Money May vs. Guerrero!

What are your unofficial predcitions?

I think Guerrero will try to make it as rough and ugly as possible, but he will eventually fall behind - as everyone - and allow Floyd to capitalize on his mistakes. I don't think The Ghost will break down though. He seems to be very strong-willed so I expect him to fight for the whole 3 minutes of every round. Floyd might get hit early on before he adjusts as he did in the Judah fight. I don't see a KO though. Floyd ain't gonna leave his throne just yet.

I expect Floyd to be defensively minded and picking his shots while frustrating Guerrero with defense on the ropes as I think Robert will try to bully him there.

All in all...I feel the same way as I always do when Floyd announces his opponent - unsure. Hell, I was worried that JMM will get him biggrin.gif Not gonna happen though...

Well its all over boxingscene. It's official and on top of the guerrero news he has signed a huge deal with showtime which if it doesn't make him the if not one of the richest athletes alive he might become the highest grossing boxer ever (if his ppv pace keeps up)

Thoughts, predictions, hate, pour it out.

Maybe this took so long. I hope everyone is happy. A six fight deal? Which means he will be fighting until either 38 or 39. 2 fights a year. How much money is he getting? Someone from HBO is beyond pissed. LOL

He will fight 6 times within the next 30 months. He better stay far away from all the pussy thats around him. I'm hypothesizing that he's probably guaranteed $300M for this deal (50M/fight) NOT including his cut of the PPV. "MONEY" never seemed so suiting to go before Mayweather at this point.

Who the hell will he fight in 6 fights? The givens are Robert Guerrero and Alvarez vs. Trout winner.

He'll probably fight the winner of Alexander Brook. MAYBE K9 if he beats Smith as well. But i cant think of any other 3 guaranteed possible opponents he can fight within the next 30 months besides Brook/Alexander winner, Trout/Alvarez winner, and Guerrero..

Who thinks that 0 will go?

They're sick yes, but they won't really be sick until they realize Broner is fighting on SHOWTIME too under Floyd's undercards lmaoo

This is great for boxing because CBS and there networks arre going to promote BOXING extensively im sure. This is bigger than Floyd's agenda.

Don't quote me on this but I believe they said it was a 30 month deal. 2 fights a year or so..?

aTYpicalTYrant
Bout time we no longer have to speculate (though we really weren't for the most part) on who he's fighting. This Showrime deal is one hell of a surprise! I know the HBO folks are hotter than fish grease right now!

Side Note: If Floyd is fighting on Showtime does that mean Broner "can't" be on the card? I'm very curious about everyone that will be fighting that night.

Let the rumors that he is going broke and this is why he needs to fight six more times.

Six fights he maybe getting

1. Robert
2. Alvarez/Trout winnter
3. Pacquiao (trust me)
4. Alexander/Brooks winner
5. Sergio Martinez at 154
6. Bradley (Arum is tired of this guy so he will be happily to cash him out.

I do not say K9 getting a fight because he has no name so let the Mayweather sweepstakes begin.

CShels now wasn't this worth the wait? He was having a bidding war between HBO and Showtime. And Showtime won, I know HBO has to be somewhat peeved. Someone is getting fired. lol. Well played Team Haymon and Mayweather. Roger Mayweather please get better!

Jack you know why I am mostly happy? I don't have to hear Kellerman for the next 30 months with his bitch monotone voice trying to sound smart and daring. Cursing does not give you street cred! Not only that but those glasses that Lampley wears I don't have see. HBO just lost a big fish. See what happens when you don't back your main gun, he leaves. Just like not treating your lady to the very best, she finds a dude that will treat her right and sex how she likes it.

Showtime big ups! Welp Broner will be the next to go to showtime. HBO has no one! LOL Homeless Boxing Office!

I can give two piles of rat shit about the opponent here...but that Showtime deal though...

I've been saying this all along that HBO is going to get what's coming to them, for having their noses so high in the air about "landing" the "greatest fight that never happened". Showtime's got the juice now.

Pacquiao can still fight on HBO PPV and bring in lots of money, so they haven't completely lost here. The sad thing is, GBP and Mayweather work together, so not only will we be seeing these quadruple-headers on Showtime, but they're PPV numbers are sure to rise now. Hell, what was the last Showtime PPV??? Cotto/Mayorga back in 2011?! Hell, that's the last on that I ordered...help me out here.

Let's be real here...Floyd aint fighting 6 more times, regardless of what's being reported. HBO will still have some pretty good cards being aired, but this was one of the signs of the apocalypse for them.

Not only did they NOT get the megafight, they've sure as shit lost one of the fighters for that same fight. So, if it ever happens, it's going to be on Showtime...good...that serves HBO right. So everybody from the back to the front, janitor, mail courier, camera man, etc. better have a diaper on, because this is looking bad.

Now, had only Lou DiBella still been the matchmaker for HBO...hmm....

Honestly, not much has changed here, it's not like Floyd fights often anyway. I'll still watch B.A.D. and Championship Boxing like none of this ever happened. Besides, that's what we all watch in between the big PPV fights anyway.

