the timeline was this. cotto just beat mosley, floyd just beat hatton. it was the biggest fight at WW (even the whole of boxing) at that time. the hype was crazy if you were visiting boxing forums back then. but floyd and his camp made some excuses (what's new?) about cotto not being a draw. floyd also mentioned he needs to heal his body up and went on vacation instead.

Floyd hits baby momma and threatens kids - pleads "no contest" to avoid going to court and facing potential 37-year sentence, Flomos say this is no indication of his guilt. Settled for 3 months in prison instead. Comes out 15lbs lighter, can't fight Pacman

Floyd accuses Pacman of using PEDS, Pacman sues him, goes to court, Floyd doesn't turn up, settles out of court with Pacman. Flomos say Floyd was right and is cleaning up the sport of boxing LOL!!!

What a great guy, beats up his kids' mother in front of them, threatens them when they try to escape and call the police, spreads malicious rumours/gossip about Pacman like a bitch, backs down when it goes to court and retracts what he said and makes public apology

It started intially as a demand in negotiations. A demand he had every right to ask for imo (I don't know why people think Floyd was out of line. A fighter can demand almost anything he wants to lol). I still think Pacquiao's excuses for why he inititally said no are bullshit. Anyone who doesn't have their head up there ass can see that (he straight up lied people... twice lol). And the fact that other fighters are catching on is ultimately good for the sport.

But this whole campaign to "clean up the sport" with t-shirts and shit... THAT'S bullshit.
(IMO of course)

Timothy Bradely's "0" certainly didnt help sell The paquiao ppv megafight.

floyd genuinely believes other fighters use p.e.d.'s. With the recent past - seems like he's right (i dislike floyd but do believe pac was juicing - based almost solely on mosley's feedback)

I can tell you for sure it's genuine. Floyd wasn't the only person suspicious of Pacquiao using PEDs. It became pretty rampant after the Cotto fight. I personally always thought Pacquiao was an incredible athlete and moving up a few pounds wouldn't be a problem for him. Especially since he had trouble making 130 and 135. Good matchmaking helped alot too. I can see where Floyd and others are coming from though.

Floyd took back all he said. That means all you said is worthless. You, are worthless.

Floyd already lost to JLC, DLH and Miguel Cotto.
