I never said it would happen. All i said was that they planted the seed. Whether or not they read these forums idk but i highly doubt it. Im not complaining. Im not nor will i be complaining. As i said i know its too much. But that matchup just intrigues me. Because a specific matchup intrigues me im a johnny-come-lately.. whatever that means.. K. If you dont want to see it ok. I respect that. If that matchup doesnt intrigue you i respect that. I dont have to be on any side. Im just curious aboout how that matchup would turn out at 160. Thats all. You make it impossible for anyone else to have an opinion.
Round of applause for you he started his career at 130. You were right, i was wrong. Oh you hit me with the facts! lol I'm not running with anything. All i said is that they planted the seed.
...you know what lol im not going to go back and forth. Lmao idek know you. You got it cshel. You got it man lol
There's nothing wrong with you having an opinion, my man. As for shutting people down to the point that they dont wanna share their opinion, that's not my stance. If you're gonna have an opinion, at least stand behind it, that's all.
As soon as I challenge someone's opinion around here, guys go nuts like I'm breaking the law. Hell, I could care less if a guy challenges what I post around, it's not like it's the gospel just because I post it. Somethings are better left as they are, in the boxing world, but again, forums, "journalists", etc., push for these things to happen, whether they're good for boxing or not.
Don't be surprised if we see a Chavez/Martinez rematch, since people thought it was necessary because of the 12th round drama. I wont lie, I was in favor of a rematch, because the guy that wanted to win (Chavez) almost won, especially when nobody gave him a legit chance to. With that in mind, I (along with other media outlets and so on) are giving that fight fuel, whether others want it or not.
Let' see how many people will cry for a Garcia/Matthysse rematch, just because their guy (Matthysse) didn't win. Had Lucas starched Danny, they themselves, wouldn't have wanted a rematch at all, because THEY wanna see how far their guys can go. It's just a selfish, fickle, mentality that most boxing fans have, sadly, the less intelligent ones (read: casual fans) usually get the last say-so in situations like that, since they're the primary consumers.
You're right though, a seed was planted. In most cases, that's all that's needed. For instance, Canelo and his team planted a seed back in 2011, saying that they would fight Floyd at 150 lbs. It just so happens that, that seed got them the fight, but not on their terms (weight wise).
All Im saying is, we cant get mad at the media for pushing otherworldly demands on Floyd, when we ourselves, feed into it by saying, "Hey, well Sergio came in a 167 against Chavez, and Canelo came in at 165 against Floyd, so it could happen". Then, if Floyd moves up to MW and gets starched, those same Floyd fans will be butthurt if there are millions of memes across the net, with Floyd kissing the canvas.
