Marquez vs. Diaz II Undercard Announcement Conference Call

by on Jul.02, 2010, under Boxing News, Press Releases

Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions:          

Before we talk about the undercard, I just want to make another quick announcement.  This Friday, July 2 there is going to be a special edition of Sólo Boxeo Tecate on Telefutura, which is going to go inside Marquez vs. Diaz II.  It’s going to be a 90-minute special, a deep look into the first fight and an analysis by some very well-known fighters, such as Israel Vasquez and others are going to be talking about the first fight.  Marquez and Diaz are going to be on talking about that first fight and what kind of adjustments they have to make for the second fight and they’re going to be showing never before seen camp footage, how these two guys are preparing.  So, in a way, it’s almost like a 24/7 put into one 90-minute show and that’s going to be a special this coming Friday, July 2, which is going to be on Telefutura.  So, please make sure you watch out for that.

When we announced Marquez and Diaz II, the rematch of the fight of the year of last year at the Media Center at the MGM Grand when we did the Mayweather and Mosley fight, many of you were excited about this fight and fight fans were asking for a rematch.  But the promise that I made there in front of all you media members was that we were going to put together an undercard, which is worthy of the fight of the year, basically a card which will include fights where each one of those could be featured on an HBO or on a Showtime as a standalone fight on the Boxing After Dark or a Showtime fight.
