"As we've been discussing on one of these recent threads, the dilemna of former WBO Super Bantamweight and WBO Featherweight Champion Juan Manuel Lopez is over. Following a second-round KO loss to Jesus Cuellar on September 11 and after days of deliberation and speaking to boxing friends in Puerto Rico about taking a short break and then coming back, the 31-year-old JuanMa made the decision to retire. He made the decision after speaking to one of his young sons, who begged his father not to fight again.

The loss to Cuellar was Lopez' second straight loss by stoppage. In July, he was stopped by Francisco Vargas in the third round. In his last nine fights, Lopez was 4-5, with all five losses coming by was of stoppage or KO. Even fans of Lopez have to applaud his decision to retire from competitive boxing.

He retires with a record of 34-5 with 31 victories coming by KO or TKO.

That's good news, I hope its for good.

I feel ya! But boksing is broad. The whold nine of your existence is a part of the sweet science, which consists of many sciences, including reading.

It is a fair shot of the author to keep on pounding on Money May, who can read a lot better than a whole lot of English-speaking announcers. When you are a public figure, every hating Jack and Jill are throwing you down da hill. And pouring a pail of toilet water on you.

Reading aloud for a radio show is overkill anyway.

Maybe Money Man is like Moses when God told Moses to read the 10 Commandments.

"Holy syet," the toilet-mouthed Moses probably said.

"How do you expect for me to read that Hebrew scribble jive? I was reared in the house of Pharoah. We read on-rock drawing of birds, animals, humans and spoons and forks and syet. Egyptian script, you know.

l ain't no rocket scientist. My moms put me in a baby basket and sent me down the Nile for Pharoah's wife to find my arse. Now you are talking from outta space and jive telling me to read Hebrewic scribble on a stone. WITF is wrong with You.

"How do I know that you are Yahwah, any darn way? I've been fooled my whole darn life. I thought I was Egyptian until I killed, and a gawdd@mn Hebrew slave sold me out for straws and chicken fee. I don't being snitching-arse Hebrew.

Besides, gawddangit ! Why did I have to take off my shoes up on this dang mountain top, anyway. Now my pucking toes are freezing. OMG! And since you can talk to me from way up high behind clouds and syet, can you holla at putting a PPV screen up on this d@mn mountain top so that I see the fights from Pharoah's grand arena?

"Italian tRoast is bytching and raging again and is ready Freddie to torch some arses in the grand Windy City bosking stadium of Pharoah."

"Shut your arse up," The LOUD, ANGRY VOICE from above told Moses.

"I don't even know who You Are," Moses fired his big trap.

"I AM WHO I AM you little bytch-@$$," The VOICE got on Its holla. "I See that I'm Going to Have a problem with your arse. But I'm going to Use your bytch-reared-in-the-house-of-Pharoah arse anyway. But you won't be entering the Promised Land. Your hardheaded arse is going to be wondering around the desert."

And yall know the rest of the story. The world has been full of it ever since. And now people and scribes are worrying about if Money May cannot read radio script.

WTF! Nobody with a brain gives a d@mn. They would much rather admire or hate him for whuppin' arses in dat squared jungle and making over a half of billion bucks from that and other business adventures. Holla!

"Canelo is signed with GB he has already stated that he wants dates close to the Mexican holidays (not necessarily on the same day but it could happen in a different venue like Texas).

Even if its within a month or two of the Floyd PPV event it will saturate the market enough to result In disappointing sales.
Floyd and Hayman will have to plan effectively to get a sure fire attraction.
Canelo is going to be aggressive about it and Oscar will oblige.

If the returns from Floyds recent fight results in a loss there won't even be another Floyd fight unless the opponent practically guarantees the demand.
Floyd wasn't being vague about his next fight for no reason while discussing his next ring return at the post fight conference.
The fight was good in my opinion but he didn't seem to be as vibrant as he normally is. I can understand those who were disappointed.... I watched it again this morning before clocking in.
He was sloppy in spots but made the action look easier and more routine this time"


Yes he clearly won, but held and stalled and bored us all to a victory.

if it is free on tv I am tuning in to watch, if it is ppv for 75$, then NO thanks Floyd.

I am not giving you my money to watch you fight that way.

I literally was falling asleep from the 8th round on, I was nodding off trying to stay awake...

I missed the in ring post fight interviews because I was put to sleep.

I don't think there has ever been a fighter who is more akin to strife than Floyd Mayweather.
If the public scorn for the embattled boxer gets any hotter,... Mayweather will find himself stewing in the same pot of disapproval Michael Vic was in several years ago.

He already had a ready made audience of people who love to hate him... I'm sure HBO has no love left for him either.
And due to his head strong tendancies he continues to provide fuel for his detractors to use for the raging bonfire.

Interesting article.... Will damage control kick in soon enough to stop the public bloodletting. Maybe, maybe not.

I wouldn't say considering May-Pac a superfight is a joke, Frank. Presumably you're referring to a degradation in their skill levels (Note: I ain't sayin' skill-set. Not for all the tea in China am I EVER saying skill-set...unless to point out how I ain't gonna say it).



After all, Manny dominated many people's P4P no. 3, he shut out Rios, who is/was a world-level operator despite what anyone may say to the contrary, and he beat Bradley with consummate ease in the first fight, as the whole universe knows.



