Floyd’s apologists can try to distract with nonsense, all they like… But the bottom dollar line is that a REAL ATG champ who’s not scared of Manny, would have just shut Manny’s fans up over 4 years ago… PED’s or not!! Just like Marquez tried to repeatedly, and finally did. Not just let his legacy dissolve away under ever mounting accusations of fearfully ducking Manny like Floyd. Therein lies the truth, all else is Floyd’s and his fans’ con-jobPosted February 24, 2014 5:11 pm

“Just because Roach does not know what’s in the shakes does” constitute plausible deniability. he’s covering his own a$$ just in case something illegal is discovered. Roach’s established alibi: “I don’t know and I’ve always said so”. Face It: either Team Punkuiao* feared facing Floyd (which I’ve always assumed) or something illegal Was going on. those remain the only two credible explanations for Pacquiao* ever avoiding Mayweather over harmless and MUTUALLY-Applied testing.Posted February 23, 2014 6:06 pm

Of course Tyson would say that….he and PAC are very alike in heaps of ways. U very well can’t b named fighter of the decade if u missed 2.5/3yrs of that decade now can u? Manny also features on knockout of the decade…..Posted February 23, 2014 5:18 pm
Pac is a great fighter, and so is Mayweather. Most say Mayweather is the best. I agree with what most say, in this case.Posted February 23, 2014 5:13 pm
pacman is done. end of.Posted February 23, 2014 5:10 pm
who the best is, is a subjective and debatable view and opinion. everyone has their own views on it some get spoon fed garbage like “floyds the best” and they buy it. best is measured by accomplishments in the ring. the most accomplished fighter in boxing today is pac thats why he was given fighter of the decade and why people like mike tyson call pac the most sensational fighter in boxing right now.Posted February 23, 2014 5:08 pm
You can say that Pac’s fought better fighters, but the fact still remains that the majority of expert’s as well as fighters say that Mayweather is the better fighter. It may feel good to be in the minority, but in this case, all that does is make you wrong.Posted February 23, 2014 5:06 pm
pacs definitely fought better fighters and 90% does far better and provides much more entertainment when pac has faced same opponents as floyd. u can say whatever excuses u want but these are the facts and recorded results of the fight. oscar, hatton, and cotto pac did way better against. pac even fought margarito. then u add morales, barrera , and beating bradley for me its obviously not even debateable. between pac and floyd its pac all day son. floyd has not accomplished half of what pac hasPosted February 23, 2014 5:02 pm
Some have a passion for not recognizing the best as just that. Mayweather may have fought less than great fighters, but he’s still the best in the sport at age 36. That’s pretty damn good in my book, cause all fighters have my respect.Posted February 23, 2014 5:02 pm
floyd takes long enough breaks to cycle properly. floyd also has had drama to deal with in regards peds and sweeping it under the rug. guerrero is utter garbage, multiloss multi beat down cotto jacked up by pac, canelo didnt have stamina to fight because he was forced to an unprecedented 152lbs catchweight in a 154 lbs title fight its beyind sad and oathetic floyd felt they had to handicap a 23 year old kid. floyds res is weak filled with garbage like guerrero and ortiz post retired oscar washed up mosely garbage baldomir past it ring worn gatti and zab judah. could say he lost to castillo dropped by judah. 3 best opponents castillo, canelo, jmm not very beastly at allPosted February 23, 2014 4:55 pm

Nutritionists? LMAO sure buddy !!! These are the biggest PED peddlers the sport has ever seen.
Funny how you pactards cherry pick words and twist it to your favor. That is called DENIAL.
Not only did Roach question Ariza’s shakes but he flat out said he is shady. Roach also accused Fortune of PED use and distribution, this is fact.
I dare you to go to youtube right now and look up Justine Fortune PEDs.
Straight from the horses mouth Justine Fortune says ” If you’re top 10 anything you’re either on PEDs, been on PEDs or thinking about getting on PEDs” and ” If you’re stupid enough to get caught it’s your own fault”

