Mayweather fighting Marquez at ANY weight equals a GROSS mismatch, the notion that Marquez competes well at WW beyond Manny Pacquiao is likely fallacious JMM is NOT a true WW and some of the bigger guys who come to the ring weighing 158 would overwhelm and crush him.. There is 00000000000000000000 basis for a rematch after the 12-0 win Mayweather pulled off on the GREAT JMM, he should fight Pacquiao for a BIG payday and depending on results consider the next phase of his life.

everyone in that left a comment is going to watch both the tune up and the rematch of jmm v pac so whats the big fuss who gets paid more like i said JMM apart from being loaded in money already has a promotional company with GBP and a nice ESPN GIG
boxing to him is more about pride than anything else the man looked for greatness and found it to be right up there with the great jCC for those who dont know its (julio cesar chavez) as a mexican ICON, I’ve been watching him fight since the his debut and just want to say there is a reason why fighters did not want to fight the man ealry in his career or if they did they need an homefield edge (AKA) maywaether breaking contract agreement and then saying he beat marquez fairly I would really like him to fight JMM now that he is a full blown welter with his speed up to par. thats the fight I would pay to c.

Marquez will NEVER retire as long as he can command six figure purses. Marquez is a very intelligent guy. He will never get the Pacquiao or Mayweather fees, but six figures is a good payday. Trust me, Marquez will stay as long as the money does.

More ppl will pay to see the 5th than any 0f their other fights simply because we’re boxing fans and we love to see ppl get ktfo cold (pacquiao and williams come to mind, no disrespect to williams). and now that ppl KNOW that “Dinamita” can explode in pacquiaos face n knock him out cold why wouldnt they pay. everyone who missed the 4th fight wont wanna miss the replay.

In Tumbos world if one of his fighters complains of infirmity that is a sufficient reason for him to be given a pass? Seriously it is AWFUL boxing convo to discuss Morales supposed cramps against Raheem.. You make a once GREAT fighter sound like a weeping woman who caved to mental weakness… Truly a shameful depiction of the once Great El Terrible SMH

Who cares about Pac complaining about cramps during a prize fight? Pacquiao has complained of leg cramps on MORE than one occasion in the ring and I did not listen to that as a reason for an underperformance…. Morales complaining post Raheem means what exactly? the only thing he complained about against Pac in that second fight was his broken nose and the beating he was taking… AGAIN you have a BOATLOAD of excuses for your fighters and its pretty pathetic to be honest, I am NOT a fan of them personally… Fact is that the judges simply did NOT see things your way and if they did we have a fight where Pac Man is STILL in a tie you idiot, if you give him round 1, 2 and 9 that means he got 4 points for rd 1 plus 1 for round 2, plus 1 for round 9 which equals a total of 6 points… Of course your scoring is irrelevant because you would blow Marquez in front of a stadium if it bought him a round against Pac Man… Get real

Te Tumbo, Morales defeated Pacquiao AFTER he beat Jesus Chavez so how EXACTLY are you going to sell that silly theory of Morales being a spent force with a 46-1 (post Chavez) Pac Man had ALREADY been stopped twice in his career PRIOR to facing Morales who had NEVER been stopped…. Was Pac flat in those performances?? Reality is that you cannot accept Pacquiao putting his cruel stamp on that trilogy and reducing the Mexican Great to a pitiable figure in the ring who would rather wink at his father and capitulate than spend a single second more in the ring with the tenacious Filipino who destroyed him…As for the scoring of the fight that is AGAIN your viewpoint, I can arbitrarily claim whichever rounds move me but the HARD truth is that the judges saw Marquez in a hole he was NOT going to get out of… You scored a fight for Marquez?? Whats surprising about that but he began down 4 points and could not climp out fully!

