According to manager/trainer Nacho Beristain, Golden Boy Promotions is trying to put together a fight between Juan Manuel Marquez and Ricky Hatton in Manchester. There are several options being discussed for Marquez, with Hatton at the top of the list. Marquez could also defend his WBA/WBO lightweight titles against mandatory Michael Katsidis.
"There is nothing concrete. Right now there are several potential fights being discussed for Juan Manuel, and one of them is against Hatton in Manchester," said Nacho, speaking to ESTO from the Romanza Gym in Mexico.
Two weeks ago Marquez was dominated by Floyd Mayweather Jr. for a twelve round decision loss. Nacho says Marquez will take a vacation for the rest of the year and come back strong in 2010. Hatton doesn't want to discuss a comeback at the moment. By time 2010 comes around, Hatton may be ready to fight and Marquez will be waiting.
"What Juan Manuel wants to do at the moment is forget about boxing. He had an intense year from September of 2008 until now, having three strong fights, for which he worked hard. Against Joel Casamayor, who he knocked out in eleven rounds, Juan Diaz, who he knocked out in nine, and now Mayweather," said Nacho.
