Boxing career information

Juan Manuel Márquez Méndez (born August 23, 1973) is a Mexican professional boxer and the former WBO light-welterweight champion. He is the 3rd Mexican-born boxer (after Erik Morales and Jorge Arce) to become a four-division world champion, winning seven world titles in four different boxing weight classes.[1]

Ring Magazine currently ranks Márquez as the number three pound-for-pound boxer in the world and number one in the junior welterweight division.[2] He is considered by analysts to be among the greatest Mexican boxers of all-time.[3]

Personal life[edit | edit source]

Juan Manuel was born in Mexico City, Distrito Federal, Mexico. He is the brother of Rafael Márquez, a former world champion in the bantamweight and super bantamweight divisions. They're both trained under Ignacio Beristain and Assistant Toshi Nakajima. At one time, the two were listed in Ring Magazine's top ten pound-for-pound list. They are one of four sets of Mexican brothers to hold world titles. Márquez and his wife, Erika,[4] have two sons and a daughter.[5]

Amateur career[edit | edit source]

Marquez had an amateur record of 44-2 (32ko)

Professional career[edit | edit source]

Featherweight[edit | edit source]

He made his professional boxing debut at age 19 on May 29, 1993, losing via disqualification to Javier Duran. Márquez remained undefeated for six years, compiling a 29–1 record that included wins against future champions Agapito Sanchez, Julio Gervacio and Alfred Kotey. In 1997, Márquez won the WBO NABO Featherweight title, which he defended seven times. During this time, he was referred to as the "best fighter without a world title."[6] Márquez was WBO Featherweight Champion Naseem Hamed's mandatory challenger for 22 straight months. However, the WBO allowed Hamed to schedule other fights instead.[7][8]

Marquez vs. Norwood[edit | edit source]

In 1999, Marquez faced Freddie Norwood for the WBA Featherweight title instead. Márquez was knocked down in the second round. In the 8th round, Norwood's glove touched the canvas after an exchange. However, it was not ruled a knock down by the referee who was standing opposite to the action. In the 9th round, Márquez scored a knockdown after a two punch combination. Marquez lost via controversial unanimous decision.[9] HBO Punchstat had Norwood landing 73 out of 290 punches thrown to Marquez's 89 of 444.

On November 20, 1999, Márquez faced Remigio Molina and defeated him in eight rounds. In 2000, he defeated former champion Daniel Jimenez and five fights later, he defeated future champion Robbie Peden in ten rounds and captured the NABF & USBA Featherweight titles.

Márquez received his second bout for a world title on January 2, 2003 when he defeated former four-time Featherweight Champion Manuel Medina and captured the vacant IBF Featherweight title. In the 2nd round, Marquez connected with a three-punch combination that floored Medina. The fight was stopped in the 7th round after Marquez knocked Medina down for a second time.

He then defeated Derrick Gainer later in the year in a unification bout to win the WBA Featherweight title and become the WBA (Super) Champion.

Marquez vs. Pacquiao I[edit | edit source]

In May 2004, Márquez fought Lineal & The Ring Featherweight Champion Manny Pacquiao in a bout where Márquez was knocked down three times in the 1st round. Marquez outboxed Pacquiao for the remainder of the bout which was ended in a controversial, split-decision draw.

On September 18, 2004, Márquez defeated future champion Orlando Salido. In 2005, Márquez was stripped of his WBA and IBF Featherweight titles for his inability to defend them against various boxers after potential bouts failed to draw a bid.[10]

Marquez vs. John[edit | edit source]

In 2006, Márquez attempted to regain a title, coming up short in a unanimous decision loss to undefeated Indonesian boxer Chris John in Indonesia for the WBA Featherweight Championship title. The loss led to the Ring Magazine's removal of Márquez from its pound-for-pound top 10 list.

