What “legacy?”

Perdum – yes, the biggest star who refused rbt while his trainer went on record that he didn’t trust what his strength & conditioning coach was feeding him in his shakes.

Floyd is the biggest start of his generation. How come nobody questions the excuses Arum has made? Floyd has come up with 3, Arum has come up with 10. But yet it is Floyds fault. That is funny.

His legacy is of a very talented, but risk-averse fighter who avoided the biggest star of his generation-Pac.

Case for unified champions:
A 2 or 3 body unified champion will have to face mandatory defences such as Carl Froch and will mean they will have to box 2 or 3 times a year against the highest available contender and we will go back to the days when champions routinely made 3 or 4 defences a year. This keeps the division and challengers moving and bubbling and relevant instead of treading water like they did with long term once a year defenders such as Joe Calzaghe. once we have unified champions we can focus on hammering the alphabet boys into proper shape to make sure we don’t get bogus ratings for their fighters and we will no longer get the situations where fighters mayweaer and Pacquiao manipulate their positions in the sport to face non-challengers fight after fight such as Ortiz, Khan, Margarito, Clottey, where more able challengers abound. I watched last night and frank buglioni is WBO European super middleweight champion!!! WTF? nowadays if you don’t own a title there must be something wrong with you? We now have multiple European champions!!!! WTF?

FM is proving two things with Khan: he’s terrified of Pacman, and he’s only in it for the money now. If he was fighting AK on showtime for free, I might be a little more forgiving, but this will be a huge PPV event and it’s complete garbage. Khan has no shot, but I’ll be rooting for him. I’m paying for it either. I’ll wait a week. FM proved a lot by fighting and dominating Canelo, and fighters often take a less dangerous fight after a big event like that, but this is crap.

Mikey not Mickey

Posted February 16, 2014 6:26 am 


Craig

Mickey – I’m well aware the main guys at middle are avoiding fighting him what I’m suggesting as a possible solution is he puts himself in the position of mandatory at light middle or even Super middle to force the hand of the top guys in those divisions to fight him. If he wants to test himself against the best surely he can do that. I actually think he will handily beat most in those divisions but he can’t just say he’ll fight anyone and do nothing about it.

Posted February 16, 2014 6:10 am 


Mikey

Craig, its well known that Golovkin is the most avoided boxer in the world, so how’s he’s supposed to fight top quality opposition if they refuse to fight him dumbazz?

Posted February 15, 2014 9:59 pm 


Craig

Captain Jack – it’s one thing calling out Mayweather in a post fight interview and declaring he’ll fight anyone from 154 to 168 as GGG, or his promotor, has done but another thing entirely actually doing it. It would be easy for a guy as active as GGG to have a couple of wins at light middle and force a mandatory with Mayweather but instead he’ll fight Adama who is ranked by no one.

Good to speak to someone with a bit of sense Craig. Totally agree these politics are screwing alot of good fight matchups. Lets say no Cold War. PAC ob fights may and so would Bradley. Then you have Thurman to fight all three. Prov v Garcia and or mattysse. All great fights lets hope something happens and we get some of those at the end of the year or early next

Posted February 15, 2014 8:39 pm 


Captain Jack Sparrow

Craig

Floyd holds the 154 belts.

GGG has offered to fight him several times, which means GGG will have to move down in weight to beat up Floyd, which he is happy to do.

But Floyd being the biggest con artist I’ve EVER seen in boxing will never fight him.

But by all means keep being a Floyd knob-jockey, there’s plenty of them here.

Posted February 15, 2014 7:54 pm 


Craig

Fair play. There isn’t an abundance of guys who can give him a challenge unfortunately and the guys who should be fighting him such as Pacquiao and Bradley are frozen out by politics. I personally think the suggestion of him fighting GGG is ridiculous though as it isn’t as simple as moving up one weight class he already has moved up five and light middle is already a weight he doesn’t manage to hit the limit of.

Posted February 15, 2014 7:19 pm 


Auzbox

That was no bashing. Marquez gained 17 pound and stood in front of him. PAC already had beaten Marquez also. No clottey isn’t a name may should have fought, I just put up 2 he didn’t. I like that he fought canelo. Sad canelo is years from his prime but may deserves all credit for the whipping he gave him. Rios well yes not a great fighter but has beaten everyone he had faced, accept PAC cause he has stopped Alvarado. I just wish floyd would have a challenge, we haven’t seen the best of him till he does.

Posted February 15, 2014 6:44 pm 


Craig

Clottey, Margarito, Rios… It’s funny how Pacqiao looks so good against guys with little or no lateral movement. Is Clottey a name you think Mayweather honestly should have fought? Let’s face it Mayweather fought Canelo when there is no danger Pacquiao would have gone near and if Pacquiao bashed up Cotto for Mayweather what happened when Mayweather returned the favour with Marquez?

Posted February 15, 2014 6:23 pm 


Auzbox

Floyd ducked margo and admitted it. He never fought clottey. Floyds most dangerous fight was cotto who PAC bashed for him. If you read what boxtra wrote weight means nothing. Hopkins did it against dela and stopped him and is older of coarse. Stop using weight as an excuse. All fighters fight drained at some stage and you don’t see them complaining about it

Posted February 15, 2014 5:39 pm 


Craig

Captain Jack Sparrow – if Mayweather has cherry picked his opponents it seems than Pacquiao has cherry picked the same guys does it not? And Mayweather schooled the same guy that left Pacquiao with his face in the canvas. Do you consider Rios to be a tougher opponent than Canelo? Cotto at light middle instead of 145lbs? De la Hoya at light middle instead of welter?

And what great boxers has Pacquiao fought that Mayweather hasn’t? Marquez, Mosely, Cotto, De la Hoya, Hatton, what makes Pacquiao great for fighting these same guys that Mayweather has? Also Mayweather fought Cotto at light middle not a weight drained 145lbs.

Mayweather isn’t Alis as s hole. He not even close. So don’t compare may to Ali. And I never made that statement an all time great did so don’t try make it come out of my mouth.

Ali had a jab and foot work, manny has zero jab and only no’s in and out movement not side 2 side. I’m getting worried about u? Ur spending way 2 much time writing about a guy u don’t like. He’s in all the PAC die hards fans head more than an opponent he’s facing. As good as Ali was and PAC is those 2 r very diff kind of fighters….hell Ali is more like Floyd than PAC? A young Ali anyway. The mover the dancer with fast hands. The ability 2 make guys miss and pay? That ain’t PAC. Wasn’t til Ali was older and couldn’t move as well when he became a battling type champ….let me guess….Foreman was ring side commentating the PAC Rios (punching bag) fight?

