    The last time I read anything about Floyd actually breaking a hand was his bout with Carlos Hernandez. If he broke it against Baldo, I don't recall any of the news sites reporting it.

    Good post, but I disagree with the last line. Look how nice Meldrick Taylor was. People loved him and he had a lower ko ratio than PBF.

    Also, Pernell Whitaker is very beloved by his fan base

    That was a great fight. PBF's voice cracked when he was told he had a little blood in his nose. Like he was about to cry but caught himself, but he manned up. Thats how I know he's got more than he's willing to give to the fans that made him. I know damn well he can ko most the guys he fights. I think he could have done a hell of a lot more damage to DLH as well. He just wasnt willing to take the risks necessary to get it done.

    Just because the news sites didn't report it doesn't mean it didn't happen.

    Floyd and Roger are actually "gasp" very cordial in person. All around nice guys. Like KK said earlier, get a camera around Floyd and he is a totally different person.
    When I was at PBF's training camp, Mario Lopez came to interview him for his little sports show or what not, and Lopez was tellin him how he trains at wild card with freddie and how Roach is the best on the focus pads blah blah blah and Floyd didnt say much. Then the cameras come on and Folyd and Roger are working the focus mitts (WITH BOTH OF THEIR EYES CLOSED)and Mayweather looks to Mario and then to the camera, smiles, and says, "Whats Freddie got on this"? Mario couldnt say shit. Funny stuff right there.

    Well, i think he will have enough. But he is never as good as business man like Oscar.

    How much money has Oscar?

    It's reported if it happens. That goes for every big fighter. They are all being watched like a hawk

    There are many, many things that by tradition are hidden, or not spoken about when outsiders such as members of the media are around. Guaranteed, the only individuals that are aware of Floyd's true physical condition are only the innermost members of his camp. Anything that is shown or discussed with the media or visitors is done so with careful consideration and purpose.

    First is onto something, and it has to do with the nature of Journalism. People need to remember that reporters are not INVESTIGATIVE reporters. They print what they hear, or what's told to them by someone. They don't go searching for truth the way people seem to think they do generally nowadays, that's not their job. That's why there's a difference between a reporter and an Investigative Reporter. The latter would talk to Floyd's physician, his Uncle, and dig until the truth is known. Normal reporters report, and are onto the next story.

    True..until after the fight..then it has become common place to report that you fought through adversity. Example: Roy Jones vs. David Telesco. Example Shannon Briggs vs Imbragimov. Example Winky Wright vs. Sam Soliman. Floyd's no exception. He complains about his hands often and when he can back it up, he does.

    Boxing has as much propoganda as politics and the whole "fighting through adversity" excuses are very much a part of that propoganda. The whole idea that "it's reported if it happens." is naive. There is plenty of stuff that happens that is never covered and plenty of stuff that is covered that never happened. And that doesn't even take into consideration the half-truths and misleading info that is purposely "leaked" by a fighter's camp. Yes Floyd has hand troubles but there are maybe 4 or 5 people including Floyd and his doctor that really know what the extent of those troubles are from day to day or from fight to fight. I guarantee that you, I, and the reporters following Floyd know nothing more than Floyd wants us to know.
