Now after tonight people immediately seem to think this affects the Mayweather Pac debate because MARQUEZ beat him. At best it raises Mayweathers win against Marquez slightly, though it was a farcical event with Marquez coming up 2 weight classes and then getting cheated at the scales. Marquez's win doesnt excuse the May Pac fight not happening, nor does it decide who would have won if they had thought.
Why is it that everyone hates on the triangle theory until affects a fighter they like?
I realise people are gonna think this is me hating on either american or black fighters because of the examples ive used so ill try think of some European examples to back myself up (which im sure there are loads). And i think Ward and Mayweather are great fighters by the way so im not responding to anyone who labels me a 'hater'.
having just seen a thread which said that last night somehow hurt Mayweathers legacy i should say i disagree with that too... Last night was nothing to do with Mayweather, it was about two all time greats coming together in a great fight, with an unbelievable finish.
