Floyd you know Maidiana has no dam business in tha ring with you.Why you pick these easy fights I don’t understand I think you need to fight somebody like Danny Garcia don’t you think he qualifies.You will never be pound per pound in my eyes I think your a big coward that tries to sale yourself of easy fights.I hope Maidiana catches you slipping just like Marquez did to MannyPosted May 3, 2014 10:28 pm

This is not a fair poll, A poll in English written in English against an Pakistani who lives in England, who’s fans can read English against An Argentinian who speaks Spanish, most of his fans speak Spanish, and wont know what the poll means, because it is written in English. Come on Mayweather, do a translation on that poll and see the Maidana’s votes go one way UP!!!!!!Posted February 6, 2014 9:11 am
Hey Floyd you got enough money for 3 lifetimes… Why didn’t you take Manny up on his charity offer and help out some folks?! You phony clown!Posted February 6, 2014 2:54 am

Gonzo the Dragonborn aka The New Edgar Allen Poe (Thus Quoth the Vulture)
Most of my time this past year has been taken up up spreading Vulture and Beaver awareness across the four corners of the globe Brother, but I’ve still been loitering around here and the Golden Retriever forums when I can too.
Yes, I concur we do need more humour around here. We also could do with a lot more Tier 2 and Tier 1 quality posts and posters to raise the intellectual bar a notch or six, too. Luckily those of us who reside above the tiers where mortal man doth roam free are able to keep the bar from being dragged down to the abyss by the dregs and the bottom feeders. lol.
LOL it wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if that little transgender reptile fraud Floyd demanded Manny do something like that. He’ll keep moving the goal posts and coming up with more excuses to avoid the fight no matter what. He’s the biggest coward in the history of combat. ROFL.
Despite him being under sized, King Daddy G would actually stand a good chance of knocking that grotesque Jesus freak pampered diva Ward out if it were a fair fight, on neutral soil with a fair referee who didn’t allow Ward to fight to his own set of rules. Problem is that retarded dopey dog looking face creep wouldn’t dare agree to any of that in a million years. He’s got to have everything stacked heavily in his favour all the time otherwise he ain’t interested. lol. King Daddy G is the truth though. It’s just a shame all the other top guys at 160 can’t manage to find a bollock between them so he can prove it and shut all these clowns up. lolPosted February 5, 2014 9:03 pm
give us a break may. just finish your showtime contract and go away. im not a floyd hater. hes good. I would have much more respect for him if he just fought the best. Even if he lost one. Lead, follow, or get the fk out of the way may.Posted February 5, 2014 6:21 pm
what’s interesting is how Bears thinks that HE’s(?!?) the height of posting sophistication on these message boards (lol). there isn’t a worse pissin and moaning whiner and tr*ll on ESB. all he does is sling juvenile insults at anyone who exposes his fanboy worship of Pacquiao* or hate (envy?) of Floyd. this guy can’t remain focused on boxing for more than one or two posts. after which, he gets all pouty and pissy because NObody agrees with the pap he regularly smears on these message boards. in fact, i’ve already wasted too much time on this pouty-pisser. after all, attention is what he’s desperately seeking.Posted February 5, 2014 5:24 pm

No tumbo fight fans have not only dumb floydoids have. The world of boxing still wants the fight and no matter what you write or cry about its just pure opinion and a dumbfounded one. The biggest fight ever Floyd wont do because of arum, yet 3 years ago it was ok with arum. If you believe that you have obviously escaped from a mental homePosted February 4, 2014 11:01 pm

it’s now been a couple of years since i’ve heard any fight-fan express an urgent desire to see Mayweather v. Pacquiao*. in fact, the majority of fight-fans have been stuck in disgust and exasperation following Punkuiao’s* inexplicable and suspect rejection of stricter testing. it’s been nothing but a series of publicity stunts and promotional antics ever since. frustration has only increased with Pacquiao’s* absurd charade of struggling(?!?) to find a competitive matchup in the deepest division in boxing. that may work for Mayweather whose 147lb dominance can only be questioned by demanding that he face 154lb-160lbrs, but considering that Pacquiao* struggled v. Bradley, was KTFO by Marquez, and delivered a “boring” and “cowardly” pot-shotting performance v. Rios, there are plenty of 140lb-147lb opponents that would be favored against Pacquiao*, e.g., Garcia, Thurman, Maidana, and Provodnikov. all of whom are also coming off of impressive wins. it’s the primary reason why Pacquiao* would not leave selecting his next opponent to true fight-fans. too risky.Posted February 4, 2014 6:35 pm

Putting only two fighters doesn’t indicate who fans really want Floyd to fight. ESPN poll has it 80/20 in Maidana’s favor for obv reasons. What Floyd would do if he actually cared about what fans want is put Pacquiao’s name in the poll.Posted February 4, 2014 4:26 pm
Hidalgo: Floyd is undefeated and a top money maker got everything to lose and he is fighting fighters who doesn’t have much going on. One day they are good the next they are losing for whatever reasons. Like I said Floyd is the top dog and guaranteed will DEMAND almost everything in his favor to fight these nothing to lose never been a PPV main event fighters and will take anything Floyd’s throw at them on the table to get paid the biggest purse they will ever make. Floyd will win guarantee because of an easy cherry pick fighters that guaranteed win for Floyd.Posted February 4, 2014 4:05 pm
Oops, I cut myself off Havoc, here’s the rest of my post:
Garcia beat Amir Khan because Khan got careless. Khan had hurt Danny as well, but Khan tried to brawl and he ended up paying for that mistake.

