You know what dude ? The reason why I hate Floyd so much is because I just can't stand people that talk that much smack while handpicking. How can Floyd call himself and ATG ? Seriously ! Real ATG's like Duran, Leonard, Sugar, Hagler, etc. had the will to face the best opponents, even when they sometimes faced weightclass, age or height disadvantages; they were just competitive and had the guts; those guys were willing to clean up divisions and take on anybody, don't matter if they had to face 2, 3 or 4 tough opponents in a row.

I love to play FNR3 on XBOX live, and I am really good; For me, Floyd is like one of those kids on that don't want to play me and use the "you are not on my level" excuse instead of the real "you present a threat, I don't wanna lose". That is what I think of Floyd Mayweather, a dude who picked on Ricky Hatton because he knew how horrible he was @ 147 when watching the fight against Collazo, a dude who refused to face the best of all the divisions he's been.

If it was let's say Hearns right now, he would probably want to face Cotto, Williams, Mosley, Margarito, all of them, because of his competitiveness and heart. That is being an ATG, by willing to prove yourself against the best, and compete while being a great boxer.

SugarShane:

If Cotto beats Margarito ( I think he will ), he will be the top dawgg @ 147, and Floyd will have to stop putting up excuses like "I'm Mr. PPv myself, I don't need him" or "I'm his boss" or "I won't fight him unless he becomes an entrepreneur" garbage and sign a fight with him. If he does not do that, you will have to agree with me he is a duck like no other and don't deserve to be mentioned with Lanard, Duran, Haglr, etc. in the same sentecne. If he unducks and signs a fight, I will be the first to accept he is willing to take on the best and will for sure gain all my respect.

Are you willing to accept this ? To call Floyd a duck if he don't fight Cotto ( if he beats Margs ) ? Cuz I am ready to announce my respect 4 Floyd if he unducks.

BTW; same if Margs wins

Why are you so mad at Shane for? because hes a fan of Floyd? shouldnt you be calling FLoyd out himself instead of calling out his fans? Ive heard Shane say numerous times that he would consider Floyd a duck if he doesnt face Cotto and that fight still has a really big possibilty of happening so calm down dude and stop being mad at Shane for and start sending Floyd e-mails altho i think he wont read them and start counting his millions again.

Ps. Yeah and as i stated before and shane i hope you dont mind me defending you a little bit :) Shane refuses to call Floyd a duck for not fighting Margy (and i agree with him btw) but he has stated numerous times that if FLoyd does not fight Cotto he will admit he ducked him :)

No doubt about it. If he never fights Cotto I'll call him a duck. I've said that since Cotto "beat" Mosley.

Leonard was accused of ducking Hearns for a year. So if Floyd doesn't fight Cotto in a year then you can call him a duck.

But Floyd has retired PERMANENTLY!! he said so in his last tearfulretirement statement. How can a retired fighter again? Does this mean you dont believe what he says ???

But Leonard didnt write tearful "retirement" letters and accuse people of hating him because he is a rich black man. Bringing race into it means he's scaping the bottom of the barrel

You wish !

This thread should have a no **** in the title.
Keep it mature don't star the stupidity....

That's ecxatly were his head is at, I think the training it self was good mental and physical therapy for little Floyd and now he's got all the time in the world to allow his inner demons to get the best of him...

I definitely don't think Cotto is the type of guy to look past anyone, but pretty much everyone else is totally looking past Tony. I'm with you and I don't think it would be all that big of an upset.
I saw a replay the other day of margarito vs Cottey if this guy lasted the full 12 landing quite a bit and with a broken hand, Margarito does'nt have a prayer...

Was that the first time you saw Clottey-Margarito bro? Man if Clottey didn't hurt his hand he would have beaten Margarito. Cotto is going to stop Margarito in 10.

No he didn't. He retired in press conferences or in front of thousands of people with a "tearful" speech. All the guys that said Leonard was ducking Hagler or Hearns are looking stupid now so wait a little before calling Floyd a duck or you're gonna end up looking like them.

Clottey was merking him in the early rounds. We might see a rematch if Margarito loses to Cotto.

Maybe some ppl is looking past Tony. Personally, I am.. I do acknowledge that he is a dangerous fighter and I wont be surprised at all if he beats Cotto, but I'm confident he wont. We're boxing fans and whenever we're making a pick sometimes we get convinced by our own pics just to say to yourself you predicted it. and tahts how it works, i'm sticking to my words, Cotto in a dominant fashion.

Good thing Cotto isnt, I agree with most of this post and believe it or not Margarito has gotten better since his fight with Clottey and Williams. Many people forget that Margarito went in to the Clottey fight with 2 different injuries. Before and against Clottey and Williams you could see him trying to box in the first rounds and when he found out he couldnt he would turn into a non stop punching machine with a great chin. He is starting to be that non stop punching machine from round 1, which he showed in his attack on Johnson and even more on Cintron(since it went 6).

It will go to Margarito vs Mayweather talk, which is about 10x worse.

Hagler really beat Leonard though didnt he? Shoeshine dont win fights.
As Hagler himself said the judges sucked they didnt count the first 2 1/2 minutes of every round in the scoring. Hagler left boxing for good over that robbery

Good thing you put the > " < because I'm getting sort of tired of reading that Cotto beat Mosely. Maybe on paper he did, but I had Mosely winning the fight by a solid 2-3 rounds.

By the way, people, don't let this post get you off topic.
