Bradley, JMM, Maidana, Khan, Ortiz, Rios, Matthysse . . . just someone with a pulse that is coming up and prime. Is that too much to ask? I don't care if none of them have a chance, supposedly. Fight live bodies. Enough of the damaged eggs and heavy bag impressionists.
Even Berto would have been a good fight. Even past WW challengers in Cintron, Collazo and Quintana would show Pac something different than past opponents!

Thats the thing though, not EVERY fight has to be a megafight.
Sergio is way to big for either, neither should look in that direction.
They guys at 140 aren't too small. Hell they are all relatively the same size as Pac. I mean really though you cant count them all out because they are slower than Pac or doesn't to hit as hard as him. Hell KT wasn't faster than most of his opponents but his timing was superb. Thats why fights are fought. Anything can happen on any given night.
I've always thought the same thing. They have gotten so greedy where Boxing (on the big stage anyways) has been put in a position where every PPV has to be bigger than the last which is bullshit. How can there be so many megafights out there with no legitimate fights being made inbetween??
Mosley is old n shot and has been selected to not only get a beating but to be taken out! But they are spinning the fight on small possibilities of an upset with the whole "Manny is not taken him lightly!" Well if Mosley is a live opponent..why would Manny take him lightly to begin with?
Even if all the fighters above don't have a great chance, they have a better chance than Mosley who has not looked good for the past 3-4 years. With all these young fresh guys they could still use the same selling point as well! It's upsetting that these poor fights continue to be made and the worst part is, Manny's stock rises after every one of them!
