Diaz-Okay, fair enough you're right.

Oscar. Pac was a heavy underdog and it was only after the fight that people started the weight drained talk. Good fight on paper. No scratch that. Awful fight on paper since Pac was supposed to get knocked out from the first left hand that landed.

Hatton-Again, on paper he was the number one 140lb fighter. Coming off win against Paulie.

Cotto- weighed 146 for his previous fight. He only had to lose one more pound to make 145.

Clottey-Solid win against a good fighter. No worse than Pascal, Abraham or Johnson wins.

Margarito-Same old Margarito we saw in the first Cotto fight. No noticeable loss of speed, agression, stamina, still able to take plenty of punishment. Always been a human punch bag, even when in his so called prime. Maybe there was something else missing though

Mosley-fair enough, you're correct.

JMM-The OP stated results don't matter. It's about quality of opponents regardless of results, so it's irrelevant.
I don't think that its unfair at all, its no criticism of Pac, he obviously has a great promotional team behind him.
