Marroquin to battle Lopez in Chavez – Martinez undercard
After the legal situation that forced WBA Super Bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux out of a potential champions showdown on on September 15th, once-beaten Robert Marroquin will now face Alejandro Lopez as part of the Julio Cesar Chavez – Sergio Martinez Pay Per View card on that date according to San Rafael of espn.com
“Lopez was scheduled to fight in a couple of weeks, so he’s been training for at least six weeks,” Moretti said. “If he’s anything like the kid that showed up against Teon Kennedy, this ought to be a heck of a fight.
“Top Rank respects the court’s decision but we are extremely disappointed that his manager, his attorney (Pat English) and co-promoter (Caribe Promotions) would try and stop a kid from fighting when he wants to fight on Sept. 15 and agreed to pay these parties their agreed upon shares,” Moretti said. “It makes no sense and is completely unjust — but to be expected when inexperienced people let there egos get in the way of a fighter’s development.”