Azzboy the point that you not seeing is Manny will never get 40 mil again never not for one fight and not from anyone else out there. 40 mil is a helluva lot considering Floyd is the bigger draw who is promoting the whole thing Manny don’t deserve half, I know he regrets that sht now I bet he wished he had another chance that’s why the phone lines are open 24/7 stupid nutthugger name one fighter that would turn down that chance?

Khan will get less than 6 mill. Not much of a lottery. He fights poor fighters cause he doesn’t have to pay. Greedy greedy man. But it doesn’t matter his career will have a cloud over it for 50 percent of fans so that’s ok.

Ali retired years ago so he can’t fight the best ever. There was no debt when he was offered 40. He was just paid 35 to fight cotto. PAC was 1 p4p 40 was no where near half you clown

Azzbox why would Manny take 40 million to fight Floyd? Hell a few reason one would be he will never get that much fighting anyone else. Two he is 70 million in the whole in taxes 3. Its the most he ever made in one fight in his entire career. 4 its a chance of a lifetime to fight the greatest ever 4, We will never get another chance like it, 5. He is on the decline and his career is about over 6. Who in they right mind would not take a opportunity like it 7. Awe hell you get the picture. Poor pacturd

Manny will be ok without fighting Floyd he really don’t need Floyd thats why he tuned down 40 million for the fight in 09. Besides he has Bradley II and Marquez 5 this year in which he will not win both. He will go down a legend who passed up the biggest fight of his life and will have to fight way past his prime because of tax problems and he will be remember for suffering one of the most devastating KO in boxing by Marquez so no biggie he can always be a commentator once he learns better english.

“Boxers usually peak at about 31 to 33 — but Floyd might be peaking right now. I’ve never seen him look more ripped or stronger.”

He does look more ripped and stronger than ever. Perhaps there is credence to the rumors that he failed three “A” sample tests over the past two years.

Four BOGUS CATCHWEIGHT “championships” for the PacROIDED* one! Gotta give The Pharmaceutical One* his props for taking on Bradley…. Bradley is a “mover” at his comfortable weight, so PUNKquiao* will find himself in ALL sorts of trouble……Bradley by decision!!…..thats if the judges dont cheat him out of a win!! DRUGquiao* will not have learned much from fighting Rios, since Rios is SLOTH-like in nature and (once again) naturally DEPLETED & LIGHTER than The CATCH-WEIGHT King* himself! The PACTARDS live vicariously thru their idol, hoping this 108lb turn 147lb ROIDED abnormality can help them feel better about themselves as he* continues to use the last vestige of his NOW clean body – to earn a LAST HUGE payday…..PUNKquiao* has to wait his turn though, he cant arrogantly DEMAND a fight AFTER getting KO’d, then choosing to fight a small punch drunk action figure powered by 2 double A batteries….. This fight should be as good as Froch/Groves…..I got Groves in the rematch – “IF” he trains like theres “no tomorrow”……some good matches indeed…..with NO DRUGS included….cant wait!!

Posted February 14, 2014 11:17 pm 


TARK

PE… That was because Cotto has one of the slickest jabs ever… even though he’s very short.. He could reach Floyd but not the taller Trout.. Canelo doesn’t have a well developed jab at all.. It’s fair at best.. He could have a really good jab when he’s 30 if he keeps improving his jab with every camp — and has about 20 fights in that period..

Boxers usually peak at about 31 to 33 — but Floyd might be peaking right now. I’ve never seen him look more ripped or stronger. He’s never been as deft defensively or as accurate with his punches. He takes his time. He rushed just a little against Mosley and Cotto.

But Cotto is just at his peak and Canelo is years away from peaking. But still, Cotto turned down 10 million to fight Canelo. If Cotto upsets an aging Martinez look for him to defend against Canelo.

TARK

Boxtra…, I was clear that Floyd was probably going to beat Canelo, but NOT clear that Canelo would go with such lousy sparring or come into the fight weight drained … That destroyed a potentially competitive matchup.

Cotto trained his ass off for Floyd—and even MORE SO for Trout… When you’re an ATG fighter like Cotto, and lose a fight, you ALWAYS train harder to get it back in the next fight… And you DON’T take ANY undefeated World Champion lightly.. It was a TITLE SHOT for Cotto, NOT for Trout.. Cotto was only defending his title against Floyd.. Floyd had more incentive because he was going after his 2nd World Title at Super Welterweight Title.

If an ATG loses 2 fights in a row he hits the panic button and starts switching things around like coaches, sparring partners, training routines and all the things that Cotto is doing right now… He’s tired of getting his ass kicked but Martinez doesn’t care… Sergio just wants an easy win for good money and that’s what he sees in Cotto.

Posted February 14, 2014 8:41 pm 


Boxtradamus

I TOLD you all along TARK that the Trout-Cotto Fight was an ANOMALY. Cotto did not take Trout seriously while Trout rightfully trained for the Biggest Fight of his LIFE. I could see it right away. Cotto looked MUCH worse than he DID vs. Floyd. His Defense even fell WAY off. His retention is POOR. He had a tight Defense vs Floyd but then against Trout he went back to his old form of having an open guard….Learn how to assess performances. Not every Fighter is as consistent as Floyd and even he was a different Fighter when he switched from Roger to Floyd Sr….he was beginning to become a lot more stationary and flat footed with Roger as evidenced in the Mosley and Cotto Fights. Thats why he swiched to Floyd Sr. before he faced Canelo because you can’t be stationary against Bigger guys….NO need to reinvent the wheel. When a guy is Bigger than you its already been discovered that you need to stick and move stick and move. Floyd knows that and Roger wasn’t teaching that SO he made the switch….SO comparing Trout vs a LESSER Cotto to A LRSSER Floyd vs a BETTER Cotto is an ASININE comparison. And even THEN Floyd’s Defense was TWICE as GOOD as Trout’s vs Power shots. A LESSER Cotto landed 150 power shots on Trout while a BETTER Cotto barely landed 75 on a LESSER Floyd. …..To make a long story SHORT the BEST version of Trout is no comparison to the WORST version of Floyd. And that’s why Lara SPANKED him just as I predicted while you GOOFED and took Trout over Lara……..Go take a PERFORMANCE ASSESSING class.

