Floyd Xylocaine Mayweather

Everyone knows Mayweather was robbed by the officials in the 1996 Olympics.

@Ape-man naat, there really is no word for your stupidity. But I can see a bit of a learning process though as you now continue using words and arguments I have used before! Not bad for an imbecile! So keep it up and maybe one day you will reach a level that raises you from piece of crap to a**hole!

Floyd Xylocaine Mayweather (you are an idiot a real moron)

Floyd very well knows that he got a Bronze Medal at 1996 Summer Olympics and yet he calls himself undefeated.

Olympics does not allow Xylocaine usage.

Two things butt muncher. Everyone knows Mayweather was robbed by the officials in the 1996 Olympics. Check any site and it will be confirmed.

What does an amateur record have to do with a pro record?

You could have 30 losses as an amateur and then rack up an undefeated record of 50-0. It still means you are unbeaten as a pro.

An amateur fighter could be boxing from the age of 8 or 9 years old. I could bet my house, my mortgage and everything I own that you have had your head kicked in plenty of times before you reached adulthood and come to that plenty of times more since you became an adult (your postings over the last few months however suggest you are extremely juvenile, but I will give you the benefit of the doubt here).

Mayweather to my knowledge has never said he has never lost amateur of pro. Never. The two codes are extremely different.

I wonder if Mayweather if he was hispanic;latin american;asian british or white there would be countries or espn days for him like Lance Armstrong knowing he was cheating but I regress. U SEE i support rooting for ur own but other ethnic groups have to understand global greatness in a open world competition have to be done against the best. I know most people have a problem with in a open world sport that the greatest boxer who ever live are and have been african americans. But this great fighter is even more dangerous to hatemongers because he smart. Mayweather has burn novice writers like Reni soul because he meaning Mayweather is rewriting the standard of greatness. A strong black man who is aquiring wealth and surrounding himself around african american management. But get this he is the Ceo. To be this great and smart whoa!!!!! Now he dangerous burn the blue print there is no one like him. You can’t get make Pac think like Mayweather so stop. Accept this once in a life time fighter for what he is TBE. Who would u model your son after. Case close. Just like debating who is the fighter of the year. Always most wins less losses most money. Mr.Reni how to u seethe world?

Fight Aficionado please learn about boxing. First of all Mayweather weighs round about 146lbs. Fought the real champ at 154lbs. Canelo can balloon up to LHW on fight-nite. Please tell me who are the fighters Kovalev and GGG beat and please tell me their rankings at those time. Adonis and Garcia to me did much better than both of your friends. Can you imagine GGG jumping to 168lbs and fighting Ward for his belt? Mayweather is behind Stevenson and Garcia. Didn’t Adonis KO everybody that he fought. Since KO’s to you are barometer of how good a boxer is, instead of their competition.

Salido, Lopez, and Martinez? i’d say that Garcia has the strongest argument for FOY compared to the other alternatives mentioned.

Posted January 6, 2014 2:46 am 


Fight Aficionado

I’d say GGG or Kovalev are the fighterss of the year. Both had breakout years and emerged as major title holders. Both KTFO everyone who stepped in with them. Both are now being ducked in earnest by the other belt holders at 160 and 175. Floyd had a good year but did he KO anyone? He was more than a 3/1 favorite in both his fights so he basically did what he was supposed to do.

The reason Floyd never submitted to fight a boxer who was talanted but had a small fan base is because floyd himself has a very small fanbase and the ppv number would be next to none.
Hence he will submit to fight khan.

Oh, Floyd can fight whoever he wants, he’s just acting like Bully and expects others to do as he says. The best way to beat a bully is by not giving in to their demands, otherwise, you set a precedent which other fighters and promoters will follow. That’s a behavior that needs to nipped in butt and put an end to. Floyd does not, cannot and should not be allowed to control how boxing works. Just because “lil” Floyd has an issue with Arum, Pac SHOULD leave him?? That’s neither reasonable nor rational considering Floyd is an adult man, I assume. As a fan, I’d love to seem them mix it up but if it doesn’t get made because Floyd expects Pac to do as he says, Pac should just move on. Floyd will then feel the wrath of boxing fans afterwards when he see’s his PPV numbers plummet like temperature in winter.

