And when is here some floyidiots claim there is no one for mayweather left to fight at ww they crack me up …lol as if Guerrero and Maidana are best ww …. There are at least two names there for him to beat and prove he is the best .
Here you go mayweather , prove us wrong … I dare youPosted May 27, 2014 11:07 am
Slowly but surely *Posted May 27, 2014 11:03 am
Sredmond ,there are 3 names that mayweather will never ever fight because he is not sure he can win and those are as you know I always said that here :
I was laughed at here by most when I said Thurman beats mayweather anytime as soon as he fought Quintana , slowly but slowly those who laughed are becoming “believers”…Posted May 27, 2014 11:02 am
Sredmond.., you know damned well I never picked Canelo to beat Floyd — and I ALWAYS had Floyd favored to win. Especially right after the weigh-in when I said Canelo blew it. I posted that Canelo looked parched—and even Andre Ward said he looked very weak.. I picked Floyd to win by a decision all the way through… My prediction was one point off the actual scores and you know how close I was… You said Floyd would smoke, paint, shred, and KO Canelo — and you were dead wrong as usual.
Now if Floyd fights Lara… Porter… Thurman… Brook… or Pacquiao in his next 3 fights I’ll reverse everything I’ve ever said about Floyd being a ducker… He’ll have the greatest resume ever.
But I don’t believe, based on Floyd trying to engineer a Khan fight… that he has any intention of fighting any great boxer who’s out there … because doing so would be a substantial risk to his “O”Posted May 26, 2014 7:12 pm
Garcia isn’t special. I think Thurman beats him, he beat khan and Judah. Can he be special YES, but he doesn’t do any wow stuff yet. Best win was Lucas and they have stayed away from a second. Porter v Garcia would tell us a story if Garcia is coming upPosted May 26, 2014 7:11 pm
Common knowledge in boxing circles I would say false. Your opinion and that’s it. Same as they said Marquez doped but no evidence. Your opinion doesn’t mean anything in the big picture it’s pure speculation with no evidence. Slim I think your a poo fter but I don’t have evidence so I just don’t bring it upPosted May 26, 2014 7:08 pm
I love Ruslan, but he doesn’t have gate.Posted May 26, 2014 3:06 pm
Anonymous, Garcia is a damn good young fighter that said what SPECIAL accolades are you gonna give FMJ for beating him that you are withholding since Floyd defeated Marquez, Cotto, Canelo, Mosley ODH and Guerrero? My point is when will the FINAL guy satisfy you? Do you really think Garcia is MORE dangerous than Canelo? We all know Mayweather cannot fight everyone the guys 37 and his career is almost over.. You guys just throw out names and pray the man loses…Posted May 26, 2014 2:58 pm
Ruslan will run over any GBP fighters at 140lbs and 147lbs so stop the crap about Floyd has a lot of opponents and Pacman only have Ruslan and Marquez. GBP top fighters at 140 and 147 are all a joke! None of them fights past 30 fights! No top fights only waiting for Floyd to take them on PPV status or maybe just an attraction on a PPV event. None of them are PPV materials!Posted May 26, 2014 2:58 pm
Floyd is right boxing is a business.
Fanboy Red, you really kill me too! Agree, Garcia is not all that but then, not worse any other fighter who holds no belt or credibility. Challenges are won in the ring, not outside with words, which is Floyd’s M.O., not to mention, his fanboysl like yourself and Mumbo.Posted May 26, 2014 1:49 pm
Tark, I think Garcia is a very good young fighter but he is not all that, he was looking like do do in the late rounds against a beyond washed up Judah… Danny is a high contact fighter and that left hook will be right on Floyds radar… Man you really kill me!Posted May 26, 2014 1:15 pm
Tark says “Porter, Thruman and Garcia are too good for Floyd to face them… AGAIN what do you base that on their comp Tark?? Porters top wins are Alexander, and Malignaggi SOOOOO if Floyd beat Alexander and Malignaggi would you be content? Garcia beat Judah (Floyd beat him when he was still relevant back in the mid 2000’s) and Amir Khan who everyone was and is pissed Floyd even considered fighting SOOOO would you be content if he beat Khan, Matthysee or this version of Judah AGAIN… ??? Alexander beat Maidana OK Floyd beat Maidana so are you content? Alexander has gifts against Kotelnik and Matthysee…. Neither Porter, Garcia nor Thurman who beat (Soto Karass) AFTER Maidana had knocked him out are better than Canelo Alvarez or a slew of Mayweather opponents… These are YOUNG fighters and you just said that you need guys to be at a special peak that you assign after Floyd takes them to school… HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!Posted May 26, 2014 1:10 pm
Tark was RAVING that Canelo was gonna defeat Floyd just like Bears was and AFTER he lost now Tark says “Canelo was 7 years from his peak” first of all how the hell do YOU know when Canelo is and is not PEAK??? Canelo might be OUT of boxing Jeff Lacy style before he is 30 years old you moron… Secondly was Mayweather supposed to face him when he is 43 in order to appease your nonsense? GTFOH.. Its always the SAME excuses with Floyd Mayweather, Terry Norris was 23 when he beat the brakes off Sugar Ray Leonard, Holmes put wood to an old Ali at 36, Tyson laid Holmes out…Old fighters are fodder for some young guys and fact is that Floyd is unique in that he is always 100% prepared just like Maidana in the rest find out… During the late rounds when guys are tired, the FAMOUS Mayweather stamina kicks in and he ups the ante leaving guys in the dust… Maidana SHOT his wad and then he was getting drilled cleaning as the fight concluded allowing FMJ to seal the win… Tark what happened to your praise of Cotto? are you saying that Lara, Porter or whomever else you can invent are better than Cotto and Canelo? GTFOH…Posted May 26, 2014 1:04 pm
Manny has Marquez and Ruslan thats it, Porter, Thurman , Danny Garcia and the best fight for golden boy so those fights wont happen same with Floyd…Posted May 26, 2014 11:50 am
Dang, T.I. just whupped Floyd! He da new p4p champ, who need Floyd any mo’?!? He gittin’ old anyhow, he nearly done. Dang, gotta sign T.I. for my stable, build him up for a bout against Manny instead! Dayum!!Posted May 26, 2014 6:44 am
Anyways, if a Mayweather fight doesn’t happen, Pacman can potentially fight Marquez, Provodnikov, Khan, Garcia, Porter, Broner, Matthysse etc over the next couple of years before he hangs ’em up. No shortage of good opponents at all.Posted May 26, 2014 6:33 am
Floyd and Manny are #1 and #2 P4P with Boxrec. Floyd Mayweather, take the fight. It’s against the other great boxing champion of the day at your natural weight, it’s the biggest pay day out there and we know you like money. It’s even one of your handles! Let’s get it on!!Posted May 26, 2014 6:28 am
@Auzbox…It’s common knowledge in the boxing circles you fool. Why do think PacMan at the beginning avoided taking the tests, and was negotiating the test times. Be smart when you talk you’ll get more respect. As far as me looking at his picture?? You must be a fagot for even bring that up…Have a nice day.Posted May 26, 2014 5:16 am
Ok slim you got evidence or just your dumb opinion. If you don’t have any evidence then you are just an imbecile. Once again let’s see floyd do a sixth. Beat it slim or even stop beating it to floyds pics you moronPosted May 26, 2014 4:35 am
@Auzbox…you idiot! of course Manny did 8 weight divisions he’s been roiding. Mayweather is 46-0 natural. Have a nice day!Posted May 26, 2014 4:31 am
Floyd is better than he looked against Maidana… I believe Floyd is still at his peak—but he doesn’t want to risk fighting a good prime boxer and never did…
You can’t point to one great undefeated prime boxer that Floyd ever fought… NOBODY like Porter, Thurman, or Brook who have well developed skills.
Canelo was only 22 when he signed for Floyd, at least 7 years from his peak knowledge and skills.. He was weight drained at 152.. Judah was getting his ass beat by losers like Baldomir when he fought Floyd.. Corrales was a punching bag who couldn’t defend… Hatton was a punching bag who couldn’t defend.. De La Hoya was on the slide.. Mosley was on the slide.. Cotto was a good prime boxer with good all-around skills — but not great… Trout beat Cotto as handily as Floyd did … and that showed everyone that Cotto wasn’t great either…
Marquez was an ATG at featherweight… and certainly no welterweight when he fought Floyd.Posted May 26, 2014 4:19 am
Pacquiao wasn’t offered 40 million… There was not contract guaranteeing him that amount… That’s just some BS Floyd pulled out of his ass.
Now that Floyd can’t call Pacquiao a cheater anymore because he’d have to pay more fines and damages… He has to come up with some other BS to say.Posted May 26, 2014 4:03 am
Everyone needs to have a good hard look at themself. Before floyd fought maidana everyone said floyd stops him and he isn’t even on the level but when maidana gives floyd all he could take you think maidana is a world beater. Come on he is khans bi#ch. floyd is on the decline and won’t fight top comp again. He and manny should both retirePosted May 26, 2014 1:32 am
Ohhhh it seems on this website only haters post on walls. You only pop up to bag. Manny beats a p4p top 3 and you all make excuses. Floyd is good but will never be the greatest not even top 5. To earn that he would need to beat a true middle and super mid. I mean manny has gone up 8 why not floydPosted May 26, 2014 1:24 am
I can finally conclude that you are a Floyd Mayweather fan, you constantly write about him bro!Posted May 26, 2014 1:10 am
And as for broner after PAC beats him you would just say he beat a lightweight bum which he is. A bumPosted May 26, 2014 12:27 am
Floyd fought Judah after a loss and fights guys at catch weightsPosted May 26, 2014 12:26 am
Manny natural weight as I said 135-140 met cotto in the middle Oscar in the middle. Killed cotto and the 7 pound made no difference what so ever. Floyd struggled with cotto manny pit him away like he would your motherPosted May 26, 2014 12:25 am
More people call floyd out, after what maidana did couldn’t even mark him hahahaha girly. PAC tosser once again floyd is a natural welter floyd isn’t he could still make 135 easy. Easy to call someone out when the Cold War is on. You would be that guy tough behind a fence I bet. Prov is way more dangerous than Marquez has ever been that’s why Marquez didn’t want a piece. Manny said he would fight canelo, balls manny hasPosted May 26, 2014 12:24 am

