If Mayweather will finally fight a young strong athletic African American which he NEVER does he WILL lose…Mayweather ONLY fights slow one dimensional fighters of a certain race and that is a FACT….and you people that say Thurman don’t have a chance against Mayweather….how do you know what this kid can and cant do…I tell you what he CAN do and thats beat guys up…..EVERYONE that has been put in front of him hes handled EASILY this kid very well could dethrone the king if given the shot!

Adrian.., If Floyd fights Khan I’m not watching… That’s a sparring session between a master and a punching bag.

I want to see Floyd fight somebody who can BOX!!! Lara… Pacquiao… Porter… Thurman.. ANYBODY with surpassing boxing skills … I’m tired of watching him fight guys who can’t box and get caught with everything.

Ortiz… Guerrero… Hatton… Maidana… not really interested.

I want to see a contest.

Tark , well I am telling you not In a. ” million years ” mayweather fights khan mark my words ! And as for porter he will be easier then Maidana , the guy fought only two legit contenders so far in Diaz who he drew for god sakes and Alexander that’s all, I hope he faces Thurman and will see how good porter really is !

Adrian.., “I am not saying mayweather would lose but he knows he would struggle to dominate khan.”

I have to completely disagree Adrian.., I don’t see that happening in a million years. I see Mayweather dominating Khan completely and knocking him out within 7 rounds.

Floyd is not Judah, Kotelnik, or Malignaggi…let’s get real. And yes, those guys can’t punch very hard … and can’t attack at all.

Floyd however can punch hard against this caliber of fighter—and he can attack very well too… Khan was made to order for Floyd to look like a genius against.

The guys who would be super tough for Floyd are Lara, Porter, and Pacquiao … Thurman too, but not as much.

isn’t it strange when he said that he wants to safeguard his health? real fighters go inside the ring with the do or die mentality… i’m not against the health and welfare of the boxers but if you think of it, he hasn’t engaged himself in toe to toe wars to be really concerned about health… the WWE has taught him that an entertainer’s health wouldn’t be compromised in a staged event… people will still watch and there’s money to be made… so why accept real challenges when we can do inhouse and stage everything… everyone wins! from the fighter to the promoter to the adviser!

Tark, of course I watched those fights you mentioned but Diaz is no mayweather , khan fairs very well against pure boxers like Judah that khan stopped or kotelnik that khan beat or malinagi that khan stopped but struggles against pressure boxers that can take a punch … I am not saying mayweather would lose but he knows he would struggle to dominate khan I guarantee you that and to look bad against a boxer like khan that would be a disaster for him and that’s why he will never fight him.

Adrian.., Actually I always said the 3 guys Floyd will NOT fight are Lara… Porter… and Pacquiao.

Thurman would be anothe big risk fight for Floyd.

If you think Khan would give Floyd any trouble at all please watch Khan’s fight with 3rd rater Julio Diaz.. Diaz is a terrible fighter and he knocked Khan down and almost out. It was a touch-an-go fight for Khan at best.

Then watch Julio Diaz’s fight with Keith Thurman… Thurman hit Khan with everything but Khan couldn’t hit Thurman with anything… Diaz got beaten up and stopped in 3 rounds.

Beating an ESPN Fighter makes Thurman think that he knows how to beat Mayweather??? LMFAO. Guerrero and Ortiz had more credible WINS than Thurman has. Stop Robert Guerrero and then I’ll start listening.

Lmao!!!! Guerrero and Ortiz had more credible wins???? By beating berto??? HahAhahahahaha berto who got his ars handed to him by Thurman’s victim , Karas…
And yes as tark said I have always said this way before that there are 3 boxers that mayweather will never fight and those are

1.pac
2.thurman
3.khan

Those top two would beat mayweather and khan maybe not but i can guarantee you mayweather would look really bad against him so that’s the reason he will never fight him , mayweather don’t take a fight if he is not 100% sure he would win .
Only time he took a chance was against Oscar and in a lot of peoples eyes he lost that fight against a past his prime oscar!

“when he unifies with Canelo, is Floyd Mayweather.”-There is no unification to be made with Canelo because Floyd already took everything he had. Floyd only comes UP to JR MW MEGA Fights. Hopefully Lara can beat Canelo and transform himself into a MEGA STAR. That way he’ll be on Floyd’s radar to take the next SCHOOLING.

