Default **In all Honesty: Why not PBF v Cotto rather than Hatton...**

I am amazed at the logic in boxing, PBF and Cotto had a recent common opponent, Zab Judah, both won , but in different fashion, the logical thing to do is have PBF match up against Cotto and not against a guy the his first taste at 147 was a disaster…..sure Hatton took care of Castillo in impressive fashion, but did he faced the Castillo that fought PBF and Chico….well no…so what’s the urge for this match, Collazo was able to dance circles around Hatton..I can only imagine what a faster and sliker PBF will do…

Well, its PBF's desire for one thing In reality he should face both men.

Floyd likes to go after the most winnable fights.

A fight with Hatton is much more winnable for him in my opinion than Cotto or Mosley.

I'd rather see that fight @ 147 than any other fight.

Maybe next year or so. Mayweather's most makeable fights now are Hatton, and then Mosley.

If Arum wanted to make Mayweather-Cotto, he would've tried to push for it, but he kept trying to make Mayweather-Margarito. Then he could make Margarito a bigger name, maybe it'll help sales if he fights Cotto.

There are a # of fighters he should fight. You guys clamored for this fight for over a year, and when Hatton beat Castillo everyone was back on the train.

PBF has a few fighters he should fight. He can't fight them all at once. So lets see what happens after he fights Hatton (if he fights Hatton). Remember, up until this weekend, it seemed Cotto was going to fight Margarito.

The only reason why I want to see PBF-Hatton over PBF-Cotto right now is because the fight should have taken place in 2005 and Hatton called him out after the Hatton-Castillo fight.
I do realize Cotto will be a harder fight for PBF.

Man you guys better pay attention...Cotto as well as Margo are with Arum...we seen the Hype train end already with Margo.......now im not saying Cotto is anything like Margo...but.....man if he throws Cotto in with a skilled slick boxer like PBF or Shane and things could get ugly for Cotto.

That is a stupid as reason to want to see this fight first, Cotto has shown he is much more worthy to fight Floyd than Ricky Hatton is, especially when you look at their common opponents Cotto knocked them all out while Floyd went the distance with them.
Which is exactly the reason Floyd is fighting Hatton, he knows good and well Cotto is an entirely different package.

Both PBF and SSM are in for a night of hell with Cotto, win or lose. Cotto is breaking peoples bodies apart more and more every fight.

Cotto has every ability to make things just as ugly for his opponent as anyone in the division.

Hatton called Floy out, disrespecting his accomplishements. So I say let Floyd woop Hattons ass and then after we see whats good with Cotto.

Using common opponents is fine, when you are looking at if they won or lost and even how they won in the sense of how dominant they were.

But you CANNOT use the "Cotto KO'd all their common opponents" BS as an argument. The slugger will always come out on top in that argument. PBF is a boxer, so that means NOTHING.

Because Floyd doesn't want to fight guys that he perceives as a threat.
