I agree, but I think sometimes people are just to quick to say that a fighter is ducking. Case in point, people claimed that Donaire was ducking Rigo for months, now it looks like the fight is going to happen. Bowe clearly ducked Lewis, that's one the best examples of a duck that I can think of...

Fans want to see their favorite fighters get opportunities and get frustrated when they don't.

It's like people forget that Arum offered Floyd 8 mil for that fight. You can say that Cotto was Arum's cash cow at the time, but he wasn't even on a PPV yet.

He had a lot more to lose with Cotto.

Cotto was his next star and money machine.

Where did I say that I support that? Boxing fans are probably the dumbest of any sport. People will sh1t on fights and still buy them on PPV. I don't do that. If you're going to buy sh1tty fights why should fighters and promoters give us the fights we want to see? However, I'm not naive enough to believe that a fighter is ducking just because a fight doesn't happen right away.

Remember the David Haye Wladimir Klitschko saga? How long did it take them before they finally fought each other?

I'm not sure, possibly not, but Floyd wasn't even going to try to make it happen.

He took 2 years off from the sport.