And as for 09. He was good in 2010 when he beat margo. Floyd on radio admitted he didn’t want any part of margo as he was to dangerous. OUT OF THE HORSES MOUTHPosted February 23, 2014 5:44 am
He was earning 35 against cotto why take 40 mill from a guy who is ranked lower p4p than you? Exactly easy to say now. Manny was the best fighter on the planet and was not even offered 50/50 you poor dumb floyd cum drinker peasent!Posted February 23, 2014 5:43 am
Azzboy what fighter besides Manny turns down Floyd? Nutthugger he walked away now he wants the fight proves he is kicking himself in the ass. And he is 70 million in back taxes he is getting 20 million to fight Bradley who gives he will have to endorse the whole check to Uncle Sam. Manny is a wash he hasnr beat anyone credible since 09.Posted February 23, 2014 5:31 am
Styles make fights so saying may beat Marquez and PAC was caught. WHO CARES. Because one fighter beats another doesn’t mean that they best him. Plain stupidPosted February 23, 2014 4:40 am
Poor pactard: if you think the 20-30 mill he is getting paid for the Bradley fight isn’t a good pay day your a dumb man. The lottery means nothing for PAC he gets big pay days anyway. How can you say he is begging still he has a fight you fool. Khan is on a different level because he has never made it to begin with.Posted February 23, 2014 4:36 am

He’s fighter of the decade. It doesn’t matter what you say. Floyd might never win that award. You say 2 from 3 I say he lost 2 out of his last 18. Winning is winning and losing is losing. The KO loss doesn’t define anything. Lennox Lewis was KO d bad but redeemed, PAC gets his shot this year to.Posted February 23, 2014 4:33 am
Fck Manny he is desperate just like Kahn both are crying to win the lottery, Manny blew his shot in 09 when he didn’t want to take the blood test old juiced up bastard shild. Kahn is a joke so Floyd is listening to the public and side stepping his worthless ass, I say fight Maidana on May 3Posted February 23, 2014 4:21 am
Azzbox who are the best fighters out there that Floyd is not fighting? Manny l is far from the best or even considered after his 2 losses out of 3 fight not to mention a humiliating KO by a guy Floyd schooled like a child. Manny needs to get past Bradley first he has a lot of catching up to do. And Kahn thinks Floyd is avoiding him? He got out to sleep by Garcia and is practically begging for the fight no dignity at all.Posted February 23, 2014 4:17 am
BOO YAHPosted February 23, 2014 3:14 am

I am just going by what he said. I never said I bought it and clearly said it doesn’t make it right. But his career before that speaks for itself. You can say people took them but until they come up dirty you can’t say they are. But Margachito is a proven cheat. No ifs and or buys and he did it by putting bricks in his gloves. And once he was found out he was never the same. So there for it will assume he was cheating most his career and should of been banned for life.Posted February 22, 2014 10:08 pm

did u leave out the most important fact that pac never failed a test?
i mean floyds got a bit of a shadyness when it comes to peds himselfPosted February 22, 2014 9:02 pm
Floyd Mayweather is a gifted boxer, but it’s also true that he’s not a compelling fighter. Floyd should be fighting Manny if he’s fighting anyone and that would be good for his standing among many fans. Does he even care about that? Maybe not, but Mayweather has only a few fights left and the fact that he’s using Bob Arum as an excuse not to fight Pacquiao is garbage, as is a Khan bout at this point, when Khan hasn’t earned a shot. Marcos Maidana is slow but tough, he ain’t got a prayer against Floyd, but Floyd doesn’t ko anyone these days, so that’s a 12 round snoozer. If Manny beats Bradley in their rematch, Floyd v Manny should be made for later in 2014. It’s the best fight Floyd can make. Is Floyd really scared of the Pacman or something? Looks like it.Posted February 22, 2014 8:24 pm

PEEJie, you and I have a different opinions, not sure where you coming from regarding “racist”. Because I said you are in Floyd’s rektum? It was supposed to be funny. I could have said you are a nut hugger, same thing. Margarito was an avoided fighter back in the days and Cotto fought him. You are full of excuses as your master is. Williams had lost, so what? He could have given Mayweather a lot of trouble. Mayweather does not only fight unbeaten fighters, he wants to fight Khan or Maidana. He refuses to fight Pac and vacated the 154 title, because for sure he does not want to be in the situation of having to fight Martinez or GGG. I am sorry to say this, and typically would never say so about a boxer, but your Floydie is a coward.Posted February 22, 2014 7:09 pm

