knowledgeable poster - thuggery for being a solid poster - Cuauhtémoc1520 Great poster - E.P.T.

The talk is the same because it's coming from the same sort of people.

The worst and least knowledgeable fans in any sport tend to be the ones that follow the team or the individual that wins the most. When it comes to boxing, that doesn't mean that all fans of that guy are awful, just that the most awful fans will tend to attach themselves to that person. I'm sure that it was as true 50 years ago as it is now.

That fighter will have some fans who sincerely argue that the fighter is a 'great', but in doing so they can accept certain arguments that might call into question the extent of that greatness. You can have a reasonable discussion with people like that because fundamentally they're interested in the sport above all else.

It's not like that with the fanboys of the fighter who's on top. These people are drawn to the glory and their main source of joy in following that fighter is to gloat and to rub other people's faces in how great 'their' guy is. For them, acknowledging the flaws and the limitations of that claim to greatness defeats the purpose of the whole thing.

You're always going to get these people in every sport, especially boxing. And when Mayweather's gone they'll be attaching themselves to whoever replaces him. In 7 years time, you'll be seeing the same talk, because as long as sport itself exists, the gloating ignoramus will too.

"Margarito needs to face somebody before he gets a shot at Floyd." Even though Henry Bruseles I guess had earned a shot at Floyd.

"After he beats Margarito, they will say he was just another bum." Another built in excuse.

"Floyd already beat the lineal champ in the division in Baldomir". Floyd fanboys love to hang on that one.

I have a couple of buddies that are fanboys and they love to point out that Canelo has to earn the right to face Floyd other than Trout. Even though beating Aydin and Berto was good enough for them for the Ghost to get a shot. I have also heard them say well after Floyd beats Canelo they won't give him credit and they will just look for somebody. Same old same old.
Who cares what they say Floyds cherry picker rep is set in stone at this point. Point proven the guy hasn't fought anyone thats his legacy. Looking great against the guys he's supposed to beat and coming up with excuses on the fights he's supposed to fight.

Nah. There's something different. They can't use the Arum excuse this time. Canelo and Mayweather are both GBP fighters. Arum is out of the way. Canelo is too big.

So if Soto-Karass beats Berto (as he's scheduled to fight him), does he get the next shot at Mayweather? He already beat Aydin in much more impressive fashion than Guerrero did.
