“That’s because Wlad is in the Men’s division taking on the best overall boxing has to offer.”-FALSE. The BEST overall that Boxing has to offer resides on the Top 10 P4P list. Wlad has never faced one of them in his LIFE.

Ariza is a weird guy. He has no filter. It’s like someone turned that part of his brain off.

The funny part to this story is that Justin Fortune was saying the same but now that he is with him, I just read that he feels Floyd has to fight Manny if he wants to call himself the best. Must be listening to Roach and everyone now wants a piece of that paycheck.

The whole thing is a mess from both sides.

alex ariza: floyd mayweather offered manny pacquiao the fight from ESNEWS

Ariza was saying the same thing while he was with Pac.

In addition:

There was a lot that was going on including wanting Pac to leave Arum because GBP thought it would be easier to negotiate with Pac, more would be available for the purse of the fighters since Arum doesn’t get his huge cut and control and so on.

The only thing I would be cautious about and demand if I were Manny in that case, if he were to leave Arum, would be to demand part of the promotional money and not let Floyd be the main promoter. If Arum is out, then Pac should be able to grab some of those rights.

Pacquiao thought the P4P thing was garbage TOO until he took MY challlenge and stopped facing #0 P4P WW’s and took on Top 10 P4P WW’s. Thats when he got out Boxed, ROBBED, and knocked the F out. Now he has to TRY TRY again. …Thats called the difference between facing #0 P4P opponents and Top 10 P4P opponents. Wlad Klitschko knows nothing about that.

What folks don’t talk about is the Russian brothers are very fast for being 6,4? They use to be more acive and hussel all 12 round .now they are taking it easy pinching an holding These are giants and watch the Lenex Louis fight and the brothers for the first time great fight,I had. Hard time believing the younger brother was fight the speed and tireless tempo that this was a heavy weight fight, non stop swinging .very impress as I like Lewis , the brothers are crusing now because there is no challenge, I would bet they still can fight 100% full on non stop swinging if they had a real challenge to face.
Posted March 14, 2014 12:06 am

Wlad is the fast one.

Did you see their documentary? YOUNG WLAD was freakishly fast. I don’t care how Tall he is, how long his reach is, how heavy he is, there is no need for someone to even bother using that in a “for his size” comment because That Man is one of the fastest punchers I’ve ever seen at 200+ pounds. He is faster than fighters much much lower in weight.
He was drilling the heavy bag at amazing speed when he was younger. And in fights, you could see that speed explode on fighters. With him, his speed is noticeable more up close than far away watching a fight because, and this is my guess, his arms are so long so there is an illussion of him not being quite as fast as some of the shorter arm punchers but its just that you get a full visual of his arm.
The latest was that speed bag drill he did. At his age, still impressive regardless of division.

“Defeating someone 20 lbs smaller than you isn’t called being BETTER. Its called being BIGGER. ”

But Boxtra$$wipe, you have repeatedly said that “skills is more important than size and that skills will beat size as long as the person with the size advantage is not more than 20 lbs bigger.” Hmmm, apparently being bigger is more important than having skills. After all YOU just said, “Defeating someone 20 lbs. smaller than you…Its called being Bigger.”

good posts dazani i agree wholeheartedly. boxrec has a decent p4p rAnking system but its irrelevant for many of the reasons dazani has pointed out. either klitschKO woops floyd and ward so at the end if the day thats what it is. p4p is hupothetical and subjective. its not rooted in anything objective its not even proovable at the end of the day there is absolutely no science behind it. its people claiming something they cant begin to prove. wlad, ward, toney, roy jones jr, srr, duran, get KTFO by klitschKO. thats all that matters to this fan. u can garble garbage hypotheticals that if floyd was the size he would be just as awesome. genetics does not work like that. there is no super heavyweight moving like pacman or floyd and there never will be. the whole p4p thing is garbage. its irrelevant. boxy has lost numerous projections trying to go off that and odds

Squared-Circle, there were only two attempts at making the Mayweather vs PAC fight. The first attempt PAC turned it down because of the testing and he’s afraid of needles.

Trying to discredit a man’s accomplishments because he’s not a HW is pretty low. And Wlad nor Vitali won’t among the greatest of HW boxers of all time anyway. They’re just two big men that dominated when the HW division was very weak.
Posted March 13, 2014 11:04 pm

Floyd is great at what he is doing, at what he is capable of doing, but he is not the best overall in boxing. That’s Wlad. That’s what I am saying.

Most HW eras are weak. Even the hyped up names of the past when reviewed without the hype of the time are not as good as some make them out to be. That’s where Popularity comes into play.

There are guys that were good in the sport who were stopped in their tracks by Great fighters. Specifically with the HW division where you are either the best or you are not and you continue on with contender and journeyman status unlike the lower weight divisions where you can go up and down a division and pick up one of the several belts available.

