The Big Bopper? --Ric 18:21, 8 June 2007 (CDT)
Are you trying to push a point of view against Manny Pacquiao, as it appears that is your intent by the look of your edits.--Matt Tegen 12:11, 8 November 2007 (CST)
I just simply can't agree with your point of view on the fight. Your comments try to make it look like Pacquiao actually whooped Barrera's ass, and, I am sorry, but I was there and it was not the case. My perception is that the fight was much more close than what the scorecards might lead you to believe, and that it is simply fair to say Barrera made a nice performance while Pacquiao was awarded a decision on the base of the "busiest fighter" (which as far as I know is not a criteria for boxing judgement), and the "most marketable" one.
I had in my personal cards at least 8 rounds that could have gone either way, which makes it a very close fight in my eyes. I think Barrera set the pace of the fight and was very successful defensive wise, while he was also the man that landed the hardest punches.
Saying that Pacquiao "easily outworked Barrera" is blatantly stupid. Pacquiao was visibly hurt during the fight (while Barrera was not)and I believe Pacquiao did not look as his former self.
Sorry but I will keep correcting your biased posts until I feel they are fair.
When editing pages, you should really refrain from deleting text that is already there. Just now you edited the Julio Cesar Chavez Jr vs. Ray Sanchez page, and in the process intentionally deleted both the CompuBox stats and the category. Why? --Ric 12:01, 11 January 2008 (CST)
JP, my comment to you was concerning the deletion of material that was already in the fight page before you edited it, and then deleted the old material--which included the "2007 Bouts" category and the Compubox stats. Whether the Compubox stats are accurate or worthwhile is another issue. (Those stats are in many fight pages, so obviously some folks find them of interest, for what they are worth.) I am just saying that it is considered poor Editor etiquette to delete material already in the page unless there is some clear and valid reason for doing so. Otherwise, I enjoy your contributions and am glad you are contributing. --Ric 19:34, 11 January 2008 (CST)
Your spelling is extremely sloppy, such as in the Manny Pacquiao vs. Marco Antonio Barrera (2nd meeting) page. Don't you double-check your work before saving it? --Ric 04:09, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
Are you kidding me? When you need to correct and correct and correct again and again a post from the modifications made by a nonsensical, traumatized, hysterical person, spelling mistakes may occur.
