The MGM “half empty” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Its sold out and packed with celebrities and high rollers when Mayweather fights… 80’000 construction workers and sheep herders is simply not as impressive!

Posted June 6, 2014 11:10 am 


Froch putting 80,000 people in seats paying $50 a ticket is NICE but does NOT compare to the insane live gate at the MGM $20 million dollars A RECORD and the biggest dogs in the country out to see the Grandmaster do his business..

Posted June 5, 2014 4:48 pm 


HaHaHaHaHa Mayweather draws MORE paying customers than anyone! 2.2 million people tuned in from home to watch him SCHOOL Canelo and spent 20 million on the live gate (a record) there is no one like Money May…

Bears, even Tark who you have been blowing and swallowing for a couple of years told you that Mayweather won that fight.. Maidana could NOT get the leather on Floyd the way he needed to especially as he faded down the stretch and Floyd ALWAYS in condition stepped it up.. DAMNNNNNNN even Tark dumped your dopey AZZ and you do everything you can to stay in the Old Mans good Graces! Whats the world coming to? Sad Stuff for you Bear

Posted June 5, 2014 12:56 pm 


Bears, Ward does not need Froch accolades they are indeed earned by Froch…That said Ward gets the CREDIT for beating someone with Froch accolades so easily and with ONE hand.. Powerful Stuff ACTUALLY being the winner as opposed to making excuses you BUM! Damn it feels good!

Posted June 5, 2014 12:54 pm 


Yes Bears US based fighters make WAY more money and that’s just how it goes.. Pac Man, Mayweather, Cotto, Canelo are killing the game in comparison at the end of the day NO ONE is gonna turn Wembley into the Mecca of boxing! The Mayweather undercard was the most expensive in history (Broner and Khan) making more than a mill on the undercard… Give it up Poppy I got an answer for anything you can think of! Canelo made MORE on the B side of facing Floyd than Wladimir Klits EVER has absent his fight with Povetkin which basically tied young Alvarez best night with Money May…

Posted June 5, 2014 12:49 pm 


Bears YOU can listen to Te Tumbo I AGREE in this instance with Dan Rafael……..Dan Rafael from ESPN….1. Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0)

Floyd Mayweather Jr. The pound-for-pound king, who simultaneously holds unified titles at junior middleweight and middleweight, returned to welterweight for a unification bout with hard-charging Marcos Maidana on May 3 and won a majority decision in a very tough, exciting fight. Although the bout was perhaps the toughest of Mayweather’s career, he did what real champions do — he found a way to win against a very determined and strong opponent. The fight seemed almost dead-even through about eight rounds, but Mayweather closed strong and got the decision he deserved. It was so good and so competitive, it might mean a rematch in September.
Next: Sept. 13 vs. TBA.

Posted June 5, 2014 12:46 pm 


Hidalgo, TOTALLY disagree that Canelo was “weight drained” I simply do NOT accept that excuse its used EVERYTIME a fighter who has to make loses.. Alvarez is 23 years old and he has chosen to fight in this weight range for years he was 1.5 pounds lighter than his prior weigh in against Trout… Alvarez attested to his strength and vigor prior to the bout and he was a MAN after his loss and simply said Mayweather was too fast and too intelligent (in Spanish of course) Hopkins dropped weight at 44 and beat Kelly Pavliks AZZ, he did the SAME for Oscar at 39, Mikey Garcia was YAKKIING on video and he still came out and knocked Juan Manuel Lopez OUT…. Canelo enjoyed a 16 pound advantage that you could NOT translate into a win there are NO excuses I will accept for his loss absent Mayweather being a much better fighter which is consistent with Floyds ATG history…

Posted June 5, 2014 12:44 pm 


lasttime i saw TE TUMBO talking about floyd vs maidana he too thought maidana beat floyd. could see giving floyd nothing better than a draw at best.

me and my buddies on here we do not expect everyone to share the same views snd opinions. its weird that sredmond feels becsuse i think maidana beat floyd TARK should feel the same way. it explains why sredmond has no friends he has warped views of friendship.

maidana vs floyd saw maidana as the aggressor and ring general and with most the ouput and getting floyd on the corner and the ropes. if u gave floyd rounds it was not for ring generalship, aggression, or volume pumching or even momentum. it was from a subjective view that floyds quality of punches were better or more effective and i do not subscribe to that view.

on a side note that left to the nuts followed by left to the face was priceless. maidana vs floyd instantly one of my favorite fights!!

