OK. so we have Bradley vs Marquez, Pacquiao vs Rios, and Provodnikov vs Alvarado. Depending on how these 3 fights go, we are left with quite a bit of mix and macthing that can be done, Lets here some of your guys fantasy outcomes and what we would like to see happen in any circumstance.

I would love to see this happen,

Pacquiao > Rios
Bradley > Marquez
Alvarado > Provodnikov


So then,

Pacquiao > Bradley
Marquez > Alvarado
Provodnikov > Rios(i could see this being the next ward/gatti)

So then

Pacquiao vs Marquez 5
Bradley vs Provodnikov 2
Rios vs Alvarado 2

Anyway, they make some sick ass match ups, and a posibilty for a shitload of double and triple headers

rios, alvarado and provodnikov are tailor made for jmm.

I wish I could agree, but there are weight classes for a reason. Again, JMM has fought guys his size, since moving up from 135 (with the exception of Floyd). He is a small guy, and I believe that Rios, Alvarado, and Provodnikov are too big for him. I know that size doesn't matter in most cases in boxing, but it will be a stretch for JMM to truly compete with these dudes at this advanced age.

Rios-- JMM turns him and counters him 'til YOU get tired of watching it. JMM all day in that one.

Provodnikov-- I like JMM in this one. Provodnikov, like Rios, refuses to avoid punches. Counter, counter, counter.

Alvarado-- w/ the exception for banging, JMM does everything better than Alvarado.

IMO, Provodnikov is the biggest "wild card", but not as "wild" as he was w/ The World Headbutting Champion

Are we talking about these fights happening at 140 or 147? At 140, maybe, but none of these at 147. Can you see him banging against these guys, or are we talking strictly counterpunching?

marquez is still fast...still capable of placing well timed shots....rios and alvarado have beat the shit out of each other twice. alvarado seems to get hurt very easily these days. didn't rios hurt him with a jab? marquez ktfo's him easily. he's too flawed and easy to hit. that spells disaster. same can be said for rios. his punches are predictable than a muhfucka and i can see jmm chaining together a very nice combo to put him to sleep as well. provodnikov would probably be a little more difficult, but we can't forget...jmm can box and if you recall...timmeh was having a very easy time with him when he boxed. he didn't look bigger than timmeh to me. i stand by my original statement...also jmm has grown into the weight nicely.
