If someone called Pac out and fought him at 147 for pacs title and went down in weight, Pac would get blasted hard. I am starting to believe nobody really cares about Catchweights, these people who have a problem with it and drug testing only doing so because they want to discredit Pacquiao.
I have never seen anyone get this pissed off at catchweights until Pacman had one versus Cotto, and nobody was demanding about drug testing until Floyd suspecting Pac of roids.
The bold is a lie in every way. 1st off, no one can even call out Pacman. They choose who he fights. Every welterweight & jr middleweight would relish a shot at him if we're being real about it.
But the difference between the fights in comparison here are that Dawson did in fact call out Ward & offer to come to 168. While Arum & team Pacman all but forced Cotto to fight Pacman at 145 after originally trying for 143.
It wasn't like when Mosley ko'd Margarito & waltzed into the wild card & offered to do the fight at 144, when they declined.
