That's why this fight was a no brainer for Cotto.

I was atually thinking about this as soon as the fight got made. Floyd would definitely fight Cotto because even at middle weight i dont think cotto would weigh more than 165 against Floyd and that's what Canelo weighed so Floyd wouldn't have a problem. It doesn't matter how much Cotto weighs anyway because his frame is the same size as Floyd's so the more weight he puts on is only going to make him slower. But I doubt Arum is going to allow his middleweight's belts get into hands of Floyd. Cotto will prob get robbed if he wins.

You are wrong in so many ways.

If the Manny fight could not have been made, everyone knew that that was the fight that would have been the fight that possessed both risk and glory for Floyd. If Floyd would have beat Martinez, title or no title, it would have earned him much much more than a title could ever do for Floyd AND YOU KNOW IT!!!

Secondly, Sergio moved up to get the fights. Even when he moved up, he was still able to do CWs. He is even doing one now. You even brought up 150. Well that would be questionable weight but not 154. For the very reason that if 150 was brought up, then Sergio would have made 154 relatively easy. We are not discussing a guy who fought at 160 forever.

Manny: Manny tried it once (150). During training camp he said this will be the first and last time. So we both know what's up with that ... you are just using it as an excuse to diffuse the real discussion.

Back to Floyd, like I already said, Floyd fought at 154 BEFORE and AFTER being called out.

Only Floyd has fought at 154 before and after Sergio called him out. Sorry but that is a true duck. Saying that Manny is comparable, well, even Sergio admitted that you are pushing it when he said that Manny is just too small.

LOL. Love the triangle theory!

Cotto hasn't beat a legitmate champ/contender in almost 7 years...with that said....let's not get ahead of ourselves....let's just focus Sergio.

*not saying Cotto wasn't a great fighter, but plaster and pac took too much out of him.
