    Default Juan Manuel Marquez vs Erik Morales Is Dead

    Juan Manuel Marquez vs Erik Morales Is Dead!!! The fight should have never been thought about IMO. Maybe 5 - 7 years ago but not in 2011.
    Who should JMM fight?

    It's not dead JMM is just asking for more money. He was also offered to fight Khan at 140 or Berto at 147. I personally would choose Khan, but we all know he wont accept the fight unless he gets some ridiculous demands.

    Personally I find this to be great news, like the post above me said.... 5 to 7 years ago would have been okay but now its just ridiculous.
    If you think you can......you can, if you think you can't .......you're right!

    Thank goodness...

    JMM needs to go after that 4th title before it's too late.

    I'd rather see Marquez - Khan than Marquez - Morales or Marquez - Berto, but I think Amir is just too big and too fast for him at this point.

    Not so dead! Marquez vs Khan will never happen. They'd could never agree on a purse split.

    WBA/WBO lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez has cleared the air about a possible fight with Erik Morales on April 9 in Las Vegas. This past Thursday, Marquez met with his promoters, Golden Boy Promotions, but the money presented to face Morales was not what he expected. They also offered championships fights against WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto and WBA junior welterweight champ Amir Khan. Golden Boy will present Marquez with a new offer to face Morales on Tuesday.


    "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.

    While i don't like the fight with Morrales, i don't really like a fight with Berto either. I think Berto is a big 147, and would be much bigger than JMM come fight night. Khan wouldn't be a bad fight, i'd like to see that.

    Agreed.

    I think Marquez could outbox Khan.

    And Khan is a terriffic boxer. Just doesn't have a terriffic chin.

    Khan does have a decent chin and it is not as if JMM is a huge puncher himself, especially at the higher weight.

    JMM should really not go to welter but is desperate to fight Pac Man so may have to go to the higher weight sooner rather than later.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    I was thinking about how bad a fight this was again last night. Can't believe they were going to try pass off Marquez Morales really. Morales is dreaming. This I am very pleased about.

    Moving on..........

    Unlike Top Rank, the GBP can't turn their shit to gold.

    Marquez is looking for immediate gratification with regards to the monetary reward, that is understandable. But he should look further ahead. A win against Khan or Berto will put him in the forefront of the line against Pacquiao, and there will be no excuse for Manny to pass him over after those wins. It will also increase JMM's stock for his next fight. If he still goes ahead with the Morales fight, then he hasn't shown that he is deserving to face Manny in the next bout.
