Default Marquez of last night vs Mayweather at 147

What say you?


The Marquez that fought Mayweather awhile back was no way in hell a legit 147 pounder. He has proven to be able to fight naturally at this weight.


In all honesty I would rather see this version of Marquez and Mayweather at 147.



Seeing him put on a clinic on Guerrero in a borefest does not interest me, and Canelo hasn't really proven shit to demand a shot at him at 154. Let him atleast fight Cotto first or Trout, he has spent much of his time beating up blown up smaller guys.

I think the current better conditioned version could win a few rounds.
But the style matchup is just horrible for JMM.
Floyd is a defensive counter puncher, where JMM is a offensive one... when these 2 styles clash it forces JMM to be the come forward aggressor which kills him.

Add to that Floyd has no qualms stinking up the joint for a win where JMM always feels compelled to put on a show.

I think if JMM had a really solid gameplan with his current conditioning he could maybe win 3 to 5 rounds.... but i doubt he could ever win.

I'd have to see him against someone else. He came into this fight looking for a knockout, didn't look quick or mobile. The speed was the issue in the last fight (styles aside), so he'd need to prepare differently and prove he's competent in that regard. At the very least, it's safe to say he does better.

Marquez has only fought 2 elite welterweights. One guy who's style he knew like the back of his hand, and another who is a horrible style match up. I'd like to see him in with someone else to see how good he is at this weight.

Tim Bradley would be a very stiff test.

That's fair, who do you believe out there at 147 "could" make a decent tune up in preparation for a Mayweather bout style wise???




I also believe the bout would be closer this time because I see Floyd gradually becoming less "mobile" and more "hittable" than before.

I think Marquez can beat him. Marquez is comfortable at the weight now, carried his speed and power, wont be cheated out of 2 lbs now and him and Nacho know how to improve with each fight. I want to see it more so than any other fight. Marquez deserves his shot at redemption!

A one-sided win on the part of Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Mayweather would beat this Marquez easier. He is still too big, to fast, and has too good of defense.

Bradley. Same reason I wanted Manny to fight Floyd right after the Bradley fight. He doesn't really fight like Floyd stylistically, but he can be negative, he's quick, he often protects himself with his left hand low, has a good counter-right hand, a good counter-hook, circles well, varied punch selection, etc. The reach isn't there and he may oblige JMM offensively on the inside his own way, but that's probably the closest thing we've got.
