of a fight between Hopkins vs. Mayweather Jr. and I must say that in a serious matter AGREE with you. It sounds a lot better on the paper then in reality and the physical point of view is to wide between the two men. So you are in fact more right :-). I just wanted to make some continuing debate on the subject as there have been many discussions about that fight idea since Bernard Hopkins made that statement after he defended his light heavyweight world title against Karo Murat.

Some people need to go watch another sport, or at least stop clogging up this place with their nonsense.
Calling fighters bums, and saying they are crap…..just shows that their views are totally redundant, and their thoughts carry no weight at all.
Some fighters are better than others, we know that….but there are no bums, nor have there been any bums that have won world titles…..for me ,climbing through the ropes earns you a level of respect , regardless of skills.
I guess that’s lost on some of you that take time out of your lives to come and post on here.
Wether you think that fighter “x” is way short of skills and talent, at least refrain from insults, it makes you look like fools.

Mjames…..it’s ok not liking khan, but keep it real fella, or it just looks like you are hating.
He didn,t get going against Prescott, he got caught cold…..it happens.
I thought he fought poor against petersen…..and won the fight.
His speed gave Garcia all sorts of problems, until he got tagged, and he got tagged due to poor discipline….staying in the pocket and admiring his work.
His chin held up okay against maidana…..up till then maidana had 29 ko,s from 31 fights.
So a bit of credit is due surely.
Ok against Diaz his speed counted for nothing.
I understand peoples dislike for the braggadocious khan,I don’t much care for him myself.
But to just dismiss his many good points, and constantly bring up his losses is a bit poor form mate.
He beat zab better than anyone else I have seen, others have come unstuck, he made it look easy.
He has skills and heart in abundance , but very little in the way of discipline, and defence.
To just dismiss him as a complete bum is a bit off.

Floyd should fight Justin Bieber or Miley Cyrus instead of Khan. Both have better chins. Khan is washed up and plans to retire next year, he’s done nothing to earn this lottery retirement fight and presents NO challenge to Floyd at all. Khan’s speed didn’t trouble Prescott, Peterson, Garcia or Diaz, so why do people keep saying it will trouble Floyd? It won’t. If this fight happens, boxing becomes a joke sport.

I was in favour of a Bernard Hopkins – Floyd Mayweather Jr fight :-), that fight would have been interesting in a middleweight class fight. Mayweather jr jumps up 2 weight classes and Hopkins jumps down 2 weight classes. Mayweather Jr’s skills against Hopkins old school ring skills would be a difficulr fight for both men. Though Hopkins is to old at 48 to make that weight jump sucsessfull as he must jump down in pure muscles while Mayweather Jr is still in his prime and could just eat himself up to that matching weight level (not seriusly meant). Oh well that fight will just be a fantasy fight as i sounds just talking about it. Altough if it ever happend, and Hopkins made the down jump succsesfull, I would pick Hopkins as the winner by close UD or late TKO.

Listen chaps……we all know mayweather is the “man”
And we all know khan has chin issues
We also know that for many khan is a figure of fun amongst fight fans.
But for me this is a mouthwatering fight, khan is never in a dull fight, hasn,t got an ounce of quit in him, and always, always tries to impose his will on his opponent.
I predict if the fight were to happen that it will be a fantastic fan friendly fight for as long as it lasts.
There is no doubt in my mind that he will prove to be a gamer and more dangerous opponent than , Alvarez and Guerrero.
If he can start fast like he did with Judah then i think he will rattle floyd for a round or two, I fully expect mayweather to be victorious, but expect khan to at least make floyd go through the gears and have a fight.
I,ve always thought that khans style would be a test for mayweather, for me the way to be competitive against mayweather, and even think about winning the fight would be to get floyd flustered and hope you can force him to make mistakes, and then obviously have the skills to capitalise on them mistakes.
I don’t think khan is anywhere near as good as floyd, but I think if he can win rounds off of him.
If khan had a chin like Froch, and a little bit mores discipline ….meaning he didn,t throw the extra one or two shots, and hang about in range to be countered then he would be the ideal opponent to test floyd for real.
The chin issue is not gonna go away, but he could be a lot mor disciplined in his boxing, that can be drilled into him, wether he is clever enough for this to happen is another thing…..the smart side of my brain says it’s probably not gonna happen and he will revert to his natural instincts , but he really does need to address this issue for good, as it will improve his all round game .
I,m probably in the minority I guess as a fan that would like to see this fight…..does he deserve this shot over some of the other names?…….probably not, but when did that ever matter .

