You asked me which could have potentially happened, and they are the ones.

williams and margo imo.

I'd love to see how floyd would have faired against the margo that beat cotto. That would have been a great fight.

I had Mayweather winning the first Castillo fight by two points and I despise Mayweather.

id rather watch a great fighter fight once a year and take on a tough mofo

then 2 or 3 times a year fighting cherry picked fighters

edit: but if your fav fighter is doing the latter you will always get enjoyment watching him blow some poor guy out of the water

By your logic. A fighter could avoid manny and floyd, fight and beat Bradley. And his fans could say. He doesn't need to fight Manny and Floyd. He fought the Best in Bradley.

Just cos your number one. It doesn't mean your the best.
Bradley didn't beat the number 1 guy. He beat the number 2 guy and that is a fact. Floyd beat the number 1 ranked guy in the division which was Mosley. He beat Ortiz after that. Manny fought a guy who wasn't ranked at 147 and was giving a gift. (JMM) Try again brah.

yes he was sorry got a little mixed up (hard to imagine seeing as this gets talked about everyday)

MARGO and his ****ing bricks...how long did he use them how good would he be witout them. I got big issues with margo to the point where is non existent in my fantasy matchup talks.

who cares about a champion when floyd fought them when that division is weak. fought ortiz as a champion when the WW was already weak. fought cotto at 154 when 154 is weak. besides floyd did not fought the real man at the weight. fought jmm and made him move up two divsions and still cheated him off the scales. mosley, both floyd and pac fought a shot version.


since 2008, floyd fought:
2008: vacation
2009: marquez @144 (floyd failed to make the catchweight)
2010: mosley @147
2011: ortiz @147
2012: cotto @ 154

since 2008, pac fought:
2008: marquez2 @ 130 lineal
2008: diaz @135
2008: delahoya @147 (pac jumping 2 divisions and underdog)
2009: hatton @140 lineal
2009: cotto @145
2010: clottey @147
2010: margarito @150
2011: mosley @147
2011: marquez3 @144
2012: bradley @147

The Margo that beat Cotto had plaster in his handwraps.
Would you really love to see how Floyd would have faired against a cheater that was currently cheating?
Isn't it a bit unfair that in order to give a fighter credit he has to fight someone with an unfair advantage?
