Mayweather-Marquez official for September 19

Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Juan Manuel Marquez will now meet on September 19. (via assets.espn.go.com)

According to a press release, the fight between the returning Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Juan Manuel Marquez has been officially rescheduled and will now take place on September 19, as had been the rumor since Mayweather pulled out of the Juy 18 date with a rib injury.

The fight will now come nearly exactly two months before the proposed Manny Pacquiao-Miguel Cotto showdown (Nov. 14) and mean that boxing fans looking for big fights will be expected to buy two major shows fairly close together. Still, for all the flak pay-per-view has gotten in boxing, UFC runs a major PPV show about once a month and they do well. The real question is whether or not the fights are worth the money. In the case of Pacquiao-Cotto and Mayweather-Marquez, there really aren't any other options to cover the fighters' purses. These are PPV fights. This one will be going for $49.95 (not in HD) if you were wondering.

There's really little else to say about the fight at this point. The rescheduling was expected, the date was what had been rumored, and the fight goes on as it was before. Hopefully a better featured undercard fight than Zab Judah-Matthew Hatton can be added, and with the talks of Edwin Valero-Joel Casamayor starting, that seems like something we can reasonably hope for this time around.
