James MD, I saw the fight multiple times and I simply don’t agree with your interpretation of the events ie KD’s… Provo was rightfully awarded ONE…The crux of your argument demands I accept ALOT of conjecture ie ANOTHER KD and Homecooking, I am extraordinarily comfortable with the handling of the bout and the actual results as validated by 3 judges…For your thesis to work there has to be a number of irregularities ie uncounted knockdowns and fixed judging… I don’t buy that during this bout and saw things the way the ref and judges did… Provo was brutal and hurt Bradley several times but he lost too many rounds and was rightfully on the SHORT end of the proverbial stick… Make Peace with this friend or consider Killing Yourself?

Posted August 21, 2014 11:25 am 


James MD, we can do this till the cows come home I am FINE with that.. You seem to think that your position which is counter to the refs, and counter to the judges carries some sort of weight with me? Well it CLEARLY does NOT… Provodnikov was rightfully awarded ONE K/D he was outboxed for the majority of the rounds and LOST the fight.. Your desire to turn this into Brain surgery is SAD, INEFFECTUAL and leading YOU on a road to NOWHERE at the end of the day 3 judges and the majority of sane observers saw… I don’t recall Freddy Roach or Provodnikov raising much of an objection to the result it was a hard fought battle but the limited slugger predictably ended losing… Too Bad, So Sad… HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Tim Bradley, California, USA

Referee: Pat Russell California, USA
Judge: Raul Caiz Sr (115-112) California, USA
Judge: Marty Denkin (114-113) California, USA
Judge: Jerry Cantu (114-113) California, USA

Ruslan Provodnikov, Beryozovo, Russia

But according to you home cooking played no part in deciding the outcome of that fight?

Bradley clearly won a fight where the outcome hinged on a single point.

Ruslan came up plenty short in a fight where the outcome hinged on a single point?

A single point was the deciding factor in determining the outcome but the Californian referee choosing not to count a pair of knockdowns a Russian fighter scored against a Californian fighter in a fight that took place on Californian soil had no bearing on it? It was merely a coincidence?

SREDMOND, typing all that pretentious twaddle is nothing more than a convoluted way of saying you have nothing of any real substance to say in response.

You say that Ruslan came up plenty short and clearly lost a bout where the outcome hinged on a single point? Neither is true. He lost by a single point on two of the three judge’s score cards. That’s hardly losing clearly or coming up plenty short. A single point was the difference between a majority draw and a win for Bradley.

The result of the bout hinged on a single point and the referee Pat Russell choosing not to count two knockdowns against Bradley was absolutely pivotal in deciding the outcome. I don’t see how you can argue otherwise.

I’ve shown you the video of both of those knockdowns and acting like they never happened or the referee was right not to count them smacks of agenda.

The first one was a clear-cut knockdown and absolutely should’ve been counted.

The second one wasn’t as conclusive as the first but Pat Russell still should’ve counted it because it was in accordance with rules. Russell only had to count one for Ruslan to come away with a draw, but he chose to ignore both of them, which was terribly convenient of him.

He will try to sell us Rubio as a solid challenge when Rubio was the Champion of NOTHING (interim, really) he castigated Maidana for having 3 losses before Mayweather handed him a 4th but he has no problems with GGG facing a guy with 6 losses who got KNOCKED out 3x, once by Kelly Pavlik… Again I am not beating up GGG for fighting Rubio its better than Stevens or Ouma but Tarks double standards are becoming insanely laughable.

Posted August 21, 2014 10:47 am 


Tarks Post on Golovkin vs Rubio… Meanwhile he is pissed that Maidana had 3 losses to World Class fighters when he fought Mayweather…..

It’s the separation thing…

Rubio’s only loss in his last 17 fights was a decision loss to Chavez Jr.. Rubio was the first fighter to beat David Lemieux 25-0, and Rubio knocked the big bomber out.

Golovkin needs to get rounds in and Rubio hangs in there. He’s real tough. However I still think he’s going out in a couple rounds. Maybe Korobov will beat Quillin and GGG can start unifying. GGG basically wants to stay busy first — and secondly unify the middleweight title before he knocks Ward out.

