if u had a belt at more than one weight class...i'd agree with u. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

losing to salido...roids or not...is not shameful. dude is a beast. as for him not facing paulie, judah or maidana....it happens. i wanted floyd to fight cotto and hatton at 140. he waited til both were shop worn to face them. sometimes the fighters we like do that. boxing is a business. i get it. he's picking his battles wisely. when it's all said and done...he may be in a better position than the guys u mentioned if he can play his cards right. i can't fault him for that. a lot of ppl bitched and moaned when floyd passed up on cotto, margarito and williams to try and get that delahoya fight. i wanted one of those fights to happen too....but i get it. floyd had bigger plans. i can't shit on guerrero for trying to do the same. it's his career....he and his ppl have to maximize their money. the same can be said for a lot of fighters. as i type this....donaire immediately comes to mind.

Hatton was undefeated and from what I hear, Cotto's people didn't want Floyd crushing their buzz ever sicne the Gatti fight. (Maybe it was just Arum) If you remember, Cotto was ringside as was Hatton looking very shook. Furthermore, even back THEN, Floyd's resume' was larger than Guerrero's. He'd beaten an undefeated Corrales, Chop Chop, Manfredy, Augustus (Burton), Sharmba Mitchell, Castillo twice, Genaro Hernandez and killed the buzz around Bruseles who was supposed to be push Cotto as the best Puerto Rican fighter in the world.

I applaud him moving up and getting a win but BARELY beating Aydin doesn't warrant him grabbing his crotch like he's got the 10 footer.

I too don't hate on a gy trying to get their money, but he knew damn well he wasn't getting that Mayweather fight anytime soon. He could have fought Maidana and Paulie in the meantime. If you cant beat them, you have no shot at beating Floyd anyway, whereas at least with Bradley, you could conceivably lose to Khan but still beat Manny.

that's not how i recall it. he looked more unimpressed than anything. whatever the case....floyd called cotto a regional fighter and chose to take a long break instead of face him. i'm sure arum had everything to do with that. if brusselles got a shot at floyd....then guerrero is more than deserving.
