Juan Manuel Marquez is Already Below The Limit of 140

By Miguel Rivera

Juan Manuel Marquez (53-6-1, 39KOs) made good on his promise to come in light. On Saturday night he faces Ukrainian boxer Sergey Fedchenko (30-1, 13KOs) for the WBO's interim-junior welterweight title, which takes place at the new Arena Mexico in Mexico City. 

The former three division world champion wants to come in a little light to improve his speed and movement. On Thursday, after finishing up a strong workout at trainer Nacho Beristain's Romanza Gym, Marquez weighed in under the junior welterweight limit of 140-pounds. If necessary, Marquez believes that he could still make the lightweight limit of 135-pounds, where the fighter is the "super champion" of the WBO and WBA.

There's no reason for him to squeeze back down to 135. He should just focus on 140 and prepare for the inevitable rematch w/ Pac. Bigger fish to fry basically!
