Rome & New England, we love the guy, no doubt about it. There is only 1 fight that matters for Marquez. A big, young, strong, prime hungry fighter like Lopez is far from that. But these boxing fans need to understand that Marquez in reality should not be fighting over 135.
Face 1sr brawlers down there hurt him. Big 5-10, rangy fighters like Lopez are detrimental. I agree with New England fight a no hoper until arum is fully ready to cash in on the Pacman name. With Marquez it's the polar opposite of say...........a fighter like ginger. Who gets massive props for being protected from jump. While Marquez labored in the shadows of the great Morrales & Barrera before out doing both against Pacman.
Lopez is too much for a 40 year old Marquez & while I don't like to talk bad bout him, it's the damn truth & I won't sugar coat it just because.
