You do realise that Floyd is older than Pacquiao right??

Voice of boxing ! That’s exactly right! PAC started as a pro at 115 pound weight and roger mayweather was using that fact to show that PAC must be on something because no one in history managed to beat guys from starting at 115 and ko Guys at ww…!! And now they try to tell us they started the same wait … The usual bs!!

Floyd started at 115 as an amateur. He turned pro at 130 as a young, growing man. He syayed at 140 briefly but moved to welter to get bigger fights. He is not a big welter because he is kind of short but he has filled out by bulking up a bit. His frame is designed for about 140.

@ Redmond. Manny started his pro career earlier than Floyd at 115. He is not a welter and never reaches welter minimum but moved there when Oscar called him out. He bulked up for that fight but was way below welter. He had intended to be at 135 but moved up for $ fights. Learn facts by reading experts who can disect their careers if you don’t believe me. They are not true welters.

How is Floyd “a natural Jr Welter” when he began at 130
And NEVER hit the Jr WW limit??? He and Manny weigh the same on fight night… That assertion is NOT close to factual or anything but plain stupid… Mayweather is one of the smaller welter a operating today.. Rios came up from 140 and weighed more than Mayweather EVER has fight night…GTFOH

“Ring age” ie open to interpretation and the fact is that if you claim these fighters were shot when they faced Floyd and lost then they would have to be MORE shot when Manny faced them AFTER….!!! Penalizing Mayweather for aging gracefully in the ring is WEAK, fact is the mans soon to b 37 which will NEVER be mistaken for “young” in boxing..

Actually Redmond age in the ring is not the same as chronological age. For example Bernard Hopkins is 4 years older than Roy Jones jr yet is younger in ring terms. Manny is more past his best than Mayweather. Like say Roy Jones he relies on his actual athleticism more than he does on boxing fundamentals. He has absorbed far more punishment as well.

@JT154, I have said in previous posts that Manny is really a lightweight who moved up daringly to face welters. I also believe Floyd is a natural Jr welter who fights at welter. The further they venture up the less effective they are and therefore ahve to be more careful.
I also talked about Floyd’s style of defence and Manny’s more warrior style. Floyd’s style allows guys to age less (wear & tear) while warrior styles fizzle out faster. I said Manny took a severe beating vs Margarito and was bedridden for days.. He suffered a damaged eardrum vs Cotto. Facing larger guys has caused him a few years off his prime. His punches though pungent does not have the same impact against larger guys.
Floyd at the same time is even more risk averse as he moves up as the punches are harder. He has bulked up to vbetter handle the heavy artillery and to do inside fighting. Look at how he handled Mosley and to a lesser extent, Canelo on the inside. Floyd is stronger than Manny and will easily tie him up. If Manny tries to jump in Floyd will time him and he hits fairly solid, although he won’t plant his feet for fear of a return shot.
If Manny boxes and throws many shots, the southpaw style and bunches may cause a problem. Floyd is the smarter guy, so absent a ko by Manny, it is unlikely he can win. I have a history of loving both boxers and pure punchers, but I prefer a boxer who is not afraid of getting hit and has ko power. I started reading my dad’s Bible (Ring) and Boxing Illustrated (they both used to have some rassling at the back), in the late 50′s.
I became a fan since then. There was one champ after all there is only one world right? There was no beating 5-6 champs to be the man. Then in the 60′s a split saw WBA and WBC emerge. Boxing quickly started to change. Then in the 70′s with TV there were the mini divisions. So from 8 titles we now have about 18 plus four bodies. I am a huge fan but I coulnot name one champ of all divisions even if I picked the best known from each body. It is a joke.
Then we get guys posting saying a fighter beat 6 exchamps in the same division. And P4P is another joke. It allows guys to avoiid cleaning out their division. If you want to move up to another division, ok but clean out one first and move on. Manny and Floyd are the best of this era and needto settle it though after their best dates. I say Floyd is favoured but so was Foreman va Ali. Anything can happen if one guy has an off night, that is why in the old days guys fought 2-3 times to prove who was better. Not talk smack and avoid a fight.
@Adrian, or anyone who appreciate my post. I try to be fair to boxers. I love the sport and even my favourite Roy Jones, I used to argue with my dad that he needs to stop facing bogus #1 contenders and clean out the very best. His legacy is not what it could have been if he had. He falls outside my top 20 for that reason although he had the potential to be top 3 alltime. Floyd has the samd potential, way more than Manny but he like Roy, did not fulfil his legacy.
If he had continued like he was at 130 & 135, he would definitely have been top 5 alltime. I will get hate mail but who cares? I am being honest!

Actually Floyds resume is better than Pacs. Problem is the fight could of been made but they declined something. All he has to do now is accept Floyds demands and the fight can be made. The difference in Floyd fighting certain opponents is that he was fighting them after they where coming off big wins. That is the difference about like opponents. Pac really needs to prove he can beat a boxer because past fights have pretty much shown him having some major issues or losing to good boxers and Floyd is a great boxer/counter puncher.

Posted December 2, 2013 2:19 pm 


SREDMOND

PTS, you are whining about “Mayweather facing older guys” but how does this fly when Floyd faced most of the common opponents BEFORE Manny? ie Hatton, Oscar and Mosley? Marquez was OLDER when he knocked PACQUAIO out? So how are you selling this… Floyd’s last SEVERAL opponents have been YOUNGER by plenty than him Canelo 14 years, Guerrero 7 years Cotto 4 years, Ortiz 10 years. OR do you claim their birth records are falsified?? I am fine with PAC and Floyd fighting and AGAIN we will see an older Mayweather in the ring with a younger Pacquaio UNLESS you claim Mannys the older fighter somehow? Reality is that FMJ is just not having the issues in the ring Manny did ie controversial win over Marquez 3rd bout and KO slaughter in the 4th….

Posted December 2, 2013 2:15 pm 


PTS

Since when has boxing been about “A” having to fight “C” before he can fight “B?” Manny has ALREADY fought many of the same opponents Pink floyd has. Anything apart from this is just another obstacle to prevent the fight from coming to fruition. Besides, its not like Pac arrived here the other day like wannabe Broner. Pac has more ring accomplishments than Floyd has. If Floyd had the audacity to fight folks like guerrero, juan tiny tim marquez, ortiz and baldomir…….. then Certainly Im sure he would love to step up the competition and fight someone who hits back. In fact, for Floyd talk so much smack, he should be the one fighting Bradley who he has avoided since Bradley came into the division. Bradley has been a bonafide champion….a whole lot longer than….you know…..those fake opponents named guerrero and oritz whom he had the nerve to fight instead of facing Bradley, who had a much better resume than those other two ring clowns. At least Pac fought him and anyone with a pulse and brain knows who won! But, as Floyd has for many years now, avoided the best competition until they were either past their prime OR…..had a few losses, otherwise, his opponents are small guys made to look large than life the way they made juan tiny tim marquez appear. This is not a joke but more a nightmare of boxing.

