Because size and strength is not a factor in either match up.

JMM vs. Pac have proven their styles match for great fights.

I'm not saying Pac-Bradley isn't intriguing, it is.. but so is Pac-JMM 3.

Nope. I don't think Pacquaio is scared to fight anybody.

Bob Arum is doing the cherry picking though. Without a doubt.

You're right size is not a real factor but Pacquiao is a proven ww while Marquez isnt in which is why Pacquiao vs Marquez is a clear mismatch in pac favor. If they like the same size and close to fight night weight then why not have this fight at the junior ww limit to make it more fair?

Err, because size and power isn't everything? You do know about 'styles', right?

Bradley has more going for him right now than Mosley, Hatton, Clottey etc have had to offer as far as a competitive fight with Pac goes.

I think it's been shown before that Marquez has the correct style and ring IQ to neutralize the physical advantages of Pac. Now with Pac-JMM III, while sadly not at the weight I would have wanted (140), it still remains to be seen if the stylistic and Ring IQ advantages of Marquez are still enough to overcome this physical gap.

On the other hand, while I think Bradley would still be a good choice of opponent for Pac (way below Mayweather of course), hasn't really shown enough to make some people (i.e. Roach) think that he can offer a real challenge for Pac.

I don't really see what the issue is here, both fights have pros (Marquez with his proven track record of having the style to give Pac a whole lot of trouble, and Bradley with his decent body of work at 140 and larger size compared to Marquez) and cons (Marquez fighting above his weight class and Bradley still not having proven to be an elite fighter) so in the end, both fights will be viewed as "easy" fights for Pac by a lot of fans.

Any opponent for Pac at WW or below that isn't FMJ will be viewed as a cherry pick by a lot of people, Bradley and Marquez included. So debating about which fight of the 2 is more of a mismatch is moot since the only fight that truly matters for Pac at WW and below is a fight with Floyd.

Personally, I don't mind if Pac fights Marquez or Bradley, they're both good fights.

I think Pacquiao is on steriods. Even though those fighters i mention werent at their best, its still strange that pac that started his pro career at flyweight can bust up bigger fighters faces at ww to 150 pounds like nothing? Too me there's no way pacquiao is a clean fighter.
