He'll keep coming back for the money, it's inevitable. He's good at managing risk / reward though.

Holyfiled made over $200 million so he made more than everyone outside of a few.

Hell, Oscar didnt go broke, He is no different or better than Floyd.
Holyfield made over 250 million.. He was a heavyweight legend..

HEAVYWEIGHT.. Not a midget weighter... Floyd is just lucky this era's heavyweights are not big stars because that is the money division.

Get your facts straight. Holyfield was a Jesus Freak with over 200 million and still ended up broke and in a downward spiral....

Oscar was different, he never displayed the insane lack of control and money spending Floyd is displaying now.

Floyd Having large amounts of money in trusts and annuities guaranty he won't be broke, large amounts of his capital aren't even accessible for many years.

well lets hope he does end up like those two. he avoided fighters just like jones did. so it would be good to see him be on the receiving end. just like his over matched opponents are when they fight floyd.

Why does he need another 100-200 million? He has already made more money in his career than most boxers that ever lived. He has earned enough to retire now. Most pro boxers are lucky to earn 1 million in career earnings (which I consider to be a good career), I find it disrespectful of you to be wishing for Floyd to earn another 100-200 million. If he wants to blow cash, he will blow cash no matter how much money he has in the bank.

I voted no chance at all, because i thought you meant career wise.. I doubt that Floyd will end up getting beat and KO'ed again and again.. I think that Pac could suffer an ugly defeat or two, but i think that he will pull out quick and fall back on his political career.

For the money.. Floyd should have a ton of money on his bank account, Manny is probably not complaining either and he also has a career in politics, which probably also helps..
Floyd is good at making money, but how good he is at managing/keeping them could be a question.. I however don't think that Manny is the type of guy who consumes so much money that it could threating his economy.

Or.... you're just an idiot?

I can see Pac retiring (hopefully) before it gets to that point.

As for Floyd - he's a defensive mastermind, and probably the best defensive fighter to ever lace up boxing gloves. He sure as **** won't be getting knocked down/out by tomato cans.

I still don't think Floyd will fight again, but if he does it will be 1-2 times more (maximum).

At least Holyfield hasn't made as much of a fool out of himself as RJJ has

It won't happen because the opportunity will disappear. Little guys don't last so long and once the skills erode nothing is left.
