im not saying it doesnt matter to me who floyd fights, because i dont want to see him fight no easy fights...i was saying that , to me, it doesnt matter who he fights, people will still find something wrong with the opponent when he wins. the pac fight needs to happen NOW. these other guys are good, but i dont see them hanging with floyd other than a lucky punch.

Beating a guy that lost to trout and had trouble with Matthew hatton is not that impressive if we're being honest



Let's see him to that to Thurman Oh wait he won't fight him lol

Canelo was tailor made for fraud

He never had a chance

I like this video. It feels like you're there. You can really feel like you can see what both fighters are thinking in there

Both Clottey and Margarito would lose to Canelo at 154 pounds, and it wouldn't even be close. Making the comparison as you did is a joke.
Agreed - Margarito was absolutely horrible above 147 and Mosley showed why.. Margartio at 154 loses his size and strength advantage above 147. At 154 his come forward punching style would only make him a punching bag, and he is least likely to wear bigger and stronger fighter down with his pressure style because of his lack of foot and hand speed.

Clotty would only cover up at 154 and lose by points

2lbs doesn't mean anything in this matchup. Canelo is a boxer puncher not a pressure fighter. This fight was a boxing exhibition from both fighter's. Floyd just had too much variety and tools in the bag for the young champ. Looking at the video above clearly shows how skilled canelo is.

Actually it's 9th and 10th because PAC skipped 115 and 118.

Wait I thought when PAC fought Cotto, Cotto was very drained and not at his best because of the 2lbs he lost. In fact it was so bad that Cotto was still undefeated .

People are foolish to think 1 or 2 lbs is going to make a huge difference especially given the large amount of time a fighter has to prepare for a championship fight.
