Leading upto the fight I really felt Rafa had a good chance of beating Juanma but many felt the wars had caught up with Rafa..rightfully so. To Marquez credit of being such a great fighter he is was able to wobble Juanma inside the ring during the fight.
After the fight had ended and had time to think about it, I realized that the win was not as good as I originally thought it was going to be due to how Marquez looked inside the ring that night. I understand there was many who already knew this or was expecting it (like myself) but I didn't expect Rafa to look that small and old inside the ring as he did that night.
Now I read they may be having a rematch this year? Sure the fight was entertaining and Marquez had his moments but it wasn't enough for the the younger, bigger Lopez. I think this was Juanma's biggest step up in his career and was a very solid win, but should continue moving forward. I don't think this fight is really relevant for Lopez.
