Excuse me, I meant to say “…Floyd should be scrutinized under the same shadow of doubt.”Posted March 20, 2014 10:37 pm
OMG, much bigger post than I expected. So sorry, the quoted article really made it big.Posted March 20, 2014 10:35 pm
“Btw, Manny* avoiding Floyd over stricter testing remains the only issue worth addressing.”
Oh, I don’t know. How about re-addressing rumors that Floyd failed three “A” sample drug tests , and that the USADA gave him a pass all three times? It was big news when it first broke in 2012, but after the scribe who broke the story was threatened with lawsuits, and after Floyd suddenly made an out-of-court settlement with Pac over his lawsuit (after news of the rumor broke), all of a sudden everything went quiet. From Thomas Hauser’s original article on the subject:
“On May 20, 2012, a rumor filtered through the drug-testing community that Mayweather had tested positive on three occasions for an illegal performance-enhancing drug.
More specifically, it was rumored that Mayweather’s “A” sample had tested positive on three occasions and, after each positive test, USADA had found exceptional circumstances in the form of inadvertent use and gave Floyd a waiver. This waiver, according to the rumor, negated the need for a test of Floyd’s “B” sample. And because the “B” sample was never tested, a loophole in USADA’s contract with Mayweather and Golden Boy allowed the testing to proceed without the positive “A” sample results being reported to Mayweather’s opponent or the Nevada State Athletic Commission (which had jurisdiction over the fights).
In late-May, Pacquiao’s attorneys heard the rumor. On June 4, 2012, they served document demands and subpoenas on Mayweather, Mayweather Promotions, Golden Boy and USADA calling for the production of all documents that related to PED testing of Mayweather for the Shane Mosley, Victor Ortiz and Miguel Cotto fights.
The documents were not produced. There was a delay in the proceedings while Floyd spent nine weeks in the Clark County Detention Center after pleading guilty to charges of domestic violence and harassment. Upon his release from jail on August 2nd, settlement talks heated up.
On September 25, 2012, a stipulation of settlement ending the defamation case was filed with the court. The parties agreed that the terms of settlement would be kept confidential. Prior to the agreement being signed, two sources with detailed knowledge of the proceedings told this writer that Mayweather’s initial monetary settlement offer was “substantially more” than Pacquiao’s attorneys had expected it would be and an agreement in principle was reached soon afterward.
As part of the settlement, the Mayweathers and Mayweather Promotions issued a statement that read: “Floyd Mayweather Jr., Floyd Mayweather Sr., Roger Mayweather and Mayweather Promotions wish to make it clear that they never intended to claim that Manny Pacquiao has used or is using any performance-enhancing drugs nor are they aware of any evidence that Manny Pacquiao has used performance-enhancing drugs. Manny Pacquiao is a great champion and no one should construe any of our prior remarks as claiming that Manny Pacquiao has used performance-enhancing drugs.”
My point is, there is no concrete proof ever shown that Manny ever did PEDs or that he had anything to hide. There’s also no concrete proof–that we know of–that Floyd failed three drug tests and that the USADA gave him a free pass, i.e.: an intentional cover-up, on all three of them without requiring B sample tests to repudiate or substantiate the results of the first tests, or that he or the USADA had anything to hide.
So, why is there no asterisk next to Floyd’s last name? Why te tumbo, do you continue to be so bitter towards Manny Pacquiao when Floyd should be exposed under the same shadow of doubt? I don’t recall any scribe or reporter and boxing analyst or commentator, or anyone in the sport for that matter–other than Teddy Atlas who couldn’t seem to produce an email that he claimed existed–who could even offer as much information against Pacquiao as was offered against Mayweather.
And today, Floyd looks more ripped than ever when he fights. How is that possible? Especially at 147 lbs. a weight at which he has had many fights and been fighting at for a long time? Rumor?Posted March 20, 2014 10:34 pm
Wow, Tumbo…if I sound like a 12 year old mean girl, then what the heck was that? LOL
Dude, you don’t have to be threatened that I’m on the comment boards also, Tumbo. LOL. I know that your ego leads you to believe that your king of this domain, but c’mon, man! This is getting ridiculous. LOL
Whether you want to recognize this or not, I’m a boxing insider, brother.
I don’t know if all the interviews, information, or relationships I have within the industry gave it away, but I am and that’s not going to change anytime soon.
So go on and play nice with the other kids, while the adults speak…and maybe you will learn something about the sport if you are humble enough to listen.
Thanks for playing, Tumbo!!Posted March 20, 2014 5:43 pm

