‘Who’s Rich Franklin?’: Floyd Mayweather Gets His Last Shots in Before Saturday’s Face-Off

Floyd Mayweather Juan Manuel Marque
(Floyd knew he should have thrown paper.)

Update: These quotes are fake, apparently. Sorry, guys.


Two can play the "never heard of you" game. This Saturday will see the pay-per-view faceoff between UFC 103 and Mayweather vs. Marquez, and after Dana White dismissed the upcoming boxing match as "the fight that nobody cares about," Floyd went to cagereport.net to drop some bombs of his own. Some highlights…

On Rich Franklin: "Who’s Rich Franklin? There’s 8 year old kids just starting out in my gym who punch better than that guy. I’ve seen that guy try to punch and felt sorry for him, embarrassed for him – I think Roger [Mayweather] still has some spaces left in the beginners class, might want to get the basics down before he goes head to head with me. I mean come on, until he generates a revenue of 2.5 million he don’t even deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as Floyd Mayweather let alone be trying to compete with me."

Brock Lesnar: “The main difference between Boxing and MMA is the fact that boxing is a real sport and requires skill to reach the top. When you watch boxing you know you ain’t [going to] see some WWE clown walk in and take the belt after a couple fights. It ain’t happening. That’s because it takes years to perfect and master the sweet science, MMA is nothing more than a sideshow act that probably won’t even be around in 10 years time. Boxing ain’t going anywhere, write that down."

On Mayweather vs. Marquez: "What you’re getting here is two of the best pound for pound fighters in the world going at it to determine who is number one, what they got there is two journeymen, bar room fighters who can’t tell a fish hook from a check hook…I’m gonna give the people at home something to talk about the next day; everyone is going to be talking about the Floyd Mayweather fight that was on last night. Ain’t gonna be no one talking about those two guys who rolled around on the floor for 3 rounds. That’s why I was and still am the PPV king."

On Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic: “I think he forgot he has a right hand, give him a pair of 12 ounce gloves and Vlad Klitchko would tear up that ass in seconds."

On Tim Sylvia: "Look, I just watched an ex-UFC heavyweight champ, some overweight unathletic chump get one-punched by an over the hill broken boxer, Mercer. Don’t get me wrong, I love Big Ray but his best days are behind him and he one punched an ex-champ, what more do I need to say? Just imagine what happens if a heavyweight contender lays hands on a MMA fighter. We both know what the aftermath will look like.”

On the financial disparities between boxing and MMA: "If so many people want to watch those guys fight then why isn’t Dana White paying them like it?"

Okay, so he’s got a point with the money thing, and I’m impressed that he even knows who Cro Cop is, but still, this guy needs to be humbled, old country way. Come on JMM, we’re counting on you…

Wow. Once again something posted on CP that is completely fake.

@ BEAM

You're right. Still...

@ UFC Fan

To the first correction, it's TOO bad, not TO bad. Learn english.

Secondly,

"why don't you correct it then grammer nazi?
are you such a fan of his that the only way to defend the words he says is try to find flaws in what I typed? hows that working out for you?"

It's grammAR, not grammER. I'm not a fan of mayweather or boxing. Similarly, I'm not a fan of ignorant racist fuckers like you. How's being a dumb fucking hick working out for you? Learn english.

If this dickhead was so eagle eyed, how can he not see that striking is a toally different game in MMA? Rich's strikes look awkward through the eyes of a boxing purist; but, the way he does it keeps him on his feet. Anderson Silva vs Mayweather? To hell with that. It'd just give him a list of excuses of why he lost. I say give him Faber, or Yamamoto then show him what a choke looks like in instant replay when he wakes up.

im so sick of the boxing vs mma debate.. THEY ARE TOTALLY DIFFERENT SPORTS! Are we going to compare football and rugby?? Is the strongest rugby player going to succeed in the nfl?? WHO CARES! mma has their champions.. boxing has their champions.. BOTH sports have their shitty fighters and everyone else lands somewhere in between..

