Rafael Marquez Destroys Israel Vazquez in Three Rounds
By Mark Vester
At the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, Rafael Marquez destroyed Israel Vazquez in three rounds of a scheduled twelve round featherweight contest. After three wars, they continued the battle in the fourth round of fights. In the first, Marquez came out very fast and was battering Vazquez with punches to open up small cuts above both eyes that eventually got much worse. The better punching was still coming from Marquez in the second round of a war.
In the third round, there was a minor clash of heads that turned one of the cuts on Vazquez into a massive cut. A combination by Marquez sent Vazquez down to his knees for a knockdown. Vazquez beat the count but he was getting punished and that forced the referee to jump in to stop the fight.
The two Mexican warriors are tied up with two wins a piece in their four fight series.
Just let it be. It's tied, these two will never be mentioned without the other being brought up, they have each proven each other, and Vazquez is plain finished. Marquez still has quite a bit in him, let him move…Comment by JOM'S on 05-24-2010
