floyd claimed he lost 15 pounds in jail. then he mentioned he is not focused on fighting. this was after 50, his good pal, ants to arrange the fight sometime in december or early next year. 50 said, floyd needs more time.

Maybe he isn't focused on fighting? I predicted when he was sentenced he'd take a while before getting back in the ring, or probably even retire. Neither would surprise me since the Pac fight is worthless at this point.

Arrow If MAYWEATHER-PACQUIAO Happens, Then...

It was GBP that was the problem all along. Not Arum.

so it's ok for floyd not to fight pacquiao since it's worthless now but fighting ortiz was full of worth? then why not make pacquiao as a tune-up for martinez since floyd just got out of jail? they were even giving floyd enough time until early of next year.

floyd should just announce his retirement then and not to take long vacations as always when there are perceived threats.

I highly doubt he fights Martinez- It's going to most likely be Canelo then maybe a Cotto rematch to unify 154 after Cotto gets by Trout (if he does)

well floyd said he is ok with a martinez fight if he would go down to 150. martinez might grab this chance for the money. i have no problem with a cotto fight but cotto is just too past it now and is slow as **** at 154. canelo, that's nice and floyd should try to get him now otherwise, his old tactic of making his opponent old and washed-up first would backfire against canelo.

Cotto isn't that slow at 154 IMO he was piecing Margo up with nice 3 and 4 punch combos. He looked slow against Floyd because that's the effect Floyd's style has with most guys. Trust, Cotto will look faster against Trout in December

I hate the Martinez fight at 150. 154-160 or bust

cotto looked slow as **** compared to his prime days at WW. and he had so much wars and wear and tear now. he looks fast compared to margarito of course. cotto didn't looked fast against mayorga either. there's a reason why floyd would not touch him back in 2008.

well, floyd said he would take the fight at 150.

Oscar and Richard and Al have done nothing but try to make this fight.

They even offered to let Manny prove that he was worth 50% while Floyd would prove he was worth what he offered in fight game w/Jim.

Arum shot the idea down.

Arum is the single most corrupt person/thing in boxing.

Actually there was a contract drawn up for the Margarito/Cotto bouts with Arum, and Floyd wanted the Oscar fight somewhere in between.

Arum said no to the deal and Floyd left the company, never doing business with eachother again. That's why they never fought under TR

fake. lol at cleaning up the sport, anyone that knows Floyd can't honestly defend his morals while keeping a straight face.

i'm disappointed in Pac for not originally agreeing to the tests though.
