Danny Garcia vs Amir Khan next and Mayweather vs Pacquioa. Then last fight should be Mayweather vs Maidana 2.

Why did Amir Khan beat Luis Collazo??? LC has no power. Just because you stop somebody who’s been getting stopped 3 X in a row — that doesn’t mean you can punch.

Stop Danny Garcia and you can hit. He can be reached but he’s tough.

How many big, tall, strong fast, and skilled heavies beat Tyson???

How about Buster Douglas… Lennox Lewis… and Evander Holyfield… They were all much taller than Tyson, even though Holy wasn’t so big (218) or tall at (6’2″)… They were all much better DEFENDERS than Tyson. Defense is big. Ali couldn’t defend himself any better than Tyson.

LL, EH, and BD were ALL OLDER than Tyson. They would have beaten him at any time. Tyson would have beaten Ali though. Different style. Much like Larry Holmes and Michael Spinks, Ali didn’t have a lot of punching power.

That’s why China-chinned Ken Norton beat the crap out of Ali. Ali couldn’t hurt him.

So basically, the once in a generation, hopefully this guy wins the genetic lottery and finds his way to a great teacher/trainer could beat Tyson at his best.

Gentlemen, such hateful comments towards me is really uncalled for. I am entitled to my opinion as you are also. Please don’t take my posts so serious. Relax and know that any of my comments are just my opinion. Please don’t get so emotionally riled up just because I see things a certain way. I thought Maidana won the fight. I dislike Floyd Mayweather’s character, and I admire Manny Pacquiao. Have a great day gentlemen.

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.

Martin “El Bruchador” Honorio

Yes, he did. One of the skills of the great ones like Floyd and Pacquiao is that they know how the fight will end up the moment they choose thier opponent and signed the contract. They know they will break thier opponents, how to control the fight. Early in the rounds, you can see Mayweather aiming for the body of Maidana… for five straight rounds, he continually lands a hard straight directly on the belly of Maidana. Now, unless Maidana is made of stone, he’s gonna feel those body punches. And yes, he did. It all add up. In the middle of round six, you can see that Maidana is not attacking aggresively as in the first round. those body punches had taken thier toll. Let’s remember that Floyd had power that makes even Canelo respect him. He got power that makes anyone encounters him thinking that he will knock them out. That’s what Maidana is thinking from 6 to 12 rounds… he did all that he could for the first five rounds and nothing happens…. and its six rounds …. he is weakened by Mayweather’s body punches and Mayweather is getting stronger. What are you gonna do? Survive, hit him if you have a chance. Mayweather knows all of this, that he had the advantage now. And kept peppering Maidana with punches from the outside. All in a plan.

Mayweather wants another fight where he can dominate, but put a little excitement to justify another payday. If he fought Pacquiao the same way, he would have certainly lost. It’s all about ppv bucks.

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.

the moment Floyd chose Maidana for his next opponent he was promising toe-to-toe action and both delivered. unless someone believes that Maidana was tanking-it, Mayweather employed his style to deal with the same if not improved Maidana that beat the crap out of Broner. Wtf are some pissin and moanin about now? that Floyd chose Maidana over Khan? at which point, ThaT would’ve become their primary gripe(?!).

Maidana is a walk forward slugger with little skill or game plan.

HH Best comment on here. Period. I have had the pleasure of watching Roger on several occasions taking people from Floyd to my 3 year old son (at the time) and he is a true genius.
I didn’t see him in the corner Saturday night and know he’s been in ill health for a couple of years.

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

Just seen the whole fight, chino make Floyd fight in the pocket, by cutting off the ring and alway putting the pressure on, I like his drop back on the brake and diving forward with body and head hooks. Floyd was frustrated with the Constance pressure,
Even from the very first rush bt china Floyd called out to the ref, want to stop the charging and body tounching.

Floyd look slow. China has no bad speed, and he made Floyd miss most of his counter and jab.
Same as porter do that jab and duck back Floyd counter, and counter back with his combo.

Chino show how to fight Floyd, porter is perfect for Floyd, and he would drop Floyd with the same style he has as chino that a 1-5 punch attack and dodge the counter and be inside .

Iam not sure maidana might be a slugger/ boxer now as he useing his jab to get in and then he slug his combo. Nice fight, and no Floyd didn’t choice to slug he had no choice. As chino would have hit him hard as he tried side slip as he was forced back over and over.more he could have been Koed.
It’s better to see the punches coming and face it head on.

Fighting Words

It seems when people see Mayweather fight, it is though they are seeing a boxing match for the first time. Mayweather said he wanted to give the fans what they wanted by not moving a lot. Anyone who believes that “I got some prime beach front property in Florida next to Tiger Woods for sale dirt cheap”. Mayweather could have ran all night, but when he stopped he would have had to punch, and with a pressure fighter that throw a lot of punches that is suicide. Case in point the Roberto Duran and SRL fight. SRL beat Duran to the punch in their 2 match, but in Mayweather fight, Miadana was beating Mayweather to the punch and was timing him better. Jabbing up and down, and then come in with combs which threw off Mayweather timing causing him to go to the ropes. At the end of the day, Mayweather days are numbered, given the opponents are in line to fight him next, Mayweather will lose his next fight, if he fights Khan or rematch Miadana. Miadana just made other fighter bold. We saw that when Mike Tyson could not intimidate anymore, fighters became bold and Tyson struggled. Same thing will happen with Mayweather, unless he pull a rabbit out of his hat, his so call adjustment skills where other fighters get star struck is a thing of the past.

