HECDOG I just checked the followers on twitter for Mayweather and Pacquiao.
Floyd has 4.77m followers and Manny has 1.25m. I checked Amir Khan and he has 1.4m and sad case Broner has only 0.168m (paltry),

Why do you keep lying bro’?
Talk facts and don’t b.s.

From these statistical facts it seems that Floyd has more than a big enough fan base to get people to buy his fights.

Just thought you should know based on your recent comment that he’s stealing from the fan bases of Broner and Khan.

You need to do some proper research and stop shooting up and day dreaming.

SANITY

Porter , Pacquiao , Thurman , Bradley at 147 . The most dangerous in the division. Floyd has fought NONE of them and won’t fight any of them .

Lara at 154 . Floyd wont fight him. Golovkin at 154-160. Floyd wont fight him . Floyd could have fought Martinez at 160. Nope .

Its as if Sugar Ray Leonard refused to fight Benitez , Duran ( who contrary to myth was a welterweight by that stage , he hadnt made 135 in years) , Hearns and Hagler.

Its like Emile Griffith refusing to fight anyone with a pulse above 147.

In the end boxing is a vicious and dangerous sport and I have nothing against Floyd milking bums for easy big money. He and his team have done very well in that area but dont tell me he is one of the great ones. The great ones do the unexpected , the great ones risk it all . Floyd is not great , just very good.

He has faced a lineup of aging , stylistically suitable types . It was very noticeable that the way past his best Cotto had enough boxing technique and the jab to give FM jr difficulty. Hence Maidana who in reality lost to Khan and who beat Broner ( so what ) .

If this fight doesn’t go the distant and Floyd KO Maidana then it’s really a fix fight. Floyd 37 years old KOing a granite chin Maidana will be a shock. If this is a legit fight it will go the distant. Floyd will be focusing in defense and less on offense. Maidana is a hard hitting puncher but a slow and doesn’t have a good stamina. I say Floyd by 12 long boring rounds UD.

“mans” world…..you sound like an old lady bringing up things that happened years ago. You’re talking about what happened in 09 as if it should matter today??? Serious????? Yesterday was yesterday!! Today is Today and that my friend is all that matters! Floyd can’t hide behind that excuse forever. If you knew anything, you’d know that so called “sweet deal” offered time back of 40M was anything but! It wasn’t as cut and dry and you want to believe.

Floyd’s only skill of stopping anyone is by sucker punch. He hasn’t had a ko in yeaaaaaars!! Maidana beat Ortiz legitamately….Floyd could not. Floyd will win but NOT by KO, TKO or whatever. This is a “convenience” fight for Floyd and his fanboys think he’s spectacular because of it.

“Floyd also said he was better that srr. They could fight ten times and srr beats floyd ever time.”

SRR lost every round to Ralph Jones and wouldn’t rematch him. SRR was hittable. Floyd beats Ralph Jones 100 out of 100.

Marcos gets stopped by Floyd this will not go the distance. Floyd is fighting for one thing Money, he could careless about bragging rights. Manny blew the deal in 09 now he will never deal with Arum because of the history going back to when he managed Floyd. This fight will never be made as long as Arum is wanting a lions share of the purse and can dictate the terms. Floyd can fight Marcos, Kahn in England then Danny Garcia or Porter and pay them what he wants without any problems. And clear 300 million over what he already has, Fighting Manny only benifits Manny at this point.

