I don't know if Floyd/Cnelo happens. Canelo has a contract with Showtime, Floyd is with HBO. In the past, this situation has prevented fights.

Which fights have been prevented by this?

Jim Lampley needs to go. He is horribly biased.

Maybe he'll follow Larry Merchant out too.

That'd be a hell of a match-up. I would like to see that also.

So yea mayweather is somewhere either kicking himself for giving up that much $ for a potential mayweather/pac fight or he's sighing in relief knowing he'll probably never have to face pacquiao... which one we'll never know.

Pac-Man should be the one worried about the pay day he's gonna miss. Mayweather has been the highest grossing athlete for the past few years.

Khan vs Molina was just a embarrasing mismatch, Khan still looks the same to me, he might get a couple wins than face a power puncher and go for a quick snooze.

Nonitio vs Arce was not much better, to much of a one sided fight in which the loser of the fight had little to no chance of winning.

You ever seen Floyd fight on Showtime? He looks at it as a step down. I'm sure the fight will happen, just not right away at least. Probably after Golden Boy finish their Showtime obligations because it definitely won't be on Showtime.

He's definitely kicking himself, but its more than just the money. He could have had the glory of KO Pacman. Would have went from villain to hero in one night. And shut up every person who ever doubted Floyd. If it happened when they first tried, he would have been the one who stopped the Pacquiao train, and not Bradley/Marquez.

And that's the problem. Floyd makes so much money, that he doesn't want to risk his health and career (his words not mine) for a Pacquiao fight. All because of a drug test. The first time the fight was all systems go, Arum was cornered, he thought Floyd would balk at the weight limit penalties, Floyd didn't. Then Floyd brings up random testing and Arum found his way out.

Marquez fought Manny four times. No random drug testing. And he still beat Manny and was not killed by him in the ring.

His handlers treat him like a sideshow. He shouldn't still be fighting cans.

and get treated like Seth Mitchell did? I think they are doing a great job, last guy he faced was a big step, he had a decent jab and was his same size and more mobile.

Cunningham outboxed Adamek on NBC but Adamek gets the bad decision..I think Steve looks good as a heavyweight though and should be able to land some good fights.

Here's Adamek vs. Cunningham II. Really good fight. I thought Cunningham was robbed. Nevertheless, you should watch it if you haven't.

Khan vs. Molina was totally one sided. The first round was pretty much exactly how the fight went from there on.

Nonito Donaire won Fighter of the Year award. Well deserved. 4 wins in the year including a total domination of Nishioka and a nasty KO of Jorge Arce.

Bob Arum wants Donaire vs. Rigo next year. The winner of this fight vs. Abner Mares.
