If you want to talk about official weigh ins, then I want to ask:
Doesn't most of the board give Martinez credit for dominating, and surviving the 12th round, against a severely
weight-drained Chavez Jr? Didn't many agree it was a risk, because Chavez bloated up to Cruiserweight? It's argued that Chavez Jr. doesn't even belong at Middleweight and should move up 8lbs to the Super Middleweight division.
In that case, shouldn't we give Pacquiao credit for defeating Welterweights, with a difference of 2 lbs (Cotto) and 4lbs (Margarito)? Especially when Margarito, Clottey, and De La Hoya ended up bloating to Middleweight on fight night?
I don't see anybody trying to defend Chavez Jr or discrediting Martinez's performance.