PS: If Floyd fights Pac and Martinez (both no longer in their prime), and maybe GGG (he is big, but no bigger than Martinez), beats all of them and become the MW champion, I promise, I will transform into a Floyd follower, build him a shrine and go to Vegas for pilgrimage every year. No worries, you guys can keep your place in his rektum…Posted February 22, 2014 3:49 pm
@ PEEJ and T-Mellow, you are wrong about memory loss. If you remember his fights, it’s because you are living in his rektum, that’s why. The fact that Floyd is unbeaten is because of a) he is a great defensive fighter, b) he cherry picks (studies his opponents and only fights those that he is sure he can beat), and c) because of a) and b). Fact is that he does not have (a) “signature” fight(s). All great fighters had those. Your argument is that he is “too good” to have signature fights. My argument is that he avoids fighters in their prime and some all together. He did fight some in their prime (Corales,Hatton) but avoided many others (Cotto,Williams,Margarito,Pac). His greatness is part reality and part a circus act, an illusion. He can not compare to people like SRR, Duran, Pac, and that he is unbeaten, wtf cares!Posted February 22, 2014 3:36 pm

i’m already on record as saying that Lara isn’t that great because he won’t rematch IBF champ Molina; was fought to a standstill by Vanes; and was a propitious hematoma away from being TKOd by Angulo. Mayweather has already defeated the best 154lbr, which is already more than Lara has been able to do.Posted February 22, 2014 3:06 pm
@Amir Khan – “Before Floyd fight Guerrero, Cotto, Canelo, there were those that were for the fight and those that were against the fight. Real boxing fans knew those were cherrypicked fights from the jump.”
Historically I might agree with you, but more recently, not a chance.
No matter who he picks, someone is going to rubbish them. He could pick Lara and after a Mayweather win, people would point out the D’s on Lara’s record and say “Oh look, he really wasn’t that great… couldn’t even beat Vanes or Molina”. Thurman and Andrade would be labelled inexperienced. Danny Garcia too small (assuming Garcia changes his mind about whether he’d fight Mayweather). Khan and Maidana are soft touches.
“Khan is a b*tch made glass joe. He never deserved the fight and Maidana has looked far more impressive. All Khan has done is lose to top opponents and get wobbled by unworthy ones. Tell Khan to go fight Russell to prove his medal.”
Conveniently forgetting Khan beat Maidana fair and square.Posted February 22, 2014 2:21 pm

Amir Khan: But I can beg more if I have to, I can even shine Floyd’s shoes. Whatever it takes, please Richard.
Richard Schaeffer: But you’re a laughing stock Amir. 2-2 in your last 4 fights and even little Julio Diaz dropped you. Forget it kid, Floyd only fights champs and real contenders.
Amir Khan: Tell me what I have to do to get this fight, I can cook, does Floyd like pasta?
Richard Schaeffer: I think so. But just forget it kid, just make me a cup of tea. Milk and four sugars.
Amir Khan: No, I’m going back into the oxygen tent for a rant on Twitter. Then I might text Bib Arum and beg him to sign me.Posted February 22, 2014 1:37 pm
It seems like Floyd is dealing with personal issues at the moment. However, it’s interesting how Con is now showing his true colors. First he was all respectful to Floyd, and then he starts crying like a baby. Con has proven by his own actions that he doesn’t deserve the fight. And Floyd can fight whomever he chooses.Posted February 22, 2014 1:27 pm

Your argument would work if Floyd didn’t catch mosley coming off a long layoff. If Floyd fought mosley without the long layoff by mosley, your argument would hold weight.

