Karim Mayfield Lobbies For Mayweather Fight

After losing two of your last three fights, many if not most if not nearly all fighters would NOT be lobbying to get THE money fight, a date with Floyd Mayweather. But 34-year-old Karim Mayfield has put out a release stating his case why, as a 19-2-1 boxer, he should get the nod for that September date with “TBE.”

To this I say…points for optimism.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (July 6, 2015) – After pound for pound king Floyd “Money” Mayweather (48-0, 26 KOs) mentioned Karim “Hard Hitta” Mayfield (19-2-1, 11 KOs) as one of his possible opponents for his final contracted fight with Showtime, the San Francisco native says is ready to step up and give Mayweather his first loss.

“I’m always ready to fight anyone anywhere,” said Karim Mayfield. “The fact that the great Floyd Mayweather has mentioned me as someone he wants to fight in September is music to my ears. It would be an honor to fight Floyd in Las Vegas. He’s done a lot for the sport and he’s arguably the best fighter to ever lace em up. My last few fights have been at 140 pounds and I know the extra weight would make me more powerful. I fought Francisco Santana at 152 pounds and gave him his only KO loss. I’m very powerful and comfortable at that weight. I know I would give Floyd all he can handle. My trainer Ben Bautista and I have a game plan we know will be successful against Mayweather. I’d give Floyd his first loss in a highly explosive fight.”

Set for September 12, 2015, Mayweather will fight an opponent TBA at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas. Mayfield, along with Andre Berto (30-3, 23 KOs) are fighters Floyd Mayweather has mentioned as potential opponents. Karim feels he’s the better option.

“No disrespect to Andre Berto, he’s a good fighter and we have a mutual respect for one another, but he’s not as durable as I am. Berto has two losses against opponent’s Floyd has already defeated. I’ve never been dropped, battered or bruised in any of my fights. I bring a rough style to this fight, a style the fans want to see Floyd up against. In addition, the Bay Area is a big media market and I know all my fans here would rise up and support me. My brother La Ron and I, who are independent, sold out my last fight in San Francisco. I’m confident we can bring a big crowd to Las Vegas. It’s only an hour fight away.”

Amir Khan (31-3, 19 KOs), who’s been begging to fight Mayweather since 2014, is another fighter campaigning to fight Mayweather. After sparring Khan on numerous occasions, Mayfield feels Amir is an easier fight.

“Every time I sparred Amir Khan at Virgil Hunter’s gym, I put hands on him,” Mayfield declared. “So bad that Virgil had to stop the sparring sessions. Khan has also been brutally knocked out twice by Prescott and Garcia. The man has no chin and he wouldn’t last twelve rounds with Money Mayweather. He’s definitely the safer route.”

Mayfield, who’s been in camp with Manny Pacquiao, Antonio Margarito and Danny Garcia to name a few, has all the experience needed to give the fans an entertaining fight. He’s beaten many undefeated fighters and has a unanimous decision win against Mauricio Herrera.

“No one can deny my heart and determination to fight the best,” Mayfield continued. “I’ve been the ring with everyone. I soundly beat Herrera, I whooped Pacquiao and Khan in sparring. Shawn Porter refused to step in the ring when he had the choice to fight me or Erick Bone with only one day notice. A lot of fighters have ducked me because I’m a serious threat to anyone.”

Mayfield feels the fans want to see Floyd Mayweather give an African-American fighter a chance to dethrone him. Mayweather’s last seven opponents have been either, Mexican, Argentinean, Filipino or Puerto Rican.

“I think it’s time for the fans to see Floyd give a brotha a shot.” Mayfield concluded. “Shane Mosley and Zab Judah gave Floyd a run for his money. I feel I can do the same but come out victorious.”

I doubt that Money May was ever serious about dancing with "Chest-licking" May. What is Karim going to do to Lil Floyd? Tongue lick him to death! Karim has taking licking an opponent literally. And that is no manly syet. Licking an opponent used to be boxing slanguage for whuppin' an arse. Karim Mayfield has double fudged me up from using that slanguage. Dude should've kept his tongue to himself or his lover. I'm finished with this subject. Because of Karim, licking an opponent ain't what it used to be in boksing slanguage. Holla!

Just to be fair to Karim Mayweather. He said that he ain't lick no _____'s manboobs or chest. He said that he smelled a twat. Just goes to show you. That a report of suggestion can fool your eyes-to-neurons connection. Holla at this:
->https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DvBc9d1xEno. Now that I see the video, I saw no tongue licking, but sniffing. My bad, Karim! But Lil Floyd still ain't gonna dance with you. Maybe he will hire you as a sparring partner. Holla!

Maybe he wasn't licking his chest but it sure looked like it to me, too much face to chest contact for me. Keep your damn lips off any part of my person. ....lol Mayfield had potential at one point, with better management maybe he could have gone further. I thought he rushed himself a bit. I wouldn't mind seeing him against either Lundy, or Barthelemy at 140lbs

Initially it looked the same way to me until Karim told me to look at the tape. Holla at it. As Karim said, he "didn't lick no ___." He sniffed manboobs and chest hairs. Holla!
