Vazquez-Marquez IV Week

In anticipation of Israel Vazquez vs. Rafael Marquez IV: Once And Four All, SHOWTIME will re-air each of the duo’s three epic bouts in their entirety as well as an updated version of Vazquez-Marquez: The Trilogy all week leading up to the live event on Saturday, May 22. It all begins on Monday, May 17 with Vazquez vs. Marquez I at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME2.

Originally aired following their third fight, The Trilogy is a two-hour documentary that takes viewers inside this incredible rivalry; a rivalry rooted in Mexican pride, fueled by warrior-like determination and cultivated by mutual respect for one another – a true rarity in sport. The in-depth documentary breaks down each of the three fights—and replays the entire, epic third fight—with opinions and analysis from the fighters, their managers and trainers, reporters and industry experts.