Manny Pacquiao and his fans are still celebrating Manny’s EXCITING victory against a YOUNG, UNBEATEN Timothy Bradley. Yes, the same Timothy Bradley that no one wants to fight. Floyd Mayweather even visited Timothy Bradley the week of the Manny Pacquiao fight and gave him advice, support and told him they would have a future date once he beat Manny Pacquiao. It’s obvious that Floyd wants to see Manny lose so that he doesn’t have to fight him, but guess what Floyd, Manny destroyed Timothy Bradley, and he’s looking right at you. Keep running Floyd, Manny isn’t going anywhere. The manner in which Manny Pacquiao beat Bradley was impressive. Speed, power, boxing and athleticism. Manny Pacquiao continues to beat the Young, strong lions that are trying to take out the older lion. The boxing world acknowledges that Bradley is a fighter in his prime. One of the best today. Floyd Mayweather on the other hand chooses to cherry pick another one dimensional fighter in order to make himself look good, and uses Amir Khan’s fan base, Broner’s fan base and a few others to up his PPV numbers. Manny Pacquiao uses only his name. This is an ongoing story that has been playing out for years. And this is again why the majority of sports fans and sports writers agree that Manny Pacquiao is the greatest fighter of all time. Manny ducked no one. He fought and beat the best of his time. He’s the ONLY 8 division boxing champion in history, and he’s the most popular fighting machine in boxing history. Manny Pacquiao’s legacy is cemented forever. Manny Pacquiao could easily be fill the description of a new species that was recently found in Vancouver Canada. They discovered these killer sponges in the ocean. They were very small in size, but attacked their prey as stone cold killers. I’m not sure if they have named them yet, but the name Manny Pacquiao could be fitting. Both are small in size, and can take you out quickly. Manny Pacquiao has returned to the great country of the Philippines and is back at work taking care of his people. He received non stop ovations from the millions of his adoring fans. Manny has been helping the survivors of the typhoon with the rebuilding of their homes, roads and every other necessity they need. He has auctioned off his fight memorabilia and is continuing to raise money for those in need. He is a Godly man on a mission to help people. And, once again, we have the same story of two men. Manny Pacquiao, the humble, loving, caring, Godly, loyal, Peoples Champion doing his work inside and outside the ring. And then we have Floyd Mayweather, an egotistical, money loving, look at me first, let me show off how many women, cars, materials and friends I can buy hypocrite. Now, you tell me which one will be respected and admired more by the world. Keep your eyes and ears open for Manny Pacquiao’s next fight. This is a legend that is a must to see. A man with character and love for humanity. Don’t miss a chance to see him fight live. You will witness a treasure far more worthy than diamonds and jewels. You will witness the greatest fighter of all time, trust me, no one beats Manny Pacquiao. Manny is the best!

Pac-Bradley II was fixed by Arum. You can tell Bradley just stopped doing what was effective. Bradley tanked the fight for bigger a pay under-the-table plus a promise of more lucrative Top Rank fights in the future. If Bradley didn’t pull his punches I can see him KO’ing PAc in the 8th or 9th round. Pac was gasping for air after round 4.

Arum started gearing up to offer Pac to Floyd. Expect Arum to fix more fights for PAc. Floyd won’t bite btw, unless Pac beats top tier opponents like Canelo, Maidana, Khan, Lara… and should be fair and square with RBT.

Floyd is “The greatest” only because because he has said it so many times that his lies have become the truth. His idiot fans started repeating the lie and the the networks did too. He generates the money, so he gets hyped. What more proof than HBO and Showtime? When Floyd was fighting in HBO Showtime was crtical of him while HBO kissed his ass. Now that Floyd switched to Showtime Jim Lampley was dissing him on The Fight Game. You can bet that if this was an HBO PPV Lampley would have only spoken against Floyd VS. Maidana at his own peril.

Floyd Mayweather is without a doubt the GREATEST Boxer to ever lace them UP. Compubox agrees with ME on that. The list comprised of the Fighters that have defeated 11 CHAMPS in 13 straight Fights agrees with ME TOO. Its extremely FOOLISH for anyone to try to tear Mayweather’s INSIDE the Ring accomplishments based on what he does OUTSIDE the Ring. IF you don’t like how he behaves OUTSIDE the Ring then stop being a FANBOY who follows celebrities every move. Focus on your OWN life while they focus on theirs. Then just pay attention to the Fights.

Floyd’s Defense is STUPENDOUS. This is what AMATEURS call boring because they want to see a guy get hit. They want to see back and forth action or they want to see a savage KO. These are SIMPLE minded fans. Floyd is the ONE man BOMB Squad. He diffuses his opponents explosiveness. SO the people who came to see the FIREWORKS show of course BOO and go home.

Floyd’s Offense is the most accurate thing a Boxing Ring has ever SEEN. He lands almost 50% of his shots. WOW!!! There is no man that anyone can name DEAD or ALIVE that can match it. Floyd is SO GREAT that he doesn’t even need a KO to WIN. Because NO one can beat him on points.

Even when they place Judges there to ROB him he SPANKS his opponent SO lopsidedly that he ends UP defeating the Fight FIX.