OK. SO Floyd works with GBP and Fights on Showtime SO GGG’s challenge wasn’t an actual challenge. It was said to get media promo by using the GOAT’s name.

Posted April 29, 2014 5:25 pm 


TARK

Good point Fight Aficionado… Lara’s offer to fght GGG wasn’t serious… He’s a world champion at 154 so his logical opponent, when he unifies with Canelo, is Floyd Mayweather.

GGG’s not going to fight any 154-pounder except Floyd… If he beats Chavez, he’ll try to get a fight with Martinez.. Then he can go after Ward if Quillin still doesn’t want to fight.

Beating 154-pounders doesn’t help Golovkin right now.

Lara is with GBP and Showtime so calling GGG out was not an actual challenge, it was said to create conversation and get media ink. And BTW I”ve been a Lara fan longer than anyone else at ESB.

“He’s small at 160 and in fact Floyd never once addressed his offer to fight at 154. Yet he had no problem going at Cotto and Canelo at 154. Why?”-Same reason that GGG never addressed Lara’s offer to Fight at ANY weight yet he had no problem going at Chavez Jr.

LOL didn’t ALL of Mayweather’s other opponents say they know how to beat him before they got their a$$es whooped??? You haters are too funny though… You’re so quick to build someone up acting like they can beat Mayweather…. Even though he hasn’t fought anyone above C- level. As soon as Mayweather does fight and whoops his ass, haters have all these excuses, He was too young, he wasn’t ready, Floyd had too much experience… It happens EVERY time…. 3 or 4 years ago most of you never even heard of Thurman. Now he knocks out a couple of bums you dummys saying Mayweather is scared of him.

I see a bunch of morons here. SOG will give GGG a boxing lesson. It won’t even be competitive at all. Ward kicked the crap out of Froch when everyone thought Carl stood a chance. GGG has done nothing let him fight the bum Chavez and then move up comp let him fight Groves regardless of the outcome of his next bout. Gennady shouldn’t put in the same sentence as Ward, boxing fans are just delusional.

“The point of saying Thurman needs a couple more fights is just to get him experience. Guerrero fought decent comp and had been in a few title fights. Same as Ortiz. Thurman has not. He has fought the gate keeper at 147 and he did good in that fight. But he needs to keep stepping it up. Beating the gate keeper means that you are probably good enough for a title. He needs better names on his resume. Saying nobody wants to fight him is weak. He just fought 2 good fighters in Chavez and Karass. Yeah he took on Diaz as a stay busy fight, nothing wrong with that. Yes we would of like someone better but that is who was available at this time. There is money in fighting him so he will get fights.”

Lmao!!! Peej (smith) you crack me up bro!l! So you say Guerrero fought champions at ww but Thurman ” gatekeepers”??? Really ??? Lmao !!
Guerrero one fight before mayweather was against berto and he struggled like mo fo and the same berto was ktfo by Karas the ” gatekeeper ” Thurman stopped !!!

Ward is available for GGG to fight… but it’s not the right time for GGG to fight him… If GGG smashes Chavez and Martinez the fight will be HUGE.

One of the dumbest things is doing a fight before it reaches maximum demand.

It would be perfect for Ward if Groves flattens Froch. Don’t expect it though.

PEEJ Ward is on the shelf due to injuries and his lawsuit. That is a fact. Stop putting words in GGG’s mouth. The only accuracy in your post is this is a one-time fight at 168 and GGG will remain a middleweight. He’s small at 160 and in fact Floyd never once addressed his offer to fight at 154. Yet he had no problem going at Cotto and Canelo at 154. Why?

Umm Canelo ‘destroying’ Thurman is a bit of an extreme idea don’t you think? Last time I checked, Canelo is a relatively flat footed fighter with enough stamina to only fight in spurts. That said, Thurman beating Floyd, at least at this point in his career, is a bit far fetched.

As for Thurman, he’s a prospect to face Floyd or any of the other welterweight titlists. He’s not beaten a top guy yet though so nobody should be calling for him vs Floyd. A better bout is Thurman vs Porter. Both are rising, and the winner would be considered the next big thing at 147. Do it.

Posted April 28, 2014 3:37 pm

“GGG called out Ward and Ward said ok. GGG has not mentioned his name since.” – Do your research before spreading nonsense. Ward is suing his promoter and has been inactive due to injury and the lawsuit. He only last week announced that he’d requested his promoter get him a fight. Meantime, while Ward was silent for months GGG went ahead with a bigger money fight vs Chavez Jr.

