No spit dummy what did you think I meant by “not watch?”

IDIOT!!! You don’t boycott by not watching… You boycott by not buying.

Go to somebody else’s house to watch it instead of throwing a fight party yourself … Don’t let those freaks have your 75 dollars — and you’ll spend another 1000 dollars on food, booze, and clean up before you know it. You’ll save a ton if you don’t buy Floyd’s fights.

Squared Circle…, Good point… Calzaghe was also 46-0 and ducked just as many guys as Floyd is ducking. He simply refused to fight Chad Dawson, Carl Froch, Glen Johnson, or Antonio Tarver.

Floyd won’t fight Lara… Porter… Pacquiao… or Thurman. Guaranteed!!!

Marcos Maidana won the fight 116-114 without question. I watched it a few times without bias in any way and without the volume. Fans around the world are correct in saying Floyd Mayweather got away with robbery against Maidana as he has in the past against Oscar De La Hoya and Jose Luis Castillo. Floyd Mayweather is not looked upon as an undefeated fighter because he’s really not. He was hit, roughed up and his constant holding because he couldn’t deal with a tough fighter made him panic and hold on for life. Holding, hugging or tying up as many put it is illegal. The referee should have taken points away. Holding is like putting your hands up and telling your opponent that he’s too much to handle. Marcos Maidana won 5 of the first 6 rounds. Look at the replay and see for yourself. He was landing the jab on Floyd when he wanted to. Floyd was missing by miles, and many of his punches were off the mark. He did have a few clean ones, but the crowd screamed even though the punch was a glancing blow or didn’t land. Maidana was the better man, and Floyd and his fans know this. Some people need to learn how to score a professional boxing match not an amateur boxing match. Maidana was effective throughout the fight. The 114-114 scorecard was more like it, but the truth is that one blind judge that should be banned for life had Mayweather winning 117-111?? What a pathetic joke. Regardless, Mayweather has been exposed, and the boxing world knows full well why Mayweather never wanted to fight the legendary, 8 division boxing champion and Fighter of the Decade. I knew all along Floyd Mayweather could not deal with Manny’s fighting style. Manny would have simply knocked Floyd Mayweather out cold. Too fast, strong, and brutalizing power in this southpaw fighting machine. The debate is over. The great Manny Pacquiao is the unanimous best fighter of his era as the Fighter of The Decade voted on by the best sports writers in the country voted Manny Pacquiao as being the best. What we all saw on Saturday night finally answered the question. Who was better, Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao. The winner, Manny Pacquiao. His legacy will live forever. His fights are memorable and exciting. The boxing world loves this man. Manny Pacquiao is a living legend, and he obviously doesn’t need Floyd Mayweather for anything. Floyd Mayweather is done.

Mbuyiseli my friend, not obsessed with Floyd, but dislike what he stands for. A man that was blessed with talent only to see him act the way he does and see how he treats people. He truly believes his money and material make him bigger and better than all humanity. The 24/7 and All Access shows people who Floyd Mayweather really is. He’s not putting on an act. He’s a hypocrite wearing diamond crosses and thanking God on occasion yet his mouth is full of garbage foul language and he has no shame when blatantly calling his own father every foul and degrading name in the book. Character in a person, especially a sports figure that has the attention of millions, has a better opportunity to live a good life and be a good role model to millions of kids and upcoming boxers, but acts like a fool and rambles about in his folly. I recall watching Floyd Mayweather as a young teen as an amateur and Olympian, and he was a very nice, modest humble kid. I watched him during the early stages of his career and his personality was very likable. He had a humble personality, and he looked to me like another Sugar Ray Leonard both inside and outside the ring. He then won his first title, and the hanger on’s started coming, and everyone started filling his head with all kinds of garbage. I began to see the beginning of what I thought would be a disaster of a potentially great fighter and role model as the promoters and his entourage of people came onto him like a bunch of vultures seeking their carcass. Floyd Mayweather then appeared to be believing everything, and then the ego started to come out louder and louder. The rest is history. We’ve all see what he portrays himself to be. The man today is a classless, egotistical, money hungry villain. Did you see what a jerk he was in the post fight press conference with his kiss but entourage behind him bowing at every word he said. Did you see Lil Wayne and the Mayweather camp trying to start fights with the Maidana camp as they were cheering through the hallway. I don’t need to get into Floyd Mayweather’s behavior because it’s all out there. He says things like Donald Sterlign is a great man? Putting his ex fiancee’s abortion document on Instagram? Calling Manny Pacquiao racist names. Laughing at fans because they pay money to see him fight. Throwing all his wealth in our faces is, and he has been consistent this this attitude and behavior the majority of his career. Floyd tries to act and speak well for about a minute, and then once someone asks him something or says something he doesn’t like, his real self comes back and begins degrading that person. Floyd Mayweather has rubbed people wrong, and as he says, he doesn’t care. Thank God for the world having a quality person like Manny Pacquiao. I admire and support this wonderful human being that is respectful, caring, loving, God fearing and is a humble, decent humble person that all of us can have admiration for. Just look at how he carries himself. Not one bad word. Not one word of disrespect for anyone. He never complains or cries. He never boasts about his money or materials. He gives and gives to those that are in need. Manny Pacquiao recognized the sin he had in his life at he turned away from it. He was a fallen man that took off the dirty clothes he had, and today he is a man with true character. Manny Pacquiao is loved and admired everywhere he goes, and for those that are jealous of him, he doesn’t sit well with. They try to take shots at him about his personal life. Laugh at his losses, suffering and struggles, but he continues to be a class act. He never changes. This is a good man. I hope this clears up my thoughts on Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. And just to add a little more to this. Manny Pacquiao is the best of all time. Floyd Mayweather proved to all of us that he would never have come close to beating Manny. Floyd is a skilled fighter, but he would have been knocked by the legendary, Manny Pacquiao, the only 8 division boxing champion in history. Hope my post helps you understand.

Gentlemen, I’m hoping that some of you MAYWEATHER fans can give me an answer to some information I’m going to share with you, and also some thoughts from Maidana fans that truly believe Maidana won. I’ve said on many occasions that Floyd fights in Las Vegas for a reason. He should have lost against Oscar, Castillo and Maidana. Someone please explain the same the following:

Floyd Mayweather beat Canelo Alvarez by the following judges score cards:
114-114
117-111
116-112

Floyd Mayweather beat Maidana last night by the following judges score cards:
114-114
117-111
116-112

Hmm………Coincidence????????????

You can’t be the best of your generation if you totally avoid the very best competition of your generation. We’re not talking about just PacMan here. There are about 5 and the list is only growing with guys like Thurman and Lara calling out Floyd.

That’s why FMJ’s precious “O” really doesn’t mean jacksh*t. I’m not singling him out; this standard applies to every fighter, past, present and future. Calzaghe retired undefeated, so that must make him “the best of his generation” according to loyal Floyd fans?

