    So Dana its not about the fight? its about choosing who will most likely win before the fight?

    Right, Dana. You're one to talk. Dana's complaining here makes me think of "Hitler reacts" videos.

    He has a point but Marquez deserved the rematch especially after the decision in their last fight..

    It's the truth, that fight just killed boxing. Noone wants to see Marq vs Mayweather...or Bradly after he got a bad decision. If Paq retires it's all over. Mayweather ends up in jail within 5 years. Boxing is a greedy sport. Dana might piss people off but he is smart.

    i kind of agree with him, its hard to fight anyone 4 times and not come out with a lose. especially with all the fights being so close. that is probably why dana said it was dumb for pacquiao and why he bet on Marquez.

    I think many should take note of this....It's very revealing coming from White.

    Just the same as Pac deserves to avenge that bullshit decision in the Bradley fight as well. Either way, this is what can happen when you wait and wait to set up a "superfight", someone will lose and then there's no point (memo to White, this might happen with GSP v Silva so if you're going to do it, do it now).

    Yet, what better way to prove just how great a fighter you are by beating the guy that matches up the best with you...

    If he would have won? Everyone would be talking about just how incredible Manny is, and how he was able to overcome such a difficult match up.

    But he lost....

    Doesn't Pacquiao pick his own fights anyway?

    Thats not what he said. He said having Pacman rematch a guy he has beaten twice before and fought to a draw with is dumb because its lose lose. Pacman wins and its "so what, he already beat the guy 2 times" and if he loses then a huge PPV star loses a big chunk of his draw due to the loses.

    Bradley made wayyyyy more sense. Why not Manny get back a bs loss and rack up a win? Business wise it was insanely dumb.
