Default Re: Has Marquez wasted the last few years chasing Pacquaio

He could be in some great fights outside of Pacquiao again and again.
Nope. He's made a ton of friggin money going up against an ATG.

The other guys you noted (Kahn, Matthysse, Rios) are younger, stronger and fresher than Pacquiao and would arguably be tougher fights for Marquez. Not to mention they'd make him a lot less money.

Also, please quit using the word "rob". You can say you felt he won, or he got the short end of the decision, etc. But a robbery is like Lara-Williams, Abril-Rios, etc. The Pac-Marquez fights were close, competetive and could've gone either way.