I stopped reading your post when you started talking about Pac. You obviously didn’t read my post. I said Maidana throws punches from odd angles. Looping shots and things of that nature. Pac really doesn’t throw from crazy angles. His shots are straight shots. He doesn’t throw looping punches. He also does not throw and crowd the way Maidana does. He jumps back and forth while Maidana constantly keeps coming forward

Posted May 4, 2014 10:30 pm 


sean patrick harrington

Peej what are you talking about. The ref was constantly breaking up carlos and Floyd so Floyd did not take any demage. Manny does not throw shots from angles? Have you ever seen him box. He throws punchs from every angle possible and always throws in combos to the head and body. Pac would beat the shyt out of carlos and ko khan. Carlos beats Bradley and pac? Your the only person that thinks that. Floyd got a gift last night against a c level fighter. Mark my words Floyd will never fight pac prod Bradley ggg Martinez or anyone with any real skills. Lets see how people agree with you.

I never said Khan lost the fight. I just said he didn’t beat him easier than Floyd. And if Maidana. Were to rematch Khan I would take Maidana by KO. I think he would also beat Bradley. Pac may have more pin point shots but they really don’t come from odd ankles and the are all straight punches. Maidana was coming from odd angles which seemed to trouble Floyd. Even after last night I still think Floyd schools Bradley and Pac. I think Pac would have a lot of trouble with Maidana. Especially with his power

BEARS, upon further review, i can’t give Maidana the 11th but i know i would have no problem finding another round to give him. honestly, Mayweather may have only won four rounds of this fight(?!) but i got no problem giving him five but six(?) or seven(?!?). i don’t see it . . . yet. Mayweather remains #1 P4P until further notice. he just ran into a guy who FInally knew how to use weight to his advantage. Floyd couldn’t put a dent on this guy and got dinged in the process. impressive performance by Maidana NOT a subpar performance by Mayweather . . . let’s not twist it.

Posted May 4, 2014 8:55 pm 


te tumbo

Maidana has matured into a flash-killing machine. his chopping shots to the head and body and expert jab(?!?) strike at the very joints of flashy boxers like Broner and Mayweather. although,”Chino” demonstrated this ability early on v. Ortiz and Khan. already fearless and relentless he’s become a demolitions expert under the tutelage of Garcia and training of Ariza. the stars are currently aligned in favor of Maidana.

Posted May 4, 2014 8:35 pm 


Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. LionKing)

IMO, Castillo I was Floyd’s clearest loss. Maidana was a closer fight, but “TBE” (LMAO) failed to win last night. Epic fail!

ODLH was also a very close fight and millions of fans believe it was a Draw or that Oscar won by a slight edge. But what do all three fights have in common??? They were ALL held in Las Vegas — Floyd’s hometown and backyard where judges and refs alike always give him the benefit of the doubt.

In fact, FMJ has not fought outside of his hometown once since before becoming a WW Champion in 2005. You have to ask yourself why is that???

Posted May 4, 2014 8:13 pm 


Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. LionKing)

When the Compubox stats are that close (difference of 9 punches landed), you really can’t use that as any sort of accurate indicator of who won. The Compubox system is not perfect. FMJ landed many feather-fisted jabs that shouldn’t carry the same weight on the score cards as hard, thudding body shots.

@ CurlyQ.Howard: I love all the slick attempts by you Floydiacs to protect Floyd from a well-earned beat-down, by somehow disquailfying those who they know would stomp Floyd into a grease spot… I.E. Khan and Pacquiao… First, Floyd says he shouldn’t fight Pacman, because got KO’d by Marquez, who Floyd beat… But then this hypocrite Floyd not only ignores his fans’ wishes, by picking Maidana, instead of Khan, who the fans wanted in part because he defeated Maidana. And as it turns out, he did it WAY easier than Floyd did, with Khan landing a 100+ more punches than Maidana with Floyd landing only 9 more punches than Maidana. Bottom line, you can’t protect Floyd from a well deserved beat-down by Manny or Khan.

Posted May 4, 2014 7:12 pm

Khan only survived the Maidana fight because Joe Cortez broke 50 so-called “clinches” where Maidana had one or more free hands to punch… MM was punching Amir out… But Cortez had other ideas..

“HOLD IT, HOLD IT, HOLD IT … NO PUNCHING, NO PUNCHING, STEP BACK, BREAK… BREAK… STEP BACK, STEP BACK.. WATCH YOUR HEAD MAIDANA — I’LL TAKE ANOTHER POINT!!!” … Cortez took a point from Maidana for an elbow that nobody saw.. After one round he damned near tackled Maidana.

He only fought 1 Welter his height…..Welters were smaller than than now. He did dodge one or two pure boxers …who could really box. Can’t remember their names off hand, a bit before my time.

Ali was a very tall Heavy in his day, allowing him to get away with backing straight back. Today, he’d be small heavy. Do remember Lyle was ahead when Ali KO’d him in I think it was the 11th…..

Hate means the haters didn’t see a good fight…they had their blinders on. …Did you see that Hook my guy threw….wow…
What I saw was what a great hook to the gloves…heard it in the cheap seats.

“Mayweather won the fight by a wide margin”(?!?). Clement must’ve been sitting on Slater’s lap, which doesn’t explain Clement’s thoroughly incompetent scorecard but explains Slater’s equally clueless recollection of this bout. I would like for somebody to identify the seven rounds they scored for Floyd? that is the only way to validate a winning scorecard-nod in favor of Mayweather. otherwise, “wide margin” and “won the fight fair and square” are just shilling generalities in favor of the Vegas status-quo, which Slater specializes in. quite simply, it’s impossible for somebody to find seven rounds that they scored for Floyd in this bout. if not, who dares list them for fight-fan scrutiny? . . . i’m waiting . . .

TED talk. Youtube it.
It’s interesting.

But yes, there is something to say about modern athletes being bigger, stronger, faster, better. The field is more open as well.

That said, Do you really believe the likes of SRR, Hearns, SRL, etc. couldn’t fight in today’s era in their prime at WW and win?

Duran would whoop on today’s LW.

Yes, I’m picking and choosing. But I’m making a point that we can take fighters from different eras, specific eras to be exact, and place them in today’s era and win just the same.

I would take Floyd Patterson over anyone at SMW to LH which would probably make him one of the best of all time according to the modern fans.

HW division, mmmm, depends. That has always been an iffy division. I think some of the ATG or seen as ATG would get blasted by some Champions later on, maybe even contenders and people won’t want to admit it because of the nostalgia. Size alone can be quite important. Then again, if we go by size, we could also throw them into the smaller weight divisions and compare. Longer discussion.

Hearns, SRL, SRR would beat the current crop of WW.

Today’s MW, I could find some for you that would own the current crop.

Long discussion.

Do you know what sports writers, boxing writers, and boxing commentators were saying back in the 1960′s and ’70′s???

They were saying, “These fighters today are bums. Ali would never have lasted a round with Dempsey, Louis, or Marciano.. All these fighters are a bunch of bums today..They’re soft.. They don’t train.. These guys are disgraceful.. They’re a bunch of punching bags.. Boxing is dying for lack of talent.. All the clubs are gone.. There’s no boxers anymore.. Boxing is a lost art today.”

They said the same thing 100 years ago and will say the same thing 100 years from now… Old timers always say their era was the best … It’s a broken record.

