Let’s say Martinez defeated a guy at 160 who began at 130 and who’s current bet weight is 147 how much respect should Martinez get for beating a smaller man?? And why is it that Floyd needs to make the concession if they do fight? Why is it incumbent upon Mayweather to try and disadvantage himself and provide maximum comfort to his opponent? Again this is a testament to his skills and the desire to see him lose by any means necessary ..:

I like alot of what you have to say, but how fair is it to keep moving the bar for greatness and when does it end? Fact is Floyd is one of only maybe 4 guys in the history of the sport to be a champ in 5 weight classes and the only to do it without losing… Instead of being lauded for successfully pushing the envelope he is being vilified… To be honest it’s weird, boxings a dangerous sport and going after bigger and bigger people will eventually result in a BAD loss… Martinez has clearly defined 160 as his upper limit, so why should Floyd be denied the right to say where he is comfortable fighting?? Is it good sport to see a guy who started at 130 end up in the ring with a guy like Chavez Jr who might be 180 fight night? Again Floyd’s being penalized for domination no 2 ways about it…

When did this site get so loaded down with so many children. Really u like this fighter so u put balls in your mouth? Real mature. It appears most of u don’t know your ass from a hole in the ground. Cherrypicking as u claim let’s just break that down. Dlh,mosely,cotto, and hatton I guess we have to take those fighters off the record for both fighters(common opponents) and obviously cherrypicked by both right? Then we have jmm which accounts for 4 of pacs fights (and a Ko loss) and one fight for Floyd. Obviously again cherrypicking. Moving on down for floyd I guess deigo corrales and Jose luis castillo also cherrypicked so they don’t count. Cancel out MAB and Erik morales for pac cause we can’t count those either. Take that loss from Pac too. Now were left with for Floyd..judah, gatti, ortiz and pac has …clottey, marg, Bradley(loss). Is there really that much difference? No they are both great fighters headed to the hof and some point and hopefully will meet before then. Respect who they are what they have done and appreciate them while. Maybe take some time to learn a little about boxing before u go talking out the hole in your face

Floyd could be 42 and you guys would say the old man was “cherry picking” its a joke guys have had 15 years to get at least ONE win over him and it has not happened.. I know I know the Champs and HOFER’s he fought were ALL bums… But in the real world thats just not the case… FMJ is a once in a generation talent, master boxer the epitome of hit and don’t get hit… He has NO equal in the sport. Things that are disadvantages to other boxers are supposedly assets to him, jail time, stress, crazy family, tax issues, women trouble, getting older but after ALL those variables NO ONE is given a real shot at beating him thats amazing…!!!

Posted February 8, 2013 5:30 pm

No one at 147 is a threat, but that does NOT mean that a 36 year old fighter should go looking for guys bigger than him to defeat him thats stupid…Floyds the best in boxing and as such it is what it is… He has spent WAYYYYYYYYY more time at 147 than 154 he has a belt there and if he wants to defend so be it… Guerrero has titles in multiple weight classes its not Floyds fault he is NOT as good as FMJ…

Posted February 8, 2013 5:15 pm 


JoeKidd

Smokescreen. Looks like it’s Guerrero after all. Neither Guerrero nor Alexander is a threat to Floyd. Floyd’s camp will ensure they get a ref that will not allow Guerrero to get away with all that garbage he brings into the ring. And without that garbabe, Guerrero offers nothing. He’s a hug-punch fighter. Well…hug-slap. However, if the ref does allow Guerrero to do his thing, he could mess up pretty boy. As for Alexander, he and Floyd would just be posing all night.

Let me illustrate the difference in class, guys consider Marquez “a cherrypick” for Floyd but he is like Godzilla for Pacquiao??? These same guys are desperately trying to sell Pac Man as the answer for the Floyd Mayweather riddle a few years ago this argument had some real teeth (I always though Floyd would win) but NOW that we know Manny struggles with elite counterepunchers how the hell are guys really thinking he is going to magically outbox boxings BEST, who is taller, with a 5 inch reach advantage and better boxing skills? I know, I know!! He is going to KO Floyd who has NEVER been legitimately down, even though Pacquiao has not stopped ANYONE in YEARS… Margo, Marquez, Bradley, Clottey, even old Shane went 12 rounds and we are supposed to pretend that Manny has his number….