Problem is Floyd is with Golden boy and guys like Bradley, Manny are wth Top rank and no one can work with Arum. Manny or Bradley can never fight Floyd. Arum keeps all his dogs on a short leash. Oscar, Floyd, Cotto and a host of others left top rank for this reason. Floyd can fight Kahn, Garica, Maidana, Miadana, Thurman is not big enough yet. I think Garcia will be in his near future, They are building him up. But forget about Manny or Bradley the sides dont get along. Arum wants a lions share, and all his fighters are broke.

Khan is but waste of time as an opponent for Floyd and Floyd knows that, he just wants fans to think Khan is the only fighter available that would pose a risk to his reign and be a better opponent than say, Pac, Bradley, Thurman, Brooks and Porter among others. His reasoning? Simple! Easy fight. Floyd cares about Floyd, never mind the fans who pay his purses, they don’t matter. Khan never fought at the WW division and has no title so, what exactly does khan bring to the table that Pac, Bradley Thurman and others don’t? Four letters answer that question, its called no R-I-S-K. Floyd fighting khan would be the equivalent of Roy Jones jr. fighting Willy Foo Foo or Johnny Salami. It’s more an exhibition than a professional affair.

Floyd is like the school yard bully bossing everyone around, wanting everyone to bend over backwards for him so, he continues his odd behavior by insisting Arum not be Pacs promoter.

I agree he should avenge Bradley as he done it easily the first time landed more than 90 punches the whole fight, Marquez he already beat anyway and if he fought him you would just say he beat an old Marquez so that’s not a fight that’s worth anything

Floyd Mayweather fighter of the Year? After fighting only twice, and one of those fights was with a scrub by the name of Guerrero, and the other a catchweight fight which wasn’t spectacular, Floyd is far from being fighter of the year. Stevenson or Kovalev should get that for both for their efforts and quality of opponents. Personally, I would give it to Ruslan Provodnikov for the two wars, one of which, many if not most felt he won, but Floyd? GTFOH. To Floyd: What have you done lately?

Auz box the Facts are Manny turned down 40 million to fight Floyd over a simple blood test, if dude wasnt hiding anything why didnt he take the test? Secondly he goes on to face Marquez for only 3 million just to get KTFO. I am curious though if Manny is so great as you say then why hasnt he avenged his losses riddle me that?

LMAO! You detractors are pathetic. Now suddenly Lara was the real threat at 154 and Floyd ducked him to fight Canelo??? Are you serious? Nobody knew about Lara until he was broadcast a couple of times on premium cable channels. Canelo was the number one, undisputed, undefeated Jr. Middleweight that everyone was saying had the talent and skill set to beat Floyd Mayweather Jr. And Floyd made him one of his easiest wins. This is why real boxing fans don’t take you people seriously. The stuff you’ll say not to give Floyd credit for anything is borderline psychotic.

No bias he has agreed to 60/40 now and all the testing, it’s worth the most money and will break ppv records. He is MONEY may isn’t he, and as I said claims to be the biggest name in boxing yet can’t get over the arum thing just all a bit silly is all

Posted January 4, 2014 7:13 pm 


The Greatest

Here are the facts: prior to Manny getting put to sleep, mayweather wanted 60/40 with random blood testing, Manny wanted 50/50 without. Manny said he’d accept 45/55 in mayweathers favour with testing AFTER the fight. Never did Manny accept RANDOM blood testing, with one laughable reason being a ‘fear of needles’ whilst sporting tattoos and another being that taking a miniscule amount of blood (which Floyd would also have to do) would ‘weaken him’. Manny, for whatever reason, was against RANDOM blood testing, which is the only form of testing that is actually effective. Only since Manny has become desperate after being brutally knocked unconscious in barbaric fashion by a 40 year old Marquez has Manny stated he will do RANDOM testing. I remember another excuse from Arum being that they ‘didn’t have enough time to build a new stadium’ before one particular fight.

Arum is a complete slime ball and refusing to give him a big pay cheque is justifiable IMO. Since Marquez, Manny has only fought a one dimensional junior welter coming off a loss so I don’t really think the fight could sell as well as it could before Manny avenges Bradley, marquez’ conqueror.

You guys put the blame solely on Floyd but take your jealousy and bias out of the equation and look at the facts. Manny/arum are as much to blame if not more so than Floyd and only since Manny has become shopworn has he shown a genuine interest in cashing out.

On June 7, 1996, Chávez faced Oscar De La Hoya.