“Guerrero only had two fights at welterweight before taking on Floyd.” Hidalg0, Guerrero was a six-time and four-division world champion.

Thurman is a whole different story than Guerrero. He’s a big dude in comparison. I’d say he’s the better fighter in every department apart from experience. Still Guerrero won 3 rounds on each judge’s score card against Floyd. I say Thurman with a few more fights under his belt will do better,

Thurman is the real deal. No doubt about it. Shawn Porter is powerful and sometimes still looks a little green. Just a little. But his power and footwork makes up for his inexperience.

Keith Thurman, looks polished and ready. I do agree that he does need another big name or two, but his problem is that no one wants to fight him. So what is he to do. Make a lot of noise and force Maytwitter to take notice. Just like Guerrero, Ortiz, did. No one was clamoring for those fights at all…. But Floyd took em on anyway.

Thurman’s ready, but who will step up to the plate? Quillin?!?!? Nope, he’s a businessman. Porter, he may take the fight. Danny Jacobs, could be another taker. Broner?? Nah… Broner’s leagues behind Thurman.

Floyd never fought a slick,fast and skilled fighter since zab judah. Zab made floyd confused in their 1st half of d fight and even scored a clear knockdown which the paid ref ruled out as a slip..thanks to the poor conditioning and stamina as zab gassed out on d remainder of the fight that saved floyd for a total beatdown and humiliation. Since then floyd cherrypicks an opponents who are slow,come forward style,no head and body movement,flat footed,,poor footwork,inexperienced to make him look good..his undefeated record was padded with those type of fighter..maidana is easy to hit and will make him like a punching bag.put bradley in front of floyd and surely the latter will miss a lot of punches and will look like an amateur.this will never happen as floyd is allergic fighting slick,fast,tough and skilled fighter.
Posted April 28, 2014 8:34 am

He wasn’t confused. Remember, these two sparred each other so he knew full well what Zab was capable of and knew what he wasn’t. And Zab knew what to do against Floyd because he was around him.
Roy Jones swore that he would never fight a sparring partner because they get to know you.

Zab gassed out because Floyd was also hitting him to the body, then making him miss, making him think.

Did all the other opponents of Floyd show up in poor condition or did Floyd do the same to them? Timed body shots, well placed counters after they missed, etc.?

Pedro,

ZAB JUDAH LOST to Floyd plain and simple, even though you WANT to make it into some kind of MORAL victory for Judah. Judah MELTED DOWN he was on his way to being KO’D in the 10th round and FOULED Mayweather with an INTENTIONAL LOW BLOW followed by a RABBIT punch!! Judah LOST his WHOLE purse in that fight!! Mayweather went to a NEUTRAL corner and cooly waited everything out and BEAT Judah saying “I’m not letting the commission take my money”!

Floyd WILL BEAT Thurman and Porter LIKE they STOLE something!! All you Floyd HATERS are FOOLED by Thurman BEATING up an OLD Julio Diaz and before that a Neanderthal Jesus Soto-Karrass, so you think he’ll WHOOP Floyd? Same goes for Porter, he actually LOST the first bout he had against Julio Diaz, beat him in the REMATCH and then BEAT an OVERRATED Devon Alexander and next he beats ‘Floats like a Butterfly, Stings like a Butterfly’ Paulie Malignaggi, and the HATERS once AGAIN believe that gives Porter the ability to beat Floyd?

I like the Thurman/ Mayweather match-up but there are many other fights out there for him, Pacquio, Bradley, Khan, Porter, Maidana and later in his career Canelo, possibly with Broner at a catch weight and Danny Garcia.. Now, he should retire Austin Trout and get him out of the game. If Thurman continues to do what he’s been doing, he’ll be one wealthy guy when it’s all over for him. Lastly about the Mayweather / Maidana fight, i’m predicting a KO by Mayweather… Boxingdictionary.com “The Language of the Ring “

Posted April 28, 2014 2:18 am

Arum wants to promote everyone just like Richard does. It’s control. That’s why Arum, like King did in the past, has opponents sign a contract that he will be their promoter for a certain amount of fights in order to fight his guy…like Pac vs. Bradley.

