Disney's 'Planes' coasts on cliches

Don't get too pumped about Mayweather


Floyd Mayweather is coming back, Wholesale NFL Jerseys but for how long?


Mayweather continued his flirtation with boxing and its fans this week, announcing he'll fight World Boxing Council welterweight champion Victor Ortiz in midSeptember. That will represent nearly 16 months since his last fight, a significant layoff but much less than the 2 years he took off from 2007 to 2009.


Some of the tea leaves would indicate that this could mean the unbeaten fighter has an eye on Manny Pacquiao in 2012 in what would be the most lucrative bout of all time.

Floyd Mayweather is coming back, but for how long?


Mayweather continued his flirtation with boxing and its fans this week, announcing he'll fight World Boxing Council welterweight champion Victor Ortiz in midSeptember. That will represent nearly 16 months since his last fight, a significant layoff but much less than the 2 years he took off from 2007 to 2009.


Some of the tea leaves would indicate that this could mean the unbeaten fighter has an eye on Manny Pacquiao in 2012 in what would be the most lucrative bout of all time.


As with many superfights, it would occur when both fighters are technically past their peak. Mayweather will be 35 in 2012, Pacquiao 33.


It didn't escape the notice of Pacquiao trainer Freddie Roach that Ortiz is a southpaw like his charge, as well as an action fighter.


No one can compare to Pacman, but of all the welterweight candidates, Ortiz is the closest you'll get.


But don't get too excited about the possibility, this is a cheap nfl jerseys tuneup for much bigger things. There are still several factors and obstacles in the way.


One is easy to dispense with. Juan Manuel Marquez may have given Pacquiao fits in two previous fights south of 130 pounds, but in an over140 bout in November he'll show plenty of heart but not threaten to win.


It's on the Mayweather ledger that things get cloudy.


The Ortiz bout is sandwiched between a misdemeanour battery trial and a more serious preliminary hearing for felonies in an alleged incident involving the mother of two of his children. The latter case could involve prison time.


Also needing to be settled is a defamation suit that Mayweather is facing after strongly hinting that Pacquiao has used nonnatural means to rampage up the weight classes (This has depressingly become de rigueur previously unbeaten Andre Berto wondered on Twitter days ago just how Ortiz could be so physically strong in their recent fight).


There's also the possibility that Mayweather is back in the ring mostly for cash and not the purposes of enhancing his ring legacy in the shape of a career coda against Pacquiao.


In addition, anyone following Mayweather on Twitter knows that he uses large sums of money for betting on basketball, among other things.


It will be good to see Mayweather back in the ring, and the matchup with Cheap Jerseys Ortiz should Wholesale Jerseys provide some compelling moments.


But beyond that, it's foolhardy to say.


What else to make of reports this week that HBO's Boxing After Dark received its highest ratings in four years for a decision win for Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. over Sebastian Zbik last week?


Zbik is an unknown quantity and his Cheap Jerseys opponent, the son of ring legend Julio Cesar Chavez, has been much maligned for taking the long (very long) road to respectability, feasting on all sorts of flotsam and engaging in a terrific stinker on the biggest stage of his career (the fight before PacquiaoMiguel Cotto in late 2009).


Some thought he lost to Zbik in a bout for a 160pound trinket, but I thought it was a clear cut win for the Mexican. The Hungarian Zbik may have been aggressive to a degree in the early rounds, but how effective can it be when you can't crack an egg? As well, Chavez took his will in the late rounds with his attack downstairs.


It was a pretty terrific fight considering the limitations of the fighters involved.


So it appears HBO has an attraction on their hands, but he has to be matched extremely carefully. The network was able to get a ton of mileage out of Arturo Gatti, but the late brawler had legitimate punching power.


Not so with Chavez, and it's hard to see him having a long shelf life. The problem with Junior is that he's too physically big for his style and his talent level. He weighed 180 pounds at fight time against Zbik but fights like a lowerweight fighter, digging to the body and engaging in the trenches.


He's fortunate to be dealing in a division that aside from Sergio Martinez is fairly thin. It's hard to imagine him lasting the distance with Martinez or any of the super middleweights just a few pounds north, including Montreal's Lucian Bute.


Carl Froch put forth his third consecutive strong performance on the weekend with a clear decision win over Glen Johnson (one judge had it a draw, which was offbase).


The Super Six super middleweight tournament will come to an end this fall with Froch taking on unbeaten American Andre Ward.


Froch throws punches in bunches and always adapts to what's presented him in the ring. The fact he's full of piss and vinegar outside the ring and has a "glamour model" girlfriend, as they're called in the UK, doesn't hurt.