Posted June 5, 2014 12:29 pm 


Pacquiao and Lara are two different propositions as those of us who read KNOW, Top Rank and Golden Boy have not done a fight in YEARS so the reason for the fight not happening is shared… Erislandy Lara would have to make himself more bankable in order to warrant a Mayweather fight and he has the PERFECT opportunity to get his name out there by soundly defeating Canelo Alvarez or knocking him out (very unlikely)… What happened to the merit system? You just wanna line up a bunch of names who bring NO economic or belts to the table and say “fight these guys” FACT is that Mayweathers huge purse guarantees demand guys that are sellable… The Maidana bout was not a blockbuster, a rematch might do better since Marcos made a scrap of it… If not Maidana Floyds gotta face a guy that can be sold to the public…

Posted June 5, 2014 9:08 am 


Arthur Weener, Mayweather has fought MORE HOFERs and Standing World Champions over his past 10 or 12 fights than any other active boxer absent Maybe Pac Man but even Pac had to do a rehab fight with a guy like Rios coming off a loss.. Had Mayweather fought Rios off a loss and coming up to 147 he would have been crucified…Name 3 other active fighters that have only faced either a HOFER, Multi Weight Champ, former Champ or standing Champ in their last 10 or 12 bouts????? Mayweather makes terrific fighters look ordinary that’s his gift and curse..

Posted June 5, 2014 8:31 am 


Canelo was NOT “weight drained, weak or parched” he was a pro fighter who signed up for a bout and took off an extra 1.5 pounds with the aid of the best in the business.. He had ALL physical advantages over Mayweather ie 17 pounds and he was 13 years younger than a guy in his mid 30’s…Making weight is no longer an excuse in boxing for me, Canelo continues to fight at Jr Mw and is NOT going to 160 at this point… He was successful against over 40 other pro boxers fighting 154 and below suddenly he faces an aging ATG and he is “weight drained” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That’s a WEAK excuse and does not show any respect to the differential in the caliber of his opponent… You are a charlatan

Posted June 5, 2014 6:49 am 


Sredmond.., You keep saying I had Canelo over Mayweather when that’s a total LIE… I ALWAYS had Floyd beating Canelo by decision for months on end… You said Floyd would knock Canelo out and YOU were dead wrong.

I’m not saying Canelo has no shot against Lara… He probably thinks he can get Lara with left hooks… That’s possible… I think Lara will win a decision on the order of 116-112, but he’ll have to win every round to get that. Canelo will be much better than he was for Floyd — because he was weight drained, weak, and parched for that fight.

No matter by what score Lara wins by, I don’t see him getting a Floyd fight… Floyd refuses to fight Pacquiao, so why would he fight somebody so much tougher like Lara?

Likewise.., Why would he face slick boxer-punchers like Porter, Thurman, or Brook?

“His girlfriend is a total babe. BTW, ever wonder why you never see Sergio Martinez with a woman? Take a wild guess.” – Ward’s babe never gets much in the way of pics and TV coverage like Froch’s does. This needs to change. Make the camera linger on her during fights and pan down at her tits. LOL about Martinez, I’ve never heard any rumors on that. I did get solid confirmation on Lennox Lewis and JM Marquez being gay.

Posted June 4, 2014 6:36 pm 


Mayweather ducks anyone who’s dangerous his entire career has been carefully scripted and managed to give him every advantage. The moment anyone is on the scene that poses a problem Mayweather disappears. Whether you like it or not Sred Mayweather’s career will ALWAYS have that shadow hanging over it.

Posted June 4, 2014 6:02 pm 


Tark, I don’t have an issue being wrong or taking an underdog if I think he’s got something.. YOU are a NUT who is accusing the P4P king of ducking Shawn Porter, Kell Brook, and Keith Thurman because of some special danger you manufactured in your mind.. You had Canelo over Mayweather and when that went south you DUMPED Canelo and now you are acting like he has no shot against Lara…

Posted June 4, 2014 5:58 pm 


Sredmond.., You’re the man who said Lamont Peterson was going to beat Lucas Matthysse … You’re the man who said Matthysse was going to KO Danny Garcia … You’re the man who said Juan Manuel Marquez was going to KO Timothy Bradley … You’re the man who said Mayweather was going to KO Canelo … NONE of those things had a prayer of happening.

You have no credibility… You’re not an analyst… You don’t know what to look for… You’ve never boxed amateur or pro… You’ve never trained amateur or pro boxers… You don’t know anything about Boxing… You’ve never held one job in boxing… yet you call others amateurs, like you know something.

My analysis is pretty damned consistent… When I pick who’s going to win and by decision or KO, you can pretty much take it to the bank… Your analysis is a stab in the dark.

Posted June 4, 2014 5:53 pm 


Anonymous, Froch did a good job with Groves of filling Wembley for a rematch that had no real historical significance beyond proving that the ref made a mistake first time out and giving Groves an opportunity to show it his success was not a fluke, he failed… That said we have US boxers making 41. 5 million as a base guarantee, when Carl Froch makes anything close to that call me! Hell Canelo made 17 mill as the B side of that fight!! HOLLA

Posted June 4, 2014 5:07 pm 


Tark, Canelo had MORE youth, POWER and equal speed with Porter yet he was stripped of those assets by a veteran the likes of which he will like NEVER see again in his career.. A truly special talent that has done the job for 18 years, if you are saying the ONLY reason we have never seen Floyds hand not raised is Shawn Porter, Kell Brook or Keith Thurman you should seriously kill yourself..

