Roach convinced Cotto beats Mayweather in return; isnt sure Floyd will take one

Fresh off his dominating stoppage win over middleweight ruler Sergio Martinez, history maker Miguel Cotto has plenty of options. One fight his new trainer Freddie Roach is both interested in and is sure his warrior would win, is a return with Floyd Mayweather; who decisioned Cotto in a competitive fight two years ago. Roach thinks Floyd is, as he put it to the post-fight media in New York yesterday, [...]

Floyd Mayweather Junior’s planned June trip to U.K shelved due to visa issues

Those U.K fans who were excited about meeting superstar Floyd Mayweather Junior during his planned speaking engagements this week will be disappointed, Jeff Powell of The Mail has reported, as the series of dates, planned for this month, have had to be scrapped due to unspecified visa complications encountered by Mayweather. Fans, who had parted with as much as £200 to meet and greet the undefeated [...]

If No Fight Mayweather Suffers Most

If no fight, it's a given Floyd "Money" Mayweather, Jr. loses more money than Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao. Money took care of that little item by getting Manny to agree to take less. There's no denying both fighters are great, and it's a surety both are going to be in the Boxing Hall(s) of Fame. If no fight, though, fans and the media suffer too, because they are left with the unresolved question "Who [...]

Hey Floyd, Manny! Remember when Wladimir Klitschko called out David Haye on YouTube?

Remember when heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko called out David Haye in a YouTube video? You remember David Haye, right? He was the polite-sounding, trash-talking, loud-mouth, who was packing a glass toe, and literally talked himself into the heavyweight spotlight without really doing much of anything to actually earn it. Sure, Haye picked up an ABC strap when he squeaked by Nikolai Valuev with [...]

Top Rank’s Bob Arum Boasts Mayweather Jr. vs. Pacquiao Confidence

Bob Arum may be the only one in the entire world to be so confident that Mayweather Jr. will soon face his pride and glory Manny Pacquaio, but who is Arum trying to convince? Himself or the boxing community? “I think that fight will eventually happen. We are certainly open to the fight happening and we are prepared to sit down with the Mayweather team at any time and work out terms,” stated [...]

Floyd Mayweather will fight September 13th – opponent and venue to be announced

Some people, myself included, felt superstar Floyd Mayweather Junior would perhaps take a pass on his usual September fight due to the tougher than expected (not to mention foul-filled) night’s work “Money” had last time out, when he won a decision over a rough and ready Marcos Maidana. But such thinking has been proven wrong, because Mayweather has officially announced how he will next fight [...]

PPV scenario for Pac and Floyd if ‘Super Fight’ won’t happen

Why a fifth bout between Pacquiao and Marquez is all of a sudden being raised as though it needs to happen tomorrow? What does Dinamita’s win yesterday mean to boxing? Why any fights that will be lined up for Pac and Floyd at this time versus different foes, however appealing they may seem, would be unwise and PPV wrecks unless they face each other first? Juan Manuel Marquez has just dominated [...]

Pac and Floyd’s latest PPV: Handwriting on the wall

The pay-per-view sales are down for the shows far below projections. HBO and Showtime live cable viewing for both fights didn’t do well in numbers based on the announced approximation by the producers or accurate/padded figures they are reluctant to divulge. Brats and crocs aren’t ecstatic about the grim facts that have come in. Had the people been remiss in doing their part and had majority [...]

Khan: Mayweather’s trying to avoid me

Amir Khan (29-3, 19 KO’s) has his mind made up that WBA/WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (46-0, 26 KO’s) is freezing him out from getting a big fight against him, and he thinks that he’ll finish the remaining 3 fights on his Showtime contract and retire from the sport without giving him a fight. Khan has it in his mind that Mayweather sees something in his style that he doesn’t [...]

Floyd Sr. still convinced Mayweather would dominate Pacquiao

In his recent win over Marcos Maidana on May 3rd, Floyd Mayweather Jr. looked about as bad as he’s looked since his two life and death struggles against Jose Luis Castillo in 2002. Mayweather, for the first time in his career, looked his age, and didn’t seem to be the same guy that had dominated Robert Guerrero and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez recently. That’s why it came across as kind of strange [...]
