“why does floyd fight slow fighters like maidana,” because that’s how he will remain undefeated!! You go floyd!!Posted February 9, 2014 10:33 am
Hidalgo…, “The only time Khan “ran” was in the 4th round.”
Not “ran” he ran without quotation marks… He turned his back and sprinted away… You say he was trying to get out of the zone of fire???? … It’s a FIGHT!!! You don’t turn your back and run in a boxing match.
Nobody runs the whole fight.. It’s not a track meet.. he ran.
He didn’t run as early in the Maidana fight.. Danny got to him much earlier than Maidana did.. It wasn’t a 4-rounder WAS IT??? … Khan wasn’t going to be able to run for 9 rounds was he??? He was THROUGH!!!Posted February 9, 2014 2:17 am
Mama:Floyd,this is the news..100′s of sports commentators,sports journalists,and from TV sports shows from around the world are gonna now put you in a position that you can’t back out,because now they all know that Pacquiao will;
Because Floyd wants to show his dance moves. He can make all those watching even more stupid for watching his circus of a fight.Posted February 8, 2014 7:42 pm

Tark bi curious ? Kindell
Tark man up you have been bi curious for a long time till you took it to reality and met up with Mork and company in Vegas. That old Plymouth out front that you asked about. You came in all just curious next thing you know within an hour or so you were down on your knees.Posted February 8, 2014 3:44 am
“running like a scared rabbit”
Hidalgo says… “The hell he was. You better go back and watch that fight again Tark.” and “You should watch more Floyd fights.”
You’re BLIND Hidalgo… Khan was RUNNING from Garcia… He even turned his back and sprinted away at one point.. It was LUDICROUS!!!
Floyd never ran like that in his life… He may be doing a little running from Pacquiao… Lara… and Garcia, but he never ran during a fight.
Boxing isn’t running… What Amir “ChickenCrap” Khan did was running.Posted February 8, 2014 12:00 am
Floyd got the facial expression for this one from 50 cent pffff lolPosted February 7, 2014 11:39 pm

that’s right @gman. also I’m very careful with my selection of opponents.Posted February 7, 2014 7:31 pm
Hidalgo Floyd stood right in the pocket plenty of times with hard hitters. Cotto and Canelo to name a few it just that he couldn’t hurt him clean moron. Nothings smart about going in there slugging it out to see who drops first like all mexican fighters do. Floyd would get killed if he did that and the whole object of the sweet science is to hit and not be hit. Just ask guys who been KTFO before like Manny….Posted February 7, 2014 7:09 pm
What’s up with the Khan being coked up rumors? True or false? Either way he’s trying to cash out on one last payday then he’ll retire. Won’t buy it. Obv it’s Floyd vs Khan and nothing’s changed in recent months but the posturing. They need to announce it or GTFO.Posted February 7, 2014 6:40 pm
Because he knows that he can easily beat Maidana. He just runs all night and tires Maidana out. Easy win. Same deal with the glass jawed and reckless Khan. Easy fight either way for little floyd. LF doesn’t think the FANS will boy cott this fight, but he’s wrong.
until he fights Pacquiao, the PPV numbers will be Low.Posted February 7, 2014 5:43 pm
Hidalgo…. Khan was getting murdered by Garcia… He was down 3 times and running like a scared rabbit… I’ve never seen anybody run like that in my life… He as teetering all over the place the last time he got up and had no balance.. It was a late stoppage.
If the ref didn’t stop it Khan would have gotten killed. He was gone and his legs were jelly.Posted February 7, 2014 5:40 pm
LOL, a slow fighter who put Khan on his ass and beat him from pillar to post. Khan compares himself to Judah & Oscar? Both of them have better chins than Khan!Posted February 7, 2014 5:17 pm
@Khan’s Cuz Achmed
I’m glad you’re too young to place bets, because no one wants to see a young boy losing his pocket money like that.
Oh yes, and betting is haram anyway, right?
