I don't think neither Pacquiao, Cotto, Mayweather, Alvarez, Chavez Jr or even Martinez (Martinez, Pacquiao and Mayweather for old age and tear) should be at the top of the sport anymore. A few guys make me still watch the Sport. I think Broner is the real thing but he's a rare case where effectiveness in the ring combines with a loud mouth which is necessary to get big fights. Broner without the big mouth and KO power = Bradley and I do feel sorry for Bradley.
Its about time champs were made defend against each other, top man v top man aswell as satisfying mandatories, they need to be busier and start being boxers not business men, of course the money comes with the glory, but more importantly as a sportsperson surely you want to prove your the best.
Big mouth does seem to equal bigger fights, I think Bradley is avoided because he's a tough son of *****.
Guy with the hugest cojones is Carl Froch.
