Trout is a chicken. Ain't no champ gonna want to fight this awkward runner. I'll be so glad watching him get snubbed and forgotten like Bradley.

Cotto is a better fighter than Kirkland, there is no doubt about that.

But Kirkland probably beats Cotto. I think it would just be a bad idea.

Pacquiao is fighting JMM for the 4th time. Do you think Roach consider JMM as a guy with garbage boxing skills?

That's what I've been saying. Let Cotto fight Kirkland next or Angulo and then he gets a Canelo shot

Cotto beats Kirkland no doubt, Kirkland is fan friendly but does not know how to deal with skilled fighters i dont see how he would beat Cotto.

By forcing his superior size, power and strength on him and bombing him out early. Cotta CAN win, but it's a very dangerous fight for him.

Exactly!
Which is why Roach is so nervous these days he's up to slandering the other side and accusing them of cheating.

Pacquiao is not in the position that Cotto is in right now. Cotto could have fought list of fighters who's style suited his own and gotten paid the same he did for fighting Trout.

Pacquiao however has run out of Welter opponents and below that offer punching bag status. He's gone though all of them allready and if he wants to fight for a big purse, his options are pretty much limited to Mayweather, Marquez, at welter and below, or he can challenge fighters at 154 lbs like Cotto, Canelo, and Sergio Martinez.

If Pacquiao had comparable money making options to fight anyone other than Marquez, we would'nt have this dec 8th fight coming up with Marquez!

Thats what the deal is Pactard. Open your eyes and come out of Pactardism!
