    I think Marquez convicingly wins this fight, but this time by decision, or possible late KO, but Im leaning towards a decision victory. Diaz is awful, has no reason whatsoever to be headlining a PPV, I hope after he loses, he becomes nothing more than a regional act that focuses on his education and gets out of boxing, but regardless of what happens in the rematch that there is no purpose for, this PPV has one of the more solid undercards I've seen in a while, even some off TV fights are worthy of having television time such as Mendy-Bika IBF Eliminator.

    Hell yeah that undercard is stacked.
    Which fights are being aired?

    I would assume:
    Jacobs - Pirog
    Guerrero - Casa
    Bika - Mendy

    I just hope one of these fights doesn't get bumped for Linares - Juarez.

    I think Bika-Mendy may be a free stream (to attract buyers) and Linares-Juarez would be on the main card.

    Juan Diaz is far from an awful fighter.

    Linares-Juarez is opening the PPV. Mendy-Bika won't air on PPV.

    I think Diaz is a good fighter, but the first fight with Marquez was probably his high moment. He could have another moment of greatness, but I doubt it. I think Marquez wins this by round 8-9 stoppage, but in a more dominant fashion.

    At first I thought Marquez would KO Diaz even faster in this fight but now I'm thinking it will go to decision or be a late stoppage. I remember before Pavlik-Taylor 2 everyone was expecting it to be as action packed as the first fight, but then it turned out to be a more tactical fight, with both guys being more cautious. I think this fight will be the same.

    I think Marquez is going to have to be saved in this fight. The Baby Bull is going to be relentless with his attack.Much more then in the fight fight and Marquez wont be able to time him as good as in the first fight.

    I can't wait for Sat. I will be buying this card for sure.

    It's gonna be entertaining, but hard to top the 1st. Who knows it might be another great trilogy, but for now I tend to think it won't be as good

    Juan Diaz is good, Show some respect. He pushed a great fighter like Marquez and gave him a lot of trouble.

    That being said I think Marquez takes this one again.

    What makes you think that? Diaz was slowing down by the 8th round in the last fight. Not to mention it'll be hard to top the pace he had in the first 4 rounds of the first fight.

    I honestly can't see this fight NOT going to Marquez.

    Everybody thinks that Diaz can't adjust but in this fight I don't think he has too. He was doing good early in the first fight and I just think in this fight he going to keep it up. JMM was great at timing him in the middle rounds and start to fold Diaz once the cut happen but I think Diaz comes in ready for war and is going to be prepared mentally to walk though hell to get this win.

    I just can't see the Juan Diaz who just got rocked by Malignaggi being able to take Marquez's clean counters for the duration of the fight, but at least you have the conviction to stand behind that pick.

    That is my point, I don't think he has to adjust in this fight. I think if he just keeps up the same pace that he had going early in the first one it will enough to wear Marquez down in the late rounds of this one. Which has never happened but I think it will in this fight.

    Also I think the cut cause him alot of trouble in the first fight and I think him being mentaly prepared will help him push though it this time. I think he now knows what to expect from Juan and will be ready for war this time around.

    I'm so fucking tired of Rocky Juaraz. Putting him on the main card over an all action type guy like Bika makes me want to puke.

    Thats just what I think will happen, if I am wrong I be the first to admit it.

    I really don't have to big of a problem with buying this fight cause of the under-card. The Main event alone isn't worth it but the whole event I feel is.