Te Tumbo, Pacquiaos path to Greatness went thru 3X Barrera 2x Marquez 4X, Cotto, Oscar, Clottey and the list goes on..If he was such an easy out and fraud then WHY did we have to wait for the 4th Marquez fight to prove it?? Why was this inept (According to you) fighter able to accomplish so much…Morales and Barrera BOTH avoided Marquez meanwhile Pac Man fought him 4 times so lets get honest for a moment, if he comes back and stops JMM you are going to say “Marquez got old” or that even coming off a KO loss Pac timed it perfectly blah,blah,blah… Like I said you have the victory that eluded all your favorites YET you are still sad, bitter and clearly envious of Pacquiaos legendary career and yes he will go down as a legend… Thats a slice of reality for you

Posted January 16, 2013 2:25 pm 


SREDMOND

Te Tumbo, maybe I am missing something but with a 10-6 round Marquez would be down 4 points and only need to technically 3 or 4 more rounds in order to lose the contest… Given the nature of the action and the colossal setback in suffered in round 1 it is NOT hard to see a judge NOT scoring almost EVERY single round for him during the rest of the fight.. He never put Pac Man down or got himself a 10-8 round so coming away with a draw was a pretty solid result given how the bout commenced… But at LEAST you acknowledge the reality of the scoring error which gave JMM that draw…Of course you think that Marquez won EVERY single round he was not knocked down in during all fights, that is WHY you are NOT a judge….. BIAS

How was Morales this horribly faded fighter when he had 2 losses during a GREAT trilogy with a P4P fighter and future HOF entrant? Getting outboxed by Raheem was hardly indicative that Terrible was done as a boxer, you try to downplay his win over Pacquiao YET it proved to be the most accomplished fighter he would EVER beat in his career…We know you wish to paint Morales as a dead man but he was NOT dead till Pacquiao ultimately KILLED him and turned him into a “quitter” he stayed on his seat and was not stopped again till Garcia spun him around as an OLD man… Both Pac and Morales had the SAME number of losses when they fought so stop making excuses for the beatings Pac Man layed on Morales its sad and in defiance of history. As for Marquez TERRIFIC (sarcasm) decision to go book a loss for 30k when he could have fought Pac for 25x that amout the payday and results speak for themselves..

“you omit the FACT that JMM turned down 750k to make 30k and absorb a loss in Indonesia?” the Reigning Champion rejected the CHALLENGER’s(?!?) first and only purse demand. at which point, their facade of a rematch challenge completed, Team Punkuiao* immediately bailed from negotiations to target an already faded Morales whose ONLY great performance at 130lbs was his “W” over Pacquiao*. Btw, the ref also neglected to deduct a point from Pacquiao* for hitting Marquez following the 3rd KD of the Biggest Choke in Boxing History, which Pacquiao* seemed none too eager to redeem. however, even with a 10-6 round, you would have to grant Pacquiao* an additional 4 rounds for the scorecards to add up to a win for Pacquiao*. i absolutely defy you to ID those 5 rounds that you scored for Pacquiao* in their first fight? Face It: Pacquiao’s* path to “greatness” has been carefully choreographed and paved by the clout of Boxing’s most influential promoter desperate to preserve his cash cow. Marquez’s path has been built by personal ambition, dedication, and a ring-warrior’s determination to corner and KTFO of his primary rival. regardless of tilted playing fields and across several weight-classes. Mission Accomplished. the rivalry is OVER. Marquez will ALways be considered Greater.

Marquez vs Pac 5 is NOT going to be a 100 million dollar fight that is simply crazy… The 4th fight did LESS than the 3rd fight FACT… Assuming even a 30% bump you might get to 1.5 mill or so… Mayweather vs Cotto did 1.5 mill which was the SECOND highest PPV number for a non-HW fight (first Mayweather vs ODH)… Marquez and Pac are NOT going to eclipse that, there will be those who as we can see write off Mannys chances or are just fatigued from watching the same 2 guys dance 5 times…It will be a success but not comprable to what Mayweather vs Pacquiao could have been… A historic blunder and at its peak a bout that would have likely eclipsed 3 million buys.