Khans a guy who’s perceived talent does not lineup with his performances his fast hands have gotten him into a lot of trouble because the extra 3 shots He throws have little snap and leave him open for counters… This is not peak Roy Jones who could reel off a 6 punch combo and flatten you with the last shot…Khan is fun because he is vulnerable and you never know when he will go life and death… Mayweather is simply one of the BEST pure boxers and athletes to ever lace up… He has mastered staying one step ahead and keeping the strongest opponents frustrated and wary of retaliation…

Yourdad.., “Danny Garcia was getting a boxing lesson until he shut his eyes and swung for dear life.” … LMFAO.

Danny Garcia’s eyes were wide open and so was Khan’s immobile head.

The difference between Garcia and Peterson—was Peterson just kept taking shots and hitting Khan harder… forcing a slugfest… forcing Khan to run… forcing Khan to push… to grab like an infant… to cover up… to pout at the referee… and generally survive the 12 rounds while getting the living crap beaten out of him.

Peterson hammered Khan—but couldn’t go three (3) rounds with Matthysse.

What Garcia did differently than Peterson was time Khan’s shots… blast Khan’s head off… chase Khan around the ring like the coward he is… and basically force the referee to save Khan’s life … A much bigger challenge was Lucas Matthysse, but Danny beat the bomb thrower by UD.

Next up for Danny??? … Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Posted November 10, 2013 9:42 pm 


Yourdad

I’m not a khan fan but I wanna say this -
Prescott hit a real thin boy really really hard.
I don’[t believe Mayweather will land a punch like that.
Danny Garcia was getting a boxing lesson until he shut his eyes and swung for dear life.

Khan is chinny though.
I believe the fight will be closer than some think.
The only rounds Khan ever loses is when he is tagged hard (exceot his last fight which was bad)
Mayweather by UD but khan will be good for 4 rounds.

Danny Garcia is as big as Floyd… Actually he’s bigger than Floyd. Two weight classes??? Nonsense. Danny makes 147 without a lot of drying out … He’ll be a lot stronger.

For once Floyd will be forced to take on a youthful undefeated boxer-puncher who is not weight compromised — who has lights out firepower — and can take a hard shot and immediately dish one back.

The fight isnt 100% legit yet? Floyd usually keeps every1 guessing….there not many options 4 Mayweather. Bradley/Manny are with top rank….Garcia is 2 wright classes below Floyd. Winner of Cotto/Sergio at 160 is an option. GGG is looking like fighting Murrey.

This is a crap fight. I figured Fm would fight in GB at some massive arena for Khan, but I guess not. I’m not paying for this POS. I’d rather see FM Broner that Khan. Khan is on the slide and FM is naturally bigger, more skilled, faster…. I know Khan has speed and power, but that’s not enough to beat FM. FM by KO. Khan is too small and has a chin from the Ming Dynasty.

Bl morgan…if floyd is taking easy fights, then so is triple g. Hes fought nothing but c level fighters. Martinez is looking to cash out against the smaller cotto. Why isnt he fighting triple g or moving up to 168? Martinez resume is garbage. Hes fought no hall of famers. Kelly pavlik was exposed by hopkins so all serg did was follow the blue print that movement beats pavlik. His only good win was against williams. And Julio”i cant maintain weight at any level” was a time bomb waiting to happen.

Floyd has fought and beat the best. Anybody can be beat. Ur just a floyd hater. 46-0 coming up.

Garcia V mayweather would be a complete miss match in my opinion. Garcia was getting whooped by Khan until he got the KO. If Khan could outbox Garcia like that imagine what Floyd would do with his defensive skills.

Posted November 10, 2013 1:28 pm 


B.L. Morgan

I’ve said it before: It’s all about Floyd making as much money from as little risk as possible. Khan presents very little risk so of course Floyd wants that fight.
I don’t blame him either.
Hell, if someone would pay me millions of dollars to fight someone who I’d beat easily of course I’d do it. I’d grab that paycheck before they have the chance to change their mind.
And of course this match screws Boxing Fans. But that doesn’t matter to Floyd as long as he gets paid. Even he tells you it’s all about the money.
I won’t buy the PPV because I like a contest and not a sparring exhibition where the outcome is decided before they enter the arena.

