Remember when he kicked out his entire camp over rights negotiations during the making of the first UFC video game? Dana has always hated Fitch.

Guys that have been successful against Mayweather are ones who take the fight to him and are capable of really pressuring him. Castillo did that fairly successfully and lost a close, disputable decision. De la Hoya did it for 4 rounds before he ran out of energy given that he was past his prime. Guerrero is an extremely aggressive fighter with a chip on his shoulder (he was still talking trash to Aydin in the post-fight interview after he beat him) -- he has the ability to get under Floyd's skin and force him in to a fight that he'd be uncomfortable with.

Zhuge1 wrote: For anyone interested, here's a rundown of Saturday's televised boxing:For anyone with WealthTV, there's a heavyweight fight on at 4pm from Liverpool, England featuring English prospect David Price (15-0) and two-time title challenger Tony "The Tiger" Thompson (36-3). Price is a big guy at 6'8" and packs a solid punch having stopped four top British fighters in his last four fights. Thompson is now 41 and coming off a title loss to Wladimir Klitschko. He's past his prime, but is an awkward left-hander with solid boxing skills.There is a 9pm card from Detroit televised on Showtime.The main event is an IBF light middleweight title fight. Cornelius Bundrage (32-4) defends against Ishe Smith (24-5). Bundrage is 39 and has really improved in his career over the past couple of years as he began working with the late Emmanuel Steward. In his last three fights, Bundrage has beaten Cory Spinks twice and also avenged an earlier defeat to Sechew Powell. While Bundrage has looked good, he's been largely inactive as he has only had three fights in the past three years. Smith is best known as a contestant on the first season of The Contender and originally came on to the scene as the chief sparring partner for Fernando Vargas. Smith lost controversially in The Contender and has mismanaged his career since then, turning down good money fights because he felt they weren't for "enough" and then losing fights against better opponents by simply going through the motions during the fight and not being busy enough with his punches.The co-feature is a middleweight fight between prospect J'Leon Love (14-0) and solid journeyman Derrick Findley (20-8). Love is a solid prospect but has been only lightly tested. Findley is a decent step-up for him and knocked out Ronald Hearns (son of "The Hitman" Thomas Hearns) in his last fight.At 10pm, there's a card from Huntington, New York which features a heavyweight fight between two undefeated guys. Malik Scott (35-0) takes on Vyacheslav Glazkov (14-0). Scott was a notable prospect several years ago that was featured on Showtime several times alongside Rocky Juarez and Julio Diaz as future stars, but while Juarez and Diaz have either fought for or won world titles (and in the case of Diaz retired) Scott has never taken a big step up against a solid contender. He's still only 32. Glazkov is coming off three very solid wins and has been in with the much better opposition and has a very solid amateur background having been part of the Ukranian Olympic team in 2008.The co-feature is a welterweight fight between prospect Chris Algieri (15-0) and Jose Peralta Alejo (10-1). Algieri has a solid win against Bayan Jargal. Alejo is from the Dominican Republic and hasn't beaten anyone of note.At 11:30pm UniMas has a card from California headlined by Chris Avalos (20-2) and Jose Luis Araiza (29-7-1) at super bantamweight. Avalos is a solid fighter with wins over Jose Nieves (who is headlining the Telemundo card on Friday), Kabir Suleymanov, and Yenifel Vicente. But, he's also lost to other prospects like Christopher Martin and Jonathan Romero. Araiza is now 34 and started off his career with a loss and then 29 straight wins. In his last 7 fights, he's got 6 losses and a draw. This should be a win for Avalos but Araiza can usually go rounds.The co-feature is a light heavyweight fight between Trevor McCumby (9-0) and Ricardo Campillo (7-5-1). McCumby is undefeated but untested. Campillo has been in with some solid young prospects, but has lost when stepping up.Also a few notable non-televised fights:In Mexico, former world champ Giovanni Segura (28-2-1) takes on Omar Salado (23-5-2).On a separate card, another former bantamweight and featherweight world champion Jhonny Gonzalez (52-8) makes his comback after losing his title when he takes on Eusebio Osejo (21-12-2).And, in Atlantic City, Patrick Majewski (20-1) takes on Jamaal Davis (14-8-1). Davis has been on NBC Sports in the past and Majewski is a rated contender at middleweight by a few of the organizations.

“Jose Aldo came out and said there's no way in hell I'm fighting Pettis,” White revealed following UFC 157. “He's absolutely refusing to fight Pettis; he doesn't think he deserves the shot.
“André Pederneiras (Aldo's coach) was in England and sat down with me and Lorenzo (Fertitto) and said we don't think he deserves it,” White said. “Well, he might be the number one guy at 155 (pounds), but how does that make him the number one (at 145 pounds)?“I wouldn't want to fight Pettis either,” White continued. “He's absolutely refusing to fight Pettis. The fight is on. He's going to fight Pettis or he's not going to like how this turns out.”
