Floyd Mayweather Continues To Toy The Boxing World

It’s final, on May 3 at the MGM Grand or Barclay’s Center, square pegs in a round hole will stage a fight that the sport doesn’t warrant and the fans don’t crave, rather the people detest in light of the “Mayweather vs. Pacquiao.” By picking Marcos Maidana over another undeserving boxer Amir Khan in a frolic of dolts, Floyd Mayweather Jr. continues to toy the boxing world. And certain [...]

Marcos Maidana Will KO Floyd!

I"m putting myself out there and making a pretty bold prediction but I feel that Marcos Maidana is going to shock the world by knocking out Floyd Mayweather in the 11th round of their upcoming fight. I have three reasons for thinking this: Floyd hasn't gotten any better and is slipping, Marcos Maidana has just the right style to beat Floyd, and finally, Maidana has sky high confidence! [...]

Mayweather Jr. Picks Maidana, Leaving Khan In Search For His Next Rival

The night when Marcos Maidana had achieved something that most boxing fans did not expect him to, at least not in the fashion that he did it in, by beating Adrien Broner with somewhat an indifferent, casual fashion, the thought of Maidana vs. Mayweather Jr. was born. There is a respectable number of boxing fans suggesting that Adrien Broner wasn’t himself that night, and that maybe Marcos Maidana [...]

Old Money? Floyd Mayweather Junior turns 37 today

Boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Junior celebrates his 37th birthday today. While fight fans the world over await “Money’s” belated announcement on just who he will fight on May 3rd, Mayweather has been enjoying his birthday by taking in a game and betting some big bucks as he loves to do. Whoever Floyd winds up fighting next, and in subsequent fights post May 3rd, most if not all people [...]

Left-Hook Lounge: Mayweather (Decision and Legacy), Khan’s Rant, and Bradley/Pacquiao Testing Fiasco!

Melvin A. (Cincinnati, OH): It appears Mayweather will take the Maidana fight. We haven't seen Mayweather against a really fast fighter since Judah, so I liked Khan as the option. Why Maidana? And how can you explain your Facebook comment that this fight will be "epic"? Vivek W. (ESB): How can I support Maidana as the option? Pretty easily, actually! In only three words I can lay out a case far [...]

Khan announces Mayweather’s next fight for him

Good luck to Maidana, against mayweather.— Amir Khan (@AmirKingKhan) February 21, 2014 Showing perhaps the main reason why Floyd Mayweather Jr. maybe changed his mind about wanting to fight him, Amir Khan came out today and announced Mayweather's next fight for him by telling everyone on his twitter that Mayweather will be fighting Marcos Maidana next on May 3rd. This is Khan being Khan [...]

Khan: Mayweather cherry picks to make himself look good

Amir Khan is starting to sound increasingly unhappy with Floyd Mayweather Jr. judging by his comments in interviews and on his twitter account. With each day that goes by, it seems more and more likely that Mayweather won't be giving Khan a fight on May 3rd and that seems to be getting to the British fighter. Khan thought he had the fight with Mayweather after winning his poll competition against Marcos [...]

Arum: What Mayweather has done to Khan is disgraceful!

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum is all bent out of shape with the way that Floyd Mayweather Jr. has treated Britain's Amir Khan by not naming him as his next opponent for May 3rd, and having him compete for the fight with Marcos Maidana on his website poll at Khan won the poll, but Mayweather still hasn't named him as his next opponent yet. Arum says he would never do that [...]

Floyd Mayweather: He’s not a super-hero

From the fighters mentioned as next opponents, the only boxer that Floyd Mayweather Jr. should face would be Manny Pacquiao (assuming he doesn’t renew his contract with Bob Arum’s Top Rank). Floyd should not hold the sole responsibility for the Pacquiao super-bout not happening, because (as the old adage goes), “it takes two to tango”, as some of the heavily-publicised demands from Manny’s [...]