Lets compare resumes. Floyd fought Oscar, Cotto, Canelo at there natural weight not at 147, Manny beat guys coming off losses or have weight issues. You staed 40 million dollars wasnt enough for Pac but name one other fighter that will give him 40 million cash? Lets see what other big fight is in Mannys future? Marquez 5 and Ruslan no one wants to see either. Floyd, Danny Garcia, Broner have all called Manny out no one is afraid of him. Arum his master wont allow any fighters from Golden boy to face him Canelo would kill Manny. Hell Arum dont even want a Marquez 5 his hopes is he can continue to match Manny up with c-level fighters long enough to pressue Floyd into the fight in which He aka Arum would make a ton of money but it aint happening. Jews have been notorious sharks and no one will work with Arum Tehy had they chance in 09 and chose to walk away now Manny is broke….Posted May 26, 2014 12:19 am
But Thurman would have an excellent chance to beat Pacquiao.. The man is one HELL of a boxer and a real good puncher.. He’d give Floyd a rougher go than Maindana did.. Thurman is the real deal.
People said Cassius Clay wouldn’t beat Sonny Liston because he never fought anybody… Experience is good.. Natural talent to get the job done is better.
I like Porter, Thurman, and Brook a lot.. They’re all good.. 147 is hot right now.Posted May 26, 2014 12:14 am
Oh and again manny did 1 mill 3 fights ago so not to bad. Once again floyd loaded card also couldn’t do 1 mill LMAOPosted May 26, 2014 12:12 am
I’m not even sure thurman has called him out. I know he thinks he would beat him but he is a fighter of coarse he is going to say that. Thurman has beaten no body. At least Garcia has 1 or 2 names on his résumé but last time out a lot of people think he lost to a no body. Very un impressivePosted May 26, 2014 12:01 am
Oh and as for canelo, he can’t even make 154 anymore his next fight is for no title at 155. Manny is a natural 135-140 guy why would he fight a guy 8-9 divisions from where he started out. Floyd fought him yes but floyds natural weight was 7 pound from canelos and he made him drop to fivePosted May 25, 2014 11:59 pm
“Porter, Thurman, Garcia have all called Pac out. We won’t see these fights.”
I’m not sure… But I’m certain we won’t see Floyd fight them. They’re too good.Posted May 25, 2014 11:59 pm
Porter has never called out PAC so learn the facts they are great friends. As for Garcia he doesn’t beat PAC either. Thurman would beat Garcia. Your entitled to your opinion but manny is now top 3 p4p and to take it you gotta beat him. And saying guys from golden boy are calling him out is utter bs, no rival fight promoters are even thinking of fighting yet so stupid commentPosted May 25, 2014 11:57 pm
Who cares whether he ran out of gas he was the third best fighter on the planet. 725 is great numbers on his own floyd didn’t break 1 mill with a loaded card LMAO. Some fool said Marquez destroys PAC because of the Alvarado win, but beats prov. prov kills Marquez dead as Alvarado said and as I said he knows he has fought both.Posted May 25, 2014 11:54 pm
Auzbox who in the hell is Alvarado? He was nothing and who in the hell is Rios. Nether of these guys were even ranked. No one is even paying to see Manny fight these days hell the Bradley remtach only did 725,000 ppvs When is the last time Manny had 1 million views? Bradley I give Manny credit for the win but it was unimpressive he looked very beatable. Timothy ran out of gas plus he cannot punch and still was winning the fight. Manny is not the same and he hasnt been tested after his KO. Let him fight Marquez 5 and win convincingly before you suck his cock. Canelo would destroy Manny. Thurman is green and unproven I give you that. Porter Thurman, Danny Garcia have all called Pac out but we will never see these fights.Posted May 25, 2014 11:29 pm
Yeh Teflon rios is a sh it bag but he stopped Alvarado so who cares how Marquez looked haha LMAO Alvarado is just as big a punching bag as rios only worse cause Alvarado couldn’t even go 12 their first time outPosted May 25, 2014 10:05 pm
Prov killed Alvarado and would kill Marquez as Alvarado said and he would know he has been in with bothPosted May 25, 2014 9:57 pm
You can discredit Bradley all you want. Mayweather struggled with a guy that isn’t ranked top 25 p4p. Manny whips number 3. Thurman is untested and has no chance against PAC. Garcia would get whipped. He couldn’t even dominate against a bum in his own country. Once the Cold War ends all fights will be open slather accept the mayweather fight cause he is no ones fighter.Posted May 25, 2014 9:56 pm
Alvarado is a muppet. Who cares how Marquez looked. Was dropped and couldn’t even get a stoppagePosted May 25, 2014 9:51 pm
He looked deflated yet still beat the 3rd best on the planet. Hate to see what he does when he fights his best if he dominated Bradley looking deflated.Posted May 25, 2014 9:50 pm
I’m the second best fighter in the world and afraid to fight #1.
Azzbox I know your a Manny nutt hugger but ya boy looked a little winded in the rematch with Bradley guy. Wasn’t impressed at all and Bradley cant punch for sht he hits like a girl. To say Manny is back is reaching he hasnt been tested since getting KTFO by JMM Rios was another sht bag. Ruslan is another nobody Mannys old starring partner Arum can manipulate to make Manny look good. Top rank have sht fighters. Manny faces any of the guys from Golden boy they will drop him like a bad habit. Tim was ranked number 3 but he has no skills and no punch. You talk all this Floyd crap when Manny hasnt proven anything and Arum runs the show. No one is afraid of Pac everyone has called him out but you honeslty think Arum will let his Golden goose loose hell no never….Posted May 25, 2014 8:26 pm
Not on your life. PAC just doninated a #3 p4p Marquez was dropped by a guy rated outside the top 100. Arum wanted prov v Marquez but Marquez wanted no part of the Siberian rocky hahahaPosted May 25, 2014 8:07 pm
Arum wants no parts of Marquez 5. JMM will destroy your boy Manny. Oscar is trying to work out a fight between Canelo and Manny either one of these guys will kill Pac he can for get about Floyd….Posted May 25, 2014 7:32 pm
Forget jmm he affraid anyway. Bring on the young fighter. May the best man win.Posted May 25, 2014 3:53 pm
Obbie prov is more dangerous than thurman. He is green and he doesn’t beat pac on his best day, thurman is untested and until he is bold predictions are pointless.Posted May 25, 2014 3:23 pm