Divisions were created by Boys that couldn’t compete with Men. “P4P” was created as a label for fighters (like SRR) to give him credit for being a great fighter his size with the admittance that he is not the best overall boxer in the game. That was reserved for the Man that held the HW title.

To be the best, you have to fight and beat the best and that is always the HW Champion no matter how one may perceive his talent compared to someone smaller. In the end, who wins in a fight. That’s all that matters.

You can’t compare Floyd and Wladimir… Floyd might be better than anyone ever… He’s beaten five 3-Division World Champions … Ward is probably the best super middleweight ever.

Wladimir is among the top 5 heavyweights all time.

In fact, Louis, Lewis, or Holmes would have a very rough time dealing with Wladimir’s size, strength, height, speed, and the jab that’s he’s got today… His straight right and short left hook have gotten better and better.

The Vitali who fought Adamek could probably beat Wlad. VK’s game was getting better too… He’s was cooler under fire because his chin was so great … and Wlad’s isn’t.

Roy Jones and James Toney were better SMW than Ward is.

And NO, Floyd is not the best. Who was his Duran? Who was his SRL? Who was his Tommy Hearns? etc. etc. etc.

And in the end, WHO WINS A FIGHT BETWEEN WLAD AND FLOYD? That is all that matters to see who is the best.

Again, in ancient greece, like Rome, there was only ONE DIVISION and everyone fought in that division. Why? Because boxing was a sport created for soldiers to train and compete during non-warfare times which was later made into Olympic Sport and Entertainment as a Hero Worship as well as to marry off the Fighter to the best Flower in field.

Think why they only had one division and you know why Wlad is the best today.

Posted March 13, 2014 4:16 pm

Alex Ariza called it before Floyd even gave his explanation. As the polls were still going on, Ariza pointed out that since there is more than one poll, Floyd would most likely look at all the polls from legit sources and see who is winning overall which includes the amount of votes in. Why? Because winning the poll and seeing the amount of votes in, is what will bring him the most money. Ariza’s view was found to be true as Floyd picked Maidana and later gave his explanation which was the same as Ariza’s: I had to look at all the polls.

Wrong again! In reality, BoxRec has Wlad ranked #2 P4P and Ward ranked at #4. Every boxing organization, publication and website has their own P4P rankings and they’re all different. P4P rankings are totally subjective and based on the personal opinions of journalists and analysts, so really don’t mean much at all. Did boxing fans go on and on about hypothetical P4P rankings back in the 60s, 70s, 80, and 90s? Of course not. All fans really cared about was who the HW, MW, WW and LW Champions of the World were at the time. And only diehard fans cared to follow FWs, BWs and SWs.

Posted March 13, 2014 2:01 pm

People hype up fighters to give hope to the division. It’s called Promotion. And the future of the division wasn’t saying much considering its the HW division which has never been a loaded division with extreme talent. Although it has been a hyped up division in the past.

He was good but not that great. But Yes, a Worthy Opponent that should be looked at as a good win for Wlad. Especially considering past eras are highly overrated with the contenders in their eras. Even some Champions.

Actually, you have contenders in later eras that would be Champion in past eras.

People don’t want to admit it because they fall for the nostalgia and the legend status, but certain fighters would get beaten in later eras. And badly.
You can have a top contender in one era beat up a regarded HOF from the past.

The HW division has always been lack-luster as far as the field goes. That includes Ali’s era. The smaller divisions are far more competitive with greater skilled fighters. However, no matter the skill level, size does counter skills when its to far apart

The problem with the first knockdown in the Ruslan vs Bradley fight was the fact that Ruslan pushed Bradley down. You can’t call that a knockdown no matter how hurt the fighter is. Bradley would of probably fell on his own but unfortunately Ruslan pushed him so it couldn’t be counted as a knockdown. The first Pac fight was all Pacs fault for only fighting 30 seconds a round. Do I still think he won yes, was it close, yes, was it a robbery, yes it still was because you can have a close fight and still have a clear winner. Unfortunately Pac didn’t help his cause any by losing the next fight.

Well the one thing that is good against fast fighters is timing. Garcia has great timing and he is not scared to throw in between your combos. That is a fast fighters worse nightmare. Someone who can time them coming in and someone that is not afraid to throw a punch while you are throwing a punch and not just waiting for you to be done with your offense to begin theirs.
Posted March 13, 2014 1:00 pm

This is true: He is willing to throw at the same time you are or just behind your throw because he is confident in his ability to take a clean shot and deliver his own with power still attached even if he is hit by yours.

