    One of the most underrated 126 pounders of all time. He'd be a challenge for anyone at that weight.

    I can honestly see a case for him being the best FW ever. He's sooooo underrated. RIP champ, it's all part of God's plan.

    Extremely talented and yest so forgotten due to his relatively lack of longevity and few filmed efforts. For thos who haven't seen him, look him up. Took a young Arguello to school, that's for sure.

    Good job on the incompetent IBHOF for NOT inducting Marcel before he died. I guess guys like Mancini were more deserving, right?

    I swear, boxing has the worst HOF.

    I was hanging out with Shibata the night after the fight. So dejected, he began to stress eat, like he was on quarantine or something. That is the very night he invented Shibata bread, before the name was anglicised. And that's how good Marcel was.