Top Rank’s CEO, Bob Arum, says there are several options for Manny Pacquiao’s first defense of the reclaimed WBO welterweight title on November 8th in Macau. The number one option is a fifth fight with former four division champion Juan Manuel Marquez.
A good backup option is WBO junior welterweight champion Ruslan Provodnikov, who uses Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach. Since Arum is now on good terms with Golden Boy Promotions President, Oscar De La Hoya, a longshot possibility is British star Amir Khan, who used to be Pacquiao’s stablemate under Roach.
“Juan Manuel has not committed yet to the fight. I’ll have the opportunity to speak with him maybe as soon as next week because I invited Juan Manuel and his wife to come to Macau so we have plenty of time to discuss it,” Arum told ABS CBN News. “Ruslan is fighting on June 14 on HBO. It will be shown in the Philippines and so he is also a potential opponent.”
“We will see which of these welterweights have been fighting for Golden Boy or on the contract to Golden Boy that Oscar can produce. Once we learn that, we can review those fighters. It could be Amir Khan. Canelo [Alvarez] is fighting too late. He’s fighting in July. So for November, Canelo wouldn’t be right. But maybe sometime next year.”Posted May 25, 2014 2:33 pm
SREDMOND Arum hold a lot of clout at HBO they only deal with him show time is shut out. If arum say he can fight GBP fighters logic say its too dangerous to say you can if you have not check if you can. Or you end up looking like a fool. I belive arum and oscar more that Richard who was lieing all this time and Floyd another guys who tell lies all the time. Watch want to bet something comes up?Posted May 25, 2014 2:27 pm
SREDMOND, did you hear what I said its official arum he said he wanting for the list of fighter Oscar can provide to fight penny in sept. remember it’s was Oscar idea to open up fighter, and he the boss.
He already put Richard in his place on twitter after they both stop talking for a few week that mean they were in a argument over this decussion, and Oscar said in short work that he still the boss and he going to take more responsibility on his company, and it’s was he and I that stop talk with arum.
So Richard when ask about it, said well I guess I was the guilty guy.
So in others words Oscar need to put out the list or he all mouth. Logic say he put out a list. bet ya.
Pac Man is NOT facing Porter or Thurman unless this Cold War between GBP and Top Rank ends, then there are the Network issues have to be ironed out (HBO and Showtime) Manny is gonna face Provo or Marquez next, after that its gonna get laughable…. Arum had been discussing Garcia (Mikey) coming up in weight…Posted May 25, 2014 1:51 pm
Bob Arum is Fu**ing things up.Posted May 25, 2014 1:37 pm
obbieman, I belive Garcia still a jr WW at 140 lb he been talking about move up. And if Oscar include Thurman in the list and khan Khan would get first pick because of 3 factors. Then Thurman would get pick. What it is that PAC has 83 fight total floyd has 56 fight total PAC has 17 more fight than Floyd. Floyd was retired when PAC was eliminating the Mexican slugger/boxer.
Mike Tyson, but do u agree pac should take porters belt and try and fight floyd in a unification belt of all 4 titles and the ring belt?
Porter my 2th favorite I’ve pick early, about 8 years ago. But yes why not. The best fight the best, PAC can’t ruined porter and if not its about passing the torch the better fighter,
Peej and raymond are going to eat their word. LOL as long as they admit they were wrong and arum not protecting manny it’s cool.Posted May 25, 2014 12:32 pm
We are “lulled” these days by fights we see and the way the “elite” are brought along. These days with information being so readily available promoters have access to view guys that can put -up good fights against their meal tickets , but just lose by a bit. This almost backfired with Adonis last night. But as I mentioned BEFORE the fight – NO ONE has tested his chin and or stamina. Sooner or later you gotta fight a name – or a contender. There are guys who do and guys who don’t. Say what you will about Broner – he took on Maidana / lost, but took him on anyway ! Amir Khan, will fight anyone, Marquez, Mares, these are fighters who do not care about losing just about good fights.
Thurmann ? Who has he really fought ? I like the guy but no one has ever hit him. Elite guys will hit him – How do you judge a guy and call him an elite fighter if you’ve never seen him “IN A FIGHT “Posted May 25, 2014 10:31 am
If Pacquiao thinks he can mix it up with the real welterweights, he should fight, Keith Thurman, Danny Garcia, and Mayweather. Thurman will knock him out. He might beat Garcia if he doesn’t get ko’ed by a wild left hook first, and will be outclassed by Mayweather. Love Pacman but he shouldn’t fight these three. Instead, go for Provo who he can’t ko but he could outpoint.Posted May 25, 2014 10:16 am
What about Danny Garcia? Do you guys even know who Danny Garcia is? Is he still relevant in the welterweight division?Posted May 25, 2014 10:05 am
Mike Tyson, but do u agree pac should take porters belt and try and fight floyd in a unification belt of all 4 titles and the ring belt?Posted May 25, 2014 10:04 am
Prov wod be good one for porter then we could see how good porter is with someone with power. Many good fights out there for the future. Boxingdictionary.com. The language of the ringPosted May 25, 2014 9:15 am
Pacquaio should be able to handle Provodnikov at this point because Manny is gonna be leery of a high contact fight and he can keep Provo honest… Slugging and stopping Alvarado is different than a “take 3 to give 1″ fighter to defeat Manny PPosted May 25, 2014 8:34 am
I like this guy and I think he wod have no problem with either pacquiao or Marquez I think the two others have had it with their careers especially packman. Boxingdictionary.cpm the language of the ringPosted May 25, 2014 8:26 am
I could see Pac/Provodnikov being a super brutal war. I’d rather see this than a fifth Marquez fight but Provodnikov is definitely the more dangerous fight for Manny. I also wouldn’t be totally shocked if Provodnikov put Manny away.Posted May 25, 2014 6:36 am
Prov is the most dangerous for PAC and would want to stay away from his power, hopefully he fights Marquez and prov beats a big, or as big a name he can and make a big main event fight between PAC and prov. But from all reports they are close friends so we will see.Posted May 25, 2014 6:10 am