“Khan beat Maidana. Garcia beat Khan. Floyd is undefeated who is picking the easy fight. Why not fight Garcia? Just saying its cherry picking for Floyd.”
Havoc, Maidana fought Khan several years ago and Maidana damn near took him out then. That was before Maidana brought on Robert Garcia as his trainer. Maidana is a much better fighter now. He would lay Khan out if they were to fight again. Garcia beat an Amir Khan because Khan got carelessPosted February 4, 2014 3:42 pm
Hidalgo: Khan beat Maidana. Garcia beat Khan. Floyd is undefeated who is picking the easy fight. Why not fight Garcia? Just saying its cherry picking for Floyd.Posted February 4, 2014 3:31 pm
Havoc, why would Maidana be a cherry pick? He’s a more legit opponent than Guerrero or Ortiz. Even moreso than Marquez was when Floyd fought him. At least Maidana isn’t moving up two weight classes to fight Floyd. Marcos is a legit welterweight champion. I say he’ll do a lot better against Floyd than either Canelo, Guerrero, or Cotto.Posted February 4, 2014 3:25 pm
Both Pacquaio and Mayweather are ducking each other..Lol both of them could lose facing each other cause both of there styles neutralize each other. Floyd doesn’t handle speed as well as he does with average speed and Pacquaio struggles against boxers/counter punchers thats why this fight is still so intriguing.
How can you say this. Mayweather has been running for his life from Pacquiao for 3 years. HahahahahahahaPosted February 4, 2014 2:13 pm
@get over it
Kahn and Miadana are both weak but so is Manny. Floyd will kill Kahn he has skills but it takes more skills than he has. Either way Kahn or Miadana he will win easily but Manny is no better he lost 5 fights 2 out of his last 3 and a devastating KO. If Bradley convincingly beats Manny or even stops him. Then he would be a big opponent for Floyd but again Arum will have his mits on it to derail it Bradley may be the new Top rank puppet
You guys kill me. SOS. You never mention the fact that chicken chit little floyd won’t fight Pacquiao.Posted February 4, 2014 2:12 pm

Wow, boxing fans get to choose between two guys everyone expects Floyd to beat easily. I don’t see how Khan is even an option. And why did Floyd shove Ortiz down our throats when it should have been Maidana back then, who Ortiz quit against?

Manny Pacquiao has proven over and over that he can deal with adversity inside and outside the boxing ring. He handled the robbery decision that was awarded to his next opponent,Timothy Bradley with class. He never complained or cried. Manny is a sportsman and gentlemen. Prize Fighting seems like something Manny Pacquiao would never be a part of because of his humble personality. He is has a Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hide personality. A fierce, fearless warrior inside the squared circle and a harmless kitten in his personal life. Manny Pacquiao would have fit perfectly in any boxing era. Before the Marquess Of Queensberry Rules were created in 1867, fights happened regardless weights, divisions, number of rounds and no written rules. This was man against man. The toughest of the toughest fought until the end. Manny Pacquiao would have dominated this type of fighting. He has the heart of a lion that keeps fighting until the end. Today, he abides by all the rules, and still dominates his opponents. Manny Pacquiao is a an iconic cultural institution by himself. His boxing skills, technique and strategies are complex and poetic. No one has his fighting style that leaves his opposition perplexed and dumbfounded. As we see the list of victims he has dispatched over his his illustrious career, the word that comes to mind is greatness. Throughout the history of boxing, there have been great fighters like Louis, Johnson, Robinson, Armstrong, Duran, Leonard, Holmes, Ali, Chavez, Lopez, Sanchez and Hagler, but none have ever accomplished what Manny Pacquiao has. 8 division world titles. This is a record that will never be broken. Regardless of what Manny accomplishes from this day on, he has done more than any other boxer in history. There are no comparisons to be made. On April 12, Manny Pacquiao will toss his hat into the ring as men did when they wanted to challenge a fighter years ago.. A group of men would gather in a circle and hold a ring of rope. The challenger would then throw his hat inside the ring. The fight would then take place inside the ring, but as the crowd grew, ropes had to be held onto four stakes that were put into the ground. Hence the boxing ring. Manny Pacquiao will enter the boxing ring, and win the title that should have never been stolen from him. Timothy Bradley must and will return th stolen property to it’s rightful owner. Manny is the best!Posted February 4, 2014 11:47 am

Maidana. Given that his detractors are trying to say that Maidana exposed how to defeat the Mayweather defense, it makes sense for Mayweather to get in the ring and show that it isn’t true. Also, Maidana deserves the fight, not Khan.Posted February 3, 2014 8:51 pm
Why should a fighter who walks into the ring at 150 on fight night only fight at 154 when your average 147 pound fight walks into the ring weighing 160?Posted February 3, 2014 8:37 pm
62GURU, you forward a compelling POV. the scenario you describe is the scenario I anticipate when and IF Mayweather waits for his decline to occur in a boxing ring. otherwise, Mayweather may actually be better than he was three years ago. according to traditional boxing standards, Floyd shouldn’t be fighting above 140lbs. 147lbs is a standing concession to make him seem more accessible but what we’ve seen is that even 154lbrs have problems with decisively defeating Floyd and until it happens, Mayweather remains Undefeated and #1 P4P.Posted February 3, 2014 8:11 pm
MARTINA, you’re a humble and gracious opponent. if only everyone moved on after bumping heads with me on these threads(?). i wouldn’t have to repeat myself so often . . . peace.Posted February 3, 2014 8:07 pm
I’m no fan of Mayweather, and would love Maidana to KO him.
**BUT IT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN**
Maidana hits hard, true, but so did many of Mayweather’s other opponents. Floyd is just too good defensively, and Maidana won’t get close because he hasn’t got the speed or the reach (Alexander boxed his head off).
Plus, Maidana didn’t even knock Khan down (who has been down ten times in a short career against B-level opposition), so why do you think he can KO Floyd (who has never been down in a long career against elite fighters)?!!!
Get real, my friend.Posted February 3, 2014 7:39 pm
I boxed 5 years amateur in the mid/late 1980s. Honestly, I don’t think Mayweather is that good despite his record. I exited the sport because I wasn’t comfortable taking long term brain injury risk. I was very gifted in boxing and I have nothing but respect for all guys willing to climb the stairs and put their life on the line in a prize fight. That being said, I don’t think Mayweather can “thump.” Therefore, I am picking Maidana by KO if they fight. If you watch every last fight that Maidana has had, he has badly hurt his opponent and I think he has the most power I’ve seen at welterweight ever. Yes 3 years ago, Floyd would have beaten him, but, Maidana has switched trainers and he actually attacks the body and can fight inside. Mayweather is weak inside and he thinks he can dodge punches all night. That won’t work. If Floyd escapes getting KO’d, I say he walks out looking just like Broner with a swollen jaw and badly damaged ribs. If Cotto busted Mayweather up and Hatton was able to bull him, I think Mayweather will seriously regret fighting Maidaina; especially in the first few rounds when Maidaina is fresh. Look for Mayweather to get KO’d by round six.Posted February 3, 2014 7:25 pm
He fights Pacquiao next or all the Pacquiao fans Boycott his fights.Posted February 3, 2014 7:19 pm
P.S. If Bradley really wants to fight Mayweather, he needs to get some fans, and a LOT of Twitter followers: seems to me that’s all that Floyd’s really interested in, since he thinks it means bigger PPV numbers. THAT’s why he’s so interested in Khan (and also, of course, because it’s an easy fight for him: even if Pacquiao and Golovkin had 100 million Twitter followers each he wouldn’t risk fighting them).Posted February 3, 2014 6:52 pm
I agree with Hidalgo that Bradley has arned a shot at Mayweather, but has Bradley ever actually called Mayweather out? If not, why not? Is he too afraid of losing his “O” too?Posted February 3, 2014 6:46 pm

