Badd azz fight card this weekend on Fox Sports..
I dont see many people giving Rafael a chance but I can see him beating Nishioka.. Rafael is not " shot " like some people make him out to be... hell naw..
Nishioka is fast but speed can be neutralized by timing and Rafael still has that.. Superb timing, skills, and punching power is something that Rafael still has but
he's prone to injuries at this stage of his career which is the only thing that bothers me..
Nishioka may be riding high but trust me, marquez has the style to scare the shit outa him... Many times ive seen him struggle and abandoning his game plan when shit gets rough...
Yep, def a good and excellent fight card. I will be on hand to watch it.
I see Rafa edging this in a hard fought in and out war. Nishioka is very fast and his speed is his power. That's how he won most of defence title fights. He overwhelms his opponents with blistering straight lefts and right hook combos. But Marquez is a veteran and his timing is still in tact. His speed may have decreased but his power is still there, I think he will time Nishioka's style of coming in and out by the 5 or 6th round and take a good back and forth battle before taking the Tokyo fighter in deep waters in the later rounds. I see Rafa stopping him in the 9th or 10th by TKO. This will be competitive but Rafa will be too much even if they say he's "passed it".
Gonzales KO 5th or 7th round. He needs to up his competition though he hasn't fought a solid contender since his last 4 fights.
Kamegai is still green but he's a pretty solid puncher but there's no way I can see him taking out Jesus Soto who is definitely one of the toughest fighters in boxing period. I mean Mike Jones had around the same KO percentage as Kamegai and he still couldn't take out Karass even with all those bombs he threw. I see Karass stopping Kamegia by 8th round or a decision.
