Of course Margarito would destroy Judah, but honestly, Clottey, Mayweather, and Cotto already destroyed Judah. I'm sorry but if Margarito fights someone who's probably 2 divisions smaller than him, coming off a beatings vs Clottey and Cotto then thats just bullshit. That would be like a 140 pounder fighting a 160 pounder.
Shane-Marg would also, I would guess, put at least $2-3MM in Marg's pocket with way way way less risk than vs. Williams.
Sal, you were hating on Floyd for doing the exact same thing (while he was waiting for the DLH payday). I thought Margarito was the "coolest" guy in boxing who would fight whoever the fans wanted him to?
First of all, Floyd definitely didn't destroy Judah. Not even close. Floyd boxed and outpointed him 8-4. Second, Judah's still a ww. How is that fighting someone 2 divisions smaller than him? The question is, why didn't Judah fight Marg back Judah was the ww champ? The reason was because Marg was too much of a risk. Judah was part of Marg's problem for all those years and I feel quite sure that Marg would LOVE to end his career. Sweet Justice!
And you're wrong about me hating Floyd for doing the exact same thing. Floyd never did the same thing. Floyd never fought the big guys in the division. Floyd never had to fight in the shadows because all the guys in the division (like Floyd, Judah, and Shane) were ducking him. And Marg's never compared himself to SRR. Those are huge differences. Floyd never pretended to fight the best at ww, and yet claimed to be the best of all time. And Marg's NEVER had a huge paycheck - particularly never had a huge paycheck coming for a relatively easy fight, and he's 30. Every penny he has has come from tough tough fights with guys nobody else wanted any piece of.
And though Marg is my favorite fighter, I wouldn't call him the coolest guy in the sport unless he fights Williams next. That's the championship thing to do. Pacquiao did it when he fought JMM, and Margarito couldn't be considered as cool as Pacquiao until he avenges the Williams loss. If Williams is his first defense, then Marg would be very deserving of the label "coolest" right along side Pacqiao.
