With the recent retirement of Pretty Boy Floyd there is a lot of speculation of who Oscar will fight to end his career. I am hearing a lot of talk of him facing off against Manny Pacquiao. Wouldn't that be nice of him to fight a guy that is significantly smaller than he is for his retirement fight. Don't get me wrong Manny is a great boxer, but he isn't even a 130 pound fighter. The guy won his first title at 112 compared to Oscar who won his first title at 130. Oscar would absolutely murder Manny in a fight in the squared circle. Here is to hoping that Oscar shows some testicular fortitude and takes the next best fight available for him and fights Miguel Cotto in his retirement fight. I know he wants to go out a winner when he retires, but show some class Oscar and pass the torch to the next great welterweight. I truely believe that Cotto is the reason that Floyd is retiring in the first place. He didn't want any part of having to fight Cotto if he did in fact beat Oscar in a rematch. Which is a big if. Cotto is the best body puncher since Mike McCallum. Which is saying something because Mike wasn't called the Body Snatcher for no reason. McCallum was such a fierce body puncher none of the great middleweights of his day aka Sugar Ray Leonard, Thomas Hearns, or Terry Norris wanted anything to do with him. All I am saying is Oscar for the sake of boxing fans everywhere give them a super fight with Cotto and pass the torch, or if on the outside chance you win the fight with Cotto you will know you just beat the best welterweight in the world when you left the game, at worst you just lost to the best welterweight in the world. There is no shame in that. If anymore movitivation is needed just think of the revenue that would come of it if you fought in Madison Square Garden where Cotto has a huge following with the Puerto Rican community vs Oscar with the big Mexican following sounds like money to me but what do I know I am just a fan.
