Floyd haters are funny. They say people only buy Floyd fight to see him lose. Well, Floyd must be fighting great fighters if people actually think he has chance to lose? I mean, if I was a hater and only watched Floyd to see him lose, I would not buy a ppv in which I thought Floyd was fighting someone who had no chance. Truth is these haters shit on Floyd's resume but secretly think he is fighting a threat and buy the ppv in hopes he loses.

Floyd always has been and always will be on a different planet than paq.

floyd is known as the most skilled boxer ever and one of the very best of all time.

while paq is a top 5/10 of this time, seriously

Pac beat same competition more impressively. DLH, Cotto, Hatton etc..

I think Floyd is going to be remembered as the guy who was scared of Pac, PBF avoided too many fighters.

Mosley = Past prime. Almost died in the 2nd round. Pac knocked him down and made his bitch for 12 rounds.

Marquez = Cheated the scales? If that 1 lb on Pac v Cotto matters, surely those 2 lbs mattered.

Hatton = fatton. 'nuff said.

ODLH = Good split decision win IMHO.

This is the reason why Flomos are completely laughable when talking about resumes. You don't even need to consider Pac at welter, Pac of lower weights shits on whole Floyd's resume.
Do we really need to go through this again.

Show one example of Mayweather getting KTFO?

Never mind by a rickshaw driver, and a Chinese waiter.

Even making allowances for the fact that Pactards are naturally stupid even you must be able to understand that there actually IS a difference between 154, and 145, so your Cotto , and ODLH analogies are retarded even for a fully paid up Pactard.

Right, but saying Cotto was drained -- despite him showing no signs of it in the fight -- isn't speculation?

Ok, so let me get this right - Cotto's nutritionist (who works for Cotto) gave consent to the 145 catchweight without bothering to make sure Cotto was cool with it. Come off it.

And of course Pac's lot initially suggested 143. Are you forgetting the time when this was made? You know, when Pac was still an unknown commodity at welterweight? When a catchweight was a given for that fight to happen? That's what people do in negotiations. They wanna' do and secure the most advantageous thing for themselves. Much like Mayweather, feeling dropping to 144 would harm his conditioning, decided to go against his word and do JMM over on the scales.

Scummy, eh? See above example with Mayweather. That's scummy. Being a career featherweight asking a welterweight to drop two pounds whilst he himself is coming up five (from a division he's only ever had one fight at), is not scummy. It's reasonable - as evident by noone (not the fans, not Cotto, not noone!) having an issue with it before, during and immediately after the fight.

Yes, Arum went to Cotto's nutritionist after Cotto turned down 143. Look it up.

I have said on multiple occasions that wht Mayweather did to Marquez was BS and it tarnished the victory. Hell I don't even really rate the win for Mayweather because of it.

The Cotto win, same logic applies. Cotto even said- once Arum finally had his puppet hands out of Cotto's ass- that cutting that weight for Pacquiao DID harm his body and he was not willing to do it again, which is why he turned the rematch down. That says a lot when someone like Cotto turns down a fight because he didn't want to go through the draining.

And again I ask you - Cotto had no say in it? Cotto's nutritionist, the who works for Cotto, ignored Cotto's pleas for it to be at 147 and set a deal for him to drop two extra pounds?

Right.

Cotto turned down the fight and bargained harder because he had more options on the table. One of them being a more lucrative fight with Mayweather which made the Pacquiao option not all that attractive. So, quite rightly, if he was to turn the Mayweather fight away for Pacquiao, they needed to have offered him something something worthwhile. Dropping down to 147 when he could remain at 154, was not worthwhile. That "sacrificing my body again" was him being insistent on not wanting to go below 154. In the three years since that Pac defeat, not once has he came out and said he felt weak because of the 145 catchweight.

And enough with nonsense about Cotto being too afraid to speak out when with Arum. After the Margarito scandal, his criticisms towards Margarito and Arum were not held back. Nor were his demands in the Margarito rematch - a 153 catchweight (after cheekily requesting 150 ) and threatening to pull out if the fight was moved from NYC.

Cotto was a company man LONG before Pacquiao was. Of course he isn't going to say no to Uncle Bob after he went behind his back to his nutritionist.

I think I'll go with what Cotto says in regards to how he drained himself for Pac, over what you THINK Cotto was thinking when a rematch was put on the table.

Thanks for the input though
