FM: I mean, I can't wait. As of right now, I know May 4th is a date, and in September there's a date. That's what the CEO of Mayweather Promotions, Leonard Ellerbe, said. At this particular time, everything is still up in the air. If those are my dates, I'm looking to go out there and perform on those days and look well for my fans.

This was an interview Floyd did with Ben Thompson at Fighthype.

He has never said he was looking to fight 3 times. Plus you he was in the bing for a little while so cant be mad at him for not fighting twice last year.

Also Pacman is suspended so couldn't start preparing until sometime in April which would not leave enough time.

So really the many you were talking about turns out to be Bradley and Marquez as everyone else cant even fight Floyd in May.

I just wanted to point out you were going abit far!
But why would you only talk about welterweights when that wasn't the point I was making?

Every guy I listed would be a tougher fight, imo, than rob. That was my point.

I think there are alot of good fights but most are actually at 154lbs. Like you said not many at his natural weight class.

Even those at 154lbs are gonna be hard to make as they aren't very credible, so Floyd would get s.hitted on if he made them.

For instance: Lara looked unimpressive against Vanes, Kirkland isn't even fighting anymore even though it would be an interesting match up, K9 is just crude and stands no chance just making a point that the opportunities are pretty thin.

Like I said I wasn't trying to argue just making a point.

The supposed jinx is more likely to hit the Can if he fights Trout.

That's fair enough I just don't think your point related to my post.

CEO of a non existent company? I'm impressed.

Probably because Floyd is a welterweight??

Manny fights at "154" (150) once and nobody even questions his inability to fight at 154. Floyd fights at "154" twice and both times he weighs under the weight limit for the weigh-in and on fight night. Yet Floyd is expected to routinely face bigger guys.

Silly pactards
