Juan Manuel Marquez Will Not Be Fighting on July 14th

By Keith Idec

According to sources with knowledge of the situation, Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1, 39KOs) will not be fighting on July 14th at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. There have been disagreements over the opponent, with Marquez pushing to fight southpaw boxers like Cesar Cuenca and Mercito Gesta.

Marquez wanted a southpaw opponent to prepare for a potential fourth meeting with Manny Pacquiao in the fall. Top Rank had initially wanted to match Marquez against undefeated Brandon Rios, which the Mexican veteran rejected because Rios wasn't a southpaw.

There were even discussions between Top Rank and Golden Boy Promotions to match Marquez against countryman Erik Morales, but again Marquez wasn't too eager, telling BoxingScene.com last week that he wasn't interested because Morales wasn't a southpaw.

One source told BoxingScene.com that Marquez had yet to finalize an opponent - and considering the July date is only a few weeks away, there simply wasn't enough time to properly promote a pay-per-view event in such a short time period.

Oh well. Wasn't looking to forward to anyone but Rios or Judah anyway. He should just try to get the Pacquiao fight for the fall or just retire.

Why would anyone hate on Marquez? That is stupid. Juan is the man, and I can say as a big Pacman fan that JMM clearly won the 3rd fight. No knockdowns to cloud or confuse that situation. Manny knew he…

[QUOTE=Jack Ruby;12157096]Marquez could go to hell. Nobody wants another fight with Pac except him. He's cheating Morales out of glory and being a typical prick who can't pick the right fight to save his life. I hope he fights Gesta…
