Bet the house , the farm and the money under the mattress on JM. Mile "high" mike is still driving while high and drunk. Just a few months ago he was caught ditching an escalade in the lake after a hit and run accident. Talk about retiring a legend is a "self" psych job that won't work. The fight is at the Forum not in Denver. Top Rank wants to boost JM not High Mike because as a long term investment he is a liability not an asset. MA might look good for a few rounds but I see him getting knocked out. I think even Arum mentioned that Mike didn't train in a bar this time around. Translated=that means he did in fact train in a bar this time around.

Damn Deep, what are you on today? You came out like a house of fire! Another epic post lol...

I was on the fence before but now I'm leaning towards JMM. think you're right, there's more cash in Marquez, even though it's short term. He can get TR a nice payday. Alvarado probably can't. He'll get them a nice bar tab, though! Haha....

Every time I go to forecast this fight, it ends up with Marquez winning. Here are some factors to keep in mind...

Marquez is 40 and Alvarado is 33. They have each been in their share of ring battles. But look carefully, which fighter is fresher and maybe even by boxing standards a little younger? Its Marquez and here's why.

Dating back to November 2011, Alvarado's last five fights are: Prescott, Herrera, Rios, Rios and Provodnikov. These were ALL wars. I mean give and take battles where Alvarado took quite a bit of punishment in each fight. Some (1st Rios fight and Provodnikov) much more than others. There were no long extended breaks or easy fights in between. This is brutal of a fighter's body and these types of continuous punishing fights age a fighter quickly.

Dating back to November 2011, Marquez last four fights are: Pacquiao, Fedchenko, Pacquiao and Bradley. He did not take anywhere close to the physical toll that Alvarado took during that same period. Not even close.

My point...yes Marquez is 40 and been through his share of wars. But not so much recently. It can be argued he is a fresh 40. Alvarado, on the other-hand, is an old 33. He has been through brutal battle after brutal battle. It has had to take both a physical and mental toll on him.

Also, this fight is in Marquez's backyard. We all know he tends to counter punch and land eye catching counter shots. The crowd will cheer wildly when he does. The crowd will not be vocal when Alvarado lands a jab and straight right hand behind that jab. Or for a flurry of arm punches. But when Marquez lands, they will cheer. The judges are human and it will be hard for them not to be influenced.

I think this will be a good one as almost everyone is predicting. I see just too many factors in Marquez's favor here and have to go with him winning a decision.

I suspect that the fallen Angel Heredia has Marquez seriously on dat syet again. So I expect for Hulkquez to make a grand appearance.

But Marquez will still lose because of the zombie-moving effect and rapid aging because the effects of dat hardcore syet that the fAH has him on.

It's over a 100 degree F in SoCal. So why in the heck is Marquez dressed as if his arse is in the North Pole?

Somebody oughta' dig a hole.

Marquez of yesteryears is GONE! DEAD! And he's not coming back

Actually in Marquez last two bouts, he did take as much as a beating that "Mile High" Mike took. But optical illusions and adroited promotions are causing many to be blinded of the actuality of the reality! Selling optical illusions, fans will be conned with any hook.

Da Manny beat da hebejeebeez outta Hulkquez/Marquez in their last bout. Hulkquez just got Da Manny with a one shot of one of the greatest lotto punches ever thrown. End of story. Marquez hidden up inside Hulkquez got the fame and glory.

But then, he got his arse nearly shut out by Tim Bradley.

Feather-punching Bradley hit him at will. And almost put him down in the last round. And Marquez still claimed that he won the bout. OMFG! Nobody ever beats Marquez. And unless MHM literally, nearly kill him or kayo him, Marquez will definitely get a home-cooking decision win or stoppage in Mexico -- I mean Calico.

I'm at the weight in, and I will be at the fights. I will be wearing a loud-colored fedora. And my son, Denzoy, will be sporting a San Diego Padres' baseball cap.

Nonetheless, since we are going to be hiding in plain sight, nobody may be able to recognize us. Unless of one those hos booty blind me. Hehehe!

@SRD and Brownbomber, I know that you guys are going to be there. Holla!