Well nothing was more exciting than watching Manny get KTFO by Marquez who was tired of being cheated. Manny is on the outs and his fights are no longer any draw. Look how much his ppvs have gone down since his looses. While Floyd continues to sell out arenas. Arum thought Manny was special so he turned down 40 million now I bet he is kicking himself in the ass for not taking it considering he has no big fights in his future and is 70 million in back taxes and you pactards talk all this crap about 09 and how he will be back but when? Agaisnt Bradley hell half the people don’t even know who Bradley is the other half don’t even respect him. Hell no people are not even paying attention to Manny or this fight…Posted March 20, 2014 1:27 pm
“Nobody knows the real reason Floyd does not want to work with Arum.”
Peej, I wouldn’t be surprised if it has more to do with Al Haymon than with Floyd. After all, Haymon is also Floyd’s “advisor.”Posted March 20, 2014 12:30 pm
Nobody knows the real reason Floyd does not want to work with Arum. I am sure it has things to do when he was signed with Top Rank and the circus that happened with the Pac vs Floyd negotiations. One thing I do know is that Arum came out and said Floyd does not dictate when Pac fights, he says the fight has to be 50/50, said there needed to be a stadium built, HBO has to be apart of the fight and apparently they have to determine which company does the drug testing. So there are major reasons why the fight will never be made. And lots of them reside with Arum. And if history tells us anything it is the simple fact that Arum can’t get his fighters on board with the random testing. Just ask Bradley as he has had to jump through hoops twice with the drug testing just to make the fight happen after being promised and noted in contracts about the drug testing policy.Posted March 20, 2014 12:25 pm
Ah yes Lara got a world title that he did not earn in the ring. He was just give that belt. I would like to see the fight made just so Canelo can show everyone that Lara is not what people think he is. The fight will be made now that he has that paper title that way they can unify those 2 belts. Lara will get beat by Canelo and possibly KOd.Posted March 20, 2014 12:18 pm

Btw, Manny* avoiding Floyd over stricter testing remains the only issue worth addressing. everything else are promotional red-herrings designed to deflect attention from Pacquiao’s* actual profile of careful cherrypicking and avoiding his primary P4P rivals unless all of his conditions are met including that his opponents request no conditions whatsoever. you’re so god@mn clueless that you missed the entire plot of this story. “journalist”? pft?!Posted March 20, 2014 11:03 am

Good to hear from you, Murderman!!
The beautiful thing about the sweet science and all of its political glory is that it’s not absolute. Trainers and fighters will often disagree about everything under the sun when it comes to boxing. LOL
Murderman, I guarantee you that if Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Richard Schaefer drew up a contract that had Floyd and Manny’s name printed on it, the Filipino icon would have seriously considered it.
But just like Bradley stated as to why he resigned with Top Rank as well…he wasn’t guaranteed any offers from either Mayweather Promotions or Golden Boy Promotions…the only opportunities he was guaranteed was from Bob Arum.
Just because I know Mayweather is the only person standing in the way of this fight, doesn’t mean that I think he’s afraid or doesn’t eventually want to face Manny in the future.
To be honest with you, Mayweather Sr. has told me that he believes that Floyd could possibly be saving the fight with Manny as his swan song.Posted March 20, 2014 9:27 am
@ joeseph herron – how habe u been my friend. You know i view you as a boxing god but i respectfull disagree w you in regard to may vs pac. Can you answer this? If your pac why don’t you follow jmm and cotto blueprints? Briefly leave tr, immediately get fight w may! Why would you resign w tr when floyd told you he would NEVER do buisness w arum! Also pac turned down 40 mil in 09. Y? Arum! So to suggest floyd is the only reason why pac vs may haven’t fought yet is inaccurate. Ill still keep supporting you friend.

