I agree with all of your points , but its the Floydettes who this is targeted at.

The brave Floyd fighting a man at 154 , when others fought him at 145 and drained the shit out of him 3 years ago.

They cannot have it both ways.

peace

I dont believe it if that is the only source, I cant find any other report on this so its probably just an error in the text.

But it's not true. The source you've provided is not reliable.

I admit that's been pretty funny. "Pac fought a weight-drained damaged goods Cotto!...This one is...heavier...er...AND MORE CONFIDENT! Floyd bests Manny again! "

I hope not.

I liked the idea of floyd taking on the best lmw at the lmw limit.

I know catchweights have been frequently utilised throughout history so i'm not saying floyd deserves and overt criticism for it, i'm just saying it saddens me when catchweights are utilised.

If both weigh at 150 i'd see it as a lmw fight but if they do like pac and weigh in at 146 or whatever than it might as well have been a ww fight.

Would it detract from the victory? Slightly. Would it be enough for me to say the winner is not the premiere lmw? No.

We will just have to wait and see , this was released 6 hours ago, but to list a weight rather than just saying WBC light middle tells me it maybe true.

Maybe ray can write up a piece on boxingnews24 to back it up.

However I wasnt that convinced by Floyd , who although he dropped JMM , didnt really hurt a man who was just a bloated super feather. Yes he won every second of every round , but then so would the other 147 champs, but they would probably have stopped JMM.

i would not be surprised. floyd wants the 144 catchweight against marquez hidden from media also but GBP won't allow it. if both cotto and floyd weigh too low at around 150 or 151 there is probably a hidden catchweight clause not intended for public consumption.

Yeah cause that's a reputable news source.

No real news source has reported this. If it IS true, I've lost all interest I had in this fight and the credit I was giving Floyd is now gone. But I wanna wait until a real web site says something.
