I think FMJ deserves a tune up, a showcase fight, so to speak, then Sergio or Canelo.

Floyd chooses to fight once a year, and he even went on a "duck" vacation so he could avoid Margarito. It's his choice. There's no excuse to duck champions of his own division, like Antonio Margarito, Paul Williams, Manny Pacquiao and Saul Alvarez.

Except he never ducked Antonio Chetarito, Williams, Pac or Alvarez

Pac has refused the offer EVERY TIME. Fact.

Default Has Floyd ever ducked anyone? Nope

There is one universal fact- He has not ducked anyone

In 2006, Floyd fought Zab/Baldomir who were both ranked higher than Margarito. That is one fact that we must not ignore. People were actually opting for Floyd to fight Baldomir.

Baldo's credentials were also better than Tony's at that point and deserved the FIGHT way more than he did.

Anyways..

No way can you say that the guy who beat Kermit Cintron and was one/two fights removed from losing to Daniel Santos was a better fight than the #1 WW (Baldomir)

People say that Floyd ducked Cotto. Yes it is true that Cotto had his best win at WW against Shane and THEN he got stopped by Margaritto. Prior to that Cotto was a mid ranked juinor Welterweight who had beaten Malignatti/Urkal.

At that time, Floyd fought Ricky Hatton (Ranked higher P4P).

Young Margaritto

If he had fought Floyd at that time, peopld would be bashing it all night long. It would be received like Ghost/Mayweather. THERE WAS EVEN AN OUTRAGE WHEN PAC FOUGHT MARGARITO. FACT!

If Floyd had fought an UNKNOWN Margarito, people would be saying how Floyd ducked Hatton after Hatton called him out. Fact.

Margarito went from being a great fighter into a bum who was slapped by an old ass Mosley. FACT.

Properly? Yes.

Floyd has been extremely unlucky. If he was going to fight Pac that was blown out of the water.

He needed Cotto to fight Canelo... that didn't happen.

who cares, the only people who buy his PPV are these who wants to see him being
knocked out .... right now there is virtually nobody who can knock him out
so there is no point to convince anybody that the fight is worth of watching.

floyd says a lot of bull**** to sell whatever point he may be arguing at the time. he may argue the complete opposite an hour later just to sell a different hog. its the type of guy he is.

He ducked Margarito

Fighters he should have fought; Tszyu, Mosley before he was an OAP.

Anyone got the time to post the video of Tony confronting Joy?

Cotto when he was at 140/147

The most obvious Manny Pacquaio, oh and he couldn't even honour his catchweight fight with the much smaller fighter in JMM.
