yes, unfortunately. we'll never know how great he may have been. he's already past his prime. he's inactive, and living the easy life.
i think calling out JMM is just a publicity stunt by john, after the pac win. a feather isnt going to fight a solid welter. although a loss wouldnt see him lose his feather title, it may ruin him as a fighter. a bad beating could make him old real fast at his age.
if john was an active fighter, beating all the worlds top feathers, you may have a case for calling out JMM at light welter. still, its not happening. ever.
in the 6 years since they first fought, john has had about 12 easy fights......JMM has been in with floyd, pac 4 times, casamayor, diaz, katsidis, ramos, barrera....in about 15 fights.