Richard, like Floyd, do not want Arum to be involved in the promotion because he is not needed. They can do the job by themselves. Floyd’s name sells itself so why even bother giving a percentage to Arum when he is not needed?
You wouldn’t either.

boxing fighters  are being rearrange in ranking , the boxers are slowly lose the war to the slugger/ boxer the hybrids.

First was khan a boxer taken out by Garcia a slugger/ boxer.

Next alexander A boxer, yes did totally beat maidana to a U.D decision. But Porter a slugger/boxer push him out easily by slugging him out as did Bradley. A slugger/ boxer as is PAC. Two of the best slugger/ boxer around.

the next boxer to go was broner, who maidan a true slugger vs canelo (a boxer w/a-good punch) beat the heck out of him  

Next came paulie a true boxer, porter a slugger/ boxer nultralize paulie boxing skill, and slugg paulie and ran him over.

Next comes thurman another slugger/ boxer up against Dias a experienced counter puncher boxer.
Thurman’s get a tko, on a rib damage, 

Verdict? 5 boxer have bitten the dust. As I said slugger/boxer will rule, not slugger. unless your a slick boxer but still have to be proven.

Next up: Floyd vs maidana a b- rated slugger ( experienced and getting better, a true inside fighter/ multi unexpected timed cross lobbing over the top)

Axexander, khan, both  beat maidana on a UD decision, but Bradley, porter, slugger / boxer beat alexander the boxer up
So Floyd need a shut out, or a stoppage.  As he represent or is the last few good boxers left standing now. See, its best to be humbled Floyd,

The fighter who was made to order for Tszyu was Zab Judah… Tszyu loved southpaws like Mitchell and Judah who gave you plenty of room to punch.

Tszyu really hated clutching brawlers like Hatton who got in your face.

The only fight Hatton ever fought any differently was when Floyd Sr had Ricky and Floyd Sr wanted Paulie Malignaggi for him… “Rick, listen up…we’re going to box Malignaggi…got that?”

Two good posts by Adrian and TARK. I saw that as well and couldn’t believe what Bernstein was saying.

Right Adrian.., Funny thing is…Bernstein missed it in slo-mo as well. Is he blind or what?

Bernstein is not the worst. The worst I’ve ever seen is Harold Lederman.

When Floyd stumbled backwards in the 1st round versus Hatton, Lampley, Lederman, and Merchant assumed Hatton’s missed left hook caught Floyd on the chin. Floyd won the round super big – based on out-landing Hatton 21 to 5.. But Lederman gave the round to Hatton based on that missed punch.. In between rounds they showed the punch missing in slo-mo – and Lederman still didn’t get it right.. He still thought the punch landed.

Sometimes I wonder what the world looks like through the eyes of people like Lederman, Duane Ford, and C.J. Ross.

Tark , you are 100% correct in your last post! I am glad you noticed al Bernstein saying ” Thurman got hit by a left ” lol and in fact itwas Thurman who nailed him going backwards which they even replayed that action in a slow motion in between rounds which clearly showed that.

But that’s what I am also getting at why one division up can matter on the elite level as opposed to a lower level. Each division is filled with elites in the Pro ranks. Your fighting the best. GGG is elite at 160. Floyd is elite at 147, maybe at 154 too. But one division, specifically when you are already at your limit, can be big. Floyd can go from 130 to 135, 135 to 140, 140 to 147 and still compete but at some point even he will reach his limits. At 154, the only legit guy that had that massive size advantage was Canelo. the rest were guys that moved up in weight over the years including Cotto and Oscar.

Floyd schooled Canelo but GGG is a different level. He is bigger, smarter, more experienced, and more skilled and powerful than Canelo. He is the elite of that division.

That’s all I was saying.

Would I love to see it? YES. but I’m a fan and not Floyd. Hahaha

I was getting re-injured in sports that didn’t even require me to get hit in that area but it was just the generally contact/force that would re-injure it. I don’t think the tissue quite grew back the same. I don’t know. Or maybe since I didn’t have money for proper medical care beyond what I recieved I wasn’t going to build it back up properly like others who have had similar or the same injury have had…although I was still not an adult and they were. It might make a difference.

Either way, my stamina issues wasn’t ever going to be world class, my mental makeup although tough, I don’t think I was a die-hard nut like some of the guys that are World Class. A serious level of “purpose” and “belief” is required. I struggled with that in general without guidance. Good with guidance but lacked it without. I think you need it with or without.

