Thats why I said well they say they do, I got suspicious of this while all the drama of Margarito Mosley was going on, No testing for that fight I wonder why? and if you look at Shanes fights leading up to that and after that its obvious to me he was on that good ****

Not sure I understand what you are saying. Are you trying to say that they haven't had many positives with athletes that they have longitudinal data on? Have you seen any statistically relevant reports on the efficacy of longitudinal data in conjunction with other ****ytical testing methods? Does the longitudinal data make not using CIR on every sampling a non-issue? Point is these are all relevant and often used risk management tools that one must consider when ****ting or supporting any testing program. My guess is that since they don't have that baseline data they do CIR testing on every sample.

Hello daprofessor. I'm not sure we've ever met before so I think you have me confused with someone else.

My condolences to you on the tragedy involving your husband and his motorcycle accident. I hope Paul is able to fully recover and soon.

Cool Pacquiao or Mayweather...who exceeded our expectations more?

Yes another Pacquiao-Mayweather poll....

Who among these two great fighters have done more with less talent and skills, has accomplished more with lesser expectations? Who among the two always surprised us and has proven us wrong more than the other?

You know what, both sides are commiting the same crimes.

It's really entertaining now when you think of it.

Manny Pacquiao is an underachiever. Even if you thought he was going to beat Oscar de la Hoya in 2008, nobody would have expected he would then beat Cotto, Margarito, Mosley, Hatton, etc.

Floyd Mayweather is a great fighter, but you could probably say he achieved less than many expected.

Default Re: Pacquiao or Mayweather...who exceeded our expectations more?

To answer the question, Pacquiao has exceeded expectation much more.

Simply put, Floyd was grew up in boxing. Dad and 2 uncles were talented pros. Floyd was an olympian, and was groomed to be a champion (or multiple) as soon as he turned pro. So him winning a lot of title is more or less warranted by his abilities. Though winning it 6 times was exceeding expectations as well.

On the other hand, Pac was a wild swinging slugger who has only his power and fighting heart as a foundation. Plus he was already stopped. He was an underdog on his first title shot for starters, simply because Sasakul was better skilled. And it showed, it was only his power that saved the day. Then he got stopped again and few people thought he'll be a champion again. But he did. And then the achievements piled up, the win over Ledwaba, Barrera and beyond.

So in terms of expectations, it was Pacquiao.

also post some instances when each one has proven you wrong. for example, i bet against pac in the oscar fight and almost bet against him again for the cotto fight. from then on, i promised not to bet against him again. also for floyd, i thought that mosley would have given him some challenge for at least 3 to 4 rounds but floyd absolutely dominated him after a shaky round 2.
