@Hecdog~ Your hatred of Floyd is well documented. At this point there is nothing Floyd can do that would get you to admit he is a great fighter. You call him a runner but, let me remind you he is fighting other top pro fighters. A very good skill to have as a great fighter is the ability to cut off the ring. There is no excuse for fighters allowing Floyd to move around the ring the way he does. You, me and I’m sure every other fighter and boxing fan knows what Floyd is going to do in the ring come fight night and yet time after time they can’t cut the ring off effectively enough to get the win. I wonder why? Maybe because Floyd processes skills that are much better than the others he has faced. I can see people not liking his style but, to discredit everything he has done is too unfair. He deserves more credit than you give him. I know you love Pacman but, the way you act as if it would be a foregone conclusion that Pacman beats Floyd is foolish. I think it would be a good fight and to be honest when both are on their A game nobody can say who wins.Posted June 18, 2013 12:53 am
“Yeah see what you want to see” Sorry SRedmond, Floyd did in fact blatantly run one time in his fight with Guerrero because that’s what started the crowd booing him. But really, that was one little incident. Floyd dominated Guerrero just as most of us suspected he would. That’s why his running was all the more annoying.Posted June 11, 2013 4:49 pm
“Pacquiao was knocked out by a 39 year old version of a fighter that Floyd Mayweather beat 12-0 it hurts PAC Mans case for EVER being truly on Floyds level…” No, it doesn’t hurt PAC Mans case forever. Marquez had four opportunities over a number of years to figure out how to beat Manny Pacquiao. He has fought Floyd only once. And, Marquez’s KO of Manny came after Manny was already showing decline, and three years after Mayweather humiliated him. But Marquez won’t want anymore bouts against Floyd–not because Floyd is so much better than him, but because he’ll be subject to random PED testing. Otherwise, why wouldn’t Marquez want to attempt redeem himself against Floyd? What’s he got to lose? Nothing. Not a damn thing. After all, he fought Pacquiao four times in order to do just that.
As as for your harping about this “39 year old version…” crap, give it a rest, SRedmond. Marquez did something to Manny Pacquaio that left even Floyd Mayweather Jr. in amazement. And you know damn well Floyd would never be able to do that to Pac. Never! At least not before Marquez did it.Posted June 11, 2013 4:46 pm
Floyd Mayweather always has the advantage because he runs, runs and runs. Let’s face it. He has tasted a bit of fighting when he thought he could out fight Cotto on the inside and ended up receiving, bumps, bruises and a bloodied nose. He looked like a 5 year old crying. I even felt bad for him. And Guerrero would have beaten him easily had Mayweather decided to actually fight, which all smart boxing fans know he never will. This is the FIGHT game. Two guys get in shape, pick a date to fight, and then they fight with honor, courage, heart and a winner is decided one way or another. If we are going to level the playing field because guys like Mayeather are too busy running, let’s make the boxing rings smaller. I’m sure if Floyd is as good as many of you think, he would have no problem right? Wrong, which is why I am adamant about Floyd being a good boxer and great athlete. A great fighter would have no problem fighting inside a 16 foot ring, and the fans would love it. The idea would be great for the sport. After all they do get millions for fighting right? Floyd Mayweather should take notice of Adrien broner, the supposed duplicate of himself. Only one difference, Adrien fights, stays in the pocket and wins. Now that’s a great boxer puncher that fans love to watch. IMO, he is much better than Floyd Mayweather was in his prime or even now. Floyd wants no part of broner, and we all know it. You see, Broner is quiet similiar to Floyd, and he’s one of my favorite fighters today. Why? Because he comes to fight, has better defense than Floyd, hits harder than Floyd is fster than Floyd and fans love to see him FIGHT, something Floyd doesn’t know how to do.Posted June 11, 2013 3:41 pm
Maybe his body changed because Angel Hernandez gave him something better than his own urinePosted June 11, 2013 11:39 am
