Going by the same logic?
Baldomir weight more than Floyd but Floyd is taller with longer reach. Cotto is taller and weight more than PAC and with a longer reach. For me to consider it a size advantages u have to weight more than me and have to be taller than me. If u weight more than me but is way shorter than me then that's not really a size advantage because I can still control u with my height.

It's clear to see that Baldomir is obviously a lot bigger than Mayweather is.
He weights more than floyd but Floyd is taller than him. How do u even compare these 2 with PAC and cotto? Cotto is taller heavier than PAC. Cotto have all the edge over PAC whereas with baldomir he only weights more than Floyd eveything else Floyd got the edge over him.

Cotto and Pacquaio are pretty much the same height with the same reach. But Cotto is of course bigger. Thus my point.

Baldomir may be shorter than Mayweather maringally but he's clearly the much bigger of the two of them.

Baldomir is not way shorter than Mayweather's. There the same height pretty much, there's shots where Baldomir even looks slightly taller than him.

PAC is 5'5-5'6 cotto is 5'8. Cotto has been fighting as a ww and PAC was just moving up. How is this not a risk for PAC?

When did I say it wasn't a risk? It was a risk.

I'm just stating that going by the logic of size advantage=risk then surely Baldomir must have been a risk for Mayweather.

I would say Manny because he is not as good as Floyd. Floyd has to fight a middleweight for a risky fight but Manny fighting a 40 year old lightweight is a HUGE risk for him

But u failed to look at the other things that Floyd had over baldomir. What did PAC have over cotto? The catchweight? lol.
