Yup, that is why he called out Manny. The media is trying to make more money for this fight also by building up Bradley.

Bradley is a good boxer but 1. he should've fought Khan at 140 2. hes never fought at 147. Never having fought at Welterweight and never having fought a big name (I don't count Devon Alexander) is not a good formula when facing someone of Manny's caliber.

After Nate Campbell he fought Abregu at 147

yeah, you are right, he did fight Abregu at 147 but I think he fought Lamont Peterson after Nate Campbell.
ha ha, so Mayweather could not destroy Cotto.

j/k......kinda...

Did anyone think Cotto had a shot?

Unless its Manny - Mayweather, I won't be watching any matches.

Boxing fans get excited about matches on the regular, why would this one be any different?

I understand that, twas why I said just kidding. The kinda part was just joking because I am a Pac fan so I would like to believe this could be a end all argument.

I believe the Marquez camp said that the weight he fought PBF wasn't ideal for him.

Neither was Cotto's weight against Manny.

THIS

Manny whooped Cotto and Cotto looked good against Floyd. Floyd whooped JMM and JMM always looks good against Manny. Obviously, there were weight issues with each fight but you get the idea.

Cotto did better than I thought he would.
Floyd fought a somewhat bigger guy. ....with a belt.

Floyd did get bloodied up a bit.
The ony other big time fight for Floyd, other than Manny will be against Martinez at 154Lbs. Might be interesting to see a counter puncher against a counter puncher, or might be a dud because of the safety first style sometimes used by both.

I'd love to see Floyd vs King Serg. Only way it happens is if the Manny fight doesn't happen.....again.
I predict that Floyd will fight 2 more times then call it quits. The Manny thing is never gonna happen you can blame whoever you want but it aint gonna happen

There's also Berto depending on how he looks against Ortiz. Berto's seemed to built up a decent fanbase.
