Marquez, Montiel, Arce Back Chavez To Beat Canelo
By Jhonny Gonzalez
There is a growing debate in the Mexican press and a number Mexican boxers were polled by Sal Rodriguez. They were asked one question, on which young Mexican boxer is better - Saul "Canelo" Alvarez or Julio Cesar Chavez. Many of the established veterans were on the side of Chavez.
Juan Manuel Marquez - I think it's a tough fight for both, but I'm with Chavez because of his boxing, height, distance, he throw more combinations, and throws more punches to the body.
Rafael Marquez - Julio Cesar Chavez would win, 100%. Julio has faced a little higher level of opponents. He throws better combinations, works well and he should win without trouble.
Fernando Montiel - Julio Cesar Chavez should win. He has more experience. He's had wars in the ring, and maybe they were not with wars with big names, but he showed a bit more than Canelo.
Carlos Zarate - I think Chavez should win. He has more experience, but it would be a tough fight for both.
Jorge Arce - Junior has more talent. He's the bigger of the two and I think the advantages go to Chavez.
Daniel Zaragoza - I like the way Chavez boxes. With all due respect, Canelo leaves the impressions that he still has more learning to do.

I'm with Zaragoza on this one... He's right, Canelo does show a lot of promise, but he does seem to leave an impression of immutarity in the ring... I don't see how these opinions can be constituted as jelousyComment by ELPERRO on 03-11-2011
Well....Marquez is jealous Because Canelo is becoming #1 in popularity in Mexico, leaving him @ #2... R.Marquez is his brother so he backs him up on his opinion along with Zaragosa which is Rafael's trainer. Both Arce and Montiel are…Post a Comment/View More User Comments (27)