Yeah see what you want to see, Guerrero was not getting punched in the face repeatedly because Floyd Mayweather was “running” the dream of every Mayweather hater is that he will abandon his legendary skills and fall to the lowest common denominator and slug so that a lessor fighter has a snow balls chance in hell of beating him… He’s 36 and STILL 5 steps ahead of the game..Posted June 11, 2013 11:35 am
Ha ha who has canelo fought besides Austin Trout?Posted June 11, 2013 11:33 am
Pacquiao was knocked out by a 39 year old version of a fighter that Floyd Mayweather beat 12-0 it hurts PAC Mans case for EVER being truly on Floyds level…A faded Marco Antonio Barrera did better with Marquez than PAC Man did last fight out… I would have liked to have seen the bout but as of today Pacquiaos relevance at the top hangs on his fortunes with Brandon Rios while Mayweather is taking on a younger, bigger fighter who is seen by a lot of people as the bigger threat… Riis would get boxed senseless against Mayweather it would be a joke!!!’ Hecdog is a religious phony who was SURE that Guerrero was gonna beat Floyd but after he was made EASY work of he gives Mayweather NO credit when HE was the guy saying Floyd’s in danger… That’s NOT a real boxing fan…Posted June 11, 2013 11:28 am
as for dawson i was happy to see this dude getting KO! he showed no respect whatsoever before the fight to Adonis… and no respect in the ring… “who are you i had to google you..i had to go on youtube to see who you are” – well now chad every time you will type adonis on google or yourtube… you will find your ass mentioned next to his name loool… KOOOOO in 76 sec,Posted June 11, 2013 10:59 am

Get a grip get off pac balls.. the guys is good but not great… “the legend” please… floyd is faighting canelo next the same guys everybody was saying he was too scared to fight//”OPHH floyd will never fight a young fighter like canelo” ..now that hes doing it you have to run your mouths again,,,, you know what boxing is you bum??? hit and NOT get hit lol dammm losers… pactards retards… close your eyes and picture Pac face down for 4 mins… if anaything marquez is a legend..Posted June 11, 2013 10:54 am
You can keep saying that but for such a boring fighter he sure does sell a lot of PPVs. More than Manny as a matter of fact. Why is he fighting in China? Cause he doesn’t sell like he used to. That’s shown in his PPV sells. A dramatic drop off. His last fight against Marquez was full of Marquez fans. Only if Pac would if agreed to the test you could of seen Floyd toy with himPosted June 11, 2013 10:53 am
Floyd Mayweather will always be second to the legend Manny Pacquiao. He ducked, dodged and ran away from Manny when the opportunity was there to fight him. SREDMOND, you must go back in history and understand what the sport of boxing was all about. Two men fighting within the rules, and no running was involved. Why do you think fans boo and walk out on Floyd Mayweather. They pay to see a fight as was intended when the sport of boxing was invented. You have a guy making millions and he’s going to hit, hold, hug and run? Really, how about having the courage, mental toughness and confidence to fight and not run. It’s funny to me watching Mayweather sign a fight and telling fans that he’s giving fans what they want. Hmm….Fans want a fight from you Floyd, not a cat and mouse game. I understand Floyd was fearful of the wrecking machine that he saw in Manny Pacquiao, but show some courage to fight the only 8 division boxing champion in the history of boxing, which actually makes him not only the boxer of the decade, but the greatest boxer of all time. You see, people love to see Manny’s fights because he doesn’t cheat people out of their money or make excuses why he won’t fight anyone. Manny Pacquiao continues to take shots from haters, yet he handles himself with class, honor and respect and goes about his business. He does nothing but good things. I’m sure most of you have followed Manny’s congressional law he helped pass that targets those human traffickers that take advantage and destroy the lives of women, children and others. Yes, he is doing good things for people. He is not only the greatest boxer of all time, but he’s gaining a lot of steam as the greatest congressman in the history of politics. Manny Pacquiao deserves respect from everyone. He gives, helps, assists and takes care of people in need. No other boxer or athlete has done as much to help people than Manny Pacquiao.Posted June 11, 2013 10:19 am
