Default Re: Pacquaio - Marquez V

this is a great question. I would say so. I mean, thinking like a casual fan, intrigue for pac-may diminished greatly with jmm's knockout of pacquiao, the same guy mayweather dominated. from a hardcore fan's perspective, pacquiao hasn't been delivering good results, while mayweather has been performing. from both perspectives, mayweather looks the superior fighter, clearly, whereas a couple of years ago they were on the same plateau.

on another note, pacquiao and jmm are so evenly matched, as evidenced by the fact that they've fought four times and leading up to the perfectly timed right hand ko shot, there was a clear, exciting ebb and flow to the action. casual and hardcore fans alike want to see if jmm can repeat his shocking win, perhaps in the same fashion, or if manny can exact revenge. it's very, very personal now.
