If Cotto was truly washed up, Pac would have accepted to fight him, just like he did Hoya (at 147), Clottey (at 147), Mosley (at 147).... Let alone a washed up Margarito at a catchweight for JMW title/gift.
ODLH challenged Pac during that time, not the other way around. Pac was still a LW and DLH was a Jr MW. Why doesn't anyone call Oscar out for challenging a guy 3 divisions below you? WW seemed fair to meet half way for both. Its not Manny's fault DLH couldnt make 47.

Clottey only became a Jr MW after he fought Pac. Before that he was a former WW champ and fought most of his career at WW. Weight shouldnt be a topic when it comes to Manny.

Mosley, again... He mainly campaigned at WW when Pac was there. He even said in interviews after he fought Sergio Mora he wasn't a Jr MW and we all know he fought Canelo at Jr WW because of the money. Weight shouldn't be excuse here either.

As for Margarito, didn't Cotto want to fight him at 150 as well. Tony didn't accept that so the CW was 153 lol. So Cotto can't make 150 for Pac but he can for Margarito? Lets be honest here... At ANY weight, Pac beats Cotto.

Pac will look a fool vs JMM again and then Bob will say we want Mayweather while making a Pac vs Bradley II while prepping Rios for a WW fight vs Pac after the fact or vice-a-versa. Pac resigning with Bob (who has an agenda) convinced me we won't see the fight until his new contract is about to expire, meaning he retires so Bob cashes out.
Yes, Arum is a big reason why the fight isn't happening but so is Floyd. Outside of May, who else is there for Manny to fight? Its either he stays busy or fights once a year or go into a semi-retirement.