Tark wants to position Thomas Hearns against Chris Algieri??? He then treats Maidana like the guy is a bum who everyone takes lightly except FMJ when the guy has more than proven he is a HARDAZZ… He admonishes Maidana having losses to World Class boxers including Floyd Mayweather in a relatively tight battle for Floyds standards YET he gives GGG props for facing Rubio with 6 losses? Tark is a SERIOUS fraud and its impossible to understand where he is going with a lot of his arguments these days…

Posted August 21, 2014 10:15 am 


Spot ON Tomato Can, Tark does NOT believe half of what he says and the reality is that his assertions have become LESS and LESS credible… He will PUMP up Algieri and take a dump on Ali and Mayweather… He NO no longer has the ability to distinguish a World Class fighter from a guy who booked ONE win on note…

Tark spends so much time focusing on flaws of great fighters that he misses what the majority if fans see. Degrading past greats like Ali, Hearns, Robinson, and so on, and up lifting fighters that never accomplished near as much seems to be Tark’s favorite pass time…. In any case, Algieri may prove to be a great fighter someday, but right now he’s being rushed into a big fight due to lack OC house fighter resources….

Posted August 21, 2014 4:39 am 

Bo Bo Olson

Yep, Hearns was a tad chinny…vs Hagler he broke his hand in the first round I think so went bombsville. He’d planned to box.
Barkley was so unexpected.

I had Mayweather, part of a family I never liked winning the first 6 rounds easily of the first Castillio fight, in he was like a superball on coke bouncing off the ropes and wasn’t there to get hit.
I loved that 12th round, when I finally saw a Mayweather, any Mayweather swapping punches….tight great round, that he lost.
He did win the fight….easily IMO. 8-4. 6-0 first six rounds. Chasing and big time missing loses to running and getting in a punch or two.

This fight will be won by Mayweather…they will have a clean tough ref in it.

Posted August 21, 2014 2:58 am 


And BTW… Hearns wasn’t an undefeated World Champion when he faced Hagler… Guess who is.

Posted August 21, 2014 1:54 am 


Tomato Can says.., “Unlike Algeri Herans was already an established fighter who had been past first base.”

Unlike Algieri, Hearns had already been knocked out — and was about to get knocked out again!!!

Unlike Algieri, Hearns would trade shots with a bigger, stronger, tougher, and harder puncher… and didn’t learn very fast, because he did it AGAIN with Barkley.

Unlike Algieri, Hearns wasn’t college educated – or very bright.

Posted August 21, 2014 1:53 am 

Super Stars Pick and Choose

Maidana is a great fighter but he cannot beat Mayweather on 100 punches alone hoping to land a KO or a stoppage kind of hit. He doesn’t have the chessboard smarts to boxing like Mayweather. Still a good fight to see how much Maidana has improved. He won’t win but will give a good account of himself.

Posted August 21, 2014 1:20 am 


I don’t see how Marcos can be much “dirtier” then the first fight…he should of had 2 points deducted easy!

Maidana training for a DQ. I expect him to be a lot dirtier this time around.

Posted August 20, 2014 11:49 pm 


When you only land 26% of your punches then you HAVE to throw 100 to even be competitive. Floyd only needs to throw 50 shots to match you and he will be landing CLEAN shots as opposed to grazes and illegal blows.

brza da originator

Seem to remember Floyd s legs bein fine in the gurerro n canelo fights . I honestly don t know what happened the first time . Maybe because of the supposed mismatch on paper he thought he should stand and trade which gave maidana a chance . Expect May this time to school marcos like devon done a while back . Maidana is not that good . Hes barely a top 10 welter n expect the mismatch we all thought was gonna happen the first time to come true .

Posted August 20, 2014 11:15 pm 


I know boxing very well and I can tell you positively that Peter Quillin is not very good and will be badly exposed the minute he steps up. He wouldn’t last more than 3 rounds with Golovkin and quite frankly even some top30ish guys have a shot at beating him.

Spot on Heck Dog! Pacquiao/Algieri does resemble Hagler/Hearns. At least in terms of shorter champion taking on taller skinny challenger from a lower weight division. However that’s were the resemblance stops. Unlike Algeri Herans was already an established fighter who had been past first base.

