In Saturday's HBO pay per view televised main event, WBO and WBA lightweight (135 pounds) titlist Juan Manuel Marquez (50-5-1, 37 KOs) will clash with Juan Diaz (35-3, 17 KOs) in a rematch of their Feburary 2009 Fight of the Year, which was won by Marquez via ninth-round knockout.
FanHouse caught up to Marquez during a recent press conference, where he called out WBO welterweight (147 pounds) champion Manny Pacquiao (51-3-2, 38 KOs) and said that Pacquiao is afraid to face him.
Marquez has lost and drawn with Pacquiao, whom he said is not as good at Floyd Mayweather (41-0-25 KOs), a unanimous decision winner over Marquez. Marquez is promoted by Golden Boy Promotions, and Pacquiao by Top Rank Promotions.
