Garcia is the lineal champion at that weight. What big names did Hatton spark out in 2007? Tsuyu (Way past his prime)/Castillo? Urango? Collazo @ 47?
He deserves it more than Hatton did at 07.
Also, he has unfinished business at 140. Even if Matthysse is overrated he's the big name there that has been calling him out. Some people would overlook 'ducking' if he moved up to fight a better fighter in Mayweather of course, but I'd see it as a cash out move. There's been no talks about it or him moving up, and I just can't see it happening and not being a lot of complaints. Finish off Lucas, and if you want to move to 147 permanently it makes sense. If it's just a one fight deal to get Mayweather, **** that. Mayweather shouldn't get away with taking that fight, and Danny shouldn't get away with not fighting Lucas first.
