    Blatantly ignoring what happened to Broner's career after moving up in weight too fast trying to cherry pick. It was a quick high then lower lows, difference is Broner was a draw but ironically like Broner, Lopez didn't throw many punches in his 1st big fight vs Loma so he'd look just like Broner did vs Pac..

    Now that I think bout it Lopez vs Broner would be the fight to make if anything not Pacquiao vs Lopez..

    This is perhaps the stupidest thing I've read all year, and I didn't even read the article.

    Grandpa PAC wipes the floor with Lopez.

    Lopez has nothing Pac hasn’t been thru already.
    Even at age 42-43.

    Well, the last time Manny fought at 140 was over 11 years ago. Does anyone think Manny is stupid enough to repeat the mistake Oscar made?

    This with other fights out there that will pay him much, much more than one with Teo?

    I mean someone just mentioned Conor McGregor and (in addition to the fights I have already mentioned as bigger paydays than a Teo fight), it's definitely something Manny does before training himself to fight someone who isn't really big yet.

    As far as passing the torch, there's two guys in Manny's own division who are proven better pound for pound than Teo- one of them a unified champion- and if any torch is to be passed that's who it should be passed to.
    So true. Crawford and Spence both desreve the torch more than Teo. Plus Manny may not want to be the one to work with uncle Bob much. That is why i think he fights Winner of Spence-Garcia.

    Wtf is the upside for Manny to fight Teo???

    This fight makes no logical sense when you think about it for more than 60 seconds.

    Pacquaiao beat ATGs Barrera, Morales and Marquez before he got the chance at a "passing of the torch" match against Oscar. Lopez beats an over hyped Loma and we're talking about a "passing of the torch" match against Pacman? Lopez needs 1-2 more high profile wins before he should be considered a potential face of boxing.

    This would be a cherry pick gone wrong for Teo. Teo may make big bucks, but if he thinks Pac is just going to coast the first six rounds hes crazy. Pac will pop that big nose of his hard with his punches. Pac still beats this kid right now. Thurman is bigger , a better boxer and hits harder than Teo for one punch. Pac won that fight. Pac is bigger , stronger , and faster than Loma. Plus he hits with bad intentions. Teo would be hit hard and often.
