By Ryan Burton has been advised that a super bantamweight clash between WBA champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (10-0) and prospect Robert Marroquin (22-1) is being negotiated for the September 15th Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. versus Sergio Martinez HBO pay-per-view televised undercard.

Rigondeaux destroyed Teon Kennedy in his most recent fight, knocking him down five times in route to a fifth round knockout on the Manny Pacquiao-Tim Bradley undercard on June 9 in Las Vegas.  Marroquin last fought on the June 16th Julio Cesar Chavez Jr-Andy Lee undercard in Texas.  He dispatched Arturo Santiago in two rounds.

However, Rigondeaux vs. Marroquin taking place on the September card is not set in stone. There is also a chance the fight could land on HBO on October 6th.

If you mean filling the void left by Mayweather, Pacman, Martinez or other bonafide superstars than I think Ward, Donaire, Gamboa, Broner, Khan, Mares and to a lesser extent Canelo/Jcc Jr are more than capable of eventually picking ...

[QUOTE=kiaba360]Can't find any of Marroquin's fights, hope he puts up a decent fight so Rigo can get some rounds in.[/QUOTE] Some people say he's tough but they also say he's wild.

From what i have seen from Marroqiun's previous fights, he is a very very tough kid but i still don't like the fight. Below is Marroquins previous fight. Robert Marroquin vs Arturo Santiago by ***********

Can't find any of Marroquin's fights, hope he puts up a decent fight so Rigo can get some rounds in.
