Marquez vs Peterson Could Fall on July 14th at Cowboys

by Rick Reeno

Top Rank's CEO, Bob Arum, advised BoxingScene.com that July 14th is a tentative date for a possible junior welterweight bout between IBF/WBA champion Lamont Peterson (30-1, 15KOs) and former three division beltholder Juan Manuel Marquez (53-6-1, 39KOs).

Marquez is already on board with the fight, but Peterson is still considering his options - which include a rematch with Amir Khan.

Before they collide in July, Arum would like to have the two of them take part in separate fights, possibly on March 17th, in a newly constructed venue in Mexico City.

Provided both of them win in March, Arum would place the July fight in Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

"That's my goal. That's what I would like to see, but we'll see if we can do it," Arum told BoxingScene.com.
