Pacquiao vs Marquez Was Biggest Robbery Ever According to Nacho Beristain

Well, alright -- now we're here. After three days of mostly healthy debate and many feeling that Juan Manuel Marquez deserved the win on Saturday night, his trainer Nacho Beristain has gone ahead and made a ridiculous enough statement that their side is coming off whiny now. From Notifight.com, via BoxingScene.com:

"In the 52 years that I've been in boxing, I've never seen a robbery like this. The three judges who issued the results are unworthy of being in this sport. We are studying the possibility that through our lawyers we are going to file a complaint with the court against the three judges, with the intention that they be separated from boxing for life. And also to explore the possibility that the same court could overturn the result. I think there is enough evidence to win the case."

This is absurd. It's not even the worst robbery in the last five months, let alone 52 years. This sort of dramatic, easily dismissed statement is the kind of thing that has gotten Marquez and Beristain a bad rap in the past among some who may admire Marquez's ability, skill, and toughness, and Beristain's knowledge, but hear them go on about these things and lose some respect along the way.

Has Nacho hit that level again for you? Does this statement make you lose a little sympathy for Team Marquez?