Posted August 20, 2014 10:33 pm 


Rubio.., “Insanity has reached new levels on esb. Hecdog predicting algieri vs. PAC to resemble hagler vs hearns.”

Pacman looked like Hagler, with a better defense.. Hatton looked like Hearns — but only when he was absorbing bombs.

I do think Floyd is slowing down, but his skill set will still be enough to beat Maidana. when Roy lost his legs and reflexis he was exposed because he never had great fundamentals and he couldn’t take a Punch.

Posted August 20, 2014 9:10 pm 


Old school- like his game plans a secret. What else do you think he can do? Counter with straight shots off the ropes then spin Mayweather in a corner. Umm, no.

Posted August 20, 2014 8:51 pm 


These are old school tactics, milling and swarming, to overcome a more gifted opponent.
Chances are, it will only work if Mayweather has lost the mobility in his legs.

If he is less mobile than before then he is in trouble.b

“No way Floyd can move for 12 rounds, his legs aren’t there. That was the game plan last time, when he tried to adjust to boxing, Marcos just kept punching. Even mumbley Sr. was telling him to stick and move.” – Correct. Floyd’s legs are going, that’s why he stood and traded more with Maidana, Canelo and Cotto. It’s not to “entertain fans” as he claims.

Posted August 20, 2014 8:08 pm

Maidana will only throw about 60 punches before he is DQed.

Posted August 20, 2014 7:54 pm 

old school

If Maidana is planning on throwing 100 punches per round, why is he exposing his game plan. You never hear Floyd giving any details on his plans. He just adjust. El Chino is just promoting the fight. Just like uncle Rodger said, “most people don’t s___ about boxing! Peace out

pactards r us

It will be a better fight than that crap fight PAC vs Algieri… Algieri wins BTW

Posted August 20, 2014 6:55 pm 


I do think Floyd is starting to show major signs of his age. He’s not moving in the ring as much, he takes way more punishment than he used to. That’s not only from Maidana.

I noticed Cotto hit him more, as did Victor Ortiz. Granted, Ortiz got absolutely toasted, but he was applying pressure at points that surprised me. Same with Cotto. Floyd has seemingly lost a step or two.

Maidana has exploited this loss of movement and reflexes the most of any other fighter thus far. His style is rough and come forward with lots of punches and he actually has a deceptively good jab. To me, it’s his jab that starts the problems for Mayweather.

I do think it’s likely that Mayweather wins, perhaps even by a wider margin this time. But if he truly is getting older and it isn’t just that he was dealing with personal problems last time, or tried to mix it up too much, etc, then Floyd could actually have an even tougher fight this time.

In Maidana’s favor is the fact that he now knows Floyd’s punches don’t hurt him. And he’s not intimidated by Floyd’s speed, either. He mentally believes he can hang with and beat Floyd up.

This will be a good one, I think!

Posted August 20, 2014 6:42 pm 


Floyd’s going to win in easy Fasion.

Posted August 20, 2014 6:37 pm 


Maidana gave Floyd a tuff bout. however Floyd’s toughest bout was his first fight with Castillo which was a gift decision in favor of Floyd. Floyd’s fight with Maidana had similarities to that bout. Floyd should have 1 loss on his record IMO.

Floyd doesn’t just fight pretty. He’s also a rough guy. Funny nobody sees that. When Maidana was putting real leather on him while he was on the ropes, my girl was freaking out. I’m told her to calm down. He’s a real fighter.

Posted August 20, 2014 5:58 pm 

his legs aren’t there

No way Floyd can move for 12 rounds, his legs aren’t there. That was the game plan last time, when he tried to adjust to boxing, Marcos just kept punching. Even mumbley Sr. was telling him to stick and move. The only way Floyd can beat this man is to knock him out or pull a boxing virtuoso perfromance …. at this stage he can’t do either. He tried last time(boxing), didn’t work.

Posted August 20, 2014 5:41 pm 


If Mayweather gets on the move for the first half of the fight and Maidana trys to throw 100 punches a round his % landed ratio will be ridiculously low. Then by the time Mayweather slows down Maidana will have proberly punch his self out. I can’t see this tactic working but it’s his only change I see a lope sided points win for money.

