Maidana/Lopez is going to be fun.

I think it's going to be Mayweather/Khan. That should be fun as well for the first few rounds.

Froch should stay away from Hopkins and go after a Ward rematch in the UK.

What's up with Andre Dirrell?

Khan has Ramadan in September, unless Mayweather goes with the Dec 7 date Khan is already penciled in for?

It gives the Sep 14th date to Canelo.

Sh*t, I didn't realize. Khan said that Mayweather fight talk is underway, but I guess everyone says that, maybe they are just inquiring right now, or perhaps it's for a later fight date.

I feel like Mayweather is going to save Canelo for Cinco De Mayo next year for some reason...

The rumor now is, Mayweather will fight the Lara/Angula winner next and Canelo, the Smith/Molina winner next. I don't see the Smith/Molina happening as they fight in July and that's only a 2 month break.

The Canelo fight will probably be on the undercard of one of Mayweather/?? and Cotto/Ortiz match in September, probably Cotto.

Khan will probably fight Alexander in Dec and that winner will face Mayweather in May. The winner of Cotto/Ortiz will fight Canelo sometime next year.

Mayweather and Canelo will probably clash in September of next year or Cinco De Mayo 2015.

@ what weight? If he fights Lara/Angulo @ 154 he better not bring that issue up with Canelo's camp again.

Mayweather has never said anything about a weight issue. He hasn't said anything about anything other than he's fighting Sep 14.

Thy are rumors just as mush as a Lara/Angulo match.

Good win by Carl Froch. I love to see him fight Nathan Cleverly at 175.

No way Mayweather fights Lara who will be the winner vs Angulo. Lara is not the type of person Mayweather should be fighting. He could make it a ugly boring fight.

I'm by no means a Mayweather Stan but I can see his point of view.

I mean it is great that we all talk about fighting for legacy but these days people are fighting for that $$$. The Top Dog gets to dictate everything...gloves, size of the ring, weight etc..

When Mayweather fought De La Hoya, he had to go up in weight because De La Hoya was the bigger money maker. When De La Hoya wanted to fight PAcquiao he had to move down to 147 because at that point in time Pacquiao was the money maker.

I would love Mayweather to fight Canelo as I think he would beat him. I also don't have an issue of him demanding the fight take place at 147. Why should he give this young lion a 30 pound advantage? Mayweather will be just fine staying at 147.

dlh was still the top moneymaker during that time while pacquiao was the best fighter. dlh moved 1 division below his usual weight while pac went up 2-3 divisions from his then fighting weight.

DLH was willing to concede a bit to make a great fight, but back then everybody though pac would get killed by dlh

Yep they did think he would get killed. But yes DLH saw it as a way to make lots of money while taking a "easy" fight in his eyes.
