Mayweather vs. Marquez is Close To a Done Deal

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com was advised, by two sources who are close to the situation, that a deal has been reached for Floyd Mayweather Jr. to fight Juan Manuel Marquez. The proposed date [unless there is some change] is July 18 on HBO pay-per-view. The two sides have been negotiating for several weeks and the biggest roadblock was the catch-weight. The exact weight was not disclosed to me, but from what I understand the two sides agreed on a weight below 145-pounds.

Mayweather has not fought since a ten round knockout of Ricky Hatton in December 2007. Marquez, considered by many as the number-two pound-for-pound fighter in the world, would rise up from the lightweight division to take the fight.

I don't want to say the "fight is 100% done" because only Marquez has signed off. Mayweather has yet to do so - or at least as I'm writing this. I've been told that Mayweather expected to sign off on the fight and an official announcement will happen in the next few days.

[QUOTE=K-Nan]He is bigger but he doesn't ever impose his size in fights. He isn't one of those kind of fighters who imposes his physicality. And the size difference isn't on the level of a DLH-Pacquiao kind of fight. It's much more negligible.[/QUOTE] Actually, he does. If he is as big or b...