Posted February 14, 2014 8:11 pm

Golovkin has a Top level guy calling him out and he won’t even open his mouth. He sent his promoter to DO the talking. Lara didn’t challenge your promoter. He challenged YOU.

Posted February 14, 2014 7:54 pm 


te tumbo

TARK, your recollection is accurate. my point is that the only opinion that made any realistic sense was that Canelo was simply not ready for Floyd. no incomplete fighter like Pacquiao* or work-in-progress like Canelo is ever going to get the drop on a still-prime Floyd, whose prime must now be assessed on a fight-by-fight basis. Mayweather is due to decline. the only question is when and v. whom? nonetheless, it doesn’t in any way diminish the manner in which he’s handled, managed, and dominated every challenger thus far and in the case of Canelo (or Pacquiao*) it was predictable.

Posted February 14, 2014 7:52 pm 


Boxtradamus

Floyd CAN face Golovkin and he would defeat him. While Floyd’s been facing Top level guys Fight after Fight Golovkin would be facing the First Top level guy of his CAREER. And he wouldn’t just be facing A Top level guy he would be facing THE Top level guy. Floyd WINS that by decision. Golovkin won’t be able to catch him….and by the way Floyd has been dominating 170 lbers for 2 straight training camps because SKILLS is more important than weight.

Posted February 14, 2014 7:49 pm 


TARK

Floyd doesn’t need any excuses because he’s the GOAT…

Pacquiao doesn’t need to make any excuses because he’s made an average of 65 million dollars per year. over the last 5 years… Too bad he owes more than that in taxes. DAMN, how can that be???

Which is good news for Boxing fans because he has to keep fighting for a few more years to get it all back… However he needs to hire a money manager and a tax accountant.

And if he already has them he needs to fire them — and start interviewing some new people… without taking any advice from Bob Arum.

Posted February 14, 2014 7:47 pm 


Poor pacturds

People make all these excuses why Floyd beat guys. When really he is just that good. Canelo weighed in at 152 lbs and probably ballooned up after so the weight was not a factor more than his skills he couldnt beat Floyd at any weight. Marquez got his ass beat by Floyd and they said he was too small Floyd cant win for loosing. But Manny got KTFO by Marquez he was juiced and he was cheated out the Bradley fight poor retards One is on top and one is one the bottom and nothing is going to change that. Hate all you want ass clowns

Posted February 14, 2014 7:28 pm 


TARK

BTW… I also consistently said it wouldn’t be smart for anyone to place beats on May-Canelo until AFTER the weighin. That was the biggest factor I said. How Canelo handled the weight issue.

Posted February 14, 2014 7:19 pm 


TARK

Tumbo… 90% of my pre Mayweather-Canelo posts weren’t building up Canelo… It depended on who I was posting against… If they said Floyd was going to KO Canelo I called them idiots and pointed out why the fight was going the distance — since Canelo is probably the best fighter Floyd faced.. If they said Canelo was going to win by KO I scoffed at them, asking when does Canelo KO top fighters??? He doesn’t. So you were only looking for one kind of post. I always said Floyd should be favored and he would win a close decision–up until close to the fight when I said Floyd should be favored by a wider margin—because of the sparring and other problems in Canelo’s camp.

Floyd says Cotto is the best he faced and Trout had no problems at all beating the slats off Cotto… And Trout was aggressive in that fight. All of a sudden when Trout faces Canelo he can’t fight effectively—and he is even 10 times worse trying to fight Lara.

Posted February 14, 2014 7:13 pm 


Liver Shot

Legacy? If he was worried about that he would have fought the best in their prime not at the end of their careers Oscar De La Hoya, Shane Mosely. Arturo Gatti. He was real quiet when those guy’s where in their prime. How come he didn’t fight Calazo or Berto when they were on top, or a Prime Cotto before Magarito used a foreign object to beat him up? Mayweather is smart and waited them out until they got beat or until they got old. Case and point we are still waiting for Manny Pacquiao. Can’t fault him for being a business man, he’s a great one and he’s a great boxer, too bad we will never know how great he could have been.

Posted February 14, 2014 7:12 pm 


TARK

If weight isn’t a factor. And you should be able to box anyone within 20 pounds of your weight according to Boxtra. Then Mayweather should have no problems fighting a guy like Gennady Golovkin — since Middleweight is a mere 13 pounds heavier than welterweight.

And not fight some coward who shrinks from fighting any good punchers or good boxers—such as Amirture Khan.

Tark stopped short of picking Canelo to defeat Mayweather but 90% of his pre-fight posts focused on what a difficult and potentially overwhelming challenge he would pose for Mayweather. conversely, i always opined that the matchup was severely premature and unnecessary. Canelo’s eyes were too big for his gloves and it showed in the actual bout. Canelo trying to anticipate something he’d never faced before and Mayweather calmly anticipating and seamlessly adapting to everything he’s already seen and experienced. Mayweather v. Canelo was never a good matchup for anybody other than those anxious to watch Mayweather experience a severe beating if not loss.

Canelo was going to get beat no matter WHAT he LOOKED like at the weigh in. Cotto, Ortiz, and Mosely all looked GREAT at the weigh in. Why didn’t TARK pick THEM??? OH he DID say that Ortiz would give Floyd hell but he was wrong there. The PRIME southpaw got SPANKED and exposed SO baf that he didn’t want to Box anymore. He wanted to change to MMA and then he tried to hug and kiss the SHARK as IF that will make a blood thirsty SHARK have mercy on him….Using TARK’s logic I guess he didn’t look GOOD enough at the weigh in.

Yeah yeah we are sick of hearing what Pac is going to do when the reality is he hasnt done sht. He hasnt dominated anyone since 09, Not counting punching bag Rios. Manny wasn’t tested against Rios. Marquez KTFO of him so until he shows us something shut the hell up Mike Tyson we are sick of hearing it just like the Rios fight sold 80 percent of the tickets in the first week but the ppvs numbers was less than 450,000 ppz dont blow smoke up the peoples ass. Manny has something to prove people dont just give you nthing and they dont give a dam about the past only who you beating today.

Did watch the PAC vs rio full fight, also Bradley prov, and Marquez .
Bradley make a mistake, he allow PAC back into the game.

PAC will easily win this fight, his foot work is back, his hand speed is back but best his rhythm back that throwing what he thinks in real time,
He also mixing it up very well. He was under pressure on performing and not being knock out he has no fear of Bradley weak punches watch PAC tune up Bradley face all night from all angles form in and out of the pocket, talking combination.

