    No my point is this. Smaller weight classes have a smaller talent pool. Chocolatito is the size of a Jockey. How many people do you personally know that are small enough to become a Jockey? Maybe one? Ok now out of those how many are world class boxers? Usually people that small come from Asia or malnourished 3 world Latin American country. They either didn't grow properly because of some birth defect or por nutrition. If there's no money in lower weight classes then there's less talent. That's why Chocolatito had so much success but as he moved up and the level of competition got better he got exposed. Easy to be 40 and 0 when you're fighting impoverished midgets suffering from malnutrition.

    how were chavez, who started at 126, and finito fighting for the #1 lb 4 lb spot when they were in their primes if ricardo lopez only weighed 105?

    why are Mexicans known as the "mejores pesos gallos del mundo"?

    do some research and check out what weight class peso gallo is since you can't speak Spanish all that well, pocho.

    as far as talent pools....there really isn't all that much talent out there anymore. if you're talking lightweights, jr. welters, and welters, most are from mexico and the u.s.

    where's the worldy talent pool?

    Well P4P is all subjective. It's all for shits and giggles since we'll never see lomachenko fight GGG. But for me it's three things.

    the quality of opposition
    Popularity
    How exciting a fighter is to watch

    I also said quality of opposition. I guess In your haste to make a "cute comment" you conveniently left that out.

    you also said exciting.....in your haste you forgot that butterbean was pretty damn exciting. so he fits the bill in 2 out of 3. pretty close to p4p in your eyes.



    andre ward is famous but he isn't very popular. how is he #1 p4p?

    neither do I...I wanted to see his criteria.

    now I know his opinion of p4p is shit.

    no wonder he didn't consider choco as a possible p4per

    Choco was overrated by you the rest of us didn't know he existed. Now that he lost back to back I doubt hes a p4p anything. Wait maybe the p4p human punching bag.

    lost to a guy 4 times his weight class.

    who gives a damn if you know him or not? the hell are you anyway?


    no way in hell he's not p4p....he's not popular enough.

    sigh

    I'm probably the closest thing you'll come to knowing a real hardcore boxingfan/trained in boxing/MMA. Let's just say I know a thing or two about fighting.

    Stick to posting about making Sunday brunches cup cake that's your forte. Leave the boxing to the men in the forum theon.

    Boxing is popular in central/south america, Mexico and Asia. The smaller athletes begin boxing at a young age in these places.

    Very few kids who are elite athletes here are going into boxing. The talent pool is actually smaller in the higher weights.
