Lets say cotto beats pac, and floyd beats marquez.
Who is new p4p no. 1
My opinion on the matter is that when you have such a small guy taking on a dangerous and much larger champion, then losing shouldnt effect his status too much. Pac will probably lose 1 or 2 slots at worst case scenario
Conversely, a much larger stronger fighter losing to a smaller man should have his p4p rating drastically effected (ie hatton vs pac). And on the same note, a larger stronger fighter beating a a much smaller man... he did what he was supposed to do, and so shouldnt garner that much respect. Who respects a schoolyard bully picking on smaller kids? I have a problem with mayweather slotting back on the top of the p4p lists based on something that happens everyday in schools around the world. At best he should be top 3, based on inactivity for so long and the meaningless accomplishment of beating up a guy that should never have agreed to fight above 140. And yes, i dont think cotto should shoot up in the ratings based on a pac win for the same reasons, conversley cotto losing represents a huge risk for cotto's standing
