Funny because Khan will hang up the gloves too, but much sooner, like immediately after he collects his Floyd lottery pay day. How charitable of Floyd to give Khan a retirement fund. Pac Man has no right to think Floyd does nothing for charity.Posted January 20, 2014 3:40 pm
Khan’s Cuz Achmed
Floyd looks at Amir Khan on Youtube and says “dam that boi is fast as a mo fo. dunt be knowin if I wants to fight him”. Then his dad speaks up in a commanding voice and says “shut up son and hands me dat crack pipe!” #KingAmir2014 #Mayweatherpoopshispants #PraiseJesusPosted January 20, 2014 9:55 am

Left Hook get a life you jackass. You’re the ponce around here. You know nothing about boxing to even suggest Cheato is a middleweight when he lost every fight he fought at 154, and to suggest he’s better than Canelo. You’re an idiot. I’m not a Canelo fan, but I know 2 losers when I see them: Cheato and Left Hook.Posted January 19, 2014 5:38 pm
So scared of losing again and taking a beating. Dont care what he does from now on unless PACS in the other corner. Hope he loses money against Khan. I wont be buyingPosted January 19, 2014 4:41 pm
BOTH PRIMA DONNAS. END OF.Posted January 19, 2014 3:19 pm
Manny Pacquiao’s offer to fight for charity has landed the final blow in the war of words between Floyd Mayweather and himself. A war that Floyd Mayweather started. Manny Pacquiao is truly an honorable man of GOD. Money, materials and fame mean nothing to him. This is a man of genuine true character. He understands that money, materials and fame mean absolutely nothing. One day we will all pass on and we cannot take anything with us. Manny Pacquiao is building a story that he will leave behind for others to follow. He knows boxing is only a small part of his life. He understands that there are people he doesn’t know and will never meet, but they look up to him. A child gazing at Manny and looking at how he handles himself. The world is watching him and they look to see how he handles, defeat, money, materials, criticism and the ups and downs of life. Manny Pacquiao, the biggest little man in the world is handling life inside and outside the ring with class. He has put Floyd Mayweather in a position to show his true character and motivation. And people are also looking at him. Yes, Floyd is also a role model to many, and so far he has failed in his true character as a boxer, but more importantly as a man. Floyd treasure his wordily possessions more than life. He boasts, brags, and let’s people know what he is all about. Floyd “MONEY” Mayweather is admittingly all about money, himself, his pride, his ego. This is a story of GOOD vs BAD. LOST vs FOUND, POOR vs RICH & HUMILITY vs EGO. I feel somewhat sorry for a man like Floyd Mayweather that is a lost man. He has his priorities misaligned. Manny Pacquiao started fighting as a 16 year old. He had nothing. He took a chance on becoming something. He succeeded. Manny never let go of his true values but only for a short time as he dazzled in the devil’s world, and found out he was headed the wrong way. He repented, and has been a model for others to follow. Not a perfect man by any stretch of the imagination, but a man that saw his faults and corrects them. As a fighting warrior, Manny exemplifies excellence, humility and sportsmanship. This from man that slept on the streets, sold donuts and bread to help his mother to make ends meet. The last few years, Manny Pacquiao has had personal and professional challenges to overcome. Many thought he would quit and go away. They questioned his character. They laughed and posted disrespectful pictures of Manny Pacquiao as his family had to endure it all. Still, his fans watched to see how Manny would handle himself. Manny kept his head up, trusted God and continues his quest for redemption with grace, peace and love on his shoulders. Manny Pacquiao will have left more than just fights videos to be remembered by. He will have left words or encouragement for those that have struggles in life. He will have left motivation and reassurance in their hearts. Manny Pacquiao is leaving an impact in not only boxing, but in this world for years to come. Floyd Mayweather should respond to Manny’s gesture and fight him or he should retire for good. Manny will always be a champion inside and outside the ring. Manny is the best.Posted January 19, 2014 2:35 pm

mayweather really earned respect fighting canelo. i believe its 4 more fights, maybe 5. hope it’s bradley, thurman, porter, lara, and a super fight with golovkin. if pac takes someone’s belt, it would make a fight desirable for the fans, maybe if mayweather wants to solidify the belts he won’t skip the pacman (pac still has his skills, i think disinterest was his weakness). and for a legendary finish…… golovkin at a catch weight.Posted January 19, 2014 12:33 am

“Pacquio would have won the 1st Maquez fight if one judge hadn’t made a simple math mistake in scoring the 1st round…”
I’m still waiting to hear from the WBA regarding whether the three-knockdowns-in-one-round-constitutes-a-KO rule was in effect at the time of their first fight. I’ve emailed the WBA twice but they have not responded–it’s been weeks. At least the WBC always responded when I emailed them.