Manny had the deal of a LIFETIME to facd the GOAT and he walked away from it. Now he’s chasing what COULD have been for the rest of his LIFE. He keeps his phone on 24/7 in hopes that he will get one more call but its not coming. Thats why when they say when opportunity KNOCKS you have to SEIZE the moment. Manny learned that the hard way. Canelo was NO DUMMY. He took the BULL by the horns and jumped at the chance to be in the Richest Fight in History vs the GOAT. He’s WISE beyond his years and Manny is not. Floyd has gone on to defeat 5 Top 10 P4P opponents in his last 7 Fights which will never be matched. By comparison Manny is 1-2 in his last 3 Fights vs Top 10 P4P competition with one LOSS by knockout.

Floyd’s life “A Fool and his Folly.” Floyd is without a doubt the most egotistical, full of himself person on earth. Smart boxing fans see this is an easy set up fight for Mayweather. Marcos Maidana really has nothing to offer except power, a good chin and wild power punches. He will make it an interesting fight for a few rounds and then he will get picked apart. The personalities and life styles are much more interesting than the fight itself. Mayweather has been consumed by fame and fortune and treats people like he owns them. The hangers on just play the part so that they won’t be kicked out of his circle. You have to kiss Mayweather’s butt to be in it. Miss Jones said forget this, she had her own opinion and now she’s gone. The car dealers play their part perfectly and massage Mayweather’s ego in order to make their sell. Mayweather even buys those little kids that box by paying them off with money. He loves to show off and brag about his luxuries, money, materials and has to control everything. It’s really sad to see what money and fame can do to a person. On the other hand, we have Marcos Maidana. A humble man that does not care about all the fame and everything that comes with it. He doesn’t search for publicity and prefers not to be the center of attention. This is humility, which should be valued by everyone. His country loves him for who he is. This is a fighter that is in awe of seeing himself on a poster. His motivation is solely his own family. Marcos Maidana has not been enslaved and corrupted by fame and fortune like Floyd Mayweather has. This fight will pit the Good Guy, Marcos Maidana vs the Bad Guy, Floyd Mayweather. Will this fight be competitive? Yes, for 1-3 rounds, and then Maidana will take a beating before being stopped in the later rounds. I’ll be pulling for the Good Guy to pull off the upset. Boxing and the world needs more people like Marcos Maidana. Floyd Mayweather will notch up another win on his padded record, and will continue to avoid the fight that should have happened 6-7 years ago. The MEGA Fight everyone was excited to see. Yes, Manny Pacquiao, the best fighter in the history of boxing will continue to be avoided by Floyd Mayweather. Mayweather will never escape the tag of being scared to fight Manny Pacquiao. The time for that fight is gone forever. Floyd’s legacy of avoiding the best of his time in their prime will follow him throughout his career. Let’s hope that Maidana can find a way somehow to pull of the miracle upset like Buster Douglass did against Mike Tyson. Maidana’s chances are slim and none, but you just never know.

The FIGHT everyone has ALWAYS wanted is Floyd vs Pac, however this fight even IF it were to happen now, its not the same as it would have been 5 years ago. Boxing has changed so much over the years. The Best don’t even fight each other. They even vacate the belts to avoid fighting the contenders. In the 70′s & 80′s there were alway big fights happening. The BIG fights today are handpicked so the Champs look good against whoever they are fighting. So if Floyd vs Pac happened today, no matter who won the question WILL always be what would the result have been 5 years ago when they were both at their peak. So boxing will always be tainted with this question. A real disgrace considering the amount of money they all make today compared to the older fighters who fought because it was expected of them. It’s boxing if you don’t want to fight all challengers then why did you decide to be a boxer in the first place? We the fans are stuck with what IF questions. Anyway, let me tune in to ESPN Classics to watch some REAL fighters.

He does control his career; that’s why HE PROMOTES HIMSELF. And as far as all this nonsense about how he carries himself; I judge him by what he does in the ring. @Peej; all he can do is fight who is in his era. I could care less about judging what he would have done in this or that era. I’m sure even those in that era got judged based on those who came before him. For folks to even be digging up fighters from the past just goes to show how good he is.

   Adviser: Malignaggi in Line for Mayweather w/Porter With win.

