This is for birdhead. Where’s your proof. C’mon not your theory or opinions but EVIDENCE that this kid Pacquiao is on Peds. Really show me some Hard EVIDENCE pal. Typical posts by some uneducated keyboard punk who has guts from a distance. You’re stupid enuff to go by Freddie Roach who has a beef with Ariza? That’s your basis? When all else fails let’s attack the guys financial woes,his promoter,wife, etc.. Nothing to do with boxing. Just like Floyd you have a hardon for the little guy Pac safely from a distance. Real manly. Then again your alias Bird brain or what ever says it all.

Unreal, I just received my Eurasian Black vulture from the main player on ESB. I was initially impressed with the delivery truck being an armored vehicle with a police escort. The carving is first class, lifelike and the attention to detail was impeccable. It has a place of honor in my home, and is truly the centerpiece.

Thank you for your generosity, you are a life changer and a gentleman’s gentleman…

He we go again, Floyd vs a snail, no mystery here.

It’s like a fighter jet against the wright brother’s original aircraft, who wins the race, duh.

Maidona has one chance, come forward and punch Floyd in the face, that’s his only game plan.

Birdbrain and B Red must be the same idiot… Pacquiao has no problem with needles and took random blood tests throughout the Rios camp.

Floyd ran out of excuses not to fight Pacquiao so he’s inventing new ones like Bob Arum.

Arum was never an issue before… It’s a new dodge.

By Chris Williams: Trainer Freddie Roach dumped all over Manny Pacquiao’s former strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza in an interview with Radio Raheem this week. Roach said that Ariza would give Pacquiao drinks before workouts and he wasn’t sure what was inside the drinks. Roach said he didn’t trust Ariza at all, and he asked him about what was inside the drinks but Ariza wouldn’t tell him.
“One of the reasons I don’t work with him [Ariza] anymore is he’s a little shady,” Roach said to Radio Raheem. “He used to give Manny a drink before workouts, and I asked him what was in the drink and he would never tell me. I told him I need to know what was in the drinks because you’re giving it to my fighter.
And if something goes wrong, I’m going to get the blame. So in my opinion, he’s a little shady. So he’s in that champ [Brandon Rios] now and it doesn’t surprise me that [Rios testing positive for a banned substance] happened

Here’s the big difference between Mayweather fans and Pacquiao fans. Mayweather fans are BOXING fans who happen to think Floyd Mayweather is the best P4P fighter in the world, and maybe one of the all time greats. We like other fighters and might follow Andre Ward, GGG, Adonis Stevenson, and others. Pactards only started following the sport when Manny was on his bogus, steroid induced streak over previous Mayweather victims. Mayweather fans would not vote for Floyd if he ran for office. Mayweather fans would not postone their child’s surgical procedure if Floyd was fighting that night. (yes, a whore Pinay did that). Crime rates do not do down just because Floyd fights. Pactards really should be ashamed of themselves. Manny will continue to fight until all his brain cells are gone because you idiots don’t have a life of your own.

Posted March 7, 2014 8:17 pm

Question for Pactards…When exactly was Manny in his “prime?” LOL. In 2010 when he ducked out of the fight with Floyd because he was afraid of needles??

Posted March 7, 2014 8:16 pm

LMFAO Pactards say Floyd runs. Floyd can stand flat footed, slug, dance, he can do it all. Pacquiao has never been a fundamentlaly sound fighter. He is plain flip garbage.

PINOY’S NEVER ADMIT BEING WRONG!

One stereotype that has been affixed to the islanders is that they can
never, ever, admit when they are wrong. When I stated a fact in saying
had Manny Pacquiao agreed to taking the random Drug Testing that Floyd
Mayweather wanted, and that the fight would have taken place March 13,
2010, all but one of nearly 100 responses denied such and tried to spin
the blame on the fight not taking place 13 months ago on Mayweather.
Yes, Manny did agree to the testing, but this was many months
afterwards, and yet he still wanted a 10 or 14 day window in which he
didn’t want any testing done.

