Fight Aficianado, you say “this thesis of yours is proven” that said it should
Be eas for you to prove!! Ok
So do it? Or are you gonna sit around and offer your word on this nonsense? Again you can’t win a boxing related discussion so you are trapped making false allegations that cannot support any of the points you wanna peddle on the site..#illogica#stalling

flydog, that idiot and his two sons work for Al Haymon. They are always walking out with boxers mouthing to themselves it appears, yet acting as if they are talking to the fighters. They hang around the fighter’s corners before and after the fights, as if they are needed, and they are always sticking thier heads in the interview camera shots and talking at the boxers but not to them….it bothers me that they leech off the boxing element.

Mayweather may choose to fight The MMA Raptor again. Again, Mayweather will have to deal with the Flintstone Arm Lock, along with The Bam Bam Rainbow downward Punches to the BACK of the head! Lets not forget about the T-Rex Knees to the head/chest & the Bedrock Headbutts!! King “SKILZ” Mayweather dealt with an Octopus/Jiu Jit Su Cave Warrior in MMA Maidana!! FAAAR from a punching bag MMA came to wrestle & STRIKE Mayweather against the ropes in hopes of eventually pinning him down in a “submission” hold. King Cave FORGOT he was in a BOXING match, when they ended up in the middle of the ring – thats when Mayweather had to REMIND him!! Hopefully this time around Mayweather realizes he can NEVER please HATERS and fights his own fight. The Raptor rode horses & shot his guns at the range as a means of maverick “training” for the fight – it didnt work! Wildman Maidana should try out for MMA or even the WWF – he’d be GREAT!!!!

By the way Floyd should bypass Maidana and take on the #1 Fighter in Argentina. Sergio Martinez for the MW Championship of the World. That would be his 6th Division Championship and his 12th CHAMP in his last 14 Fights. WOW!!!!!

I remember when Tark was HUGE on Khan after he beat Judah!! He discussed how Khans performance stopping Zab was so much superior to FMJ’s not stopping to note Floyd faced Judah BEFORE he became a steppingstone fighter unlike Khan who faced him after beatings by Clottey and Cotto.. Tark was ready to give birth to Canelos children before Mayweather took him to school NOW he is totally handing Lara a win over Canelo and claiming Floyd’s “ducking”
Lara..Angulo was shopworn when both Canelo and Lara faced him, but Alvarez walked thru his shots like spit balls while Lara had to take a couple 10 counts before he got the job done to his credit… I depise a vetted old
Fighter being derided because of an upstart who has spent little time at the World Class level… When is the last time Floyd faced a guy who was not a Champion or coming off a huge win?? Lara beats Trout coming off a loss and Tark anoints him the second coming of Christ… Serious amateur/bandwagon analysis by this lowly dog..

Floyd Mayweather is 37 years old winner of 46 fights with no losses, 22 World Championship fights NO LOSSES, Defeated HOFERS like ODH, Mosley, Cotto, Marquez and Hernandez no losses, World Titles in 5 weight classes no losses, 4 lineal titles NO LOSSES, Currently Unified Champ 147 and 154 no losses.. How can ANY single bout change his legacy of achievement much at this point? Certainly NOT Shawn (recently a sparring partner) Porter or Lara? Even Manny is a diminished asset after he let Marquez who Mayweather humiliated after a 21 month layoff knock him cold…95%’of the FMJ story has been told and the NY TIMES says it’s a best seller

Tark says “Floyd won’t fight anyone good” REALLY Tark? You were RAVING about Cotto and Canelo before Mayweather handled them NOW they are “no good” you keep discussing Porter and Lara, what makes Porter so good please explain (you called him a great boxer the other day) HAHAHA!! ??? As for Lara you must be VERY certain he is gonna take care of Canelo with ease? What if Canelo wins Tark is he then “good again”
And Mayweather can have credit restored? You are really ridiculous
And we all know that Mayweathers huge guarantees prevent him from facing guys who are not sellable, as for PAC Man call me when TR and GBP do a SINGLE fight! When
Was the last one? 5 years
Idiot

