How does Golden Boy solve the, dare I say, Roach question? LOL. I mean, if they're going to fight for a chance at the Money May sweepstakes, GBP has to...I REPEAT: HAS TO implement random blood & urine testing for this tourney. As both trainer to Pac & Khan, Roach is in a baaaad position should Amir take these tests w/ no hesitation and Pac still stumbling out of the gate about it.
Like everyone on this thread, I think it is a marvelous idea and would love to see it (HBO would get my $$$$ quickly). However, I think the "politics" would prevent Khan from getting in. Plus, as Cshel already pointed out, Khan is probably the front-runner and I doubt GBP would risk him against Maidana (again) and DEFINITELY NOT Mathysse (sp).
Yeah that would be ugly if Khan waved his hand so galantly to take the test and Pac didn't, BUT, as we all know, Pacquiao has more leverage than Khan, and Khan needs the fight a bit more urgently than Pac does. I still believe that Khan will do his best to blow past these dudes, and surely he will only have to fight two of them anyway. You're right, GBP wont risk Khan by putting him back in there with Maidana, since he almost pulled a game-blower against him a year ago. Think about it, who would bring more money to GBP?...Khan fighting Mayweather or Maidana fighting Mayweather?
Besides, I dont believe Khan came this far just to find himself in there with Maidana again and risk fucking it all up. Im sure GBP doesn't want to risk that either...and Im sure they already have picked their favorite of the 4...though they are all great fighters. In my opinion, Matthysse would be somewhat of waste to throw in the tournament. He starts off too slow and decides to pick it up in the middle rounds...just to leave the last 2-3 rounds in the air, no deal. Maidana is the "go-getter" between the two of them, though Matthysse's style is cleaner...the early bird catches the worm, meaning Maidana swings for the fences from the opening bell all the way to the final bell, dog-tired and sloppy or not.

I am not spending another dollar on a Mayweather or a Pac fight. Fuck the greedy fucks and there promoters. There no reasons they canít make that fight happen. I am a diehard Mayweather fan but i am tired of all the bullshit and lies from both sides. There wrecking the sport of boxing. Both of their legacies are tainted. Pacmans fighting retirees and Mayweather wants to take 2 yrs. off after every fight to spend all the money he swindled us out of. Time to put up or retire. The sports better off without the both of them. Bob Arum needs to do us all a favor and drop dead already. Do yourself a favor keep your money? I went to see Berto vs. Ortiz live and that was the best fight i have seen in a long time.
Your rant is actually a healthy one, so I'll leave you alone. I somewhat agree, May and Pac are fucking the sport up nicely, if that makes sense
They are keeping it relevant, but people's anxiety will only be calm for so long. Oh well, Im sure good promotion has gotten the best of us all. Hell, I've watched EVERY one of their fights since the negotiations began 2 years ago. I've also been watching NEARLY every other fight since then, just to keep my sanity in check.

The Rodriguez/Rosinsky fight was excellent, sans the unbelievable 100-90 acid-dropping UD scoring by the ringside Helen Kellers!!!
I saw that bullshit score too. I watched it with no volume and still didn't see a complete shut out. Was the fight actually
last night, or was I watching a re-run of it?

This is a great idea I see Ortiz winning though
Amere Con beats Ortiz I'll be shocked. Great idea though
Maybe add Wladimir an we got no excuses at the end.
Maybe add Wladimir and we got no excuses at the end? Bhahahah! Ken, what tha fuck man? Lmao!
Oh yeah, Ortiz winning it all is likely, but I believe he's gonna crap out when he gets to Khan or Maidana. Its not about what Khan's gonna do to him, but its about he's not gonna know how to do when he fights Khan. I hope fighting Mayweather actually helped him out, but Ortiz doesn't retain well, so we will see. He has to make a complete ass of himself and the world has to kick him while he's down...just to make him fight better. Just think, the Maidana fight would've ended on that bad cut of his and he would've won the fight, but nooooo, Ortiz was too quick to give up, so he screwed himself.
If that fight would've been stopped on a cut, he would've had a chance to redeem himself later on...whenever HE was ready to fight Maidana, and things would've been great. Hell, I had him stealing the 4th round against Floyd, but what did he do?...he got frustrated and blew the game, smh. Maidana is still rocking back and forth in his recliner...in the middle of Ortiz's brain