Brother Gonzo. With that uniquely creative imagination and those wordsmithing skills you could write dark, macabre, action-adventure/horror-thrillers for a living. You could be the next Edgar Allen Poe and not even realize it.
– Posted August 21, 2013 3:34 pm

You have made a mistake now boy.

You don`t have to worry about who Gonzo is, you need to worry about what he is. He is a force of n@ture. He has f-c-u-k-d a hurric@ne. When he was born, even his d@ddy called him d@ddy.

Imagine if you will a Tsun@mi, but rather than being made of water, it is comprised of pure Ande@n Cond0r mixed with l@shings of Clint E@stwood circa 1964, Fistful of Doll@rs er@.

Now imagine that Tsun@mi g@thering it`s force up on Tier one, which I can tell you extends upwards of 22,000 feet, and is a place where ordin@ry humans would require Oxygen m@sks, so as I say imagine it g@thering it`s force, growing and growing, lightening flicker!ng, the smell of ozone in the air and word-pairings, and syll@bals clash together.
Then there is a creak as the Golden doors of tier one are pulled open by Tera P@trick and Scarlett Joh@nnson wearing nothing but smiles, and a hungry look for e@ch other.

You have a moments silence where you have the ins@ne hope that nothing will happen.

But then, suddenly there it is.

A million cubic tons of Vulture E@stwood Dragonborn fury pouring from the sky, slicing it`s way towards your very soul.

At the tip of this Tsnum@i you`ll see a sneer!ng pair of lips form, which as they grow closer draw back to reveal a set of kn@shers intent on dam@ge.

Realising your error you back away, head twisting, seek!ng an esc@pe.

You tr!p and fall onto your back and cover your eyes.

But this can do nothing to stop the be@st you have unleashed from settling it`s jaws upon your most pr!zed possess!ons and r!pping them out root and stem with a crunching twist.

That my friend is Gonzo.

If you feel this is an ex@ggeration then b@re this in mind. Do you know Keyzer Soze? Of course you do, everyone has heard of him. What most people do not know however is that Keyzer once borrowed Gonzo’s Ferr@ri 250 GT, and returned it without filling the t@nk.

This is why Gonzo now possesses a mousem@t made from Keyzers scr-0-tum.

Greetings Brother Ernie! Glad to see you’re still with us. II haven’t seen you around here or down at Vulture HQ in a while and I was beginning to fear that you might have been in poor health due to complications related to the p3nis reduction surgery you underwent last year.

Thank you for the kind words. Your tribute to me was both spot-on and elegantly written. Tier 2 posting at its finest. The kind of top end Tier 2 posting that leaves Brother Gonzo with no choice other than to reward you with a whopping 2,000,000 ESB ranking points and a simply stunning Chinese hand carved life size statue of a Eurasian Black vulture made out of the finest ebony wood money can buy!!

Tambio: records are meant to be broken. Floyd legacy will be forgotten!

Floyd himself said that as he said someone will come along and put up better numbers than him, but right now, this is my time.

As long as you have footage, boxing, and students of the game, his legacy won’t be forgotten but it will dim like the rest until one day, everything will be forgotten like everything else.

that’s why he probably cares about money more than this so called “legacy” tag that people think it really matters in history: Money is NOW, legacy is an illusion of thinking it really matters down the road.

Hec dog is the most delusional nutt hugger of Manny on the planet. Manny is so great then why hasn’t he beat anyone worth anything since Cotto in 09. Everyone he beat was weight drained Oscar, Cotto and Margecheato not to mention the guy lost 2 out of his last 3 fights. We all heard the talk of how he will be back but that remains to be seen. He didn’t KO Rios a blown up punching bag. Manny hasn’t dominated since 09 but he is so great what a joke. How can a guy turn down the biggest fight of his life with Floyd only to fight Marquez 4 and get KTFO. Now they expect for people to pay to see him fight the same ass clowns over and over. He already signed for a Marquez 5 after the Bradley fight in which he might not win.

