Yes you can clearly see that Cotto is a ducker at welterweigth where as Floyd's resume is littered with the top names

Mayweather never pushed for them. Neither did Arum.

How you determine the fault is up to your interpretation of various statements, rumors, and innuendos by those two liars.

The simple answer to this question is Floyd NEVER fought a top fighter int heir prime. There is a reason why Cotto and Marg both have fought better opposition.

Floyd doesn't want a war...he dodged kostya tyzu,dodged hatton at 140,and never wanted cotto or marg or PAC.and he don't want ***y Sergio as well,he basically avoids hard griding fights and cherry pics his opponents.his legacy will be tarnished cos everyone including his peers will be asking him these questions all his life.the fights that people want to see with Floyd are...cotto..Margo..***y Sergio and PAC..but he will never fight them..he can't look 50 cent in the eye after he looses to any of these guys.he thinks he is the greatest remember.he said he was better than Ali "

DLH win>>> win over Cotto and/or Marg
You can laugh all you want but the fact is that everyone WAS shouting for a fight with Baldo. He was considered better than Marg at that point.

But wouldn't it be on Cotto and Margarito to make the fight happen? I mean, wouldn't they be the challengers who would have to CHALLENGE Mayweather? At the time, Floyd was still the top dog, right? I don't see how he would not want to fight them. It doesn't make sense. Maybe I'm just naive or ignorant, but those guys (especially at the time) would be huge names to have on your resume.

I don't think so.

Especially if you need a DQ in order to beat Clottey who Margarito manhandled as well as his destruction of Cintron. Don't c who would have Baldo over Margo. Well Mayweather would put a clinic on Margo anyways.

He didn't fight Cotto because Cotto live in Puerto Rico.

He didn't fight Margarito because a fight between wern't to see who was the best.

Excellent video!
Thanks forposting.

It does show the frightened personality of Floyd. The video calls FLoyd "paranoid" for looking around for MArgarito for so long after he came by. But it is more than paranoia. FLoyd wants to make sure Marg won't do to him the kind of thing he knows he would do to MArg--like sucker punch him

ANd also explains why Floyd does what he does. He is a frightened guy who fears getting beat up unless he pulls all the rule breaking shit that he does. Too bad they don't enforce the rules wen he fights. AS against Gatti (see how well Gatti was doing until the sucker punch, then he was gone).

And even vs Ortiz, a very quick elbow from Floyd, to Ortiz' face got in and Ortiz prob trained for an instinctive immediate head butt reply for which he got caught.

But that video shows how terribly scared FLoyd is/was.
