DAZzzz “Tark’ are you high on molly? what you mean Pacquiao has beaten everybody he faced in the last 15 years? You stupid idiotic moron. “Who is Marquez”?”

Don’t be a stupid idiot, you pathetic brainless jerk. What I said is 100% true.

Pacquiao has 2 victories and 5 knockdowns scored on Marquez.. Their series standa at 2-1-1 with Pacman in the lead.. He also beat Bradley and still owns the title he took from Tim.. Pac smashed Morales the last 2 times he faced him, and won that trilogy 2-1.

Adrien only has hatred for Floyd. Let me guess Pac is ducking Thurman and Khan to right. Since he has yet to fight them. He is actually fighting a 140lb fighter.

No you dumb idiot. I never down played it. You said he whooped or smoked Alexander and you are completely wrong. Nothing about that fight was exciting nor did anybody get smoked. You need to step your knowledge up cause you have none.

Yeah Floyd for you always only “whoop ass” by assuming but never actually fighting Eh? Khan beat Maidana beat Judah who your hero struggled badley how come?

They can all beat khan accept mayweather now go f0k yourself idiot !
And if khan is shyt then how come he was one out of two close mayweather’s picks ? Even then he avoided him

Posted September 3, 2014 6:49 am

I always said mayweather will never fight 3 fighters no matter what and those are
1.paqiao
2.thurman
3.khan

Now I know a lot of fans will disagree with me about khan but I am convinced that mayweather will avoid him no matter what because he knows he will have a tough time against khan

Of course Pacquiao destroyed Oscar, and Floyd never did that.

Adrian.., I watched Floyd-De La Hoya many times without the sound.

It’s fight I liked to use for instruction, for some of the bad things DLH did and some of the good things Mayweather did.

I always ignore commentary anyway because the heads are not really paying attention most of the time — they’re generally cheerleading for somebody.

“CANELO WITH ANOTHER BODY BARRAGE” and not one punch actually landed on fair territory — but the commentators are screaming loud enough so the judges can hear them — so when you combine that with erroneous punch stats, the viewer is definitely going to be influenced.

Floyd landed crisper, cleaner, and more frequently vs Oscar and clearly beat him.

“I’d pick Lara, Brook, and Thurman if it were up to me. Floyd doesn’t like slick, rangy guys who can jab his face in — and throw a power shot behind the jab.” – Replace Lara with Pac and I’d give props for Floyd taking any of them. Floyd’s nut slurpers like pointing to the Marquez loss but before then it was a conglomeration of other excuses. Floyd doesn’t handle southpaws well and his father cited that as a reason Floyd shouldn’t fight Pac. Fact.

PEEJ’s version.., “Bradley didn’t shut down Alexander. That fight had nothing going for it. They nullified each other. Alexander did beat Madaina but if they were to rematch I bet Madaina KOs Alexander or gets the decision. I mean if you are going to talk about people being beat by others and don’t deserve to fight certain people then there really isn’t many people for Floyd to fight if any.”

Well… there’s people who are unbeaten because they’re so good… Like Kell Brook and Keith Thurman.

And Manny Pacquiao… Pac’s beaten EVERYBODY he’s faced over the last 15 years… That’s the fight 80% of people on the planet would pick if they had a choice.

I’d pick Lara, Brook, and Thurman if it were up to me. Floyd doesn’t like slick, rangy guys who can jab his face in — and throw a power shot behind the jab.

PEEJ just arguing for the hell of it. Has 0 clue, as usual. Bradley won against Alexander but of course, this turd will try to downplay anything that Bradley does since Bradley was shut down by Pac twice. This is an agenda having, self hating white turd. Bradley was ahead on all 3 cards comfortably when the fight ended.

Posted September 2, 2014 5:56 pm 


uh oh

The problem floyd has is maidana’s awkward style/ unorthodox punching angles along with his relentlessness… srr had lamotta… srl had duran… ali had frazier… will Marcos be the one behind the one in 46 – 1… No matter how the fight plays out in the ring
Floyd isnt getting any younger… I believe if he doesnt stop Maidana then he will lose a decision… people say he cant lose on the scorecards but I beg to differ… the powers that be are tired of floyd being undefeated… and if he doesnt want to take a dive they will punish him on the scorecards!

