Too far, let's not talk about his life.

He did however quit though in the 2nd fight vs Pryor, wrong but I guess forgivable since he gave us so many great fights.

MVC I am starting to think you are just against any human being in some deranged way that isn't black. How can you make such accusations about a true warrior. Lets see your idol Floyd take a beating from a young up and comer when he's past prim and see what he does. You're a disgrace.

? You're a dumbass.

I'm in no way a racist and would never discriminate against any race.

That being said, I bash on Duran/SRL for the things they did, along with Manny/Floyd/Klits. That's Black/White/Asian.

Arguello QUIT in the 2nd fight.

I'm simply stating a fact. If you don't like it, then **** right off.

I said Arguello is a warrior and deserves all the respect he gets. But he did indeed quit, that's a fact that remains.

So it's ok for you guys to make fun of Ortiz/Klit for quitting but it's not ok for me to state a truth (Arguello quitting)? What is that?

It's ok to make fun of modern day fighters but not ok to make fun of past greats?

He was at the end of his career he didnt have it anymore after that knockdown you could just see it slump out of him, not a lack of heart just wanting to be there for his family ect, he knew he was retiring after that fight and no need to take extra damage against a guy you know you cant beat anymore

It just doesn't seem like something a champion would do. You would never see Floyd quit like that.

Floyd would always get up and always puts everything on the line, even his life in every fight.

Even if Floyd fought the Klits in there and got knocked down, I'm sure he would get up and keep fighting. That's what I think.

I believe Arguello shoulda toughed it out in there.

Not lack of heart, just a very smart fighter. He had 24 rounds to figure out how to beat Pryor and the second fight was even more an uphill battle than the first. He stayed down because he knew there was nothing he could do. Pryor was too fast and young and stronger at 140. Yet Arguello is rated higher in the ATG in my mind.

The thing is... If Floyd is knocked out today by a younger/fresher/faster guy, everyone would bash him non stop 24/7 even though Floyd is past his prime/legs somewhat gone, etc. Floyd is 36...

Arguello was only 30 at the time, he had something left. It wasn't like he was completely shot. He even said in the post fight conference "I wasn't that hurt, I didn't want to risk my life." It just makes it seem like he was there for a paycheck.

I don't think we'll ever see Floyd quit like that. Just saying.

What does THIS have to do with anything I just said.

Are you just saying this out of desperation?

You just gotta give Floyd the benefit of the doubt, he has shown to be resilient, and never gives up.

And Floyd ranks ahead of both in ATG rankings.

So you're saying. It's ok to quit as long as you're known and have been in great fights? That's such a shit mindset man. Like I said before, Arguello should have fought it out. He even said "I wasn't that hurt, I didn't want to risk my life"

He was mentally done, he quit.

He was at the end of his career and felt that he didn't want to risk sustaining permanent injury.

99% fighters lose the spark at some point, it's transient, he had been through a lot in his career and it was the end of the road.

You really must be desperate for some love and attention flower.
At least MVC can troll with humour,albeit a tad misguided.