Gangas khan vs PAC. Will there be action? Of course . Will a pure slugger do PAC in? Can PAC show he above a maidana type fighter? Will he be ko Ed ? Or will he rise above and they will say he too green.Posted May 24, 2014 9:24 pm

poor pacturds. You keep saying manny had a hard time with rio. That the problem watch the whole fight . The high light are the best punches in a few round. PAC beat rio 90% when ever He. Charge in and beat him inside and slip away untouched .
Now Floyd who fight you will see maidana has many punches on Floyd .Posted May 24, 2014 9:04 pm
Manny can KO Provo within 8 rounds. Provo is overrated. He made his name by standing toe-to-toe with another Top Rank overrated fighter in Bradley.
Manny should fight and beat Canelo and/or Maidana and/or Cotto without catchweight if he wants to measure up with Floyd. But we all know that won’t happen. Pac is the most coward fighter who is the most successful in making himself look brave. He seldom fights without stipulations to his advantage. Cherry picks geriatrics and draining them.

“He used to give Manny [Pacquiao] a drink every day before we worked out and I asked him, ‘What’s in that drink,’ and he would never tell me. And I said, ‘I need to know what’s in that drink because, you know, you’re giving it to my fighter and if something goes wrong, I’m gonna get the blame.’ In my opinion, he’s a little shady,”
THIS TELLS YOU ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THAT CAMP AND WE ALL RECALL WHEN FREDDIE MADE THE SAME EXCUSES WHEN FORTUNE AND TONEY WERE BUSTED UNDER HIS WATCH FOR THE SAME THING.Posted May 24, 2014 5:38 pm
Poor pacturds who can Manny have a style that scared Floyd when Marquez a flat footed 40 year old had no trouble KOing him? Bradley had no troubles with Manny either. I guess Bradley and Marquez is somehow better than Floyd? Rios had no troubles with Manny either. Pac looked winded and old in the rematch with Bradley no one is afraid of Pac his Jew slave master owns his ass and he is throwing him into the lions den of top rape bums. Manny fights any Golden boy fighter he gets his ass kicked also Arum is steering clear from Marquez 5.Posted May 24, 2014 5:31 pm