Everyone who watched PacMan vs. Bradley sober with objective clear eyes, knows it was one of the worst robberies in boxing history. It’s a crying shame that Pac has to fight Bradley again after what should’ve been ruled a UD. Bradley also owes Provodnikov a rematch because the ref failed to give Ruslan credit for the first knockdown. If that round was scored a 10-8 as it should’ve been, the fight would’ve been scored a Draw. Those are two big wins on TB’s record that he really didn’t earn. So, he probably is a little overrated at this point.

If you were Floyd and making the kind of money he is making, have the control over his fights/Money like he has, No Way would you let Arum in on the deal because Arum wants control. You don’t need Arum.

There is so much involved with how much these Promoters really get and they exclude the fighter out of. World Wide profits for example and other sources of generated income that he promoter works out for himself. All this is what is said goes on in boxing that fighters like Floyd found out about and decided to eliminate the middle-man and go and get it all.

It sucks that Pac and Floyd aren’t fighting, that TR and GBP are in a feud, but if you were in Floyd’s position, you would do the same. And if you were Pac, you should do the same and go and collect all that you are worth.

Bradley is with Top Rank. How many times does this have to be talked about until you people get that Floyd does not want to do business with Top Rank nor does Arum want to do business with Floyd if he can’t promote the event and have Floyd under contract which is why he keeps his fights “in-house.”

Bradley himself admitted that a fight with Floyd is doubtful given he was signed with Top Rank and then added with his resigning of Top Rank it was even more unlikely but he was holding out hope that in the future that something could be worked out between TR and Floyd. So he knows the deal and he chose to fight Pac instead of Floyd because the offer was right there.

both klitschkos have the best and most powrfull offenses in the history of heavyweight boxing. wlads arsenal is epic his jab and strait right. u could make a case that he has the best jab in history and the best strait right.

Posted March 13, 2014 4:20 am

Holmes and Liston may have a better Jab than Wlad, however, Wlad’s jab is up there and his straight right is the best. Also, that short left-hook of his is amazing. Only a Prime Joe Louis compares with his short left-hook.

Wlad is still missing the use of an uppercut and body shots. And that’s why I still have Joe Louis as the best overall offensive arsenal HW boxing has scene.

Wlad is sharper with his straight right and Jab but Lewis had more of a well rounded arsenal in use with consistency.

Prime Holyfield should be up there too. The combination attacks were amazing back in the day.

If Mayweather gets past Maidana and Garcia gets past his opponent, then the two should fight in September. Like Maidana, Danny Garcia is clearly earning the shot at Mayweather at 147, unlike Amir Khan.

Looks like Floyd Mayweather, the role model, quality person, richer than rich, great father, husband and a good boxer has possibly turned into a mobster. TMZ has the news. I guess we may not be seeing him ever again if it’s true that he did those things that he’s accused of. I knew long ago this man life was going to take a wrong turn and it was going to be tragic. I hope this just rumors, but something tells me his over size ego, power trip and pride has led him to believe he can do anything within the rules or outside of them. Now, let the real P4P boxing king ( Manny Pacquiao) take over.
Posted March 13, 2014 10:49 am

Mobsters steal things that isn’t there. What Floyd is accused of is taking the law into his own hands like Men used to do when the law wasn’t around or let them down. But since we do have a somewhat working law, that although flawed and does tend to let you down, that is still the First Option one should take before taking the Law (which is the Law of Nature) into your own hands.

O’, and let’s not get carried away given the allegations and life style other boxers have led behind closed doors. Notably, another P4P fighter currently active.

All Danny has to do is keep winning, I am not sure if he is ready to bag at 147, But yes Floyd would be a huge fight to him because the ppvs numbers. I think this is the strategy that’s why they had him on the undercard so much the same way they did Canelo. Garcia is a solid fighter with talent but Floyd would whop his ass. His boxing IQ and stamina is insane is runs 12 miles a day at 37ys old. No one can match him and if Manny ever gets the balls to tell his jew Master to step aside and test his blood he will get his ass handed to him as well, so we can shut the pactards up once and for all…

Hec dog the only thing Manny is taking over is debt hell his whole Bradley purse will go to the IRS. Hell and TMZ when can you believe anything they say? This thing with Floyd will go away he will pay these guys a few dollars and you wont hear anything else about it hell that’s all they want anyway. All this kidnapped and almost killed crap yet there was no charges filled by the authorities is a joke. And Manny is a wash he will be juiced up that is the only way he can win…

That was Vitali after he outboxed Lewis and forced him into retirement and now it’s King Wlad. 3 losses is still fewer than Ali, Tyson, Holy, Foreman, Frazier, etc. and his amazing record and number of title defenses makes Lewis and most of those guys look like a short term part-time fighters.

