Shane defeated Collazo more decisively than Hatton had, so Floyd chose Hatton.
Once Floyd was sure Shane was faded in 2010, THEN AND ONLY THEN was he willing to fight him.
What is wrong with you said by a business stand point and just being one minded.
Hatton at that point was a great fight for Floyd, wise of money and publicity. Hatton was Undefeated and brought a huge fan base from England.
So the word DUCKED, is wrong.
And in 2010, Mosley came off a huge win against Margarito, and so regain his relevance a a good fight for Mayweather.
You could say Pacquiao fought a faded, Mosley (lose to Floyd ANM draw with weak Mora), a faded Margarito (Coming of a lose to Mosley after being exposed to have no real power), a faded Hatton (First Lose to Mayweather, which was embarrassing).