Only thing i can say with absolute certainty is that Maidana has GOT TO knock him out to win. And then he may still lose somehow.

All maidana has to do is win 3 round Floyd pride, which was the porpose of the rematch, a shutout, or Floyd loses he can’t shut down or hurt , who khan knock down or Alexander won easly,remember Bradley beat down alexander at his hight, unbeaten.
Logic say Bradley would shut maidana out easily.better than Alex did.

Ok tark cool , I suggest you rewatched the fight again but without any volume and see what I am talking about, the early rounds and latter rounds were very close and could have gone either way because they were close rounds to score because Oscar wasn’t pressing like in the early rounds, he started to get tired and floyed wasn’t particularly busy either .
It is funny how some people forgot about this fight and their memory is a fals one created by writers who worship floyed and think floyed dominated oscar , example I use to argue with one of my friend at work who likes boxing about this fight , he actualy thought floyed stoped oscar even though he saw the fight but his memory changed because of reasons I stated above ,and only until he saw clips of Oscar vs floyed fight before Maidana vs floyed fight the next day he was like ” damn oscar really beat floyed ” lol
Some people’s opinions are only what they hear from someone about the fight !

Posted September 2, 2014 4:21 am 


TARK

Adrian.., “it is totally undeniable that Oscar pressed the fight and won clearly the early rounds and there is no way floyed dominated the fight not even close.”

Now that’s a long way from saying Floyd won — isn’t it? But I don’t see how anybody can say Oscar clearly won the early rounds. That just didn’t happen.

As for Floyd Sr??? Floyd Sr was tossed out of the house by his son at one point.. They weren’t on speaking terms.. They didn’t get along for a long time.. Floyd FIRED his dad as his trainer.. And Floyd Sr WAS Oscar’s trainer – so I expected Floyd Sr to say that crap.

I expected Kazcmarek to produce a goofy score. He’s an idiot who hates Floyd

And I didn’t say Floyd won 11 rounds… I said he won 8 rounds solidly and landed more punches in 11 rounds. I won’t complain about anyone giving Oscar 4 rounds. Floyd landed like 87 more punches, and neither fighter drilled the other particularly hard… It was a sparring match – and when that happens you give it to the better boxer.

Phenyo Molefe

Thank you Vivek, I hear what everyone is saying about this bout and I think that reality needs to be presented here. The fact of the matter is that Mayweather is in far greater shape and let me mention control than what we give him credit for.

So Maidana won a couple of round and roughed Mayweather up but my question remains was he really about to loose the bout? When Mayweather fought Catto and engaged in what we would deem entertaining was he at a risk of loosing the bout? The answer is NO.

Mark my words, Maidana is being sucked into believing he has the formula to bear Mayweather and at this stage that diverts from reality.

Posted September 2, 2014 2:51 am

Tark – fine you have your opinion and I respect but totally disagree especially when you say floyed won 11 rounds ….even floyeds father right after the fight before they announce the winner said ” son you lost” not that I care what he said because I don’t base my judgement on someone’s opinion but since you aid how even Larry merchant said he lost I bring you that as an example tha people can have different opinion , but it is totally undeniable that Oscar pressed the fight and won clearly the early rounds and there is no way floyed dominated the fight not even close .

the1… How the HELL did Oscar beat Floyd when he was clearly outboxed and out-scored all night??? Oscar was outpunched in 11 of 12 rounds..

The 2nd is the only round he took by a decent margin. There were a few close ones, but Floyd won 8 rounds solidly by simply landing more and better punches.

Everyone at ringside knew who the hell was winning the fight. Larry Merchant—who hates Mayweather and loves De La Hoya—had Floyd winning the fight solidly… as did Jim Lampley.

Any judge would have to be completely biased or incompetent to give that fight to Oscar. Kazcmarek is a little of both.

