No need to watch this crap because we know already the winner. Fraud Floyd will keep his zero that’s his legacy to fight bums below his level.

The Oracle moron how is Pacquaio rated as Floyd’s WBC mandatory? Please explain that to the level headed boxing fans. Manny gets iced by Marquez then fights a roided bum in Rios somewhere in China. I’ve got a whole day will wait for your response how the corrupt WBC fast tracked Pacquaio to be Mayweather’s mandatory, when he was coming off a loss and so was Rios who never fought at 147lbs. You guys are just plain dumb, really. Just haters doing their job as usual. So its fine for Pacuqiao to fight Rios after Bun Bum lost. Floyd can never fight Maidana coming from his biggest win?

“None of Floyd’s fights have been close except for his bout with de la hoya which he won by split decision.”

I agreee with this statement.. Kaczmarek scored it for Oscar.

EZ E…, “@Pugfan hmmm… With all due respects but.. it surely seems like you forgot about Floyd vs Castillo 1 ???”

Floyd won both Castillo 1 and 2 by UD’s… and by a much wider margin on all cards in the 1st fight … Castillo threw a bunch of low blows… punches after the bell… punches on the break… and punches to non-scoring areas in the clinches … The judges were smart. They didn’t count those.

The judges in Mayweather-Castillo II tried to rob Floyd… but couldn’t do it because Floyd won every round easy.

“Funny how people put their own spin on things regardless of the facts. Two legal punches and the referee counts to 10. That’s not a KO for them.”

But Ref Joe Cortez didn’t even know Ortiz had been hit until he saw him fall. Why? Because idiot Cortez wasn’t even looking at the fighters and was talking to someone outside the ring. No spin on that. That’s the truth. The Mayweather/Ortiz fight was a farce. It was a disgrace to boxing.

You can do it!

I like Maidana and I hope he can win but I doubt it. Mayweather is way better than Broner in everything. Above all, Maweather has ring smarts. Broner was just an imitation.

@ Popkins cheaterigo lost 3 of 4 by stoppage after getting caught with loaded gloves but that’s supposed to be an impressive win by pac. Fighting for a vacant title that pac nor cheater were ranked in the division? Bradley is a good fighter but nowhere near a 37 year old Mayweather. Floyd started as a 130lb fighter and has fought weighing as much as 150lb for jmw title. If cotto was old after the cheater and pac losses what was cheater after shane pulverized him

Posted March 31, 2014 5:27 pm 


poor pacturds

Manny beat Oscar, Cotto, Mosely and Hatton. All after Floyd his lefts overs but when Floyd beat these same guys there were cherry picked? How can they be cherry picked for one and not the other? I mean these are supposed to be the p4p best Floyd and Manny right? Floyd beat Oscar, and Cotto at 154 not 147 like pacroid either. Poor pactards who make excuses when Floyd wins like they were cherry picked or Marquez and Miadana is too small for Floyd? But there are the same size as Manny who Floyd is supposed to be scared of right? Or better yet they make excuses why Manny lost like C.J. Ross cheated him and Marquez was juiced up and got lucky. Ass clowns Manny is nothing without the juice he is a average Joe.

hahahaha, Madiana hasn’t got a chance. You must understand. little floyd will NEVER pick an opponent he can’t easily beat. I don’t blame floyd. He wants the money, which is ok, but he will never be considered a champion of any kind. The name Champion is reserved for fighters who will face anyone, like Pacquiao.

Posted March 31, 2014 3:59 pm

Maidana doesn’t stand a chance when Gloyd demands 12 oz gloves. Maidan as power will be reduce to soft pillow punches. Floyd demands everything in his favor. That’s where his real talent comes from. Cherry picking, demanding and fixing fights. Not in his boxing skills where it’s a snoozer fight!

Quick Jab, good point, that maidana advantage because he be in Floyd face all night, Floyd can’t keep him at a distance jabbing, maidana will press no matter what.and as Floyd not going to sit down on his punches to get respect till late,as safety .

If maidana mix his punches well and keep them coming that over hand right lobbing will find Floyd for sure in a few exchanges. This should be Floyd toughest fight in a while. But Floyd expected to out preform as paulie and Alexander got pass maidana, just sorry butt broner got creamed….