Floyd will not engage Porter either. In fact, Floyd will not fight the current 147 titlists and will wiggle out of fighting his mandatory.

6lbs is the difference in weight class, not the difference in the weight of the fighters. Example: Floyd gave up 16lbs to Ortiz on fight night and 23lbs to Conelo on fight night. How much do you think he would be giving up to fighters that are dehydrating to 160? I would say 20-25lbs on average and about 2 to 4 inches in height. Floyd is now a natural WW. He is 150 or less on fight night. I think Thurman is a natural WW at the moment too being that he was 154 on fight night yesterday. He will end up at 160 before his career ends as his frame is bigger than most WW’s. The fact that they dont have to weight drain makes them alot stronger than opponents on fight night.
Posted April 27, 2014 10:34 pm

Canelo is actually the one fighter who stands out that Floyd fought that has the natural bone mass advantage. He could even weigh the same as someone else just below him but he would still be the naturally bigger man.

A Heavyweight bone structure is not the same as the variety of bone structures that are in the lower weight class as they have a wider variety. Also, you fighting guys 20 pounds heavier are of what experience/level?

GGG is World Class Champion in boxing and is a natural 160 pounder.

Are you doing the same?

Because Floyd spars guys that are much heavier and bigger.

I think GGG is good fighter, but gets a little to much credit. He is not a better boxer than Mayweather and he is not a better boxer than Ward. To even make an attempt to down grade Wards resume which consists of Froch, Keesler, Abraham, Dawson, Bika, Miranda, and a 24-0 Rodriguez is down right ignorant. The one and only skill he has over either of these fighters is power, which doesnt rule boxing. Especially when you are fighting someone you cant hit. Mayweathers opponenets land a mere 18% of their punches on average. I would give GGG a better chancee against Floyd than any other fighter south of 160 because of size and power being that he is 2 inches taller. Floyd has destroyed fighters with the same characteristics in the past though. Ward is taller, bigger, more skilled, and can fight in any way he needs to. The guy is the complete package. I understand why GGG camp is staying away from him at the moment. Give him a year or two.

Posted April 27, 2014 10:10 pm

Bodybuilding is not fighting. And 6 pounds of quality muscle, pure tissue muscle, is a lot. There is a difference between 6 pounds of tissue and bone mass compared to extra fluid and muscle.

again, we are talking about someone who was fighting at 130 pounds as an adult where he won a title and grew into over the years to 150 pounds… facing off against a “natural” 160 pounder (who weighs more than that come fight night).

Its not just about added weight but bone structure.

Floyd is tapped out at 150 pounds at his age. He adds weight, it can slow him down and hurt his stamina which are two key attributes he relies on.

And I’ll take the word of Pro Boxers who say that moving up divisions is extremely hard to do…especially when you already reached your limits.

Just listen to the recent interview with Hatton on his fight with Collazo.

6 pounds is a lot in boxing in the lower weight divisions. Especially one that started his career at 130 and weighs in at 150 tops on fight-night for his WW fights while the guy at 160, just 6 pounds by division weight “limit” standards, is more like 10-15 pounds more come fight-night night for that specific division. Which means, you can have a 150 pound guy facing off against a 170+ pound “natural” weight fighter.

“The guys at 160 dont want any of triple g thats why he is moving up to 168. I have to respectful disagree, i think triple g has a good chance against ward. Ward hasnt looked so great lately.”

I have to agree with that with exception of his win over Dawson. But I think we all know by now that “Sad” Chad was overrated for a long time. Sure, Ward is still undefeated and won the Super 6, but when I look at his resume… I see a handful of really good fighters, but no elite fighters. Ward has never fought a boxer-puncher as skilled, experienced and as brutally powerful as 3G. IMO…3G would give him fits for days and hit him harder than he’s ever been hit in his life.

I don’t know who would win, but it certainly would not be any easy night for Ward. More like the greatest challenge of his entire career.

This pundit says.., “Thurman didn’t say anything about what he’d do about his slow hand speed or the fact that he can’t fight going backwards.” LMFAO … WTF are you talking about?

Those are ignorant statements from a man who has no experience as a boxer or trainer on any level. Thurman showed he is VERY fast, and CAN fight going backwards. He show BOTH abilities last night.