Manny and Provodnikov are good friends, and hopefully they will stay away from each other. Friendships, especially those developed inside a boxing ring will last forever. These are to quality honest decent people that happen to be great fighters. MannY Pacquiao is the much greater of the two and has proven it over the years. Provodnikov learned his trade sparring and training with the greatest pure fighter of all time. Why do you think Provodnikov is such a fighting machine inside the ring. Manny taught him well as he also taught another great champion, Shawn Porter. Manny Pacquiao has his finger prints all over boxing. Porter also trained and sparred with Manny Pacquiao for years, and it looks like Manny Pacquiao’s incredible talent rubbed off on him also. I think it’s about time all boxing fans give Manny Pacquiao his just due. Manny is a role model for all people. Everything he manages to touch ends up becoming better. Porter and Provodnikov are two perfect examples of the magic Manny Pacquiao has. Liddel Rhodes from the Mayweather camp said it best. “I can’t see his punches coming. Manny is the smartest fighter and the most physically gifted fighter I have ever worked with.” I don’t think I have to say anymore. Manny Pacquiao is a special fighter that will go down in history as the greatest pure fighter in history, and I believe most boxing observers would agree with me. Look at what he has accomplished. Listen to the top fighters and champions that have worked with him. They praise Manny like no other. * world titles, and maybe a 9th coming. Whta more do you need to see or hear to classify him as the greatest ever. Speed, power, athleticism, heart, stamina, defense, offense, great movement. Manny Pacquiao has it all and has done it all. He destroyed Ped Man Marquez for 3 fights and was well on his way to a clear victory before the acne laced, muscle bound, tantrum filled lucky punch lamded. He destroyed the great Erik Morales. He destroyed the great Miguel Cotto. He destroyed the great Marco Antonio Barrera. He destroyed the tough Ricky Hatton, He destroyed the fierce cheating Antonio Margarito. He destroyed the legendary Oscar de La Hoya. I can go on and on. Manny Pacquiao needs to be observed for his incredible fighting skills. This is not a regular fighter, but a man that took the sport of boxing onhis shoulders and elevated it to a peak that has never been reached. I applaud Manny Pacquiao for never changing who he is. Trust me on this, like him or not, you cannot deny his greatness. Manny is the best.Posted May 24, 2014 4:20 pm
Pacman biggest fights comes from Arum. Floyd is just a boxer. One boxer! Let Floyd makes GBP rich while fighting B level fighter. He can fight who he picks! Floyd is getting old and have a boring style of fighting. He can’t fight manny because he knows he will loss and get embarrass. If Floyd is that great let him fight manny in the ring and settle the difference.Posted May 24, 2014 3:28 pm
Manny is a wash and Arum knows it he looked like sht in the rematch with Bradley and they want no parts of Marquez 5 because Manny will get KTFO again…Posted May 24, 2014 3:18 pm
Arum is a Jew and they dont like blacks, The one who is being shorted is Manny he has no big fights in his future Floyd is it, Floyd simply will never bow to Aarum he made 300 million since leaving top rank. Floyd made 70 million fighting Marcos alone, Manny fight will be no bigger than Canelo which was the highest paid boxing match ever. Manny again is broke and in IRS troubles Floyd on the other hand sells out Vegas, He will fight Kahn next and bring more 100 million easy. There is no benefit in making the Jew richer and bowing to him people cant stand a black man with that much power.Posted May 24, 2014 3:14 pm

Ok. Independent it’s Floyd manage himself throught Floyd production, but he has to go through GBP or top rank as even hymon has ton of fighter he manage going through GBP as the networks HBO and show time will only deal with these two. Now it’s HBO only deal with top rank.
And wrong arum is open to fighting with GBP fighter but richard the CEO has even admitted he will not work with arum just last month Oscar made him admit it’s was he not Oscar that stop dealing with arum. So GBP have publicly admitted it was they side that stop fight for going forward,
but I Admit arum is a shark and he old old style, that sharp and dangerous and a money rat like Floyd.Posted May 24, 2014 3:07 pm
Kareem Ruslan is a top rank fighter like Manny, Bradley and others, problem is top rank only fights with top rank. Floyd cannot sign a contract to fight Manyy because Arum wont allow it , You will never see any one the top rank fighter fight outside of top rank. Arum has total control on who his fighters fight. Manny has been called out by everyone but you will never see these fights moron contracts control everything Floyd is independent but Arum decides who they fight same way Bradley could never get a shot.Posted May 24, 2014 2:48 pm
At least Provodnikov would sign a contract to fight Manny unlike Floyd Scaredy cat GayweatherPosted May 24, 2014 2:41 pm
Aarum and top rank have no good fighters and no one to match with Manny they need FloydPosted May 24, 2014 2:37 pm
A Garcia, PAC is champ of top rank now, jmm lost to Bradley, who was champ, and PAC reclaim the belt beating Bradley. who beaten some very good fighter of top rank, the offer on the table for Marquezbut he don’t want this fight, so he stay below Bradley in top rank.
No unless the other half of champ of GBP take the fight forget arum, prov is just a cleanup fight.
Really? I could teach him a thing or two. The truth will make you free.
WTF does Floyd have to do with Prov. being a potential opponent for Pac? If Marquez doesn’t accept Pac fight , Pac will fight Alvarado. You have to remember the little WBO tourney Arum made up . Marquez forfeits and Alavarado next in line. Arum already knows Pacs next opponent, any other name he brings up is just to promote Pac . Pac fans need to understand Arums intentions, its great to be a Pac
Haha so Cotto and Khan made names for themselves AFTER sparring Pacquiao??Posted May 24, 2014 1:34 pm
arum is just running his mouth. he know as well as i do that pacquiao is not going to get in the ring with provodnikov. provodnikov would kill pacquiao. arum is just trying to stay relevantPosted May 24, 2014 1:17 pm
Really that show manny for real. Can you name one of Floyd sparing partner that make a name for themself and got recognized as a contender?
PAC sparing partner, Shawn porter, prov the Russian, Dias,Khan,Kendal holt, cotto, and ton of unbeaten young fighter, almost all made a name for Themself.
Pacquiao should grow a pair and challenge Thurman, Porter or step up and face Lara. Pac is a cherry picker.
Sound good but ever heard of the cold war hear in boxing, the two boxing promoters are not dealing. And if they did Floyd vs PAC are first in line. But Oscar and arum are trying to work some fight out but then then HBO is not dealing with GBP for some reason.
Bad style match up imo. Provodkinov would get Magarito’d for the whole twelve rounds lol. Flatfooted fighters seem to be Manny’s specialty..Posted May 24, 2014 12:40 pm
pac should be going for shawn porters IBF belt. that makes the fight with floyd even more appealing. cmon all 4 world titles and the ring belt? thats perfect. instead he wants to face his sparring partner…
That funny, they both his sparing partner, porter beaten axexander up badly. And PAC had Floyd sparing partner in as his sparing partner in the preparing for Bradley, and roach said he did beat his sparing partner up. Remember , roach offers 1 k bonus to show he want 100% hard effort and body knock PAC down collect that 1 k. And both of these sparing partner said PAC ko Bradley show he blew pass them.
It’s about styles PAC can face a slugger or a boxer he adapt as he should,Posted May 24, 2014 12:35 pm
Spooky, surely it’s for the promotor to worry about the PPV figures? If it’s a fight the majority of true fight fans would like to see it can only be good? It’s not ‘THE’ fight the fans want to see but as that won’t happen it is a fight I’d like to watch.Posted May 24, 2014 12:23 pm
Manny should blast out Floyds future opponents. I mean, Maidana, Khan, and Danny Garcia are being hyped as some sort of hungry lions. I think Manny would do a number on any of them, in style. Then Floyd will have to fight him or take a risk elsewhere.Posted May 24, 2014 12:20 pm
Nooooo! this would be an exciting fight but this is not the fight the fans want. The PPV numbers will be low. Ruslan is not a house hold name.Posted May 24, 2014 12:03 pm

