As I was readin' an article on boxingscene.com (http://www.boxingscene.com/floyd-mayweather-jr-says-ill-fight-five-more-times--51067), I was stunned when I read a quote from Mayweather, which says... "Safe to say, probably -- this one [with Cotto], plus five more. And of course, I'm probably not looking to fight six strong champions," Mayweather told David Mayo of the Grand Rapids Press. "I'm a lot older now, you know what I'm saying?"


The bold part caught me off-guard. I understand Mayweather's all about self-preservation, but that quote just makes him seem like a cherry-picker. In other words, he gave all of his haters a lot of ammo to work with. With that bein' said, how reliable is boxingscene.com? Could that be a mis-quote?

I want to hear the interview. Could of been taken out of context. From what we know about Floyd, unless he plans on taking a pay cut, hes going to fight the top guys. We all know how Floyd likes to set PPV records and likes big garunteed purses. You cant make that kind of money fighting Joe Boxer.

I got to call bullshit on that. Definitely not something he would say. Check out this article for example http://www.mlive.com/mayweather/index.ssf/...mp_through.html

even though I think he is one, I doubt he said that in an interview

i swear that writer is retarded, stating that Mayweather's next opponent maybe Martinez(which is fine) or Andre Ward...

Who knows...he could've possibly said it. I mean shit, he aired a sparring session for the whole world to see...something that he usually doesn't do.

Here's the interview. http://www.mlive.com/mayweather/index.ssf/...manny_pacq.html

This is basically a he said she said situation, but let's try to be objective.

There's a section where the writer starts talking about whether public perception has "tilted in his favor" which leads into the quote that B.S. pounced on. To be objective the quote is definitely from the David Mayo article, but to me it follows on from the discussion re. public perception and I think that it was taken out of context. Out of context bcause I think that Floyd was talking about public perception i.e. Mayweather cherry picks etc. so the haters will say "and of course I'm probably not looking..."
Not attacking the writer, but it was a pretty disjointed interview.

Anyway, b.s will run with it as will a lot of people, but actions speak louder than words and so far Mayweather's actions in the ring have spoken loudly enough.
