Wonderful… Don’t bother watching it then… It’ll bore your ass off.

Floyd would have won the fight anywhere. But in his last two fights he drew judges who didn’t see him winning.

So he drew judges for the Canelo fight and the Maidana fight who didn’t see him winning.

So how much did you have Canelo beating Floyd by Hecdog??? Just curious

Floyd will start a lot faster this time… and he’ll fight a lot harder… Maidana is a raw swinger. MM never KO’s top-line fighters. There is no fear of Maidana’s punching power of boxing ability so Floyd thought it was going to be a walk in the park.

But the thing MM has is toughness. He absorbs punches like Mike McCallum

Julian Jackson hit McCallum with his biggest bombs and nothing happened. Right after that Jackson wilted like a flower. He got destroyed by an amazing body attack. If Maidana could blast people like that, Floyd would be in big trouble.

Floyd wasn’t on his game. This time he will be.

I agree that had Maidaina had better conditioning in the first fight he would have won. He dominated those first 5 rounds and to me deserves at least a draw.

If he can keep the pressure going for at least the first 7 or 8 rounds Mayweather may be in some trouble this time around.

Floyd and daddy were so scared of manny in the day that they probably convinced themselves that he must be on peds. How else could he dominate bigger fighters. They had thought peds because thinking the obvious, that manny was just that good and likely to rip May apart, was a truth too hard to swallow. This is the cowardice: of self induced delusion to protect ones ego. Even if that who it’s itself a delusion. Which may is still deluded abt.

NOPE!!!!! … Floyd is not capable of dishing those out. Another sluggish points win with Maidana not looking the worst for wear. He looked prettier than Floyd after their last fight.

“Floyd is undefeated”

So what, Ali was beaten more than once, is Fraud Duckweather better than him. Not a chance. Ali was miles better than him.

Sugar Robinson was beaten 19 times is Fraud Duckweather better than him? Not even close, Ray was a million times better than Fraud.

Henry Armstrong lost 21 times, is Fraud Duckweather better than him. No of course not, not even close.

The list is endless …

Fraud Duckweather is exactly that, a ducker his 0 means nothing.

WBC: Mayweather’s 147 and 154 Belt at Stake on 9/13
By World Boxing Council

Floyd Mayweather Jr. to defend WBC 147 & 154 titles on September 13th.

The WBC has decided to step forward and support yet another pinnacle in the history-making career of Floyd Mayweather Jr. Floyd is the only fighter ever to conquer WBC championships in five different weight categories as well as winning the WBC Diamond Belt and Solid Gold Belt.  Further, Floyd has the distinction of being one of the few champions who has received the WBC “Emeritus Champion” status.

Marcos Maidana is without a doubt a fighter who has created his own history in the sport. This past May, Marcos performed like no Mayweather opponent had in many years. That makes the September 13 rematch a very attractive event where Maidana could become the WBC Welter and Super Welter Champion of the world.

There is a rich history behind the uncommon situation this great battle presents. It has been 26 years since it last happened, when Sugar Ray Leonard defeated Donny Lalonde to claim the super middleweight and light heavyweight WBC World Championhsips.

Other examples are:

    130 years ago, Jack Dempsey, known as “Nonpareil” (not the better known heavyweight legend who later took after this name), defeated George Fulljames after 22 rounds in Staten Island, New York, claiming the welter and middleweight championships of the world.

    On April 24, 1931, at the “Chicago Stadium,” Tony Canzoneri defended his lightweight title while winning the super lightweight title held by his opponent Jack “Kid” Berg, from the U.K. Both fighters weighed in within the lightweight limit.

    In 1933, Barney Ross defeated Canzoneri, winning both the light and super lightweight world titles .

    In the late 1930s, Henry Armstrong was recognized as the featherweight, lightweight and welterweight champion of the world simultaneously .

    In 1988, Sugar Ray Leonard conquered the vacant super middleweight championship as well as the light heavyweight championship in possession of Donny Lalonde in a memorable ninth-round knockout.