A win over Shawn Porter on Saturday night on Showtime would not only give Paulie Malignaggi a welterweight title belt — Malignaggi’s adviser also believes that such a victory would put Malignaggi into contention for a fight with Floyd Mayweather.

“We are not looking past Porter tomorrow night. We know we have our hands full, but we know Paulie can deal with him cerebrally, stylistically and physically,” Anthony Catanzaro told BoxingS. Com on Friday in Washington, D.C. “But I feel looking at the landscape of the welterweight division, a win against Shawn Porter for Paulie’s third world title and second in the welterweight weight class, we have to be mentioned as far as the Mayweather sweepstakes are concerned.

“Paulie’s still one of the biggest names out there. He brings a lot more to the table than the average fighter, commercially. We sell tickets. He makes for good TV. He’s still a world-class fighter after all these years, and that’s a testament to his boxing skills, boxing IQ and internal fortitude and character,” Catanzaro said.

The next question turned to the marketability of such a bout, given that Mayweather’s opponents need to be sold as posing a threat to the undefeated champion.

“Floyd hasn’t been in the ring in a while with a guy who can pose tactical problems for him in the ring,” Catanzaro responded. “With all due respect to the guys he’s fighting, guys want to bum rush and maul him. And if you don’t have the foot speed, which we saw in the Canelo [Alvarez] fight, you’re basically tailor-made for him and will get picked apart. I do feel [Marcos] Maidana deserves the Mayweather fight, but I also feel that stylistically he falls right into the Mayweather game plan.”

Amir Khan to fight Luis Collazo on Floyd Mayweather’s undercard
Will Khan land a fight against Mayweather?

Former boxing world champion Amir Khan will fight American star Luis Collazo on the Floyd Mayweather vs Marcos Maidana undercard on 3 May. Perhaps Amir will feel hard done by, as he was promised a bout with Floyd on that date, and was betrayed, with Maidana taking his place. Floyd made a some what insulting offer to Khan, with regards to taking an exciting fight on his card, and if he wins, Floyd has promised to fight Khan. Khan has surprisingly accepted, so will the pair go head-to-head next?

Lik
Floyd is considered the best pound-for-pound boxer and Khan has never been one to dodge the best of the best. WBC welterweight champion Mayweather appears to enjoy toying with possible opponents, and this should inspire Khan, perhaps helping him in the long run.

Khan has a good reason to dislike Floyd, after he promised a fans’ poll would decide his next opponent, after Khan had signed his half of the contract. Khan won the fans’ poll, and Mayweather opted to go against the poll, angering both fans and Khan in the process.

Khan has previously beaten Maidana, and will feel if he can steal the show on Mayweather’s card that he will have no choice but to fight him in a sensational showdown. After his disappointment Khan told everyone “Mayweather decided not to take the fight with me, probably because he thought I would be the first to take away his unbeaten record, and is now fighting somebody I’ve already beaten,” and he continued “I think the fight with Mayweather will happen one day but I’m not rushing and it will happen when I’m ready. ”

So it seems like Khan knows his day will come eventually, but until then he has a fight he must focus on. Would you like to see the exciting pair fight each other next?

Peej , just visit boxing scene, and here everyday, the former has more. Ew here it’s a bout what article the writer picks a d want to to be seen.
Both are in the articles history’s, Floyd directly said to khan be on my card and If you look good
We can fight. Why do you think khan on Floyd card. And paulie release the word a. Before the fight that his manager said that if he look good he might have a fight with Floyd up next.
So where could this new come from? Has to be GBP or Floyd ok that started this or Floyd would have said I didn’t say that. Logic.

And include Floyd ex that he just burned, and she left with nothing not even her
Pride, or khan who Floyd will say no even if you won you look terrible, and you get no fight with me.
looking good is in the eyes of the beholder. Khan is foolish and will soon find out he been used again. Helping ppv Floyd sales.

Sorry bro but this fight needs no promoting. If the fight was made today for this weekend it would still do record numbers. So that is bogus. And lets see the highest sell out for money was 14 mil by Floyd or something close to that. That is not gonna pay for very much of somones purse especially if Floyd is fighting. Most of the purse money is coming from PPV sells. Not very much money from the ticket sells are going towards the fighters purse.

