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.

[QUOTE=Ido]Mad respect to Vazquez. But this was not a good fight, Vazquez seriously needs to hang up those gloves.[/QUOTE] I enjoyed the hell out of it. I knew Marquez would come out blazing like that and not leave anything to the judges. Cuts or no cuts, Marquez is and always has been the ...

Mad respect to Vazquez. But this was not a good fight, Vazquez seriously needs to hang up those gloves.
