Maidana-Khan is a garbage fight. What’s next Floydiots, Salido-Mayweather? Garbage after garbage. All to make your idol shine? Shame

Typical racist post below from floyedidiots fans … Lol floyed it’s not even fighting whites …. Whites have klitchkos too to brag about if they want but it’s not about race you idiot!!!

Poor pacturds

Miadana is better then Kahn for sure and if Kahn fights Broner on the undercard it would be huge two main events in the same night. Floyd is changing the game. This will undoubtedly be the biggest fight of the year. Poop Manny always the bridesmaid never the bride. And yes they cannot stand a black man with this much power because its not normal. lol But times are changing and it ok for whites to have power but not us. But hate all you want Floyd will continue to thumb his nose at the powers that be call his own shots and invite anyone who don’t like it to kiss his ass. He will fight Maidana, Kahn and Danny Garcia and retire 50-0 and Manny and Arum will be stuck with nothing calling his scared and putting together the same BS fights that no one will pay to watch like Marquez 5 what a joke….

Floyd basically replied to Khan’s tweet of a few days ago but said “if Khan ends up fighting Broner” on his undercard. It wasn’t an offer per se. Khan already called the offer BS in a reply back. All this stuff is annoying. Make the fight or STFU.

It’s hard to watch a boring fight all the time with Floyd. No matter who he picks exclusively in GBP line up it will always be a snoozer fest. I stop watching him a ling time ago. He just don’t deliver excitement. He knows who to pick and beat. Just doesn’t worth my money watching something you know who is going to win in a long boring fight!

Amir Khan shouldn’t have nothing to do with Floyd Mayweather. Floyd is trying to butter him up to fight on his card, get his fans and raise his PPV numbers because he knows full well that no one is going to buy the fight. Mayweather is trying to con Khan and make him look dumber than he looked after Mayweather baited him along and said no, I’m fighting Maidana. Mayweather is a joke. These gimmick fights he has are laughable. He tried doing the same thing with Canelo, but Canelo said forget you. Khan should do the same.

I’ll be tuning in May 3rd. And I’ll be tuning in this upcoming weekend as well. I hope Angulo wins, but I expect Alvarez to land more for the win by way of mid round TKO… As far as what Khan wants, who cares? he’s in no position to get much of anything he wants right now. He needs to put together a string of impressive wins, like Maidana did.

because this is conversation about the fight-game from the fan’s perspective who is the paying costumer that supports the fighter’s career.

You saw the backlash Floyd got from originally having Khan as the front-runner? Well, that’s from the paying fans who said they will not watch the fight. So what did Floyd do? He made a poll. Of course Khan won his but Floyd looked at the overall polls done (including ESPN) and saw that their was more “intere$t” in the Maidana fight.

It’s called fan feedback.

Bradley is the most deserving. Shame he is with Top Rank which he himself admits will be hard to get a fight with Floyd who himself said Bradley is a good choice but he won’t be working with Top Rank.

I love watching boxing but for $70, I’m not doing it because it feeds into the fighter doing what he wants. If they can get paid for taking the easier option, they will. But we saw what happened when Floyd vs. R.G. didn’t hit hit the numbers and we saw what happened when Pac vs. Rios didn’t hit the numbers; they had to step up their game.

Will I decide to see it at a sports bar for like $8 cover charge, I don’t know. I won’t go out of my way for it.

Maidana in my opinion is the 2nd most deserving fighter after Bradley. Do I want to see the fight, yes only because Floyd is a great and I like to watch him work. As for the opponent, I think it will look like Floyd vs Gatti all over. Will have to wait and see. Do I want to pay $70 for it, nope, I will probably go watch it at a friends house. But if I can’t find a place then yes I will pay for it. I love to watch boxing. I will purchase most PPVs if they are put on by HBO or Showtime. I would rather not pay for it no. As for it being Maidana, like I said he is the 2nd most deserving fighting behind Bradley. Unfortunately Bradley resigned with Top Rank so he will be stuck under Arum for a bit longer. He may never get the Floyd fight. Hopefully next year if Thurman is ready we will get him against Floyd.

So you are for the Maidana fight?
For $70?

I wasn’t for either Maidana or Khan. Both a waste of fights for the regarded best P4P fighter in boxing and who only fights once or twice a year.

Every fight of his should be a Mega-Fight where he could possibly lose, like the Alvarez fight “perception.”

As far as some fans, whoever Mayweather choses will be a cherry-pick and whoever he doesn’t chose will be a duck before and or after the fight.

If he had chose Khan, Maidana would be on that list of “ducks” and Khan, a cherry pick. Now the flip of that is occurring with some fans.