Stop being disingenuous. You act like boxing fans are one homogenous group. Before Floyd fight Guerrero, Cotto, Canelo, there were those that were for the fight and those that were against the fight. Real boxing fans knew those were cherrypicked fights from the jump. Fans of these fighters were the ones who are duped by Floyd.Posted February 22, 2014 12:06 pm
“No matter who Floyd fights it will never be good enough”
Well, there are even more examples, e.g. he took Mosely, not when he was looking downhill, but right after he had bounced back looking unbelievable against Margo; at that time, it was not at all clear that the form won’t last. How do we know it was not an easy cherry-picked fight? Well, go back and listen to the experts; there is an interview by the late Manny Steward, even, from back then saying “I’ll believe it when I see them both in that ring”; many insisted that Floyd will not enter that ring against a true welter. Remember?Posted February 22, 2014 12:03 pm
Cry Baby Khan looks like he is having a nervous breakdown, no joke. His people need to get him to a psychiatrist quickly, he is having a meltdown, a really bad freaking meltdown.

Somebody please get Khan to a psychiatrist though, he has totally crumbled, like a ten month old baby who just had his soft toy companion taken away.Posted February 22, 2014 11:40 am
Exactly. When he fought Cotto his legs where shot and Cotto was done. When he fought Guerrero his legs where no longer shot and he ran. Was scared and would never fight the bigger Canelo. After an easy win Canelo was drained, not ready and wasn’t that good. No matter who Floyd fights it will never be good enough.Posted February 22, 2014 11:35 am
Exactly PeeJ, I remember every single fight and thinking in my head damn he makes quality fighters look amateur and this is why is gets banged on. America’s favorite fighter is the guy who’s fighting Floyd next. Then he wins easily and they become America’s biggest bum. These forums are full of people saying Floyd has never looked this scared, Floyd got dropped in sparring, Floyd will look old over night, Floyd will finally go down and when he doesn’t its just makes everyone’s blood boil to hate him worse.Posted February 22, 2014 11:20 am

You talk about Miguel Cotto, Khan cannot live with even the version of Cotto still fighting today, not with his dodgy defence, he’ll be destroyed. Cotto is an elite fighter, Khan is not.

Baldomir was a champion, and there’s every incentive to fight the champion at your weight class. If Floyd had picked an unknown who is not ranked, with a padded record, then that’s cherry picking. If a guy has a major title, fighting him is not cherry picking. Maidana has a title, has gained a lot of momentum and following, following his win over Broner. Fighting him makes every sense commercially, in boxing terms (WBA title), and for personal reasons due to Floyd’s relationship with Broner. (Vitali Klitchko loved to fight guys who beat his little brother). Cherry picking is what Khan did in his last fight, he fought an unknown and irrelevant opponent as far as elite boxing is concerned, yet he was down a number of times and looked awful. Fighting a champion is not cherry picking. Can Khan live in the ring with Canelo, even at 147? Why hasn’t he rematched Maidana and Prescott, please answer this question Mr Anonymous. Where is his pride, he was knocked out by a journey man in his home town, now not fighting that guy again is dodgy match making and cherry picking, and not a guy fighting known champions for major titles.Posted February 22, 2014 9:14 am

Nice comeback fact check.Posted February 22, 2014 8:48 am
You can’t be a serious boxing fan and in the same breadth attempt to put Guerrero(of all people) on a pedestal. Zab Judah was ok but he certainly was not an elite fighter when he fought Floyd. He lost his fight to Baldomir prior to fighting Floyd. Not exactly the crème de la crème. Baldomir as well was no world beater before fighting Judah, and was on no one’s radar. Baldomir did not keep the belt very long after Judah, which means….he wasn’t elite, he just had a belt. Having a belt and losing it within a year is not what elite fighters do, just ask Ortiz and Guerrero, two has-beens, one who has not fought in nearly a year and the other who just go KO’d after a year and a half off. These are Floyd’s preferred type of opponents. DLH, Cotto and Mosely were well past their prime, anybody knows that and Marquez, well, Floyd decided to fight him at a catch-weight, which he then violates by coming in over the agreed upon weight. Besides, Marquez had never fought at 147 and is not a natural welterweight, everybody saw him lose to Bradley recently. Hatton is probably the only fighter who was closer to his prime aside from Canelo. Regarding Canelo, why would a so called P4P great* need an assist, a crutch if you will, to fight a champion? Not exactly the stuff great or elite fighters do. So yes, Floyd does cherry pick. It’s not necessarily because the opponent lacks some skills, but because he selects opponents whose styles are made to make Floyd appear to look better than he actually is.Posted February 22, 2014 8:45 am
Nice blacker.Posted February 22, 2014 8:38 am
Cherry picking? Ok let’s look at the last 10 opponents. Canelo, Robert Guerrero, Miguel Cotto, Victor Ortiz, Shane Mosley, Marquez, Ricky Hatton, Dela Hoya, Carlos Baldomir and Zab Judah. Most of these guys were champions, former champions or top contenders. How many on the list would Khan have been able to live with in the ring, in their prime. When people talk of cherry picking, they need to look at the facts. Can Khan beat Canelo? Robert Guerrero was a champion and had beat the hell out of Berto. Please look at the facts, Khan has a lot of fights he can take, but has refused to fight anyone other than Floyd. He could’ve fought Devon Alexander when he had a belt, but he pulled out of that fight. Why hasn’t he rematched Maidana all these years, or fight Journey man Prescott who destroyed him in two rounds before his home crowd, if for nothing just to redeem himself. Coming from a guy accusing someone several levels above him of cherry picking, he’s a hypocrite. He looked washed up in his last fight. Floyd will never give him a retirement payday the more he continues to winge.Posted February 22, 2014 8:07 am
Khan couldn’t be more correct. It’s what the boxing world has known, and what has been going on for over 8 years. FLOYD cherry picks.Posted February 22, 2014 7:49 am

