Vasquez, Marquez now 1-1! Rubbermatch in Mexico City?

As you all know, Raphael Marquez and Israel Vasquez fought their Super Bantamweight Championship rematch this past weekend. Vasquez exacted his revenge on the defending champion Marquez, who had dethroned Vasquez of the title five months ago, stopping him in six exciting rounds. These two combatants were made for each other, as the greatest Mexican rivalry since Barrera/Morales has already emerged. Now that these two guys own one victory a piece against each other, should their be a rubber match to break the tie???? Absolutely! Should it happen right away? Definitely not. These two gladiators have fought two debilitating wars against each other in a short span of five months. Let these guy rest for the remainder of the year, and come back to give fans - especially the die hard Mexican boxing fans - the third and final installment of their trilogy that they rightfully deserve. After a year of rest, may Vasquez and Marquez each be rested up enough to put forth one last heroic effort against one another. Jose Sulliaman, President of the WBC, would like to see the rubber match happen in Mexico City, and in reality, that is where this great fight belongs - in the home country of these two brave warriors. I would like to see Vasquez/Marquez III happen sometime in March or even April of next year, and in Mexico City, on Showtime Championship Boxing.