How old are you, by the way? 12? 13?Posted February 7, 2014 3:16 pm
Why would Floyd want to fight Maidana over me? I barely beat an over the hill Diaz.Posted February 7, 2014 2:43 pm
Khan’s Cuz Achmed
Floydee is insanely scared of Amir. He knows he can’t stand up to the power. He nearly got KO’ed by a very aged and worn Mosley. Amir is young, crisp and full of brain scrambling power. Floydee’s O is about to go if he has the hairy boy’s to step up. #FloydeePeePeePants #TastesLikeChickenweather #KingKhan2014Posted February 7, 2014 2:36 pm
I’ve seen Khan in person at a few fights. He says he had to kill himself to make 140, but he walks around no more than 150. He is really skinny – he looks more like a middle distance runner. He certainly wouldn’t have struggled that much make 140. Alas it is irrelevant as he is going to 147 for Floyd and looks like he’ll make $3-5m.Posted February 7, 2014 11:50 am
It seems Maidana has earned this chance by beating Broner in a great performance. Does he have a good shot at beating Mayweather? Probably not, but who does? I actually think Khan would give Mayweather a more interesting fight, but again, Maidana had a great win last time out, and should be able to cash in on it.Posted February 7, 2014 11:50 am
He has a chin, more aggressive.Posted February 7, 2014 11:46 am
@Rasheed – “I heard on the grapevine that the Khans have a few of their employees working flat out on creating FB and Twitter accounts and have swung the votes.”
Yeah, given the amount of money at stake, they could hire software engineers to write a script to automate the whole process (or at least 99% of it… CAPTCHA phrases would probably still need to be entered manually).Posted February 7, 2014 11:15 am
Floyd is running out of time. We all know Mayweather wants to fight KHAN, but the people cant be ignore. He is making fools out of those people voting. He needs to step up and be a fighter AND LET AL HAYMOND AND ESPINOZA DECIDE FOR HIM.WE ALL KNOW HE IS JUST A HIGH PAY COW!!!Posted February 7, 2014 10:54 am
Amir just keep your gob shut everything that you say is nonsensical my friend.Posted February 7, 2014 10:13 am
Because Mayweather would have a better chance of winning! What a ridiculous question.Posted February 7, 2014 10:11 am
MAIDANA WANTS KHAN REMATCH NEXT. VOTE MAIDANA VS KHAN!!!! BOYCOTT BORING FLOYDPosted February 7, 2014 9:50 am
I heard on the grapevine that the Khans have a few of their employees working flat out on creating FB and Twitter accounts and have swung the votes. That is from a very credible source.Posted February 7, 2014 9:38 am
MJames… Surely you aren’t suggesting that Audley ISN’T on a world title journey…?Posted February 7, 2014 8:28 am
There’s very little merit in the “Khan beat Maidana” and “Madiana couldn’t knock out Khan” arguments. Both these outcomes would have been the reverse without the heavy handed protection afforded to Khan by the referee. Now that the gloss has well and truly rubbed off Khan, he isn’t going to have that leeway any more.Posted February 7, 2014 8:26 am
Yep, I am in London. Khan is considered as the biggest joke in boxing over here, after Audley Harrison, who is still telling people he is on a world title journey believe it or not.Posted February 7, 2014 8:24 am
Khan is a total embarrassment to ALL us English people , he is a loser who we simply can not be behind..we think of him as a bit of a joke really…nothing more. He should fight his way in to a position not beg on twitter….NO LIKE!!Posted February 7, 2014 8:01 am
Agreed with boxing Barlow. Though khan don’t deserve the chance I think he had a better (if very slight) chance of giving mayweather a tough fight over maidina. And khan fight will be more exciting too. But these are the only 2 choices for Floyd at the moment so talk of PAC man and GGG is pointlessPosted February 7, 2014 7:29 am
I would disagree zab Judah in the first 3 rounds of his fights I think could match khanPosted February 7, 2014 7:17 am
You know what? Khans right! Why on earth do we want to see Maidana fight Mayweather? for a start Khan beat Maidana. Then you’ve got the fact that we’ve seen fighters who are a lot better than Maidana with a similar style come up well short against Mayweather in the past. Whilst Khan has got his faults there is no doubt in my mind that Mayweather has never fought anyone anyone with Khans hand speed. Take into consideration that the only fighters who have beaten Khan are those with explosive knock out punch power I think it makes for a good fight. How can you even think Maidana’s power will be enough to get to Mayweather when it couldnt even get him a knock out against Khan! Khan is supposedly chinny, but Maidana couldnt kncok him out.Posted February 7, 2014 7:00 am
Mama: What’s interesting son, is that in a poll of writers on RingTV, a good deal of them feel that YOU will wind up fighting Khan anyway, even if Maidana is the one that wins the poll vote.
