    Lets say 118 and 122 in separate matches. Does it look anything like this up and downer?

    How did I miss this one!? Marquez was my favourite fighter of his time. However, I have only seen Zamora against Zarate, so anyone more informed care for a prediction?

    This would have been a highly entertaining punch fest with both fighters getting knocked down but ultimately I think Rafael’s more polished technique and better boxing will help beat the more crude Zamora.

    This is an interesting bout. Marquez The Younger and Zamora are very closely matched in my opinion.

    Either could win it but, if forced to bet, I'd go for an early-to-mid-round KO victory for Zamora. RM had the occasional tendency to slowly shift through the gears but, against Zamora, he could effectively be caught cold.

    Pretty much a total punt - but I have to justify the back somehow :)
