I happen to think Pac would beat both Leonard and Trinidad at 147 after seein that Cotto fight but would lose to the same Duran that quit against Leonard because Duran wouldnt be frustrated having to chase Pac all over the ring.
As far as my previous post I was just alluding to the fact that while I wouldnt take anything away from Marquez The people crying weightdrained do have a legitimate case. Marquez was lucky to have any fight at all. He was no longer the #1 at 126lbs and couldnt land a big fight to save his life if it werent fo Pac-Barrera2 being delayed. Because of that Pacquiao had the extra year and a half and perhaps....outstay his welcome at 130lbs the same way Cotto did at 140lbs.
I was talking about Robinson, not Leonard, but are we talking about the same Leonard that was faster, stronger than Manny, longer reach and in my opinion a better boxer? I'm sorry, I just can't see it, I guess depending on how he "beats" Tito at 147, some were saying by 2-4 rds KO....and we both know, that isn't possible, now, Marquez wouldn't get fights at 126-130 because no one wanted to take the risk and Nacho did some stupid management on his part, Marquez just had bad luck with management early on his career and his style isn't boring (well in my opinion), I like all styles, but hey can't really blame you, but yea, still it doesn't change the fact that Manny's kryptonite is Marquez from 126-140 fights will be competitive (140 not so much but the opening rounds).
