Juan Manuel Marquez Return Eyed For March 17 in Mexico

By Salvador Rodriguez

If Manny Pacquiao takes a pass on a fourth fight with Juan Manuel Marquez (53-6-1, 39KOs), then the Mexican boxer may possibly headline a show on March 17th at a new venue in Mexico City, according to promoter Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions. One possible opponent for the March fight is former lightweight champion David Diaz (36-4-1, 17KOs), who was once in the running to face Marquez in 2011.

"We would like the fight with Pacquiao, but if it doesn't happen, then there is a strong possibility that he'll fight in the new arena with a southpaw like David Diaz, so we kill two birds with one stone because [Marquez] fulfills his dream of fighting in Mexico City and he would fight a southpaw in preparation for a new fight with Pacquiao," said Beltran.

Sounds good. He should be able to give his people a show. If he was to face Pacquiao, Bradley, or Peterson/Khan he might lose. Wouldn't want to lose in front of your people.
