but he went up to 147, gave up his belt and his ranking

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 WAS THE LAST CURRENT CHAMP MANNY FACED IN HIS DIVISION?? THATS RIGHT 2009 COTTO..IT IS 2012..SINCE 2009 FLOYD HAS FACED 3 CURRENT CHAMPION..3 CURRENT CHAMPION IN 2 DIFFERENT DIVISIONS
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

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.
you're*

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?

sorry i ment 154. i ment to say, mayweather vacated his belt to go up to 154.

So the current number one would be bradley.

Is that how it works?

Floyd still would have boxed circles around flat footed ass Margo with his cheating ass.

Ok fair enough. But you refuse to aknowledge the mess of boxing.

Floyd hasn't defended his belt in 13 months. He will soon stripped.

What happens next? Does he stay at number one?

But a prime Floyd is still a hell of a task...younger fresher faster Floyd....i dont know..still looks like a night mare for Mosley and Oscar
a part-time boxer part-time promoter oscar took on floyd who is right at his very prime and pulled out a SD.

What point are you trying to make? That if your more active, it makes you better? Pacquiao has done nothing since 2009 which is why he's hardly in anyone's top 3 p4p.
