"Yeah, I know that Oscar is still a boxer who sells homes on pay-per-view," Cotto said in ever-improving English.

But a win over Mayweather would mean a win against the man perceived by most experts to be the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world. And that's what Cotto really wants. He's just not sure Mayweather wants any part of him.

"If you ask Floyd for a fight with him, he always has an excuse, you know?" Cotto said. "I'm not attractive for him. I don't represent too much money for him."

and as for mosley and margarito, he let all the relevant WWs at the time to beta each other up before taking on them the same thing he did against cotto. probably the same formula for pac once he decides to fight him.

Mosley got beat up while Floyd retired after Hatton? By whom?

The question is why would Floyd, who talked all this shit about how "one dimensional" Pac was......how easy this fight would be......how over hyped this "midget" is.....how Pac would give him his BIGGEST pay day.....why would he need to create his own special drug tests for such an easy fight that's worth so much money....win, lose or draw?

Some people are Hung up on the blood tests.....and not the fact Pac agreed to RANDOM TESTING from the start.....how many of those caught doping are caught with blood tests?
Floyd Mayweather Jr never said shit about Manny until Team Pacquiao started flip flopping about the testing. I don't care what Floyd Sr said after the Cotto fight. He doesn't matter.

Freddie Roach himself stated that Floyd wants OSDT and we said no problem, get him whatever he wants. The fight was a done deal and then Team Pac came back with the cut off offer. The first person to come out into the media regarding negotiations was Bob Arum who lied and said Mayweather never offered a cut off but the judge came out and said Arum lied and Arum had to admit Floyd did.

Manny Pacquiao himself said that he just didn't want to do a blood test the "day' of the fight. When he was told he had a 14 day window with no blood testing he said that was too close to the fight. What is one to think with that shit?

Considering none of their fights have been anything close to that one sided I'll gladly hold you to that bet kid.

Maybe some here in Esb will follow suit and finally see the light

good points. these flomos are so hang up with the first negotiations thta they forgot that it was all started with floyd and his camps accusations. besides, pac didn't reject the floyd test fully and is willing to get tested randomly by urine without any cutoff and blood test until 24 days cut-off and immediately after the fight.

and after that saga, we all knew that these test is really not floyd's main isssue when floyd still pulls out many demands and road blocks after pac fully agreed to this floyd test. floyd now wants all the PPV share, wants to take countelss vacations, has lost urge a couple of times and now could not fight because of a BS excuse of losing 15 pounds.

Absolutely terrible... coming from USA Today?!!! Opinionated AND unsupportive of it's own (American) fighter?! At least be neutral and simply quote what was actually said, but that should be it. **** "USA" Today! "USA" Today "don't know shit about boxing!"

you still won't get it? when the WW was waxing hot back in 2006-2009, all these relevant WWs at the time were fighting each other except floyd who is fighting either hatton, on vacation or marquez. when these guys have finished fighting each other, floyd takes on the scrap. hel pacquiao even took a legit WW threat in cotto much earlier in his 2nd year at the weight while floyd took 4/5 years to take one in mosley, who by that time was confirmed shot.

floyd is doing this time and tested formula to fight fighters on the slide or severely damaged. he is also trying to do it now to pacquiao.

you get beat up when you consistenty fights the best around your division. these guys were fighting each other up. mosley against vargas, collazo, cotto, margarito. same with cotto with quinatna, margarito, mosley, pacquiao. margarito with williams, cotto, pac, mosley.

floyd let these WWs beat each other up and takes on the scarps later all the while he is on vacation or taking on hatton, marquez or ortiz.

floyd is not boxer of the decade. he even has 4 fights in the last half decade alone. maybe the vacationer of the decade will do.

Cotto had just gotten beat up by Antonio and Joshua AND weighed in @ 145.

Who "confirmed" Mosley was shot?! Antonio? Ring Magazine?

I don't know who's ducking who, but you can't say one is acting scary and not the other. And, to say Manny's wins are more legitimate than Floyd's is just stupid.

Mosley didn't get beat up by Vargas, Collazo, Margarito, Cotto AT ALL.

Floyd was still calling for the fight after Mosley fought Vargas but Mosley said no. How is that on Floyd? Was that part of his plan too?

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPJhvYXKZK8[/ame] Video proof of Mosley turning down a Floyd fight for the second time and Puga still blames Floyd. Hilarious.
