Mayweather doesn't want to get beat, that 0 is his money spinner, so he won't fight anyone who he think has a chance of beating him, and even when he does fight an opponent that he knows he could beat, he still stacks the deck in his favour to give himself every advantage, even unfair advantages and he can do this because of the money he brings to the game and this is only possibel because American lacks any stand out boxer.

Good Fight by money this morning(RSA Time), now pacman needs to beats Cotto then he can talk taking floyd. That interviewer at the end of the fight was a jackass.

@ Mambo123, you said "Pacquiao is thought to be the only one who can beat Mayweather" but honestly Pac will get whopped for 12 rounds. First he cant get past Money's defence plus i dont think his defense is good enough to to keep out Money's attacks. Dont forget that Marquez gave Pac a torrid time and Money made him look a pub boxer this morning

Well said mate,
Lot's of stupid comments on the website, I think people are playing fight night too much.

"Money" is the best around and pacman would not be able to get to him, although he is a great fighter Mayweather is far too good for him...

Boxers do study eachother and if Freddie Roach is able to pick faults with Mayweather's style then Pacquiauo has a good chance.But we in boxing have seen pacquiauo get beat,hence should Mayweather employ the techniques that others who beat pacquiauo used then come 12 rounds 'Money' will leave the ring the winner.
Will be an exciting fight to watch hopefully.Respect to both boxers .....

the pacman is over rated.he beat a burnt out dela hoya and also as we know a highly over rated ricky hatton who isnt even true world class.floyd would beat pacman no question as all the pacman has is speed and mayweather has that too and plenty more.
mosley would be a much better fight to watch against floyd.

Mosley or Cotto are the only legitimate fights for Mayweather, but you can guarantee he won't go anywhere near those guys. He'd much rather fight someone smaller, and protect his record. If Pacquiao defeats Cotto, which in my opinion is unlikely, then we could have a very interesting fight on our hands.

This was a class display by Maywether. You cant tell me he has spent 21 months not training for this?
No matter who you put in the ring with him, he has far too much for anyone out there at the moment.
But I cant wait to see the next installment.

I hate it when it's obvious people that only pay attention to the headline grabbers. I.e. Pacquaio, saying he is the only one that can beat Mayweather is idiotic.

Sure he has a shot, as does Cotto, Mosley, Williams and Kirkland. However, I doubt Floyd will ever get as high as light middleweight to face the last 2.

Floyd has fought the best out there apart from the first 3 I mentioned...he probably has 5 fights to go before he really calls tie on his career so let's just wait and see what happens!!

for now though he reclaimed his p4p #1 ranking by toying with one of the best fighters in the world, size advantage or not!

Moseley beats Mayweather in a heartbeat.

That is a daft statement, Moseley has questionable wins over Oscar (later found to be on drugs) & lost to Cotto.

He is a good fighter, Mayweather is one of the greats.

People say he takes fights on his terms, look at his record, who hasnt he beat?

The guy may divide opinion with his attitude but he is leagues above anyone else out there.

I love Cotto & would love to see him beat Manny (who I fell is overated) but even I will admit I cant see how he can beat Floyd.

Pacquaio is a great little fighter and is NOT over-rated as someone has unfairly suggested. However Mayweather is supreme and in a class of his own and there is simply no-one who can touch him. It's good to see such a great fighter back in action. The sport needs Mayweather.

Get back to reality guys. FMJ beat a very over-rated Hatton who looked as though he hadn't trained in months. The Pacman dropped the very same Hatton and he beat the same Hatton at Hattons best fighting weight. It was clear that when FMJ fought Hatton, it was on FMJ's terms. If FMJ had fought Hatton at Hattons fighting weight, then it would have been much closer.

As far as exciting is concerned, Pacman is the most exciting boxer out there. FMJ is also known for being not a very heavy puncher, but being a boxer who throws enough accurate punches to win the fight so, that doesn't come as a surprise that he dropped JMM last night.

I think with any boxer who reaches the pinnacle of success there will always be those who say they should have fought x,y or z. He has beaten some of the leading lights of the sport in the last decade which, for me, means he deserves his reputation.

I love Pacman to bits, but am as yet unconvinced as to his credentials at the higher weights. The ODLH match was a joke and Hatton has clearly lost what he had. I'm not convinced he'll get past Cotto, but I won't consider him to have arrived at this sort of weight until he does.

when Marquez beat diaz everyone was saying he's pound for pound along side pacman, then fmj comes back wins every round against Marquez and then everybody now mentions moseley, so i think this will happen, cotto and pac will be sooo close/disputed that a rematch will have to occur. So fmj will fight moseley and comfortable beat him and everybody will say moseley was past it and had too many fights!, FMJ has beaten everybody comfortably can u say that about pacman,moseley,cotto?, i think not. because of the character fmj is he will never be able to do enough, ther will always be somebody who comes along to fight but fmj will beat them all, thats if they dont beat each other!

Mambo 123 - Mayweather is not ducking Pacquiao, he is gonna fight the winner of cotto vs pac, last night was merely a tune up fight. I agree with zeus 7076, Mayweather beats pac easily, but financially it makes sense to fight him. Mayweather needs to start fighting proper welterweights. Mosley would give him the fight of his life but he is scared of losing his O

If the art of boxing is not being hit, while pummelling your opponent, then Mayweather is a professor. Other boxers may have a good punch, but it's pretty useless when a boxer's defences are as good as Mayweather's. It doesn't matter who you put in front of him, hill will just out-box them with his movement and speed.

I don't think weight has a lot to do with Floyd and Hatton. Floyd's weight, Hatton's weight it was never going to be 'close'.

Pacquiao might be a little light to fight Mayweather, as Marquez was last night.

