While I'd like Martinez to receive a nice payday, people should stop with him fighting Mayweather. He should stop with the fighting Mayweather talk.

There is a reason why weight classes exist..... I've never been a fan of FMJ fighting at 154. If he were to go any higher I believe Sergio would give him major issues.

I have to go back and watch it again, but I just remember it ending in a shitty manner. Lol

Marketability trumps everything in boxing, hence why Canelo is so close to landing a Mayweather fight. It sucks, but if it didn't, then we wouldn't be talking about boxing. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Oh yeah, Im not sure which Diaz this is, that Khan is getting ready to fight. More than likely, he isn't much of a threat though.


totally disagree with that statement. skill trumps everything.

That's in the ring not outside of it. Boxing has changed whether some of us like it or not. And if it doesn't make dollars then it doesn't make sense.

well fights like donaire/rigondeaux, canelo/trout and matthysse/peterson give me hope.

I agree professor. Alvarez will find this out as well as the Filipino Flab!

Skills dont always land a fighter those big paydays...especially if their promoter cant cut the mustard.

if they don't have skill...they can't stay at the top long enough to make the pay days. i guess it works both ways.

Chavez Jr. is a perfect example! Popular beyond all measure but the moment he actually faced a real fighter he was outclassed. He did hit Sergio with a big shot but guess what Sergio kept on coming. I think Manny is a victim of his popularity overshadowing his boxing skills. The guy has heart and is an exiting fighter but the three boxers that gave him fits were Shane, JMM, and Bradley. All technically sound boxers. So I would say skills pay the bills and popularity pays the rent but overall skills gives you a longer career.
