Can anyone beat Floyd Mayweather?

floyd#012By Thomas Cowan: After Floyd Mayweather completely dominated Robert Guerrero to retain his WBC welterweight championship and his unbeaten record on Saturday, the eternal question was asked yet again. Can anyone beat the Money man? The two fighters most fans see as the biggest threats to Mayweather are Manny Pacquiao and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.

I’ll start this article by saying I’m not a fan of Mayweather, Pacquiao or Canelo but I enjoy watching all three of them because they are clearly extremely talented. Mayweather showed on Saturday night that 12 months out of the ring have not hindered his ability to deliver a masterclass in controlling a fight, Pacquiao has been the most explosive fighter of the 21st century and Canelo announced his arrival on the world stage with a win over Austin Trout last month.

Floyd Mayweather Junior, a class all by himself

may#18(Photo credit: Naoki Fakuda) By By Babatis Banda: They all said he was aging and losing his legs. They also said he was losing his speed and defensive capabilities too. Of late, an argument is being advanced that Floyd is not an all-time great simply because there is no quality opposition. Some have gone as far as suggesting that he has actually avoided good opposition. It is impossible for a mere flesh and blood to please and satisfy everybody.

All these arguments are indicative of a great man. Floyd himself said that he aspires not only to be the best boxer, but the best sports personality and he is. Why is he the most highly paid if not? Forget about the insinuations, the mud smearing, the hate and the distortions and look at the reality of things. Whoever Floyd has faced has been reduced to the level of an ordinary boxer. This is simply because he is in a class of his own.

Mayweather: The Living Mystery Of Boxing

may#00(Photo credit: Naoki Fakuda) By Mohamed Horomtallah: It has been a year since Floyd Mayweather’s last fight with Miguel Cotto and many questions were hanging in the air before his long awaited return against Robert Guerrero. Did he loose his legs? Did his incarceration make him mentally weaker? Will he be able to resist to Guerrero roughing him up and putting constant pressure on him?

Watching Guerrero walking toward the ring, I couldn’t help but remember some images from his last fight, the way he beat up Berto and how his face looked after the fight. I thought that Mayweather was in for a tough and complicated fight. Little did I know that I was so far from the truth.

Floyd Mayweather Jr., NOT an all time great!

may1(Photo credit: Naoki Fakuda) By Juan dela Cruz: I came across an article from another boxing site saying Floyd Mayweather Jr. was not an all time great. The writer’s reason was the absence of quality opposition. Although I agree with the writer, there is just one part I am in total contrast with. And that is the reason – absence of quality opposition.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. is not an all time great and the world knows this. But the reason is different. It is not the absence of quality opposition but Floyd’s reluctance to fight them. Floyd missed Kostya Tszyu when he was still at 140 lbs division and even Oscar dela Hoya during the golden boy’s prime. He avoided prime Sugar Shane Mosley, prime Miguel Cotto, Antonio Margarito, and Manny Pacquiao.

Mayweather shows his class again, but what’s next?

floyd#15By Rameez Haider: Last night we saw the Master class that is Floyd Mayweather (44-0, 26 KO’s) in beat Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (31-2-1, 18 KO’s) by a 12 round unanimous decision at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Guerrero like Mayweather has moved up through the weights, and as he said himself, everyone he fought he has taken to the trenches. The way in which he dispatched of Andre Berto was a special performance from a very good boxer, yet he was made to look ordinary by an extra special talent.

This fight in many ways reminded me of the fight Mayweather had with Marquez.

Broner: Floyd took my easy work [Guerrero]

broner33By Eric Thomas: WBC lightweight champion Adrien Broner sounded a little disappointed last night after watching his good friend WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26KO’s) ad his 44th win of his career in beating Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (31-2-1, 18 KO’s) in a 12 round unanimous decision victory in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Broner and Guerrero already had bad blood between them, and Broner was counting on getting the chance to expose Guerrero and get a nice little payday in doing so. The two fighters had a twitter war going on last year, and Guerrero got in Broner’s face when the two fighters met up outside the ring at a function.

Floyd makes easy work of Guerrero: What’s next for Mayweather?

06(Photo credit: Naoki Fakuda) By OmarNM: After watching the fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KO’s) and Robert Guerrero (31-2-1, 18 KO’s) last night, I must say I was impressed with the way Floyd adapted to Robert’s style very quickly and was able to pick him round after round.

As soon as the fight started I was hardly looking to see if Floyd has lost some of his skills as he aged and I was surprised to see the superb performance he put on Saturday night. He proved (Floyd) that even at age 36 he still has the speed, accuracy, timing which is why he landed around 60% of his punches, and if possible an improved defense with ring generalship that only Floyd can possess.

Guerrero’s stock drops in loss to Mayweather Jr

guerrero01By Chris Williams: We had heard Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (31-2-1, 18 KO’s) say repeatedly that Floyd Mayweather Jr was slipping as a fighter and that he was ripe for the picking.

We had heard how god had selected him personally to be the guy that humbled Mayweather and given him his first loss of his career. But instead of these things happening, we saw Guerrero get schooled just like Mayweather’s past opponents like Carlos Baldomir, Zab Judah and DeMarcus Corley in losing by a 12 round unanimous decision.

Mayweather: I’ve got several names I’m thinking about for next fight

002MayweathervsGuerreroIMG_14171By Dan Ambrose: WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. and his father Floyd Sr. are saying there are several names they’re considering for his next fight in September.

They’re not saying who the guys are, but it does like WBA/WBC junior middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez isn’t on the list due to his close, controversial decision win over WBA junior middleweight champion Austin Trout.

Mayweather said at the post-fight press conference last night that he saw the Canelo-Trout fight as very, very close and he didn’t agree with the lopsided scores that were given to Canelo for the in Texas.

Guerrero: I want a rematch with Mayweather; he’s still got five more fights

floyd#14(Photo credit: Naoki Fakuda) By Chris Williams: Having gotten a little taste of the good green cash in getting a $3 million payday in losing to WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (44-0, 26 KO’s) by a 12 round unanimous decision last night, Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (31-2-1, 18 KO’s) is now talking about wanting a rematch with Mayweather.

Guerrero will likely now campaign for a rematch in the same tireless manner that he did in getting this fight. It took Guerrero two years of constant talking about the Floyd fight before he was given a shot against him, and he was laughed at much of the time by boxing fans. Guerrero ignored the laughter and in the end he got his
