  • This is the second mandatory fight for Chris John.
  • The IBF decided to strip JM Maruqez's IBF belt, after no promoter bid for the IBF mandatory title fight Marquez vs Farakorb Rakkietgym.
  • The IBF's decision influenced the WBA to revoke Marquez's status as the super champion, and soon instructing John as the regular champion to fight Marquez in a mandatory bout. MTM Promotions and Muhammad Arsyad won the purse bid in September 2005.
  • March 4, 2006 becomes the final date of the fight after twice postponments of the initial schedules in December 2005 and February 2006 due to John's ankle ligament injury.
