Okay, as of this post, there is just a little over 90 minutes remaining to send in your ballot for the top PxP Ratings. They are that close that YOUR ballot will make the difference.



Finish strong.

Schaefer is stuck ,he is still under contract to Oscar. TsAH is going to have to give Oscar something really big to release the Swiss banker. Which fighters will tsAH allow to sign multifight deals with GBP?

Floyd's last fight failed and once Canelo heads to HBO like Hopkins ,Espinoza will be gone along with tsAH and his influence to put on tune up fights on premium cable.

Floyd has to blame someone. Ellerbe was the ultimate yes man. It's too late Floyd, admit it. It's all downhill from here.

As soon as Espinoza is fired who will tsAH tell what to do?

I think Floyd is internalizing the pain and grief of being ground down to a pulp by the media..
..in addition to needing a scapegoat for the money teams first independent promotional venture.( a fiasco)
Floyd has fought and struggled to "do it his way and cut out the middle man" since the beginning.... This should have been his coming out party.

But they did it with a shot fighter (Angulo) and a co-main event that involved the booking of the most anti-entertaining-entity known to boxing .....Miguel Vasquez. (We won't even speak aloud about who allowed the matchup between Santa Cruz and his former sparring partner).

They must have thought they were getting a bargain.

And the most egregious insult was booking Mayweather into a hostile interview on CNN. Where Floyd was accused, abused, and refused by the news casting giant and his video feed was cut while the newscaster lobbied the audience to boycott his PPV event right before the Maidana fight.

What a welcome!

So much for free advertising.

Also his 80 year old cut man (The legendary cut man and hand rapping expert Garcia) was miffed because Floyd used "Do it All" Bob to wrap his hands). And has apparently flown the coup (possibly).

If you notice Ellerbe wasn't in the corner.

Change the team ....change the perception. Erase the past by disposing the baggage.

Lionel Richie left the Comadores... Diana Ross left the supremes, Beyonce left Destinies Child.
Apparently Floyd wants to make some cuts of his own as we all know..... " $hit rolls downhill".

I ain't getting into this one. But for a while I told people that Dick Schaefer was playing Big Money Oscar and was getting too "BIG for his britches" and would be "syetcanned."

Outta TMT, I have been hearing that "a lot "n*gig*shyt" is happening "with gay-@$$ Ellerbee."

You can pull up some old "Hustle Boss('$)" interviews and hear Pops Joy Mays saying: "My son is gonna get rid of Ellerbee.... Ellerbee is gay. And my son is gonna call it a day." Holla!

And to this day, the cowards that be have never hollered about the hatred and bloody murder attempts on Canadian Tommy Burns for getting beat by the "grinning coon dark destroyer" Jack Johnson.

And sickos just tar babied the "White Hope" Jim Jeffries something crazy. They murdered the man's spirit with their meanspiritness of telling the Ohio-born part gypsy, part Indian, part white man that he would be never fully accepted as a whole white man unless he killed the "gold-teethed, grinning coon." Even the then U.S. President abandoned Jeffries, since the Prez's nephew was Jack Johnson's promoter and homeboy Tex Rickard. I'm gonna holla because I'm no coward to optical illusions and TsOTT.

James Jeffries was more of a fall guy than Primo Carnera became. The bigots that be knew that a 19-0-2 fixed-fights former heavyweight world champion who had been retired for four years couldn't beat a super-skilled active for 13 years and with 80 bouts -- counting the official one with the non official -- heayweight champion of the world killa.

Imagine the trial and tribulations that Floyd Patterson had to go through when the U.S. Pres John F.Kennedy told him that he had to beat Night Train Liston: "You must beat this convict as an example for the good Negroes," grinning Prez "Jack" told the terrified-of-Sonny Floyd P.

YUP! The "1/2-of-billionaire" Money May ain't going through diddly squat, compared to the above. He makes his own bed hard. And he's gonna get a bad back. Hehehe! Holla!"

"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.

"Interesting take there Radam. I have watched the Castillo fight and I cannot say that Floyd won that fight. I am not so sure he lost, but he did not win it. I did find it interesting that Lederman who is a pretty good scorer had it for Castillo 7-5 and he said he thought it was pretty obvious.



As for Cotto, again I will state that Cotto is my dude and I am the #1 Cotto fan. However, as bad as I wanted him to beat Floyd and as competitive a fight as it was, Floyd took it. What made that one pretty clear was that Floyd closed the show in that fight. He took Cotto to the woodshed in 11 and 12.



I also see that alot of people think Oscar beat Floyd which I think is ridiculous. That one was a clear 8-4 in my eyes. What say you on that one Mr. G?"




I thought it was a razor close bout that "Pretty Boy" Floyd won 6-5-1. But I would not have bytched if it had been a draw or win for Big Money Oscar. Holla!

"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.

"Just more arrows aimed at Mayweather. I care about his ability to read about as much as I care about this author's reflections on life's inanities.

Comment on his boxing. But this other stuff is a pound short and a day late."


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. And going for da kill.

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 like knowing I'm a snitching-arse Hebrew. Now I have to tell Pharoah syet that You are going to be saying.

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 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!

He followed that up on May 3rd of this year with a majority decision over former junior welterweight title holder Marcos Maidana. 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...
