What do u mean Floyd hasn’t turned down afight

Posted March 8, 2013 6:49 pm

i think they should have a lightweight tournament

Ricky Burns WBO vs Miguel Vazquez IBF
WINNER FACES WINNER
LOSER FACES LOSER
Adrien Broner WBC vs Richar Abril WBA

THEN WE WILL HAVE ONE UNIFIED CHAMPION AND PUT THE RING MAGAZINE TITLE TO THE MAN WITH ALL THE BELTS

CHI GAL, a six-fight deal isn’t a “last hurrah”. it’s a statement (at least on paper) of “i’m not going anywhere any time soon”. in fact, at the rate that Floyd fights these days, that’s a three-year commitment. about three years beyond Pacquiao’s* own expiration date . . . :twisted:

@ Chicago guy the only person Floyd didntt fight was Manny, who turned down 30 mil, and then gets Koed by Marquez a guy the Floyd whopped for 12 rounds. Cherrypicking? I guess you think Cotto, Ortiz and even Dela Hoya were easy fights? Manny never defined his career Floyd will go on to fight Guerro and Alverez both are at the top of the division right now they are the hostest fighters in the game. What more do you want? You sound like a duck with a wooden head

Broner is 23 years old and guys are ALREADY saying “Hey if you are NOT a 3 weight Champion then you are a fraud, fake and cherry picker” Well thats just crazy, Broner has gotten titles in two divisions and people are CRYING about who THEY think he should face in divisions that he has never even compted in… Its the same story with ultra talented flasy fighters, lets find a BIGGER guy to possibly negate those skills… Basically we should NOT respect ANY fighter who simply dominates his own division is that the message these days? Seems to be what I am hearing…. Leonard, Hearns, Jones, Pacquiao, ODH, and Mayweather are part of a SMALL number of boxers who have fought across 4 or more weight classes and been Champions does this mean they are the ONLY greats in the game? Guys are so thirsty to see Broner in the ring with a 140 pounder they lose ALL sense of proportion…

Te Tumbong,
Correct Fraudfloyd is not stupid to risk his zer0 record to risky opponent/s, he will continue cherrypicking until he retires with his zero with him.he is more dedicated to the sport beause his 6 fight contract to Sh-cbs is his last hurray from the sport so he need to be more smarter as before to keep his zero of fighting handpick opponent that he is sure of winning VIVA FRAUDIE.

i’ve always said that there is no fighter more fiercely competitive than Floyd. i don’t doubt that his competitive ego has been inspired by Broner’s ascent up the ranks with a style very similar to Floyd’s. the only suspense is how long Floyd can maintain his own #1 P4P fighting ability beyond his own era. in fact, i don’t doubt that the same question is motivating Floyd to take some chances before he closes out his great career. ultimately, Mayweather isn’t stupid and he respects the fight-game and other fighters approaching his skill level will only increase his dedication.

I doubt Broner fight Paulie. That he has his mandatory to fight anyways. Broner is gonna fight Burns if Burns can win and then move to 140. There are many good fights and lots of money to make at that weight class

“Broner doesn’t have a Corrales, Chicanito Hernandez, Even an Augustus or Manfredy on his resume.” – E in Denver is correct. All of those guys Floyd beat from 130-135 were far superior to anyone Broner’s faced so the comparisons are extremely premature. And the PFP talk is absurd. Now Broner wants to duck Lucas Matthysse at 140 and go after Malignaggi at 147. So Broner is skipping the reputation building period of Floyd’s early career and going straight to the cherypicking stage. Unfortunately networks like HBO as well as boxing fans today have such low standards they accept that.

Just say you don’t like Broner and Floyd and move on. Because to say both are “boring” shows your ignorance of what boxing skill is — you simply don’t understand and/or can’t appreciate their talents.

“Yeah, I bet you never saw any of the real fighters, Duran, Hagler, Marciono, Leanord, Hearns, Louis etc….”

I’ve been a boxing fan since the early 1970s. And you…?