DGS, AGAIN if Marquez is the “draw” then why the hell would he accept a scant fraction fo the purse and when has he EVER headlined a PPV fight???? The crowd in the arena is the province of SMALL minds do you think Mayweather and Pac were the highest paid athletes in sports because of the arena crowd? That money is peanuts and a vocal Mexican contingent does NOT equate to Marquez having anywhere close to Pacquiaos ability to sell fights on HBO or Mayweathers… Like I said you have NEVER seen JMM on PPV against a fighter NOT named Pacquiao or Mayweather, until proven otherwise he is a B side opponent..

doesnt matter with JMM if he fights a tune up not really worried about him losing I actually c him KO sencenchko or vargas those guys arent even clin his league remeber this is JMM the man who dropped and then kTFO manny not an easy feat, well schooled fighter that still has it. and pac even tho he did get KTFO guys not going to lose his punching power or lightning hand speed and just because JMM did it doesnt mean it well happend with another fight. Unless its floyd or canelo doing it but really no other fighter in the division can really emulate what JMM did for now.

your joking on marquez drawing power in vegas last time pac v marquez happen it was a pro marquez crowd and to top it off we well c in the tune up how sold out the stadium is going to be plus all the views he gets in mexico which is 30million+ he always brings a crowd that the only reason why may even faught a lightweight at the time.

Pacquiao Marquez V doesn’t need a tune up fight. A tune up fight will reverse the rematch, any lose here will derail the rematch. This fight can be done for November. Why does Arum want to always compete with DLH against main events. Make your main event unique reserve your own dates, bring your own crowd. November should be the date full rest for the fighters. It will be the last fight for either one. This is the 100 million fight Mayweather threw away.

Te Tumbo, as for “purse demands” Marquez was and is ALWAYS destined to be Mannys lap dog in that regard he simply cannot draw a PPV crowd and thats a FACT… OUTSIDE of Mayweather and Pac please show us JMM’s drawing power on HBO or Showtime? Despite his resounding win he will command LESS cash than Pac in a rematch because when he is not in the ring with a superstar like Pac Man he cannot be sold on PPV… JMM’s hubris cost him 720k when he foolishly opted to face Chris John for 30k as opposed to fighting Pacquiao for OVER 20 times that amount…In the process he lost a suspect decision across the water…Reality is that Canelo and Chavez Jr have shown more drawing power than the GREAT JMM and his only conduit to a TRUE mega-payday is facing Pacquiao.. Absent that its back to the 1.5 million dollar range which is not peanuts but pales in comparison to the 12 mill or more he will earn vs Pacquiao

Posted January 16, 2013 10:37 am 


SREDMOND

Te Tumbo, you inadvertantly give Pacquiao credit because you say paraphrasing “he fought Marquez after fight #3 because many think he lost”…. Hmmmm that is the hallmark of a GREAT fighter or true Warrior Manny wanted a conclusive ending over Marquez and unfortunately for him he proved to be the loser… BUT this is indirect respect you are according him…If he was a “ducker” or wanted to avoid Marquez why would he seek to remedy a controversy in the ring like you said he did??? You discuss Pac Man fighting a “ring worn fighter” well what about Marquez facing that version of Barrera 4 years after Pacquiao had beat him down? Granted he gave JMM a MUCH better fight than many gave him credit for and was robbed of a KD that he should have been awarded?? Pacquiao became more marketable BECAUSE he challenged the scales and made history, in UNDER 2 years he faced Barrera, Marquez and Morales!!!

Posted January 16, 2013 10:29 am 


SREDMOND

Te Tumbo, you seem to have NO interest in the FACT that one of the judges failed to give Pac Man an EARNED 10-6 round in the first fight which would have given him the win? I don’t harp on that FACT much because it did indeed happen…You can pretend that Marquez was the victim of 3 robberies but that is nonsense, the danger in Pac Mans fists GREATLY muted JMM’s offense at put him in position to have to lobby judges to see it his way when he was often not pressing the fight…I liked JMM most be decision in the second fight as opposed to fights 1 and 3 but again I understand the debate hence fight #4 where judges were rendered obsolete… As for Morales, he booked a win over Pac and then Manny commenced to destroy him as an elite fighter… Terrible had NEVER been stopped NOR the then unthinkable (QUIT) by anyone and it did not happen again till a young Garcia spun him around… The domination of your heroes is painful, credit Pac!

