Williams is a guy I think Floyd would have fits with.....just because Williams is a physical freak with pretty quick hands. And it doesn't matter if Margarito "throws more punches". He throws more punches, he gets countered more.

And not to diss Ricky..he's a hell of a fighter... but I think all the top dogs at 147 would have handled him...

I totally agree that Hatton would have been ko'd by all the big names at 147 and he will be going back to 140, where I'd love to see him fight Judah.

As far as Margarito's chances vs Cotto's chances, it's just impossible for me to see Floyd losing to a shorter, slower guy with shorter arms. At least Margarito has the size advantage and a great chin to withstand the counters. And the point about him throwing so many punches is that it just increases the chances that something would land. Anyway, Floyd ain't fighting Margarito or Williams so it's really just wasted breath - and I don't say that to take anything away from Floyd. Last night he was spectacular even if Hatton was too slow and too small for him.

I really believe Mayweather will fight Cotto and call it a career...that fights makes the most sense...with Cotto being a superstar right now..coming off two HUGE victories.

The only thing that would keep that from happening is if DLH decides to move to 147 to fight Cotto, which is the most logical move for both DLH and Cotto.

I think Floyd doesn't have any interest in fighting Williams or Marg. High risk, low rewards. Floyd just wants those big PPV fights...and Cotto is a big PPV fight. And honestly, fighting Cotto actually does more for his legacy since Cotto is considered a P4Per.

Yeah, but if Cotto wants an easier fight for more money he'll fight DLH. And now that Hatton's gone, DLH doesn't have any better options in terms of risk/reward. I don't think Floyd has a choice in this matter.

Mayweather beats Cotto and does so easier than he did Hatton in my opinion.

Cotto cannot close the distance like Hatton can, and though whatever Cotto lands will do a lot more damage - he won't land, and he will get hurt. Williams or Margarito are better fights because of their workrate, size and stamina...Williams presents more problems with his reach, height, and boxing ability; Margarito presents more problems with aggression, power and physicality.

Skillwise, Cotto is better than Williams or Margarito...but I think the size factor will come into play bigtime. I hope I am wrong, and know I will be pysched if Floyd does fight him, but I have my concerns.

Cotto will be more effective closing the distance than Hatton because he will do it behind his underated Jab....Again!!!!!

Article from boxingscene





After Floyd Mayweather Jr. overcame a game Ricky Hatton and stopped him in the tenth round of their championship bout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, "Money" Mayweather announced that he was going to take a long vacation from the sport. Mayweather, who admits he's become bored with boxing, is planning to focus on building his promotional company. He wants to step away from boxing for as long as two-years.

WBA welterweight champion Miguel Cotto, who sat ringside at the MGM Grand, was not pleased with Mayweather's decision to step away from the sport. Cotto is under the impression that Mayweather is intentionally avoiding a fight with him.

"He has had great victories, but when you talk about Miguel Cotto and Floyd Mayweather, he always comes up with excuses -- I'm not the opponent for him, I'm not ready for him," Cotto said to the Grand Rapids Press. "I earned all I have now. I worked for that. Over the next year, year and a half, I can take the big names. At 147 pounds, the welterweight division, to me, it's the hottest division in boxing today. Margarito, Mayweather, Hatton, Kermit Cintron, Paul Williams and me. It could be three years of great boxing. I just want the big fights, the big names, the real fights. I wish the rest of the opponents want the same."
