Quote Ariza all you like since he was there. I suppose his testimony is just as credible as 50-cent who also claims that Floyd is afraid to lose to Manny, after all, he was there.
Actually he didn't claim that. From the article that you posted:

Quote:
‘I wouldn’t say he’s afraid of Pacquiao or any fighter,’ says 50 Cent.
Here's a clue for you: Try actually reading the material that you want to cite as source so you won't continue to make yourself look silly like this.

Besides the bitter 50 Cents was no longer in Mayweather's entourage when Manny ducked Floyd's last offer to fight that Ariza is talking about.

Quote:
There you go spouting PPV numbers as proof of greatness. Floyd's undercards give his numbers a healthy boost and he is still not nearly as exciting to watch as Manny. Keep using money to measure greatness, because you certainly can't use his opposition or heart.
The question isn't about greatness. I didn't say anything about greatness. You brought up POPULARITY. PPV numbers are a indeed valid barometer of popularity. Duh! You spew so much crap that you don't even know what the hell you're talking about from post to post.

As much as it obviously KILLS you, Floyd will go down as one of the all times greats and already has a future hall-of-famer calling him the greatest of this era. You covering your eyes and stomping your feet can't change that.

Quote:
For those that think Manny is ducking or not in his league...it's not Manny with at least half dozen excuses not to fight.
Wrong as usual. Scared of needles, blood testing makes him too weak, an outdoor stadium needs to be built, a cut in November won't be healed by May 5th, won't fight for $40 million+ but will supposedly fight for free. Manny's camp isn't short on excuses.

Quote:
Good to see mediocrity rewarded with one dimensional fair-weather fans who will have no one to root for once their cowardly messiah retires.
Once again, reduced to throwing a tantrum with pejoratives when facts are against you. Tissue?

Yawn, Zzzzzzzzzzzzz. Evan, keep selling the same old bill of goods that Floyd is pitching to the public. It's his fans that have enabled him to get away with ducking Manny.

Floyd Mayweather Jr’s fans helping Floyd avoid the fight with Pacquiao

Ariza is a bitter outcast who was fired and now wants his pound of flesh. Floyd goes into a fake retirement to duck Manny and other prime opposition. Comes back when everyone is either softened up for the kill, old, or out of the picture altogether. When Manny agrees to testing Floyd goes silent then demqnds more money, when Manny agrees to take less money Floyd goes silent and demands he leave Arum. He claims that a champion in eight weight classes is not as competitive as C rate fighters like Guerroro, Ortiz, and Alvarez. Keep polishing the cowards trophy. His place in history will always be tarnished for his cherry picking and dodging. No matter how much he puffs his chest and declares himself the greatest.

Can you disprove what he's saying? No? Didn't think so. Your tired theories are meaningless.

You calling Canelo a C-rate fighter only serves to illustrate how utterly clueless you truly are.

FYI the one more likely to be a coward is the one that needs his promoter's permission to speak and handed the phone to someone else when the fight was offered to him yet again.

Floyd's place in history as one of the all time greats and likely the greatest of his era is secure.

It will only take one loss to shatter Floyd's legacy. He knows this and he will match himself up in his last few fights to make sure that doesn't happen. Expect his last few opponents to be more sacrificial stiffs to be offered up as padding for his already inflated record. Mosley is punchy and probably looking for Floyd to throw him a bone.

Haters and their consistently weak theories that don't hold water.

False accusations of drug use was where this started. Yet when Floyd fought Mosley the last test prior to the fight was 18 days. But even when Manny agreed to 14 days Floyd still wouldn't sign. He's made more excuses not to fight and his fans are perfectly fine with that because they know that Manny was the biggest threat to his undefeated record.

Now he's talking about fighting the winner of Khan vs Callazo. What?!?!?!?! Please tell me what Callazo has done in his career to deserve to be included in a discussion for possible opponents. KO that joke Ortiz who Floyd had to sucker punch in order to win? Didn't Khan already beat Maidana? Didn't Floyd's fans on his website vote for Khan to be his next fight? What happened to keeping his word? Apparently it's not worth anything, and his fanboys will lap up anything he spills on the floor.

Drug testing detailed for Mayweather-Mosley fight - Los Angeles Times

Quote:
The head of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, Travis Tygart, said Mayweather and Mosley will be subjected to random urine and/or blood tests from now "until and after the fight."
Now whenever USADA decided to do their tests was at their discretion. The point is that both fighters were subject to random testing up until the fight and afterwards. No 14 or 18 day cutoffs or any other such nonsense.

It's too bad that silly haters apparently don't understand that while they're entitled to their own opinions, they're not entitled to their own facts.

Silly haters? Just because some of us aren't fans of Mayweather that doesn't make us haters. I was never a fan of JCC, Ray Leonard, or Hopkins, but I don't hate them. If I point out some very obvious clues that someone doesn't want to fight a particular opponent, that isn't hating, that's raising awareness to the fanboys who can't see what's right on the surface. They've pledged allegiance to their fighter and their pride won't allow them to see things objectively. I like Pacman but I'm not a hardcore fan. But it's obvious to anyone with two functioning eyes in their head that Floyd has been dodging him and coming up with one excuse after another. The question of random testing only came up as a way out while trying to tarnish Mannys rep. Floyd even had to pay an out of court settlement as well as Mannys legal fees for making such accusations. Wich is why he came up with more excuses ever since.

Nah, you're not raising anything. The fight would've been over and done with, but Manny tanked the negotiations because he for one excuse or another wouldn't agree to random drug testing (testing he demanded in his fight against Brandon Rios). There's an eyewitness report of Floyd calling Manny and offering him the fight again. Yet Manny apparently again didn't want the fight. He didn't try to negotiate, he simply tapped out.

That's what's on the surface. No clues or divination needed.

Please Mr. Google, show us this eyewitness report, this reliable source that can provide proof.
