I think we have found one of Floyd's four remaining fights. Floyd Sr. and Roger have been talking a lot of smack about Broner the past month or so.

Hell, even Adrien and Floyd have been giving out subliminals. Some reporter asked if Adrien would ever fight Floyd. He used to say "No, that is my big brother." Now it's "No, I want him to retire with a perfect record." Floyd critiqued him a whole lot in his last fight.

He then went on to say, "I don't wanna be the one that gives [Floyd] his first loss."

Doesn't surprise me. I've always assumed that the Mayweather camped talked shat about Broner anyway: "He's copying from my son", "That boy is a clown and he'll never be Floyd no matter how hard he tries".

It was only a matter of time.

I've always wondered why boxing decision isn't hold to a higher standard than it is/was. I mean, we got camera and the ability to slow motion a video since before the 80s don't we? Yet we've got one judge scoring one way and the other scoring totally the opposite way and it's totally fine without them having to justify their judging. How is this acceptable? Is it just time constraint?

LOL anyone see the David Sanchez vs. Juan Kantun.....after Sanchez won the fight via stoppage his trainer went to lift him on his shoulders and dropped him on his back lol .

Miguel Berchelt looked impressive in a good win against an over the hill Cristobal Cruz, dropped him with a sweet hook than after Cruz got up he went in for the finish and the ref stepped in and saved Cruz from further punishment.

RIP Tommy Morrison.

Can someone explain how Morrison was able to get 2 sanctioned bouts years after he tested HIV positive?


Isn't an HIV positive test result the complete end of a career in a 'bloodsport'(emphasis on 'blood') like Boxing?

Broner vs Maidana is being moved to December 14th.

Paulie Malginaggi turned down a fight with Zab Judah.

Robert Guerrero turned down a fight with Keith Thurman.

Thurman is most likely fighting Soto-Karass, on the Broner/Maidana card.

I can see Thurman fighting the Alexander/Khan winner.

Naw, it was him. That was back when Broner was fighting at like 130 I think. They then got into it at the Mayweather/Guerrero shoot, as Broner was there talking shit, lol.

This is how I envision the Sugar Ray Robinson and Floyd Mayweather fight. Floyd might win some rounds, but a solid left hook from the GOAT would knock him out cold. SRR was the best 147 and 154 pounder.

Austin Trout was clearly robbed in his last fight with Canelo Alvarez. They don't want Trout vs. Mayweather. I think Trout would give Mayweather a much competitive fight than Alvarez.

What fight were you watching? Trout landed more punches, but Canelo clearly landed the more effective/powerful shots.

what? I disagree. Trout couldn't do anything serious.
Canelo played with him. The commentary was terrible.
Like ****ing Malignaggi who thought Trout won Round 8 after he got knocked down...
