Rigondeaux vs Marroquin in Play For Chavez-Martinez

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com 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.