Because if that rule was in effect then, there was more screw-ups than what the one judge admitted to. If the rule was in effect, Pac should have been credited with winning the fight by KO.Posted January 18, 2014 7:27 pm
Havoc.., “Floyd don’t have to fight the up and coming fighters”
Garcia and Lara aren’t up and coming fighters… They’re the best in their weight classes… Garcia smashed Khan and hammered Mathysse.. Lara dominated Trout with precision and power … Those would be dynamite fights with Floyd… anyway you look at them.
So far, Floyd has never had a dynamite fight… I’d like to see him in one.Posted January 18, 2014 6:37 pm
Floyd will retire without fighting Pac at 147, or GGG or Martinez at 154. Just like he didn’t fight any of the top guys at 147 when the division was packed with Williams, Clottey, Pac and Cotto in their primes. Those questions will be his legacy regardless of the money he’s got. He’ll be a 70 year old geezer still trying to justify why he ducked the best comp.Posted January 18, 2014 6:36 pm
Pacquio would have won the 1st Maquez fight if one judge hadn’t made a simple math mistake in scoring the 1st round… If that judge scored that round right Pacquiao would have won a SD… Usually the commissioners catch the miscalculations, because they check all the cards for irregularities… So it was weird they didn’t catch the error or change it later when it was discovered.
Now I had Marquez winning that fight by 3 points — although it looked hopeless for him after the 1st round, where he was down by 4 points.. I had Marquez up 1 point in the 2nd fight and winning by 3 points in the 3rd fight. A lot of these rounds were close and hard for some judges to score. Pacquiao is a very popular and likeable guy — so he’s going to get a lot of really close rounds because a lot of judges aren’t observant or technical enough in their scoring.
But I think Marquez has the perfect style to beat Pacquiao — and Pacquiao has a really good style to give Floyd all kinds of trouble.Posted January 18, 2014 6:29 pm
Floyd don’t have to fight the up and coming fighters, only one left in his era which is Pacqiuao then he can retire.Posted January 18, 2014 6:23 pm

Lara… Garcia… Pac… He may fight Khan for a breather… Than fight Pac and pray he gets the D… Then retire without having to face Lara or Garcia.Posted January 18, 2014 5:16 pm

Wow Floyd Mayweather Jr does it again, he takes another easy fight for him the list keeps going and going.until he retires or loses (hope will lose one bad day so he can s£ut up once and for all and walk away.
He is just milking us all and many people buy it all.
The greedy and extreme cherry picking Floyd Mayweather Jr is just hopeless and bad for boxing. I feel sorry for all who have to suffer becouse of this jerk in boxing and I’m glad that I have never paid i single cent to him andhis fights becouse he don’t deserve all that money and fame.
For 1 Mayweather jr, there are 1000 boxers who work as hard with training and fighting but don’t come near all that fortune and fame and Mayweather jr needs BIG TIME to get back down earth and take the bloody hit.
He have never had hearth and never been a warrior in the ring and never fought an opponent who could take it to him and what kind of vozer is that? Not a real champion I say. Only aboxer who have fought and lost in a battle can learn and become better.Posted January 18, 2014 4:48 pm

@Hecdog…, Marquez left Pacquiao for dead. He knocked him dead at the age of 39—in the only decisive win in the entire series. Pacquiao was a quivering wreck on the canvas and that is the main memory of that series everybody will remember forever and ever.
It was a perfect punch. A once in a lifetime punch that landed with perfect, devastating impact—and had the effect of any other punch that lands that hard and perfectly. It was an embalming job.
Why mess with perfection???
