personally, i would like the jmm fight more than ortiz. pac had already saw in cotto, clottey, mosley and margarito all the things ortiz can dish out but jmm would give pac what these guys won't and it was the stylistic advantage and for a closure either way, hopefully.
Sorry but I disagree here.... Pac JMM is a joke of a fight, its a mismatch, Ortiz vs Mayweather may be a mis match should Floyd go out there and be Floyd, but should that ring rust kick in, should that south paw style trouble him again it may end up being a very fun mismatch....

Sounds reasonable to me. As long as WADA approves whoever will do the work for the NSAC, why not?

Arum's issue seems to be with the USADA. So, just take them out of the equation and it sounds like we could have a fight.

Mayweather gets Pacquiao to do full testing.

Pacquiao gets to use someone other than the USADA to do the testing.

Seems like a good deal.

You think so? I think you're giving Pac ( if you're picking him to win )too much credit.

it's a mismatch only probably on paper. since the fight would be at welter where jmm is not proven. but size-wise, jmm-pacquiao is almost the same and i believe that jmm's style would give pac more challenge than ortiz who i say, needs more fights to hang out against the likes of pac and floyd. beating berto is good but if ortiz can beat guys on the caliber of cotto or margarito then, we can say that he would be a much better fight for floyd and pac.

Wait, you are giving Ortiz the benefit of the doubt that he might give Floyd a good fight, but not the same of Marquez to Pac?

Someone let me know when Ortiz becomes a Top-3 pound-for-pound fighter or when Marquez is broken by a Maidana or draws with a Lamont Peterson.

I like Ortiz. But, come on.

Best guess is that Floyd will fight Khan next and Pac will face Bradley next - and the winners and losers will then face each other.

If the majority here argue Floyd is afraid of Manny those same people who say Manny would destroy Floyd.
Then why is it so hard to think that Manny shouldnt be able to atleast mirror what Floyd did at the same exact catch weight?

Ortiz has a better shot in putting forth a better fight becuase Floyd has trouble with southpaws and Floyd has been inactive..

So there you have it....

My guess is that Pacquiao could face Cotto after Bradley (or vice versa). I'm not sure who Floyd would fight after he fought Khan. Maybe fellow Golden-Boyer Alvarez (who is pretty big but still green)?

lil floyd, the coward, will go his usual route, retire. Just like when Cotto and Margo were live dogs (and still are) at WW.

So it falls on one man does it. No chance of it being Pac ducks Floyd so he can now fight his new Top Tank BFF Bradley.

Who the hell has been calling for Floyd to fight Ortiz and Khan? Nobody. They are too inexperienced to beat Floyd and u know it. . The only fight that matters is Pac - Floyd, period.

Aren't you suppose to give the young up-n-comers a chance. Isn't that what boxing is about. You'd rather see the older fighters fight each other until their no longer in their prime? What kind of sense does that make? Floyd was only 17 fights deep by the time he got his shot. Should Genaro Hernandez have waited?
