    Olivares. think he would be too aggressive and busy for Zarate. I see this as an explosive fight with several knockdowns. Probably will go no more than 6-7 rounds.

    I think Olivares had the better career overall, beat a larger number of good fighters and was better at handling defeat, however i'm not sure i see him getting past the significant physical advantages and shorter, straighter punching of Zarate.

    Carlos also had the better jaw at Bantam imo.In a war i see him standing up to Ruben's punches a bit better.


    Very close though and not a fight i would bet much money on.

    Gosh

    I tend to side here with Zarate as well here. The bludgeoning loss to Gomez is tough to erase from the mind, but then agian, Gomez was a different animal than Ruben was as well.

    I see a Zarate Zamora Replay, but it goes a bit longer and it's a bit more brutal, both ways.

    Great matchup.

    There is only two guys that I think could beat Olivares at his best (118 lbs) that been Manuel Ortiz and Eder Jofre.
