Good point.

My first thought, without regard to date, is PBF-Cotto. Big draw, good recent win, promotional free agent, supposedly met or was going to meet with Team Floyd in December 2011 in Vegas at the WBC annual convention.

Also, if Floyd beats Cotto, then that lessens Cotto's value for Pac-Cotto II. So, you get to possibly hurt your rivals.

It makes a lot of sense. Floyd needs a big draw to work with after the Ortiz fight. Cotto is the perfect guy here, IMO.

Of course he isn't...he's not been interested in PBF/Manny on any date. Your boy and his team have taken ducking to an entirely different level. WTF Arum mean...not interested, how the **** are you not interested in the fight? After all the bullshit he's spread about PBF/GBP/etc now he's "not interested", ****ing pathetic...seriously.

They don't need Floyd anymore. When they thought they needed him, they wanted him. Now, the shoe is on the other foot.

You think Arum is going to give Floyd a faded Pac and a big payday?



Remember: This is a business.

Now, if Floyd looks faded in his next outing, then Arum will start talking Pac-Floyd for Nov 2012.

This is how it works. Ask the Mayweather crew how they felt about facing Pac after Pac-Cotto.

I'll guess Alvarez or Cotto. I'd love to see the latter.

Uncle Oden convinced me on my first instinct:

Mayweather-Cotto on May 5, 2012

The biggest irony is, just about ALL the rabid Floyd fanboys post how Pac only wants guys that lose, or look bad in their last fight. And now they are watering at the mouth for this fight since Pac looked bad in his last fight.

I really don't see how these fools aren't aware of their own stupidity.

I hope it's Cotto at 154, but you better add Lamont Peterson to the list. It would screw with things for two of Floyd's potential future opponents in Pac and Khan.

So the shoe is on the other foot now? As in Floyd NEEDS Pac?

Here are some facts:

Pac just got schooled by a guy Mayweather dominated after a 2yr lay off 2 years ago.

Floyd makes more money than Pac against common and any opponent he fights, and will definitely now.

The boxing world now pretty much decisively sees FLOYD as P4P #1 after Pacs showing against Marquez.



It is Pacquiao that badly needs to fight and beat Floyd right now to restore the aura of invincibility he had before Marquez BEAT him again.

So you are co-signing that Manny doesn't need Floyd, shouldn't fight Floyd, and is faded? This is sad shit dude, and I'm honestly shocked at you taking this position, you are cool with the duck.