Manny cannot afford to retire win or loose he must keep fighting to get out of debt. But the reality is he is not getting big money fights no mega fights on the horizon either. Hell he is getting 20 million to fight Bradley but my the time he pays out all the crabs he probably will have to fork the whole thing over to the IRS. Manny will never leave Arum he is a humble ignorant immigrant who continues to be exploited Manny already stated that he has to fight ten more times but my question is who is he going to fight? If he somehow survives Bradley he has Marquez 5 no way he beats both. He is destined to be punch drunk with slurred speech like so many of his predecessors before him like Ali fighting past his prime the key is to go out on top with all yourPosted March 20, 2014 2:51 am

LOL…most of Al Haymon’s fighters aren’t signed with Golden Boy Promotions and couldn’t sell tickets to save their lives.
The only Al Haymon fighter who is a legitimate boxing draw is Floyd…why do you think Al is trying like heck to sign as many fighters as he can while he has the “Floyd” leverage?
Schaefer is allowing Al to jam every single one of his fighters down everyone’s throats and eat up every single tv date, even though they can’t sell tickets and aren’t signed with Golden Boy.
That’s the real reason why Oscar and Richard are at odds right now.
If Floyd’s PPV performs well on May 3rd, expect a bold move from Richard and Al.

Na Canelo has reached his peak and he is pretty dangerous from what I saw. He grew up in the pro game so he learned how to be a pro. He turned pro like at 14 or 15 in Mexico.

The Floyd fight was signed when Canelo was only 22… He was green all right… He still is because he has so few amateur fights.
Canelo won’t reach his peak year for maybe another 7 years … Floyd’s calculation was that Canelo didn’t have a finished jab.. finished defense.. and that over all he just lacked polish..
Lara is very polished because of his massive amateur background and all his sparring with the Charlo Bros over the last couple years… That finally brought him way up to where he was versus Trout … he’s about ready for Floyd.
I don’t think Floyd is ready for Lara… Doesn’t sound like it.Posted March 19, 2014 3:07 pm
Canelo had 40 something fights and you say he is green? Please. If you have a title then you are a titlest and you have to defend that title. People on here complaining that he hasn’t unified the division but when he is taking on another titlest then there is an issue with that titlest. He took on Canelo who was the champ, not a titlest but a champ and you got excuses. It is just that Floyd is held to a higher double standard than any other boxer.Posted March 19, 2014 1:40 pm
Floyd fought a prime Cotto… That was an interesting fight.Posted March 19, 2014 1:39 pm
Floyd actually fought 17 champs… However, he didn’t fight them all when they were prime age or prime condition.
He fought them when they were green like Canelo… over the hill like Mosley… or they weren’t that fantastic in the first place.

If Maidana has any chance at all, he needs to go for broke and jump on Mayweather right away. Mayweather is the most vulnerable in the early rounds. Once he gets into mechanical rhythm, Floyd is nearly unstoppable. Maidana does have fight-changing power, but Mayweather has a way of neutralizing your best weapon. I see Mayweather frustrating Maidana in the later rounds, and I hope Maidana does not resort to dirty tactics as he done in the past.Posted March 19, 2014 10:47 am

But that is every Floyd opponent at 147. If you don’t like the fight then go with your Floydcott and see how successful it really is.Posted March 19, 2014 9:37 am