Posted February 8, 2013 12:46 pm 


SREDMOND

Rem, Pac Man did NOT lose his balance he lost his equilibrium and the ability to form sentences when Marquez landed that crushing shot to his face… I mean there are NO excuses for the way he got walloped except he walked into a well timed, well placed shot that really shows how well Marquez operates when hurt, he and a prime Holyfield have to be the BEST in that regard (thinking when hurt)…. I know you want to prop Pac up like Buboy but trying to dismiss his KO loss and hand him the status he had before it are not going to work, Manny can comeback but it will be difficult, a pedestrian performance won’t cut it he is going to have to make believers of people again via REAL ring violence not giving a 40 year old boxer a bloody nose then letting him decapitate you while he damn near needed CPR to get off the canvas…

You appoint yourself social critic yet your views on the sport are not well regarded nor intelligently defensible at times… Do you still think Pacquiao is the dominant force in boxing?? Well we have a piece of video that says he is NOT as well as his wife and mother who are begging him to retire… I know you like Pac Man and so do I but facts are facts he has to fight his way out of a hole and its up for debate if he can…If the man is getting knocked out by a 40 year old Marquez then how can he rate alongside Mayweather who did whatever he wanted to with Marquez??

Joe, NO ONE is pushing for a Mayweather fight anymore with Pacquiao the clamor died down after the 3rd Marquez bout and went into the toilet after the 4th the buzz is about CAN Manny rebound and defeat Marquez impressively… Even a close points win is NOT gonna do much when balanced against the reality of that KO loss….

Posted February 8, 2013 11:10 am 


SREDMOND

Joe, aside from the paycheck whats in it for Floyd to fight Pacquiao coming off of a loss? If he defeats Pac Man he will get very little credit smashing a fighter who just got destroyed in that manner… I AM a Pacquiao fan and you are simply not making sense, its as if you want to rewind the tape and strip that horrid KO off Pac Mans record… Manny has business with JMM that he needs to clear up before he can be in position to face Floyd Mayweather, it seems to me you are MORE scared of Pacquiao facing Marquez who has dogged him and finally crushed him after 8 years…. FMJ should be the LAST thing on any Pacquiao fans mind until he defeats Marquez…..Money aside its a lose lose for Mayweather to fight Pac Man until he (Manny) starts winning again…

Marquez worst rounds were the 5th and 6th till he caught Manny.. He was not even close to battering JMM the way he was free swinging on Margo, I had Manny winning and looking like he might get Marquez outta there, but Pacquiao gets wild and we have seen this before… He paid for the balls out style and pretending he was just slaughtering Marquez defies history the don’t make FOTY candidates from one sided bouts and when the chips were down, Marquez took advantage of Mannys carelessness and totally laid him out… AGAIN there is no arguing with a result like that… He was unconscious and had to visit more than one brain specialist…Pacs alot of fun but that was not a pedestrian event..

Yeah you are in serious denial, and that’s cool.. That KO was the result of a brutal right hand, never saw Ana have to get smelling salts by stepping on a guys foot… Manny Pacquiao has been a great fighter but his career is on the line, should he lose to Marquez again, no excuse in the world will bail him out… Mannys stock has fallen, he is beneath Marquez and others on the P4P list… Sitting around saying he will crush FMJ is not something that’s gonna be taken seriously after witnessing Marquez celebrating and Pacquiao sleeping… Face it he was the VICTIM of the KO of the year!!

Just to be clear “pulverizing” is the perfect word to describe what Pac was doing to Marquez yet the k.d was due to Pac stepping on the side of Marquezs foot and Marquez loosing his balance. Only other fighter to absorb a beating like that from Pac without going down was Margo and correct me if im wrong but wasnt Hernandez his strength trainer for their fight also.

