Juan Manuel Márquez will return to the ring on July 19
The return to the ring of Mexican Juan Manuel Márquez, world champion in the feather, super feather, light and super light divisions, has a tentative date of July 29 and the venue with the best possibilities is the Arena Ciudad de México in this capital, he explained today promoter Fernando Beltrán.
Beltrán, who has worked with Márquez in recent years, announced that the possible rival is of Irish origin and that he is also working on the fight against Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto.
“We are doing everything possible so that the fight is on July 29 and the fight with Cotto is also being sought, that is an open secret,” Beltrán said at a press conference.
“We are talking about an Irishman, he is a strong fighter and it will be a worthy fight because Juan Manuel intends to fight Cotto,” he added.
Regarding the fight against the Puerto Rican, the promoter anticipated “it will surely be December because in November the fight between the American Floyd Mayweather and the Irish Conor McGregor will be heard.”
Beltrán, he explained, has not had the opportunity to complete his return to the ring with Márquez “but surely his return will take place in July or August and we are thinking of Mexico City.”
The fight can be in the Arena Ciudad de México or in the capital’s Zócalo although it does not necessarily have to be in the capital and could take place in Tijuana or Cancun and the weight will be agreed above the super light weight between 135 and 140 pounds, one 61 , 2 and 63.5 kilos.
Marquez, 43, has not fought since May 17, 2014, when he beat American Mike Alvarado.
The 43-year-old fighter returned to the training room two months ago and his body has responded to the demand and will measure it in a preparation fight.
Márquez has accumulated 56 wins in his career, 40 before the limit, seven losses and a draw. EFE
