I know that most of you guys are thinking, "Man this fight makes no sense, give it a rest Cshel". (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Seriously though, at this point, Pac has lost his last two outings, and so has Cotto. Unfortunately, the fashion in which Manny just lost, may have given Cotto a bit of wiggle room, if they so decide to negotiate again.

This time though, Manny would have to take the 154 lb limit. Yeah I know, Manny's still the bigger draw of the two, but shit, if Marquez doesn't give him a chance, then a Cotto rematch will still be a decent money maker. The undercard or at least the co-feature bout would have to be worth the buy.

If Marquez doesn't budge when it comes to a 5th fight, then what's left for Manny? Rios?! Bradley rematch?! Yeah, had he beaten JMM, then ppl would want to see him punish Tim, but he happened to get knocked out by JMM, so that isn't truly a safe fight anymore.

What if Miguel decides to take less money this time, in exchange for Manny agreeing with the true 154 lb weight limit? Miguel has an Alvarez fight dangling over his head, depending on how May 4th goes. Other than that, there's not much left out there for him...maybe an Ortiz fight, which is easy to make, and will draw a bit of money.

What do you guys think?

At 154 and 154 only with OSDT. No re-dehydration clause and the fight has to be at Madison Square Garden! That will be the only way I see this fight. And like someone says, loser retires and winner takes a very long break.
