All you need to do is look at who they fight and when they fought them. I can't recall the last time a Pacquiao fight wasn't a cherry pick. This includes the light punching Bradley.

we all know clottey took a dive

i take it that you haven't followed boxing before or just watch floyd fights?

it was well known that morales has all the options for the rematch thanks to murad muhamamd who made a bad deal for pacquiao and even had a deal where pac should be wearing winnign gloves instead of the usual cleto reyes taht he prefers.

Im a big fan of the sport, im currently an amateur, so dont ever categorize me with those nuthugging fans. My point was never about morales wanting the rematch or not. It the weight, becuase they knew morales would be at a huge disadvantage coming back down to 130 from 135. Lets remember he did fight morales coming off a loss to barrera the first, so when you take into account he fought morales coming off a loss twice, plus the weight draining and roach saying " he shot, his legs are gone, he has nothing left" it definitely looks like a cherry pick. I swear this Murad Muhammad was the guy who said he kept Pacquiao away from African American fighters

Pacquiao win over cotto was good, but he fought cotto at an unnecessary catchweight, and they only picked cotto because they felt he was damaged from the margarito fight. Freddie roach said in an interview to 97ruff "cotto took alot of punishment in that fight and hasnt looked good since that fight" so this is my about the cherry picking. Plus you claim mosley was already shot when floyd fought him but you forget to mention that pacquiao camp turned down a fight with mosley in 2009 because they fought he was too risky. Mosley didnt look shot in his previous fight before floyd against margarito. Funny how after mosley beats margarito and chases a fight with pacquiao but gets turned down by roach becuase roach said he was too dangerous but then as soon as mosley gets dominated by floyd and looks awful in a draw to mora, they are suddenly happy to fight him. Thats my whole point about cherry picking by pacquiao camp
Spot on, and that gentlemen is the essence of cherry picking. Refuse to fight a fighter when they are looking good coming off of a win, and fight them when they are coming off of a loss, or in the end of their career.

Puga for **** sakes.

The Mosley win for Pacquiao is no good because he had the chance to fight him in 2009 even at Mannyweight (143 lbs) for the REAL Welterweight belt.

Mosley said deal, let's do it.

Then Team pac said nevermind, and waited for Shane too look like crap before signing to fight him. Pathetic duck job

accidently voted Floyd but meant Pacquiao

Actually I don't think any guy has really cherry picked though,but if I had to answer id say pac. Most of the fights people wanted Floyd to make he just couldn't get,Mosley ducked him in the earlier years and his feud with top rank has stopped a lot frm happening as well..I applaud Pac for fighting Bradley though,my only issue is all the catchweights.

To be fair, Mosley turned Floyd down in 2005/06

So Floyd became the lineal welterweight champ by beating #1 and #2 at the time, then beats Oscar at 154 coming off a win, KOs an undefeated Hatton, and sent Shane and his tooth on a vacation. But because he didn't fight punk ass Margarito, Pactards say he cherry picked. Now I've heard it all. Cotto today at 154 is better than Cotto then at 147 so to me that's a non-issue.

Can we just all get along?

Both men had fights that were strategically selected and had a reason why they were fought at the time they were fought.

Both men had their share of a stint in the lion's den and fought everyone that needs a whooping.

This has been going on for years.

At what time, you mean when baldomir was the champ? What about when Cotto, Margo and Shane were the top ?

Oh, Floyd went on 'vacation.'

Floyd called out Shane like in 2004 or something , before he even moved up to welter. He wasn't even a PPV star. Shane was calling him out for years, ever since he moved up and fought Oscar. Try again
