Marquez -vs- Juarez rescheduled for November 3!

WBC Super Featherweight Champion Juan Manuel Marquez, who withdrew from his title defense originally scheduled for this Saturday due to an infection in his knuckle, is rescheduled to defend his title against Rocky Juarez on November 3. Their fight, originally scheduled for this Saturday, was scheduled to be televised on HBO Pay Per View. On November 3, however, the fight will be televised on a Showtime Championship Boxing. Thanks for tip, Boxingtalk.

How the hell does Rocky Juarez get so many title shots???? He gets a shot at Barrera in May 2006 - loses a controversial decision. Fine, he gets his rematch in September 2006 and loses decisively. All is settled. Juarez then gets a shot at IBF Featherweight Champion Robert Guerrero, on what was supposed to be the televised PPV under card to the originally scheduled Marquez/Jorge Barrios title fight. Barrios pulls out due to issues of getting into the country. Juarez automatically gets the shot at Marquez, the man who defeated the man who just defeated him TWICE.

Signing with Golden Boy, immediately following the consecutive losses to Barrera, was the best thing that ever could have happened to Juarez. I'm glad the fight was AT LEAST moved to Showtime because it certainly does NOT belong on Pay Per View. Not at all.
