"Randall Bailey can really say he can put dudes out the game for a while. Well at least one"

My man! Hell yeah, dude landed like two punches all night. And them two strikes broke Mike's face in like three places. I was there in the arena. It's one of the sickest things I've ever seen in my life.

Between Raisin Bran and roid-fed cow milk, you are stuffing up all of your arteries with bad fat, developing a high cholesterol problem and starting racing heart-beat problems that is jacking up your blood pressure and will send a stroke right to your noggin.



That type of bad-sugar-and-foul-milk breakfast is killing you slowly. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBLxcYpB9-A. Holla!

Its a shame we have to talk about blaming people why the Fight isn't happening. We should be talking about what a great fight it was or it wasn't.



Mayweather can fight who he wants is a fact and Showtime and HBO could come to an agreement if Floyd wanted it. There are many statements from Floyd that contradicts him wanting the fight. MP calls out Floyd all the time and Floyd just thanks Al Haymon and says he hates Bob Arum and won't do business with him.



There really isn't much to say except its sad the Fight is not happening.

Hehehe! Different Mike. The rapper one is about 5-foot-6, 230-pounds of diabetes and love Texas barbecue, tatters, banana pudding and soda that is known as Dr. Pepper. That doc had to have been a quack. Holla!

"How many different excuses did Mayweather make for not fighting Pacquaio before the Bob Arum excuse ? Manny and his trainer have always said they wanted the fight, Mayweather just has excuses ! Just my humble opinion, of course !"

It's true but the trainer and the fighter don't have the final say.

Mayweather only asked for a blood test. Arum was always a problem. He just got fed up with Arum after all of the nonsense when he tried to make the fight May 5, 2012 and through intermediaries throughout 2011.

He was basically pimping Mayweather, using his name to build fights with no intention of actually making it happen.

Just take a look at this list: http://www.fighthype.com/pages/content11512.html

And before thinking the source may be biased, just keep in mind that this is a compilation collected from a variety of independent sources, quoted directly from the horse's mouth.

Glad you're posting Froggy! We need your voice on here more!

"Mayweather fans should read this? Mayweather fans know this!!!



We also know the reason why the Mayweather / Pacman fight has not happened is because of .....



WAIT FOR IT....



B O B A R U M!!!



Roach has said it!!! Ariza has said it!!! His actions have proved it!!!



When Mayweather was being sentenced and he had no idea how long he would be sent away HE went to the judge and begged them to give him extension to make that fight.



Bob Arum came up with every excuse in the book why the fight couldn't happen.



Look at today....MANNY PACQUAIO has been KNOCKED OUT. His PPV #'s have reflected a decline. And right after Pacman beat Bradley he says tell MAYWEATHER to call us.



The PPV King has to call you? Really? If Bob wanted this fight he would be working day and night to make it happen. He is milking Pacman for all he is worth.



OH and believe me I am not letting PACMAN off the hook.



He just RE UPPED with TOP RANK knowing MAYWEATHER will not fight TOP RANK fighters. Really?"

Oh, stop it. You're making too much sense. Too much reason. Ain't nobody got time for that.

Do you mean to tell me that the apocalypse will not happen in December of 2012 either?

Oh. I guess it did. #ouch

You're a brave fella. Welcome to the sweetest forum of them all!

Seriously, though, it's just like that. But there's smoke and mirrors everywhere.

"I am very happy to find out I am your friend, Shadow, back at ya ! but I still agree with the article, nobody can stop Mayweather from fighting anybody who will make people money ! Just my humble opinion of course !"

Of course. I love your posts and wish you would post more!

Yes, that premise is by and large correct. While Showtime does have some right of refusal, it's not like he can just go fight Selcuk Aydin -- not if he wants those purses, anyway.

(There's a large misconception about these purses. Showtime's function in the contract is ADVANCING the fight night purse. They then recoup the principal through PPV -- hence the "revenue sharing" agreement they vaguely reported. Which is practically what HBO did. But they just committed to doing it for six fights. SHO doesn't pay for the undercard or anything like that. If you want to look at it another way, it's actually a similar deal framework to what Mayweather offered Pacquiao in early 2012.)

At this stage of his career, his chief objective is to maximize revenues. Whoever's available, able and willing that they feel can garner the most buys is the one they will go with.

Golovkin is a darling among hardcores but until he at least has a fight at 154, there is no point in even discussing it from a sporting standpoint.

Bernard Hopkins insists he can make 160 and has publicly challenged Golovkin for a while now, over a year. Why aren't the writers pushing that?

