Boy Its gotta hurt watching PBF get all those accolades while piling up some of the most impressive performances ever seen. It must hurt you seeing his face in Forbes highest paid athletes every year. Yet you still buy every PPV fight hoping, dreaming, praying that this will be the day, the day someone puts him in his place………… SAD SAD life LMAO

Mayweather chooses not to knock people out, instead favoring using his technical ability to get easy victories. When he chooses to for a knock-out he has always had the power to do it. For the geniuses that claim he doesnt have the power, why do you think he gets all that respect in the ring??? There is a reason Money has been the least hit boxer in boxing history; and its not because of his unbelievable defensive skills, its also because he has the speed AND power to make you pay when he counters!!! Speed is nothing by itself!!!

Again you are selling the same story “let size do what skills cannot” and Floyd does NOT have every advantage Guerrero is 7 years younger than the now 36 year old Mayweather and Robert has verbalized his OWN thoughts on what time may have done to FMJ’s mobility… As for power is Floyd a huge puncher?? He has not even stopped 50% of the WWs he faced, Berto did more than that percentage wise and Guerrero handled his best shots with relative ease whereas we saw Berto on the canvas!! Your size thesis is debunked Guerrero was strong and ripped at 147 and FMJ is a guy who comes to the ring at 150 to 151…

shredmond I am not saying mayweather should move to middle supermiddle light heavy. I know he is to smal for that . that is not his weight class.. I am saying floyd could have picked trout or alvarez because floyd has fought at jr middle weight. I belive he holds a title at welterweight and jr middle weight . So suggesting that floyd face trout or alvarez who are jr middeleweights . is not like Im saying he should fight klitchko . Guerrero is now a welterweight who was a feather weight and just two fights ago he was a lightweight often going the distance with manny of lightweights . so if guerrero was not a big puncher at lightweight he wont be a big puncher at welter He i is to small not skilled enough and not powerful enough to beat mayweather. Mayweather as a boxer has every atvange over Guerrero . Now if mayweather were to step in with trout as a jr middle weight I would not be as sure of a mayweather victory . as a boxing fan I think mayweather trout would be a more compettive match instead of a showcase the way mayweather over guerrero is going to be

Frank Guerrero is the SAME size as Floyd Mayweather YOU want Mayweather in the ring with BIGGER boxers because it seems to be a fair way to negate his advantage in skills… Thats not exactly correct thinking Floyd has already travelled 24 pounds during his career whats wrong with him facing a comprably sized 4 weight Champion… Floyd is a SMALL WW

Not to worry. Ole Floyd only fights guys he knows he can beat. He doesn’t know the meaning of the word Champion. Boxing will remember him as a COWARD.

it may not be a gross mismatch but floyd has every advantage. guerrero is a brave smaller fighter who comes foward which plays right into mayweathers hands . glad to see guerrero get a big money fight . but again outa of 3 opponents trout alvarez and guerrero mayweather picked the smallest weakest guy the safest fight . if trout proves to be as crafty as he looks against alvarez . I doubt floyd will ever face austin trout

I have read some ridiculous articles on Eastside boxing over the years but every now and then you get one that just stops you in your tracks. Guerrero has seen his stock rise for the wrong reasons- pure Hype!!! His win against Aydin while impressive was never spectacular. especially considering that Aydin is nothing more than a power puncher with no technical skills. Berto(another over-hyped fighter) was coming off the longest layoff of his career and a failed drug test, so nothing to write home about. Now lets get back to this abomination of a boxing article. So apparently Floyd doesn’t have “power” to worry Guerrero??? I am guessing you got that from the same place where you found this one ” It makes sense that a lot of fight fans are picking The Ghost to cause a huge upset.” HAHAHAHAHA you and Stevie wonder perhaps. Guerrero is over-matched period!! he lacks power or speed, two qualities you need to at least survive twelve rounds with “Money”. I predict Floyd being more aggressive in this fight, pushing the action like he did in the early rounds against Ortiz. This fight ends with Guerrero on the floor!! Floyd maybe 36 but he is a young 36 with no wars under his belt to affect him. He still has his speed & power but most importantly his technical ability has gotten even better. Just 3 fights ago people were speculating that Floyd didn’t have the same legs, now its his skills are declining- wishful thinking!!! This is another hand-picked opponent for Floyd, chosen only to exaggerate his boxing greatness to a naive public that actually thinks its always a fiar match-up!!

