Looks like Manny got off the juice.
Yeah but there are rumors that Marquez is on the juice.
They are all on the juice one way or another. Most just know how not to get caught.
wow. We want Mayweather- Marquez!!!!
Already happened. Marquez was outclassed badly. It wasn't even close. Money made him look like a 4th rate fighter.

No one else for him to fight. Him and Paq have missed their opportunity for the enormous fight.
Lol at all the money boxing missed out on. Sport sucks.
Go youtube that fight. Believe me it was that one sided. Mayweather took him to school & it was not at all close. Marquez couldn't even get close without eating leather & when he did get close Floyd's speed & counter punching ate him alive. The overall speed of Mayweather was far too much for Marquez. That fight was hugely one sided.
Guys still make way more than UFC fighters.
Because of promoters. The sport has been compromised because of the inmates running the asylum. They make more money, but the sport itself sucks. UFC, the best fight the best. You earn a title shot, you get a title shot. Boxing needs a Dana White type of guy so that the right fights happen at the right times.
A good comparison would be the big 10 and sec. Big 10 makes more money. Is it a better product? Not even close.

Im not doubting that. I knew Floyd had beat him, I haven't seen it. I just don't know what else Floyd would do. He has said he wants to fight twice in 2013.
Nobody can have an impact on boxing like Dana White because fighters wouldn't agree to be part of an organization.
Timothy Bradley or Saul Canello. Maybe Marquez-Bradley.
And that is why the sport will continue to be compromised.
As long as guys are making money I doubt they really care. If they profits start to see a significant drop we might see some change.
I love American, I watched the fight illegally from my phone with one headphone in while at the bar. That's what they call a punchers chance, Pac was in control until that right haymaker came out of Marquez's ass.
Or Marquez got on it.
Let it be known. When Adrien Broner runs threw everyone he fights and gets his chance at Floyd is when we will all see Floyd fall. Broner is the truth. I've never been so impressed by a fighter since I saw Floyd. Broner is as good as Floyd now and he's only 20. He just has to climb the divisions like Floyd did before he'll have a chance at Mayweather and by that time Floyd would've probably retired or he'll dip on Broner because Broner's better. I'm telling all you boxing fans now the next big time fighter is ADRIEN BRONER. If you haven't seen him fight I suggest you youtube him. Kid is young, fast, powerful, extremely smart and is a defensive genius. Very similar to Floyd actually.
Broner is the truth, I have been following him for a minute. Too bad him & Floyd will miss each other. Mayweather is on the wrong side of 30 & has maybe 5 fights tops left in him, before his talent & speed start to diminish. No one wants to see a guy n his prime beat up a guy past his.
I watched Teddy Atlas on First Take on Friday and Saturday and he swears that Marquez was robbed by the judges in the second and third fight against Pac. Atlas says that Marquez won both of those fights and Atlas knows his shit. I guess Marquez is just his achilles heel.
The only big fight out there now for Mayweather would be Bradley. That could be an entertaining match-up.
My thoughts all along were that Money would destroy Pac....the Marquez fights bare that out. Money fights the same style at Marquez, just worlds better at it. If Pac thought Marquez was a skilled counterpuncher, his head would have spun against Money.
Isnt this the 2nd straight fight Manny has lost?
Yeah but he got screwed in the Bradley fight. That was the worst decision I have ever seen in my life. Paq tore Bradley up and still lost. Bradley was even shocked when he won.