How embarrassing for Khan, begging people to vote for him and now begging the media to show him in a positive light. He doesn’t deserve a shot at Floyd, plain and simple. He has no belt, has never fought at 147lbs before, he’s 2-2 in his last four fights and got dropped by faded lightweight Julio Diaz last time out. He ducked Alexander last December because he was afraid of losing, which makes a mockery of him saying he’s better suited to the welterweight division. If that were true, then why duck Devon when you could proved how much better you are at the higher weight? No. The truth is, Khan just wants a retirement pay day. He just wants the Floyd cash and then will retire. He’s already an inactive, semi-retired fighter who commands zero respect from boxing fans. Floyd should give Maidana the shot, he has earned it and his recent form is electric.Posted February 7, 2014 5:27 am
AgreedPosted February 7, 2014 5:14 am
Maidina is a one diamentional fighter though he is very good at it mayweather can beat guys like him with his eyes closed. Khan had great speed and is willing to take big risks but is technically flawed and has a glass chin, so both fights are very winnable for Floyd. So do you go for the guy who deserves the fight the most or the guy who will provide much better entertainment( by getting ktfo)? True boxing fans don’t want either, but Floyd is running out of choices, the May fight will have to be one of these guys and I’m guessing khan had been a done deal long before Floyd’s cheap poll to set this fight up. All I can hope is the September date we get a better choice. PAC man/ Bradley winner? GGG? Don’t bank on that.Posted February 7, 2014 4:50 am
U naturally get bigger and go up in in weight as u get older….der. Both guys mentioned near killed em selves 2 weigh in..Posted February 7, 2014 3:01 am
Rookie….when was the last time ODH fought at jr welter b4 manny?Posted February 7, 2014 2:59 am
Cotto massive weight drained. Stop it. He weighed 146 for clottey and 145 for Pac. Yeah that’s massive. And DLH chose 147 not Pac.Posted February 7, 2014 2:43 am
Yep I rate Garcia, plenty of room 4 improvement 2. Can’t really teach heart and timing? U got it or u don’t.Posted February 7, 2014 2:37 am
Garcia isn’t very fast but he has incredible timing. IF you throw a lot of punches at him he will time the HECK out of you.Posted February 7, 2014 2:27 am
Manny is a legend but how his fanboys attack Floyd 4 fighting Khan/Madaina is a bit 2 faced…manny has done amazing things but he 2 like all of them have taken some weak competition. Diaz was and is a joke, Clotty is useless, Rios a punching bag with a head like cement. Morales was past it as was Berrara, Dela Hoya and Cotto massive weight drained. Yes both these guys have had amazing careers and both will b talked as greats….but if u ask me both guys r 2 blame 4 this never happening and both r as bad as each other. Can’t wait until both r gone….both selfish and don’t care what the fans want…..write about some1 or something else 4 F/-k sake. Hope they both get laced….Posted February 7, 2014 2:17 am
Why don’t Maidana and Khan just have a rematch?! Whoever wins it can fight Mayweather. TRUTH!! WORD!!Posted February 7, 2014 2:04 am
It’s not logic… Malignaggi was stopped by feather hitters Hatton and Khan.
Paulie went the distance with Broner.. That should be a clue.. Broner can’t fight.
Therefore Maidana isn’t so hot… He lost to Khan and Kotelnik.. Anybody who’s last name starts with a K beat Maidana.Posted February 7, 2014 1:55 am
Wait. I thought Mayweather would never fight a guy like MiadanaPosted February 7, 2014 1:39 am
Maidana beat Broner, Floyd’s chosen successor. Now people want to see if Maidana can beat the master. It’s only logical.Posted February 7, 2014 1:17 am
Because 70% of the fans said so??? Maybe?Posted February 7, 2014 1:13 am
Khan is the punching bag of Manny in Mannys training session.Posted February 7, 2014 1:11 am
Khan equals Victor Ortiz – two delirious losers!Posted February 7, 2014 1:09 am
WHAT IS KHAN’s plan B? If this guy does not get the fight career OVER anyways.Posted February 7, 2014 1:05 am
Floyd cant make 154 he has weight issues he always comes in under like around 149lbs, Lara is another nobody anywayPosted February 7, 2014 1:02 am
Tark-ur right, think Floyd will fight Lara next @ jr middle. Can’t c Floyd going down 2 jr welt 4 Garcias belts. A possible fight @ welter 4 those 2..Posted February 7, 2014 12:46 am
Maidana is very slow but he can punch. That’s not enough.