People want him to really step up his challenge and face the likes of GGG, but since he isn’t going to do that, Floyd, a WW, is ducking the MW Champion. How that makes sense to some, I don’t know.

But let’s say he entertained the thought of fighting GGG, signed a contract for him, this is how it would work:

“Floyd is going to get destroyed by GGG” will be what they say to hype of the fight and wish happens to Floyd.

But afterwards, after Floyd wins the fight (and play along) they will say “Floyd cherry-picked GGG who has had NO BIG WINS”

And so on. There are so many variations you can do.

For me, I just want him and the rest of the fighters in such a position to fight the best out there.

I won’t be buying this fight.

Floyd also went over this in an interview years back when facing Oscar: People want to see the Good Guy/Bad Guy concept and if Oscar is the Good guy, Floyd will be the bad guy.

He tried out the Pretty Boy FLoyd character and it didn’t work out. Interesting note on that was that the original Pretty Boy FLoyd was a gangster.
This Pretty Boy Floyd (Mayweather) was the fighter with the clean face and smile after a fight (who Tarver gave him the name too). But there were to many nice guys in the sport like Oscar, like Shane Mosley.

I never laughed at Maidana facing Floyd. Everybody said Floyd wouldn’t have the balls to fight Maidana and that is what I made comments about. Now that he is people like you are saying he is taking the easy road out. Also I stated multiple times I didn’t want to see Floyd fight Khan. And no if Khan was to get the fight against Floyd, Floyd would of looked good in KOing Khan before 8 and yet would have to hear folks complain about him fighting Khan. You can say Khan beat Maidana all you want. If they were to have a rematch I bet Maidana would KO Khan. Have you not seen Khans last 4 fights? You just like to add crap to your theories to try and make them true. Doesn’t work. Your logic is flawed plain and simple.

Come on you loser peej , u are the one who loughed at the idea of Maidana fighting mayweather right after Maidana beat broner but as soon as he was picked with khan as two main candidate for mayweather fight you suddenly thought Maidana was the guy to fight mayweather …lmao. !
The real reason you didn’t want to see mayweather fight khan because you knew win or lose mayweather would look bad against a guy who suppose to be washed up glass jaw … So khan vs mayweather was a lose lose fight off mayweather ….
You can twist all you want but the fact is khan beat Maidana and has a much better style against mayweather then 140 pounder Maidana .
Why don’t you ask for broner to fight Thurman ?? Ehh?? You know why …

Adrian you are an idiot. Who cares about Khan. This will give Thurman more experience and help him get the fight next year. I don’t want to see Khan fight Floyd because that is an easy fight for Floyd. I have been saying that since they started talking about a Khan fight. Nobody wanted to see Khan fight Floyd. But now all of a sudden Floyd picked a more deserving fighter and all of a sudden he is avoiding Khan. So stop with your lame theories.

Broner Making Khan Beg

Khan is begging again. This time he’s begging Broner for a shot, looking past him at Floyd, like Khan always does. Broner should make Khan beg a lot more. Khan has no problem begging. Broner will KO washed up Khan inside seven rounds. I like this fight.

Great. I like how Golden Boy are trying to feed Khan to Broner. They know Khan is finished. Feeding Khan to Broner is perfect for Broner and the fans. Nobody likes arrogant Khan, nobody likes Broner either but we’d all love to see him spank clown Khan into retirement. This will happen, Broner will resume his winning streak by stopping glass jaw Khan inside seven rounds. If featherweights can knock Khan over, even Broner at 147lbs can do it.

Posted March 3, 2014 8:59 am 


Love-the-Sport

Broner vs. Khan is not a good fight for either Broner or Khan or the fans.

– It is too risky for Broner … Khan is taller, faster, and he throws more punches — Broner will look bad

– It is too risky for Khan … Maidana admitted that Broner does have some pop in his punches and we all know that Khan has a weak chin — it could be over for Khan

– Fans would see this as too flawed fighters who don’t have a clue trying to survive … possibly a low action conservative fight with Khan connecting from the outside and running away to save his chin and Broner not throwing many punches because he doesn’t throw many punches.

Bad fight.

Broner should start over. He should go down to 140 and pick an easier opponent — Hank Lundy? Mike Alvarado? — and try to get a knockout and look spectacular.

Khan should do the same — again Hank Lundy and Mike Alvarado are good candidates. Try to look good. Try to not to get wobbled.

Now is this a part of the Game, the tactics of the General and Advisers, to carefully be matched up against certain opponents, to use time and other leverages to your advantages (as Freddie Roach admits he likes to do) ?
Maybe.
That is one form of intelligent victory.
Although some would argue it is not the most honorable victory.