The WBC is proud to be part of this historic promotion. The WBC wishes the best of luck to both fighters and great success to the promoters of the event.

Floyd Suggests Ariza Now Part trainer of ‘The Money Team’

Floyd Mayweather Jr. has used social media as his primary source for major announcements in his legendary career. The unbeaten pound-for-pound king has taken to his Twitter and Shots accounts to first reveal his fights with Marcos Maidana and Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez in recent past, as well as broadcasting the undercards for those events.

Taking that approach to new heights, Mayweather dropped a shocker in the wee hours of Friday morning – the news that strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza is, in some capacity, a part of ‘The Money Team’ for his upcoming September 13 rematch with Maidana.

“Alex Ariza stretching the champ for his 3AM (Vegas time) run,” Mayweather posted through his verified Shots account .

It has yet to be confirmed whether or not Ariza is a full-time member of Mayweather’s camp for this fight, or if the photo is just being floated to draw a rise out of his opponent. Ariza worked with Maidana prior to their first fight, in which Mayweather was handed the toughest challenge of his career in escaping with a majority decision in their May 3 thriller.

The controversial conditioning coach was recently relieved of working in such capacity with several fighters training with Robert Garcia. Prior to the separation, Ariza worked with Maidana, Brandon Rios and Mikey Garcia among other fighters at the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy.

Ariza is best known for his time spent with Manny Pacquiao while also working with several other fighters out of Freddie Roach’s Wild Card Gym in Hollywood, California.

Mayweather was cryptic in previous comments regarding the difference in fighters before, during and after their time spent with the conditioning coach.

“I don’t have anything against anyone, but I noticed that when the guy, Alex Ariza, was in Amir Khan’s corner and when he faced Maidana, Amir Khan looked super strong in that fight,” Mayweather noted prior to his first fight with Maidana. “Then you go back and look at it, I go look at Maidana’s fights against certain guys, like when he fought Alexander, he was strong, he was still coming ahead because he’s the kind of guy that comes straight ahead, and liked the looped shots. He wasn’t as strong as he was in the Adrien Broner fight. In the Adrien Broner fight he was a lot stronger than he was in a lot of his past fights.

“I don’t know if Alex Ariza plays a major role into that, but when I sit back and I look, I’m looking at Pacquiao versus Bradley and I notice ever since Ariza has not been with Pacquiao anymore there’s been a total change in his power. So I look at things like that and I question things like that to myself, but I don’t worry about anything and I’m not going to say nothing about Ariza because I think he’s a pretty cool guy. I don’t really know him, but we got USADA, which is the best in the world, and we’re going to continue to go out there and do what we supposed to do.”

Both fighters were proven clean through random drug test results from the fight. Maidana entered training camp for the rematch without the services of Ariza, prompting Mayweather to extend an invitation during the press tour to hype the September 13 event.

“I would like Ariza to come over to my camp, you know, since I don’t use no physical trainer,” Mayweather claimed this past July when informed that Maidana and Ariza were not working together.

You have to go all out for twelve rds to beat May, something that doesn’t exist in this era, well conditioned fighters are a rarity instead of the norm, at least not at wwt. You can’t expect to win if you r only good for six or seven rds

Styles makes fights.that is 100% true.in the first fight mayweather never could adjust to mm style.that is the reason he was able to land more than others have.in this upcoming fighr I see floyd trying his pot shoting and run fight.but it will not work against a raging bull.that is not scared of your sissy punches.I see maidana win by brutal knockout no more than 7th rds.

SREDMOND

Mayweather had one rematch because it was close and he is the type of guy that is used to totally dominating his opposition beyond any question.. He NEVER lost to Maidana nor Castillo and if Maidana really has something special going he will go in there and get to the old man… But if he absorbs a bad beating or worse then he just becomes #46-47 coming up empty handed and being happy to share the ring with a truly GREAT fighter…

then again Floyd is not getting any younger and his legs are not what they used to be so who knows? I will be watching to find out?

