There is one universal fact- He has not ducked anyone
In 2006, Floyd fought Zab/Baldomir who were both ranked higher than Margarito. That is one fact that we must not ignore. People were actually opting for Floyd to fight Baldomir.
Baldo's credentials were also better than Tony's at that point and deserved the FIGHT way more than he did.
No way can you say that the guy who beat Kermit Cintron and was one/two fights removed from losing to Daniel Santos was a better fight than the #1 WW (Baldomir)
People say that Floyd ducked Cotto. Yes it is true that Cotto had his best win at WW against Shane and THEN he got stopped by Margaritto. Prior to that Cotto was a mid ranked juinor Welterweight who had beaten Malignatti/Urkal.
At that time, Floyd fought Ricky Hatton (Ranked higher P4P).
If he had fought Floyd at that time, peopld would be bashing it all night long. It would be received like Ghost/Mayweather. THERE WAS EVEN AN OUTRAGE WHEN PAC FOUGHT MARGARITO. FACT!
If Floyd had fought an UNKNOWN Margarito, people would be saying how Floyd ducked Hatton after Hatton called him out. Fact.
Margarito went from being a great fighter into a bum who was slapped by an old ass Mosley. FACT.