I am all for Mayweather vs PAC late 2014 if by some miracle these Network and promotional issues can be worked out… Beyond that stick a fork in it, a 38 year old Floyd vs a 36 year old Manny Pacquiao….At this point I think the Networks will be the bigger issue, Showtime is not gonna budge on this because of their contract with Money May… Interesting times indeed..

I agree. Bradley made people questions Pacquiao’s “fire”, cause Bradley’s style didn’t allow Manny to be his typical self, something people weren’t used to seeing…Bradley is a boxer who throws a lot of punches, that’s the type of style Manny MUST defeat convincingly in order to make a case that he can beat Floyd.

Tumbo-pendeji-to is a jealous Fat Head. Jealous of the fact the conversation does not involve any Fat Heads from SOB. ( take your pick as to its definition, either would be correct) As for Pac…..at least he fought and beat tiny tim JMM while both were in their primes…..and more than once I might add……he fought Barrera while in his prime…something JMM never did….He fought Morales while in his prime….the first two of which Morales was still in his prime and still formidable. Pac has so many more accomplishments over tiny tim, it’s truly amazing and remarkable. Best part of it….Pac still sells out ppv’s. Juan Tiny tim marquez’ latest fiasco of ppv sales amounted to a measly 350K buys, meaning, neither him nor Bradley are able to put asses in seats the way Pac can. Tumbo should really appreciate this mexicutioner. They come along once in a blue moon.

the ONLY conditions under which Team Pacquiao* confirms a matchup v. Floyd is if Mayweather displays notable age- and/or ring-related slippage. it’s virtually the same waiting game that Team Pacquiao* employed to avoid immediate rematches v. Marquez. otherwise, that rivalry could’ve been concluded in a couple of years, if not sooner. they’ve already managed to stall the first bout by 3+ years. however, this strategy requires precise timing. meanwhile, Mayweather has continued to thrive while it is Pacquiao* who has displayed serious limitations and/or age-related slippage. IMO, Pacquiao* will not cash-out in what figures to be the final bout and loss of his career for anything less than a guaranteed $40 mill. after all, paydays not ring-glory has always been the guiding principle of Pacquiao’s* career and one $40 million loss is preferable to three or four $10-15 million wins v. marginal competition.

Actually Pac and company came out and said they felt Marquez was on something. They did not stay quite and not saying anything. They came out and clearly said they felt Marquez was on something and that is the reason why they had Rios doing the random testing.

Good comments mr. Bible. Although i do not agreewith all of them, naturally, your opinion was explained well and was well informed. You brought up stuff ppl dont talk about either like manny being hurt by margo. Those big guys took wind outta his sail.

I also like your ability to avoid the pactard vs floydiot universe. I respect both have been a fan of both. Personally I have always favored Mayweather in a fight. I did think manny’s best chance was a few years ago. I would still be more than interested in this fight however I see it being like Hagler Leonard where both guys were not at their best when they actually fought.

The Bible & Voice of Boxing

Urone 2 I am not here to defend Manny but if I was in his shoes and an opponent accuse me of PEDS I would sue his azz. I know I worked really hard and still give up weight and size to bigger guys and he has the nerve to make such a vile accusation? Floyd never accused anyone else. He just said I want drug testing. Like I said before, I feel everyone or at least all major boxers or champs, should undergo year round testing. They make enough $ to do that.
What is strange about the issue was that first Floyd, family and friends were saying Manny beat drained fighters or he beat Floyd’s leftovers. But the momemnt he called out Floyd it changed to PEDS use. Go back and check the chronological order of events and you’ll see I am dead-on. Manny ko-ed two guys in explosive fashion. One to take a version of the 135 crown and Hatton. He wore Cotto down and Cotto is a guy with a history of being hit and hurt.
Clottey held his hands up high all night. Mosley ran like a girl and Margarito just took blows and hurt Manny real bad too. In fact he was in bed for days after that fight and vowed never to venture at 154 again. Marquez he has always had problems with and Bradley fought smart, but careful. yet the Mayweathers and fans kept saying Manny was moving up and destroying everyone. Where, when and how?
Then the focus changed. He is off PEDS and not koing people. What I saw was revisionist history. Manny always hit extremely hard with his left and under Freddie developed his right hand. Both he and Floyd train very hard and always aer in decent shape. Something I admire. They both are very focused but fight in different styles. Floyd is an artist who does not want to get hit, Manny is a warrior who will take to give. As a fighter, I prefer Floyd’s style. As a fan, I love both but give me Manny’s.
Why do you think so many young people, (my sons included) prefer MMA? They love the brutality and short endings. Roy Jones was my favourite because he gave me both dimensions. But back to Manny. It was not fair for Floyd and family to tarnish his image. When Floyd was accused of failing tests, Manny never said a word. He could have jumped on it but never did. When Marquez suddenly bulked up at age 39 and the world felt he was on PEDS, Manny never said a word. I deal in law and you just can’t accuse without being able to prove it.
All Floyd had to do with Manny was the same as he did with Marqueez and others and we probably would have had the fight. All of the bad blood between Pactards and Floyiots still would have happened because they are all dumb azzes. They are scared to see their man lose as if a loss takes away from greatness. They are both great. Ali and Frazier loss to each but they are still great. That’s my point. I loved them both but I would have lost respect if one of them had made excuses NOT to fight.

Roger Mayweather will be the same man to tell you Bradley got a gift decision vs Pacquio and therefore he doesnt deserve a shot against Floyd Mayweather. Now, they are again finding an excuse not to make this fight happen. I like both fighters and think Mayweather will beat Pacquio. However, this is a fight that I still would love to see as well as many others do too. If the fight is so damn easy for Floyd just make it happen, I mean he is still going to make lots of money for an easy night, according to him and his ppl. Just make it happen and stop making it so damn difficult. As far as Roger Mayweather, he needs to shut up… never gives credit to any fighter! LETS GO!!!

Floyd also ducked Cotto at 147, Martinez at 150, and Winky at 154.

Whats really funny is that Floyd called the later two out but they called his bluff. Winky was even willing to do a same day weigh-in. Martinez was willing to give Mayweather a 20% cut of the proceeds.

Same ole BS,

I can admit the Floyd didn’t have a great 147 resume the only fighters he didn’t fight was Margarito, Williams and Pacquiao. He tried to get Mosley eariler when he decided to move to welter Mosley declined. People complained that he fought Judah and not Baldimir then he fought Baldimir. We can change the subject to Mayweathers competition but pay close attention not one of these fighters are from Top Rank nor has there been any since Mayweathers departure. The only fighter I know for sure Mayweather ducked was Paul Williams. The other fighter he hadn’t fought seemed to be because of the Top Rank Rift. The De La Hoya fight I give him full credit for, he moved up to 148 to fight an aging 154 champion. He only weighed 148 on fight night fighting a guy weight more than 160.

I don’t remember Holmes ducking anyone, there was no one left when he was champion, all of the compitition during his rein was weak. If I remember right he had a problem with the other sanctioning bodies and did not want their title belts. He held the IBF belt but I dont remember the problem he had with the other organizations.