GONZO OF NAZARETH.. Whilst I agree with the sentiment of the post of yours I’ve quoted below, impersonating any Tier 2 poster is crime punishable by death. But impersonating a Tier 1 poster, of which, as you are all keenly aware, there is only one – ie. MOI – is punishable by a fate far more grave and unspeakable than the mere extinguishing of one’s life force. Brother Gonzo aka the Real Gonzo.. is issuing you a final warning. Failure to heed this warning will result in consequences that not even my sick and depraved mind cares to ponder.

”Mayweather is the biggest robber in the history of mankind. This guy is not exciting, his style while he’s mastered it to perfection is extremely boring, he takes no risks even when his opponents are dazed. No knockout power, yet he’s able to covet large sums of money at the same comfort zone venue every time. No wonder he’s always saying its like robbing the bank, no no no! he’s robbing you fools who pay to watch him, all your get out of it is a snooze.”

Manny Pacquiao, the iconic legendary fighter will continue his success outside of the boxing ring with the world premiere of his documentary movie, “MANNY” put on display on March 8th at the prestigious South By Southwest Film Festival in Austin Texas. Manny Pacquiao is somewhat of a world leader. While the majority of fighters only fight to make a living, Manny Pacquiao reaches across the world with a movie about his life that is currently being celebrated in different parts of the world. The impact Manny Pacquiao has on society today cannot be measured. Not only is “MANNY” the movie making noise, but Manny’s highly anticipated rematch against Timothy Bradley is rumored to set more PPV records. Forget the other mismatches (Mayeather vs Maidana & Canelo vs Angulo), Manny owns Las Vegas. The city comes alive each time Manny’s makes his presence known. The ONLY 8 division boxing champion in the history of boxing is an incredible fighter to watch. Electricity fills the air as he makes his way to the boxing ring. We’ve all seen it, and some of us have actually been part of that moment standing inside the venue. The MGM Grand is Manny’s home. On occasion, he lends it out to others that can find a place to fight. Manny is boxing’s only super star at the moment. His chasing after the wind trying to get Floyd Mayweather to fight him has ended in disappointment because Mayweather wants no part of Manny Pacquiao, and that’s a fact. Manny’s unrelenting style of attack puts fear in the hearts of men. Lydell Rhodes, one of the Mayweather’s prized unbeaten pupils is learning about Manny the hard way. Rhodes has come away with immense respect and awe of the man, the myth and the living legend. He said at one point that he couldn’t see Manny’s punches coming. Rhodes also stated that Manny’s legendary power is real. Boxing fans no longer have to wonder why Floyd Mayweather will not fight Manny Pacquiao. Manny is simply the greatest pure fighter of all time. His speed, power and boxing intellect is unmatched. He is a 35 year old warrior that continues to get better. He’s not aging or going away. Don’t believe it for a second. Floyd doesn’t. Just watch and compare the the PPV numbers and see how Manny will draw all by himself. he doesn’t need an under card to sell his fight. This is Manny pacquiao. The best of our time and quite posiblly the best we’ve ever seen. Most fans would agree, trust me. Manny is the best.

One thing i do want to point out, im a harsh critic on paqiou aswell.this is in no way a debate to say paquio is much better than floyd as a i beleive they both have taken short cutts in there respective careers.i give paqiou a little more credit as far as career achievements based on fighting 3 legends within there weight classes but as we all know his status as far as the testing is conceren is suspect.

Agree.

They have been both carefully managed at certain points in their career. And some of the notable wins comes with caution of how much credit they deserve after looking at the complete story.

Maybe if I was in their position I would do the same after reviewing some things. It’s hard to tell. I’ve never been that talented in such a thing.

Tszyu was past his best by the time Floyd fought at 140. Floyd wanted that fight. Even Tszyu said he knew Floyd wanted the fight. Do you ever bother to read interviews?

Yes, if Floyd wanted the fight with Pac he could have dismissed the PED possibility, dismissed the additional testing, given Pac 50% of the Purse and allowed Bob Arum to promote the fight. But that isn’t smart, is it? If you were Floyd, you wouldn’t have done it either.
And the same could be said with Pac: Pac could have accepted the drug testing, accepted the original full offer but he didn’t. He could have accepted the 40 million but he didn’t. He could have later not resigned with bob Arum because he knows Floyd doesn’t want to deal with him but he didn’t.