Pacquiao is undoubtedly more exciting but Mayweather just looks so so comfortable. Last night was a superb display and I really think that he has the speed, the defence, the reaction time, the punch timing and the ring craft to beat anyone.

I'd love to see the Mosely fight, or the Pacquiao fight but I think Mayweather will win..

He also seems less objectionable this time around

Not true that Pacman is the only fight out there for Mayweather. Mayweather really is so good that it's hard to think of many people who can give him a decent fight, let alone beat him but there are a few names.
As old as he is, I think that Sugar Shane would have an outside chance. Great chin and very fast hands. Stamina might be the only problem. Manny pac is as fast as Mayweather but I'm not sure he's got Floyds boxing brain, that aspect of manny's game is supplied by Roach. So, I think that Floyd starts this one a narrow favourite but wouldn't be at all surprised of manny blitzes him.
The one fighter I think can beat Mayweather is Paul Williams. He's not as charasmatic as the others and only the hardcore fans know much about him but he's got it all. Fast, strong, long, long arms and as fit as any fighter out there. Mayweather could struggle with the constant pressure and possibly find himself on the back foot trying to keep a bigger, younger, stronger man off of him.

The best bit about FMJ is watching him in slow motions, you can then appreciate how clever this guy is.

Everything happens so quick in real time that you don't see how slick FMJ can be in the ring.

FMJ is so quick,and so hard to hit,plus he's very accurate with his punches,he will beat anyone,mosley,cotto,whoever.

It was a privilege to watch Floyd Mayweather last night. He really is a phenomenal boxer - IMO the best of this generation.

The guy possesses supreme skills and immense speed. I can't ever remember watching a guy that fast. His personality will always split opinions, but his boxing ability never should. I suggest that people enjoy and appreciate watching Pretty boy, as he is a once in a generation fighter. He will be up there along side Ali, Leonard, Robinson, Chavez and Hagler.

i dont think you can predict who would win oout mayweather and pacman

it took fmj 10 rounds to beat hatton and it took pac man 2

mayweather went to points with oscar, some argue oscar should have won, not me

pac man hammered oscar in 8 rounds,

i dont see mayweather v mosely or anubody else a big MONEY fight,

pac man would maybe be though

he very good. Jones was as fast AND a bigger fighter. Floyd still needs to be fight Manny and Willimas and beat them to be called the best of his generation. IMO Pacman holds that title...six weight divisions for God's sake. A former flyweight?! It's ridiculous.

Surely the fight is for FMJ to fight a full middleweight or something at 155+? What does he prove outsizing and yes outclassing small guys?

Big Mayweather fan but would like to see him fight someone who has a good chance to beat or at least hurt him. Mosley if he is allowed to prepare without interference from drug testers might be interesting as he has the power to hurt FMJ.

Not sure why the seeming ducking of Pacman a much smaller man and the money would be huge. Maybe FMJ does not want to disrespect Cotto before that fight. I would imagine a Pacman would beat a robot punch by numbers guy like Cotto even if he is a proper welterweight and will have a chance. I don't think we learned anything about Pacman against bigger opponents from the DLH and Hatton fights because of the poverty of opposition (not his fault Hatton chose not to train properly and insulted the punters who paid vast sums to see him).

Mayweather ducking Pacman?? hilarious, people will believe anything. Marquez fought Pacman hard twice(should have won atleast one) but Floyd just ripped apart Marquez. Pacman has 0 chance against Mayweather, Bob Arum knows it and wants to milk Pacman's popularity with fights from his own guys eg Cotto

Without doubt Floyd's the best of his generation. Its wishrul thinking to think otherwise, just wish these guys who interview him after his fightd could give him the recognition he deserves. One has to see him in slow mo to see how accurate he is, or else in real time like someone already suggested above, one cant see the damage he will be causing.

I think PBF beats anyone out there in the lower weight divisions and probably a fair few in the higher weights he is that good.

also not so sure Pacman beats Cotto. a lot of people saying Pacman is overhyped, but the wins at different weight classes tell a different story. can't see Pacman beating PBF though and i think Cotto will come through that, great boxer. Pity Mayweather isn't a bit heavier to challenge the super-middleweights (super 6 is soon isn't it?) but i couldn't see a welter fighting a super-mid.

anyway Cotto to beat Pacman, PBF to beat Cotto.

Big fan of both Pac and Floyd but....

Floyd will just be too strong for him. PacMan wont have the speed edge, which is something he normally holds in his fights, and Floyd at times looks like he could box all day and not get hit.

I think the only way Floyd would ever come close to losing would be to move up weight classes and fight bigger giys. I'd love to see him in a tear up with Mosley, as someone else said a guy that could, maybe, hurt him.

I hope he stays around for a few more fights now because he is an amazing boxer and it's a pleasure to watch.

There is no doubt that Floyd looked impressive his defence reflexes and handspeed were awesome.

It has to be noted that he was fighting a guy that is really a super featherweight and who has campaigned at featherweight for the majority of his career. Essentially Marquez jumped 3 divisions in the space of 18 months. This is the equivalent of Floyd fighting against the likes of Froch, Taylor, Kessler, Abraham etc. Which is very unlikely to happen.

Credit to Marquez for having the cojones to take this fight against the most talented boxer in the sport. He is truly a great fighter in his own weight division and can be proud that he lasted the full 12 rounds with Mayweather.

I used to place too much value on what people write in this forum. I do so no longer. Before the Money-Marquez fight, some thought this was the time for Mayweather to lose. Now that he has won convincingly, instead of showing their admiration, they are still not satisfied and begin to point at other names. Like Mayweather said himself, he canīt fight everyone. We have to be objective and just appreciate the boxing genius that he is. I also thought the interviewers were a shame for their failure to acknowledge the champion. such a champion. They were clearly from the haters camp....
