Floyd can’t hold 154… Danny Garcia fights at 140 and can hold 154 a lot better than Floyd can… Floyd is a welterweight… He’s definitely NOT a super lightweight — he gets every ounce of fat off when he fights, so he doesn’t play the weight game.

Floyd fights where he’s comfortable — which for most of his professional fights was at 130… Now it’s 147… That is pretty much where he keeps ti when he fights at 154. He doesn’t believe in bulking up just because you can. That doesn’t help you.

Floyd walks around around 147 to 150. When he got out of jail he was below 145.

Auzbox truly Floyd is scared of Klitschko he should fight him next he could put on 100 lbs with no problem lol….

Floyd is no junior middleweight he is best at 147 even for the Canelo fight he couldn’t even make 150. He fought at 149 he is really too small but for big fights he will venture up sometimes Canelo was worth the risk. He made the most money he ever made for one fight. He cannot fight at 160 though no way in hell. And just because a guy walks around at a certain weight dont mean he is in fight shape. Now I am sure Floyd stays in shape but he is best at 147. You gained 15 or 20 lbs and you not as fast reflexes are not the same and you get KTFO ask Roy Jones lol…

Azzboy Floyd is beat at 147lbs, he is way too small to really even fight at 154, Ven though he has donw it 3 times But look retard when he fought Oscar, Cotto and even Canelo he had troubles making the weight. Always has troubles making 154. When he fought these guys weighting around 149lbs he still came in under. No way he ventures up to prove what? You the only moron that thinks he needs to prove anything. Guys like GGG Bernard Hopkins are anyone else who wants to fight has to come down. Of course if he fights at 160lbs the chances are great that he gets beat. He is not stupid enough to do that. Azzbox how about the great Manny fight for once at 154lbs? lol nutt hugger

It’s funny floyd says he walks around at 147 which is a lie he could comfortably get to 160 but he doesn’t want to. He also should never fight at 147 again he is a true 154 and if he says different he is a liar

Oscar was off for 1 year before Floyd… but Floyd was off for 2 years before Marquez.

Inactivity means very little with the amount of money expended on sparring partners and training camps nowadays… Millions of dollars spent by the richest and best figthters to get into perfect condition … Sugar Ray Leonard was off for 3 years before he whipped Marvin Hagler.

Floyd had his ribs busted up by Lamont Peterson in camp—so he didn’t do anything for a month of healing them… So his weight was up a little for JMM.

Excuse me, I meant to say DLH’s last fight before Mayweather was against Mayorga one year earlier.

Posted February 1, 2014 9:13 pm 


Hidalgo

Tark, to my knowledge there were no fight night weights available so I’d like to know how you know what Oscar and Floyd weighed the night they fought. Additionally, DLH’s fight with Floyd was only his third fight in 32 months while Mayweather, his last fight being one year before against Mayorga. Meanwhile, Floyd had stayed busy fighting 5 fights over the last two years prior to his fight with Oscar.

Additionally, Floyd chose to not attempt to gain weight for his first jr. middleweight bout. That’s why he weighed in at 150. DLH weighed in at 154.

Besides that, Oscar was a 2-1 underdog going into the fight so I don’t know what advantage you think Floyd gave him. After the fight Floyd’s father said,
“I thought Oscar won the fight on points, threw more punches and was more aggressive. My son had good defense and caught a lot of punches but Oscar pressed enough to win the fight.”

BTW, when Floyd fought Marquez, Marquez had fought above 130 lbs. only twice (two fights at 135) before moving up to welterweight to fight Floyd. So Marquez gave up a lot physically whereas Floyd didn’t sacrifice squat.

Posted February 1, 2014 9:12 pm 


TARK

Is that why you gave up over 20 pounds to Oscar De La Hoya, let him use puncher’s gloves—and let the NY Boxing Commission pick the most incompetent trio of judges ever appointed to an important world title fight???