So who is to blame? BOTH are to blame.

True, he could have fought Sergio Martinez who called out both Pac and Floyd but both of them refused. They both knew they would lose. I’ll give you that.

People need to actually cut out the bias for a change and look at what caused fights from not happening. It wasn’t always on Floyd. Some fight didn’t happen because of bad timing, some because of Politics, Managers, Cable-networks, etc.

I’m not saying Floyd wouldn’t avoid fighters. I think if SRR, SRL, and especially Tommy Hearns were around today, Floyd and some others wouldn’t be fighting at WW.

The Law My brother in law was a cop in the Bronx and once told me about young black kid that he arrested for attempt rape on a white night school teacher as she walked to her car. His family and homies arrived at the station house and almost started full scale riot demanding that their ‘harmless’ boy be set free. He was bailed out and re-arrested the following week, this time trying to rape a 16 year old Latino student in the bathroom of the same school. Again his parents arrived at the station house and this is what his father had this to say: “So what if he did, white slave owners did it to my people too. It’s about payback.” Something that Anony-mouse probably would say.

In his earlier days,he ran from Kostya Tyzu, Shane Mosely, Oscar De La Hoya, Paul Williams and many others

Actually, Tszyu lost to Hatton which canceled out the fight with Mayweather. Tszyu ran into the same problem when he lost to Phillips which stopped him from fighting Oscar in his next fight.
Tszyu was set to fight Mayweather in the near future. Kostya Tszyu himself said all he had to do is call Mayweather and he knew he would get a fight. He talked about this after the Hatton loss on a possible return and who he would want to fight.

Shane Mosley and Oscar De La Hoya were divsions above Floyd when they were in their prime and Floyd couldn’t get a fight with them because Floyd wasn’t “MONEY MAY” yet.

He did dodge Paul Williams though.

Horrible, ridiculous article trying to convince smart boxing fans that Maidana is the best option for Mayweather. Once again, Floyd has HUGE advantages in speed, boxing skills, agility, athleticism, experience, reflexes, talent, defense, ring generalship and every aspect of boxing. Alexander beat Maidana fairly easy, Khan beat Maidana and hit him with everything conceivable. And some other unknown guy back in 2009 gave Maidana a boxing lesson. Now, tell me how on earth Maidana has any kind of chance to win this fight. All this after Mr. Coward Mayweather puts out some DUMB pole for his fans, and the fans pick Khan, and still Mayweather makes fools of them all as he goes the opposite way that his fans voted for. Mayweather is making a mockery of this wonderful sport. He has DUCKED everyone that posed a challenge to him. He has obviously ran, hid and left the country just to avoid Manny Pacquiao. This fight will not go the distance, and it will be a replay of Mayweather vs Baldomir or worse, Larry Holmes vs Randall ‘Tex” Cobb. This will follow the massacre of Canelo vs Angulo. These are fights that will see one fighter destroying their limited one dimensional opponents. These fights are not competitive in the least. Once again, the 80′s and 90′s offered great competitive fights pitting the top contenders or champions fighting each other. Today, we have Floyd Mayweather as the model of ducking opposition, lying to his fans, and cherry picking those fights that present no challenge to him due to old age, catch weights, physically drained opponents, one dimensional or inexperience. Fans have been clamoring for Mayweather to fight Manny Pacquiao. He cowardly continues to run. The quality Cuban Erislandy Lara. He doesn’t even think about. GGG, forget about it. In his earlier days,he ran from Kostya Tyzu, Shane Mosely, Oscar De La Hoya, Paul Williams and many others. Floyd Mayweather made some good choices picking his management team. He has made a lot of money. He remains unbeaten in the record books even though he lost to Castillo and an old Oscar De La Hoya. He still is looked at as the DUCKER, DODGER, AVOIDER and most importantly, the man that is plain scared of fighting Manny Pacquiao. Floyd Mayweather will not another easy win to earn another padded victory over a tough, but very limited Marcos Maidana. And the only way these types of lower level fights will stop will be when fans stop buying these horrible PPV fights. The under card will undoubtedly be the Main Event. That’s how Haymon and company seem try to convince fans to pay ridiculous amounts of money for these PPV. Don’t buy this PPV if you’re smart. Floyd already had his laugh as he went the opposite way that his fans voted for. Don’t think for a second he won’t be laughing when you pay for next PPV.

