"I wouldn't blame him if he believed in fairy tales ! Many boxers can only dream of fighting Mayweather, win or lose, of course winning would be better ! Maidana gets to fight him twice, so maybe he does believe in Santa Claus ! But if he wins the rematch, then I will believe in fairy tales too !"

"Not quite true. GOAT Ali was doing all right, but his wife Lonnie wanted him to be doing better. His retirement hook up from boxing was $17,500 a month. That 210,000 a year was not sitting well because the GOAT wanted to holla at some medical procedures to try to beat "the Parkinson Disease Syndrome" that has affected him.



Money May has a boxing/sport endorsement with CBS -- true da! But they are going to Jimmy "The Greek" Synder him as soon as he says an off-the-wall racist-like slur. And as Holy's "concert promotions" have gone busted, so has Money May's. Dude is a master at tricks of the trade and conning people to think that he is worth more than he is.



He loves to exaggerate all of the up-front money that da Bobfather has given Da Manny. Ev'ybodee and dey momma get up-front money. It comes with the territory.



Worldwide in the last two years, Da Manny has made slightly more money from his day jobs, acting, singing, producing, doing commercials, endorsements and entrepreneurship than boxing.



Money May is my boy too. But I'm not blinded about him or Da Manny. I will always call a spade a spade, and never hide in the shade. At the end of the rainbow, Da Manny is going to have a bigger pot of gold than Money May. And Money May and his pops and uncles will be lying on da Bobfather being the reason that Money May never stepped up, and manned up, and took his arse thrashing fro Da Manny like a man. Hehehe!

Nice post! Thanks.



Yes, broadcasters always front the guarantee and recoup on the back-end.



As I explained in another post, Showtime just committed to doing it six times -- hence the "endorsement" nature of the deal.



And hence why it is IMPOSSIBLE for Showtime and CBS to lose money on that deal.



Puck what motherpuckers tell you -- they already recouped their investment and then some!



They can't lose money. Impossible. Can't happen. Fact. (I'll break it down in a piece very soon.)



But there's a big difference between a broadcaster's advance to the promotion/promoter and a promoter's advance to a fighter.



One is bound to the event, another locks you up to your employer.



Gigantic difference!



(Especially when dude shouldn't even be paying back those advances in the first place; they're back-end monies from satellite.)



Other than that, nice info about Ali's retirent. It's OK but far from the heights a guy like Ali should've been to financially.



Where did you get those figures and how was that retirement set up?



Man, if Magic can beat AIDS, they should be able to cure my man Ali!!



Does he still sign autographs nowadays?

"Lil Floyd" has been challenged. And weaseled outta that one. Orpah was going to televise the event($) for "Operation Change" charity on her channel. Games was going to be played in the USA and P-Islands.



Money May is jealousy of Da Manny. And will not appear in any events that Da Manny is featured in. Money May honestly believes that many AmerKanos are "hypocrites," and have turned against him in favor of "a high yellow-@$$ foreigner"



Da Manny has brought a basketball team in the P-Islands. And Lil' Floyd is jealous because he couldn't do the same in the States.

As yes, Andre Berto is fighting again here soon. On Showtime nonetheless against Steve Upshaw Chambers. Its a classic Al Haymon premium cable fight and one that we are getting all too familiar with. Chambers has lost his last two fights when he finally stepped up in competition including a knock out loss in his last fight and can't punch worth anything. When is Stephen Espinoza going to say enough is enough with these matchups, time to start pitching them to Fox Sports.

Against this dynamited fister stalker, Floyd Mayweather will have no hope of reaching the final bell. He is simply too small and does not possess the physicality to fight off what will be coming his way should these two pugilists dance together. If lesser fighters such as Maidana managed to win 4-6 rounds (although employing a different approach and style to the Kazakh) then you must understand, Floyd Mayweather will hit the canvas and will stay there on his back, unconscious.

Unfortunately, many do not know who this Kazakh HBO favourite is but his name will become known in the near future, and then comments such as yours will receive the due laughter they so seek to provoke. To state that Mayweather beats the current MW champion is a claim of the highest order and should be taken with a tonne or two of salt."

This is yet another court loss for Ward. Its time for him to forget the legal wrangling going on here and get his focus back on fighting. He is wasting the prime of his career fighting in court rather than in the ring. Though he may dislike Goosen and the contract that he signed, he is doing himself much more disservice dragging this out like he is currently doing. Its time to focus on fighting in the ring and making something happen. He should go to everyone, including Goosen, and get that fight done in Denmark against Kessler to get back in the ring with an eye towards a huge fight in 2015 against Golovkin. If he wants to be a star in the ring, this is the time to do so and the fights are out there to make him a star.

By the way, with his decisive victories thus far against Ward I will be moving Goosen into my pound for pound rankings.

"You have just as many excuses as Floyd himself. If he were a real warrior he would fight even those that pose a risk to his 0. Ali did it, Leonard did it. Whether he would beat Pacquiao or not is beside the point. He's avoiding Pacquiao like the plague and you know it! He should fight Manny for HIS sake. If he doesn't he'll only be remembered as the guy who ducked Pacquiao."



That made me chuckle. Whilst I agree that in some circles Floyd will most certainly be remembered as the fighter who ducked Pacquiao, in other circles he will be remembered as a man who was a beautiful boxer with supreme intelligence and physical ability. I don't think Floyd is necessarily avoiding fighters who pose a risk to his 0, he is in my opinion taking fights where he will take the lions share by far against fighters with a bit of hype surrounding them.



You could easily ask why doesn't he fight a Thurman, a Brook, a Porter, Khan, Provodnikov, or a host of 154 fighters ready to step up and take the challenge. Now that would have me scratching my head..

Considering the budgets, imagine some MMA guys joining in to take on boxers, playing up that whole "MMA vs. Boxing" narrative that always promises to get ink.