Actually, it took more than two years for Ward to respond to 3G. Why the hesitation? I watched a sit down interview with both 3G and Ward starring at each other across a conference table. 3G said, “I definitely want to fight you in the future.” Ward responded by with pure silence. And now to save face, Ward makes some vids making it sound like he actually wants the fight, which is of course is total B.S. He was called out in person man-to-man, face-to-face and cowered down like a scared teenager. Maybe 3G should pull a Floyd a demand a catch-weight of 164lbs? Ward might muster the courage to face GGG in the future, but will do everything in his power to avoid Kovalev — especially after he dismantles and knocks out Adonis.

Ward is significantly bigger than GGG and would probably outweight him by 12-15 lbs when he stepped into the ring. GGG is a small middleweight. Ward is a light heavyweight who fights as a super middleweight. Combined with his skill set and size advantage it’s no wonder Ward wants to fight him.

Sources familiar with the situation say that the two men had been hired to work on Floyd’s Vegas homes, but when jewelry went missing, Floyd pointed the finger directly at them.

The victims claim they were contacted several weeks ago and instructed to meet Floyd at an off-site location. When the men arrived, they claim Floyd was waiting for them — along with a number of “his people” — who proceeded to attack and savagely beat them with various weapons, including clubs.

Some sources say the attack was so brutal that both victims could have easily died from their injuries. Both men had broken arms and legs and were hospitalized for several days.

The men are adamant they never took anything from Floyd and it appears that Floyd realizes that now. But here’s the problem for the champ: sources familiar with the legalities of situation say the attack amounts to attempted murder, mayhem and kidnapping. The victims have already retained a lawyer and will likely prosecute. Things may not be looking so good for Mayweather who has a history of criminal violence, resulting in incarceration.”

To FAKE TARK… If public enemy likes Garcia because he’s Puerto Rican that’s his business. If he hates Mexicans that’s his problem. I like a lot of Mexican fighters … and Puerto Rican fighters too.

I don’t get involved with Tumbo-Public E fights.

Garcia is undefeated and a terrific counterpuncher. He’s strong and sturdy as Hell. He was way undervalued going into his fights with Khan and Matthysse. I think he still is. Maybe because he’s so laid back … But that is actually the temperament you want in a boxer, so they don’t get all revved up and twisted out of shape for big fights.

Garcia vs. Mayweather would sell but I don’t think Danny can beat Floyd even at this stage of Floyd’s career.

Pac is still the best option.

Other than that, Thurman would be a cool fight.

Floyd vs. Martinez would be HUGE if it were at MW for the Title but its not likely. Martinez is to big and to skilled. Then again, I don’t know where Martinez is at in his career given his injuries and inactivity. I’m solely basing it off of what he “was and not “is” because I don’t know.

Martinez is more dangerous than Pac so if he fought him, all would be forgiven and Pac would be out of the equation. MW Champion, MW Title, Martinez, That’s a bigger legacy fight.

By the official rules of boxing, a fighter is permitted to compete at a set weight class as long as he can make weight during weigh-ins. If FMJ wants to call himself the Jr. MW Champion of the World, he better be prepared to defend those titles and fight slightly larger men who can make weight at 154lbs. Nobody ever forced Floyd to fight at 154lbs, that was his own ego-driven decision. I always hear FMJ fans complaining about cutting weight and re-hydrating in boxing, but it’s been a MAJOR part of the sport for many decades. The official rules are not going to be changed just to accommodate FMJ’s special needs. After the Chino fight, he must either defend the 154lbs titles vs. the very best in the world who can make weight (Lara, Maravilla, 3G) or vacate. It’s that simple. FMJ needs to give the fans what we really want or just retire. And that’s a real legit challenge; not just another walk-in-the-park guaranteed win like Maidana, Guerrero, Ortiz, undersized Hatton, Baldomir, Judah, etc.
Posted March 12, 2014 7:10 pm

He just fought at jrMW and is now defending his WW title.

Next fight will be telling. He can stay or he can go.

What’s giving the fans what they really want? Him fighting MWs?
If he gives up the belt at JrMW than all is fair, right?

As far as the fans wanting him to face Manny Pac, same goes for Pac. BOTH need to make the fight happen (which is already late in the game anyway and negotiations are now going to change given Pac’s loss to JMM and failed PPV) so I wouldn’t hold my breathe.

If he can make money, why retire?

It’s up to you to not tune in. I won’t be buying the fight for 70 dollars. I may however see it at a sports bar for a 10 dollar cover charge but I won’t go out of my way.

Furthermore GGG keeps on telling us that he can make 154lbs but has he?

Squared – you entitled to your opinion however allow me to inform you. First no ifs or buts, forget what Rob Arum and pactards will have you believe Pac was never a154lbs champion ( neither him or Cheato ever faught at the weight) that title is a fraud. Canelo is a LHW or SMW con posing a JMW, Floyd was right to drain him to 152lbs and school him, the boy has no business bullying WWs when he comes in as LHW on fight night. Secondly I would NEVER expect Pac or Bradley for that matter to face MWs to prove their greatness thats just plain stupid, competition has to fair and on level terms but thats just me, can’t speak for other fans but as you can see lately, rules are made up as we go on in boxing and money rules the sport.

Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. LionKing)

Actually Floyd has weighed-in at 150lbs or over three different times. (His ring entrance weight is basically irrelevant.) I’ll take your word for it that he weighed-in as heavy as 152lbs — which is clear indication that he’s big enough to defend his titles at 154lbs. FMJ must must fight Lara, Maravilla or 3G after Chino or VACATE his 154lbs titles. Surely you agree that he must vacate if you’re claiming he’s not big enough to fight at Jr. MW??? By the official rules of boxing, any fighter who can make 154lbs at weigh-ins is small enough to fight for the titles.

BTW….everyone who really knows boxing on ESB recognizes that Martinez is a natural Jr. MW and 3G is a small MW. Both can make 154lbs with no problem and you fan-boyz know it. If you claim that FMJ is the GOAT or “greatest of our time,” then he should be able to fight and beat slightly larger fighters, right???

You’re just hoping and praying that FMJ keeps avoiding the best competition in the world in order to maintain his precious O. So then why doesn’t he fight PacMan, Bradley, or Garcia??? There’s no played out size-related excuses to make with those match-ups.
Posted March 12, 2014 5:11 pm

Coming in at 149-151 on fight-night is not indication that you are big enough to fight at JrMW since the JrMW make weight at 154 and tend to blow up 10-20 pounds by fight-night.

Now if you want both fighters to have a same day weigh-in where both have a max weight limit of 154, YES, then it would be fair. That is, if we are going by strictly size and without the “natural size” arguement.

By the way, Pac has weighed 145lbs on fight night for a long time since he too was one to lose weight for the scales and blow up by fight time. He could have been fighting at WW a long time ago like Floyd did.

And since Pac has weighed around 149 on fight-night, which is close to Floyd, and he has won a World Title at jrMW which we are still counting, right??? he too can fight at jrMW against Lara, GGG and Martinez if they move down and so on, right?

Actually, let’s let the whole WW division of fighters who blow up past 147 on fight-night fight those at jrMW. Hey, some weigh 160+ on fight-night. That sounds like these WW are actually MW. Let’s fight. Great Matchups.

Arum uses Mayweather name to create interest only to match his own fighters at the end, his been doing the same thing for 5 years pity your hatred for Floyd blinds you of the obvious just like you wanna match a Floyd against Maravilla & GGG but will not do the same to Pac.

Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. LionKing)

A TKO is not the same as a “legit KO.” A technical knockout is a stoppage. If they were the exact same thing, they would not be recorded differently in official boxing records. When a fighter is TKO’d, he’s typically still on his feet when the fight is stopped. A “legit KO” means that the loser is either out cold or can’t beat the count, thereby finishing the fight on the canvas — not on his feet or the stool.

A TKO is a KO. Let’s say Klitschko has 53 KO’s. or Ward has 20 KO’s. That includes every time they stopped somebody. Most stoppages don’t go to 10 counts. Mostly the referee or corner stops the fight to minimize injuries.

The word knockout comes from Boxing. It doesn’t mean knocked unconscious. It literally means knocked out of the fight.

Exactly and if you actually look at the Jr Middles he moved up to fight, they all started out at lower weights. Oscar at 135, Cotto at 140 and Canelo started at I think 140 himself, if not 147. He hasn’t fought anybody that started out at 154

Manny Pacquiao has been dominating the sport of boxing for the last decade without question. His fights are memorable, and will be looked upon in the history books as the most action packed fights ever. The fighting Filipino took the sporting world by storm when he came on the scene. As he prepares for what most boxing fans acknowledge is one of the biggest Mega Fight’s in boxing history. Manny Pacquiao seems as calm and collected as he’s always been. The 35 year old iconic sports figure recently did some running in Griffith Park in Los Angeles, which was rumored to have created a mass hysteria of sorts. This is the type of atmosphere that is created when Kings, Queens, Presidents and important dignitaries are present. Manny Pacquiao has become such a figure. This is a man that is trying to change the social fabric of his country. He needed a platform to do this, and the boxing ring is exactly that. Manny Pacquiao is a true Super Star. He represents his people inside and outside the ring with true respect, humility and honor. Watch him speak, and you will be enlightened with his peaceful, compassionate and humble personality. It’s hard to put the true warrior and wonderful human being together at times. His stock continues to rise as the movie documentary “MANNY” came out this month. Movies have had an ongoing love affair with the sport of boxing. Rocky, When We Were Kings, Million Dollar Baby and the Raging Bull have been some outstanding movies. From all accounts, this documentary (MANNY) may receive a nomination for the best movie of the year. Early reviews are giving it a thumb up. This is a miraculous story of a child that became a man through the most difficult of times. A boxing champion that today is called the Peoples Champion. The tears shed by viewers could have filled the Atlantic Ocean. The trailer itself had me thinking of how fortunate and blessed I am. I wanted to reach out to someone and give them a helping hand. I believe this trailer and movie will lead most of you to do the same if you’re human. I highly suggest that all of you view this movie when the opportunity comes. I can tell you without any doubt that an addendum to this movie will be needed. Manny Pacquiao’s story is still being written, and the best is yet to come. First up is Timothy Bradley. Redemption for Many will come in the form of a knockout as early as 4 rounds or as late as the 8th round. Manny will not have compassion for the fighter that has told him face to face that he had lost his killer instinct. That move by Bradley is comparable to putting your head in a hornets nest and telling yourself that they won’t sting. Manny Pacquiao is on a mission and everyone fighter from 140-160 better get out of his way. This is a highly motivated man that will not be stopped. Porter, Mayweather, Khan, Garcia, Martinez, Canelo, Broner or anyone else in those weight classes will have trouble with the living legend, Manny Pacquiao. Manny is the best!