Floyd continues to win the majority of his rounds against whoever is in front of him, and remains no. 1 P4P on the vast majority of lists.



So that's probably 2 of the top 3, and defintely 2 of the top 5, P4P guys. That's still a superfight imo, even after all this time. Though not the fight it should have been, I'll grant you that!

Radam is going with his homeboy, just as I am going with my homeboy, Chris Algieri, on November 22, against Da' Manny. After Algieri beats Da' Manny on November 22, then beats him in a 2015 rematch, there will be no talk, no need for a $$$May v Pac-Man fight.



It will only be an afterthought as boxing fans wonder what could have been six years earlier.

I don't think Groves will have too much trouble this Saturday. After being stopped (controversially) and knocked out, his people found a guy with a decent record (no wins over anyone of note) who cannot punch. Smart move...

I could see Groves getting Bika next. Bika is rugged but has started to look shopworn. He'll make it an ugly fight but its one that's very winnable for Groves. Then he'd move on to challenge someone, probably Dirrell, in 2016 and probably in US.

He certainly needs a fight that will renew interest in him. An attention grabber.

"Who is out there that would make a good profit and an interesting fight?

Cotto for the mw title at 155lbs? no thanks

Garcia? I would be interested but ppv profit wise, it will fail.

GGG at mw for a title? Hell yes, a legit mw champion and a huge step up for Floyd would receive respect and a legit intrigue whether Floyd can pull it off.

He will not fight Pac, so to me GGG is the only credible fight to receive the money Showtime is looking to make."


If he went up to middleweight I think it'd be at least an interesting watch. Seeing how Floyd copes at 160- whether he can impose his style and skill on their size and power (two attributes he DEFINITELY lacks).

I'd watch Cotto, and I'd love too see GGG K him TFO!

Either that, or a move down to 140. He'd carry more power, and it could make for a much more interesting fight- maybe Provodnikov or Matthyse.

These are purely dreams though- he wont fight a challenging fighter at 147, let alone move divisions to fight a hard fight. That's the actuality of the reality.

I will be there not far from the action to watch St GG get back in the ring. He's a smart young man and is working harder than ever to get back onto the biggest stages in boxing. Two knockout losses would have stopped many but the best continue to strive to achieve their dreams. From what I've seen and heard George has had a great camp with quality sparring so this should be a good display and reminder of his potential in this division.

Can't wait for this one.

I just don't see Pacquiao and Mayweather happening. I guess anything is possible but if they couldn't get it done five years ago when everyone would have made a boat load of money its hard to envision the fight ever happening. Just too many obstacles to overcome...From tv issues, to promoter issues, to drug testing, to who gets paid how much, etc just does not seem feasible to occur. Ever...

Sometimes as sports fans we base our opinions with our hearts and not our heads, I can personally say that I've been guilty of that many times before.



Ever fighter has flaws and certain things that give them trouble. Manny P is an excellent swarmer and throws tons of punches from a lot of different angles and his footwork is Stellar, but he's had trouble with Counter-Punchers with Great Timing, if you look at the Morale Fight he lost and the 4 Marquez fights you'll see evidence of that, Floyd just happens to be better at timing and counters than both Morales and Marquez...





Floyd on the other hand has had a history of getting caught by southpaws and he's not the busiest fighter so you can steal rounds against him by outworking him & constant pressure, and those are Things that Manny P can bring... Pac Man throwing 70-80 punches a round from all over the place can give Floyd problems...







I can see them fighting at this stage being a "pick Em" fight in my opinion, but to suggest that Manny Would KO Floyd after he went 24 Rounds with Timmy B and didn't KO him and Bradley is 10X easier to catch than Floyd or to Suggest that Floyd would Dominate Pac after seeing him Struggle with the Caveman Maidana is an opinion based on your heart and not your "Smarts!"

"Floyd looked good against Canelo, he was active, threw enough punches per round to keep interest and boxed the young kids ears off. However he looked his age against Chino in both bouts.

He is definitely chasing the money, and I can't blame him for that.

His next two fights he better pick a boxer like Canelo, not a mauller, he is too old for that style..


I think next up will be Danny Garcia, more of a boxer with good power, but not a guy who will fight on the inside and try to bully and rough Floyd up.

One thing is for certain, each passing PPV declines in profit more than the last one.

Showtime is losing money on "money' Mayweather."

I'm with Deep on this one. The fight will be delayed and postponed until Deontay gets bored and takes a different fight. The Bermane will take a more straightforward defence, earning himself and King some money. King knows how to exploit a heavyweight champion for dosh, and I'm sure he knows the best was is not to rush him into a highly dangerous fight.

As a fight fan, I'm unfortunately used to not seeing the bouts I want to see.

One day though, The Bronze Bomber will be tested... One day

BANG BANG BANG: "The Fight Game" Returns, With More Punching Power

The show, which debuted in May 2012, is still a work in progress, not surprisingly, perhaps, since it ran so intermittently, once every couple months. Now, Lampley tells TSS, the show, a half hour program, will screen once a month, til the end of the year, at least, and that will likely result in a quicker solidification of what works, content-wise, and rhythmically.

And this past weekend on September 13th, Floyd won a unanimous decision over Maidana in their much hyped rematch. That's three fights inside of one calendar year for Mayweather, which is much busier than the one or two fights a year he was averaging prior to 2013. During his in ring post fight interview...
