you keep trying to make it different but it isn't. its either ok for both or bad for both. its just that simple.
No, hatton saw Pac get beaten by Morales so waited so decided he wanted Pac. Cotto saw Pac get beaten by Singsurat so decided Pac was ripe for him. Clottey, DLH and Margarito saw Pac go close to the wire with JMM so thought how is this LW going to beat us bona fida WWs so wanted Pac.
Pac is beyond reproach as he has had the toughest schedule of fights in the last 8 years. Floyd dont fight. Next!

now look at this ridiculous post. dude we all know you have a 7 year history of hating floyd here on NSB. cool your riding with that just like freedom is riding with the e racist thing.

but what you posted was straight garbage. Floyd and Manny use their leverage and their ability to draw the same way. either you hate the way both do-like bushbaby- or you just accept it. Both guys have fought guys after they've had tough fights. stop *****ing about it.

Nah, Floyd would have loved to fight Paul Williams, Margarito, Mosley and Cotto back in 2007 but he needed a vacation. Haters gonna hate, Mayweather don't duck and dodge nobody

Someone who only fights once every 2 years dont need to make retirement announcements. Floyd knew if he just was inactive, people would say why dont you fight this guy or that guy, Floyd didnt have an answer for it.
So to take the pressure off, he claimed he retired even though he knew he was coming back when the pressure was off a bit and maybe, Margarito, Cotto and Paul Williams lost or beat up on each other so he didnt have to.
