I don't have a problem if they want to bill those bouts as a World title fight because you can make a strong case for Pacquiao being the best Welter in and around that time as for most of it Floyd was either inactive or at 154 with Cotto.

Did I see it as he was without a shadow of a doubt the best Welter on the planet? No. He'd have to fight Mayweather for that one. Obviously there are times you might not be able to work it out until two top fighters face each other. That's been the case throughout the history of boxing. Good to see the WBO have billed the next Pacquiao v Marquez belt as being for the "Champion of the Decade" belt. Guess they didn't want to miss out on a fee.
