Nah.....you're trippin' not even JMM thought he won every round in the 3rd fight....he said it was close but thought he won. I think JMM won the last one by 2 rounds myself, but that's not considered a "robbery".....its an unpopular decison. You're silly to claim it was a "shut out". I can't even take you seriously talking complete nonsense like that.

Great excuses though I have to admit,always a million and one reasons to not fight a guy.
You are not making any sense.

Answer this question.

Who will give Pacquiao a tougher fight?

Bradley?

Marquez?

Sorry Juan, it's just business

equals ROBBERY.

That statement shows the winner was chosen before the men entered the ring.

Robbery it was.

Only around 40% had the fight for Marquez.

Pacquiao dealt with both in the same manner.
How could pac argue his loss against Morales, it was clear. More people had Marquez winning than 40%, where did you get 40%.

98% didn't have Bradley losing. The list Florez posted doesn't have the American media who voted for Bradely, just American media who voted for Pac.

And that is somehow being used as a bad thing?

The mind boggles.

Only a fool will think Bradley is a tougher fight for Pacquiao than Marquez.

I think Pacquiao actually got bored against Bradley.

Choosing to fight a guy whos given you some of the toughest fights of your career, over a guy you know you can beat, should be commended.

Pac vs JMM 4 is a toss up fight.

Pac vs Bradley 2, Pac would be the solid favorite, regardless of the robbery.

anyways, youre going to think what you want..... truth is Pac chose a harder road.

Tells you all you need to know.
Ok....let's say he knew....why win the fight in the ring if he knew a loss was inevitable? Sorry...but there's absolutely no logic at all in that situation.

Fine, thats your opinion.

I dont lose with a smile, and I dont expect a world champion too, especially if its highly controversial.

I dont see 'being a man' has anything to do with it. I dont see anything manly about greeting a robbery with a smile and a handshake, swallowing it and moving on.

If someone takes that road, fine.... good for them. But if a fighter meets getting a victory they feel was stolen from them with hostility, then by all means I dont hold that against them. And certainly nothing 'manly' about getting robbed and smiling about it. Theres many other terms that could be used.... more civilised? sure. More manly? hardly.

To each their own.

It was by two rounds. But that is not the fight in question. The Bradley fight is the one on trial and anyone with any sense, knows Pacquiao got robbed.

And that list didn't have Filipino media that voter for Pacquiao either, taking out nationalistic goggles out of the question for both parties.

Check Florez link for the Marquez vs Pacquiao fight too.

Manny is notorious for being a bitch after a loss or bad performance.

When Pac lost to a shot Morales, Pacquiao claimed he lost because of the Gloves, excuse #1 for that fight. Then Pac claimed it was the blood samples that made him too weak to beat Morales, excuse #2.

When Pac KD Marquez three times in rd 1, only to get dominated the rest of the fight, Pac blamed it on the socks he wore for the fight. He said they caused him to have little blisters, EXCUSE.

When Pacquiao lost to Marquez again in the third fight, Pac blamed his terrible performance on leg cramps.

When Pac looked like shit against recent opposition that he should have EASILY destroyed, he blamed it on leg cramps again.

When Bradley got the W over Pac, Pac Shut The **** Up as soon as Arum checked him.

No getting your belt back and redeeming yourself should be commended not trying to get catch weights "Cotto" and avoiding the top fighter.... What does this fight do for him if he wins,it does nothing..

A win vs Bradley gets his belt back and erases the robbery,but Pac fans will not support Pac if he fights him,which is the sad part..

Bradley is the tougher fight in a rematch than Juan would be.....Juan has proven he could beat Pac,what does Pac have to prove?

Then again we always make excuses for guys not to fight,it has become part of boxing sadly..People care more about PPV sales,than they do legacy..

The majority of world thought Pacquiao beat Bradley.
The majority of world thought Jmm beat Pacquiao.
Big difference.
