    And never defend that belt?? Margarito was weight drained and without his cement gloves?? So why does Pacquiao get a free pass????

    Who cares? Ugas knew how do use his 69 inch lead hand to better effect than Antonio, he couldn`t utilize his 73 inch reach because he wasn`t any good.

    No one is talking about Ugas?? Canelo was called out because he beat Kova at his own weight class but Pacquiao beat Margo at a catch weight fight and gets rewarded??

    Everyone knows Pac's 154 WBC belt was pure bs, just a gimmick to say he won titles in 8 divisions. Canelo beat Kovalev who was the reigning 175 WBO champ though, way more prestige than Pac's Marg win.

    Dude fight happened 10 years ago and you still malding lol

    You do know that Pac started his career at 112 and skipped 115 - 118 so that's like 10 divisions..........

    Pac is one of the ATGs and you have freedom to make 1000 hate / agenda threads it ain't gonna change anything lol

    It's not about Pac, it's about some of Pac's most rabid fans who are some of Canelo's biggest haters criticizing Canelo for doing something similar but not as bad as Pac did with Margarito.

    can't blame the fighter, blame the federations (gotta keep saying this).
    everything that's wrong with boxing begins and ends with the federations.
    fighters are just manipulating a broken system.

    I don’t think anybody care about the weight lol.
    That’s one of Pac masterful performance.
    Pac has so many, from the drumming of MAB, Morales to Diaz, Oscar, Hatton, Margarito.
    Every single one of those are perfect or near perfect performances.
    I couldn’t name any fighters in the last 20 years that had that many ‘WOW’ fights

    "and without his cement gloves??"

    You hate Pac so much, that you would allow Margo to enter the ring with fully armed drug cartel.

    Remember when Canelo failed 2 tests
    Bribed his way out of a manslaughter charge (look it up - it has been hidden about as well as the Sconiers fight, but there is info still around)
    Beat up a 106lb fighter outside of the ring, breaking his jaw, then getting his brother to take the blame.

    But hey, let's talk about free passes.

    Canelo gets alot of hate in this forum also. I think he cements the Kov win if he gets another title or unify at 175. The win over Kovalev is already impressive, but the haters for sure will disagree
