Rafael Marquez v. Juan Manuel Marquez: Battle of the Trilogies
So I've been wondering, since Marquez completed his masterful trilogy, and his brother having his own ATG trilogy (for purposes of a fair comparison, we'll forget that awful fourth fight) in the bag, who's trilogy do you rate higher?
The Marquez/Vazquez fight were known for their savagery, brutality and unending violence. Marquez is 1-2 in this classic. You can argue that he's 2-1 in this classic.These fights featured knockouts to cap off the marvelous fights. Drama in these fights, fighters being washed up, coming off the deck, knockouts, close decisions and more.
The Marquez/Pacquaio fight were also known for their brutality, with much finesse thrown in from JMM's side. High drama oozes throughout the trilogy. JMM hits the deck and roars back. Underrated and thought to finally be outgunned in a weight class that previously, he looked like a walking twinkie in, to arguably win in convincing fashion. Officially, Marquez is 0-2-1. Arguably you can argue that he's either 3-0, 2-1, 1-1-1, 1-2 or even 0-3
In your opinion, whose trilogy will you be more fond of as the years go by? Marquez/Pacquaio or Marquez/Vasquez?
**Note, this question will be reevaluated if/when Marquez/Pacquaio IV pops off**