He’s not the only one.. Mike Tyson and Kostya Tszyu loved guys who ran.. They felt very comfortable bombing away at runners.. With Maidana you have to stand your ground and rip him coming in.. You have to get under his looping shots, push him back, and tie him up. You can move strategically and box, which Floyd did a lot of … but you can’t run.
Posted May 4, 2014 8:30 pm

Interesting….A young Tyson when reviewing film, Mike Tyson Presents The Heavyweights (Documentary, 1988) youtube, said that the way to beat Marciano (according to D’Amato) is to go at him. To press him.

Floyd had his best success when he went on the attack.

but also remember, Marciano was known to take out great fighters that were fading out.

Floyd got exposed once again, as he did with Castillo, Cotto and Del hoya. Any good fighter who can effectively cut off the ring and throw alot of punches can beat him.
Posted May 4, 2014 9:39 pm

Except he knocked out Hatton, beat Cotto and Oscar and even though people debate the first Castillo fight, he certainly beat him in the rematch. But yes, there is always a style/fighter that can cause him concern and up the stakes in beating him.
Like Roberto Duran. His style, skills, I.Q. and ferocity would be hell.

A lot goes into winning and losing.

Is every pressure fighter going to beat Ali? NO.

Is every tall boxer that fights back at Tyson going to win? NO

Is every counter-puncher going to beat Pac? NO

list goes on and on. Sometimes “styles make fights” holds true and sometimes it doesn’t. A lot goes into it. Style, the fighter, timing, conditions, etc.

This pundit says.., “Aside from Castillo way back in the day, there has not been a challenger that made Floyd work harder than a routine sparring session.”

Floyd beat Castillo with great ease and with one arm.. Mayweather was fighting with a torn rotator cuff but won by 4 or 5 points on ALL SCORECARDS!!!!! That’s an easy UD, so Castillo was a long way from winning that fight.

Cotto, De La Hoya, and Judah certainly gave Floyd much tougher fights than Castillo did…regardless of what the scores were for those fight … Cotto busted Floyd up… Judah decked Floyd… and Oscar is the only guy who won a score from a judge off Floyd in Floyd’s whole career.

Canelo was weight drained… so he couldn’t do anything but stand there.

Floyd had to fight the way he did versus Maidana.. Marcos loves runners.. If you start running Marcos starts swinging.. He’ll cut you down.. Marcos’s swings will nail a runner.. He’s not a hard puncher like Matthysse, but the sheer volume will get anyone who runs.

He’s not the only one.. Mike Tyson and Kostya Tszyu loved guys who ran.. They felt very comfortable bombing away at runners.. With Maidana you have to stand your ground and rip him coming in.. You have to get under his looping shots, push him back, and tie him up. You can move strategically and box, which Floyd did a lot of … but you can’t run.

Got to say Floyd is chatting bull about giving the fans what they wanted. He had no choice as MM was all over him like a rash. Then he trash talked about it being a wrestling match in the post fight. Sore winner. It was a much closer fight then the judges had. Hate to say it but kind of redeems Broners loss and ultimately shows how tough MM is. The man is a caveman!

Posted May 4, 2014 8:17 pm

Floyd looked worried as soon as he entered the ring-he did not know what he was in store for.MM is a boxer-puncher-brawler, not a fighter like Floyd who rarely fights, avoids getting hit, and is elusive in the ring. He had no choice but to go toe to toe with Maidana or MM would have floored him! I even admit Floyd can brawl and its about time he finally fought like a man instead of his cowardly style.

Floyd proved that he’s a great fighter. Great fighters adjust when the chips are down and find a way to win. I had Floyd winning by three rounds after the fight. Respect to Maidana for making it entertaining and giving himself a chance. Perhaps he’ll get the rematch. But if it happens, Floyd is NOT going to fight against the ropes again, now that he realized he could keep the fight in the center of the ring and dominate like many of his other fights. Floyd Sr. told Jr. to stay off the ropes. Floyd will be ready next time.

I have the first 5 rounds to Maidana and thought Floyd was pretty much done but from the 6th on he pretty much did as he does…boxed from the outside and took advantage of the fact Maidana wasn’t coming with the same intensity or consistency…which if he had of he would have won hands down. Have to tip your hat to Floyd, he was under pressure but still found enough to get back in the fight.

Maidanas style is unpredictable so Floyd was slightly confused with this street fighter.

True. I think that he is trying to say is that Maidana actually has some success with it. Neither Oscar nor Cotto made Floyd looked worried. He looked relaxed, and landed, well, pretty much at will. Not with Maidana tho….

Cotto pressed Floyd, De La Hoya pressed him right down the stretch, Floyd had to many skills and was to quick and got past both as we know but Cotto and De La Hoya had their moments. A little research goes a long way when writing about things for public fare.
