DaTruth Hurts

I guess Freddy won’t have to worry about who’s corner he’d be in for a Paquiao Prov fight now.. LOL

TARK IS A HYPOCRITE says.., “last year you wrote: Pacquiao could have had a Floyd fight by agreeing to reasonable terms, and he didn’t have a chance anyway”

That’s BS… I never wrote that… Some FAKE TARK might have written that.. I always said Pacquiao wanted to fight Floyd and Floyd didn’t want the fight.
That’s the actual truth… Floyd is Chickenshlt… He’ll duck anyone with a decent chance to beat him to protect his “O”

Boxer…, Floyd fought everyone who was available.. Tszyu was on the self with injuries for 2 years, and then lost to Hatton … Williams lost to Carlos Quintana at a point that fight could have been made … Cheato never beat anyone, couldn’t even beat Williams when he was probably cheating. Plus he only beat Cotto by cheating—the rematch and Mosley fight proved it … Floyd challenged Mosley and De La Hoya when they were both 154-pound champions and Floyd was a Lightweight. They wouldn’t fight Floyd … Pacquiao could have had a Floyd fight by agreeing to reasonable terms, and he didn’t have a chance anyway…
This is a FAR cry from Oscar De La Hoya fighting Yory Boy Campas instead of unifying the title with fellow 154lb Champion Winky Wright..
A FAR cry from Ray Leonard refusing to fight Michael Nunn, Mike McCallum, or Julian Jackson—when they were the 3 Middleweight Champions of the World who each won pieces of the title stripped from Leonard… Leonard WAS fighting as a middleweight—but Leonard went down to 154 to avoid these guys.. He fought Terry Norris—who had been crushed by Jackson.
A FAR cry from Tommy Hearns, who was beaten by Iran Barkley twice, the 1st time when Tommy was 29 years old… Hearns wouldn’t DREAM of fighting Nigel Benn… James Toney… Sumbu Kalambay… Michael Nunn… or Reggie Johnson. They whipped Barkley with ease, but Hearns or Steward wouldn’t consider a discussion about fighting them.
Ducking is in the eye of the beholder. You have to understand who was worthy … who was trying to make worthy fights … and who wasn’t.

Right!!! Floyd is really scared of Pacquiao… In his last 3 fights Pac has looked massively beatable — especially by a guy Floyd beat every minute of every round after a 2-year layoff.
Pacman had a Floyd fight in the palm of his hand twice — and down he goes to ignominious defeat… Now if Pac can only manage to beat Rios, a raw swinger coming off a loss, Floyd might reconsider and fight him.
How many chances does Floyd need to give these losers?

TARK SAID : “How many chances does Floyd need to give these losers?”

“Pacquiao could have had a Floyd fight by agreeing to reasonable terms, and he didn’t have a chance

Roach knows Provo’s waknesses, he will use it in Pac’s favor over Provo. Pacquiao’s advantage again, what else is new? If it is not catchweight, it is something else.

Roach like all corner men goes where the money is thats Pacmans corner.NO BRAINER.

I feel sorry for this author. He wrote an article and means nothing now

I feel sorry for this author. Wrote an article that is useless now

But of course fools…More money with PacMan period. Have a nice day.

Useless discussion. Provo could not close the gap on a moving boxer and Freddy failed to correct that weakness on Provo. Tonight is the Provo I have seen many times on ESPN. A guy that plods ahead looking to land that one blow. There is no way Provo would have won against Manny Psacquiao who can box and punch.

uninformed troll peej.

Posted June 14, 2014 10:44 pm 


Nope. I said it would be hard to make the fight because Toach trains both and Pac considers him a friend. Plus Roach said when they spar they get some good licks in and a fight between them could be a war

Didn’t peej say manny would never never fight provodnikov?

Posted June 14, 2014 10:16 pm 


Peej defending roach, that a new one.

Roach you need to SHUT UP!!
You talk too much!!

Posted June 14, 2014 8:54 pm 

david d.

Style wise, these two would benefit from fighting other boxers. I’d like to see either one fight FMJ.

Roach doesn’t need to apologize to anybody. Did anybody really doubt that he would not train Pac. This is a none story

Freddie Roach needs to apologize more than a few times to the greatest pure fighter of all time, Manny “Pac Man” Pacquiao. How dare he not without question tell the world that he would be in Manny Pacquiao’s corner. This is quite upsetting to me. Manny Pacquiao made Freddie Roach. No one would have ever known who Freddie was had it not been for Manny Pacquiao. Manny is the most loyal, respectful, loving, caring, decent, humble helping person in the world. He never basks in his glory, and always gives Freddie the credit. Ruslan Provodnikov is a tremendous fighter only because he learned his trade from Manny Pacquiao. I’m a bit upset with Ruslan for even thinking of fighting his mentor. Manny Pacquiao is the only loyal boxer in history, and that’s why he won’t leave Arum like so many want him to. Manny Pacquiao is a man among men because he is never controlled by money or materials. He is all class, and I’m confident he would not want to hurt his friend Ruslan Provodnikov, and trust me when I say this, an ambulance and hospital better be within seconds of the fight site if they do fight as well as a flock of lawyers for Manny because Provodnikov would be seriously hurt. Friendship, respect and honor should be valued over a victory, championship or pride. Freddie Roach should know this. Why put these to friends together. I will definitely protest this fight if it’s ever signed. Freddie can make money with both. Manny is a friend among friends. A king among Kings. He beat the best of the best and those other guys like Mayweather and Ped Man Marquez have voiced their fear of the man. Freddie Roach has jumped on Manny’s success and Manny looked up to him like ma father figure. Freddie best apologize and make things right. I salute Manny Pacquiao for being the kind of valued person we have in the world. He has done it all and accomplished more than anyone in boxing ever has. Ruslan Provodnikov needs to really think before he decides to take on the greatest fighter ever that taught him how to fight. He will learn as many others have learned in life. The student is never above his master. Trust me on this, Manny Pacquiao is not a man you turn your back on. Manny is the best!

Gatti and Ward are good friend and they fought three times and both earned millions, I have no problem friends fight each other in the ring for money, even sibling kill each other for money.

No suprise there.
