Pacquiao has had several opportunities to fight Floyd, first he dicked around with the testing. The he was offered 40M and turned it down, and took less to get KO’d by 40yr Marquez who Floyd schooled easy’ Porter, and Thurman are young bulls. But not big enough names, can’t sell a PPV fight. It is “Prize Fighting” you know. Khan is “bum” but he could sell PPV…Maidana is not a “bum” Tark, he is respected and you don’t know if Porter could beat him even…have a nice day.”
Testing and 40 mil “offer” were not paqiaos inventions they are Floyd’s demands !Posted August 13, 2014 2:28 am
We don’t agree on much, but that I will agree on…Posted August 12, 2014 11:59 pm
20 million USD??? You’d love to make those peanuts.Posted August 12, 2014 12:34 pm

Floyd Mayweather is just a coward.Posted August 11, 2014 5:00 am
SLIM.., “how can you be “chicken sht” ”
For refusing to fight Pacquiao for the last 5 years… and for trying to fight swingers like Maidana and China-chins like Khan — instead of undefeated young bulls like Porter, Thurman, and Brook.Posted August 11, 2014 4:59 am
STFU…Tark how can you be “chicken sht” fighting for 18 years in the sport 46-0! Beat 20 World Champions. Never quit, and Rematched any descepencies and won the rematch. Never been beat up or stopped! And made over $250M dollars in purses for your family…STFU! your talking nothing but nonsense. Pacquiao has been exposed as a club fighter he needs to pay his taxes and quit being pimped by his promoter! It’s utterly ridiculous, he’s like a puppet on a string. Now with that being said have a nice day.Posted August 10, 2014 11:26 pm
NOPE!!! Nobody would ever do that.. They’d only praise Floyd for being super brave and stepping up to fight such a dangerous oppoent as Shawn Porter — even though Floyd never fought Pacquiao…
However Floyd will never fight Porter because he’s CHICKENSHlT!!!
Can a Leopard change it’s spots?????Posted August 10, 2014 4:02 pm
If Mayweather beats Porter next, people will point at Porter barley squeaking past Julio Diaz and a couple others and that he was too green, had to lose too much weight, should have been fighting Floyd at 154, wasn’t allowed to use his gloves and any matter of excuses. Truth is Floyd could beat King Kong, then his detractors will find some sort of excuse for King Kong. Hatred will hasten your visit to the grave. You’ve been told.Posted August 10, 2014 11:09 am
TOTAL BS…, Guerrero was always a bum… No risk involved… Ortiz and Soto Karass also beat on Berto… They took turns.
A risky fight for Floyd would be Pacquiao… Porter… Thurman… or Brook.Posted August 10, 2014 3:56 am
Just so you know
The guy needed major surgery on his shoulder after that fight against Guerrero it’s safe to say that affected his performance that night. On a separate note there was a lot of commentators on this site calling for Mayweather to take a risk against Guerrero after that fight who since Mayweather schooled him call Guerrero a bum.Posted August 9, 2014 9:19 pm
Slim has the beatPosted August 8, 2014 9:10 pm
terror tim, you mean Berto’s patented shoulder roll without head movement combo isn’t good enough?Posted August 8, 2014 5:10 pm
hell tim you need to stop listening to Kellerman and spar a few rounds.Posted August 8, 2014 5:07 pm
head movement? wtf. It is rolling with a blow or able to take it.Posted August 8, 2014 5:06 pm
Unless he has learned some head movement he will always be too easy to hit.Posted August 8, 2014 4:50 pm
To be honest BERTO has over achieved. I thought he looked done even before he won the world title. Berto was a fine prospect, but somewhere between being hyped to the sky by Arum I saw him get tagged a couple of times, maybe in the Cosme Rivera fight, I realised that he wasn’t what the label said on the tin. So, in my eyes, yep he’s overachieved. I doubt he’ll get back to the top. But, here’s a thought. Why doesn’t he go down to Jnr Welter?
injury will detract from berto, who is a good fighter. little Guerrero handled him well.Posted August 8, 2014 3:53 pm
bert finally got rid of victor conte. good first step.
if shawn porter comes down with shoulder problems, like former conte devotees chambers, ward, berto, and donaire did, he’ll dump conte too.
edwin rodriquez fought the worst of his life after using conte’s oxygen chamberPosted August 8, 2014 3:16 pm
He lacks confidence I think is one of his problems, how about some more boxing instead of crazy brawling like a maniac. He walks in face first sometimes out of desperation and that has cost him. Basically if he has a game plan and fights within his abilities in a smart way he can mount a comback yes. If he runs in throwing caution to the wind well he will get planted on his seat again sooner than later. Lets hope he can be smart this time around.Posted August 8, 2014 2:20 pm
dead on adrianPosted August 8, 2014 2:04 pm
Berto to test Thurman ? Lmao!!!! Thurman was tested enough he already stop Karas the guy who tko’d berto …
And how many times does fighters like berto get a chance to be back in to the discussion for a tittle for doing nothing??? Him and Miranda and to a degree Judah got so manny undeserved chances it’s not even funny!Posted August 8, 2014 1:59 pm
Berto was never a fluid boxer, he squares up, and fights very stiff. He is fast though, I think that’s his main asset, but he’s not good enough to succeed at the top level, and having a bum shoulder isn’t any help.Posted August 8, 2014 1:16 pm
Berto has a nice body..and its kinda handsomePosted August 8, 2014 1:08 pm
Sredmond the IDIOT says .., “Berto is a solid fighter with some known liabilities… He has fast hands, a TON of heart and he makes for fun fights… The division could use a guy like that to test the Thurmans, and Porters against.”
Berto might say.., “Are you trying to get me killed you stupid fuk??? Second rater swingers like Victor Ortiz, Robert Guerrero, and Jesus Soto Karass proved to be to much for me.”
In fact, Ortiz coudn’t test Collazo… Soto Karass couldn’t test Thuman… Guerrero couldn’t test Gamaliel Diaz…
But they all hammered cheating Andre Berto pretty good.
Andre Berto should be matched against guys more his caliber.Posted August 8, 2014 12:55 pm
I’m not really sure how good Berto is… Ever since he tested positive for PEDS he’s been getting his a$$ whooped……Posted August 8, 2014 11:07 am