I taught Bradley was suppose to have improve in boxing nope, PAC lighter and has mean snap in real time, and watch him get even better this fight. Plus Bradley has somehow dropped his left hand and trying to copied Floyd.

PAC going to out box badly Bradley this fight and Floyd name will again come up. But what new about that. LOL.

F’k the “official stats”. they’ve been as thoroughly discredited as “official scorecards” in the eyes of any fight-fan with 20/20 vision. Trout was thoroughly dominated in EVERY category by Canelo: offense, defense, and footwork, Canelo simply OWNED Trout who professed “Shock” at his inability to deal with Canelo. never mind the spin-control following his loss, Trout’s candid and uncoached response immediately following the fight jibes with what actually occurred in the ring. only bias would compel anyone to believe otherwise.

during the build-up to Mayweather v.

“Trout out-landed Canelo by a significant punch-count” based on whose count? otherwise, Puh-Leeeze?! Trout was missing punches in unprecedented bunches. not even whittaker was able to make a presumably top-notch opponent miss that terribly. during a couple of exchanges, I literally lost count of the punches that Trout was missing. Canelo’s domination of Trout was as thorough as Mayweather’s of Guerrero. otherwise, i dare anybody to identify the boxing category that Canelo didN’T dominate Trout in?

“Lara would beat the hell out of Canelo for 12 rounds”. Yeh(?). the same guy who couldn’t “beat the hell” out of Molina or Angulo is gonna trample Canelo(?!). TARK, you’re as off about your praise (AGAIN) of the above-average Lara as you were premature about your praise of Canelo before his bout v. Mayweather: Severely. Lara has not demonstrated a single moment of elite ability v. any elite fighter, even Once. he’s been laboring v. the B-list with mixed results. he was bedeviled by Molina (who he simply refuses to rematch despite Molina owning a title); intimidated by Vanes; and decked twice by a plodding Angulo who seems to be struggling to make a healthy 154lbs any more. Lara is simply not a fighter. he’s a boxer. only a balanced combination of both will make him truly elite, which he’s not. he remains an aging and mixed-bag of potential.

Anonymous, you just don’t know Boxing.

GGG will fight any middleweight in the world that has achieved a position of middleweight prominence. Lara has NOT achieved that prominence. The most logical opponents for Golovkin right now are Quillin and Martinez. He called both men out repeatedly without any reply. Obviously they don’t want to fight him. They have both fought guys GGG has knocked out.

GGG would fight Lara in a heartbeat—it’s obviously an attractive fight—but it would depend on what the offer was, and it would have to be at middleweight. Put up the money and venue or STFU!!! All these other guys have had promotional backing and they’ve paid up.

Floyd Mayweather is the 154-pound world champion so why isn’t he fighting Lara—who is obviously the best 154-pounder in the world???

GGG gains no title by fighting Lara—so money would be his only motivation—and he’s making tons of money right now. It would have to be a damned good offer. It’s one thing to call somebody out to gain tons of publicity—it’s another thing to put up a serious offer.

TARK

Canelo could never hang with GGG… He’d be stopped… Angulo is more Canelo’s speed because he can’t box a lick.

Lara would beat the hell out of Canelo for 12 rounds. Lara is contemplating challenging the middleweights—because all the 154-pounders are running scared from him after his massive domination of Austin Trout.

Trout out-landed Canelo by a significant punch-count… Trout completely dominated the ATG Miguel Cotto—and got hit with fewer jabs than Floyd did from Cotto… But Trout couldn’t find Lara with a search party—and he was eating leather like there’s no tomorrow.

Lord Gonzo posts this, as always backing his arguments up with hard proof and incontestable evidence yet again.

Dan Rafael

”Golovkin hasn’t heard the final bell since an eight-round decision win over Amar Amari in 2008. That means he has knocked out all 10 challengers he has faced in his title defenses.

There’s a reason he is must-see TV, even if HBO blew it on this fight and did not work out a deal to show the fighter WHO IS UNDER CONTRACT TO THE NETWORK and has become one of it’s cornerstone fighters (and best ratings draws).

When HBO, which has exclusive broadcast rights to Golovkin’s fights in North America, initially said it wouldn’t have room for Golovkin in its February schedule, K2 promoter Tom Loeffler made a deal with South African promoter Rodney Berman to put on the Monte Carlo fight, just as he had for Golovkin-Ishida”

Gabe Montoya: ”Does Golovkin have any lateral movement? Is he strictly an HBO fighter?”

Steve Kim: ”Yes. He is. I don’t think there’s any other way to say it. He is an HBO fighter. They have absolutely made him a pillar. He’s just like the Game of Thrones. He’s just like Girls. Or he’s just like True Detective. He will only be seen on HBO and the bottom line is HBO made it very clear to me, two things. What happened this weekend (the Adama fight not being shown on HBO) will no happen regardless of where he fights. When he fights it will be televised by HBO they just have top find a bigger venue this time around. And second of all, anytime he fights it will be exclusively on HBO. And that is a fact of life that they are dealing with each other.

Gonzo the Dragonborn aka The New Edgar Allen Poe

He has a stipulation in his CONTRACT WITH HBO that he can fight abroad once a year. Hence why he fought Ishida and Adama in Monaco. I I explained this to you already. The only reason HBO didn’t broadcast his last fight was because of logistical problems. All his fights, regardless which country they’re staged, are going to be on HBO from now on providing it’s possible to do so.

Triple Golovkin’s manager yesterday

Managing Director of K2 Promotions Tom Loeffler, who handles Golovkin, had this to say on the matter, via Boxing Scene’s Jake Donovan:

“It’s well known that Gennady Golovkin – when he fights in the United States – is under exclusive contract with HBO. Lara is with Golden Boy and fights on Showtime. So while he is a great fighter for whom we have a tremendous amount of respect, the bottom line is that HBO is our biggest strategic partner and it’s up to his promoter to get him accepted by HBO.

“The strange thing is that his name really never came up. His insistence took us by surprise. It’s not that Gennady doesn’t want to fight him – he’ll fight anyone and continues to prove that. But we were looking at fighters who we know can and will fight on HBO.”

That and rasp on Floyd’s stinky little rat bollocks like an asthmatic catfish 24/7/365. ROFL. As I’ve explained to you numerous times in the past, this is why nobody takes you seriously.