Posted February 1, 2014 5:12 pm 


Floyd Money Mayweather

I never had the intention of making weight for JMM. Why give him an advantage? I don’t fight anyone unless I can get every advantage I can.

Posted February 1, 2014 3:35 pm 


Hidalgo

“He had to take a month off training because Lamont PEDerson fk’d up his ribs in sparring… He came in at 146 and opted to pay a 600,000 fine that went to Marquez rather than do the sauna thing.”

Floyd could have made weight if he wanted to. But he did not want to make the sacrifice, nor did he have any intention of doing so. Floyd wasn’t about to give Marquez any type of edge over him.

A hastily amended last-minute contract tells the real story. “Juan, we’re bribing you to take this money because Floyd ain’t gonna make weight, but you guys HAVE to do this fight because if you don’t everyone will lose a lot of money!”

Marquez being overcome by greed–and a lot of prodding, no doubt–signed the cheater’s contract. If had been a title bout, Floyd would have been stripped of his title.

Of course, Floyd needed to make some of that money back so for his next bout with Mosley, he refused to pay sanctioning fees, so it also was a non-title bout.

After that, Floyd sucker-punched his way to a win over Ortiz.

Then the state of Nevada put the world on hold so Floyd could fight Cotto before he was sent off to jail.

Then, Floyd fights artificially-rated top 5 P4P Guerrero. There was a gift win if there ever was one.

Then, Floyd fights catchweight drained Canelo. Another gift win.

Oh the hell with it. Let’s just bend over, spread our butt cheeks and let Floyd bugger us properly. After all, that’s what he does best.

He knew he was going to make over 20,000,000 so 600,000 dollars wasn’t a big deal to him… He gambels away more money than that on a single night… I believe he lost a ton betting on Broner’s last fight.

That habit could eventually land him in trouble once he stops making the monster pay days.

Lefthook, You know I got your Sweaty-Socked-Back!

But Khan isn’t getting anything but a pay check and a pension if and when he gets leveled by Mayweather.

I also do not think he is worthy of the fight having struggled at 135lbs, 140lbs and never even had a tune-up at 147!

The only solace I get from this fight is Khan’s retirement from this sport.

Exposed at every weight he has fought in will be enough to cement my opinion of him and his blown up, over promoted career!

So I want to see how floyd fight in this fight.
I say khan can match him in speed and counters punch, my only fear is khan will be too slow and show too much respect. As this would cost hin a few rounds before he get cooking and lose the fight by decision, don’t think Floyd will get the ko. As khan is open to pressure and Floyd don’t give that.

And stop with this Floyd was out of shape nonsense and it was his first day in camp too. Floyd is a know gym rat. He’s never out of shape. He prides himself on this you imbecile. His year round professionalism and hard graft is one of the things that defines him. He was in fantastic shape at the time. He just can’t deal with the slick white style or adversity. He got out-thought, out-fought, out boxed, out-slicked, knocked down and humiliated and made to quit by a heavy dope fiend. /thread

Read these excerpts from Spadaforda’s diary, PEEJ.

I awoke from The Sickness at the age of twenty-five, calm and sane, and in reasonably good health except for a weakened liver and the look of borrowed flesh common to all who survive The Sickness. . . . Most survivors do not remember the delirium in detail. I apparently took detailed notes on sickness and delirium. I have no precise memory of writing the notes at all.

The Sickness is drug addiction and I was an addict for fifteen years. When I say addict I mean an addict to junk (generic term for opium and/or derivatives including all synthetics from demerol to palfium). I have used junk in many forms: morphine, heroin, delaudid, eukodal, pantopon, diocodid, diosane, opium, demerol, dolophine, palfium. I have smoked junk, eaten it, sniffed it, injected in in vein- skin-muscle, inserted it in rectal suppositories. The needle is not important. Whether you sniff it smoke it eat it or shove it up your ass the result is the same: addiction. When I speak of drug addiction I do not refer to keif, marijuana or any preparation of hashish, mescaline, Bannisteria Caapi, LSD6, Sacred Mushrooms or any other drugs of the hallucinogen group. . . . There is no evidence that the use of any hallucinogen results in physical dependence. The action of these drugs is physiologically opposite to the action of junk. A lamentable confusion between the two classes of drugs has arisen owing to the zeal of the U.S. and other narcotic departments