Posted August 20, 2014 5:41 pm 


@ James MD. Spot on. They were definitely KDs. Both of them. How on earth can the ref not count the one were Timbo keeled back over again? Shocking officiating on his part.

James face it your SAD rear view mirror analysis has netted you NOTHING…Bradley has fought Marquez and Manny again since beating Provo, and Provo has faced Alvarado and Algieri since then… Its OVA ROVA, give it up! Bradley was done ONCE that I the ref and judges saw… He clearly beat Provo and that’s the end of that Poppy!!

Posted August 20, 2014 4:54 pm 


Of COURSE everyone was from the US where has Provo been fighting? do you expect MORE popular fighters to box a former Pac Man sparring partner in Siberia? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! The man has lost 2 of his last 4 bouts he is a good slugger but that’s his upside he allowed a kickboxer to get off the deck and stick a jab in his face all night….This is why he BLEW OVER 1 million $$$$ he could have made facing Pac man and Algieris future kids will be spending that $$$$$$….

Posted August 20, 2014 4:51 pm 


James, you can buy your OWN network and discuss how you think Ruslan won but you are going to end up WRONG and Frustrated.. He came up PLENTY short despite being brutal in some rounds, you cannot lose a bunch of rounds and win because of ONE KD does not work like that….Provo is really NOT World Champion material he will not last long at that level, too high contact of a fighter but he does seem to be a nice guy and he punches like a mule…

Posted August 20, 2014 4:49 pm

You can bet the house the referee would’ve called both of them if Bradley had done that to Ruslan.

Posted August 20, 2014 4:31 pm

0:33 Ruslan lands a short left hook on Bradley’s jaw, Bradley goes down and is still so badly hurt he goes down a second time when he tries to regain his feet.

1:58 a Ruslan left-hook sends Bradley reeling into the ropes in a terrible state. The ropes clearly kept him from falling. That’s a knockdown.

No need to apologize for being wrong SREDMOND. There was one official knockdown and two that the referee categorically should’ve counted. The referee, and all three judges for that matter were, like Bradley from the USA.

It’s not a coincidence that those knockdowns weren’t called, but you can bet the house that at least one of them would’ve been anywhere outside the US. That’s called home cooking. Denying that those knockdowns should’ve been counted only makes you look like you have an agenda.

I don’t believe that Floyd needs to move for 12 rounds to beat Maidana, but I do believe that Floyd can move for 12 rounds if he chooses to train for 12 rounds of constant movement. I have no way to prove this; it is simply my opinion. And yes, I do believe that Floyd will win this fight.

Hatten cme from 140 lb were he was unbeaten till manny. Look it up his fight history.
So what about algeri WBA 140 belt he earned it, if Floyd collected it you say is ok? Yes you been fair and peej gotten more fair, but your writing PAC off if he has a hard fight, as mannny has turned into a boxer now and he will win it the ard way by out boxing a good boxer with a belt. What your doing is before he fought he cat win or lose. What about seeing if manny can really box, which mean less power but moe points, that really boxing fan focus should be. Speed Lon reach, jab, power etc
Doing your way we revert to Floyd vs manny war.

Jo Jo, Floyd did not get KOed by a 39 year old who has not beat any WW boxers he faced Pac Man aside… Maidanas style troubled Floyd, maybe it will again or Floyd will adjust and beat his AZZ something awful… FACT remains that Algieri is a rancid opponent and that’s just the way it is…

Posted August 20, 2014 4:02 pm 


Jo Jo, Mayweather NEVER fought Hatton at a catchweight they boxed at 147 pounds… And the bout being at 144 still makes it a WW fight which is a division that an unknown boxer like Algieri has NEVER fought in… He is a lamb being lead to slaughter and if Manny looks bad that’s it for him because he is being fed an EASY opponent…

Posted August 20, 2014 4:00 pm

Good idea from Maidana. Volume and aggression are the keys since so many Mayweather opponents don’t let their hands go. If someone did the math I’ll bet dudes’ average punches per round decline 20% vs Floyd compared to their career averages.