Oh HBO, good luck on your huge PPV numbers...better hope Arum doesn't decide to do something crazy too.

What's makes it worse for HBO is half of those fighters you mentioned (Pacquaio, Bradley, Martinez) are HBO fighters lmao. AND on BoxRec.com it says Broner (HBO fighter) is fighting on May 4 at the MGM Grand. Lampley and Kellerman just need to retire.. I will miss HBO 24/7's narrator and Andre Ward's/Roy Jones's commentary however. If your list comes into fruition (WHICH I HOPE IT DOES) I better never hear the names Maywearher, Margarito, and Paul Williams spoken in the same breath again

OMG...this Floyd Mayweather Jr. guy Is The Shit...much smarter than I thought...and that is coming from someone who thought of Floyd as an astute business man, and a ruler of his own corner of the boxing ecosystem. Good and promising, career-enhancing exposure for his up and coming fighters, too. And some keep wondering why all these news/threads about Floyd? He is The Show! Haters in any form be damned. And, to cap it off, I firstly, actually and genuinely love his fighting style to boot. HBO can move on all they want. P34c3

But what's crazy is Floyd gave a hint line 2 years ago on fighthype I think. He said he's working on the biggest fight deal in history. And he did it. This is great for boxing because it now will get exposure on network television and draw more fans.

But still consider that Floyd is not getting any younger, if he were to lose, what would happen to the conditions of the contract? Remember, it's says "Up to six times, not that Floyd will be fighting six times." It is doubtful that Floyd would fight more often than once to twice a year, even under the new deal and network.

But in other news Mickey Bey failed his drug test. Boxing could never have a pure moment without something or someone tarnishing the purity https://twitter.com/danrafaelespn/status/303952794761715712
The Original MrFactor
I wonder if the fine print states that he gets to exclusively pick his opponents. If something like this is in the contract,then it's 6 exhibitions against carefully selected opponents. Glad to see Guerrero get his shot. Hope he makes the most of it. Wonder if he got his 4 mill?
Marcus
Check this out:
http://sports.yahoo.com/news/boxing--money...-183025721.html

"Floyd could beat any of them guys, from 140 to 147 and from 154 to 160," Ellerbe said. "I didn't say he was fighting at [middleweight], just that he could beat all them guys in those weights. We'll see what he chooses to do."
-Leonard Ellerbe

According to this article Canelo-Trout is also still up in the air. Looks like Canelo pulled a Mayweather claiming to face a fighter just to stir things up.

showtime is the home of the upset. mayweather/guerrero has upset written all over it. the 6 fight deal has a strong possibility to go right down the toilet....and i don't believe hbo will be totally out the picture. i do believe that this will change the current landscape of boxing...which imo, is a good thing. no more ppv's....no more trying to force feed us over paid/under challenged fighters. new stars will emerge...and hopefully hbo will realize that trying to force feed us manufactured stars is not the way. showtime will continue to grow.

Idk about that upset thing, Canelo, matthysse, mares have all fought there and came out spotless.

But it is very possible Floyd can lose. Theirs no telling how he will look after a layoff this late in his career and after a jail stint.

And hopefully everything you said about manufactured fighters gets toned down at the very least.

yeah...they guys you named won their fights...but i can point to plenty of upsets. showtime has always been more inclined to put on quality matches rather than showcase bouts...so it's more likely to happen there.

i think trout is going to beat canelo.

guerrero at the very least is going to make floyd look really bad. i won't be shocked if he drops floyd...or even upsets him.
mgrover
I don't mean to sound like am out of a Rocky movie, but Guerrero seems to bring something to the table most of his recent opponents aside from Cotto hasn't, and that's hunger. Guerrero seems to believe his own fantasy that he will be champion that day, I guess believing anything otherwise with an opponent like Mayweather is pointless.

Professor usually I agree with most of the things that you say but this one I can not go with you on. Guerrero at best is the poor man's Castillo. He is not going to rough house Floyd like he did Berto and unlike Berto, he will be dealing with the original Shoulder Roll. Not a BS imitation. Guerrero gets hit way too often and he does not have a power punch. This should be an interesting fight but my money is on Money! And what a hell of a deal that he inked with showtime. Someone at HBO is about to get fired!

The only one time in my life that i questioned if mayweather was going to win a fight was when he got cracked by mosely in that second round. Crazy feeling, i didn't know what was going to happen after that. But to my surprise, he showed me how to come back and adjust after getting hit (Pacquiao shot)..After that i can't question his moves, i only try to analyze. Mayweather makes careful moves in the ring as he does in his career, he takes like 1-2% more hits now but he still ends up on top.

Sucks that my college dorm only has HBO and no Showtime :\

6 fights?! Sounds too good to be true;

1.Guerrero
2. Canelo, no matter if he wins his next fight or not. may not be right after the loss, but probably after the comback. so 2 or 3.
3. Devon Alexander, Slick south paw i think he will fight want to fight before pacquiao.
4. Pacquiao, No way the fight cant happen. Mayweather easily takes this
5. Sergio or Amir Khan/Brook
6. Bradley, easyyyy

I think Trout beats Canelo, but i still dont think he gets a Mayweather fight after that, or mayweather just wont move up to face him. If Trout were to beat Sergio too then maybe i see him getting a shot at Mayweather.

