Default How come nobody talk about old semi shot Oscar taking Floyd to SD?

? I think it's impressive how Old Semi Shot Oscar took Prime Floyd to a SD Battle.

Yeah that weight advantage at 154 really helped him

Because they want to be taken seriously. Making certain statements can flush your credibility straight down the shitter. Lines like Marquez-pacquiao 3 was close or Oscar earned a SD in his Mayweather fight

Oscar did do very well considering his opponent.

He was semi retired and inactive.

The fight was at 154 pounds though, and Floyd also won a minimum of 8 rounds.

Oscar was still knocking people out and had a TITLE.

The SD was not a popular call....MANY saw it as a UD....

Marquez-Pacquiao 3 wasn't close?

Because the split-decision was laughable.

Oscar did do a good job defensively of blocking many of Floyd's shots. He performed fairly well considering his inactivity and stage he was in his career.

Where did you get these stats from? Shocking to see that there's more people who had it a damn draw or even a pacquiao "victory" over a wide 9-3 decision for Marquez. I learned a long time ago that the majority of fans don't understand what they're watching but still

It was a gift SD. Mayweather won clearly. Much like Cotto against Mayweather, De La Hoya had his molments, but shouldn't have been given that many rounds.

I actually scored Pac/Juan III a draw when watching live, but I was watching with my friend. B4 the fight, we said there's no way Juan's getting a decision and whenever there was a round that was somewhat close, we would say "The judges will give that to Pacquiao."
With some of those rounds, we didn't actually think he won the round, but we just figured that's a round they would give to him.

Despite all that, I had it a draw. The next 2 times I watched it, I had it 8-4 for Juan both times

Nearly any Pacquiao fan is going to say it, I think a lot of people don't know what they're seeing, Lederman had it 8-4, I don't know how you get that.