down town anth brown
so let me.get this right, khan is pissed off because may weather fked him off after promising him a fight
and khan backed out of the fight with Alexander for this may fight
yet khan moans about may lol… fkin hypocritical idiot…. I’m actually happy he hasn’t got the fight. This ladies and gentlemen is what’s wrong with boxing today. No one wants to build resumes or careers. They only care about the big money fight.
khan has humiliated himself and got what he deservesPosted February 22, 2014 7:14 am
Floyd is scared of Khan speed and quick jabs.Posted February 22, 2014 6:58 am
Khan wouldnt be having this problem if he backed himself and fought Alexander and earned his shot.Posted February 22, 2014 6:49 am
I guess Khan has to do and say whatever he needs to in order to get the fight… but he sounds like a desperate ex-girlfriend who swings from praising to insults in her mood-swinging way to win back the man of her dreams.
That said, the “cherry picker” insult is silly here. If Mayweather picks Khan, heaps of people will say he’s scared of Maidana. If he picks Maidana, heaps will say he’s running from Khan.
What I’d really love is for Mayweather to flip it on everyone and announce some totally different fighter… some guy with more losses than wins who has been KO’ed in his last 5 or something.
I’m actually hoping both Mayweather and Pacquiao lose their upcoming fights (I’ve wished this every time they’ve fought these days). If neither has anywhere else to go, maybe we’ll finally see them fight (with walking sticks like Hopkins-Jones 2).Posted February 22, 2014 6:28 am
Golden Boy can’t reach Khan. I smell a defection. Khan to leave Golden Boy for Top Rank. Only problem, all of Top Rank’s welterweights would destroy Khan inside four rounds, so who would he fight there? Poor Amir. How he wishes he’d fought Alexander last December instead of ducking him and arrogantly thinking he was entitled to fight Floyd. You never earned it bro. You’re getting what you deserve.Posted February 22, 2014 6:11 am
But the fact is Khan does have the handspeed to cause PBF a lot of trouble and Floydy Boy is also not the biggest bamger so this fight would have 12 rounds written all over it. With Khan being as fast as Floyd (but nowhere near as difficult to hit!) it could be an intersting fight if it came off. Lets hope Maidana knocks his block off.Posted February 22, 2014 5:32 am

No need 4 maidana to fight fm to make what 3 million or so? and getting his momentum broken? Big money fights are waiting for Maidana so Maidana needs to be in no rush and he appears in no rush, the one in rush is fm as time is running out slowly……Posted February 22, 2014 12:09 am

However, the boy Maidana is a name now and a champ
Now, give me one reason why Khan deserves the fight more than Maidana?
Maidana is reckless, bang bang style is not very effective aginst FM, especially when maidana has stamina issues (he was tired in the later rounds when fighting broner)
and more so Maidana should not fight fm, Maidana beat broner and now maidana needs to take some time and pick good fights and build his name rather then fight fm now and loose and kill all his hype amd momentum he has got.Posted February 21, 2014 11:31 pm

