That's cool, but lets stick to the script.
I've been watching boxing way before Floyd started in the pros.

Ok, well the script is that I think your criticizing Barrera for something that you would applaud if Floyd had done it, thats all.

His team may feel that way, but surely JMM cant have too many reservations, he totally schooled pacman in that fight, and there are plenty of people who would agree with that

PAc did get schooled by marquez and i believe same thing will happen in the rematch so how the **** is that trolling??

O yea and I really do believe that Soto will knock pacman out and im not the only one who thinks that way so again, how the **** is that trolling?

Yea and I critizie barrera for all those classy barrera moments. Mckineey, morales, pacman, marquez. He had to get pathetic against all those guys.
Fair enough.

I think the problem is, that fighters get pigeon holed as a certain "type" of fighter, hence barrera is deemed a brawler, therefore everyone expects him to brawl, what do people want, a ****ing apology for not getting KTFO!

Great point. People are just ****ed (as someone said in my thread a few weeks ago) that they got ****ed on the PPV. But you can write those letters to HBO, not to the Barrera camp.

IMO this fight (as with the Winky vs Bernard fight) should have been free. Thats another subject though.

But really, if you sat down with a beer and watched the fight for free, then went to spend 50$ on something else, I doubt you would care.

For me, Im just glad I can actually watch these blokes, especially Legends like Barrera and Morales, I sometimes wonder why people follow boxing with all the complaining they do!

Well your wrong and I don't wish to make this about Floyd. I hate that I always get dragged in to a Floyd debate. Can't we just stick to the topic at hand?

No problem, and just to clear the record i'm not trying to be harsh on MAB. His s a hall of fame fighter that I have enjoyed for many many years..

I dont really get peoples fascination with the way Morrales went out, it was a short, embarrasing night for him in which he essentialy was forced to quit, something he NEVER DOES and which Im sure he hated.

One more time: The object of a fight is to win. Barrera gave himself more of an opportunity to win than Morrales, who wasnt going anywhere with that strategy.
MAB started out good the first two rounds. But then nothing after that. I'd agree in a sense he fought his fight. But he was mainly there to survive and not to win. If he was there to win, it was obviously he needed a knock out [or kds] after the 9th round. Waiting and counter-punching ain't gonna do it in the last rounds if you are trailing by that much. He should have stepped up and fought if he really wanted that win.

Again, MAB came to survive and not to fight.

MAB knows he's behind on points. Did he ever try to win the fight in the last 3 rds???? I don't think so.. He's just there to survive & earn a Paycheck.