Compare Amir Khan’s fight with Julio Diaz to Keith Thurman’s fight with Julio Diaz. After all, Khan is a guy Floyd talks about fighting, although Khan is a terrible candidate.

The fact is: Amir Khan had all kinds of problems with Julio Diaz. Khan got hit with everything, got sent to the floor hard. He only won because the fight was in England.

Thurman had ZERO problems with Diaz. He didn’t get hit with a good shot. He outpunched Diaz by a masterful margin. He was barely getting warmed up when Joel Diaz stopped the fight to save Diaz from getting badly battered and knocked out. It wasn’t good for fans who love to see a savage beating—but it was a brilliant move by Joel to save his brother.

Sometimes oblivious commentators, like Al Bernstein, miss what’s going on. Bernstein never had any direct involvement in Boxing. Berstein said, “Diaz landed a left hook there that sent Thurman on his bicycle.” If Al had a sharper and faster eye, he would have observed Thurman ducking that left hook and making it miss him completely. Thurman wasn’t on his “bicycle” — he wheeled to reposition himself after ducking a punch.

As far as Keith Thurman goes: he should have less flex in his knees, bring his guard in a tad closer, and box slightly taller. His stance is slightly exaggerated. He needs it to be tighter, more relaxed, and more responsive, so he can avoid punches with subtler moves. He’s going to fight guys who are a lot faster than Diaz or Soto Karass. Just because they couldn’t hit him doesn’t mean Floyd won’t.. But he’s one of the few who would give Floyd a good fight … even right now.

Thurman stands only a punchers chance against Floyd. Thats all thats it. If he cant land the one hitter quitter, he cant win. So he has to land a huge shot against arguably the best defensive fighter in the history of the sport. Floyd also has the highest +- ratio the sport has seen. Odds are not in Thurmans favor. I like Maidonas odds more simply because he is unpredictable and throws punches from all angles, but he only stands a punchers chance as well.
Posted April 27, 2014 8:16 pm

Floyd Patterson’s trainer Dan Florio noted that older fighters were more prone to wear down as the fight goes on. He was discussing this when talking about what advantage Rocky had over his opponents that were future HOF but past their best physically. He saw it first hand. It doesn’t always have to be age as much as wear and tear. Miles. Number Age doesn’t help either. It’s just more of an indicator of where you are at time wise.

High Pressure, the right pressure, smart pressure, with power, stamina, high mental ability as far as belief, some boxing skills to counter while fists are flying…”may” help sway odds in the younger fighters favor.

GGG isnt going up to 168 to stay. His camp already said they are not ready for Ward so that is not there playing field. Besides there are a number of guys at 160 that will solidify his dominanace.

I’m not a fan of Roach and his tactics of waiting for the right moment to put his fighters in with other fighters that look to be at a disadvantage for one reason or the other.

Thurman stands only a punchers chance against Floyd. Thats all thats it. If he cant land the one hitter quitter, he cant win. So he has to land a huge shot against arguably the best defensive fighter in the history of the sport. Floyd also has the highest +- ratio the sport has seen. Odds are not in Thurmans favor. I like Maidonas odds more simply because he is unpredictable and throws punches from all angles, but he only stands a punchers chance as well.

Dont waste your time on Floyd. Enjoy the lime light, get the attention you deserve. Put your “supreme knockout artistry” out there for all the boxing fans to see. Like Julio Diaz said after you cracked his ribs, “You gotta give space to these young cats now” Go through the fantastic welterweight division including Porter or Collazo. I noticed you 3 years ago and l knew you were destined for boxing superstar status!
Posted April 27, 2014 8:07 pm

That comes with Fighting Floyd. Those that want to be the best go after the best.

Floyd was great prior to Oscar but nobody knew it until Oscar. Oscar was the Golden Goose for everyone. He provided the HOF challenge, the Stardom, and the Financial gain needed to boost you from boxing fans appreciation to casual fan appreciation. That’s super-stardom. When you win the casual fans.

IMO… I don’t think 3G is going to stay at 168lbs and vacate his MW titles. I believe he’ll throw Chavez a beating, to the surprise of many, and will drop back down to MW. I’m pretty sure his goal is still to unify all the titles at 160, but he definitely wants to fight FMJ for the 154lbs titles.

