like thinking fighting cotto at 154 makes up for everything, even though pac destroyed him and most think bradley would be a tougher fight than the cotto vs floyd fight.
the thread is about how manny will be remembered. not floyd. stay on topic. I know its hard because Manny got KTFO! But seriously, haven't you gotten over it yet?

That is what they will remember. That and skip looking like a cry baby on ESPN after Pac was put to sleep by a right hand. Only now does everyone see the concern of PEDS…

So to sum it up, the casual fans see the irony of it all. They see a media made product put to sleep and that even his most dearest fans only now act like PEDS are a problem. The problem is, Floyd made notice years ago and Pac refused on every level. So much so that he ducked a $50-100 million pay day to fight a loser named Clottey for about 90% less. Will they remember that? No, but they now know why the fight was never made and that was Pac didn't ever submit to testing. The same testing he wants others to take but not himself.

To this day, thanks to ESPN, the casuals know that Pac has never submitted to extra testing but that both JMM and Pac passed the same tests that Pac thought was good enough when he refused to fight Mayweather all these years. Yet JMM is now the one that is supposed to be the cheater?

its gonna change from person to person since everyone gets diffrent impressions from each fight. alot of ppl will primarily remember the JMM KO loss, but just as many will remember the hatton KO the most, or the DLH win.

in the end ppl will remember his career as a whole. this idea that a fighter only leaves one stand out impression that sticks with ppl and everything else fades away with time is nonsense. ppl will remember all of it more or less equally. the last fight sticks out right now because its just that, the last fight.

also let me add i think even the casual fan for the most part is smart enough to realize no fighter at this level is scared of another fighter.