Posted May 22, 2014 10:16 am

It’s ridiculous that mopes think “Floyd needs to prove himself” against guys that never have to prove that much themselves absent PAC who is an ATG in his own right..Lara beat Trout, who was defeated by Canelo, who Floyd beat when he was considered the BEST 154 pounder in the world..
How did Trout become someone of note? He beat Cotto who Mayweather had defeated the fight PRIOR, handing him his first loss at 154, Lara is a really good fighter but is being oversold based on beating the power deficient Trout, he was not looking so special when Angulo was putting him down…Porter is a tough, scrappy guy and beating the inconsistent Alexander was a good win and going to town on Paulie was solid but this hardly qualifies as greatness, hoe much cred would FMJ get for beating Alexander and Malignaggi if he cannot get respect from detractors for beating Cotto, And Canelo? The strategy is just throw out a barrage of names at an aging fighter hoping Father Time takes over which he usually does..

“Floyd won’t fight Lara… Won’t fight Porter… Won’t fight Pacquiao*” first of all TARK, Lara is a B-class middleweight barely worthy of challenging Canelo who Floyd DID face and defeat. Porter is untested and unproven, i.e., UNworthy. meanwhile, Floyd also faced DLH and Hatton FIRST at no bullsh@t catchweights followed by Marquez, Ortiz, Guerrero, Cotto, and Maidana the worthiest welter contender of all. Pacquiao* won’t dare mention the names of ANY of those fighters along with Garcia, Mathysse, Maidana, Porter, Thurman, or even Herrera who would take Pacquiao* to boxing school. Face It: Quackuiao* is a contrived promotional fraud and ducker who lacks legitimate greatness, i.e., how many more f’n times do you insist on watching Punkuiao* outBoxed and outPunched by a 40-something Marquez or once again sabotage an already undeserved showdown v. Mayweather? after all and according to you, Lara and Porter are available(?). as well as Garcia, Thurman, Maidana, or even Herrera who has the style that Punkuiao* would NEVER risk facing.

Floyd has 3 more fights to go, sounds like he’s having second thoughts about Maidana II. But if one of those 3 fights isn’t PacRoid his legacy will never be complete in my opinion.

“CLASSIC PED BICEP IF EVER I HAVE SEEN ONE , LET ALONE FOR A 37 YEAR OLD MAN” … LMFAO

I had bigger biceps than that at 37. Bigger forearms, wrists, triceps, and hands too. And I never even took vitamin pills because I didn’t want to take anything unnatural…

And in those days PEDs were legal. Athletes could legally take steroids and other PEDs if they wanted … but quite a few athletes didn’t want to take them. They didn’t want to risk hurting their bodies with unregulated junk products that they knew little or nothing about.

Floyd doesn’t want to take them.

Having outstanding musculature doesn’t mean you’re on PEDs. It usually means you’re a gym rat. Hershal Walker didn’t even lift weigths ever in his life… He did pushups, chinups, situps, back extensions, and the like… He worked out like a freakin’ maniac.

Trying to sell a version of Manny that no longer exists is comedy, he is NOT the whirling dervish he used to be.. He is still a GREAT fighter but his liabilities have caught up to him, defensive lapses etc.. People are raving about the Bradley fight, I thought he did good but NOT great against a guy who despite his toughness cannot punch… Dopes are saying ” Maidana gave Floyd a hard night so Manny can win” silly, Maidana LOST and he is 20 pounds heavier and a bigger hitter than PAC at the weight and he is more comfortable with his chin…Manny is somewhat gun shy, his killer instinct is not there the way it used to be.. He can and has been subdued most notably by Marquez

Where it all went wrong for Oscar De La Fishnets

Recounting his rise to the top of the boxing world and his fall from grace in an ego-busting photo scandal, Oscar De La Hoya is confessing the truth.
Speaking about the claims of stripper Milana Dravnel, as well as his own substance abuse and infidelity, the retired boxer has bared it all.
It has been nearly four years since photos purportedly of the former champ clad in fishnets, panties and high heels were splashed online.

Struggles: An emotional Oscar De La Hoya admitted battling with alcohol and cocaine, as well as cheating on his wife, in an interview with Univision
At the time, Mr De La Hoya’s handlers brushed off the photos as bad Photoshop jobs and his accuser as a money-grubber.
But in a tell-all interview this week, the former welterweight champ revealed: ‘It was me.’
In the interview with Univision, the former welterweight champion spilled the details of his marital, drug and alcohol problems.
Known as ‘The Golden Boy,’ Mr De La Hoya became the subject of the photo scandal in 2007 when Ms Dravnel, who claimed he had cheated on his wife with her and posted the embarrassing images on the internet.
At the time, the De La Hoya camp claimed it wasn’t him in the photos and that the stripper was ‘out for money.’
The Golden Boy’s legal team even brought in their own ‘photo expert,’ who said the photos were a computer-generated forgery.
His spokeswoman said of the photos: ‘His head’s too small and it doesn’t even look like his body.’

