Please do not make me have a nightmare tonight. I rather see Cory Spinks and K9 fight again!
Yeah man, that Forbes/Vargas fight was trash. Stevie looked like he had on black church socks and no boots...I think that's what annoyed me the most.

Undercard might not shape up they way I hoped
Issue with Alvarez-Trout is, from what I'm told, Floyd's unwillingness to commit contractually to an Alvarez fight in the fall (more)
From what I'm told, Floyd has a tough fight in front of him w/ Guerrero. That's his focus. So if he wont sign for a fall Canelo fight (more)
So Canelo could wind up facing Trout (or somebody else) May 4 without the guarantee Floyd is next or he could go on his own show in June.
From what I'm told, Canelo is fine to fight Trout or whomever GB wants to make, but not on Floyd's card w/out guarantee of a Floyd fight
Canelo unsure he wants to be on Floyd's undercard, bringing attention & $$ to show but minus guarantee he gets Floyd, which is what he wants
What did I tell you guys??? WHAT did I tell you guys? Floyd aint gonna commit to anything until after May 4th. No fighter in their right mind should have another opponent set in stone, before he beats the guy in front of him.
Canelo fighting Trout just seemed a bit too good to be true. Regardless of what they say about Canelo being willing to fight Trout if a Floyd fight was signed for September, even GBP knows that Trout is an obstacle.
Again, I see Canelo fighting Angulo or Molina, then fighting Cotto in the fall. I see Floyd fighting Guerrero in May, then the winner of Brook/Alexander...which WILL BE Brook.

i'm sure floyd will be paying a lot of these guys out of pocket...which is a good thing for his camp. spread the wealth.
Well he didn't have to pay Lattimore or Vargas much last May...I believe that both of them made under $100k. I know that Lattimore made between 50k and 80k. That's chump change to Floyd, so yeah, he could pay guys that much and we could get some dull fights. I must admit, Quintana/Lattimore went exactly how I called it though.
