“Ortiz had 2 losses going into his Floyd fight… He was stopped in 6 by Maidana—a fight where he quit—and he was DQ’d for illegal blows in another loss.

He’s had one fight since he fought Floyd, another stoppage loss.”

Mentally, Ortiz is a flake. Very weak. Too bad too because he has so much talent.

But the high-performance sports car needs a capable driver. Ortiz ain’t it.

Why is Floyd targeting the 140 pounds fighters after what he did to a solid 172 pounds undefeated Canelo, why wont he target the 154 fighters after all he is the 154 wbc champion or at least target the 147 fighters.

It will be Khan but not for the reason that some think. FM knows he can beat Khan but wants to test his Pacman styled fighting system to see how he will cope to judge if he wants Pacman or not. FM is smarter than many give him credit for. Easy pay day SURE, but there is more behind it.

Next week Floyd’s opponent will be announced as Khan or Garcia. Neither has a chance. Fact is if Floyd has only 3-4 fights left the opponents should be Pacquiao at 147 and GGG and Martinez at 154. Win all 3 and he’d buoy his rep and HOF standing. But he won’t, so he’ll be remembered as much for ducking opponents as he will be for his skills.

Khan has been knocked over by super featherweights in the past. Faded lightweight Julio Diaz knocked him down last time out and we all know Garcia spanked Khan’s ass big time. Khan has no belt and has never fought at welterweight. How can he possibly be in line for a shot against FMJ? If that fight happens it will turn boxing into a joke. Khan just wants a retirement pay day. Please don’t make it happen Floyd, you will lose a lot of respect and your legacy will be a joke.

Wrote “Hec Floyd beat fighters on the decline? Oscar was still a top contender when Floyd schooled him the first three rounds were close yes. But after that he was shut out and didnt land anything like he did Shane, And this was before Manny made Oscar quit. Hatton, Ortiz and even Canelo were all undefeated until they faces Floyd. Problem is he make great fighters look like journeymen so people think they on the decline. He beat everyone at 140 and 147 worth talking about. Corrales Manfready Baldimoir Castello the list goes on. Manny beat everyone Floyd had already been through except for Cotto. Floyds was with Top rank Arum derailed a lot of these big fights from happening like Oscar who Floyd called out for years and Cotto. Thats why he left Top rank. Gatti has another beast that Floyd destroyed. Manny simply is not the fighter he use to be even before the K.O. he couldnt KO a feather punching Bradley or a punching bag like Rios. Manny would be K.Oed again if he faced anyone other than these handpicked fighters. Marquez dropped him twice and the previous fighter were giving to Manny he never Convincingly beat Marquez. And Marquez didnt win one round agaisnt Floyd. Manny simply out works fighters, they have these guys at a catch weight like Cotto and Oscar. Everyone manny foghts has trouble making weight, And anyone who dont have trough or is a natural welter beat him. Arum derailed Floyd Vs. Manny many times Manny is a puppet dude has offered 30 mil and turned it down fought Marquez for 3 mil and gets KTFO. Floyd makes 100 mil a fight, Manny is a waste of time. Maybe if he avenges like losses and beast some real contenders like Danny Garcia, Broner or even a Cotto rematch people will show interest but again Arum was never interested in seeing it because he knows his boy will leave on a his back again, 45 have tried 45 have failed.”

Hahahaha typical hypocrite and a liar ….

I didn’t even read the comment as soon as I read the beginning when he says Oscar won first three rounds then was a shotout and when he said floyed faced undefited Ortiz???????

PEEJ.., “Tark Canelo had been fighting since he was 15. He grew up in the pro game. He got all the experience he was gonna get. another 40 fights was not going to help him.”

Wrong!

Extensive amateur experience always helps you tremendously… Guys like Rignodeaux, Lomachenko, and Golovkin all fought over 350 amateur fights. They were in training all the time for years and faced every conceivable style—and dozens of extremely clever, world class opponents who threw the book at them. There’s nothing you get in the pro game that equals it as to the variety of styles and physical types you face. You spar more rounds because you always have fights coming up. And in a crowded division you can rack up 300 to 400 fights.