The ridiculous Mayweather code and blue print was deciphered last night by the Victorious warrior, Marcos Maidana, Actually there was no code because Oscar and Castillo had already beaten Floyd Mayweather, but the true code to defeat Mayweather is as follows: Never hire Nevada judges in any of Floyd Mayweather’s fight, never fight Floyd in Las Vegas, keep 24 hour surveillance on the NSAC and Floyd Mayweather so they cannot have any personal talks between them regarding fights, and hire a referee that actually takes points away and warns Floyd for holding so much. Holding is illegal in boxing. That’s why there is a referee. Marcos Maidana just simply made it more obvious to boxing fans that Mayweather is more hype than substance when fighting someone that has no respect for his boxing ability or power. There’s really nothing to like about Floyd Mayweather the person. Last night, the fans in attendance we’re booing the decision loudly. There was even a riot type incident that led to some people getting hurt. Floyd Mayweather proved to the boxing world that he is a very good boxer, but far from being. A one dimensional fighter like Maidana ran right through him. Yes he roughed him up a bit, but Floyd had no room for complaining after he sucker punched a defenseless Victor Ortiz in their fight. Floyd Mayweather is a whining, crying complaining, spoiled disrespectful boxer and human being. He lacks any decency as a person, and the dislike people have for him is deserved. Earlier Floyd had the audacity to say that the Clippers owner, Donald Sterling was a great guy???? Later in the week he posted the Instagram picture of the abortion his ex fiancee supposedly had. He then tops it off in the post fight press conference by criticizing Marcos Maidana in every way. This is a classless individual that has never grown up. Floyd Mayweather proved in his fight last night that he cannot stand alongside the great fighters like, Hearns, Duran, Leonard, Benitez, Pacquiao, Mosely, Oscar, Robinson and many more. Floyd should rank in the bottom half of the 50 best fighters of all time. Floyd is as I have said, a great athlete, but not a true fighter. He proved this last night. Others had beaten Maidana in much more convincing ways. Marcos Maidana is the new king as long as he avoids fighting the legendary Manny Pacquiao. The only 8 division Boxing champion in history. The true warrior that avoids no one and the greatest fighter of all time. The Mayweather myth is just that, a myth.

the fight was deemed close so Maidana is the logical choice for a rematch.

Pac is still with Arum so its going to be hard to negotiate that fight but you never know. Pac is a free agent.

Joking about GGG and Ward, right?

Thurman, Porter, Garcia, and Khan might be a better choice to duke it out amongst themselves until things are cleared up. Pac is available but I’m not sure how that works. He may fight JMM again which even though some are whinny about it, I would watch it. Why not. JMM knocked him out and now Pac has a chance to avenge that loss. He is more patient now it seems so it might still be a good sell. That, or fight one of the young guns but I’m not sure how that works with Arum and the other guys. Who is with who???

William, half of the fight is won on the negotiating table. Whatever edge you could get from it helps. Floyd’s camp demanding tests were classic signs of hesitation! Pac’s camp of refusing it is a classic sign of holding on to their fort, so to speak. But that’s water under the bridge. Pac agreed to all tests hence the “arum” excuse. I’m hoping arum would just step aside to facilitate the fruition of this megafight. But given the money involved, arum’s greed that will never happen. Even if pac’s camp says they’ll do the fight w/o arum, I don’t think floyd will believe it. After last night, floyd will never step into the ring with pac. As sure as the sun in going to rise tomorrow. Really sad huh?
Posted May 4, 2014 4:29 pm

I actually wonder if he side-stepped the Khan question put forth in the post-fight because he is realizing speed, youth, and volume is going to be a problem now at this stage. I know people will hit back on me for that but I thought it was quite odd. That, or maybe Floyd was just trying to focus on setting up the rematch. I don’t know. I’m sure someone will jump on it anyway to use it against Floyd. Whoever is out there that he doesn’t fight, he is avoiding. When he does fight them, then he is only fighting them to avoid someone else. Crazy. Khan thinks his advantage is youth, speed, age, volume against Floyd’s declining physical abilities. Roach thought the same so…maybe.

I don’t know. Watching both Great fighters {Pac/May} start to fade over the years is sad. It was like watching Tyson and Holyfield although at least Holyfield (like Pac/May) didn’t throw it all away like Tyson did in his youth. That’s a different sadness. waste of talent.
Then again, unlike Holyfield, Pac and May didn’t exactly want to go after the best at their best like Holyfield was willing to do. Then again, Holyfield has a cloud over his career.
Hahaha, this thing can go on and on and all over the place with the possibilities of shadiness within the sport.

Pac should have left Arum with or without the Floyd fight. That’s one of the things Ariza pointed out a while back. Floyd was doing it right by leaving him and setting up his own camp. Floyd and Manny were somewhat close in PPV numbers at one point but it was Floyd who was gaining the bigger Purse overall because of the way he had set things up on his end while Manny was having it filter through Arum first.
Forbes had a great article on how and why Floyd was making as much as he did. Manny should have read it.

Arum didn’t like what Ariza was saying so he was going to be thrown out sooner or later. It reminded me of King and Rooney. Rooney spoke his mind, wanted Tyson to get King out of the picture and Rooney was gone. Same with Ariza.

O’, and I’m not saying I wouldn’t be the same or do the same. They’ve made a name for themselves through hard work, taking huge risks, and believing in themselves… a good life and money to boot. That’s something more than I have done at this point. And if I had the options in booty like they do, Yeah, I can’t say I wouldn’t do the same. My ego would probably be inflated to. I would probably be more Manny than Floyd do. Give off the quite/shy/nice guy act but be wild in and outside the ring. I would have just done things a little bit different than both.

The whole thing was Ego more than anything. both of them. I’ve thought for a while they are closer in similarity than not when it comes to certain things. both have egos, both don’t give into demands, both pick and choose certain opponents, both are a bit overrated when you really look at it. And that’s just boxing. We’ve seen from the both of them that they are more wild in their outside life (just like anyone else with options) than people want to believe of the Good guy and Bad Guy act.

That’s why overall, I wish a Prime Tommy Hearns, SRR, SRL were around to scare them both down to the lower weight divisions.

Past their prime but would still be the richest in boxing’s history. I wouldn’t want to miss it! Would you? Lol!
Posted May 4, 2014 4:08 pm

Roach, Ariza, seemed to point to Arum a while back. Espeically Ariza and that was during the time things were going well with Pac.
Even Roach thought Floyd wanted it at one point but maybe not as much now because he is nearing the end.

Dana White even said recently that Pac should have accepted the demands, taken the 40 million and fought Floyd. And Dana isn’t a huge fan of Floyd but he is of Pac.

Cotto left ARum and Floyd signed him up real quick which gave Cotto his biggest pay to date.

Remind me again why Pac refused additional testing and didn’t even do it without Floyd involved?
And remind me why it was fair for some Pac-Fans and Roach to accuse JMM of using PEDs without evidence and passing the same tests Manny said were enough?