Junk yields a basic formula of “evil” virus: The Algebra of Need. The face of “evil” is always the face of total need. A dope fiend is a man in total need of dope. Beyond a certain frequency need knows absolutely no limit or control. In the words of total need: “Wouldn’t you?” Yes you would. You would lie, cheat, inform on your friends, steal, do anything to satisfy total need. Because you would be in a state of total sickness, total possession, and not in a position to act in any other way. Dope fiends are sick people who cannot act other than they do. A rabid dog cannot choose but bite. Assuming a self- righteous position is nothing to the purpose unless your purpose be to keep the junk virus in operation. And junk in a big industry. I recall talking to an American who worked for the Aftosa Commission in Mexico. Six hundred a month plus expense account:

You’re completely clueless PEEJ, you really are. You said they only sparred for like 3 rounds, which was a shameless lie, a lie I, once again, had to correct you about. And not only have you obviously never spent anytime around boxing gyms, and know absolutely nothing about sparring or gym etiquette, but you’ve also obviously clearly never spent anytime around junk fiends either. I mean how naive and utterly clueless can you a person be?

You’re citing the words of a bloody junk fiend to bolster your argument? Are you for real? Someone who has spent half their adult life being a slave to liquor and hard drugs? I’ve known many users and abusers in my time, PEEJ. My best mate Mad Micky used knock scag out by the boat load when I was a teen. And anyone who has spent anytime around heroin addicts knows that that the only thing that comes out of a junk fiends mouth is puke and lies. They lie more than Money May does for goodness sake. lol. Spadaforda was so out of it back then that he probably wouldn’t have had a clue what his own name was or what day of the week it was back then either.

“When they put that stupid stuff out there about Mayweather, I am just keeping it real since I am a real dude, I was ten days before a fight. How would I not be ready to get it in? I am going to be sharp. He wasn’t in camp. I was in camp. I was the one that was ready to go. It doesn’t make sense. You might come up here a month or two before my sparring you may get over on me but I’m saying as the days come to when it is time to get down where you have to be ready, I’m going to be ready. It’s going to be the best of me.”

Typing paragraph after paragraph on his shortcomings isn’t going to change that fact. At the end of the day, Mayweather’s career is cemented. He can lose the remaneder of his fights and he’ll still be considered an all time great. At 36 he’s already overdue for a loss anyway.

Floyd is far from invincible Curtley. There are lots of fighters from years gone by who would’ve whooped his ass. But he could’ve held his own with most and beaten some of the greats too. One things for sure, if Vincent Price had turned his hand to pugilism instead of thespianism, there’s no damn way in hell Floyd would’ve been able to beat him. It’s all about levels you see. Tiers of greatness. Price’s greatness in his chosen field>>> Floyd’s.

Vincent Price vs Floyd ”Money” Mayweather is simply a no contest for me. And I’m afraid nothing any of you Floyd fans say is going to be able to change that. Vincent Price>>> Floyd Mayweather. Stop whining about it already! Just deal with it and move on with your lives for god’s sake.

Not hating on Spadafora btw he could have been an ATG if he had stayed clean I mean Willie Pep and Pernell Whitiker couldn’t really punch but damn they could fight in fact I used to think as Spaddy as kind of a kind of mix of the two being a white guy who was seriously slick and a lefty.

