Now that hatton is out of the window who do you want to see paulie fight?
Ortiz? Lopez? Is a fight with bradley possible (Top Rank GBP feud aside)?

maybe Lopez would be a fun fight, then Brook/Alexander after, i think GBP's plan was to put him in with Alexander in a unification but Matchroom fucked that up :lol:
could this happen ?
mayweather still holds the wbc welter strap....paulie wba...
could mayweather come back to welter for a 'unification' fight....and for a sweetner which would be an easy to sell fight, against someone who he may consider easy opposition, and another belt win to add to the cv.....paulie wouldn't be expected to win, maybe wouldn't expect himself to win, but would see this as a nice way to finish up in the sport in a huge fight with nice wages at the end of it, more wages than any other fight out there could generate.

could that happen ??
very possible, basically if alexander beats brook i guarantee GBP will make Alexander/Paulie for the "undisputed" welterweight championship and the winner to face Floyd, it makes sense for them. I'd have liked to have seen this fight a few years ago but Paulie hasn't got the speed he used to have, still a very good boxer but without power he relied on his speed which is maybe missing now
Matthysse would man-handle and knock mr funny eyes out in under 10
:nono if youre talking about paulie, nobody's knocking him out
matthysse would bust up No-power-Paulie good and proper. I'd fear for Paulie's health.
:nono Paulie is a tough guy, he's hung in there with good fighters before and he can still do it, chin of iron that lad
I know he is tough, but he'd be too tough for his own good. Mattyhsse would stop this guy, 100% guaranteed. Matthysse is vicious.
matthysse might stop him but hes not knocking him out
id fancy Paulie of the cotto fight to cause lucas a few issues, it wouldnt be clear cut, not paulie doesn't have that speed, still got skills and is a great boxer with a great left hand and iron chin, but the mobility aint there like it was, he's making it work at a level though
