Default Re: Who Accepted Defeat Like A Man - Juan Manuel Marquez or Manny Pacquiao?

Marquez upset the odds and claimed the victory that was rightfully his. Two different scenarios. think Pac "participated" in a fixed fight with TIM....meaning he knew he was going to lose ahead of time?

And JMM was the favorite going into their initial meeting.....the rematch and rubber match saw Pac as the favorite however ALL 3 encounters were close....unlike the dominant performance Pac had over TIM.

As to who took their loss better......its harder to accept a loss that could have easily gone the other way than getting robbed in a fight you clearly won. Therefore Pac was "ok" that EVERYONE felt he won over TIM even though on paper is shows a loss.
