DiBella has thrown 151 with an 80/20 split out there. After the Macklin fight, I believe. Though that was before they were able to at least get Chavez in the ring. Be really surprised if they don't exercise the option on the rematch Arum isn't already clamoring for. Sergio has said he doesn't want it in Texas as has already been suggested as early as this past Sunday.

151, now that would 'Chad' the victory up if it were to happen. The kind of thing Floyd would probably need to convince him though.

By the way 'Chad' or 'Chadding' will now replace 'Lalonde-ing' as the correct shorthand for a fighter draining himself stupidly and living up to the consensus fears beforehand of him being a weak ass bitch.

And Dawson was dire compared to Donny

I wish Floyd would fight Sergio. as much as a Floydboy as I am I take Sergio on points due to activity and movement if they fight early next year.

But Serg is getting surgery and Floyd will probably fight Canelo and retire.

Sergio probably surpassed Floyd on my favorite actives list this year (Maravilla, Money, Marquez). I know in the back of my mind I'd be rooting for Martinez were that fight to take place. Not only the movement, activity, angles, but constant use of the jab and power in both hands that holds significant consequences for Floyd.

My faves are still Floyd and Bute, then Martinez certainly. I think I'd root for Floyd at 160 and Serg at 154.

I wonder why so many people are using the Barker and Macklin fights as a gauge to Mayweather/Martinez. Floyd is smaller, less active in the ring, not to mention less powerful and more defensive (than both, and even Martinez)

I just have a hard time seeing him getting discouraged in there like Ortiz and Mosley did. Regardless of the outcome I doubt Sergio would just pack it in and stop trying to win once Floyd makes him miss and counters him a few times. ***y has more tools to worry Floyd than vice versa, and is more willing to use them, not to mention all of the angles and movement....just my opinion.

Less active in the ring than Barker?

Cotto wasn't discouraged, had his moments but Floyd still won comfortably and showed serious handspeed and ability.

The Barker and Macklin fight just showed that Sergio is open to certain punches. You'd think that Floyd, quicker, more elusive, smarter and better equipped for boxing than both Barker and Macklin would be able to do better.

Considering the long and winding road it was to get to the top, it wouldn't make sense for Martinez to ever 'pack it in' no matter if he's getting robbed, floored, behind on points or rocked to the brink of a fight he thoroughly dominated the vast majority of. Mayweather would be in a fight for the full 12.

Considering both Macklin and Barker were dropped and stopped I think it's a bad barometer for what would happen if Floyd/***y ever did meet up. The right hand works against a southpaw, thats no secret.

Cotto also had success but Floyd's philly shell is pretty much impenetrable against ortho's, not so much against southpaw where his left side is open to jabs and hooks, Judah gave him ridiculous trouble pot shooting from the outside until he folded (as per usual) and just didn't throw punches.

Both are great at adju sting so I think it'd be a great match, slightly favouring Sergio, for me anyways.

Judah gassed and folded. Martinez is the opposite of one who folds and has exceptional stamina in addition to being the naturally bigger man with more at his disposal to use.