Posted April 20, 2014 4:53 pm

Floyd insist on having it at MGM. So arum said we could build tents maybe, he said it would take more that a month just to promo the fight, a fight this big there is no rush and should build it slowly with tours and fighter sparing etx, then in 1/2 year they fight, then the sales are huge.

But Floyd was in a rush, but as I said never trust Floyd, they promis paulie a fight if he look good and he promise khan the secounds time a fight if he look good. Only fool trust Floyd.
Even 50 cent said the problem with Floyd is he look at the other fighter cash in negotiation and that affect his yes or no. He said he can’t work with Floyd as a promorer that way.

Posted April 20, 2014 4:22 pm

Peej, for Floyd maybe because he made most of the million. But arum seat cost up to 200 – 500 to 5 thousand a seat. Added they up , it’s call compounding vs 75 buck per ppv, even at 1 million ppv thatfar short of bring in 100million

But the sets are use to pay off the fighter purse and promoter, I belive only Floyd has a contract that he get all or most from ppv sales.

And even then GBP sell fight at movies theater at 7-10 buck in south america and mexico usa and there are ppv sales but at a lower cost vs. 75 buck reglar ppv.

Posted April 20, 2014 4:13 pm 


PEEJ

Your math is definitely off. The main money doesn’t come in from ticket sells. It comes from PPV sells. So then there would be enough money. And he said he would wired 20 million when he agreed and another 20 after the fight or when he signed the contract I am not too sure about that. And Arum said nothing about the stadium, he was talking about building a stadium in Vegas.

Posted April 20, 2014 4:02 pm 


Mike Tyson

I answer the 40 million question. And beause MGM hold 8 thousand no math can get you 40 million + 40 million =80 million in seats sales. Put of 8 thousand seats. Arum wanted Texas stadium where margatito vs PAC got around 83 thousand seat sold plus ppv sales.
Arum offer 50 million each and ppv share, now the math is right and sound possible ,
So Floyd was going to con PAC and give him just 25+ million at the end and say take or leave it. As about 50+ million is more likely what a fight at MGM would bring in .

Posted April 20, 2014 3:37 pm 


PEEJ

That was never gonna happen. If he was serious about making the fight then why doesn’t he try to make the fight instead of saying the phone line is open? Floyd said he will never work with Arum and Roach has done an interview stating he sees no reason why Arum wouldn’t step aside so they can make this fight happen. So why doesn’t that happen? I could care less about all the talking. Apparently Floyd didn’t want to be Pacs way out of his tax issues. But if the money was not an issue then why didn’t he take the 40 mil? If Arum wasn’t the issue then why did he come out with excuses saying 3 or 4 months was not enough time to promote the fight or why did he say there needed to be an out door stadium built? Fact is if the promoter doesn’t want it to happen then it won’t.

Peej , Floyd was making fun of manny about 8 times on twitter, and a few last ones was about PAC only need him for the money. Right?

So what did PAC do? He said to Floyd so let fight and no I don’t want your money we give both our share to charity instead ? Everyone said that stupid, but from PAC point of view that not stupid?
Why? Because you can deduct 100% off back taxes from money given to charity, and the extra can be carried over into the new year,
It’s the same as deduction you can claim extra defendants as this is just a estimate of withholding from your employer. but What dependants you claim in taxes at end has to be exact. Or your cheating it’s you can have more per paycheck but don’t get a tax money returned.
So it’s was a legit proposal to Floyd for a fight of paying off back taxes and maybe have next years having a few million in taxes in credit.

Floyd stopped making fun of PAC, and stop his posting, even this year fight, Floyd did Not say one word to upstage it.

Does not matter what Pac said. Though I do remember Pac on FirstTake on ESPN and when asked if he wanted to fight Floyd, before answering the question he had to put his dark shaded glasses on to answer yes. That speaks volume. Meaning he didn’t want people to see what his eyes said. And on top of that you can’t fight a fight unless your promoter wants to make it happen. In this case Arum does not want the fight to happen, if he did he wouldn’t of come out with his outlandish excuses that he has said.

MANILA – Manny Pacquiao is open to taking Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s call and he even showed he has the telephone to prove it.

During his appearance on FOX 1’s “Crowd Goes Wild”, Pacquiao took a jab at Mayweather for consistently refusing the mega bout.

