Dude I think this is a very good fight without all the BS attached to it. If its gonna be for Cotto's WBO belt I think the WBO should intervene and throw out the catch weight BS so we can see what's really good. It's the games Team Pacquiao are playing that I dont think is good for boxing. We love Sugar Ray Robinson because when he went up to fight the Lt-heavy-wt champion he went up without all these BS mind games team Pac likes to play. Roy didn't tell Ruiz he has to come down to 200 or no fight. A truly great fighter wouldn't try to handicap another fighter before a fight and Pacquiao is just as guilty as Margarito was cause he knows whats going on. The true All Time Greats wouldn't do this BS.
What games are Pac's team trying to play?
setting up a catch weight?
are you serious?
do you know why there are weight divisions? (if you dont know, which i assume you dont, its for safety reasons)
do you realise that a catch weight is simply a weight that both fighters can make
would you prefer pac make cotto go down to 140?
i for one dont think pac is a 147 fighter and he was under in the DLH fight
so if you think its going to be a good fight then shouldnt cotto go down as pac cant go up?
like i said catch weight is supposed to be more advantageous to both fighters that realistically cant make the proper weight division
do you realise that sugar ray robnson fought in multiple divisions that saw him go from welterweight to middleweight and back down to welterweight????
the same with duran and bascially the same with most other great fighters
they fought people who mattrered and went up and down weight to take onthe fights
you bring out these names but dont really argue other than they took on fighters at heavier weights than where they started. pretty much all fighters do. actually pretty much everyone grows up. im pretty sure its a natural thing
do you realise at what weight pac started at?
do you really think he can be competitive above 147
look at it this way, Hatton started at 140 and stayed there, if he did what pac did and grow into it better then he could ave fought at light middleweight or atleast tried harder at welterweright
he stayed there becasue he wasnt competitive at above 140
now if you look at cotto, cotto used to be dominant at 140 and that wasnt that long ago, to think that isnt going to be a tough fight for pac or anyone else is ridiculous
you also have repeatedly avoided my responses about PBF
last i heard, (befreo the "postponent") that they fight might be at 144 with marquez who is a natural featherwight
where were you when that happened???????
lastly its blatanly obvious your just nut huggin with the comparisons to margarito comment
its disgusting that you think a potentially lethal act is the same as roach trying to protect his fighter from harm