Posted February 7, 2013 11:51 pm 


SREDMOND

Pacquiao was NOT “pulverizing Marquez” he was doing well but even that included a HARD knockdown in round 3… Manny is not gonna be seen as a MAJOR threat to Floyd unless he does something spectacular, he is NOT the biggest puncher that Floyd ever faced again Manny was more of a KO threat 140 and below at this point Pacs weaknesses are documented and have been badly exploited by an AGING Marquez, FMJ would have a field day with the Great Pacquiao, Floyd’s way to smart for Manny…

Agreed marquez can walk through hell and back, but I do think Floyd can hurt him if he catches him with one he don’t see. I think we can both agree its still a great fight that needs to happen for the sake of fans everywhere

Posted February 7, 2013 11:01 pm

REM, Pac Man is not dominating the way he used to, he has to go 12 rounds with everyone he faces, going 12 rounds with Mayweather means a loss Manny does not have the skill nor discipline in the ring to outbox Floyd.. He cannot even figure out how not to get KOed by a 39 year old Marquez… Are you still trying to sell the Judah fight as hope?? Your thesis is sad, broken and illogical it has only resulted in BAD losses for his opponents..

Good analysis down there mayweather86. Pacquiao is still the most dangerous fight out there for Mayweather. Pacquiao was pulverizing Marquez before he got carried away and walked into a dooozer. Pacquiao will be on Floyd’s case like a bee on honey. Floyd DOES NOT have 1 punch KO power, unless he sees Marquez’s science man. I see Floyd getting overwhelmed. Marquez is a tougher fight for Pacquiao than Floyd because Marquez’s pain tolerance is unbelievable. The guy is made of concrete!

Posted February 7, 2013 8:54 pm 


mayweather86

I’ve literally watched both fighters the vast majority of the respective careers. I am a fan of both, I enjoy boxing to the fullest and I’ve spent plenty of time in the ring as well in my younger days. Now let me break it down for you. Pac has a legitimate shot of knocking Floyd out in the early rounds 1-4 . If he is not successful he will be in for a long night. Pac is a great offensive fighter but his strength is and always will be overwhelming the opposition with speed and power. He does not possess great angles or moves to avoid counter punches..hence we are now having fight number 5 with marquez who if u recall recently put pacman to sleep with a beautiful counter punch. Manny can win and very well do so but it will be by ko. He has zero chance of winning a decision. Reality sir.

Im dead tired of this assumption that Floyd is on another level than Pac when the opposite is the reality. Pac is boxings only 4 division lineal champ hes fighter of Floyds decade and has beaten a better crop of fighters. Yeah Floyd toyed with Marquez a fighter taylormade for him but Pac is the complete opposite and Pac has been far more impressive against the rest of their common opponents. As far as the matchup Floyds weakness is Pacs strength the left at range. After blasting Floyd with lefts at range Floyd will look to close distance where he will be open for the righthook the one Zab dropped him with. The truth is Floyd is easy “money” for Pac. Marquez has handled Pacs shots way better than all the w.ws did so hes way tougher than Floyd. Floyd will get smashed and yall wont reconize the fighter ur use to if he ever grows the balls to fight Pac.

Happyboy- Yeah, I wasn’t really expecting one:) You know, Canelo’s stature in the sport certainly is not on par with his level of competition so far, but at least he has some things to bring to the table that Guerrero doesn’t, namely a huge following and exciting skills.

Posted February 7, 2013 5:46 pm 


E in Denver

Jr is a great self promoter. That is different than a Good businessman. That part is irrelevant to real boxing fans anyway. Alexander lost to Mathysse no matter what the official decision was. Alexander was getting easily outboxed by Big Head Bradley until he was butted & quit. 2 different fighters put the pressure on Devon & he came up short in both. Alexander is a world class fighter but we are talking about Jr. Even on paper this is a non-competitive fight. Alexander could be using this “arm injury” as a reason to get out of his contract w/ Brook. I wouldn’t blame Alexander either. But if this is all just a front, it is all unnecessary & more a distraction from a Guerrero fight rather than a promotion of it. Guerrero isn’t a household name but he is a hotter name & better self promoter than Alexander. Not to mention a more interesting match up. Jr will spend 2-3 months of non-stop promotion & show his @ss on TV to build up any fight. Why bait & switch with an even less interesting fight? Doesn’t make sense. I think Alexander vs. Jr is the fight we will see in May.

