But thats not what this thread is about. If you voted "12 round schooling, then you are most likely of the opinion that a win by skill, will, intelligence is much more impressive than just brute strength, force and power. I also share that opinion. To me, a fighter who uses his boxing ability to outsmart and outbox his opponent even if it's through 12 rounds is more impressive than someone just going in there and throwing, throwin, throwing until a KO's is reached.
So, as someone who shares this opinion, I've always felt that there should be a rubber match between Williams and Quintana.
Each fighter pretty much schooled each other in the best way they can. Quintana made Paul look like a novice amateur for 12 whole rounds and Williams knocked the ***** out of Quintana in ONE round.
Now this question is for those who chose "12 round schooling", If you feel what Quintana did was more impressive than what Williams did, do you feel a rubber match is needed to determine the better man of the two? Not who is the best fighter, but who has each other's number. I know Quintana did'nt school Williams for 12 whole rounds, but he did use his boxing ability to put a clinic on the physically gifted Williams.
What say you?
I agree with you, but on this site is is commonplace for people to refer to Pauls loss to Quintana as an "off night", then I ask myself well then did Quintana have an off night in the rematch? Or any fighter who ever lost had an off night?
I think there should be a 3rd fight.