Or what about some of these matchups:



Ricardo Mayorga vs. Rosado for the BKB title

Kimbo Slice vs. Audley Harrison or some other faded heavyweight with a bit of a name

Kimbo Slice vs. Chael Sonnen

Tony Thompson vs. Shannon Briggs

Dereck Chisora vs. Shannon Briggs (after two more defeats, Chisora will likely be their heavyweight poster boy)

Roy Jones vs. Anderson Silva (holy sh*t!)

Randall Bailey vs. Jesus Soto-Krash or anyone

Mike Alvarado vs. Randall Bailey

Michael Katsidis vs. Juan Diaz

Jorge Linares vs. Daniel Estrada



I'm sure either of these can be had for reasonable six-figure sums.



I would watch this at the edge of my seat with popcorn solidly in tow!"




Those are some very interesting matchups, Shadow. I am going to send these to Gerry Cooney so we can talk about them on the air on Friday.

So you think $$May beats em all at 160 my dude? Idk.. There's some guys there that might catch em'. I think Floyd is one of the most genetically blessed TACTICIANS I've ever seen. He adjusts and then the fight pretty much looks the same all the way through after that. It may be true that he goes in without a game-plan, but once he finds his distance and spots, he strictly sticks to the game-plan and doesn't fight with anything else other than how to tactfully beat the opponent(no "pride" to enagage,nothin'). I was watching this Movie "13 Assassins" the other day and one Samurai was described by another as "Not so strong, not as shrewed. But he never gives up. Backed into a corner he won't budge. He won' overplay his hand. He's a man who beats you at the end." It just reminded me of Mayweather because his focus on the fight during the fight never seems to wander. I still do wish he would've fought the fights we all wanted and he has to take some blame for it. I'm not saying all the blame but with all the leverage he has he coulda' made something happen. The "TBE" thing has to stop. The sad part about it is that I would estimate 75% of the people I meet (outside the gym)under 21 think Mayweather is easily TBE. No bueno"


My man. I infused the 168/175 example to illustrate the absurdness of the expectations. Mayweather probably beats the current middleweight champion but he'd have to take some serious bruises to do it.

He probably would take a lot of damage in any 160 fight.

Just look at how he looks after every fight at 154 even though he wins comfortably -- all bruised up and sore from the mauling and defense.

Even though he blocks a lot of shots with his arms and shoulders, it's still impact on 37-year-old bones on a natural, ectomorph lightweight frame.

Keep in mind, the guy walks around only a few pounds more than Nonito Donaire, Abner Mares and Orlando Salido.

(Go back and watch how he fought Canelo where he had eat a big fat steak meal just to get to 149 on fight night. He only blocked shots on very few occasions where he had to. The rest of the time he just moved.)

And if you notice, it's mostly non-boxing folks -- ie. guys who never took a punch -- who insist he go up to 160. They seem to think jumping weight classes is easy peasy, just a matter of putting on weight.

But it's more a question of bigger guys, more physicality, harder punches.

But it's like he says, people want to see him vulnerable. "They want me to get a bloody nose, a broken rib and then get my hand raised," he says.

Historically, vulnerability in fighters -- athletes period -- is an endearing trait to the public for some reason. I never liked Andre Agassi in 1994 when he was destroying everything.

But after he plummeted outside the Top 100 and came back to win Grand Slams, I was his biggest fan. When Ali was invincible, everyone hated him.

Once he got by on little more than heart, struggling to win 8-9 rounds against guys who wouldn't lay a hand on him 10 years prior, everyone loved him!

That's sports fans for you. Mayweather shows little vulnerability, even when he's in trouble.

That said, I agree with what you said regarding his style. He's very disciplined in there. And once he makes his adjustments, his fights usually look like reruns which prompts observers to downplay his opposition.

If there is something I would blame him for it would be his insistence on never ceding any of his power and control. He initially said he would never give Pacquiao 50/50, yet still did that so I give him credit for that.

But other than that, he wants to be the top dog so he will difficult to deal with anyone who doesn't treat him as the complete A-side.

But then again, Pacquiao has been known to be difficult in 90% of his negotiations for the exact same reasons so it's hardly anything new...

But there is absolutely no reason to place any kind of blame whatsoever on Mayweather for sticking to his blood testing guns under the circumstances his 14-day compromise was rejected.

10000 million percent blame goes where you know it should.

It's funny, I initially thought Mayweather was the culprit in this too until I started digging and saw what was up beneath all the filthy layers in this whole disgusting saga.

He's guilty of being an megalomaniac/egomaniac, yes, but he's not guilty of ducking Manny Pacquiao. That's a fallacy with no evidence to support it. None. Zero.

If there is, I'd like to see it.

Unless you count refusing to fight someone (who you're 100% convinced is drugged up) insisting on announced testing "ducking."

Because I know for a fact that he was actively trying to talk to the Pacquiao camp through all kinds of representatives, including his uncle Jeff, all throughout 2011 until finally settling on Victor Ortiz.

This fight reminds me of a Mexican, gangsta' pit-bull vs a Siberian Husky. And I love it. These dudes go to war and they both have awesome attitudes on the way they go about it. I can see Rios getting stopped but I do not see it being a one sided beat down as some are seeing it. Provo is there to be hit all fight long and Rios will graciously welcome your punches to his face so he can let his off. This can go back and forth early and the man with the most endurance of all kinds will come out winning by stoppage down the stretch. Too much will be taken out of the one who gets the worst of it early. Provo has an edge IMO because he is explosive and can get off his punches sooner. I also think he has better stamina than Rios has recently shown. Rios has a nasty left hook and seems to go an extra "all out" when he smells blood in the water. Hard to pick a winner in a fight with these types of styles.