But the winner in the end is how the fighter feels about himself and the second is how the fans view him according to some.
Some fighters push the limits because they want to know personally they met all the challenges head on and at their opponent’s peak, Others, are happy by playing the waiting game and outfoxing their opponents (and the public).

Yup, Floyd calls the shots and avoid the potential obstacle in his road to richest. Floyd’s cherry pick his opponents and build drama to hype up his fight. His talent don’t come from his skills in boxing it’s more on the knowledge and knowing who is shot old and easy to beat. Floyd comes from a family of fighters who got long damage in the brain and body. Floyd learn a lot from the mistakes of his family and use this knowlenge to not repeat it self and he is successful in raking up money but unseccessful to prove to the world that he is the best. Pacman is right thier beside him waiting patiently to fight him. Floyd skills comes from cherry picking and not from fighting the best right here right now. Yes successful in boxing and so does Pacman. I say if Floyd is the best and so rich and successful what is he afraid of fighting Top Ranks superstar manny Pacman.

What’s important is if you are loved by people. How much money is enough to know you are rich?
Posted March 3, 2014 1:32 am

___________

Ah, Yes, Agree, that is correct: FLoyd is not bigger than GBP or Showtime.

But NO, he is not “another lucky rich guy” since he taken his talent and worked years to perfect something few can do and be Great at it. And along the way, he has learned how to become more self-reliant in a business that prefers their entertainers to be directed as told.

Floyd broke free of what he felt was holding him back, Bob Arum/Top Rank, and move towards a position of more independent power. And the reward was him becoming the richest athlete in the sport and one of the richest in all sports.
Instead of being told what he can and can’t do by the likes of Bob Arum who took chunks of his pay, Floyd was able to call more of the shots and lead the way.

Does that mean he or any of them are completely free? NO. But neither is Showtime, GBP, or any of them because ultimately, they are all ruled by the paying public who if gathered together could hault their power.

As far as being loved, Floyd seems just fine with his Children’s love (and his love for himself) than anything else.

It’s not so much about how much money as it is how much money can you get of the pie based on what you are able to generate instead of the likes of guys in suits taken more pieces of the pie than they should be entitled to.

There used to be a time when Managers were so corrupt they would gurantee themselves 50% and on top of that, found ways to beat their fighters into submission with threatening to destroy their careers.

Dana White/UFC has been accused of that on some level. How true? Not sure.

But Dana White/UFC, Top Rank, Showtime, GBP, etc. all of the big wigs are nothing without the entertainers and the entertainers are nothing without those they are paid to entertain__the paying public.

Overall, the best fight out there for Khan is a Garcia rematch. That’s what I would have pushed for since if he wins, its a redemption victory and Garcia has made himself a big enough name that it would help get him a fight with Floyd.

Zenidine: Floyd is a boxer not a promoter! He don’t hire GBP to arrange the undercards. He don’t pay Gbp to run his fights. It’s more like GBP run and produce the fights and pay Mayweather what he ask and everything left is a profit for GBP. Same thing with Showtime. Floyd don’t pay Showtime to televise his fight on PPV and Floyd pay them in a certain amount and Floyd’s get the rest of the profit! If the fight go bust GBP and Showtime will take the lose not Mayweather who has a guaranteed purse.

______

Floyd doesn’t have a contract like other fighters do with Promoters like GBP. He does however have a contract with Showtime but that was his doing and not some promoter working out a deal. Again, he has his fingerprints on everything. He says who he wants to work with and who is doing what. Of course, he has advisers to grind out this side of the business.

FLoyd’s share is much bigger than other fighters because of the way things are set up. It’s why he has such a stronghold on the PPV shares.

On the flip side, Pac doesn’t have this and it’s wrong in my opinion that he doesn’t make such a move because he should be getting his fare share but instead, Arum is allowed to deal with everything.

Of course, I think the investor should be making a fair return since most investments don’t work out so the risk vs. reward should be honored. After all, what position and options do the fighters have?
but on that note, I also don’t like to see fighters being taken advantage of.

It’s just good to see Fighters with Money and Ability to be on that side extending a hand to other upcoming fighters instead of just some greedy suit who is ready to take the fighter for all that he has just because he gave him a coin.

That being said, Mayweather is a bit hard up for opponents at the moment. I’m guessing he’s finished at 154. The top dogs at welter are all Top Rank. At junior welter there’s only Garcia and he says he’s not ready yet. That only really leaves guys like Khan and Maidana (Malignaggi???).
Thurman is a good possibility, though he may not be ready for this level of fight yet.”

