so now that we got pac/bradley out the way...and it's even more clear now that pac doesn't stand a chance against floyd....is there anyone that agrees this is the match to be made? i'm all for it being at madison square garden!!! i can't recall floyd fighting there. it would be a beautiful addition to his illustrious career!
Yes! Glad you found this thread and bumped it!
As for this fight, Im glad that Cotto did better than most gave him credit for and didn't get totally outclassed...which leaves room for a potential rematch that people would be interested
in. I watched this fight again on Friday night, and saw that there more a few close rounds that could've favored Miguel.
MSG doesn't sound like a bad idea. One thing I dont like about MSG is the fuckin' fans man. For the whole Cotto/Margarito II card, they were relatively quiet and only seemed to have an undivided interest in Cotto only. Other than that, it sounds like a good idea as a fight for Floyd to "fall back on" if he so chooses.
Miguel is in a great position (no promoter) right now, and is able to keep most of his money, so Im sure he'll look good in his next few fights to keep his stock going from the Mayweather fight. In fact, he is actually on the A-side of some potential big fights (Canelo, Ortiz, Kirkland, or he could even pull Berto into a fight once he gets clean), and could get the lion's share of the money.
All of the mentioned guys would be on the B-side against Miguel, all he has to do is fight as good as he fought in his last fight, and he'll be okay. I would be more inclined to see this fight again, rather than Arum trying to shove another one of his shit-shows down the throats of the public.
