dudes a f*g...dipping out of f!ghts giving lame a.ss excuses. Hatton would but his punk a.ss to a pulp
You sir, are officially a d*ckhead.

He would beat Hatton the same way he beat Baldomir...probably worse.

im half and half with floyd's decision....from a fans perspective we feel as if we are being cheated, how can he retire at 27, hopefully he wont turn to rap or any other embarassing acts. It would be like lebron retiring right now. But i do think there is too much money for mayweather to just walk away. for someone who claims they love the sport so much, you can't simply walk away, jus look at the legends who loved their sport (Jordan, mario lemieux) they eventually came back.....but on the other hand floyd is f!ghting in a weightclass where no one can beat him. He is the youngest f!ghter WITH talent in the welterweights...no disrespect to oscar or sugar shane but u guys are gettin on in years and arent as quick or hungry as they were when they were 27. Zabs end was proven when BALDOMIR beat him, when i saw baldomir f!ght floyd it was like someone gave baldomir 3 shots of 151, blind folded him and put weights in his gloves. Floyd is just causing a reason for oscar to f!ght him and building the media up

Oh yeah...fu*k LARRY MERCHANT, HE DESERVED THAT sh*t. Everybody gassed Baldomir up like he was going to do something and he COULD'NT DO sh*t. Then they turn around and act as if their dissapointed in Mayweather? He did what he had to do, he's not going to stand there and let a Muthafu*ka beat on him. He frustrated that big dumb slow muthafu*ka, Mayweather hitting him three times for everytime Baldomir throws one punch. Mayweather is a BOXER, not a UFC f!ghter.

Please no more hype about ricky hatton either, guy is NOT a boxer jus some guy the put in the ring who rushes you and throws punches (similar to a child) floyd would DESTROY HIM...i repeat DESTROY HIM, the worst thing u can do to a f!ghter like floyd is rush him with ur head down

The bottom line of this is that the people claiming that Floyd a f*g and a bum just dont like is ego. In boxing you have to have an ego. You have to think your the best or you will get beaten. Floyd fought the f!ght he had too to win and not only that he didnt lose a round. Normally in boxing you lose rounds when all you do is run and the other person is always coming foward. So in those rounds he had to be doing something other then running. He's dominated the f!ght. I like Winky Wright but what has he really done to be considered in the same class as Floyd. Everyone saying Floyd needs to f!ght a legend to be one, but name a legend still boxing today. Floyd is the closest thing to a legend and in my book is one. If Floyd did f!ght Oscar and dominated him the same people hating on him for duckin f!ghts will just flip the script and say how Floyd bet an Oscar who is at the decline of his career. To me it just sounds like most of you are haters on Floyd and like at who's in boxing now, Floyd is clearly the best. I wish there were legends for him to beat up on but there not. Im suprised most of you haters arent yelling for him to jump up to heavyweight and try and knock people out there just because anyone close to his size is clearly outmatched. You dont need to be classy to be a legend. Take Ali for example. Deffinately a legend and deffinatly arrogant.

Now, I give Mayweather all the credit in the world. The man has talent. He is definitely a talented f!ghter. My one problem is whether he is a hall of famer. The man has fought no one. The last f!ght that was even close to being anticipated, was the f!ght againt Corrales. The man has fought no names and has beens. Gatti was done way before he fought Floyd. To top it all off, the man has no real power. He has moved up and with that, his power has disappeared. He is a good f!ghter that has come around at a bad time for his weight class. There is no one to f!ght him. It is not about him being to great to be beat, it is just that there is no other great f!ghters for him to f!ght. Does that really make him great? I am talking about Suger, Hearns and Haggler. I am talking about Ali, Liston, Foreman, Frazier. Those f!ghts and f!ghters made every man involved a legend, what f!ght has Floyd had? I would put Marco Antonio Barrea in way before I put Floyd.

