Mayweather vs. Marquez Fight


By Eric Thomas: According to the latest boxing news, Floyd Mayweather Jr. (39-0, 25 KOs) may be coming out of retirement for a September bout against boxing’s new number #1 Pound-for-pound star lightweight Juan Manuel Marquez (50-4-1, 37 KOs), who recently stopped Juan Diaz in the 9th round this past weekend at the Toyota Center, in Houston, Texas. Marquez, 35, called out Mayweather after the fight with Diaz on Saturday, saying that he’d like to move up to welterweight to face him there. Oddly enough, Marquez said little about a third fight with Manny Pacquiao, other than to say that he’s going after Mayweather because “Pacquiao doesn’t want to fight me.” In that, it looks as if Marquez speaks the truth because since losing a controversial 12-round split decision to Pacquiao in March 2008, Manny hasn’t shown any interested in fighting him again, instead going after the soft Oscar De La Hoya and Ricky Hatton.Mayweather reportedly wants to return to the ring by the end of the year and what better way to do it than to face a much smaller Marquez instead of a bigger, arguably more dangerous fighter like Miguel Cotto. Even against a smaller fighter like Marquez, Mayweather would be faced with a very difficult fight because Marquez specializes in counter punching much in the same way that Mayweahther does and he will no doubt make Mayweather pay for any shots he wants to land in the fight.cwship9buk
