Re: Who Should Mosley fight after he beats Cotto?
I am all about respect to the fighters and to the fans ( because fans see themselves in the fighters and take matters personally) but what's this supposed to be - a mind game kinda who's more over-confident or just a provocation to Cotto fans? It's a pitty that they ( the Cotto supporters do the exact same thang announcing Cotto's next fight as a psychological boost to the whole fanbase, talking about who will be Foty, P4P ratings in other threads)... The time passes and we all get heated up, soon we will call names to each other and both Mosley and Cotto are the more civilized guys you can ever find to start with... Bizarre stuff! People should shield their fears and doubts in the most sincere and direct away. I love Shane, the guy is a true class act, reminiscent of Henry Amstrong, Ray Robinson and the most explosive, creative and pleasant technicians in the Game but I am not about to dismiss Miguel Cotto who represents the future along with Diaz, Paul Williams, Bero and Ward, actually Miguel has shown more balls to fight a guy that Floyd is avoiding so much, handpicking others... To answer the question at hand, well, Shane is still the WBC interim welter titlist, isn't he? Therefore, the logical assumption is that Mayweather is making a voluntary defense against Ricky and whoever wins that one needs to keep that title fighting the mandatory challenger sooner the sooner the better... If Cotto wins, then there's no obligation for the WBC title holder to face him but both WBA WBC commissions should work out a unification fight before the IBF or the WBO get in the traffic line too...
