the odds makers favored pac over marquez...

they also favored aydin over guerrero. aydin was berto's mandatory...and someone else's too...

forgot about bute. eh...

Come on prof Wth do the odd makers know. Even Steven A. Thought marquez would win and he's not even so great at calling basketball which is his sport. Most people I knew thought marquez would win or get robbed.

And let's not forget a lot of these odd makers/"experts" were favoring Bute over ward Lmfao. Some were saying ward was ducking him after he won the super six. And Froch was thinking about retirement if he lost to Bute, to me that's a pretty big win. But to each his own, right.

don't confuse the odd's makers with the talking heads. the odd's makers are there to make money for the casinos and rarely get it wrong. the talking heads/experts don't know shit about boxing! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Matthyse is the man, most fighters don't even want to face him, that should say enough in itself but hands down Marquez's impressive KO of Pac is worth all of the others wins over whomever.

In essence Marquez won 5 fights with one punch; he erased the close loss vs Pac and set the record straight on who really won those so called "close" Draw fights vs Pac and he KO'd the Pac vs Floyd fight for good.

I'd say give it to Marquez, he definitely proved he deserved it!!

JMM....at 39, he's still developing and redefining himself in boxing. He's a little big man. Sometimes counted out. Sometimes under appreciated. But he continues to shake up the sport. On his win and knockout of Manny Pacquaio, he gets my vote not only for the impressive nature of his performance, but because he put a stop to so-called mega-fight media pandering, ridiculous all-time great labeling (mind you, before a career is even finished), and he single-handedly (pun intended) returned boxing conversation back to some semblance of realistic overview. =)

Garcia or Guerrero

Garcia has a KO of the year candidate in 2 of his fights this year (Marquez will get it though) and he beat the best 140 pounder on paper in Amir Khan

Guerrero jumped up two weight classes and beat a former title holder and a top WW, enough said

I'm always picking with Professor, especially when it comes to Robert Guerrero. Honestly though, Mr. Miyagi (Professor) strategically forced me into giving Bradley against Pacquiao. Hell, he practically made me like Bradley. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

I let him know that this Guerrero transition wont be easy...I dont think I'll ever like Guerrero though. Lol
