Guerrero is a dog… Floyd did much better with Canelo and DLH.

Those were the 1 and 2 highest grossing fights of ALL TIME!!!!

How troubling is that??? … May-Pac would be another record-breaker.

According to Nevada State Athletic Commission records, all five of Mayweather’s fights between the start of 2009 and mid-2013 (against Juan Manuel Marquez, Shane Mosley, Victor Ortiz, Miguel Cotto, and Robert Guerrero) were contested in front of EMPTY seats. Even with 1,459 complimentary tickets being given away, there were 139 EMPTY seats for Mayweather-Guerrero. More troubling were credible reports that Mayweather-Guerrero registered only 850,000 pay-per-view buys

–“What’s this fight going to do for my legacy?” Floyd asked before squaring off against Ricky Hatton two-and-a-half years ago. “I got no fake answer. It’s not going to do nothing for my legacy. I’m fighting because I’m a business man. I’m like Bob Barker. ‘Come on down.’ If the price is right, let’s make it happen.”

- I think the money would be good with Pacquioa, dont ya?

Kudos, Whocares! When has a great fighter ever cared about keeping money from a rival promoter? PBF is simply making up another excuse. If he were a “great” fighter he would want to test himself against another “great” fighter. Instead, PBF wants to make more money. Thus, he will chose to fight Khan and, owing to Khan’s British fan base, he will stage a very lucrative fight in England. The fight will be very good for his bank account but, hopefully, it will be rembered for what it is – a shrewd business decision by a lesser boxer who refused to fight the best fighters in their prime or, in Pacquaio’s case, ever. I mean the thought of selecting Khan (or Maidana) over Pacquaio is completely ridiculous. It strips all credence from PBF and shows him for what he is – a bullsh@t artist with a yellow streak.

Whocares

Let me ask you guys, why does a boxer (Mayweather), who is allegedly so much better than another (Pac) and makes so much more money, repeated mock and make fun of that other boxer? Is it shear poor character, jealousy or is it fear? Each one of these reasons are embarrassing. Poor character is a turn off, no matter how good you are. Only die hard fans (PEEJ, Sredmond) will dismiss it. Jealousy is also embarrassing. Why jealous, insecure? Not enough recognition? Too boring and knows it? The third reason is IMO the most likely one, fear. Afraid of losing what defines his entire legacy, the “0″. Once that is gone, his accomplishments, in his eyes, are all reduced to very little. It’s basically the fear to lose all he has except, including the money making potential and life style. All in all, it has become embarrassing, the mocking of another fighter and coming up with another excuse or condition every other week…
Floyd admitted his fear in an interview, which is available on youtube. When he demanded a blood test years ago, he clearly stated that he does not want to risk his health fighting a(n allegedly) drugged fighter in Pac. He said that he is a family man and and he owes to his family to stay healthy. At the same time, he, Sr and Roger stated that he could be Pac easy, even when he were on Peds. That is very contradictive, and doesn’t make sense. It sounds like an excuse, and the only explanation is fear of losing, there is no other at the time this was taking place. I am sorry Floyd fans, but your idol is indeed afraid, which is ok. Just admit it.

I actually hate so see De La Hoya having so much power in Boxing…

His mentor was sleaze bag Bob Arum.. He learned the sleazy ways of Arum.. I don’t see reform in Boxing until De La Hoya gets as old as Bob Arum and falls over dead… The next guy who comes in after King, Arum, and Oscar is bound to be clean and reform minded.

The sport will be cleaned up and operating for the fans by 2060.

Peej- you are wrong again. Judges got it right. Oscar lose because he for some obvious reason he didn’t throw any punches in the last few rounds when he was way ahead of the fight. Nothing no punch even a simple jab. He gave it away. It’s to obvious that it was a fixed! I tell you man Floyd and GBP are doing it WWE style.

Still wondering how it was a fixed fight. That is ridiculous. You have no proof just a theory. Oscar clearly won the fight. And the judges robbed him, if this was a fixed fight then how come there was no rematch. Why would the fight of been fixed?

