Shit actually, I thought Cinco was in like September and he was just fighting regular in the May event. I'm pretty sure the Sky Sports clueless teletext told me that anyways lol. Man, that just means theres no chance of the Canelo fight because he's wasting that "Mexican pride fight" by fighting a low level fighter like Ghost (and Im a big fan of Ghost actually). I think I'm the only person on the planet wanting to see him fight Khan. Sure, Khan gets KOed by a strong breeze, but May's never faught anyone even half as fast as Khan at WW and Khan COULD overwhelm him, and his last like 20 opponents havent even had an advantage like that.

What's the bet that his next opponent isn't the big slick undefeated Mexican Canelo, or the unfarmiliar but weak chinned speed puncher Amir Khan, or the recently dethroned in and out boxer Pacquiao, or even the super fight of a lifetime with Sergio Martinez....but either JMM whom can't out counter punch Floyd so he will turn to slugging, or Robert Guererro who probably shouldnt even be in actual title contention right now.
:lol:


All of your posts are so funny. LL and Sideways calibre stuff.

Floyd would love to fight Canelo, that's an easy as piss fight for him. Canelo won't get within 100 yards of Floyd or any boxer with an actual pulse.


He'll probably fight the Ghost.

Sergio is too big for him.

canelo would get mashed and probably landed 11 glancing shots the entire fight.

LOL. Sergio is too big. But when he agreed on a weight with JMM a 2 weight class smaller man....he even came in over the limit and paid him off to be ok with it. But that is perfectly fine.

Mayweather is great. Probably is the best WW, I admit that. But his record has been hand picked and he refuses to take fights when he "should". He fights a guy like Cotto not when he was undefeated. But when he was already damaged goods. Mayweather doesn't fight anyone in his way, he fights the fights best for him, always.

I'd rather back a guy like Manny. He was winning that fight and could have set cruise control Instead he jumps right in for a big shot at the very end of a round he had won and got caught. That was one of the better back and forth fights of the year and it didn't even go halfway. Mayweather may defensive box Manny or Aleverez up all night, but I'd rather pay for a Manny/JMM 5th fight over Mayweather vs. bums. Because they give the crowd and watchers a show and aren't afraid to lose.

He fought JMM before he started roiding so it wasn't that good of a win, but Sergio started his career at WW and fights now at 160.

That's about 8 divisions above Floyd's starting weight, and when you consider he didn't do that great against an aged ODH purely on size alone at 154, that would be a stupid fight.

sergio just beat a huge chavez jnr as well so floyd would be a real underdog to pull that off

I love how people are saying 197k is nothing to Floyd. Tell me that when he's filing for bankruptcy 5-10 years after he retires from boxing.

He could always be a promoter, he could always do another pro wrestling match, Floyd ain't done making money yet.