Spadaforda was just being polite. A gracious winner. Of course he wasn’t going to boast about about it. Neither did any of the other guys who beat on Floyd in sparring. Most fighters keep sparring stories to themselves. It’s standard boxing etiquette.. Hell, I’ve beaten on and knocked down.knocked out plenty of guys in sparring too. I mean well known and world class fighters. And British, European, and world champions. But you don’t hear me boasting about it or dropping names to try and impress others. It’s that old boxing maxim: ”What happens in the gym, stays in the gym”

Its one thing getting the better of a spar but it means nothing as some fighters put everything into sparring and others simply use it to sharpen up and work on things. To put this into context Roberto Duran absolutely battered Wilfred Benitez in an infamous spar in PR but when they met in the ring Benitez clearly beat Roberto. I could never have seen Spaddy who was a lovely boxer beating Floyd in a fight, too small and nowhere near heavy handed enough.

Spadaforda was a freaking junk fiend at the time PEEJ. He spent more time shooting up down the back of dark alleys than he did down at the gym. Floyd was in ”magnificent shape” at the time. It was only after he got his ass handed to him that the ”I was out of shape” excuses started coming out. Spaddy boxed his ears off, sat him on his ass and made him quit. Floyd can’t handle slickness or adversity.

And let’s just pretend for a second like ”gym rat” ”I’m always in shape year round” Floyd wasn’t in tip top peak condition. Well what about Lemon’s PEDerson kicking optimum in physical peak condition Floyd’s ass when he was badly out of shape?

Posted January 31, 2014 11:09 am 


PEEJ

He has no clue what he is talking about. The sparring session was competitive at first. Spadafora even admits that it means nothing because first of all it is sparring and second Spadafora had a fight coming up and that was Floyds first day back in the gym. Of course the fighter that has been training for weeks is going to have more stamina and energy that someone coming in for there first day of training.

Stop spinning teflon. Spadaforda beat the s-h-i-t out of Floyd and you know he did. He gave him a boxing lesson with a good old fashioned white boy beating thrown in for equal measure. Floyd was like a lost child in here. Totally clueless at how to deal with the slick white boy style. Spadaforda was like a young Tippy Larkin in there. He stood right in the pocket and made him miss and made him pay and then sat him on his @ss and made him quit.

Thurmal Underwear.. Hearsay, huh? First rule of ESB you got to know is that Brother Gonzo always comes correct.

And we all know what Spadaforda did to Floyd because the video is out there for all to see. And that’s the pro Floyd edited version too. ROFL @ the Floyd fans claiming Floyd was out of shape. Is that the same ”gym rat” Floyd whose ”body is a temple” and ”in shape all year round”? Floyd was clearly in excellent shape at that time, he just can’t deal with the slick white boy style, or even just the slick style in general. That’s why he avoids slick boxers like the plague. Spadaforda was faster thsan him too, and we all know that speed is Floyd’s bread and butter. That white slickness (and Spadaforda is slicker than oil on rubber) coupled with superior hand speed will always give Floyd fits.

The Irish amateur kid who absolutely battered Floyd in sparring

“I was chosen to fight Mayweather because I have a similar style to Marquez. Now, after going toe-to-toe with the greatest boxer in the world, I would take on anyone. I have learned so much and I am not afraid of any fighter. It was a pity my time got cut short due to the Mayweather’s injury,” Gorman stated.

Gorman was sparring five days a week with Mayweather in a series of six-minute rounds. Evidently, not only is the 25-year-old tough, but he’s also a pretty good boxer and an excellent body puncher as one of his well-placed shots got through Mayweather’s vaunted defense and caused the injury.

“I won’t admit to injuring him, but I won’t say I didn’t injure him. What I will say is that I am a big body puncher. I bang in body shots. Plus I sparred four six-minute rounds with him and after the session with me, he still hasn’t got back into the ring. I was the last man he sparred. I had to wait for a week to see if was ready to spar again but was then told the fight was called off. You can draw your own conclusions,” Gorman revealed.

I got a hold of one individual who was actually there. He completely backed the version of the story where Peterson handled his business and sent shockwaves in the Mayweather gym. Due to a friendly relationship with the Mayweather team, the person asked to remain anonymous.

