Maybe if Pac beat Cotto or Margarito THEN you might have a fight, but otherwise hell no.
Williams only had 3 title fights and lost 1 of them ... Cotto has a tough fight against Margarito and a big payday waiting against DLH ... those are two tough fights ... and Cotto could very much so lose to Margarito.
I don't think that those guys are really marketable foes ... and can't make PBF the 25m he's now demanding for a fight.
I don't think its a matter of how tough the fight is for PBF ... the money has to be right - first and foremost.
