Cotto - Good win but with a weight stipulation
Clottey - Meh....coming off the back of a Cotto loss
Margarito - Shop worn and weight restricted
Mosley - Utterly shot to pieces....hadn't won a fight in 30 months
JMM - Lost
But you do agree it was a better 8 than Froch's?

As for the performances the argument was about the quality of opponents not the result/performance, so things like performances or the fact that Hatton was over matched is irrelevant.

I think the summary of opponents is unfair, they were better than you have suggested. Sometimes Pacquiao's achievements is his downfall.
