Many of you have heard that the July 11th bout between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Juan Manual Marquez was cancelled due to a Mayweather rib injury. What many of you don’t know is that sources have told me that the injury is due to slow ticket sales and if interest in the fight doesn’t increase the fight may be cancelled altogether.
The current plan is to have the fight in September during Mexican Independence weekend, but if the “injury” doesn’t heal the fight will be cancelled and “Pretty Boy” Floyd will have to find a new opponent.
The issue seems to be that nobody thinks Marquez can win the fight even though he is considered the #2 active fighter in the world. The biggest reason for this is weight. Marquez has never fought above 135 lbs, while Floyd has fought as high as 154 lbs. Maybe Floyd needs to pick on somebody his own size.
