Margarito at 150----- FOR A 154 Lb belt!!! cmon!!!
Now JMM wants it but Pac is saying NO, not at 140, So JMM is willing to climb to 147......Martinez wants it but Pac wont do a "catchweight"...lmao
Wont fight a 140, wont fight at 147 (Cotto and Hoya), Wont fight at 154 only 150?
What the hells is going on , Will the WBC, WBA, IBF, and WBO, create some more belts? 142, 145, 150?
"Fans" also say, They sign because "Manny is the man"....well when Floyd is and was the man.. Why didn't Pac sign?...or that only applies one way?
The casual fans need to learn these things!
he fought hoya at WW
Marg at 151
And you forget that cotto was 146 lbs in his last weigh in before the pac fight
You say why wont he fight anyone at their proper weight, well why should he have to be the guy cutting all the corners? When he fought Hoya, you conviently forget that he had just moved up to LW only a few months prior..it was basically a 130 lb fighter in there. When he fought Cotto he had just finished fighting Hatton at 140. Manny has had to do some moving as well.
Why should Manny lose just because a guy has 30 lbs on him? thats like losing under unfair circumstances.
He fought Marg at 151, well that was higher than what Cotto fought him at.
