According to Oscar Floyd is afraid of Saul Alvarez... Is Oscar selling tickets for Saul and Trout or is he serious?

Come on, he was all set to fight Paul Williams. He was all set to fight Kirkland. He was all set to fight Ortiz. You know it and I know it so why do you have to make stuff up? Canelo wasn't riding off of anyone's name there...he was going to fight all 3 on a PPV event but through no fault of his own the fights all fell through. Honestly, if you want to deny and debate that FACT, is it really worth talking to you?

What Canelo wanted was pretty simple. He fought on Floyd's last 2 PPV cards in hopes that it would pave the way for a fight against Mayweather in the future. Well Mayweather's team obviously wanted Canelo-Trout on the undercard (and for good reason) so they dangled the possible fight with Mayweather in front of him n hopes that Canelo would accept. Canelo said yes...but instead of HOPING that Mayweather would eventually agree, Canelo wanted in writing. Mayweather declined so Canelo took the Trout fight and made his own event.

There is nothing wrong with either side, so where is the argument from Mayweather fans coming from?

And like I said before, every published report says that the deal was Canelo v Mayweather IF Canelo beat Trout. Period. Like I said, find me one shred of evidence that says otherwise and I will do further research. You have none because you know that was the way it went down. For some really, REALLY odd reason you don't want to give that talking point up. It's sort of weird...

The argument isn't from "mayweather fans" its from boxing fans. I could care less if they fought on separate cards or the same card. The argument is Canelo, in terms of real boxing fans, is absolutely nobody to be demanding a mayweather fight. He has fought no one, he has done nothing, his belt is an accessory, a gift. Yes fights fell through with two decent 154 pounders who had not looked good at all in their passed 2-3 fights, but does that warrant him to go down to lower divisions to just pad Gus already padded record? What about molina? Lara? Delvin? Bundrage? Instead he has his sights set on the ortiz lopez winner!?! Two guys who not too long ago were Jr welterweights. He was a joke before this fight got signed, and even Mexican fans like me know it. At least jcc Jr took his schooling like a man and showed some grit.

Btw I can bet money that the other two times Canelo was on mayweathers cards it was because of golden boys agenda not because of the mayweather camp (Wtf was that all about). He would get way more exposure on cards like that than a normal hbo showcase back then.

Canelo isn't demanding anything. Team Mayweather/GBP asked Canelo if he wanted to fight on Mayweather's undercard. Canelo said he would if Floyd signed an agreement. Floyd denied so Canelo made his own event. I don't see what it so unreasonable about that. Mayweather wanted Canelo on the undercard...Canelo made a counter-offer and Mayweather declined. Why is that such an insult to you? It almost sounds like you believe Canelo should get on his knees for Mayweather, fight on his undercard, and then wipe his mouth and say thank you when everything is over.

Would it really have been that much of a difference if Canelo simply said no with no counter-offer?

Its not the fact he made a counter offer, its the fact he made a counter offer like he was some big shot.

He should of asked rather than demanded. Simple scenario when I was younger my dad was the hand that fed me so if I wanted something I could

A: I demand money from him and end up with a punch in the face for being disrespectful

B: I ask for some money, give him a good reason why I should have it, generally I was doing well at school, and this makes him happier.

If Canelo vs Trout was a ppv and he did good numbers and he went to Floyd can we do this, I bring in the money. I just beat the top 154lber and Floyd refused then you can male a case for Floyd ducking him. But at the moment he's averaging a C at best since he's been taking the easier tests and because of that their worth less.

Floyd is not Canelo's daddy so using you vs your father is NOT a reasonable comparison. It is rather insulting that you would make that comparison. Like I said, Canelo has a bunch of good fights available for him. If Floyd doesn't want to fight...that's fine. Canelo will go on with his career.

And I don't know how valid the "Canelo needs to prove himself in a PPV event" argument is when the guy Floyd hand-picked to fight has even less "star power" than Canelo. And who is Canelo going to fight in the fall if not Canelo? Devon Alexander? Zab Judah? Danny Garcia? Andre Berto? LoL....not a PPV star if you combined the fanbases of all 4 fighters.

I don't think Floyd is scared...but I think he has no intention of fighting in the fall. He is a once a year fighter at this point. My guess is that he fights the winner of Judah-Garcia in the fall if he happens to fight and then we may see Canelo-Floyd in May of 2014 or 2015.

I hope this is a joke. Cause no one wants to see that. And who is Canelo going to fight in the fall? Surely not another jr. middle weigh. He is going to fight Keith Thurman or the winner of Broner and Paulie. Canelo has not proven himself and he will not do over 300K PPVs for his first fight. Yes he has a lot of Hispanic fans but guess what? They alone can't bring in big PPV numbers or buys. People tune in to see Mayweather and yes there was the ones who watched Saul. They did not turn off the TV after Saul fought.
Mayweather has his options at 154 and at 147. Ortiz wasn't a star and look what happen with that PPV. 1.2 or 1.3 million buys. That is pretty damn good in my opinion. Guerrero fight will do just as well. Plus Saul has to get by Austin, do not count your eggs before they hatch. WHich is what Saul seems to be doing. He is looking over Trout which he should not be doing. So if Saul loses then what?

The way he went about negotiating with Mayweather was not smart. You can not make demands we you have not earned the right to. Do not bite the hands that have fed you and gave you exposure. If Saul was not on any Mayweather cards do you honestly believe that more people would of heard of him? I think not. He should of played his part and waited his turn. I won't fight on your card unless you sign a contract to fight me in September? That is called strong arming someone and you do not strong arm someone unless you are actually holding your own and has proven that you can hold your own show with plenty of success. That is like Jermaine Jackson telling Michael Jackson to be a back up singer because Jermaine sung one verse on an album and all the sudden he should be the man! Yeah right! And before you ask what had Ortiz done to deserve a shot at Mayweather? Doesn't matter, Mayweather picked him and that is all the difference. Ortiz did not pick Mayweather it was the other way around. Saul better hope he puts on a spectacular performance or he will look like the biggest ass in all of boxing. Fuckin diva.