n*gga please, he did the right thing by snappin on merchant's racist a.ss. he always talkin sh*t and hopes that a boxer will whoop mayweather's a.ss, but it ain't happenin. then u got emmanual stewart talkin sh*t too so he could talk up a f!ght with his boxer when he already know that floyd will whoop that a.ss.
larry had that coming for a long time. i always wanted bernard to snap on him. larry sh*tted on him all of his career pretty much.

fu*k mayweather for dissing larry merchant.
Its true Larry Merchant dont know sh*t about boxing and this isnt the 1st time a boxer has told him that. All his questions are stupid, and he needs to get a day job, cause he cant do the one with HBO. Merchant doest have an athletic bone in his body, yet he talks as if he is a ring veteran.

Floyd doesn't have to beat legends, but he does have to beat the best that his generation has to offer. Even if he is far more superior, he still has to show and tell, not just tell. Floyd has talked trash about pretty much every f!ghter out there, and proclaimed himself the greatest f!ghter of all time, but he hasn't fought the guys he is talking trash about. He is a magnificant boxer, but LEGENDS don't just dismiss other f!ghters, they f!ght them. Mayweather needs top tier oppenents on his resume to be considered a true legend. There are too many legitimate f!ghts available for him to just walk away, as if he has proven that he is what he claims to be. For a guy with so much talent and so big an ego, I would think that he would go out and quiet everyone who doubts his place in history, really put his stamp on the sport, and build his legacy. Don't get me wrong, I respect Floyd as a boxer, and I love it when a guy talks trash and backs it up, but it's like the old saying, "to talk the talk, you have the walk the walk". Unfortunatley, as gifted as Floyd Mayweather is, he has done more "talking" than "walking".

Its funny cuz everyone said the same sh*t about roy jones, then he listened to everyone and went up to heavyweight and light heavy and started gettin knocked out cuz he let people get to him Floyd has nowhere else to go, hes too small to move up, and if he moves back down, he will just smash everyone, he has no where else to go in boxing, he has a mouth just like Ali had a mouth, if someone dont say they the greatest then who will? n*gga has every right to say he the best look at his record and how he f!ghts, hes levels ahead of everyone in skill, but nah yall n*ggas want him to move up out of his weightclass and get spanked and then talk about how sorry he is like yall did roy, i remember the old gatti vs. maywheather thread on here and n*ggas was talkin bout how gatti was gonna punish him, look what he did to that bumb Leave the boy alone and face the fact that hes great, n*gga is c*cky as sh*t and I dont even like him, but I aint gonna hate on the n*gga like yall and not admit that he is a great f!ghter If Ali was in his prime today and was doin what he did back in the day, some n*ggas on here would say he suck, cuz u just wanna hate k!ll yourselves

aint that the guy that fought a throw-in f!ghter in the ndercard?? he couldnt even knock out that guy, it was terrible f!ght i felt bad for the guy...paul was treating him like a punchin bag & still couldnt put him out...anybody else see that??

yeah man, i saw that sh*t. that little mexican cat probably went to sleep that night and died cause of how many blows he took to the dome. paul the punisher is real though, ive seeen that cat knock cats silly. he'll be a champion in due time, but better than mayweather? obviously, as laughable as it sounds


anyways, fu*k whoever defended merchant, i hate that f*g. mayweather wanted to pop that coksucker and should have

mayweather is undefeated and sucks? that had to be racist white people that say that ignorant sh*t. u can't be a legend till u beat one? this aint rocky fool. he has beat people, hes got like 6 fu*king belts. and he is moving up weight class. yeah he is picking choosing what bigger cats he f!ghts, but who the fu*k wouldnt. this baldomir cat weighed 35lbs more than him before the f!ght. let me u see one of u cats f!ght a dude 40lbs bigger than u with professional hands. not to mention he dominated 2 decent fighers

watch boxing for real..........?man first off corrales has a glass chin secondly arturro gatti is at best an average f!ghter who has above average heart and baldomir is'nt even in the same league until mayweather takes a f!ght with someone relevant in the division he will never get the credit he deserves look at oscar de la hoya he didnt start getting any credit until he started taking f!ghts he could actually lose.....im not taking anything away from mayweather i think he is good but he wont be considered great until he beats someone great......legends f!ght other legends.....check the record books.......

