I don't even think Manny is a big WW let alone JMW. There are some big boys in that divsion and not one that I would personally be interested in seeing either guy fight in. Just my opinion.
Can we just get some half decent fights in at WW before asking any of those guys to fight at 154? It's like some dudes here are saying they would like to see Martinez fight certain guys at 168. See I think that's crazy too.
At the end of the day both Floyd and Manny got caught cherrypicking a lil in regards to 154 but I'm not going to hold those fights over their heads as some kind of reason to go up to that division.
Manny may not be a big WW but he has fought there long enough to ensure that he is a legit WW fighter now. Truth is, over the years the WW division has dried up alot and I think the best fights to be made would be around the WW division.
I agree with you on getting fights made against fighters within their division. The fact that Pac and Mayweather fight in the same division and are considered the 2 best in the world and neither want to fight eachother and on top of that make poor fights is sickening. I don't think it's crazy for fighters to move up or down to get fights, just as long as you have taken care of business in your own division or unless moving up or down is more compelling than to remain in a division.
Floyd and Manny got caught cherrypickin a lil
? just at 154? Or at 147 for years aswell?
I think that's very generous to say they have cherrypicked a lil
!! One thing for a fighter to duck another but both of them have gone beyond ducking to the point that after years of doing so (with fighters other than themselves) have finally mastered the art of cherrypicking. They have no reason for making the fight that they did, specially when they had everything their way in terms of star power, money, rankings and accolades. Disgusting on both fighters!
What is your reason for not expecting both fighters to fight at a division they have already fought in and claimed world titles in? Why wouldn't you expect them to fight there again? Yes, I understand here is where we see things differently, but to me both fighters (including Pac)
looked perfectly fine to me inside the ring at 154. None of them seemed like they're styles suffered nor did neither look vulnerable as well, they looked good.
A fight with Martinez is only a division away! People seem to dismiss the fact the at Martinez age he would have to drop down in weight to make the fight as well. All three are former title holders in that division and is only a division away to make!
IMO Pacquaio and Mayweather have no reason to suggest that match up is as crazy as make it out to be when they have already fought and claimed a world title in that division.

Looks like 2 ways this could play out.
1) Mayweather V Pacquiao and Khan V Bradley.
2) Mayweather V Khan and Pacquiao V Bradley.
I would be happy with either. So long as the winners agree to fight!!!!! Perhaps a 4 man tournament? Now THAT, would be a tournament!

Call me old fashioned but I would just like to see the two best 140 fighters get it on for an undisputed fight, and the best 147 fighters get it on. Then they can see what happens after that.