“If you count the Ortiz fight a KO – I don’t Hatton was his last.”

Funny how people put their own spin on things regardless of the facts. Two legal punches and the referee counts to 10. That’s not a KO for them.

Ortiz could have gotten up if he tried hard. He was looking for an early exit to avoid punishment, and still make his 5MM, but if you stay down it’s a KO. Max Baer did the same thing against Joe Louis but was honest about it taking the count on his knee.

Reporter.., “Max, why didn’t you get up?”

Baer.., “Forty bucks lets these people see a fight. If they want to watch a murder they’ll have to pay a lot more.”

Ortiz had a huge grin on his face as the count tolled… Like the cat who ate the canary.

That maybe true and like I have said many times before I think he runs 160 as long as he stays there. 168 is a whole different beast. But the problem here is they are the ones that called out folks all the way to 175. Once they said sure they would fight him, they backed off that statement.

Posted March 31, 2014 1:30 pm

… Lol. Everyone wants to cash in on JC. Don’t blame GGG for staying at 160 otherwise tho – he doesn’t seem big enough to tackle the elite super middles.

Posted March 31, 2014 1:02 pm

Yep just read an interview with GGG promoter and they said they are not gonna fight Ward. GGG is not ready for a Ward fight is what he was saying. Says his natural weight division is 160 and that is were they are gonna stay at. Well of course except for the fight with Chavez Jr.

Posted March 31, 2014 10:56 am

@ Jay GGG won’t fight Ward after saying for over a year that anyone from 154 – 168 can get a beating. Ward answers up and now GGG needs to clean up the middleweight division. The very next fight is Chavez jr at 168.

If Floyd stands in front of Maidana and thinks hes gonna slug he will get mowed down like Broner did. That philly shell wont work against Maidana.

To some small extent this fight reminds me of Leonard vs Duran 1. It was the intensity and output of Duran that enabled him to narrowly get by Ray, banging and plugging away every time, when ever and where ever Ray was in range or against the ropes. Ray made it a bit easier for Duran by not taking advantage of his exceptional footwork and lateral movements, standing his ground & choosing to engage a bit too often. Ray was younger and faster than Floyd is today, no doubt. But… Maidana is no NO Duran. El Chino’s only chance is pull a ‘Duran’ on Floyd to whatever extmaidana’sent he possibly can. He can’t outbox, out maneuver and out think May, so what else does he have?

Posted March 31, 2014 8:48 am 


Popkins

Boxing Barlow …good points – I agree with your first post. I think most would agree Mayweather looked flawless and at his very best in his last fight against Alvarez, who himself was a high level opponent. Add also Floyd has taken so little punishment in his career and is always in perfect condition, then he can not possibly have become completely shot since beating Canelo. That argument will not hold up. …. With regards to Roy, I think people view his career in two different lights: the untouchable pre heavyweight RJJ, and the drained post Ruiz version that didn’t fully recover from a heavy KO defeat. …….Floyd does not appear to have an excuse for such a rapid deterioration. This makes facing the likes of Maidana and Khan instead of people like Bradley, Pacquiao, GGG, Martinez and Garcia, even more of a gamble.

Posted March 31, 2014 8:34 am

Boxing Barlow problem with Floyd he doesn’t fight fighters that are a threat to him. He will never fight 3 g or Martinez

boxing barlow

Popkins – The interesting this with legacies are when do they start and stop. For example Roy Jones. Has his legacy been tarnished by his later career or is he still considered the best fighters of his genertaion for how good he was at his peak? The reason I say this is, if Floyd comes in and looks awful, ages over night and gets knocked out, does that tarnish his rep? Or do we stand back and think a peak Floyd would have beat Maidana hands down so it dont count?

Posted March 31, 2014 7:19 am 


boxing barlow

Maidana is a poor choice of opponent in my opinion and does nothing for Mayweathers legacy. He needs to keep challenging himself and the only fights that I would have considered would have enhanced his career are GGG or Martinez up at middleweight. Beyond this you’ve obviously got Pacman, who if he beat him he would have reached a level in his career which there would be no way of enhancing his legacy any further and he would be fighting purely for the money. Pacman on the other hand has a slightly different route. It is not practical due to his size to move above welterweight so a move to fight the likes of Martinez or GGG are unreasonable unlike in Mayweathers case. However if he avenges the robbery he suffered against Bradley (who is a far better scalp than Maidana) then goes onto beat Marquez in a return fight in my opinion legacy wise Pacman and Mayweather will be both on the same page with nothing to really pick between them. In my opinion if they do eventually get it on in the ring whoever comes out as the winner you could put a argument forward for them being the best fighter of all time. On the other hand if the fight never happens I don’t think that argument could be made.

