Well 99% of the boxing world knows that pacquiao really won that fight. So just because that 1% thinks he lost means he should do a rematch ASAP? I know that all losses should be avenged and i know they will fight eventually but right now pacquiao vs Marquez is a better fight ands needs more closure.
Anyways all i was originally saying is that people will criticize pacquiao for doing or saying something but give others passes for that same stuff.
if by the 1% u mean the judges and the ppl that were actually watching the fight...and not just pacquiao...i agree.
thing is...i don't think the numbers are going to be that much different than they were for bradley. pac lost that fight against marquez...and that's why his numbers declined. they are going to continue to decline once he loses this fight legitimately. his days are numbered and his highest paydays are behind him. i don't believe arum ever had the intent of letting pac fight floyd....at this point arum is trying to wring what's left of pac dry. the only criticism i have of pac is that he should have been a lot more vocal about making certain fights. as for his financial situation...he has no one to blame but himself when it's all said and done. he's a good guy at the core and he's given so much to boxing...it's a shame he's dealing with a blood sucker like arum who is going to suck him dry.
the money cannot last when pac has....
2 promoters... top rank and golden boy...
2 trainers....freddie roach and buboy
2 conditioning coaches....alex ariza and the filipino dude...
multiple advisors....gacal, koncz..etc..
ppl talk about his legal dealings with floyd...but lets not forget the accounting firm he hired (and bob fired) to help him who are now suing him.
his entourage....does he really need all those ppl to do road work?
