No ifs about it…



Since when?



I can't really say much about Al Haymon since he wisely doesn't speak to the media and stays out of the spotlight except when his fighters thank him in the post-fight interview. Arum, on the other hand, is an old-school crook and pretty much everyone who isn't in denial will acknowledge that. He goes on this rant a few months ago about Khan & Floyd, last week rants about Maidana & Floyd. Who spends all that time talking about their competition? An old man that knows that he has a weak roster which potentially could be getting weaker:

Miguel Angel Garcia files suit against Top Rank - ESPN

Mikey has wised up, Manny would be smart to do the same…


As for excuses, it's interesting that Freddie Roach has recently come right out and stated that it was Team Pacquiao's fault why the fight didn't initially get made. He also said that he didn't feel that Mayweather was afraid of the fight despite your many allegations to the contrary.



First agreeable thing you've said in ages.
I'll ignore the first half of your post and the childish dribble.

So Haymon is wise and Arum is just a greedy old crook. Trust me, Al Haymon is every bit as crude and crooked as any oer manager or promoter. He is Floyd's new puppet master. None of his fighters under his control can make a move without him. So now Floyd won't need any excuses he can let Haymon pull those puppet strings.

As for Mikey Garcia who cares? He drains himself two weight classes to fight smaller fighters (Robert Garcia's preferred method of training) and hasn't proven or earned anything.

Not sure where Roach stated it was Manny's fault for not making the fight. Roach has most recently stated that Floyd doesn't want the fight because he is afraid to risk his undefeated record. He has listed all of Floyd's excuses since the first attempt that saw Manny defiantly stand up to Floyd's nonsense as he tried to dictate terms and making also accusations. A man who wants to fight doesn't look for excuses not to fight. Roach has been fairly vocal in recent interviews about Floyd's refusal to fight. It's only the most loyal of koolaid-aid drinkers who enjoy polishing Floyd's jock strap that are content with his excuses.

Oh...you mean the part where I pointed out more of your nonstop hypocrisy? Yeah, I'm sure that you would like to ignore that. BTW the word that obviously escaped your grasp is drivel, not dribble.

{sigh} Read again. I said that Haymon is wise to not speak with the media and stay out the limelight. Context is your friend. He may very well be as crooked as Arum, but he doesn't put anything out there in the press to get caught up in and have it come back and have it bite him in the rear. Therefore, I can't factually state that I know much about the man, I highly doubt that you can either.

Who cares? Let's see: one the most exciting up and coming fighters, 34-0 with 28 KO, good boxer with serious power. You can bet your ass Uncle Bob certainly cares!

Personally, I think Jr. is a POS, but he has a following especially among the Mexican boxing crowd. It seems that he's finally starting to get smart as well. But who cares about him either, right? Well, besides Uncle Bob that is.

You can hear it all from his own mouth in the video at that link.

As for the rest of your poor attempt at spin and your childish drivel, save it for someone who doesn't have the facts and thus doesn't know any better.

Tell you what, put down your Mayweather Pom-poms, change your funky little Floyd underoos, take the Justin Bieber posters off your wall and come back when you learn a thing or two about boxing. You can go back to your regularly scheduled googling of Maynever delusions. You talk of hypocrites but Floyd is the biggest of them all. Now one more time with enthusiasm...gimme an F, gimme and L, gimme an O...oh you know the rest.

Weak sauce. I suppose this kind of drivel is all you have left when you can't put together a cogent argument. Your concession is noted.

Your cluelessness seems applicable to a quote that is sometimes attributed to Abraham Lincoln:

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

Go home, coolhand, you're drunk.
