I bet you'll love Floyd honoring that contract huh

Floyd a G for telling Canelo to **** off.

No need to worry about that.

The point is Floyd verbally agreed to fight Canelo and AGREED to sign a contract with those terms. Those terms WERE drawn up, only Floyd's signature was left. In the meantime Canelo committed to the undercard and with a great opponent, let's face it, for non-*****s Canelo v Trout is the match-up of the year along with Donaire-Rigondeaux...

So the point is Floyd said he'd fight him, said he'd sign, got him committed to the undercard and then obviously in the hope of having Canelo on that card without the guarantee, once everything was sorted he decides not to sign

That's why Canelo is annoyed, the fact is Floyd wanted him on the card but doesn't want to fight him - so it's not Canelo dictating terms, these are terms Floyd already had agreed to, he basically wanted to con Canelo into making him more PPV cash

Look past the man-love *****s - jeez
Hey u stupid mofo, FU and remember that even if something is signed its not even official, Get the **** with your verbal agreement and BS.

Correct but if Floyd signs a contract and Canelo gets a gift that would be **** if Floyd is forced into that.

Lets see, Floyd is lock for $200 mil for 6 fights in the Showtime deal, why would Floyd fight a guy with a pretty difficult style like Trout at 154lbs, when he could easily just take on a bunch of far easier fights at 147lbs?

Come on now, he didn't even fight a certain Filipino midget that alot of his fans were saying Floyd would easily beat.

He was going to fight Pac but Arum cancelled negotiations.

Anyways, I think Floyd could beat Trout. Trout's style isn't that tricky. Hell Cotto won 4 or 5 rounds against him.

Honestly, i blame Floyd just as much as Pac and Arum for that fight not happening. Too much ego.

Im not denying that Floyd could beat him, but Trout certainly is one type of guy Floyd wouldn't be too interested in facing.

Well there isn't a promotional issue that would hold up Floyd/Trout like Arum held up Pac/Floyd. I've no reason to see why Floyd would avoid Trout since I don't feel Trout or Canelo offer anything too dangerous to Mayweather.

Easy.

He can instead fight guys like Garcia, Alexander and the like at 147lbs and still get payed ridiculously.