Pro fighters often sit around for months with little or no sparring. Many have a maintenance schedule of running, lifting, and the like—but the learning curve is not as sharp. The fights are seldom. The sparring haphazard. The whole discipline suffers, because you can train for months for 3 minutes of work if you don’t get the right opponents. Canelo is a boxer and counterpuncher. He’ll expand his game to a limited degree from here—because he doesn’t have a lot of amateur experience to draw on, and he’s already at a level where he will not stay busy.

Kovalev and Stevenson had 4 fights each this year. Pundits acted as if that’s a lot of activity. I guarantee you they won’t have that many fights next year.

HECDOG, Pacquiao* hardly “destroyed” Rios. in fact, “he ran like a coward”, which is precisley what you denigrate Mayweather for(?!). the only lasting damage that Pacquiao* inflicted on Rios was on his pride. otherwise, Rios is as fresh as he was before the opening bell of his bout v. Pacquiao*. No KO. No KD. NO memorable exchanges. just Pacquiao* darting, potshotting, and “running” towards the scorecard decision, which was a foregone conclusion as long as Pacquiao* remained conscious at the final bell.

Peej give the propaganda a rest if Cotto fights Martinez it will be for the mw championship that’s why they’ll fight at 160. Martinez had the catchweight with Williams because he had the leverage. Bottom line is when both Martinez and 3G say they can make 54 to fight Floyd until he calls their bluff you have to take their word for it.

Posted December 3, 2013 5:56 pm 


Hec Dog

Ghetto Thug my friend, Manny Pacquiao put on a boxing clinic when he destroyed and strategically dissected a tough Brandon Rios. Mayweather has never put on this type of display. Manny Pacquiao reminded me of Guillermo Rigondeaux when he outsmarted and outclassed the supposed great fighter that was Nonito Donaire. Manny moved gracefully around the ring and hit Rios with any shot he wanted. His speed was a blur. The fastest in boxing today. Manny displayed the versatility that many never felt he had. If you combine Manny’s speed of foot and hand with the brutal power he possesses, Manny Pacquiao can beat anyone including GGG, Ward and of course Floyd Mayweather. I’ve studied all of their styles, and Manny is the most unique. You must all remember that Manny took a year off before putting on this classic boxing exhibition for the ages. He’s only going to get better. GGG is a great challenge. He is incredibly talented and he comes to fight. I’m not saying a fight between manny and GGG wouldn’t be tough for Manny, but GGG has a style that would get him hurt against Manny Pacquiao. Trust me on this.

Posted December 3, 2013 5:55 pm 


PEEJ

No because GGG has never made 154 so there is no proof he can make 154. Martinez can’t make 154 and that is coming from his and his teams mouth. That is why the Williams rematch was at a catch weight of 157. Because they said he would have to cut off a limb to make 154. So that holds no water. Funny Dawson said he could make 168 and after everybody said he was drained, Canelo said he could make 152 and everybody said he was drained. So until they can prove they can make 154 comfortably then the fight is not worth mentioning. As a matter of fact Martinez said he would fight Cotto but it would have to take place at 160. Why is that?

Posted December 3, 2013 5:51 pm

REM you do realize every boxer signed with 50 has lost right. Except for Gamboa and how many times has he fought? So your statement is very very wrong. And the only reason he said sign with TMT is because they can’t do business with Arum. That is all on Arum because he is a greedy old man. Once again I ask, has that stadium started to be built yet?

Posted December 3, 2013 5:48 pm 


Fight Aficionado

“GGG is also not in their weight class so there is no point in talking about it” – Floyd has 2 belts at 154 and GGG and Martinez both offered the fight at 154. So while it’s true there’s no point in talking about GGG, the reason is because Floyd will never fight him, not because he’s out of the weight class.

Posted December 3, 2013 5:45 pm 


REM

I have a better idea. Pac is established in the west so he won’t benefit from signing with Floyd but if Floyd signs under Pac promotions Pac can make him an even bigger star world wide. GTFOH with Pac signing under Floyd what does the world boxing icon look like signing with weak a$$ tmt who’s at the bottom of the business. SMS has already past tmt with the signing of Gamboa a fighter who’s better than anyone at tmt. Back to my point Pac can do more for Floyd than vice versa.