Feminine side: In 2007, De La Hoya was the subject of a photo scandal when a stripper who claimed he cheated on his wife with her made these images public
De La Hoya reportedly hired a team of lawyers, a PR firm and business associates to discredit Ms Dravnel and goad her into retracting her story.
But in the interview with the Spanish-language network, which aired Tuesday night, the troubled pugilist revealed the truth.
‘Let me to tell you, yes, yes, it was me,’ he said.
TheSmokingGun.com reported that in June 2008, Ms Dravnel settled a federal lawsuit she brought against Mr De La Hoya.
Details of the settlement were never revealed as they signed confidentiality agreements, the website reported.

Costume party: Milana Dravnel, who claimed Oscar De La Hoya cheated on his wife with her, allegedly leaked several embarrassing images on the internet
During the candid interview, an emotional De La Hoya revealed his battle with alcohol and drugs, and said he even contemplated suicide.
‘Rock bottom was recently,’ De La Hoya said. ‘Within a couple of years, just thinking if my life was even worth it.
‘I don’t have the strength, I don’t have the courage to take my own life but I was thinking about it.
‘My drug of choice was cocaine and alcohol. Cocaine was recent. The last two years. And I depended more in the alcohol than the cocaine.’
He said he has been clean and sober for three months after going to rehab and attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

He also spoke of his transgressions, saying he had been unfaithful to his wife of 10 years, and that they temporarily separated.

Mr De La Hoya has two kids with Millie Coretjer, whom he married in 2001.
He also has a daughter with former beauty queen and Playboy model Shanna Moakler.
Mr De La Hoya retired from boxing in 2009 after a 16-year career that won him 10 world titles in six divisions.
His final match was a punishment at the hands of Manny Pacquiao, and De La Hoya’s corner stopped the first after the eighth round.

Yho no credit is given to TBE for beating a young, strong, undefeated Champion in Canelo.

Funny how Canelo himself has been a gentlemen about his loss and never ever came up with an excuse for losing to the P4P king.

Say what you want about Floyd Mayweather; records are there to be seen by all….no wonder this boy is the highest paid athlete in the world.

Canelo Alvarez has NEVER made excuses for his loss but then again why should he when internet LAMES like Tark are there to clean up the mess for him? Alvarez did what he was supposed to and took losing to an ATG as a learning experience and is moving forward with his career, Mayweather was to fast, slick and experienced for him.. No shame is losing to a HOFER unless you are Tark, then the excuses gotta fly

Tark, numbers don’t lie CLEARLY Mayweather was NOT bigger than Maidana nor Canelo whom he spotted 17-19 pounds respectively the night of the bout… Saying he was a welter longer means what? Hatton swore he was “the bigger man” against Pacquaio and how did that turn out… Reality is that Maidana and Canelo had CLEAR advantages in body mass fight night that they could not use to win because Mayweather is the better fighter you CREEP/EXCUSE MACHINE Maidana was 161 fight night against Broner, he was plenty acclimated ton the weight… STOP THE EXCUSES, you don’t train Maidana nor Canelo and you NEVER will..

Peej. Its goes even deeper than that. most are the same who argued that cottos catch with pac had no bearing on the outcome. and they noted how cotto said it had no bearing. thats fine. i like pac too. and i think it was a very good win for pac. but then floyd does and it all of the sudden its the crime of the century. a drain and a discredited win. i understand floyd said he didnt do catchweights and whatever. well if its ok for pac. then should be fine for floyd too. and since it was argued it had no effect on cotto how can you say it did for canelo? cotto never returned to 147 after that. yet canelo is still doing 154-155. so how can these guys say he cant make it anymore and that he was 15lbs over at 30 days? who cares?