Maidana has no chance period! The man that would have annihilated Floyd Mayweather 5 years ago and will destroy him today is Manny Pacquiao. Manny has the style, technique, athleticism to not only beat him, but stop him. We’ve seen an aging Shane Mosely alost knock Floyd out cold. Zab Judah was giving him problems and beating him. Oscar IMO beat him, but lost a split decision. Demarcus Chop Chop Corley had him frustrated and dropped him. Those guys had no chance to beat manny Pacquiao as Manny clearly destroyed Oscar. Manny Pacquiao is faster than Floyd, hits with much more power and can match Floyd’s movement. Ask Lydell Rhodes, Floyd Senior’s protege. Rhodes honestly stated recently after sparring 4rounds with the Filipino legend that he couldn’t see Manny’s punches coming. Rhodes said that he felt Manny’s power. This from a guy that sparred Floyd. Rhodes was in awe. I understand why Floyd wants no part of Manny. The southpaw power house that is Manny Pacquiao has all the attributes to beat Floyd in all areas. Floyd is a counter puncher that needs to be able to read his opponents timing. He waits, sees and counters. Manny uses unimaginable, unpredictable feints that have his opponents guessing. The shoulder roll will NOT work against a southpaw that has more speed than Floyd. Floyd can’t run away because Manny can match his movement. Floyd can’t stand toe to toe because we all know what would happen. Once Floyd’s speed advantage is nullified, the end is near. Floyd has no heart to fight as seen in the Cotto fight where he tried to fight, received a bloodied nose and swollen face, and decided never to try and out gut a fighter again. Manny Pacquio’s style is complex. No one beats him on a one fight basis, no one. Manny also has a beautiful supporting wife tht gives him much strength. Their situation is like Rocky II when Rocky is in the hospital with Adrian after she awakes. They have a short conversation, and she tells Rocky that he looks tired. Rocky starts talking about not maybe doing something else. Adrian tells Rocky to come here, closer to her. She says “There’ one thing I want you to do for me, Rocky “What”. Adrian responds “win.Win” and the rest is history. I get somewhat emotional as watch that scene and relate it to Manny and Jinkee. Manny is the real life Rocky 100 times over. His resume dwarfs any other fighter including Floyd Mayweather. The truth of the matter is that Manny Pacquiao is the better fighter and the better man. Come April 12, Manny Pacquiao takes over the boxing world as King of the Ring, The Peoples Champion, and The Greatest fighting Machine of all time. Trust me, Floyd will never beat Manny Pacquiao. Manny is the best!

anonymous As a former member of the NYPD I can say it’s a FACT that before you continue to verbally attack white women just thought I’d let you know there are more black prostitutes PER CAPITA than any other ethnic group in the U.S. of A. The stats say that more black males between ages 16-25 are more apt to be arrested than the other ethnic group. The same goes for HIV/AIDS spreaders, black women are sadly on the top of the list. Let’s not forget that PER CAPITA the Blacks are #1 in rapes, sexual assaults, molestation, class A,B,C,D,E classified felonies committed, assault, criminal, mischief, shoplifting, chain snatching… There was a saying in the Department that fastest human in the world is a black man running down a CROWDED city street with a stolen gold chain in his hand. I heard it first from my black squad car partner when I was a rookie at the 23rd precinct on W.123rd street between 7th & 8th avenues, in Harlem. maybe you’ve been there for the ‘wrong’ reasons. Another precinct joke from black & white cops alike is that Black addicts are the best in subway turn-style jumping, good enough to make our nation’s Olympic team after submitting to drug rehab. So yes, your race are naturally gifted athletes. Many have brought great pride to their race and heroes for all races to admire. Too bad you’re such an ugly stain on the race, the whole human race.

