The only footage Floyd has ever released of himself sparring are for Cotto and another i forgot. So what youre saying is he looked bad for the sparring during all 41 of his other training camps? Only Floyd knows why he allowed his sparring footage to be released. We can't answer that question nor do i think its that critical for us to look for an answer. it was never that real.

As for what ruben said its a rumor. Whether true or false this is boxing. Shit happens. Many sources outside Floyds camp have said Floyds looking great. This is also his longest training camp.

As for Floyd sparring bigger dudes, he always spars bigger guys. Always. Thats nothing new. He spars them to familiarize himself with the power and weight/height advantage of his opponents.

If your sparring partners aren't giving you work then you need new sparring partners. the fight isn't won on fight night but in training camp. This is boxing gentlemen. Not that serious.


Am not saying he did look bad, but if your live streaming and then you look bad you can't really do much about it can you. I mean when he beat Cotto but didn't look amazing doing it all these excuses started coming out of his camp.

I'm still laughing at how this would be if Guerrero got a black eye in sparring. Again, people would be 150% sure that Floyd would beat him easily, but the minute Floyd gets a black eye/mouse/etc, people go to defending him.

Again, in my recent post, things like this happen all the time, regardless of the fighter, player, whoever. It could mean something, and it could very well mean nothing at all. Again, Floyd allowed his sparring to be taped before the Cotto fight, because he was sparring people that he knew and had sparred before.

Things are much different when the camera's rolling, and you dont know much about who's in front of you.

ricky was shook the whole way leading up to the fight. i don't recall him talking much.

i'm just hoping floyd doesn't leave it all in the ring. like i said before....there's a fine line between reaching that peak and over training. floyd and his ppl have been at this a very long time. i'm sure they know what they're doing. mishaps are common.

Go back and watch 24/7 Ricky talked big shit. It was actually really funny he even made fun of his pad work.

If Guerrero got a black eye in sparring I would say, he got a black eye in sparring. It means nothing. People get hurt in practiced, Lebron James got dunked on in practice what the hell.

Lol true shit. I'm not gonna lie I probably would think Mayweather would stretch his ass if he was gettin worked in sparring. I'm just saying fuck all the outside the ring shit, I'm ready to see what happens in the ring.

if guerrero got a black eye...it's believable and no big deal because he is very easy to hit.

floyd is a defensive master...so him getting a black eye is a big deal. make no mistake about it.

If it means anything to anybody, in HS, LeBron came to Queens and played in this tournament called IS8. He only had like 4 points and he played the entire game. He was on lock. True Story


End of the day though......

he was in h.s. and that ass whoopin probably served him. floyd on the otherhand is on the tail end of his career at the age of 36. ass whoopins at this point will not serve him well.

is there evidence of a BLACK EYE??? please this is rediculous. Mayweather had a bloody nose in the Cotto fight... a jab can cause a nose to leak all night with one good stiff shot-- a black eye can come from a jab or a thumb. and it does not take repeated shots. So please.... This is bullshit. I have seen Hopkins looking weary lumped in worn in camps because he goes that hard. The MYSTERY BLACK EYE IS BULLSHIT-- where is the evidence???
