"Floyd's still the most skilled fighter in the sport. He knows how to win - not how to lose.  It sure ain't Pacquiao who would pose a threat."

This was the quote from Roger Mayweather, the uncle of fighter Floyd Mayweather Jr.  It is Floyd who is most likely to fight the hugely popular Filipino boxer, Manny Pacquiao should he beat his next opponent, Juan Manuel Marquez, on July 18 (betting on this event is available to those living outside the US at Sportingbet.com  and within the US and Canada at Bookmaker.com)

Pacquiao is more likely to take on Mayweather, Jr. following demands by Miguel Cotto that Pacquiao needs to be over 140 lb or he won't fight him.

After 17 months out the ring, the former five-division champion, Mayweather Jr., finally announced his comeback earlier this month. 

Mayweather made some controversial comments this week when he declared that Great Britain's Ricky Hatton should "retire now".

"I know my dad gave Ricky a game-plan to box: Move your head, be smart and keep your hands up.

"But I'm not surprised by what happened because I made the blueprint of how to beat Ricky Hatton when I knocked him out.

"He should have walked away then because I beat him mentally and physically. He should quit now."