Posted August 29, 2014 10:40 am 


Pugfan

the reason Floyd only had 1 rematch in his career is because he knew in his heart that was the only fight that he actually was beaten even though he was the winner on the score cards. Maidana will have to fight the same type of bout as their 1st one but with a lot more pressure. that may be hard to do because I think stamina has always been one of his shortcomings.

Maidana is too overrated. He doesn’t belong to the elite level although you have to beat elites to be an ATG. So don’t believe the hype. With that being said, Floyd by a wide margin decision. It will be a good fights though, I always liked boxer against slugger. But this is definately not the best match up neither was the first fight. Not even close..

all floyds opponents make the mistake of throwing most of their shots to his head. his defense is far too good for u to get clean headshots for the most part. they should focus more on his body, then switch it upstairs when he lest expects. didnt he supposedly get a rib broken in sparring once? straight punches like a good jab seem to be more effective too, but everyone wants to be the 1 to land a flurry of hooks and KO him.

@rapidfire… light middlewight? 154 limit?

Posted August 29, 2014 6:53 am

N people stop with the “Manny has 8 championship belts in 8 divisions” that’s only cause his body allowed him to do so. Even Floyd could’ve done that if he started out at Bantaweight(or whatever) so it’s not that big of a deal. Wouldn’t be realistic for Floyd to do it now cause his body can’t handle super middle weight and above(barely even middleweight at 152lbs)..So stop.

Posted August 29, 2014 6:49 am 


RapidFire

Imo Maidana should stay with his smother tactic. All Mayweather needs is for Maidana to take one step back so he can see Maidana’s punches. Bad move Maidana. Canelo already tried what he’s about to attempt.

Hecdog… wind it in mate. You’re embarrassing yourself. Yes… the fight should have happened but it didn’t. It’s a thing of the past.
How much grief would you and your boyfriends be giving Mayweather if he lined up Algieri as an opponent? Be honest.

Boxingpedia

In the first fight Maidana deserved at least a draw but 2 judges saw it 117-111 and 116-112, meaning that Marcos will need a KO to get a draw which is exactly what happened to Martinez when he KOed Cintron. Chino can do it with a few adjustments and better conditioning. Floyd is very good defensively but he is not untouchable, he is not Locche who invented the shoulder roll and the rope the dope techniques. Floyd doesn’t have Nicolino’s amazing reflexes and head movements, he uses his elbows and forearms illegally and sometimes he turns his back and that’s why he got hit in the back of his head and in the back of his body. Prediction Maidana by devastating “draw” in the fith.

The blueprint was set by Hatton. Albeit for 5 rounds only. Educated pressure is key. Force the issue, cut him off, footwork and desire. Maybe someome with a better chin and less of a pwnchant for taking straight eights to tge head can prevail… maidana? We’ll see.
Having said that, blueprints work both ways. Maybe Floyd will look at the Maisana-Alexander fight and see that Chino can be soundly outboxed from opening to final bell.

I do not dispute that Manny would have given FMJ plenty of trouble, and I cannot really say who would have won back then, I do think FMJ has the advantage now though. The only thing I dispute is this fallacy about Manny’s Power. FMJ is not a knock out artist either and I do think Manny hits harder I just dispute the notion of his brutal power. If you say brutal combos that led to a TKO I would agree.

@ Hecdog.
Though I do not put him on as high a pedestal as yourself ,I am a huge Manny Pac fan, I do like his style in the ring and his humble nature, and I applaud your devotion, but I must respectfully disagree with your claim of a “crushing KO” of FMJ as it is just plain baseless and here is why.
Manny has 38KO on his record of which 25 or 26 of them are via TKO and not outright knock outs. This clearly shows that Manny finishes his the majority of his fights with a accumulation of punches generated by his speed and angles . The last outright KO he had was Ricky Hatton, and as impressive as the KO was, it was one of the few where he actually put someone to sleep, rather than the just busted them up and had the ref or the corner intervene. During his run of dominance only one of his opponents was knocked out cold and that was Hatton. Manny has good power but has never really had devastating 1 punch lights out power.