This is a new low even by Mayweather’s abysmally low standards. I’m still trying to get my head around this. He’s ducking Amir ‘Wet Tissue Paper Chin’ Khan. Khan’s dead right about him cherrypicking slow opponents. He’s been doing it for ages now. It’s just a fact of life that speed causes Mayweather all sorts of problems.
One thing’s for certain. If you’re ducking the likes of Amir Khan, who is 2-2 in his last 4 fights and could so easily be 1-3 if not for some dodgy judging and officiating, then it proves without any shadow of a doubt that you never would’ve fought any of the true greats and ATGs while they were in the midst of the primes. I don’t think even the most devoted Mayweather devotee can mount a serious argument against that either.Posted February 21, 2014 10:34 pm

Ehy doesn’t Khan focus on avenging his losses? That the bigger questionPosted February 21, 2014 9:40 pm
Khans speed didn’t stop him from being knocked out twice by two opponents know where near the level of Mayweather. Khan never deserved to be in the ring with Money from the start. Khan said that Floyd cherry picks opponents that are slow to make him look good. Well his last opponent was Alvarez who is not slow by any means and a much better fighter than Khan. Alvarez was also chosen by the boxing community as the best opponent for Floyd and that is who Floyd picked. Just like Madaina beat out Khan on two other polls as the best opponent for Floyd. Khan only won on one poll and it was because you needed to have a twitter account which Khan has over 2 million followers. He lost fair and square. The boxing community never wanted to see him fight Floyd. In fact Picking Khan was seen as Floyd picking an opponent he knew he could beat easy. So Khan himself fits right into his own allegations of Mayeeather.Posted February 21, 2014 9:39 pm

Khan is a sour loser. You can also check his tweets. It’s time to fight Alexander and maybe if you win, earn you a shot at Floyd in September. If you look at fighters Floyd have fought in the past; most of them were top class class A fighters. Cherry picked class A fighters is good. Khan is a good fighter but hasn’t proven his worth lately. Maidana is much more deserving and is a top class fighter himself. Good for cinco de mayo.Posted February 21, 2014 8:53 pm

Desperate! Desperate! Desperate!!! Mayweather Cherry picks? LMAO! Anyone hear of a Breidis Prescott rematch with Khan as yet? Lol He is trying everything to get this fight. Initially getting down on his knees and sucking up to Floyd, but now trying to disrespect him. A fighter with Khan’s credentials has no business even trying to diss Floyd. He does not deserve the fight and I think the reason Floyd is hesitant is because deep down he knows he will be criticised for taking such a weak opponent when so many more viable options are out there. Khan won the Twitter poll ( which incidently is run by Khans PR machine and his extra large sized family), but more importantly Maidana won absolutely every other legit boxing poll. Floyd face Maidana if it is going to be the choice between these two boxers only. He will make it a more exciting fight.

Khan should just fight kell brook, forget Mayweather, leave goldenboyPosted February 21, 2014 7:33 pm
I disagree with the writer (I use the term loosely). Scraping and bowing won’t get Floyd in the ring. This trash-talking tactic is more likely to motivate him.
Remember how Hatton got Mayweather to agree to a fight? By saying that there was more excitement in his short bout with Castillo than in Mayweather’s whole career. Apparently, once Floyd heard that, he told his manager: “Make the f*&^ing fight!”.
So I think Khan (or whoever advised him to say this) is being quite shrewd. Saying that Floyd is slowing down, and has always avoided fast fighters, is just the sort of thing to motivate him, I think.
That’s not say that Mayweather will definitely fight him if he disrespects him, but I think this kind of trash-talking is more likely to work than fawning sycophancy.
If they’re seen to genuinely dislike each other, it will also help the PPV numbers — which, after safety, is always Floyd’s principal concern.Posted February 21, 2014 7:33 pm

There’s only 1 fighter that’s a threat to the Maytwitter legacy, and he’s been ducking, jukin’, and jivin’ for 4 years now.
And that’s not the say Manny would dominate or win against Floyd, but he sure would put up his biggest challenge to date. I give Manny a very decent shot at beating Floyd. Floyd can’t KO Manny, and he just does enough to win…. on points…Posted February 21, 2014 7:30 pm

