Default Does Pacquiao Beating MAB Again Move Automatically Him Up P4P?

Regardless if he does it in devastating fashion.

Nigel Collins says yes, but in my book, no.

Pac already dismantled a fresher MAB back in 2003. He rematches a shopworn Barrera whose last impressive fight was against a clubfighter named Fana. He also lost his last fight to JMM. He is clearly not what he used to be.

Beating MAB is already par for the course. It is what's expected. Not the same can be said in the Mayweather-Hatton fight.

If he puts closure on the fight with Marquez and totally clean out 130 lb., only then will I really consider putting him at #1.

The same is expected for the Mayweather-Hatton fight... Whoever does not think Mayweather is expected to win is living in another world.

And no, he doesnt move to #1. He needs to beat Marquez decisively to be P4P #1 and Mayweather has to lose a fight to lose the #1 spot.

Why would I? He was getting beat around in some spots. He wasn't as sharp as he used to be. AND HE LOST.

That is the problem, the RING's rankings. Nigel Collins (RING editor) has stated that if Pac wins in devastating fashion, and if Floyd scapes past Hatton, he should move up to #1.

Both results are the consensus but there is no doubt it is by far easier to predict a Pacquiao victory than a Floyd landslide.

No. Beating MAB who is coming off a loss and already lost to Pacman will not move him up, and if it does, it shouldn't. Not unless PBF loses.

Love him or hate him, PBF fighting Hatton, a prime unbeaten lineal champion is better than fighting MAB at this stage in his career. A win over Hatton no matter how close (unless it's controversial) is better.

Barrera is going to win so it won't be an isue.

deffo not. If mayweather was fighting total scrubs and refusing to take on a dangerous opponent time and time again and pacman cleaned out the top guys in the same time period then maybe.
