Juan Manuel Marquez's Return May Take a Bump To April

By Ernesto Castellanos

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.