Dazani, exactly. Same rules though don’t apply for Floyd as they do everybody else. There is a double standard when it comes to him
Posted March 12, 2014 4:51 pm

Floyd wants additional drug testing because the system is outdated and he is ridiculed. JMM knocks Pac out and all of a sudden additional testing should be the demand and the only reason Pac lost was because he was on PEDs despite JMM passing the same tests (although out-dated) that Pac, fans, and media said were just fine and FLoyd was simply overreacting. You’re a hypocrite Jim Lampley.

Pac fights a post-KO’d Margarito at a 150 catchweight and for a vacant title. It’s Cool. Pac picks up a title. Floyd fights at a 152 catchweight for a real title against an undefated youthful fighter and he is blasted.

It’s better to be the “nice guy” when you don’t want heat coming your way.

And people will talk about how SRL and SRR moved up to MW to face the MW Champs, how come Floyd can’t do it, after all, he compares himself to them.
WHY? Because those two were naturally bigger and were natural WW. SRL

Floyd is just TOO GREAT. No Fighter is going to beat him. He’s going to beat HIMSELF. IF he doesn’t retire in time then he will eventually reach the point where his body won’t DO what his mind tells it to DO and that’s when he will get beat. It won’t be because of what the other Boxer DID it will be because of what Floyd could no longer DO or couldn’t DO when he wanted to DO it. …at the rate that he’s going now that won’t happen until he’s at least 40.

I’m not saying Floyd is even like Hopkins was at that age since Hopkins used to give rounds away so that he could conserve his stamina for the later rounds but it does show that nobody beats Father time and these guys start to be economical with how much energy they put out during fights.

Posted March 12, 2014 4:37 pm

Maybe. Louis was severly past his prime, some would say shot, but he still had a beating heart that could win against some of the top fighters of his day (which isn’t saying much at all because it was such a piss poor era) so that’s why I threw him in there.

Interesting enough, Louis knocked out Walcott before Marciano did. Tough fights with Charles going 1-1. Walcott knocked out Charles before Marciano did. Over the years that beat each other up. I’m throwing in Moore into the equation since he was in the mix as well.
So how was it that these guy who did a round robin of beating each other up get thrown such God-like status by some fans as somehow peaking when they fought Marciano??

The overall point however is that a youthful fighter who is well conditioned is willing to take one to give one and has power in his punches can spoil a fight for a savvy veteran. Luckily in Floyd’s case he hasn’t had as many fights or wars as those guys so he should be OK to some degree. But he is not the same fighter and their are fights that would give him a lot more trouble based on style matchups.

Marciano-Louis is a VERY bad example. Louis was not the Top rated Fighter in the ENTIRE Sport like Floyd IS. A BETTER example is O’Sullivan vs Corbett. But that’s not that GOOD of an example either because although O’Sullivan was the Favorite he was the LESSER SKILLED Fighter. SKILLS had not been discovered to be GREATER than SIZE yet. That Fight brought forth the FACT.

You need to stop with your BS. Martinez and GGG are 160lb fighters.
Posted March 12, 2014 4:28 pm

Did you see the Cotto/Martinez press conference and see the size of Martinez vs. Cotto?

NO WAY should Floyd step in the ring with the likes of Martinez and GGG. The natural size difference would be obvious. And add in their skill level, its not fair to push Floyd into those fights. Would anyone do it with Pac, Thurman, Bradley, etc.? I think not.

IF you’re eyeing a showdown with Mayweather you need to be facing BETTER opponents than Herrera. And you need to be Fighting at WW. We don’t want to hear the EXCUSE that you had no Fights at WW. You could have taken on a B-/C+ Fighter at Welter instead of at 140.