Posted June 4, 2014 4:56 pm 


Tark, YOU said that Floyd is avoiding Porter because He things Porter might “beat his azz” I seriously doubt Floyd knows much about Porter because he is NOT bankable and his best wins are not really the ones that put you on the map… Paulie is a guy who might outbox you, but he is NOT and never has been DANGEROUS…. Marcos Maidana is dangerous if he gets to you the wrong way, the canvas is where you will find yourself…

Posted June 4, 2014 4:50 pm 


Tark, Shawn Porter does NOT compare well with Terry Norris because Norris is a HOFER who had a full career and had to endure his own chinny moments to attain his status (Julian Jackson) Porter is a newbie and shows us NOTHING to say he “gives Floyd a life or death fight” EXCEPT the posts of ESB nutcase Tark who has decided that Thurman, Brook and Porter are nightmare bouts for Floyd… Yeah Right!

Posted June 4, 2014 4:48 pm 


Bears can have any opinion he wants. Paulie Malignaggi even said Maidana may have won it. Mayweather-Maidana was tougher than anyone expected … and there are a number of people who think Maidana won.

I think Shawn Porter compares well to Terry Norris… except that Norris had a glass chin… Ray Leonard lacked the speed to deal with Norris’s chin a good blow, although he was a huge favorite… Leonard was obviously influence by Norris’s terrlble canning by Julian Jackson and thought he had somebody he could beat.

Now… Floyd may be a little smarter than Leonard… He may see that Porter’s youth, speed, and power are a real problem… Unlike Canelo, Porter has a solid amateur background. Porter is faster… jabs better… counters better… attacks better… moves better… thumps harder… and generally defends better.

I’m not picking Porter to beat Floyd… You keep putting words in my mouth… Porter gives Floyd a life or death fight — which is something everyone wants to see but Floyd.

Posted June 4, 2014 4:40 pm 


Bears, it is SAD to see how Tark has made a FOOL of you by selling you out and not hopping onboard the idea that “Maidana smoked Floyd Mayweather” ….. I feel bad for a SCUMBAG like you, who thrives on approval from other men… This must be a SERIOUS blow to your meager ego, guess you are gonna have to take this out on the mother of your bastard child again… “Hammer Time” for the Bear.

Posted June 4, 2014 4:24 pm 


Bears, who are all these “Smaller Opponents” Mayweather is pulling up out of lower weights? The guy has been the SMALLER man in 3 of his last 4 fights and the same weight fight night as Guerrero… Against Maidana he was 148 the night of the bout and Marcos was 165 or 166 but of course in BEARS World Floyd was the bigger man… Truly insane! Bears Mayweather is not facing Khan in Sept, unless Khan renounces the Muslim religion and does not fast or whatever it is they do during that time.

Posted June 4, 2014 4:22 pm 


According to Tarks Logic Manny Pacquiao CANNOT win against Floyd Mayweather… Tark thinks that Mayweather having a hard night against Maidana, and Shawn Porter making light work of Malignaggi mean that Porter would wax Floyd? WELL by that thought process, Marquez who was a complete WIPEOUT WIN for Floyd and dropped Manny face first on the canvas would be an EASY night for FMJ?? Tark this is the basic thought process that you are promoting do you stand by this?

Posted June 4, 2014 4:19 pm 


Bears, Tark has TURNED ON your idiocy and branded you the fool for acting like Maidana “dominated” Floyd Mayweather and won… Now look at you? Semen all over your fuzzy face and Tark cooly smoking a cigarette at your expense… When will you learn that your radicalism does not fly man…????

Posted June 4, 2014 4:08 pm 


Tark, Shawn Porter is NOT “Brilliant” NOR a “Speedster” he is a damn good, tough young fighter who would be grossly overmatched against Floyd… Maidana was tough because of his awkwardness, body mass and, super aggressive style.. NONE of these assets are gonna be in play the same way with Porter who needs to beat his peer Keith Thurman.. Your logic is bizarre we OFTEN say that Manny Pacquiao cannot get a solid win over an OLD azz Marquez and got slaughtered last bout hence we don’t like his chances against Floyd BUT you are sitting here swearing Shawn Porter is your guy against FMJ???? Anything can happen but there is NOTHING about Porter special enough to make it likely.

