Did anyone posted about this:

Btw, Bartolomeo may be based on the same pirate as Ace.
Bartolomeu Portugues. And he's after Mera Mera.
Sorta like BB, WB, and Thatch were all based on the same pirate, and BB ended up taking the other two's fruits.
Possible parallels in theme there, Oda."
So it would seem that Oda would make Bartolomeo get that fruit in some way, with Luffy letting it happen willingly.
As for unwilingly- for me Luffy after time skip is shaping up to be absolute top pirate from young generation of pirates. Even if Burgess was said to be beast in strength I would still say that Luffy has a chance of winning with him without using rubber fruit.
He is gifted when it comes to fighting, had best teacher for two years. He is at least at level that Ace shown before death. So that would make him be able to fight with Doflamingo same way he defeated Lucci and have any hope of fighting and not loosing nakamas when it comes to Emperors.
Bartolomeo obviously is Sabo,
Oda was asked if Sabo was dead, and answered: Yes.
If he didn't it would have been too obvious that he's alive.
Maybe Sabo died and Bartholomeo was born.
"In this picture of Ace's and Whitebeard's graves from chapter 668 cover page left you see the cleaned version which was included with the tankobon format of One Piece, right one is from the jump in which the texts were covering an important part of the picture: the three cups in front of Ace's grave." I took it from here http://allmangareviews.blogspot.com/...a-hinting.html

I didn't realized sabo was confirmed dead in one of the databooks. Thats a real shame, I really wanted sabo to be alive and a revolutionary. I guess that leaves the question of who it was that dragon found at sea during the flashback though. Perhaps it was sabo but he didn't survive anyways? It could be an interesting plot point in the future once luffy and dragon meet... I doubt oda is going to take a figurative approach to what was said in the databook and make it so that "sabo the pirate" died and "sabo the revolutionary" was born....
Well, even if Oda has stated that Sabo is dead already..
He can always pulls an " Oh I thought he is dead " in the SBS..
remember fuji saying something like "its best for you and i that i dont tell you that" , also take in to account that when fuji went to make his move at the tournament, he asked how many people were around, because he was more concerned with protecting the citizens than capturing their objective, fuji said something like "before counting the number of enemies, shouldnt we count the number of people we need to protect?" which surprised the marine next to him
this tells me that unlike akainu fujitora is much like aokiji, in that he has a TRUE sense of justice, and doesnt just "follow orders"

I don't think fujitora is anything like aokiji... Aokiji as a whole seems undecisive as a whole, I get the impression he is unsure of where he stands and more importantly where he wants to stand. Being a vagrant of sorts seems to have helped him in finding his path so to speak. Fujitora is different, he seems to have his priorities right in place and seems to be far more likely to take action. Right now the marines are well aware that there are pirates about to move on against doflamingo and a yonko.... right now it does not appear so bad however fujitora is right in wanting to protect the citizens of the country. An admiral has been mobilized, BB's first made has appeared, a VA was taken out by a rookie, the monster trio are at large through the country, the doflamingo family is about to fight at the coloseum and they will not let doflamingo fall so easily and kaido's wrath is likely to be aimed to many people at dressrosa soon.... doflamingo himself is likely to get involved in the fighting.... Just a single individual of those I have mentioned so far is easily capable of destroying a nation on his own,dressrosa is in a situation so dire that every citizen there dying as a result is not actually unlikely. Dressrosa could easily disappear soon.
This is kind of off-topic but the databooks are written by the publisher of OP, compiling the already given and obvious information. Of course Oda´s name covers it but he is not actually working on it. Furthermore, the databook is not allowed to reveal any kind of future development, not that they would not about it anyway. So, the databook is in no way confirmation of Sabo´s death nor does it give any hope for Sabo being alive.
