If someone takes that road, fine.... good for them. But if a fighter meets getting a victory they feel was stolen from them with hostility, then by all means I dont hold that against them. And certainly nothing 'manly' about getting robbed and smiling about it. Theres many other terms that could be used.... more civilised? sure. More manly? hardly.

To each their own.
Yeah, I get angry too, but to be like Pacquiao when it doesn't matter, and all that matters is that you know the truth, show much more control and less emotional.