Bradley has beaten Marquez, Provodnikov, Pacquiao, Alexander, Casamayor, Abregu, Peterson, Campbell, Holt, Cherry, Witter, and Vazquez. Pretty damn good resume. Bradley has also won three world titles in two weight divisions. The guy deserves to fight the best. He’s certainly more deserving of a fight with Mayweather than Ortiz or Guerrero were.Posted February 3, 2014 6:20 pm
Happyboy, Bradley is the only other elite-level undefeated linear welterweight champ (not THE linear welterweight champ) at this time. Bradley has beaten Marquez and Pacquiao. Even Floyd cannot make that claim. Maidana has three losses. Porter is undefeated but he has not faced the caliber of fighters that Bradley has.
Clearly, YOU are the idiotic one, Happyboy.Posted February 3, 2014 6:15 pm
Okay, but I suspect you must have some other biases going on, because your view is seriously skewed. I suggest you take your blindersoff, leave your prejudices behind and watch Pacquiao vs De La Hoya, Hatton, Cotto, Margarito, Mosley and others, because it’s some of the most incredible boxing you will ever get a chance to see. I am neither a “fan” of Floyd nor Pacquiao, I just appreciate pugilistic brilliance, and both have it in abundance — more, I would say, than anyone since the days of Sugar Ray Leonard. It’s a shame if your prejudices blind you to that basic fact.Posted February 3, 2014 5:56 pm

MARTIN, i didn’t even believe that Pacquiao* was the fighter everyone believed him to be between 2008-2010. smoke and mirrors with healthy doses of promotional hype and publicity stunts. otherwise, DLH hydrating to make 147lbs on fight-night(?!?), hardly compares to the DLH that Floyd fought at a full-fledged 154lbs for which Mayweather conceded all promotional leverage just to make the matchup happen. something that PUNKuiao* has NEVER done. even for reigning champions whose title he covets or arch-rivals who just planted him butts-up and face-first into the ring canvas. THAT is why I don’t like the likes of Pacquiao*. promotional darlings who negotiate the competitiveness out of every matchup and bolt at the first hint of risk or danger, e.g., Pacquiao* deliberately priced-himself out of the eagerly-anticipated and red-hot rematch v. Marquez to cherrypick a presumably-faded Morales coming off of another loss v. Barrera. the first instance of Team PUNKuiao* outsmarting themselves into an actually competitive matchup and LOSING convincingly. Btw, Mayweather defeated Hatton first and defeated Cotto at a full-fledged 154lbs not a promotional catchweight. i used to ding Mayweather good and plenty when he wouldn’t face Margarito even while favoring Mayweather to win. i will always err in favor of Boxing’s intergrity not the celebrity appeal of any one fighter.Posted February 3, 2014 5:47 pm

far more than Floyd did in fights against the same opponents
Pacquiao is not the fighter he was back in 2008-10Posted February 3, 2014 4:48 pm
“defend yourself at all times”
I tend to agree with you that Mayweather would beat Pacquiao now, though I favoured Pacquiao back when he was destroying the likes of De La Hoya, Hatton, Margarito, Cotto et al. around 2008-10.
You have to agree, at least, that Pacquiao looked mighty impressive the way that he did this (far more than Floyd’s did in fights against the same opponents).
Of course, styles make fights (Marquez was stylistically a nightmare for Pacquiao, but not for Floyd, for example), but I do honestly think Pacquiao would have had a whole lot more success against Floyd than anyone else. In fact, I think that’s very hard to objectively disagree with.
I also think you’re wildly exaggerating how easy it would be for Floyd to beat Pacquiao now. While, as I have said, I would now favour Floyd (Pacquiao is not the fighter he was back in 108-10), I still think (with the possible exception of Golovkin at 154) Pacquiao is the greatest challenge out there for Floyd.
I mean, I get it that you don’t like Pacquiao, but do you *really* think that Khan presents a greater challenge to Floyd? Come on, man!Posted February 3, 2014 4:46 pm

