Whether he was telling the truth or not is a different story.

I imagine the negotiations for this fight was/is a rollercoaster.
Let me dream a lil.

I feel like we can expect an announcement any moment now but I've been feeling that way for weeks. Seems like there's lots of rustling going on behind the scenes. To the point where it seems like the next opponent could be anybody. Which means of course, it'll be Guerrero.

This is all a ploy for Floyd to retire. It is clear to me now.............."It's almost a done deal"...meaning Floyd's career. "Devon is the front runner"....meaning he thinks Devon will carry the sport after he retires.

Floyd has said in the past that he was going to pass the torch to Alexander as the next best p4p after he retires. Floyd knows there are too many people who can beat him now. I suspect he is mainly afraid of both Trout and Canelo because either one of those two guys will likely be facing him in less than 2 fights.

I've been saying that to myself since December 1st "Announcement any day now".

But yes I sense you're right, that we are finally going to get an announcement this weekend. I sincerely hope that's the case.

I'm hoping it's Guererro. I've wanted it to be Guererro for a while.

As long as it's not Alexander I'm happy. Considering whoever it is, I'll be there. And if he fights Alexander it will be so, so so dull

The worst part about it is the friend I'm going with isn't a big Boxing fan at all. Casual, at best.

Imagine the horror of seeing Mayweather-Alexander from a casual standpoint and travelling half way across the world to see it

Bwahahahah!! No way in hell does Mayweather mean that! And I'm sorry but if Devon Alexander is carrying the sport of boxing he's gonna be carrying a coffin! Because boxing will be dead before he's the face of it, we have a better chance of Andre Dirrell being the face of boxing than Devon and his terrible moustache!

Yeah Guerrero will definitely give you your money's worth. I can't knock the fight--it's intriguing style-wise and viable on paper. But it doesn't excite me and I really wish it wasn't on PPV. Being ringside, you won't have that issue and you get to see him live in what's probably one of his final appearances. Maybe you witness history although that's a long shot. I may go my damn self depending on the opponent.

"The negotiations for my fight are almost done," wrote Mayweather. "The front runner is IBF Champion Devon Alexander. It'd be a unification bout at welterweight." [Click Here To Read More]
Schaeffer makes a meaningless comment. If there were negotiations going on, Haymon would be in the middle of them. Then Schaeffer says he has no knowledge of any secret negotiations, and Haymon hasn't told him anything.

Well......if they were secret, Haymon wouldn't be telling him anything, and if he, Schaeffer doesn't know anything, well....again..... why should he....if they are secret??

Good Lord. Team Alexander ALWAYS equals = Kevin Cunningham is saying something. By the way that it's always Kevin whose doing all the talking, you'd think that Kevin was the fighter and Devon was the trainer.

Cunningham saw major $$$ signs when Mayweather mentioned his, whoops, I mean DEVON's name. He wants that career high TRAINERS fee.
