He won't be a pushover like most think ... Pac is always in good shape and is stronger than most people would expect at a higher weight class.

His lower body looks like it could stand more weight ...
Pacquiao is going to be beast at 135 and definitely has a good chance at beating Hatton.. I just don't see him going past 140 nor do I see the fight with Mayweather happening.. I don't even think I'v ever seen anyone from Top Rank or Pacquiao's camp even mention a fight with Mayweather.. Only DLH but more than likely, DLH will be fighting someone else for his last fight in December..

Just like a fight w/ Pac v Valero ... as much as I would like to see this happen ... Pac wouldn't make nearly as much money as he's made Saturday night against a guy like Valero, so why take the fight.

Its not career defining ... hell Pac has been in the game since 95' ... after 13 yrs in the game you would think he'd have a career defining fight or two.

The same w/ PBF ... he's been in the game since 96' and has acheived everything there is to acheive.

Why fight Cotto?

To prove what? ... Cotto has only been a WW since 12-06 ... while Floyd has been there since 11-05 and has already won the universally recognized title/linear title/ring magazine/WBC strap ... thats more that Cotto could ever dream of ... no matter who he faced ... Cotto would have to do alot more to get where PBF has been. Add to that a SWW title ...

Pacman would be horrible outmatched against any top 10 welterweight in the world. Clottey would beat him, as would Collazo.

At a catchweight of 143 .... Floyd can make that ...

If Pac looks good at 140 (which I think he will) then he sets himself up for a showdown w/ PBF.

Pac should unify at 135 before moving up again.
Pac is not keen on going all the way up to 147 soon. He did say i can fight only up to 140.

Maybe he should be thats not the point ... no one at lightweight is as marketable as he is. You can even factor in the new guys who have moved up from SFW.

Pac is faster than 95% of the lightweight and junior welterweight division's best.

I think that once he takes on the winner of Hatton v Malignaggi or fight Hatton and have Paulie step aside, he's going to be the front runner to challenge Floyd in 09' - despite what Cotto does against Margarito and or DLH.

Pac is a bigger draw that Cotto and can produce more money than Cotto in a PPV fight.

The longer this goes on and the more championship that Pacquiao gets - the more people are going to believe that Pac has a chance against PBF.

As long as he carries his speed and power at 147, then its very possible.

What do you guys think now?
I was gonna make a thread on this lol.
IF PAC BEATS HATTON
Floyd Mayweather WILL fight MANNY PACQUIAO
this is a 100% certainty!
Why the **** would Floyd fight a real threat like Cotto when he could make 3x the money against Manny?
I can't stand Floyd but its true, the guy is ****ing with boxing.
And I don't think its amazing at all.

i think a better fight for the both of them AND for us fans would be Judah vs. Pac very similar styles. but i don't think it's too good of an idea for Pac to be moving up too much in weight.

No way in hell that fight happens, even in the post fight interview Pac was asked about the divisions he plans to go to and he said 140 would be the MOST. When asked about 147 he just laughed as it was ridiculous.

I also see a Pac vs PBF fight. All depends on Pac fighting and beating another lightweight champ and then if he beats Hatton convincingly. Fitz you are right, but I want to see good challenging fights, not who can bring the most money to the table. We end up paying the rediculous prices. Pac, Oscar, PBF, Jones, Jr, and Joe are great examples on making the most before they go. We not? "Hey Floyd, Pac is moving up to possibly 142 and he just destroyed Hatton, do you want to fight him for 25 million"? What do you think PBF or any other fighter's answer is going to be?

If Pac can unify or stop one more 135 champ and bring that power to 140 and stop Hatton. Of course, they are going to look at possibly moving up to 147. It is too early though.

If Mayweather fought Pacman instead of Cotto and Margarito, it would be regarded as the biggest bitch move in boxing.
