I can't really see Pac-Ricardo Lopez happening. I know his debut was at 106 but that was before he got to world title level. I think with his youth, inexperience, and trouble taking some big punches early on from losing weight Tapia could beat him. Pacquiao vs. Hamed would have been a great fight. His progression over the years makes it interesting I'm not sure who would win that fight.
I'm not sure I want to see this fight. It would be good money for both fighters but from a fans' perspective I'd rather see Cotto go another route. If Hatton can come back and get some good wins then maybe this fight becomes a viable option.
Good articles! I saw Raynell Williams not long ago, he said he's going for gold again in 2012. Carlos Negron from Puerto Rico has turned pro at Light Heavyweight with aim to soon be a Cruiserweight, he should be really good. US Olympic alternate Shawn Porter (middleweight) has turned pro also and is something like 8-0 and has been on ESPN a couple times. Felix Diaz, a gold medalist from the Dominican Republic also turned pro and is 1-0.