____________

He wants Khan but he found out he wasn’t sellable at the moment. He needs a big win and some positive buzz around him.

Thurman is ready and so is Porter. At least for Khan. Garcia was in that same position.
Maybe not so much for Floyd but you have to take a step up at some point. After all, we’ve seen it in the past where sometimes when a fighter is put in a big fight where he seems to be not ready yet, he rises to the occasion like all Great fighters do. If he does, I don’t know. Alvarez couldn’t.

GBP supply the undercard a lot of the times which is also why Floyd is trying to build up his own stable of fighters.

GBP, which is run by Richard, understands the entire business in working out deals and setting things up. That’s Richard’s skill, not Floyd’s.

Floyd just won’t hand over full Promotional rights like all the other fighters do because he is able to generate the buzz on his own and after all, most of what Promoters do is creating that buzz for the fight.
It’s not the entire thing because you still have to get a venue, set other things up and so on but, none of that is possible with something to sell and Floyd sells himself.

250 million minus 30% taxes minus 40% GBP cut. What does Floyd have left? 75 million. Wow that’s a lot for 6 fight exclusive on second best Showtime. After Showtime is done with Floyd they will be more far behind to HBO in quality fights and shows.
{end quote}

GBP doesn’t get 40%. Not even upwards of 30% like Uncle Bob is said to get.
That’s why Floyd has positioned himself the way he has in running his show. One of the guys from Forbes magazine talked about it as to how Floyd is able to pocket so much money unlike any other fighter. It’s why he talks about being his own boss and writing the checks to who he hires, like GBP.

There are chunks of the pie that go out which does include UNCLE SAM, Showtime/PPV, GBP, and Al Haymon. However, since Floyd put himself in control which is why you here him promote “TMT,” he gets that big share. He actually gets to look at the books if he wants to.
That’s also why GBP wait for him, wait on him, and work for him unlike the other fighters in the game who do what their promoter tells them to do.
Now that wasn’t the case years ago when Floyd was with Bob Arum.

It’s also why many don’t understand why someone like Pac doesn’t do the same thing since he can be pulling in bigger amounts of money than he is currently getting.

Khan’s losing it if he really thinks that beating Broner is the ticket to facing Mayweather. Khan needs to put together a string of wins. Broner would be a start, but he needs more than that.

@Zinadine – “Khan also looked subpar in his last fight so it’s not like we are talking about just one fight.”

Oh, make no mistake. I’m not saying Khan would have won the fight by any means. I’m not even saying that he would have survived for much longer, I’m just pointing out that he wasn’t laid out quite as badly as it’s made out… the Prescott loss was far more devastating.

And yeah, he did look bad after that too, and I don’t really think he deserves a shot at Mayweather either.

That being said, Mayweather is a bit hard up for opponents at the moment. I’m guessing he’s finished at 154. The top dogs at welter are all Top Rank. At junior welter there’s only Garcia and he says he’s not ready yet. That only really leaves guys like Khan and Maidana (Malignaggi???).

Broner won’t take the Fight because there is no upside for him. He isn’t gunning for a Floyd Fight SO where is the benefit for HIM for facing Khan? Floyd will rake in the PPV upside created by the bout. Broner would Fight Khan IF it was a separate PPV where he gets some of the PPV revenue but thats not the case. Khan has no title SO its a step backwards for Broner…..better off finding himself a CHAMP to face at 140 like Floyd already advised him to…. Khan needs to be calling out a CHAMP at 147 IF he wants a Floyd Fight. Floyd likes to face CHAMPS. Didn’t you learn your lesson yet??? Thurman or Porter. Either will defeat you but you still have to TRY.

What it does tell me is that Khan has heart but that’s not in question. What is in question is if he was even deserving of being mentioned by Floyd as a possible opponent, especially a leading opponent, which Floyd found out was not so when there was immediate backlash. Maidana’s win over Broner just knocked that fight out of contention.

Overall, I would rather Floyd fight someone else but he is going to look at who is riding the popularity train right that can help boost those sales.

Khan was finished. Even if he somehow made it out of the round against Garcia, along with Khan’s odds of trying to regain his footing not in his favor, Garcia had Khan’s timing down, and was willing to take one to give one and we’ve seen Garcia have that ability against bigger punchers than Khan.

Khan also looked subpar in his last fight so it’s not like we are talking about just one fight.

