after watching a replay of the fight from saturday i wondered if the rest of the boxing fans in the country are as intrested in a rematch as i am.
One reason why i want a rematch is because im so high on Juan Diaz. The second marquez leaves the division diaz will become the class of the division. Cut issues aside he is talented and a former champion who's only 2 losses are to world class fighters. Maybe im so high on juan because, unlike sc, i feel like he went out like a champ against nate cambell when he was having all the eye issues. Fought til the end and never just rolled over. Same with his loss to marquez, he kept coming forward until marquez put him on the ground with great punches from a no doubt about it hall of famer. Another reason is that this was a great fight fought at such a high level of skill and was so competetive its almost as if we were cheated out of the rest of the fight because of the cut and knockout. Its the biggest fight to be made at lightweight still, and i know that the big fights for marquez are all above 135 (manny, hatton, flloyd etc.) but instead of waiting til late summer (at earliest) for the manny-hatton winner why not give juan the rematch. I know that most knockout victims are not awarded the privilage of a rematch but juan fought punch for punch with one of the two best fighters in the world. This is not meant to take anything away from Marquez, he won and put on a textbook display of finishing a fight with the 2 knockdowns in the 9th round. Its just that the fights hes looking foreward to arent available til late summer at best, why not fight again. Both are golden boy fighters so it would seem that the fight would be easy to make,and with the show they put on on saturday selling tickets will not be hard. what do you guys think? does juan deserve a rematch? does a rematch matter? are you intrested in seeing marquez-diaz II?