A large gash appeared over the right eye of Chávez within the first minute of the first round, leading many to assume what Chávez later confirmed—that the cut occurred earlier in training and was re-opened in the bout. Heavy blood flow prompted the doctor to stop the fight in the fourth round. Until their eventual rematch in 1998, Chávez would always state that De La Hoya had not defeated him, but that a gash that he had suffered in training was the real cause of the stoppage of the fight. In his next bout, Chávez defeated former champion Joey Gamache in his 100th career bout.

In a rematch with De La Hoya for the WBC Welterweight belt in September 1998, De La Hoya won by 8th round TKO.

About De La Hoya, Chávez recently stated: “I have nothing against him, even though he beat me twice. I have no resentment towards him… De la Hoya was younger than me during our fight, and I was on my way out of boxing. If Oscar didn’t fight me, he would not have been anything in boxing.”

Chavez spoke about his sparring session with De La Hoya six years before their first fight and stated: “I sparred with him and dropped him in the second round with a right hand. De la Hoya was a kid… that day after training he stayed and we went out to dinner, I gave him some $300-$400 from my pocket to help him out.”

What to worship a fighter then at least choose a right one.

“And btw, recently Mayweather has stated that he won’t fight Pacquiao until he leaves Arum. Weird. Pac was with Arum when Mayweather first brought up random testing, but he made no mention of not wanting to work with Bob Arum.”-And Arum messed that UP by running away from the bargaining table over drug testing. Now he gets no more opportunities to work with Floyd. He BLEW it.

Forget how Canelo is viewed now, at the time the bout was made, he was viewed as the most dangerous fighter at light middleweight. If Floyd had beaten Lara, he would now be described as ‘unproven and exposed’. If Floyd had fought trout, Floyd would now be getting ridiculed for ducking canelo and fighting his ‘leftovers’. Floyd will be accused of cheer picking no matter what he does and only guy i’d give a chance of beating him is GGG at 160, which is unreasonable seeing as Floyd could make 140. Similarly what would he get from beating GGG? People would be here in 12 months saying GGG was ‘unproven’ and ‘one dimensional’ and if Floyd fought him below 160, the old ‘weight drained’ card would be played. Floyd and his team know there will always be haters, hence why they take no notice and make a ton of money from these ‘haters’ who still buy the fights.

We can all agree on this. This author will NEVER win Writer of the Year or any year. Actually, I doubt he is any recognized writer of any sort. This author lacks literary skills, insight, perspective, talent, forethought, afterthought, any thought. This author is the worst sort of pond scum there is, throwing out barbs like Christmas presents making sure he is safely behind his kb and out of reach of where his lack of skills can be scrutinized and assessed as its clear he knows this piece of garbage will score an F for FAIL. take this rubbish piece of filth and flush it down the pan and start again. If anyone can help, please can we raise funds to supply this author with a fountain pen, a pencil, some paper, a thesaurus and an entry form for the IDIOT’S COURSE GUIDE FOR Wannabe Sports scribes.

The Greatest, I get what you’re saying but and there is a huge BUT, Floyd carefully picks his opponents. To call it cherry-picking or not is not really important. He’s had a few tough fights, especially early on in his career. I would say Canelo was a tough opponent. Still forcing Canelo down to 152 was only to slow him down and make him lose stamina. Fighting a guy with very little amateur experience, 22 years old with one solid win at the weight is picking the easier fight. Floyd would never fight GGG at LMW. He avoided Pac like the plague when that fight made all the sense in the world. He fought Judah after Judah got kayoed against Baldomir… I could go on and on.

Floyd is the best business guy in boxing of all times. TBE. As a fighter he’s just great.

“Mayweather offered Pacquiao 50% in the first negotiations back in 2009 just as long as pacroids and him take a random test.Pacroids turned it down so after that Floyd said he`s not offering Pacroids 50% anymore.”

So? Why should Pacquiao submit to special testing just for Floyd Mayweather Jr.? Floyd and his daddy claimed Floyd could beat Manny even if he was on PEDs. So why didn’t they scrap the random testing demand and make the fight?

And btw, recently Mayweather has stated that he won’t fight Pacquiao until he leaves Arum. Weird. Pac was with Arum when Mayweather first brought up random testing, but he made no mention of not wanting to work with Bob Arum.

Excuses, excuses….

“This article is utter garbage. How can Canelo Alvarez, the unified 154lb champion, be classed as ‘cherry picking’?! Who else would have been more worthy?”