Pacquiao may make more money taking rhe Floyd Fight on Showtime but Top Rank will LOSE more money in the long run because HBO will feel burned….Pacquiao needs to stand UP for HIMSELF and demand a Floyd Fight on Showtime or have Floyd buy him out of his contract with Top Rank….Arum let Pacquiao Fight Mosley on Showtime when he thought it was to HIS benefit but now he won’t let Pac face Floyd on Showtime.

Because Pac has lost 2 of his last 3 fights. That is why they are saying he needs to beat Bradley. Showtime is of course on board because of the money it will generate. But Arum says HBO is on board and Pac does not even have a contract with HBO which means Arum is really not on board.

Jab

Sure, Mayeather maybe looking forward to revealing his May 3rd opponent next week, but as far as I’m conerned if it isn’t Pacquiao the fight doesn’t matter!

See, I recall Mayweather saying “we put fighters on our undercard to build them up so we can tear them down,” on 24/7 during training for the Alvarez fight.

I also remember when Mayweather and his team would say fxxk the fans.

How about when Mayweather said “Manny Pacquiao, yes, your next,” during the press conference for the Victor Ortiz fight, then denied saying that when it’s all over the internet.

And when Mayweather said he would fight Pacquiao on the condition Pacquiao dropped the defamation lawsuit against him.

Pacquiao says “I am willing to fight Mayweather, so it’s up to him.” Even uncle Roger said “Pacquiao needs to fight Floyd.” Arum is on board, and Showtime wants to start talks for the fight.

But Roger now says “Pacquiao needs to beat Bradley to create interest for Floyd fight,” like he has no clue fans already been waiting years for the fight. Mayweather Sr. adds he thinks “Pacquiao needs to beat Canelo or Guerrero to redeem himself for Floyd Jr. fight.”

So regardless of who Mayweather faces, it just doesn’t mean anything if it isn’t Pacquiao.

TARK

Canelo was young all right… Only 22 when he signed to fight Floyd.

Saul had virtually no amateur experience to call on. You can’t buy extensive amateur experience. You need many calendar years to acquire it—like Rigondeaux, Golovkin, and Lomachanko—3 of the greatest amateurs ever. They are masters of the game.

Kovalev had a far lesser number of amateur fights, but still over 200. You could tell as soon as the first bell sounded—from the way Kov navigated the ring with a mastery that green kids like Canelo and Cleverly can’t match.

Floyd needs to fight a more physically mature world champ like Danny Garcia, who had 120 amateur fights. Garcia has no weight issues to destroy his effort. He conquered several well known world champions with his withering firepower. Danny doesn’t have a masterful jab, a weapon that’s needed to beat Floyd—but he has unreal leverage on his left hook—and it’s possible to catch Floyd with it…

Mosley is not a great finisher. If Danny gets you going he puts you away.

GGG is the top middleweight in the world bar none. It’s not his fault that he’s beating up everyone, and he stays busy. This is a young, talented skilled fighter. Mayweather wouldn’t dare fight this guy. The only guy that could beat him is Manny Pacquiao. He’s fast enough and strong enoughregardless of the size. Many can barely make 145. He’s actually a super light weight beating much bigger opponents, which makes his legacy that much more impressive. His 8th title victory over Margarito was a classic destruction of a much larger opponent. Margarito out weighed Manny by more than 15 pounds. Don’t ever think Manny can’t beat GGG, because he can and will if they fight. This is the exact reason people love Manny and don’t respect Mayweather. Manny has no fear, Floyd is scared to death to take on anyone that may challenge him.

Beat up Macklin after Martinez slayed him and he dropped one to Sturm within a 3 or 4 fight span???? AGAIN GGG’s fans are responsible for this calling on the carpet his name is being bandied about at a level he has NOT attained and thus he will be the subject of serious scrutiny and ire hanging at 160 and waiting for the next cadaver they can find for him…. We are NOT fooled…

Mayweather Vs, Kahn makes the most sense money wise. The fght will be huge becuae Kahn is from England and they show up and out it will generate 100 mil + easy. Yes he has no chance of winning but with a good sales pitch they both will earn big. Bradley nor Manny will get a fight because of Bob Arum they are with Top rank. Garcia wouldnt be a big enough ppv event yet.Maybe the nixt fight but Kahn is the logical choice.

I just hope that it is not Khan….I mean that would be ZZZZZZZZZZ……IT WIL NOT be Bradley as the Mayweathers want Paquiao ti fight Bradley as a requisite to him fighting Money. Garcia will be a much interesting fight. We all know KHAN has zero chances of beating Money.