@anon. i dont care what canelo does. dont care how much weight he has to cut in 30 days. how he handles his weight is his business. if its too much of a problem for him then move. but he made 155 after floyd and is looking at 154 again. cotto made his catch and never fought at welter again. people defended the cotto catch feverishly. “cotto even said himself it didnt matter and had no effect”. yet these people wanna point a finger at floyd and call him a hypocrite. whos a bigger hypocrit. someone who defends someones actions and says its no big deal then whines when someone else does it? or someone who says its bs but has people tell him it doesnt matter when someone else does it and has no effect so he does it himself? people wanna discredit floyds win and give pac his props for his…then they wanna call floyd a hypocrit to boot. its unreal really. it cant be both

i want to know your opinion, if ever pac and d.garcia at 140 who will win? what’
s the possible betting odds?

Posted May 20, 2014 10:03 pm 


TARK

Sredmond says.., “If Floyd booked a fight against Marquez next he would be attacked because he is held to a crazy standard due to his skills and excellence, his opponents as of late have been YOUNGER, BIGGER” … LMFAO!!! What a pile of BS.

Floyd even told interviewers, “I’m bigger than Marcos Maidana. I’ve been a welterweight for 10 years and Marcos just came up.”

Canelo WAS bigger but weight drained at 152 — so he was weak as a kitten.. Saul can’t even make 154.. Floyd would have beaten him anyway because Saul was only 22 when that fight was signed… Alvarez wasn’t mature and will be a much better fighter in 7 years when he reaches his peak… Klitschko is 38, and says he’s better than ever after 18 years of pro experience and 200 amateur fights… That experience gives you mastery.

Floyd is at his best right now with all the experience he has but he didn’t train well for Maidana. He looked slow like in the Cotto fight. He wasn’t at his best. The fast Floyd will be back for Khan.

Marquez had a sh!t strength trainer and was drinking his own pee when Floyd fought him.. That fight counts for ZERO.. Marquez had no speed, strength, or anything to be a welterweight until he met Angel Heredia.

Lara, so he could beat Mayweather, Khan can beat Mayweather better compared to Lara, but it is Pacquiao, that’s the fight.

Posted May 20, 2014 9:35 pm 


TARK

Sredmond…, You’re an idiot — and a Floyd head sucker.

I am not saying Lara is the greatest… He just does extremely well against slick boxers… such as Austin Trout—a guy who boxed Miguel Cotto with greater finesse than Floyd did—but couldn’t win a single round off Lara.

In fact…Lara might prove too quick and slick for Mayweather — and with his confounding southpaw style I predict Floyd won’t go anywhere near Lara until after he’s retired.

Pacquiao will go after Mayweather if they fight, Mayweather knows that, that is the point, he won’t fight Pacquiao, it is a very difficult fight, so choose some other fighter for good money, not Pacquiao for double money when you will lose the 0.

Doesn’t matter who Floyd fights, he will out class and out box them for 12 rounds. He will stop trying to become a fighter and just box. Kahn looks to be out of the running for the next fight because of his faith. Wonder who has the next golden wonka ticket?

Mannys a great fighter but he’s far from a boogeyman, the guy was on his seat for a year recovering from a KO these are not concerns for FMJ, besides Mannynis not a KO threat, Marquez 2x, Bradley 2x, Rios, Mosley, Margo and Clottey have proved that.

If Floyd booked a fight against Marquez next he would be attacked because he is held to a crazy standard due to his skills and excellence, his opponents as of late have been YOUNGER, BIGGER and coming off their best wins YET that’s not enough for the whiners who wanna see a loss and nothing will suffice..

Floyd is so great that any fight where an opponent troubles him, instantly means that opponent beat him. Floyd is so great that he must fight guys 20 or more pounds heavier than him or he’s not challenging himself. Floyd is so great, that his critics are demanding he fight full-blown middleweights at the twilight of his career. Floyd is so great, professional boxers have to cheat in various ways, just to have a small chance of beating him. Floyd is so great, critics swear they hate him, but are the first ones in line to spend their hard earn money to see his next fight. Floyd is so great, he keeps breaking PPV and Venue records, no matter who he fights. Floyd’s legend will be very strong after he retires.