I’ll just wait for the fight to happen and I believe it will and we will see what happens then I will be right back here on this sight to see how everyone will respond and watch as many make excuses about the out come.

Everyone relax. There will be a may vs pac fight in sept. Both are simply running out of options and need each other for 1 last monster payday. The fact bob arum is willing to agree to whatever floyd wants proves my point! Arum never gives up that kind of control. I think pac will finally agree to drug testing ( as he has been his past few fights ). I think floyd will be willing to give pac a bigger peice of the pie. Cause in really w/o pac there wont be any pie. For those reason the fight will be in vegas in sept. Prediction. Floyd by hard fought majority or split decision to set up rematch. In vegas pac will need k.o. Pac was robbed against bradley so you know he wont get decision against floyd. Lets hope pac wins his fight in march and may wins in may!

Name ONE prime great fighter ,Mayweather has faced Urone2 .

Mosely ( has been ) , , , Alvarez ( a hyped novice who was gifted a decision against the very average Austin Trout ), Guerrero ( a bum , imagine him fighting Leonard and Hearns at 147 ), Cotto ( a has been and NOT great , just very good ), Ortiz ( another bum and a known quitter- mentally weak fighter ) , the 39 year old Mosely ( was at his peak say around the first De La Hoya fight a full TEN , yes 10 years earlier.
Marquez ( who Jr cheated at the weigh in and who looked like a fat little blimp against Floyd ) who Pac had already beaten , Ricky Hatton ( a 140 lb fighter and nowhere near great ) , De La Hoya ( a part time fighter who was a decade past his best which in my opinion was at 140 lbs when he rematched Chavez ) and Carlos Baldomir ( probably THE worst welterweight champion in history . Floyd has been at 147 for 7 years yet wont go near the middleweights , he prefers fighters coming up in weight .

Now watch the Floydiots spin their usual bunch of nonsense as though Floyd is a rapper or a businessman .

Boxers used to be warriors and followers of the code of Bushido , guys who would fight anyone anytime any place . Mayweather is the polar opposite , Larry Holmes and Ray Leonard were the first fighters to use this kind of logic but SRL only did it after he came back from a detached retina and Holmes , well , he was a great champion and a warrior but he never u attempted to unify the title and ducked a lot of fighters.

So if Manny already signed with a venue in March he should walk away and get sued. If the fight happens in September we will see what happens. I still believe only one person is scared here and that is Arum. How long have you guy been boxing fans, and yes Arum had me fooled as well. I was calling Mayweather before the Correlas fight, because they were the best at 130 and Mayweather wouldn’t fight Correlas. It was all Arum stopping the fight, then Arum got me again with De La Hoya Vs Trinadad, De La Hoya was ducking his toughest competition, guess what geniuses it was Arum again. You can’t make a rock listen so for me this has become pointless. I just hope they make the fight and get it over with.

Its all about the zero with Fraud. Its his only marketing tool. He is an unexciting performer in the ring, is lacking in charisma , has no real fan base and needs Mexican opponents to ensure a decent audience. His next fight will be a poor seller , similar to the Guerrero fight unless he fights Pacquiao. He doesnt have another Canelo to bring in the paying customers for Showtime.

Its why his people have always sought easy opposition. They know the audience and also know boxing. Hence a continual lineup of plodding , face first types. Judas Clottey may have given Floyd a much better fight than say Alvarez , the ancient and beat up Cotto, the laughably inept Guerrero , Baldomir etc.

Never forget how Fraud took his little hiatus and let Manny , Cotto, Margarito and Clottey all beat each other up while he hid in the shoadows , cycling his PEDS and waiting for easier opposition.

As you say Mayweather has made people out to be fools, I see Arum has done that to you.

What I am saying is Arum has done all of this before, if you don’t believe it, it not on me it on you. People want to point the finger at Mayweather that fine but for what reason they want to make him out to be scared. it was said he wouldn’t fight guy then when he does there’s another reason why he did it, the guys were passed their prime or he knew he would beat them. You can’t change the FACT that Mayweather gave into everything the Bob and Manny wanted only asking for Olympic style drug testing, Mayweather said make the fight happen. Bob and Manny would not give on the drug test after getting the contrat that they wanted. I can see and understand what went on here, If you can’t there isn’t a thing in the world I can sit here and type to enlighten you. So, to you I say who’s the fool me, you, the only people that know for sure is Manny, Bob and Floyd. I will continue to learn from my history lessons in boxing. You do what you do.

Pacquiao’s fight with Rios was more action filled and interesting than Floyd’s fight with Canelo. Pacquiao won by a shutout on one card, and I think that was the result. No judge gave Floyd a shutout. I think Pacquiao would present a tough challenge for Floyd, so I hope negotiations can move forward.

If Pacquioa beats Bradley the same old excuse will emerge from the Mayweather camp, ” oh yea he won BUT he is still with Top Rank under Bob….we pass…” For those that are so naive to believe a family that is known to lie; wake up! The Mayweathers are STALLING you fools!

Same ole BS,

Do you understand that the USADA did get a positive sample on Marion Jone and said others. Only after the recieved a sample of the designer drug that was being used. They’re a joke, but the seem to be the only agency in the world today consistantly catching athletes cheating. In the world of sport today there are still tons of athletes looking to improve their performance to win. Only a few get caught, and it seems the biggest names have been caugth by the USADA.

The Voice of Boxng,

Sorry I did get back to you last night, but I will repeat what I have been saying the whole time. Floyd toss all of his eggs in the basket when he said make the fight all I want is the drug testing they can have everything else. That when all of the Manny fan start making excuses about the drug testing. If giving in to all of your opponents demands and asking for a change in just the drug testing is not wanting the fight, then what is. If Arum doesn’t want the fight and Manny doesn’t tell Arum to make the fight it wont happen.

Remember when Floyd was with Arum and everyone wanted to see Mayweather/Correlas. The stall on that fight was Arum, he didn’t want Floyd to take the fight and everyone said that Floyd was ducking then. That is until Floyd force Arums hand and made him make the fight. The same thing happened with De La Hoya and Trinandad. Now how many of you think that this Man Arum has changed his spots when it come to his Cash Cows. If you don’t like Mayweather this is very understandable he’s a class A butt hole. That’s no excuse to overlook a business man(Bob Arum) doing his normal business practises. It will all eventually come out but until then I will not believe that the old dog has changed his spots.

Roger Mayweather is a fool…lol. He genuinely thinks that we will buy into that whole garbage he spills from his “mouf”. THE INTREST has always been there. Tell your nephew quit running son. You can tell Floyd has no balls cause he lets his uncle run his mouth off, yet HE (FLOYD) claims that he calls the shots?