“They never ran around or did the chicken shuffle run duck and shoulder roll ALL nite long.”

What are you talking about? Broner stands right of his opponent, and his opponents can’t hit him. James Toney, while using a different style, had the same amazing ability of not getting hit while standing right in front. That’s boxing, baby!

“That ain’t boxing that’s showboating BS!! Learn your boxing son!!”

Showboating is shoe-shinning, the shuffle or the windup punch. What Broner does IS boxing — hit, don’t be hit — write that down so you remember. Dude, unless you’re 75+ don’t call me son.

Posted March 5, 2013 8:47 pm 


E in Denver

Broner doesn’t have a Corrales, Chicanito Hernandez, Even an Augustus or Manfredy on his resume. All these guys Jr beat by the same point in his career. Guys like Broner & Canelo are prototype careers for the future stars. Young stars have always been brought along slowly & cautiously. But you used to have them step up before they won a world title. Now vacated world titles & predictable opponents are the norm. You won’t see too many young stars matched like Vargas & Tyson were early in their career.

As far as fighters calling out FMJ, truth is, that is the biggest $$ for everyone. When Oscar was around, and FMJ was still a wannabe Oscar, everyone was calling out Oscar from Fly to Heavy in the same manner.

Posted March 5, 2013 6:28 pm 


stupid loser

What ever you want to say about FMJ, I am not sure how anyone can say Broner is at his level, especially referring to defense, when his best win was DeMarco? Yes he did destroy DeMarco and clearly has talent, but I think a better assessment can be made when he moves up to 140 and takes on the top names there. We will see if he is a Berto or a real top talent we he takes down the Garcias’, Matthysses’, and Rios’, etc..

Happy boy your Ricky Burns is not all that. Is all politics wish I don’t think you will understand Boring Vasquez wants to fight Burns in the States to get a fair chance to win by point wish he is really good at. To me that being sick b.s. from Vasquez I believe is to bring Burns to the States and you want to crown Burns who has no fights in the states. Like I said before I believe Broner will beat both but doing and talking are to different things. To me Broner will avoid Vasquez if Vasquez is to beat Burns. Is just styles make fight and is the smart thing to do. As you can see when Broner was ask about taking the winner of Burn & Vasquez , Broner avoided the topic. He answer was who are they I don’t have a idea who they are. Really from the 135 champ to another 135 champ. Either you are a groupie or you like wearing blinders.

Now suddenly Haimat and Co have decided that Broner is gonna be able to fight at 154? Well lets see that happen before the nonsense ensues thats a BIG jump… As for how he made 130 he was a KID who’s body is growing ask 5″10 ODH how he made 130 or Shane making 135 or Diego Corrales or Floyd Mayweather, Robert Guerrero or Erik Morales… Trying to position Broner as some sort of exception in the boxing world is GOOFY in the extreme guys want to invalidate his wins because he was able to compete in lower divisions… He says he makes 135 comfortably now, more power to him if he decides to WIPE out the division.

Haimat, seriously your simply a step behind as always and as one of my former groupies you should have ALOT more respect LOL… That said its funny how you default to Gavin Rees when Broner took on the percieved TOP fighter at 135 when he made the leap! he did NOT start with Gavin Rees nor anyone UNDER Championship caliber he took on Demarco and slaughtered him… He called out Burns who ran from that challenge faster than a Gazelle and he is STILL calling out Burns which is a REAL effort at cleaning out a division… You are riding his nuts because you can see his talent is upper echelon and you are fearful that you will have to deal with ANOTHER flashy, arrogant, brash athlete who MOST importantly BACKS it up… Deal with it or keep sending over the Ree’s and Burns and watch them get CLOBBERED…Growup and learn that being nice and civil does NOT make you a better fighter of Floyd would have lost LONG ago :)

Broner started his career at LW and could very well fight at LMW before his career has ended. It’s a mystery how he ever made the 130 limit and even 135. The kid is a natural LWW at this point and I think he would give anyone 135 to 147 problems, including Floyd. In two years, I see him beating Floyd.