William, the factnof the matter is floyd is vegas’ cash cow! Imagine the amount of money he brings into their struggling economy. The will give in to his demands. Any boxer should be able to use any approved gloves for that matter. You may not believe but a lot of boxers are creatures of habit. You risk a lot stepping into that ring and be allowed to use every approved device and not changed to satisfy an individual. Sad but true!
Posted May 4, 2014 3:37 pm

I do believe they are creatures of habit. They also have to learn to adjust as well. Floyd gave into Oscar’s demands. Floyd even said it, he was the “B” side and Oscar was the “A” side at that point. Roles are reversed. Fair? not really. but to beat the King and take his land you do have to go into his turf and take it.

It’s not all fair anyway. Floyd showed up one pound over the WW limit of 147 by showing up at 148 on fight-night. Many others, including Maidana, use the loop hole and lose the weight for the scales and then blow up to 165 for the fight. Is that fair?
Why not go back to same day weigh-ins. Manny could certainly make 147 on fight-night. Not sure how many others.

My problem with not allowing Maidana to wear those gloves is that if he had been training in camp with those gloves his comfort level were set to those gloves. However, my one complaint in favor of Floyd still stands that if he saw those gloves were not made the same as the ones that Cotto’s were approved of, I too would have disapproved of their use. But that’s why you take a number of gloves with you which he did.

Now there were Reyes gloves which again, Floyd has worn and approved of as recently as his fight with Robert, however, and this is my thought, since one type of gloves were seen as unfit for the fight, Floyd was not going to trust any on the table brought for Maidana. So some had to be separably brought in (if that was the case).

We will see in the rematch which could take place if the numbers are right both financially and demand.

I would like to see Maidana next and then Pac for their final bout or best out of 3 and both are out. I just think at this point it will be sad to watch, like Tyson-Holyfield. Two past prime Greats going at it. One may win but you don’t know who really is better had they fought at their best. Maybe it shouldn’t happen. I don’t know. Then again, Ali-Frazier III was special.

William, floyd looks good fighting in the middle because of the type of boxers he has faced. If you go back to it, you’ll see that none of them are quick and fast except for weakminded judah. He looked great because of that. Jmm is a far better counterpuncher than floyd. Floyd always retreats to the ropes when pressured and becomes susceptible to swarmers. The problem is he hasn’t faced a perfect swarmer with speed, power, angles and good lateral movement. You know who has that quality!

William, pac is textbook example of a swarmer. Swarmer/slugger to be more precise, ala porter & maidana! They are bad for pbf’s defense. Pbf relies on the ropes to enhance his defense. Swarmers are more likely to land more than any style against floyd. So, gloves really matter! Punchers’ gloves are more compact. The reason why maidana lost is he had no speed and no lateral movement. Philly shell makes the weaker hand practically useless when pugs are on the ropes and relies primarily on their strong hand. Good lateral movement diminishes that. Jmm is a prime counterpuncher. Completely different from floyd. Plus jmm has the benefit of fighting pac several times already. “Law of averages” come into play.
Posted May 4, 2014 3:21 pm

Pac is more like a Prime Shane Mosley. A sharp shooter. Maybe a “boxer/puncher” with some boxing ability. Maybe like SRR since Mosley is more like Robinson. Less defense, more offense, crazy fast, volume puncher, sharp-shooter, some good boxing skills, and can unload on you when up against the ropes. But none are pushing you up against the ropes, roughing you up, hitting you everywhere and so on. That’s Marciano, Frazier, Armstrong for you.
He has some traits of a swarmer with his relentless attack but he isn’t a swarm/boxer/brawler like say, Tyson, Frazier, Marciano. Tyson is actually a hybrid since he could box, brawl, and swarm.
Maidana, like Hatton and Maricano, will hustle you to the ropes, grapple you up, hit you all over the place, muscle you, etc.
Pac will shoot his punches in an orthodox manner but with use crazy angles in doing so. Not the same.
He also isn’t a fighter that throws shots behind the head, to the thighs, low to the groin, knee to the face.

When Hatton and Maidana swarm Floyd, it was harder for him to use his Jab. Against a purer fighter, like Shane, like Pac, he could utilize the Jab because he wouldn’t be getting pushed to the ropes.

what about JMM giving Pac trouble because of his own Jab and coutner-punching ability?
That has no cause of concern to you that Floyd can do the same?

It would be a good fight. Floyd would have to keep it in the center of the ring and box.

I will say this though, even though they were 8oz gloves, a fighter should be able to wear any approved gloves beforehand. Horse hair vs. Foam does seem to make some difference. At least for protection. Some have talked about fit and feel of gloves and how important comfort is. So Yes, I think that can make a difference. So in the rematch, they just need to send the gloves to both camps and have both sides approve all gloves.

But my point still stands that all gloves were rejected based on the red-flag that those blue custom gloves set off. If you are a fighter, you are not going to trust any gloves on the table that are brought in for one camp if one type are seen as ill-fit for the fight.

Floyd approved the other fighter’s gloves I mentioned so it had to do more with that day and what happened than anything else.

William, let me help you out my friend! Swarming is different from pressure! Swarmers throw punches from all angles! Guerrero is not one!
I hope you realize that now! Ok? None of the fighters you.mentioned are swarmers! Floyd uses philly shell for defense and if you know boxing swarmers are bad for Philly shell defense especially for somebody with power, speed and lateral movement. Maidana had power and angles only. No speed, no good lateral movement. Now you see why pac is bad for pbf and gloves would not have been of help to the guys you mentioned. Ok?
Posted May 4, 2014 2:52 pm

Marciano vs. charles, Moore, walcott…I know. That’s what I see Maidana as.

That’s not the point though. We are talking about effective power with the gloves. So again, if Floyd was hit that cleanly by Maidana, no matter what gloves he had on, he would have hurt Floyd bad (if floyd had no chin) no matter what. He didn’t. He couldn’t even hurt Floyd with the shots behind the head.
They were still Everlast. It’s not like he was wearing 14oz “Winning” gloves.

JMM was bad for Pac though, wasn’t he?

Pac isn’t a swarmer. he is more in line with Oscar and Shane actually. He is not going to bully you with strength to the ropes like Maidana was doing. Pac doesn’t throw looping shots either. He is a straight shooter.

Its not quite the same fit for an example.

Would it be tough? YES, for both. Especially now for Floyd. roach wanted him for a reason, he has faded for years. Once the legs are gone from fighters like Ail and Jones Jr, even though Floyd is more of a technical fighter than those two, they are still more stationary to be targeted.

William, let me help you out my friend! Swarming is different from pressure! Swarmers throw punches from all angles! Guerrero is not one!
I hope you realize that now! Ok? None of the fighters you.mentioned are swarmers! Floyd uses philly shell for defense and if you know boxing swarmers are bad for Philly shell defense especially for somebody with power, speed and lateral movement. Maidana had power and angles only. No speed, no good lateral movement. Now you see why pac is bad for pbf and gloves would not have been of help to the guys you mentioned. Ok?

Posted May 4, 2014 2:31 pm

You just mentioned the gloves, I showed you the facts

Oscar, Robert, and Miguel are all come forward fighters. They don’t have to be swarmer/sluggers. You just need the power and the ability to land.