Gennady Golovkin is a middleweight he is 160 way to big dude. Floyd had trouble making 152 against Alverez and Cotto. He is a 147 he already said his next bout will be at 147, he is a small guy, fighters like Martinez or GGG they need to come down . The only reason he took Alverez was because of his following GGG hasnt fought anyone. Besides GGG dude is 160 pounder you talking about like a 30 pound weight difference on fight night if they met at 154 after the weigh in dude could blow up to like 175. Hell no Floyd had trouble making 152

who gives a crap about Floyd or Pac with respect to GGG. He should be fighting MWs, and if his frame is big enough, SMWs, not guys who don’t even make the 147 limit at weigh-in.

Hec Floyd beat fighters on the decline? Oscar was still a top contender when Floyd schooled him the first three rounds were close yes. But after that he was shut out and didnt land anything like he did Shane, And this was before Manny made Oscar quit. Hatton, Ortiz and even Canelo were all undefeated until they faces Floyd. Problem is he make great fighters look like journeymen so people think they on the decline. He beat everyone at 140 and 147 worth talking about. Corrales Manfready Baldimoir Castello the list goes on. Manny beat everyone Floyd had already been through except for Cotto. Floyds was with Top rank Arum derailed a lot of these big fights from happening like Oscar who Floyd called out for years and Cotto. Thats why he left Top rank. Gatti has another beast that Floyd destroyed. Manny simply is not the fighter he use to be even before the K.O. he couldnt KO a feather punching Bradley or a punching bag like Rios. Manny would be K.Oed again if he faced anyone other than these handpicked fighters. Marquez dropped him twice and the previous fighter were giving to Manny he never Convincingly beat Marquez. And Marquez didnt win one round agaisnt Floyd. Manny simply out works fighters, they have these guys at a catch weight like Cotto and Oscar. Everyone manny foghts has trouble making weight, And anyone who dont have trough or is a natural welter beat him. Arum derailed Floyd Vs. Manny many times Manny is a puppet dude has offered 30 mil and turned it down fought Marquez for 3 mil and gets KTFO. Floyd makes 100 mil a fight, Manny is a waste of time. Maybe if he avenges like losses and beast some real contenders like Danny Garcia, Broner or even a Cotto rematch people will show interest but again Arum was never interested in seeing it because he knows his boy will leave on a his back again, 45 have tried 45 have failed.

Was Buster Douglas Great when he stopped Tyson? Reality is that Mayweather has fought a slew of boxers who have more accomplishments and are greater than the guys who defeated these noteworthy boxers YET Mayweather has NOT had that off night nor been taken down because he is GREAT… The only guy on that list who was Great that knocked off a Great fighter is Marquez and Mayweather treated him like a Rag Doll…

Danny Garcia has a chance to beat Floyd. I love to watch him. He’s great at timing rapid fire shots and nailing you between your punches. Just a natural ability he has. He’s great at taking a hard shot and getting his counter shot in there. The world won’t end when Floyd loses a fight.

People were amazed when Ralph Jones beat Ray Robinson, but everyone has somebody who can beat them. Floyd has been lucky so far because he never met a peak great fighter. Danny has in his last fight. Danny is moving in on his peak performance within the next couple years or so. He’s about 26 or 27, has had some great wins, is about 27-0, and smashed the guy they’re trying to set Floyd up with.

There are a lot of fights that can’t be made for one reason or the other. When he was contracted to HBO there where a lot of fighters contracted to Showtime and the fight couldn’t be made. Williams was overrated and couldn’t stay at a weight class long enough. Margacheato should never be brought into the conversation, he is a cheater. He has fought a lot of HOF fighters. But you can break down any fighter and say he ducked fighters or fought this guy instead of that guy. Not hard at all to break down dang near any fighters resume in boxing.

Pac declined the fight, which is understandable, why would he want to take an L when he can make money fighting these guys that are brawlers that are perfect for his style.