And YES Hidalgo you were REALLY STUPID to suggest that Marquez does not care about winning or losing vs Mayweather or anyone.. HIs ATG career and persistence are legendary, that blind hatred of Floyd will NEVER detract from the clinic he put on Marquez… JMM needed his brother in the ring to be able to combat the unmatched skill, quickness and Ring IQ… NO ONE can handle FMJ at the appropriate weight…

Posted February 28, 2013 12:57 pm 


SREDMOND

Bears, you really ALWAY exceed my expectations as to how DUMB you can be… Guerrero is NOT going back to 130, he has not fought there in YEARS… He also looked like a BEAST at the weight smashing Berto to the canvas and taking his best shots without flinching… Seriously THINK before you comment, I know that is like asking a dog to write an essay but do your best… NUT!

Posted February 28, 2013 12:53 pm 


SREDMOND

Hidalgo, you are making excuses Marquez has ALWAYS been in shape and no matter what strategy he employs against Mayweather he will lose unless it involves he and his brother Rafael in the ring at the same time… NOW you are bashing a GREAT fighter (Marquez) saying he was slacking against the MOST skilled opponent of his career… Its clear you will say ANYTHING to discredit Mayweathers dominance but the tape tells us the ONLY story that matters little man….600k was MORE than enough for Marquez to deal with that piddly 2 pound difference..

Posted February 28, 2013 10:51 am 


Hidalgo

Also, SRedmond, oh master of speaking with forked tongue, I said that Marquez didn’t care if he lost because greed over-rode his thought of losing. And that is what happened. Otherwise, he would have been in better shape for the fight, had a better strategy, and he wouldn’t have signed a last-minute amendment to the fight contract that paid him more than $600,000K more if Floyd didn’t make weight. Lo and behold, Floyd didn’t make weight and Marquez was $600,000 richer. Like I said, he didn’t care if he lost–he was fighting for the money. He just didn’t expect to get blown out the way he did.

Posted February 28, 2013 1:23 am 


Hidalgo

SRedmond, Braggadamus said “Mayweather had never fought at 154 or even attempted to before facing De la Hoya but he took the Fight for the money and still WON.” But you didn’t call him “STUPID in the extreme” even though Braggadamus clearly inferred that Mayweather took the fight only for the money. Just as I said Marquez did when he decided to fight Mayweather. Oh well, your two-facedness rears its ugly head again.

“the idea that he just did not care if he lost is STUPID in the extreme…” Cuz you said so, SRedmond? You know better than I do? It’s equally STUPID if you think otherwise, because you DON’T know. So, how does it feel to be STUPID in the extreme? You know–like you are?

The Prince

Gurerro will have his moments early, but Floyd will breakdown his gameplan, make the right adjustments, and dominate Gurerro for a points win. The only thing that can go wrong for Mayweather is if he shows up in the ring and realizes he aged badly. With that said, Floyd has the defense and the IQ to stay in the pocket and still win.

I think that a lot of these writers are going to get fooled on May 4th. Floyd is not on the decline. In fact; I truly believe that he could have easily boxed Cotto to a BLOW OUT win last year but elected to stand in there a little and make it more entertaining because he knew that down the stretch Cotto would fade some as he usually does in big fights. I think he is going to put on a boxing clinic on May 4th.

How is Guerrero too small? He and Floyd are the same size and Robert was hard and muscular against Berto who he tossed around..

Frank, what’s the issue with Mayweather facing a guy in the division where he is Champ?? Trout got all this buzz because he beat who?? Miguel Cotto who Floyd had beat the fight BEFORE him Canelo and Trout are natural 154 pounders and they are slated to fight, let’s see who wins that fight first BOTH are young guys let’s not forget EVERYONE wants to fight Floyd for the $$$$$$$… Besides of Canelo wins then why not him?