Would like to see this fight but future options look slim for Pacquiao. Also not entirely convinced Pacquiao will be able to get through this fight unscathed. Provodnikov is a huge puncher and Pacquiao would need to hit and move the whole 12 rounds to get through the fight.Posted May 24, 2014 10:16 am
more promotional posturing by Arum. otherwise, Pacquiao* is never going to face an unknown but legitimate contender for relative peanuts. Arum is simply exploiting the promise of action-packed to attract attention and position himself as wanting matchups he’ll never confirm for Pacquiao*. Manny* has no intention of seriously campaigning as a welter. only collecting every low-risk/high return matchup that Arum can impose on the division and sport of boxing.Posted May 24, 2014 10:00 am

Unless Whine Memo-el Marpiss man up and take VADA testing, the fight against Pac is a foregone conclusion–a defeat. Heck, it took a Memo to finally tally one. Marpiss will always have an asterisk on his career since after Pac 3. He can, from now in, take another Chris Johns in the jungles of Borneo for a pittance. Serves the eternal whiner and cheater right. >:(

Boxtradamus now says he wants Floyd to forget Maidana and take on the KING of Argentina, Sergio Martinez, for the MW Championship of the World… but at the same time Floyd isn’t big enough to defend his 154lb title against GGG, who says he could make that weight for the fight. What a foolish, clueless Floyd-worshipping dolt you are, Boxtradamus!!…just more proof there’s a lot of people out there who haven’t the sense they were born with and that empty vessels make the most noise!!

So, out of one side of Bob Arum’s mouth he lies about trying to make a fight with Mayweather and out the other side of his mouth he will pay Provodnikov a bonus fee to get in the ring with Pac and make him look good, without really trying to hurt him as per the small print of all Top Rank fighter contracts clearly states:
‘thou shalt not defeat Manny, my prize cash cow, under any circumstances. Thou is only the B side to make Pac look good. Capice?’Posted May 24, 2014 4:24 am
Good thing he did make him change his gloves. Dirty as Maidana was fighting, hitting behind the head, below the belt. Corner man telling him to fight dirty…gimme a break. He should have points taken for that bush league performance. Go to bar room with that crap…Posted May 24, 2014 4:21 am

Calm down ladies Floyd is going to fight Manny before he retires he knows it.

Arum has no fighters and no one wants to see Marquez 5 or Ruslan who is Mannys old sparring partner. Arum is out of options and fighters at this point.

The Bradley/Prov fight was a great fight. Best fight I seen Bradley in for years.
One of the stand-outs for me was watching Bradley counter-punch and come of age and respect to both of them because it was in the top 3 fight of the year.
But Bradley and Prov are not in Pacquiao’s league and neither are either of them P4P #1 contenders for Floyd.
Prov is tailor made for Pacquaio and Mayweather and Bradley is the same.Posted May 24, 2014 1:07 am
Bears told everyone Maidana was a plodder and he is.
Those of us who knew, said Marcos would push Floyd back all night.
Floyd won a UD, Marcos done what he done.
Bears is still all over Manny’s mangina having been given Arums Trifecta of Jmm, Rios and Timothy …. ?????
Bears is capable of making us blush and giggle like girls!

Maidana can talk all he wants but tell him to learn how to land a GOOD legal punch. Grazing shots cannot WIN unless you know how to make your opponent MISS alot. Then grazing shots trump not hitting the man at all. But grazing shots LOSE vs. CLEAN shots everyday of the MILLENIUM….unless you’ve got 3 blind MICE. TOO bad for Maidana that only ONE judge was blind. The other 2 judges saw the Fight real GOOD.Posted May 23, 2014 9:24 pm
Floyd did FINE with the slugger. HE made him land a bunch of illegal shots that don’t count on the scorecards. He retaliated with CLEAN shots to the FACE and STERNUM for the lopsided WIN. I’d say that there’s not MUCH that Manny can teach Floyd…..except on how to get knocked out by running IN.Posted May 23, 2014 9:21 pm
Maidana said today the Floyd is afraid of me and will not give me a rematch . That a strong statement .
Jmm not fighting PAC again. Even his trainer said he going to do everything in his power to stop jmm. He has no need jmm don’t want the fight
Yes boxtra prov is just the type of fighter Floyd that make him look normal. High pressure and non stop punching would flollow Floyd around like a puppy dog.

Is Provodnikov even a CHAMP?? At this point in Manny’s career he needs to be facing either CHAMPS or Top 10 P4P Fighters. Provodnikov is not qualified. We all know that Manny WINS that one LOPSIDEDLY. Provodnikov won’t even his trainer.Posted May 23, 2014 8:51 pm
I figured Provodnikov would be next in line. Either him or Maidana. It’s a good match-up. While Floyd and Pac seem to be running out of opponents, I’m starting to see it a little differently now. Both are basically going on with their careers as if the other doesn’t exist, and the truth is that if one or the other didn’t exist, we wouldn’t see it as them running out of opponents, we’d see it as that fighter has cleaned out the division. The reason we keep seeing it as if they are running out of opponents is because we keep counting the opponents down hoping they will run out of them and fight each other. Only thing is that together they don’t hold all the WW titles, and as long as that’s the case, there are opponents for them to fight. Not to mention champions at light WW who may come up in weight to fight them. That brings a lot of faces into the picture.Posted May 23, 2014 8:20 pm

What is good is that fans are not showing the kind of support that they had for both fighters in two of their last three fights. So its should be a humbling experience for both. The pressure is on both Mayweather and Pacquiao to show they have the support of fans. Time for fans as well to show support for provo, or porter, or thurman. This is the only way to tell both mayweather and pacquiao that, no, you do not own the world of boxing.Posted May 23, 2014 8:12 pm

Arum just showed he has other options other than Floyd. Life goes on. Business is business. Let’s move on. Its not the end of the (boxing) world if floyd – pacquiao will not be made. Let’s just see how, prior to their retirement, who get fans more excited. Tired of hearing this fight that we all know will never happen. In two years, hopefully, both have retired, and new stars have emerged in boxing. While these two are still there, new stars are not emerging and not getting the attention they deserve.Posted May 23, 2014 8:05 pm