Posted March 2, 2014 8:48 pm

Even though Khan may have slid in recent history, people seem to forget that Khan finished the Garcia fight on his feet and the argument can be made that the stoppage was somewhat premature. Case in point, Khan looked a lot more wobbly when rising from the first knockdown than he did at the time of the stoppage.
Additionally, Garcia looked to be punching himself out somewhat in his pursuit of the stoppage.

Garcia did deserve the win, of course. But it wasn’t like Khan was carried out on a stretcher or something.

Overall, I agree that if Khan can get his act together, he has the talent physically to bother Floyd at this stage of Floyd’s career. Speed, Agility, Punch-out-put, and Intensity (along with great stamina), even if technically flawed, has in the past been able to defeat aging greats.

But Khan just hasn’t looked good in recent years. And even with all that, I don’t see him winning just because he has speed, agility and punch-out-put (when he was with Ariza) since he still has to many technical flaws that Floyd will expose.

Khan needs to get back on track and put up a big win against Porter, Thurman or Garcia to get himself in position of worth to face Mayweather in the fall.

Posted March 2, 2014 8:30 pm

That was before Khan was knocked out by Garcia and looked subpar in his last fight.

What you were at one point in time isn’t necessarily what you are/will be at another.

Khan back then was more worthy especially if he had beaten Garcia but he didn’t. And now given his last performance, I”m not even sure he is even the same physically since he left Ariza who has his fighters in top physical shape so even if they are not technically sound, at least they can give you hell to the very end.

Do you or anyone know how much Floyd gives to his fighters to train and takes out for being under his promotion?

I wonder if you are a young fighter if it is worth it. Training camps are expensive to run so you tend to need someone with money helping you out but how much is Floyd taking compared to everyone else as well as any other promoter above you since Floyd is working with GBP and isn’t his own entity without.

Serious question for all. Please don’t respond with nonsense.

As much as i dont like broners mouth i have to go with him if he fights kahn.Although broner lost his last fight i think it had alot to do with his activity outside the ring and lack of focus and by that i mean his road shows with rappers. Also i believe his body hasnt settled at the weight, he should alot of heart and he does have skills.Kahn has a glass jaw, i truly believe broner will win.Once the bell rings and the air hits him hes going down.

Al Haymon and Golden Boy are not going to cash out Broner so soon. Khan will have to settle for Shawn Porter, Collazo, or Lamont Peterson.

Khan still haven’t learned that making demands gets him nowhere. He needs to get in the ring and earn those shots. But we’ll see what Floyd does. However, given how Broner seems to have problems with very active fighters, Khan could get it on point, if he doesn’t get caught, which Broner is capable of.

Had to unfollow Broner at Twitter because he’d spam my TL with incessant tard posts about nothing. But it is odd a guy who’s so active at Twitter had nothing to say when Khan called him out. Wonder if he’s going to look for sure thing wins against a punching bags again. Maidana was his first non-cherry picked opponent and we saw what happened.

Khan knows he has unsettled business in the past to take care of. I think he truly believes if he fought the guys he lost again, he will beat them. To him, no matter what their beneath him. He feels that he is this huge superstar that past issues be waived and remains under the spotlight. It causes him to not have the Patience to go back and start from previous defeats. Just like he fights, (impatient) that’s why he’s always getting caught clean.

Agree, Khan is a World Class fighter with but he doesn’t deserve a fight with Floyd at this point because of what he hasn’t done lately. He hasn’t had a big win since beating Maidana 3 years ago and Maidana is better now than before.

And fighting Broner shouldn’t get him a shot either because Broner was exposed to be to small and not skilled enough for the WW division at this point. Maidana got that shot because he exposed the hype and took the title.

A fight with Thurman or Porter would be Big Wins.

Posted March 2, 2014 6:43 pm

Khan vs Broner is a fight that actually makes sense given they both need wins against a name opponent and both are beatable with significant holes for the other to exploit. That Khan-Floyd match was utter nonsense from day 1, everyone knows that.

Maidana does have significantly more power than Khan however Maidana is an easier fight for Mayweather. If Broner were to fight Khan, I see Khan outboxing Broner. What Khan and all others need to comprehend is that no one can force Mayweather to do anything or even think about a compromise. That’s how it is. Mayweather is the money man like him or not. He’ll do what he wants to do regardless of public opinion. He may say the public matters but actually it’s all about the $$$ and who can blame him?

Have to agree with these fellas, Khan v Broner is certainly a fight I’d like to see, in fact taking into account Mayweather will probably win every single round against Maidana and win a UD the Khan v Broner fight sounds far more exciting. Khan may have his obvious weaknesses but I’ve never seen him in a boring fight, he either KO’s or gets KO’d. Khan v Broner sounds great to me.