Mayweathers fail again

The Mayweathers will do whatever they want unless there is pressure. If you’re looking for a fighter with heart, honesty, courage, and a person with morals then look elsewhere. Floyd Mayweather and his camp pretty much know how to CHOSE their opponents carefully. Its something they are proud of. There is a reason why they’ve put off the Pacquioa fight for so long. The real suckers are his loyal fans that would literally jump in front of a car for him, not realizing he really doesnt give a f’k about them.

Posted December 1, 2013 10:05 pm

LOL, Pac already smoked Bradley, beat him every round in a lopsided mismatch and made him look like a B level fighter. The only drama that resulted was possibly the most corrupt decision in boxing history. Nobody would want to see Pac v Bradley again.

Same ole BS

USADA are thye same group who never managed to get a positive test from Marion Jones , Justin Gatlin etc . They are considered a joke.

If Mayweather was serious about “drug testing “he would let himself be tested ALL year round ( randomly ) and he would give hair samples to the drug testing body so they could test them .

Smoke and Mirrors man.

Fraud’s fans can spin it anyway they like but its pretty simple. Fraud is the first fighter in history to duck his most threatening and biggest paying fight.

Round n round they go making up excuses for their man who they support like he was a businessman or a rap impresario , not a prize fighter.

Actually Pac did decline when he wanted cut off dates. Randome testing with cut off dates isn’t random testing. There shouldn’t of been an argument on who did the testing because Floyd was gonna pay for it anyways. He pays for the testing for him and his opponents

Is PUBLIC ENEMY at it again? He cant help himself can he? The talk of the forum is Pacquioa/Mayweather yet he somehow cant resist making insults about mexican fighters. I know he said in the past that he has mexican friends but I doubt that. He is so annoying that if he was my friend I would have punched him in the mouth and taken his girl by now. The talk is about Mayweather/Pacquioa, notice how he NEVER insults Mayweather or Pacquioa or any other type of fighters except mexicans. Makes me think sometimes that he probably lives in a neighborhood full of mexicans and he probably gets teased alot and when he gets home he gets on his computer and on this site to vent out his pathetic frustrations. Am I right?…. Yep nailed it.

Ummm Stevens just said he didn’t want to fight Kovalev on TV what are you talking about. And so what if Pac called Floyd out on national TV. Pac could of had the fight years ago but declined by not taking drug test. Then declined again by not taking the biggest payday of his career. Pac needs to prove he can beat a boxer. Had trouble with Marquez and got KOd, lost to Bradley, lost to a prime Morales, ducked Guzman. He doesn’t like boxers. He likes to fight come straight forward fighters who he is much faster than.

Stevenson is the epitome of a champion. The dude doesnt give a crap who he fights. He has in the last 12 months fought no one but the best in his division….he didn’t put obstacles….he didnt require his opponents to fight his left overs because that proves nothing except being an obstacle. Floyd cannot carry Stevenson’s jock strap. That makes four top opponents he has fought this year. Floyd? Still trying stir up the dust given the sun is setting on his parade. Floyd is still trying working with smoke and mirrors instead of being a macho …. a real man, a real champion and fighting whoever it is that is willing. Floyd is nothing less than a frigging has been whos time has passed and needs to retire. He’s giving nothing in return for the money he’s extorting from fans.

Tark you should quit arguing with the identity theft idiot. I have said many times that I thought Pac won the fight. But I think the judges where not happy with the way Pac was only fighting for 30 seconds a round and that cost him the fight. If Pac would of been fighting the whole fight he would of got the victory. But it was closer than what people think or say. Pac wasn’t really landing many punches and he also never hurt Bradley. The one time it did look like Bradley got hurt, he wasn’t, he never even got hit, he had an injured foot or ankle issues. So I thought Pac won but he wasn’t working the whole fight and that can cost you

The Voice of Boxng

@ Adrian, thank you. I really can’t see why Floydbots are so defensive about him facing Manny. They insist he is no good yet seem afraid for Floyd to face him. Are you telling me that Ortiz and Guerrero are more deserving of Floyd than Manny or can draw like Manny?
Floyd faced Canelo because he probably knew he had no choice if he wanted huge PPV plus to be honest, who has he beaten? And why did Floyd who criticized Manny, drag him down in weight? Personally, I do not feel the weight made a big difference because IMO Canelo lost to Trout but was given a home decision; proving he was not ready for primetime.
I did not hear Floydbots cry out he was not worthy because they knew it was easy pickings. They are not crying out about Khan. yes Khan whose chin has never met a punch it could resist. And you have the nerve to say Manny #2 PPV star in the US and indisputably #1 outside the US is not worthy? Do I smell fear or what?
If I had to bet my life I would bet on Floyd winning by UD and I am not a Floydbot. I also am not betting because I no longer have the passion I had before and coul care less who wins. If it happens I want a good action fight and may the better man win. That’s it. No excuses, no demands, prove you are the better man and just fight.
I am sure some Floydbot or Pactard will accuse me of being a fan boy of either fighter. But I could care less. I have no vested interest other than a fan of boxing unlike Pactards and Floydbots who only love their man like he is the last supply of penicillin and they got diabetes and desperately need him to survive.

Again after getting knocked out by a brutal KO your stock drops just like in the BCS poll get beat by 60 points you drop to number 10 back to the waiting list. Pac got destroyed and now needs to rebuild his brand Rios did not help. Pac needs Bradley because he has a title or Pac needs Broner because he is skilled and the closet to Mayweather in fight style as some say. Those fights make sense and would build Pacs stock. Right now Mayweather is on top of the World and does not need Pac. Pac is looking up from ground level and needs 50 million to get the tax man off his back he may go to jail. Arum is the other problem he knows in a Pac fight his slice of the pie will be small now Pac does not have in clout at the Mayweather table.

SREDMOND

You guys are VERY basic thinkers that’s why it’s hard to be conceptual on these threads at times… Showtime and HBO are NOT gonna just do a handshake deal on this matter, Mayweather has a MASSIVE contract and HBO has done most of its business with HBO… The money is another matter, Floyd’s entitled to the Lions share and numerically there is no intelligent debate, he did almost 3x what Manny did against Bradley vs Canelo and his guarantees and overall takedown is staggering… 50 mill sounds like ALOT and it is, unless you just made 41.5 mill plus upside and most of the promotion… The money he stands to make is uncharted territory for PAC Man but not Floyd necessarily he made 45mill after all was said and done against Cotto…Bob Arum would have to make concessions that will fall him, he is discussing this fight because the best he can conjure at this point are in house rematches and Marquez is gonna want 8 figures even after losing so the big $$$$ is getting harder to come by for Manny… Showtimes committment to Mayweather goes beyond the 32 mill he gets with that “0″ intact… It marked a shift in the balance of power to Showtime as it pertains to PPV, Broner, Canelo, Mayweather are all guys (Floyd of course) who have a future on PPV and that’s the goal…HBO has PAC Man and Cotto who is a free agent and possibly winding down..At the end of the day pretending Floyd will starve if he only makes 32 mill per fight for the next 4 contests is laughable… Manny just made 18 mill vs Rios and the TR stable is totally depleted for him absent some rematches one of which already did poorly (Bradley)

Isn’t mayweather always saying if it makes dollars it makes sense, who is he going to fight that’s going to bring as many pay per view buys as manny at this point? It either makes dollars and makes sense or it doesn’t, they are always talking about if it makes dollars it makes sense but when it comes to manny it doesn’t. Manny already beat bradley decisively he was just robbed of the decision he doesn’t need to prove what he has already done. This all appears to be diversionary tactics to me, stop ducking and dodging floyd and take the fricking fight, prove you are the best and silence the critics.