Mayweather would put Manny on the end of his jab, bury lead rights in his face, slow him down and make him look foolish… I hate saying that but its an honest analysis of that fight should it occur assuming Pac finished that would be a moral victory…Marquez and Pacquiao are BOTH ATG fighters but each man is not in Floyds class… I’m sorry if he could do that to Marquez after 21 months it has to be called for what it is…The Ghost of Mannys past is not gonna be seen as a threat to Mayweather unless he comes back and starts knocking some guys out, first and foremost Juan Manuel Marquez….

Posted February 7, 2013 4:24 pm

JoeKidd, I understand that you are bitter, and frustrated that FMJ cannot be bested but how would Floyd look fighting Pacquiao off a CRUSHING loss like that?? Thats not his style chasing guys post concussion… Manny was not beat on points he was wrecked, people question if he can comeback or if he can even beat Marquez….I know you think its 2010 when Pac was streaking but his cache is DOWN now and if he wants to ressurect he has to DEFEAT a 40 year old fighter before he is even in the conversation to fight Mayweather… You are in REAL denial if you think the former Pacquiao aura is intact or sellable vs Mayweather.. Join the land of the living and think of a more dangerous fighter than Pacquiao to put forth as a Mayweather opponent..

Pacquiao cannot get by Marquez for god’s sake and frankly Manny has NOT been knocking off ANYONE’s block in years… I am a Pac Man fan but the idea that he is the guy to thwart Mayweather is not sellable at this point…Pacquiao was last seen flat on his face against a career best 135 pounder who NEVER booked a win above 140 absent Manny, Marquez is GREAT but Mayweather toyed with him like a dirty priest at the vatican…Interest in Mayweather bouts is ALWAYS high as evidenced by his record breaking sales and constant coverage, he is the face of boxing and that is just a fact!

If Mayweather tweeted his negotiations with Alexander are almost complete and Alexander pulled out of his fight with Brook, then 1+1=2. Mayweather’s fighting Alexander. A good businessman, really? letting a 100 million dollar fight with Pacquaio get away. I think 50 got it right, his fear let Pacquaio slip away by a ko to Marquez. A fight with Devon Alexander who can hardly draw his hometown crowd when he fights is what Mayweather can deliver. He’ll be banking on Alvarez to build the ppv.
This blind worship of Mayweather is a mystery. The days of Leonard/Duran/Hearns when the best fought the best have been sabotaged by Mayweather. In order to be the best you have to fight the best. Mayweather’s a phony!

Patrick2, no way brah-no way. I for one do think Alvarez is to green cause he hasn’t fought anyone good in their prime. GB should’ve been had a Alvarez vs Bundrage unification match, but instead they had him fighting old has beens or smaller fighters. If you look at Alvarez list of opponents all you see are has beens and smaller guys-that’s it. I don’t know why these other champs to go after BUndrage-he’s the less skilled champion and everyone likes a unification bout. I say no way would anyone believe Martinez was over hyped no freaking way you can be over hyped beating a good ( a lil past prime) Pavlik, a good primed Williams and IMO a pretty good and tough primed Chavez Jr no way. Now I could see fans sayn Martinez would be drained at 154, I could see that. Alvarez is just plain old unproven, but everyone seems to think he’s the next best thing-when you watch him it’s clear he has star potential. Mayweather has Austin Trout-the 154lbs champ he could face-everyone knows he’s good-that’s a good fight on paper. There’s just better options than the one’s Floyd always wanna take-as boxing fans we can’t possibly believe that between two hot divisions 147- 154 that The Ghost and Alexander is as good as it gets for the so called best fighter on the planet.

terro tim, I dig everything you said except Pac has changed his life stye up and he has endorsements he can fall back on. No one cares to endorse Floyd Mayweather cause he acts like a fool. Anyway, your right, part of being a good business man is making the money, properly saving the money you made and repeating the process. Like 50 said-he fights, make the money, spend the money; fights, make the money and spend the money. For him to come from a family of fighters who made some good money, the way Floyd acts you would think he never seen a dime in his life until the De La Hoya fight.