Posted August 20, 2014 3:59 pm 


Sorry James, Ruslan did NOT win that fight! He had Bradley hurt and he did damage but Tim won the round and Provo only got ONE KD… All 3 judges saw it the same, Bradley did not get a hometown decision he gutted out the win… FACE it, Provodnikov is a limited fighter that cannot handle when a guy boxes him and uses his head… He needs a brawl to prevail and simply did not have enough to get Bradley out of there even though he rung his bell…

Raymond you do know that chris has a WBA belt at 140 lb? And the fight is at catch weight of 144 lb. not 147 lb that Floyd uses for hatten or jmm.

Posted August 20, 2014 3:57 pm 


Maidana is the Exact type of fighter that has a chance of beating Floyd. It’s hard to counter a fighter that fights so erratically Nacho Beristain said the reason they counter Manny better in the last three fights is because working with roach over the years Manny no longer fights so erratically and has more of a straight forward style so therefore they can predict what he will throw from the rhythm he uses. Same goes for Maidana and Mayweather hard to counter someone that doesn’t even know what they are going to throw themselves.

Posted August 20, 2014 3:53 pm 

James MD

Ruslan did beat Bradley. There were two legitimate knockdowns that the referee did not call but categorically should have. The one in the first round and one later on in the fight were a Ruslan left-hook sent Bradley staggering back into the ropes in a drunken stupor badly dazed and hurt.

Bradley would’ve gone down if not for the ropes keeping him upright, but even if he wouldn’t have, the referee should’ve at least still given him standing eight count due to the dire straights he was in. The referee should’ve done so at other times during the fight too when Bradley was in equally bad shape.

These are the judges scorecards

Now factor in the two disallowed knockdowns.

Home cooking saved Bradley’s ass in that fight.

Judge: Raul Caiz Sr 115-112

So where the flip side? You me tigon earlier
That manny cant fight most fighteras they are under GBP or hamon fighter,

Floyd won surely.maybe not a UD decission, but he won, so you saying floyd has to beat up maidana or he wash up?
You said that the pressure manny face.

Posted August 20, 2014 3:33 pm 


I am stating the FACTS the reality is that Golden Boy and Top Rank have NOT done business for years and hopefully that will really change at some point.. Freddy Roach cannot dictate who Manny fights ARUM DOES!! Freddy HATES this fight with Algieri but he has NO choice because he is just the trainer and NOT the promoter…

Posted August 20, 2014 3:33 pm 


Jo Jo as for style SURE anything is possible but the reality is that Algieri would need to fight FAR above the level we have EVER seen him at… If this matchup is OK then ANY matchup is OK…. So whats the point of rankings, vetting and building a resume???

Raymond Garcia was mention as a opponate by roach but you are quick to dismiss Garcia or other comments as a fight that can’t be made. Theoint is arum check the site after announcing a match up. And he has a lace in Lin if everybody agree he a good match up. So your not helping the cause, but hurt that match up.

Posted August 20, 2014 3:29 pm 


Jo Jo, the fight was closer than normal for a Mayweather fight and like the Champ he is Floyd wants to make it 100% clear who is the superior fighter… Maidana made for a tough and rugged bout so they are doing it again… Manny is a GREAT fighter and has been in some epic bouts but Algieri is a SCRUB opponent for a boxer at Mannys level…

Posted August 20, 2014 3:27 pm

Yes Raymond that not the point, Floyd beat him before, what the point of another fight? When he has 2 fight left before he retires ?
That along is ok, but why go out of your way to down grade manny fight.
Many said manny will lose, because he a boxer. Dot follow stats boxing is about style, don’t you get it? Cotto is a example.

