Default Marquez is expected to sign a fight with Morales corpse tomorrow...

...which would be a blight on his career if you ask me

The offer they made to fight with Morales was not what I expected, but I'm not ruling out the fight. They said they were not sure how the fight would sell. I expect a new offer on Tuesday. I was offered a fight with Morales (51-6, 35 KO's), with [Amir] Khan (24-1, 17 KO) at 140 pounds and Berto (27-0, 21 KOs) at welterweight for the title of the World Boxing Council. I will talk with [manager/trainer] Nacho [Beristain] to see what is best," Marquez told Sal Rodriguez.If Golden Boy offers Marquez the correct amount of money, he will accept the fight with Morales on Tuesday.

I think I deserve a good purse, and we will continue to negotiate, and on Tuesday I hope to report my next fight," Marquez said.

The fight will make money, mexican american's will buy the fight and it will do massive tv numbers in mexico. I don't really like the fight but it will make money.

Morales is in a real bad way IMO. I saw his last fight and he struggled against a much smaller guy also past his best.

JMM is 37yrs old so it's not like he's at his best mid to late 20's snacking on a carcus. Cunt wants a pay day who are we to judge?

Not a great fight which i expect Marquez to dominate. Morales looked well shot in his last outing. The fight will draw good numbers in the Mexican American community. Wonder why hbo would be willing to put this under their ppv banner? Oh thats right its promoted by golden boy.

This is shit. Seriously boxing is in the worst state since I have been following it. The best match-ups are not being made, there is mismatches galore and there are seemingly an endless about of "world titles" on offer.

Well in better news, David Haye is looking at taking on Mormeck. War Haye!

Oh plus we had the stunning Holyfield fight on the weekend!

That's actually a good fight. Better than Chagaev.

Disapointing to read at the 'Scene' that the mooted Katsidis vs. Guerrero fight won't be on this card now either.

Apparently there was bugger all money left in the pot after JMM took his tidy $3m and Morales his $1m (by geez, you have to wonder where Erik's money went don't you considering he still has to fight?)

I'm disapointed for Mick. I think Guerrero's a great fight for him to return to action with. I hope it get's made for him soon and with some good coin.

Disappointing i agree.
GBP will have money to blow on some other HBO card in the coming months so hopefully Katsidis will get a go then.

The fight was never going to happen from what I was told. Interesting to see where Michael goes from here.

I agree, it's a shame Erik is still fighting but I think a fair chunk of it went up his nose! War The Fighting Pride of Tijuana!