Another main reason to have promoters is to have the clout to win bids on promotional rights. So when Manny’s contract is up in 2014, Arum could bid on the promotional rights to the fight under the Pacqiauo Promotions table.

Oscar vs Tito was promoted by Top Rank and Don King. Oscar clearly won that fight. So not sure what went on there. But once again Top Rank and King are the 2 factors in that fight. What are you talking about glove size? Floyd has fought all his fights with 8oz gloves except for when he fights at 154 which then the gloves are 10oz. Ring size, well if he is the draw he will be able to get the ring size he wants. If you are a Floyd hater then just be that, don’t make stuff up

Peej- you’re wrong. GBP is made on fixed fights. Go watch the replay or dela-Hoya vs. Trinidad. Then tell me what’s the deal there. I’m telling you Floyd cherry picked opponents comes with extra advantages for Floyd, ring size, glove size, weight or just take a dive goes all in favor of Floyd cherry picking fighters he can buy.

Posted December 25, 2013 2:22 pm

But none of his fights are fixed. Top Rank has a history of fixing fights. Golden Boy nor Floyd has any history of that. To get the biggest pay day of his career yeah he needs Floyd. If he is satisfied with what he is getting then by all means keep Top Rank. And all things point to that he is.

Manny don’t need to leave Arum to get a big payday. Manny don’t need Mayweather like a desperate boxer who needs a retirement money so just Mayweather can dictate everything on his favor. Floyd fights for money and money can buy a lot of fix fight.

Hidalgo, the thing is if he wasn’t with Top Rank he could get the Floyd fight. He doesn’t have to sign with TMT but just doesn’t have to be with Top Rank. Now the tax thing that is a whole different thing. As that one agency already released, Koncz has major issues and is one of the main reasons for his tax issues. And to make it worse his promoter used to be a tax lawyer. He shouldn’t have any issues. So something is up.

Posted December 25, 2013 1:29 pm 


Hidalgo

“I love Manny but he is NOW a stooge fighting for Arum…”

That’s the most oxymoronic statement I’ve ever read. Manny isn’t a “stooge” for anyone. Even if he dumped Arum and signed with Mayweather Promotions, he’d still be having tax problems, and he still wouldn’t be any better with his money.

But if he did sign with TMT, then he really would be a stooge. Floyd has been trying to control Manny for years. If Manny fought under the Mayweather Promotions banner, Floyd would jack him up. Floyd already said that Manny would have to fight other fights before he’d give him a fight so to me that has “You will be my stooge” written all over it.

You don’t love Manny at all SRedmond. You can hardly say a word about him without including negative comments as well. Everyone on ESB knows you’re on the Mayweather bandwagon only. Where your concerned if it ain’t about Mayweather, it ain’t anything. Pretty sad.

You know its funny how Dan Rafel and List of writers/Journalist are torn between their culture;race and upbringing. U see these writers are fans but they write with no respest for the history of the sweet science. You see if anybody have is respect for the history of the game they know all fighter leave with their head between their legs. They know no matter what i say but they history has shown that a african american is and always was the superior boxing or the student of the game. The world has change and latins/hispanic/asian descent/africans/cubans/pr are all players in todays boxing culture and they are doing what theybare told to do. However there is one figher who is different promoters dont own him networks have to pay him and journalist dont move him. ROBINSON TRy to do what Mayweather was doing but he mismanage his money. Ali the same. Leonard was not as great as mayweather. Did not take care of his body..Mayweather has taken brand and treated it like the movie industry;music industry; wall street and boxing writers ;and racist; people with no knowlege of boxing all get on these boxing sites and write the same thing about Mayweather. Look pac great but he has the the same promoter Mayweather ten year ago. Mayweather leave and know he grossing 500 million dollars in this fight game when it all said a done. But these writer are angry because their writing are not making or breaking the TBE. Pac should not and will not get the Mayweather who own the music business who own hollllywood ;and Bill Gates there is something Mayweather demeanor that tell u no noise stay aways from noise fools hate. Mayweather has taken this business to a new level. While history has shown him all the greats failure this great warrior has look at the real blue print to sucess and is now writing it. Quitely maybe the next Mayweather who comes along will follow the greatest boxer who ever live blue print.

floyd who?

