Top Rank's CEO, Bob Arum, predicts that a proposed fight between Juan Manuel Marquez (53-6-1, 39KOs) and WBA/IBF junior welterweight champion Lamont Peterson (30-1, 15KOs) could draw up to 40,000 fans to Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Arum is trying to finalize a Marquez-Peterson fight for July 14th.

"Juan Manuel against Lamont would be a great fight. What the promoters believe, is that it might get up to 40,000 people, but the trick is to make [the tickets] affordable," Arum said.

Negotiations are ongoing and Arum hopes to complete a deal. As part of the agreement, Arum still wants to stage a March 17th doubleheader in Mexico City, which is going to feature Marquez and Peterson in separate bouts to build their July clash.

[QUOTE=adp023][U]For the most part, only Mexicans and Pac haters felt that JMM was "robbed". [/U]The fact that JMM overcame expectations was a moral win. IMO, JMM fought better in the first two fights against Manny than the third. I think it was the fact he was such a huge underdog going into ...

Yea and marquez pacquiao would probably fill it dummy.

comment by flint, on 02-03-2012
there goes arum with this build up ****.if either peterson or marquez fight somebody else then they won't fight each other because something is going to go wrong. this fight in cowboys stadium won't happen unless they go right into it.
