Pac lost his chance so he'll have to wait next year. I see nothing wrong with that. My only gripe is Floyd isn't fighting twice a year but I can't be too mad if one fight is a HUGE fight. If Floyd had fought and beat Pac in March, I can almost guarantee you people would assume Floyd is ducking Shane.
And you believe Floyd made the earthquake in Hatti so that he could make the fight with Mosely too, right?

It was either gonna be Pac or Shane this year because who else would Mayweather fight and be able to earn a ridiculous amount of money? Don't be silly.

All those would have been great sparring partners for Mayweather

If not for the earthquake, the fight with Mosely could not have happened. You call me silly?

You lay it out like Shane was always his backup plan when it literally took an act of God to make that fight happen.

Yeah because once the earthquake happened, there was no way Mayweather could have said no. That earthquake backed him into a corner, grabbed his hand, and forced him to sign the contract. And it made him sign it before Mosley.

You really don't know how to follow a thought do you? Reread the posts and try and do something other than the typical misdirection play here.

There is no backup plan. Fact is...or at least I believe Floyd fights anyone who is going to help him earn a huge payday. Both Pac and Mosley fit the bill. It's common sense. I don't claim to be a ****ing psychic so let's throw that out the window. But under the condition that Floyd only involves himself in lucrative fights, I can easily say he's likely to fight either of the aforementioned guys.

The Mosley-Berto bout was scheduled to happen in January. My guess is if Floyd couldn't get Pac in the ring he would've fought the winner of Shane-Berto in the Summer. I wouldn't rule out Floyd-Shane even if Mosley had been beaten by Berto since Shane has the bigger name.

What else would you expect from a Pactard!? They weren't around for that fight! Check Rudyard's sig for a couple of retarded Pactard quotes. I just followed suit.

Great sparring partners for FLoyd but now he's on vacation.

Flomos are so desperate that they are still hanging on to issues from the past 6-7 months. They seem not to realize that Floyd is STILL on vacation.

Desperate for what? Lol. Mayweather has been hated since he began opening his mouth as the villain of Boxing. Condemning him isn't anything new. Now if everyone all of a sudden started loving Floyd I'd be so shocked that I'd make a desperate attempt to reverse the process. I don't condone hatred but in this case it sells Boxing tickets so I say keep it coming!

That's fine. That's what he's trying to portray himself as. The modern day ali. Too bad he lacks the balls that Ali had. Ali talks the talk and walks the walk. Floyd talks the talks and goes on vacation/retirement.

Judah, Valero, and alexander that would be top notch sparring. I know Freddie wanted Berto, and Bradley at one time, but both where smart enough to decline because Freddie would be studying there habits for future potential fights. for Marquez floyd flew out Lamont Petersonm, and Judah this guy gets the best sparring out there. I seen Paul Williams sparring partners, and they where all bumbs he was sending them home early, this was when he was fighting quitana the second time, and they where doing a lot of there training in DC.

Is there anybody out there who has better sparring then FLoyd?

(Would Post link but, EB seems to suspend my account for a few days when I do so)
WTF?! I though Mayweather Jr said there was NO NEGOTIATIONS
