He'll probably fight the Ghost.

Sergio is too big for him.
So, wait, let me get this straight...

Floyd would love to fight Canelo.
Canelo, like every other boxer, would love to fight Floyd.

So...he'll probably fight Ghost? Oh of course, sorry for being stupid....................??????????

Floyd will NOT fight Canelo. He will NOT fight Pacquiao, Amir Khan, Sergio Martinez, Tim Bradley etc. etc. Now don't get me wrong, Floyd is the best we've seen this generation and perhaps all time, but if the guys too shit scared to even fight guys he'll easily beat just because they pose some sort of threat...how can you respect that? He's fighting Ghost because Robert is a fuking nobody who's only real relevence is beating a juiced up Berto. Even no heart Ortiz beat up Berto. You know that a kid like Canelo would NEVER, EEEEEEEVVVVVEEEEERRRR, pass up an opprtunity to fight May right? Like, never? May's got like 3 years left on his career and every single boxer around wants a shot before he's gone. Canelo wont have even seen the amount of money he'd even receive for a loss before, and why would a 44(or something)-0 kid be worried anyways? The reason May is fighting Ghost is because, even though according to you he'd love the fight so much, they never even offered it to Canelo because, surprise surprise, Mayweather's a puss*y.

Also, Martinez isn't too big for him. Martinez fights at MW, Mayweather fights at WW. Light MW, bang, fight is on. What? Pacquiao can fight at LMW and Mayweather can't?

Exactly my thoughts. He isn't nearly as big as Mike Tyson was, and he's probably dumber. Betting six figures on MMA fights is poor money management. I'll bet that he nets losses of at least in the 1-5 million dollar per year range on gambling alone with bets like that. Toss in a few bad investments, a posse of 100 or so, and the massive decline in boxing interest. Money can go quick.... especially when you go from 50 mil a year to scrapping for promotional money.

Boxing may be in a general decline but Mayweather does the biggest buyrate of the year out of Boxing, MMA, and pro wrestling.

Him and Pacquiao will probably regret never fighting each other though.

So you mention me even in posts that have absolutely nothing to do with me.


You are obviously one of the most pathetic people on this board. You certainly are the most butt hurt.

You are reaching the Roflcopter level... oh wait.


(P.S. it goes RoflCopter level then Charlie Z level and so on and so on. RoflCopter level obviously being the worst)

Lmao

is that the guy who tweeted Chris Leben the other day that "I beat Sean Sherk up on the streets and you cant even win a 15 minute fight with gloves" or something to that extant.

To me that guy is pretty far on the list since he is awesome lol.

haha yeah that's him, he made an account here a little while ago.

Also youtube him cos there's some hilarious videos of him and Rogan and Eddie Bravo were talking about him on the podcast cos he was threatening to kill Bravo or something, then Joe was like.. "we aren't going to talk about this guy anymore, we don't want to give this psycho publicity"

he's like charlieZ but volatile and he can actually fight.

somewhere in my mind Todd Keuneke and Dan Quinn became the same person. Look up Dan Quinn, he's way more interesting, he fought Frank Mir back in the day and now he wants to kill Dana White.
