do you guys understand how much he risks fighting lopez?

"the best should fight the best, bla bla bla, i dont get it."

this is a fight that looks good if you're a fan.. that's why the fans pay money to watch these guys and the promotors get paid to watch them.

fighting lopez right now would be a bad move for marquez and his people. your fights are a finite quantity when you're a 38 year old lightweight. they harder they are, the fewer you can have. you're in this game to make money if you're a promotor OR a fighter.

if you arent fighting a top flight guy for serious money you should be fighting a no hoper

you arent going to make much more money fighting lopez than you are fighting these cabbies. you're risking your multi million dollar payday.
it's a no brainer. take a tune up.


fighters have always taken tune ups.
Great post!

The fight I wanna' see Lopez in is against Rios. That fight would be a potential
Ward/Gatti, Castillo/Corrales, Barrera/Morales type knock-down drag out that would likely elevate both fighters, imo.

As for JMM: Fvck the Pacquiao fight. Juan is never gonna' get a fair shake outta' that snake pit. Besides that, in a lot of folks minds (mine included) JMM is up 2 of 3 in the series.

Not really sure who I want to see JMM fight, except to say that if he wants to keep fighting, he should probably go back to 135, clean house and then maybe hang em' up?

For that matter, he could hang em' up right now and I'd be fine w/that too.

Marquez has been in alot of wars now and time is gonna' catch up w/him at some point. I don't wanna' see him go out like RJJ.