Not when you’re going to be 41 in your next fight… JMM is no fool.Posted January 18, 2014 3:21 pm
Danny Garcia is taller and bigger than Floyd. He weighs heavier into the ring than Floyd does. Floyd cannot hold 150. Danny is easily bigger, taller, tougher, younger, and harder punching than Mayweather.Posted January 18, 2014 3:08 pm
A well written article with truth. Manny Pacquiao has an aura about him that instills fear in past , present and future opposition. The memories of elite fighters being butchered as a lamb is in a slaughter house has traumatized Floyd Mayweather and Juan Manuel Marquez. They do have real fear regardless of what their excuses are. First Marquez gets a win over Manny Pacquiao albeit a lucky punch while Manny stepped on his foot and fell off balance. Marquez was being pushed and punished and was on his way out before the Ped Punch landed. Marquez, shortly after is offered a 5th fight with the biggest pay day of his life, and he refuses the biggest fight of his career because as he says”I want to keep this feeling.” What? So, Marquez wins a fight and then says no, I beat you and I’m not going to give you a chance to beat me even though you gave me 4 fights? This is inexcusable, and their is no credible excuse for his cowardly act. Floyd Mayweather on the other hand is simply afraid to risk losing to a man he knows full well he will have problems with. He will have problems because manny Pacquiao can match his speed, best his power as well as his feet. Manny has that unorthodox fighting style that has his opponents off balance and lost, especially a counter puncher like Floyd Mayweather. Floyd mayu have beaten all southpaws, but he has showed weaknesses in those fights. Manny is not an ordinary southpaw. He is still very capable off turning back the hands of time for one Floyd Mayweather. The Mayweathers have a history of showing fear ever since Manny hit the big stage. We all heard the comments by them. They feared for Floyd’s health and safety as did Floyd himself. Floyd now has made a mockery of himself by using excuse after excuse. There’s no credibility in Floyd’s ongoing excuses. They make as much sense as Marquez’s excuse. Fans aren’t dumb, they read in between the lines. Boxing is suppose to be about fighters taking on everyone. There’s no running or hiding inside a ring. There’s only running and hiding outside a ring as Floyd and Marquez continue to do. Manny Pacquiao is an hornorable man that did not run from anyone. He has always been a gallant warrior that never cheated fans out of their hard earned money, win or lose. He has true character. He never hid after his loss. He never made excuses. He got himself back up, fought again, and said this is part of life. Floyd and Marquez should take this advice. Manny is the best.APosted January 18, 2014 3:02 pm
Left Hook you are plain ass stupid. Cheato couldnt fight a lick without his plaster. Who did Cheato stop after his plaster was removed? What punch did he ever land on an old Mosley you idiot? What punch of Mosley’s did he ever manage to block or duck? Mosley never hit Canelo with a damned thing that was any good for 12 rounds but hit Cheato with everything he threw. Comparing Cheato to Canelo is the thing of idiots like you.
You are the dumbest and lamest moron I’ve ever had the displeasure of posting to. Cheato was no middleweight. He had 2 fights at 154 and lost them both. He had no fights at middleweight where he’d get killed by the 50th ranked fighter at that weight. Canelo could compete well at middleweight and only lost to Floyd at 154. Cheato couldnt carry Canelo’s jock strap you glue sniffing putz.Posted January 18, 2014 3:01 pm
Floyd Mayweather is a great boxer, but NOT the greatest ever. His ‘0’ has to be taken into proper context. The likes of Ray Robinson, Pep, Benny Leonard, Saddler,Tunney, Louis, Ray Leonard, Hagler, Duran, Monzon, Clay/Ali and others etc. can all be said to have had greater careers, for so many different reasons, in my humble opinion. Even Manny Pacquiao can be seen as greater than Floyd…Posted January 18, 2014 2:48 pm
I agree with Tark with the exception of Garcia. At this point I would like to see Floyd fight Lara or even Andrade or Molina. I like Garcia but Floyd would be to big for him at this point, he had problems with Judah and a bigger Floyd would beat him, I see this as a reason Floyd will probably take the fight but I don’t much care to see it.Posted January 18, 2014 1:53 pm
D, your rite Margarito cheated and that means all his fights are irrelevant? Your in idiot, Canelo doesn’t have the balls Margarito had even though I like Canelo, but you are to stupid to understand my point and have a weak argument. Manny fought a very good middle weight that night when he wasn’t even at the welter weight limit. It realy did prove more than Mayweather fighting Alverez at a catch weight, you queer!Posted January 18, 2014 1:43 pm
If you beat 3 undefeated guys who can’t fight, it doesn’t make you the GOAT.