I wonder how Manny feels about Floyd making groundbreaking move after groundbreaking move, while Arum tells him what he's going to do. The world loves Manny, but he's just in a bad spot right now...well, it's been like that for a while. Regardless of how much the world hates Floyd...dude is handling his business and breaking records. The only groundbreaking thing that Manny's manged to do as of late, is get laid out.

It seems like any type of resistance on his part, to change Arum's mind about his next move/fight, gets scoffed at and done anyway. It's looking bad for him, and moves like this on Mayweather's end, make him (FMJ) look, well...like he was right all along. no2.gif

PS: I hate it for Guerrero (press-wise), because this news is pretty much a bigger deal than the upcoming fight itself. Maybe it's a good thing, maybe he doesn't want all of the extra attention that he's going to get some of anyway...that makes for a clear mind on his part..you know, stay under the radar, and pull off the upset.

Floyd's fights will always be PPV. However, maybe HBO can learn from this and look for new exciting fighters evenly matched with other exciting fighters to breathe new talent into the network, instead of trying to "Build a star against C-grade opposition."

original shoulder roll? haha cmon man - mayweather isnt the first to shoulder roll!

i'm giving guerrero more of a chance than you. i think his best assets are his chin and heart for this fight. i believe his straight could be dangerous too.i agree with ya though that guerrero won't be able to replicate the berto fight. we're both on the same page as far as who we think comes out the winner too lol just sayin, i think Guerrero isn't to be scoffed at

I think Mayweather-Gurrero is gonna be like Mayweather-Hatton. It will be a Nevada ref who won't like Guerrero fight inside often enough to do his thing. The ref won't show the favorable bias to Mayweather like Cortez did in the Hatton fight, (although even I was annoyed with Hatton holding.) For Guerrero to win against Floyd, it's almost gotta be in California with a California ref who will let Robert do whatever he wants. No such luck in Nevada. However, It will be Floyd's toughest fight since Castillo I and I'll say 116-112 for Floyd on all cards.

Floyd Mayweather , layoff of not, is no Berto. Floyd's too smart and skilled, especially with Vegas officials seeing things his way in terms of any close rounds or what Floyd can do to an opponent.

Jack
BigFightFan
I think this fight will be more like FMJR vs Oscar DeLahoya, with Floyd winning a close unanimous or split decision. Not that I think highly of the Ghost, but Mayweather has to prove he has gas left in the tank.

As far as the deal, I think it opens the doors for other fighters to get paid in the future. If I was Bronner I would ask HBO to open up the check book and pull out the pen with a lot of ink. I doubt HBO will let another potential star flee to Showtime. The flip side is maybe HBO figured his run was coming to an end and decided not to match or exceed show times offer.

I'm gonna sing like Alicia Keys "This thread is on fire" lol

^totally agree except i think guerrero is being miscast. he brings more to the table than hatton or castillo did in my opinion in that guerrero is versatile. he fights in more ways than one

When I heard about this showtime deal, it reminded me of a special moment in my life. I remember shell toes had made a come back n all my cousins N friends had the white n black ones. I finally convinced my mom to get me a pair only to find out they were sold out. So i ended up with some. Whte n Teal joints. When my ppls saw em, it was like I discovered gold. They were in awe. I felt like I had the biggest dick in the world.

Floyd just copped the teal Adidas lol! He just shat on the titan of boxing lol. Who in the hell at HBO let that shit happen? You wanna talk about fired?You lose Floyd right after the worst moment in Mannys careee? Does this mean Canelo is going the Showtime route too? Hbo just got buttfucked, chapped with no lube lol. Im sure they will rebound but man... Lampleys 3D glasses have to be going crazy. We get to see a Mayweather fight and actually hear non biased, knowledgeable commentary. Thank you!

As for the fight...I expect it to be ugly. I expect Guerrero to hug and hit all night. I expect cuts and point deductions,

In your world what would you want Floyd to do to satisfy your high ass standards? Man... He inked a 6 fight deal within 30 months, what more can you want? Come on Chsels come on,

original shoulder roll? haha cmon man - mayweather isnt the first to shoulder roll!

i'm giving guerrero more of a chance than you. i think his best assets are his chin and heart for this fight. i believe his straight could be dangerous too.i agree with ya though that guerrero won't be able to replicate the berto fight. we're both on the same page as far as who we think comes out the winner too lol just sayin, i think Guerrero isn't to be scoffed at


I didn't mean original like he invented the technique, I have no idea who actually first used it but I meant instead of getting Berto's half ass Mayweather shoulder roll he is going to get the original one. I should of clarified it. My bad bro.

I think this fight like I mentioned before will be like Castillo, I just do not think Guerrero has the chin of Castillo or honestly the skill. But shit this is boxing so anything and I mean anything can happen. Floyd has never beaten a half Mexican before so we shall see!
