LAS VEGAS—Juan Manuel Marquez, who hopes for a third chapter bout against Manny Pacquiao, probably here at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino and probably on Nov. 5 or 12, just confirmed a story which appeared on BoxingScene.com a few days ago.

“I am going to fight (former Pacman foe) David Diaz on July 2 and I will be the promoter of that fight. I just want to get really sharp to fight Pacquiao for the third time in November. I do not want to be rusty, I want to get myself extra sharp so I can show that I am the better fighter,” Marquez said.

In recent bouts, the master Mexican counterpuncher has beaten Juan Diaz and Michael Katsidis. Three bouts ago, he was widely decisioned the much bigger, much faster Floyd Mayweather Jr.

I know David Diaz isn't a great or even good match up, but Marquez clearly stated this is nothing more than a tune up fight before he fights Pac again. For a tune up, Diaz is perfect. He has a lot of heart, decent chin, but doesn't have much power or technical ability to potentially ruin a Pac...

I'm so worried withpacman, he might be charged with manslaughter if he fight Marquez on the WELTERWEIGHT coz he will kill and totally destroyed marquez on that fight, pacman is a legitimate welterweight now while marquez is just a lightweight, he will be facing a very different pacman in welterwe...

Good for Marquez for getting the 3'rd fight against Manny, he deserves a good payout.It's probably his last too.I am sure that Manny will KO him this time especially above 140 unless Marquez got into Manny's head like Manny on Floyd's.It's still gonna be a good fight.

[QUOTE=paulf]David Diaz? Are you ****ing serious? He's a nice guy and i'm sure he could use the cash, but the dude couldn't get by Kendall Holt. He's not on Marquez's level.[/QUOTE] Yeah, could get by Holt in 2005. Any other old **** you want to pretend is relevant now? Think you forgot...

David Diaz is fine for a tuneup. and it actually could be on ppv b/c hbo wont buy a diaz fight. and it does make sense to have the fight at 140 considering he's ginna fight Pac at anywhere from 144-147. Although I agree, Id rather see Marquez fight Morales, which would be more interesting and...
