Ok, I've been scanning this situation with Money vs Canelo over and over in my brain and I realized that now it seems Floyd will be staying at 147 since they stripped him of his belt at 154 and everyone seems to want him to go back up and face a bigger Alvarez (who walks around at 170/re-hydrates to the same weight on fight night) and there are those (Haters, mostly) who expects him to make the move back up and not do it at a CW but then those same (Haters, mostly) gave Manny Pac a pass when he took on an Old/way past it/Over-the-hill Oscar at 147 (a weight he hadn't been at in 9 years) for Manny's CW fight with him at WW.

So the questions are: Is there a Double Standard here?? And, if so, why does it exist for Floyd and not for Manny Pacquiao??

Wasn't it ODLH who asked for the fight to be at that weight class?

Cmon now. We all know Manny Pacquiao can do no wrong...especially if you're watching HBO.

He fought Mosley, De La Hoya and Hatton after Floyd....they were past their prime, old and overrated respectively when Floyd beat them. They all of a sudden became great again when Manny beat them.

Manny can fight weight drained fighter and nobody cares

Manny can fight without any increased drug testing involved even though everyone seems to be going along with the stricter testing movement.

Manny and Roach can say Marquez might be on steroids and nobody even notices.

Manny gets gift decisions and nobody is enraged.

Manny loses a controversial decision and the boxing world weeps tears of butthurt sorrow.
