It's so true though. At the start of 2010, you asked the boxing public the following 3 questions.
Who's fighting the better opposition?
Who is more responsible for the super fight not happening?
Who's looking better in the ring?
The answer would be Pac, Floyd, Pac. Floyd had just fought Marquez and Marquez went the distance in a boring fight. Pac had just stopped Cotto in a good fight. And most viewed Floyd as not wanting to fight Pac when he started with the testing.
Fast forward today........
Pac just forced the same Marquez that Floyd wiped the floor with two years ago back up to WW and lost to him.
He's backing away from a Floyd fight when Floyd is actively pursuing the fight.
Floyd just fought a young monster in Ortiz and I guarantee if he doesn't fight Pac next he fights either Khan or Martinez, both totally legit fights. While Pac is about to fight Marquez for a 4th time or fight Bradley.
Floyd, lets be real here, was beating the ***** out of Ortiz en route to a knockout if it didn't happen in the 4th anyway.
Everything in terms of the public perception has done a complete 180 in two years, it's crazy.