Cotto is bigger and stronger and hits harder and so does Oscar. Robert swarmed Berto and beat him up.

If Maidana actually landed that many punches on Floyd cleanly, and has that type of crazy power, no matter what gloves you have on, as long as they are 8oz, which they were, they should lump you up.

Posted May 4, 2014 2:31 pm 


Flash knock down

Maidana weighed lbs. at fight time Floyd weighed lbs at fight time. Now let that sink in for a minute. A welter weight is not supposed to be able to knock out a super middle weight. This was a very close fight but Maidana fought a very,very dirty fight. I believe if Maidana had focused on keeping the pressure on rather than all the dirty tricks he would have won.Floyd is too smart for tricks. I believe Maidana set a record for every dirty trick in the book. Hey it is a fight and I don’t blame him . Head buts,twisting of the arms,hitting behind the head,knees lol,. Floyd did what he had to do to win. Floyd will never fight another African fighter at the top of his game . The main reason he will use is there is not enough money but the real reason is they can beat him now.Father time has caught up with Floyd. Sure he can still fight but he has lost something.This was a very close fight Robert Garcia did his home work on Floyd and Maidana all most pulled it out.Just remember Alexander made Maidana quit. Alexander,Porter,Berto yes Berto Brad Solomon,Bradley all give Floyd a better fight.

Floyd said he wanted to give the fan’s what they wanted, the fans mostly wanted to see floyd challenge d and or in a competitive bout.

Dont think for one minute that Mayweather, Schaefer and haymon did not take into consideration that some smart fan’s was calling this a mismatch and wanted to prove people wrong and that the ppv was well spent money. Floyd could have done a lot better.

Now with that said I’m not completely surprised that maidana did a little better than expected, i’ve been saying for year’s that a volume come forward brawler with power a good chin and just as important, great stamina to throw a high volume of punches all 12 rounds has a good shot of upsetting a boxer.

Ruslan pov… proved that against tim Bradley. Maidana proved that against broner, and Marvin hagler proved that against sugar ray.

There is just a couple maybe 3 more thing’s a brawler needs as part of their over all game plan to be successful against a floyd Mayweather, i’m shocked at the fact whoever makes the fight strategy isn’t implementing these few thing’s.

Mayweather did very well, congrads floyd.

Posted May 4, 2014 2:20 pm

Do you realize how often other fighters and trainers make a big deal about gloves and hand-wraps? All the time. Hopkins, Roach, the late Emanuel Steward, etc. all are picky and will threaten to pull out. Why? Because their concern is for their fighter and fairness.

Again, you don’t put your man at a disadvantage if there is no need to.
That’s why they check wraps, gloves, and are supposed to have the best drug testing in sports. After all, its a sport of combat.

You people baffle me.

The rematch will be in September most likely. They can always send Floyd a newer pair of that same brand and style to check out, inspect, and agree upon. He can go over his thoughts on why they are not good and why they are ok.

There is no time to think things over in such a short time. Any thought of it being ill fit for the fight, you better listen to your instincts and say NO.

I always thought that prime Mayweather would have edged out Prime Manny. But last night close fight with Maidana mainly because Maidana fought Mayweather and didn’t try to out box him ,which is what Manny would have done, convinces me now that Mannny’ s speed and agressivpness would have won.

Posted May 4, 2014 2:06 pm

Cotto used the same brand and style that maidana was going to wear so it had nothing to do with being scared of “puncher’s gloves.” The difference, the blues set off a red flag and Floyd wasn’t taking any from that style/brand on that day. If one is bad, he isn’t going to trust the others. New ones had to be brought it. Cott’s were checked by Floyd and he didn’t have a problem with them. If that was you, you would do the same. Smart Generals never give their opponent an advantage that is not required.

next time, there does need to be more time to review the gloves beforehand and signed off and sealed. This way, you won’t have such problems so close to a fight.

Jack jones, are you kidding yourself! ? Maidana can beat pac!? Bad hangover huh!? The REASON why maidana did good is because floyd has no knockout power to worry about! No reason to stop him from applying constant pressure on pbf. Problem is he does not have enough speed & accuracy to land punches better! Now, close your eyes and imagine pacquiao doing that! GAME OVER! LMFAO!

How many 37 year olds are still at the top?
You are supposed to be on your way out or out of the sport by then. So you are watching a Man that is relying more on Experience than Physical ability (which is huge in boxing).

Had it a draw too…Mayweather honestly didn’t look good…Was very surprised how easy Maidana got to Mayweather considering Mayweather held all the physical advantages prior to the fight…Was very surprised that Mayweather didn’t use the jab more often and all the punches he threw off-balance….Which would have been almost impossible to see in a Mayweather fight just a couple of years ago…Maidana for me didn’t come with anything new, he was exactly the same hard-working,slugging, walk-you down fighter as always…Thought team Mayweather had seen alot of video on the guy ? Whatever they saw it wasn’t the right tactics or Mayweather simply couldn’t pull it off…This fight should turn on alot of red lights for his coming fights…Maidana is hard as rock and always gives his all ,but to call him more than B+ would be a lie.

After last night’s fight, everybody needs to STOP saying that Floyd is the best ever or even in the Top 20. Guys like Chavez SR, De La Hoya, trinidad, prime Mosley, Leonard, Hearns, Duran, etc etc etc would have wiped the floor with Maidana. I was absolutely shocked at how competitive Maidana was against Floyd. Shocked. PBF really seemed troubled by Maidana’s jab, volume punching, and relentless pressure. It makes more sense now, why the Margarito fight never happened. Margarito at his best was like Maidana times 2.

First in formost lets point out the obvious, this fight was close, the punch stat numbers can be manipulated, everyone knows that.kill the numbers and believe in what you see with your own eyes and what i saw was maidana winning this fight close.if you want to say mayweather won based on numbers or he won easy than your either a mayweather fan or know nothing about the sport.the fact that there was a judge who scored it even is proof of this and this judge was front row, do you think he basing his score on stat numbers?surely if he saw it even and i thought mayweather lost among alot of others should tell everyone here listening that this was a close fight.Keeping in mind that im not a mayweather or paqiou hater and what i think is that just my opninion, the stupid writers that write dumb articles like this praising mayweather for being light years away from maidana is clearly a fan as he makes it seem that maidana didnt touch floyd.Sorry you missed a great fight.

