Mayweather: “The ultimate goal is to get you to the level where it don’t matter who you go in there with.” – And this why I hate Mayweather. It don’t matter who you go in there with? That’s why we’ll get Mayweather vs. Guerrero, because people will buy his PPV’s regardless of opponent. Sorry bro, it does matter. While Floyd is no doubt a great fighter, this attitude and subsequent opponent selection is why few experts & knowledgeable fans will name him as the greatest of all time.

Broner is suddenly being pushed to face all the guys at 140 and beyond that every novice fan can think of…He is 23 years old and being brought along very nicely as well he should…Say what you will Demarco was the champ at 135 and Broner did not just wine he utterly dominated him to the point where guys wanna rush him along… For the record Gamboa has been coming along pretty SLOWWWWWWWW he is around 30 years old and he and Broner are not even in the same weight class… Gamboa had not fought in over a year if I am correct, I have no issue with the matchup but pretending that Broner is ducking guys is silly at this point, his career has just begun and being showcased on the Mayweather card is a MAJOR boost for his career and a step in the direction of superstardom… Good for him

Lefthook you dummy please don’t mention Margarito’s name if you a real boxing fan. This guy is a cheat and a bum simple. Since you have amnesia let me remind you that Baldomir didn’t have a dancing partner whilst Top Rank wanted to match Mayweather with Margarito. When Mayweather bought out his contract why on earth didn’t Arum make the Margarito vs Baldomir fight? Coz they knew Baldomir was going to kick Cheatorito’s ass. Baldy had all 3 belts. He was the man at 147lbs. plus remember took long in choosing an opponent due to Zab Judah’s loss to Baldy. You guys crack me up when you twist crap around to suit your deranged agendas. As much as I hate Boxtradummy he’s got a point. Mayweather should never “The Ghost” it does nothing for his legacy. Alvarez would be a much better pick.

Lefthook-Bradley has no shot vs. Mayweather. He’s a feather fisted Boxer who can’t Out Box Floyd…Go learn how to assess SKILL levels.

Boxtradamus

Lefthook-I’ve SAID it before and I’ll say it again. Haye is the BEST HW not named Klitschko. Jennings would get knocked out.

Patrick2-You can say that AGAIN. Fight Aficionado is a PRIME example.

Lefthook

Bryant Jennings vs David Haye would be a great fight in Miami, California or New York too and would be very entertaining as a spectacle. What you think to that one boxtradamus then, and who you picking to win if it happens in 2013.

LMFAO. Ricky Burns will give this WANNABE fits!!! Too long and too strong for the cheap mayweather clone. Burns PERFECT overhand right, left hook, and that big looping left to the body, are Burns recipe for solving THE PROBLEM!! And what sort of fcuckn nick name is the problem anyway?

CORRECTION…that’s called GOATNESS..

Posted January 1, 2013 5:47 pm 


Boxtradamus

When you can face 9 CHAMPS in 10 straight Fights and WIN them all by one sided Massacre thats called GREATNESS. One sided Massacres aren’t very much fun to watch sometimes but that doesn’t take away from the FACT that its the most DOMINANT way to WIN…SO when you say Floyd lacks wars despite facing 9 CHAMPS in his last 10 Fights what you’re really saying IS that he’s the most DOMINANT.

PEEJ

No way Marquez vs Pac does 100 mil. The only reason it did so good in sales was because of Marquez. Pacs crowds have not been close to what they used to be. Mayweather lacks wars because he has never had to be in any. Not saying Pac vs Marquez does not do good money but they will both still only be getting around 10 mil or so

I know folks are hot for Gamboa because he’s an action fighter, but unbiasedly watch the skills of both and you’ll see Broner technically is much, much better than Gamboa. In fact, I say Broner is the most talented rising star out there right now. Plus, again, look at the size difference — Broner’s overall dimensions are larger than Gamboa. You guys need to factor out fighters’ personalities and just watch how well they perform in the ring. Too many of you rate fighters on a likeability scale, and not on a skill’s scale.

Posted January 1, 2013 4:50 pm 


Fight Aficionado

“Broner would dismantle Gamboa.” – Lots of guys say that yet Broner won’t step up to the plate. Saying what he would do means nothing if he doesn’t prove it in the ring. Gamboa-Broner is an even money fight, something he’s yet to do because he’s been too busy smacking down punching bags to look good on HBO and losing to Ponce De Leon.

Posted January 1, 2013 3:59 pm 


Fight Aficionado

“Broner can fight a 100 Gavin Rees and Ricky Burns and it won’t mean a thing to U.S boxing fans.” – Agree with the author. I would add Gamboa to his long list of opponents who would matter, most of which are at 140. Broner needs to beat a top lower weight guy like Gamboa if he’s for real. That’s a sink or swim fight and he hasn’t had one opponent who was considered a real challenge.

