By Miguel Rivera

According to promoter Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions, WBO interim-junior welterweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1, 39KOs) has advised him that his preference is to fight a lefty on July 14th at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Among the possible names mention, include undefeated Mercito Gesta (25-0-1, 13KOs) and top-rated Paul McCloskey (23-1, 12KOs), who faces DeMarcus Corley on May 5th. Several other boxers are being considered, says Beltran, and indicates that Brandon Rios (30-0-1, 22KOs) is not one of them.

Marquez wants to work his way to full shot at the title at 140-pounds and wants to fight Manny Pacquiao in a fourth meeting in the fall.

"I won the WBO's interim championship and it was an important step in my goal of winning the absolute title at 140-pounds," Marquez said.

[QUOTE=Johnny_Roa]At least he's better than your b*tch Pacquiao :bottle:[/QUOTE] JMM fighting McCloskey sounds like a poor choice, same with Gesta, definately not Rios (that dude needs to find where Clottey hides and go there.. forever!) Someone said earlier he needs to fight dudes who will help...

His career is nearly over he has wasted so much time already throughout his career fighting guys like this it does nothing for his resume. He really needs to chase a big fight before he goes out JMM is a legend but he shouldn't be fucking with guys like Fedchenko and McCloskey at this stage.

McCloskey is an interesting boxer (who doesn't deserve Marquez yet) but if they want a lefty as preparation for Pac, his style is so different that they may better fight a quadruped.

I'd red k everyone in this page if I had enough rep power.

McCloskey & Corley's jole as demarcus is all but shot, & knows it as he just take paydays...JMM would rip him up...Zab would b a good bout, Alvarado can only go so far as technically he won't last...Rios deserves no title shot...