Lara, the foreigner fight an American in the US, was robbed of a victory against Vanes. No it wasn’t an outrageous robbery like when he was robbed against Williams, again when he was stitched up over in the US against an American, but he still clearly deserved to win regardless if it wasn’t by much. It was a close but clear win and most people who witnessed it, not just me, agreed with that. Comprende?

As for the rest of the bollocks you typed.. Stop spinning. You’re not fooling anyone least of all me. All you’re doing is applying lashings of negative spin on Lara to minimize his achievements and the threat he presents to the fighter you spend the vast majority of the disturbing amount of time you spend on here tonguing the @nus of. It’s not going to wash.

As I’ve explained already Lara is not only clearly a better fighter than all of Floyd’s opponents I listed, is more deserving he’s also got a much better resume than they did at the weight they fought Floyd at, not when they were in their primes. I understand you’re terrified of Floyd stepping in there with legitimate prime threats who stand a chance of beating him and I don’t have a problem with that. Just be honest about it instead of concocting excuse after excuse. I’d probably would be really insecure about my favourite fighter losing to if I was a desperately insecure no social life Internet nerd who derives their self-worth through living vicariously through other’s achievements, too.

If being weight drained has NO adverse effect on a boxers performance, why did DLH appear as dead man walking when he was made to quit against Pacquiao? Why did Pacquiao insist on it to fight Cotto and Floyd to fight Canelo. Two pounds means nothing to a person who’s never worked out in their life much less, someone who’s never boxed. More than just head games are the primary reason for it.

WHO cares what you LOOK like at the weigh in??? You don’t Fight at the weigh in. You Fight the day AFTER the weigh in. …and being drained is a convenient excuse for LOSERS. Hopkins drained himself for 10 YEARS and kept WINNING. Roy Jones Jr. drained himself from HW back to LHW and still WON. Ricky Hatton drained himself for most of his career and WON a lot. Mikey Garcia is draining himself and he keeps WINNING. SO being drained is LESS important than SKILL level. Canelo would have beaten Austin Trout again on the night he beat Floyd but he wasn’t facing Austin Trout. ..Inexperience at the Top level was Canelo’s problem more than weight was. He hadn’t learned to take something OFF some of his punches yet to increase SPEED and then add something back ON for SHOCK value. …You can’t get TOO predictable vs. Floyd and you have to throw mainly for speed not power. Power shots rarely hit Floyd. He’s the GREATEST Defender vs Power shots in the ENTIRE History of Compubox….Stick to your jab and then sprinkle your power shots IN. I wouldn’t even throw any power shots until the last half of the Fight where he thinks he’s already got me figured out. Thats when you have the BEST opportunity to SHOCK him with something NEW.

Canelo showed up and did everything right BUT, the problem is that he fought Floyd “ALL TIME GREAT” Mayweather, and his plans were neutralized! TRUTH! WORD!

Posted February 14, 2014 3:09 am 


TARK

Of course you don’t remember Canelo’s effort… He didn’t show up… If he fought as well as the scorecards had him doing it would have been a blockbuster fight.

But he phoned it in… He was out of the office… He didn’t care… He didn’t try… He’s got 12 million dollars for doing nothing but stand there taking an occasional punch and posing. I don’t know why he wore gloves; I guess his hands were cold. And Lara is the best 154-pounder. Charlo is the next best.

And if guys like Pacauiao, Lara, or Garcia fought Floyd they’d give him all he can handle… He would find their speed, power, and skill difficult to deal with. But Floyd is chicken and won’t fight them.

And as far as Fake TARK goes… Joe Calzaghe never fought a real good fighter in his life… He ducked every opportunity to fight a prime great… Ward would box his ears off without even trying.

i barely recall Canelo’s effort. i was too impressed with Floyd’s. he seems to grow in size and stature whenever he’s in these threatening situations. he becomes and fights like the bigger fighter even when he’s the smaller fighter on the scale. you need to watch that fight again. the story wasn’t Canelo’s inexperience but Mayweather’s sustained formidability beyond his natural fighting weight. he still can’t be bullied or outsmarted or outboxed. we’ve seen it three times already v. the presumed best 154lbr available with the same result. Mayweather’s “0” simply becomes more prominent. you can quibble over degrees of odds that might favor other welters but in terms of the matchup? Khan has range, speed, and power that Floyd hasn’t faced since DLH. much more intriguing than watching Floyd toy with 140lbrs or green and overmatched 147lbrs.

get over it

Tark what you fail to realize is Floyd makes the best look easy like they have no skills. The weight wasn’t a factor for Canelo Floyd is just that great moron. Canelo was 152 a the weight in and most likely ballooned the hell up after the weight in. Canelo was undefeated and KOed just about everyone he faced he just got Schooled like all the rest Floyd has fought. Prime example I bet no one else beats Canelo So Maidana or Kahn it don’t matter they both get they ass handed to them along with anyone else. Danny Garcia is not ready neither is Thurman or Shawn Porter. Manny and Bradley will face off with Marquez waiting on the winner of that. So who does that leave?

Floyd beat a weight drained Canelo who was fighting to make his 12 million and not spending anything on sparring partners… I wasn’t impressed with Canelo’s effort or the way he looked at the weighin… I wasn’t the only one who noticed he was parched at the weighin… Andre Ward made no bones about Canelo’s condition.

All the fighters I mentioned would do 10 times better than Khan against Floyd… Khan is for crap… Khan would NEVER fight any of those guys because they would ALL kill him without remorse… Khan is another Victor Ortiz looking to happen.

TARK, you didn’t name a single welter that would possibly be favored v. Floyd or stood a better chance than Khan. Garcia and Mathysse are comfortably established at 140lbs and it’s not as if Danny’s recent matchmaking can be described as ambitious. Thurman would be good but he’s no more ready to face Floyd than Canelo was. what’s the point? Shawn Porter and Kell who? talk about sparring matches?! what network is gonna bother broadcasting that on any day other than Thursday? E-Nuff of the 154lb matchups. Floyd just faced and defeated the best 154lbr. besides, 147lbs is already Floyd’s standing concession in terms of fighting weight. he can barely crack 150lbs. let the 154lbrs sort each other out and leave Floyd out of it. Pacquiao* has a 5″ reach disadvantage, no jab, a porous defense, and fatally-predictable offense. his attempt at outboxing Marquez in III only exposed the glaring flaws in Manny’s* boxing ability. what can he possible do better v. Floyd? . . . Utterly Delusional.

