Drums of War Sound Again: Vazquez-Marquez I and II

Israel Vazquez and Rafael Marquez are both incredible to watch. Thundering power, deft boxing skills, heart for days. Both men have all of that.

I want to help hype the hell out of their third fight, coming up on Saturday, March 1, because they deserve it. And because I want everyone to see this fight.

I do mean everyone. I want boxing fans, MMA-exclusive fans that find boxing to be dull, football fans, baseball fans, basketball fans, hockey fans that miss fights, soccer moms, cats and goldfish to see this fight.

If you're a casual boxing fan that has stumbled to Bad Left Hook, and you think you only care about "big fights" or the heavyweights, then give these two 122-pounders a chance. No, they aren't big guys. But tell me these aren't bone-rattling shots. Tell me the skill isn't just off the charts. Tell me, after watching these fights, that you just can't see yourself watching the smaller weight divisions.

Showtime should be given great credit for the loyalty they've shown to these two wonderful fighters. And it's because of Showtime that we have good video of the first two fights between the warriors to share with you. They're encouraging everyone to share their media, and that's a nice step from the network.

Without any further ado, Bad Left Hook presents to you via Showtime: Israel Vazquez v. Rafael Marquez I and II. If you've never seen the fights, watch them. If you've seen them, you know you want to watch them again.