Posted June 4, 2014 4:06 pm 


Tark, everyone did think Mayweather would win easy and why NOT? he has been unbeatable for 18 years… But EVEN a tough night for Mayweather concludes with his hand being raised wheras other boxers end up with an L on their records… Its immature to act like a guy, especially an older boxer cannot have a tough night but down the stretch Money May stepped it up and showed why he is an ATG…

Posted June 4, 2014 4:03 pm 


cool i just dontthink floyd did enough to win that fight. i dont think leople believed their eyes that a cherry was dismantling floyd.

Posted June 4, 2014 3:11 pm 


Floyd won the fight… But he looked slow… He looked tired.

Imagine if Floyd were fighting a brilliant young speedster like Shawn Porter or Erislandy Lara??? Instead of the less skilled and slower Maidana???

It would be Leonard-Norris all over again—possibly… That risk is what Floyd is avoiding… At least Leonard took the risk of fighting a fast young guy.

Posted June 4, 2014 2:43 pm 


i did not see the fight as close to a draw either. i thought the winner was self evident

Posted June 4, 2014 2:08 pm 


maidana was the ring general, floyd was outthrown and outlanded as far as im concerned. it was always maidana pressing. getting floyd kn the ropes or in the corners where ref tony weeks sometimes saved floyd. beyond that it was floyd looking at ir addressing ref tony weeks as if to say “do something dude”

Posted June 4, 2014 2:04 pm 


floyds gonna look for a smaller opponent. someone to come up from a lower weight. or kahn

Posted June 4, 2014 1:56 pm 


i did not give that fight to floyd. thats my own subjective opinion. no way did floyd win that fight

Posted June 4, 2014 1:55 pm 


Floyd beat Maidana, but looked bad… Everyone thought Floyd would win easy.

Malignaggi-Broner was close — Maidana-Broner went to a D

Porter destroyed Malignaggi quickly like Paulie was a rank amateur.

What happens??? Porter is one more superlative boxer Floyd will refuse to fight.

Posted June 4, 2014 1:53 pm 


If you gave Floyd 6 good rounds, you were kinda generous because he gave away FOUR rounds can’t get the decision against Money Mayweather in Vegas until you half beat him to death and Marcos AGREES with me on THAT!!!

Posted June 4, 2014 12:08 pm 


maidana did not tet much money from floyd for the fight either. thats ok from this fans perspective that cherry beat floyd. EXPOSED HIM. now we know why floyd thrives on the guerreros and ortizs of the world.

ask some fools on here and they will tell u guerreros no garbage despite he is slow, feather fisted, 130 pounder, with flat feet that need to be planted, fuerrero beat jason litzau and berto so that means he is good.

bahhahahahahahah GTFO DUMBA$$!



outside o kahn who will the fraud fight? he is running out of viable cherries he can market as legit opponents rather than face the best welters.

i think something might happen within goldon boy now that shaffers ousted and noone to pander to fraud. we might hear of early retirement and or fraud leaving goldon boy.

will be interesting to see what happens. i fully expect fraud to continue with least risk approach to opponents and not fighting the best and also probably fighting smaller guys coming up in weight. hmmmm maybe danny garcia?


Posted June 4, 2014 11:33 am 


Yeah Bears, you Skip and the drug dealer who keeps you loaded can all pow wow while Mayweather sits ATOP boxing making unreal money and still Unified Champ in 2 weight classes, Maidana is ANOTHER guy who bit the dust as did 45 others absent a SINGLE loss… AMAZING@!!!

Posted June 4, 2014 11:12 am 


Maidana’s largely ineffective aggression failed to win over the judges and those who wanna see a guy actually get hit.. Maidana was missing all night and the evidence of that was his inability to capitalize on the cut produced by that headbutt.. Instead Mayweather righted the ship and started nailing him dead center.. OF COURSE you award the fight to someone other than the winner… This is common behavior from you, I must have seen you overturn 15 decisions from the comfort of your trailer with your pet swine sitting next to you while drinking a 12 pack of Coors and lamenting the state of the Nation…

Posted June 4, 2014 11:10 am 


can u believe a ripe cherry like maidana beat floyd???!!

makes u wonder who all is on the payroll in the floyd bouts. maidana showed everyone why floyd has ducked and dodged the best fighterrs his whole life. good to see skip bayless say as much following stephan a smiths “floyds a liar” statement

Posted June 4, 2014 11:08 am 


funny to hear stephan a smith call floyd a liar in response to floyd saying “oh i wanted to give the fans a fight like this” bahahahahahahaha!

everyone had the fight very close. to me maidana won it. he controlled most of it and thats also reflected in the punch ammounts thrown. it was the maidAna show to me. i sat and watched the fight. maidana one clear as day. i will never say floyd won that fight NO WAY. bring on your scorecards son i have mine

Posted June 4, 2014 11:05 am 


Bears, didn’t you say that Maidana was pretty much garbage? yet now you claim he defeated Floyd Mayweather who is the consensus P4P number one in the sport? you are contradicting yourself again… Which one is it? is he “garbage” or did he beat FMJ??