From a business standpoint, Golovkin's team is simply using the oldest trick in the book: tie your name to the top guy and have the fans run with it.

They know as well as anyone that contracts make it a non-starter. If they didn't they wouldn't have resigned without even fielding offers from Showtime.

FWIW, this is one of the same reasons Mayweather gets furious with other promoters that hatch themselves onto his name knowing damn well that a fight can't be made.

One such example was Lou DiBella -- shortly after the whole 50/50 nonsense with Mayweather and Pacquiao -- completely trolled the media by stating he would give Mayweather 80% of the pot.

I know my fellow Crimson is no fool so I can only assume he thinks the public is. Not even Cotto got 20%.

DiBella knows for a fact that this deal wouldn't even be considered. But he also knows the public will run with any slightest indication of Mayweather ducking so he just reaped the benefits of the publicity it gave him, DBE and Martinez.

And you also saw what happened when Andre Ward called K2's "anyone up to 175" bluff. Only then did they clarify their position and admitted that Golovkin, after all, too is a prizefighter.

"You're right, my Froggy friend. Showtime would love it.



But you're forgetting HBO who has paper on those two guys: HBO! They don't give a flying **** what you and I want, think or desire about those two match-ups.



You think those guys are just going to let them fight elsewhere after signing them up?



Keep in mind that HBO is the same entity that didn't want to show his February fight, yet denied other broadcasters to show it, too!



These are the same guys who really created the divide in the boxing world by boycotting the largest roster of fighters in boxing by far.



And keep in mind, those two guys all signed with HBO after Floyd signed his deal.



And "giving boxing fans what they want for a change?" If it wasn't for Showtime, we wouldn't see Mayweather as active as he's been in about a decade. We'd still see the same once-ever-18 months crap he'd been doing.



Before people started bitching about SHO like Judith Harper bitching about Alan, people need to forget that Showtime, prior to Stephen Espinoza taking the helm, was a second-tier network that only showed reject fights HBO didn't want.



I'm just waiting for people to come out and sue Mayweather and/or Espinoza for the birth of the ebola virus."

I finally got to see the Porter-Brook fight and it was close. Porter is a strong, aggressive, quick fighter. I had heard of Brook before but never seen him box. Kell Brook is good and he displayed alot of patience and skill while connecting in his target shots. He did blend in his holding, but he made up for that with his precision shots. The fight was close and l'd like to see a rematch. Shawn Porter will be back.ln the meantime, l like to see that fight between Keith Thurman and Kell Brook, Thurman will take care of Brook!

I like Ruslan, he is a powerful slugger. I think he narrowly lost to Chris Algeri, who outboxed Ruslan, but this will probably be a easier fight for him. Rios doesn't box, he just likes to brawl and smother, but Ruslan is going to beat the heck out of Rios. Just might be the lesson Rios needs! Rios might be able to hang for a awhile but wait till the fight is over and see how Rios face looks!

Rios is already slurring his words and has been for the last year. Sometimes its not as pronounced. After his last outing against Chavez it was barely noticable.



Maked me wonder if he's making a conscious effort to completely sound out his words.

"This article is spot on. Mayweather can fight who he wants to, not who the fans want him to. Fighting MP or GGG is a health risk. Lil Floyd will already be in the HOF so why should he risk his health? He already wears the TBE hat so it is what it is.


Health is more important than anything," Mayweather said. "Because guess what? When my career is over, if I'm hurt because of something that has happened in a fight, I can't come to you and say, 'I need (money).' ""


Deep, good point. But the reason he said health is because he was making the implication that his foe was juiced up. He just can't outright say it because that leads to litigation.

As for Frank, we need to stop discussing this Golovkin fantasy. He's two weight classes above and fighting in a different league (HBO). They both have long-term deals. There is NO way to get around that, feasibly. In theory yes but in reality no.

Tyson-Lewis was a one-off thing, in part because Showtime had advanced Tyson soooooo many millions that they needed to recoup so they said "to hell with it."

Mayweather-Golovkin doesn't do more than 1.2 million buys. The networks won't even consider it with Pacquiao (well, HBO might since they'd get cut in on a deal where there's no need for them), which could do up to 2 million buys or maybe more.

And lastly, Floyd doesn't fight who he wants. Showtime has right of refusal. He can't just rematch Augustus. Or dig up Sharmba Mitchell.

It has to be a viable name with some sort of built-in or built fanbase coming off a good performance.

The list is pretty short:

Cotto
Canelo
Danny Garcia

But he only needs two or three more.
