Going after smaller guys like floyd/canelo/cotto is weaksauce (and the only person i think he can beat in that group is cotto tbh, and maybe not even) and everyone knows youre just doing it for the payday. Also i didnt forget you were accused of removing stuffing from your gloves. Fight ward first

    Ward doesn't want the fight right now, nobody else at his weight wants to fight. He wants to beat names and nobody is stepping up. How is it his fault?

    Floyd is, or should I say was, a superb technical boxer. Incredible body positioning, footwork, a great jab, punching precision. However he handpicked his opponents, rather than fighting the best competition when they were in their prime. He also abused the clinch (though he isn't the only boxer to do that) in a way not intended in the sport of boxing.

    I think he is respected but people have a tough time ranking him as one of the all time greats because of those qualities. The best fought the best of their time. The general public also generally despise fighters who always go for points rather than finishing their opponents.

    You're right, he's just fighting for less money because he wants to wallow in boxing and never get a huge payday.

    You're an idiot if you think he doesn't want a payday at this point and he's doing it any way possible.

    Ain't nobody trying to pay the WBO man.. Out of all the fucked up sanctioning bodies and shady stuff in boxing, the WBO is cream of the crop

    Man thats insane. Im just blown away. Hes supposed to make 30 million this fight. Whats 300k for glory? Especially if he wins.... But actually i get it. Even if he wins, then hes gonna fight triple G. He might fight triple G anyways who will have the title regardless.... Am i crazy in thinking this way?

    No, GGG gave the offer when Ward came back. Ward's team said they wanted a warm up fight first. Ward's team is ultimately who signs. I'm sure Ward does want the fight and so does Golovkin, but they aren't signing the papers until their camps come to a deal with the promoter.

    GGG's camp is not in power here. Ward's camp has more offers.

    I am a huge Ward fan and I'm neutral on GGG.

    Because I'm gonna be on the road I can't guarantee I'll say this so:

    The salt gonna be incredibly real if Canelo wins. Still mad he lost to Trout. Some random Las Cruces nigga? Only reason I'm scared for this fight.

    I'm looking forward to Canelo Cotto this weekend, but having a hard time finding a bar around here that's showing it. Most sports bars apparently don't want to pony up for ppv.

    Yea, it's alot more expensive to show boxing than it is ufc. Hooters usually has the fights though, I would check there

    LMFAO i dont really care about my "puerto rican" heritage i hate the way most PRs act anyways.

    I loved cotto before margarito ruined him.

    Canelo is an exciting young boxer and ive enjoyed watching his career bloom

    Even Hooters here isn't showing it. :( I called about 15 places around Nashville and no one seems to be showing it, so I think a few buddies and I are gonna get some food and watch some classic matches online instead. Either way, a fight will be watched lol

    This is about an even matchup is there is. I'm hoping Cotto's jab proves to be too much.

    Cotto's jab = key to victory if he wins. Canelo's key to victory is taunting Cotto into trading hooks in the pocket and moving cotto towards the ropes. Should be interesting to see if Cotto does some switching to Southpaw that he so often does due to his power hand being in his left. If Cotto gets baited into a brawl and stands and trades in the pocket he's going to lose even though he does hit VERY hard, Canelo gonna be walking around WAY heavier come fight night.

    I got Canelo winning, my brain and eyes tells me he's too young and good for Cotto to outbox for 7+ rounds

    ...But there's something inside me that wants to see the experienced and savvy Cotto win. I got nothing but the utmost respect for Cotto.

    Either way its going to be a hell of a fight.