I like ggg and his resume is what it is I like mayweather as a boxer and has a decent resume but I can’t stand people when they attack every mayweather opponent and justify every bs he does and attack everyone … Everytime someone appears as a p4 p boxer mayweather fans start attacking , first PAC then was Canelo before the fight was announced all these mayweather fans were saying Canelo “fought no one ,he is green, he lost against trout , he comes at fight night 180 pounds ” etc… But as soon as the fight was over Canelo suddenly became the best boxer outside mayweather in boxing today for them.
..lol … Now the target is ggg … Wich I happen to agree with those day that ggg is to big for mayweather and I don’t think is fair to ask for that fight but just because ggg is in a radar and started to become popular is not a reason to attack him day and night and all racist those who criticize mayweather !!!!

Reality is that Martinez had to MOVE UP and take hard fights to finally get his shot and maybe GGG will have to do the same, a couple years ago no one was discussing this guy much even in hardcore circles…He bangs out some scrubs and suddenly PROVEN fighters like Mayweather, Martinez and Ward are supposed to be “terrified of him” I remember when Jeff Lacy and Kelly Pavlik were supposed to be unbeatable and spare me the Monday Morning Quarterbacking…. Golovkin has NOT fought anyone of real consequence and he does not deserve to be discussed as a peer of Martinez, Ward or Mayweather as it pertains to standing or accomplishment… He and Sergio should clash eventually assuming Martinez is cleared and can stay healthy..Mentioning him as a Wars opponent has died down after Dre rebounded from surgery and worked over the very heavy Rodriguez with his customary ease… Floyd Mayweather is an ATG and that’s a fact, if GGG did a Paul Walker he would be forgotten in a year, the man simply has no historical accomplishments worth noting, the shortened career of Ike Ibeabuchi stand out WAY more (Stopping Byrd, epic battle Tua) Mayweather is soon to be 37 and does not have to prove his mettle by fighting a MW after beginning at 130…GGG is being coddled by his fans who want to award him everything absent him waiting his turn…He does not need another 3 pedestrian wins, the man needs solid matchups 160 or above and if he is the MASSIVE draw you idiots claim he is the $$$$$ will compel a top fighter to take that bait… Mayweather runs boxing he has made MORE $$$ in one fight than GGG will in his whole career and that’s not personal it’s true of 90% of fighters…

Out from the MW division” means what? Everyone’s calling Floyd out get in LINE….If GGG Id so dangerous to the entire sport when is he gonna dilute his advantages and move up a division or 2? Mayweather has lineal Championships in 4 weight classes so since Golovkin is “better than Floyd” LMFAO he should have no issues breaking heads at 168 or 175??

Obviously people will look for somebody to beat the GOAT… That’s only natural… But Floyd is not going to pull an Emile Griffith and fight for the 160lb title at 150.

Canelo had an easy time at 154… Trout wanted the fight… Martinez doesn’t want to face GGG…so Golovkin has to wait for pressure to build up because most people think he KO’s Martinez … Then he smashes Quillin and he can face Ward as a unified 160-pound champ.

Canelo was a unified champ—but he lacks Golovkin’s strength, pace, defense, activity level, speed, infighting skills, jab, and attacking ability.

Hansa,

Like I said before, first you guy say Floyd is ducking, then when he fights and beat his opposition. The usual response is he new he could beat him he was weight drain he was old or out of his prime. With the fans that hate Mayweather he will never win it will always be something. It like when he fought De La Hoya at 154 or should I say 148 because his body doesn’t hold 154. It was a great performance by Mayweather it was he beat a passed his prime fighter. Recently when Canelo called Mayweather out the people on this sight said he would duck him, he made the fight. Then it was oh he had to weight drain him, I wont mention the other fighter that created his popularity at 147 by doing that very thing but was applauded for it. The other fight also used rehydration clauses. The excuse came after all wrote Mayweather would not fight Canelo and he did and won. I see the double standards that are put in place and recognize them for what they are, Even see how people refuse to see Arum as the responsible party for Mayweather/Pacquiao not happening after knowing his history of protecting his fighters. This has been crazy the positions people take just because of Race and Hate.

Posted December 3, 2013 3:01 am

No one cares about who Mayweather’s next opponent is! If he fights Khan, which I think he will, he will continue to make fools out of his fans. The ONLY fight that matters is a fight versus the legendary, only 8 division boxing champion in history, fighter of the Decade and the greatest fighting machine of our time, Manny Pacman Pacquiao. If he doe not fight this legend, he will look like a complete scared chicken even more than he does now. Manny Pacquiao is boxing today. The world keeps its eyes on Manny Pacquiao because he is the best today and has been for the last 10 years. Floyd can continue his cherry picked ways, but no one is going to pay to see him. Manny is the greatest.