Posted June 4, 2014 11:00 am 


No Bears, Floyd REALLY did NOT “get phuked” he made 32 million dollars, he Unified the division and he maintained his #1 status in the sport.. If that is getting “phuked” then sign me up!! LOL… Also you really betray your bias because you root for the demise of a fighter to the degree that you get “a pick me up” that’s really SAD! true fight fans applaud results… But if watching Mayweather win gets you off then by all means enjoy yourself.

Posted June 4, 2014 10:58 am 


Bears, so SUDDENLY “Mayweather has the judges in his pocket” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! How do you substantiate that statement? and how would the father of a bastard child living on the outskirts of Illinois be privy to this conspiracy? Ahhhhh it originated in your head while watching your kid eat spam provided by the US government? interesting stuff man. Why would judges or ANYONE respond to your desire for oversight? You CONSTANTLY overturn decisions when you don’t like the fighter or you are a fan of another fighter… I will be the first to admit that Maidana pushed Mayweather hard, but the man did not win you cannot drop 4 straight rounds of a close fight then expect the “W” against a venerated Champ especially the final 4… I would tell you to “learn boxing” but your issues go beyond the sport of boxing and extend into real life where you are just a weirdo that treats reality like an option…

Posted June 4, 2014 10:55 am 


whenever i need a pick me up i can watch maidana best floyd up. hit him in the balls then the face with the left left. that had me ROFLMAO!!!

also funny was how much floyd relied on weeks. looked at him for help. was making statements to him. floyd got phuked son.


Posted June 4, 2014 10:52 am 


Bears, your take is as usual RIDICULOUS, NOT supported by the judges and most actual boxing people.. ie Lampley who is NOT a Mayweather Loyalist or Dan Rafael… You cannot even try and make an intelligent or crafty case like a close win for one fighter or the other… INSTEAD you wanna sell this as a domination for Maidana which is 1000000% comical… Maidana was on the receiving end of almost ALL the CLEAN and easily scored headshots and going down the stretch he FADED and Mayweather took over pretty much sweeping the final 4 rounds, how many fights are you going to rescore to your liking and present on ESB as if your notions are gonna get widespread acceptance? in the real world Maidana is NOT a Champion any longer Mayweather Unifed the division and life goes on while you play games..

Posted June 4, 2014 10:50 am 


maidana won the fight vs mayweather for sure. i think watching its obvious. im pretty shocked how horrible floyd looked. 1-0 maidana. interesting to seenif floyd agenges. this fight is also interesting to see how different people saw the fight.

i think the “he did what champions do, he found a way to win” is a cop out. that fight was the maidana show. maidana was the ring general. maybe the “found a way” is referring to have home advantage, have the judges im your pocket, have the ref, and u will have “found your way to win”

i would like to see how people scored that personally. even the 3 rounds maidana lost he made a case for winning. floyd was pretty much dominated early and at best broke even at times. he never really took any sort of consistent control.

having watched it i score it for maidana. INSTANT CLASSIC. instantly one if my fav fights. congratulations to maidana. we will see if floyd avenges the loss. i have a feeling he will not! lol

Frochs ko of groves elevated him further in my mind and those of many others. KOs leave a lasting impression. Unlike many UDs. Unlike boring farts.

Posted June 4, 2014 10:25 am 


Tark, Froch beating George Groves after 2 fights is not some sort of watershed moment… Rodriguez was Wards #1 challenger and undefeated as I recall, Ward beat his AZZZ for every moment of every round he did not need a rematch nor got flattened in the early rounds of the fight to get the win..Beating George Groves does not elevate Froch status next to Ward it merely gets him out of the hole that controversial stoppage put him in…

Posted June 4, 2014 10:01 am 


Bears, saw Mayweather vs Maidana as a KO win for Maidana LOL! This is something he routinely does with his fellow Neo Nazis he will supposedly youtube a fight and score it EXACTLY how he DREAMED it happened meanwhile REAL boxing fans and people tend to have a reasonable standard deviation…Read Dan Rafaels take below and he is not a guy who is in love with Floyd Mayweather…….Dan Rafael…..1. Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0)

Floyd Mayweather Jr. The pound-for-pound king, who simultaneously holds unified titles at junior middleweight and middleweight, returned to welterweight for a unification bout with hard-charging Marcos Maidana on May 3 and won a majority decision in a very tough, exciting fight.

Next: Sept. 13 vs. TBA.

Posted June 4, 2014 9:51 am 


Actually Mex, I thought the fight was a lot closer. Mayweather took 4 rounds to even begin to make it competitive. He looked flummoxed and couldn’t handle the phone booth. First time I;ve seen Floyd looking clueless from a come forward fighter in a long long while.

And quit with the insults just because someone sees differently to you.