Floyd Mayweather lost to Marcos Maidana last night, and that was clear except to the blind LAS VEGAS judges as usual. Marcos did everything he needed to do to win, and he is the champion in the eyes of the public. Effective pressure, volume punching and an in your face boxing style overwhelmed Mayweather from the start. Marcos Maidana was landing solid jabs all night out. Floyd Mayweather did the only thing he does when a fight gets tough, he held on for dear life, which by the way is ILLEGAL! Referee Tony Weeks took points away from Kahn, but did nothing but hinder Marcos Maidana from being even more effective. The fans knew it. We all saw a clear victory for Maidana, but as usual, Floyd Mayweather fighting in Las Vegas, which is the only place he will ever fight seems to have a lot of power and pull on all of his fights. Jose Luis castillo beat him and was robbed, Oscar De La Hoya beat him and was robbed and now Marcos Maidana beats him, and guess what? Marcos got robbed. Judge Clements had the fight scored for Mayweather by a ridiculous score of 117-111???? This guy needs to be abolished from boxing as does Judge Moretti. I’ve watched this fight a few times, and I can say without bias that Marcos Maidana was the clear victor last night if you know how to score a fight objectively ans use ALL criteria to score a round. And fans know full well why Floyd Maywether wanted no part of the legendary Manny Pacquiao. Marcos Maidan with all due respect best not be barking at the wrong tree if he thinks he can deal with the legend that is Manny Pacquiao. Manny knocks out Maidana inside of 6 rounds, trust me on this. Floyd Mayweather was exposed as the fighter all boxing fans knew he was. He could never handle Manny Pacquiao’s offensive, brutal southpaw, awkward style of fighting. Manny would be 10 times more difficult with his speed and power and feints than was Maidana last night. The Post fight press conference was nothing more than an ego maniac that had to hog the stage because he knew he lost. Floyd went on ranting and raving about the low blows and elbosw and all this other garbage so that he could give fans and excuse as to why he got beat, and then to have an entourage of his dummies on stage was a joke. Marcos Maidana basically said stop you’re talking and I will give you a rematch. Maidana knew he won. The sport of boxing has become a big joke ever since Al Haymon and Showtime’s puppets (commentators) have been trying to monopolize the sport of boxing. They seem to have way too much power with all aspects of a Mayweather fight. The glove issue was a joke if they had already been approved by the commission. I can now see how money can buy power. Floyd Mayweather sure seemed to be anxious and wanted the entire press conference to himself because he knew he lost. No more talk about being great, no more talk about being being in the same level as Manny Pacquiao, no more talk about how he could have handle any greats past or present. The truth of the matter is that Floyd was crying and complaining and received a big gift by those that live in Nevada and are judges. Congratulations to Marcos Maidana, a man with class, dignity and the real winner of last night’s fight.

Yes Floyd did say he’d go toe to toe with Maidana before the fight, but when he saw it was a bad idea he went back to fighting the center of the ring, the only times he’d have success. Chino still went after him tho and never stopped using the jab. Jabs, overhand rights, hooks, etc Maidana threw just about everything except uppercuts. Maidana fought like a world class pressure fighter, which are rare nowadays

Opinions showed you how great Mayweather is. He fought an aggressive and very good fighter seven years his junior, he beat him soundly and people think Floyd is done.

Listen, haters, Maidana or Canelo can KTFO of Pac in 5 or 6 rounds. Heck, an aging Marquez did it.

Stop thinking Pac has a chance. His momma can invoke all the voodoo her wrinkled @$$ can find in her witchcraft oracle, nothing can help Pac.

Live the rest of your pathetic lives fuming mad and yellow with jealousy. You cannot change the fact that Floyd is number 1. Pac is number 9, despite pumping his system with PED and cherry-picking geriatrics and draining them. Pac re-signed with Top Rank. Tell tale sign your god is scared of Floyd.

PEEJ- i dont know why you think pacman does not throw punches in angles. in fact pac creates wilder angles, is busier compubox wise, has tremendously better footwork, has all the experience and smoked bradley in the box game, and is probably 10 x greater than maidana. pax footwork and angles is WHAT HE IS KNOWN FOR SON. im not surprised you said pac had no angles and and could not compare to maidana in that department because you clearly dont know what your talking about.

your just here refuteing the truth. fraud may lost. dude no longer has zero losses. us real fight fans know. your gonna be here day in day out repeating the same drivel excuses as though your loosing a bi of yourself as frauds rep diminishes. as the tape is analyzed over and over again and scrutinized. its only gonna get worse for mayweather and you. your just on in fraud may nutthugging horde

Floyd fights Latin fighters almost exclusively now. You know why? Because you pay money to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with Floyd and company. You pray to see him lose. You buy ppv, you book tickets, buy a couple cases or suds, get yourself a country flag and prop yourself down on the couch or in the stands and watch him beat these Latin boys over and over again.

You Latin and Filipino fans are delusional. Call a spade a spade people. Give the man his props. He hasn’t sniffed up his money like Tyson did. You’ve never seen him drunk and high in heals and fishnets like Oscar. You’ve never seen him taking a nap on the canvas like Pacman. He doesn’t have to eat quail eggs and drink urine like Marquez.

You know why a rematch is a good thing, because Floyd will make 50m this time, he will sell more tickets, he rent buses to bring in his Latin fans or fans that desperately wish to see him defeated and he will beat them all again. Go cash he check and go to the Spa or your dimes.

Floyd fought well last night. But Maidana proved why Floyd has been reluctant to fight Pacquiao. Maidana’s relentless, high volume attacks caused Mayweather problems.

Floyd haters are cretins of the highest caliber they keep saying Maidana won but computer stats tells a different story even in the face of this evidence they still can’t make a coherent deduction. I have watched fight again and I gave the first 3 rounds to Maidana, gave the next four to Floyd and the 3 out of the remaing 5 rounds to Floyd whilst giving Maidana the last round. Floyd had Maidana stunned and hurt a few times and that counts more besides the fact that he had a higher connection rate.

Floyd meanwhile, will go back in the gym. He will dedicate himself. He will watch the tape, see the minimum mistakes that he made. He will listen to Dads advice this time and he will make a few more adjustments.

He will be hungrier, even more steely minded and disciplined.

Maidana will get back in the ring and get TKOed. I’m calling it first! Remember, Maidana outweighed mayweather by 20 lbs., he tried everything to break Floyd’s will and he couldn’t even dent his will. Trust me, Maidana knows it and. Garcia knows it. What else can we do, other than kill or injure Floyd in order to beat him. Maidana can’t get any better. He’s a strong willed club fighter… A brawler.

If you know Floyd, like I know Floyd (I’ve been watching this kid since he turned pro). Floyd is not the illusion that he presents on the access shows. This guy can really fight! He is just as gritty as any other fighter, even more so, because he’s never lost! He never wants to lose and this is what separates him from all other fighters that I’ve ever seen in my lifetime. Sometimes Floyd desires to test himself beyond boxing opponents. Because he already knows he’s the best technical boxer with the best boxing I.Q. Floyd plays chicken with certain fighters. He likes to beat them at their own game. He did this last night. He fought Cotto like that. Mosely like that. Oscar, Gatti, the late Diego Corrales. He fights these so called punchers right in the pocket. If they like to bang, he’ll fall in on the ropes for them. Casual fans don’t understand this kids boxing acumen and why it’s hard if not impossible to best him. They think it’s some code. When it’s actually that this kid can fight and beat you at your own style because of his superior hand and foot speed, defense, IQ and conditioning. He’s a perfectionist a boxing purist and his opponents all come in thinking that he’s a pretty boy and then the get surprised when they realize that the money and flash is just an illusion. The kid can flat out fight and he can adjust to any style!

This was a HUGE gift decision to “Pretty Boy” Floyd Mayweather Jr. What a shame.

