"He would not win today, or the fight would be. In 2016, at 39 years old, he would not win in 12 rounds. He might in that three rounds of fighting in the O-Games. Holla!"
I just want to be sure RG, you mean Mayweather would not win, right ?
"I don't think the fight will happen. But if it does, it will be more than irrelevant - it will be among the biggest (and certainly among the most cynical) ripoffs in the history of the sweet science. We all check expiration dates before plunking down our money, at least when it comes to cans of soup or jugs of milk. But not when it comes to boxing matches. Anyway, casual fans don't, not those so misguided and uninformed that they've actually bought into Mayweather's TBE nonsense, an act that's about as fresh as Lawrence Welk and his bubbles. This fight should have taken place three or four years ago. It didn't, precisely because Mayweather knows he would have lost, though it's true that he'd almost certainly win today (or in 2016) - a victory that would prove exactly nothing."

"When Canelo ditches Showtime for HBO, that's when the bosses will call Espinoza into the office and tell him to clean out his desk. Maybe he can join the Swiss banker and hang around the Mayweather gym."
I like how Canelo wants to go head to head against Floyd with ppv's....
Hopefully it will drive down the prices.

@tRoast. Classy. Love ya, man.Reply
"Hehehehe! I don't know how you did, but you did. Are you hollering at my boy magic man/master illusionist David Blaine? Dude is over here in the P-Islands and he somehow straight-up stole my thought and proved it by letting you write similar to what I was going to be posting: "Muthasucka is the 'Haitian Inflation,' not the 'Haitian Sensation.' He ought to come to the P-Islands and holla at a dieting vocation...If he doesn't cut out the hogging, he will ready for D-Wild cremation...."
I do not believe in magic. So Imma just say that you and David B somehow jived and connived my thoughts. And probably sneaked in a phone to one another. If dat illusionist muthamagic dude does it again, I will be calling your show Friday, and telling you that I BELIEVE in MAGIC. Hehehe! Holla!"
Lol. I have a tap on your phone. I heard you talking about the 'Haitian Inflation," so I stole it before you could use it!
While it looks like the top spot in the PxP Ratings is nailed down, a few points still separates many of the other positions. Your ballot could be the one which moves somebody up--or drops them quicker than a GGG right to the chin.
You've got the rest of today. If you haven't done your list, today is the day.
The new TSS PxP List will be up tomorrow morning.
Big Up . . . . OBC.

Best of luck with your woman.Reply
I'm with you Robert Curtis. $75 is too much for a **** poor PPV. I don't watch 'em. The last PPV I ordered was Floyd-Ortiz. I went out to watch Floyd vs Canelo. I was thinking of going out this past Saturday but I started watching the Dallas Buyers Club with my daughter and I just stayed home. I looked online when the movie was over. The fight was in the 9th and not much had happened. Another UD for Floyd, bad reviews everywhere. No way I'm buying the next Pac fight either. I stick to the HBO and Showtime. The upcoming Hopkins-Kovalev fight will outshine both PPV cards guaranteed.
Welcome back you plummy bastard, keep it coming.
1. Floyd Mayweather
3. Andre Ward
4. G. Rigondeaux
5. Chocolatito Gonzales
9. Mikey Garcia

