I honestly think Rebecca will win. Sabo, Burgess and Diamante are all stronger than her but she can still win if she played the game right. She just need to wait until the rest knock each other out and claim the fruit for herself.
Though her win would make the audience (and some of the readers) hate her even more.
Yeah I feel like it has to be Rebecca. The fact that the mera mera no mi is in the arena with them makes me fairly confident it will be eaten right at the climax of the fight rather than being claimed by someone but not eaten. That rules out Barto and Diamante. In terms of the over-arching plot it feels like neither Burgess nor Sabo can afford to lose this. Sabo's just come back so losing his first real fight would be lame and Burgess is a member of what's shaping up to be the final antagonist's crew, so for him to lose this far from the final battle would be weird too.
That suggests to me that Rebecca will get the mera mera by way of smarts/luck/heartwarming underdog determination/interference/all of the above/whatever, leaving the Sabo and Burgess conflict unresolved.
I also think it is quite possible that the fight would get interrupted so there may not be a winner. Somebody else may make a run with the fruit.
The fight could be interrupted by an explosion in the smile factory just below the coliseum. Though there is quite a huge space between the coliseum and the factory.So it may not be affected.
Well if Diamante wins then the fruit is "up for auction" once again. Diamante might "win" through some trick, like pulling some lever and they all go to the "sharks". XD If tings get sticky Diamante might follow Dofla's orders and prematurely end the tournament. I see this as most plausible now that even DD knows it's not Luffy in the ring.
Diamante's victory would be pointless, cause it would mean nobody would get the fruit. And also because Doflamingo and his crew are going down. Rebecca defeating Diamante is an interesting thought, even though it would certainly make the audience hate her even more - the loathsome descendant of King Riku beating the Colosseum's famed hero? Yup.
Sabo will most likely take out Burgess and fight Rebecca one on one. Bartolomeo will go down.
I dont think its gonna get interrupted. The tournament final is organised in a way that the winner is the person with the fruit in his hand or stomach.
rules Diamante set out for the Colosseum final, the winner is the one who is BOTH the possessor of the Mera Mera no Mi and the last remaining finalist standing within the arena.
I find the dual criteria Diamante set out to establish a winner quite strange as the things could end up with no winner decided. Sabo could just take the Mera Mera no Mi and leave the Colosseum while the final is still ongoing thereby disqualifying him for stepping outside the arena. With the Mera Mera no Mi gone, regardless of who becomes the last remaining finalist standing, they won't meet the dual criteria specified by Diamante =/.

barto could make a barrier and walk to rebecca and push her to the water, she could dodge attack but not a wall.
i like how barto just became good friend with sabo and luffy.
luffy his hero and sabo his master or sensei.
but rebecca is smart. she got behind barto cause she know his ability
Bart beats diamante
Rebecca backstabs bert and knocks him down by hitting his head or neck.
Master roshi- i mean sabo beats burgess and pushes rebecca in the water or sabo vs burgess is a tie.

And then fighter fish eats rebecca. XD
the winner is the person who eats the fruit first. Beating everyone first makes it easier to eat the fruit, since it would be kind of hard to eat it when people are trying to kill you. I don't want sabo to eat it, but I think he will win.
Dont worry. Sabo wont be eating it. He said so himself that he will give the fruit to someone who can inherit aces will.
I think Sabo will win the battle, but I'm not gonna rule out him giving the fruit to Rebecca, or even Burgess eating it and still getting defeated.
I wouldnt like it if sabo does end up getting the fruit and i dont think oda intends to either. We havent seen his skill set yet.