Marcos “El Chino” Maidana was the better aggressive fighter to put on harder press on the other and all he gets at best is a 114-114 Draw? – And one judge Burt Clemens scored 117-111 for Mayweather Jr? WHAT A JOKE!

It happens. It’s boxing. What have you done in your life?

Lots of you have encyclopaedic knowledge of watching boxing, dissecting fights and fighters down to the most microscopic detail…..but I suspect the vast majority of you have never trained, sacrificed, and climbed through the ropes and boxed in any capacity at all.
Some of stuff that gets written by you supposed fight fans is downright insulting , now I don’t know if these are realy your actual real opinions of the fighters, or just that the internet brings out the c**tish side of people.
It’s cringeworthy to hear some of your descriptions of fighters, I,ve a mental image of most of you as obese , junk food munching , coke guzzling ,bespectacled mummies boys talking tough on a forum about boxing….with no real understanding of what it takes to be a fighter.

AGREE. All fans of boxing should start out by going to the gym (if they don’t have respect for these fighters) and spar with someone with experience.

Joe Rogan, made a point that everyone should be in jiu-jitsu because it teaches the person to be humble because ALL are getting tapped. You think it is something two men do rolling on a floor, well, step on the mat and watch the skills unfold as you tap and cry out for mercy.

Same with boxing. Step in the ring with someone experience while you are not and I’ll let you know why you should be humble after you wake up.

Critique the fighters, YES, its your right. But to say they are bums, losers, not good because they were hurt, knockdown, lost…come on.

“You don’t think Maidana deserves a rematch? I thought he did better than any Floyd opponent has ever done.”

I didn’t watch the fight last night Peej, but I listened to Joseph Herron’s call of the bout. Something happened with the internet connection though and I didn’t get to hear the last 4 rounds of the fight. But by the time I lost the connection, Maidana was breathing hard and missing shots, and Floyd was starting to land more systematically on Maidana.

What I haven’t seen here on ESB yet is anyone saying it was a great fight. Sounds like it was and I give Floyd credit for duking it out with Marcos and fighting tough. I also give ref Weeks credit for calling Floyd for his elbowing and Marcos for his rabbit punching. But as I expected, Weeks broke them up a few times when he didn’t need to. Great win for Floyd against a prime opponent.
Posted May 4, 2014 11:18 am

It was a good fight. Floyd has been in better fights against pressure fighters and will continue to be (like Ali was) because of age and wear his legs and conditioning is.

Weeks either did a great job in not getting involved or a terrible job in not getting involved. It depends on how you feel about a “fight.” Maidana was consistently nailing Floyd with looping shots to the back of the head, hit him on legs, even kneed him at one point (hahaha) and Floyd did get warned about the elbows.

Wow! At the end of the day Mayweather was given the decision the margins may have been off but a win none the less. Broner wants no part of Maidana after he roughed up big brother last night. Besides Maidana giving a great effort last night and roughing up Mayweather. For the first time ever, mother nature and father time took a peek at Mayweather. In the past Mayweather was able to move out of harms way and out box the other fighter. In the past the other fighters showed the effects of his punches. None of that happened last night. Has age finally caught up with Mayweather? If that be the case will he fight someone as fast as Kahn even though he has a suspect chin? Who is left that will bring in the dollars? Rough hombre in Maidana and age creeping up on him made it interesting last night. We can forget about Pacquiao and anyone else with hand speed. He is going to have to rely on some ring knowledge in his last three fights.

Max Kellerman, Brian Kenny, Dan Raffael, and many others that aren’t particularly fond of Floyd scored the fight for Floyd.

And they weren’t softer gloves. Same Brand, same make, just standard. Floyd I hear didn’t even want him to wear them but agreed because the commission agreed they were legal.

Those other gloves were one of the other gloves Maidana brought as a choice. He just didn’t get to pick his first choice which were the costume blues.

He doesn’t have to KO Floyd to win. He just has to overwhelm him with speed, agility, and punch-out-put like Calzaghe did to Hopkins. Roach has been saying it for the past several years. Floyd is no longer that fast agile mover who throws more than an occasional combination. You want that Floyd, go back before he was 30.

Floyd lost the first 5 rounds and the last two, At-Least. he was being tagged and roughed-up like never before. 7/12 for Maidana. in fact, he may have actually won the first six rounds before Mayweather began to very gradually pry control from Maidana, but in the 11 and 12, Maidana remaind busy and effective and simply outworked Mayweather throughout. there simply is no credible argument on behalf of Mayweather winning this bout. Maidana has earned the rematch. otherwise, this is one “loser” that Pacquiao* won’t be eager to face.

Maidain was throwing more shots to the back of Mayweather head than anywhere else. Half the shots missed and the other half were rabbit punches. with that said by the 4 th round Mayweather had Median figured out and kicked that ass. Two win a boxing match not only do you need to throw punches but you need to land them and 50% of your power shots don’t count if there all to the back of the head. some of you fools just want Mayweather to lose and you don’t care how it happens a draw on one card pathetic ref should be fired always one in the bunch.

Looping shots to the back of the head which makes it very effective and hard for the ref to warn.
He reminds me of Marciano.

The only thing Floyd figured out was that he needs to stay in the center of the ring to be most effective (which he either couldn’t because of age like Ali couldn’t or______) and that he needs to get off first to stop Maidana in his tracks.
That’s the keys to victory in the rematch: Stay in the center of the ring, use a heavy Jab and get off first in at least two punches at a time to prevent Maidana from unloading.

That was a good fight on both fighters some of y’all just haters and PAC fans to me PAC won’t beat neither fighter he’ll PAC couldn’t ko rios the punching bag can’t wait till rematch forget PAC Floyd did good and won the fight but maidana was not a cake walk please good fight

Rematch Maidana in September followed by Pac next Year and call it a day.

Now people can please stop saying “he is only getting better” when he clearly was not. I’ve been telling people for a while now that he is slipping. Roach has been saying it for years.

All you had to do is watch fights of his early in his career and compare. Do it back to back.

I swear people have a short memory.

Floyd is done. Now we can all see why he made a massive effort to avoid Manny. Quite sad actually. Madiana was robbed blind last night. As they say in Vegas the house always wins. The Argie exposed Floyd and beat the snot out of him. Always liked Floyd but he should now retire with just the 2 losses

I love Maidana. He went after Floyd and tried to make history and it was fun to watch for a short time but he failed. Floyd is just too good. By mid fight Floyd had completely figured out the aggressive Argentine, made adjustments and won the way he always does. Anyone who does not see that simply doesn’t understand boxing. Floyd possesses one of the most brilliant boxing minds of all time and it’s a thrill to watch the man work. I really don’t see a need for a rematch. It would be less than half as competitive as this one was. I do feel the scores should have been closer but it certainly wasn’t a draw. Floyd is still king.