Mayweather did not lose the Maidana fight nor Castillo the fact they were closer that the usual Mayweather bouts grossly exaggerates the effectiveness of these 2 opponents.. Maidana was getting badly outboxed the last 4 rounds and in boxing CLEAN headshots rule the day, he was rewarded for his aggression but the boy was missing like crazy and a keen eye did not need Compubox to tell me that one..

boxerpuncher my friend, I’m not sold out Thurman. He hasn’t faced any top quality fighters. Soto Karass was as tough as always, but he’s more of a trial horse. And Karass almost had him out cold. I think Porter, Bradley, Pacquiao, Floyd and other guys beat him. As far as Manny Pacquiao, goes, I believe he still has all the tools to beat anyone. His new contract and his tax problems have been resolved, which should give him the time to focus totally and allow him to put together a string of amazing performances. We’ll see what’s next.

@boxerpuncher I don’t agree that Manny looked shot or particularly gassed in the Bradley rematch. I think that’s revisionist garbage and that you’re trying to put unnecessary negative spin on the fight. After the fourth round, Manny took charge against highly rated P4P Tim Bradley who was officially an undefeated boxer up until April 2014,…. but Pacquiao really beat him both times. If it would be so easy for Mayweather to beat Pacquiao and considering both men probably just have a few bouts left, Floyd should face the man and show us all. Why has ‘Money’ been so reluctant these last few years? Maybe he thinks he would have had problems with Manny? He has to protect his 0 maybe, hmmmm?…..

Really don’t want to see this fight same as jmm 5 both are a few fight from retirement why waste 1/2 year on a fight we know who will win. Both need 7-9 round or a ko to win. The champ need a sure lost as he spell Money invested already need to be told its off.

According to history, boxing has ups and downs. Once Floyd and Pac are gone, a new breed of fighters that are “Super-Stars” eventually come about. It’s worked so far. If it stops sometime in the future, maybe. But so far, boxing rebounds after a certain amount of time.

Boxing was supposed to die after Ali but we got Duran, Leonard, Hearns in the smaller weight classes to keep it alive. HW division wasn’t so hot even with Larry Holmes around. But then came MIKE TYSON to start it up again. World Wide Fame. Much bigger than Pac and Floyd or anybody around. You had Chavez, Oscar, Tito, etc. Then later Floyd and Pac.
Maybe, just maybe, we are due for a Super-Star HW.
Some may argue Wlad is but he hasn’t impacted the American market and many other markets around the World like Tyson and Ali did.

@Jimmy He looked like a shell of his former self. Up until that fight, I’ve never seen Manny winded. Bradley is all heart and determination. He’s never been a virtuoso in the ring. Bradley self determination and strong self belief got him through fights. He’s got decent boxing skills, and decent defense. The p4p list is an objective list, btw. Everyone has there own p4p list. The p4p list has lost alot of crediblity, especially with guys like Andre Ward on it. A man who only fights at super middle weight and rarely, if at all, leaves Oakland to fight. He’s a skilled fighter, but p4p at what? No one really knows how good, he really is. That list was originally intended for fighters the likes of Sugar Ray Robinson, fighters so far ahead of there time that calling them “champ” was just not enough. Look it up, find the intended meaning of what a p4p really is. Mayweather is definitely on my p4p. Manny went bye bye, when he was put to sleep by Marquez.

If you can fight at 160, 168, should you be fighting guys that weigh 150 on fight-night? Seriously?

If you don’t fight in the division, you can’t be recognized as a legit opponent.

And Floyd could always just give up the belt if he still has one at jrMW. Others have done it. Of course, since its Floyd, he won’t get off so easy because there is a lot of expectations and hate. Double-Standard.

A GGG fight would be suicide for Floyd. Even if Floyd blocks Gennady’s punches, I feel it would still go through his gaurd. That fight will probably never happen. If it did it would a great fight for the fans but a nightmare for Floyd.

GGG is the MW Champion of the World. He is to big, skilled, powerful, young, talented for Floyd to face. It’s one thing to be big, it’s another to have all the attributes that GGG has and BIG.

It’s really to much to ask for a Man that weighs about 150 on fight-night.

Plus, GGG isn’t a Super-Star so we aren’t going to be talking about huge numbers. Floyd would have to pull the weight of the fight again and it would probably top out at around 1 million or so. It’s not like GGG looks like a killer. He looks like a school-boy. And who do you make your sales to? Casual fans. They won’t buy into it.

