And that's why you don't understand. It's not a game, it's the most difficult and personal of sports celebrated in cultures throughout the world which is going to define these men well beyond their deaths. These men gave their all over 36 rounds, and Marquez feels a sense of injustice shared by an overwhelming majority of viewers who felt he was the better man in their last encounter.

WBO Welterweight Champion, the first Mexican national to win 4 major world titles in 4 different weight classes, the Pound for Pound king, dethroning the ATG fighter of the decade, overcoming 9-1 odds in the most watched sporting event in Mexico's history. That was taken from him.
