Am I the only one tired of casual fans or "new" fans trying to pump up this Mayweather/Martinez fight? Fuck it, let it go, more than likely it wont happen. People are crying about Floyd moving up to 160 to fight Sergio, or Sergio coming down to 154...here's what will happen:

1. Floyd will possibly lose because of the weight (160) and other nuances that comes with it.
2. Sergio will come down to 154 and possibly hurt himself doing so (weight drained)
3. We've have a bunch of inbred trolls all over the net, arguing points #1 and #2

Dammit man, Sergio JUST fought 2 weeks ago, his knee or whatever the fuck it is, is jacked up, and his hand looks like shit. I haven't been reading around, but I've been hearing about him calling out Floyd. Not sure if these new bed-wetters out here are digging up old interviews of Sergio begging, or Sergio really wants another payday, regardless of his injuries.

Who in hell knows what Floyd is thinking about at the moment, either he's not thinking about boxing, or he's waiting for somebody to put on a big performance, to announce a comeback. Typical Floyd. Anyhow, Im tired of this retarded stuff, Floyd has only been out of jail for a little over a month, and Sergio is only 2 weeks removed from a fight that taxed his body in ways that he may not have wanted.

Maybe I'm just pissed up and tired of reading BS. Lol

Thoughts?

Martinez is a "White Elephant" of sorts because the prospects of Mayweather fighting him are ebon to nonexistent. Yes Martinez dismantled a much lesser skilled opponent in Chavez (anybody that didn't call it the way it happened is delusional) over the course of twelve rounds, yeah. Does that mean a Mayweather fight is in the cards or even should be? Of course not, focus on the words "lesser skilled." If you beat someone that has Chavez's work ethic, unproven record, what does that do for you actually? Because what you're really hoping for as his opponent is that the undeserved hype surrounding Chavez himself is somehow conferred upon you.

Martinez's name is only in the mix because it's a fight that could actually be made with Mayweather, without all of the promotional wizardary of Bob Arum trying to avoid it. When the obvious fight can't be made, it then falls to anyone else to give the "hated" Mayweather his comeuppance, even if the fight isn't practical or lucrative. It's all about name calling, hating, and matching Mayweather with improbable opponents.

No matter what Floyd does during his active career, he'll never be good enough, why? Because he isn't humble or contrite enough like other African American athletes.

not really, it's fine to have confidence in your skills, Ali did, but Floyd is a straight up prick, and chose to play the part of the prick, that's what the public aren't too fond of him.

"Prick?" Please, that's a subjective term that means squat in the end and mainly finds it's fault line in race on some level I suspect, don't get me wrong, I'm sure there are plenty of African American folks that despise Floyd Mayweather regardless of his race obviously. However, what I find interesting and somewhat disturbing is the raw vitriol that's unleashed toward Mayweather. Sure, his antics don't necessarily endear him to some fans, but I find the reaction to him to be out of proportion to his remarks. The mindless commentary by some makes me think that boxing, despite it's storied history is really a refuge for idiots.

That's my take.....

meh throwing money at the armed up forces isn't exactly a going to earn him fans, every big star in the sport came off in a certain way, Ali was witty, Tyson was terrifying, what's Floyd? In the ring obviously a master, but out of it? Seems like a prick and while yes its subjective boxing is subjective.
