You're saying it's only fine for a fighter to compromise something against an older guy but not against a younger guy? That must be why Floyd is willing to fight Sergio at 150.



Bonus: When Oscar challenged Pacquiao he was still the biggest superstar in boxing. The money maker. Pacquiao was at 140 at that time and younger, Oscar was at 154 and older but the met halfway.

The Good: A compromise was reached regardless of age and star status of the fighters.
The Good: The fight was made. The boxing fans were happy.
But Oscar challenged Manny right? Canelo has been the one calling out Floyd, not the other way around.

Can't wait. Whoever wins is the best at 140.

Exactly.

The ATG, money maker superstar Oscar, challenged the other superstar, Pac.

Pac didn't made Oscar move down to 140, Oscar didn't made Pac to move up to 150-154. Regardless of who challenged who and who's bigger star than who, two guys that really wanted the fight met halfway.

What's "The Bad" thing about making a reachable and realistic compromise?

Still missing "The Point" and "The Good"? It's right there.

His 2 losses are against the only notable names he's faced, Judah and Alexander. This isn't Mike Dallas lol. Lamont's only marks on his record are a loss vs. Tim Bradley and a draw vs. Ortiz.

This is goin the whole 12. If there is a knockout, it will be late not in 5.

Did you watch both fights? The Judah fight was very close (many people thought he beat Judah) and he got completely robbed against Alexander in Devon's hometown.

I thought Lamont lost to Khan also with the BS points taken from Khan in Peterson's backyard.

This is not going the distance.

I'm not sure how you call a split decision a robbery. It was a one point win for Devon.

A robbery was Paul Williams beating Lara a few years back.

It should have never come down to a SD.

I don't think a catch weight is a realistic compromise for Canelo because I don't think he can get much lighter without it hurting him.

And there is no reason for there to ever be a fight night weight rule.

who do you got? I think Mattyesse should win just cause he hits harder and Peterson likes to come at you and brawl which isn't good vs Mattyesee.

I will be cheering for Peterson tho
