Marquez, Morales Still Hammering Details For Their Fight

By Hesiquio Balderas

We had the oportunity to talk to a source inside Golden Boy Promotions about the rumors in Mexico pertaining to the fight between Erik Morales and Juan Manuel Marquez, which is scheduled for April 9 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. He told BoxingScene.com that there is not a done deal yet, and there are a lot of things still on the table, but they hope that the fight gets made as soon as possible.

In Mexico the big rumor is that the fight is off and that Marquez is probably looking for a new foe.

''That is not true at all, the fight is not off just because it's not signed yet. There are very little details that need to be worked out, those are details like who will come first to the ring, who will be introduce first and things like that, and not a big deal. Marquez is the champion and he deserves to come in last and introduced second, but those are things that are on the table and will be solved. If not then we will get Juan another opponent," conlcuded our source.

Marquez and Morales are expected to fight in april 9, 2011 at the MGM Grand  & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada but everything is still in the air.

I dont see Morales being any effective on this fight, the last time he took a long brake and came back to the ring got KOed badly by Pac. Marquez will eat this guy alive...

I love Morales however I think he is in way over his head against a near-prime JMM. This is a good stay busy fight for JMM and afterward, he can seek out Pacquiao, Bradley or Khan and get another big…

I really enjoy Marquez' fights, but this is an unfortunate cash grab. Reminds me of Leonard-Duran III. Nobody cared anymore.

GBP might be thinking of JMM - KHAN or Bradley fight which is more interesting than the Morales fight because of Morales inactivity... :boxing:
