This is just a stunt to hype up the fight. Mayweather is not scared of Maidana, there is a big speed difference not only in hand speed but head movement. Maidana won’t even scratch Mayweather. Mayweather UD. Another boring fight.

Just show we’re Floyd mind at the moment. He fear maidana, I taught I was the only one who knew maidana fist was large in the weight in. After Floyd said chino fist was 3″ larger. HA…. Floyd under pressure to get a easy UD. Not going to be that easy Floyd, this boys exchanges and dont go into holding or fear your jab or he throw combo punches going in That can conect as you throw your counter punch.

It’s going to take away Floyd counter punch he have to fight chino the same way he fought JMM.
But chino will chase Floyd after throw and jumps back out of the pocket. China has to create a pocket going after Floyd. Floyd hardest fight, similar to hatten fight.

And maidana is a replacement fighter from khan, and that very bad luck. The last was allexander that porter stole his belt, before that was khan lost. Replacement fighter upset are common in history. Floyd went for the money. Let’s see how this play out. He need a UD or better.or his lesson to broner are in the waste basket.

B Red if you pull your tongue out of Floyd’s assshole for a minute you’ll find the Everlast gloves were custom made with the colors of Argentina’s flag. NSAC dumped those gloves and approved standard Everlasts, which his camp is fine with. Floyd is trying to make Maidana use Grant gloves which are like pillows. How’s Maidana ‘trying to cheat’?

This is just a stunt to get more buys and inflate the numbers. Maidana didn’t try to cheat. He went along with it…..Probably planned right after the fight was signed.

This is a multi-million dollar event. I’m sure they didn’t overlook what gloves are allowed. You guys are puppets.

The only fact here is that this is a 14-1 PPV fight.

The lead up to this fight has been horrible. Issue after issue after issue all to try and sell this awful fight card. You can’t fool people all the time. Mayweather and his company best try acting with some dignity and start treating fans and the general public with some respect. His ranting and raving about his ex fiancee’s abortion, Nelly now dating her, the glove issues and the constant complaint from boxing fans to have Mayweather fight the greatest fighter of all time, Manny “Pac Man” Pacquiao all point to desperation from a fighter and his company slowly but surely being exposed for who they really are. This PPV is failing. People aren’t going to shell out $60-$70 for this circus act. Boxing has become nothing more than a circus act every time Floyd Mayweather fights. People see right through him now. Thanks Floyd Mayweather for making the great sport of boxing seem like a big joke.

It’s a fixed fight! 80% KO ratio then all of a sudden Floyd comes to conclusion that the gloves Maidana has been using to KO his opponents are because of his no pudding gloves. It’s a set up! Bully Maidana and his accolishment and then people watch the actual fight and then all of a sudden the power punching of Maidana is gone. And Floyd KO Maidana with his super big gloves. Whatever they are serving tonight it will sure expose what a joke Floyd and Goldenboy promotion is truely is. All FAKE! It’s sad for boxing to allow this kind of circus act by bunch of clowns!

This is the reason boxing is going down the toilette and why Mayweather to me is considered and entertainer and not a boxer. Complaining about boxing gloves. c’mon now. Just fight man! You wear what you want and let the other fighter wear what he feels comfortable in. What your going to start dictating what kind of underwear he wears next? May and his team are a joke and fans don’t realize they are part of His reality show. There’s no more sweet science. That died years ago. If you want to see real fighters and not a circus, watch the UFC. Even the women show up to fight.I feel bad for Maidana. Looks like he’s coming to fight.

“Curiously, Miguel Cotto wore the very gloves Mayweather is complaining about during a WBA super welterweight title fight against Mayweather on May 5, 2012, at the MGM Grand. Mayweather won that fight by a unanimous decision.

Francisco Aguilar, Chairman of the Nevada Athletic Commission, ruled that a stock red pair of Everlast MX gloves were acceptable and he approved them for use. Mayweather COMPLAINED about the padding in those too, but Aguilar stood firm and said those were legal.

Aguilar then ordered the sides to settle the dispute among themselves, since the commission had approved the Everlast MX gloves. Ellerbe, Mayweather’s promoter, left a meeting among the camps and said, ‘No fight!’ ”

-Yahoo Sports, 5/2/14

So clearly, FMJ was being a prima-donna b*tch for whining about the approved set of gloves and trying to control what gloves his opponent was going to wear. His promoter even went so far as calling off the fight when he stormed out of a meeting with Team Maidana and shouted, “No fight!”

So the exact same Everlast MX gloves that were perfectly acceptable for Cotto to wear vs. FMJ are now suddenly too dangerous when Chino wants to wear them. WTF???

This guy is more like a prima-donna b*tch than a fighter because he always has a list of special demands and ultimatums for his opponents. He has to have every conceivable advantage going into a fight or else he won’t take it — to much risk. That’s NOT what you call a true warrior, and far from the GOAT or TBE.
Posted May 3, 2014 1:33 pm

What’s so hard to get? He didn’t have issue with Cotto’s gloves because he didn’t see anything wrong with the make. He does have issue with the way Maidana’s were made.

I would be more worried about Cotto’s power than Maidana’s. Especially since Cotto is more likely to land because he is the faster and smarter boxer than Madiana.

If Maidana had picked Grants and Floyd thought there were no padding in them around the knuckles he would have chucked those too.

It’s the make, not the brand.

Over this?

Floyd is supposedly not allowing him to wear those gloves so if he is not allowed to wear those blues, what is their to sell?

And, PPV buys, from my understanding, are mostly bought right before the fights starts and not in advanced by your casual viewer. Its just a click away. it’s not something you are ordering to come to your house through mail. Anything could happen so ordering in advance isn’t smart if you are just some bloke who want to watch the fight.

Sports bars and people of that ilk will advance buy.

I THINK IT was Vincent Kennedy McMahon of the WWE who coined the phrase that, “all controversy is good… Controversy creates cash!”

I don’t know all the ins and outs of the drama regarding the gloves, but I do know that any fans who may have been wavering on whether to purchase the PPV may just have been swayed by what has become a major issue and .i would suspect it’s being played out on news channels, social media and just about every conversation by the looks of it.

Who knows how many PPV buys the card has done, but I could bet that TMT are sitting back with Schaefer, laughing as they tote up all the last minute buys.

People will view all the out of ring issues and now issues with the gloves, from a puncher as a sign that we may see an upset.

I would love someone (a stato) to break down how many PPVS are bought today as a percentage if the total PPV buys. I bet it will be significant!

Does anyone know if Ashley Theoohane and Anthony Ogogo are on the bill and if so are they on the televised part of the card? I missed the undercard weigh-in.

They are trying to force Maidana to wear Mayweather’s orthopedic Grant gloves. I hope Maidana stands his ground or the fight is off…. Again, Mayweather is an embarrassment to his sport on so many levels. LMAO when I hear claims that he wants to clean up the sport. Wake up folks, he doesn’t care about the sport, about any other boxers or his fans. He is an utterly selfish (and obviously scared) individual, who would do anything to gain an advantage over his opponents. Next, he will demand that Maidana has one hand tied behind his back because Maidana’s fists are unusually big….

It’s just those specific choice of gloves Maidana had custom made.

Cotto wore the same brand and same type of gloves when he fought Floyd but Floyd had no issues with how they felt. He does have issue with how Maidaina’s feel. Lack of padding around the knuckles.

Robert Guerrero also wore Reyes and Floyd had no issues.

Cleto Reyes: Floyd wore those for Oscar. Why? Because that’s what Oscar wanted him to wear. Oscar was the “A side” as Floyd would say.

Andriol: Taken orally/through patches

Tyler Hamilton describes how he saw Armstrong using a mixture of Andriol, commonly referred to as liquid testosterone, and olive oil developed by Dr Ferrari, which was to be taken orally. On at least one occasion during the 1999 Tour Armstrong squirted the “oil” into Hamilton’s mouth after a stage. The testosterone, which boosts power, could also be dispensed through patches, which were to be worn overnight. Because testosterone is naturally produced by the human body, it is difficult to detect in low doses.

EPO and blood transfusions: Injected

Until 2000 there was no viable test for EPO, which boosts red blood cell production, thus improving endurance, and was taken by Armstrong and his team-mates under programmes devised by Dr Michele Ferrari, according to Usada. Saline solution was used to lower hematocrit levels and evade detection, while Ferrari instructed George Hincapie to inject it directly into the vein, so reducing the window of detection to 12 hours. At one stage, makeup was applied to Armstrong’s upper arm to hide bruising from an injection, the report says. After the EPO test came in, blood transfusions became more popular. Half-litres of blood were extracted, stored in fridges, then rigged up as drips on coat hangers and reinfused into riders, so replicating the effect of EPO.

Cortisone: Injected or swallowed

A steroid that reduces pain and inflammation, Cortisone is only prohibited if there is no medical need. So US Postal Service and Discovery Channel team doctors would simply provide false declarations of medical need. The Usada report claims Armstrong and his team-mates received Cortisone injections or took it in pill form. During the 1999 Tour, Armstrong tested positive for Cortisone but had no medical exemption – so the team provide a backdated prescription for Cortisone cream for saddle soreness.

Human growth hormone: Injected

Several of Armstrong’s team-mates, and officials, testify to witnessing Dr Luis García del Moral injecting human growth hormone, which as an anabolic agent increases size and power. There was no satisfactory test for HGH between 1998 and 2005 and Wada is only now close to having one.

Actovegin: Injected night before race

During the 2000 Tour, a discarded box of the anti-diabetes drug Actovegin was found in a skip. US Postal said at the time that it was used to treat road rash and Armstrong claimed never to have heard of it. But his team-mates claim it was administered the night before a race to “improve oxygen delivery to the muscles”. It is not currently banned but Usada said that the evasion of Armstrong and the team during an official French law enforcement investigation showed their willingness to lie.

You don’t negotiate blood tests. You follow full protocol which is set up for a reason: Deterrence most of all and if they can, catch.

You need to look back over what the Cyclist were doing. They were juicing during the races and not just during training. They use faster acting esters that are in and out of your system.

Floyd’s not my idol. Far from it. but I do support a fighter’s need to look out for himself when others don’t.

What’s wrong with additional testing in today’s era especially?

What’s wrong with a fighter throwing up questions about the possibility that the gloves presented, a custom made glove, were not made right?

Anyways, nothing will change your mind when it comes to your idol i can see….so i wont bother with this anymore… I’m a fan of neither so i don’t really care… i was looking at the whole situation of the PAC – MAY saga, and to me, there was only ever one person putting blocks in place, only ever one person resorting to slander, and you know who that is….

BACK ON POINT: may weather does not like a hard fight , he likes everything tipping in his favour, grant gloves, always favour the non puncher….. so i will not the watch the fight, maybe on a re run in a few months time…. for me the really interesting fight coming up is FROCH vs GROVES… peace out

MANNY PAC IS A PRO FIGHTER. The aren’t normal to begin with mindset wise. They are mentally tough which is why its laugable that he would have a problem with it. All he has to do is ask a Dr, read some books on it all and he should be OK.

Like he has never received a cut?
No more blood comes out than that.

He thinks everything effects him when he loses. Most fighters do. Its an excuse they need in order to step back into the ring.
Its the…”He didn’t beat me, something else did” routine.

I’m glad he had no issues with Morales struggling with weight (which is a legit thing) in the following bouts.

I’m not in favor of a fighter having to wear a brand that he does not choose. As long as they are legit, it should be cool. Again, Floyd had no issues with Cotto’s gloves that were the same brand. They also didn’t look like those gloves presented for Maidana.

So Floyd has reach,size,speed and skill over Maidana….And should also get to choose gloves,trunks,mouthguard and ring-entrance music ? ….LMAO!!!

If this is a question about fairness regarding padding in gloves…Just have Floyd wear the red Everlast gloves too….Case closed.

Annoymous: are you really that naive to think floyd mayweather with all his character attributes, raised all that drug testing issues because of the good of the sport…. come on, thats is just blind love…
He didnt fancy the pac fight, simple as that… or are you dull enough to think it was merely a coincidence that he chose to raise the issues for that particular fight, a very dangerous , fast south paw, who had quite clearly stated that he felt that taking blood right before his loss to morales was one of the key factors he felt contributed to his loss…. All That didnt even enter mayweathers mind, he was just being concerned for the sport.. hahahaha come onnnn ffs

What I am saying is that You should look out for yourself.

FLoyd was looking out for himself with additional drug testing. It had nothing to do with others in the sport. It never does. It’s about You and then the rest. Or even just you and if the rest want to join in, good for them.

He raised issue with Pac because of what he (and others) considered a red flag. To him (and others), Pac was doing something that was rare…continually moving up in weight while keeping his stamina, speed and also seemingly increasing his power.

Taking a small amount of blood does not harm your body. First, I would even say most, if not all, Pro Athletes have very suitable to above normal TBC levels. Considering Pac’s stamina, I highly doubt he has problems with his TBC levels which mean, the standard blood taken for tests wouldn’t even do a thing. Even the Doctors have said it.

Just remember, Floyd fought Cotto in Everlast but didn’t seem to have a problem with his gloves. . Yes, they is a 2oz difference between Cotto’s and Maidan’s but They also didn’t look custom made nor did they look as worn in or flat as Maidana’s. That’s why I suggest looking at pictures of Mike Garica who wears the same ones.

Look at pictures of Mikey Garcia’s fights and then look at those “custom” made gloves of the Everlast MX. They don’t look the same. The normal Everlast MX glove looks more padded and round with an even distribution of weight while those blues looked flatter around the knucles and more worn in already.

That’s odd.

part of it may be that it was the horse-hair gloves which aren’t as puffy as the foam.

Either way, I would be really cautious.

Weight distribution through the glove should be even. Padding should BE well inspected. If everything checks out OK, then the fighter should be able to wear any approved Glove by the commission. Hopefully, unlike the approved judges, whoever is inspecting the gloves is not some subpar idiot (like we’ve seen in judging) and is some legit glove maker and or someone that understand the proper construction of a Pro Glove. Because if it is some Joe-Blo in the commission that is a keyboard warrior, forget it.

Horse hair gloves are old school and better for power. When you sweat, according to Atlas, the hair gets wet and starts to slide down exposing more of the knuckle area that is of course wrapped like a cast. And in general, horse hair, tightly packed, is more solid than Foam.

If I were Floyd or any top level fighter, I would be so tight with my inspections of gloves, wrap, ointments, etc.
There is so much money in an upset.

I would not eat any food that is left out, and stick with tightly sealed things only. Any seal that is broke, chuck it.

Just The Facts

All gloves to be used in a pro fight are opened from their factory package by a rep from the state commission, they are to coin a phrase, factory fresh. The fighter then gets to select his choice for the fight from amongst those offered, he is allowed to try the gloves on. The commission then allows the opposing camp to check the gloves, this is where the issue arose, Floyds camp didn’t like the gloves and the commission acquiesced to his camps opposition. Another pair of equally constructed gloves, but of a different color were approved although they were not of the custom made color Maidana requested. It won’t matter one iota, when Marcos lands they will deliver the same impact as the custom colored gloves, they just won’t match his trunks or robe. It is pure gamesmanship by Floyd and it is part of the game, should the Nevada State Athletic Commission have bowed to TMT’s wishes, prolly not, but Floyd carries weight in Vegas and its a big, big money maker for the city. That’s just how it is in big time boxing where hundreds of millions are in play, it will have zero effect on Marcos, he is focused on whuppin Floyds azz even if he has to wear hot pink womens gloves.

I could go a little further. Even the illegal contracts that these Promoters put these fighters under. Look at the Andre Ward situation, the Chavez Jr., situation, what happened to Tyson under King and numerous other Arum and King fighters who have been taken advantage of presently and in the past. This is what the Boxing Commission needs to address. I applaud Floyd for doing his own thing and being his own boss. He would have never garnered a contract like his current one under Arum. Never! Because many Promoters still take advantage of their fighters and steal from the purses that these fighters should earn.

So, @floydissue…

Fight on the right side of history man. Help advocate for these things. Floyd is just one fighter. Soon he will be gone from the sport as a fighter, but many fighters will lace up after him. Cleaning up the sport should be fought for by every boxing fan and fighters alike. The fighters can’t do this alone but together we can all ensure that fighters are taken care of at the highest level because they are taking the ultimate risk.

@floyds issue:

Listen, Floyd is not running for President of the Free a World man. He’s a boxer. He’s not Ali, no. He also is not living in a time of overt white racism. Although racism still exists in this country, Jim Crow is no longer a spectacle of the South.

So yes, Ali stood up like many AA men and women did during that time. He had something outside of boxing to fight for. And it made him ‘The Greatest’ and his legacy will always be solidified because of that.

Floyd on the other hand doesn’t have those overt variables to fight against. His war is with something different. He chose to take aim at the Sports Cleanliness and lack of equality, integrity for all fighters. Who else at his level had the courage to take on that big elephant in the room? Oscar De La Hoya never stood up against it. He was a poster boy at one time. Tyson didn’t speak out against it until he had retired. Most boxers are scared to even speak out about the various Belt organizations and their tainted history. Fighters have been paid to throw fights, now fighters are cheating more than ever with PEDS, Judges as you can plainly see, are still being paid to steal wins from fighters. It’s the black eye of boxing man. This is what Floyd has stood up against. At least give him credit for being unafraid to stand up and speak out against these powerful organizations. Hopefully, when he’s done he will institute a boxers union that continues to advocate for fighters and clean up the sport that we love so much.

Floyd’s issue

@Rt, I admire Ali and I know that Tyson is a good person with issues. Ali was the mouth and was hated by many people, but he stood for something, for his people, his religion and his beliefs. We also saw an evolution in Ali. He transformed from an extremist into uniting people of all backgrounds and beliefs; he is loved by almost everybody. Tyson was and is a troubled individual, but he was real, there was no acting, he showed us his true self and went to a lot of controversy. Despite his wrong doings, he has my respect because he is a caring human being, I believe that. I see him more as a victim and respect him that he managed to overcome a lot of difficulties despite his mistakes that affected other people. He is honest.
You are saying that Mayweather is all an act. A human being that is a public figure is judged by his actions in and outside the ring. I agree with you, in the ring he is a master and admirable (despite sucker punching Ortiz, who however head butted him first). Outside the ring, I am not “entertained” by his “antics”. I think I am a good judge of character and I agree that I should be cautious before judging someone I don’t really know, but relying on my gut feeling, I truly don’t see anything admirable in Floyd Mayweather. He acts like a jerk… I have my opinion, you have yours. Forming an opinion is a human quality that is self preserving. I voice my opinion because it seems important enough to me to stand up for what’s right against what’s wrong.

I’m not a fan boy. I’m a fan of Jesus Christ my friend. I’m a fan of integrity, honesty, high moral character, etc.

I can also tell when a person is trying to Con me. Mayweather is a father. He’s a great boxer. He gives back. I can’t hate on that.

My question to you Jason is. Do you have $300m? No. You don’t. So you don’t know how that would affect you. Nor do you know how the people around you would be affected by your wealth. So relax guys. Watch the fight and enjoy it. But don’t make judgements about people you don’t even know.

When I look at Pacman on camera, I see a guy who is religious. I think he probably has a high level of integrity. I would never think he would juice. I would never think he would repeatedly cheat on his beautiful wife or even gamble. But, once again, I don’t know him personally.

So, once again, until you’ve been in a persons shoes, you can’t judge them.

But once again, it shows you that humanity on a basic level, lacks integrity. Why wouldn’t we want all sports to be fair? Boxing is no different. We cry foul about Sterling, Olympic athletes that cheat, baseball players that juice, etc. And it all boils down to equal opportunities for all and fairness.

Floyd’s issue:

How can you quantify Floyd Mayweather’s character? Do you know him personally? Or do you see him acting on HBO and now SHOWTIME ALL ACCESS like everyone else? I would go out on a limb and think that Floyd is just putting on a show to build the sport of boxing. I would argue that in real life he’s just a regular guy like everyone else. He has said many times that he devised the ‘MONEY’ mayweather persona. He idolizes both Ali and Tyson and their ability to generate money. He took pieces from both on-camera personas…

Think about it: Ali was the mouth right? Tyson was notoriously feared, looked on as the Black brute! the savage warrior that knocks people out and is crazy! Both legendary fighters made incredible amounts of money. Floyd has surpassed that success because he has borrowed on camera personas from both.

Arum wanted him to be like Sugar Ray Leonard. Look it up man! Boxing on camera is like pro wrestling. The difference is that inside the ring it’s very real. But how would a fighter sell a fight at the level of Mayweather without performing when the cameras are turned on? This is how you attract casual fans…you perform…you do outlandish things…say outlandish things. Broner is trying to do the same. These guys are famous in and outside of boxing because they entertain us.

Don’t believe the acting job Floyd Issue. It’s a movie man! What really counts is what happens inside the ring.

I can’t believe that so many people believe Floyd’s antics are real. It’s only entertainment. I guarantee you, he’s a good person with character flaws like everyone else.

@ Joe, of course Floyd and Maidana should have equal padding, therefore you have certain standards defining 8 oz gloves. As long as they are approved by a quality standard and the commission all should be fine. In this case they are except for one pair.

Rt, I am here for the truth. I have no issues with successful people, admire them. I admire people with courage, integrity, honesty. Floyd has none of these qualities, is just a talented, but selfish human being with very little good in him. I can see it, many others see it, you are misguided my friend.

If the gloves are approved then that is the end of the argument.. to all you very weird fan boys of his… MAYWEATHER DOES NOT DICTATE THE RULES… if the gloves are approved then there should be no problem, simple

Oh Yeah

Why is Floyd scared of a blown up lightweight? The red Everlast gloves are approved. They can be worn, simple. These head games won’t work on Maidana, he just wants to fight.

@Floyd’sIssue — So it’s okay for Maidana to have less padding in his gloves than Floyd? Would also have no issue with Floyd having less padding than Maidana?

Floyd’s issue

As you’ve no doubt heard by now, as we’re now past 3:00 am EDT on Saturday morning, Floyd Mayweather vs Marcos Maidana is still up in the air, as the fight camps have a big disagreement about the gloves that Maidana can use in the fight.

Here are the bullet points:
Maidana’s team brought a pair of custom blue Everlast MX gloves that Mayweather and his team objected to quite vehemently.
The Nevada State Athletic Commission agreed with Team Mayweather and ruled that the blue gloves were not acceptable. They did, however, approve a pair of red Everlast gloves, a stock MX model.
Mayweather’s team also rejected the red gloves. They offered to have Maidana wear the same gloves that Mayweather will wear, which are his usual Grant gloves, which Mayweather wears due to a history of hand injuries.
Maidana’s team, notably trainer Robert Garcia, flat-out refused the Grant gloves. And as far as I know, we’re still deadlocked.

Everyone has their theories and are slinging the usual nonsense insults. You can take a look at the comparison between the blue Everlasts of Maidana and Mayweather’s Grants at FightHype, but this is not the actual issue, is the thing. Nevada agrees with Mayweather that those blue Everlast gloves are not legal for the fight.

The comparison now is between Mayweather’s Grants and the stock red Everlasts that Nevada has approved Maidana to wear. The red gloves have been ruled by Nevada as legal, but the Mayweather camp is still insisting that Maidana wear Grants. Long story short, they’re pulling a power play here, or at least that’s how it appears. By the commission’s ruling, Maidana can wear the red Everlast gloves. Mayweather’s team is trying to say they will not fight if Maidana doesn’t wear the gloves they approve, which would be the the Grants.

So there are two key things to keep in mind here, and I know I keep harping on these points, but this is all clear as day and there’s just no interpretation otherwise:

The blue gloves are not in the question anymore. That has been agreed upon by Mayweather’s team objecting and the Nevada commission ruling them ineligible for the fight.
The Nevada commission says the red Everlast gloves are fine, and Mayweather’s team is still objecting.

