Marquez-Diaz Rematch is Imminent

Juan Manuel Marquez and Juan Diaz may be fighting again in July.

According to ESPN's Dan Rafael, Golden Boy CEO has stated that they are working on a rematch between Juan Manuel Marquez and Juan Diaz.  The match would likely be at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and televised on HBO pay-per-view.

This should be good news for boxing fans, as the first match up between the two was the 2009 fight of the year by general consensus, as well as Bad Left Hook's 2009 Fight of the Year.

Since the initial fight, the two have seen their stocks fall somewhat. Marquez moved all the way up to welterweight and lost a lopsided decision to Floyd Mayweather, Jr., who was coming out of retirement. Diaz moved up a few pounds to fight Paulie Malignaggi twice at a catchweight.  While he officially won their first bout, most thought that Malignaggi had won, and Malignaggi came away with a convincing decision in the second. 

For the undercard, Golden Boy is also reportedly working on a match between Winky Wright and Sergio Mora, assuming Mora comes out of his upcoming fight against Calvin Green unscathed.