Posted December 24, 2013 10:47 pm 


Mayweather Family

Why do people keep bringing up Manny’s name when Floyd is definitely way better and has more skeeeellzz. he does not have to face Manny because he already beat Marquez and Marquez beat Manny 4 times and got robbed. Manny also lost to Bradley and just beat a lightweight who is slower than Heinz Ketchup or molasses. Besides, Rios lost to Richard Abril but got a decision. He lost to Alvarado which proves he is not on Floyd’s level.
Floyd does not have to fight him and never will even if Haymon, the WBO, WBC, WBA, IBF, WBF, WBU or IBO dictate. Floyd will cut off his arms first before he faces Manny. Floyd’s fans will see to it that this fight never happens. And even so, Floyd can defend himself and does not need any help. He has thousands of excuses he has not even used.
And if you look closely, you will see how he contradicts himself. First, he says he agreed to everything in 09 and even signed the contract. Then he accused Manny of PEDS for no reason. Then he says Manny beat has beens. then he drained fighters. Then he can’t speak English. Then he eats dogs. Then he offers $40,000,000. Then he begs him to sign with his team to make real money. He has losses; he does not have PPV as good as Floyd’
Now he say he will never face him as long as he is with Arum. But was Arum not in the original negotiations in 09. I am so confused. Vinny Barbarino, where are you? In case no one realized it, Floyd never, ever, ever wanted to face Manny.

So now both Floyd and Manny are indebted to the IRS? One thing that some of you are forgetting though is the fact that Manny can subtract from his U.S. 1040 any taxes he owes to the Philippines. Being a politician has big advantages here and I believe Manny has been extremely crafty to make sure his money goes to his interest in the poor and tropical biodiversity.

Coming off a decision and an KO loss and then coming back against Rios where the PPV numbers bombed. Just not gonna happen. They had opportunities to take the fight but yet Arum came out with many excuses on why the fight couldn’t be made at that point.

When it’s all said and done, this is the Only MEGA Fight that would bring boxing fans, excitement in epic proportions — much like the ancient Greeks folklore. Mayweather brings his chess game approach to boxing having an unparalled genius among his contemporaries. Pacquiao brings his fan-pleasing approach to boxing where he chooses to lay it all out and the whole world knows how extremely vulnerable Pacquiao has always been even when he’s winning on points. Yes, even with the KO loss to Marques, he’s still an exciting boxer to watch. For fans who like to watch both boxers, seeing them in the ring facing each other is PPV bonanza and like a lottery winning ticket — who cares if Pacquiao’s PPV value is lower? Them two facing each other in the ring will more than make up for that for the fans of course. They may never ever fight, and that’s an even more fundamentally, increasingly, and exponentially REAL possibility regardless of any reasons already heard or yet to be stated. Merry Christmas to everyone.

Peej, I think his point is that Floyd has made enough money already and that he should be more concerned at this point about his legacy. Obviously Floyd should get better than 50 – 50 but he should sweeten the pot to draw in Pacquio.

There will be no 50/50 split. You are basically saying in every sport there needs to be a 50/50 split. Should the bench players make as much as Lebron even though they are not as good? Floyd out sells back so he will take a monster share of the purse. Especially after 490 thousand PPV buys

Floyd is really good and will go down in history as such probably ending 50 and 0. Basically he has 4 more fights to make a statement that he deserves to be mentioned in the same breathe as the all time greats. It’s his choice if he wants to do this but it probably means that he needs to fight the following in his last 4 fights: Pacquio, Golovkin, Martinez, and Bradley. If he does this then it proves that he had a dominate run and beat the best from 130-160 during his illustrious career. No one else would be able to claim such a feat.

