Juan Manuel Marquez-David Diaz on July 2 in Las Vegas?

By Miguel Rivera

According to reports in Mexico, Juan Manuel Marquez, the world lightweight champion of the World Boxing Association and World Boxing Organization, is planning to return on July 2 -possibly in a Las Vegas venue. One of the opponents being considered is Mexican-American David Diaz, a Chicago-born fighter with a record of 36 wins, 17 KOs, three defeats and one draw. Marquez wants to have a July fight to shake off the rust before facing Manny Pacquiao in a possible trilogy meeting in the fall. Diaz, a former WBC lightweight champion, has a decision win over Erik Morales, but later lost the title when he was knocked out by Manny Pacquiao in nine rounds.
