But what happens if Marquez turns out to actually be competitive? What if the fight goes 12 with back & forth action & we have yet another close war? Does Manny retain his pfp status that was passed to him when Floyd took leave. Or does the head to head comparo being in Floyd's favor return him back to the #1 spot?
to me the only difference now is that marquez is past it and old
you can't compare this to the mayweather fight when mayweather is so clearly bigger and longer than marquez(aswell as juan being old). if you have any braincells you take into account floyds style of keeping you at a distance
the weight isn't the issue it's marquez's age
and if he still has anything in the tank he shouldn't make it a complete walk in the park for pacquiao
