There are not many Floyd fans that aren't just as bad as Pacman fans, they are a piece of the same pie. When Bradley fought Pacman, most Pacman fans refused to acknowledge that the fight was close. (7-5 Pacman, for me.)
Just like the Floyd fans believing somehow that Floyd dominated Cotto. The exact same thing different fighter.
You JUST said Devon Alexander and Timothy Bradley would be better than fighting Amir Khan even though Khan would have been THE champion in the division Alexander and Bradley were just in last year.
A test fight in a division is all most fighters need and Khan's people did want that, if available.
Now, I don't agree with your scorecards but, I suspect there are few things we will agree on outside of an apparent love for boxing.
Face it, outside of Pacquiao, who Mayweather will now get criticized for fighting too late, there are no legit fights at 147. Just say that you would prefer Mayweather puts himself at a size disadvantage (and I'm sure we can all agree he will carry even less knockout potential up with him) and fights fighters at 154 and 160.