Who has Alexander beat that is on Floyds level? Nobody. Floyd is just a damn coward like anyone who justifies his cowardly ways

Ultimate businessman, Cowardly mans man. If he’s using this to make an unappealing fight more appealing then either way he is avoiding the best. As usual. Pacquiao just got laid out and Marquez supplied the blueprint. What more does he want? Oh to make sure he wins against good but not the best fighters. I like Guerrero and even Alexander is good but there are guys in and around his weight that are greats that he could be fighting and solidifying his legacy. Nope he will just be remembered as someone who coulda been great but was always to scared to take on the best IN THEIR PRIME. And sorry but the Mayweather lovers aren’t gonna be strong enough to keep his legacy alive. After all they are the minority and he still has to live up to the like of Ali, both Sugar Rays, Tyson, RJJ, and SO many more. Mayweather fans aren’t influential enough to change the FACTS. And the facts are he has NO great rematches or trilogies(cause if a guy almost beats him he’s too scared to fight again, even if the opponent arguably beat him) he’s arguably lost several times. He can’t even live up to the like of ODLH and barely got a W over a very out of his prime DLH. In 20 years he will be what Pernell Whitaker is now haha sorry

Interesting angle on why he started talking about Alexander but I think more than anything it is to get Guerrero to agree to a deal. Mayweather is no business man. This guy couldn’t even come up with the coin to go in with Fifty Cent on their promotional company. Sure he can make money but that is only part of being a great business man, the other part is retaining that money and having it work for you. Floyd fails miserably, like many fighters before him, on those fronts. Get rid of your music label, those just suck your bank account dry. Stop your gambling, your awful at it. Get rid of the hommies, they provide you nothing, take your money and will be gone when your money is. Pac vs Floyd is going to happen, neither can hold on to their fortunes.

But you take the time to come into an article that’s all about Floyd? Doesn’t make alot of sense.

The Money Man doesn’t plan to fight Alexander. He just did that so that way whenever they say they’re gonna fight Guerrero somehow it would sound more appealing. They’re both sorry fights in my opinion. I think that for this event to be successful Canelo is gonna play a major role.

Yes, believe it or not I’ve read many posts that have said Martinez, Sergio Martinez, hasn’t fought anyone decent and that if he faced a real middleweight he’d get knocked out. As for Alvarez, when he became a possibility some were writing that he hasn’t matured enough as a fighter and that’s why Floyd was going to choose him. Why can’t these people just enjoy watching Floyd fight — he’s truly sublime in the ring, as any of his opponents will tell you, and anyone who truly knows the sport of boxing. I say enjoy the gifted while they’re at the peak of their powers because it doesn’t last long.

No one would complain about Canelo or Martinez. IMHO, those are the only two legitimate challenges he has left.

So which fighter is a legitimate opponent for Floyd? If he picks Alvarez, his critics will say the kid is too young.. too green. If he picks the Ghost, they’ll say the Ghost is too raw, isn’t skilled enough. If he were to fight Martinez, they’d say Martinez isn’t any good… all hype. I mean really, Floyd’s critics will never be happy, no matter WHO faces. When will they realize that Floyd is very special… that what he does in the ring is truly remarkable. I know he’s THE most well-schooled fighter I have ever seen, and I’ve been a big fan of boxing since the early 1970s.

mayweather makes as much money with alexander and guerro as hewould with a real threat likle trout . it amazes me

1. Floyd will be 36 by the time this fight happens. 2. Floyd will have been out of the ring for almost a year, and spent part of that time in jail. 3. Alexander is no joke — he’s a world class fighter (check out his resume — only Tim Bradley has beaten him — and Bradley is no joke or Pac wouldn’t have faced him). 4. No matter who Floyd decides to fight there are ALWAYS those who will claim he’s cherry-picking — they won’t be happy until Floyd loses.