Exactly all those excuses he came up with where just that because he proved the testing was not in issue in his last fight. As for going to jail, he didn’t go till June so the fight in May was very doable. Since all that stuff went down he is done dealing with Arum because he knows Arum is just gonna do his own thing. All Pac has to do is keep Arum out of the negotiations. If Arum really wants the fight to happen he can still take his cut from Pacs purse.

needles is not an issue as the fight with rios proved. floyd was/did go to jail so a fight around that time was a no go. asking for 50-50 was appropriate at that time. now im sure they would take 30-70. the stadium thing is stupid. all those excuses are in the past now. the new excuses are leave arum and you can get the fight. the ppv numbers are bad. tax trouble. excuses are wearing thin.

It’s not Haymon who’s preventing the welterweight fight that the whole world wants to see. Or Golden Boy’s Richard Schaefer or Oscar De La Hoya, or Manny Pacquiao, Arum, HBO’s Ken Hershman, Showtime’s Stephen Espinoza or anyone else other than Floyd Mayweather himself.

Mayweather’s position is reminiscent of heavyweight “champions” back in Jack Johnson’s time who wouldn’t let a black man fight for their title. That wasn’t really about race. It was about their fear of Johnson.

Floyd’s latest utterances are proof that it’s never been about PEDs or the money split or the timing. The truth is that the man who calls himself “Money” and the best of all time isn’t so interested in making the most money when he doesn’t like the risks, and he sees Pacquiao’s combination of speed, power, and ability too great a risk to his health and undefeated record.

Good luck with your legacy, Mayweather. But I promise you it won’t be what you hoped for. Thanks to you, the name Pacquiao will forever be entwined with yours. And not in a way that’s flattering to you.

@ this slow Losing patience!
Floyd only takes on an almost certain victory. Alverez for example looks good on his record being the bigger,undefeated boxer but was just a poor version of Mayweather with his counterpunching throw 10 punches a round approach. Difference is he is slow on feet and over-hyped.Mathew Hatton took him the distance for crying out loud. Pac has the tools.They are both elite boxers although one chooses to fight a lot more for a more entertaining fight and is also an 8 weight division legend! Floyd can change everyones perception of him if he fights Pac next and only then can he become what Pac already is

But its slow people like this guy with no understanding about boxing can try to write something with no logic at all about Mayweather. Just hateful and slow. A fighter with 5 losses been knockout three times still making comparison be a 80million dollar fighter and a 15 mill dollar fighter. U see Pac numbers are coming down if JMM doesnot take the fight. A fighter who created option for himself for a fighter who does not. Pac is beloved and is nice but he is control and trust me who do u think smart people respect more. A man who find and blaze his path or a yes man who follow orders. Who career would you want if you were not so racist. Mayweather a no brainer. You see talking heads are jealous because one guy controls his distiny other ask what direction he should go. There was another slow writer saying scared or ducking but what about praising a man who stands on principles Mayweather said Arum gets no more money off his sweat u see greatness never forgets Mayweather had to pay 1 million to walk away now the same people wants to make money off him..No now everything is on mayweather terms is this what we go to scholol for to think.

Well, I guess that settles the debate on who was ducking who and why the fight hadn’t happened. It settles blood test debates as well. The floydiots look pretty stupd right now. Of course everyone knows this but them, as they are here trying to make new arguments to bend the truth. It is a very sad state in the sport when “boxing fans” rather defend a prima donna, a self-appoint GOAT, rather than force him to take a fight by hitting him where it hurts. His pocket. In reality Floyd doesn’t need to fight pac as long as his legion of zombies are dispensing with the cash to go see his fight it watch him on PPV. If all of the sudden Mayweather started doing Bradley-like PPV numbers he would then fight Pacquiao in a phone booth if need be. The truth is that Mayweather saw what happened to his clone , albeit inferior one, when he went up against a good presure fighter. He is scared to death of this happening to him. Adrien Broner is no Floyd Maywheater, but Marcos Maidana is not Manny Pacquiao either.

OK. I have had enough.Floyds LEGACY will be ruined! He will always be remembered as a great defensive boring boxer who only does just enough in his dull fights to get the W without taking any risks. Who breaks ppv records thanks to his opponents followers and the few hypnotized Mayweather fans. I agree with Floyd he will almost certainly lose to Pacman if he fought him next but i will respect him a lot more as a man. He could not keep up with pacs work rate and pac would pretty much walk through what Floyd has to offer. Floyd will get hurt. This he does not want no matter how much money he could earn. He needs to prove me wrong and the rest of the world. Maybe then he could have his smug face on the belt beside Ali and Jo. Again dont hate him just want to see the fight. Thats all.

