Especially if Rios beats Manny in April.

Floyd isnt that offensive of a fighter, well since he moved up, because his defense is impregnable. Marquez's defense isnt even close to that, so he has to attack more. Floyd can control fights by pot shoting from the pocket.
And Cotto and Manny are not similar fighters at all. Cotto has a good jab, Manny doesnt. Cotto is also a bigger fighter than Floyd. Despite all that, Cotto only landed like 20 percent of his punches that fight.
According to these so called experts in here, he's a better counter puncher then Marquez so he should have no problem beating Manny right?
I agree with your second point. These guys would rather believe Mayweather would easily beat Manny than for him to go out there and prove it. The bottom line about Mayweather fans, they don't want him to get into the ring with anybody that actually have a shot at beating his ass. That's why they're soooooooo happy Pacquiao got beat. Floyd gameplan worked. He waited until Manny got old or in this case, got beat, now he doesn't have to ever fight him and his fans couldn't be more happy. We Pacquiao fans really wanted this fight, Mayweather fans wanted no part of it.
EDIT: And this is why I have way more respect for Manny as a fighter than I do for Mayweather. Manny isn't afraid to lose where Mayweather is. Manny didn't have to give his greatest challenger Marquez a rematch and IMO, he should not have. He was declared the victor in 2/3 of very close fights that could have went either way. But Manny's way too nice so he gave Marquez yet another chance and it backfired. Do you think Floyd would have given Marquez another rematch? Hell no.

Speaking of Floyd, I hear that Roger's in very bad shape and that his dad might become his trainer.

If this were a black boxer, the word "aides" would be replaced with posse or crew or entourage, all of which have negative connotations when it comes to black athletes.

I believe it's YOU who ignore facts to push your pro Mayweather agenda.

You're pulling a Stephen A by speaking with a fork tongue. You say you're not absolving Floyd of all blame but it seems like you're still putting the lion share of it on Top Rank/Arum. But I don't quite understand what Floyd having an advantage and would be favored have to with anything.
Manny said on National TV that he would accept a 55/45 split. Mayweather refused by saying to Manny, "You have things going for you when you're done boxing, what do I have?"
I don't know about you, but 55% of a potential $150-$200m gate is a lot of $$$.

Also, Manny said he would accept a 55/45 split... then said no 50/50.
And that article is critical of both fighters, which I am as well.First, Mayweather's call for random blood testing led to Pacquiao walking away, with the 8-division champ only allegedly agreeing to terms after the issue had died and talks had long been ended. Then, Mayweather personally called Pacquiao to offer him a flat $40 million for a bout. But, despite having said weeks prior to the offer that he would settle for the lesser share of the purse in order to fight Mayweather, Pacquiao suddenly insisted on a 50-50 money split. Then, once again, after talks had died, Team Pacquiao revisited the idea of taking the lesser share of the money.
Koncz also said only 50-50 after floyd called Manny to speak to him (of course Floyd doesnt want to fight, despite calling him )
http://ringtv.craveonline.com/blog/1...e-conversation"I said that the 50-50 was approved and there’s no problem," said Pacquiao. "Anytime. It’s in your hands. We’ll just wait if it’s OK with you."
Manny only said he wanted a 55/45 split because he was trying to sell this Marquez fight. Dont think any other way but that. He has been doing that for years.
