Post Comments Thread For: Fighting Words — Only Time Might Defeat Mayweather

by David P. Greisman - You couldn’t avoid the marketing.

They had to mention that Floyd Mayweather was older and smaller. They had to note that Canelo Alvarez was younger and heavier and punched harder. They had to sell this bout as a crossroads fight of sorts.

You couldn’t avoid the marketing, but you could ignore it.

You could ignore it by reminding yourself that all of those characteristics that generally would have been to a fighter’s disadvantage were actually to Mayweather’s benefit.

He is 36 now, has been wearing boxing gloves for nearly his entire life and has been a pro fighter for nearly half of it. This is an age and a point in this line of work at which most would be showing signs of declining, suffering defeats and standing in against less-experienced opponents for less money — hoping to prolong his career, or at least to pick up another paycheck.

Not Floyd Mayweather.

He remains undefeated, a winner of 45 fights against 44 foes, a titleholder in five divisions and a lineal champion in four. He has taken on and taken out 19 men who held world titles at the time, who had won them before or would win them after. His competition still struggles to compete with him. They may have their moments, but never do those moments come when the name of the winner is read. Nineteen of his fights have gone to the judges. Only two of those 57 scorecards have failed to be in his favor.

He got paid $41.5 million [Click Here To Read More]

I totally agree with your p4p rankings, Pac is definitely above Floyd. - Neutral

You only think of him as hype because of what Floyd made him look , but Floyd made JMM look just as bad and we saw that he is a real force at elite level , its not Canelo or JMM its Floyd , when you want to box Floyd your going to get embarrassed .

Canelo is a good fighter you watch what he does over the next 5 years , people are always down playing the opposition because Floyd makes them look so bad , these fighters a part of the best currant fighters out there .

People are always trying to bring Floyd back to the field , instead of seeing how far ahead of it he really is .

Castillo and ODLH already defeated him. They were robbed. Canelo was slow because of weight drain and still Floyd couldnt hurt him, just outjabbed him and ran the last two rounds. Margarito or Williams could have beaten him but he was afraid to fight them. So would Pacman. If you throw punches in bunches and make it a brawl, you win. Guerrero forgot to do it. Ortiz was actually bullying him but was cheapshotted.

i never have the impression floyd will stop anyone. his only recent KO's are off a cheapshot and against a british drunk. floyd has a better chance of winning a heavyweight belt then he did scoring a KO last night.

That's what you don't get m JMM was the same weight he was against Pac and Floyd was a pound lighter than Manny was .

You don't understand the conditions , you waffle about weight in fights between two great counter punches where weight is not used , Floyd just showed you skills with heavier guys and showed the exact same skills with an ATG from a lower division , those guys beat Manny , Canelo would flog Manny at 152 , with Floyd they are no contest , open your dam eyes to whats happening at both ends of the scale with Floyd , he does the same to all unless he decides to stand toe to toe to toe as in Cotto , and he told us prior to the fight he was going to do it , WFT work this sht out its not hard .

JMM wants nothing to do with fighting Floyd again at any weight , Nacho said you cant beat Floyd with a bat , and you hang on missing the weight by a pound , because that's the only negative you can harp on , all the evidence says Floyd will school JMM at any weight .

Your in denial kid .

all the evidence says floyd queefed himself fighting jmm so he purchased a weight advantage. he could have easily made 144 but was fearful to be on an even playing field. he knows on equal terms he might have been the one sleeping. he would have been on his back looking up at the lights getting caught going backwards though. Floyd weighed 160 for that fight so that he would be able to take the shots he knew a master technician like jmm would land. go ahead and say jmm wants no part of floyds. its a safe thing to say with him being signed to top rank.
