They ripped each other apart for six and half rounds, in a fight compared to many of boxing's classic brawls! Will anything be different this time? Can Alverado win? If Alverado wins, do you think they might have a trilogy in the style of Gatti-Ward?

Predict and comment!

What I don't get,

I understand that critics of this rematch would like to see these guys move up in there careers. I can understand that I guess. But why was it OK for Gatti and Ward to fight each other three times, but for some its not OK for Rios and Alverado to fight twice? I think that the second Ward and Gatti fights are over-ratede by the media, but we are still getting two guys who want to give the fans another great show, are ready to go to war and thrill the fans again! Jake Lamotta and Sugar Ray Robinson fought six brutal fights in a relatively short time frame and no one talked about them fighting too much.

At the same time, boxing is much more safety conscious today than when Robinson and Lamotta fought. But the Ward-Gatti trilogy was not that long ago. It's hard to draw that comparison, fans loving the brawls of the past, wishing for more today, but there is the health concerns that people have today where brawls with tough, but B-grade level fighters lead to shorter careers.

Sometimes I think there is too much caution today, and I would like to go back in time to the classic boxing of the 40's-70's. However, back than, we didn't have all the medical evidence that is now available.

The thing with Rios and Alverado is that, I think they are made for each other to produce wars, BUT neither can box well, so if either of these guys move up to fight someone who can box and box well, they are likely to lose. The public today has a short memory, and when they lose to a boxer, Rios-Alverado I will gradually fade. Doing this rematch, gets boxers who are evenly matched, fighting each other, away from the politics and bullshit with too many bigger guys who don't fight each other. Too many fighters today don't fight in the championship unification matches, and don't fight often enough.

Let's just hope for another great fight, and at the same time, the proper rest and health consideration if either or both take too many shots.

honestly, i'm not a fan of the gatti/ward trilogy. the first fight was enough for me. i didn't need the next two. also...same can be said for the vasquez/marquez 2,3,4.

i am a fan of the morales/barerra trilogy, pac/morales trilogy and marquez/pac 1-4. those guys did not lack in skill and they didn't beat each other senseless for the most part.