I trained in Jesse’s gym dude was cool as f*** but IMO Maidana has no chance. Sergio Martinez was able to outbox Maidana fairly ease when they sparred(which is YouTube) so I’m sure Mayweather will have no problem.Posted March 19, 2014 9:30 am
the last hard fight mayweather had was in a hotel room with oscar and ann wolfe.Posted March 19, 2014 9:05 am
Maidana got no role in this fight to win so don’t be fooled of saying that this is a competitive fight that Maidana got a chance. Maidana got zero percent to win.It was already in the script.Posted March 19, 2014 8:48 am
Maidana is another handpicked opponent for fraud zero record.Posted March 19, 2014 8:43 am
The only way maidana would win is by one out of nowhere, unexpected, unpracticed and unprepared lucky punch! He’s to slow for gayweather, that’s why he chosen him instead of khan.Posted March 19, 2014 7:50 am
If you think Maidana stands a chance against Mayweather then please go watch Alexander vs Maidana. Marcos was out of his feet about 5 times in that fight. Go watch the fight and then come back and tell us what will Maidana bring into this fight. Broner is the new Berto now, beat him and get a fight with Floyd. Maidana was lucky the fight was scheduled for only 10 rounds coz Alexander was putting a whippin on him. After the 5th round Marcos had a look of a beaten man, now we expect him to perform miracles against Floyd. It’s a flippin joke if you ask me.Posted March 19, 2014 7:22 am
Jesse James Leija? Haven’t heard that name 4 a while. I met him when I was a bit younger, good guy. He looked very diff the day after Kostya handed him his ass.Posted March 19, 2014 4:59 am
Far from the best, except by ring magazine and 99% percent of experts….they must all b wrong?Posted March 19, 2014 4:48 am
May Puzzyweather is far from the best, the chump wore the skirt for 7 years, take it off fight the pacmanPosted March 19, 2014 1:54 am
Floyd will use the hit and run tactic like he did with Hatton! Maidana is slower and will get tired of chasing Floyd around. Floyd is a smart gifted boxer. The only way you can beat Floyd is by score cards and that is impossible to happen!Posted March 19, 2014 1:54 am
No question Floyd the best right now, he is going to try to keep maidana at the end of the jab most of the time. For safety, and he he mix in his jab and left hook, or straight right as he switch getting out of a corner or lead with it when maidana get close. F
Maidana has lobbing punches he can change the punch in flight a little low or back. He will catch Floyd going back and down that Floyd habit , hatten was throwing this lobbing punch and was clubbing Floyd. But he ended up too predictable and ate a right lead coming in.

LOl…obviously that wasn’t me who posted this earlier!!
Moderators…where are you? LOLPosted March 18, 2014 11:20 pm
Jessie Leiga was and still is a class act. Broner is no Mayweather and I’m not sure Maidana is going to be able to catch Mayweather. Floyd has supernatural reflexes and will pop left, left, left, right, then he will time a straight right hand and that will be all she wrote. Can lightening strike? I’m sure it can but I doubt it.Posted March 18, 2014 10:51 pm
Floyd will win because he is the master of shoulder rolling defense.Posted March 18, 2014 10:09 pm
Broker vs Mayweather, If Mayweather vs Broner fight does happen it will become shoulder rolling contestPosted March 18, 2014 10:04 pm
Baldy Leija, you have got no hair.Posted March 18, 2014 8:51 pm
Boxing 411 will capture all kinds of footage featuring prospects and seasoned pros alike!!Posted March 18, 2014 8:48 pm
Yes, Hidalg0…because I have a lot of friends on both cards, I really want to show my support. I can’t wait!! Great unsigned and unrecognized talent on both fight cards!!Posted March 18, 2014 8:47 pm
Joseph, do you plan on going to either of Jesse’s events in April?Posted March 18, 2014 8:45 pm
Broner v Mayweather
This fight will happen, Broner v Mayweather, Maidana beats Mayweather, Khan beats Broner on the undercard, a superfight between Maidana and Khan, the losers Broner and Mayweather fight each other.Posted March 18, 2014 8:34 pm
Floyd by TKO.Posted March 18, 2014 8:04 pm
I loved that fight, and James loves to talk about that fight because no one outside of his friends and family believed that he could win!!
Thanks for bringing that up, Deepwater!! Good times!!Posted March 18, 2014 7:27 pm