I’m sure after Pac beats Bradley like he did the first time Roger and Floyd will find another excuse not to make the fight. What with all of Floyd’s house fighters like Bey and Love getting busted for PEDs the whole take the test angle is now a joke. Kinda funny that even with Manny in decline they’re in no hurry to fight him. Something tells me that Showtime is gonna give Mayweather an ultimatum after the Khan fight flops financially, though.

Want to know how to prove someone is a die hard Floyd fan, care nothing about boxing and is scared to see him lose?
Just mention that he should face Manny. That’s it….Floyd should face Manny.
Then sit back and wait after laying that bait. Every excuse possible will be written. He is not a P4P fighter. He does not deserve a shot. He declined $40,000,000 offer. He has no skills. He got koed by Marquez. He lost to Bradley. He is not a draw. He is a little Asian punk. He uses PEDS. He fights for Arum. He should fight from 1 to 10 different fighters before he can get Floyd. And the excuse list goes on and on.
How to tell a Pactard? Just say he is a bum or does not deserve a shot at Floyd.
Immediately, they will insist he is the greatest ever. He is still the #1 P4P. He deserves the bigger share. He is a saint. He has never done anything wrong. He is a genuine man. He is a Christian. He has had bad decisions. Never mention his smoking, drinking, gambling, womanizing or other transgressions.
To be honest, it does not matter just like Floyd’s transgressions should not matter when it comes to wanting them to box. We are talking about boxers and boxers have always been violent people.
How to tell a real boxing fan? A real boxing does not care who wins a fight. He may have a fav fighter but wants to see the best face the best after all, it is his money they are receiving. He hopes his fav wins. No excuses. No demands for one fighter before he fights another. Just fight and may the better man win.

That’s it. Lock the fockers in a cage if that’s what it takes. Give the winner 60% and the loser 40. Case closed.
Instead we get people writing in like it is them who is getting scre-wed or losing $ or honour if one guy wins, loses or gets less $. What the eff????”

I can’t agree more with you!!!! Your post is the most balanced and unbiased post I have ever read in here when it comes to mayweather vs PAC saga!!

Manny Pacquiao is the biggest draw in boxing. He has no unfinished business, and he’s beaten every guy he’s ever fought. Mayweather’s sorry excuses have played out a long time ago. All Mayweather has to do is tell Haymon and GBP to make the fight. Forget the hatred he has for Arum. If he rally thinks he can beat Manny, just make the fight. Manny Pacquiao will go down in history as the better fighter. He avoided no one. Manny has more options than Mayweather because he brings excitement to each and every fight. People love Manny Pacquiao. Boxing will see no other reason for Mayweather to avoid fighting the living legend that is Manny Pacquiao. I don’t think Mayweather will ever make the fight a reality. He will be the one fighter in boxing history looked upon by his peers as being afraid to fight another fighter. Holmes, Hagler, Hearns, Leonard, Duran have all questioned Mayweather. What a shameful way to go out. Manny Pacquiao has had a million more obstacles in life than Mayweather. He’s came further in life than Maywether, He’s accomplished more meaningful things in boxing and life than Mayweather. He is loved and adored more than Mayweather. He has more sponsors than Mayweather. He will go down in history as the greatest pure fighter ever and the number 1 or 2 greatest fighter of all time. Robinson, Duran and Pacquiao are without question the greatest fighters in boxing history. In their prime, at their weight class, no one beats them. Manny Pacquiao is truly a fighter we need to admire and enjoy watching. There will never be another one.

To be fair, Arum does not match his guys against Golden boy’s fighters. But it happens the other way around too. As a fan, I hate that. All I ask for is great boxing. Stop defending the boxers and demand they face each other. I am so sick of the dumb fans.
Do you really think Manny or Floyd care about me or you? If they did they would give us what we want.
I am not emotionally charged on who wins or loses. I will call out whomever I feel is stalling in the fight. I am not trying to predict who will win. I will admit Floyd is the favourite and probably more so because of Manny’s recent brutal fights.

El Hueso – Then it would be obvious that Floyd is avoiding Pacquaio. Because the boxing articles and fans would make it clear that they don’t appreciate Arum only matching up his fighters and won’t let Manny fight Floyd. Floyd at that point couldn’t use the money argument and be credible because everyone would know why Top Rank is losing money and PPV buys.

Urone I pay no attention to what promoters or trainers say. I lsten to the boxers themselves. Manny and Floyd like any other titlist will get called out by every fighter who wants to win a title. Manny and Floyd are cash cows so they get called out more than most other titlists.
It s impossible to face everybody. It comes across as ducking when a highly ranked fighter gets bypassed for a lower ranked fighter. We know that $ talks and a dangerous fighter gets passed because he brings nothing to the table. with so many titles today champs pick the most $ for less risk in most cases. It is not fair.
Ali fought 3-4 times a year. Today with the $ he makes, Floyd fights once a year. He can’t face everyone so he goes for the most money, less risk. He has 4 fights left and maybe he will face Manny but just cut the cr-ap and admit he is not anxious to make the biggest fight ever. If Manny is the easy pickings fans claim, then why not make it?

The Voice of Boxng,

didn’t Manny turn down the fight with Ortiz, Freddie saying it was to tough of a fight for Manny and saying the samething about a fight with Mosley. Floyd fought both guy considered to be tough fights for Manny. There’s only one person running in this whole ordeal and that is Bob Arum check his record involving his Cash Cows.

Posted December 1, 2013 12:23 am 


The Voice of Boxng

I agree that Norton won that trilogy. He was to Ali what Marquez is to Manny, a very tough challenge. Ali never ducked Patterson, he fought him twice and I cringed because Patterson was my favourite at that time. He playfully said some fighters could not walk in his shoes etc. but he faced them when he was young.
In his later years he knew he could not face everyone but he called out Big George when he was the most feared. The same with Liston. He demanded Frazier when he was the champ. He did not make excuses to avod that fight. Even Sugar Ray passed over Hagler and some guys. He avoided a rematch vs Hearns until late and he lost but got a draw. They were past their prime and it was not as huge as t would have been earlier. This is the same with Manny & Floyd and it was with Jones & Hopkins. Ali was great and so was Leonard and so is Floyd. He just needs to demand Manny rather than dance around him. Win or lose he is great and has achieved a lot.
There can’t be two best of this era when the chance was there for them to meet. One guy is calling out the other and he, family and friends seem to be finding excuses. Let us clear up the issue of who really wants to fght by each guy saying, will not rest until I prove I am better than the next guy. Stop the he msut face somebody first.

