Rafael Marquez vs. Israel Vasquez III - postfight
Rafael Marquez vs. Israel Vasquez III
By Randy De La O
Marquez and Vazquez might not get the attention that Manny Pacquiao or Floyd Mayweather Jr get, or any number of elite fighters but to those that know boxing these two are the cream of the crop. No over blown entrances, no bullshit surrounding the fight, no embarrassment to the sport, just pure fighting in the ring. The way it was meant to be.
I was at their last fight. If the fourth fight is half as good as the last three fights it will be twice as good as the crap we have been fed lately. That being said, like the rest of you, I fear for their safety. A fourth fight just can't be good for their health! Speaking of Manny and Floyd, they should, take a look at Rafael and Israel this weekend and take notes. This is what real championship boxing is all about. This is the ultimate in risk taking,. Come to think about it, this is real Ultimate Fighting!
