    In your case PAC started at 106 with a pocket full of metal.

    So Pac is to blame for not agreeing to Floyds demands? We can spin it and say that Floyd was to blame for not ACCEPTING Manny's demands.

    It's funny how nobody else had an issue fighting Manny, after negotiations had broken down.

    Great performance by Duran. One of my favorite Duran moments.

    They didn't fight Cotto at 154. They tried to bring him down in weight. You're lying.... again. Pacquiao asked JMM for extra drug testing. When JMM asked Pacquiao to do the same, Pacquiao dropped the request. Again, you're full of ****.

    Keep trolling though. I know that's all you have in your life. I actually feel sorry for you.

    PS -- Canelo would knocked Pacquiao out.

    Except Floyd would've been 5 years younger and the punch would've never landed.

    Ha!

    Ok Vic!

    Cotto, Clottey, Hatton and Marg etc, had no issue with signing the contracts.

    What's with the PS?

    I think you may be right.

    Is that supposed to upset me?

    Is it because you think I'm a *******, because I've criticised Floyd?

    Ha! I'm not even a fan of Manny's. :lol:

    He's in decline now, but so far it's been a very gentle one, his form hasn't dropped off precipitously the way some guys do. He's not 100% of the fighter he was, but he's not at the stage that, say, Ali was in around during 76-77 post Manilla or Tyson in the late 90s after Holyfield I and II, for example. He's not at his highest level, but it's not like his form and physical abilities have dropped off a cliff either.

    And considering that Floyd has been fighting at Welter since 2005 or so, it would be pretty ridiculous to say that he was never in his prime at welter either. Unless we're going to hold up his performances against Hatton, Baldomir, etc as examples of a past-prime fighter.

    did you know back then the weight in was the same day of the fight and it was for 15 rounds, And I'll like to know what are you trying to say? FMJ hasn't fought anyone similar to 135Duran, 147/154Leonard/Hearns or 140/147/154 Benitez and 140 Pryor, and forget it about hagler, by the way SRR and Monzon will had kill Duran at 160, just like Robinson would had smashed FMJ at 147, they didn't have 154 back then

    Whichever way you spin it pacman said no lol.. nothing wrong with wanting a fair fight in my opinion, he even budged on the day before fight testing to 14 days, pacman still wanted 24 days due to being in heavy training..

    Ha!

    This will run for years!

    Floyd said no to Manny.

    Then the following year, in 2010, Manny agreed to the 14 days, but Floyd said that he wasn't interested in boxing, and he wanted to spend time with his family. :lol:

    Anyway, I wish I hadn't brought it up, I'm sick of discussing it. Ha!
