Will Goosen hold a grudge and strongarm Ward with poor fights and small paydays or will he let things go?

I am asking?

Things that make you go hmmm.

I has previously ( http://www.thesweetscience.com/forums/showthread.php?16816-Goosen-files-10-million-dollar-defamation-suit-against-Ward&p=61424&viewfull=1#post61424 ) stated such might occur.

The right thing for GTP to do now, is to withdraw the 10M writ; although such an option (itself) could be used as a bargaining tool to ensure Andre behaves as expected.

All these distractions (even aside from the judgment and how it means Ward must "work" with Dan) will not make it easier for Ward to perform and win; even if he is fed the "right" fights for the best "cost" in a timely manner.

"Come on Shadow cut T some slack. He has a point , Floyd made many excuses. At the time of the so called offer ,Floyd offered red hot MP a 40 million flat fee with no rights. You wouldn't take that at the time if you were MP either. MP calls Floyd out all the time, while Floyd contradicts himself and blames his hate for Arum for not making the fight.

Is interference of existing contracts even legal?
Any way it's sad we are talking about these things rather then the fight itself. The bottom line is if Floyd wanted the fight it would be happening. It really is for Floyd's sake to take the fight. If not, he may have millions but he will always have the asterisk of not taking the fight. His legacy will be affected in a negative way."


I didn't mean to be harsh to Mr. Tony because I appreciate his input.

That said, what rights did he want? It was $40m upfront, which would've accrued to $45m. That's 2.5 fights worth of pay for him. He should've taken it. (Arum wouldn't have allowed it regardless. I don't think it was interference because Floyd told Manny, supposedly, that he should call Bob and get everyone on the same page.)

So yes, if I am Manny and I've wanted to fight someone as bad as I've claimed, if I claim to fight for the fans, for the people to make them happy, and want this guy so bad I'd fight for free (!), then heck yes I take the record purse.

I don't doubt that Manny Pacquiao wants him but it's a moot point when the promoter doesn't. There was no impetus, no incentive for him to do so. If I were Arum, I would've done the exact same thing.

I probably wouldn't have lied so much but deceit kinda comes with the job description; it's promotions! But the bottom line is with my fairly decent understanding of business, financials and margins, I would not make the fight either if I were Arum.

(There's a little known fact with their business relationship. Arum advances a lot of money to Pacquiao in between fights; one million here, two million there. The advance is then deducted from his purse, leaving little left for Manny on fight night. What's interesting about the advance is that Arum funds that with the residual PPV income from cable/satellite that Manny really should be entitled to in the first place. This is one of the reasons a) Floyd left and b) he makes so much more money than Manny, even in fights where their numbers are similar.)

As for Floyd staying silent, Floyd has expressed publicly and privately that he ignored them because he knew they had no intentions of making the fight. If you notice, Deep, they would always talk about Mayweather whenever Manny had a fight signed.

(And the guys on First Take are too ignorant not to realize how disrespectful they are by inviting Manny and an opponent in-studio and then asking them how another guy will do, as if he's just a stand-in, a bump in the road en route to the mega fight.)

The few times they tried to discuss with Top Rank & Co. when both were available, they refused. It's true. And Floyd got sick and tired of it.

All it would do was boost their events by baiting fans with the possible Floyd fight. "They piggybacking off my name," he would say.

To be fair to Arum, I got the impression he kinda thought both parts were in on it, kinda like a "worked shoot" type of thing. "Bait the fans, keep making money and we'll fight when there's nowhere else to go."

Ultimately, you're right. It sucks that we're talking about this BS. We should talking about the hype for their rematch at this stage.

"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."

Dude, I understand your passion and I want to see the fight as much as you but that type of simple minded logic doesn't fly here.

I see that you also failed to address anything I said.

1) What excuses did I list? I gave you the reality, the facts. Not fantasy.

2) Why don't you answer the question? Where would you deliver that pizza. Be honest.

3) "When did Mayweather ever duck him? He signed the contract in December '09. Fact.

"Avoiding him like the plague?"

What evidence is there of that except for ignoring a disgusting PR stunt by Top Rank where the deal they offered was long expired and no other deal had even been discussed?

Another fact: Mayweather offered him a deal, called him out, Tweeted, responded to BS demands from Arum (put up a guarantee! Who's representing you! We need to hear it from Mayweather's mouth!), met with his adviser in Vegas, shoot, he even called the dude directly on the phone. Is that avoiding someone?

How did he duck him? Every time there were ever a dialogue between them, Pacquiao -- the guy who claims to want to fight for free, the guy who said he'd take less, the guy who said he would take the tests -- refused and left the negotiating table.

No matter what people think about it or perceive it, those are the facts.

Again, I appreciate your comment and your input but don't come with that weak deflecting BS about me making excuses. That's boxingscene stuff.

Just answer the question. Would you deliver that pizza to Crip Country or to Hollywood?

As for risking his 0, what do you want him to do? He's better than everyone else. There is no threat to his 0 unless he goes to 168 or 175 where he will probably get injured really badly even in victory. Is that what you want? Is that what he should do?

That has nothing to do with being a "real warrior." It's "real stupid," is what it is.

And when did Ali and Leonard risk everything? When Leonard took on Camacho? Roberto Duran III? Or when Ali took on a novice with less than 10 fights instead of fighting Ken Norton for the fourth time, which split up the heavyweight title for 10 years?

It's kinda like asking the Williams sisters, when they were 1 and 2 by far, to move into the men's ranks because they were too dominant.

Like Brownsugar said, he could go to Mount Olympus and face Zeus himself, outpoint the old the old bastard and people would say Zeus is old and shot.

"Face Lucifer instead!"

It never ends.

Besides, who out there were there for him to fight in May? (Don't say Pacquiao; we already know that's not reality.) The choice was between Khan and Maidana. Some say Maidana won so it warrants a rematch.

For this fight, I'm sure he wanted Cotto but of course they don't want to give up that belt quite yet.

He's fighting by the same rules and principles as any other fighter (in terms of prizefighting) and the pro fighters on here will co-sign that statement in a second.

But even if it were true that he just fights slow, one-dimensional fighters, let me propose this (hypothetical) scenario to you.

Say you live in LA and you work for premium version of Domino's. Your boss asks you to choose between two tasks:

a) Deliver 10 pizzas to Hollywood for $15,000 in Jack Nicholson's neighborhood.

b) Deliver 10 packages to a Crip-infested section South Central for $15,000.

Which one do you take?

If the pizza delivery man claimed to be the best ever pizza delivery man he would deliver the 10 pizzas to Jack in Hollywood and then drive the 20 minutes or so and deliver the other 10 pizza while avoiding as many crips as possible. Upon return to the pizza parlor, the owner would declare Tony the best ever pizza delivery man of all time because he took on all challenges and delivered the pizza hot and in an entertaining way.

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.

"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

"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."
