Marcel would be higher if it wasn't for a poor ending to the fight. It could have went on and t was fairly close so its a shame really.
Why do you have Ernesto Marcel so low? He's a monster ATG who beat Caraballo prior to their fight.
Its cause of the inconclusive ending, the fight was cut short and it was very close. I just thought it was a really poor stoppage and took away it being a great victory. If the stoppage had been legit or it had continued and he'd won on points as I expected he would have it would have been better imo.
That was out of Duran`s hands though, he still did his thing in the actual fight. A poor decision by a ref shouldn't take away/add to the performance of the fighter whatsoever.
I think it does tbh, sure its not fair on the fighter but its also not fair on the fighter who lost either. i still ranked it rather high but I felt his other victories were more dominant and that put them ahead whereas in this one Marcel still could have won but the bout was cut short. if he had been dominating like the way I had him a long way ahead against Buchanan it may not have been an issue but I only had this fight but a round (i think).