Mayweather has nothing to hide. his violations have been transparent, were flagged, and penalized. Pacquiao’s* asterisk refers to the fact that he inexplicably rejected stricter testing and sabotaged their once eagerly-anticipated P4P showdown. whether it was something illegal or just a lack of confidence, Pacquiao* was obviously hiding something. what it was? we may never know.

Why is no one mentioning anything about Puerto Rican fighters ..why does the whole world hate Puerto Ricans. Just because Puerto ricans are lazy and good for nothing .and the Puerto Rican fighters are all quitters like Cotto and Calderone and big cry babies like Cintron .

“Pacquiao* would have been the toughest, most competitive opponent that Mayweather could have faced. Hands down. Not debateable”. too bad Team Punkuiao* didn’t agree. otherwise, they wouldn’t have walked away from the opportunity to prove it over stricter testing. how could Floyd have possibly known? HOW?

“Yeah, hindsight is 50/50. It’s so easy now to say he would have beaten them anyways”. well see, that’s where this fight-fan enjoys a distinct advantage in this discussion. i wasn’t relying on hindsight when i posted Marquez would need a minor-miracle to defeat Floyd before their weigh-in. i posted virtually the same before the Ortiz bout. Btw, “defend yourself at all times” is not an “escapist answer”. it’s a cardinal rule of Boxing that Ortiz stupidly or absent-mindedly forgot to honor. i also posted that Canelo was too inexperienced for Mayweather. it’s interesting(?). while some posters desperately accuse me of posting things i never posted, others forget what i actually Did post(?!). including that i never considered Pacquiao* to be anything more than a promotional rival to Mayweather but in a boxing ring? i’ve alwasy described that matchup to be a lopsided, anticlimactic mismatch in Floyd’s favor. fortunately, i don’t forget and i don’t rely on hindsight.

Mega fight? Really, Oh, I see GBP wrote this article. This is a lousy fight that Mayweather has cherry picked as always. Maidana, a tough fighter that has no speed, defense, movement reflexes, agility or athleticism is going to ge beaten up and stopped. The same type of fight Canelo has against Angulo. PPV fights? Come on, these fights are so predictable. I know GBP will try their best to fool people into believing these fights will be competitive. Wrong. Don’t pend your money. I already know the outcome, trust me on this. Canelo destroys Angulo and Mayweather beats up the predicable one dimensional Maidana. Don’t waste your money.

“Pacquioa got tagged alot by Marquez ”

Using your reasoning Sheriff, please tell me why Khan annihilated Judah in four rounds but he went the distance with Garcia, the same guy who stopped Khan in four rounds. Based on Khan’s performance against Judah, according to your logic, he should have beaten Danny Garcia as well.

You never know–Floyd might have a very hard time with Pacquiao’s style–much like Shane Mosley never could figure out Vernon Forrest. Vernon beat Mosley in the amateurs, then turned around and beat him in the pros too.

Although the odds favor Mayweather to beat Pacquiao, you never know. Anything can happen in boxing.

“i’m not even gonna get started with my book on Pacquiao”

If you have a “book” on Pacquiao, you really need to let go of your obsession. In 2009, or even 2010, Manny Pacquiao would have been the toughest, most competitive opponent that Mayweather could have faced. Hands down. Not debateable. But like I said before, not today.

te tumbo, you know the old saying: Hindsight is 50/50. Who knows how well Floyd would have fought if he would met Marquez at the weight he was supposed to? Who knows what would have happened had Joe Cortez given clearer signals and been paying attention to the fighters instead of looking the other way and having a conversation with someone outside the ring while the fight was going on? Who knows what would have happened if Floyd would have made a fight with Canelo right away, instead of waiting to see what Canelo and his team would do to get a fight with him? Am I insinuating that outcomes would have been different? No. But Floyd has always stated that he wants to fight on a fair playing field–that’s why he insists on the random drug testing now. So, when he busted weight against Marquez was that fair? When he sucker-punched Ortiz was that fair (saying Ortiz ‘deserved it’ is an escapist answer). When he only agreed to fight Canelo at a catchweight, was that fair? For Floyd Mayweather Jr.? The greatest of all time? Woudn’t the greatest of all time welcome the challenge of facing one of his top rivals in his prime condition?

