The alphabet groups can strip a fighter of his tittle if he does not fight who they say he should fight. This does not really apply to Floyd because he is so important that they are thrilled to have him as their champion and don't take the tittle from him. He has not defended his WBC welterweight since he won it from Ortiz 15 months ago and he was not even warned. He will defend that tittle in May 20 months after winning it.He could have a fight at 154 in May instead of Guerrero and the WBC probably would still not take his welterweight tittle away.

Some common answers I got from posters on various sites

1- His hand injury
2-He was rich and ran out of money
3- The WW Division was heating up and he wanted to either let them
move up to 160 (Williams) or kill each other off.
4- He needed a break..
He took a page from TR/SRL book and let the other guys fight then he fought the winner in a massive ppv event.

There were a lot of big boys closing down on him. Williams and marg and a fierce miguel cotto.

That and he probably wanted a little time off, but ended up taking a lot more.

said cotto lives too far away, wasn't the CEO of his own company, and is not a ppv draw(unlike baldomir) then retired for 2 years

floyd quotes "health comes first"

"we aint fighting to prove who's best"

and this guy's not a ducker?
come on dude - Floyd only turned down Margo ($8 mill) to fight Oscar ($20 mill) and as for Cotto he wanted no part of it once he saw his sparring partner (Brusseles) get schooled by Floyd.... Cotto has even admitted that he didnt even try to make that fight.... plus Cotto is the man for "my health comes first" type lyrics

P. Willy was certainly a duck but the rest of the WW division is guilty of that same duck too

I think his hands were injured and he wanted to see if a new WW star would emerge.... not great for the fans but smart business I suppose.... I just wish he would fight more often

He waited to fight Pac because he wanted Marquez to knock Pac unconscious which is what happened.

Floyd wanted Marquez to gain revenge alt.

Floyd turned down Margarito to fight Bladomir for $8mil
Is that a a fact or something you made up. Show proff of Cotto saying he wants no part of Mayweather.
