On Saturday night in Houston, Texas, WBC junior welterweight champion Erik Morales (52-7, 36KOs) will defend his title against unbeaten Danny Garcia (22-0, 14KOs). If Morales is able to overcome the 24-year-old Garcia, the four division champion is certainly interested in facing Mexican rival Juan Manuel Marquez on July 14th in Cowboys Stadium.

Marquez (53-6, 39KOs) faces Sergiy Fedchenko for the WBO's interim 140-pound title on April 14th in Mexico City. If Marquez wins, there is talk that he could face Brandon Rios, who takes on Richard Abril on the same date, on July 14. However, there are rumors in Mexico that Morales is another fighter being considered to face Marquez on the big July show.

Morales is very interested in the fight, but doesn't believe Marquez, or his co-promoter Fernando Beltran, will make it happen.

"First, I have to be 100% to defeat Danny [Garcia]. For me, [to fight Marquez in July] there is no problem. It's an interesting [fight]. He's with Top Rank and although I have a good relationship with [Top Rank CEO] Bob Arum, I don't believe Marquez [would fight] me and I don't believe that Fernando Beltrán would [allow him to fight] me," Morales said.

If Morales retains the title, and walks away without injury, he expects to return in the month of June.

"I have proposals [to fight in] Guanajuato, Cancún and Mexicali," Morales said.

Only if Morales looks really good against Garcia otherwise Rios is a more appealing fight

[QUOTE=Toyman]that would be an interesting fight seeing as to how they have combined for 5 losses against pac[/QUOTE] Both of these guys whooped on Pac too. Morales beat him definitively once, and Marquez pretty much pounded that ass for the majority of 3 fights, at least in my eyes and the ey...

[QUOTE=El_Purepecha]Morales, you're a Pimp but Marquez is a Boss. So I'll have to put my money on Marquez. Would be a great fight thought. An all out Legend of Legends Showdown. Let's do this![/QUOTE] I agree....WAR MARQUEZ!!!!