In late 2006, Márquez captured the Interim WBO Featherweight title by defeating Thai boxer Terdsak Jandaeng. He defended it against Filipino boxer Jimrex Jaca with a nine round knockout in Hidalgo, Texas. Márquez was promoted to world champion status in December 2006 when previous champion Scott Harrison vacated the title.[11] Márquez vacated the Featherweight title the following year to challenge WBC Super Featherweight Champion Marco Antonio Barrera.

Super Featherweight[edit | edit source]

Marquez vs. Barrera[edit | edit source]

On March 17, 2007, Márquez became the WBC Super Featherweight Champion by defeating Barrera in Las Vegas via unanimous decision,[12] by the official scores of 116–111, 116–111 and 118–109. Márquez's first defense of his title was to be held on September 15, 2007 against Argentinian boxer Jorge Rodrigo Barrios. However, Barrios withdrew from the bout due to injury, prompting American boxer Rocky Juárez to challenge Márquez for the title on November 3, 2007 in a losing effort.

Marquez vs. Pacquiao II[edit | edit source]

On November 29, 2007, Márquez announced that he would defend his title in a rematch with Pacquiao. On March 15, 2008, Márquez lost his Super Featherweight title to Pacquiao via split decision. Márquez suffered a knockdown in the third round that proved to be the difference, as the remaining rounds were scored dead even. Compubox scoring had Márquez landing 42 of 201 (21%) jabs to Pacquiao's 43 of 314 (14%) and landing 130 of 310 (42%) power punches to Pacquiao's 114 of 305 (37%).[13] Richard Schaefer, Golden Boy Promotions CEO, offered a $6 million guarantee to Pacquiao for a rematch. Pacquiao's promoter, Bob Arum, said, “I’m not saying they’ll never fight again, but you have to let it bake for a while.” Pacquiao said: "I don't think so, this business is over" as he planned to move up to the lightweight division.[14]

Lightweight[edit | edit source]

Marquez vs. Casamayor[edit | edit source]

Juan Manuel Marquez vs. Joel Casamayor

Márquez moved up to the lightweight division in order to fight The Ring Lightweight Champion Joel Casamayor on the weekend leading up to Mexican Independence Day at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada. On September 13, 2008, he defeated Casamayor in the 11th round after two knockdowns and captured his sixth world title in three different weight classes. In the first four rounds of the bout, Márquez continually walked into counter punches from Casamayor. It took Márquez until the fifth round to be able to find the range with his right hand. By the fifth round, a cut over Casamayor's right eye was opened from a clash of heads. Rounds five, six, seven and eight were rounds where Márquez landed straight punches from the outside, but he was also struck by Casamayor whenever he lunged forward. Two minutes into the eleventh round, Casamayor was knocked down by a right punch as he pulled away from an intense exchange. Casamayor was able to get on his feet, but it was clear he was still shakey from the knockdown. As soon as the action was allowed to resume, Márquez went in for the kill as he let his punches go in furious combination. Casamayor punched back, but he was knocked down again with about 7 seconds left in the round. Referee Tony Weeks stepped in the bout and stopped the fight as he deemed Casamyor unable to continue. The official judges had the fight scored 95–95, 95–95 and 97–93 for Márquez before the 11th round knockout.[15] After the win, The Ring magazine ranked Márquez second on its pound for pound list and rated him the number one boxer in the lightweight division.[16]

Marquez vs. Diaz I[edit | edit source]

Juan Manuel Marquez vs. Juan Diaz

On February 28, 2009, Márquez defeated former WBA, WBO & IBF Lightweight Champion Juan Díaz by knockout. Díaz controlled the fight early in the bout as the two boxers exchanged punches. Díaz opened a cut above Márquez's right eye in the fifth round and looked to control the bout, but Márquez responded by opening a gash above Díaz's right eye and stunning him with a left hook before the end of the eighth round. Márquez landed two hard rights to Díaz's face in a three-punch combination that knocked Díaz down with 35 seconds remaining in the ninth round. Díaz rose, but seconds later, Márquez followed with a right uppercut to the chin that knocked Díaz down for a second time. Referee Rafael Ramos waved an end to the fight after two minutes and 40 seconds of the ninth round. With the victory, Márquez defended his The Ring Lightweight title and claimed the vacant WBO and vacant WBA (Super) Lightweight titles.[17] This fight was named "Fight of the Year" for 2009 by ESPN.com.[18] After the fight, Márquez expressed an interest in fighting Floyd Mayweather Jr..