“Lamont did his thing. If anybody got their ass kicked – it was Floyd. Lamont went to town on the boy. Make no mistake, it was competitive and exciting to watch.”

That’s bulls**t. There were several people in the gym. If you are going to put the story out there, at least tell the truth. We weren’t even going to speak about it. I had a few people ask me about it and I said ‘I plead the fifth.’ The first day was real hostile. They went to war the first day. Lamont had 18-ounce gloves on and Floyd had on 14-ounce gloves. They went 8 to 10 4-minute rounds with 15 to 30 second rests. The first day was relatively even, the second day Lamont did his thing,” Hunter told

“Keep in mind, Lamont was out of shape with 18-ounce gloves on. I have to tell you, it was unbelievable to watch. I wish I had a tape to show you. They thought after the first day we weren’t coming back but we went right back. The second day, Lamont was off the chain. It was raw, uncut and things they said to each other you certainly wouldn’t say in a church. They, meaning the uncle and father, thought that was the best work that Floyd ever got. The combinations, the skill, it was unbelievable to watch those two.

“Lamont did not go there to make a name for himself. Lamont is not a stranger to sparring former and current world champions. I’ll keep the names a secret but it wasn’t the first time he went into someone’s backyard and put it on. I can’t take nothing away from Floyd, he can fight. What got him is this. The average person Floyd spars can’t hold a candle to him. But Lamont is a world champion like Floyd, not some sparring partner. And I think it caught Floyd off-guard. If they ever show a tape of that, his reign of terror will be over.”

This is same Roach who said Manny would KO Marquez, the same person who said Hatton was winning the fight against Floyd. The very same imbecile who never knew what Ariza was giving Manny for 5 years. After Ariza kicked him in the balls he let us in on that little secret. Never feel sorry for him, nor believe him ever.

Khans won at least 2 fights on deliberate headbutts/ cuts, and given Hunter teaches Ward the billygoat method of attack, I’d say Khan has a chance – win rounds 1&2 with speed, then go for cut in rd3. He can only win dirty.

I find it ironic that these pactards can call Canelo handpicked. When in fact he KOed just about everyone he ever faced and was undefeated, Oscar and many other experts had Canelo winning over Floyd and he dominated the boy all night. Now afterwords he is cherry picked. If Canelo is a easy win why are guys like Cotto, Martinez and others avoiding him? I dont see the great Manny wanting to fight Canelo either. But because Floyd beat him he is cherry picked? lol what a joke I bet the same retards think Rios was tough lol….

Pacman is one dimensional, only looks good when facing boxers who come to him with little or no defense ( Top Rank matchmaking) as soon as he fights a boxer who can think a little his done. Look at how Shane Mosley felt his punch and changed his strategy then Pac was neutralised and couldn’t do much to Mosley. I believe if Bradley doesn’t loose his mind and box him he will win easily this time.

Havoc problem is everyone is a easy fight for Floyd, He is too sharp all of these so called boxing experts including Roach, Oscar even Vergil Hill picked guys to win over Floyd like Guerrero, Canelo even Hatton in the interviews and he made these guys look silly and all of a sudden after he beats guys all of a sudden they cherry picked its a catch 22, No fighter cherry picked undefeated fighters. Floyd took all that time off came back and dominated Marquez from pillar to post the same guy that keeps giving Manny the blues and KTFO of him. I always though Manny would be a mismatch he is very accessible to counter punchers and Floyd is the best at it, And if the fight does happen with Manny it would not live up tp the expectations at all. It will be one sided just like the rest of Floyd fights. Problem is Floyd is hard to catch and he neutralizes your weapons. Oscar was taking him off his rhythm with effective jabs, He when to his body and made him stop throwing it. Shane hurt Floyd he counters him and went on the offense and made him retreat, Zab caught him with a punch he didn’t see he went to his body and made him retreat. Mannys last few fights have been non dominate on his part. Aisde from Rios who was handpicked punching bag.