And you also like to conveniently forget that Showtime set up a competition which basically repeatedly brought World champions to Wards’s home – and that is the ONLY reason why Ward unified anything.

Absent that tournament you would have Kessler and Froch not bothering to fight him, and everyone would be able to say “When is Ward booking a win over a decent fighter?”

Set that kind of tournament up at MW and you`ll see GGG emerge with all the titles.

SREDMOND – how can you possibly say people aren`t ducking Golovkin.

Murray is his mandatory – his MANDATORY, and he doesn`t want the fight, he has plain out said it on skysports before that the only way to beat GGG is with a baseball bat.

GGG was STurms mandatory for 2 years. 2 YEARS and the guy kept finding other fights to avoid him.

Geale won the title and is ordered to fight GGG – he drops the title rather than face him.

Quillin is asked about GGG, and then suddenly he is talking about wanting loads of money because he is a big star, right before getting very lucky against Rosado who GGG destroyed.

Martinez won`t even say Golovkins name, and everyone is giving him a pass on actually losing to Murray, and not wanting GGG just after injury.

You just willfully don`t want to see that noone is taking GGG fights. Stevens is the first middleweight to call him out and GGG obliged and laid him out.

I seriously don`t understand how you call yourself a boxing fan and yet spend time slating GGG, instead of the guys who won`t fight him.

What is wrong with you?

Are we gonna hear his fans say “Floyd’s the better man” NOOOO They are gonna whine how Gennady “was dead on the scales and FMJ took advantage” this game is OLD… Let’s see GGG go after a BIGGER fighter with skills, Ward would make him look like a RANK amateur at 168.

Bulawayo2 is a disgusting racist coward whose idea of greatness is a MW calling out a smaller and older great.

Bulawayo2

So who would you like to see him fight? Martinez won’t be ready for him any time soon if ever, Murray had a chance to fight him in Monte Carlo but doesn’t seem all that interested now that it might become a reality. Kid Chocolate, you’ve got to be kidding all mouth, an easy night for Golovkin. Barker why not, Geale already ducked GGG, so who exactly must he fight?

Golovkin is NOT Canelo that’s correct .1) Canelo unified his division, GGG is facing scrubs 2.) Canelo established himself as top
Man at 154 (IN THE RING by beating Trout) 3.) Canelo fights at Jr MW meanwhile GGG is a guy who claims he can fight at 168 yet wants a bout with a guy best at 147??? 4.) Canelo has more skills than GGG who is constantly applauded for “cutting off the ring” against a slew of inept fighters put in there to make him look good 5.) Canelo fought as low as 147, whereas Golovkin never boxed below MW as a pro….Again if GGG is “the Greatest up to 175″ them why the focus on a guy who will next box at 147??

Posted December 3, 2013 1:56 am 


SREDMOND

Man please compared to Floyd Mayweather Gennady Golovkin is not even a “decent fighter” anyone saying he’s “more skilled” than Mayweather is FULL of the obvious…If Golovkin is so much better than Mayweather and every other 154 pounder then why would he need to boil down to chase smaller guys?? Truth is that Golovkin is verging on being the MOST overhyped fighter in the sport when you look at the qualitative component of his resume Broner, Stevenson and some of the other new guys have been beating some noteworthy opponents on their respective divisions, Broner is set to face Maidana at 147, a tough out and credible, heavy handed opponent.. All we are hearing about GGG is “Everyone’s scared of him from 175-154 YET we only see him facing C class fighters like Stevenson and listening to his dik less fans try to pass him off as a Jr MW when he has never fought there…

Bulawayo2

Urone2,
I think you would find that Golovkin isn’t in the same category as Mayweathers other oponents. Will never happen, GGG isn’t Canello, he beats Mayweather up, easily. If Mayweather thought it would be as easy as his fans think why not show us and take on the best fighter in the World. He knows Golovkin would seriosly damage him, Mayweather might avoid the head shots for a while, but not the body shots.

Throw around ALL the names you gusys want…NO ONE at 147 or 154 can beat Floyd, NO ONE! It simply comes down to “who can put cheeks in seats”, either way they’re losing!

