Your point about manny/jmm being a rivalry would be valid except Manny tried to CW cotto again first. He never gives JMM an immediate rematch. Yet when they fight you and others make this some monumental rivalry. Well if it is, then dont try and CW cotto again before fighting him. There is no way you can justify or change that.
manny only fought them because they were TR fighters. Floyd fought zab and ortiz, has manny fought them? no so can we stop that BS.
either way guerrero and ortiz won fights. you are trying to minimizse them or reduce them, but they are still wins. and, I thought in boxing if you beat a guy ranked ahead of you you move up and get better fights.
If any ww ahd lost 2 consecutive fights like manny has and tried to fight for the ww title you would have a fit and scream about it. SO dont change just because its manny.

Only way I see Floyd vs Manny still happening is Floyd losing this year to either Guerrero or Canelo. It would be a slap in the face for us still, but it would be the last big money fight for either guy.
...or Floyd just retires.

Roy Jones and other did as well, but no where near the level of Mayweather did, so when they lost it was not as bad.

What? Manny fought his biggest rivalries/threats many times.
- Marquez 4 TIMES!!!
- Morales 3 TIMES!!!
- Barrera 2 TIMES!!!
Who said it had to be immediate? They both new that Marquez 4 was going to happen.
Many great rivalries occured without immediate rematches. Go check out when Frazier vs Ali 2 happened and then Frazier vs Ali 3.
Cotto vs Manny was not something that I wanted to see. It would have been a payday just like Floyd did. Cotto would have been fine with the CW because he even requested it against Margarito.
Sorry but Floyd said it more than once that Manny has to revenge and beat Bradley.
Here is the crazy part. Did Floyd DEMAND these guys to get revenge before Floyd agreed to fight them?
- Ortiz vs Maidana -
- Zab vs Baldomir
- Cotto vs Manny and according to Floyd, Cotto even lost to Clottey!!!
- Marquez vs Chris John and Manny.
- Oscar vs Mosley and vs Hopkins
- Sharmba Mitchel vs Kostya Tszyu
- DeMarcus Corley vs Zab Judah
There are more names that I can bring up but at some point, you gotta say, "It's true, Floyd NEVER wanted to fight Manny"
