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

i can't imagine a scenario where rios, alvarado or pac come out on top. prodnikov takes a lot of shots...but he seems to be less shop worn. the winner of bradley/marquez is the best of them all.

I agree, JMM and Bradley beat the rest.

Sorry, but I dont see JMM beating most of these guys. I can see him possibly edging Bradley, but I dont think he can stick with Rios, Provodnikov, or Alvarado at this stage...these are BIG 140 fighters. Any and everybody that Marquez has fought (post 135), was pretty much tailor made for him (Pac, Fedchenko, that diver Ramos, and now Bradley (somewhat)).

I'm not saying that Bradley will look terrible against JMM, but he has a style and juuuuust enough punching power to make it a war and have JMM looking good in certain parts of the fight. At this age, JMM needs those types of fights, not the Rios, Alvarado, or Provodnikov-type fighters of the world.

Why would Provo even be in the tournament? 3 fights at 140 would ruin his career. I don't see him being anything other than target practice for everybody else in the tournament. Now if you make it 147 Bradley probably beats everyone on that list.

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

Alvarado vs Provo is going to be at 140. And in Denver of all places.

I agree, them vs TB at welter would be very beneficial for him.
