Pacquiao and Mayweater are obviously the biggest draws. They call the shots. Their opponets NEED them, they don't need their oppenets.

Pacman who started at 106 already widely known for his bravery by moving up in weight 7 times. At 140 he already streched so much his limit. If any welterweight wants to fight him should be in catch weight because at 147 would a be suicide. Obviously at 5'6'' he's too short and have a small body frame if you compare him to them. On fight night, the welterweight will outweight him by at least 10 lbs then you add the reach and height advantages. He has zero whatsoever advantage up there and will gonna be ko silly. Anybody wants him to fight 147 are just wanted him to lost.

WHAT IS WORSE?
heres the thing, you still consider JMM a featherweight, even though he hasnt fought there in 3 years and fights at 135 now

but you still consider floyd a full fledged WW picking on the little guys, when he came up from 130

I think Pac only did it once to ODLH, but Pac moved up for that fight, as well and to a real division, while PBF has done it once with Hatton and now is fighting at a catchweight with JMM, so that's twice.

I say PBF is worse. Pacquiao has never fought at a catchweight.

Regardless, a catchweight fight is wrong for the sport, because I think they're taking money from other deserving boxers who fight in true weight classes, especially ones with titles on the line.

Floyd should fight deserving WW's. He has made enough money fighting who he wants to fight, he should at least share some opportunities with other fighters who have great potential but don't have the name to fight him. There are alot of good fighters out there struggling to make decent coin, at least give them a piece of the pie.

I wouldn't mind seeing PBF vs. Shane, PWILL and Cotto.

In the same vein, I hope Manny gives Bradley or Nate a chance at his JW title or he could move up to 147 and challenge either Shane, Cotto or Berto for a WW title.

Pac vs PBF should happen at either 140 or 147, **** the catchweight, it's bad for boxing.