LMAO! Pacquiao is so great he can fight ready made in-house opponents. But Mayweather is such a cherry-picking fraud he must fight guys bigger than him at the down turn of his career, despite reigning his whole career and beating undefeated, P4P, and HOF fighters. And Mayweather has no right to make demands despite being the number one boxer in the world and the number one financial draw. Nobody dare demand Pacquiao take a drug test, but Pacquiao can demand his opponents do so without him do so himself. Arum can pull dirty tactics to protect his cash cow, but Floyd can’t make any boxing decisions without it being criticized. The problem with haters is their reasoning is completely illogical.Posted May 23, 2014 6:31 pm

OK @$$#ole… check it out… You’ve perused this site enough and have read enough of my posts to at least pick up some knowledge here or there from some REAL boxing fans….. But have you ever heard the expression, “styles makes fights”.
Floyd’s bread and butter is to fight slick guys with no power, or powerful guys who plod straight forward….. Since he’s feasted on the lot… I think a Bradley fight could potentially see how Floyd would do against a slick boxer type. Sure Bradley doesn’t have the power to sting Floyd… but it would be a great barometer to me.
OK, Smarty-pants… Who should your Boi Floyd fight instead? Who should Manny fight instead? There aren’t a helluva lot of options out there for either.Posted May 23, 2014 6:19 pm
Bradley for Floyd?
Just got beat by Pacquiao, having apprentaly robbed him in the first fight … got slapped by Prov for how many rounds …

Come here sweetheart ……. I need to whisper this in your ear …..
@HHLONDON – OUCH!!! that hurts… LMMFAO.. How old are you? Did my words hurt your wittle feelings or something? Did I do something to you? I thought this was a forum for debate amongst boxing fans. Did you disagree with something I said? Why? Let’s debate, lets use our words to formulate complete sentences and try and prove a point. Quit with the little-kid $#!T and the name calling. OK, you’re a FloMO, and that’s OK. My mother told me to try an accept everyone, even if they’re morons…Posted May 23, 2014 6:10 pm
I can’t understand a word you are saying when you’ve got Manny’s little ball-sack hanging out of your mouth!
Jimmy Kimmel in a gimp suit hanging over your shoulder is not helping either ;-)Posted May 23, 2014 6:06 pm
“Providnikov is not Clottey.
Clottey had a relatively low knockout percentage.
Clottey did not let his hands go.
Clottey was not fast.
Providnikov has a good — although not great — but good (MAIDANA) knockout percentage.”

Providnikov is not Clottey.
Clottey had a relatively low knockout percentage.
Clottey did not let his hands go.
Clottey was not fast.
Providnikov has a good — although not great — but good knockout percentage.
Providnikov lets his hands go and throws good combinations — particularly in his last 2-3 fights.
Providnikov has pretty fast hands.
I would agree that Manny Pacquiao would be showing heart, toughness, and courage taking on Providnikov.
Pacquiao has not had a knockout win in like 5 years while Providnikov has been putting real hurt on fighters in the last 18 months. There seems to be good reason to do this fight — it is high risk. The public does not really know Providnikov.
And if Manny loses … it really destroys Manny Pacquiao’s career. It could be a very damaging fight to Pacquiao.
I think Mayweather would beat Pacquiao. I think Mayweather is technically better than Pacquiao. But I think Pacquiao is great for boxing. And I want to see Pacquiao in great fights. But this could be very damaging.Posted May 23, 2014 5:43 pm
And yes… since the so-called Cold War is ending, let’s see what FMJ would do against Tiny Timothy Bradley… That’s a decent barometer… Don’t ya think?Posted May 23, 2014 5:42 pm
Idiots…. Bob Arum is a big fat idiot… yes… but do people really believe he’s the reason the MP vs Maytwitter fight’s not happening?!?!?!? Seriously people????
Bob’s not holding up this fight. And since Manny’s stock has dipped a little over the years, he’s doesn’t have much of a negotiating leg to stand on. Manny is the B side, sorry to say…. But at this point Manny would do ‘almost’ anything to finally get Floyd in the ring.
“Well he should’a left Bob Arum if he really wanted to fight Floyd.” BS!!!! It shows loyalty. No one knows the exact reason Manny resigned with Uncle Bob, but whatever his reasons are, he’s the only one who’s got to live with it. ANd what’s the say Floyd wouldn’t try to undermine Manny at the negotiating table? What’s the say Floyd wouldn’t find some other cockamamie excuse after that. Manny did what was best for Manny.
If he takes on Provo, I would tip my hat to him. Manny doesn’t have to take on such stiff competition. He could go the easy route and take on Guerrero or pull Victor Ortiz outta semi-retirement again, or better yet… Let’s scoop up Carlos Baldomir for a showdown with Manny, or maybe Chop Chop Corley is still available…Posted May 23, 2014 5:35 pm
floyd vs ruslan! the cold war is endingPosted May 23, 2014 5:29 pm
Get lost Arun, the fans don’t want Pacquiao vs Provodnikov. Find someone else, but FMJ is my fisrt choice if you don’t mind.Posted May 23, 2014 5:18 pm
No SALE, Don’t believe Arum would put Pacquaio in harms way for peanuts. Provodinikov is a wrecking machine and Manny as of late can be hit. Pacquiao admitted that Rios tagged him, and I can’t even remember Rios landing a punch. Bradley hit him but has no power. Provodinikov has power in both hands and he keeps coming forward. C’mon Uncle Bob if you can’t give us Pacquiao vs Mayweather, give us something like that. Give us Broner vs Pacquiao it will be the closest thing to Floyd you can get.Posted May 23, 2014 5:16 pm
Now, Provo vs. Manny is a more interesting fight than Marquez 5. The only good that could ever come out of that fight is a JMM KO by Manny. But we’ve seen these chapters already, and from the last fight, one ‘lucky’ punch can end it all.
Either case, I think Manny should step up to the plate and take on this fearsome, younger challenger. This is what makes a fighter GREAT! Taking on the best, taking on the more difficult fighter, not taking the path of least resistance, not DUCKING challenges…. this is what separates the SO_CALLED TBE and the REAL WARRIORS that show Intestinal Fortitude.
Some of you are right, Manny would be risking a lot against a much younger opponent… But so what… this is what makes Manny special. He wants to go toe to toe, he wants to give the fans a memorable fight, he wants to show his heart and he doesn’t mind taking a L if it means, he’s accomplished the lot. This is what makes a REAL CHAMPION!!!Posted May 23, 2014 5:15 pm
Jinky, look good in her bikini.Posted May 23, 2014 5:13 pm
Love The Sport,
You’re implying Pacquiao is not a smart fighter and has still has something to prove and could possibly get sucked into the fight Bradley did, which was Bradley’s stupidity for believing he had something to prove following the Pacquiao “win”.
Prodnikov is another Joshua Clottey only slightly more live today than Clottey was when he was paid to sytand there and get hit by Arum and his buddy (who paid him extra for doing such a good stooge act) Jerry whathisname.Posted May 23, 2014 5:12 pm
Gangas khan vs a pino.Posted May 23, 2014 5:11 pm
Floyd has trouble with pressure fighter, he so used to the 1-2 punch boys that he can counter and they fold and retreat. He running out of those easy fighters, what to do?Posted May 23, 2014 5:10 pm
Just me and HHLondon … you guys actually don’t watch the fights right?
You guys obviously did not see Bradley vs. Providnikov?
Right … did you guys see that fight or not?
Comment please — because a lot of people would say Bradley gave Pacquiao a lot of movement, a lot of angles and 2 good tough fights.
While Providnikov hit Bradley so hard, he still has a concussion from that fight because your current comments border on “caveman” like grunts.
Why don’t you explain your really insightful comments in regards to Providnikov vs. Bradley?Posted May 23, 2014 5:09 pm
Prov a maidana type, lets punch it out, just the type to make Floyd scream, want prov Floyd?
Prodnikov is a punch bag. Text book for Pacquiao.Posted May 23, 2014 5:05 pm
For those of you who don’t get my humor …
And for those of you who didn’t see Bradley vs. Provodnikov …
And for those of you who somehow didn’t see Pacquiao vs. Marquez IV …
Provodnikov has a very good chance to knock Pacquiao into retirement.
This is a great fight for boxing but an absolutely stupid fight for Manny Pacquiao.
I am calling on Jinky to get involved.
This is nuts.
If Pacquiao vs. Provoknikov goes forward there is no chance for Pacquiao vs Mayweather.
Help us Jinky … Stop Bob Arum.Posted May 23, 2014 4:45 pm
Hi … My name is Bob Arum and I am so old and so greedy and so delusional that I willing to put one of the greatest boxers in the history of the sport in the ring with a crazy tough Russian guy with huge power.
If Manny Pacquiao loses to Provodnikov … well … so what. Mayweather wasn’t going to fight Pacquiao anyway.
I just want to make money.
I …. A M … O O O O L L D D … A N D … I … W A N T … T O … MAAAKE …. M OOOOOOOON EEEEEEY

