I thought he didn't retire until 2010 and then came out of it for the Victor Ortiz fight? Did he retire twice?

Yup! He's fought 3 times in the last 4 years.

He 'retired' after the Hatton fight.

Why because he beat Zab? Zab was a pretty good win for Floyd but I'm sure no one would accuse him of ducking Baldomir if they didn't fight. Floyd made more money without Arum so I can't blame him for leaving Arum.

DLH win>>> win over Cotto and/or Marg

I asked Cotto the same thing at his apartment a few years ago around the time he was fighting Gomez and he said, " I can't force him to fight me "

At that time Mayweather wanted no part of either of them!!!

Good question TS...

Never remove this in each and every boxing fan's consciousness

It's simply the truth

A lot of people had a pre-Margarito Cotto winning against Floyd. I still wished that fight came off.

Floyd retired

and then Floyd came out of retirement and beat the man, Mosley who emerged as top dog following the Williams, Margarito, Cintron, Clottey title passing around

I mean i dont remember those 2 fight being that talked about until after Floyd retired not before he retired

and then soon after Floyd retired Cotto Margarito and Williams all lost

You got the thread title mixed up, it should be:

"Why didn't Floyd ever fight Cotto or Margarito?"

now, you have learned something about boxing
