In reality, Mayweather knows exactly what he's doing to get any type of publicity to get his PPV buys.

I'm feeling the same way too. Watching Mayweather in all access looks like he invested more of his time hanging out, gambling and spending money than training.

I am not even a huge fan of Floyd, but he's mentally tougher than some of his past opponents.

Tyson also hits harder and faster than Rocky Marciano. Louis is a top 2 heavyweight because of his resume, but in a head to head matchup. I think Mike Tyson would beat him up.

They are really selling the fight. Controversy really creates cash.

Yes indeed, because an editing 30-minute, behind-the-scenes program is an accurate depiction of his life.

People should know by now that Floyd has accepted the role of the villain and there are many people who would like nothing more than to see him get knocked on his arse, or at least lose to someone. When you see him on tv flashing money, showing off cars, houses, and above average looking females (yes), it's nothing more that a ploy to infuriate his critics even more.

It's all calculated to sell tickets and PPVs

floyd trains as hard as anyone else. if there's a reason why him and pac were at the top of the sport it's because of their work ethic

dont know why you are so against that fight. chavez would be the toughest fight for GGG so far. GGG can still fight ward if he beats chavez.

apparently chavez doesnt want to sign an extension with TR

GGG would decimate Chavez, imo. Easy work.

Adrien Broner was just suspended by the WBC for his "(The CAN man) Mexi-CAN" rant from the other night. Let's see if the other bodies follow suit.

Also, today he got sued for that sex tape he put on the web last year.

Damn, homie has been taking L's ever since Marcos put him down.

1.chavez jr hasn't done anything in his career to this date.his best career achievement is knocking down a old gassed out Martinez while losing at least 9 rounds.
2.golovkin is going up 8 pounds to fight a worthless meaning less fight, for what the wbc continental ameriCas paper belt..
3.undercard would be garbage and not worth to be put on ppv.
4.its a total mismatch, jr would be a walking punching bag while GGG wales on him..I would rather watch Vera/GGG on Hbo rather than that fight .