Posted January 16, 2013 10:19 am 


SREDMOND

Te Tumbo, the historical significance, relevance and level of competition between Marquez and Pacquiao simply trumps terrific action fights like Corrales/Castillo and Marquez/Vasquez…Due to the ATG quality of both fighters and the mindnumbing inability of either man to get a debate free win during the first 3 contests… Whereas we saw Rafa stop Vasquez (broken nose legit boxing injury due to a punch) and we saw Corrales stop Castillo… As for Rios/Alvarado, they have ONLY fought once and despite the terrific action this was more or less an exercise in machismo and a denunciation of craft and the fine art of defense… You seem VERY miffed by the reality that I can appreciate BOTH Marquez and Pacquiao?? If respecting 2 ATG’s makes me bland in your eyes then so be it… We know that you are wedded to the irrational in regards to Pac, for instance you omit the FACT that JMM turned down 750k to make 30k and absorb a loss in Indonesia??

Posted January 16, 2013 10:13 am

Hecdog, first of all Manny Pacquiao has NEVER I mean NEVER fought a full 154 pound fight FACT, secondly that was for a vacant title FACT, Margarito never did ANYTHING at 154 pounds to be considered Championship material at that weight…. I give Pac full credit for besting Cotto who was a serious Champion and fighter at 147 and the 2 pounds is negligible in my mind, whereas he faced Margo 4 pounds under the limit and never spent another second fighting at that weight…I respect him beating down the bigger fighter but the so called title he got at that weight is afforded VERY little respect by me.. If there was no rivalry then why would Pacquiao who enjoyed the drivers seat fight Marquez 4 times and twice since 2011? Are you saying Manny was cherrypicking Marquez and that JMM was not worthy of the bouts? Seriously you are contradicting yourself..You say Pac lost via “PED punch” can you prove that?? NOPE just more sour grapes sadly

I looked at Lance Armstrong as a model of modern times by admitting he DOPED. Maybe its the right time to admit it now that I also doped during that 4th fight with GREAT PAC because i have no other options to beat this guy…

Good Luck Marquez, you can do it man.

Posted January 16, 2013 4:11 am

Sorry but Manny is only an 8 time titlest, not champion. So make sure you correct yourself on that. And Manny has not made a whole career of fighting and beating the best. If so he would of added some boxers to that list and not brawlers or fighters. Look at the Morales fight, Morales boxed Mannys ears off and only lost when he went toe to toe with Manny. That is why they did not put Manny in with real true Boxers, only fighters and bangers that came forward who also didn’t have great defense. Yes Manny is an ATG fighter that is definitely going to the HOF. But if you are going to say Marquez is on PED then you need to admit to yourself that Manny was on it also. If you can’t do that then you are just a biased fan that can’t look both ways

Virg – Armstrong did not finish a tour de france before he got cancer, then he recovered and then started cheating. He was not riding with cancer. He didn’t start training properly until 11 months after being given the all-clear. Stop fabricating to suit your preferences. Overcoming cancer is enough.

What Marquez needs to do is ask himself – Is this money going to change my lifestyle, or the lifestyles of those close to me, or their future generations? The answer is no. How many sports cars does a man need? … Is it possible to secure the future of others without managing their finances? No.
He’s going to get beat and regret not leaving things at an all-time high.

How do you conclude the delay is 9 years??? The fought fought 4 years apart, then 3 then 1… Did they sign up for a series to be concluded in a certain time frame?? NOPE they just continued to meet periodically and the rivalry continued… The fact it occurred over the course of 8 or 9 years only adds to the uniqueness and drama which are necessary for all epic events in sport…PS I would not become too comfortable with the idea that Pac Man is going to get KOed by Marquez if they fight again… JMM is getting OLD and he was taking some leather in order to get that win….

Who said that Great rivalries have to be completed over the course of a year? Rafa Marquez and Vasquez could not make a decent payday against ANYONE other than eachother and thats why they beat the prime out of eachother in rapid succession… Pac Man’s accomplisments are part of the reason that Marquez deserves such praise, JMM NOW can boast KOing a 7 weight Champ who could NOT be stopped by Cotto, Diaz, Margo, ODH, Clottey, Barrera and Morales who paid dearly for his UD points win over Pac Man back in the day….Thru the years JMM got 4 shots for a win which is unprecendented especially given the known risk Manny took on fighting such a skilled technician who had his number…

Posted January 15, 2013 5:37 pm

Te Tumbo, your nonsense is LEGENDARY Pacquiao fought Marquez at every weight imaginable and the quality and stature of the two fighters is what makes this special… Vazquez and Rafael Marquez do NOT hold a candle to Pacquiao (Fighter of the Decade, 4 time lineal and solid 7 weight Champion) NOR 3 division future HOFer and 3 division Champion Juan Manuel Marquez… These men have a UNIQUE history due to the fact that their first 3 fights were all separated by a scant few points open to debate.. The last bout epic in its shock value and conclusiveness.. NOW we have a 5th bout seemingly slated to occur…We all KNOW you are a joke trying to sell Pac Man as running from a MORE than game JMM over the years… He fought the man in 2011 and 2012 when AFTER his biggest year financially in boxing….

