According to sources on both sides, there are ongoing negotiations between Top Rank and Main Events to finalize a junior welterweight fight between Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1, 39KOs) and Zab Judah (42-7, 29KOs) for July 14th at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Marquez holds the WBO's interim-title.
Earlier today, Judah was present in the press room at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and appears to be confident that a deal will be closed for a fight with Marquez.
Judah would return from a one-sided ninth round TKO win over previously undefeated Vernon Paris in March, while Marquez won a twelve round unanimous decision over Sergey Fedchenko on April 14th in Mexico.
