I dont know how much about steroids. Would there be any other legit reason for an acne breakout around his chest area?

Good job,way to make sure the Mayweather fight happens ...

Get ready for JMM/Pac V and VII and Pac/Bradley III and IV.


In other related news, Mayweather said he'd pick his opponent for September 13th in 2 weeks.

His list is narrowed down to a Marcos Maidana rematch, current IBF Champ Shawn Porter, WBA Interim Champ and WBA #1 contender Keith Thurman, WBC #1 contender Amir Khan and WBC/WBA Junior Welterweight Champ Danny Garcia.

It certainly won't hurt any of their careers if they lose. Garcia is more ready of the 3.

They all have belts, how is it too early?

Garcia has been champ over 2 years and defended his title(s) 5 times.
Porter won his from Devon Alexander last year.
Thurman has been the interim champ for about a year.

If it's too early for any of them, it's Thurman.

I think he should fight Porter. He hasn't fought a brother since Shane Mosley over 4 years ago.

That way, he can have 3 of the belts at 147.

Mayweather vs. Porter
Maidana vs. Thurman
Broner vs. Matthysse
Guerrero vs. Alexander

I seriously doubt Broner's camp would allow him to get in the ring with Matthysse after they saw what happened against Maidana. Mathysse is arguably the current pound for pound strongest puncher and would just smash through Broner's defense. And AB doesnt have the footwork or quickness to keep him off of him

Because Mayweather is the #1 pound for pound king and the biggest draw in boxing history...Like you said he is his own boss and calls his own shots. Hes gonna get bigger purses than Manny regardless of who he fights. Why should he be the one leaving. Manny on the other end can only do what hes told by his promoters.

Yeah, what benefit does it serve Manny to leave Arum? Of course fans want him fight Floyd, but Pac is a king on his own island with HBO and getting a much bigger piece of the pie than he would under Showtime.

I don't blame him or Bradley for that matter, for staying where they are.

Exactly. Guys at Top Rank are getting paid much better across the board than guys at GBP. Just compare Bradley's payday against Manny with Maidana's 'lottery ticket' for Floyd. Both guys are comparable in terms of name recognition/star power.

And foregoing that type of financial security to possibly fight Floyd and get short changed is a fool's errand. Even Bradley himself said when he signed the TR extension:
"I really don't know if I would get a [Floyd] Mayweather fight. You know, Mayweather picks and chooses whoever the heck he wants to fight. It's not like he sees me, I'm undefeated, and is going to be like, I want Timothy Bradley.' No, he's never called my name. He's never said he wanted to lace up the gloves with me."
Amir Khan signed to Golden Boy AND Al Haymon, has been openly campaigning for over a year to get the Floyd fight, cancelled an Alexander fight to leave himself open for Floyd in the Spring, won a fan poll on Floyd's own website... and still can't get that fight.

If Floyd doesn't want to fight you, he's not going to fight you. Which promoter you're signed to makes no difference (see: Margarito, Antonio).

Floyd can't leave, he's his own entity.

And Floyd is not with Golden Boy, they just promote his fights.

Many doesn't even have to join Golden Boy, just someone other than Arum. He can join DiBella, Main Events, K2, Banner ect as they all work with Golden Boy.
