Default Looks like Marquez-Diaz II is going to happen

At lightweight which means Katsidis-Mitchell won't be for the full title.
Quote:
A deal for lightweight champ Juan Manuel Marquez and Juan Diaz to meet in a rematch of the 2009 fight of the year is imminent, Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer told ESPN.com on Thursday.


Schaefer said the fight for Marquez's title is being planned for July 10 as the main event of an HBO PPV card. He said it would "probably" take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.


"It's very close," Schaefer said. "We are getting everything signed, but we have agreed on terms." Willie Savannah, Diaz's manager, told ESPN.com that he had received the proposal from Golden Boy and that their side wants the fight.


"It looks like that is what will happen," Savannah said. "I told them we would like to have the rematch."

Will it be anywhere near as good as the first fight??

July 10 is also a day before the World Cup final

Yeah the 1st fight was a all out Mexican war, a rematch at 135 where both fighters are at their best should be great.

To bad Kevin is not getting his shot, ****** must be buged.

If Marquez can fight Diaz, Why cant he fight Khan?
Khan? Fight a faded Mexican legend whose moving up in weight? Amir would never agree to such an underhanded move on his promoter's part.
