Burns-Katsidis Winner To Get Juan Manuel Marquez Shot

The winner of the lightweight battle between Ricky Burns and Michael Katsidis, will fall in line for a shot at WBO lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez. The sanctioning body issued a ruling at their annual convention in Puerto Rico, that Marquez would have to face the Burns-Katsidis.

The fight depends on the outcome of Marquez's trilogy bout, set for November 12 in Las Vegas, with WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao. It also depends on whether or not Marquez, win or lose with Pacquiao, returns to the lightweight division.

Burns and Katsidis will battle for the vacant WBO interim title on November 5th at Wembley Arena in London. If Marquez decides to continue his career above 135-pounds, the winner of Burns-Katsidis would become the full champion.

Marquez already faced Katsidis in 2010, where the Mexican boxer got off the floor in the third round to stop the tough Australian in the ninth.

JMM won't go back to lightweight. That means he would have to fight Rios soon.

[QUOTE=onechance87]the winner of this should fight bam bam[/QUOTE] I prefer Bam Bam to fight Marquez afterwards... but I want him to move up to 140 ASAP. Also, sucks for burns if he wins and does this because he'll be moving up in weight again.