MARTIN, apology accepted but remember to “defend yourself at all times”. we obviously disagree about how a Mayweather v. Pacquiao* matchup would unfold but I’ve been consistent with my opinion that it’s been an anti-climactic mismatch in Floyd’s favor all-along. there isn’t a single thing that Pacquiao* does better than Floyd in a boxing ring. particularly when it comes to avoiding a KO-punch, never mind convincing loss. Pacquiao* has been victimized by both while Mayweather remains Undefeated . . . peace.Posted February 3, 2014 4:31 pm

get over it
I am sure Floyd is breathing easier because Pac is fighting Bradley a fight that he will most likey loose? I am sure he is scared of a guy with 5 losses and coming off a devastating KO by Marquez a guy that he totally dominated lol…Posted February 3, 2014 3:48 pm
Haha. Touché! Very good counter…
I’ve actually never said anything like that before: I was just taken aback by your fantasy about Floyd easily picking off Pacquiao the way he did Gatti etc. so lazily copied the “get off Floyd’s ****” comments I’ve seen a lot here.
Anyway, apologies: won’t do it again.Posted February 3, 2014 3:45 pm
I think Floyd is breathing easier, at least for now, since the announcement of Bradley-Pac bout. He knows the public cannot ask him to face either fighter for now, hence the reason why he wants to know if it should be Maidana or Khan.
As for either the two of these fighters, I believe Khan would give Floyd the most problems due to being more mobile and bigger of the two. Maidana is more flat-footed, which will allow for Floyd to use his speed and counterpunching against him much more easily.
However, neither fighter can stand a chance. Floyd would be too elusive. He’d ko Khan and would prevent Maidana from using his power.Posted February 3, 2014 3:45 pm

Maidana deserves the shot more, but I think that Khan can offer the better challenge. Mayweather hasn’t fought anyone that fast since Judah.Posted February 3, 2014 3:29 pm
acutully it’s looking like the Arum excuse is legit. There are many great matches out there that aren’t happening becasue of the Arum/GBP/Mayweather : and HBO/Showtime fueds… Until those fights accross the different promotional teams and networks start happening, the Mayweather’s Arum excuse appears to be real…Posted February 3, 2014 3:25 pm
However, Floyd has the same excuse for avoiding Bradley that he has for avoiding Pacquiao: the BS Arum excuse.Posted February 3, 2014 3:21 pm
LOL! Sorry: I meant get *Floyd’s* member out of *your* mouth….

bottomline, Mayweather replicates his beatdown of Gatti† v. Pacquiao* and his easy domination of Baldomir v. Maidana. Garcia, Bradley, and Khan are the most intriguing matchups for Mayweather to conclude his moppin-up of the entire welter division. Marquez already took care of Pacquiao* and Khan defeated Maidana. Mayweather thoroughly dominated Marquez and Khan would add the final touches to his ATG ring-legacy . . . unless Khan landed more than just a couple of hard shots and/or Mayweather was bothered by Khan’s handspeed(?). based on respective talents and ability, it’s an intriguing matchup.Posted February 3, 2014 3:15 pm
Floyd Mayweather has to be the greatest con man ever in boxing. He cherry picks opponents he knows he can beat and his own fans go along with it! Hahahaha! At the same time he runs away from any serious threat and his fans agree with it. What a bunch of idiot losers! Hahahaha!Posted February 3, 2014 3:14 pm

I want Khan vs Mayweather because the fight would fair speed vs speed. But if Maidana is chosen,the ref will become a factor in the fight. And that would be unfair. Maidana’s chance is from the inside when Mayweather is holding him but if the ref break them right away then the fight is over. Especially if Robert Byrd is the ref, Maidana has no chance. ..Posted February 3, 2014 3:10 pm
P.S. When I said “at least Khan has a better chance”, read the context: I meant he has a better chance *of landing punches*. I’ve already said why I think he’ll get KO’d way down the thread.Posted February 3, 2014 3:05 pm
IF KHAN HAD A FEW FIGHTS AT THAT WEIGHT,WAS ON A WINNING RUN,HAD NOT BEEN OUT THE RING FOR AGES, HAD NOT DUCKED DEVON,HAD A GOOD CHIN,HAD LOOKED GOOD IN LAST FIGHT,HAD A BELT,THEN YEA FLOYD TAKE THE FIGHT. BUT I HAVE JUST DESCRIBED MAIDANA,SO FIGHT MAIDANAPosted February 3, 2014 3:05 pm
To be completely honest, though, I must admit that I think Khan-Mayweather might be more interesting to watch than Maidana-Mayweather.
The reason I say so is that Maidana simply doesn’t bring anything that Floyd hasn’t seen before (many times).
Maidana is a short, aggressive pressure fighter with short reach and good pop. I’m sorry, but that recipe has been tried time and again, and it doesn’t work.
Khan, on the other hand, though somewhat amateurish in some ways, at least has that blinding speed, is tall, and has good reach. This is something we haven’t really seen Floyd face before, so in that respect it could be more interesting (while it lasts) than watching Maidana getting picked off as he rushes in.
Maidana just isn’t going to be able to land much, but at least Khan has a better chance (and also hits pretty hard).
Anyway, I’ve said below why I think neither fighter poses much of a challenge to Mayweather. I also agree that Maidana *deserves* the shot (and the money) far more than Khan. However, I can’t help finding Mayweather-Khan a more intriguing match-up.
But before you ask, no I’m *not* going to buy it on PPV. Hell no! I’d advise that no-one else does either.Posted February 3, 2014 3:03 pm