MM: I’m with you mano — I’d definitely pay to see FMJ fight both of those guys. H3ll yeah! But I’m not gonna pay to see him outclass guys like Maidana and Khan.

Two naturally bigger men, two World Champions in their divisions, one at 160, the other at 168, favored over a WW Champion that is 37 years old, declining, and weighs 150 on fight-night….YEAH, one should realistically favor those two men over the smaller one. Not that Sergio is still young either or prime/healthy. But….its funny how we have to push Floyd up weight divisions to get him beat.

“Unless your triple g or pac there really isnt a fighter or blueprint to beat floyd. Those are the only 2 guys i can see beating floyd!”

muderman: I agree those are the two guys who’d have the best chance at beating FMJ. PacMan might have been able to take him back in ’09/10, but it looks like he’s declined a bit. Now, I think FMJ would have the edge, but it would still be a legendary fight and the world definitely deserves to see it.

I do believe that 3G can beat FMJ at 154lbs. 3G cuts the ring off better than anyone I’ve ever seen, so would catch him at least a few times. And his power is so explosive that FMJ would get floored or KO’d. Don’t you think FMJ needs to do the whole boxing world, and all fight fans, a big favor and do everything in his power to fight both of those guys?

NO, there is no reason for Floyd to have to fight a Middleweight Champion of the World just so that he is in a fight that he is clearly outmatched by size, strength, youth, power…mixed with high I.Q. skill and experience of GGG. It’s one thing to take some of those qualities and fight against it because Floyd has…but the combination is just to much to ask a 37 year old declining fighter who weighs in about 150 on fight night.

PAC fight however should come off but that’s not just up to Floyd. It’s up to Pac, Arum and Richie to get that fight made.

Not now. There was a time I had it 55% 45% in favour of Floyd v manny now it’s more like 65% 35% 4 me. Manny wouldn’t unleash as many punchers v Floyd as 2 his norm, he’d cop 2 much damage. Manny isn’t what he was….still awesome just hasn’t got the momentum and stamina he once had…& none of them could out box him. Only thing that will beat Floyd is Father Time.

There is always a chance. Especially with a young, hungry, energetic, powerful, decent skilled boxer/fighter like Thurman to beat an aging savvy veteran like Floyd. It has happened in the past and it can happen again.

Are the odds in his favor? NOT REALLY. But Floyd does need opponents and Thurman does want to be tested to the highest level. And if the fans want it, why not.

He isn’t going to go in there and try to outbox Floyd. He will use his developing boxing skills to enable him to land his POWER on Floyd.

FMJ will never fight Thurman. Maybe Porter, but not Thurman. I can almost guarantee it. “One Time” has too much power and speed for FMJ to take that fight. It would be too much of a risk to his precious “O”. FMJ knows that if Thurman catches him with one clean, hard shot, he’ll lose via KO or stoppage.

Why take LEGIT risks when he can make ungodly amounts of money taking walk-in-the-park guaranteed wins against Maidana, Khan, Guerrero, Ortiz, Baldomir, Judah, Mitchell, Gatti; little Jr. WWs like Hatton and JMM; and washed up past-prime fighters like Mosely, Cotto and ODLH.

If Oscar really is making peace with Bob Arum, it would add credence to the rumours that Richard Schaefer is thinking of breaking away with Al Haymon. I heard this a couple of weeks ago. Haymon has been real busy recently, signing Khan, Guerrero, Collazo and many others and waiting to see what’s up with Mikey Garcia and his contract. They will have their own stable, possibly bigger than GBP if and when it does indeed break up.

My point is this, Floyd has made offers, whether fair or not is up for debate. Arum has made no offers. Arums reason for declining offers was building a stadium, not enough time to promote the fight, like the fight really needs promoting, Floyd was going to jail in June which ment the fight couldn’t happen in May. Keep in mind he then turned to Cotto and fought him. So sorry but Arum comes up with some lame excuses. I see why Floyd doesn’t want to work with him. Pac said my line is always open, well Floyd tried that line and got denied and there was no counter offer.

I know Martinez says he can make 154 but he is contradicting himself. The rematch between him and Williams is proof. Williams wanted it at 154 and he said no he couldn’t make 154. He would need to cut off a limb to make 154. Also said that if Cotto or Kirkland wanted to fight him it would have to be at 160. Why is that? They are both 154lb fighters and moving up would not be good for them. At least in my opinion. Floyd said he is not a Jr Middle and only fought the fights at 154 because he felt he had better skills than them. 160 is pushing it especially when you only weight 150 at the weight in and under 147 the day of the fight like he said he did when he fought Canelo. GGG has never made 154. Even as an amateur he fought above 154.

