Rigo vazquez jr instead of marroquin. Better fight for rigo and he will demonstrate he is better than donaire. Rigo tkos vazquez. For sure.

Marquez was injured before the Lopez fight, after the Lopez fight and now before this Vasquez fight. Can't help but think age is catching up to him and he's breaking down. Too many wars for this man, it might be time to just hang'm up.

With our luck recently guys/gals, that shot the doctor gave Marquez in the knuckle is loaded with banned substances and he'll end up testing positive and the entire event will get cancelled!! Let's hope that's not the case, lol. I'm expecting this fight to be badass!!
