Like I said, hindsight is 20/20! Not smart to play hardball with a legend, unless you're a legend (Mayweather) yourself!

Yep, Crawford and Loma both refused to fight pac. They knew the outcome. They wouldn’t even agree to move up in weight, like PAC did his whole career. Moved up in weight and schooled and outclassed his opponent despite always being the smaller guy. The boxers these days are cowards.
Afraid to TAKE A PUNCH!

I wouldn't go as far as calling them cowards, but I do think they have an unrealistic view of themselves! I think Crawford figured Manny lost to Marquez, Floyd, then Horn, so he must be the A-side, and he could call shots...WRONG! I also think Loma felt like Manny was some old, washed up, punch-drunk, former Champion, who really didn't prove anything beating Matthysse, so he must be the A-side...WRONG! Hindsight is 20/20!