Arums top rank is bigger than Floyd and GBP promotion combine! For some reason Floyd don’t want to deal with Top Rank because there is no way he can dictate Top rank on what to do. Floyd can’t push Top rank any where he wants. If I’m Pacman I will stay loyal to Top Rank until the end of his career. The hell with boring cherry picker Floyd.

When your intellect is screwed you start to think it was Manny Pacquiao who made the 2 weeks Blood/Urine testing concession. When it was initially Mayweather. Then Arum said there was no 2 weeks cut-off date offered to them. Pacquiao acts dumb and let Arum run things, but his fans are just plain moronic.

Largo my friend you are preaching to the choir. I once asked a priest at my school. If god loved blacks and Hispanic so much why would he bring missionaries with rifles to force us to accept him, coz god loved us so much. Pacturds are a religious bunch. Who are too stupid to realise that Manny cherry picked more than Floyd. Bunch of idiots. They deserve him. But guess what when he walks/talks like Ali they won’t give a hoot.

Floyd beats Pac a 100 times outta 100 times. If the fight is made, Floyd ‘d stop Pac in the tail end of the fight; this is the second time I challenge anybody to tell me what Pac can realistically do that Floyd couldn’t counter…at this juncture, Floyd beats Manny with one hand tied behind his back & without a training camp. This fight is a mismatch.

Old Coon do the math who s rich and who is broke? Who needs this fight and who doesnt? Manny needs this fight its his only change to make some real money. Unfortunatley he let Arum screw him remember Manny Owes the IRS 68 million is back taxes. No one wants to deal with Arum not even Marquez. Guys are in line to fight Floyd Manny on the other hands fight dont even sell. His only chance to make some serious money is to fight Floyd and the only way that will happen if Arum is not in the picture. Baradley is in the same boat hs is undefeated and can land a big bout. Marum is a greedy dude and he keeps all his fighter in house and broke. There are alot of big fights out there for Manny. Floyd Garcia Maidana, and even Mallinagi but we will never see them him or Bradley fight any of these guys. No one can work with Arum. Richard Schaffer,Oscar even 50 cent tried to make the fight happen with Manny and he turned it down, Now he is broke and his fights dont sell no one whats to see him beat up bums like Rios. Manny needs to dith Arum and save whats left of his short career

Murderman: No he’s just using that as another stall tactic because he calculates Manny will never leave Arum. I betcha If Manny surprisingly left Arum, Floyd will THEN demand he sign with TMT to fight Floyd… Again knowing Manny will especially never do that.

One thing is for certain, Void is extremely afraid of Pac and always will be. Styles make fights and Pac is the wrong style for Void. Think about it……..how many excuses has Void made for not fighting Pac? If Pac were to leave Arum, Void would just make up another excuse.

Void is not a great fighter, not as long as he runs from Pac. So, Pac is a drug addict?! Pac has never tested positive for PEDS………….Void might make fun of Pac, but Void is the one who should be made fun of, he runs from Pac like the chicken in the Rocky movie. I would pay for this fight and so would everyone else, record money, yet Void is still afraid to fight Pac, Void’s fear is not just a small one, it’s huge! If Void were to fight Pac, and made big money, which he would, the biggest payday in his entire career, he would make the fans happy, so who cares if Pac is with Arum as long as he makes the big bucks. Everyone knows that Void is afraid of Pac and I mean very afraid………How many excuses has Void made over the years? Anyone know?

Hidalgo, I believe you could be right… As unfortunate as it is, Mayweather’s in the drivers seat right now. He’s in a position to do just about whatever he wants. Meanwhile Pacquiao is fighting on another network with a different promotional team, and a recent brutal ko loss… But as you know, in boxing things have a funny way of changing with one good or bad fight.

