    I don't know about this. It is a huge jump from Jr. Lightweight to Jr. Middleweight. I think Mayweather might be making a mistake, if Winky was a bigger puncher....since he isn't, I think this will be an intriguing matchup!

    I dont know if Mayweather should take this fight against winky maybe against another jr middleweight but not Winky. Mayweather might be going to far but this would be a great fight for the fans. I would buy this fight

    I think it might be an intriguing match up, speed vs defense. Although Winky saw this before (Shane Mosley) and won. I do think that Floyd is a better boxer than Shane Mosley, and certainly wouldn't look to knock Winky out (as Shane Mosley foolishly did). Thus as a battle of boxer vs. boxer it definately would be entertaining.

    P.S. Floyd would be jumping from Jr. Welterweight, not Jr. Lightweight...but it is still a big leap.

    I know that Floyd has great boxing skills and that at this point he may be able to outbox a lot of these guys but there are some things you just don't do...and moving up in weight without the weight coming naturally is one of them.

    I think Floyd should clean up the Jr. Welterweight division first. There are some good fights with big money there with Ricky Hatton and Cotto. Then, move up to Welterweight and Jr. Middleweight. But, to jump to Jr. Middleweight and fight someone who is fighting at Middleweight...smh. I don't care for that.

    I also like the idea of Floyd staying active by fighting those guys in the lower divisions as he's moving up...of course, assuming those fights can be made with few hitches. It keeps Floyd active and he can gain the weight naturally...bringing along his speed, hopefully.

    Pan, are you registered on this site? I can't read the rest of the article unless I register. smh

    I think they're trying to instigate a fight between those two. Floyd needs to be careful to not get lured into any fights that may not be in his best interests. I hope his Dad and Uncle are sitting him down and talking to him about the slippery tongue of the media.

    Don't get me wrong. But, I would think that some reporter calling me and telling me what some fighter or fighters have said that they'll do to me is suspect.

    Floyd, be careful, bruh.

    Ok, bruh. I thought you had a subscription. If this is true, then it will surface in the other news outlets soon.

    Thanks for the excerpt though. Dapz.
