As fans sometimes this is disappointing but thats how it is. You can either choose to intelligently express your dissatisfaction, you can choose to not buy or watch the ppv, or you can choose to just enjoy the fight for what it is. This is the politics of the sport and no matter how sarcastic and condescending these threads get, nothing will ever change that.
I actually agree with this statement. But I would be satisfied if he was fighting Trout but that wouldn't make sense economically. I am just saying that nobody said Robert was anything great a few months ago so it will be fun to see how Floyd spins it.