Just look at Marciano vs. Louis, Charles, Moore and Walcott: To punch pressure, youth, and punch-out-put took out the savvy veterans who were better pure boxers and one could argue may have beaten the Rock in their younger years. At least stood a much better chance.

Floyd Patterson’s trainer, no, not D’Amato, said that he was around those guys and all of them could be worn down by youth like we saw Marciano was able to do.

So is this what Floyd saw with Pac?

Some may say Maidana could be Rock and Floyd those older savvy opponents that were worn down in the long haul in the fight. HOWEVER, of course, Floyd doesn’t have nearly as many fights or brutal wars and has never been knocked out like CHarles, MOore and Walcott so it doesn’t quite work.

Actually Floyd weighed in at 152 at the weight in but came in at 150 or below on fight night.

It will be interesting as Floyd gets older whose chances of beating him go up.

I don’t get this “Floyd is only getting better” nonsense since he is not. He is declined since his early 30’s physically. Even Roach pointed it out. However, he is fighting a more calculating fight which includes being more economical with his punch-out-put and movement do to what I think is a stamina issue starting with is legs. Sure, he is in great condition but for a 37 year old great athlete. But he is just like Bernard Hopkins was in his career how Hopkins was supreme in his 20’s and early 30’s but declined as the years went on only to be smarter and more economical with the amount of energy he put out. “less is more.” And you can get away with that with 90% of the fighters out there. That’s how Jack Johnson, Larry Holmes and some other savvy veterans were able to do it.
AND YES, that’s why I think Pac would have been a great test for Floyd because of his energy, punch-out-put, agility, etc. to force Floyd to up his pace even though I think Floyd would have just relied on his long reach, JAB, right cross, and slight movements back which has proven to be something difficult for Pac to fight against and just make it a boring fight.

Really I didn’t realize when they read off a guys record they say he has this many KOs and then this many TKOs. The ref could of let it continue and the next punch would of amounted to a KO. But who cares. He out classes every opponent.

The reason that Garcia is fighting in PR is to have some leverage when and if he fights Mayweather. PPV reflects the following of each fighter and what he brings in $ to the event. Garcia has as much chance of beating Mayweather as Guererro did. Floyd can outbox just about everyone from 140 to 154 but it ends there. Devastating power is the antidote (GGG). Danny is fast but not a devastating puncher. He will be punished in order to earn the big payday. It really is about business.

Floyd’s win over Hatton was and is officially recorded as a TKO, not a KO. Any guy who claims to be knowledgeable about boxing should know the difference between a TKO and KO. And Floyd has weighed over 150lbs two different times, so you’re wrong about that as well. Truth is that FMJ has good height and long reach for a WW and is the current 154lbs Champion of the World. I don’t care what you fan-boyz or the “money team” says because clearly he’s a good sized WW who’s more than capable of fighting at Jr. MW. His team just keeps spouting that B.S. to continue ducking guys like Maravilla and 3G — both of whom can make 154lbs with no problem whatsoever. Real talk.

Hopefully Swift catches Floyd at the right time and puts his lights out with a wicked left hook for the whole world to see..karma is waiting

TARK

Floyd said, “Do you want me to fight Khan or Maidana?”

He didn’t say, “Should I fight Danny Garcia?

Danny is not a complete fighter like Mikey. His jab isn’t fully developed. I don’t think you outjab Mayweather anyway. What Danny has is great timing. His straight right is quick… his left hook is quicker… his chin is solid… he can throw a right hook as well… He can outstrength you inside… his handspeed is underrated… his balance, leverage, and power are excellent… He’s very patient, very intense, and if you make a mistake you’re on the canvas against him… Danny was the underdog vs Khan and Matthysse … and he delivered.

He’s one of the guys Floyd is very wary of because you can’t intimidate Danny. He knows Floyd can be hit. He saw Floyd’s fights with De La Hoya and Cotto..

Like Buster Douglas said when a reporter asked him about being a 42:1 underdog, “Come on man…that’s stupid. Whoever figured that didn’t watch Tyson against Tucker. Mike is wide open … After 5 rounds I’ll be the favorite.”

i like this fight. I like it better at 140. FM routinely weighs in at 145 and 146 on fight night. He’d have no problem making 140.

Posted March 12, 2014 3:49 pm 


PEEJ

Pac has actually weighed 147 more than once and has weighed 146 a few times. You would think someone who claims to be knowledgeable about boxing would know that.

Posted March 12, 2014 3:49 pm 


PEEJ

Floyd and his team has stated he could make 140. So yeah I would say he is a small WW. Especially since he is out weighed by everybody on fight night.

Posted March 12, 2014 3:41 pm 


PEEJ

And coming in to each of those 154 matches at 150 or below. And the TKO was because Pac got up on wobbly legs and was not coherent. Still goes down as a KO.

