I take a slightly differing view than you re Miadana and Mayweather. I actually think that Maidana and Khan were both contacted re the possibility of facing Mayweather on May 3rd the day he beat Broner. I remember reading a tweet from Maidana to this effect soon after. Anyway, Marcos has had almost the best prep you can get to face Floyd by beating Broner. Yes, Broner is no snakes compared to Floyd, but who else is and he has had 12 tough rounds under genuine fight conditions under the lights and is the next best thing you can get other than the real thing. I have been keenly watching Chino since he joined with Robert Garcia and his last 4 fights have shown a distinct improvement in his defence, sneaky jab to head or body, he showed good and new defensive moves vs the big Soto Karrass and his improvement continued to being able to land his punches which are now less crude and more accurate And focused on the crab like defence of Broner. Under Garcia he has a good tutor and a decent stable of fighters be can learn from and spar with and I’m sure they were in the gym already either plotting for Floyd or a rematch with Broner.
They know what works and what doesn’t work with Broner which is a good platform for Floyd. In my personal opinion I think he will give Floyd more trouble than anyone since Oscar and he will be there right til the last bell.

Additionally, HHLondon, there’s a difference between staying in shape and training to fight a specific opponent. If you think I am wrong, ask Floyd Mayweather Sr.

“When you talk like that, you just make yourself look like a chump ;-) and someone who has never competed at the lowest levels of sport.”

According to you and what army? You just advertised your ignorance about the sport by what you just said. Marcos Rene Maidana will be fighting the biggest fight of his life and YOU don’t think a few weeks cut off his training before the fight will make a difference?

Stupid is as stupid does.

Mayweather resides in the gym.

You don’t beat champ after champ into your late 30’s at 147 and 154lbs by “nicking” a couple of weeks off your opponent in camp.

When you talk like that, you just make yourself look like a chump ;-) and someone who has never competed at the lowest levels of sport.

“Floyd knew it was Maidana all along and threw Khan out there to lower expectations.”

Exactly. And while Mayweather was pretending to try to decide between Khan and Maidana, his daddy was already studying Maidana tapes and training Floyd for a fight with Maidana. They intentionally waited til the last minute to announce it would be Maidana so as to limit his time to prepare to fight Floyd.

‘”Mayweather spent a lot of time deciding on his next opponent”, says Showtime’s Espiniza’

Mayweather took a long time to choose? Really? Who knew?

This is why I’m so glad when I check to look on ESB: where else would I have learnt such news?

No doubt the wirter interviewed “Espiniza [sic.]” himself to get this hot scoop.

Great investigative journalism!

Teflon the double poster, you write the same dumb stuff all the time. Why take 40 mill when he was just paid 35 to beat cotto and manny was 1 p4p. Floyd wasn’t king and didn’t deserve the bigger pay.

Fight Aficionado

Floyd knew it was Maidana all along and threw Khan out there to lower expectations. Then when they announced Maidana it looked like he was going with the tougher opponent. He did the same thing with Guerrero after everyone rioted when he hinted he’d fight that bum Devon Alexander.

Excuse me, I meant too say that it must be nice to get paid for “writing” articles that are basically plagiarized from other sources.

For a fight of this magnitude and importance, it seems to me there should be a rule requiring fighters to have enough notice prior to the fight to allow at least eight weeks preparation before a bout.

Posted March 27, 2014 12:02 pm 


Actually, Mayweather had already decided on fighting Maidana long before he announced it. This did two things for Floyd, it allowed him to start early in preparation for this fight, and it left Maidana a relatively short period of time–about five weeks–to prepare for the fight. Floyd always looks for any edge to beat his opponents. Very sneaky, very slick, not necessarily very honest or honorable.

Boxing Fan

All 3 fights should be on regular Showtime, this is not a worthy PPV event. The fight I would prefer to see the most out of the 3 would be Khan vs Collazo, I think this would be an exciting fight.

Marvin Mitchell

What is Marvin Hagler talking about Floyd Mayweather not fighting the best fighters out there can you count On 2 hands how many belts Floyd cook from champions and what does Khan has to offer he already got knocked out from a 140 and forty pound her

Does anyone in their right mind want to PAY to see Floyd fight someone we all KNOW he can beat(easy dollars) and, to add insult to injury to see an undercard that features you know, that other “great” fighter named CON??? HELL TO THE NOOOOO!! Floyds fight will be a super flop. He’s fighting Maidana for two reasons mostly. One is because Maidana has a belt, which may help sell this non-event and the other is, Maidana is not a true WW, is not dangerous and most of all……everyone one including Stevie Wonder can see Floyd can beat a non-elite fighter named Maidana. Knock yourself out and pay for it if you feel this side-show is worth the kind of money but in reality, this is more a circus like atmosphere.

Geez that is why this writer is not working for Showtime.

lawyer/salesman/dumbass insulting our intelligence

Mayweather said he would fight the winner of his poll. The winner was Khan. Mayweather lies again. I’m not interested in a Mayweather/Khan bout but the FMJ credibility sinks more and more with every lie and excuse not to fight against the best or who the fans choose.

Posted March 27, 2014 1:46 am 


Wow! This is the second article by Rob Smith in which he made some very bold statements. Again, he’s questioning the credibility of Collazo, stating his relevance to the boxing world. Here you have Khan who has struggled against mediocre competition, and is a loss away from being irrelevant period and he says nothing about this guy. Then he mentions Khan vs Broner as being a better fight for the undercard. Clearly he didn’t do his homework, as it’s been stated that Broner is going down to 140 and Khan is moving up to 147. The difference in weight class killed that fight alone. It’s the best possible undercard that could be made considering that other named fighters already have dates set for future fights. More credibility lost for Rob Smith. He’s on a roll….

Void is a coward. Void is extremely afraid of Pac, I have never seen a boxer as afraid of another fighter as I have seen with Void’s fear of Pac. Void is truly void……….Pac Vs. Void would be the biggest PPV event in boxing history, but Void’s fear keeps him from doing it. Void could make this fight happen, but again, it’s his fear……………………

Give me a break! Spent a lot of time deciding on his next opponent. Stupid worthless statement Espinoza is another one of those pathetic Mayweather puppets. And please pick another topic to discuss rather than a useless one like this.
