Money May vs. Guerrero!

What are your unofficial predcitions?

I think Guerrero will try to make it as rough and ugly as possible, but he will eventually fall behind - as everyone - and allow Floyd to capitalize on his mistakes. I don't think The Ghost will break down though. He seems to be very strong-willed so I expect him to fight for the whole 3 minutes of every round. Floyd might get hit early on before he adjusts as he did in the Judah fight. I don't see a KO though. Floyd ain't gonna leave his throne just yet.

I expect Floyd to be defensively minded and picking his shots while frustrating Guerrero with defense on the ropes as I think Robert will try to bully him there.

All in all...I feel the same way as I always do when Floyd announces his opponent - unsure. Hell, I was worried that JMM will get him (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) Not gonna happen though...

Dude did you just shit on Floyd and compliment at the same time? His fans are excited and it was a great move to jump ship from HBO to showtime. I don't get people sometimes, Floyd in no way is perfect but business wise this dude just pulled a Royal Flush out from no where. Come on man, enjoy this shit don't be a debbie downer. In your world what would you want Floyd to do to satisfy your high ass standards? Man... He inked a 6 fight deal within 30 months, what more can you want? Come on Chsels come on,

Is that you, Floyd?

I'm not being a debbie downer, I was more so addressing Floyd's fan, not Floyd himself. You're just too blind and excited to see what I was saying.

All you ever do is get on here and spew some of the same verbatim nonsense that Floyd says, as if you're trying to get recruited to the Money Team or something. Chill out with the whole Floyd hero complex you got going on...its almost like you're this dude's PR or public defender. Chill out

PS: Stop spelling my screen name wrong, as if it isn't right there in front of you while you're posting...now THAT would satisfy my standards. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/cool.gif)

wtf!? someone notify cshel that his account has been hacked!!!

clear giveaway...we're discussing guerrero and he's criticizing floyd and his fans! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

I had to put a little twist to it. Some of these guys act like Floyd invented the light bulb, or sliced bread or something. He just added another feather in his cap, in regards to boxing history and bank account.

yeah...more proof! someone hacked cshel's account. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

totally agree with the highlighted. it puts more pressure on floyd...and relieves guerrero to focus on the task at hand.

Honestly, Guerrero cant afford to focus on anything other than the task at hand. He'll have enough obstacles as it, packed weigh-ins, photo shoots, extreme promotional obligations, etc...things that he WONT be able to away from.

Im sure he's used to a fight being signed, doing a few interviews, training, and fighting without this many people noticing. The second he gets caught up in Floyd's "the lights are too big for him" tactics, he'll have that much heavier lifting to do.

Floyd made a HUGE business move, but also gave Robert a chance to be overlooked, which could play into Robert's hand. I'm Robert could give a shit about any of this...money is on his mind at the moment. Lol

No dude, I am not on anyone's payroll but I can say that I am a fan and I do not apologize for it. You can be a dick about everything he does, you have a pious attitude towards certain boxers and their fans. Who do you think pushes the sport? If every boxing fan was like your tight ass the sport would be dead. And you say you can give a shit about this but yet you were the main one bitching about Floyd making you wait to officially announce that he was fighting Robert Guerrero. Stop acting like a stuck up bitch and just be a damn fight fan. No one said Floyd invented anything, but respect the man's hustle and work. American fans are the worse. They are so quick to crap on any athlete because they do not cater to their standards. While you were complaining about Floyd taking forever and a decade to announce this fight he was closing a big contract with Showtime to fight for at least 6 times so fans like you can continue to bitch and complain about what he doesn't do. Again, be thankful is all I am saying. You are too critical. We have enough Skip Baylesses and other loud mouth know it all sports critics. All I am saying is be a fan and not some cynical blow hard. Ali encountered the same problem (before you explode I am not comparing Ali and Floyd) no one appreciated his genius and what he gave to boxing until after he long retired. People were too busy calling him a loud mouth and making death threats to him. Now he is the most celebrated athlete. Fans should of appreciated him the way they do now when he was boxing. I am just tired of hearing "fans" always complain about something. Enjoy it is all I am saying CSHEL86 (happy?) And you keep saying Floyd is that you? If I was I am sure you would complain about how I'm posting on fighthype and not training.

If anybody knows my history around here...these type of exchanges typically dont go well...for the poster standing across from me. With that in mind, I digress on the nonsense and I'll actually try to make a point.

All I'm saying is, some of guys make it seem like this dude is the Second Coming of Christ, and he does nothing wrong. Trust me, I wasn't on my head to hear this Robert Guerrero announcement, I was more so upset because dude just started his "make 'em wait" circus, while all of these other fights were getting cancelled/postponed. Hell, I just wanna watch boxing.

"Fans" like me, enjoy all of the surrounding fights of the sport, not just when two men fight twice a year, or the other one fights every lunar eclipse. It's "fans" like you, that make me not like the guy. Well, you're not completely a pro-Floyd fan, I have seen you discuss other fights and fighters, so I cant plant that on you. ("fan" comments below do not apply to you)

When I start seeing guys posting about these other fights on the weekend, then I'll change my opinion of them. Otherwise, they can back away with all of the pro-Floyd, "Floyd said this", "Floyd said that", blah, blah, blah. They can even stop with all of the "+1" when you seem to have put me in my place so to speak. Lol

It's funny how (when cornered) those same guys will point the finger at others who actually put time into posting their thoughts, predictions, fantasy fights, etc. and say that "they don't have a life" and so on, but as soon as one guy (Floyd) does as much as cuts a fart, dudes suddenly take time out of their "oh so busy" lives, and post their every thought about him, and how he's the greatest and blah, blah, blah.

Since we are talking about how fans "push" the sport, I will avidly stand up and thank EVERYONE who CONSISTENTLY puts their time and thoughts into this forum, otherwise, it would be DEAD, as you mentioned that boxing would be dead without fans. See how that works?

Believe it or not Dolimite, I truly appreciate your contributions around here (yes, I do have a sensitive side), but don't come out of the wood works and try to correct me on my opinion when I clearly didn't aim anything towards you, it makes you look like one of those "fans" that I spoke of.

Traffic around here (when it comes to new Floyd headlines) is like people gawking at wreck on the freeway. The regular commuters just want to keep traffic at a smooth pace, but others just wanna slow up the flow by rubbernecking at the accident (in comparison to Floyd's fights). As soon as everyone's got their look in, traffic suddenly begins to run smooth again...which becomes a pain the ass for those who are simply trying to fulfill their daily commute.