Against guys with stone for legs, Floyd looks like a God, who has so many of his fans fooled… However when it comes to Manny, all Floyd’s antics from the start have been aimed at running out the clock or hoping he’d lose a step, by cleverly making it look like Manny and Arum are always at fault. When the dirty little TMT secret is that even Floyd himself fears that, against a warrior like Manny who can actually come after and keep up with Floyd, means Floyd is no Marquez!! Not at all willing to take Manny’s onslaught to fight back like Juan does… And Oscar and Cotto showed glimpses of what Manny will do to Floyd, only twice as well, with more power, many more punches, and from BOTH hands… And that scares the HELL out to of Floyd and his fans who pretend not to fear the same!

Voice of boxing said: “Ali would never ask a fighter to beat another fighter to get a title shot.” That’s not true. I suggest you watch more of Ali interviews. He demanded quite a few fighters prove themselves first before getting a fight with him. For example: Ken Norton, Floyd Patterson, and a few others. Now for the Pac fans, I believe Ken Norton did win the trilogy verses Ali. So let that give you some hope.

Fans you should be demanding the fight instead of arguing what the % split should be. No matter what each guy gets, you will still be paying for t. t makes no difference to you. Argue about who should win and why. No one knows for sure because styles make fights. If they never fight we will never know. It drives me crazy to hear the talk about who should what what and why Manny is not worthy.
Are you telling me that f Floyd had been given a bum decision against Cotto or Canelo that suddenly he is not worthy to face Manny? Or if he had been TKO-ed vs Canelo that suddenly he would have to face Brandon Rios or Bradley to get Manny? If the public wants the fight then we should get it. Personally, I could care less anymore, but accordng to polls, fans still want it. It has lost some lustre since 2009 but as a fan, we should not get emotionally involved like the fighters’ team are. Let them posture and argue but just let the fighters sign and fight.

Tachyon, agreed Broner would be good too. If Manny really wants to beat Mayweather, and not just cash out with a loss, he needs to take on someone like that IMO. I think he could beat Broner, and in doing so he would be facing someone that going to give him something to think about.

Old Coot – Manny lost two (arguably three) straight fights before Rios which was a gimme. He has some work to do before facing Floyd, when other fights deserve the shot before him. Let me as you this: Would you rather have a Pacquaio who just came back and got hurt by a stationary punching bag like Rios face Mayweather, of would you prefer if Manny avenged his “unjust loss” to Bradley first before facing Mayweather?

Manny should take on someone who’s going to try to adjust, give him angles and make him think, before he jumps in there with Mayweather. Bradley is exactly that guy. A Bradley fight could be a big help for Pacquiao leading up to a mayweather fight. A Rios type fight is not they type of fighter Pacquiao wants to be facing leading up toe a Mayweather fight, unless, he’s cashing out, and ready to call it quits….

Posted December 1, 2013 12:00 am 


The Prince

Floyd Mayweather made his conditions clear, that’s the power he has being his own boss. Pacquiao works for Top Rank and does what Top Rank says. That’s why the fight didn’t happen. People want to blame Floyd for suddenly demanding drug testing, but that doesn’t fly because Floyd from that point onward demanded and still demands drug testing from all his opponents. Also, since Floyd demanded drug testing, many boxers got caught juicing, so his concern was justified. Also Floyd takes the same test before fights, so he’s not giving himself an unjust advantage. And now Pac is demanding drug testing after Marquez face-planted him. Rather haters like it or not, these past years have been mostly wins for Floyd Mayweather, but inside and outside the ring. And do you really want to debate the 40-60 split? When Floyd has been the number one cash cow for nearly a decade now.

@ The Prince: So… Lately, I see now that certain people sense Manny will likely do whatever Floyd demands to cut through his prima-donna-drama and make the fight happen for the fans, SUDDENLY those certain people claim “TMT” should pass? Really? “MONEY” should leave the biggest money in history, out of the equation? Really… So, you’r saying that simply because two judges screwed up against Bradley, and because Marquez, who was getting dominated by Manny, but happened to land a literally last-second lucky KO punch, because of those two flukes, NOW Floyd shouldn’t fight Manny? NOT EVEN for the ONE thing MONEY MAY loves most, in what even Manny says should be “easy work” against a “washed up, has-been”? Not EVEN for $100M, in the ONE match EVERYONE on this rock wants to see?

Yeah…. RIGHT DUDE!!!… A little scared for Floyd, are we?

The Voice of Boxng

Boxing fans today do not understand the value of rematches. Beacuse fighter A beats fighter B does not mean he will every time. Joe Louis lost to Max Schmeling but destroyed him the 2nd time. Jersey Joe Walcott lost the 1st two fights to Ezzard Charles and won the last two. Rocky Graziano and Tony Zale had three fghts that all ended in brutal ko’s. Rocky lost the 1st, won the 2nd and lost the 3rd.
There have been many other fights where one guy was destroyed the 1st time and came back to win the return. Sometimes a fighter can have an off night or underestimates his opponent or maybe he used the wrong family.
By today’s standards we would never have seen many great rematches of the past. Fans today write off boxers as soon as he has a loss. This is why we do not see the matches we should and why guys who have 0 losses but who are no good, get fights. If you face the best fighters you will win and lose some. Manny beat Bradley, but we know Bradley is a very good fighter and could win the return fight. To hear people say they don’t want to see that fght, makes me wonder why?
The best should always face the best. Great fighters can have losses but gain from the experience. Arguello learnt from his losses and became great. Boom Boom Mancini lost To Arguello but came back later to win a title. He was not scared to lose his 0 by facing Arguello. Boxers should have supreme confidence and face the best. But today it is all about the fake 0 that causes great rematches not to be made or even potental great matches to be made. Of course there is PPV talk and promoters that also cause problems. We also have lousy guys rated high to get a shot when they are not worthy.
Boxing is a mess. And fans not wanting their favourite to face the best, allows them to cherry pick. Wake up fans, be a boxing fan and not a fan of just one boxer. demand the very best fights and not invest in who wins. Boxing wins when we have great matches. I see Manny vs Bradley as very interesting.

I think Pacquiao should beat Bradley. I don’t think he has to do so in order to get a fight with Mayweather, even if, Mayweather hasn’t taken on a fighter coming off one win after back to back losses, since the year 2000. But still Pacquiao should fight Bradley, not only to erase his loss, but also to let Bradley win or lose in front of the fans with out doubt or possible corruption.. That would be the honorable thing to do, and we all know Manny calls himself the Honorable one.

