I doubt he will beat Marquez. I know JMM isn't the msot comfortable at 140, but it's not a huge step up in weight and he will likely retain a large portion of his speed and power from 135. Morales seemes weight drained before the Limond fight, and was getting outboxed by Limond for portions of that fight. As we know, Limond isn't a particularly good fighter so Marquez would be a big step up in class for Morales post-comeback. In my opinion, he is far too past it to beat JMM, and Morales would get comfortably decisioned. It is likely this fight will happen, but it could hinge on wether Marquez can get past Katsidis.
