Notes

  • Juan Manuel Marquez came in ranked as the # 2 fighter pound-for-pound and the # 1 lightweight in the world by The Ring Magazine. Juan Diaz came in as the # 2 lightweight in the world by the same publication.
  • In the post-fight interview with HBO's Max Kellerman, Marquez said that he would like to fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. since, his first choice, Manny Pacquiao said he was not interested in a third meeting. Either way, Marquez said he would likely move up in weight class for his next fight.
  • Marquez defends his Ring Magazine Lightweight World Title.
