At Plaza de Toros in Cancun, Mexico, WBA/WBO lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez (53-5-1, 39 KOs) knocked out Likar Ramos (24-4, 18 KOs) in the first round of a junior welterweight bout. One solid right hand ended Ramos and put him away. The fight was a tune-up to see how Marquez reacts to a higher weight for his November 12 trilogy fight with Manny Pacquiao, which takes place at a catch-weight of 144-pounds.

In the co-feature, former two division champion Rafael Marquez (40-6, 36 KOs) broke down Eduardo Becerril (12-8-2, 4 KOs) in five rounds, as he was unable to come out for round six. Marquez is now in line to fight WBC super bantamweight champion Toshiaki Nishioka in a tentative October battle in Las Vegas.

[QUOTE=BoxingGenius27]Does James "Buster" Douglas ring a bell? Or how about Rahman vs Lewis I, Ali vs Spinks I, Klitscho vs Sanders, Jones vs Tarver II..... I think you get the point. Crazier things have happen in the history of boxing where the favorite was suppose to win but things didn't wo...

[QUOTE=Nodogoshi]If you want to talk about fixed fights, talk about the way matchmakers make fights in which they know 100% who the winner will be. This was one of those fights. Dive? Sorry, no. Unless you consider a guy quitting a dive. No let me rephrase that. A guy who was in a fight merely fo...

[QUOTE=Brouillard]:lol1: 1 round, what a useless tuneup it turned out to be[/QUOTE] yes, i think so, too... the tune up would have been more useful to jmm if he had somehow been put to the test more.... the ko might only give jmm a false sense of confidence....

[QUOTE=KTFO]Whine? Coming from the guy thats been crying conspiracy theories about fights that have happened in the past? We are on a thread about Marquez and all you can talk about is Pacman? Guess the sarcasm of my stories went over you're head. I'll indulge your little conspiracy theories and ...
