in the sport of boxing, 50% is won by intimidation i.e talk trash. the other half is won in the ring

Because most of these posters are morons, there are only a few times that I can actually say a fighter was ducked. Like Ricky Hatton making all stupid excuses to duck Junior Witter shamelessly/blatantly because he was scared to lose, Or like GBP/Top rank using their powers to avoid a fighter that they think can derail their fighters but the word gets thrown around too quickly these days.

When Margarito asked Floyd for a fight, Floyd was going to make his biggest pay day.
My point was that there are names on the list that dispute the claim that Floyd takes the best pay day since its a business. I named a few examples in a previous thread.
Floyd likes to fight opponents when they are not ready for one reason or another:
- Cotto: Arum was interviewed and said that Cotto may be the man to beat Floyd BUT NOT NOW since he was a young guy that was still developing. Arum said probably in a year perhaps a year and a half. By then, Floyd had little interest in fighting the top 147lb and went on a long vacation.
- Mosley: There were several opportunities for that fight. When Floyd fought Baldomir, he had a chance to fight Margarito in November or Mosley in December/January/February timeframe. Floyd told Mosley NO!!! There is an interview on that.
Also, Mosley fought Cotto when Floyd decided to fight a career 140lb again but at 147 then decided to retire for some strange reason! Why take on a 140lb when there were so many legit 147lb fighters including Cotto, Mosley, Margarito,....?
- Marquez: Floyd this time fought a guy that had recently fought 130-135lb fights ..... fight was at 146lb. Again, why when there were so many legit WWs?
- Williams: Asked to take on Floyd. Floyd never ever tried to take him on.
- Martinez: Was going to come down in weight for Floyd. Floyd said, fight Ward at 168 .... lol!
Floyd fans say its about money but then when Floyd can make big money, its another excuse. The bottom line is that Floyd says he is his own boss, Everyone wants to fight him .... unfortunately, Floyd prefers to fight them when there still developing or when they are old and out of prime.
Funny thing is the next time there is a thread that discusses legacy, Floyd fans will change their tune! LOL!

Choosing not to fight is essientially the same as ducking. And when you are not fighting and have a lot of time on your hands like Floyd you can scan the scene and cherry pick, which is what Floyd is all about. He liked that hatton had hard time at WW and nearly lost to Collazo.

they're naive, and disappointed about fights they want to see not materializing.
looking through this thread, i'll also add that many of them are here to "hate" certain fighters, and suck the c#cks of the ones with whom the identify. they really don't care about the actual boxing, or the fighters. they're here for selfish purposes.