For all of the boxing fan that think they know boxing Mayweather has not fought a Arum fighter since he left Arum sighting “Slave wages”. Now, all of a sudden its Mayweather running from Manny, in all actuallity Arum might want the fight this time we will find out. I thought I read somewhere Manny has a fight in February or March and Mywaether in May. So, they would try to make the fight for September.
I think that’s why uncle Roger is calling for Manny to fight Bradley, because whether people like it or not Bradley holds a win over Manny. Really one win over a fighter coming off a loss and coming up in weight does not prove anything in Manny’s favor. Manny now wants the money fight after 2 losses and 1 win. I want to see the fight it should have happened during the first negotiation. When Mayweather gave Manny everything he wanted for drug testing and Manny said NO. That’s when Manny and Floyd were pull similar PVP numbers, Manny got everything he asked for and would not do drug testing for one of the biggest fights in history. He also truned down 40 million to fight, it would have been his biggest payday ever once again Manny said NO. People can make all the excuses the want but Me I’m going to stick with what I see going on. Truthfully Manny didn’t say no Bob Arum did.

Because although he outlanded Tim by a good margin, I’m pretty sure that’s why they gave it to Tim. Meaning, two of the judges punished Manny for cruising the first couple of minutes, then stealing rounds in the third, because like fan, they’ve gotten so used to seeing Manny go all-out, all round, every round.

It doesn’t matter if Bradley deserved the win or not. Bradley got the win, so pac has a blemish on his record, that he should erase. Any other fighter would do it, and so should Pacquiao. The truth is, Bradley took more of a beating from fans, than he did that night against Pacquiao. The problem is, Pacquiao doesn’t want to step in the ring with anyone who gives him movement, cause he has to work harder for the win. So then, if Manny doesn’t want to get in the ring with Bradley, who’s not going to give anything near the amount of angels Mayweather will, why would anyone here think he has much of a shot at beating Mayweather…

IF Bradley beats Pac then the Fight is Mayweather vs Bradley. Bradley just beat Pacquaio and Marquez. IF he beats Pacquiao TWICE then there’s no more logical Fight than Mayweather vs Bradley. The fans want to see Pacquiao vs Mayweather because they believe in fairy tales but I believe in REALITY. The REALITY is that no one sports a more impressive RECENT resume than Bradley other than Mayweather. He just beat twwo Top 7 P4P Fighters in his last 3 Fights. Floyd has only beaten 2 Top 10 P4P opponents in his last 3 Fights. Pacquiao has beaten ZERO Top 10 P4P opponents in his last 3 Fights. Thats the REALITY.

Pac should fight Bradley, that’s unfinished business even if Pac thinks he won. Pac didn’t have a very good night, he did little work and only fought in small spurts. Was that cause he wasn’t interested in the fight that night; or did it have something to do with Bradley? I thought Pacquiao won, but he didn’t get the nod, so he should do it again. Besides Bradley fights for top rank, and holds a belt. It’s a natural fight, but if Pac loses, he better drop Top Rank, if he really wants to fight Mayweather.

Man I have to say there always seems to be some condition to Pac fighting Floyd (like he hasn’t done enough in his career compared to some of the people Floyd has fought). It’s the test or the split or he has to beat this person or that or maybe drink 10 shots of tequila and say: “if simple simon picked a peck of pickled peppers how many pickled peppers did simple simon pick” 10x relly fast without making a mistake.

I miss the attitude of the old school fighters who wanted to be great, who would fight anyone.

Roger agrees with ME as Bradley is the guy who deserves a Floyd Fight more than Pacquiao. As I SAID last WEEK…IF Pacquiao can beat Bradley and make him taste the canvas while he’s AT it then I will clamor for the Mayweather vs Pacquiao Fight TOO. As of right now I’d rather see Mayweather -Bradley as that is the most logical Fight for Floyd at THIS time….Lasting 12 rounds to beat Marquez by ROBBERY is more impressive than only lasting 6 rounds while getting dropped and knocked out….and its Freddie Roach’s fault. Instead of continuing to Box Marquez while lasting 12 rounds to WIN by ROBBERY, Freddie ordered Manny to get a decisive WIN which got him knocked out decisively….ANYONE who tries to beat Marquez by knockout will BE knocked out and that includes the GREATEST defensive Fighter of all times Floyd Mayweather….Thats why he exercised GREAT Boxing IQ and didn’t even TRY it. ….Manny and Roach need to go take a BOXING IQ class….Marquez is a decent Boxer but he’s an ATG Fighter because he has precision and MUCH Punch variety on the INSIDE and during exchanges…..that’s why Bradley took a Floyd BLUEPRINT class and Boxed his way to ROBBERY because he can imitate Floyd but he can’t duplicate him….Floyd’s on another SKILL level.

2 years ago Pacquiao had a chance, now he has none. Mayweather is now an official solid welter weight with good speed, lots of skill, and top notch ring generalship. Mayweather goes into fights and take a minimal amount of damage. On the other hand Pac gets injured, hurt, and has even got put to sleep..Two years ago this was a harder fight to pick, today it’s an easy pick Mayweather 8-4 with the possibility of a late TKO, via a perfectly timed strait right…

He had a better chance to win back then than now. what a poor decision he made… Now every time he fights, he’s walking the guantlet, and taking more damage. Every fight he takes. Mayweather gets a bigger advantage.

Pacquiao needs this fight FAR more than Floyd who’s business model and contract earn him more per fight than any other boxer in history…Manny had an 18 mill guarantee against Rios, meanwhile Mayweather made 41.5 mill BASE without PPV upside and his share of the promotion factored in… Showtime is on the hook for 32 mill every time FMJ puts on the gloves…Pac Man is subject to more market risk… Arum cannot support a huge guarantee against Bradley when they did 800k last time they fought and Tim will want MORE $$$ now that he defeated Marquez who smashed Mannys brains out..l.

This writer is WAYY overboard he basically thinks ANYONE can defeat Bradley which is nuts… After the Provo bout I thought Tim would not have enough for Marquez but instead he showed he can still box and be smart…That said Pacquiao is a man of FEW options he is NOT gonna get a big payday with Bradley we already saw a dull PPV between the two of them…We all know that a Pac fight is not possible till the second half of next year so its really gonna be interesting to see who turns up as opponent for both guys… For Manny I can only see Bradley or Marquez if he is offered a HUGE sum of $$$$$$$$$….Barring a loss a bout between FMJ and Manny is the ONLY 2 mill plus PPV left in boxing so the problems lie with the networks HBO and Showtime and the promoters… Pac Mans gonna be the Underdog by 3-1 especially when they replay that Marquez KO 15x…..I say let them do it second half of 2014 if possible…

I for one do not want to see FM fight another “boxer”. He is too skilled and would win a UD over any of the “boxers” mentioned in a very boring fight. Styles make fights and the best fights are made when skilled boxers are in with aggressive, attacking pressure fighters. The first two that come to mind are Pac and Provo. Floyd would probaby out point either of them, but at leat they would go down attacking and swinging. This would be much more entertaining than watching Floyd completely out box another boxer.

History has shown that when Floyd is confident he can beat a fighter, he quckly makes the match. JMM challenged him and he made that fight. Same as Hatton. He came out of retirement for those guys because he knew they were tailor made for him. But when Manny accepted his challenge when he heard Floyd say he is not his own boss, that if he wanted to face him he would say it publicly. He emphatically accepted.