Yeah, hindsight is 50/50. It’s so easy now to say he would have beaten them anyways. But well then, why didn’t he NOT do all those things in those three fights? If he was going to beat them anyways, what did he have to lose by making the appropriate weight, by not sucker punching, and by insisting that Canelo fight at the full jr. middleweight limit?

See, there really are some blemishes there.

Sheriff Joe’s chicken

I honestly, think even a prime Pacquioa would have lost to Mayweather. It would have been a nice war but Mayweather just simply has the edge in skills. Pacquioa got tagged alot by Marquez (counterpuncher) and Mayweather is a bigger version of Marquez (counterpuncher as well). That’s Pacquioa kryptonite, excellent counterpunchers. None of his past opponents were good counterpunchers except for one….and the last fight proved what happens to Pacquioa when hes up with one without a doubt.

“floyd taking marquez up from 135 to 146 is laughable”(?). perhaps but what was truly knee-slapping was Marquez’s apparent strategy to head Pacquiao* off at the pass by defeating a steppingstone(?) named Mayweather(?!). the only tactical error in Marquez’s ultimately successful mission to catch and KO Pacquiao*. i don’t think anyone ever understood just how personal Marquez took those KDs.

“He did five years ago when he was at the height of his career”. i’m not even gonna get started with my book on Pacquiao* but suffice it to say that Floyd was occupying lofty heights himself in those days and (as you noted) has actually gained altitude since then. Pacquiao* has been experiencing incremental decline for the past couple of years.

“i have also never understood the perception that Pacquiao* poses a serious threat to Mayweather(?). he doesn’t enjoy a single advantage and the disadvantages only play into Floyd’s strengths”

He did five years ago when he was at the height of his career. But he has been in too many hard wars and over the past two years has lost key fights. Floyd keeps winning but Manny does not. If they were to fight today, tomorrow, or a year from now, Floyd would beat him.

“I will not let Floyd go for cheating on his weight for his fight with Marquez, for sucker-punching Ortiz for a KO victory, and for waiting to accept a fight with Canelo until he could have Canelo fight him at a catchweight” granted but all of these guys were begging to fight Mayweather. he wasn’t looking for them. also, when you apply “defend yourself at all times” to the Ortiz bout, Victor got what he wanted: the Emergency exit. that or he is simply too dense to ever be elite. i personally believe that it’s a bit of both. anyway, making weight v. Marquez or fighting Canelo at 154lbs wouldn’t have made a difference. Marquez was too small and Canelo made the mistake of thinking that he could outbox Mayweather. before he knew it, the fight was over and he neglected to score points and that’s what Mayweather does to undefeateds or Worse.

True. Why would random testing have cause the fight not to happen? Pacquioa ran from the testing, simple as that.

i have also never understood the perception that Pacquiao* poses a serious threat to Mayweather(?). he doesn’t enjoy a single advantage and the disadvantages only play into Floyd’s strengths. quite honestly, a prime and undefeated Corralles† posed a bigger threat to Mayweather and look at what Floyd did to him? it is pure delusion to claim that Floyd walked away from $25-$50 million to avoid the likes of Pacquiao*. utterly absurd.

“Floyd’s isn’t hard to find. he’s faced them All and remains Undefeated.”

Te tumbo, I agree with you –for the most part. But just as you have attached an “*” to Pacquiao’s name–and you will never let it go–I will not let Floyd go for cheating on his weight for his fight with Marquez, for sucker-punching Ortiz for a KO victory, and for waiting to accept a fight with Canelo until he could have Canelo fight him at a catchweight. And let’s not forget that in the shadows there still lurks the rumor that Floyd failed his “A” sample drug tests on three separate occasions for three separate fights. Floyd Mayweather Jr. is an incredible fighter and his record apparently speaks for itself but all that glitters Mayweather is not gold.

how could Floyd have possibly known that stricter testing would be a deal-breaker for Manny*? HOW?