Arguing with Hecdog is feeding his cry for attention we all know Maywether stood with his hands down daring the slower Guerrero to open up so he could get pounded and bleed like he did… Hecdog is a religious not case as evidenced by his constant “evil this, evil that” meanwhile all the guys he deems as Saints “Guerrero and Pacquiao” are losing BADLY…. He was all over Rigondeax who bested Donaire in a stinker of a fight where he was BOOED from early about the lack of action… Why the contrast on Rigondeaux and Mayweather who are both technical? Hecdog will make a case that Rigo getting dropped after being in a clinch makes him an all action fighter, when the truth is he HATES the Brash, Flashy and Flawless Mayweather who has climbed over Pacquiaos almost dead body and sits atop the boxing world… Floyd is still pristine while Pacquiao is one loss away from damaging his legacy should he succumb to a crude banger like Rios who is also coming off a loss…Posted June 11, 2013 9:28 am
IF Robert wanted a WW Championship he should’ve beaten Broner to Malignaggi but now its TOO LATE. He can’t beat Floyd or Broner SO his best bet is to drop back down to 140 or 135 IF he wants to be CHAMP.Posted June 11, 2013 3:59 am
Hecdog-Your lack of knowledge and understanding about the essence of what GREAT Boxing IS is what makes your opinion very POOR…..Boxing executed at its most perfect form is to hit and not get hit. NO man is perfect but Floyd is the closest TO it in the ENTIRE History of Boxing. . Not Pacquiao, not Hagler, not Duran, not Robinson, not Leonard, and not Chavez can match him. Compubox records say that I am CORRECT on that……..Floyd was 20 feet away from Guerrero because that’s what a high Boxing IQ can DO for you. Berto needs to take notes… Floyd knew Robert was slower than a FAT boy in QUICK sand SO he used it to his advantage… You can’t HIT what you can’t CATCH. Floyd caught Guerrero ALOT. Landing 60% of your power shots is damn near record breaking. That’s what the most accurate Puncher in the History of Boxing can DO to you.Posted June 11, 2013 3:53 am
Floyd is a murky little turd, but if you think he is anything other than a great boxer, well, then I`d congratulate you on teaching your guide dog to type.Posted June 11, 2013 3:22 am
CORRECTAMUNDO, sometimes the evil that runs rampid throughout the world, especially the boxing world sometimes wins. I didn’t take into account that Floyd would RUN from a guy that was jumping up two divisions to fight him. And as we all witnessed, Floyd did what a safety first scared fighter does. It’s basically called the fight or flight reaction. Hit once or twice, hug and hold and then run for your life. Did you see how far away Floyd was from Guerrero once he ran from the punch? He was 20 feet away, and that’s what adrenaline does when you panic and are scared. Having watched Mayweather a few times, I will give him credit for being a tremendous athlete, but not a true great boxers like Pacquiao, Duran, Hagler, Robinson Leonard and Chavez. By the way, Robert Guerrero will be back and win another championship. I guarantee that.Posted June 11, 2013 3:13 am
Excellent Analysis Vivek!! Good Post Te Tumbo, Now my question how in the name of the Avengers did Zab get a second fight with Garcia?Posted June 11, 2013 3:08 am
The question of whether Dawson can take a punch has been answered.
I don`t know if anyone is going to want to watch Dawson fighting even MORE defensively in future to protect that chin.Posted June 11, 2013 3:02 am
the timing is ominous but i maintain that you can’t read a lot from these 1st-round KOs. it’s not as if it didn’t happen. the damage Is done but unless Stevenson does that in every fight we still don’t know how he will perform v. a another elite opponent inCLUDing Dawson, to some degree but i’m not gonna waste any keystrokes speculating “what-ifs” over Dawson’s loss. it was an impressive win for Stevenson, Period, but questions about Stevenson and Dawson remain unanswered.Posted June 11, 2013 1:34 am
Squared Circle-Nope. GOOD guess though. I get them right ALOT which gives guys alot of built UP frustration. SO guys have to let me have it at full force every time I get one wrong because there’s no telling how long it will be before they have another opportunity to let loose. Thats called GREATNESS. No amount of clowning can make any difference.Posted June 11, 2013 1:28 am
One with with Chad though – he never really lived up to the nickname “Bad”.
