Pacquaio’s possible 2012 opponents

Who’s eluding who? I don’t see Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Manny Pacquiao’s updated hit list for 2012. Superfight or no superfight, the 8-division champ always gives a good show, well almost.

Margarito: Cotto hits like a girl!

Sore eye and sore loser is how I’ll describe Antonio Margarito after taking a serious beating from WBA light middleweight champ Miguel Cotto.