Bulawayo2,

That has been said about almost all of Mayweather opponents, until he fights them and beats them. Then it will be he only fought him because he knew he could beat him. You fan are so fickle.

Floyd has like 4 fights if he wants khan so be it he just came off fight with guy who was supposed to end his care did not happen. If he wants to take a khan fight so be it.

Won’t be Golovkin that’s for sure, Mayweather knows his limits and GGG is way beyond his. Never happen, Golovkin far too good for Mayweather at 154lb, he destroys him.

Khan isnt my 1st choice opponent 4 Floyd…..not much any1 here can do about? He may surprise people just yet? Whats Sergio up 2? He fought in april. Khan is nothing more than a cash and dash, not named money Mayweather 4 nothing.

Posted December 2, 2013 11:05 pm 


te tumbo

what does it matter whether it’s Khan, Garcia, Bradley, or Pacquiao*? Mayweather’s convincing win over Canelo confirmed beyond all reasonable doubt that any welterweight matchup is a mismatch in Floyd’s favor. there also isn’t a middleweight worth Floyd conceding anything above 154lbs, which would be a significant compromise for Golovkin or Martinez and the integrity of any such matchup itself. Floyd has single-handedly “Klitschkoed” the entire welterweight division withOut a brother’s tightly-coordinated support. there is almost no reason to post on a Mayweather article. other than to remind the oblivious doubters of Mayweather’s proven and tested dominance at 147lbs+.

“Floyd’s resume speaks for itself he isn’t lying to nobody. Greatest of this generation.”

Hahahahaha that’s the funniest thing I’ve heard all year.

Fraud Mayweather is good at picking fights he can win, cherrypicker Mayweather!

He’s conned all his loyal fans it’s hilarious.

I hope he does fight Khan it would show Fraud to be the cherrypicking conman he is.

Fraud Mayweather, keep ducking Golovkin, run Fraud run!

Greatest of his generation! Hahahahahahaha! Hilarious.

Floyd should fight GGG at 154 or a catch weight of 156 for the MW title! If he has such a great legacy, taking risks (a loss) will not hurt him, it can only enhance is greatness…

Posted December 2, 2013 9:40 pm 


It is not Khan

There is a book on it, they are trawling everyone in, then it will be another fighter, money lost.

Will not buy a Mayweather Khan fight if it takes place in Vegas. Khan actually could have a chance in England. May has no knockout power….unless the opponent stands still like Ortiz and gives him 2 chances to punch flush..

Posted December 2, 2013 9:37 pm

Mayweather will not leave Vegas…

Posted December 2, 2013 9:31 pm

Good selection, but no middleweight? It would be nice to add a MW title to his resume. Martinez is weakening, perfect choice…

Posted December 2, 2013 9:29 pm 


Oh Yeah

Khan Will KO FMJ. His speed and power will be too much for FMJ. He is one of few fighters who will be able to get to FMJ through speed and he has decent power. You heard it here first.

mayweather 86

Indeed tomatoe. You got there first. I’m expecting Floyd v Khan and Pac v Bradley 2 both in May. Then most likely Floyd v Pac or Bradley in September. I expect Pac to not get robbed this time tho lol.

Posted December 2, 2013 9:27 pm

It’ll be Khan, then Bradley or Pacquiao, then Bronner or Maidana, then Garcia. All at 147.

If Floyd Mayweather wants to fight Khan let him .. He will fight who he wants no matter what because he is going to get paid and he has money already .. He wants the easiest fights until his contract is up so he can retire undefeated and lie to everyone and himself about how he is the best boxer ever to lace them up ..

its khan. its a done deal. mayweather was just asked about pac. floyd responded “who”?” a p4p clown. pac should fight him for a dollar.

Posted December 2, 2013 8:16 pm

It won’t be Khan. He doesn’t qualify. He’s a #0 P4P NON CHAMP. Maybe Danny Garcia.

Posted December 2, 2013 8:03 pm

Its been a done deal for months and Khan has the style to make it a very interesting fight but wont be able to sustain it and Floyd will take over and get to him late on or win on points but out of all the options this is the best for me (assuming he cant/wont do business with TR, off course, which i think we know is never going to happen).

The authors name changed from Vivik Wallace to Vitali Shaposhnikov since last time i looked at article….So who’s article is it?