Posted February 27, 2013 10:37 pm 


frank

ggg and the other middle weights are to big for floyd I agree but how about trout he is a jr middle and mayweather has been jr midleweigh. this would be a good match up and even though maywather would be a favorite not a sure thing . but it seems the only time floyd will take a fight since welterweight if its a sure thing usally. guerro is to small among other things

Posted February 27, 2013 7:47 pm 


SREDMOND

Guerrero showed he was STRONG at the weight by taking some HARD shots from Berto and NEVER going down nor being seriously hurt, he was ALSO able to hurt Berto and put him down 2X and swelled up BOTH of his eyes terribly, forcing Andre to wear shades during his postfight interview where Guerrero told him to STOP making excuses to his FACE… Guerrero is going to lose because he is facing the best but he is a TOUGH, determined fighter…

Bears is NOT remotely credible NO WAY that Mayweather is going to or should fight GGG hes a full blown MW fighter who could probably go up to 168 if he wanted to… Basically Floyd should fight ANYONE that his detractors can drum up NO MATTER what division… He has an issue with Guerreo going up in weight but its cool for a 5 weight Champ to go up even FARTHER… This guy is an inconsistent clown… Floyd Mayweather is NOBODYS MW fighter

All Pac had to do was take the test in 2010 and the fight would of happened but he came up with a bunch of lame excuses when he simply should of said no. And do you notice how Martinez does not come below 157? Do you notice how cut he is when he weighs in. He is not making 154. Like I said when they had the Williams rematch Williams wanted the fight at 154 and Martinez said he can not make 154 because he has put on to much muscle when he made the move to middleweight. This is from his own mouth. So until I actually see him make 154, where there are more money fights at then I can’t believe he can make 154. He would make more money at 154 then he would at 160. That should tell you something right there. That is why he fights the B level fighters at 160 instead of taking on any real threats at 160. Actually Macklin was the only real threat who was a contender and whom was winning the fight until he ran out of gas

@Hecdog – Guerrero simply doesn’t have the skills to beat Mayweather!!! His fighting style is tailor made for Mayweather to treat him like the bull v. the matador. It’s a gross mismatch but Guerrero deserves a shot.

martinez has fought b/w 146 and his heaviest ever has been 159 against the bigger chavez jr. not only should fraud have fought pac long ago (excuse machined himself outta that one) he shouldve fought martinez who is in no way much bigger then fraud is over his opponents. guerrero’s has been fighting in the low 130s on average and is not rocketing up to 147. LOL. fraud enters the ring at 150 something his last outting and the fraud nuthuggers claim. NOOOOOOOOO he cant meet the martinez’s and golovkins. NOOOOOOOOO guerrero is not even a 147 pounders. if people earn fraud fights by beating common fraud opponents then clearly this fight should be fraud vs trout. this has been seriously mismanaged yet again by the cherry picker. but in their eyes its business as usual and “managed” perfectly. as i said fraud mayweathe will have to all the sudden get old in the ring for this ghost to win.

I just finished watching the Guerrero vs Berto fight for the 4th time and I am amazed at the referee’s incompetence. I know that many are giving Guerrero a chance, and why fans wouldn’t; he is a strong intelligent fighter; however, I doubt that he will fight the same way with Mayweather as he did with Berto. First, the referee in that fight was awful! He allowed a lot of illegal things to happened. I am not saying that Robert wouldn’t had won; however, it would have been a different fight with a competent referee. Mayweather will exploit these situation. He will agree to a referee that will not allow that negative type of fighting. Second, Berto is a static target that tried to fight like Mayweather in that fight but had too many flaws. Mayweather will stick and move, and will not allow to be drawn into a brawl. Third, Guerrero is not a puncher; he punches hard but he does not have a devastating punch needed to stop a fighter like Mayweather (Remember Trinidad vs Whitaker). Finally, Floyd is physically much bigger than Guerrero. In Mayweathers last fights, the size differences became apparent in the ring and became a factor in the fights. I would like to see an upset but reality tells me otherwise. Mayweather is in a position of control and he will pick his rivals carefully. Styles make fights and I can only see a few fighters with a legitimate chance to beat Floyd: Martinez, Paquiao, and maybe Mathysse. Canelo is a gimp hyped by a company that is trying to make money of the fact that he is a white Mexican and has not been paired with a legitimate fighter yet.; Floyd will beating by decision easily. With all that being said, I hope I am wrong! Yes, I hope I am very wrong! I think that Guerrero is a man with lots of integrity and honor. I am still moved by the way he approached his wife’s cancer situation. Again, I hope I am wrong.

