Smaller man or Bigger man?

Let's clear up this bs...
Obviously in boxing or any physical combat, imposing a bigger physique means a lot.. so it's only logical middle ground that facilitates match ups between fighters from different weight classes that evens the playing field.
There goes, "A good big man will always beat an equally good small man", how this epic sayin doesn't work in Pac case?
But how about Mayweather-Marquez fight? that was a real catch-weight event, and Marquez failed so badly.

I'm glad between two solid world class fighters are able and getting in the ring with each other...
Quality fighters with a lot of talent fighting each other? How NOVEL man.
If some fighter is so successful with it, some id!ot/s wants to crucify that fortunate fighter.. Fair?

Let's just put it this way : " It's not the SIZE OF THE DOG in the fight but the SIZE OF THE FIGHT in the dog that counts. "

Why do some boxing fans enjoy sh!tting on fighter/s for having this catchweight?
I'll never understand it. For returning the favor, I can be guilty.. but that should be it.

For bigger prize and challenge of course.
Back to the decades, when a catchweight meant cutting a little bit more weight for someone who didn't cut a lot wasn't a big deal.
How's this? If you can make the weight, you can make the fVckin fight!

kidding aside, less little men take the risk to fight big men less often.. Pac is different and successful, yet so many wants to abate its splendor.

But if both party will agree then catchweight should not be an issue, in the first place why would they agree if they think they cant make the weight?, kaya nga may negotiations yung tipong the ebat that they can meet halfway...isa pa Maraming months given naman prior sa laban. Naalala ko lalo na si cotto, all the time sa 24/7 at sa mga discussions they keep on bragging na wala sila issue sa weight and di nagstriggle si cotto, nung natalo si cotto panay yun excuse nya.