Posted December 24, 2013 12:14 am 


The Prince

And if Manny really wants the fight and believe he can win, he’ll do what Cotto did, leave Arum and demand the fight, period. Pacquiao had a chance to make the fight happen back in 09. Excuses: Pac’s afraid of needles. There isn’t a stadium big enough to fill the fight fans, need a year to build one. Pac deserves 50/50 and nothing less. Lies: I’ll agree to testing with a 14 day cutoff. No make it an 8 day cutoff. Freddie Roach: “Pacquiao NEVER AGREED to take any test.”

“Nobody who actually wants to fight takes such an absurd position.”

Right on, Fight Aficionado. Apparently Mayweather has never heard the saying, “Where there’s a will there’s a way.” Because he certainly has proven that he has no will to fight Manny Pacquiao. Now he’s made the supreme excuse that is guaranteed to keep him from facing Pacquiao until Pacquiao retires. Why? Because very likely Pac will chose to stay with Bob Arum. Bob has made Manny a lot of money and they have a good working relationship. You don’t just up and walk away from a good thing without an even better reason for doing so.

Posted December 24, 2013 12:05 am

Nope, Arum said Manny was squeamish and didn’t like needles… One of many of Arum’s false statements over the past few years.

Pac probably won’t leave Arum. But if he looks closely at the other’s that did, he just might realize there’s a chance he’ll be better off at this point. Both Mayweather and Oscar did better than ever after parting ways with Top Rank. Cotto seems to be doing okay now that he’s a free agent. So, Pac could do well too, although it’s still a risky move.

Posted December 23, 2013 11:54 pm 


Hidalgo

“Mayweathers stance on Arum predates Pacquiao and guys cannot get that thru their heads…”

Oh I think everyone get’s it SRedmond, what they don’t get is why Mayweather didn’t use this reason as his only excuse for not fighting Manny Pacquiao over the last four years. It’s the only he’s ever needed, but instead he made up a bunch of other ones.

Regardless, as I’ve always said, if Mayweather and Pacquiao truly wanted to make this fight happen, it would have already happened. The whole boxing world was crazy for this fight back when Pac was at the top of his game, but they wouldn’t make the fight happen. But they didn’t, they haven’t and it appears that once again, they won’t.

But let’s be real about this, do you actually believe that Floyd will pass up an opportunity to make the biggest purse of his life just because he doesn’t want to deal with Bob Arum? If you say yes, then any contrary comments you made about Pac not accepting the $40 million dollar offer from Mayweather two years ago are worthless. If you say no, then you have to use the same reasoning you did when Pac turned down the $40 mil.

Floyd’s main goal is to control everyone he fights. He wants to be the boss, he wants to set the rules, he wants to run the show. If he can’t do that he won’t make a fight. Well, he can’t do that with Pac and Arum so that’s why he and Shaefer are making a big deal out of this now.

In reality it appears as though Floyd really doesn’t want to face Manny Pacquiao.

Mayweather could be looked at as ducking Pacqluiao, at this point. But really if pac was playing chess, he has only his king and a couple of pawns left, while Mayweather still has all his pieces… Mayweather’s sitting on a huge Showtime contract, with 4 fights left, with or without Pacquiao. Meanwhile things are getting thin over at top rank for Pacquiao.

“He would have the opportunity to fight guys like Saul “Canelo” Alvarez…”

Jeff Sorby, considering how many articles you contribute to ESB you should well know that Manny Pacquiao will never fight Alvarez because the lowest weight Alvarez can go is as a jr. middleweight and Pac hasn’t fought in that division except once, and has made it clear that he will never fight as a jr. middleweight again. And there’s no way in hell that Alvarez can make welterweight.

Floyd would toy with him, would b a total mismatch. JMM lead right hit Manny at will in there 4 fights…..imagine wat Floyds would do? Manny will lose 2014 b4 he’s a free agent. No big pay day 4 manny….

Floyd’s hard line position on something that’s none of his business is his way of saying he’ll never fight Pac. Nobody who actually wants to fight takes such an absurd position. So he’s ducking Pac as he always has and there’s no need for further discussion.