Te Tumbo… Any ranked welterweight is a better matchup for Floyd than pathetic punching bag Amir Khan — a guy who refuses to fight a world-class opponent — since Danny Garcia lit him up like a Christmas tree and had Amir turning his back and not only running — but sprinting away. I’ve never seen that before.

Danny Garcia and Lucas Matthysse would jump on the fight and they’d be 10 times better than Khan, who can’t even beat lightweights.

Shawn Porter… Kell Brook… Manny Pacquiao… Keith Thurman and many other WW’s would kill Khan, and be an acceptable fight for Floyd… At 154 you have Erislandy Lara and Jermall Charlo.

Part of the way Hagler makes his living now days is hyping stinky fights on talk shows.. Why else would he ever say Mayweather-Khan is a “great fight???”

Hagler either has no interest in Boxing and doesn’t fallow it, or is just lying through his teeth for the sake of British promoters, who want to stage the fight as a viable contest. Hagler is pushing to get the fight done in England — where it’s going to be held anyway. It makes no sense to put that fight here … it’s a super easy sparring session.

Hatton makes his living promoting fights so what’s he going to say? That it’s a lousy matchup?

who gives a sh@t about the politics of Floyd’s probable choice? Khan is the is the most intriguing of the possible remaining matchups at welter. he’s got range, speed, and power that Floyd hasn’t faced since DLH. you boys are absolutely delusional to think Pacquiao* poses any serious threat to Floyd. in fact, how could any smaller opponent with a 5″ reach disadvantage possibly be favored v. Floyd!? it would be another Maidana v. Broner or B-Hops v. Trinidud or DLH v. Gatti or Mayweather v. Gatti(?!), but Worse. none of the defeated fighters went into their bouts with a chin as severely-dented as Pacquiao* and only Gatti faced the actual Mayweather and he took a shellacking. not unlike what Pacquiao* would experience v. a still-prime Mayweather who would exploit Pacquiao’s* lack of a jab, porous defense, and spastic but predictable footwork to repeatedly tee-off on Pacquiao* for as long as he can take it. if a 39-year-old Marquez had Pacquiao’s* rhythm down-pat, which he publicly asserted beFore he KO’d Pacquiao*, what do you think Mayweather will do with the same opportunity? win in an anticlimactic and lopsided mismatch.

Fight says… “Ali, Hagler and the rest didn’t duck.” GTFOOH

What was Ali doing fighting fighting unranked Leon Spinks (6-0-1) when Larry Holmes was the world’s best heavyweight??? … Holmes won the stripped title and Ali still wouldn’t face him … Ali finally fought Holmes years later — because Ali was broke… and because Ali had no title to lose… and because the fight no longer meant a damned thing.

Why didn’t Hagler fight Mike McCallum or Michael Nunn when he was trying to force a rematch with Ray Leonard??? … Hagler retired at 32 rather than, “embarrass myself fighting these young guys.”

Maybe Floyd doesn’t want to get embarrassed either. He’ll be 37 when he smashes the ripest of cherries. That’s 5 years older than Hagler when Marvin fought his last fight and got beat.

Titles in divisions is LESSER than beating the BEST of the BEST which is found on the Top 10 P4P list. Manny agrees with ME on that as he EASILY WON titles in 8 divisions but when he tried to beat 2 Top 10 P4P Fighters in a row he got beat and knocked the f.u.c.k OUT.

The article states what many if not most have known of Floyd for years, he’s been a cherry picking, fighting has-beens and past their prime fighters as well as catchweight, in the hopes the fans who have made him rich think he’s a great fighter. But nothing could be further from the truth. Floyd’s a great fighter in terms of SKILL…but…..he is NOT a great fighter in terms of opponents he has fought, especially lately. Floyd has NO career defining fight because he has intentionally side-stepped every worth while opportunity to have done so. Ortiz was not a career defining fight and neither was Guerrero. Where are they today?? Ortiz just got KO’d a week ago and this is what Floyd wants fans to believe make him “great?” We know better! What has he done lately.

Floyd Mayweather Jr already have gambled his legacy and will be rememberd as “Greedy Boy”. This boxer is boxing history’s biggest prima donna ever and never before there have exsisted one either!.

Floyd Mayweather jr is mabey a gifted skilled boxer who have won many nice fights but they are hardly rememble and fun to watch withc his safe boxing and ego showing. Mayweather Jr have never fought in a warior match at all and his decision to at all cost cherry pick the easiest but most earning fight he can get doesen’t help him either.

Floyd Mayweather Jr is mabey undefeated BUT once again what is that presius “0” worth on the paper when you avoid the more thretning match picks and talk trash about those fighters.

Does a great champion says things over and over again like “I’m the best”, “He is not worthy of fighting me”, or “His PPV is not as good as mine”, “I will retire, unless there is great money” etc-etc.
Thus all this sound great? NO-NO-NO it sounds like a pretty boy in wrong sport. he should have been a model or something, NOT a boxer.

Floyd Mayweather Jr is so protected by his father and uncles these days that it is scary and naming yourself Floyd “Money” sure gives you what is the most important thing in life.
# Floyd Mayweather jr only fight for the moneys and nothing else like legacy or belts.
# He don’t fight for the world championship titles any longer and haven’t cared for them for years as he is the only boxer ever in history to act and get away with it.
# He don’t fight for his fans either as he have so many times not cared for fighting the opponents they wished for and if they are on a promotor team he doesen’t like, (Top Rank, Dopn King, Sutherland) he cries that he don’t want to fight then.
# He refuses to fight against opponents that is mandatory, only fights opponents he want’s

Seriusly I’m have it with this clown for a long time now and I’m so tired of his bulls#it acting and hopless money image. He is not a peoples champion and never was and never will be. He will never be spoken about as a great boxer threw history, just a good gifted one, thats it. The day he retires, the better becouse NEVER have there been such a bad taste of a top boxer playing around and embarrasing the sport of boxing like this.

Tallent is not all from a boxer to be great regardless of good fights on the paper, its just a paper in the end but how many will talk about those fights in the long end?

I never hear people talk about any of his fights, just all his clown acts. The only ones I hear is his fight with Oscar De la Hoya or 2nd fight with Jose Luis Castillo, or his fight with Carlos Hernandez, the man who droped Mayweather Jr first time. Why? becouse many people gave the fight to his opponents, thats all.

