Why is ROACH so obsessed and jealous of Mayweather?

Floyd is more of a businessman than a warrior. His brand (himself) would not be nearly as valuable with a loss on his record so he does everything he can to tilt the scales in his favor to stay undefeated. I hear you Roach, but what can we do? He is really not worth worrying about. Just don't buy his fights and focus on the fights and fighters that you really want to see. There is a lot more to boxing than Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Don't cry, bro.
He had no choice but to fight Mosley . I dont give him credit for taking the fight with Shane . Around that time Berto/Mosley was cancelled , so he was forced to fight Shane , he was backed up into a corner . Either sign for a fight or let the media ripped him apart for a clear duck . Floyd never had any intentions to fight Sugar . The man does not like risky fights .

No one from 147 down has a chance of beating Mayweather. People so desperately want him to lose, they want him to fight middleweights and **** lol.

You are correct . Despite the result , it doesnt change the fact Floyd did everything he could to prevent a fight with Shane . Saying he has "5 losses" and " i wish nothing but the best for Mosley and his career" . He clearly showed he didnt have no desire to fight Sugar .

The mother ****er waits for the right opportunity.

When 147 was stacked, he retired like a ***** and lost HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF REVENUE.

That's a coward ass ***** move.

Did he fight Pacquaio after saying he would, No.

Did he fight Martinez after saying he would, No.

Did he fight Margarito after saying he would, No.

He won't fight Canelo either.

This mother ****er is a liar and fraud.

Why you wanna throw your money away? It's bull****.

He has not hidden the fact he fights for money nothing else I dont get folks a fighter looks out for himself and hes scared these guys bleed for the fans Im all for the best picking money fights.Mayweather went for years chasing the big names and no one wanted to fight him its a fact.With hard work and dedication he became #1 in all aspects of boxing,now who here is NOT going to look at this fight?

Actually Floyd did everything he could to get shane in the ring earlier in career before Floyd became star but Shane wanted nothing to do with Floyd. He didn't suddenly become interested in a fight until Mayweaher became the PPV king. How long have you been followng boxing kid??

Cotto had a great chance to win and forced Mayweather to fight his best.

Donaire is going to fight Rigo, people will be split.

THE BEST ARE FIGHTING COMPETITIVE FIGHTS. FIGHTS THAT PEOPLE THINK THE OTHER GUY WILL WIN.

****, HOPKINS has been doing this for YEARS at the age of 50!!!

Yet, Floyd's ***** ass who talks all that ****, and is younger than Martinez is taking on the easiest fights that there are.

NOBODY in their right mind thought Marquez had a chance.

Mosley was given a puncher's chance, probably the best fight Mayweather has taken in years. He actually fought someone fans thought was acceptable.

Then his ***** ass fights Ortiz? WTF?


The he fights a used up, washed up, no stamina in the late rounds Cotto who can't beat any real 154 lb fighters, but ran to the weightclass so he could cherry pick small guys coming up.

And now GUERRERO?

YOU GOT TO BE ****IN kiddin me. DId anyone see Guerrero vs Aydin? That was a ****in terrible fight. Man, I almost had to turn the channel.

AYDIN is a primative, skilless fighter and gave Guerrero almost all he could handle.

Why does this ***** get away with this ****?

FIGHT CANELO, YOU *****.

You avoid Pacquaio and now roid Marquez knocked him out. You avoid Margarito and left the sport for 2 years and lost HUNDREDS of millions of dollars of revenue.

And now you're avoiding other challenges like the ***** you are.

STOP TALKIN THAT ****, and FIGHT SOMEONE that has a chance for once.

STop being scared.

That is all.

I thought there was talk of a potential fight with Canelo?

The 154v lbDLH, mayweather fought was better than anyone else at 147.

Pacquaio turned down 40million to keep on making 6 to 8 million.

Martinez is the MW champ.

He agreed to fight Maragrito, but Arum also wanted him to fight sign and extension and fight cotto and hatton for chump change. Who wanted to see him fight a cheating, slow, plodding, overrated, disgraced, non HOF human pinata like Marg anyway? That does nothing for his legacy.

Mayweather has consistently proven he is only willing to fight guys that are past their prime or too green to give him a real challenge. I think the riskiest fight he took since he fought Castillo was Cotto and I actually gained a little respect for him with that performance... but any of you guys who think he's gonna fight a big junior middleweight like Canelo or even Martinez are completely delusional. The only guys I see him fighting are Guerrero and maybe Bradley .... possibly Pacquiao now that he's been KTFO and his stock has fallen so he'll have to take short money to fight Floyd and he's damaged goods