@Hecdog Sorry bro, but I have to disagree with you on some points. Keith Thurman is not a one dimensional fighter. He proved that against Soto-Karas. He hit Jesus in the first or second round with his money punch. When his man didn’t go down, he adjusted. He turned boxer puncher, to soften his guy up. Thurman is not a hype job. He’s got a good ring IQ. At this stage, Manny looked shot in the last fight with Bradley. He looked slow, he was flat footed and even appeared gassed in several rounds. Lucky for him Bradley gassed, whilst trying to go for a knockout. Floyd may be slowing down, but even a slipping Mayweather would outclass Manny. In there primes, Floyd would of outboxed Manny and made him look ordinary. Which is why I never understood why Floyd just didn’t take the fight. Manny’s history shows, he has always had problems with guys that can move. Boxers are Manny’s kryptonite.

Floyd is a great boxer skill wise, but I wish he would test himself more. Fight out of MGM and be considered an underdog in match for once(like when he fought Corrales).If everyone knows you are going to beat your opponent then what are you really proving?

Look for Mayweather-Maidana II or Mayweather-Khan in September. Manny is, of course, the obvious and glaring choice, but with Floyd babysitting his cosmetic 0, he is extremely wary of taking on the Pacman…

Floyd Mayweather is on the way out. Maidana beat him around the ring like a rag doll, and the signs of age clearly showed (Unlike Ped Man Marquez whom uses the rejuvenating Hereida Mix). His timing was gone. He looked much slower. His defense was shattered. Floyd Mayweather showed us why he wanted no part of the Legendary Manny Pacquiao. Now Mayweather and his dummies are trying to get in those last 3 fights, and if those fights happen in Las Vegas he has little chance of losing unless he fights the legendary Manny Pacquiao whom would take the judges out of the equation by stopping Floyd Mayweather. Other possible opponents like Khan, Garcia and Thurman even in Floyd’s decline wouldn’t beat him. Khan fights like an amateur and keeps his head up in the air too much. His chin as we all know is made of glass. Thurman has a punchers chance and that’s all. He’s been given way too much credit for doing nothing. He has fought no one. He continually gets rocked by any solid punch, and he has basic boxing skills. I am not impressed by Thurman at all. There are only two fighters out there that will beat Mayweather decisively. Shawn Porter because of his youth speed, power, stamina and most importantly his experience training with the greatest fighter of all time, Manny Pacquiao. Porter is the real deal. I see a unanimous one sided beating in this fight with Porter making Floyd Maywether look old as terry Norris did to Sugar Ray Robinson. The other fighter that would obviously beat Floyd is none other than the only 8 division boxing champion in history, Manny Pacquiao. At age 35 Manny Pacquiao is still regarded by most boxing observers as the greatest fighter of all time. He is the fighter that has a style that can’t be beaten on a one fight basis. Manny’s return to glory was incredible to see as he destroyed a young, strong Brandon Rios, a former champion. His classic and memorable boxing exhibition will be hailed for centuries. Manny then followed that colossal victory by dominating a young, strong, unbeaten Timothy Bradley. Floyd Mayweather’s career will be marred by his fear of fighting Manny Pacquiao. Floyd’s career will be remembered more by what he failed to do and not what he did. No one can ever say Manny Pacquiao ducked or avoided anyone. This is the main reason he is so loved, respected, honored, admired, cherished and adored. A fighter in the true sense of the word. The question remains, will Floyd Mayweather ever fight Manny Pacquiao? I highly doubt it. And this is why no matter who Floyd fights next, the fans will have no interest. The miserable PPV numbers in the Maidana fight clearly show Floyd’s decline even more so out of the ring because unless there is a name with a big fan base, Floyd Mayweather doesn’t draw, which leads to the obvious when it comes to taking money between these two if the fight were to ever happen. Manny Pacquiao should take no less than 70% and Floyd should take 30%. I’ve been telling anyone that would listen that Manny far out draws all boxers world wide. Yes, there are millions of fans around the globe that can”t afford the telecast and never are accounted for. Let’s take Floyd to Macau China and see what he draws. Fans must understand Manny popularity world wide. Congressman, future President, Actor, Singer, Model, Only 8 Division Boxing Champion in boxing history, clothing designer, Bible Study Teacher and so much more. Manny Pacquiao has been the front page picture of boxing for over 10 years. He has brought families together and has elevated boxing to a level never seen before. Manny Pacquiao is very different than fighters like Mayweather and Marquez both of whom have lost respectability in the fans eyes. Both are fearful of fighting Manny Pacquiao. Floyd is simply plain scared for his health and Marquez isn’t confident that he can get Angel Hereida to put together the right nutritional mix and get away with it. Manny Pacquiao stands head and shoulders above them both. A legend that needs no introduction. Trust me, boxing will never be the same once Manny Pacquiao retires. This man carried his country and the sport of boxing on his shoulders. Manny is the best!