Erislandy Lara, possibly, but he never got the chance to compete for a title before the Mayweather/Alvarez bout was made. Or, Austin Trout. Certainly Alvarez was not cherry-picked but it’s debatable how worthy of an opponent Alvarez was.

Alvarez won a vacant jr. middleweight title in a fight with fringe contender (and easy mark and much smaller) Matthew Hatton. He then defended his WBC title several times against not so hot competition who were generallyl much smaller than him, which included old, worn out Shane Mosley. Alvarez then narrowly beat Austin Trout by controversial decision after Trout had beaten Cotto by the same margin that Mayweather had. Alvarez had never faced anyone of Cotto’s caliber prior to fighting Trout, and had Alvarez not been Golden Boy’s golden child, he might not have got the win or the fight with Mayweather. You can bet that being a Golden Boy fighter had a lot to do with Alvarez’s destiny.

Hopefully, we’ll get to see an Alvarez/Lara bout in the near future. My guess is that Lara will dominate him.

Captain Kirk’s Nipples

Mayweather is paying off his opponents; he paid of both Guerrero and Canelo, and it’s easy. His pays them big $$$ and they take a “dive”, in return they have a loss to Mayweather on their record, no big deal. The fights of Mayweather are all hype, not real, it’s all a lie.
The problem with the Pac fight is that he won’t agree and take a “dive”. Therefore the fight will not happen. As mentioned before, Floyd is a crook, part of the mob and it’s all a huge hype that people unfortunately buy into…
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not only Floyd who is involved into the dirty business of boxing, many are, but he has been made the cash cow, and his career is fake. Let’s tell the truth…

Interesting, and as for prov I hope when they make the fight or with Bradley you eat your words no matter how the fight goes down, manny wins you say you were wrong? And as for floyd not being challenged, cotto challenged him after PAC destroyed and stopped him

Posted January 4, 2014 7:02 am 


Losing patience!

For beating slow, counterpunching, overrated, Canelo who has a low work rate, wears leaded shoes, struggled against Trout and tailor- made for the Fraud. Once he saw the Trout/Canelo boxing contest he new it was safe to face Canelo, who looked GR8 by the way against Mathew Hatton. The best cherry picker of all time. Give that award to him.

Poor Manny no matter who much these pactards call Floyd scared no Matter who Manny fights the image of him being put to sleep and looking like he was dead will be forever be burned in the minds of the public who buys these fights, So until he avenges his losses no one cares to watch this dude. Manny needs big wins over Bradley, Ruslan or Marquez, But due to there history and the Fact Marquez was cheated a few times he will never fight Manny again, so his options are slim. He has made countless mistakes in his career and signing with Arum was the biggest, Look for Arum to try and Match Manny with the biggest names outside of Floyd and Golden boy, That way he is thinking he can somehow work leverage to force Floyd to the table he hasnt happened since 09 and it wont happen now, They are talking about Manny fighting Mikey Garica you see now Arum is trying to bring guys from lightweight to fight, dude is a snake he knows Mannys skills are gone, There are plenty of guys at welter to fight Pac but he looking at lightweight? All his options are gone and he knows Bradley or Ruslan will beat Mannys ass.

Posted January 4, 2014 6:55 am 


Get over it

Assbox none of your points are valid. Floyd hasnt lost not only that all his fights he convincingly won without a doubt none in the last 5 years even been close. Manny despite not KOing anyone since 09 has losses to boot and he hasnt avenged anyone of them. Again your boy is irrelivant I dont see why ESB bothers posting these garbage articles Manny is done, and he is exposed he cannot beat anyone who moves nor at his weight, Only guys coming down and dehydrated fighters, plus he has no power. You mean to tell me Rios was tough? He was a joke and moved up from light welter and still Manny could KO him what happened? Floyd beat Canelo the same guy Cotto and everyone else to this day is running from he is a beast and he got his ass beat enough said. I bet Manny wont fight Canelo

I guess you think Marquez got lucky but he knocked him down twice. Nothing in the past five years looks good for Manny If Manny had a better promoter excuses are like A holes we all got one. And if an If was a bottle of wine we would all be drunk. No one is felling Manny these days and his fights suck that why he is broke because he makes no ppv sales. I bet he wished he took the fight in 09 when Floyd offered it. Manny is a broke joke, and Bradley will beat his ass and the sad thing is no one will pay to watch it. While Floyd fights sell out vegas.

