Have no clue who Maidana is. I have a hard time liking Mayweather after I saw an ESPN interview of his. I don't mind his cockiness, or arrogance, he's earned the right to claim he is the best, but I have a problem with how he hid from Manny when Manny would have beat him and how he came off as a bigot saying there were no good white Boxers as he apparently is not aware who the heavyweight champ is.

There are no good white boxers! LOL. JAB JAB JAB RIGHT HAND JAB JAB JAB RIGHT HAND...ok he is dominant now but sooooo boring. We'll see if anyone challenges him.
I use to hate Floyd because of his attitude - it isn't my way. However, seeing some of his recent fights, especially live, I think he is the greatest of this generation by far. That ridiculous split decision with Oscar...Oscar barely landed a punch if you actually slow down the tape. Judges are too slow and dumb to even realize how great Floyd is...probably the best defensive, adaptive, and counter-puncher of all time.
...and for the record, Miguel Cotto is my favorite fighter.

Oh and Floyd will win every round of this fight unless Judges count flying forward and getting punched in the mouth repeatedly as "effective aggression". LOL. This is a decent stay busy fight. My hope is Cotto beats Martinez which sets up a rematch w Floyd. If Floyd wins that, he should retire - nothing left to prove. I think Cotto has a more legit chance now with Roach in his corner.

Floyd also fight kind of like a $#@!. He runs away and is always defending. He never presses the action. You have to go after him. That's lame. If I fought him I'd just do what he does and it would be the most boring fight in history as nobody would swing at anyone until the fight was over.

Couple things - he is not a Welterweight - Floyd is pretty small. He doesn't cut weight for 147 - he eats like normal. He doesn't have the power to take these guys out really. But he does throw with bad intentions. He does go after guys, he just takes a few rounds to adapt. He lit up Cotto towards the end of the fight and took chances. No one throws a lead right like Floyd once he has you timed.
Name the last boring Floyd fight? He humiliated Alvarez...humiliated him.

As he should be. He's in another universe as a fighter. Maidana can throw but that's about the only tool he has. Everything about him is slow and he telegraphs his intentions to even the most casual fine (ie me). The weigh in was a sideshow, as it almost always is. I think 2 Chainz was there as well with Rick.E88 N54 w stuff

Tyson was a 41-1 favorite over Douglas.

Floyd is just too good at what he does and that is "box" , you would think he doesn't throw punches if you didn't watch every second of every round but that man is a genius in the ring , pure talent .
He literally does exactly what he has to do for three rounds to know exactly what you are going to do before you do it... and than just puts on an exhibition that no one else can duplicate. Love him , hate him, he is the best at what he does ... He's got his trophies lol he's literally just in it to embarrass people now ...
the thing is he could knock these people down but he doesn't care to bc he doesn't need to , he knows he is winning every second of every fight except for against cotto which was obv by his facial expressions but he still used his brain and skills to win that fight easily.09 6AT 335i Coupe M-Sport - SOLD

Floyd is $#@!ing nuts man - he trains harder than anyone out there.
You don't have to like him, but there is a reason he is the best. Part of it is God-given (if you believe that sort of thing), the other part is insane work ethic.

He's a little sexist.
Can you expect much more with his parents, family, and upbringing? Honestly, I think it's an amazing story that he hasn't $#@!ed up worse.
I know someone who interacted with him on a regular basis. This dude is a great friend of mine and a solid guy and judge of character. He did not like him. I bet I would not want to hang out with him for more than 5mins, but I respect him. Also consider that Floyd does have different personas and reactions to people. Point in case - he was very respectful of Miguel Cotto. He genuinely respects him and that was reflected in the way they interacted. In a lot of ways, it's like me on your web board. One second I'm telling someone to lick my balls, then next I'm giving someone an e-high-five because of their awesome car history. His whole life is fighting - literally. I'm surprised he isn't even more abrasive.