GGG shouldn’t be mentioned, especially since his next fight is taking place at 168. Garcia has already stated he is not looking to fight Floyd right now so putting him in there shouldn’t be done either. Martinez can’t make 154 so unless Floyd is talking about moving to 160 which he has already said no to, so Martinez shouldn’t be in there. Bradley was the most deserving fighter till he lost to Pac. Now that honors gos to Maidana. Floyd is fighting someone that plenty of people said he would never fight especially after what he did to Broner. But now that he has people have changed their tune saying he is cherry picked. Same happened when he fought Canelo. I think Lara is gonna lose to Canelo so that will take him out the picture also. Pac and Bradley have the same promoter and Arum doesn’t want his fighters near Floyd. After last night I am not sure Matthysse can beat any elite fighter.

You mean belt holder. Not champion. Lara is not elite and trout was not elite. In my gym you gotta put up or shut up. Floyd calls bradley and pac amatuers but wont fight them.

I don’t know what it is with some fighters. Thurman needs to stop running his mouth like he’s actually done something in boxing. He has yet to beat one guy that we can say was good. Beating a light weight that was past his best years proved nothing. What happened to the humble Thurman I once saw? Now he says he knows how to beat Mayweather? Here we go again, fame getting to this guy’s head. He was almost out against Soto Karasss even Diaz caught him once and he looked shook up for a second. His defense is seriously suspect, and his chin has questions. and he still hasn’t fought any of the top guys. He was even saying in a non direct way that he could handle Shawn Porter. Thurman has some power, but the rest of his game is suspect. He needs to step up and get tested before he starts becoming too full of himself. My prediction for Thurman is that he will have no stamina, can’t take a punch and won’t be as good as he thinks he is. Looking at his current record tells me has fought no one. Broner was doing well with his undefeated record, and I thought he was the real deal until Maidana exposed him. Thurman will IMO end up the same as Broner. As a matter of fact, I think that would be a great match up. Broner vs Thurman.

Floyd had better turn down his pride ego a bit, calling Bradley and PAC amatures, who have won the top position fight by fight and saying he can’t fight them is offensive and rude.
They are PAC, Bradley, porter, Thurman, Martinez,GGG , Lara, Matthysse, Garcia, all could beat him.he has to prove not.”
He should be only talking about his ownself in interviews if ask about a fight say it was a good fight Say congrad, as all fighter does to him . Then he can talk about “I am the greatest fight in this era” junk as most think he is just a lunatic bragger Anyway,

Nobody said Canelo is an elite fighter but if he beats Lara that will make him a 2 time world champion at Jr. Middle. Not 1 time but 2 time world champion. C and B level fighters don’t win 2 championships nor do they win 1.

When he fought Ortiz and before that when he fought Hatton. Who cares when his last KO. And no Maidana is not a C level fighter. He is at least a B level fighter. C level is like a gate keeper and Maidana is no gate keeper

Also what elite fighter did canelo beat?

Maidana is c level fighter. Plus floyd wont fight thurman. When was floyds last ko?

Ill take Floyd by stoppage around the 10th or before. Maidana is no C rated fighter and neither is Canelo. Thurman I think will be ready next year. He needs a little more polishing then he will be ready.

“It’s also quite possible Golden Boy Promotions will have Thurman jump through at least one more hoop before getting him the fight by matching him against the likes of Amir Khan,” Oh, Please. The likes of Amir Khan? The likes of Amir Khan? Is this the famous chicken dance Amir Khan? And if so, then why even bother to mention his name let alone group him with the other fighters?

Mayweather is close to retirement, because he’s getting gray hairs every day. I only train for Floyd Mayweather, and that’s why these boys don’t stand up to me.”

HA……. Thurman’s crack me up. Watch as maidana fighting floyd has a mixtures of unpredictable body and lobbing punches, estimated where he be next That would have floyd guessing,

Floyd has to score a U.D if he has a hard fight his stock fall, 3 C rated fight beat maidana 2 alexander and khan did so in a UD. Can Floyd convinclly stop maidana?
