"He needs to fight God"?
"He's got to fight two people in one night"?
"He needs to fight two people alternating between rounds"??
Nope. Not at all for me. Just fight the true peeps I always wanted to see him fight - Margs, Mosely...Paul Williams is a welter...Im fine w Cotto too. What I refuse to lend credibility to is fights w Gatti, Baldomir. And this whole weight thing w Marquez, I mean, that's garbage.
All that said, Floyd may very well beat the first group of guys I mentioned, and that's awesome. THAT's what I want to see. I just want to see him in there with the best of class...HIS class. Closest he came was DLH, who I thought he drew with...and Castillo gave him a tough one first go round, but Floyd made good on the rematch.
As for the PPV numbers, I have absolutely nothing to hate on there. Im actually kind of pumped that my sport doubled or tripled UFC, especially after all the shit we've been hearing about UFC.
That said, yu give other fighters as many 24/7's as Mayweather has been the B side of, and its all bound to gain traction. These guys should do 24/7's for all the big PPV fights. If t cost $1M to make, the two fighters should each concede $500K to get the million to produce the 24/7, and then split a bigger % of the PPV, which could likely be more lucrative than the $500K they gave up.
I ain't hating on your boy's PPV success this time around, Marz. Im glad they did what they did. I think Marquez plays a part in this too, no?
Anyway, this is good for boxing. I dont like how Mayweather pulled this bamboozle w the weight crap, but whatever. I wasn't hinging my star to this match up anyway.
I want to see Maoselyy Mayweather. Paq stands a snowballs chance in hell. I guess I wouldn't mind seeing Roach and Paq humbled, but as much as I think Roach is getting a big head, I don't think we need the Mayweathers ganging up on his Parkinson's.