As far as Floyd saying he fought in the pocket, phone booth style, as being part of his plan. That’s bull $hit too. He fought like that because he had no choice. If they rematch it will be the same fight, and maybe even a tougher fight for Floyd. Maidana’s not gonna wait for Floyd. He’s gonna be in his chest all night long. He and Garcia both know, no way to beat Floyd in a boxing match. te tumbo is right. Maidana improves with each fight. This isn’t the same Marcos that fought Khan or Alexander.

In a business decision, I don’t believe Mayweather fights Porter or Thurman. Way to dangerous, not enough reward. Thurman says it himself, “He’s got an 0 and is not afraid to let it go”. That’s a dangerous fighter for anyone. Porter would bum rush him like he did two Paulie. Why? Because Floyd doesn’t have knock out power at those weights either. Money wise, it’s either another Canelo fight, or rematch with Maidana. Remember folks, this is his farewell run. He’s gonna pad his pockets as much as he can in the next few fights and then hang em up.

Floyd took the worse of the beating against Chino. He was throwing weak arm punches that look pretty but had no effect on Chino. Chino also won the battle for ring generalship throughout the fight. Chino landed just as many punches while throwing twice as many. Close fight but the one thing that was clear is Floyd didn’t do enough to win thr best he did was get it to a draw. After now benefiting from 2 gift decisions the 0 has no substance.

“Throwing a jab does not equate with being a true boxer . . .” once again, you need to review and study the videotape, son. otherwise, Maidana doesn’t just “throw” a jab. he scores the jab with expert timing and crude but thudding precision. so his delivery is not particularly fluid or flashy but he scores, and punishes, and earns respect even in a “loss”.

Posted May 20, 2014 11:26 am

“Maidana should go a make a name for himself . . .” you need to brush up on your recent boxing history. otherwise, Marcos “Epic” Maidana has compiled an impressive body-of-work since his comeback v. the previously anointed Ortiz. he doesn’t quit and continues to demonstrate capacity for improvement in every bout. IMO, his performance v. a healthy Mayweather exceeds Castillo’s and is the only unofficial loss on Floyd’s record.

Maidana was reborn in that bout and employed what must be classified as an expert jab v.

i scored this bout for Maidana who built an insurmountable lead during the first six rounds. Mayweather began to gradually pry control of the bout from Maidana but never seized full control and easily lost a couple of the final six rounds. bottomline, it’s very difficult if not impossible to score 7 rounds for Floyd in this bout. a rematch is warranted and i think it will be Maidana who improves on his performance and Floyd will need to compete for control form the opening bell. that is the only improvement i can see him making in a rematch. it’s not necessarily the bout i want to see but fair-is-fair and Maidana earned a rematch and remains the worthiest contender to Floyd’s titles.

@Zuks In a close fight, it matters bro. Most judges don’t just score on punching alone, but also on effective aggressiveness. If one fighter is languishing on the ropes throwing one or two punches at a time while the other fighter is making the fight and staying busy, in a close round, 9 times out of 10 the judges score for the busier fighter. That my friend is part of the criteria in scoring fights, “Effective Aggressiveness”. The numbers don’t lie either. This was a damn close fight. Look it up for yourself. Watch the fight with the volume turned down. It could of gone either way. That’s the point I was trying to make.

Any elite fighter is within their right to refuse 40M when someone with the ethical standards of a snake refuse to offer any part of the ppv sales! Minus the canelo fight, Pacs and floyds ppv numbers are extremely similar, but ole “honest, ” “reasonable,” and “integrity” minded floyd would have you believe he deserves 80% even before ppv numbers are factored. During Oscars time, he was the only elite fighter known. However, today, Pac is one of two elite fighters but Floyd doesn’t want to see it that way.