Juggernaut-Alexander couldn’t handle Bradley’s butting but he out Punched Bradley. Compubox agrees with ME on that.

Devon Alexander couldn’t handle Bradley. I wouldn’t spend a penny for this fight

I believe the title of this article should read “Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s Fans Ultimate Boxing Suckers” and then add “It is a fact that Floyd Mayweather Jr. is boxing’s ULTIMATE Businessman thanks to his suckers…I mean fans… who would willingly pay top dollars to see him getting the easier fights possible. Floyd is so afraid to lose he will not dare challenge the likes of Canelo or Pacquio, but rather choses an opponent who poses no risk whatsoever. But why should he? Why face the likelihood of losing or even getting knockout when his suckers…I mean fans…will give their wallets to see him fighting bums?”

Then the article should continue, “What’s more, his suckers… I mean fans…love him so much that after Floyd makes a mockery of them by burning the money they so willingly gave him in front of cameras, they (the suckers)…I mean fans…will willingly give him more.”

The article should end like this, “Floyd should continue to avoid the best fighters out there and don’t take any risk whatsoever…and why not? As long as his suckers…I mean fans…continue to open their wallets and give him their hard-earned money, there’s no reason for him taking a risk. Heck, he could fight his grandma and his suckers…I mean fans…will gladly give him money. Sure, he will continue making a mockery of all those suckers…I mean fans…by going on TV showing his big house (who he purchased using his suckers…I mean fans…hard-earned money) and, yes, burn a few more dollar bills. But, hey, if his suckers…I mean fans…are happy, why not? What you say grandma…are you up for the challenge?”

The only reason why Fraud has money is because of the nieve fans who fork out the money for his ppv antics. If it weren’t for PPV fraud would be broke. The ignorant fans throw their money at this clown for the fraud circus to continue to roll along….Sad stuff imo!!

NOPE. People keep HOPING that I’d been gotten rid of because they’re tired of the TRUTH, the FACTS, and ME picking the WINNER. MY advice to them is to go read a comic book or watch a SCI FI movie. Because this is all NON FICTION here when you’re talking to ME.

Yeah dont think Ghost has much of a chance but guarantee he will bring more excitement than Alexander. If we are not gonna see Floyd fight someone that could be competitive at least we should get a guy that goes after him and tries to exchange.I really dont think I would pay for Alexander and Floyd.

Chicago guy- WELCOME back!! I’ve been waiting to tell you that Pacquiao got knocked OUT just as I predicted!!!! I am the GREATEST Fight Prophet ever born!!!!

Floyd jr. vs Alexander is good like an sleeping pills.

Sleeping pills boring fight

Posted February 6, 2013 4:59 pm 


Chicago guy

Correcct Floyd jr. is ultimate,unique or smart boxing businesman because he will not fight an opponent that will risk his zero record investment that will affecct his marketability. Alexander is the weakest opponent as compared to Guererro and alvarez.

speak for youself son, I’m a hardcore fan and sure as s*it is brown don’t want to see a boring pitter patter fight with Alexander, we want excitement and the Ghost brings that.

Casual? Your the one who’s unaware that Alexander will lose the belt for backing out of the brook fight. It will not be another belt.

The casual fan crowd hated his fight vs Bailey. I watched i twice and while Alexander is a GREAT boxer, he is cautious above when he is aggressive. Hardcore fans would like a Alexander/Mayweather matchup but not guys who want a KO. Count how many times each guy has been holding in previous fights and double it if they get it on. I can see Floyd’s big reason would be to A) get a higher percentage of the overall Money pot. B) Grab another 147lb belt.
Alexander would accept 1.5 mill or less because his demand is so low since the Bradley fight where he got a payday that he won’t see much of those otherwise outside of Pac-Man or Mayweather. He lost to Bradley so he isn’t doing any of the undefeated avoidance of fighters to keep a 0 loss record. His small % of a floyd fight would still b 3-6 regular title defenses for him ( or 3-4 years during his prime) So I can see the reasoning for the fighters.
It’s just a bad matchup for a lot of casual fans..