“I’m kind of tired answering the fans’ questions. I want that fight to happen because that’s what the fans want,” said the Filipino superstar, who is promoting his rematch against WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley Jr.

“All I can say is you know….,” then Pacquiao brought out an old rotary phone to the crowd’s delight. “My line is open 24 hours, 7 days a week. Anytime he can call me and say, yes [to the fight]… And the fight will be on.”

The stunt sent the predominantly Filipino-American crowd laughing.

He also assured Mayweather that the call will be “collect” or free of charge.

Pacquiao also talked about Bradley’s claim that his time “has already passed.”

“I said no… my time is not yet done,” said the Filipino boxer.

Pacquiao lost a controversial decision to Bradley in 2012, and this cost him the WBO welterweight crown.

The Filipino icon is hoping to straighten out the issue when he takes on Bradley again on April 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Just pick up the phone, says Manny Pacquiao.

As everybody knows, arranging a fight between Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather is much more difficult than that, but the Filipino boxer repeated his claim that he’s ready to face off during an appearance on ESPN.

“I want the fight, but it is up to him,” Pacquiao told Keith Olbermann. “What I can say now is that our line is open, 24 hours, seven days a week. If he will call and say yes, then the fight will be on.”

Pacquiao’s appearance on Olbermann’s self-titled show was part of the promotion for his next fight, April 12 against Timothy Bradley Jr. in Las Vegas.

Bradley won a controversial decision against Pacquiao in 2012.

Who cares how much money Gayweather has but=ying cars and bags as if its going out of fashion he cant be the best fighter of his era or generation until he fights Pac and Pac will knock the gay 1 clean out.

Come on All you have to do is survive the ko, and maidana right hand lobbing hook. Surely you can out point maidana, paulie did, khan did, top dog of GBP should, unless he a broner and looked too far aher and claim a ko over maidana. And became the laughing stock of boxing. And now he even challenge PAC for a fight. proof he brain dead.

See you are going off of what someone has written and clearly stated it was a rumor. It is hard to believe someone has hid something like that because they could get paid some hefty cash for some real proof about Floyd failing test. Fortunately for Floyd he is constantly doing the extra drug testing. And for the record I have never stated Pac was dirty. I have always maintained he was clean and was a beast. I only talk about what has been said. Sorry I sound nothing like Hecdog. It doesn’t bother me that someone says anything about Floyd. But I am still gonna post what the fact is and not what someone is trying to make up.

Floyds legacy is set. Its unfortunate that Arum didn’t want to let Pac near Floyd but Floyd would of make easy work of him anyways like he does most foes. Haters are always gonna hate. Floyd is the greatest fighter of his generation.

Bears – Agreed. This is a terrible matchup. And then a fight versus Khan? If as expected, Martinez beats Cotto, fight Martinez at 154. Then fight Pac. BE the greatest. Don’t just talk about it. Fight other champions in their prime. Floyd is a great fighter. I just wish he sought true greatness.

Mismatch from day one it was annouched. Flat footed and slow Maidana will not be a much of a threat after 2nd once May figures him out fully. Maidana does have power, but his only chance is to surprise him before May gets into his element in 2nd and on, basically come all out swinging in the 1st hoping to catch him with his powerful yet painfully slow punches, utterly tiny chance acheiving that. With May countering all night wild and slow swinging Maidana will proably gas out in the mid and there could be a late TKO in the making for Mayweather with accumulation of punches thrown on fully exhausted opponent.

Floyd will shoot himself before the age of 50.

Floyd is the absolute bottom offering our country has for a human being. He says he sleeps with baddest women? Hardly those hookers and ringers couldn’t compare to the naturally fine and educated women walking college campuses they’d laugh at Floyd soon as he started talking the illiterate fool. Money doesn’t buy class or education. At the end of it all Floyd will be in and out of jail eating Burger King trying not to lose all his money and the rest of us will be at Ruth’s Chris showing the nicer points in life to out families.

Floyd broke his engagement because she had and opinion of her own. He says he’s been rich for 20 years so she shouldn’t have a thought of her own about Hollywood life. He spends an hour with his kids in a hotel room mostly on his phone. All the money in the world couldn’t get me to trade in my kush suburban life for that trailer trash life. All he knows about his kids is where they live not their school or friends names, what a waste of so many lives his money has created.