But then lets not also forget that Floyd was under HBO and Kostya was contracted to Showtime. Floyd has many fights against HOF fighters, top 10 ranked fighters and fighters ranked on the mythical P4P list. His resume speaks for itself. If you feel he ducked Pac thats all fine but the many questions that must be asked that are constantly ignored are the excuses team Pac and company came up with on why the fight can’t be made. Yes they both of come out with excuses but Pac has come out with just a few more than Floyd has. You also have to bring Arum in the mix who is the main culprit as to why this fight hasn’t been made. Pac has also ducked some fighters. One being Guzman. This after he was what Guzman did to Augapito Sanchez. Sanchez went life and death with Sanchez and was looking for a way out of the fight. Guzman handled Sanchez with ease and walked straight through him. When Pac saw this he wanted nothing to do with Guzman.

Eric what double standard do I have since you are referring to me since I am the one saying there is always a double standard when it comes to Floyd? Hold him on the same level as every other fighter and there will be no double standard.

Im telling the truth. Lara wasn’t robbed. Just because you say so doesn’t make it true. You are not the almighty of boxing. So what Lara went life and death with Angulo before landing that combination at the end. If that didn’t happen Lara was on his way out by KO. So he beat Trout, big deal. Trout only knows how to fight 1 way and that is counter punching. He doesn’t know how to take the lead in a fight. Molina won that belt in a non fight against Ishe. So what. Molina is still garbage and is John Ruiz 2.0. Lara should of lost the fight to Molina. I already said he was robbed against Williams. And now he is not more deserving. He is about on par with all of them. And then not to mention Floyd has already said he is going back to welter because he is not a true Jr Middle. So really there is no point in talking about the fight. And who is gonna buy the fight? Nobody pays to see a Lara fight. Nobody comes to the cuban fights. Sorry that is the sad truth. Unless of course they fight in Miami

I find it amusing how some on here blame others of having double standards when infact they also have double standards.

It’s the whole calling the kettle black scenario.
To funny.

Boxing historians and boxing fan’s that are not bias, in the future will tell a story about floydcthat will resemble what both side claim now.

All boxing fans are right.

Floyd is a great boxer.

And floyd is a ducker and has avoided many fighters all togather and some in their primes.

To be exact, floyd nutt warmers and floyd haters are both right.

Howver, the truth will be somewhere in the middle slightly leaning more towards the haters will be the conclusion with knowledgable boxing fans.

Stop spinning son. It ain’t gonna wash.

Lara was robbed against Vanes. He was winning that fight no ifs or buts (see what I did there?)
Lara whooped Trout like he was a feeble old lady. Easy peasy. Canelo went life-and-death with Trout. ROFL.
Lara whooped Paul Williams.
Got a draw against the current IBF 154 champ Molina.
And stopped Angulo even though he’d been stitched up beforehand with all that underhand bull crap to swing things in Angulo’s favour.

Stop making excuses and putting needles obstacles in the way of a Lara fight. No need to be scurred now. Floyd is the best, right? ROFL. Lara is much more deserving than Khan, Canelo, Ortiz, Guerrero, light-weight Marquez and you know it. ROFL.

And don’t try to score cheap points of your daddy.. I know Floyd is the lineal champion. It’s you clowns that need reminded of that when people ask for him to defend it against 154 pounders or anyone who can get down to the weight to compete in that division. LMFAO.

Floyd’s legacy was tarnished before he began ducking Pacquiao (southpaw). His legacy started eroding once he passed by Kostya Tszyu at 140 in favor of Gatti, continuing as he cherry picked the 147 division while ducking Williams, Cotto, Margarito and Clottey. Through the 130-135 lb divisions he sought out the best with the exception of Casamayor (southpaw). Since 140 and above he’s sought out safe opponents.

That was no robbery. That was a very close fight. One that I still had Vanes winning at the time of the stoppage though if it would of went the route I believe Lara would of won since he was winning the late rounds. And to say they both have straps. Floyd is the Lineal Champ at Jr Middle. He does not just have a strap, he has the championship belt. Molina really isn’t that good of a fighter. He fights like a new version of John Ruiz. I believe Molina is about to lost that title that he holds to the Charlo brother also. The only robbery Lara was apart of was the Williams fight.

Gonzo the Dragonborn aka The New Edgar Allen Poe

A draw with Vanes? That was a robbery. Most people thought Lara had been stitched up yet again. Even dead-eyed zombie mannequin Kellerman said he thought Lara won during the post-fight interview. ROFL.

Molina was a close fight. Molina’s a good fighter though.

Fact is Lara is one of the most risky fights out there for Floyd and one the fans would love to see.

Gonzo the Dragonborn aka The New Edgar Allen Poe

I know Lara has an interim title, hence why I said strap. And Khan should be 1-3 in his last 4 fights ROFL. He’s been brutally KO’d twice now, and hurt and dropped on numerous other occasions, some of which by cotton bud fisted part-time pastry chefs and alcoholic street vendors. Julio Diaz’s shot ghost should’ve got the decision against him. And even worse, he dropped him on his ass and hurt him seemingly everytime his glove grazed past his disgustingly feeble old lady glass mandible.

That’s what boxing is supposed to be about.- the best in each division squaring off against each other. Floyd vs Lara, Triple Golovkin vs Martinez. Then we can see Floyd vs the next best most deserving and logical challenger at 154, or if he decides to move back down to 147, the next best and most deserving challenger there. Then Golovkin vs Sturm. And hopefully after that the networks and promoters will have come to their senses and put and end to their petty feud and we can see Golovkin vs Peter Chocolate for all the marbles. Then we can see Golovkin move up to 168, and by then he’ll be one of the biggest most marketable stars in the entire sport, and take on Ward on neutral soil in somewhere like Almaty, Kazakhstan, with a Kazakh ref so Ward can’t get away any of his dirty tactics and all that excessive illegal holding crap that is such a key ingredient of his style, and no corrupt judges to fill out all their scorecards lomg before the night of the fight. Perfect!

Lara, the same Lara that had a draw with Vanes and should of been beaten by Molina. lol. Thats funny. Not to mention he is has an interim title.

I wouldn’t mind Porter getting a shot. But he has a mandatory fight that he has to do or his belt will be stripped. But I have no problem with him getting it and he may make it more competitive but its hard for me to get the first fight with Diaz out of my head.

Gonzo the Dragonborn aka The New Edgar Allen Poe

Edmund Lara is one of the most logical and deserving candidates for a fight against Floyd. The both..

