It's the same reason I can't really hate Margarito; I don't like him and I'm pretty sure he loaded his wraps, but I don't really know so judgement beyond the facts is arbitrary. Shane made a mistake, his reputation suffered, and has brought us exciting fights for a long time outside of that incident.
agreed. although i think he loaded his gloves against Cotto and possibly
a couple more, i dont hold a huge grudge and discrediting all of his wins and dont think he did it his whole career. it's his style of fighting that won his fights.