Khan is slow (to get away from devastating punches) and he can’t punch. He can’t even get rid of lightweights. A laughable matchup.
Lara, Garcia, and Pacquiao are all very fast and they can punch like Hell.
So Floyd needs to fight one of them.Posted February 7, 2014 12:43 am
How quickly things change….Madiana is no slower than Rios, except Madaina can fight. Put both Khan and Madaina in there with him. Over both these 2 so called champs…both greedy and selfish. I may not watch either of there next fights….my attention has turned 2 guys like Lara, Mikey & Danny Garcia…..also interested in GGG stepping up, Ward stepping up and seeing what Alvarez does from here….Floyd and Manny can both eat a d/$kPosted February 7, 2014 12:27 am
Mayweather vs Guerrero purses: Floyd to make $32 million, Guerrero $3 millionPosted February 7, 2014 12:05 am
Floyd does not give then big money.
Amir Khan and GBP signed a 3-fight deal which says that GBP will have to pay Amir a minimum of $1 million dollar per fight.
So ppl saying khan is looking for retirment funds it kind of no real talk.Posted February 6, 2014 11:53 pm
IF you’re SO fast then go get you a Championship belt real FAST. Maidana already got a WW Championship faster than YOU DID. SO who’s slow NOW???Posted February 6, 2014 11:52 pm
Having beaten who exactly?
At the ripe old age of 31 I might add!?Posted February 6, 2014 11:50 pm
GGG is now the man.Posted February 6, 2014 11:46 pm
Because Maidana is a CHAMP and you’re NOT.Posted February 6, 2014 11:33 pm
@50C; how much does gamboa make per fight?
ESB my post moves too quick for you. Must be out of your prime. Time to hang em up or what?
Young L- If EVEN you know that then its so obvious and transparent of Floyd’s intentions. Isnt it? NO to KHAN and NO to Maidana.Posted February 6, 2014 11:19 pm
Dont matter who money picks..they gone lose. #realtalkPosted February 6, 2014 11:14 pm
50C- Probably around that ballpark. Still a larger payday than anyone else Khan would face.Posted February 6, 2014 11:02 pm
That picture is like Kobe standing in front of Lil Romeo and now wow talking about who’s got next! C’mon FloydPosted February 6, 2014 10:56 pm
I dont think when guys like ortiz and khan flight Floyd they get paid much.
How much do you think Khan will get paid if he fights floyd?Posted February 6, 2014 10:42 pm
MP vs TB 2 will do great at ppv.
Floyd should keep doing this polling idea and then blame his fans for choosing bums as his opponents.
,,,,,,Posted February 6, 2014 10:40 pm
Only if Khan were to fight and be victorious against Kell Brook would I even entertain the idea of Khan vs Mayweather. Khan-Brook is the fight that makes the most sense if Khan (or Brook) want to have their names thrown in the with likes of the Pacquiao, Bradley, Marquez, Maidana, etc and then actually get the fight made.Posted February 6, 2014 10:19 pm
The phones were open when Freddie Roach said:
“He does not react well to having blood taken. He’s weak for three days, afterwards. Some people pass out after blood being taken. Maybe it’s not physical, but it bothers him mentally. We can’t have that five days or three days out from the fight. I don’t want to send my fighter in there feeling weak mentally or physically, so we would not agree to that.”
Then Manny Pacquiao:
“As long as they’re not getting a large amount of blood, I am willing to give out blood as close to two weeks before the fight,”
“The fight won’t happen until we build a stadium in Las Vegas big enough to host a fight of this magnitude”
Then Franklin Gacal Jr:
“History is waiting and Bob should free Manny,” Gacal said. “That would be Bob’s greatest contribution to boxing history.”
The phone has NOT always been on 24/7 now has it?
However, Floyd has always been clear as he told Larry Merchant live, post-fight Shane Mosley in the ring:
“If Manny Pacquiao take the blood and urine test, we can make the fight happen for all the fans”