Floyd, fight the voice in your head telling you to run from PACPosted February 3, 2014 2:58 pm
Maidana’s more deserving than Khan, but Khan is probably the tougher match, stylistically.Posted February 3, 2014 2:57 pm
Neither Maidana nor Khan are appropriate opponents for Floyd.
They both have too many losses to fair boxers… In fact Khan beat Maidana.
Appropriate opponents in the order of appropriateness are: Lara… Garcia… Pacquiao… Bradley… Porter… Thurman… Matthysse… Brook… Collazo… They would all beat Khan with little effort — and all but possibly Collazo would beat Maidana.
Golovkin and Martinez would be appropriate opponents if Floyd wanted to fight them — because they’re both willing to go to 154. But you can’t say he’s ducking them because they’re middleweights.Posted February 3, 2014 2:56 pm
“Martin, nice feedback bro. But you’re wrong about Khan being a good business move.”
I *didn’t* say it was a good business move. Rather, I said they’re *hoping* it’s a good business move, and that’s why Khan is in the mix: i.e., sa I said, they’re *hoping* he brings in a whole lot of PPVs.
I totally agree with you about Khan’s lack of fans in the UK (I’m in the UK too), except perhaps amongst the Pakistani community (as I already said in a comment below).
I’ve heard Mayweather say more than once that Khan has a massive fanbase in the UK, and remember thinking he didn’t know what he was talking about, and must just be assuming that based on Hatton. But as you say, it’s unthinkable that Khan would have an army of followers going over to Vegas (a point I’ve also made before).
Whether Khan has a huge number of fans in the UK (again, especially amongst the Pakistani community) and in Pakistan (and possibly elsewhere in the Muslim world) who are willing to fork out for the for PPV remains to be seen. Like you, I tend to doubt it, but it’s not impossible: “the Muslim world” is, after all, made up of about 1.6 billion people.Posted February 3, 2014 2:53 pm
Floyd been on a steady diet of slow flat footed brawlers Khan would be a real shock for his system.Posted February 3, 2014 2:53 pm
Realist, Completely agree, Although you missed out the biggest difference between Floyd and Broner, which is footwork.Posted February 3, 2014 2:42 pm
Lol…Smart move by Mayweather to ask his that question therefore taking
Floyd Mayweather is playing the game, Everyone knows full well that Marcos Maidana is unlikely to get close to him. Despite what most people think There are many differences between Mayweather and Broner,which include size and speed. Amir Khan although thin on the chin poses a technical threat to mayweather because he has the speed to hit mayweather with the large volume of punches. Mayweather knows this,the vast majority of US fans will likely choose Chino but any boxing fan who wants to see Floyd tested by someone who is not a come forward brawler like Hatton,Canelo,or Ortiz but is similar in speed to a young Zab Judah then they will choose Khan,he introduces Floyd to the Asian market in addition to the UK ppv. Amir |Khan is a more equitable fight for Floyd.Posted February 3, 2014 2:36 pm
Killa, Maybe you didnt understand the question as you didnt seem to answer it but its a choice between Khan or Maidana and there are plenty who give Khan a ‘chance’, albeit a very slim one, including legends like Roach and Jones Junior. I would rather see Pacman but its not going to happen as long as he is with TR and between Khan and Maidana its a no brainer as Maidana brings absolutely nothing whatsoever to trouble Floyd.Posted February 3, 2014 2:34 pm
Pacquaio, GGG, Lara, Garcia or any credible skilled fighter. Neither Maidana nor Khan. Cherry picking as alwaysPosted February 3, 2014 2:32 pm
Floyd and Pac are forever joined in conversations back in 09 when Manny looked unstoppable the fight could have been huge. Now due to his losses and lack luster fights it certainly dont have anything near what it could have, Manny is the one who walked away, Now he is broke he wants the fight, But it never would have lived up to the hype, Its a mismatch Floyd would easily pick Manny apart his ounches are wide and he leaves himself open to counters Floyd would exploit him easliy reality is he is desperate and needs Floyd to save him or too cash out before he retires. Arum was never interested in Manny fighting Floyd because a lost and his stocks decline big time which means he dont make money. Same thing happened when Manny got beat by Marquez public interest has taken a beating he is irrelevant now Manny is fighting for his life to pay off the IRS, Bradley will beat him then what does he have and who will pay tp see him fight anyone much less Floyd?Posted February 3, 2014 2:32 pm

He should fight the guy next to him. Knock out the Bieber, champ!Posted February 3, 2014 2:22 pm
Kahn is the logical choice based on the UK fans and are likely to come out in bug ppvs numbers. Maidana would be good also it cant go wrong either way both guys will be beat easliy though Floyd is too sharp, And yes no way in hell Pac beats of even comes close to Floyd loosing to Bradley and Marquez but these Pactards are ignorant nutt huggers.Posted February 3, 2014 2:19 pm
Roach said he sees no reason why Arum wouldn’t let Pac negotiate this fight without him being in it. Arum also stated he would allow Pac to donate his whole purse to charity for the fight. So with Arum saying that I see no reason why Pac would not go ahead and try and negotiate a fight with Floyd. If not then well stop talking about Pac and Floyd. All this garbage about Floyd making excuses but then ignoring the fact that Pac has made excuses also. They both have come up with reasons on why the fight can’t be made.Posted February 3, 2014 2:19 pm

It has to be Maidana,i agree. Khan go fight Kell Brook…..and losePosted February 3, 2014 1:50 pm
Anyone who would rather see Maidana over Khan clearly has no clue about boxing as Maidana is just another sloq flat footed plodder like Guerrero,Hatton,Gatti, etc and he has just won every round against Canelo, who is bigger,quicker and more skilled than Maidana. Khan brings a completely different style and has some advantages over Floyd like Speed and Range, plus he also has very good footwork, Judah, who Khan has already beaten, gave Floyd some problems and he doesnt have the speed and range of Khan, Plus Khan has also beaten Maidana and we have seen Maidana also beaten by Alexander, He would be lucky to hit Floyd once and it would be an awful match up.Posted February 3, 2014 1:49 pm
Guys there’s no point complaining that Floyd isn’t fighting Pac Man. Right now the choice is between an actual champion Maidana who just spanked Broner … or chinny chump Khan who got spanked by Garcia and dropped by Diaz last time out. It has to be Maidana.Posted February 3, 2014 1:47 pm