Posted January 1, 2013 3:56 pm 


Boxtradamus

At 140 Bradley has the Khan Fight, the Garcia Fight, the Matthysse Fight, the Peterson rematch, and IF he re establishes himself as the Top guy there he will be there for the Broner Fight. Broner will want to face the Top guy at 140. SO whoever establishes themselves as the Top guy at 140 will have a Big Money Fight SOON….unless his plan is to just lay in the weeds and wait for everyone to move UP to Welter…but that would be wasting time…he could be Fighting one of those guys next IF he moves down right now….He will have to humble himself and become an HBO Fighter for a few Fights but it will pay off with the Broner PPV who is one of the next PPV Superstars.

fair point – i did mean british

Boxtradamus

Bradley has a BETTER future at 140 than he does at 147 SO his handlers need to smarten UP and move him back to 140 where he has PLENTY of money to make. At 147 he’s run into a dead end.

Posted January 1, 2013 3:35 pm 


Boxtradamus

Hidalgo & Lefthook-GOOD guesses but the BEST Welterweight other than Floyd is a guy named Juan Manuel Marquez. Bradley beat Pacquiao by questionable decision while Marquez lost by ROBBERY and then knocked him out. Marquez is
also the BEST at 140 and 135. That’s why he’s rated #3 P4P.

Posted January 1, 2013 3:32 pm 


Hidalgo

Lefthook, I agree with you. Other than Floyd, Timothy is the best welterweight in the division. But no, he goes for Robert Guerrero whom he will easily beat. But hey, Pacquiao fought Marquez for a 4th time instead of taking a rematch with Bradley, and boy, did Pacquiao come out on the wrong end of that deal! However, money talks and a Mayweather/Guerrero fight will bring a lot more of it than a Maweather/Bradley fight. After all, who really cares about Tim Bradley at this point in time?

Mayweather will use Bronner to get back at 50 Cent aka Fan Man. Bronner will beat Gamboa and leave 50 with basically damaged goods left and right.

This piece is far too US based – reality is if the promoters/boxers want to make the biggest pay check they need to fight global stars that will bring PPV from numerous countries, not just the US. Especially on this evening when you already get the US PPV buys from Mayweather, the Latino PPV buys from Alvarez – get a EU fighter on the undercard and see EU PPV buys add to the pot.

ricky’s record is very deceptive – he is britain’s most improved fighter in the last two years. burns has consistently fought at a high level, and won convincingly. id say mitchell, who burns ko’d in 4 in his last fight, beans khan. dont get me wrong, i like khan, im not hating him, and am confident he will vastly improve under hunter’s training

@ronan But do you think Burns beats Khan?? Gtfo i like Ricky Burns but he wouldnt beat Khan in a million years, the only way he beats Khan is if he knocks him out and looking at Ricky’s ko % thats highly unlikely

are you serious? no, surely not, you gotta be kidding

Broner would dismantle Gamboa. 1. Broner is physically larger than Gamboa. 2. Broner is just as fast as Gamboa. 3. Technically, Broner is on another level — Gamboa gets sloppy, Broner never gets sloppy. Broner picks Gamboa apart and finishes him in less than 6 rounds.

Mayweather is a clown his whole family is a band of trailer trash carnies. He lives a miserable daily life. I would rather work a normal job than wake up and fill my life with fake just to prolong blasting myself

Mayweather is looking for a brisk jog may 4 so how about any fabricated promoted fighter some one like Andre Berto!

Mayweather conveniently taking Broner under his wing so he has an excuse not to fight him in the future.

All you can do is question Donaires opponents. He definitely needs to step it up. I find it funny how folks say he should get fighter of the year award for fighting 3 or 4 times in a year but he was like a 30 to 1 favorite in every fight. Might as well give fighter of a year to a prospect who is fighting 5 or 6 times a year

I am looking forward to Broner being on 24/7, not really interested in the same old Mayweather thing. Broner fighting Mayweather will never happen.

Posted December 31, 2012 9:17 pm 


Fact man

Tunnel vision again, what has Broner done to be calling out the top fighters and mega pay days, hasn’t beat anyone particularly good, he could get surprised by Rees even, he’s very short but a very good fighter.

Posted December 31, 2012 8:15 pm 


Lefthook

May be Mayweather and Broner ought to fight each other at welterweight as Broner is too heavy for a super lightweight. Now that would be a fight worth wotching or even better Mayweather vs Timothy Bradley the true american hero who will smash Mayweathers a*s up given the chance as is so obvious to all boxing fans around the world with the exception of the American fans who these days are watching Basketball, American Football and Baseball.