No way Tark, Oscar beat that boy’s a$$ for him. that’s why when you look that fight up on boxrec you see details it says everyone was booing when the split decision went to Mayweather. And the 12th round by all standards was given oscar. Well 2 judges rightfully gave that round to Oscar and the one that didn’t but should have would have made it a draw. However, the close cards are not the issue. Oscar beat him clearly. And won. That to me was FMJ’s first loss of 3.

Adrian, I agree with you most of the time, but Floyd clearly out-boxed Oscar… He out-jabbed him… out hooked him… landed more and better rights.

Check the punchstats… which were fairly accurate in this case, sometimes they’re not.

De La Hoya outweighed Floyd by about 20 pounds, and you’re allowed to use footwork to out-step a much larger opponent.

Little Cotto actually put sharper punches and better jabs on Floyd than Oscar did — and made a much better “fight” out of it… Even Roach complained that Oscar “did nothing.”

Exactly right !

Some revisionist writers like smith and Vivek tell us how Floyd beat Oscar if you didn’t see the fight for yourself you would think Floyd dominated oscar if you read what they say but reality is Floyd ran all night , lost clearly most of the rounds exept maybe the last 2 rounds because oscar could keep the pace of chasing the runner but he clearly won more rounds just as one of the judges saw it ! And remember that was at the end of oscars carriere well past his prime .

Well we have YouTube and everyone can watch for themselfs and find out how Floyd ” dominated oscar” lol

Squeale says.., “I think you sell Mma short. There is plenty of technique in that sport if you watch close.”

MMA fighters are allowed to do every thing a boxer does. They use footwork to maneuver around the ring, just like a boxer does – but they have to take their shoes off. Their feet would become deadly weapons with the right shoes in a street fight.

MMA fighters take a lot of boxing lessons – because they wear 3 oz gloves, many of their fights end with a punch to the head – obviously delivered out of a boxing stance.

But they don’t have pillows to hide behind like boxers do.

Obviously they have to learn 7 different fighting arts – can strike with their feet, shins, knees, elbows, backfists, and hammer blow as well – and have scores of other methods for ending a fight in the 1st round or any round.

Boxing is my favorite sport by far… but I love MMA too… There’s a lot to learn

Pac clearly lost 2 out of the 4 fights. Only reason he got the nod in the 3rd fight was because people thought the Floyd vs Pac fight was gonna get made but that didn’t happen. Pac wasn’t punishing Marquez. If you actually watched the fight Pac was knocked down twice. Happened in 2 different rounds. Which means it was a close fight that Pac didn’t wake up from.

Super Stars Pick and Choose

BOXING MACHINE: Excellent comment!! Although I like Maidana and admire his total disregard of fear or any perceived intimidation, Mayweather has the superior skills and boxing intelligence. It may be a narrow victory, but Mayweather has the talented edge all the way around.

Posted September 1, 2014 1:25 pm 


Super Stars Pick and Choose

Mayweather’s superior boxing skills guarantee that he will never have to fight for the whole round. Punchers fight the whole round practically. Being a master at boxing means that Mayweather can box, move, hold, adjust. Being the world’s greatest counter puncher and precision puncher gives him the greatest ability to pace the fight so that he uses minimal energy each round. At most, Mayweather works half of the round to get 100% effect while others, Maidana included, work 200% and still only get 50% or 75% at most.

Posted September 1, 2014 1:17 pm

Good point. Never thought from that aspect.

Posted September 1, 2014 1:13 pm 


BOXING MACHINE

The thing about this is Maidana already didn’t fear Floyd so that won’t add anything new to the equation. Add to that I don’t think Maidana can adjust enough from one fight to the next enough to deal with Floyd and it might even be a different Floyd try get in the ring with. Add to that the ref will not let Maidana fight as dirty as he did in the first fight. And probably most importantly is FEAR. I think one of the things that separates Floyd is that he is scared, scared of the outcome. Scared to take punishment, so his level is heightened more that his opponents who are willing to put their chins in harms way to do damage of their own. Before they know it the bell rings, he’s still standing and your chin has been in a display case all night. Fearlessness will be Maidana’s undoing, just like it was Hatton’s. All successful predators know fear.