Martin, nice feedback bro. But you’re wrong about Khan being a good business move. I’m in the UK. Khan has zero fan base, ok he has lots of little cyber followers but in terms of hardcore paying fans, he has very low support. People do not even travel in the UK to watch him fight. He is not Hatton, nobody is going to travel to Vegas to see him get sparked by Floyd. Showtime have been conned into thinking that Khan has a Hatton-type travelling army. He definitely does not. When Amir fought Carlos Molina in LA, Oscar and his guys had to give people free tickets and toys just to get people to show up. What does that tell you?? Khan v Floyd is a bad business decision. PPV numbers will be very low. Maidana is a champion and on a winning streak of four fights, including scalping Broner. Marcos v Floyd is a much better fight, and Marcos is way more deserving. Please everyone vote for Marcos. Khan just wants to cash out anyway, he’s semi-retired already if we’re honest.Posted February 3, 2014 12:44 pm

The only thing Maidana has that may be dangerous is his peekaboo left hook. Other than that he’s another Baldomir/Canelo/Guerrero..Lmao. At least Khans speed will make the first 6 or 7 rounds more competitive and seeing how Khan demolished Zab in 6 rounds but Floyd went the distance with him says a lot IMO..in don’t give me that Zab was washed up when he fought Khan messPosted February 3, 2014 12:40 pm
At MJames: see Cheezb’s comments (especially last two paragraphs) on why Khan is in the mix. It should come as no surprise to anyone that Floyd is concerned about money first and foremost: he’s hoping that Khan brings a lot of fans (= PPV numbers) to the table.
By the way, I was mainly agreeing with Cheezb’s last two paragraphs below. On the first point, I agree that Khan looks like a better fight stylistically (I can’t see Maidana having much more success than Hatton did, given his size and style), but then Khan has not yet fought at 147, and given that he had trouble withstanding punches at 135 and 140, I can’t see him staying on his feet long against Mayweather, who has been campaigning at 154 and hits a lot harder than people given him credit for.
With Khan’s weak defence and chin, and Mayweather’s accuracy, that fight is only going one way. I also think that Khan will be afraid to pull the trigger, both because facing Mayweather will affect him psychologically, and because Floyd with make him pay, picking him off with well-timed hard right-hand leads and counterpunches. So while we’ll get Khan throwing some fast flurries now and again, Floyd will easily be able to parry them, and Khan’s basically just going to get picked off until he gets KO’d.
As for Maidana, he won’t be able to land anything like as many punches as he did against Broner. Floyd will also take those punches better when they do land, and basically pick Maidana off all night with lead right-hands (like he did with e.g. Gatti and Hatton). I doubt Maidana gets KO’d, but he’ll get battered badly and lose by a massive points margin.
So, in sum, while I think Khan is more intriguing stylistically, he’ll get KO’d, while Maidana would last longer but have perhaps even less success landing meaningful punches. Neither fight is a great challenge for Mayweather, and we can only hope he grows the balls to fight Pacquiao at 147 or Golovkin at 154 before he retires (though I seriously doubt he will).Posted February 3, 2014 12:33 pm

Fight. PAC-Man …..and stop runing away from him…the whole world wants to see ur sorry black azz. Kicked ..Posted February 3, 2014 12:08 pm
I say Khan..Mayweather hasn’t fought a speed opponent for awhile now and Khan and would be a good test to see how he deals with speed at his age. Also it’ll be a good tune up for IF he fights Paquiao.Posted February 3, 2014 12:03 pm
Based on the Facebook comments on Mayweather’s profile, I’d say Khan actually sells better… not to mention it’d be a more interesting fight stylistically.
Support for a Maidana fight looks to be mostly coming from the boxing fans (i.e. fightnews has Maidana way up). But earlier when I was looking at Mayweather’s Facebook post, it looked like Khan commenters were by far the more popular. Some were Pakistani and Middle Eastern community supporters, others were UK people wanting to see Khan get hurt.
When a fight has interest outside of the normal boxing fans, it’s going to pay more. You have to remember that boxing fans aren’t the target in these scenarios coz they know a massive percentage of us will watch the fight no matter who he ends up in the ring with (same as we do for Pacquiao fights or any other top-tier fighter). The general public on the other hand are more fickle and they’re a bigger market to exploit than us fight fans.
It’s like super hero movies. All the comic book fans end up hating the movies coz they’re not close enough to the source material. But Hollywood doesn’t care about them coz they’re only a small demographic who will pay to watch the movie regardless of how it turns out. All they care about is pleasing the more general audience coz that’s where the massive box-office numbers come from… not the 0.01% share of the market that the fanboys make up.Posted February 3, 2014 12:03 pm
Mayweather did not put his face out during the Superbowl because he LOST 10 million dollars…LOL.LOL…Posted February 3, 2014 12:02 pm

