    Default Not The Same Old excuse Again........

    Boxing News: Mayweather Jr. Defends Choice of De La Hoya Over Cotto

    This article tells you all you need to know about floyd. I know the floyd lovers are gonna try to cover his ass again but this tells you all you need to know about the guys willingness to take the meaningful fights and his lack of respect for fighters of the past.

    How can he compare himself to a guy like Ray Robinson saying things like "Well he wasn't undefeated" but the guy wasn't ducking the challenging fighters in their primes so he doesn't even stack up against guys like SRR.

    His PPV numbers were not good until he fought DLH and Hatton so I'm not sure what he and ellerbe are talking about either. That's the way they try to fool the fans by fighting the same guys and making it seem like it's floyd that's the draw and the money guy.

    These guys are delusional for real.

    He is becoming more and more of a complete tool. Check out this quote:

    “No disrespect to Sugar Ray Robinson,” Mayweather told Rotella. "But was he undefeated? Did he win six titles in five weight classes? I’ll be honest, boxing comes so easy to me I don’t even think about it. I’m here to entertain. . . . Work is work. I’m gonna make a lot of money, but this is also a learning stage of my life. I’m learning different ways to promote. Other fighters have to fight. I don’t have to fight. I already went through that stage when I fought 90 fights for free [amateur ranks]. I already proved it to myself. Once you reach pound for pound, you already proved everything.”

    What Ellerbe said makes perfect sense (which is usually rare)...but then Floyd opened his mouth and fucked it up. I hate when he compares himself to Sugar Ray Robinson and this stuff about 5 different weight classes. Didn't anyone tell him that some of those weight classes he won titles at didn't exist back in the day?
    I can understand completely what they're saying about the Cotto fight not making 'business sense' and it being very high risk for little reward but I just wish he'd say fuck the money for one last fight and just silence all his critics by taking out Cotto.

    I acctually think mayweather will fight him imo, all the hype is building and building and Cotto`s name is building aswell, but for all we know Cotto could get beat. I would put money on him fighting the winner eventually.
    What if he did fight beat Cotto though then what lol ?

    If he did beat Cotto then he can ride off into the sunset having answered the BIG question. Until then...........

    Floyd will fight Cotto when Cotto becomes as big a star as he can be, after the Margarito fight and probably a couple more. If Cotto keeps winning then Floyd-Cotto becomes a far bigger commercial proposition in a year or so than it is now. Floyd only wants fights that are massive earners for him so that's why he's saying the things he's saying about DLH and why he'll do the same for a Hatton rematch. After those two massive money fights Floyd will fight and beat Cotto.

    Here's a good article about him I just bumped into :

    I really hope nobody buys Mayweather-De la Hoya II, but I'm sure most of the idiotic general public will

    I wish someone would ask Floyd, When has he carried a PPV card?

    Tell me what question Mayweather hasn't already answered. Because all the "can he" "will he's" that people have used against him he has already proven he can and will. Its the fans that refuse to accept it.

    But feel free to tell me what question Mayweather hasn't already answered.

    Before PBF fought and beat DLH his haters said if he beat oscar he'd porven himself.

    Then they said if he beat Hatton he'd have proven himself.

    Now its Cotto.

    If he beats Cotto they will say he hasnt proved himself til he wins a 160 title or something.

    I think most knew that once Judah fell to Cotto that that was the fight to be made and I would think the majority of fans would have rather seen Cotto-Mayweather then Hatton - Mayweather. Not that Hatton - Mayweather was a bad fight. But he has to fight Cotto imo it would be a fight unlike any he's ever had where he could completely silence every one of his critics. If he were to win it would be his best win imo. That's why so many want this fight because it would be another truly great fighter in his prime, can't get better then that.

    Until Mayweather wins and then The excuses are gonna come and then people are gonna talk about what Mayweather didn't do, then its gonna turn into he ducked and dodged margarito and then people are gonna find another opponent for him to fight.

    Oscar was supposed to silence the critics, Hatton was supposed to silence the critics. It didn't. People just want Mayweather to lose so they can reach their pleasuring point and scream "HAH SEE HE'S OVERRATED!!! A SO-AND-SO COMPARE YOURSELF TO ROBINSON HAH YOU GOT YOUR ASS BEAT!"

    Nobody will be happy with Mayweather till he loses.

    There is always going to be a fighter out there who some believe would beat Floyd. After Cotto, there will be somebody else.

    For people criticizing the re-match with ODLH, you have to bare in mind the first fight was a SD and Floyd is ranked 1st at 147 with Oscar 1st at 154. I don't see the problem.

    And Floyd is right, he doesn't even need to fight Cotto. He's pretty much built his legacy already. He has a lot of very good wins on his resume. Sure Cotto would be a great addition.....but i've already made my mind up about him. He's proved all he can ever prove to me. I see no way how Cotto could ever beat him.....or any other fighter today to be honest.
