The Marquez family could be positioning themselves to get revenge. According to sources within the Marquez camp, their team is exploring a possible fight between the younger Rafael Marquez, and WBA featherweight champion Chris John. The fight is rumored for an August date in Singapore.

Rafael (40-7, 36KOs) returns on May 5th in Tijuana, Mexico. John (46-0-2, 22KOs has a defense scheduled for the same date, at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, against Japanese challenger Shoji Kimura (24-4-2, 9KOs).

In 2006, John won a twelve round decision over Rafael's older brother, Juan Manuel Marquez. Juan Manuel has always believed that he was robbed by the judges.