Stating the facts

Once again the so called junior middleweight champion challenging smaller fighters eg.Hatton, career junior welterweight; Marquez, career featherweight; Ortiz, career junior welterweight; Guerrero, career featherweight; Khan career junior welterweight. Golovkin and Martinez at least have the decency of challenging Floyd at the weight he is a title holder 154 so if he wants to fight a junior welterweight he should fight Garcia or Matthysse at 140.

Martin says.., “Hatton had been a world champion at 147, had a great chin”

Great chin??? Oliver McCall and Vitali Klitschko have great chins.

Hatton had no chin.. Luis Collazo, a feather-hitter had him out on his feet.. Ricky was the only guy in Mayweather’s last 10 fights who Mayweather KO’d — who didn’t drop his hands and say, “OK hit me.. OK that left hook didn’t knock me out, so hit me again, harder.”

Winky Wright deliberately let Shane Mosley hit him.. Ricardo Mayorga deliberately let Felix Trinidad hit him.. They were trying to prove how strong their chins were, but Victor Ortiz was looking to get out of the fight.

I live in the UK. Khan does not have a big following here. Why do people keep saying Khan brings lots of UK fans? He doesn’t. Khan is not Ricky Hatton. If this fight happens I will not watch it. It is a mismatch and Khan knows he will lose. He doesn’t care. Khan wants to fight Floyd and then retire. It’s just a pay day for Khan, simple as that.

Tomato Can

Khan is a good fighter, he has top notch speed, respectable power, and boxing ability. If he had a chin he could beat 90 percent (or better) of the fighters out there. HIs chin has failed more than one test, so obviously no one is hyped to see him fight the supposed best…. Still he’ll offer Mayweather more speed than he’s seen since a prime Judah. He’ll see a guy cable of dropping Maidana with a huge body shot, and make Judah Quit with a body shot, after out speeding him. But obviously Kahn has yet to show the overall composure of a great fighter, Mayweather will offer him that chance. With four fights left on Mayweather’s current contract, this is an acceptable fight for all but the fans, who think Mayweather should prove more than he already has.

Manny doesn’t pose a threat to Mayweather, Manny had trouble with Marquez and Bradley both guys who boxed countered and circled left to right. On top of that Mayweather does it better than both guy on their best night. Manny was put to sleep in his last fight, lost a close fight to Bradley in the one before that and got a gift over Marquez in the one before that.

If this turns out to be true they’ll have to stack the undercard to get get me to watch it. Mayweather-Khan just wouldn’t be that interesting to me. Khan’s susceptibility to a punch would most likely not be tested by Mayweather’s brittle hands and Mayweather’s impeccable defense and counterpunching would lead him to an easy UD. Just no real drama here. But I guess ticket sales in either NY, Atlantic City or perhaps in the UK itself as well as increased British TV money might make the fight financially feasible for Golden Boy. They would need some more undercard fights along the lines of Garcia-Mattysse to make it worth my while, though.

Floyd has belts at 147 and 154 so there’s plenty of options. Fight Pac at 147 or GG or Martinez at 154. All 3 are big fights and he’d have the negotiating clout to get a bigger % and other terms like his catch weight nonsense. Simple. Unless he’s simply looking for a safe payday like Khan.

This has to be a joke… Kahnnie couldn’t win with loaded gloves, head gear and steroids…

I’ll believe this when it’s announced. Not a fight that appeals to many people even many of the guys in the UK. Daily Express is not a paper I’m familiar with. This fight was getting reported as a done deal over a month ago in the British press. Frankly I don’t believe those wankers to use their own slang. They make stuff up just to boost page views and get people talking about them.

Smoke and MIrrors

The guy’s a con-man, always has been, always will be. His entire career is smoke and mirrors. He’s been strictly adhering to a meticulously devised take the minimum possible amount of risk for the maximum amount of gain calculated plan for ages now.

