This just in,
Controversy before the fight from the locker room. Marquez's camp filed a protest with the WBC and Texas commissions about the manner in which Vazquez's hands were wrapped. Apparently they thought his wraps were done and then pulled further down the wrist? Rafael's camp threatened not to fight because of the skinning of the gloves. A Texas commissioner inspected the wraps of Vazquez and deemed them approved.

The fight will, however, go on.

Round3: one of the best rounds i've ever seen. Vazquez ROCKED Rafael with a hook to the cin, giving him chickenlegs. Rafael battled back and landed consistently, and then was caught with a few solid punches at the end of the round my Israel
Round to Israel
Vazquez got a good cut in the round as well. It also looks like Marquez has a cut under the eye

Round5: WOW. back and forth round. Vazquez hit the canvas after an exchange of punches both ways (in the middle of a flurry) and it was ruled a slip, which it was.
I felt Vazquez barely won the round, but it was close

Round6: Vazquez puts Marquez to the canvas! He goes on to finish him by a stoppage of the referee!

Vazquez landed a quick left hook to the body, then a short right uppercut inside, followed by a strong left hook which put him down.

This was one HELL of a battle as expected. Can't wait for the 3rd fight of the trilogy.
You got the feeling during this fight that either guy could have been knocked out at any time because of the viscous blows they were both landing.

Now the jackass announcer is saying he thinks it was stopped too early. Jackass.
Marquez's legs were gone since the first knockdown of the round, and he was wobbly. The ref gave him almost half a round, while he was trying to stay away and recover, but he kept getting hit, and then was backed to the ropes were he was taking shots and was in bad shape. A VERY good stoppage if you ask me.

you couldnt really say the stoppage was that bad. i mean marquez was hurt and firign back though. Personally i would of loved it to last longer because i felt marquez could of turned it around possibly to and could of even added to the fight. I wish it would of went longer but i think the winner was clear in this fight. IT was so damn close though..im gonna watch it again.
