PPV worthy?Who knows the card as a whole & not just the main event is better than any previos one i can think of.Plus 2 elite fighters in Sergio & rigo & throw in in rafa vs vasquez,Macklin it might be worth it for me at least.Will only pay cause i know jr is getting beatdown & sergio deserves a big payday.Not to mention 2 of my fav fighters i just previously stated.Rigo deserves the recognition as well,heres hoping he lands the donaire fight or any big fight soon.

The undercard is actually okay — especially the Marquez-Vazquez Jr. As far as Chavez Jr. is concerned, it will not be an easy fight for him — quite to the contrary. Martinez will win this one — although I don’t think that Martinez will have it that easy. It will be a very competitive fight because of Chavez Jr.’s body punching and stalking punching style which will make Martinez have to pick his shots and do lots of moving. Heck, HYPEBUSTER said it way much better — except that he makes it look easy for Martinez whereas I think that Martinez will have to work at it really much more intensely. Actually, I would want HYPEBUSTER to be right on the money come fight night for the whole time because my bet is on Martinez.

hype buster

Look at my name… Hype buster to the rescue. I will save you money. Chavez is the epitome of hype. It’s sad how people fall for it. Just like all the other hype jobs, e.g. Vargas being exposed by Trinidad, and DLH had seconds, Martinez will rape this hype job chavez and the hype will end. Let me summarize the fight: you know when you have a fly that doesn’t leave you alone and just keeps landing on you and you can’t get to it? There is the summary. Martinez will be tagging and moving, tagging and moving, tagging and moving, and the hype will be chasing him around looking foolish, like we do when we chase that fly around. :)

WHy is Floyds c))k in your mouth when the thread is about other fighters? i just curious…

Vazquez vs Marquez is a mismatch?? WTH!! I don’t believe that for a second…I mean, it’s Marquez for goodness sakes! He’s a battle tested warrior who comes to fight EVERY time, he took some of Juanma’s best shots and he was still there banging it out, he even wobbled Juanma several times. He may not be what he once was, but the guy comes to fight and comes to win.

Rigondeaux should be fighting vasquez jr and marquez should be fighting marroquin. top rank have everything arse ways as usual. just like how it took arce to back out just so we could the good fight with nishioka

Junior has already Earned the Respect of all the True Boxing Fans just for taking on the #3 P4P Martimez WIN or LOSE, Something the other junior only Dreams of taking part, A REAL CHALLENGE.

Another easy figtht for Chavez Jr. Martinez is overrated.

Posted August 6, 2012 9:54 am 


So according to this writer a fighter coming off of a loss, no matter the quality of these previous fights should be written off? Who is this clown? Macklin lost a spirited fight against one of the beswt in the divions and was robbed against in that previous fight. Always comes to fight and can hang with the big boys, why wouldn’t I want to see him fight on an undercard. Vasquez Jr was in a fight of the year candidate in his first loss and had some moments against Donaire. Rafa may be past his prime but I would watch him any time he steps intothe ring because he is a hall of famer that gave us one of the best fights with Vasquez and a 75% version of Rafa is better than many of the so called top ten in the division. And it is a PR Vs MEX fight, those are always entertaining.

writer is mostly right. Macklin vs. Alcine would have been a great fight five years ago. today it is a curiousity. Alcine has shown-up asleep in his last few fights. And I think Alcine has been a career 154 pound fighter and this fight is probably at 160. So, Macklin should win — which is actually good for boxing because Macklin has put up good performances in losing efforts against the best fighters in the world. So, I am OK with a tune-up type fight for Macklin. I have seen worse PPV cards. This is bad but not the worst.

so you mean a matchup between a guy who was in a barn burner against arce and a decent fight against donaire vs a guy who is never in a dull fight is a bad matchup. that makes no sense. Fighters lose so what its the fighters who take risks and put on a fight i want to see. yes marquez is over the hill but that just means more action cause he wont be going anywere with his footwork. I agree the rest of the card sucks. I personaly think nobody is willing to fight rigo. but fighters fight he shouldnt wait and get rust or out of form just cause every one is scared

How can I contact you Robbb??

a legend vs. a good young fighter. sounds good to me. Marquez is not what he use to be, true, but he is still a fighter with guts and heart. he damn well near got to juanma did he not. competitive in my opinion. Dont ever count out a Mexican with a heart as big as Marquez.

Roberto Marroqiunn can be a dangerous he was an excellent amtuer and is a very dangerous puncher, he has excellent handspeed and skills. Rigo will run around and win a decision after he samples Marroqiunn power.

Marquez’s was competitive against JuanMa before the injury forced him to pull out.

I love how Chavez sr. I trying to bait Martinez into getting into a brawl. Telling Martinez that he doesn’t have a fan friendly style and he runs around the ring a lot . Martinez is going to pick this kid apart. The only chance Chavez has is a lucky punch. If he is going to try and bully Martinez Chavez will be getting tagged often. I see this fight ending ending with a stoppage. I don’t see this going the distance. Martinez by tko within 10rds.

Compared to Top Ranks last PPV this is a good card. And anyway it’s HBO who wants Chavez Jr to become a PPV star.

We’ll continue to get trash PPV events as long as boxing fans keep paying for them. We can blame the pormoters, the networks or what have you, but at the end of the day, it comes down to those who support these events.

Posted August 5, 2012 5:44 pm 


I think the undercard will be more entertaining then what people expect. Marquez vs Vasquez I feel will be very competitive. It’s a do or die fight for both and to top it off it’s the classic mexico vs puerto Rico rivalry. I also see macklin vs Alcine as a very good match up if they both come to fight.

Marquez vs. Jr is not a missmatch at all.


Marquez hasn’t beat a top level fighter since 2007. I’d say it’s a mismatch, and not one I’d want to want to pay to see.

Posted August 5, 2012 5:36 pm 


It’ll be competitive untill Martinez starts to break Chavez down

Posted August 5, 2012 5:30 pm 


Not even the main event is gonna be competitive. Martinez is gonna beat chavez down