Floyd needs someone by may 5th though. Maidana is out because he will rematch Broner. Kahn in on that Whitney Houston. Thurman and Porter are long shots because no one knows them. Lara is too big besides he hasnt fought anyone Floyd already stated he is not fighting at 154, Danny Garcia is 140lbs, so who does that leave? The winner of Bradley nv. Pac is slim at best because of the differences that cannot happen until the fall of end of the year. Arum probably wont let it. Floyd beats up Thurman easy, No one for May 5th

Posted January 31, 2014 2:20 am 


TARK

There is nothing Hunter can do for Khan in this fight…

Khan is not a sophisticated boxer. Flat out. He’s no Lara or Garcia. He can be timed very easily, as a very inexperienced Danny Garcia just waited for Khan to throw. He ripped off his powerful counters as Khan threw his predictable stuff. Garcia did better timing his punches with each passing round and it never got through the 4th. Khan was getting murdered starting with the 3rd round.

Mayweather is like Garcia in one respect. Floyd has excellent timing, even maybe a little better than Danny’s. The ring isn’t very big. You can cut off the fleetest footed runner if you’re a good attacker.. Khan literally sprinted away from Garcia trying to get away from his punching power.. Garcia wasn’t bothered by that.. He sprinted after Khan and flattened him.. Floyd will do the same thing.. Make a chump of Khan

Floyd is a great infighter and loves this type of opponent — because Khan will make Floyd look strong, masculine, and aggressive—like he looked against Shane Mosley because Mosley can’t jab.. But you can’t knock Shane out… Amir you knock out … Floyd will be on Khan and loving it. He’ll knock AK out in 6 or 7 rounds …

Floyd doesn’t punch as hard as Danny, but he has enough KO power to get to guys like Ortiz and Hatton…and Amir… No more than 7.

The winner of Bradley vs. Manny rematch cannot happen until September at the earliest Arums hands on it who knows if that can happen.

In the case of Manny Pacquiao, he wants to prove that he got screwed by the judges, that he should have won the fight… So it’s gonna be a matter of repeat or revenge, when they fight another worthless match up. Considering whoever wins still has nowhere to go and no one to fight. Arum has painted his boys in a corner. Floyd, Maidana, Danny Garica are all with Golden boy. So that means they still will be dead locked, No Golden boy fighter will deal with Arum. So the winner of this has what? Ruslan, Gamboa or Mickey Garcia?

Im not saying he will, and I don’t really think Khan deserves the fight, but
Mayweathers style is of course similar to Hopkins, and look at the guys B-Hop has had problems with. Like they say, styles make fights, and Bernards slick Philly style gets beaten by the athletic fighters, (young Roy Jones Jr., Taylor, Calzaghe). But you put a slick fighter like that against a big puncher and the slick Philly style wins all night. If, and it’s a big if , Khan can keep a good distance using his height and can throw a high volume of punches against the bigger Mayweather, he can definately outpoint him.

Roach shouldn’t lend to the hype for this fight… Khan has one chance in 258 million of winning. That’s the same chance of getting mauled by a polar bear and a regular bear on the same day—if you don’t live by a zoo.

I guess there’s still a chance right? Better carry bear repellent just in case.

If I was Khan’s trainer for this fight, I would tell him to go for broke for the first 3 rounds—and fire about 500 jabs and right crosses along with 800 feints. Move like crazy and don’t throw any hooks or any uppercuts except an occasional left hook to the liver—like once in about every 60 punches.

Zab Judah gave Floyd fits by being active for 3 rounds. There’s a scintilla of validity to the theory that speed will bother Floyd. But Floyd makes great adjustments. Khan doesn’t have much time. For 3 rounds he has a ghost of a chance to land a very lucky KO shot. You don’t throw away a lottery ticket until they call the numbers … regardless of the odds.

Jack Wittaker pulled out his lottery ticket and waited for the numbers to be called. “As the numbers were called I kept getting richer and richer. I thought somebody was playing me. I’m the victim of an elaborate hoax. Then it began to sink in that maybe I won and I had 317 million dollars. I was careful with the ticket, but didn’t tell anyone until I was absolutely certain I really won. You don’t want anyone to think you’re a nut case.”

