By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com was advised, by two sources who are close to the situation, that a deal has been reached for Floyd Mayweather Jr. to fight Juan Manuel Marquez. The proposed date [unless there is some change] is July 18 on HBO pay-per-view. The two sides have been negotiating for several weeks and the biggest roadblock was the catch-weight. The exact weight was not disclosed to me, but from I understand the two sides agreed on a weight below 145-pounds.

Mayweather has not fought since a ten round knockout of Ricky Hatton in December 2007. Marquez, considered by many as the number-two pound-for-pound fighter in the world, would rise up from the lightweight division to take the fight.

I don't want to say the "fight is 100% done" because only Marquez has signed off. Mayweather has yet to do so - or at least as I'm writing this. I've been told that Mayweather expected to sign off on the fight and an official announcement will happen in the next few days.

I like them both too. :(

Probably the 2 smartest boxers in the game.

The fight is going to be at 143.

Hopefully pbf will show ring rust and jmm can pull the upset and set up the trilogy with pacman.(wishful thinking :blush: )

Let's go JMM! If your Mexican and you go against a Mexican not named De La Hoya, then you ain't Mexican.

JMM better tag mayweather, because I don't want to sit on my couch for 1 hour watching another boring fight where Mayweather and JMM's face looked exactly the same at the start of the fight
