Can't help but applaud that.

Honestly, I like Mayweather. I respect him. He's built a good thing. You tell him I said that.

Respect for Money May!

And Haymon!

Mayweather is winning the PR battle, floyd v canelo will do 1million ppv, so that's a good dance partner to have.

Floyd is making pac look like some bitch, for someone who so desperately wanted the mayweather fight according to Roach he seems very quiet when it comes to committing to the ass whooping. But I don't blame pac, if you can't beat grandpa marquez how you gonna beat Floyd?

Alex, I'll take zero credibility for $100.

R03 --> 10-9 AW ------------ Same as last round. Similar to Dirrell-Froch
R04 --> 10-9 AW ------------ AW mauling, here we go. Trying to cut up CF with elbows; AW tiring
R05 --> 10-9 CF ------------- CF comes on at end. AW a bit tired, CF more openings
R06 --> 10-9 CF ------------- Nice AW left hook near end round, but this round going how CF wants it to
R07 --> 10-9 AW ------------ Closer round
R08 --> 10-9 CF ------------- Close round; not sure here
R09 --> 10-9 CF ------------- More of what CF wants; but judges likely give to AW. CF broken nose?
R10 --> 10-9 AW ---[5-5] --- Very close, little difference here
R11 --> 10-9 CF ----[6-5F] -- Ward looks bad
R12 --> 10-9 AW ---[6-6] --- Close round; AW only hold, hit, etc. Not a good look for Ward

114-114 Draw

Good to see 2 judges had it essentially as I did, just a one point difference (115-113).

118-110 judge is way off, IMO.

Sad to say, that doesn't matter. Pac-Cotto, if that is the fight that takes place next for Pacquiao, will almost certainly draw well. Pac almost certainly will become the first person to have a 1M+ PPV in six straight years (4?) or whatever the number is, to pass Tyson.

Floyd, on the other hand, doesn't seem to have a dance partner for May 5. Which means he could face either going back on what he told the Nevada judge (bringing in $100M or whatever to Vegas) or else a possible Ortiz-like dud vs Canelo, Guerrero or some other Plan D.

It might seem like Floyd is "winning" now, but he's not. Just as he didn't win with the post-Pac/Cotto I "A-side meth," PED nonsense.

Here is what desperation might look like:

* Tweeting that you're donating to cancer, so everyone knows you are, really, a "good guy." Will it work, or is it too obvious, even for Floyd fans?

* Appearing to pander to your African-American followers and friends (that is, the people who buy your PPVs) by invoking MLK and Ali. Possibly trying to get transference from those two legends to yourself, to get viewers for your May 5 fight

* Continuing to take to Twitter and Facebook and seeningly "negotiate" through the public (which is a questionable strategy)

I understand that Floyd probably doesn't want to be in the position of providing his own PPV numbers again (as was done after Floyd-Ortiz) to potentially try to keep his image as a draw alive after 5/5/12. But this is becoming sad, almost tragic, the apparent desperation here.

If I'm Floyd, I pay Canelo what he wants and then work like crazy to make May 5, 2012 successful. Maybe you even throw in some extra PPV "buys" from another agency or from yourself, as I think was done recently for tickets to a Mayweather fight, so it would look like a sellout. If you have to artificially inflate the numbers (again?), then that might be the route Mayweather wants to take.

The truth is that what I'm seeing here appears to be the decline of a once-proud figure. I know it happens to all of the greats, but there is something kind of unfortunate in watching it apparently happen in real-time, and via social media and favored outlets.

Another attempt to Hate of Mayweather. But what you fail to realize is that because he cannot fight a suitable fight for May 5th is because of his Greatness. FMJ cannot fight Khan, Peterson, Guererro, JMM, Berto, Cotto, Alvarez or Ortiz again. Because people will label it as "Cherry-picking". But Pacquaio can fight all these opponents and they would all be called "GOOD FIGHTS". People believe is only legitimate challenge is at the MW level. People don't even believe anymore that Pacquiao is a legitimate challenge that why Arum, Roach and Pactards don't want the fight.

The Price to Pay for GREATNESS!!!

I gotta run for a bit. Back in awhile.

So, Floyd Trolls: Pile on now, while I cant respond.


Floyd Trolls: Keep up the PR effort. Props on it! I respect you guys, Haymon, Floyd Sr. & Jr. and all of the Money Team (honestly, I do. Gotta give props where they are due for a well-run operation)


Everyone else: See you in a bit!

Another TS who doesn't want to actually see Pac get in the ring with Mayweather, so they can continue to flood forums with this inane bullshit.
