Marquez and Donaire on Potential Big Show on July 14th

By Rick Reeno

According to several sources who spoke to BoxingScene.com, Top Rank is considering a potential "Mexico vs. Philippines" theme for July 14th at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The date was initially reserved for a junior welterweight bout between Juan Manuel Marquez and IBF/WBA champion Lamont Peterson. Those plans were scrapped when Peterson finalized a deal to fight Amir Khan in a rematch on May 19th at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Based on the recent discussions, Marquez (53-6, 39KOs) would still be the headliner. The opponent is unknown at the moment. However, based on the event's "Mexico vs. Philippines" theme, Marquez defending his lightweight titles against Top Rank's undefeated Filipino Mercito Gesta (24-0, 12KOs) would be a possible option to explore, in my opinion.

Also being discussed for the card, Donaire (28-01, 18KOs) would make the first defense of his WBO super bantamweight title. Donaire was being positioned to return on June 16, but now the July date is more likely. The opponent being considered is Victor Terrazas (32-2-1, 18KOs), who last year defeated veterans Nehomar Cermeno and Fernando Montiel.

Another possible undercard addition is WBO flyweight champion Brian Viloria (30-3, 17KOs).

Obviously the venue would be scaled down accordingly. And, all of these ideas could change ten times over in the next couple of weeks.

[QUOTE=BxFanViento;11805319]As a PPV this is a bad card except for (potentially)Brian Viloria VS Tyson Marquez. I don't like these "VS" cards aka Mexico Vs Philippines. I would rather that they face each other because of title defenses and or mandatory…