pacman ,golovkinPosted February 3, 2014 11:56 am
Here is a more suitable list for mayweather
How do people vote anyway? On Twitter? If so, everyone should tweet back:
“Floyd asks who he should fight next? Pacquiao or Golovkin!”Posted February 3, 2014 11:52 am
Sounds like all the criticism floyd is taking for possibly choosing khan finally weighed in. I think floyd will choose maidana if broner agrees to step aside and not exercise that rematch clause. Floyd vs chino is way more respectable than floyd vs khan. Either fight will be an easy win for floyd. Chino cant bumrush floyd like he did ab! Floyd counter punching and defense is way too good!Posted February 3, 2014 11:48 am
Khan. Maidana is tailor-made for Mayweather. a replay of Floyd v. Baldomir. nobody should make the mistake of comparing Broner to Mayweather. there is NO comparison. at least Khan brings degrees of fighting qualities that Floyd has yet to personally face. nothing that Mayweather won’t ultimately defuse and proceed to dominate but we’ll get to watch him unlock something different.Posted February 3, 2014 11:40 am
maidana would sell way better for the fans especially 24/7 , that way floyd will hype the fight by avenging the loss of his best friend broner & how he will dismantle maidana by showing his boxing talent.Posted February 3, 2014 11:34 am
Swedish Boxing Fan
Pathetic from Floyd Mayweather Jr’s side. He KNOWES very well what the frans and all wants to see happen and that is neither of these two. He knowes we wan’t to see him fighting Manny “Pac-Man” Paquiao.Posted February 3, 2014 11:25 am
Fight Bieber…his in top ranked in the WBC ‘celebrities hangers on’ list.Ranked no. 2 and 3 are the Watson bros….Yeah lets get it on !!!!!Posted February 3, 2014 11:23 am
Floyd needs to fight Maidana. Honestly, even from a promotional standpoint it’s a better fight … Golden Boy can spin Maidana into the most dangerous fighter Floyd’s ever faved stylistically because of what he did to Broner and the shoulder roll defense. Nobody in the US to see you Mayweather fight Khan.Posted February 3, 2014 11:22 am
“he will go with the mexican always does”
And what Mexican would that be? He only mentioned Maidana and Khan, didn’t he?Posted February 3, 2014 11:20 am
Give us Maidana, and Floyd, we want to see a KO.Posted February 3, 2014 11:12 am
Hidalgo – ” LMAO! Some linear champion this guy is. Fight Bradley. He’s waiting for you.” IDIOTIC!!!!!!!!Posted February 3, 2014 11:02 am
Floyds legacy is set. Everything he has been doing is just icing on the cake. Maidana deserves this fight, he also has a belt. Con should of never even been in the running. Maidana is just to slow for Floyd but he deserves the fight. If this fight happens it will be something close to Floyd vs Gatti.Posted February 3, 2014 11:00 am
PS: Maidana could beat the biatch Floyd. He has something that Floyd doesn’t have, guts!Posted February 3, 2014 10:52 am
fight pacPosted February 3, 2014 10:51 am
MaidanaPosted February 3, 2014 10:50 am
Despite his unbeaten records and all the millions he is making, Floyd is a loser in my book. He will have a poor legacy the way he chooses his fights because he is fighting for money and not for legacy. For god’s sakes, I have more respect for Jake LaMotta than for this guy!
he will go with the mexican always doesPosted February 3, 2014 10:47 am
JUSTIN BIEBER HE JUST BAIL OUT ……PACMAN OR NOTHINGPosted February 3, 2014 10:38 am
actually put bradley top 5 in my list tooPosted February 3, 2014 10:36 am
pacman ,make us look good broPosted February 3, 2014 10:36 am
maidana and kahn dont make the list floyd.
Bradley or LaraPosted February 3, 2014 10:30 am
Khan’s Cuz Achmed
As if I didn’t already dislike Mayweather enough. Part of his entourage for ring entrances now includes Bieber. Instead of being friends I was hoping for them to get in a celebrity death match. Floyd could have brass knuckles and a gatt. Bieber could be armed with a nail file and his hair stylist. Khan will be doing a number on Floyd soon enough anyway. #KingKhan2014 #Floydlost$10.4milliononSuperBowl #BigBoiDollazPosted February 3, 2014 10:27 am
would it be okay w/ pac fans if he mentioned little mikey garcia for the future? lolPosted February 3, 2014 10:26 am
Fight Bieber for all i care. He would spank KhanPosted February 3, 2014 10:23 am
“Khan or Maidana?”
LMAO! Some linear champion this guy is. Fight Bradley. He’s waiting for you.Posted February 3, 2014 10:19 am
Khans been out to long,moving up in weight,looking unimpressive lately,has speed but also glass jaw. Has to prove himself at welter first. Maidana also probably loses but is on winning streak, proven at weight,great fight last out beating Floyds mate,more durable and punches harder.Just wish he were a lot faster but should get the payday also see how much better the real Floyd can doPosted February 3, 2014 10:19 am
I love you Justin Bieber !Posted February 3, 2014 10:15 am
Khan only beat Maidana because the referee protected Khan from being knocked out in the last three rounds. Everyone knows that. Maida for Floyd yes please. Khan is a joke.Posted February 3, 2014 10:15 am
pacman vs floyd won’t happen… as of the moment. lets just wait & see if pacman renew his contract with top rank or not. floyd won’t do business with top rank ceo bob arum. pacman is bob arum’s fighter.Posted February 3, 2014 10:14 am
Just think, if Justin Bieber gets deported back to Canada we won’t see anymore of these stupid photos.Posted February 3, 2014 10:13 am
Regardless, neither one of these guys is the one Mayweather should be fighting. He SHOULD be fighting Bradley.Posted February 3, 2014 10:12 am
Ok, wait, it might not have been on thesweetscience.com but I remember reading it online after the superbowl was over.Posted February 3, 2014 10:11 am
Yet another ploy by mayweather, maidina will fight broner so this is just a ploy to make the khan fight a bit more sellable. Floyd beats both guys with relative ease out boxing maidina staying on the outside for 12 rounds and knocking out khan when he makes mistakes. Don’t be fooled by mayweathers pool it’s already a done deal with khan. However in an ideal world the choice should be between PAC man and GGGPosted February 3, 2014 10:09 am
Interesting…thesweetscience.com website had an article yesterday which said the Mayweather/Khan fight was set for May 3.Posted February 3, 2014 10:09 am
PACPosted February 3, 2014 10:08 am
What about erislandy Lara against Floyd? But if not maidana will do not caus I think he can beat Floyd but because he deserves that fight more than khan doesPosted February 3, 2014 10:07 am
Simply put, Maidana deserves it much more.He is champ and beat up lil Boner.If Maidana fought Khan now he would knock Khan out early. But should be Manny or GGG at 154. Floyd and Lara,how boring would that bePosted February 3, 2014 10:07 am