Seriously I hope this is a mistake by Eastsideboxing because Vitali has in the past been accused of being Vivik….Not good ESB not Good.

No more cherry picking fighter to fight.
Mayweather jr vs Tim Bradley next period
Canelo didnt deserve a shot at Mayweather jr period.
Mayweather jr vs T.Bradley at 147
Manny vs Guererro at 147 and the winner face each other.
Khan need to Prove his self first, so saying that Khan vs Matthysse at 140 would be a great fight to see and D.Garcia vs Ruslan at 140 then the winner face off. Make it happen big-timers

Floyds already figured him out, and its december….fights in May. Id rather c Sergio v Floyd. These fights happen every now and than.e.g Manny vs Diaz/Clottey. I dont mind so long as the next fight is a huge 1….I probly wont pay 4 Floyd vs Khan.

Posted December 2, 2013 7:11 pm 


the science

Hey folks, say what you will about Khan, but he will punch floyd Mayweather in the face more times than Floyd has been punched in the face in a long time. Styles makes fights. Khan has the speed, length, and aggression to make a very good fight with floyd until Floyd figures him out .

Posted December 2, 2013 7:06 pm

Khan is the perfect opponent. Fired up for this one.

Posted December 2, 2013 6:59 pm

Khan signing a showtime deal is a good sign of a Floyd Khan fight. Im interested in what wieght people think Floyd should fight Manny or Garcia, also why Garcia vs Manny has never been mentioned. Manny abd Garcia are both at jr welter Floyd is at jr middle….in my opinion Floyd isnt dropping down, he will want a crack at a middleweight title b4 hes done….floating up and down wont help him get fighting fit 4 a middlweight tilt.

Posted December 2, 2013 6:53 pm 


TJ

IF FLOYD FIGHTS KHAN it would be a damn shame as KHAN does not deserve this fight based on his life and death fight with THE KIDD Julio Diaz, a blown up, over the hill Lightweight!!!

Seriously, if Floyd fights Khan, surely this bout should be pencilled in for February, which would leave Floyd with a May date and his September date still to be filled.

Floyd could train 6 weeks and whup Khan – the gameplan (actually there are three different ones for Amir) is already done and rehearsed for him…

Heck, this should not even be a pay-per-view fight. It should be a present from Floyd to all his fans, before he gets ready for PAC, GARCIA later in the year.

Posted December 2, 2013 6:47 pm 


Ray Ray

It looks like khan although nothing has been signed and sealed yet…..haterz are getting ready 2 cry foul already……it was ok 4 manny 2 fight Rios, a punching bag moves more than him. Floyd was 2 scared 2 fight Alvarez apparently? Sometimes Floyd surprises? I wouldnt b surprised if Sergio gets a Floyd fight? Bradley (toprank) unlikely Arum would let Floyd easily outbox him, it would taje the gloss of a mannty vs Bradley rematch……Golden boys Khan is the obvous choice….but we will see?

Posted December 2, 2013 6:39 pm 


Truth Teller

I will not pay PPV dollar for a Mayweather/Khan fight. Mayweather really should fight Bradley or Garcia if he wants to pick a guy that the public will accept as a viable opponent. I understand from a financial stand point why Khan is being picked because of his deluded UK fan base, but I won’t even go to a bar to watch this crap.

Posted December 2, 2013 6:33 pm 


deepwater

khan got knocked out in 20 seconds. that’s why he deserves it. and it gives floyd a chance to talk about he loves England and such. you will also have Virgil hunter talking about how khan is the fastest fighter in the world. Floyd will actually get a ko in this fight.

Posted December 2, 2013 6:27 pm 


Pinhead

I am not saying Khan would win (if it is him) but he seriously gets a bad press, most of his fights are exciting and he takes risks, most of the time when he does not need to, he has beaten some very good boxers. He was robbed against Peterson and suddenly wanted to exchange hooks with Garcia when he was doing well……that kind of exchange can happen to anyone, he has fire and not much discipline, but if he is smart then maybe just maybe this fight will be close longer than the usual round and a half of a Mayweather fight. This fight will be sold based on Massive emphasis on Khans speed……..which is not slow.

yeah that is a bad fight. Don’t like it but the card itself will be really good since that is all Golden Boy puts on is great cards.