Welterweight[edit | edit source]

Marquez vs. Mayweather[edit | edit source]

Number One/Número Uno

Márquez moved up to the welterweight division and fought undefeated and number one pound for pound champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.. The fight was scheduled to take place at 144 lbs[19] on July 18, 2009 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena; but was postponed due to a rib injury sustained by Mayweather. The bout was rescheduled and held on September 19, 2009.[20] During the official weigh in for their 144 lb bout, Márquez weighed in at 142 lbs and Mayweather weighed in at 146 lbs, thereby incurring a financial penalty as he was 2 pounds over the catchweight. Although, it was later found out that both parties had agreed just before the weigh-in to allow Mayweather fight over the catchweight with Mayweather paying additional $600,000 due to arriving two pounds over the 144 lbs weight limit. Mayweather controlled the action in the fight. Marquez struggled to conquer Mayweather's defense and could not get out of the way of his counter punches. Marquez landed only 19% of his punches according to Compubox punch stats. Mayweather knocked Márquez down in the 2nd round. Mayweather won the fight by unanimous decision.

This was the fifth non-heavyweight fight in boxing history to sell more than one million pay-per-views, with the official HBO numbers totaling about $52 million. It was also the first fight to sell more than one million PPVs without featuring Oscar De La Hoya. Two months later, Manny Pacquiao vs. Miguel Cotto would sell 1.25 million PPVs.[21]

Return to Lightweight[edit | edit source]

Marquez vs. Diaz II[edit | edit source]

Juan Manuel Márquez vs. Juan Díaz II

When asked upon his return to the lightweight division, Márquez said: "I came back to lightweight because at welterweight I lost a lot of speed."[22]

Márquez then began negotiations for a rematch with Juan Díaz. Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer said the fight for Márquez's title was being planned for July 10 as the main event of an HBO PPV card. He said it would "probably" take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.[23] After his comeback in 2010, fellow Mexican boxer Erik Morales said he would like to fight Márquez.[24] Morales returned two divisions higher in 2010, as a welterweight. However, Márquez has also stated that he would be interested in a fight with Ricky Hatton.[25]

The Márquez-Díaz rematch took place on July 31, 2010 at the Mandalay Bay. Márquez's titles were also at stake.[22] Prior to the bout, the WBO ordered the Márquez-Díaz winner to fight mandatory challenger Michael Katsidis.[26][27] Márquez won the fight via unanimous decision by the official scores of 117–111, 116–112 and 118–110. After the Díaz rematch, Márquez stated that he was interested in pursuing a third fight with Manny Pacquiao.[28][29] There was also a possibility of him moving up to light welterweight to face any of the titleholders at the time: Timothy Bradley, Devon Alexander or Amir Khan, all of whom were fighting on HBO.[30]

Marquez vs. Katsidis[edit | edit source]

Juan Manuel Márquez vs Michael Katsidis

A few weeks after the Juan Díaz fight, Golden Boy Promotions officially announced that Márquez would defend his lightweight titles against mandatory challenger, WBO Interim Champion Michael Katsidis, on November 27, 2010 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and that the bout would be televised live on HBO Championship Boxing.[31][32] During the official weigh in for their 135 lb bout, Márquez came in at 134 pounds, while Katsidis came in on the limit of 135 pounds.[33] Despite being knocked down in the third round, Márquez came back and defeated Katsidis by a ninth round TKO to retain the lightweight belts.[34] At the time of the stoppage, the Mexican boxer was ahead on all the scorecards by 77–74, 78–74 and 76–75. During the post fight interview, he once again expressed his interest in a third fight with Manny Pacquiao.

