Mayweather-Marquez undercard finalized

The televised undercard for Saturday night's Mayweather-Marquez card is finally solidified and 100% good to go, with no Zab Judah-style bail-outs likely from anyone on the card.

The main co-feature remains the anticipated rematch between Chris John and Rocky Juarez for John's 126-pound title. The two fought to a controversial draw in February, a bout most fans felt John won, with Juarez benefiting from fighting in his hometown of Houston. They meet on neutral ground on Saturday.

Michael Katsidis and Vicente Escobedo will still duke it out for an interim lightweight title, too, which I maintain is most likely to win Fight of the Night when all is said and done. Both are hungry fighters that really need the win to advance. The win would be the best of either guy's career.

Just bumped up to the televised card is the featherweight 10-rounder between Cornelius Lock and Orlando Cruz, a decision made by Richard Schaefer after other avenues were explored, according to Dan Rafael. Lock (18-4-1, 11 KO) is a Mayweather fighter who badly lost to Antonio Escalante (100-88, 100-88, 98-90) in his last fight. He's been stopped by both Mario Santiago and Cristobal Cruz in the past, and was also TKO'd in his professional debut back in 2000. Cruz (16-0-1, 7 KO) drilled Leonilo Miranda on a January Shobox in his last fight. If you're thinking this isn't the best fight, it's not, but remember that it's short notice, they tried, and for once, it's hard to jump on the back of the promoters over a PPV undercard.

Bad Left Hook will have a much deeper look at these fights tomorrow.
