This fight is gonna be different from the three other fights in the sense that we're going to see two guys out to win the fight by knockout. So, unlike the pervious three fights, we have Manny attack, and Marquez counter punch, you'll see both fighters carrying the fight to each other. So I'm looking for a very exciting fight that's going to end in a knock out one way or another. Guaranteed.
