It's too bad Aragon never met Todorov in the ring. I think in this particular instance something akin to ABC logic would've borne out: h2h, the guy who fought Mayweather razor-thin beats the guy who deserved a wide loss. Aragon simply possessed the build, strength and style to clearly beat Todorov (as Mayweather did, although he regrettably wasn't rewarded duly for it)
I had somebody yesterday in a thread tell me that Mayweather didn't get robbed and actually lost in the Olympics. He assumed I never watched it when in reality I've seen the fight more than once.