Posted March 12, 2014 3:40 pm 


Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. LionKing)

Actually Floyd’s win over Hatton was a TKO not a KO. I said he hasn’t scored a “legit KO since 1999″ and that is a FACT. At only 5’6″ with a short 67″ reach, the heaviest PacMan has ever weighed is 147lbs — and that was once. He’s a truly small WW, not FMJ who has fought for 154lbs titles three different times. Floyd is the current Jr. MW Champion of the World for pete’s sake. Clearly, he’s NOT a small WW. That’s a totally ridiculous assertion — especially by someone who claims to be knowledgeable about boxing.

In reality, Garcia has been interested in a fight with FMJ for sometime now: “ ‘I’m a boxer, at the end of the day I like to fight the best, so you know that’s what my manager wanted, and that’s what my team wanted, and that’s what I want,’ Garcia said, speaking on fighting Mayweather.” And if Garcia didn’t make it clear enough in the past, he’s making it clear now, so the past doesn’t matter anyway.

I like Danny he’s a classic boxer puncher and fights whoever is put in front of him. I don’t know anything about Herrera but I believe Danny will have another strong outing. Not sure Mayweather should be anytime soon. Mayweather is on a level few ever get to. Danny could use just a bit more seasoning before he climbs in the ring with Mayweather. Perhaps a couple of fights at 147 to test the waters and see what it’s like.

Posted March 12, 2014 3:24 pm

I hope Danny uses his leverage and demands a huge percentage of the purse because hes Floyds biggest draw at GB. Hed be stupid to take anything less than 10 mil guaranteed plus a portion of the ppv revenue. Floyd has no one else to sell a mil buys with.

Garcia hasn’t been looking for a Floyd fight and has said this over and over. Floyd is a small WW no matter how you look at it. And he KOd Hatton. That was in 2007. I would say that was a legitimate KO

I like this fight. I would give Garcia a bigger chance than most I think. He may lack the athleticism but this guy just always gets the job done. He’s so solid as a competitor. I don’t see why he shouldn’t seriously be considered as a Floyd opponent; if he takes care of business Saturday.

Posted March 12, 2014 2:36 pm 


Squared-Circle Real Talk (a.k.a. LionKing)

FMJ fan-boys always claim their hero is actually a small WW, which is of course nonsense, so he should be jumping at the chance to fight Garcia — a REAL champion who will move up to 147lbs just to fight him. Team Garcia should be confident because FMJ doesn’t have much power and hasn’t scored a LEGIT KO since back in 1999. His style is to outpoint opponents by landing one quick jab or lead right at a time and then dancing around or hitting his bicycle. I predict that FMJ will avoid Garcia like the plague — just like PacMan, Maravilla and 3G.

Danny Garcia is a good fighter. He’s likable and deserves a good pay day, but he doesn’t have the style or athleticism to beat Mayweather. This will be another boring fight as Floyd counters him all night as Danny wings that left hook and misses by a mile. Danny is a likable kid, but his big mouth dad is a joke. I can imagine him getting into it with Floyd already. A side show for sure. Danny needs to fight other guys that will match up with him better. Anyone in the welterweight division except that big mouth no talent Malignaggi.

Posted March 12, 2014 2:08 pm 


Hidalg0

Danny is untested and unproven as a welterweight. He would get a fight with Floyd only because he is at the top of the jr. welterweight division, and he is popular, marketable, and well-liked, but he hasn’t fought Thurman, Porter, Alexander, Maidana, Malignaggi, Bradley, or Pacquiao. Any of those welterweights would give Danny a run for his money. So a step right to the top of the welterweight ladder would be a big leap for him. Does he deserve it at this time? Maybe. One thing for sure however, it would be a huge PPV event.

I see Mayweather taking this fight either this September if the Khan fight does not materialise or definitely early next year.

Like Canelo, Garcia will only become stronger/ improve over the next couple of years whereas Mayweather believe or not will begin to deteriorate.

At present Garcia is still relatively green from looking at his resume/ experience, thus can foresee Mayweather neutralising a potential future threat as soon as possible.

Posted March 12, 2014 2:03 pm 


srminimo

Danny is young and he’s only going to get better in the next couple of years, as they continue to match him tough. I’m glad they’re not rushing him to fight Floyd, they don’t need to. The kid is doing well and, if the current state of PR fighting continues, he and Verdejo will be THE stars of the island, so in 2 years time he would stand to make a lot more money than the peanuts Floyd would throw at him now.

Yeah he has earned the Floyd fight, if he wants the fight he should be able to get the fight. I like the fight but Floyd wins.

I hope Garcia puts on a good performance in his upcoming fight because although I dont think he wins, I do think he earned the mayweather fight.
