Dude was UNDERRATED & A BEAST
Beats all without a doubt, except for Inoue and Wangek.
And he would be called a weight bully.
Inoue would be a great action fight just like Manny.
He doesn't beat Rigo though
Beats them all bar Rigo.
No. The chance of Rafael Marquez fighting all of those guys and winning each time is close to zero.
He beats everyone except Inoue. Rigo is 50/50. The man was a real blood and guts warrior, although defensively flawed with a shaky chin. But a helluva puncher.
Loses to Inoue and Rigondeaux.
Arguably beats them all. I remember when he was considered the better brother.
Doubt he beats Rigo, although his power was an equalizer.
I'd have paid good money for Rafa vs SRR. Instant FOTY favorite and toss up for me.
Inoue and Rigo, I'd have favored over him.
The rest, I'd have Rafa as a varying degree of favorite.
Like Pimp, I remember when he was considered the better Marquez.
Out of curiosity, when did people consider Rafael better than JMM? JMM certainly aged better while Rafael got the prime beat out of him by Vazquez.
Rafa-Donaire would have been interesting. Bombs away.
Never. The OP is an ankle grabber.
Eh, no, he isn't entirely wrong. Before the Izzy trilogy, when the brothers were co-featuring on Showtime, a lot of people considered Juan a very good fighter but his biggest moment was still the Pacquiao I draw, in which he got dribbled off the canvas. He wasn't viewed as division kingpin material, whereas Rafa was seen as maybe an emerging top 5 ATG bantam.