It’s good to see Berto back. He is not the best in his division, but he gives the fans exciting fights. He can be hit, but he is, himself, a hard puncher and he fights, rather than taking a safety first approach.Posted August 8, 2014 8:57 am
Berto will make a strong comeback and be a strong comeback by 2015. He has the SKILLS to get this done. He will have to work though. It is not easy for just anyone to be the greatest. Only I have MASTERED being the greatest fight PROPHET ever born!!!!Posted August 8, 2014 8:13 am
I love boxing. I think boxers should decide what risks they should take and negotiate the best fights for the most money …
So Andre Berto can do whatever he wants.
But in my opinion, he should retire before he just goes punch drunk stupid.
Andre Berto has never had a good chin. He was rocked stupid early in his career by Cosme Rivera. He was so badly hurt that his trainer cheated and claimed that his gloves were broken somehow to give his guy almost 3 minutes before the next round began.
Since then, Andre Berto has been wobbled and punched stupid in every major fight. He was wobbled badly by Collazzo. He was wobbled by Urango. He was knocked down 2-3 times by Ortiz. He was knocked 2-3 times by Guerrero. He was knocked 2-3 times by Soto-Karass.
I mean, this is getting hurt in a lot of fights. And the excuse that Berto was fighting hurt is ridiculous. Berto has been hurt since 2007 and the Cosme Rivera fight? No. Berto has no chin.
It is not going on the limb to say that this guy really should find something else to do for a living before he becomes punch-drunk before he is 35 years old.
Please just retire.Posted August 8, 2014 7:40 am
Berto has been injured while fighting and loosing.Fighting unfit,never a good idea.I have faith in the dude.Lets see what he can do against the likes of Thurman,Porter and that.MatePosted August 8, 2014 5:33 am

ZzzzzzzzzzzzzzPosted August 8, 2014 1:31 am
If Berto stays off the PEDs he’ll stop having injuries.Posted August 8, 2014 12:53 am
Who ever Berto faces has a great chance at winning …and if they do they get to fight Floyd Mayweather next…Ortiz beats Berto then fights Floyd…Guerrero beats Berto then gets a fight with Floyd…quick ..someone call Kahn and tell him to take the fight on short notice…he beats Berto then bam…he’s fighting Floyd.Posted August 8, 2014 12:28 am

berto is the black george groves. he hasn’t got a clue about stance, footwork, or defense.Posted August 7, 2014 11:47 pm
Berto needs to retire. The gyluy hasn’t hae anything for a long time.Posted August 7, 2014 11:32 pm

Go Berto!!! You can’t do it!!Posted August 7, 2014 6:51 pm
One thing is for certain about Andre Berto — he’s NEVER in a boring fight.Posted August 7, 2014 6:33 pm
berto vz ortiz rematchPosted August 7, 2014 6:29 pm
As we speak, Berto is preparing with a mix of HGH and steroids.Posted August 7, 2014 6:26 pm
Snore, he is good but it seems every guy that beats him gets a floyd shot. Berto is average at best always has been and always will bePosted August 7, 2014 5:44 pm
Berto issue is he has no discipline and ring composure he lets other fighters dictate the pace and he needs better defense and to think better when he is pressed. Two fights he could have won was against Ortiz and Guerrero he let them both break him down mentally. He needs a better trainerPosted August 7, 2014 5:26 pm
I like berto he is an entertaining fighter…..and also because the girl that im going out with is haitianPosted August 7, 2014 5:07 pm
