    The Fringe Report : Marquez vs. Diaz

    Well, It was Saturday night, I was flipping through the channels looking for something to watch and I stumbled upon boxing on HBO. I caught the end of the Chris John, Rocky Juarez fight, which was pretty good, at least the last 3 or 4 rounds that I saw. It went to the cards and ended in a draw.

    I decided to watch the next fight, and I am glad I did. Juan Marquez vs. Juan Diaz, they were fighting for the vacant WBA and WBO lightweight belts plus Diaz's IBO belt. From the first bell it was non-stop action. For the first 3 rounds, I would give the edge to Diaz, but after that they were pretty close. Until the 9th round when Marquez (35) put Diaz (25) down to the canvas for a standing 8 count, then moments after put him down for the count.

    If you are a die hard or casual boxing fan you need to try and catch this fight. HBO usually replays these fights and you can also catch them on-demand. Marquez, who fought Pacquiao to a draw in 2004, now wants to lure Mayweather out of retirement. Good luck, he isn't the only one trying to do it, I know that "The Golden Boy" Oscar De La Hoya has been trying for a couple of years now. That's all for now, I am Rubba Shoes Corey, keepin' it real.
