Floyd was doin the poll for Broner to get the Maidana fight on his undercard.

After the rematch was announced a few weeks back (for either April 19 or 26, the lead in card to the Mayweather fight), Maidana said he wouldn't be able to fight until June-July because of his girlfriend is pregnant.

Now, he is available for May 3rd ...

Smart move.

haha this Mayweather fight thing is funny as hell
a "vote" where you can chose between another flat footed South American guy or a freaking C level figher

I bet he will do NO interviews other than with gay sites like fighthype

Who else is he gonna fight?

Also, apparently Mayweather is now gonna fight Maidana, even though Khan won the poll.

I know Khan is shitting bricks if that happens. Homie hasn't fought since April because he's been banking on this fight. He turned down a fight with Devon Alexander (where he most likely beats Devon and wins the IBF title in which Devon lost to Shawn Porter) and if Mayweather doesn't choose him, it'll be the biggest F-U move of all-time. Khan might actually off himself. He's wasted a year waiting on a man, lol.

Khan knows he doesn't deserve it, even though he did beat Maidana a few fights back. Plus, if Khan can get a quality win, he'll be in the running for the next Mayweather fight (not many options left)

who else should he fight? Manny Pacquiao fight aint gonna happen as long as hes with Arum. I dont see any better options other than maybe Danny Garcia if he moves up to 147lbs. I dont think Mayweather is gonna go back up to 154lbs in any of his remaining fights

He'd have better options moving up to 154 though.

The only fights I see him taking at 147 are against Broner (will sell big time, especially if he fights Maidana this May), IBF Champ Shawn Porter and Keith Thurman if he keeps winning.

At 154, he can go against the Lara (only if he builds an audience), WBO Champ Demetrius Andrade and the winner of Molina/Charlo for the IBF belt.

At 154- Lara or call Golovkin's bluff
At 147- Both Maidana and Khan are shit fights, but at least Maidana somewhat earned it and has fought recently. Peterson would be a decent option, better than Khan at least (plus he supposedly whooped Floyd's ass in sparring, so there's a story there).Thurman would be a good choice, but he has no name recognition. A Paulie Malignaggi fight would be incredible in the build up but would be the worst piece of shit fight

154 is the best option, with Lara being the best choice.

Pacquiao just signed an extension with Top Rank ... I guess he doesn't want the Mayweather fight after all.

2 more years of Mayweather, JMM and Bradley fighting each other.

Leaving top rank does not guarantee a Mayweather fight. Remember when all Pacquiao had to do was "TAKE THE TEST" to get the fight done. Then it was no 50/50 and now it's I don't want to work with Arum. Plus May has mentioned the fight can no longer happen after Manny got KTFO.

Also, financially Pacquiao is having some money problems. And if the reports are true, $75M for 2-years is looking pretty good to him. But I would have preferred him stay a free agent.

Pac ain't the only one, even Tim Bradley said a Mayweather fight isn't guaranteed if he left. Also mentioned he might end up retiring with Top Rank. For all the flack that bob gets, his two best fighters are sticking with him.

I'm sayin... These dudes will believe whatever nonsense comes out of Floyd's mouth. How many years did these suckers believe that the only reason Floyd wouldn't fight was because of 'da test'? But now it turns out he was never going to fight anyway because Bob Arum being Manny's promoter somehow makes it impossible?

Truth is, as I've been saying since goddamn 2009 ... Floyd and his people (especially his father/trainer who has never made it a secret) don't like the matchup. And when Floyd doesn't like a matchup, he won't fight a guy, simple as that. Doesn't matter how much money is on the table or how much the public wants it. Both he and Margarito were with Top Rank when Bob offered him a then record purse for the fight. Floyd turned it down. Tony even confronted him face to face about it.

Still no dice. Was Bob to blame then too?

In reality its a stupid reason to refuse a fight and not even entertain a negotiation. Because you don't like the guys' promoter? What's next he doesn't like Pac's favorite color?

Apparently the hold up with Floyd announcing his next opponent is due to a failed double PPV event that didn't get off the ground. Showtime was gonna do a double with Floyd/Khan headlining at the MGM Grand and Broner/Maidana II headlining at the Barclays Center all on the same night.