Its beyond me how you can hate on either guy they are entertaining the hell out of us at GREAT personal cost physically…How many guys would have given that interview like Pac did postfight? How many guys would be willing to go a 5th time at age 40 like Marquez is?? A couple of truly GREAT fighters…

You keep harping on Jesus, the Bible and these matters peripheral to boxing so in essence you are TOTALLY emotionally based in your thinking and thus not really too credible… I know you are immune to the results of those tests and you operate with some VERY visible double standards, Marquez does not have 1/3 of Pacs money YET you say “we see what Marquez is all about” because he wants to cash in on 20 years of hardwork with a well earned massive payday? Meanwhile Pac Man will still likely make MORE $$$$$ Than Manny… The Heredia angle is weak and played out that loss is going to be on Pacs record and that videotape of his face slamming the floor will be watched in 2075 live with it….

Manny is NOT the GREATEST fighter ever he is indeed an ATG, secondly Manny is the ONLY one to get knocked out in the 42 rounds he danced with Marquez.. I give Pacquiao go damn good chance of prevaling in the next bout Marquez is getting older and his performance last fight cannot really be improved upon unless he knocks out Pacquaio in the first round… These guys have fought 4 times which is close to unheard of in the modern era of boxing, a 5th bout is outta this world…It is LAUGHABLE to suggest that Marquez fears or is intimidated by Pacquiao at 39 he showed he is beyond TOUGH, SKILLED and MOTIVATED… Pac Man is a wonderful fighter but his KO of Hatton pales in comparison to the sight of him falling on his face, being rolled over and given smelling salts..He would have to crush Marquez to erase that memory

Understand that no matter WHAT happens, Pac Man is NEVER going to erase the reality of that KO loss, it was especially brutal and memorable… Getting a dominant points win or even a TKO over Marquez will not accomplish that goal… It will get him back in the convo as a Top 5 P4P fighter but that piece of history is booked and recorded… You seem like you are ONLY happy if Marquez is the loser and if he is making NO $$$$$… Your bias is a blight on this board….

Anyone surprised that Marquez is going to continue fighting needs to crawl from underneath the rock and get real… This will be the FIRST 12 million plus payday of his career and its simply too much money to pass up…Assuming he does not get stopped by Pac its a very solid business decision… Should he win, the glory will be manifold and if he is smart he should seek to fight Manny sooner than later since he is pushing 40 and the closer that Pac is to that KO the better for JMM…

I love how everyone is jumping on the Lance Armstrong bandwagon! Lance had not only testicular cancer, but also abdomen, lung and brain cancer when he was winning titles in cycling! For all I care, if you are that riddled with cancer, you can dope as much as you like. Most definitely if your undergoing aggressive treatment, such as Lance was. Plus the charity work he has conducted is incredible, which is sadly overlooked by most of the fools who judge him.

Also, on both Pacman and JMM, if they have been steroid abusing (no evidence as yet proving they have), they would of had to do it in such high quantites to get the so called “PED wins” that they would of most certainly failed the already stringent tests top fighters have to undergo.

There is so much nonsense written by so called boxing fans on this and other similar sites it makes me cringe. Almost nobody has a clue what they are talking about and 99% certainly don’t even know the basic science of steroid use. It’s fans like the majority of yourselves that are killing the sport of boxing, not the fighters.

On his last three meetings with Manny, he has not shown a strength like he has demonstrated the 4th fight and the fact he is getting older now and that he has acquired this Angel guy who has been involved in giving undetected PEDS. Now that Armstrong has admitted as well this goes to show there’s is something to be done… I’m just saying a facts here!
