Ya bcs it's not likely the biggest fight in MMA history (by far) hasn't been made for past year or anything either.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

It's really amazing how biased some people are. Apparently a few months ago Manny was ridiculous for not agreeing to blood testing up to 14 days before the fight (I mainly agree with this btw), and that was the only reason the fight wasn't happy so it was all his fault, yet when he apparently agrees to it, there are new goalposts and again he is to blame.

Seriously, here are Floyd's fights since 2002.

Victoriano Sosa

Phillip N'dou

DeMarcus Corley

Henry Bruseles

Arturo Gatti

Sharmba Mitchell (coming off a brutal 3 rd 4 kd beating v Tsyzu AND stepping up a weightclass!)

Zab Judah (coming off a loss)

Baldomir

DLH

Ricky Hatton (forced to go up a weightclass)

JMM (36 yr old, going up TWO weightclasses and then Floyd came in over the limit)

Mosley (38 yr old)

Seriously, how is that a good legacy? That's damn near EIGHT years of fighting where the only respectable fights are Mosley and DLH who were still somewhat of a threat even if on the decline and Hatton who was forced to move up a weight class. The other nine matchups he had varied from 'joke' to 'massive joke'. His standard of competition has been very very lacking for a long time now.

No he doesn't...and that's the issue. No one knows what's going on. We get plenty of speeches about who said what and when but it's all done behind closed doors so we're left trusting people with no credibility.


Boxing is like college football on crack in terms of scheduling. People just call people up and set up fights. Sure there are sanctioning bodies but no one cares about them. UFC fans should be glad that have massive division in front of them and not behind.

Translation of the last page of posts: Floyd's a big pussy. Undefeated is a troll.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

lol @ Undefeated pulling up a bunch of self-opinion-serving articles to back his bias which easily anyone could find 2x as many disputing or with differing view points, and easily. Then waves the "I know more then you all" flag. Kudos troll meister.

p.s. Floyd's a big pussy.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

I think Floyd's next move will be to fight Tim Bradley at 147. I'm sure he scouted the Abregu fight. j/k

Floyd's not brain smart, but he's fight smart. He knows how to "choose" fights where the odds are in his favour. PartyGirl's list of fights show that. I don't think he's afraid of Pac. He's preserving his "Money" nickname. I think he's going to try to fit in as many easy fights as he can before Pac. Probably one more... Unfortunately, he may drag his feet for too long. Pac's almost done with boxing. I'm pretty sure his priorities are in politics. Maybe only 1 or 2 fights left for him.

Boxing moves on whether this fight gets made or not.

Dana white gets at Floyd for being a punk *****.

In my opinion he's hurting his fans and the sport by acting like this. It's just unbelievable he has nothing to say. How can his fans continue to defend this behavior? Pac is who he should be fighting, let's not get confused here. It's mayweather who is CLEARLY turning down this fight. I started watching boxing because of the hopes this fight would happen, and I know alot of other people who did as well.

I assume you're talking about Fedor/Lesnar, but you also have Anderson Silva/GSP that won't get made because Dana White doesn't want to damage one of his champions. And by champions I mean he doesn't want to risk damaging Georges St-Pierre.

There's not the same kind of public clamor for GSP/Silva as there is for Pac/Mayweather or Fedor/Brock.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

i wish Linares would step forward to meet Rocky and then open up on him rather than countering him.

Jim Watt reading this thread?

Rocky should stop trying to block the punches with his face.

Rocky Juarez has King Kong sized balls, lol.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

Guererro fighting a smart fight using his range well, and landing good when the opportunities arise. Not exciting, but effectively avoiding close range danger to dominate.

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

ya Guerrero went into cruise control from the 3rd on when I think he could have taken the aggressive finishing route and got Casa out of there by 5 or so. Bit of a snooze fest for sure. Meh, even after that KD in the 10th Casamayor didn't even try to finish it.
