I thought this whole thing was supposed to be a publicity stunt for this Japanese fella so we'd all know who he was.  I'm not sure how getting KO'd by a retired 41 year old and then having a little cry about it in the corner helps him in that regard but I'm not a PR expert so what do I know...

:lmao :lmao :lmao

Fighting a kickboxer in a boxing match, and the kickboxer was probably a Bantamweight by the look of him. Floyd has been an irrelevance for a while now but is a master at making money by finding enough suckers to pay to watch his schtick. Shame he is as bad at spending it as he is good at making it. Expect a few more of these fiascos before he finally calls time. I've zero complaints personally; can't stand the guy but I can't knock him. If people keep paying him for nonsense, why shouldn't he keep doing it?

On that note, I'm off to start a Twitter feud with him so I can eventually make a fight with him and go down in the first round at the first slight touch.  ;)

First thing you need to do is put on a pair of boxing gloves and fishnets, then strike some silly poses. That'll get him to notice you.

I can say I'm McGregor's cousin seeking revenge.

Alternatively, six of us RAWKites can challenge him to beat Foreman's record of defeating five guys in under an hour. It happened about six months after losing to Ali and doesn't show up in his record. Incredibly, Ali was ringside, and spent the night taking the piss out of Foreman  :o

I can only imagine the negotiation for that hot mess.

Promoter: We've got a big money fight for you. Easy money. A kickboxer.

Floyd: He can't kick.

Promoter: But he's a kickboxer?!

Floyd: Too bad. No kicking or no fight.

Promoter: Sigh. Ok.

Floyd: And he's gotta be over 75 years old. With arthritis & cataracts.

Promoter: I can't do that! No one will watch. How about young, but smaller and weaker than a 14 year old girl?

Floyd: Ok, let's do it. But he has to cry when he loses.

Promoter: But...

Floyd: No crying, no fight!

What was the fucking point in that? 2 stone lighter kickboxer not allowed to kick against one of the worlds most experienced boxer. At least with McGregor, Mayweather let it play out for a few rounds.

Why?

It's not an official contest.

Floyd got 9m for that. If someone wants to pay 9m for an exhibition match that Floyd knows he would piss then of course he would take it. He's all about the money.

I agree with you.
Itís on no official record and they are always clear that it was nothing but an exhibition fight, ie, not competitive.

The fume from the boxing community is rediculous. I think perhaps, judging results such as wilder/fury and GGG/canelo are infinitely more embarrassing for boxing than Mayweather on his world tour.

Because its ALL about money, its embarrassing in my opinion. Summed it up yourself, he's all about the money

Imagine taking on someone who doesn't even participate in your sport 'because money'.

Its my own opinion, I don't expect anyone to agree at all but for me moneys been ruining sport for some time now and its just getting worse. To me, that wasn't boxing, it was paying someone to act like a c*nt and literally laugh at the fact someone is stupid enough to offer that much money for something so ridiculous.

Don't get the fume, it's just an exhibition and this sort of thing used to be way more common. Ali went to Japan and fought a wrestler in an exhibition and I'm fairly sure money paid a part in that.

An exhibition it most certainly wasn't, it was just a quick money grab by Mayweather. A proper exhibition would be to allow Tenshin to use kicks and wear MMA gloves, that would've made it worth watching and competitive. But Floyd doesn't do competitive. Now there's talk of him wanting Khabib in a boxing match. Old man needs to piss off once and for all, sick of the guy at this point.

I thought he would become a real top-notch fighter. I know he is a world champion etc. but his career CV isn't too impressive. I can see Eubank 'winning' a controversial decision.

That's actually a more difficult challenge than Kell Brook so fair play. But then again, he's not known to be the sharpest tool in the shed and unfortunately for him, he's bound to get stopped. Crawford is a different level.

Yep

Heís bottled it by fighting someone better
I believe the average spend will go up £5 ahead and thatís being very conservative. So thatís £185k. Then you have a new 25k who will spend £10 a head thatís £250k. This is without the massively enhanced hospitality areas.

I agree he has by fighting someone everyone knows will beat him including himself. He has nothing to lose as Crawford is on a different level. It means nothing to him or anyone else. But if he loses to Brook a fighter who is viewed is a less favourable light then his legacy drops down another notch and his pride dented.

What legacy?

His legacy is exactly the same as Brooks legacy. Quite good boxer, very talented youngster who never lived up to the hype, wasted much of his career waiting for other fights. He probably is trolling at this point but honestly, running scared of Brook when heís fought guys like Canelo and Garcia? Nah.

I never said he was scared of Brook.

It's like us playing United in a CL final or Juventus. It hurts to lose both bit it hurts and means so much more to lose to United your local rival. You would prefer not to meet United  in the final but your not running scared of meeting them. I think he is bottling facing Brook but not afraid of him either just the outcome were he to lose.
