    Cool Floyd Mayweather Jr. retires.... AGAIN

    http://sports.yahoo.com/box/news?slu...v=ap&type=lgns


    Unbeaten welterweight Floyd Mayweather Jr. announced his retirement again Friday, with boxing’s unofficial pound-for-pound king saying he no longer has the passion necessary to fight.


    “I am sorry I have to leave the sport at this time, knowing I still have my God-given abilities to succeed and future multi-million dollar paydays ahead, including the one right around the corner,” Mayweather said. “But there comes a time when money doesn’t matter. I just can’t do it anymore. I have found a peace with my decision that I have not felt in a long time.”

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    C'mon BgMc31, wussup w/ your boy???
    Sooo, what does every1 think he has up his sleeves now?? WWE, Dancing w/ the stars part II, Gladiators, American Idol?!? Ohh man,, how much I hate this guy!! Lol...

    Dude do you even follow boxing? That is the most ridiculous predictions I've ever heard. 1st there is no reason for him to fight Hatton again. The fight was so completely lopsided that the smaller Hatton poses zero threat to Mayweather. Plus fighting Hatton again accomplishes nothing for Mayweather.

    Fighting Calzagne? WHAT? There is no way Mayweather will step up 3 weight classes to fight him. There is no way Mayweather can even begin to add that much weight without losing his greatest weapon...speed! Floyd walks around at 155lbs-160lbs. That fight would be suicide and again will gain Mayweather zero credibility.

    Obviously something happened with DeLaHoya fight. I'm guessing it was due to the way the split between him and Oscar for their September fight. Obviously Oscar is still demanding the lions share and I'm sure Floyd thinks he should get the larger purse because of the outcome of the 1st fight.

    I think this is just a leverage move on Mayweather's part. He won't retire for good. His legacy is dependent upon him beating DelaHoya again and beating the young lion Cotto. Those are the only fights that make sense for Mayweather.

    There he is... Thank you..

    Yeah,, this is the last thing I would want to watch go down again Lol...

    Let's hope so Bg.. BUT if I were to place my chip on anything it would be a Cotto/HOya late 08'!! Then it would be a Monster payday in 09' for a Mayweather re-re-retirement comeback!!

    Mayweather v Calzaghe? Thats crazy talk. Once floyd beats Oscar again and finishes off by pounding cotto the party is over. He will have noone to answer the call and retire an all time great.

    Prepare to lose money, brotha! A 36yr old Oscar can't deal with the speed of PBF in his prime. Did you see the Forbes fight? Although Oscar was dominant fighting a much smaller fighter, did you see how bad Forbes marked up Oscar's face? PBF is a much faster, bigger, and stronger fighter than Forbes. PBF v. DelaHoya will be just like the 1st fight...Mayweather by decision. But this time it will be a unanimous decision.

    Wasup BgMc!! I think if delahoya gets tuned up properly this year he should be able to pull it off....maybe that's why PBF is announcing retirement, cause he senses it...

    The other thing is if mayweather sr. is delahoya's corner this time, that might be the difference... i still don't get all the bad blood in that family??? crazy!!

    Delahoya wants it bad and PBF is probably just not into his training...that will be a bad deal for PBF.

    I have to respectfully disagree Red! I guarantee PBF announced retirement because of a disagreement in pay. Everyone knows Money Mayweather is about just that...MONEY!

    DelaHoya can tune as much as he wants, talent usually prevails in matchups like this. DelaHoya usually has a hard time against smaller faster fighters.

    As far as Sr. being in DelaHoya's corner, that means zero. Its just fodder to hype the fight. Sr. hasn't been in Jr's corner for years and Jr hs evolved tremendously since. Roger's a better trainer IMO anyway. Nobody knows Jr better than him.

    DelaHoya is trying to stay relevant. He's come up short in every rubber match with smaller fighters but his ego keeps telling him he can win.

    Both fights don't make sense dude. Its not public knowledge especially since hatton struggled with Luzcano. He doesn't need to be 49-0 to prove he's the best. And the argument against fighters of the past is bullshit. That's a debate that will never end. Another hatton fight does nothing for Floyd's legacy. And stepping up 3 almost 4 wt classes is stupid, especially since he won't be able to hold 168lbs without, again, losing his best weapon...SPEED!!!! So, again, your idea of him fighting Calzagne proves you know little about the sport.

    Public knowledge? Maybe wishful thinking in England, brotha! Calzagne next big money fight is at light heavyweight against either Antonio Tarver or Roy Jones. Then there is still Kelly Pavlik. Fighting a much smaller (much, much smaller), Mayweather does nothing for Calzagne's legacy either.

    Nobody's hatin on your boy, papi! Cotto is a great fighter but he's tailor made for Mayweather. Straight-ahead, little head movement. Similar to Hatton but bigger and stronger. Plus Cotto been down and hurt several times. Great fight, money-wise for both fighters but a bad style matchup for Cotto. Cotto fans want to talk about the Mosely fight as proof that Cotto can handle a fast fighter, but Mosely did hurt Cotto in that fight. His decision to bang with Cotto was his downfall. Mayweather won't make that mistake.

    The huge money fight for Cotto is against Oscar. A fight that would end DelaHoya's career, IMO.

    dude you haven't got a clue. This debate is pointless. Please show me any article anywhere that states any of these fantasies you are having. NaÔve...dude I live in Vegas and follow the fight game quite closely and there is absolutely zero evidence to your claims.

    I think someone is telling you porkies there on the Calzaghe coming down 2 weights! he struggles to keep to his limit at Super middle!
    Even if they meet in the middle Calzaghe would batter Mayweather hes too big, strong and has way too much range. It would be a Jeff Lacy all over again.

    I think what hes confusing it is, Hatton has put forward a re-match challenge to Mayweather but at a half weight.... they only put this forward last week so i guess the British Board of Boxing has not returned a verdict on fighting at a half weight division....

    Just so no one confuses what im on about, Hatton gains a few pounds from his normal fight weight limit and Floyd Loses a few pounds i.e they meet in the middle.. i can see the sense and it would put Floyd at a disadvantage and Ricky would have a bit more of an advantage, but i dont think it would change much from the last result....

    Nah i very much doubt it in both cases. Calzaghe has nothing to prove by fighting someone who is so much out of his division....
    Hatton, well i know of hatton, i lived in manchester for a good few years, i worked in his home town, i worked with a guy who was one of the "3 amigos" (Hatton, himself and another guy) when they were kids... hes told me as have a few others who know him on a personal basis that hes to wise to hang on for ever waiting for that money dangling fight... hes a clever bloke and a good comentator, if he wanted could easily get signed like McGuigan has.. but hes alos starting a business up so money for him is not a real issue neither is a warrant to hang on for ever to fight a guy hows only after a pay day.

    Cant see why he would do it for money, he can make way more in boxing than he could ever make in MMA.

    But saying that, eh will probably be more entertaining from the likes of Kimbo trying to justify fighting in MMA
