This fight will be made. It is smart business-wise for the Mayweather camp for 2 reasons.

1. Bradley has a win over Pacquiao(no matter what you think you saw). If Maywether beats Bradley(which is almost a guarantee), then he doesnt have to fight Pacquiao because he beat the guy who beat him. OR, he can go into negotiations for a Pacquiao fight with a larger chunk of the purse. What was 55 - 45 will easilit become 65 - 35 or worse.

2. Bradley is at least on paper a legit fight, so all the Sergio Martinez vs Mayweather talk goes away. Mayweather will kill 2 birds with one stone. He can avoid the threat that Martinez poses and save face because his fans will argue that Bradley was a better opponent anyway.

i should have stopped reading after u said "he had cotto very damaged and primed to be stopped.." (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

floyd has recently said cotto was his toughest opponent ever. if he can admit that...why can't u?

bradley, unlike burton....knows how to win consistently and has not lost a bout yet. i take nothing away from burton because he was as crafty as they come...and like bradley...even though he didn't have big punching power...his punch was to be respected. floyd is a safety first fighter and is content with getting a decision win. bradley is calculating and will make adjustments. i'll agree to disagree...i don't see floyd stopping bradley.



Ok.. I did not gather that or recall reading it, yet up until Cotto Augustus was his toughest fight according to Floyd.. and if you watch that fight Floyd fought face first and had no respect for Augusts power which resulted in him having a bloody nose throughout... really.. I think if Floyd stepped it up he could have gotten Cotto out of there.. Augustus was stopped and it was called his toughest fight... I have no problem admitting Cotto was a tough fight, yet Floyd could have stopped him and I don't think I am on the only one who saw this... only gave Cotto 4 rounds---I recall Cotto being near the brink in round 12... The only way Bradley does not get stopped is if he is on his bike and opts not to trade... he has no power. He is pillow fisted... my view of course... you have yours and I have mines...

4 is reasonable. i gave him 5. name another opponent that has won 4 rounds against floyd....

i saw cotto buzzed in that last round...but he came right back at floyd and floyd did what he does...he boxed.

if and when floyd fights bradley...i'd be more than willing to bet the house that one goes the distance.
