i'll put it this way...

do u think showtime payed all that money for nothing? his demise is inevitable. he's not getting through six more fights without a loss. a close look at his last three fights should give anyone paying attention a good understanding. showtime has rolled the dice to be the network that floyd finally loses on. showtime has always been the home of the upset. there are a few guys out there now who can possibly beat him. guerrero is one of them.

Dudes like Floyd (and Hopkins) with the kind of defense and ring IQ he/they have will never get KO'd coldly and will be far too careful against dangerous foes to place themselves into a point where they cannot come back from once they get rocked.

Floyd has been rocked a couple of times, how did he react? He reacted with patience, intelligence and full awareness of what was going on and then he turned around and dominated, so did BHop (when rocked by Pascal).

I can't see why some seem to think that the competition matters as much, both fighters (Mayweather and Bernard) have done the same things consistently from fight to fight and yet no fighter has really been able to figure out a way to KO either of them, let alone totally dominate either man.

I think Floyd will walk away from this sport with an unblemished record regardless of who he faces because his defense and ring IQ is just on another level and fighters like this only tend to come around every 20 years or so much in the way that a Track Star like Bolt only seems to sprout up every blue Moon or so.

Floyd will go out as an undefeated fighter!


i take nothing away from either guy. bhop is the greatest of this era with floyd being a close second. the thing they have in common....both are self managed and are experts at picking the opposition they can beat. floyd is better at that. bhop has taken far more risks in his career though which is why he has a few losses. i think bhop has way more accomplishments even with his losses.

you spoke of track stars....edwin moses was notorious for skipping races he thought he might lose. floyd seems to be pretty good at retiring when the competition looks steep and coming back when the smoke clears. roger did an interview after floyd beat hatton that pretty much stated the game plan. they haven't invented anything new. ray leonard did the same thing late in his career.

thats what I hated about Leonard, for the Hagler fight he said he waited till after the Mugabi fight because a part of Hagler stayed in the ring that night. Just such a snake.

it wasn't just the hagler fight. he did the same for the duran rematch as well. he never wanted to prove he could beat the best duran or the best hagler...he wanted to have an upperhand. i guess it's an intelligent approach...but it does seem a bit cowardly.
