Default Everyone saying we should boycott Pac-Marquez IV is right!

Why should any boxing fan choose to watch a fight between two top 10 p4p fighters engaging in a rematch shortly after a controversial decision? Especially if they're already had two earlier fights that were great bouts?!

That this fight is being made at all is a bad day for boxing! We, as boxing fans, need to show our disapproval at top 10 fighters being matched against each other, and that we are not interested in seeing rematches to fights that end in a controversial decision. Obviously, this goes double if a challenger appears to beat a reigning champion but loses by decision.

I hope everyone will come together as boxing fans and send a clear message that we are uninterested in fights between top fighters, preferring instead an endless stream of fights where a champion fights fringe contenders and gatekeepers, that we universally and unquestioningly accept the cards of judges and see no need for a fight that might overturn the decision of judges from a previous bout.

Boycott this card! Who needs the possibility for justice anyway?

(Yes, for anyone who hasn't gotten it yet, this is a parody thread. Yes, I am prepared for a bunch of people to take me seriously, and yes, I do think Marquez deserves a chance to have history recognize him, as it probably should have after the 3rd fight.)

Edit: Oh, and I'll understand if anyone isn't buying because the undercard sucks, or because they (like me) haven't been buying any Pac or Floyd cards since after Pac-Cotto because the two should have fought each other.

Your logic is irrelevant and I didn't read what you said

But let me simplify:

Pacquiao Vs Marquez OR Bradley

Who the **** wants to see that bigheaded goon get another payday in a boring ass fight? (Bradley)

I'd rather watch another technical chess/mind game with Pac Marquez...



I aint paying either way.

I wouldn't pay money to see it, personally, but I can see it's appeal in some regard as it is still a close fight between two P4P fighters. I think people are (justifiably) angry about the Mayweather fight not getting made, by continuing to support Mayweather and Pacquaio fighting other opponents, it is endorsing them to not fight each other. Marquez is a better option than Bradley and Cotto, I would have an interest in the fight but not enough to pay big money to see it, or not as much as in past fights between the pair. Just my opinion.

I just wonder who's joining in the satire, and who really is only paying attention to the thread title.

Great GIF, bballchamp.

This one has "HBO replay" written all over it unless a friend buys it. That said, you make some damn good points and a fourth fight isn't unprecedented.

I, like many people, have them 1-1-1, so this should be the tie breaker.

I don't mind this fight. Better than Bradley or Cotto.
Pacquiao won the fight against Bradley, Cotto got tko'd by Pac and also said that he wont go up to 154 after Margarito.

I'd much rather this than rematches against Cotto and Bradley.

good fight to watch, silly one to buy

Ultimately, we can influence others by where we put the money in our wallets to. Purchasing this fight lets boxing promoters, especially bob arum know, that it's okay to create robberies because we'll buy the rematch regardless.
