Default What do you make of this article?

Seems a bit harsh on Pac and i know for a fact that pac would KTFO of Marquez if they fought now but JMM truly owned Pac in them 2 fights.

Thoughts?

I am a fan of pac's and in my heart I thought he lost the first fight (put I was a happy he got the decision) and won a close second fight.

IMO i think JMM won the 2nd more convincingly. However i dont really want to see a third fight, too late.

The second fight was a robbery but PAC would win the rubber match at this point

JMM, for the most part, outboxed Pac after the first round of the first fight. But he didn't win enough rounds to overcome the 10-6 round 1. Even with one of the judges only counting 10-8. The second fight was very close, too close to call a robbery either way.
I like the idea of a third, especially at 140. It would be nearer to a natural weight for JMM, and it would give Pac an opportunity to wipeout the only question mark of the last five years.

JMM will have to beat diaz more convincingly than last time for people to get interested in a 3rd fight.

I read the first paragraph of that biased bull**** and clicked X...

...kidding. I read it. But how does JMM owing Pacquiao make Pacquiao less of a fighter? Lots of great fighters have had their numbers had by a particular guy...Ken Norton had Ali's number, Traver had Jones, and Taylor had Hopkins, just to name a few...

...one thing I am pretty sure of though, if JMM and Pac fought now, the grand total of times Pac put JMM on his ass would ultimately end up being more than 4.

Marquez was a great fighter who pushed Pacquiao to his limit at that time and weight. It's a very good thing and made each guy a better man for the fights they had and people will remember those fights.