Márquez holds the distinction of being the oldest champion in the history of the lightweight division.[35] On January 4, the WBA no longer recognized Márquez as their Super Champion due to going 18 months without fighting a mandatory challenger as required by the organization’s rules.[36] Fernando Beltrán of Zanfer Promotions stated that the WBA's decision has no validity and that he would immediately send them a letter,[37] since the deadline of May 2012 for the mandatory defense has not expired,[38] and Márquez paid sanctioning fees to the WBA even for the last few non-lightweight fights.[39] On January 26, Marquez was stripped of his WBO title, as he was considered to be moving up to the welterweight division. The WBO promoted Interim titleholder Ricky Burns to full champion status.[40] The Ring magazine stripped of him of their championship on April 17.[41]

Light Welterweight[edit | edit source]

Márquez moved up to light welterweight division to fight Likar Ramos on July 16, 2011 at Mexico. It was considered a tune-up fight before his third battle with Manny Pacquiao. The fight only lasted one round with Marquez winning by technical knockout.

Return to Welterweight[edit | edit source]

Marquez vs. Pacquiao III[edit | edit source]

Juan Manuel Márquez vs. Manny Pacquiao III

Pacquiao's promoter Bob Arum stated that a third meeting with Márquez could happen in November 2011, providing Pacquiao defeated his next opponent Shane Mosley on May 7.[42] On May 10, Márquez accepted an offer from Top Rank to fight Pacquiao for his WBO Welterweight title at a catchweight of 144 pounds.[43] On May 18, Márquez signed the deal to fight Pacquiao for the third time on November 12 at Las Vegas.

On November 12, Márquez lost to Pacquiao via controversial majority decision. Upon the results being announced, the crowd reaction was largely negative with many continuing to boo as Pacquiao spoke with Max Kellerman.[44] Tim Smith of New York's Daily News wrote that Márquez "was robbed of a decision by judges who were either blind or corrupt."[45] Ringside punch stats showed Pacquiao landing more strikes, 167 to 138, and landing more power punches, 117 to 100.[46] Michael Woods of ESPN stated that Marquez was not robbed noting the Compubox stats, all of which favored Pacquiao.[47]

On November 15, Márquez announced that he wanted to fight Pacquiao again for the fourth time.[48]

Aside from Pacquiao, Márquez wants to return to the light welterweight division for his fourth division title against WBO titlist Timothy Bradley.[49] He also said that he is not interested in fighting Brandon Rios and Erik Morales.[50]

Return to Light Welterweight[edit | edit source]

Marquez vs. Fedchenko[edit | edit source]

On April 14, 2012, Marquez defeated Ukrainian contender Serhiy Fedchenko via unanimous decision to capture the Interim WBO Light Welterweight title. A clear margin by scores of: 119-109, 118-110, 118-110. The WBO has since updated him to full status WBO Champion.

Third return to Welterweight[edit | edit source]

Marquez vs. Pacquiao IV[edit | edit source]

Marquez fought Manny Pacquiao on December 8, 2012. The fight was for the WBO's "Champion of the Decade" belt.[51] Marquez knocked down Pacquiao in the 3rd round with a looping right hook. In round 5, Pacquiao returned the favor, knocking down Marquez. Pacquiao went on the offensive in the 6th round. However, as Pacquiao continued the dominating offensive, with just 1 second left in the 6th round, Marquez countered Pacquiao's double jab with a ducking right cross sending Pacquiao face first to the canvas, resulting in a knockout. Pacquiao, who had not been knocked out in over 13 years since his loss to Medgeon Singsurat in 1999, remained unconscious for several seconds.[52] This was named "International Fight of the Year" by the British website BoxRec. Marquez was also named "International Fighter of the Year" by the same publication.[53]
