Ill be pissed if floyd retires without giving cotto a shot.
Don't worry man, the head of Fightfan.com a boxing site got into Floyd Mayweather's gym and picked apart the head of Roger Mayweather(Floyd's trainer). He said as long as Cotto keeps winning Floyd will fight him. Think about it, the more Cotto wins and the more publicity he gets and the more popular he gets, the bigger the fight will be! And Floyd is all about the big pay days. He's just being smart business wise. They will be paying close attention to Cotto/Margarito which most likely will happen later in the year. It will be Cotto's biggest test to date and I will be absolutely SHOCKED if Cotto comes out on top. Unlike every other fighter he's faced, Margarito can match his power and toughness and his chin is rock solid were Cotto's is still in question. They are the same type of fighter with Margarito winning all the intangibles. A VERY hard fight for Cotto. If he wins, shoot, no way Floyd will retire and not fight him!
As for your TS question. I will say Floyd Unanimous Decision this time. Forbes who is a natural super featherweight/Lightweight with little to no KO power hit Oscar just as much as any other fighter that Oscar has fought. Probably landed even more punches then Floyd. It's just he had no power behind those punches so De La Hoya was able to walk through them. Floyd on the other hand has more power. Oscar was breathing through his mouth already in the middle rounds. Not to mention he'll be chasing Floyd around even more and have to throw even more punches to out work Floyd for a decision. It will just be too much work for him and he'll fade late as always in his later fights. If he wins enough rounds early he has a good shot on the scorecards. But if he does not do enough early and does not use the jab effectively like last time, he will get beat badder. he needs to jab! the main factor in this fight besides his conditioning. I just can't see him doing it. But just like with B-Hop against Joe, I'll be rooting for him! Floyd is just too young, slick and fast,