Maidana will take inspiration from the way Castillo dragged Floyd into a 50/50 fight, and the way an old, battle worn Mosley was able to hurt him. Marcos will either KO Mayweather or get knocked out trying. Probably the latter.

Posted March 31, 2014 6:15 am 


Popkins

If Mayweather were to get knocked out by Maidana (highly unlikely I know, but strange things happen in boxing – Lewis/Rahman, Wlad/Brewster, RJJ/Tarver, Tyson/Douglas etc etc) ………….. … How will Floyd’s boxing legacy be affected? Losing to a solid, but never spectacular fighter like Maidana wud surely put a massive dent in his all time standing. Wud people now view Pacman as being the best of their generation? Wen u fight a guy who is barely in the top 10 at 147 let alone the top 10 P4P u can’t afford to fail.

Floyd will not fight Martinez at 154 or even 150, he refuses to fight Golovkin at 154? Floyd is best at 147 even when he fights at 154 he has trouble making the weight the mist he came in is around 150, That’s why Canelo agreed to come down to 152 so they can meet in the middle. Martinez and GGG are way too big ass clown I guess next he should fight klitschko. Moron look at the history Manny is the one who wlaked away and continues to have his opponents hand picked like Rios. Now is ppvs are in the toilet and he hasn’t been dominate since 09 when he was beating up dehydrated fighters or guys coming off losses.

Posted March 31, 2014 12:33 am 


Poor pactards

None of Floyds fights have been even close. Judges on the other hand have leaned Mannys way more then once. Marquez kept getting robbed until he got tired and KTFO out of pacroid there is no comparison from Floyd to Manny. Now as far as being scared Manny is the one who turned down the fight in 09 over a blood test not Floyd.

I predict Maidana gets deducted atleast 1 point for a rabbit punch. I don’t agree completely what the author said about no chance of Maidana winning a decision. Ofcourse he can’t outbox Mayweather but if he can do a ton of work in clinches and stagger Floyd in more than 2 rounds I could possibly see an upset decision. I unfortunately see Floyd win by Maj decision, but this is boxing and nothing is a sure thing. Lets all just appreciate the fight for what it is and enjoy it. My only point is there is never any absolutes in this sport. That’s why I love it.

Of course if you’re in a situation like Buster Douglas was in versus Mike Tyson, you might actually enjoy being the underdog — on second thought.

Because if you’re a 42:1 underdog your opponent is almost certain to underestimate you… It’s a chance to prove all those idiots wrong who think you stink that bad… And when you win it’s going to make bigger headlines all over the world because it was so unexpected… It’s a chance to shut anyone up who ever doubted you.

Maidana has zero chance to win. None. Too slow, predictable, one dimensional, no defense, telegraphs every shot, bad feet, no head movement. Seriously, this is a waste of a fight. Toughness wins nothing. Mayweather picked this fight to look good against a guy who has no boxing skills. Just a plodder that throws wide power punches. Mayweather will win this fight 12-0 or stop him late. If Mayweather had the courage , guts and heart to stand toe to toe and show us that he can also fight insdie, toe to toe and beat Maidana, then and only then would I give him credit, but he tried that once against Cotto, and he was crying like a little girl. Not quite as tough a fighter as he thought. Floyd is comfortable when he can hit and run and beat guys on his athleticism, but when it comes down to fighting, he crumbles unlike the legendary Manny Pacquiao that comes to fight, and also showed in his last fight that he was a boxing master. If he had chosen to fight that way throughout his career, guess what? He would be unbeaten at 58-0, but he’s a fighter that takes chances. Maidana against Pacquiao would have been the most electrifying fight in history. Two fighters that have heart, courage and guts to fight a man mano a mano. Floyd just can’t step up, so he will beat Maidana with his athleticism.
