Roger couldn't work twitter if his life depended on it lol
Absolutely correct. I saw a bunch of intelligent and legible tweets...couldn't have been Roger's account.
For a while, I've been talking up a Khan fight because it made too much sense. Khan having Roach, Ariza, and Pacquiao, as mainstream leverage during a 24/7 keeps the ball rolling for a megafight along with Amir's British scenery and backstory, which 24/7 hasn't seen since Hatton's last fight.
With all this said, it's waaaay too early for Floyd to even be concerned about who he's fighting next. If anybody notices a pattern, Floyd usually makes his upcoming fights based off of the performances of other fighters (Hatton, Marquez, Mosley (somewhat), Ortiz, and Cotto), not immediately after his own fight.
As for an immediate Cotto rematch offering him $14M, that sounded a bit odd as well. If Cotto makes $14M in an immediate Mayweather rematch, then there's 3 questions that should follow...
1. How big is the purse for this fight?
2. How is Floyd going to make anything north of that guaranteed $32M, if people aren't roaring and demanding an immediate rematch?
3. Lastly, just how in the hell is everybody else (promoters, PPV) going to get paid?
These are the same questions that should've been asked when that whopping $30M Cotto payday was being thrown around before the numbers were set in stone for the Mayweather fight. At one point, I believed that Cotto was going to make that much, but then I was challenged on the 3 questions above.