He’s never had any intention of taking on great fighters who were in their prime. He ducked Manny Pacquiao like he had the plague for years. ”Lost his urge” when they’re were great match ups aplenty for him at 147, and despite the fact that he has ”been at the top for 17 years” and is the sport’s ”cash cow” and who his fans never shut up about ”everyone wanting a piece of the Money Mayweather sweepstakes”, he’s never once fought, never mind actually beaten a great fighter that was in their prime.

Mexican B – fighter Jose Luis Castillo beat him, and a semi-retired shot coke addict Oscar De La Hoya took him right down to the wire. De La Hoya had only seen six incomplete rounds of action in just under 3 three years going into the fight against Floyd — fighting just once — and had lost 3 or his last 4 fights beforehand — including the outrageous the robbery against Sturm– and ended up going 3-4 in his last 7 fights, 2-5 if you include the Sturm fight. The 2 fighters he beat were a shot Mayorga who’d had all the stuffing pounded out of him by Trinidad and journeyman scrub Stevie Forbes. Prime De La Hoya KO 6 prime Mayweather.

And now he’s fighting glass-jawed Khan who has been savagely been knocked out early twice, has lost 2 of his last 4 fights but in reality should be 1-3 after getting a gift against a shot Julio Diaz, who dropped Khan on his backside and wobbled and hurt him everytime he connected with a half decent punch on his glass jaw. Khan only managed to avoid another embarrassing KO loss because he held on all night. What a joke a fighter and a fight!

So that’s why Khan pulled out of the Alexander fight. Another KO loss on his record from Alexander and he would’ve never had another fight in the US again.

i floyd mayweather had any stones he would defend his 154 lb title vs Triple GGG

Whoever made this fight happen must’ve thought that it’s been a while since Mayweather had a KO on his record….and the sad part is that Khan has the hand speed to maybe take an early round from Mayweather. Otherwise what a disgraceful fight. Cha-ching show me the Money.

Posted November 9, 2013 6:06 pm 


Gussy Finknottle

All this about khan not deserving a shot is ridiculous. Zab Judah keeps getting title shots and top billing on shows and has not beaten a good fighter in years…and Khan thrashed Judah. Let Khan have a go, he certainly brings something different.

Tark- i agree that Garcia or Bradley r the best options 4 Floyd….the only problem with Garcia v Floyd is Floyds sitting 2 weight classes apart….Garcia has also said hes not intefested as yet 2 fight Floyd….im sure Garcia is looking 2 unify all belts at jr welter or a show down with Manny….problem with Bradley V Floyd is Arum. Khan is just a tune up b4 facing Cotto v Sergio winner at 160

Posted November 9, 2013 6:04 pm 


Ray Ray

Whats Garcia doing? I heard Garcia saying he doesnt need a Floyd fight yet…he has expressed interest in fighting Manny. Garcia isnt 40plus or coming of a lose, hes not fighting Manny.

Posted November 9, 2013 5:58 pm 


TARK

This pundit says.., “Hatton, who fell to Mayweather in the 10th-round of a good fight, gives Khan a decent chance against the unbeaten great who will turn 37 next February.” The fight wasn’t that good.. It wasn’t competitive—a foregone conclusion that Hatton would be KO’d.

And what did you expect Hatton to say???

Hatton is going to do his part to hype this cherry-picked opponent. Ricky is the ONLY one of Floyd’s last 10 opponents who got knocked out while actually trying to fight back — so Khan is just as defensively challenged as Hatton. Khan would not have a chance in the world of winning this disaster of a fight.

I’m sure Danny Garcia will have something to say about the matchup, since he’s the most logical opponent for Floyd at this point.

This should be on free tv. Who’s paying to see this travesty of a fight?

Posted November 9, 2013 5:33 pm 


Die Siener

Mugs for paying to see Floyd beat up on 3rd raters. Can’t blame Floyd, he must be laughing all the way to the bank. Khan has no chance, he is shot and this is his cash out fight. Fair play to him, hopefully he packs it in after Floyd has his way with him. Khan could end up sounding like James Toney if he takes any more head shots.

Do not buy it, if true. Only way to get thru to all, competitive fights sell, mismatches that should not even be made. Don’t. Nuff said.

As far as triple g he has a mandatory w murray in feb which will be no easy fight. If he wins he still has to make weight as 154 and prove he can fight effectively at 154 w/o being weight drain and still be explosive!

