Arum: Marquez-Peterson Could Draw 40,000 To Cowboys

By Salvador Rodriguez

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.