Right now, the issue is with Team Mayweather. Maidana’s team are trying to use gloves that the commission has approved. They’re dodging questions about those gloves and trying to focus on the gloves that everyone agrees will not and cannot be used.

Now as for Team Maidana, Garcia says that Mayweather’s team also rejected using a pair of Reyes gloves. It’s clear that they are trying to force Maidana into using the Grant gloves.

This is all pure nonsense at this point, but hey, that’s what we’ve got. This is what is happening.

Right now, I’m still 99.5% sure the fight will go ahead, because it would be completely absurd for it to not happen. Too much money being thrown away otherwise.

poor mayweather not getting everything the way he wants it. I have no respect for mayweather hand picking all his fights to suit the way he wants it. How can he be a true great when he never comes out of his comfort zone to give the fans what they want. Calling mayweather an all time great is disrespectful to the lights of Ali, Fraser, sugar ray etc etc who were true warriors that went through hell on earth in there fights to give the fans what they want. Mayweather cares not about his fans and only his money.

FLOYDS issue:

Go fighthype.com and look at the difference in padding. It’s like someone has worn those gloves and been fighting in them for 20 years. The gloves are an embarrassment.
http://fighthype.com/news/article16908.html

Cheaters never win, and winners never cheat! That goes to show you that without cheating 99% of boxers at 147 have no chance to beat Floyd. It also shows a lack of integrity by Everlast or whoever made the custom gloves, Team Maidana and Coach Garcia. Those gloves look like they were tampered with.

Floyd’s issue

Rt, do soccer players wear the same shoes, tennis players use the same rackets, runners wear the same shoes, table tennis players use the same racket, etc? Granted the fighting business is more serious, if the commission approves gloves from Everlast other than the one on question, it WOULD BE UNFAIR to ask Maidana to wear gloves that he never used before. It is unfair to make that demand. The gloves are being used by many fighters, Mayweather is just a scare primadonna. The you bring up or compare Maidana to Margerito is totally unfair. Your comment on Latino fighters is racist!

Rt

Some of you commentators are extremely ignorant and volatile. The issue is fairness and Schaefer said it correctly, both pairs of gloves need to be the same. 8 ounces with the appropriate amount of padding anything else gives and advantage to the other fighter. Margarito had his padding cut out and could have killed Cotto. That’s not what fight fans want to see. Real fight fans want to see equal footing for both fighters. I for one don’t want to see any fighters hurt on Saturday night. Hats off to Ellerbe and team Mayweather for spotting the gloves in question and making it absolutely clear that no disparity with the gloves would be accepted. The Commission has to incite rules moving forward that denote that the same gloves be used whether punchers gloves or boxers gloves. But I’m thinking won’t horse haired gloves get wet during a fight and wilt. You could see from the video how flimsy those Everlast gloves were. As soon as they touched them, they seemed like padding had been removed. The gloves seemed airy and worn. I would have done the same thing. Hell no, I’m not putting my fighter in there with guy wearing non-padded, worn gloves. There’s nothing fair about that. Whatever gloves that the marquee fighter wears, the challenger would wear. I would also check every pair of gloves in that room. What I’m noticing is that some Latino fighters from outside of the US are willing to do anything to gain an advantage. This has to be stopped! This is not bare knuckled bar fighting this is professional boxing and Floyd is right to preserve his life after boxing. I would do the same.

Floyd’s issue

TBCE = The Best Coward Ever….he wants to make Maidana wear gloves that he never used before…although the commission approved all gloves except for 1 pair…once again he wants to change the rules…I HOPE THE FIGHT IS OFF, if not, I hope Maidana gets to him like never before, he needs a whupping!

Floyd’s issue

Floyd: “I got a family”…”I got live after boxing”…”I don’t want to be a vegetable”…He used the word “moth….cker” like 20 times in the video….Ok, let me say it as it is, Floyd is a moth….cking coward !!

Floyd’s issue

Floyd is a coward. He always messes with the opponents before the fights. He is an unfair fighter and a coward. Ellerbee is absolute garbage…
