Default Re: Mayweather ducking Kostya Tszyu

Here's a simple explanation to the theory as to why Mayweather-Tsyzu didn't happen. If Kostya Tsyzu hadn't lost his Ring Magazine Jr.Welterweight title to the unbeaten Ricky Hatton on June 4, 2005, three weeks before Floyd "Money" Mayweather took the WBC Jr.Welterweight strap from Arturo Gatti on June 25, 2005, then Mayweather would have stayed at 140 after the Gatti fight and fought Tsyzu and he would've beaten him the same way he beat Gatti, only Tsyzu would've made it to the 10th round before Floyd floors and finishes him.

yeah that's pretty much the point I was trying to get at in my OP. When Floyd moved up to 140, Tszyu went and fought a fight he already had postponed after his injury that sidelined him. Then he immediately fought a mandatory in which he lost and retired.

And you have bought up all these quotes of him wanting to fight Tszyu.

Yes Floyd does do alot of talking we have seen that. But it doesnt mean ****.

I can say these things for sure about that fight.
Showtime and HBO between those years of Tszyu owning 140 never and I mean never got together for fights.
So people saying Tszyu had the decision to make this and that I can inform you as I know people within the Tszyu Camp that ARUM and Mayweather in those years never once not once approached the Tszyu camp for this fight.

Plus I have it on very good authority that the poster

SCAR.

Has a interview that took place between Roger Mayweather and Floyd Mayweather in 2004 some time and they were asked if they would ever fight Tszyu.
Floyd answered with this qoute as Ive seen this footage but its rare to find.

His answer went
He would consider fighting Tszyu when he was Old like Roger was when he fought and beat Roger when he was young.

Only problem about this comment at the time for fans that know is.

Tszyu was 35 Years Old at the time of this comment (Which we know Floyd is not the smartest tool in the Shed) But when Tszyu fought Roger Roger was 34 years Old.

So it came across as a sort of we will wait till he is Old but hang on Tszyu is Old its just you seen him put such a hurt on Judah and Mitchell that you might actually not like the Power you feel from his Right Hand.

Now I have No Link to show this Interview but I know it took place as I have watched it as like I said the poster SCAR posted to shut Mayweather fans up and it did just that.

Plus I wanted to add when did you ever see Tszyu say Oh NO we aint fighting there or im not fighting him.

I think his 13 World Title fights on Foreign soil pretty much make that statement and the fact he travelled to Hatton home town at the very end of his career.

He would never say NO to that fight he just wouldnt. **** he even said Yes to Gonzalez fight in Florida and Chavez fight in Phoenix close to the Mexican border.

Plus also people saying he has NO pulling power I can tell you in his last ever fight in Australia they Sold 34,000 tickets at the Telstra Dome for a fight with Lieja. So he could have demanded everyone come to him with those kind of Gate numbers but Oh NO he went to there backyards.

Yet some here still show him No Respect.
An old post, but worth bumping.

Nah, he's already stated several times that he didn't completely control who he fought, at the time. A better case can probably be made for Floyd ducking Harris or Margarito than anyone else.