Awesome Dawson had a chance against Trout. He had speed and straightforward precision. The first knockdown was impressive. However, Austin created good angles and eventually assumed control of the fight.Reply
I see Lomachenko is growing on people . He is something very special.Reply
Espinoza will be fired this year. tsAH tells him what to do and it's not working out.Reply
Floyd will retire soon enough and will never fight his nemesis, The honorable congressman ,MP.
Those Money Hungry girls Floyd pays off are aging him. LITT Floyd Mayweather. Long In The Tooth.
tsAH does not want a purse bid. He is behind the scenes making moves. He is also sending Stiverne, Peter Lugar steaks to keep him heavy. Don King wants an easy defense or two before BS is put in a live fight. Between tsAH and Don King I don't see this fight happening anytime soon.Reply
"Hmm. Why do you feel that? I just spoke with Wilder. He said everything is on track for a purse bid on October 1.
We shall see.
For one because it was already postponed for a vague reason...
secondly, I am looking forward to it as that is just my luck...ha
In the 2016 Olympic Games against one another. Pros will be able to scrap in Brazil in O-Games in 2016. Doc Wladimir K says that he will rumble in the O-Games. Maybe with D-Wild will be representing the USA, and even B-Ware will be representing Haiti. Holla!Reply
Mayweather cannot continue to fight public opinion, the press, and litigate his lawsuits. He's as conflicted as the character who played the Gay Christian Vampire Reverend on HBO's "True Blood".
According to an article I read Warren Buffet was advised not to participate in Floyds ring walk after the fight. Others are calling for a Floyd Boycott...and the movement is gradually gaining traction
My daughter who normally watches all of Floyds fights didn't even watch the last one.
Floyd has had an amazing career as well as made some amazing mistakes but I cannot comprehend Floyd fighting (and winning against top talent) in 2016,
Heavy is the head who wears the P4P Crown.
It will be interesting to see what kind of note he can close out his career on.
"Feeling so delinquent. I see a few fights here and there. Drove down to Temecula to watch Austin Trout at Pechanga not long ago. I will try to get my reluctant butt back on here. But at 75 bucks a PPV, I don't think I can keep current and remain an honest, boxing-watching citizen. I've also got a new girlfriend who might be the one. So glad that you all time greats are keeping this website alive."
Its been a long time Bobby C. Nobody could utilize the word "bubble gum" in as many creative ways as you could in a sentence.
I'm.hearing Trout is so hungry to get back to the top he wants to fight Charlo now?
I hope he can make the fight, its a great cross roads fight.
I favor Charlo in that one. Welcome back.
Hey Bobby C!Reply
Booby C back from the dead!!!Reply
"You are one lucky dude. I'm surprised that your gums didn't get infected and that toxic pus and fungus didn't cause blood poisoning and holla at your brain. Many pugs, even kids -- under 21 -- have died because of blood poisoning initiated by a loose, infected tooth. Holla!"
Yep...It happened during the wild days of my tumultuous youth. I had money but no dental insurance. If I had the slightest bit of pain, odor, swelling or pus I would have sprinted.... Not walked to the nearest clinic.
Luckily the break occurred midway down the root and was never exposed to the open air... I don't know how but I knew intuitively it would heal.
No pain ...no fighting and no complications.... A year later there was no evidence the injury ever happened.
As an added bonus the tooth absorbed the shock of the blow and I didn't get hurt.
The guy I was fighting was a lot bigger and had expected the heavy blow to turn the tide of the battle we had been engaged in for a good part of the morning ... No hollering or historionics...... Just fisticuffs and an intense focus on emerging victorious.
Neighbors were awakening and pulling up a stoop to watch as they ate breakfast.
and HBO wasn't required..
After he landed his best shot I just smiled and told him " hey this is fun isn't it " . and I meant it.
...at that point, he just stopped, looked at his watch and took off running.
I tried to persue but had been partying for two days prior....after a few steps into my sprint I dropped to a knee being thoroughly exhausted. My body just gave out.
I crashed at my buds house around the corner and slept for two days.
I'm lucky big man ran....lol.
Floyd has a lot more serious concerns to worry about than potentially missing teeth.. T. Hauser wrote an article earlier about why fans shouldn't buy any more of Floyds PPV bouts. And why Warren Buffet didnt participate in Floyds ring exit. There is no way Espinoza is not feeling the heat.
"The cocnut-oil fried chicken & duck sounds awesome. I really am going to see if I can look up a recipe for it, though I realize yours is a Grannie Special.
I used to eat those Bean Pies on visits to Deer Lake, sitting around the table with Ali and his crew. I didn't think I'd like it, but I loved it from my first taste.
Still, your morning tea concoction does not sound too pleasing. Still, my curiosity is getting the best of me. What are the ingredients and how much of each goes into this elixir?
Oh, yeh, this is a boxing site, not a cooking site--that's over on the Martha Stewart Channel!
So, I am asking for this recipe in order to have it while I watch some DVR'd fights in the morning.
Another 9,000 posts, Radam! Keep 'em coming.
Since you are a city cat, I will give you the short cut.
Get a 16oz can of pure or organic coconut the with water the pulp. (In the provinces of the P-Islands, we use a real coconut freshly just picked from the tree.) Pour it a jug. Get a hand full of raspberry, dump them in the jug. Add an eighth spoon of cardamom power, maca power and red pepper flakes. Stick the concoction in a cold place or fridge over night.
Boil it for five minute or microwave for about three the next morning. Drinks up. And don't get punked if you burn a bit in the eyes, mouth and inside your body. Chew up and chow down the raspberry and coconut and red pepper flakes. BTW, if you cannot tolerate the bitter taste, you can a packet of stevia sugar or organic honey.
Plaque in your cranium, veins, eye socket, teeth, torso arteries and extremities are actually being desolved. And your blood flow is picking back up to the natural flow of 30,000 time+ a minute through your complete body. Your blood pressure eases down, your energy shoot up, your ding-a-ling gets hard for no reason. And your total blood cholesterol starts a kick-arse drop.
This one 57-year-old Yank who came to the P-Islands with a high total blood cholesterol of 240 is down to 160 in just a month of drinking that one concoction. Holla!
"Could just be a bust up lip and cut mouth. I didn't see much footage of the post fight interview with Floyd. Maybe he lost a tooth. Maybe he didn't loose a tooth.
The boxing world will keep spinning, whatever's going on/in/ coming out of Floyd Joy Mayweather Jr's mouth!"
No doubt. Nothing stop the pug world from spinning and pretending will never be ending. And da game will always have a new beginning. Holla!
"This is an intriguing scrap, hopefully these two make it happen.
I have a feeling one way or another it does not go down"
Hmm. Why do you feel that? I just spoke with Wilder. He said everything is on track for a purse bid on October 1.
We shall see.
"Of course not! My list is my list, love it or hate it, that's my belief.
It should be three Americans really- Andre Ward is hanging on by the skin of his teeth- it was pure kind heartedness on my part, in these dying hours of the day, to allow him in."
I don't hate it, I love it because it is a bit different than the usual ! I looked back at my list after that post, and I have three Americans on my list !
"Not really RG....it means nothing to me..... Its not that serious and we all know Floyd isn't perfect. Im simply Saying that so far I haven't seen any evidence about it or heard any reports. I'm sure something will leak the next few days.
Sugar Ray Leonard had a false front tooth that he inserted after the fight concluded... It comes with the territory and is a relatively common injury.
I was hit in the mouth during a fight once. The front tooth was bent back about 45 degrees, the tooth was still connected but broken at the root.
I kept pushing the tooth in place with my tongue and within a year it grew back into the root and became straight and firmly embedded.
Had me worried there for a while ...lol."
You are one lucky dude. I'm surprised that your gums didn't get infected and that toxic pus and fungus didn't cause blood poisoning and holla at your brain. Many pugs, even kids -- under 21 -- have died because of blood poisoning initiated by a loose, infected tooth. Holla!
