Power and KOing guys is not Floyd he is a pure boxer he is not stupid enough to go toe to toe with anyone much less Manny like Bradley did, counters over hand rights uppercuts. No one can match him not even Manny who got KTFO by Marquez. Maidana will be another victim problem is Floyd is too smart for these fighters you can catch him much less rough him up….

The author is talking about the Hatton fight, well Joe Cortez wouldn’t let Ricky fight on the inside and was constantly in the middle of the 2 while they were infighting. I’m not saying Hatton would have won but Maidana needs a fair ref (No Joe Cortez Clone) to allow him to fight while hes being tied up or has his hands free in a clinch. I doubt this will happen but to me this is Maidanas only chance

Floyd Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez: Canelo weighs 166.8 for WBC 30-day weigh-in
By Kory Kitchen  @KoryKitchen32 on Aug 14 2013, 4:25p 34

Mike Stobe
Canelo Alvarez weighed in at 166.8 pounds for the WBC’s mandatory 30-day weigh-in. In other words, there’s another 15 pounds to go. Floyd 150.3

With the Floyd Mayweather – Canelo Alvarez mega event only a month away (time has flown, huh?), the WBC held it’s mandatory 30-day out weigh-in for the fighters. Naturally, when it comes to the weight, all eyes are on Canelo who will have to shed a pound and a half more than what he was for the Austin Trout fight in order to make the 152 pound catchweight. It will require Alvarez to be at the lowest weight he has been since he faced Matthew Hatton in November of 2011.

Miguel Rivera is reporting that Canelo was under the maximum allowed, 169, and weighed in at 166.8. For perspective, this is roughly the same he was when he weighed 166.5 for 30-day weigh-in for the Trout fight. If we do the math (and I hate math, for the record) Canelo needs to drop another 14.8 pounds over the next 30 days. That’s about one pound for every two days, on average.

Mayweather should be fighting at 154, he just wants every lil advantage he can get, which is fair enough I suppose he dont owe the other fighters sh!t, but for legacy he never seems to put it on the line.

. . . and by choice I mean that the increased risk of bigger paydays v. bigger fighters didn’t discourage Floyd from planting his flag at 147lbs. not to mention promotional $pectacle$ v. the best 154lbrs.

Posted April 19, 2014 3:40 am 


te tumbo

“He’s no 140 pounder” WTF have I been posting? that Floyd IS a 147lbr by choice even though he could’ve just as easily established himself at 140lbs IF that’s where the bigger paydays were concentrated. whether he will ever move to 140bs at this point is moot because the 147lb-Mayweather is the ultimate destination in the welter division.

te tumbo…, “Floyd easily could and would make 140lbs”

No he couldn’t… Floyd paid a 600,000 dollar fine because he couldn’t come in an ounce below 146.

Floyd is so hard ripped and solid at 147 that you can barely stick a pin into him without bending it. He’s no 140 pounder.

Floyd will never beat Manny at any weight and venue, even at floyds backyard. You know why? Coz they will never fight, that’s why.

Posted April 19, 2014 2:27 am 


te tumbo

“50 million to fight who at 140?” the topic was whether (as i maintain) 147lbs was a standing concession by Floyd to accommodate bigger fighters and paydays. otherwise, he easily could and would make 140lbs if the biggest paydays were concentrated there without compromising his dominance one bit. in fact, he would simply be more dominant because he would naturally rehydrate to 147lbs overnight to defeat a smaller welter on fight-night. others think that 140lbs would be a compromising stretch(?) for Floyd. I think not.

Posted April 19, 2014 1:34 am 


TARK

Why would Maidana worry about Mayweather’s power??? Floyd fought most of his career fight at 130… Floyd’s not going to have enough power to blow him away.

What he should be worrying about is Floyd’s boxing mastery. That’s what’s going to beat him … Like Danny Garcia say when everybody was picking Lucas Matthysse to stretch him, “A lot of guys can hit real hard.”

Posted April 19, 2014 1:22 am

All the talk of 140lbs is cause pacman said he feels better at 140lbs and roach said he wants him to move down cause he to small for welterweights and really he is but no way arum lets him go down. A fight with Floyd is more competitive at 140lbs.

Tumbo, there wasn’t a lot of skepticism about Floyd going at 147, other than he’s pretty short at a weight division that was traditionally dominated by guys 5-10 and taller. He’s done the weight gaining proper: ’96 Olympic Trials at 126, pro at 130, then 135, 140 and finally at 147 over the course of a decade. No jumping around divisions shrinking and growing just to get a big fight. Even when he went at 154 he avoided gaining dead weight and weighed in below the limit. This has helped his longevity. If he tried shrinking down to 140 it would damage him and vaporize his strength. These guys who screw with their weights are doing so for short term gains at the expense of longevity. It takes a bad toll on the body. That’s why Floyd is firmly a welterweight and giving up nothing at this weight. Going at 140 would handicap him by depleting strength and endurance.

