My theory is that Floyd got a rib injury and thus the fight was postponed Grin

Common sense has pre-vailed, its not like david hayes injury wheres its his back so its hard to confirm, its his ribs, whether there broken, bruised or what ever else may be wrong, the injury would either be visible or show up on scans, its not something he can just 'fake'

A lot of assumptions and guess work there about Floyd and his decision to fight ODLH. Given that Oscar gave Floyd one of his hardest fights and it was a split decision I don't think he was that shop-worn.

This was written by Doug Fischer in his mid-week mailbag



Floyd damaged the cartilage of part of his rib cage, presumably from a body shot in sparring, but there were no details given as to the cause of the injury. Rib cartilage injuries can occur during weight training, high-impact boxing exercises like heavy bag work, or even strenuous calisthenics like push ups.

As someone who’s suffered a rib cartilage injury (from a body shot in sparring almost 15 years ago) I can tell you that it’s very painful. It actually hurts worse than a cracked or fractured rib bone. If you sneeze too hard you’ll be brought to your knees in blinding pain. Mayweather’s not one of my favorite folks in the sport but I feel for him if he’s got a bad cartilage injury, because they take a long time to heal.

Richard Schaefer tells me Mayweather is in a lot of pain. How long the pain lasts will determine when he can return to the gym, which will determine how soon his fight with Marquez can be rescheduled. Obviously, Golden Boy Promotions would like to postpone the fight to September 19, the Saturday of Mexican Independence Day weekend. But that might not happen if Mayweather is unable to train properly soon enough. (I would guess that he needs a clearance from his specialist to resume camp by the start of August for the September date to be a realistic goal).

Regardless of the date the fight falls on, Marquez will not be able to fight an interim bout. Both Mayweather and Marquez are contractually obligated to get it on this year.

One good thing that might come out of this postponement is a better undercard. Zab Judah-Matthew Hatton (yawn) is still on it. But the other bouts that were talked about had not been made yet. The proposed Winky Wright-Enrique Ornelas bout was OK; we’ll see if that gets done and if it’s held for the new date. However, if Rocky Juarez pulls out his rematch with Chris John (which I doubt) and Victor Ortiz is able to overcome Marcos Maidana (no easy task) without sustaining too much damage, either or both of those Mexican-American fighters could find themselves on the Mayweather-Marquez undercard.

Have you seen the proof yourself? Haye's injury was apparently x-rayed/scanned or whatever but these documents are never released to the public.

Ill give you 3 guesses Skav..... All Im saying that if he was faking a rib injury, this would become apparent when checked out by a doctor, whereas a back injury such as haye's is much harder to pinpoint. If Mayweather was going to fake an injury, why say its the ribs, you'd go for something along the lines of the back which makes it hard to prove otherwise

Firstly I am a Floyd fan but........................................... We all know Floyd has an issue with boxing legit Welterweights.

The day after the Cotto fight and the day after Arum annouces its likely to be Manny v Cotto, Floyd mysteriously gets this rib injury.

Heres a thought. If Floyd and JMM would of gone ahead in July,  it would of left Mayweather free to fight again around November, December time. However, as November is being touted as the date of the Manny v Cotto fight, Floyd would of been left with very few options around that time, and to face anyone other than Mosley would show Floyd as a bit of a coward.

By Floyd getting injured and pushing the fight with JMM back to September, it doesnt leave too much time before Manny and Cotto become available again, thus having a good excuse to avoid Mosley.

I think Floyd would beat all 4 of those mentioned but it still dont hide the fact he picks and chooses.

I do believe Mayweather has offered Mosley a bout 2 or 3 times in the past, yet now Mosley needs Floyd the classic 'Mayweather's ducking him' card gets played. I'm not convinced.

Maybe your not aware of this but PBF adds light heavyweights in his sparring sessions. Not sure which boxer actually did this to him , it could of been a boxer at his own weight landing a great punch or a light heavyweight that was very strong , we dont know since he always closes the door when its time for serious training.

wow... i could just imagine what a wake up call it would be if it came from a straight left while he was shoulder rolling.

They never run out of reasons saying why it won’t happen. But the truth is they don’t want the fight, and they say so many nasty things about me. But I don’t mind. I won’t even say anything bad against them. Let’s show them that Filipinos know how to respect people,” Pacquiao to PhilStar