If Khan doesn’t get lucky he’ll be extremely tired after 3 rounds. Do a Victor Ortiz and start checking out soft spots on the canvas. The first time Floyd connects with a hard punch in round 4, take a 10-second rest on one of them. That will save you from a Ricky Hatton style beating and you’ll have about 6 million dollars after taxes. Not exactly Jack Wittaker—but not bad.

That’s what pulling out of the Devon Alexander fight was all about… Right?

Khan does have the offensive tools to upset Floyd, especially since Floyd will be 37 come May. However, Khan doesn’t have the ring IQ, defense, or chin to deal with Floyd’s counter-punches. I don’t think he’s that solid in the body either, and people underestimate Floyd’s brutal body punches. Two things will have to happen for Khan to win: One, Khan would have to give the performance of his life and make no mistakes. Two, Floyd’s age finally betrays him in the ring and he can’t move and defense like he’s known to.

Mayweather will not want t fight Maidana, Mayweather would rather fight Khan, out of frying pan, so to speak, Khan, Maidana.

Khan has a chance! Soft follow punches vs. Glass jaw. Speed vs. speed. Young vs. old. I pick Khan to win! It will be a shocker how many people will miss the falling/braking of the 0/egg. Which is okay cause it will be on you tube for free! Sweet!

There is a story about a Boxer using drugs, not Khan, Floyd Mayweather testing positve for performance enhancing drugs, actually tested positive and it got hushed up.

LOL Freddie. He likes getting ink. Say total nonsense and you get ink. In that way he and Floyd Sr are more similar to each other than different, even though they seem to hate each other.

Most of you guys no nothing about boxing Khan has about as much of a chance of beating Floyd as Ricky Hatton had none. Roach said speed will beat Floyd REALLY LOL. Now I know why all of Roach’e fighters lose when they fight live fighters.

I do think Khan will do a lot better than Canelo did, but at the end of the day speed will not be enough. Khan is not impossible to find and Floyd will at some point. He’ll also walk him down, make it dirty, ugly and rough if he has to.

Oh Yeah

You’re an idiot Peej. You’re so quick to defend your homeboys you don’t read posts correctly. I was speaking in future tense that when Mayweather Jnr loses this fight he will not be as good as before and will slide downhill fast, just like RJJ did after his loss to Tarver. Work it out fanboy.

Floyd will not be missed once he is gone. His legacy will be quickly forgotten, and over shadowed by the fact he avoided Manny like the plaque.

Sparring who cares if a guy gets beat in sparring? He never fought any of these guys in a real fight thats a joke. I seen the sparring match with Spaforda it wanst nothing Floyd was out of shape and staying on the ropes alot. It seems like is a guy is getting beat up in the gym it would transpire to his fights. Roach thick a mere con can beat Floyd? Funny he said the same thing about Guerrero and so did Oscar and we seen the results of that Roach needs to sit his old Parkinson decease ass down. And worry about Manny beating Bradley.

It’s true about Arias knocking Floyd out in sparring. One of my spies told me he dropped Floyd real hard with a big left hand and Floyd had to be helped back to the corner by J’Leon Love and another member of TMT. Floyd’s always getting beaten up in sparring though. Or to be more accurate, it’s not exactly a rare occurrence. An Irish amateur kid called Robert Gorman broke his rib with a body shot during preparation for the Juan Manuel Marquez fight.

One of the Peterson brothers beat Floyd up in sparring too, I think it was Lemons Peterson.

And Paul Spadaforda beat the living s-h-i-t out of Floyd many moons ago too. He outsped him, out-slicked him, and thoroughly out boxed him. In fact, truth be told it was totally one-sided in Spadaforda’s favour. He even dropped Floyd too, which is a bit embarrassing considering that Spadaforda was much smaller than Floyd and could crack an egg with a sledgehammer.

