When Boxers Make War–Toshiaki Nishioka vs Rafael Marquez

This Saturday at the MGM Grand, two top super banty boxer/puncher types meet in a crossroad fight of sorts, Toshiaki Nishioka vs Rafael Marquez for the WBC strap.

The 36 year old Rafael Marquez is the underrated brother of Juan Manuel Marquez and is still a dangerous fighter looking to regain his mojo. The 35 year old Toshiaki Nishioka is one of my favorite fighters to watch, very much underappreciated due to his exotic career staged mostly in the rough and tumble Japanese pro boxing venues.

Some top notch boxing that is almost guaranteed to heat up into a classic knock down, dragged out war, so catch it if you can.