Posted June 4, 2014 8:24 am 


Whoever calls himself Bears is a complete idiot and he has proven it in his round by round scoring below. This gimp knows fk all about boxing and needs to go back to watching MMA and the WNBA and the LPGA, because that’s about the level of his understanding of sports. Stick to checkers and tiddlywinks but leave the real men’s sports alone. You’re gonna get hurt, real bad. Idiot.

Yeah I know Wlad has the Ring Championship. I don’t call it a title. If you have the Ring Belt you are Champion of that division. All the other belts are titles, meaning you get ranked higher if you have it. And it bumps your purse up a bit. Can’t have multiple champions in one class. You are not a champion then. I say the title are like the NBA playoff. Each series you win gets you a title but you have to win the championship game to be the Champs.

I read some of these comments and it was bad enough that fighters don’t fight the best but the bigger draw, now some of us also say “well he didn’t fight him caus he brings no money” that’s where I give credit to Canelo,cotto fight anyone regardless of money

Posted June 3, 2014 8:15 pm 


In reference to US fans my point is on ..regardless of Wards lack of experience (which of course is a reason also) …At the top …..Ward has been judged and that is why he has no base of fans …… world wide and in THE USA …..

Posted June 3, 2014 8:05 pm 


I will take the Ring Champion over any title holder any day.

Posted June 3, 2014 8:00 pm 


I don’t think so hookoffthejab..,

What it is? Floyd won titles in 5 weight classes — and his current weight class is loaded with talent and exciting fighters who never fought Floyd.

Ward has owned a world title in one (1) weight class and that class hasn’t produced any talent who would make good matchups for Ward.

The 2nd best guy is 36, and Ward already beat him several years ago… and that man just hammered out somebody who was previously a potential Ward opponent, in a fight that jammed stadium seating with 80,000 butts … and was televised twice in the US on Saturday for a totall of 6 hours of air time.

Take that Andre. That’s better than a sharp jab on the nose.

A bum doesn’t draw 80,000 to a stadium in the biggest event in British Boxing history, like Froch did.

A bum doesn’t beat six (6) World Champions: Jean Pascal… Lucian Bute… Arthur Abraham… Jermain Taylor… Glen Johnson… and Mikkel Kessler

You might call Froch’s challenger George Groves a bum. At the very least Groves can’t defend himself adequately. I had to LOL a couple months ago when Virgil Hunter praised Groves. He said Ward-Groves would be a great fight. Hunter is desperate to dig up an opponent for Ward. I laughed because, when you’re the champ everyone is coming after you. You don’t need to go scouting for opponents.

Andre Ward is a World Champion who can’t buy a fight.. Nobody wants to fight him.. Floyd Mayweather has potential opponents who are screaming to fight him … who Floyd DOESN’T WANT to fight.. He’s ducking people all over the place.

Floyd makes makes mega millions and Ward makes chicken poop… totally weird.
Posted June 3, 2014 12:23 am

totally weird….. Not really its just a reflection on the fans that make up the sport of boxing… Junior has more appeal and the fans of boxing can relate with him good/bad …Wheres Ward like to refer to himself as SOG which would mess with anyones mind religious or not …It all comes down to personality’s who the fans relate with and or want to be like ….

And if Froch don’t want to fight Ward again, Ward will still be crazy?

What title is that, not the ring title. Which is really the only one that matters. High risk/low reward. So being THE TRUE SMW CHAMPION OF THE WORLD and #1 in your division is a low reward. Smh, well keep lifting paper titles.

Styles make fights. Groves is still a class act to be able to beat down carl like he did in the first fight and give him a good fight up until getting knocked out in the second fight. Ward does not have that power Carls got. Groves has skills that Froch does not. As styles make fights I would actually still give Groves more of a chance to beat Ward than Froch! Thats not to sya Groves is the better fighter as Saturday night proved.

Posted June 3, 2014 10:08 am 


Yep bears he has all that plus a big L next to his record for the ward match. A division full of fighters aspiring to be in 2nd place. Weak.

Not sure if it is true or not but read that Floyd and Danny Garcia were close to making a fight for Sept. If so that would be one of the fighters you said Floyd would fight Tark.

Posted June 3, 2014 1:29 am 


I like Ward though. He’s one of the best boxers in the world and you have to hand it to him for achieving as much as he has. He’s going to be around for a few more years as well. I think Kovalev eventually ends him.

froch has one of the hottest wannof all boxers. only one i c n think of that might beat him is wlads hayden paniterre. waaaaay hotter than wards woman. OOOOOOOHHHHHHH! froch has the fans, money, draw, resume, and even the hotter woman! damn! lol!! wards hating it!

I would watch it but no sure about it being a block buster event. And you are correct Froch doesn’t need to fight Ward, he makes his money. But he does need to fight Ward if he wants to try and rectify his loss to him. Which I don’t think he can do. But if he doesn’t care about being the champ then yeah he doesn’t need to fight him. And like I said in another thread I will watch Froch if he fights him or not. I am a fan of Froch. He is a beast in the ring.