Floyd would rip Khan apart – Floyd needs tested by Pacman, Bradley or Danny Garcia – I know none of these fighters are available at the moment but there is nothing out there that will cause Floyd problems. The cherry picking accusation of Floyd is actually a compliment to Floyd as it recognises his skill set and that he is operating at a higher level than elite fighters in the division. The fighters he is accused of cherry picking are top fighters in their own right and would give other fighters in the division serious competition.Posted February 21, 2014 6:59 pm
Ray Ray, You completely miss the point and he is not calling them no good he is simply saying styles make fights and Floyd is picking the style that makes him look the best and easiest to beat.Posted February 21, 2014 6:56 pm
nonetheless, i continue to believe that Khan is a more intriguing matchup for Mayweather. height, range, speed, and power that would require Floyd to engineer a different fight-plan to remain undefeated. otherwise, Mayweather is too big, fast, and strong for Maidana or any other welter to be quite honest and it will show on fight-night and it will be pretty funny to read Floyd-Haters describe Maidana as a “cherry” or “soft-touch” handpicked by Mayweather.Posted February 21, 2014 6:51 pm

it would be interesting to evaluate Khan’s record after facing Ortiz, Cotto, Guerrero, and Canelo in consecutive order. a risky, dangerous, and ambitious list of matchups for Khan that Mayweather makes look like “cherrypicking”. we’ll see what Mayweather does v. a cherry(?) they have in common by the name of Maidana. i don’t anticipate too much trouble for Floyd.Posted February 21, 2014 6:45 pm

Let it be said
Khan is that desparate for a payday that he will say anything – first he was sucking up to Floyd now he is trying to get a reaction by riling Floyd – what an embarrassment!Posted February 21, 2014 6:31 pm
Khan/Mayweather! Let’s get it happening! Khan gonna beat Floyd’s @ss. Too quick, too smooth.Posted February 21, 2014 6:22 pm
Also think this writer clearly doesnt know too much about Khan and he doesnt have to much positive to say about him either tbh when you could say he has beaten a better level of fighter than Maidana, (and he has beaten Maidana) but he is married to an enormously wealthy family and has decent wealth already himself so its not all about money with him.Posted February 21, 2014 6:19 pm
Khan is so deluded he doesn’t realize he’s the worst cherry pick of all…Posted February 21, 2014 6:18 pm
It’s not all about speed…..Floyd is far from slow anyways. Floyd timing is up there with the best. Khan would get schooled anywhere any time. Not many guys can beat World champs, bigger stronger world champs and b called a cherry picker…..if only every1 was good enough 2 cherry pick like that. Calling Floyd a cherry picker is more of a slap in the face 4 his opponents. Guys like Alvarez, Cotto & Madaina isn’t cherry picking. A guy with a glass jaw shouldn’t put Floyds opponents down, Alvarez and cotto would probs end Khans life and a Madaina rematch 4 khan @ this point would b the complete opposite than 1st time around….it’d end in khan being asleep.Posted February 21, 2014 6:17 pm
Whatever you think of Khan and i know some wont be able to see the point because of their hatred for him but he is spot on regarding that point, anyone slow and flat footed is an awful match up and only has a punchers chance against Floyd, which is basically no chance and he is cherry picking to make himself look good but if fans are that stupid then why wouldnt you. They managed to hype Canelo up to 2.2mil PPV buys a when anyone who knew boxing knew it was another mismatch so you cant balme him for doing it. Thats not to say he still doesnt beat quicker fighters with good footwork as he clearly does he is so good but it is a much harder fight for him and doesnt make him look as good.Posted February 21, 2014 6:11 pm
Lets hope that Mayweather does NOT give Khan this fight as he does NOT deserve it whatsoever. You have to earn fights with the champ, Khan is 2-2 in has last 4 fights and the last 2 were very very bad against washed up competition. He needs to prove he deserves the fight with another 4 or 5 wins against top 10 fighters, otherwise he can piss off, he don’t deserve no big payday for doing nothing.Posted February 21, 2014 6:04 pm
