and answer the question properly.
the problem is not getting the best fights.
So why did Pac do it to Delahoya? Delahoya never cheated weight before. Pac just didn't want to be cheated. Neither did Floyd.
For the first time Pac needed to give a little in negotiations to make a fight happen. Floyd too. Floyd was willing to concede the weight penalty to make it happen, and Pac wouldn't concede to simple blood tests.
Pac killed the fight. It is what it is.
