    Farhood: Mayweather Struggles With Spence, Crawford, Thurman
    Showtime Boxing's broadcast analyst, Steve Farhood, believes at this point former five division world champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. would struggle against the very best fighters in the welterweight division.

    Mayweather, 40 years old, snapped a two-year retirement back in August - to fight UFC superstar Conor McGregor, who was making his pro debut.

    McGregor did well in the first three to four rounds, but he was broken down and stopped in the tenth round.

    The victory over McGregor raised Mayweather's record to a perfect 50-0, which allowed him to break the undefeated record of heavyweight great Rocky Marciano.

    Mayweather, who retired following the contest, received a lot of heat for the fight.

    Most fans and experts felt that he should have faced a top level fighter to reach a 50-0 record.

    But Farhood explains that there simply wasn't enough money to face a top level boxer - when Mayweather stood to earn well over $100 million for a much easier fight against McGregor.

    "I think he’s in an unusual position and I say that because the average fighter would kill for a $30 million dollar pay day, that’s money that Keith Thurman, Shawn Porter or Terence Crawford could very well never see, but for Floyd, a $30 million dollar pay day just doesn’t turn him on. The McGregor fight was perfect for him because he was basically against a guy who had never fought before and he was handed somewhere between $100 and $200 million dollars. That’s not going to happen against any boxer we know," Farhood told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

    And if he did take a pass on McGregor and fought a boxer on the level of a Keith Thurman, Terence Crawford or Errol Spence - Farhood believes the former pound-for-pound king would struggle in the right.

    "I think he probably struggles against the very best, against Keith Thurman, Terence Crawford or Errol Spence. I don’t think it’s as easy as it used to be. Floyd is a fighter who relies a lot on reflexes and on his athletic ability, and just a very small diminishment in his skills could really affect him. We saw with Oscar De La Hoya and Roy Jones, when these fighters who are superior athletes lose that half second of timing, it can bode very badly for them," Farhood said.

    "I think we may be at that point with Mayweather — it’s a little difficult to tell strictly from the McGregor fight, but he is forty and there’s nothing to say that he couldn’t lose that half second in reflex time, and I think there’s a good chance that that’s happened."

    What say you boxing fans?

    If he doesn't get caught, I say Floyd could win on points against Thurman & Porter because they have stamina issues. Spence & Crawford would cause problems for Floyd tho. And

    Goddammit...


    My aunt called me about an hour ago. My uncle is in ICU at U of M hospital. His liver is either failing or has failed completely and they got him on life support. I had to call my little sister and my moms to let 'em know. Sis is already at the hospital on her way up to see him. My uncle is only 9 years older than me and he's more of a brother than an uncle. We just spoke a little over a week ago just kicking it and joking around and shit, talmbout how he was gonna come out with my grandmother and we were gonna hit up Vegas. He told me he had been in the hospital recently for a hernia but now this shit happened.

    We're on our way back home in a few minutes. I'll prolly be on a flight out to Detroit by late tomorrow night or early as shit Wednesday morning and will be in Detroit and Saginaw at least until Thanksgiving. My uncle has been taking care of my grandmother who has Alzheimer's, so if he takes a turn for the worst I'll prolly end up bringing her back with me.

    Praying for your uncle and family bro.
