Tszyu was paid really good money to face Hatton in Manchester.

Sergio Martinez: "Chicken Floyd won't fight me" (fight hype article)

"Chicken" Floyd chose the faded, smaller Cotto (who is not the same after the beatings he took from Plasterito and Pacquiao) over Sergio.

Floyd protects his "0" like a nun protects her virginity.

I'm not one of those, but it is easy to suggest.


I am litereally laughing for his fans need to apologise Floyd for Not fighting, this and this and this and that guy.

“I’m focused 100% on Matthew Macklin, and I’m not interested in anything else. Floyd had enough time to reach a deal. Anyway, if he wants the fight he knows who he has to speak with. I said 150 and I will keep my promise. The same way I ask Hopkins and Ward [to meet at] a catch-weight, I don’t have problems in fighting at Jr. Middleweight.Talk is cheap. Fight or shut up. November would be a good month. I would have enough time to reach 150 and you could be recovered from your holidays"

Tszyu was a bigger star in the game then Mayweather during this time. If Tszyu would have demanded that fight he could have probably got it.

Mayweather and Tszyu weren't gonna fight after Tszyu beat Mitchell again in November 2004.

Mayweather was about to fight in his second straight eliminator bout for Gatti's WBC belt. With Gatti being an HBO fight, it was both an easier fight to make and win.

Plus, Tszyu was already negotiating with Hatton not long after the Mitchell rematch. Tszyu was demanding a big payday and got it, but he had to face Hatton in Manchester to get it.

that was 7 months and someone just counted that the same 7 months were
the biggest Floyd's layoff to date. 3 months is completely enough for the fight
to happen and it could take place in mid February 2005 ... just enough for Tsyzu
to fight his mandatory afterwards.

in general it seems that Floyd have a blueprint of ducking by having big layoff
... just waiting what happens and just before the window for a big fight opens
he is setting up a phoney fight just in case so he can always say ...
"look I can't fight you now, I had big layoff and now I'm already booked for a tune up"

Sergio is fighting Macklin, but his first choice was Floyd or Chavez Jr., who both ducked him. Interview with Sergio:

Quote:
On March 17th at Madison Square [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], Sergio Martinez will look [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] his fifth consecutive [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] against Matthew Macklin for the WBC Diamond Middleweight title. ‘Maravilla’ talks about Macklin, Barker, boxing politics and the continued frustration at not landing a super-fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. or Manny Pacquiao.

LF: First of all how’s preparation going for the fight against Matthew Macklin?

SM: Everything is turning out as planned. As in the last fight, I am training in Oxnard, California with my trainer Pablo Sarmiento and the collaboration of Russ Anbers. I think we are doing great work.

LF: What were the other options on the table and how frustrated are you at not landing a lucrative fight?

SM: Well, Sampson (Lewkowicz) and Lou (Di Bella) are dealing with all of this, but I can tell you that the main option was Julio Cesar Chávez Jr. Everybody knows what happened, so Macklin was the best option. In fact, he was also robbed in Germany. Regarding Floyd, Cotto and all of them, there is not much to say, they just do not want to know anything about [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] against me. It is so sad but this is how things are in boxing right now.

LF: Towards the end of the year you made some comments towards Chavez Jr, Jose Sulaiman and HBO. Was that a case of your anger and frustration boiling over? Do you feel as though it had to be said?

SM: I think I [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] what I had to. People like Chávez and Arum are finishing this [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. And the worst of this is that this is my [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], which is a business, is too a sport and sometimes I am not very sure (what’s going on).

LF: What is the current relationship like now between you, Sulaiman and HBO? Is Sulaiman damaging [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] so much so that he should stand down?
[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
SM: Lou talked with HBO. We have been talking and it seems things are solved now. I understand that it is a company that is interested in their own benefit but what they did was not good. I hope things get better from now own. Regarding to Don José, I have nothing to say. I have defended and I defended WBC up to where I could, I have also been ambassador of WBC Cares Program. Fans are not stupid; they do really know who we are. I use to recognize a champion of the world if he has a green belt. I hope we will recognize them again. Nobody is perfect. Everybody make mistakes.

LF: How different is the challenge from Macklin compared to your last fight with [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Barker? Did you watch the Macklin-Sturm fight and do you think Macklin won?

SM: Of course Macklin won that fight and it should be a unified championship fight. We are going through hard moments in boxing and we have to live without belts. There will be a war in the fight and we won't get to the final bell. It is obvious I will knock him out. Barker did an intelligent fight, very good boxing technique, but Macklin is a brawler. They both have a great fight in England in the future.

LF: Did you take your foot off the gas against Barker or was it a case of he surprised you more than anything else?

SM: As I said on many other occasions, the week before the fight I got my left elbow dislocated. In the fight I almost did not use that hand, basically I only worked with the right one. Barker did a great fight, so intelligent and so well studied, but at 100% I should have had knocked him out beforehand.

LF: Do you ever get tired of questions about you fighting Mayweather and that [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] of [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]?

SM: I have always said that Mayweather is the best [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] nowadays. It would be an honour for me to fight against him and knock him out. I'm getting tired by the fact that not only Mayweather, but Cotto, Pacquiao, Chávez and all those chickens are always avoiding me.

LF: Are you [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] of the Mayweather-Pacquiao will they-won’t they situation? Can boxing cope without such a fight not happening?

SM: Yes, I am so tired of them two. Pacquiao is just a puppet in the hands of Bob Arum and Mayweather, it makes me sad to see him. Boxing will carry on without them, but it is shameful what is happening.

LF: You’re in your 15th professional year as a fighter, is there any aspect of [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] that you find tougher than you did all those years ago?



SM: The only thing is getting more difficult is [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Now, for me the most important thing is showing the world that I can be the number one pound for pound, this is the reason why I insist so much in fighting against Mayweather or Pacquiao. The day I do that I may say farewell as a professional fighter.

LF: Have you ever fallen out of love with the sport? How did you overcome that kind of feeling?

SM: I have never fallen out of love with this sport and I will never do. Since I was a kid I thought of me doing sport, first with a bike, then football and finally boxing. Even now in my free time I try to do some other sports. In Spain I have participated in many adventure raids and I love running. But the most important thing: I do not know the words drugs and alcohol.

LF: Given the middleweight division has a depth of talent; is there anyone at 160lbs that you see as an emerging force?

SM: I think there is talent in the division, but I also think that all of these guys that want to fight against me should fight between them first. All my last fights, but Barker, were or had been world champions. Lee, Pirog, Geale, or Martin Murray are good boxers. If they fight between them we could see good fights and I would really like to give them an opportunity.

LF: What is the best piece of advice you could give to a fighter who is just starting out?

SM: It is not enough to wish for something, you have to want and love it too. Do not miss any day of training and do not [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] the illusion for this sport, this is the best advice I can give.
Floyd soiled himself in fear when he saw Sergio's KO of Williams. No way will "Chicken" Floyd ever step into the ring with Sergio.

Tszyu was the star and the A side, it is up to Tszyu to pick Mayweather. Its like saying Berto or Martinez is ducking Mayweather because they haven't made the fight yet.
