Yes? No? I don't know anymore, what does Love have? Charged with PEDs and a controversial win? And Smith he beat the weakest champ, sure cry all you want that you won the belt, but till your undisputed you ain't shit. No offence to Mayweather stable, but when he retires, it's going to be harder getting them boys on high exposure cards.
i respect floyd and oscars accomplishments as boxers....and i commend them both for turning to promoting....but developing real talent...that is not something easily done.
gbp has mares...he's their first guy they took from zero bouts to a championship. but let's be honest about it...he's had some help along the way with questionable calls/no calls (agbeko, darchinyan, moreno) and i don't believe he's going to be up top for very long. canelo...they kind of inherited. he had plenty of experience when they signed him.
as for mayweathers guys...smith got his shot and won against k-9...but i'm not sure he's going to be there long either. i think he's losing to molina. love, i thought, was matched tough...and they tried to step him up to quick. he's not gonna make it anytime soon. plus with the positive testing...they may drop him from the roster. who knows?
something to consider: both floyd and oscar have massive egos. do you think they are the type to create fighters that would outshine their own accomplishments? oscar and floyd both have gone on record as saying they don't want to baby their fighters and will match them tough, but truth be told, both of them got to the positions they were/are in because of favorable match making by bob arum. i don't expect them to return the favor to any of their fighters anytime soon. maybe when they're much more mature men and realize that they stand to benefit by doing so. until then....i won't hold my breath waiting for that to happen.
