Completely agree.

Pacquiao and Martinez wins will do wonders for Floyd's legacy. It will throw him very high up in the ATG rankings.

Bradley and Canelo are just easy UD wins for him. Having these two on his resume is no better than having one solid victory over Miguel Cotto, so it's pointless.

Floyd doesn't really want to find Martinez because he prefers Martinez fighting his own fighter Andre Dirrell. Whether you like to call it ducking or getting a payday as a promoter, it's up to you.

It's such a shame that Floyd is no longer in his prime. Compare the Cotto and even the Ortiz fight to the Corrales fight for example. There's a difference in speed, reflexes, athletic ability etc. thus Floud has less depth in his game than he did before.

I would like to see Cotto vs Martinez. If Martinez wins by being able to be more effective than Cotto was against Mayweather at certain skills, we know he has a great chance against Mayweather.

Is Dirrell signed to Mayweather? Thought he was with 50 cent

Even if Ricky Hatton come back now and beat him TKO4 Floyd is still an ATG and nothing that happens from now will change that. He may as well have 1 last fight and retire with honour.

Who knows but one thing forsure is that PAC is good enough scared the shit out if Floyd. Everytime they do an interview on Floyd and when they asked him about PAC, it's time for the Ali scenario.

Alvarez will "De La Hoya Vs. Mayweather" Floyd...
Just like Oscar passed the torch, Money passes it to the new King.
(Either way.. Mayweather has lost his "May 5th" date to the new owner)

Exit: Money
Enter: Dinero

Floyd should've fought with Pacquiao in 2009, period . Right now its a pointless fight.

The only 2 good fights left for Floyd imo are : Martinez at 154 and maybe Garcia at ww !

50 and Mayweather parted ways.... as far as I know, 50 Cent is promoting Dirrell, Gamboa and I think Billy Dib. Mayweather apparently did not put up his portion of the money to get the promotional company started.

I hope you're not insinuating that, should Floyd beat Manny, he waited until Manny was "shot?" Floyd's nearly three years older than Manny. Should the fight happen (which I don't think it will) and should Floyd win, he gets full credit. Floyd is more *shot* than Manny, as he is years older.

In a sense though, nobody can be more shot than Manny. I mean, he's shootin' up them roids alllllllllllllll day
No, I wasn't insinuating Pac. I just said the fact that Roger at least knew that some fighter can defeat Floyd and that obviously did not include Pac since he said as he had been saying that Floyd would whoop his (Pac's) ass. To make it simple, I meant that Floyd would never fight anyone he thought capable of beating him because he wanted to preserve his undefeated record.

Canelo needs to fight an actual test before getting in there with the best fighter in the world. If your idol is Canelo i'm amazed you want him fed to Floyd already. He's nowhere near ready
