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.

I look at it like this. If I was going to do something big with CShel cuz he brought big things to the table, then he makes his cut, and I make mine, then it's on to the next one. I know exactly what it is and exactly what it ain't. I would be open to doing big things in other places, but we would run the numbers. Cshel would remain my go to guy...we been doin it big all this time. I wouldn't cut em off because of more potential earnings, I would want to figure out how we get more dough together. And between fights, maybe once or twice a year, we going to hang out with Julio Jr. to git on some of that stiiiiiiickyyyyy...and Miguel so we can mess with some boooooorrriiiqquuaaaaassss.....

At the end of the day, there's more to life than money, especially when you already made 80 mil in a year. I would have endorsement deals coming out of my ass though....when you're undefeated and the highest paid athlete, you can endorse anything. And the only thing I would hand out is a low % of interest. I would gather though, that alot of the people he takes care of, especially if it's under Mayweather promotions, is a writeoff.

I would definitely take care of my immediate family though....I wouldn't cut them off. They would have to work for it. Build businesses, get them training, and give a performance based check....except moms though.

Lol! Sounds like a nice plan you got there Big D! Im down.

As far as me saying that he should cut family off, Im talking about the ones who suddenly couldn't take care of themselves when he got big. Not only them, but the "other" family members, like cousins and shit.

I know some people are close to their cousins, but from upbringing and experience...cousins dont make the cut. They're just as grimey, they claim to be close to you when its convenient for them, but most of the time, they're the family member that you have the least communication with...depending on the situation.

Immediate family, I'll take care of them all day long. Im not sure how many endorsements Floyd has, maybe they're right in my face and I totally overlooked them. Glad to see how you put it for immediate family..."they would have to work for it". Great idea!

Haha....yeah, I have about 2 out of 20 that would. The rest wouldn't have my number, they would have to e-mail me. Then I'll mark them as SPAM.

If I was inside and I got a letter like that it would head straight for the trash.

Floyd was smart enough to keep it.

A very useful tool and a great bargaining chip with Al Haymon.

So many rumours going around now Im thinking Haymon, Floyd and 50 are ALL cooking something up.

TMT HAS to mean something.

Dirrell, Berto and Judah...good names to handle in my opinion.
