    I hope he does stand toe to toe with Maidana like he and Leonard Ellerbe says. I wanna see the legendary "Pretty Boy Floyd" in the ring on May 3rd......leave "Money Mayweather" at home:camby:


    Can he do Maidana like he did Gatti, Corrales, and N'Dou? Yes.


    Will he? That's what Im hoping to see....especially with him saying this stuff now.


    Bring back "Pretty Boy Floyd" with the bald fade:blessed:

    In those fights, though, Floyd boxed. His classic toe to toe battles (Mosley, Ortiz and SOME of the Guerrero fight) are ones where he doesn't box as much as he does fight. I think you mean you want to see him bring out his offensive skills. He may, but I doubt that happens, as Maidana is strong and can knock him off if he slips up.

    Maidana punches wide, he won't have to move. Besides, he can't fight going backwards.

    Floyd didnt box against Gatti breh....he stood there and took him apart.


    And I dont recall seeing that in the Mosley, Ortiz, and DEFINITELY not the Guerrero fight. He was on the move almost the entire Guerrero fight

    I think that was the last time we saw shades of "Pretty Boy Floyd".

    Shane hurt him with that right and Floyd immediately went :ufdup: and walked his ass down. If Shane didn't have such a great chin he would have got stopped imo.

    I do think he will fight Maidana toe to toe though, Maidana won't have enough room to land those looping shots and Floyd will be catching him with shorter crisper shots all night. I think Floyd might fukk around and get a stoppage. :yes:

    Robert Garcia did a VERY smart thing in the Broner fight told him to throw his rights over the top catching Broner on the top of his head/temple when he would shoulder roll. Ironically the 2nd right hand that hurt Floyd in the Mosley fight was the same type of shot looping over the top.

    Imma have to rewatch the Mosley fight....I trust your boxing eyes:salute:


    You know what though, I think by Broner losing to Maidana like he did was the worst thing that could have happened to Maidana as far as his chances against Floyd. Reason being, all the shots he caught Broner with will NOT work against Floyd because he already knows what to expect. Basically, Floyd got to see you against a weaker version of his style and see what you can/cannot do and will be prepared for all the over the top rights/looping left hooks/feints to the body only to redirect upstairs.....he's gonna be prepared for that.


    I think Mayweather IS gonna take Maidana apart, because Maidana is probably the easiest opponent he's faced since Carlos Baldomir. I know someone is gonna come in here and say Ortiz, but Ortiz was faster and stronger than Maidana....plus he was naturally bigger and a lefty. Maidana has none of those advantages except power:manny:

    When you think about it, that's the crazy thing. Maidana isn't going to become some magically different fighter from that fight. We know what he is going to do. So, Floyd already knows how to counter it. The only thing that I'm curious to really see about this fight when Maidana tries to muscle Floyd and then he realizes that he can't do it.

    Right. I think that's the biggest thing, because Floyd got to basically sit down and watch you go up against one of his "pupils", so to speak, and he's never had that advantage against any other fighter.



    I wouldnt be surprised if Maidana got Gotti'd:manny:

    I think we'll see the same Floyd to be honest. He sticks to what he does best and never puts himself in harms way. Im sure he'll be in front of Maidana at times, but I think we'll also see the huge gap in skills between Broner and Mayweather. Maidana is tough so I don't know about Floyd "Gatti'ing" Maidana, but he should win rather comfortably.

    I've almost been convinced that he took this fight to make a point and saved himself from the ridicule of a Khan fight. It is true that a lot of his opponents come into the ring already defeated. Jeff Mayweather, in an interview, brought up something very interesting to me.

    Once spurned, Jeff Mayweather offers perspective on Floyd's career arc, transformation | MLive.com

    He's lucky fans have short memories of things because Maidana's losses to Alexander and Khan are largely things that have been glossed over. I consider myself to be a pragmatic, analytically sound person and I can look at things without bias. I'm a huge Floyd fan, but outside of the perfect punch like Tarver/Jones or Marquez/Pacquiao, I'm not seeing what Marcos can do to compete. They have a great PR team because the one punch ability of Marcos has been oversold like a motherfukker. AB was bring the fight to Marcos while being knocked down. That doesn't appear to me to be a man that possesses Julian Jackson like power. Good to great power? Yes. Something to be mindful of as an opponent? Yes, however, I think that a Shane is faster than Marcos and has more power than a Marcos. Anyways, back to my point of looking without bias, oddsmakers are like that as well and we see how wide these spreads are. They are like that for a reason. We will see that reason on May 3rd. As I've said, I just want to enjoy him for these last 4 fights.

    Exactly. I said this exact thing before.


    With all the shots that Broner was getting hit with, cleanly at that, he was still walking down Maidana and even won the middle rounds of the fight (I gave Broner rounds 3, 5, 6, 7, and 12. And my scorecard had Maidana winning 114-111). Either Marco's power is overrated or Broner has a very good chin:manny:


    I dont see Floyd being KO'd, but this is boxing....we never know, but I'll say I lean more towards Floyd totally dominating Maidana over Maidana getting the KO against a strong chinned Floyd with excellent defense

    Last time Floyd stood toe to toe was with Cotto. I don't think he's doing that with Chino. Then again...

    I could be wrong :mjpls:

    It makes sense to be in his face as Marcos is a straight line forward fighter. Back him up, he's at least 50% less effective. Fighting effectively on your backfoot takes talent. Old ass Erik Morales was doing that to Marcos when they fought. You know, so that 3-4 round trial period that Floyd normally uses to get acclimated to this fight, he won't need it. As Newzz stated, Floyd has had the luxury of watching his fight before he's fought it. To concede such an edge to Floyd is unfair.

    To your point, he stood in the face of Canelo for quite a while. Robert Guererro, he moved more, might be because of the southpaw stance and Robert likes to grind out wins, lay on you while on the ropes. Best way to fight him? Fight with distance and pick him off with jabs and counters. Marcos needs space to get off his awkward punches. Best way to fight him? Get in his face and smother his aggression. Closing the distance as Maidana punches wide while Floyd is straight.

    No

    The reason why is because his hands are too brittle. If it wasn't for that, he would definitely "Gatti" Maidana. He will get a comfortable UD.

    Do I think he will move less in this fight? Yes

    Reason why? Maidana can't fight moving backwards.