Posted November 9, 2013 5:19 pm 


mr gav

Though a miss match but thinking a about it I think fans will get value for money if not even matched. And face it 98% of us here will watch this fight live

I hope its just a rumor! If its true its strictly for money! But lets wait and see before we pass judgement.

To all you floyd haters telling floyd to fight martinez and triple g, tell martinez to man up and fight triple g and tell triple g to move up and fight andre ward or carl froch.

Just because the Daily Express says its on, doesnt mean it is. Lets wait for the fighters to confirm it.

Only a cash up and tune up in my mind……easy Floyd win. I think Floyds filling in time until facing the winner of Sergio v Cotto. Lightweight, welterweight and middleweight titles r on Floyds mind no1 has done that. Every1 should check out Mayweather.com and watch this young phillapino kid do some pad work with uncle roger, its pretty impressive.

They have sold every other Mayweather fight and this one will sell as well, people would moan no matter who was his next opponent, the selling point for this fight is Khans speed but he does not have enough variety of punches to pull this off. Usually a Mayweqther fight is exciting for the fans for one maybe two rounds then everyone can see what is happenin. With the Khan fight…maybe…..just maybe it will close a bit longer, but this will take massive discipline on Khans part which I do not belive he has. Mayweather does not throw knockout shots, so this may be close for a while, but as with all the Mayweather fights the excitement will vanish and Khan will be lost and chasing, he is just not good enough for Mayweather. There is only one man out there who could possibly trouble him and he is not finished yet………are you Manny?

Posted November 9, 2013 4:53 pm

Dang and i thought mayweather was going to fight khan….lol. Actaully, u thought floyd was going to fight pac after arum said if pac looked good against rios even though two weeks ago, arum said he would mix and match bradley, marquez, ruslan, alvarado, pac and rios, depending on what happens with this fight…more lol. Ahhhhhh…hhhaaaaa…thank u very much

sergio martinez at 154 wd put to sleep floyd eraly or pacman at 147thats why he keeps hidding behind lame excuses ….he says sergio is to big when we all know sergio its a natural 154 i wonder why he did not think tha same when he fought marques two divitions south his weight???he aint the greatest like he claims and he will never be.

Posted November 9, 2013 4:50 pm

Tim bradly is the only fight for floyd thats intresting, they can make it happen. Its ok if floyd takes a easy fight next because he fought canelo last time out and thats what the fans were asking for. It dosent change the facts khan is a crap fight.

Posted November 9, 2013 4:50 pm 


eric

3G would ko khan with the wind from a missed punch. Khan does have good boxing ability andcspeed but gases late and has no chin. Easy fight for floyd and ofcourse floyds fans will pay to see a total mismatch like the germans do with wladmir klitschko, maybe mayweather and klitschko have the same mother ? Are they brothers ? We will all hear floyd nutt huggers the next day bragbn how floyd beat up a bum.

Posted November 9, 2013 4:45 pm 


147pounder

when wil floyd grow some balls n fight a real fighter who can match his speed and experience….like pacman or the dangerous segio martinez?

Posted November 9, 2013 4:44 pm 


Boomboomboy

Listen I agree there are far more worthy opponents for Floyd to fight, but the fact is the top rank golden boy war is ruining this golden era of welterweights.
He mightn’t be a superstar but who else in boxing deserves this fight more than Bradley?
Floyd ducked Pacquiao for years FACT and hid behind the war with Bob Arum.
Take Pacquiao out the picture who else is a worthy ppv opponent? That’s why I hope Pac is finally back to his best vs Rios and we as the public must demand Floyd stops hand picking every opponent and finally fight someone who could beat him.
That being said I think Khan hand speed will give Floyd problems all night, styles make fights and I fancy Khan to be a nightmare for Mayweather, but lose on points

Posted November 9, 2013 4:41 pm 


CK

I like the fight because there isn’t anybody else for Mayweather to fight at Welter,unless he goes up officially to 154 and fights Martinez or Cotto again or some of the heavier guys and I don’t think he’ll do that as it is too risky for him. Khan can match him in speed,IMO and will be a good fight but of course that is all up to Khan to keep it interesting.

Respect loss for mayweather here if he wants to be mentioned among the greatest in history then a past it over hyped hand picked khan will not help. Pls grow some balls and fight ggg who is willing to come to 154