Gents, I’m happy that everybody who faces Floyd is always “given chance to upset him”. It’s no different with Guerrero yet Guerrero is no better than Cotto, Marquez, De la Hoya, maybe even Ortiz for that matter and yet we all saw the results. His ONLY asset is his heart which also gets cancelled out by Floyd’s heart. Believe you me, Floyd has helluva heart. Top that off with his unmatched boxing skill, you have a walk over. Guerrero has a decent punching power, so is Floyd. He certainly doesn’t have a “devastating” punching power. Even if he had, if he can’t touch Floyd with his hands it’s going to be useless. He claims to be a multi-disciplined boxer who presents different styles for all his fights. You gotta present different styles because each fighter is different from others, duh! He’s never seen what he’s about to see and “experience”. Floyd will tame him and make him a fan and follower. Ask Corley and Judah! They are fans and followers. Guerrero believes he can annihilate Floyd’s style because he did so in Berto. Berto was no near emulating Floyd’s fighting style. He’s getting false comfort on false issues. In the UNLIKELY event of an upset, I bet you Guerrero would lose the title within the 1st or 2nd defense. He’s no special fighter, I’m sorry. FLOYD ALL THE WAY . . . IT’S SHOWTIME, BABY!

it’s time for an upset but it will most likely be a mismatch. just how blatant depends on how well Mayweather performs. Guerrero’s there for the ride and i anticipate he’ll make the most of it but Mayweather doesn’t figure to be upset in 2013. Floyd by TKO, which is a standing prediction v. any welter opponent. i think he’s still at the top of his game in 2013 and who can compete with that? not Marquez, not Pacquiao*, not Guerrero. upset of the decade otherwise.

Mayweather had never fought at 154 or even attempted to before facing De la Hoya but he took the Fight for the money and still WON. Manny needs to take a page out of Mayweather’s book and next time when he takes a Fight for the money learn how to take the WIN along WITH it…The Mayweather-Marquez was GREATER than a Championship Fight. It was the CURRENT #2 P4P Fighter in the Sport vs. the retired #1 P4P Fighter in the Sport. The #1 P4P Mayweather BLITZED Marquez giving him the most lopsided defeat of his career. WOW!

“He destroyed the guy that destroyed Manny when Marquez was even LESS ring worn…” Some victory that was, huh? Uh, no. Marquez had never fought at welterweight, or even attempted to, before fighting Floyd Mayweather jr. Marquez took that fight for the money. He didn’t care if he lost because his greed overridded that thought, but he didn’t expect to get embarassingly shut out the way he did. Additionally, Floyd cheated on his weight for that fight. Intentionally. Remember that? BTW, it was also a non-title fight. It was a money fight–plainly, solely, simply.

Most of these comments about Floyd cherrypicking opponents are rediculous. Saying that Floyd only picks opponents he thinks he can beat is just a stupid argument. What fighter picks opponents who they think will beat them? No one takes a fight thinking they will loose (minus a few who just look for paychecks). EVERY fighter should have the confidence to think they will win. Guerrero thinks he can beat Floyd – I disagree, but if Guerrero didn’t think he had a shot, he probably wouldn’t have taken the fight.

Not a big fan of Guerrero – his religious insanity is a bit much for me – but he is definately exciting and I think he’s earned the shot at Floyd’s belt, especially by beating Berto. I wouldn’t go so far as to put a bet on Guerrero to win, but a mismatch it is not.

Of course Floyd analyzes his opponents ALL boxers do he is just better at taking advantage of their flaws than anyone… Thats called GREATNESS, its a quality that he has that 99% of boxers do not… At the end of the day there are 2 well trained professionals in the ring but FMJ’s god given skills render them subordinates in the ring, its like a lion vs a shark while fighting in the ocean…

Wow what a genius statement this guy says that Floyd analyzes his opponents down to a science… Isn’t that what ALL fighters do? Isn’t that why they watch videotape and spar opponents similar to the one they are going to face? Its funny that Guerrero is droning on about Floyd slipping and we all know he is not moving as much as he used to but these possible deficits are NOT really given much credence the problem for FMJ detractors is that Mayweather knows how to win…. And until they see him lose they are going to STAY pissed off… Guerrero is a PRIME 4 weight World Champion but none of that matters because he is facing FMJ so consequently he is now relegated to bum status by detractors….
