Why is it that if Manny wins he fights someone tough like Rios, but if JMM wins he fights some handpicked contender who is not tough? That is what I mean, JMM either fights mediocre guys or fights for a title or fights Mayweather and Pacman. No inbetween guys like Pacman fought with Margarito and Cotto etc.
Handily outpointed current FW Champion Orlando Salido in his prime, outpointed a very competitive Barrera (ATG), knocked out #1 rated Casamayor for the first time in his first fight at Lightweight to become champion, knocked out a prime Juan Diaz for the first time to defend his Lightweight Championship, and knocked out his mandatory in Katsidis.
Welter had bigger names, JMM wasn't suited for it at the time Manny moved up, and he fought and beat the best wherever he was at.
Your "JMM isn't that good, just has a good style for Pac" argument is getting old.