I though Rios just came off a lost before Manny fought him? Fight some real fighters and stop crying about Floyd, Black man is king deal with it, he is running boxing he makes more money and his fights are huge. Manny catch up if you can. Garcia had impressive wins no doutb. But we cannot say the same for Pac. Tax liens or not he will get his ass beat again this year for sure and I guess Floyd still will be ducking him. How can Floyd duck Manny when Canelo was one of the most dangerous guys in boxing dude was undefeated Floyd beat undefeated fighter how is that ducking.

Consistency on what exactly? Mayweather fought twice in 2013. Guerrero and Canelo. One a light weight and another a young inexperienced, weight drained fighter. Danny Garcia fought twice also (Judah and Mathhysse). Sergey Kovalev and Adonis Stevenson both fought 4 times and looked more impressive in each fight. All knockouts or stoppages. These two should win it.

I remember Calzaghe getting a SD against RR and then running in the other direction.

Froch and Calazaghe are a pair of mugs.

If its about floyd not deserving it, that’s about right. Any fighter that fought a guerro doesn’t deserve it that’s for sure

@ hecdog – damn dude manny cant win fighter of the year every year! Canelo weight drained? He weighed 170 fight night! Unless cotto, margacheato, and de la hoya! Now they were dead on fight night from weight draining and rehydration clauses when pac fought them!

Yes, if you count 2012, then Froch would the winner, IMO. I think he’s had a good run since his loss to Ward. I just doubt he’ll be in the running for fighter of the year, but he might be.

I got Mayweather picked as the winner. If not, then I don’t mind D. Garcia or Stevenson getting it. Froch? Heck, no.

TC.. He Froch had a massive year the year previous as well. That’s kinda all been tarnished by a ref jumping in 2 quick. Crazy as at the point of the stoppage he was all over George. Because of these circumstances is all his good work to be ignored by people. he isn’t even in control of the timing of it. As I said earlier to HH there’s not many fighters on the planet could have came back from where Froch was so early in the Groves fight. It was as heavy a knockdown as your likely to see a guy get up from

Pac was in hiatus in 2013, due to his concussion. Mayweather’s year was better. Still there are other fighters that deserve the award. I congratulate who ever it may be… It’ll probably be Mayweather though.

Mikey got some good wins. He looked awesome against Salido until his nose got smashed in by a head butt. He was way too strong for Lopez, but he did come in heavy, so that could remove him from the discussion right there. But over all he had a great year.

Posted January 4, 2014 12:31 am 


Hec Dog

Floyd Mayweather did what exactly to even be in this conversation? He fought 2 times? Fought a Guerrero that had to chase him all over the ring. He even went up to weight classes and Mayweather couldn’t hurt him at all. And then he fought a Canelo that had to be weight drained? He’s been running for his life from the legendary Manny Pacquiao, and some of you think he’s deserving of being granted Fighter Of The Year? Boxing would devalue itself if Floyd Mayweather were to get the nod. True fighters that have character inside and outside the ring like GGG, Pacquiao, Garcia, Rigondeaux and Kovalev are so much more deserving. They fought 3-4 times during the year.

Ring Magazine used to have excellent criteria for nominees. They included: NOMINEES HAD TO BE AN EXAMPLE TO YOUTH.
THEY HAD TO HAVE GOOD PUBLIC RELATIONSHIPS AND A REPUTATION FOR CLEAN LIVING. THEY HAD TO HAVE A COMBINATION OF HIGH RANKING IN BOXING AND SIMILAR RANKING AS SPORTSMAN. Floyd Mayweather fails them all miserably.

TC, For me it’s Danny Garcia because everyone wrote him off over TWO YEAR, let alone one.

They said he got lucky with Khan back in 2012 and I can count on one hand who gave him a shot (I’m one, so that’s four) at Mathysse and he outclassed Mathysse.

No one else stands out or upset the odds as Danny did over two years, let alone one????????

GGG hasnt fought anyone worth talking about he needs to move up or down he will get his ass beat at 154, Alverez, Cotto, and at 168 you got Ward or Froch to name a few. GGG is another overhyped job. Didnt we learn anything from Broner?

