Number One vs Numero Uno

The promotional and self proclaimed best boxers in the world will fight on July 18, 2009. Floyd Mayweather Jr., the (Number One), zero-loss former pound for pound best and Juan Manuel Marquez (Numero Uno), the 2nd pound for pound boxer to Manny Pacquiao, will dance together in Las Vegas come July 18. Number One vs Numero Uno will be the most controversial fight of this year.

This will be the come back fight of Floyd Mayweather Jr. after two years of hibernating, and Juan Manuel Marquez biggest fight in his career. Floyd Mayweather Jr. ducked two of the best welterweight boxers; Shane Mosley and Miguel Cotto, before he accepted the fight with Juan Marquez. Shane Mosley has been calling out his name after he defeated Antonio Margarito. If you could still remember, Floyd Mayweather Jr. refused to fight Margarito, instead he announced his retirement.

Juan Manuel Marquez is a great fighter, his recent demolition of Juan Diaz just proved his age is not a factor to become one of the best boxers in the world. JMM fought two times with the current pound for pound king Manny Pacquiao, although some critics said Juan Manuel Marquez won the last fight, many have agreed that Manny Pacquiao won the fight. Also, do not forget that JMM was knocked down 3 times on their first bout and 1 time on their last.



"I'm always in a no-win situation. Every time I fight a guy they say the guy is over the hill or I'm too big or I was too fast. They are always going to have an excuse. Marquez is a good fighter. To beat a fighter like that it takes hard work, dedication and preparation and belief in a good team, and I have a great team." - Not-so-famous statements of Mayweather Jr.


Floyd Mayweather Jr. is made famous by his arrogant remarks, but Manny Pacquiao's historical win over Oscar Dela Hoya and Ricky Hatton simply speak for itself. Number One vs Numero Uno is just a dream fight of Oscar Dela Hoya's promotion.
