I don't know why but I can't get enough from watching these 2 go at it. 2 legendary fighters fighting once again for the 4th time.

Let's hope this ends in a TKO/KO so we can wrap up this trilogy.

I think it's more a quadrilogy than a trilogy now lol. At any rate, I hope JMM doesn't get robbed again.

Believe it or not, I really do not want to see this fight again. What's the point? Even if Manny could muster a KO victory, Marquez is already past his prime.

The reason Bradley 2 didn't happen is Bob Arum and his greed. He thinks he can get more PPV money by matching Manny and Marquez, maybe so, but I think Manny has to fight Bradley again at some point.

The Manny/Floyd saga will continue until both parties realize it is in each of their best interests as well as the fans to come to terms. Hopefully a match between them can be made in Spring 2013. I really don't want these two fighting one another when each of them is past their prime and no longer competitive. As it stands they are each on the tail ends of their prime and showing signs of slowing down.

I think after Marquez, Pac might call it quits. This will be how his legacy will end IMO

Neither Pac nor PBF still have what it takes to fight this younger generation, and the first time tested it will show

Both bring big bucks for the promoters.

I'm not so sure they will make more with a fourth match than if Manny fought a rematch with Bradley. I think most fans of Manny would rather he fight Bradley. Going in to their first fight Bradley was not a PPV draw like Cotto or other opponents. Everyone figured Manny would steam right through him. After the robbery, it would seem almost automatic that Manny would re-group, and focus on a more aggressive strategy for a rematch that would not leave it in the hands of the judges. I think a rematch with Bradley would have been a bigger PPV draw than this fourth match up with Marquez that no one really wants.

Marquez vs Pacquaio was a closer fight than Bradley vs Pacquaio. The only reason there would be any interest in a Bradley rematch is due to the fact that Pacquaio got robbed.

If the robbery hadn't taken place, nobody would want to see a rematch against Bradley. I think Pacquaio is making the best decision in taking Marquez. It's a more difficult opponent, has proven to make a more competitive fight, and will still generate the most money at welterweight, outside of Mayweather.

At least, that's my take.
