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

QUOTE (KOpower @ Apr 12 2013, 12:14 PM) *
Of course nobody wants to see Floyd vs Judah or Garcia but Floyd has never been about giving fans exciting fights. He has a guaranteed deal with Showtime so he can afford to take a joke fight against Garcia/Judah IF he were to fight a 2nd time this year. If not the Judah-Garcia winner...who? Alexander? Berto? Peterson? None of those fights are legacy-building challenges. The winner of Canelo-Trout would be but there is a 0.0% chance that Floyd fights the winner next. Heck, it would be better to see Floyd vs Manny or Martinez but that certainly won't happen. The options for Floyd that aren't named Canelo are pretty slim. Here is a realistic list...

1. Garcia/Judah winner
2. Lucas/Peterson winner
3. Amir Khan
4. Andre Berto
5. Devon Alexander
6. Paulie Malignaggi
7. Cotto rematch

Meh...NONE of those fights are appealing with the exception of maybe Amir Khan and even Khan should beat a Peterson/Ortiz/Berto/Lucas type before he gets a shot. The bottom line though is that none of those names do much. The biggest event would be a Cotto rematch...but even that seems EXTREMELY redundant and unnecessary.

Canelo has a bunch of good fights in front of him. He has Trout in a few weeks. The Angulo-Lara winner is out there. I think a Mexican Independence day fight against Cotto would be a BIG draw. Those are 3 154 pound fights that can happen. They you have a few 147 fighters that could move up and those names have already been discussed. Canelo just 23, so he isn't in the final few fights of his career like Mayweather is.

"Canelo can't make demands". I keep hearing this but you forget that someone was asking something of Canelo first. It's not like Canelo bum-rushed a Mayweather event demanding Floyd sign a contract. He was asked about fighting on Floyd's undercard. He said ONLY if Floyd signs a contract. How is that such a big mistake? Is it really that different if Canelo simply says no? I don't think so. The notion that Canelo should continue to fight on Floyd's undercard is insane. Canelo is NOT a Mayweather promotions fighter. He can go out to Texas and put on his own event and have his own night and get paid more money in the process...so why in the bloody hell would he continue to fight on Floyd's undercards when it is clear that Floyd has no immediate intention of fighting him?

And if fighting on Floyd's undercard is such an honor, why couldn't they get Broner to do it? Why couldn't they get Cotto to do it? Why couldn't they get Lucas/Peterson? Why is Canelo the only big name fighter to appear on Floyd's undercards?


It's like talking to a wall. Here you are defending Canelo and yet your talking about Floyd taking joke fights?? Talk about hypocrisy.

That's the problem with boxing fans these days, they don't want to see people earn big fights. Again, who has Canelo fought (top ten in his weight class or p4p) that warrants him asking for a mayweather fight? Cause you keep posting but you don't answer the question.