I saw him beat plenty of people, but never really saw him dish out a bad beating.
When another fighter called Chad out, noone was thinking “whoah dude you are brave Chad is going to break every bone in your face”.
There is a difference between being able to win more rounds than someone and being able to break them, and fans (me included) take a peverse pleasure in seeing people broken.
It doesn`t necessarily even need to be physically broken and KO’ed, seeing someone mentally broken can slake the same thirst.
I will say Dawson did beat Adamek. I would of considered him elite at light heavy. And if not elite, much better than Pascal. Dawson is not the fighter he was when Floyd Sr was training him.Posted June 10, 2013 11:56 pm
Light Heavyweight was a good division when Archie Moore, Harold Johnson, Jose Torres, Bob Foster, and Michael Spinks were the champions… After Roy Jones was knocked stiff the division hasn’t been the same since… I want to see Nathan Cleverly and Adonis Stevenson fight… Actually I’d like to see Cleverly vs Pascal, Hopkins, Froch, or Dawson. Let’s get this kid a big fight.Posted June 10, 2013 11:54 pm
Dawson did beat Adamek to take his “0”, and when he fought the seniors tour, they were the guys rated at the top of the division.
I don`t think it looks so bad having Adamek, Tarver, JOhnson and Hopkins scalps on your resume.
In terms of overrated Americans around that weight who have since been obliterated, I rate him ahead of Jermain Taylor or Kelly Pavlik.
People forget that the Pascal fight was stopped early due to a headbutt (I think) injury too, at a time when Dawson was actually fighting back pretty well.
I hope he retires, but I wish him well, because his skills have etched out a number of very decent results that get forgotten because every loves a KO.
Stevenson is an interesting addition to the LHW scene, which is good, because it might be the weakest division above the lightweights given how easily non elite SMW’s (like Stevenson and Pascal) have gone up there to take over in their first fight.Posted June 10, 2013 11:32 pm
the one win of dawson’s not mentioned, his best win, was prior to 08 in 2007 when he took adamek’s ‘0’! I think dawson problem is mental but also very much temperamental. the only fighter I can recall that has success swapping trainers so much was Oscar and i’m not convinced he wouldn’t have had more success if he had just picked and trainer and stuck with him.
Comparing apple and oargnges is pretty pointless. SRR and FMjr, fought in total different era’s. Both made their marks in their respective era, I try to leave it at that. But if things were the same now as they were then, all fighters would have many more fights than they do now. Today’s fighters could get away with fighting lots of tune up and the same guy 6 times. It’s total different era now. I’m not saying it’s better or worse, just too different to compair and get an accurate result.Posted June 10, 2013 9:02 pm

I meant to say B F D about Floyd’s record.Posted June 10, 2013 8:51 pm
“Robinson never lost to a man twice until he was 41 yrs old. Had a helluva chin as he was never knocked out. Thats still LESSER than Floyd though as he has never even LOST to a man ONCE and he’s already 36 yrs old.”
