If Ronda wanted to be his next victim, it'd be amusing to me.

Beating women is never right. But Mayweather fans seem to brush it aside. The guy has world class talent, obviously the best fighter in his generation but I can't support someone who beats women.

In a street fight I'd give ronda the edge, boxing match Floyd. To say that it's his opponents job to make the fight exciting is pure crap. He's a prize fighter, he claims to be an "entertainer" so as fans we have every right to say that he's boring. Yes I know he's a defensive wizard but he's a great sales man, as most top fighters are.

You always hear from his camp. We're going to KO this and that guy in round yes. Mayweather is not knocking ANYONE out at this stage. Neither is PAC.

I can't wait for the Cotto vs Canelo match up if it ever happens.

Your self-imposed prison is your own burden to bear.

Certain guys have the charisma to entertain people with their personality.

Many people, you included, dislike or even hate him. But he has the most emotional relevance out of any fighter today. People like entertainment because it pumps their emotions.

Do you also get angry at marketers for telling you they have the leading product.

This comparing MMA fighters to boxers is just silly to me. Fights like that will never happen so why say that any MMA fighter would beat any boxer in a street fight? You think PBF is going to get into a street fight?

That's like saying that the top NFL defensive back can hold Chris Paul. Really? First, that matchup will never happen. Second, Chris Paul would blow by whoever is holding him.

It's a different sport. One fighter is not "tougher" or more "rugged" than the other. PBF has been fighting for almost 30 years. Some of the MMA fighters are not 30 years old.

That doesn't make PBF a better fighter than an MMA top level fighter(and I don't follow MMA.) PBF is tops in his sport. Whoever the top MMA fighter is tops in their sport. Either would beat the other if they stepped into the "ring" with the rules of their opponent.

I am a fan of PBF's skill and the fact that he is the best fighter in the World. I do not condone beating women and don't brush it aside.

Nah, I don't hate him. Excuses is all I'm hearing.

Mayweather fans always get riled up whenever someone says something negative about him. Anyways, I look forward to other fights.

Go on boxing scene and you will see "hate" for any boxer. I don't get value for my money by watching him fight. I suppose if you're a fan sure he's exciting.

I agree. The comparison is silly, but tycoon brought it up. God forbid if someone doesn't agree or like Mayweather we're in for a huge debate.

Lets just agree to disagree. No hard feelings, wasn't trying to be a jerk

If that was directed at me...I didn't think you were being a jerk. Debate from all sides is good IMO.

I want to leave this Manny shit alone...but come on. I just saw a video(filmed this week) where Arum said that Manny's shoulder was 100% BEFORE the fight!
That camp is just pathetic and can't stop digging the grave deeper. Just take the L and STFU!
