According to Juan Carlos Torres, executive coordinator for Zanfer Promotions, the next ring appearance of WBA/WBO lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez (53-6-1, 39KOs) may take place in Mexico on April 14 or April 21. The previous date mentioned by both Zanfer and Top Rank was March 17th, also in Mexico. The fight could take place in Puebla, Chiapas, or a new arena in Mexico City. While former champion David Diaz has been mentioned as a possible opponent, there could change in plans.

And, negotiations are ongoing to finalize a pay-per-view fight between Marquez and WBO/WBA 140-pound champion Lamont Peterson for July 14th at Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Now that he is heavier and bigger might be the right moment to challenge chicken Floyd for a rematch. Maybe this time around JMM can not be fooled by the chicken in th...

I don't like when fighters start choosing the big name opponent before they fight the current 1. That makes the game of boxing look bad. It shows that the current opponent isn't suppose to win. It's really as clear as day. Look at Khan looking past Peterson. Only to start strong & end up fight...
