Anyone else interested in this featherweight battle? The fight's in a couple of weeks and has been 'flying under the radar' so to speak. It's actually the undercard
fight to Ortiz-Maidana. Go figure, I guess it's because HBO is really pushing Ortiz.
Getting back to John-Juarez, I really enjoyed their first fight on the Marquez-Diaz undercard even if John got jobbed on the decision. I'm thinking John will look even better in this one and win by a wide UD. With Vasquez moving up and maybe some others like Marquez and JuanMa, the featherweight division could get real exciting. I realize some people don't regard John too highly as he's fought mostly in Asia, but he has travelled to Japen to take on some tough competiton in their own back yard. Then he went to Juarez's hometown for his US debut. I give the guy credit and wish him well. He's an excellent boxer imo.
Check out Rocky Juarez in the presser photos. Looks like he's got that DeNiro 'Taxi Driver' mohawk going on. http://www.goldenboypromotions.com/media/2009/may/5.28.09_pc/5.28.09_pc.htm