Tell us again how many fights Floyd has had by age 36. 44? Then tell us how many Ray had by the age of 36–something like 147? The less you fight, the less chance you have of getting beaten. Or knocked out. By the time he was 36 Robinson had fought nearly 3 1/2 times as many opponents as Floyd has at the same age. No comparison. Additionally, by 1946, Robinson had fought 75 fights to a 73–1–1 record and beaten every top contender in the welterweight division. In 1946 Ray was a whopping 25 years old. At the age of 25 Robinson had already fought 31 more fights than Floyd has in his entire professional career. B F D.Posted June 10, 2013 8:50 pm

If Lara could add short quick inside punches to his game he would be even better. Obviously he should never stand and trade, but he would Benefit by strengthening his inside the pocket skills. Cause right now that’s his main weakness besides falling back with his hands down every now and then.Posted June 10, 2013 7:38 pm
Enough talk about Sugar Ray Robinson and Floyd Mayweather. Robinson is 10 levels above Mayweather. He would have beaten him in every facet of boxing. Sugar Ray Robinson was way ahead of his time and would have dealt with any fighter in any era, especially a guy like Mayweather. Please don’t ever mention Mayweather’s name in the same breathe as Robinson. Sugar Ray Robinson is the second greatest fighter in boxing history next to Manny Pacquiao.Posted June 10, 2013 7:04 pm
Robinson’s wife left him as she says she couldn’t take anymore beatings. Anytime she said anything about his philandering he’d beat her. Their son says he’ll never forget watching his Dad hit his Mom with a 2 punch combination. Looks like Floyd, Ali, and Ray Robinson are in the same boat.Posted June 10, 2013 6:47 pm

Sugar Ray Robinson was a lot easier to hit than Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Ralph Jones said…, “I had been losing a lot of fights, that’s the only reason Robinson fought me. He thought I was the same kind of punching bag he usually fights. I hit him with everything every round. I’m just too strong and too fast for him. I’ll beat Ray up again, any time he gets ready … but I know damned well that’s the last I’ll see of him.”Posted June 10, 2013 6:19 pm
Watching a documentary on Ray Robinson and he was MUCH like Floyd. They SAID that he wouldn’t take Fights IF he didn’t get the most money, he beat women, had a huge ego and he became more popular after he lost than he was BEFORE he lost….Like I always SAY. People hate WINNERS. That’s why I have alot of HATERS.Posted June 10, 2013 5:55 pm
Lara’s stock went UP after the Williams Fight and Williams stock went DOWN. He showed NO improvement vs. the left hand and his career was on a downward spiral despite the POOR decision.Posted June 10, 2013 5:52 pm
“Against Paul Williams, I wasn’t upset – like many[?!?] – for the decision going to Williams. It was a classic case where a fighter knew coming in that he was not the house fighter[?!?]. And rather than doing enough to seal the victory, he instead did enough to make it interesting, but not enough to remove all doubt”. WTF?!? Williams was outPunched at his own punching game. also, spare us the unwritten code regarding “house fighters”. although, i guess it’s why “Vito” didn’t express being upset when Lara stole a decision from Molina. because Lara was ESPN’s “house fighter”? (pft?!). bottomline, Angulo looked TERRIBLE and was STILL winning the bout at the point of stoppage. neither Lara or Angulo pose any threat to Canelo, which makes the long-avoided rematches v. the likes of Molina or Martirosyan preferable to any more prominent matchup for Lara who continues to be as overrated as Williams but for different reasons. meanwhile, Dawson got caught cold and there’s no reason to over-analyze that loss. beyond recognizing Stevenson’s KO punching-power. what impressed me most about Maidana’s win wasn’t his established notoriety for plucking defeat from the claws of a loss but rather his improved placement of punches and handspeed. his punching was quick, strong, and accurate. i wasn’t surprised by Maidana’s resilience but i was pretty amazed at how quick he was launching those powerpunches. those quick and powerful counters completely derailed Lopez’s timing of Maidana that was allowing him to Sting and Ding him with regularity but not without a cost. Maidana wins in a losing effort again.Posted June 10, 2013 5:43 pm

Vivek picked Dawson to win. Saying things like, “Scanning over my catalog of notes over the years” sounds like he arrived at his pick through thoughtful analysis. You would have to scan over somebody else’s notes to get there.
Vivek writes of Lara’s loss to Williams, “Had Lara seized the many opportunities he had in that fight, there’s no way he doesn’t have his hand raised in the final analysis. None!” … Lara took his many opportunities to bash Williams with hard shots.. He literally beat the crap out of Williams. Lara didn’t win because the judges wanted Williams to win.