Manny and Provodnikov are good friends, and hopefully they will stay away from each other. Friendships, especially those developed inside a boxing ring will last forever. These are to quality honest decent people that happen to be great fighters. MannY Pacquiao is the much greater of the two and has proven it over the years. Provodnikov learned his trade sparring and training with the greatest pure fighter of all time. Why do you think Provodnikov is such a fighting machine inside the ring. Manny taught him well as he also taught another great champion, Shawn Porter. Manny Pacquiao has his finger prints all over boxing. Porter also trained and sparred with Manny Pacquiao for years, and it looks like Manny Pacquiao’s incredible talent rubbed off on him also. I think it’s about time all boxing fans give Manny Pacquiao his just due. Manny is a role model for all people. Everything he manages to touch ends up becoming better. Porter and Provodnikov are two perfect examples of the magic Manny Pacquiao has. Liddel Rhodes from the Mayweather camp said it best. “I can’t see his punches coming. Manny is the smartest fighter and the most physically gifted fighter I have ever worked with.” I don’t think I have to say anymore. Manny Pacquiao is a special fighter that will go down in history as the greatest pure fighter in history, and I believe most boxing observers would agree with me. Look at what he has accomplished. Listen to the top fighters and champions that have worked with him. They praise Manny like no other. * world titles, and maybe a 9th coming. Whta more do you need to see or hear to classify him as the greatest ever. Speed, power, athleticism, heart, stamina, defense, offense, great movement. Manny Pacquiao has it all and has done it all. He destroyed Ped Man Marquez for 3 fights and was well on his way to a clear victory before the acne laced, muscle bound, tantrum filled lucky punch lamded. He destroyed the great Erik Morales. He destroyed the great Miguel Cotto. He destroyed the great Marco Antonio Barrera. He destroyed the tough Ricky Hatton, He destroyed the fierce cheating Antonio Margarito. He destroyed the legendary Oscar de La Hoya. I can go on and on. Manny Pacquiao needs to be observed for his incredible fighting skills. This is not a regular fighter, but a man that took the sport of boxing onhis shoulders and elevated it to a peak that has never been reached. I applaud Manny Pacquiao for never changing who he is. Trust me on this, like him or not, you cannot deny his greatness. Manny is the best.Posted May 23, 2014 4:28 pm
Maybe be a good fight, but all this in house fighting seriously takes the shine off such match-ups..Posted May 23, 2014 4:17 pm
Either one would knock Pac TFO.Posted May 23, 2014 4:12 pm
Brazilian Boxing Fan to Freddie Roach
You are probably not the real Freddie Roach, but what you posted made sense.Posted May 23, 2014 4:04 pm
Ruslan was Mannys old sparring partner no sale just like Marquez 5 people need to boycott Arum until he makes the Floyd fight happen the people have spoken…Posted May 23, 2014 3:59 pm
I won’t allow my fighters to fight each other.
I say this today to you, and I really believe it, and it’s true… that since Ali, there hasn’t been a better fight, a better boxer, than this kid, PRETTY BOY FLOYD MAYWEATHER. This young man has the technique and the ability which puts him, in my book, ahead of such greats as SUGAR RAY LEONARD, ROBERTO DURAN, MARVIN HAGLER and ALL the other great fighters I’ve seen in my career, but there is nobody that combines all the skills of PRETTY BOY FLOYD MAYWEATHER.
Don’t believe me? Go to youtube and search for…
Bob Arum – Pacquiao’s promoter, “Mayweather is the GREATEST!”
… if you need to see me say it on video.Posted May 23, 2014 3:56 pm
Would be a good fight.Posted May 23, 2014 3:53 pm
That’s a fight I’d like to see — a lot more than Pacquiao-Marquez V, frankly.Posted May 23, 2014 3:25 pm
This should be the first choice instead of MarquezPosted May 23, 2014 3:02 pm
