Since Mayweather's rib injury is now healed (some say miraculously) the fight is moved to September 19 in an effort to sucker in Mexican fight fans to buy the match in their Independence day celebrations. Now, Mexican fight fans are smarter....smarter than some Mexican-American boxing writers. I wonder how many of them will bite the bait and watch the fight. Brave predictions of "Mayweather will wipe Marquez off the floor" came out long before the Mayweather vs Marquez match materialized. Make no mistake, Marquez is the heavy underdog not just because of the weight difference but in his last match he made a very poor start. Yes, Marquez is a noted slow starter but he was unusually sluggish in the fight against Diaz. Diaz hurt him bad in the first few rounds. Inexperience, naivety and poor judgment eventually led to Diaz's knockout loss. Marquez did recover I give him that but Mayweather is completely another fighter - a world-class one with an ability to finish.