King froch- you are a funny guy but I don’t blame you! Your dissing on ward caus he made froch look like the skinny kid from million dollar baby haha, remember ward like rigondeaux are the 2 most avoided fighters not caus their boring its caus their that good and do their talking in the ring!

Posted June 2, 2014 9:20 pm 

King Froch

Ward will be #2 P4P in 2 years, 3 years, 4 years, not even fought, Ward has himself to blame, no interest in fighting, just stay at home like in the super 6 international tourney. Froch fought one fight at home, wasn’t a problem for Froch, it’s what you do, Ward, no, not interested in fighting away at all, wheres my lawyer.

Posted June 2, 2014 8:38 pm 


Of course he doesn’t need to wait on Ward. Ward is the CHAMP. Fighters should be calling HIM out but they’re not. Froch shouldn’t be waiting on Ward he should be CHASiNG him. Usually after a BIG WIN a Fighter’s adrenaline is PUMPING SO he will call out the TOP guy in his weight range. But not even adrenaline could make Froch THAT dumb.

Froch is even afraid to face Golovkin SO what makes anyone think that he wants to face Ward???? Ward is #2 P4P. Golovkin is #0.

Posted June 2, 2014 7:55 pm 


Personalities sold this fight. People were not really interested to see a classic boxing match. Neither fighter is anything close to class. Just two loud mouths. At least Froch doesn’t cheat the spectators. He goes after his man.

Posted June 2, 2014 7:53 pm 

Freddie Roach Ate My Hamster

Ward’s a great boxer but he isn’t fighting. He went from fighting 4 times a year, to twice a year, then once a year and by the time he fights again it could be over a year since he last fought. His last fight was a comeback after injury – 7 months ago and there’s no prospect of him fighting any time soon. His opponent was gifted an elevated ranking, despite never fighting anyone in the top 10, so his last live opponent was 2 years ago. To me this is a waste of arguably the second most talented boxer of his generation. In comparison, Froch has fought against every tough opponent he could. If Ward resumes his career before Froch retires, they probably will meet again. Nobody can expect Froch to hang around waiting for Ward to resurface, rather than take fights which are making him millions of pounds.

Posted June 2, 2014 7:47 pm 

Safety first

So glad the fight lived up to its billing. Froch is still competitive. I would like to see him quit whilst he still has his wits.

Posted June 2, 2014 7:40 pm 


When Ward fights and beats the fighters or the caliber of fighters Froch has then you can put him on the pedestal you have.

Posted June 2, 2014 7:38 pm 


It’s rare that a fight lives up to its billing: this one surely did.

The sport will recover and gain momentum toward being a unified legitimate league rather than a sickos paradise if Floyd ever decides to Fight Pacquiao it will take the interest if others to challenge the scumbags of the game…if Floyd wants to rid the sport of men like he, he needs to produce an event the world will watch and maybe even a rematch for bigger effect.

Posted June 2, 2014 6:02 pm 


Theres a reason for the expression ‘Home Advantage’.

Maybe Ward does’nt travel well, or he may step up to the plate like his compatriate Crawford and prove a lot of people like myself wrong.

Posted June 2, 2014 5:56 pm 


How is it “Good if Froch beats Ward” reality is its good when the BEST man wins… Ward proved that he was the BETTER man fair and square with a BAD hand yet that’s not enough for Froch fans who somehow want to put him atop 168 without going thru the BEST fighter in the division.. You CHUMPS are politicians and lobbyists as opposed to fans of actual results… Had Froch bested Ward, it would be what it is no excuses necessary.

Posted June 2, 2014 5:48 pm 


Ward has Roy Jones symdrome,

It will always cast a shadow over his achievements.

A “Real Champion” WINS against the best Comp in his division or others Ward positively CLEANED out his weight class BEFORE he had 30 fights…”Travel” is the excuse LOSER use to explain LOSES we all live on planet earth and a better fighter is gonna prevail no matter where… Ward does NOT make it even close, guys say he has NO fans then how do they make him better the nights he kicks azz in the ring?

Posted June 2, 2014 5:44 pm 


Ward is super talented, but a Real Champion takes the show on the road.

Froch is correct. 80,000 fans at Wembley scuttles the inane arguments of anyone who claims boxing is dead.

Posted June 2, 2014 5:23 pm 


If I was Ward no way would I come to UK. Ward is not stupid he knows he will get stuffed in Uk, he will be fighting in the smallest ring you ever seen & just before he does his ring walk the canvas will be changed to a new surface that’s like a soft sand beach. God I thought Frank Warren was a crook, he got nothing on fast Eddie. You lot talk about FMW & SRL wanting it all there own way, at least the opponent knew what they were doing unlike clueless George.