Further proving that Pac has major issues with counter punchers and boxers.”

And again you can’t tell what people are thinking. Floyd looked pretty damn confident especially since he had his hand raised with 1 finger in the air. I would say that is pretty confident.

flydog

I’m not sure I quite get what all the fuss is about. Mayweather won a close but clear decision in the first fight. I enjoyed watching Maidana giving it a ‘good go’ but Mayweather was and is the better man. It’s just that some people hate Mayweather so much they cry “robbery” when a decision is anywhere near close. I’d prefer to see Mayweather fight some other WW champion/contender. Even Khan who has good legs and movement would present a challenge for Mayweather if these doubts about his own legs are to be believed. Khan would have Floyd moving all around the ring and working those 37 year old legs. Anyway, Maidana had his chance but is getting another one. The result will be the same unless one of Chico’s overhand rights gets a bit too close to Floyd’s chin!!

Don’t see why folks watch boring boxing matches instead of dirty real wrestling matches in MMA. Gee, some one boxed instead of doing chin checking Chevelo imitations.

Boxing all starts with footwork; which is not dancing around out of range, but movement with in range, to get an angle. Great footwork places the one doing it, where he can get the most force out of a punch through torque.
Having the feet in exactly the right place to get his ass into a punch. And nullify his opponents range and power.

Boxing 101, boxers, vs. swarmers, maulers and power punchers will continue after a word from our sponsors.

Maidana put Floyd in the right place. Floyd is a great fighter, just not as great as he and his fans think he is. Floyd is still in his prime, prior to the Maidana fight he was coming off a virtual shoot out against Canelo but father time is knocking at his door. This is the poor’s man Leonard-Duran version but the difference is that Marcos is still improving and Floyd already peaked. If Maidana can make subtle adjustments and improve his stamina Floyd is going to be in trouble because he will be forced against the ropes easier than before. Be prepare for a big upset, Chino by KO in 5.

Nobody can KO Floyd! He is the anti action fighter. It’s all about the jab and tap you are it kind of guy. If a fighter knows how to avoid the action, it’s Floyd the master of peek a boo style aka boxing style!

Vivek Wallace, please don’t ever write another article giving Margarito any accolades. This guy was cheating with hardened plaster in his hand wraps. True boxing fans and historians alike pretty much have to discredit all of Margarito’s accomplishments because of this fact! Without the tainted wraps after he was caught, he was a shell of his former self which leads me to believe he’d been cheating, possibly his entire career, or at least in big fights. I’m particularly glad he and Mayweather never fought. It’s sad to know what Cotto suffered at the hands of a cheater. In my opinion, he’s no different than what Armstrong did during his cycling career. Because of Armstrong’s history of taking PEDS, you have to discredit his whole legacy.

Margarito deserves no respect for his illicit actions, so please give this cheating boxer no light from here on out. His actions were despicable and probably shortened many boxing careers.

Because EVERYONE knew Margarito was a fraud who lost to Danny Santos and Paulie Williams…. The Master of Plaster was a punching bag who couldn’t fight.

Painfully obvious when Cheater Reeter lost every round and was smashed out by the elderly Shane Mosey… Lost every round and was mashed into a jelly by Pacman… Lost every round and was battered into a stoppage by little Miguel C.

Floyd’s downfall will be his age. If he no longer has it, then Maidana will have his chance. Sadly, many Mayweather haters will act like Maidana beat a 23 year old Mayweather it the upset happens. I still think Mayweather is smart enough with a solid defense to beat Maidana again. People forget that Floyd’s defense is just as good standing still as it is when he’s moving.

TARK

Vivek says.., “Some will balk at an angle which parallels Duran with Maidana or Margarito, but outside of Gennady G. Golovkin, those same people would probably struggle to name two more relentless competitors of this era in that same weight range. Maidana doesn’t have Margarito’s toughness.”

Truthfully… Maidana is a lot tougher than Margarito. Cheato was a toothless tiger without his plastered wraps – starting with the Mosley fight.

