As always, it's always a matter of time before the pieces start to fit the puzzle http://www.fighthype.com/news/article13399.html

Great read to end my night shift at work and if the case, kudos to Floyd for showing loyalty and stayin true to what he's always said about loyalty. If I were in that position (as tempting as those figures look and sound), I'd do the same. Easy. Al Harmon didn't make Floyd the fighter he is, but he does have a lot to do with making Floyd the rich fighter he is. It would look sooo suspect if Floyd had all those positive things to say about Haymon, to go and turn his back on his mentor, as to say (power phrase) "even though you've done a lot for me, I don't trust". It makes more sense now why 50 said that he (Floyd) has a good heart, but don't think that he's smart. Translation "I respect your loyalty, but my plan of how to get this money is better than what you settled for".

I respect both Floyd & fif, but this one is a 1+ for Floyd if you ask me.

I dont even know what to make of this, and truthfully, who knows what's really going on.

One thing Floyd NEEDS to do, is cut all of these motherfuckers off, ASAP! These 20 and 30 people that he's supporting (family and all), need to beat it. This is EXACTLY how people go broke.

Stuff like this makes me hate rich people, really. All of this gambling, over-the-top fancy lifestyle, court and lawyer fees, that gold digger fiance, that crazy money-hungry baby mama, plotting yes-men, and age...are all seeming to catch up with Floyd.

Cut all of these people off, shoot for your last few big paydays, and make the most of it. He's made too much money and it's too late in his career, for all of this to be going in. Bad enough that we have to watch Manny get jerked around, and now Floyd is catching it as well.

As we all know, when people aren't careful with their money and runs out it, the first complaint usually starts with them feeling like they aren't getting paid for their true worth. We never make what we feel we're truly worth.

What he's been doing with Haymon and GBP thus far, has indeed made him one of the highest paid athletes as of late, so why mess it up? That $80M+ that he made over the past year, sure is enough...when you dont have 30 people around you with your hand out.
