It works both ways, the term 'flomo' is silly too.

Hey retard, you do realise all this Mayweather Pacquiao bullshit testing nonsense wouldn't be getting talked about still if your guy had just manned up instead of making X amount of excuses about it weakening him, but now all of a sudden he comes out in the press saying he's willing to take it

How people can defend PAC refusing the test for 3 years, I just don't know

Pacquaio fought a younger Cotto though.

It's a tough one.

Pacquiao v Cotto - Fought the fresher version, Cotto looked strong in there no matter what he (recently) or people said about his weight. His corner was not great.

Mayweather v Cotto - Fought a strong Cotto who in his previous bout was pushing back a bigger, stronger and heavier Margarito. Looked to have a very good training camp, and his corner was very, very good with Diaz in his corner.

Pacquiao v Margarito - Margarito didn't deserve the bout. However, he was still huge compared to Pacquiao in both height and weight. Skill level was night and day. But, when you are in there with a much heavier guy, and he rarely takes a backward step, it's a long night. Very good win taking in the factors in play IMO.

Mayweather v Mosley - A confident Mosley who had just stopped the unstoppable. He was an old Mosley though who had been feeling the pace in certain bouts previously. He had also been out of the ring for a long time, basically had two training camps in a row that may have played a part. He was a game Mosley who had success early, but didn't get a second wind until the latter rounds when he was already worn down by Mayweather. Good win.

Mosley is better than Margarito, but Mosley was inactive for over a year and Margarito had 17lbs on Pac. Floyd got rocked badly by a rusty fighter. PAC got hurt by a bodyshot from a much bigger fighter and gave Pac a better fight than the scared Mosley. Pac's win is slightly more impressive.

Pac's win against Cotto had 2 KDs, and was a dominating stoppage win. Floyd struggled against Cotto who was considered shot by his fans. Pac's win is again more impressive.

Draw, Pac fought a better Cotto
Floyd fought a Mosley who is better than Marg.

Good question. I would say Pac's over Cotto/Margarito.

Manny's win over Cotto was more dominant than Mayweather, and came earlier. There was no weight issue, despite what some have claimed in hindsight. Margarito was a middleweight on the night, probably more, and a decent one at that, so Manny's win is pretty extraordinary, from that respect.

Floyd's win over Cotto was less dominant. Mosley was overrated and a decade past his best at this stage and had been well beat on a number of occasions previously. He also hurt Floyd pretty badly early on.

I don't really, there's not much different. Four very good wins by any measurement.

3. Peterson was caught by VADA, not commission tests, he actually admitted to taking testosterone before the first Khan fight, which had commission testing.
4. Mayweather has never been forced to fight Pacquiao, I don't recall Pac being his mandatory at any point.
5. It is very very childish that people actually insult each other over their May/Pac preference.
135 to 142. He weight 142 vs dela hoya

Floyd, and fairly comfortably for me.

Margarito got smashed to bits by the very Mosley that Floyd defeated and was weight drained.

Floyd fought Cotto at a healthy weight with a better trainer.