Immediately, Floyd started the bad mouthing, the PEDS and the hostile insults. Ironically, when the issues of PEDS got lnked to his failing tests, when Manny’s lawyers demanded to see the test results, he and his family dropped the accusation of PEDS use by Manny and quickly settled out of court. He has sad Manny’s wins were against drained fighters, hasbeens or guys who could not fight. Then it was super PEDS. Then he wanted 70-30 then offering Manny a flat fee when he would make double.
Now it is fight this guy or that guy. Why not say I will never fight Manny without saying why and move on? I would accept that position. Please!!!!

The Voice of Boxng

The Maynevers will always find another excuse not to face Manny. They will also always create excuses in advance. Fest Sr demanded Manny face Canelo and Guerrero. Why? So they can say he s again facing their left overs. If he refuses, they say he can’t get a fight. If by chance he loses, they say he is not worthy. Of course if he wins big they will again claim he is on something. Finally, as Bradley has no fan base when the PPV s low, they will have another bargaining chip, namely they must get an even larger share.
when s the nonsense going to end? And why does Manny keep chasing him? When Patterson was heavy champ and was stalling to face Liston, Liston just kept destroying guys Floyd faced until the public pressure forced Floyd Patterson to face him. Today we have another Floyd who is doing the same. When Liston finally got Floyd in the ring, he destroyed him twice very quickly.
I know people still want to see this fight but don’t. I could care less if it happens or not. From 209 to 2011 I held my breath waiting. But as they ignored us the fans, I stopped buying any of their PPV’s. Can u imagine Ali demanding Frazer or Foreman meet Norton to get a shot at him? No! he wanted to be the one to whip each man’s azz.
Floyd has way less wear due to (a) less fights, (b) his defensive style (c) fighting only once per year and (d) retiring a few times. Manny is also naturally a smaller man who probably should only be a lightweight and who gives up lots of weight and size which has worn him down, especially the Margarito fight. Floyd is a smallish guy too but is more comfortable at welter and should be a big favourite now. 3 years ago it may have been a pic’em fight. Both can make 2 times more than their normal purse if they meet. Why not do it, get the huge purse and settle the debate on who is the best?
As a fan, I would have loved to find that out but now, they are past their primes. It would be like Tyson and Lewis or the rematch between Jones and Hopkins. It is significant but no longer has that drama. t seems clear Manny can stay in Asia and if that market takes off, will make more $ than Floyd. Floyd s running out of guys for his B side. We know Ortiz and Guerrero did not hold up and he can’t face Canelo again. Fighting on Latino days loses appeal if there are no legit Latino guys to face or put on the undercard.
Manny should hold his head up and walk away knowing he did what he could to try to make this happen. Do not make Floyd feel he is desperate or he will act more like a Diva and make more demands. Eventually, people will not watch his fights and Showtime will pull the plug.

This pundit says.., “I’d favor Adrien Broner, Marcos Maidana, Keith Thurman, Devon Alexander, Kell Brook, Amir Khan, Robert Guerrero and of course Floyd Mayweather Jr. to all defeat Tim Bradley. You can throw Provodnikov’s name in the pile as well, even though he’s not a welterweight. As for the light welterweights, I’d favor Danny Garcia and Lucas Matthysse to beat Bradley, and I think Zab Judah would give Bradley a huge run for his money in a life and death fight for Bradley.”

GYAOOH!!!! Bradley stopped Alexander after battering him around the ring.

Tim Bradley would beat Marcos Maidana, no problem… Tim would beat Brook, Khan, Guerrero, Broner, and Judah without struggling—about as easily as Tim beat Lamont Peterson and Devon Alexander.

Provodnikov is tough. Bradley would box Provo in a rematch instead of trading shots with him. Garcia and Matthysse are problematic fights for Bradley. I would favor them 8:5 or so. Those are very close, tough fights … but Tim would have a fair chance to win.

Floyd would be a 5:1 fav to beat Bradley… and Money would win 117-111.

Pacquiao-Bradley II is a good fight… The winner gets Floyd.

Mayweather versus Bradley first would probably be a better build-up to his fight with Pacquiao than Pacquiao fighting Bradley. Only downside to that is that Mayweather would not make as much money because Bradley’s fan base is nowhere near Pacquiao’s. Most fans want to see Pac vs. Mayweather regardless of how each does against other fighters. It has never or will never really be about who they fight in the fans’ opinion. The only people who consider their performance are the hard-core boxing fans and the boxing media. However, these experts will never ever fill those seats.

2nd reason, they hope bradley somehow beats pac, so floyd dont have to fight manny, roger knows mannys style could beat floyd they dont want none, plus thats one more war manjybwould be in with bradley to make grow even older by the time floyd had to fight manny giving floyd even a better shot at beating him.

To suggest Pac fight anyone else is basically protecting li’l Floyd from an ass beating otherwise, why continue to put obstacles in a fight fans have long clamored to see.

This is mayweather dodging a big fight he could lose. I’ll just mark mayweather as the biggest wanna be fraud p4p champ in the world. Mayweather ducks the best fighters pads his record, or fights fighters out of their prime or weight class and marks another notch on his belt. Manny has the what if factor, meaning he can be unpredictable, fast and resiliant more so than what is usually when a big fight come calling. Mayweather I don’t think wants any wars before the end of his career and manny has the power to ko mayweather so is a fight where mayweather could lose big.

At this point in time, I, really do not know who I would pick if the match was made, there is no legitimate reason for them not to fight, the amount of money they would get is stupendous. One more thing, before Pacquiao fought Rios, so many of the so called knowledgable scribes, were all saying how rough and tough Rios was, and that this was probably Pacmans last fight, well we all know what happened to that prediction, so stop talking rubbish about Pacquiao needing another fight to prove himself, it’s comical at best.

Raheem – Bradley did not beat him, that was an atrocious decision. And he was giving Marquez a beating before he walked into that punch.

You would favor Devon Alexander over Bradley. Apparently you are unaware that Bradley already beat Alexander.

Pacquaio IS washed up against elite fighters even those in a lower weight class such as 140 (Provodnikov). So he beat Rios, so what? Rios is touch but he’s a fighter not a boxer. Pacquaio could compete against guys like Rios, Alvarado, etc;, but he never could have beaten Mayweather. Not in the past, not in the present, and certainly not in the future. He mentioned compassion about not wanting to hurt Rios. That’s a bad statement. In the ring, there’s no place for compassion. By Pacquaio even mentioning that gives an in-depth look to how he feels about fighting.

Makes perfect sense. Bradley beat him and Marquez knocked him out. If he fights and beats Bradley, he would kill two birds with one stone.

I’m confused. Does Roger think Bradley is a good match for Mp or not. He contradicts himself with every sentence. He is, he’s not, is, not, is, not…. WTF?!

Another stalling tactic by the Mayweather camp. Lets wait until Pacquiao gets old and washed up.