Diego Corrales was 33-0… Mayweather had a great win over a weight drained Corrales.. Corrales was a dead dog—but it’s not Floyd’s fault Chico wasn’t ready. Corrales never could box worth crap…but it was a great win for Floyd.
Ricky Hatton was 44-0… Hatton had never fought any good prime fighter in his life. He fought Luis Collazo who can’t box or punch worth a lick—and Ricky objectively lost to Collazo by 3 points. Collazo literally beat the crap out of Hatton and nearly knocked him out. The referee should have taken points from Hatton for excessive holding when he was nearly knocked out. Hatton was Jake LaMotta without the iron chin. He literally had no skills and his 2nd go at welterweight was with Floyd… A total mismatch and a virtual sparring session… still a great win for Floyd.
Canelo Alvarez was 42-0-1.. Undefeated, but not a perfect record.. He was a real threat to Floyd if he was ready to fight—but he wasn’t. He was weight drained and couldn’t do a damned thing. That’s not Floyd’s fault. Floyd was ready as Hell and did his job. Floyd was ready to fight harder if Canelo had anything to give. Canelo was a dead dog that night… but a great win for Floyd.
Now, as you can see Floyd has been lucky…
He’s lived a charmed life up to now—like Yory Boy Campas lived up to the point where Campas was 56-0—and actually fought somebody who could punch, i.e. Felix Trinidad. Campas couldn’t box or punch and Trinidad could punch. You know who’s going to win that one.
Trinidad lived a charmed life too… He was 40-0 and a great puncher, but couldn’t box… Then he fought Bernard Hopkins who was a skillful all-around prime fighter … Trinidad looked like a 3rd rate sparring partner.
Now there are finally 3 fighters who could give Floyd great fights.
Danny Garcia doesn’t have a jab—but he has everything else. He can box good and is a great puncher. He’s undefeated and a real threat to Floyd.
Erislandy Lara is coming on like gangbusters… Lara’s domination of Trout shows he’s jumped his skill levels up into the stratosphere… He can box, punch, and do about everything from his tricky southpaw stance.
Then there’s Manny Pacquiao… Pacquiao has every offensive weapon and is now a better boxer than he ever… Pac’s skills are smoother, faster, and more judiciously applied than before… Sadly, Floyd won’t fight these 3 guys.Posted January 18, 2014 1:25 pm
Canelo Alvarez is no Cheato Margarito you moron. Cheato was nothing.
Canelo ran the table on Mosley without getting hit — and Mosley hit Cheato with every punch he threw. Canelo was weight drained when he fought Floyd, but at least he could defend himself. Cheato can’t.Posted January 18, 2014 1:22 pm
Pac is a JR welter at most, fighting at welter weight. Floyd is a bigger true welter, if not jr middle. If pac fought Canello, I have no doubt he could beat him, he beat a much bigger Margarito, (and I do mean BEEEEEAT…..) That would not prove anything for Pac that he has not proven, any cmmon fighter between him and Floyd got the worst of it from Manny, and if anyone thinks Pac should fight Canello than why shouldn’t Floyd fight a top middle wt like Sergio or GGG, not that they should, but both asked for the fight and agreed to come down to 154, I think it should be at 160, (Iremember Floyd saying he doesn’t believe in catch weight: LOL!!!) Floyd is and always will be a ducker, he won’t fight these guys because he would get destroyed. I don’t even think he could beat a lot of guys at 154 if he actually fought them at 154. Pac fought Margarito with a 17LBS weight disadvantage. F..k Floyd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Posted January 18, 2014 1:07 pm
AGAIN WHY NOT NOW RETIRED NOW ….. QUACK5Posted January 18, 2014 1:05 pm
“It’s time for Manny to fight Canelo.”
Canelo is a jr. middleweight–a very big one too. Pac is a welterweight who only fights at welterweight. But if Canelo were a true welterweight, Pac would kick his azz.Posted January 18, 2014 12:34 pm

To be fair to FMJr. I can diplomatically say that he’s not necessarily scared of Manny but avoid to fight Manny because he & his team feels he can be defeated by Manny Pacquiao & that he won’t be able to recover from that defeat if it happens, psychologically & emotionally .