Styles make fights they say, and I think Khan has a much better chance than Maidana. Remember, Khan eats slick boxers like Malignaggi, Judah, and will give Mayweather a kicking.Posted February 3, 2014 10:03 am
Manny Pac pleasePosted February 3, 2014 10:01 am
Fight Pac.Posted February 3, 2014 9:53 am
Yeah GGG would be a good fight. I actually think Kahn Mayweather is a good fight.Posted February 3, 2014 9:47 am
Floyd should ask for GGG to come down at 154lbs. Mayweather wins easily, remember how quick Canelo was before he entered the ring with Floyd?Posted February 3, 2014 9:46 am
Lets face it there is still not meaninful fight out there for Floyd
MJames – Er….Kahn beat Maidana, thats not nothing.Posted February 3, 2014 9:45 am
Maidana. It’s disgusting that Khan is even in the conversation, the guy has done NOTHING to earn a shot at Floyd. Let’s all vote for Maidana. No point moaning that it’s not Lara or Thurman. The choice is Khan or Maidana. It has to be Maidana.Posted February 3, 2014 9:44 am
mayweather v lara
anyone remember the good old days? sugar ray leonard v marvin hagler?
mayweather v golovkinPosted February 3, 2014 9:43 am
How do people cast their vote anyway? And how to prevent people voting numerous times?
Of course, he’s delusional in saying he’ll let “his fans” decide. He seems to think he gets those high PPV numbers because he’s popular, rather than hated.
Anyway, he obviously won’t be able to restrict the voting to “his fans”, so you might think that most people will vote that he fights Maidana (i.e. because the’re hoping he can do to Floyd what he did to Broner).
Maidana will also presumably have a lot of Argentinians voting, and that’s a population of 40 million, whereas Khan is not that popular in the UK (except maybe among the Pakistani population, which is like one huge inbred family: most of them come from Mirpur and marry their first cousins).
However, Khan I imagine Khan is very big in Pakistan, and it’s got a population of 180 million, so if a fair portion of them start voting…Posted February 3, 2014 9:43 am
marcelo you say
why piss on khan and not mayweather? floyd is light middle champion and chooses to fight a 140 lb guy. for what it’s worth, i think it would serve floyd right if khan’s speed and style prove to be a nightmare for him.Posted February 3, 2014 9:40 am
only between maidana or khan. no lara or thurman. ok i go for maidana but lara is my first choice.Posted February 3, 2014 9:28 am
A fight with maidiana would be another borefest, floyd wins every round. Khan has great handspeed and would make it interesting for at least a while. A khan fight would be a huge seller in the UK and Ireland and lets not forget khan beat maidana. Stylistically Khan is a better option, I feel his speeds gives him a bigger propensity to cause problems. Mayweather still wins both easily I don’t think thats in doubt, Watch the alexander fight and should answer all the questions you want to know how maidana would fair against mayweather.Posted February 3, 2014 9:19 am
Maidana.Posted February 3, 2014 9:08 am
Yeah, Floyd v Manny should be scheduled for later this year. Floyd, make that fight! Btw, Maidana probably has even less chance of beating Floyd than Khan has.Posted February 3, 2014 9:04 am
lara,maidana or pac. nothing more nothing lessPosted February 3, 2014 8:58 am
Article should be titled on what planet does Khan deserve to even be in the conversation… not fought at 147 before, won two meaningless fights at the weight below and isn’t even a champion in his own weight…
maidana just had a huge win and danny Garcia should have been the other in line after the mathysse fight….
its a no brainer either of them deserved it but this is everything that is wrong with the sport… if khan gets it then what a state the boxing world is in… talked your way into the best fight of your life instead of doing it the old fashioned way and getting there with your fists and taking it….
sugar ray robinson and all the other greats will be turning in their graves that the sport has turned into a coward pick and mix match type sport to get any version of any belt and call yourself a ‘champ’
marcelo – Manchester – ukPosted February 3, 2014 8:54 am
Khan has no belt and never fought at welterweight before. He got dropped by Diaz last time out and we all know Danny Garcia spanked his ass big time. It’s got to be Marcos.Posted February 3, 2014 8:51 am
MAIDANAA….i cast my votePosted February 3, 2014 8:48 am
Khan has the speed to keep things interesting for a few rounds!
Khan is a funky chicken, doing the dance like Bambi on ice. We MUST all vote for Maidana guys, come on let’s do it. Khan will cry like a baby when he finds out what Floyd is doing. We all know what a cry baby chinny boy Khan is lolPosted February 3, 2014 8:41 am
i believe Khan has a little to no chance whilst Maidana (who I really like) has zero hope. So fight Khan in London or Manchester!!Posted February 3, 2014 8:31 am
Khan does a wonderful funky chicken dance but I want Maidana to get the shot, he’s more deserving and is a champion with a belt. Khan has nothing, except two defeats in his last four plus getting dropped by Diaz last time out. We all need to VOTE for Maidana. Come on guys, let’s do it.Posted February 3, 2014 8:30 am
DEFINITELY MAIDANA! he won his last 4 fights. with the right preparation, maidana can upset floyd.Posted February 3, 2014 8:24 am
Should be Bradley but since its between Khan and Maidana I’d opt to take on a CHAMP rather than a NON CHAMP. SO Maidana over Khan. Khan should have MANNED UP and took Alexander’s title IF he could take it. Go get you a quality WIN before taking on the BEST…..Actually the more competitive Fight is Maidana vs Khan. Neither guy can trouble Mayweather MUCHPosted February 3, 2014 8:14 am
I find this hard to believe this is nonsense.
Miadana deserves it more and will probably win the popularity-vote ….. but stylewise Khan is a better opponent and it will be more competitive.Posted February 3, 2014 8:00 am
Seriously?! He needs to put up a survey on this thing? Only foolswould want a Khan match-up. So, you want the fan’s take on your next fight? Why not put up a poll in about the Pac fight? Oh I know, you wouldn’t want to know what people think about that.Posted February 3, 2014 7:55 am
Who will Khan fight if he doesn’t get his Floyd retirement pay day? Nobody. Khan will not fight anyone. Haven’t you guys realised, Khan is retired, he is only hanging around for a Floyd pay day.Posted February 3, 2014 7:41 am
Definitely Maidana. Khan doesn’t belong anywhere near Mayweather.Posted February 3, 2014 7:40 am
