Roach: Floyd Will Have an Easy Time Beating Canelo
I don't think Floyd will have an easy time with Mayweather. In the comment to BoxingNews.com Roach says that Canelo reminds him of Marquez. I see him as more of a Miguel Cotto type of fighter. Perhaps Cotto was quicker in his prime, but he didn't have Canelo's power. I don't see any way that he can possibly outpoint Mayweather. I'm not ready to make my official prediction yet, but it's hard to bet against Floyd. He's never given any reason to doubt his winning.
- Brent Anderson · Top Commenterits just too bad he avoided the top comp of his time. we will always wonder how he would have done against Oscar in a rematch . Remember an old past his prime Oscar had Floyd in trouble using jab. Floyd turned away MILLIONS and said he wanted to retire rather than give Oscar a rematch. then Floyd turned down fights with Margarito and Cotto when they were in their prime. Then turned down fights with Paul Williams.. Then pacman. he eventually fought Cotto but Cotto was already damaged goods after Pacman destroyed him. also fought a damaged shane Mosley - again after pac beat him. Floyd can avoid being hit but he can't avoid his legacy of ducking challenges. History don't like.
- Dean James · South Suburban CollegeBrent Anderson Floyd Beat mosley before Manny fought him. Arum didnt wanna put cotto in there with floyd after what floyd did to Gatti. Go back and watch the fight Cotto was there scouting. Margarito and Williams there was no money in those two fights. So he went after Baldomir for the belt. We all know why the Pacman fight didnt happen. Isnt it funny now that the same test floyd was asking for 3 years ago, he's now taking? Because he knows he gonna have to take it to fight floyd, So he's taking the test now to see how it will effect him going into a fight. PLEASE GET YOUR FACTS in order before you open your mouth. All you have to do is research. you have the internet at your finger tips.
I'm not so sure that Mayweather has avoided the best competition. In the end when his career is over his resume will not reflect that he avoided anyone. He will clearly be in the Hall of Fame and be considered as one of the greatest of all time. Especially if he doesn't lose and goes out taking fights like the Alvarez fight. Maybe he didn't fight every great fighter of his time, and caught some of the better fighters late in their careers, but he has been unbeatable for over a decade.
Maidana to Broner: We'll Do Our Talking in the Ring
I want to see these two fight, but I don't think this is PPV worthy either. Marcos Maidana is not Paulie Malignaggi. My first thought on this one was that Broner would get knocked out. He runs his mouth like Floyd Mayweather, he idolizes Floyd Mayweather, and when he tries to fight like Mayweather he sucks. If he fights like Floyd and tries that shoulder roll, then he will get knocked out. If he's not a lot better than he was against Paulie, then the fight will end with his back on the floor.
Fury to Spar with Cunningham Ahead of Haye Fight
This will no doubt help Tyson Fury prepare for the toughest fight of his career. David Haye is the favorite going into this fight, but I wouldn't be shocked to see an upset here. Steve Cunningham will simulate Haye very well. This was a wise choice and increases the odds of his pulling that upset.
