You can say Pea deserved it, but Pea was only great for half of the decade. Roy was great for a little over half of the decade. Yes both had a case one guy won. So to try and diminish the award by calling it a popularity contest is quite retarded since the guy who won actually earned it and deserved it. And, the same thing would have been for Whitaker if he would have won it.
You didn't say it but you insinuated that Pac only won it because he it was a "farce and a popularity contest" when he actually won it because he earned it and deserved it.
So no one deserved it except Pac?
Oscar was more popular but he didnt really do anything from 1990-99 to be honest. Wins against some faded legends. Gift decisions, etc. When it comes to recent FOTD voting it will always come down to the more popular fighter.
Roy and Sweet Pea
Pac and Floyd
Is that to say Pac has no case? No because that would be stupid. Thats just like people who say Floyd had no case.
