Floyd is scared of a trully skilled hungry lion. I'm disappointed in him. He hasn't fought an elite since Marquez.
That's boxing my friend. Has gotten to the point where people are more concerned with not losing than getting a great win. It is what it is and why I don't really watch the sport anymore.

The Kendall Holt and Lamont Peterson fights were quite entertaining...but of course, you probably had never seen him fight before Alexander or Pacquaio

and Floyd's not going to fight him...If he does, and wins, it'd be a top 10, maybe top 5 win on his resume.

Marquez probably wants another shot at Pacquaio, one for the money, and two because he has the psychological advantage of knowing he stopped him.

Marquez had the choice to fight Tim and said no, I'll fight manny.
Neither of them want it, Manny definitely doesn't want it again.

Floyd really doesn't want it.
He doesn't want to face a real young lion.
Yeah right whatever.

I truthfully believe Bradley beat Manny, and I'm not a Bradley fan at all. When I rewatched the fight, Bradley showed tremendous defense, he was hardly ever caught clean, and landed much cleaner shots. Compubox was bull**** in that fight, Pacman was given credit for all kinds of punches he never landed. Watch the fight without sound, slow it down on the exchanges, you'll see Bradley is hardly ever hit. Defense is under appreciated, he definitely won that fight. I think the majority thought Pacman won based off biased commentators, erroneous compubox numbers, and the fact most people favor aggressive fighters, as it looks like they are winning.

I don't think Bradley is the king in his weight class though, but he is very much ducked. He is ducked because it is a high risk/very low reward fight, he simply doesn't have a real fan base. I give him props for beating Manny with two ****ed up ankles, if he was healthy I think he'd of won an easy unanimous decision.

I love how the "only true fans appreciate him" logic with regard to some fighters is pretty much a direct result of those fans wanting to feel smarter than they actually are.