The worst fighters to compare Maidana to are Duran, Margarito, and Golovkin.

Maidana is a better technician than Margarito—who was a complete mess.

Maidana doesn’t compare as a technician to Duran—who was a good boxer.

Maidana doesn’t compare technically to GGG—who crushed Geale… has one of the best jabs in boxing… one of the best right counters… and one of the deadliest liver shots. Gennady has a deep bag of strategies to get brutal shots on your chin or your ribcage.

Marcos Maidana is another Bennie Briscoe.

He’s very tough, very aggressive, and throws punches relentlessly from everywhere. He wears you down.. If you’re mentally weak like Victor Ortiz you WILL quit.. Briscoe absorbed punches extremely well but lacked superb technical skills.. The same is true of Maidana… He’ll never be another Mikey Garcia … no matter how long he’s with Robert Garcia.

I know exactly how he did it. Watched the fight a few times. Fighting a bum in Mexico means nothing. Like I said Pac called Marquez out and challenged him to a drug test and he accepted but Pac declined since he would be tested also. Why is that? Why when it comes to drug testing Pac has an issue? Why is he only willing to do the random testing is when his fights happen in China?

Marquez called Pacs bluff about the drug testing and Pac backed off. Why is that?

Just like I though Marquez clearly beat Pac in the 3rd fight and Pac was looming for a way to quit in the Sanches fight. We will see how he looks against Algieri. I think he wins the decision but Algieri is gonna make him look terrible through out the fight. Further proving that Pac has major issues with counter punchers and boxers.

He will land hard and clean and the ref will slow count and Mayweather will beat the count and the round will end. I can see something like that.

Great article from a great writer! Now most folks won’t give Mayweather any credit for having a lot of book smarts, but it is very evident that he has quite a bit of common sense and street knowledge. Everyone knows how Ariza was accused of being too involved in fighter’s (e.g., Pac, khan) preparation, to the point that he was trying give fighters instructions in the corner. If anyone knows the bad habits and tendencies of fighters that they’ve worked with before it’s Ariza. Mayweather gets a good workout and the real scoop on Maidana and his future opponent next year (i.e. Pac). Know thy enemy. Mayweather may not be able to read but he’s no fool.

I respect what Mayweather accomplished but i don’t like him. Too proud and narcisistic for me. I like Maidana, he did do some dirty things in the last fight and i don’t condone it but i think that was animosity from the disrespect he got from Mayweather leading up to the fight and Mayweather picking his gloves for him. If everything is conditional to FMJ.. is he not a “Conditional champion”? I mean if a commision approves the gloves… why in the hell does he dictate anything but his own choice of gloves?!? Who else cries that bad?

Moe, Maidana’s punches anywhere hurt. Getting hit in the body anywhere takes a toll. Just as you said can Maidana punch at that rate 12 rounds.. can Floyd’s aging body take it if he does? I don’t think he can take 12 rounds like round one was.. when he went back to the corner bloody like a deer in headlights

Sugar and Cotto gave Floyd a moment of trouble in 12 RDS
NOBODY HAS CAME CLOSE TO KNOCKING FLOYD DOWN MUCH LESS OUT BRO.

Where do people come up with this BS?

Maidana will again show no respect and all heart…..I just want him to drop Floyd and I don’t care if it comes from a clean or dirty shot…..JUST DO IT LITTLE BULLDOG….I HAVE FAITH IN YOU….YOU ARE A WARRIOR

Floyd will win MD

Mayweather brings too much to the table for Vegas, money runs the show. They can care less about Maidana, he is gonna have to knock Floyd out cold to win. Don’t see that happening.

Mayweather had adjusted to Maidana after the 6th round. He still got hit more than he should have. Maidana was hitting any and everything he could legal or not. One thing I have noticed in boxing in gerneral are the shots to the back of the head are being let go more and more. The ring is a rough place, elbows, head butts, low blows, it’s all a part of it. Maidana is coming one way cause it’s the only way he knows how to fight. Mayweather love him or hate him can box and is still slick enough to get off the ropes. Question isn’t weather Maidana can hit him with mega million dollar lottery shot. The question is, Can Floyds legs carry him for 12 pressure packed rounds. All Mayweather has to do is be standing when the bell rings and he gets a decision. Showtime has too much money to lose on their investment.

