Why did he do like he does and TALK MAD SHIT all the way til the buzzer rang??

How come on FNF about a month later in an interview with Max kellerman when asked about it, Floyd said, "I dont want to talk about Spadafora' twice, until Kellerman changed the subject???

IF, IF?? It was just a matter of being out of shape?? How come he took over 3 years and a rehab to make an offer??

Cuz he got his ass beat, THAT'S WHY!!!!

What I want to know is why Floyd never unified in ANY division he's fought in. I don't know if he ducked Spad, or if Spad ducked Floyd or if BOTH guys didn't really give a shit about the other. Either way, they should have fought, and whether you guys like it or not, Floyd had the promoter who could make it happen.

Why are people saying Floyd was out of shape? Why would you think or say something like that? Whose ass did you rip that from?

How can anyone say PBF had any less energy than Spadafora leading up to that sparring session? Where does that come from? Being out of shape means nothing the moment you agree to spar. At that point you're doing what you're supposed to be doing. There would be no excuse for being outta shape. Its all on you so any sort of excuse should mean dick by that point. Both men threw away any sort of bullshit excuse the moment they crossed the ropes.

I don't know who Floyd was fighting around the time Spaddy fought Dorin but.. Dorin won that fight

Out of shape was the official excuse played by the PBF camp. Even though facts are facts and if he was so out of shape? Then they were quite dumb about the situation. I find that very hard to believe, given the history and experience in that boxing family.

After Castillo? PBf fought Sosa(after Spat beat him) and N'dou.

Spat tried to get both belts(BF, BA) against Dorin, to FORCE PBF into the ring . It's perfectly understandable that many felt Spat lost that fight. There are no excuses, but Spat's problems began before Dorin, surfaced there, and boiled over afterwards. The guy has paid a heavy price for his wrong's and the only way to FIX WRONG?? IS DO RIGHT!!! He's getting released shortly after yet again having problems which THIS TIME WAS UNFOUNDED and simple manipulation by the woman involved, to drag him down AGAIN!! Hopefully? he gets out, stay's right, and what happens remains to be seen. He undoubtedly has work to do and time will tell, IF HE AGAIN BECOMES RELEVANT.

The question, my friend, IS WOULD PBF GET IN THE RING?? The reality is WHY didnt he when the fight was relevant against what the MAJORITY believe to be an inferior fighter????

Now, Spats just getting out AGAIN and will have to get back, but if he does?? Yes, I'll take SPat over PBF. You havent seen the whole thing and Floyd was younger and QUICKER, THEN, not now. If anything Floyd's performances and work rate have SLOWED

It's possible that Spat has also but in 6-12 months and a fight or two will go a long way towards finding out. ONLY TIME WILL TELL FROM HERE!!!!

It is not really ducking someone if they are mediocre.

Floyd has trouble with southpaws, especially an evasive, slick one like Paul. Would I neccessarily pick Paul to win with a 100% in-shape Floyd? Not certainly, but he would definitely not be outclassed and would give him problems.
floyd vs a drug addicted alcoholic yeah you definitely know what your talking about you and c-money fail to realize paul has beaten not one elite fighter at his weight why is that

lets break it down. Floyd was champ and Dorin and Spaddy fought to unify and then fight Mayweather. They fought, Spaddy got a hometown draw with neither looking good, and Floyd rightfully just went up to 140 and fought Corley...

**** no. PBF would have won all rounds against Pauile and probaly stopped him late. Remember Paulie is the same guy who was dropped twice in one round by Victoriano Sosa a guy PBF dominated.

I agree with this. The same Dorin who was stopped in the first round by Gatti. Yeah this guy was a serious threat to PBF...please. Paulie was no more a serious threat to PBF at 135 than Margo is to PBF at 147. Paulie is a tool used by PBF haters to try and discredit him.

he was going to against the winner of Spaddy-Dorin....the whole commentary of the fight was about which one will face Mayweather. Spaddy got the hometown draw, they both looked terrible, and he went up in weight instead---the much better choice.

Who gives a **** if he was out of shape or in the best shape of his career. The bottom line here is that it was just SPARRING, it has no bearing to how an actual boxing match would play out and anyone who thinks it does has never spent time in a boxing gym. For example back when I was a an amateur I sparred a friend of mine who I would always get the best of in sparring but I knew if we ever fought in a real boxing match I would get my ass kicked. Sparring stories are like fishing stories you have to take both with a grain of salt.