You lot are funny…..the way you all talk about fighters , ( bums….B level…C level…gatekeeper etc..)
Wtf are you all doing wasting your time watching the sport for…..you seem to hold the fighters in the upmost contempt, and show zero respect to them .
Lots of you have encyclopaedic knowledge of watching boxing, dissecting fights and fighters down to the most microscopic detail…..but I suspect the vast majority of you have never trained, sacrificed, and climbed through the ropes and boxed in any capacity at all.
Some of stuff that gets written by you supposed fight fans is downright insulting , now I don’t know if these are realy your actual real opinions of the fighters, or just that the internet brings out the c**tish side of people.
It’s cringeworthy to hear some of your descriptions of fighters, I,ve a mental image of most of you as obese , junk food munching , coke guzzling ,bespectacled mummies boys talking tough on a forum about boxing….with no real understanding of what it takes to be a fighter.
I may be miles out with that thought, but I,m pretty sure there’s one or two of you lot that shout the loudest who fit that description to a tee.

The ref was paid off… Everytime, Maidana had the Pretty Pretty One in the corner or against the ropes, he seperated them, even if there was still action going on. The Pretty One couldn’t get out so the ref had to save him. The one judge that had it a draw had the closest correct score. Maidana was robbed.

Floyd chose to fight that style like that. They fight again, it wont be close.

Posted May 4, 2014 10:33 am

I don’t think Floyd fought the right fight. Maidana made it ugly he roughed him up Floyd but he never hurt him and alot of the shots never hit the target, Ellerbe said before the fight that Floyd would have to dig deep to win I wonder if this was a planned attempt to spark more interest in his fights, Because he could have stayed off the ropes and he easily outboxes him. He chose to stay in the pocket in front of him and exchange but I am not sure if it was age, outside interference or giving the fans what they want to see. Or maybe it took him little longer to adjust to Marcos. But I think the rematch would be a shut out.

Posted May 4, 2014 10:30 am 


Tomato Can

The fight was close and a lot of it was fought at Maidana’s pace. Maidana landed some good punches and Mayweather didn’t wilt. At 37 Mayweather is still tuff to beat but not unbeatable. Mayweather’s career nearing it’s end, but he has enough left to beat Maidana again if the rematch happens.

Posted May 4, 2014 10:29 am

I think a rematch would be not be a good fight, Maidana has one style, the second fight Floyd would pick him apart.

we can forget about the pac fight, can you imagine the gloves issue .. mayweather would insist on 16s lol..

Im watching boxing for many, many years… mayweather is the worst champion i have ever seen in terms of demands ..

GOAT … don’t make me laugh, its an insult to the real warriors

percentage of punches landed mean nothing. If fighter A throws 10 punches in a round and lands 2 he is connecting at 20 percent . Fighter B throws 4 punches in the round and connects with 2 ,which means he has landed 50 percent of his punches. The fighter who is more active deserves to win the round.What was Canelo thinking when he tried to out box MYweather. Maidana fought the right kind of fight to have the best chance to beat Mayweather.

Posted May 4, 2014 10:08 am

Floyd Mayweather got worked and battered last night and that could easily have been called a draw. One judge had it 9-3 to Floyd, amazing…Of course, Floyd always gets the benefit of the doubt. Funny how certain people use punch stats to justify their fighter winning a close decision and then ignore them in other cases.

You don’t think Maidana deserves a rematch? I thought he did better than any Floyd opponent has ever done. I think he deserves one. There really aren’t many other Welters out there accept for Porter and Thurman. I think they are gonna fight and the winner gets Floyd. But that will be next year .

Yeah but WHY give Maidana a rematch. He has only done it for one other fighter for obvious reasons. Floyd knows and the fans at the arena know too.

Posted May 4, 2014 9:47 am

There are really no adjustments Maidana can make in a rematch. Floyd can actually change his game as he did in the 2nd half a the fight. It would be an even wider win for Floyd if they do rematch and I think Maidana deserves it

Posted May 4, 2014 9:44 am

BEARS is a racist bastard that has no clue how to score a fight. Pac doesn’t have the awkward punches that Maidana has and Floyd will still handle Pac. Heck Maidana would hurt Pac and Bradley gets schooled

Posted May 4, 2014 9:42 am 


PEEJ

Maidana is a good fighter. Yes he is a B caliber fighter but one that can rise to the occasion as he has done many times. Which means he can rise to the an A level fighter. He seemed to do that Saturday night. Most of his body punches were blocked. Yeah Floyd was bleeding from a head butt. Not to mention Maidana was throwing a lot of rabbit punches and hit low a few times. Floyd got passed that and won. If you were a so called boycotted you actually missed a good night of fights. I’m willing to bet that these guys that were boycotting still watched the fight.

where were u rounds 1-5 son!?

u think maidana did not win any more rounds after that? DENSE!

Posted May 4, 2014 9:36 am

Floyd gave Castillo a rematch for obvious reasons. He now is thinking of giving maidana a rematch for obvious reasons. Like Roy/Tarver 1 result he might better leave maidana alone and move on. He just gave a limited fighter a s%&t load of confidence to go after his ass harder in the rematch. Like Apollo creeds trainer says we dont need this kind of man in our life right now baby.

Posted May 4, 2014 9:33 am 


BEARS

floyd lost to what most consider a B level fighter. this is a terrible day for guys like PEEJ, prince, african prince, etc. they will have to go into excuse over drive til frauds next fight. lol

wheres te tumbo who over estimated fraud may? as if may would walk through pac.

based on this tape i think u have to favor both pac and bradley. fraud better fight better forgone conclusions. they definitely underestimated that CHERRY. its so awesome the breaks got put on the fraud circus by a cherry. i expect to see a match with someone like kahn and rematches with ortiz and guerrero or maybe even oscar. fraud is gonna have to stick to TOTAL CAB DRIVERS AND PIZZA DELIVERY GUYS. lol

or im not sure the remainder of his 3 fights will pay showtime off commensurately with what frauds being paid.

blue print is in. rush fraud mAy let your hands go. dont let him get an advantage on u in weight. dont let him have a catchweight or a rehydration clause.

Maidana is a bum with little boxing skill

Posted May 4, 2014 9:26 am

Floyd was landing just as many body shots if not more, and they were clean for the fans to see, even against the ropes.

Posted May 4, 2014 9:26 am

Floyd mouth and head was bleeding. He got battered by a b plus fighter. Draw or Marcos 7 rounds.

Posted May 4, 2014 9:25 am

Those stats include body shots I hope. They also reflect one fighter was way busier than the other. Kinda how calslappy won against Hopkins.

Posted May 4, 2014 9:23 am

Floyd did not get battered. Maidana threw a lot of punches. Many getting blocked or not landing at all. Still was a tough fight. Had Floyd winning 7 rounds to 5.

Posted May 4, 2014 9:14 am

Mayweather: 230 punches landed. 53 percent of them connected. Maidana: 220 punches landed out of over 800 punches for 22 percent. Yet, Maidana won? Keep dreaming haters. Floyd getting challenged doesn’t mean he lost.

Posted May 4, 2014 9:13 am

K.C you seem so idle, get something to do. Nothing Maidana brought to the table except street fight, he was trying knees, heads and hitting back of he head. I just dont understand that Floyd gives a good fight and he is still the loser. Hate is tough man.

Posted May 4, 2014 9:12 am

You expect people to read this article after the second statement? Mayweather won by a WIDE margin? Damage control at work. The guy got battered! I guarantee you he’s been peeing blood all night.