When Oscar dropped from 154 to 147 late in his career what happened? Got depleted and manhandled by Pac. Same would happen to Floyd. You underestimate the impact weight draining has especially on older fighters.

Posted April 18, 2014 5:42 pm 


te tumbo

126, 130, 135, 140, and finally 147lbs does not in any way indicate or presuppose that a fully-hydrated 147lb-Floyd would experience any difficulty making a 140lb weigh-in. in fact, plop a $50 million challenge on the table and Floyd will be at 140lbs by the time the contracts are actually signed. shedding 7lbs would only mean a faster, speedier, and proportionately stronger Mayweather for an opponent to deal with.

Posted April 18, 2014 3:19 pm 


te tumbo

“no way in hell in traditional or non traditional standards is Floyd ever making 140lbs”. He Doesn’t Have Too. Mayweather doesn’t need any rehydration advantage. he HAS no rehydration advantage. he typically carries a fight-night weight of 150lbs into the ring (if that) and dominates opponents no matter how much more they weigh on fight-night. Btw, Mayweather was coming off of a long layoff for the Marquez fight and less than a finely-tuned fighting machine but he didn’t need to be. Marquez is too small to effectively campaign at 147lbs.

Posted April 18, 2014 3:16 pm 


Fight Aficionado

Floyd hasn’t made 140 in a decade so I don’t believe he can. He’s never been one to dry up to make a lower weight and if he started doing that now he’d be depleted. He’s conceding nothing going at 147, it’s his natural weight division.

Posted April 18, 2014 3:14 pm

Yet Floyd couldn’t make weight against Marquez, no way in hell in traditional or non traditional standards is Floyd ever making 140lbs.

Posted April 18, 2014 3:05 pm 


te tumbo

“how so?” because by traditional standards a fighter rehydrates anywhere from 5lbs-15lbs after the weigh-in. Floyd’s preferred fight-night weight has been between 146lbs and 150lbs. anybody with a fight-night weight in that range can easily make a 140lb weigh-in IF it was necessary. for Mayweather, it’s simply not necessary. his superior skills-set and ring-smarts make up for any potential weight disadvantage v. any welter or jr-middle carrying a anywhere from a 5lb-15lb weight advantage into the ring v. a 147lb-150lb Mayweather.

Posted April 18, 2014 2:39 pm

“147lbs is already a standing concession by Floyd. 140lbs is optimal by traditional standards.” – How so? Floyd hasn’t fought at 140 in a decade while Maidana is the one who recently moved up in weight.

Posted April 18, 2014 2:05 pm

Floyd’s not a big puncher nowadays but he does have beautiful counter punches. So Maidana needs to come out blasting punches but he can’t just ignore Floyd’s power. I think he’s smart enough to realize that.

There is no way Void can lose a fight in Vegas, it’s impossible. Void has his judges, his personal referee to protect him whenever he needs it, and Void also has his boxing commission. A judge is afraid to score a fight against Void. They will do what Void demands…………I remember when Cortez would not allow Hatton to fight on the inside, then took a point away from Hatton for accidently hitting a ring rope! When was that a foul? I think boxing fans are starting to wise up on chicken Void. Void takes huge amounts of money from boxing fans, but will not fight Pac, the fight the fans want to see.

Miadana is good but he is slow he has a punchers chance at best like the rest of the guys. Bradley is no Floyd nowhere close skillwise.

147lbs is already a standing concession by Floyd. 140lbs is optimal by traditional standards. Floyd can’t even bulk-up beyond 150lbs for his bouts v. top-notch 154lbrs. i can’t recall another elite fighter that so many objected to retiring undefeated.

““I’m not worried, I’ve been hit by big punchers it doesn’t matter” is a fundamental misread of the potency in Floyd’s punches. Mayweather is not a “big” puncher, he’s a sharp and precise puncher who nails opponents with punches they simply don’t expect or see coming. i see Mayweather picking and placing his shots between Maidana’s guard, catching him in mid-punch, disrupting his rhythm, and countering “Chino’s” punches with unerring precision. moreover and overall, Floyd is the strongest welter out there. expert at tangling arms and draining opponents with timely clinches. i’d like to favor Maidana since there is no doubt that he will go-for-broke and leave no glove unturned to score the KO but there’s just no common sense in betting against “Money”.

Madina will be hit with wicked head snapping shots. He will stand there an his head will look like a PEZ candy despenser. We will become clueless after floyd opens up on his ass. I was front row when broner an madina fought. Madina can crack. He knocked what looked like broner’s tooth in one series. He hits with bad intentions. But his foot work will be his problem. He will stand there. Madina is simple. But he has a jab which looks like a body shot and it forces the opponent to flintch low but the shot finishes as a shot to the mouth or jaw. Good fight for fans.

I love Marcos Maidana and I wish him all the best in this fight but the reality is the same for him as it has been for all other Mayweather foes. You have to be able to find him in order to “catch” him with that big shot and it’s just not going to happen. He’ll punch air all night and receive a fat lip for his efforts. If he shocks the world and pulls off the upset great but that’s pure fantasy until it isn’t.