Posted August 20, 2014 3:25 pm 


Ruslan did NOT beat Bradley, he sure as hell had him in trouble but he lost too many rounds and LOST a UD… Provo is a limited fighter and despite his toughness he is beatable when a guy has handskills and avoids the big shot…

Posted August 20, 2014 3:24 pm 


Garcia matchup? against who? Floyd or Manny? I have no issue with either guy fighting Danny Garcia FACT is that Garcia is a Golden Boy/Haymon fighter so there is little chance he is facing Pacquiao….Canelo said he was not accommodating Pac Man, I don’t have a problem with Manny facing Canelo but I think that he (Canelo) is just TOO big… Roach and Koncz said that they would not let Manny fight above 150 pounds and Canelo is not getting to 150 so whats the point… Moral to the story is Algieri is a BAD choice period there is no selling it…

Top 10 rated PPV star Bradley couldn’t beat Ruslan with two good eyes. Puslan was robbed in that fight. Algieri beat Ruslan fighting one-eyed for most of the fight. That’s impressive no matter which way you swing it.

Nobody cared ,( cheered the anouncment of portential fighters) who manny fought so arum pick the guys who beat prov who was setup to face manny.

Posted August 20, 2014 3:20 pm 


Jo Jo, Maidana has been in the ring with World Class fighter and I am DAMN sure that if Algieri were fighting that level he would NOT be Undefeated.. He has ONLY 20 fights whereas Maidana has KOed over 30 professional boxers… Where was Algieri ranked before Provo? #600 in the World at WW??? LMAO…. Maidana was a World Champ at the SAME weight as Mayweather when they fought Algieri is a reformed Kickboxer with a big heart and decent skills getting fed to the Fighter of the Decade… Learn boxing man Seriously

Posted August 20, 2014 3:19 pm

And Raymond why were you putting down canelo as a opponate of the flip side, manny camp asked for a catch weight fight, but canelo said only if it’s at 154 lb as he lost to Floyd at 152 lb and no more below. But the point is you strongly refuse to allow anyone to cheer for this matchup.
And you didn’t push for a Garcia fight when roach wanted it. Arum watch the Anouncement and watch is there is viewer money available in a anounced matchup. So why disagree strongly when this is what you created, as nobody cares so we chose.

SREDMOND, being undeafeated 20 and 0 and claiming a belt in kickboxing shows your a champ in alatude and follow up skills. That all I was saying beside 20 and no loses in boxing.that btter that maidana who you have beaten before, if you cant see that you have no logic and are a fan boy, tell me what to gain for Floyd in this fight, what has he to achieve, and what if he don’t do that?

Posted August 20, 2014 3:10 pm

Throwing more punches and coming forward will be playing right into Mayweather’s hands. What Maidana should be doing is learning how to box.

Is the Drug test in Las vegas.

Posted August 20, 2014 3:01 pm 


Jo Jo, we DON’T count a guys kickboxing record anymore than we count his MMA record when discussing a Top Level fighter… He is fighting Manny Pacquiao and this is NOT a kickboxing match its a boxing match and Algieri is a terrible opponent as it pertains to the level he has boxed at…If Manny loses its because he is WASHED up because Pac Man from 2010 blows out Algieri and the bout would be accepted by NO ONE…

Posted August 20, 2014 3:00 pm 


Maidana’s gloves are NOT foam and they are NOT a handicap… I heard these are the same gloves that Golovkin wears and he does not seem to have issues getting stoppages? are we to believe that there is an 8oz glove in the business that renders KO’s impossible for a professional boxer? who would make this glove and how would they hope to be successful?? More Tomfoolery from the uneducated and those lacking critical thinking skills….

Posted August 20, 2014 2:58 pm

If Floyd can handicap maidana with foam gloves, then Floyd should be handclap with weighed down shoes too.

Posted August 20, 2014 2:43 pm 


Imho, I saw Floyd get old in that fight. He got the “W” but he’s getting hit more often than normal. In the Canelo fight, Alvarez tried to out box the master … and he got owned. No one, no one can out box Floyd. Can Miadana keep up the pace? We shall see. Taking Floyd out of his comfort zone is the only way. There is a reason why Floyd’s punches are economical in nature. Floyd took this fight to prove it to himself … that and it’s gonna make him another nice purse.

Posted August 20, 2014 2:33 pm 


Wonder if these ppv to see Floyd get blubber lips, are going to bail him out this time?

Posted August 20, 2014 2:31 pm 


Don’t worry when you hate to get hit as Floyd you can run all night, for our life. but that dont mean you can look good or even not get hit. That all he fun factor. A maybe moment.

