Best reflection of Pac and JMM head to head at their best is the first two fights.
Pac fought a great fight in the early rounds but for him to get decked in the 3rd and KTFO in the 5th is really uncharacteristic of him especially since as we know he's fought a younger JMM over 36 rounds and never even touched the canvas.
Pac's deteriorating athleticism has cost him a big part of his ability. Yes he fought well but he also looked a little lethargic at times, so early in the fight. Even my girl at the mid point of the 5th round said "he looks tired" and really she knows little to nothing about the sport.
Pac of old is no more, and that's been going on for years.
Saturday's fight made me think of RJJ vs Tarver.
Old or young Marquez still looked better in all 4 fights.