LEGENDS f!ght LEGENDS WHEN THEY ARE BOTH IN THE PRIME OF THERE CAREERS check your stats.

When he fought Corrales no one knew he had a "glass chin" until floyd exposed that. when he fought gatti above average skills or not everyone still never really thought he would domintate the way he did and baldomir was a quality opponent that hadn't lost a f!ght in 7 years. he don't need to f!ght anyone revelent to make people call him a legend and floyd don't need them f!ghts to make a name for himself, they need floyd to make a name for themselves these days there can never be a legend v.s legend match like the days of hagler v.s hearns or ali v.s frazier, because half these guys you think are good and revelant to the division don't have the skills or there skills are deminished to were the f!ght would be irrevelant. and how can you say oscar never got any credit until he started taking f!ghts he could lose??? oscar has been great since day 1 and always had my respect since i saw him beat Jorge Paez. he didn't just start to get mad respect from people when he fought trinidad or ike quartey or mosely f!ghts that "he could lose" and beating a legend don't make you great kid, the late trevor burbick beat muhammad ali and he was never considered a legend after that, Terry Norris beat Sugar Ray Leonard and he was never considered a legend after the so i think YOU should check your record books

Floyd is a great f!ghter, but I feel as if the title of LEGEND is being thrown around too loosely. He is undefeated, and he has won 5 titles, and that does put him in the the category of GREAT, but I wouldn't call him a LEGEND. I agree that he is far more skilled and talented than all of the f!ghters available to him, but he doesn't have that career defining f!ght under his belt, he doesn't have that f!ght that cements his status of LEGEND. I would put Roy Jones Jr in the LEGEND category, because he does have guys like Hopkins and Toney on his resume, and he moved up and won a heavyweight title. I'm not saying Floyd needs to win the heavyweight title, but I do think he needs a f!ght or two against guys that are considered great f!ghters. Baldomir and Judah were never mistaken for great f!ghters. He neesds a f!ght against someone held in high regard, a f!ght that people will see as a legitamate challenge. Until then, there will always be a question in the minds of many as to just how great he truly is. Like I said, nobody doubts that Muhammad Ali, Ray Robinson or Floyd Patterson are LEGENDS, the fact that there is a debate amongst boxing experts and fans proves that he is not a sure fire LEGEND.

He wouldnt have a challenge unless he moves up more, and that isnt good for his body at all when u keep moving up, there is no one skilled enough to f!ght him around his natural weight class man it aint his fault he is too skilled i never knew that was a bad thing

I am not discrediting anything that Floyd Mayweather has done in his career, I respect any man that can get in the ring and f!ght. And Floyd is not the average run of the mill f!ghter, he is one of the most skilled guys of this generation. Most f!ghters can only dream about doing some of the things Mayweather is capable of doing, but I feel that he has to step up to the plate and f!ght some of the guys that are considered legitamate threats. If Floyd f!ghts De La Hoya or Margarito and wins, I think it will give him a career defining match, that would change a lot of people's opinion about his place in history. Until then, there will always be a question mark in many people's mind. But if Floyd feels he has done enough and does retire, only time will tell what his legacy will truly be.

It's like this, Peyton Manning wins football games consistently, and puts up huge numbers, wins the MVP goes to the ProBowl, and sets NFL records, yet many people feel that Tom Brady is better. They feel that Brady is better, because he has won on the biggest stage. Until Manning wins a Superbowl, some people will question him. Floyd is in a similar situation, he needs that f!ght that will silence his critics. He needs a great f!ght against a great f!ghter, a f!ght that will remove some of the doubts that people have about him.