Posted March 5, 2013 11:42 am 


SREDMOND

At the end of the day ALL boxers from 135 to 160 somehow have FMJ’s name falling out of their lips in some capacity.. He has TRULY taken over boxing in a BIG way! In order to fullfill the requests of all these fighters he would need to fight 4X per year and move up and down in weight like a Yo Yo, when he and Guerrero faced off guess who was bigger? but of course the demented will swear that Guerrero is no bigger than Gavin Rees… Floyd has to just keep doing Floyd, make that money, keep dominating and let his detractors DIE with envy and jealousy…No one is liked by everyone especially when you are on top!

Posted March 5, 2013 11:40 am 


Haimat

The kid is selling himself not only in the ring but much more effectively outside of the ring following Floyd’s blue print. It’s working out great and with the same handlers I don’t expect him to deviate from that path.
Look for Broner to fight guys like Rees that have no shot at beating him. Expect Broner to stay far away from guys like Mathysse, Guerrero and basically everyone that would give the problem real problems. Broner would most probably fight anyone they put in front of him. What’s preventing the fans from getting great competitive fights with Broner are his handlers with Al Haymond leading the way.

Thats a STRETCH when history has ONLY yielded maybe 4 or 5 men who effectively competed across that many divisions… This kid is 23, let him write his story filling in the blanks now with legendary accomplishments to come is bush league in the extreme.. He has accomplished some terrific things but he has a LONG way to go in order to rank with the Greats….

Ones a proven great and the other is on the path to being great (maybe), but has done nothing to have his name mentionaed alongside a legendary fighter. yes, there are similarities in the fighters themselves, but I look at records to determine where a fighter is at, and while Floyd is at the top, Broner is not even a top 40 guy in boxing today when it comes to active fighters accomplishments.

The was at 130 for the first part of his career then moved up what 2 fights ago. Let the man become the champion at 135 and then move up. He will become the champ once he takes on the guest that is fighting Vasquez or Vasquez himself, whomever wins that fight and then he should move up to 140. I don’t call that cherry picking I call it a smart move, this will only enhance his legacy

Broner and Mayweather are almost the same they take fights that they can win and avoid fights that are not sure. If you listen to Broner on his last fight he is already avoiding the other champs in his own weight class.

I don’t think it is considered moving him slowly if he is cleaning out a division and getting the championship belt. I just think that is building a resume. The high profile fighterst at 140 arent going anywhere. They will be there next year when Broner does move up. No he shouldn’t be on any P4P list at the moment but he is definitely on his way. As for Andre Ward, he is probably already a HOF fighter with his credentials.

The Prince

Floyd Mayweather makes other men follow his lead, not the other way around. Many fighters, rather they admit it or not, picked up something from Mayweather and try to imitate it. Floyd is only fighting more often now, because he landed a blockbuster deal that requires him to do so. This should also stop the “Floyd is afraid to lose his 0″ talk. If that were true, he’d been retired or he wouldn’t have taken the six fight deal, knowing with his age, he now has a good chance to lose that 0.

Peej, i don’t agree with the move him slow idea and . They should be pushing him to fight the best talent comparable to him, in this case going up to 140. I get tired of them milking talent for years. I see it as a disservice to the fighter and the fans. There is no challenges for him and 135 why stick around? If his is that good, then he will rise to the next level.

Broner did fight a decent fighter when he won the belt. He has yet to be in a weight class to where he will be challenged. But hating on him at the moment is just weak. He is moving up slowly, why make the big jumps right away. He needs to get the Ring belt at 135, move to 140 and then do what he needs to do there since that division is loaded and if he keeps with his ways then he can move to 147. But as of now he has only done 1 thing and that is win. Only questionable outing was the win against, can’t remember his name, I thought he did lose but he got the nod. So at the moment all he knows how to do is beat the guy in front of him.