Jab

Fans are patiently waiting for the official announcement? This writer isn’t talking to the right people!

Anyway, I agree with Roach. Khan can give Mayweather problems if he doesn’t try to engage him. All he has to do is stay out of range, use his speed to disrupt Mayweather’s rhytm with his jab, and catch Mayweather with a right hand when he tries to attack. It will be the most boring fight of Mayweather’s career, and go down in boxing history as a real stinger. But hey, a win is a win!!!!

There are a bunch of tube about Luis Arias and Floyd too slow to watch them, I was a minute too late the thread and tube in it disappear as was directed to utube.
There was a picture in it of both sparing, but didn’t see the outcome.
Really no shame it that, that sparing, You learn and move ahead.

Considering that they really don’t record the sparring when Floyd is sparring I would say that is a far stretch but who knows.

Roy

There was a thread on our sister site ,about Luis Arias Floyd sparing partner.knocked out Mayweather in sparing last month by mistake. they had a tube that show this I have to search again as as we were reading the thread it was pull out. They is talk about on twitter.and another place. And checking Floyd sparing partner Luis arias is suppose to be sparing now,granted Luis is a m.w. Maybe Floyd is think about keeping the w.w belt. But after this maybe not.

Well no s*&t Freddy. If ANY of the former 45 fought the right fight then maybe, just maybe he would have lost. I have a proposal for you. I live and Colorado, and you know what natural meds they have an abundance of here in the Rockies. Lay off whatever it is you are currently taking and go natural. Your predictions will be at least closer to actual results

Actually Gus all those fighters got beat before they where old. But when they got older they got beat more.

It’s easy to see Khan upsetting Floyd:-

Khan: Sorry Floyd, you owe it to the fans to pick a more credible opponent, I’m not going to fight you.

Floyd: Oh. I’m a bit upset about that.

If Ariza feeds him some of those shakes that Freddie knew Manny was sipping on, but didn’t know what the ingredients were, he might pull off a shocker. #cheaters

If khan uses a gun he can win.

Posted January 30, 2014 5:36 pm 


Gus

If MMayweather sticks around long enough he will get beat. Cases in point Leonard. Ali, Louis ,Chavez, Duran, and they were among the greatest. Calzhage, MArciano got out at the right time.

No comparison to RJJ. Floyd still has his speed and he has great boxing skills. Roy used his speed but was not great technically in his form. So since he slowed down he was easier to hit. And his chin seemed to be broke after he was KOd. So no comparison at all

Posted January 30, 2014 5:22 pm 


Oh Yeah

Floyd is going to lose his ‘0’ in this one. Khan will hand out a calculated beat down to which Mayweather Jnr will never return from, the likes of RJJ comes to mind. Khan is too big, too fast, too powerful, too busy for Lil Floyd. The sooner people accept this is what lies in the future the sooner they can jump on the next band wagon. Khan by embarrassingly easy UD.

I’d say that Amir’s chances of beating Floyd Jr. are about as good as Woody Allen’s are to beat Roy Jones Jr. Well, maybe not.

Jerry Quarry – “A Quarry never gives up”

I think the right trainer like Virgil Khan has a chance. Not a 100 percent chance but a chance to maybe even shake up Mayweather. Gonna be interesting

That proves it, Freddy has certifiably lost it.

Freddie, has very serious issues with his dopamine medication. I have seen all off amirs bouts, he has no chance whatsoever! The problem here, is people do not like floyds skills because he neutralises his opponents effectiveness!

Posted January 30, 2014 4:07 pm

Mayweather turns his back to the right hand, so if Khan concetrates on fast lefts, with his speed and power he could cause some damage over a few rounds. If he looks for a knockout it would be a mistake.

Posted January 30, 2014 4:03 pm 


PEEJ

It would be an enormous upset if he did pull it off but that isn’t gonna happen. Khan is to chinny to go the full distance with Floyd