Posted March 5, 2014 11:46 pm

“Floyd sent Manny over a contract in 09 for 40 million dollars. He turned it down and Floyd is the one scared. ”

“Scared or no, let’s remember that by Floyd refusing to give Manny more than 40 million, he also screwed himself out of a purse that could potentially have been in the vicinity of $100 million dollars. Even if he would have agreed to a 50/50 split, Floyd would have made much more fighting Manny than he had for another other single fight. So it’s just as ridiculous to ride Manny for not taking the 40 Mil when Floyd opted to lose even more by not fighting him.

“MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nev. has won the right to host…)

I would greatly appreciate it if any contributing writer or a member of ESB staff, or of GBP or the MGM Grand itself, could tell me how the MGM Grand “won the right” to host Mayweather/Maidana?

Considering this “right” has been “won” by the MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, NV, for eight of Floyd’s fights over the past seven years, and considering that all 10 of Floyd’s fights since 2006 have been held in Las Vegas, NV, it seems like more of a foregone conclusion where a Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight is going to be held rather than the special accomplishment it’s made out to be.

So in all sincerity, I really would like to know exactly how this “right” was “won.”

Honestly though, my guess is the answer is: Floyd wanted it.

It amazes me how some of these morons have a double standard. Manny fought Cotto, Oscar, Hatton and Marquez. But when Floyd beat these same guys they were cherry picked. Floyd sent Manny over a contract in 09 for 40 million dollars. He turned it down and Floyd is the one scared. Everything he does will be scrutinized and criticized. Manny looses and they can excuse like Marquez was on PEDs and he got lucky. And C.J. Ross cheated him.

at this point of his career floyd should only think about making history, he already has alot of money and to me the only fight that makes since especially after how bad he looked in hos last fight would be sergio martinez who as of today is still considered thee middleweght champion and the best middle since bernard.that fight makes all the since in the world, the middlewieght title against the number one man.i would hate to see martinez lose to a ggg or kid chocolate type fight, someone on the way up.the best welter against th best middle, thats how i see it.2 great boxers, would be a great chess match.

“he’s faced them All and remains Undefeated.” true…I’ll add that he rather fight ‘em coming off big wins & holding a championship belt…Floyd’s the premier fighter of this generation & likely will end up being the GOAT; We’re witnessing a truly unique talent performing before our own eyes & time…stop the hate & learn to appreciate greatness. free advice.

Maidana is at a plateau if not at his very peak. few expected him to beat the snot out of Broner but he was relentless in performing the task. he was also thoroughly prepared, physically and mentally, which I sincerely appreciate. it’s why he is the worthiest (if not the most challenging) welter of them all. Marquez, Ortiz, Guerrero, Alvarez, Cotto, Mosley, Hatton, DLH, and even Baldomir were all coming off of big wins if not streaks, which made them worthy opponents as well. just look at that line-up(?!). identify a single one of those fighters who Floyd wouldn’t be accused of ducking if he didn’t actually face and defeat them? Maidana’s coming up. Khan in the mix IF he delivers a big win himself v. the likes of Broner. Bradley or Pacquiao* become contenders IF they deliver with a big win v. each other. Btw, Corralles, Castillo, “Chicanito†”, Chavez, even Judah were no slouches themselves when Mayweather faced and defeated them. it’s a well-established pattern. Floyd’s isn’t hard to find. he’s faced them All and remains Undefeated.

Yes I realize Maidana has the WBA belt… but Floyd only holds up the Green one… so it doesn’t matter. Thought I’d throw that in before someone corrects me.

Posted March 5, 2014 10:46 pm 


MNboxingFAN – Sean

Boycott. Maidana isn’t on Floyd’s level and isn’t PPV worthy. Plus he’s not a legit Welter. I’m so tired of Mayweather only fighting for the WBC belt… and only on May 3rd… and only at the MGM… the record is played out. Next!

He works and lives there but he isn’t from there.
They’ll give him the boot like any other act in Vegas when they want to.

Oscar was supposed to be the hometown boy but that didn’t always workout. That’s what I meant.

Dinotello, presently and for a number of years, Floyd has been “from” Vegas. He has lived there and fought there for years. It’s his home. Of course he’s from Las Vegas. He’s originally from Michigan, but he’s now “from” Las Vegas.
