Default With all the money Floyd Jr. makes..

One would think he can afford to pay off his opponents and let him keep on winning.
So he can keep getting paid off from the haters that want to see him lose.

The Canelo-perro scam left me wondering.

Oh.. and before people start with their butthurt...
I respect Floyd skills in the ring.
The thread is not to diminish Floyd great boxing skills, more like hearing your thoughts on what i first mentioned.

I once had in mind that that Mosley fight was fixed..he nails Floyd and it was as if he wasnt supposed to do that and threw **** the rest of the fight..but then I saw Mosley against PAC and realized no its just Mosley being washed up

To consider this you must first consider how much money it would take to get said opponent to throw a fight with floyd, when you consider how much the first guy to beat floyd stands to make

If you beat floyd
- you dethroned the p4p an ppv king, your ranking skyrockets up (possibly to number 1, if you are a too 5 or 10 fighter)

-you now dictate terms and guarantee yourself a big purse for a rematch

-just as floyd is a household name, so will be the first guy to beat him

-everyone and anyone wants to fight you, sign you or interview you ($thats alot of money$)


So you tell me why anyone would
Take a bribe? How much would u need to take a fall and lose that?

Believe me, i've thought about it, but people wouldnt pay as much money to see the new king on the throne as they pay to see Floyd fall.
Everyone wants to keep on seeing Floyd winning. At least all the companies making money off him. Showtime and the MGM.

theres pretty good reasoning for both sides.but i see him being leagues above everyone so he would never have to. plus his ego is too damn big and he has too much pride to do that ****. just my opinion. plus the dude that beat him would end up being more popular and making more money for beating him than he would pay them to lose.

floyd will do anything to keep winning, doesn't matter if it's steroids, fixing fights, ducking, etc. if he catches you talking smack about him he will have his crew tune you up as well.

so you are one of those people that thinks floyd cherry picks and has nothing but soft touches yet at the same time you think he pays off those same cherry picks and soft touches?? why exactly would he do that if they are cherry picks that have no chance in hell to beat him? You cant have it both ways man. unless of course youve flown under the radar and I havent noticed that youre a f*ckin troll until right now...

Sometimes i believe, the fighters just give up.

It's not as if Floyd pays them to give up.

They're just like:

Oh well i'm getting paid 2 million, may as well make it a quick fight, go home healthy and enjoy my money.


Like you could see freaking Canelo didnt even bother to fight from the 5th round onwards.
