i'm getting the feeling this is going to be a good scrap. mickey garcia is good...but he's not unorthodox or aggressive as salido. juanma may have his moments. i'm thinking smart money is on mickey...but juanma can still crack.

This has the ingredients of another war just like Showtime's two fights last weekend! I am gonna go with Garcia in 9. But it is NOT a fight I would feel comfortable betting on because Lopez can bang and can end the fight on one shot! Garcia might be a little better stamina-wise if he can take Lopez's shots early. But it's almost 50/50 whether he can, or not. You could almost say Lopez early. Garcia middle to late, I don't think this fight goes to a decision.

I think I saw a picture of him where he had a nasty bruise around his eye maybe three weeks ago.

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.

the thing that is good for lopez is that garcia isn't aggressive and ackward like salido was in their fights. he won't have to worry about garcia getting low on the inside and ripping those hooks he couldn't see coming from below. mikey is a lot more conventional in his approach.

I am going to be honest with you guys, I have not seen Lopez fight, I have seen Garcia fight and he is damn good. I think he has holes in areas but he can cover them against a weaker opponent. I want Garcia to win so we can see him fight Gary Russel Jr. or my dream fight, Garcia and Rigondeaux. Is Lopez Cuban? Because if he is, my Mexican brothers are batting low against the Cubans. We shall see.

i forgot juanma ko'd luevano. this is going to be revenge for robert garcia i'm sure. it's been a long time coming.
Plah
I voted García by wide UD. Too good for Juanma
wolterb
I predict Garcia wins by KO in 6th

juanma says he wants nonito donaire after he beats garcia.

Garcia came in overweight by two pounds. This may hurt him. He lost his belt and has to pay a fine. Damn

wow. garcia didn't even attempt to make the weight. that's some very unprofessional shit. i am now officially rooting for juanma to put mikey to sleep.
daprofessor
am i the only one who feels garcia and his corner quit against salido?

the broken nose wasn't impairing his vision. it was an accidental headbutt.

Maybe its time for Garcia to move up?

He is going to jr. light weight after this fight I believe. He had to fork over 100,000K to Lopez! Ouch

I'm as excited to see Crawford in action again as I am for the main event.