Why cant we be fans of BOTH sports?? seriously, lets just drop it already!!!

one_adam12- September 15, 2009 at 9:40 am
Fuck Mayweather! Honestly, who watches boxing anymore? Boxing has definitely declined! As for Brock! How the hell can you sit there and bash your own sport? You're not good at anything but wrestling! If it wasn't for that and your size you wouldn't be shit! You fucking cocky mailbox-headed cocksucker! I'm sure I'm not the only one that hopes this, but i hope Shane Carwin knocks your fucking teeth down your throat and makes you choke on all these bullshit things you always have to say!
halfbreed23- September 15, 2009 at 9:31 am
He's obviously a fan of MMA. That's the only explanation on how he would know so much about the fighters. There really should be no comparisons between boxing and MMA as sports as they are so incredibly different. He's right about Franklin from a boxing standpoint. He's also right about Brock Lesnar. There's not a professional wrestler on this planet that could get a belt in their weight class in boxing.

Imagining what would happen to Floyd in an MMA match is silly. Of course he'd lose those that he didn't KO the guy early but those same people would stand 0 chance against Floyd in a boxing match. I guess it makes you feel better to imagine them.

Floyd could lose Saturday but I have a feeling he'll be hurting your ears with the undefeated bravado he spits out now.
Jugger- September 15, 2009 at 9:08 am
Mayweather is right about Rich Franklin. I can't stand to watch Rich strike. A fight between him and Keith Jardine might throw me into an epileptic seizure.
yerdoneson- September 15, 2009 at 9:08 am
@ one two
not that im a huge lesnar fan, but if he were in boxing he would have fought 10-20 clowns/tomato cans/"opponents" to pad his record and then would get a big fight. instead he took on legit competition right off the bat and for the most part dominated. lesnar fan or not, those are the facts. floyd also fails to mention that lesnar was an ncaa runner-up and champ.

i would love to see floyd get in the ring with someone who had good muay thai. god damn. he would eat shin on the first punch he slipped

@jimbonics,

Just ignore the trolls. They do it for attention, don't give it to them.

why don't you correct it then grammer nazi?

@ UFC Fan

"who gives a flying fuck what this nigger says?
And BOYS if you don't like the word nigger to bad.
Nigger is about uneducated stupidity..."

If you cannot type out proper grammar, you likely shouldn't be spouting off on 'uneducated stupidity'.
C-Bus Allstar- September 15, 2009 at 8:53 am
I have to disagree. Put some 12 ounce gloves on Anderson Silva, and watch Mayweather get owned.


Sure they aren't even in remotely close weight-classes, but fuck it.
BEAM- September 15, 2009 at 8:53 am
Dana jokes about Marquez being a nobody, but real boxing fans know better. He's no slouch and is probably the best challenger Mayweather has ever faced. He was definitely the toughest Pac-Man ever faced.

Dana is right that it isn't the fight everyone wants to see, but it's still better than the UFC 103 main event.
Ouch That hurts- September 15, 2009 at 8:48 am
Listen, I can't believe I'm defending Lesnar but, he's not some WWE clown. He has spent years in REAL wrestling, before starting MMA. There, I said it, now I need to take a shower, I feel unclean...
Angled Dangle- September 15, 2009 at 8:47 am
RUMOR - Dana White is in negotiations with Mayweather for a one time deal. Dana drove to the Jack-In-The-Box to rehire Kalib Starnes, as Mayweather's opponent. The will be presenting a jogging exhibition in the octagon. Date is tentatively scheduled, perhaps UFC 107.
RearNakedPoke- September 15, 2009 at 8:46 am
@ UFC fan...i agree, all race's have there N-words. and if black ppl have such a problem with it then why do they use it all the time? i dont like the word "pound for pound" cause its pointless to argue a person being better than someone just smaller. well in my book...best fighter is best fighter!
CJ- September 15, 2009 at 8:46 am
Floyd says some retarded stuff, but it's all a part of his persona and promoting his fights. He makes tons of money as a result of all the shit he talks so all of you getting riled up over it are being more retarded than he is.

The man is undefeated and certainly one of the greatest boxers to ever live. Yes he'd lose an MMA match to most MMA fighters, but there's not a single MMA fighter in the world who would stand a chance in a boxing match with him. They are two different sports.

I'm much more looking forward to Mayweather's return to the ring than UFC 103. The card isn't that great, get over it.

That being said, I won't pay a dime to watch either of them.