A. They each hold straps in the same division.
B. Share the same management.
3. Fight under the same promotional outfit.
4. Fight on the same TV network.
5. It’s a fight the boxing fraternity and fans would love to see happen.
And
5. Lara has recently called Floyd out, which predictably fell on deaf ears.

The fight would be a piece of pi-ss to make and it would afford Floyd with the opportunity to silence some of his detractors regarding his penchant for feasting exclusively on a diet of cherry-picked fossilized toothless old former greats and legitimate threats and C grade minimal risk hype jobs and media creations. Lara is genuine legitimate threat and he’s slick and packs a decent whack on him too. Fc-uk all the excuses as to why the fight can’t or shouldn’t happen.. step up to the plate against the slick black Cuban, Floyd. We all know many problems the slick white style gave you, let’s see if you fare any better against the slick black Cuban style instead.

Peej forget who deserve it, or paulie deserve it more, with a win over maidana, and didn’t paulie lose to khan? Not sure. think who has a belt is also to be consider because they fought the better guys to claim that spot. Shawn porter 147 belt holder deserve a shot too, I belt you he give a better action fight than too short maidana a cant touch floyd fight all night. Ho – hum.Floyd

Funny how folks always constantly say Floyd has made excuses but then completely ignore the excuses Pac and company has come up with. Always a double standard for Floyd. And what is also funny is the simple fact that Roach has been on record saying they want to fight everybody Floyd has fought. lol.

Khan is higher on the totem pole than Miadana. Miadana is a gatekeeper who slammed the gate down on Broner thats it. Miadana was forced to step aside hold the gate open for Khan smile and welcome him. Khan is a Olympic medalist. As far as someone deserving a fight with Floyd outside of Cotto Floyd has been fighting a bunch of nobodies anyway so whats the difference. Khans in a class with Ortiz, Guerrero and Canelo so really whats the difference.

Garcia said he is not looking for a Floyd fight. So no matter how much we all say he deserves it, he is not wanting it at the current moment.

Unfortunately, Floyd knows all too well, that once the history books are opened, people won’t care 10, 15, 20 years from now that he cherry picked his opponents, or that he didn’t fight the best of the best.

Floyd should send his shoes to Khan, for Khan to clean. If Khan has cleaned them nicely enough, Floyd should say “ok, I’ll put you on the undercard. Now cook my dinner.”

The thing with Maidana is the fact that he has won 5 fights in a row against decent comp at welter and he has a title. That is what makes him a good opponent. Unfortunately his speed will just make him bait for Floyd. But still he deserves the fight more than Khan. There are 3 fighters that deserve a fight and that is Garcia who already said he is not looking for a fight with Floyd, Maidana and the one that is heads and shoulder above everybody is Bradley.

Posted February 13, 2014 1:18 pm 


james

Im not quite sure who maidana has beat that is world class that makes him a world class welterweight and if he was even mentioned for a Floyd fight before Broner it wouldve been a complete farce and laughed at by everyone, Now that he has beaten an overhyoed lightweight who hadnt betaen anyone but Paulie, in a fight he looked terrible in and it was questionable whether he shouldve got the decision as Paulie outworked him on the night as well and is a fairy puncher, I like Paulie but he is not a toop class fighter and has been well past his best for years so who exactly has maidana beat? Khan beat him fairly easily barring 10 and 11, Alexander beat him easily and so did Kotelnik. Yet another poor article on ESB for me.

Floyd has fought many HOF fighters, top 10 ranked fighters and fighters that where in the mythical P4P rankings. If you say he is a cherry picker then you also have to agree that any other great fighter from the same era was also a cherry picker. Floyd is the greatest fighter of his generation. Some of the fighters that he has fought have gone on the become the linear champion in a weight class or have gone on to win other titles. His resume speaks for itself.

Floyd didn’t fight the Pac Man. That’s a big knock to any legacy he’s got.

I disagree. His reputation is set in stone. He will forever be remembered biggest cherry picking serial ducker fraud to lace a pair of gloves up . And despite him serving a “17 year long tenure at the top of the sport” and him being “the face of boxing who every fighter wants a piece of his sweepstakes”, he’ll also he remembered for never having fought a great fighter that in their prime.

Floyd has missed the boat Heredias ko of Pac robbed Floyd of any chance to be amongst the greats of boxing history. No gut no glory that will be Floyds legacy.

Posted February 13, 2014 12:50 pm

Like he said, if Arum is out of the picture then the fight can get made. Until then folks should stop talking about it. Pac and company have come out with excuses why the fight didn’t get made and so has Floyd. If Arum is out of the picture and Floyd then comes up with an excuse then we can say there is a problem. But the simple fact that the last time the fight couldn’t be made was because a stadium needed to be built is an issue. Arum needs to remain out of the negotiations and Roach is on record saying he sees no reason why Arum wouldn’t let that happen.

Floyd hasn’t got long left in the game. Floyd could do his ‘legacy’ the power of good by facing Manny.

Floyd has missed out on nothing. If that is how you feel then you can say the same thing about Pac not facing Floyd. They have both come up with excuses. Facing GGG is not the answer. First GGG is a middleweight. He is too big. There is no proof he can make 154. Heck he has just been called out by Lara yet there has been no response.

Posted February 13, 2014 12:20 pm 


Mr gav

Floyd’s legacy will be in tact but you could never compare him to the all time greats like Lenard for example. Floyd will remain unbeaten but he has allready missed out by not fighting PAC man, he has a chance to redeem himself if he fights GGG. But mayweather will be more remembered for his money making skills rather than his boxing legacy

It’s only two and half months before fight night, that’s not enough time sell Khan to an outraged boxing community. It has to be Maidana unless Floyd shocks everyone and picks Porter or somebody else.

Legacy of getting super rich off BS talk and safe fights is set. I give him props, but he makes a fool out of all of us when we buy the PPV. A lot of it has to do with the opponent for sure, but FFS, I feel dumb after paying $60 for a stupid undercard and boring one sided beatdown of an overated, has been, hype job, under weight, over weight, or combo of it all. He def got the Money making formula.

Posted February 13, 2014 11:19 am

Floyd will be lowering himself if he fights the desperate, begging Khan. Floyd and the TV network can generate as much revenue, and keep their self respect, by giving Maidana the shot. I’ll be amazed if Khan gets the fight, he’s inactive and semi-retired and has looked terrible since getting spanked by Danny Garcia. But, we shall see what happens.