The 1…thats the biggest question….can Chino do it for 12 rounds. I dont think so. That was Chino best fight…dirty tactics and all and he still couldnt finish Floyd. Floyds punches hurt. He may not stop his opponents, but he sure makes them think about throwing punches.

And if Chino wants to eat punches all day long then thats fine. Chino cant do any better than the first fight especially with all the mma tactics. Bayless aint having that.

There is nothing that can be done on Floyd’s end. You run to stay away from the ropes and have fear cause the other guy is a big puncher you will get worn put the same as if you stayed on the ropes and tried to block and conserve energy. Bottom line is that if Maidana is truly ready to bang 100+ punches for all 12 rounds and in better shape; age is not on Mayweather’s side. Maidana knows this time he controlled things and got tired. He will also be confident that Mayweather’s shots don’t hurt because he already took them. Floyd will need to run and and land.. can he do it for 12 being pressured for 12 against a fighter that improves with every fight and hits like a sledgehammer? I think Floyd is a shot away. I think his age, his personal life and increasing lack of motivation along with Maidana knowing what to do better next time will ne Floyd’s downfall.

Vito makes some great points. But heres my assesments. Floyd has collected enough data on Chino to make adjustments. Hiring ariza is good because ariza can probaly give Floyd conditioning hes never had. Seeing how Floyd never had a strength and conditioning coach, he understands that his body needs help at this level. I ve watched the fights where floyd lies on the ropes. Most of the time its done willingly. He did it against Cotto and many people said “his legs were shot”.

In his fight against Guerrero, he kept the fight mostly in the center of the ring and only moved when necessary. One could hear Floyd Sr. in the Chino fight to stop messing around and laying on the ropes. When Floyd kept the fight in the center of the ring, he popped chino at will. He did the same with Cotto.

Floyd will not lay on the ropes and keep the fight in the center of the ring. Even if he has to pot shoot until Chino tires a little bit. Missing takes away energy and Floyd rarely wastes punches. Or Floyd will come out like he did against Canelo and walk him down and see how chino fights backing up. Plus Chinos dirty tatics were more of a mind game and thr ref let that stuff happen. Kenny Bayless wont allow the MMA tactics to go on. If Chino gets too brave he can find himself on the canvas looking up at lights.

FMJ will pick apart Chino, makes it easy and comes up with an easy win. Floyd already figured out Chino. The only reason FMJ was so quick to give him a rematch.

Sit down and have a nice cup of STFU, nut hugger.

Why poor blacks and white trash people root for a filthy rich, a-hole athlete is comic relief to me.

It’s official alex ariza has anounce on twitter he working in Floyd camp. They are picture of Alex and Floyd together at Floyd gym. And Floyd did say so. Few days ago.
So why is Floyd being a wishy washy clown, wasn’t he the joker that condemn manny as a steriord user and that the reason why he will not fight him? Didn’t he kept saying amybody working with ariza looks super after and are suspected of ped ? Wtf. Floyd clown a joker with a short momery, fooling his fans thinking he the greatest.con man.

Great article…for building pre-fight hype. But that’s all this is..pre-fight hype. Why people want to see Mayweather lose so badly is comic relief to me but the fact remains Maidana threw his best at Floyd and STILL couldn’t beat him, even when cheating!!! He had a cheater Strength & Conditioning coach (Alex Ariza) and a cheater trainer that tells him to be dirty. And STILL.. He could not beat Mayweather. AND HE WONT BE ANY BETTER IN THE REMATCH!! Because Floyd has figured Out Maidanas wild ass erratic style. Floyd is an all-terrain fighter whereas Maidana is a one-trick pony. Where the big surprise will come is when Maidana finds out he can’t bull Floyd into the ropes this time around and he wil have to box, and we all know Maidana won’t outbox Floyd.