Posted August 20, 2014 2:26 pm 


Maidana training for a DQ…..LOL

Posted August 20, 2014 2:25 pm 


If it didn’t work the last time he would have lost. :-)

Posted August 20, 2014 2:21 pm

Maidana will gas out by the sixth round and he’ll resort to MMA tactics in order to survive.

Posted August 20, 2014 2:21 pm 


No way Floyd can move for 12 rounds, his legs aren’t there. That was the game plan last time, when he tried to adjust to boxing, Marcos just kept punching. Even mumbley Sr. was telling him to stick and move. The only way Floyd can beat this man is to knock him out or pull a boxing virtuoso perfromance …. at this stage he can’t do either. He tried last time(boxing), didn’t work.

Pugfan. I checked it’s about 11-1 same as Floyd last with maidana 1,000 bring I less that 100 buck.

Raymond: aligeri has a 20 win no loss in kick boxing, and also 20 wins and no lost 8 ko and belt he 40 wins no defeat as a fighters. A long reach boxer. He a strong undog.

Posted August 20, 2014 2:08 pm 


Floyd is head and shoulders above Broner. No this wasnt his toughest fight. Cotto and Oscar gave him more of a run for his money. Miadana is just dirty rabbit punches hitting in the nutts he probably would have bit if he could. Marcos is going to get his ass handed to him no matter how many punches he throws they have to land clean and Floyd is too slick for him even in the pocket most of his shots missed.

Posted August 20, 2014 1:56 pm

Broner was a hyper up fighter, even Raymond said that once, and he has returned back to 140 lb. the point is Floyd beat maidana already it’s a grantee, why is many saying manny will not get pass algieri sure he not the greatest fighters ,but he not a fighter that manny have just beaten 3 mo th ago, see the double standard. That my indifference. Both are wast time fighter but Floyd has 3 fights left, manny has 7 fight left.

Posted August 20, 2014 1:50 pm 


I am not saying Algieri will win , but if he did? what a pay off!

Posted August 20, 2014 1:48 pm 


I can imagine what the odds will be? if I were a betting man I might place a few bucks on Algieri. nobody thought Leon Spinks had a chance against Ali.

Posted August 20, 2014 1:47 pm 

Jo jo

SREDMOND, broner who is he a 140 lb fighters. Who algieri would beat.
And Floyd beat maidana already, why is this fight harping when he has two fight left? And no body wanted this fight, they just said Floyd can’t handle maidana so we have a secound fight , so the pressure on Floyd to beat up maidana or he wash up as you say that the opic of these 2 fight .

Posted August 20, 2014 1:46 pm 


Algieri is a kick boxer that says it all. He got pat Ruslan but he was a nobody himself.

Posted August 20, 2014 1:41 pm 


I don’t think Floyd needs to move 12 rounds to beat Maidana he just needs to be MORE offensive and let his hands go… Marcos cannot cope on his back foot, Floyd needs to attack and get his respect… We will soon see fight is less than a month away!

Posted August 20, 2014 1:39 pm 


Maidana is NOT a C level fighter and he is in a TOTALLY different class than Algieri who does not even have the benefit of punching power… How many World Class fighters has Algieri fought? he is here on the strength of BARELY getting by a former Pac Man sparring partner whereas Maidana beat Broner handily… Manny is a few fights removed from a bonecrushing KO loss Mayweathers record is still PERFECT… These two fights don’t compare in their threat level Algieri is gutty and has some good skills but he has NEVER even fought at 147 and does not have the vetting to deal with Manny unless he is TOAST…

Posted August 20, 2014 1:37 pm 


in my opinion Floyd should still be able to out box Maidana , but Floyd no longer has the legs to constantly move for 12 rounds.

Posted August 20, 2014 1:36 pm 

Jo jo

Raymond said that if manny can’t beat up algeri and win convincely then he washup, so the same goes for Floyd who did beat maidana onces and is doing a worthless fight, he can’t beat up maidana this fight this time he washup. Work two way. And why is many saying that manny going to lose. If that a garantee fight. If Floyd a A -rated fighter and maidana a C-+fighter he should get beat up right?