Posted June 2, 2014 5:19 pm 


Ward wants to fight Froch in Wembley Stadium.

Froch wants the fight, if he wants it at all, in Las Vegas.

Posted June 2, 2014 5:12 pm 


Boxing is big and getting bigger… This fight jammed Wembley Stadium with 80,000 fans. It was broadcast both live and delayed all over the world. Even the buildup was given tons of TV time in the United States.

The last time a major boxing match drew 80,000 fans in America??? When Joe Louis knocked out Max Baer in Yankee Stadium in front of 88,000 fans in 1935

That fight was less than satisfying. Baer took the count on one knee, and could easily have gotten up… In this fight both men wanted to win very badly. They left it out there.

Froch is right. Boxing, as a global sport, is flying.

Posted June 2, 2014 5:09 pm 


Ward should fight Froch in Froch’s home.
It’s Froch who has belts, drawing power, excietment and kudos .

And more importantly, America is no longer the center of boxing.

Posted June 2, 2014 4:58 pm 

Boxing Barlow

Also, whilst I would still pick Ward to win over Froch, Carl has started to get fans thinking he can make the relevant adjustments after having a bad night. he was beat by Kessler and then got his game plan right and whooped Kessler in the rematch. Groves made him look like a novice for 8 rounds before Carl made the adjustments changed his plan and stayed with him on a boxing level before knocking him into next week later on in the fight. Ward dominated Froch, but he never hurt him. Would Carl knowing exactly what Ward brings to the table after suffering a defaet last time round be able to up his game plan and find a way of beating Ward like he did against Kessler and Groves.

Posted June 2, 2014 4:18 pm 


Thank you for fighters like Carl Froch. Not the most skilled or talented but more than makes up for that with desire and toughness. The guy puts in on the line and gives his all every time. That’s all you can ever ask from a fighter.

If Ward had the same attitude he’d be a legend by now, but he’s in active and still cashing in on his Super Six meal ticket. Froch has become the star in the division and Ward is irrelevant.

Posted June 2, 2014 4:13 pm 

Boxing Barlow

Ward need to come over to the UK. I’m not saying that from a legacy point of view or that he has anything to prove by coming here to fight Carl. Rather he should look at his recent fight, the piddly little area it was in and the complete lack of interest in him and then look at what the UK can offer and he should fancy some of it. In the same way the likes of Hatton and later on Calzaghe wanted to come to the states and fight in the big venus the reality is it dont get must better than Wembley stadium in front of 80,000 fans. I think Froch could sell out something similar agains were Ward to come over so Ward would be crazy to miss out on such a nights work.

Posted June 2, 2014 4:13 pm 


carl thankyou for your excellence

Posted June 2, 2014 3:45 pm 


If ward starts fighting again and froch is the number one guy they should fight/unify.

Ward needs to call froch out and froch needs to man up for the integrity of the sport + try to unify + avenge his now lone loss.

If infact ward stays silent and froch has his swan-song against the likes of 3G or jr in vegas I can live with that.

Win lose or draw froch should take on the champ, maybe Floyd and Manny may learn the proper way to be a fighting man in terms of fighting your number one and or mandates/unifying. If froch and ward lead the way but I doubt it. Chicken weather and pansy pac are scared little girly men.

The Bummer

Groves was a bum and so is Froch! Froch – the bum – will never fight Ward again and Ward’s just a bum! Calzaghe would have run circles around all of them, if only he hadn’t been such a bum! But he was – the bum!

Posted June 2, 2014 2:08 pm 


Froch is right. This fight was good for the sport. Competetive fights with exciting fighters will still bring out the crowds. Too often today, promoters protect their meal tickets. Sanctioning bodies put up mandatory challengers who have never fought a contender. (You don’t even hear the word “contender” anymore.) That is fine; everyone makes some money, but to stir interest and to put paying customers in the seats, give us real fights with quality fighters.

Carl Froch.., “Groves was throwing the left hook a lot which was pretty naive. There’s nothing on his left hook and he was throwing one when he got poleaxed by my right hand.”

Exactly correct. Groves was throwing very weak left hooks throughout, and Carl was steadily zoning in with a sizzling right hand to counter them.

Groves fought like a neophyte, and his seconds were clueless.

Posted June 2, 2014 12:57 pm 


See that’s what I’m saying. Instead of just congradulating froch on a good victory and future prospects, froch fans always take a little time out to send shots at ward. Who by the way schooled froch.

Froch has given some fantastic post fight interviews this being one of the best. It goes without saying he lives and breathes the life of a dedicated fighter.
He might not be the most talented in his weight-class but he has fought every name in the division, some of them twice and has travelled the world in the process and got stuck in everytime.
I hope he gets his wish with both the Vegas fight AND adding new fans to this amazing sport.
