    Your last statement proves you are not worthy of mod status
    I genuinely had JMM winning all the 3 fights that went to the judges.

    Just to keep you happy @walrus, Manny Pac was ahead before he was brutally knocked out in their 4th fight.
    If @Master included my name there beside @walrus, I'd forgive him. And if he sez Manny was robbed despite the KO, I'd make him the administration Master.
    Once in awhile, get outside in fresh air, take a deep breath & with a deep sigh, let out all the things that's bottled up inside you & be free, & you'll get a glimpse of nirvana.

    i don't think JMM won them all and I don't think controversy was the reason for more fights £

    Manny could have said I have beaten you 3 times so why would I need to fight you again but he knew he was lucky and wanted to prove he was the better fighter.

    nooooooo, I don't really remember the circumstance round the first 3 fights but when the last one was made I don't think there was much option

Maybe that's why he gets treated this way. But when Oscar lost to Tito, I left boxing for a while.


    This one gives me that same feeling of disgust about the entire business. Casamayor vs. Santa Cruz and Foreman vs Briggs also put me at the brink. It's almost like I am colluding in something that lacks a moral underbelly-- something that is innately tenuous at best and foul at worst. I think it's called a moral compass and mine just tiled to the wrong side again.
    I don't think it should be that serious. By the way I thought Horn won. In Asia (Australian boxing is heavily influenced by Thailand) fights are scored differently and aggression and forcing the other fighter backwards is everything. Horn trained his ass off, he should be proud.

    Pac has benefitted from a couple bad decisions and been hurt by a couple. It evened out.

With Oscar-Tito it was a tail of two fights and has been knocked back and forth ever since. But Oscar put himself in that negative light at the tail end. Fans will instinctively hold a guy literally running and disengaging against them but still had that as extremely close I believe right down to one point. Briggs v Foreman and Casa vs Santa Cruz were outright robberies.
    Those two were terrible. Toney-Tiberi was another.

    I am somewhat surprised about the decision but more surprised how Manny struggled to easily destroy a journeyman.

    Didn't disagree with a word I said and can't because it is all true. But insulted me. I should learn to call people names so I can be popular.

    Since so many want to call me names I think I will explain myself. I talk to people here as if we knew each other. Very smart ass, very tongue in cheek. You all will notice I don't insult anyone. Because I mean no insult. I talk in an insulting manner because that is how friends talk. It's BSing. But insulting people is different, it's hostile. So all those that want to continue insulting me perhaps keep that in mind.