Stand & trade?? What knowledgeable fighter does that anymore? This dangerous sport has gradually reached a level of artistic art form – It has not the title, the ‘sweet science’ for nothing. Maidanas insistence that Mayweather attempt something as reckless & foolish as going toe to toe – blow for blow, shows his WILD & CRAZY seething disrespectful penchant towards MayweatherI! Also, In this particular rematch, Maidanas under the impression that ‘no respect’ in & out the ring, is gonna garner him the win.

Maidana sure doesnt have the best of plans, but the decision to beat Mayweathers arms is, imo – superb. The thing is, Maidana doesnt seem to know how to cut off the ring to accomplish this feat. He now chooses to rush in with the huge hooks & uppercuts without properly landing correctly, they (his punches) wildly reaches its target at times. That wont work on Mayweather, he’s not a mannequin type fighter that doesnt know how to avoid the wild octopus leads. He’ll also be prepared, this time, for the “DIRTY” roughhousing on the ropes.

Maidana WANTS a give & take type of fight; he’s unwittingly revealing his arsenal limitations. With that said, I cant see Maidana doing better, especially since he’ll be lighter than before. He also needs a healthy respect of his opponents skill set. If he plans again – not to, he’ll end up with another loss; unless of course, a sneak shot or shots, make their way in. Stick & move is the name of the game, not voluntarily sticking & receiving until someone falls like a bewildered caveman…..preserving the brain is key, so that dictating the plan can work…..not to mention, outside the ring, being able to use it.

I have always thought there is no way you can out think or out box Floyd, it just cannot be done, the only one that could come close was sweet pea and possibly a 2001 version of Shane Mosley, but none of today’s crop.
Maidana has the blueprint to beat FMJ. Ortiz tried it but was not good enough to execute, pressure, pressure, pressure , foul, pressure, pressure pressure, foul ect….force him in the corner and wear some face leather in the process, FMJ does not have the footwork he used to have so you need to force him backwards. Get him on the rope or in the corner and pressure him, smash on his guard and shoulders until it breaks down , no one has been able to do the against him for a sustained period of time, Cotto, Castillo, Ortiz ( for half a round) have all had some success with this, but no sustained success, As no one has come in the ring with the type of fitness needed to execute a plan like this. Fitness is the key and pressure is the game. You will not win on the cards so a few fouls and point deductions will not change the game. In my opinion , only dirty boxing and a KO will rid FMJ of his “0”. I think the 9 week training camp is a good idea if most of that time is spent on fitness.

Floyd will come out ..letting his hands go earlier than usual.and trying to stick & move.like in his earlier fights.at least that his plan.but to his suprise.chino will be there to exchange with him and them some.since maidana don’t have no respect or fear for floyds power.he will get the best of him..we might see floyd buckle early on .& then the stoppage by knock out buy the 6th.

Maidana already delivered the best possible fight he could and in underrated circumstances. he won’t enjoy that advantage in the rematch. could he be in better physical condition? sure but he already went 12 busy rounds. could he throw more punches? certainly but i doubt that he’ll land any more v. a motivated Mayweather who knows he escaped with a very close win. i scored it for Maidana but it was no robbery and Floyd is granting the immediate rematch, which is irrefutable evidence that he emerged from the first bout convinced that He is the better fighter. it’s enough to place every previous close round for Maidana in question and there were several close rounds following the first five, which Maidana Swept. it’s that lead that i believe was insurmountable in I. it’s that lead that Maidana will not be able to count on in II. it may have taken Floyd a lot longer than usual to figure out this opponent but it’s a certainty that he’s bringing the fight-plan for the rematch.

Posted August 29, 2014 12:27 am

Maidana won’t let Mayweather move, he will force him into a corner, on the ropes like the first fight, Maidana may get him this time before round 5, if not then Mayweather will probably win on points, I think Maidana will get him this time thought, Maidana by stoppage, first half of the fight.

I will be rooting for Maidana but Mayweather will win and I think he will win more convincingly.

Maidana wont be able to constantly pressure as Mayweather will be more willing to let his hands go. I think Mayweather is going to start off strongly this time around. He normally takes a few rounds to adjust but I expect a different Mayweather.
