Default Re: Floyd Sr: Little Floyd would be a beast at 140

Floyd couldn't make weight against JMM was prolly due to the long laid off but suppose he did lose 15lbs of muscle then 140 is easy to achieve for him. There are some big names coming up at 140 but i don't see any of them troubling Floyd though.

this is pbf's way of trying to tell unsuspecting people that he doenst want to fight right now.
I don't feel like explaining it, but you can lose 15 pounds in two months. You can lose 15 pounds in a matter of weeks actually.

Amm.. His a bandwagon fan more than a filipino.. I mean, alot of other nationalities make stupid comments and for you to post it in a forum tells us what kind of child you really are.

On a side note: i don't entirely agree with the article itself. Best super bantamweight of all time, has caballero, nishioka, and bungu.. I didn't think this division, with all of its history, sucked big time

Great picks for the top 3 btw

These are casual boxing fans, who cares what race they are. Why are you bringing it up in your title?
My thoughts exactly

i disagree.

He's fought ATG that were past it like Mosley and DeLaHoya
And many HOF's who were prime like Castillo Coralles Hatton Cotto.

But no prime ATG's

Still a great resume.

Just missing the huge win

sure, if you wanted to lose 15 pounds you most certainly could. i work out four days a week with weights and three days a week cardio and i am in excellent physical shape. if i were to be incarcerated for two months(floyds tenure) i can guarantee you that i would do push-ups, pull-ups and maintain my weight and strength and i am sure that floyd did the same.

tyson went to prison for three years and fought five months after his realese at three pounds over his normal righting weight of 217.

it doesnt appear to me that tyson had a problem with weight and strength after three years in the joint let alone a measely two months.

why?

seriously, you believe this 800 calorie bull****?

or do you believe 50cent recently leaving floyd because he wouldnt fight pac?

hard to participate on the esb forums as the stupidity is often too unbearable.

I dont think so!
Pacquiao is wired to dominate fighters who rely heavily on the left hand.

Pacquiao being southpaw focuses on taking away a conventional fighters left jab and hook. If you cant throw and land the right hand with force and consistency, you become easy pickings for a physical southpaw dynamo like Pacquiao, just see the MAB, DLH, Hatton, and Cotto fights.

I said on this very board weeks before the DLH fight that if Pacquiao's weight on fightnight was within 8 lbs of DLH's, he'd destroy DLH worst than MAB!

MAB at his best would have to catch Pacquiao at his worst, and even that might not be enough!

My top 5 are:


Gomez
Morales
Barrera
Zaragoza
vazquez sr


almost on par with d ring. wtf?



In regards to Pacquiao, his brief reign in the 122 IBF belt was satisfactory and could have unified and dominated the weight class, but he opted to fight above 122 because his body is growing that he no longer wanted to drain more weight but instead move up to a comfortable weight at 126 and get some bigger fish to fry. hello marco antonio barrera.

Meh, 140 is too weak right now, I can see Floyd beating Garcia and taking those belts as an easy win.

don't let Puga_no_nuts implant that lie into your head too.

Floyd DIDN"T LOSE 15 POUNDS OF ALL MUSCLE. He claimed the main cause was dehydration
