Let's not sleep on Juanma.
To many, he's damaged goods...in this fight, he's a man with everything to gain and nothing to lose...very dangerous situation for Garcia. He's lost it all, and we've seen him at his worse. I mean really, whose truly expecting him to show up for this one?
With that in mind, the pressure of "looking good" has gone out the window for Juanma. That's less pressure to focus on looking flawless, and more of an opportunity to pull off the upset in the ugliest fashion possible.
I like Mikey, but I like Juanma more in this one. I have him pulling off the TKO early in this one. As bad as his chin is, he still has speed, and can counter over the jab nicely (like he did in the Marquez fight).
It's like Lopez has to win here to stay on top. You know, can he get his punches working on Garcia before he starts getting frustrated and sees haunting visions of Saido. It all deprends. If Lopez hurts Garcia early, can and how well does he come back? If Garcia gets frustrated than Lopez has a shot, a huge shot. However, if Lopez lands on Garcia early and nothing happens, Lopez gets worn down and therefore taken out of the fight.
I think Lopez has to do what he's gonna do to win quickly, or it's gonna be a long night for him. Lopez must within four rounds or it's all Garcia.