best boxing news for a long time…leave boxing to boxers ..business to business men..Posted January 18, 2014 4:53 am
Boxing has been around since the dawn of time. Boxing was quite popular in ancient Rome both as a sport and as part of Gladiator contests. Fighters were looked upon as God’s. Boxing has came a long ways since that time. We have so many more titles and promoters that have ruined this beautiful sport, but today a man by the name of Floyd Joy Sinclair, better known by the boxing world as Floyd Mayweather Junior, has done irreparable damage to boxing. He has done the most cowardly act a boxer can do. He avoided a fighter that boxing fans all over the world wanted him to fight. The same fans that pay him his large salary. Fans praqctically begged him to take on the one fighter that was wreaking havoc on every fighter that dared step inside the squared circle with him. He was dismantling and annihilating the very same fighters Floyd Mayweather had beaten, but in a much more convincing fashion. Manny was breaking ribs, eye sockets, faces and their will to win. Manny Pacquiao came on the scene like no other fighter had before him. From a distance, Floyd Mayweather Senior, and Uncle Roger wanted to part of the hurricane that is Manny Pacquiao. Floyd Mayweather junior, his father and his uncle told the world that they did not want to put Floyd Mayweather Junior’s health and safety at risk. Floyd was in total awe of this destructive force of nature. The Mayweather family then began a distraction of sorts to fool boxing fans. They tried attacking Manny Pacquiao in the media by accusing him of using Performance Enhancing Drugs. They were sued, and settled and had to give Manny Pacquiao a large amount of money. Floyd also had to apologize publicly, and did. They then followed that up with money issues, promoter issues and a list of demands that were laughable. The ancient gladiators must be turning in their graves to see a man that calls himself a fighter doing all he can to avoid one fighter. Time has passed, and the Super Mega Fight is 5 years too late. The boxing world, specifically all the past and present fighters lost all respect for Floyd Mayweather Junior. Floyd has ruined his name, reputation and whatever legacy he had. Ask any person off the street, and they will tell you that Floyd was scared to fight Manny Pacquiao. Great fighters like Tyson, Holmes, Duran, Leonard, Hagler and many more now look at Floyd as nothing more than a scared fighter that padded his record to get wins, but not fight the best out there. Floyd Mayweather Junior should retire now. He has nothing else to prove because his true character is out in the open. Even if he should find the courage to fight the legendary Manny Pacquiao, the fight wouldn’t mean much. Their destiny was in the hands of Floyd Mayweather Junior, and he decided to let it pass by. Even his most loyal fans are dumbfounded and disappointed that Floyd chose not to fight. Truly great fighter take on the best of their era. Win or lose, they gain more respect from fans by taking risks instead of running away from opponents. Sugar Ray Robinson never ran, Roberto Duran never Ran, Evander Holyfield never ran, Oscar de La Hoya never ran and so on. Floyd Mayweather Junior ran. He committed the greatest sin any fighter could commit. He has failed boxing, himself and all of his peers, even those that are now resting in peace. Floyd Mayweather Junior can now do us all a huge favor and retire from boxing. He will not be missed. Cowards are very rarely ever remembered. The kids growing up today, his fans and boxing fans in general will only recall Floyd as the one that was scared to fight. The money, his wins, materials, ego and his climb to becoming a champion will be forgotten. Floyd will be remembered as a money making coward that was beaten by his own fear of the legendary and arguably the greatest fighter of all time, Manny Pacquiao.Posted January 18, 2014 4:52 am
Void will forever be remembered in boxing history as the “so called” number 1 p4p fighter that did everything in his power to avoid getting in the ring with a midget. to whom he felt, would jeopardize his health….Posted January 18, 2014 4:43 am
So will he retire a coward and have a question mark over his legacy or will he eventually fight Pacquiao? There are no more reasons for him not to. Pacquiao has accepted all of FMJ demands and yet the latest is “I don’t like your manager”. He looks weaker and weaker, more afraid than ever before and to be fair he would beat Pacquiao IMO, but until he proves it, expect an * next to his name in the pantheon of history.Posted January 18, 2014 4:39 am
