Floyd Mayweather Jr. will retire again, Pacquiao vs. Cotto Plan B.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. can retire if he wants to and Manny Pacquiao will just end up fighting whom he wants to.

Amid reports that the American superstar has “retired” a second time, Pacquiao watched as Miguel Cotto stopped Yuri Foreman yesterday to crown himself as the new WBA super-welterweight champion.

Bob Arum had said that if Cotto wins, and the fight with Mayweather doesn’t push through, then he might push for a second match between Pacquiao and the new super-welterweight champion from Puerto Rico.

That’s Plan B, as far as Arum is concerned, even if the Top Rank president reportedly isn’t buying Mayweather’s retirement episode, which came out of The Examiner the other day, hook, line and sinker.

Michael Koncz, Pacquiao’s chief adviser, talked to www.insidesports.ph yesterday about the possibility of a rematch between Pacquiao and Cotto, who was stopped inside 12 rounds by the Pinoy icon last November.

Koncz talked about a “minor discussion” within Team Pacquiao just as they left the Yankee Stadium after the Cotto victory. The Canadian adviser to the world’s greatest fighter said they’re going “to see what happens.”

A rematch with Cotto should give Pacquiao a crack at the “Eighth Wonder,” an eighth world title in eight different weight classes. So far, he’s the only fighter in history to have seven world titles in differnt weight classes.

Still, it’s the fight with Mayweather which everybody’s been hoping to see in November.

For one, facing Cotto at 154 lb may put Pacquiao at a disadvantage.

While Pacquiao had faced Oscar dela Hoya, Cotto and Joshua Clottey at 147 lb, he’d never weighed in heavier than 142 because his handlers feel that’s as far as he can go, and climb the ring at around 149.

Cotto must have climbed the ring way over 160 pounds against Foreman.

“Mabigat na masyado ang laban sa 154 (A fight at 154 would be too heavy),” a Team Pacquiao insider said was how Pacquiao had reacted.

Mayweather said in a videotape that he wants another “year or a couple of years off boxing” and if he does then it should dash all hopes that the superfight between him and Pacquiao would ever happen.

Aside from Cotto, also lining up for a shot at Pacquiao are former welterweight champion Antonio Margarito and Juan Manuel Marquez.

Pacquiao’s only option is to fight Mayweather Jr.

HOLLYWOOD – Manny Pacquiao was vocal enough to say he no longer wants to have anything to do with former champion Juan Manuel Marquez finally closing the possibility of a third fight between him and his long-time Mexican nemesis.

Walang manood diyan kapag si Marquez ang kalaban. Sinong manood pa diyan?” Pacquiao said emphatically turning down a fight against the same man who forced him to a controversial draw, which he later defeated by split decision in a big-time rematch.

With Marquez literally out of Pacquiao’s picture, the newly-crowned seven-division champion is left with no choice but to face Floyd Mayweather Jr. in what many perceive as one of the biggest matches ever in boxing history.
