- Matthysse gains 13 lbs overnight, but no one is crying about him moving up to welterweight.
- Matthysse hasn't beaten anyone worth mentioning at 140, besides Alexander, who isn't even special. Yet he is the next Carlos Monzon. Broner beats the same level of fighter but he is just a can-crusher and needs to step it up
Why these types of standards for different fighters. It's bad enough with just the double standards.
That's because they are being emotional like a bunch of women. If they don't like the guy, fine, don't watch him. Ignore him. But, to go out of your way and dig up old posts and photos of him, just goes to show Broner is affecting their lives in a negative way. I can't see how a person would pick being miserable over being happy. If he makes you upset and you don't like being upset, don't watch him, don't read threads about him, ignore him. I guess some people just aren't smart enough to realize that.
I just want my fellow boxing fans to be happy. lol
