In his first fight back since losing to undefeated boxer, Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr., Juan Manuel Marquez defeated Juan “Baby Bull” Diaz by decision Saturday night on HBO Pay-per-view.
Diaz tried to change his style from the come forward pressure fighter we all knew, to a boxer, who was using movement and little to no pressure. Marquez counter punched Diaz throughout the fight and Diaz best punch was his left jab that marked up Marquez face but it was not enough to keep Marquez at bay.
Unlike their first fight, this fight wasn’t a fight of the year candidate it was more of a one sided technical beating by Juan Manuel Marquez instead of the back and forth action Marquez and Diaz had in their first meeting.
Juan Diaz is 26-years old and will now focus on his law career and passing the The Law School Admission Test (LSAT) in October but will sit down with his trainers and promoters to discuss his boxing future. During his post fight interview with Jim Lampley, Juan Manuel Marquez said that a trilogy with Manny Pacquiao is important for himself and the Mexican and Filipino boxing fans.
Juan made his plea that he wants to fight Manny Pacquiao in November if they make a decision to fight him (Bob Arum is trying to make a fight with Antonio Margarito and Manny Pacquiao for November 13 but Margarito doesn’t have a license to box in the US.)