Pacquiao does not have Cotto’s bulk or size to even push Floyd to the ropes, he is gonna be eating jabs and getting capped by straight right hands as the night wears on…Pac of 2009 would have made a better bout of it and still lost but this version stands to get badly humiliated…

“reality,” you will be glad to know you are in the minority of those who feel floyd deserved a unanimous decision. The majority saw it differently. At best, it should have been a draw. Floyd was not dominating as he did against Canelo, who seemed to be taking it easy on Floyd. At worst, Floyd by UD, which is totally unrealistic. If Chino fought dirty, then Floyd certainly wasn’t too far behind. He’s a master of using his elbows and forearms in subtle ways to avoid a penalty. Most times however, he’s blatant and still no points are ever deducted. He too is a dirty fighter.

3. Mayweather: $45 million vs Cotto

Plus, if Pacquiao thinks he can beat Mayweather, he’ll make even more if he can beat him and then lure him into a rematch.

Floyds career high pay was due to fighting Canelo. Latest estimates state his ppv numbers against maidana are anemic at best compared to fighting Canelo. So you see, fans are NOT going to pay merely because its floyd fighting. The fact he couldn’t break 900K with maidana speaks to the false belief that floyd sells more than 1.2M each time out. With has-been guerrero it was 850K…along comes canelo and makes the sales what they actually were, over 2M, followed by maidana, which then took a nose dive below 900K. Anyone still under the assumption floyd is box office?

The rematch would make more money than any other fight Floyd takes that’s not Pacman, Amir Khan, Cotto. or Canelo….. first off Maidana is now getting more popular after having beaten Broner and giving Floyd problems, second the first fight was close, third he has mad fans in Argentina.. if not most of the country rooting for him… he has fans and this fight makes sense…

Floyd should face him again and then Pacman… but Mayweather and Arum are too greedy to make it happen…. I really hope Pacquaio doesn’t resign to Top Rank.. he would be an idiot to straight sign with them… he should weigh his options or promote hismelf liek Cotto was doing….

There will not be a rematch with Maidana now, because there is not enough money in that match. Most people think Floyd had a hard time because he have declined. That is not so. It is Maidana who have improved a lot. He is a lot better now than when he struggled and lost to Khan. When Mayweather have dominated another top opponent and Maidana have destroyed another – then there will be a rematch and then it will be a lot more money in it.

Alex Ariza, Michael Koncz and Freddie Roach are all on record saying Pacquiao has turned down the $40 million flat fee since January 2012… somehow I doubt Manny would turn down $40 million for one nights work considering he’s never actually made more than $30 million for one nights work… Bob Arum has been holding this fight up for years now and it has to stop.

@flydog That’s Sam Watson, he’s with Al Haymon and crew. Al Haymon and crew is the match maker for 90% of all these fights we watch.

Can anyone tell me who the fellow in the blue t-shirt is under Floyd’s right arm in the photo? I see him all over boxing…

Oh and to add. I scored the closer rounds for Chino, because he was the busier fighter. Effective aggressiveness.

I don’t think Maidana was robbed, but the scoring was ridiculous! That’s what I feel robbed about. 117 to 111 and 116 to 112!!??? What!? Bull $hit! Statistically speaking those scores were a load of bull poop.(Mayweather – 230/426 punches landed vs punches thrown … Maidana – 221/858) Maidana over doubled Floyd’s output and landed nearly as many punches! C’mon! That my friends is a very, very close fight. F’n judges … that’s whats killing boxing. Scoring the fight looked even closer, without the numbers from above. I had Maidana by 1 point. But thats just it, it could of gone either way. But the blind judges were obviously watching another fight. Blatant BS ..

Judging by how soon he announced fighting again this year, my guess would be a Maidana rematch also. It works out for Floyd in two ways. 1. Floyd won’t give Maidana and his critics the blood and guts fight of the first outing. Look for Floyd to display his boxing skilsl even more and possibly stop Maidana late. Even if Floyd wasn’t holding back in the first fight, Floyd has shown that he got used to Maidana’s style and adapted enough to win. Maidana only knows to go to war and won’t have an ace up his sleeve. 2. Floyd beating Maidana again will only leave two opponents left before his Showtime contract is up and he can retire clean. Those two opponents can be two quick pay days on easy wins. Beating a tough cookie like Maidana will give him riding in the sun status.
