Rumor: Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Paul Spadafora in Discussions
 

 

Floyd Mayweather Jr vs Paul Spadafora in Discussions
By Steve Kim, MaxBoxing (March 25, 2011) Special to Doghouse Boxing

A couple of sources told me on Thursday afternoon that there are discussions involving a bout between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Paul Spadafora for the summer and that HBO would give its blessing because, quite frankly, they have no other choice.

What’s not clear is just how Mayweather’s legal status plays into all this.

Folks on the “Spaddy” side believe that there is a great chance this f!ght will become a reality. As for Mayweather, who the hell knows?

Update....

Mayweather vs Spadafora: The Pittsburgh Kid is Ready

By Rick Reeno

Michael Acri, promoter of unbeaten junior welterweight/welterweight contender Paul "Pittsburgh Kid" Spadafora (45-0, 19KOs), spoke to BoxingScene.com regarding the industry rumors that his f!ghter is in line for a possible summer showdown with Floyd Mayweather Jr. (41-0, 25KOs). According to Acri, there have been a few discussions for a potential Mayweather-Spadafora clash in the month of July.

Acri was approached by promoter Don King, and a few others who are connected to Mayweather. The history between Mayweather and Spadafora dates back to ten years ago, when they clashed in a Las Vegas gym. The infamous sparring session was captured on video and widely circulated all over the internet. Spadafora got the better of Mayweather in their gym collision. Floyd has always maintained that he wasn't in shape when the sparring session took place, while Spadafora was actively training for a scheduled f!ght.

"I was approached about the f!ght. I spoke with Don and a few other people [connected to Mayweather]. Paul is interested in the f!ght. He's wanted this f!ght for a very long time. Paul is ready to finish what he started ten years ago. We'll see what happens," Acri told BoxingScene.com.

Mayweather has yet to overcome several pending legal matters in the city of Las Vegas. Any potential f!ght, Spadafora or otherwise, is resting on the outcome of Mayweather's courtroom drama.

 Mayweather vs Spadafora: The Pittsburgh Kid is Ready - Boxing News

Mayweather vs. Spadafora in July?

March 25th, 2011

By Daniel Echevarria: Hey f!ght Fans news is circulating like wild fire about a possible f!ght between “The Scientist” Floyd “Money” Mayweather and unbeaten “The Pittsburgh Kid” Paul Spadafora. The history of these two f!ghters dates back ten years ago when they clashed in a Las Vegas Gym in which video was captured that can be found on YOUTUBE which many say Spadafora got the best of Mayweather which Floyd claims he wasn’t in shape at the time.

Michael Acri promoter of Paul Spadafora has gone on record saying he has been approached by Don King and others connected to Mayweather for a possible f!ght in July and Paul is interested in finishing what he started ten years ago. f!ght Fans this is obviously a tune up f!ght let’s not play dumb here OK but check out the video of the f!ght on YOUTUBE and here is some info on “The Pittsburgh Kid” Paul Spadafora – Known as “The Pittsburgh Kid”, Spadafora hails from a borough outside of Pittsburgh named McKees Rocks.Spadafora had a fruitful amateur career, winning 75 of 80 bouts. His dreams of becoming a professional boxer were almost dashed before he turned professional:

According to the official reports, Spadafora was traveling in a car that was driven by a friend. When his friend began to go over the speed limit, he was chased by a cop. Since the driver refused to stop, the cop fired a shot, hitting Spadafora in the achilles’ tendon . On October 18, 1995, Spadafora made his professional debut, winning a four round knockout of Steve Maddux. He won a total of four f!ghts in his initial year.In 1996, he fought eight times, winning all, six by knockout. In 1997, he fought six times, but his percentage of knockout wins dropped considerably when he only won two of those six bouts by knockout.In 1998, he continued his winning ways throughout the year, winning all six bouts, three by knockout. One of the aforementioned KO’s took place on the exhibition bout card, featuring long retired veteran Dan Maloney and Tim Witherspoon.

He began 1999 by raising his quality of opposition, facing the veteran Rocky Martinez. He won that f!ght by a unanimous decision, and after one more win he and Israel Cardona met in Chester for the I.B.F.’s vacant world crown on August 20. An underdog in the betting lines, Spadafora nevertheless became world champion, defeating Cardona in a 12 round decision. Then he retained the title with an 11 round knockout of Renato Cornett to finish the year.He opened 2000 with a 12 round decision over Victoriano Sosa to retain the title, and subsequently defended his title again by knockout over Mike Griffith in round 11, and beat Billy Irwin in a 12 round decision to close the year. By 2001, Spadafora was already a regular on the HBO Boxing television show. He retained the title with a 12 round decision over Joel Perez and won one non-title f!ght that year.

He began 2002 by retaining his title over Angel Manfredy with a 12 round decision. His only other bout that year was a 12 round decision win over Dennis Holbaek, also with his world title on the line.

In 2003, Spadafora and WBA world champion Leonard Dorin decided to meet to try to unify their world titles. They met on May 18, but the f!ght was declared a draw (tie), both boxers remaining as world champions in their respective organizations.

floyd spars with multiple people during his sparring sessions

you and whoever was hyped off this vid just had empty hopes

Floyd has never looked gassed in a f!ght, I would love for you to show me a situation where he did. You are making absolutely no sense right now.

LOL this is a joke. But it kind of makes sense in a way. I remember this radio host I listened to late night sports talk while doing security said, "the job of the promoters of these boxers is put someone in the ring that your f!ghter can beat" so it's not only Floyd dodging Pacman, his people don't have the confidence that he can beat him, and I think he could. But if this leads up to him f!ghting Pacman, then I am all for it, he has not had a f!ght since he fought Shane Mosely, hopefully this could be a warm up f!ght before he f!ghts Pacman.

On top of the fact that Paul is washed the f**k up, NO ONE knows who this guy is outside of boxing fans(Hell, he's unknown to alot of boxing fans also)

this makes no business sense at all. Atleast f!ght berto or something