Get over it

It boils down to skills, hec dog who cares about sponsors? Floyd made 300 million last year, He is not sout after? You delusional he is not only the highest paid boxer but the highest paid athelite in the world. I am not a hater or a lover of either fighter Manny nor Floyd but just stating facts and real numbers not hate and likes. Manny was a long way to go like it or Not, he has to fight Bradley or Ruslan and the both will test him thoroughly you need to see how he comes out of those before you can look at Floyd, Manny blew his shot in 09 that was no ones fault but his and Arum. Look at the facts Oscar, Richard Schaffer even 50 cent. They all said the same thing Arum is impossible to deal with so how is that Floyds fault ? He didnt make Manny sign with Arum. You say dont worry about Arum and just fight right? Well maybe you dont know what a contract is; Floyd has no control over making this fight Happen, They man with the gold rules why is it guys are lining up to fight Floyd and they all agree to the terms but Manny? And who is lining up to fight him.

I’m not sure who’s fighter of the year. It isn’t GGG, IMO cause he didn’t fight great competition… It’s not Manny he only fought and beat a fighter coming off of a loss…

Hec dog Manny beating Rios proves what? I guess you think rRios was good as Floyd, Rios wasnt even ranked, you are the biggest cry baby/hater/nuthugger pactard I ever seen. Face it this article is just reaffirming what the public already knows. Floyd is on top and your boy Manny took a dive in the toilet with his losses and right now he is rock bottom. And if Manny is all that you say he is then he shouldnt have a problem avenging his losses right? Better yet tell him to pay his taxes. Because right now his biggest fight is Uncle Sam. But you claim he is so so great but name a good fighter he beat in the last four years? He had his run with dehydrated Oscar, Cotto aand Margecheato, now the jury has spoken one would have to be retarded to think Manny is on the level as Floyd. Hec Dog I assure you 2014 two things will happen Floyd will make another 100 million. And still be undefeated easliy, and your boy Manny will loose again and still be in debt, You idiots act like Floyd owes Manny in what planet you live on where a champion has to prove anything. Manny is the one that needs to prove no only that he is back but deserves a shot and ditch that nothing of a Jew Arum, who is the biggest crook in the game but I tell you what tell Coot I got some kleenex for both you guys although I think you may need tampons bro…

I see Floyd retiring undefeated because I don’t SEE anybody beating him-Pac, Garcia, Broner, GGG, Martinez-he beats them all. Historians, scribes & fans will have to think about him being the GOAT because they won’t have any other choice…the only other fighter in the history of boxing that was close to that same possibility was Roy Jones when he beat Ruiz, but he didn’t retire right then & there; but I think Floyd will get to the finish line…he is THAT GOOD.

The Prince, Alverez was always getting beat by Floyd because he was green behind the ears.

Alverez was a live fight, as are all Floyds opponents but Garcia and their little team don’t get the respect they deserve.

I’m here to throw Danny Garcia’s name into the mix with the big guns .. ’cause the last two years … he’s done the business!

Wonder what he’ll look like with an extra 7lbs on him to be honest.

Posted January 3, 2014 11:09 pm 


The Prince

HHHLondon – Good point, that was a great win by Garcia. However, the Mayweather/Canelo fight had much bigger hype and a lot of so-called boxing experts had Canelo giving Floyd is first loss. So its justified that many of these same experts gave Floyd his credit with Fighter of the Year honors instead of backtracking and excuse making. Some of these detractors can learn a thing or two from them.

Posted January 3, 2014 11:00 pm 


HHHLondon

The Prince, I’m a big Floyd fan.

But, Garcia’s win over Mattysse was miles bigger.

Everyone wrote Danny off, expected him to get sparked inside 3 rounds and Danny outclassed him.

Alverez was always an overrated poster boy.

Floyd is a mismatch to Pacquiao. He needs to break Margarito’s eye bone first and make Dela Hoya surrender in mid round and KO Cotto and put to sleep Hatton in the second round before he fights Pacquiao.

Posted January 3, 2014 10:51 pm 


The Prince

Yes, Mayweather IS the fighter of 2013. I find it funny how the detractors now try to down play the fight with Canelo. All of them were saying that Floyd was afraid of Canelo; Canelo was the biggest threat in Mayweather’s career. That Floyd fighting and beating Canelo would finally secure his legacy. That was the story before the fight. Then Floyd Mayweather Jr. went into the ring and made Canelo one his easiest fights. Both Cotto and Guerrero scored some points on Mayweeather, but Canelo didn’t win one round. Mayweather proved once again that he is a level above the rest. And it’s disgusting how many of the detractors here on ESB promised they would finally give Floyd his credit if he fought and beat Canelo, only for them to go right back to their hating ways. I feel sorry for GGG and Pacquiao, because they don’t have any true fans, at least not on the internet boxing forums.
