Perhaps one of the most anticipated fights this September is this clash between two ring bullies Joel Casamayor and Juan Manuel Marquez. Marquez will be trying to take away Casamayor’s Ring Magazine lightweight award at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada tonight, September 13, 2008 and broacasted on HBO PPV. In the Philippines, the fight will be shown live and free in ABS-CBN at 10am.

Juan Manuel Marquez is moving up in weight in challenging Casamayor, admittedly because he was chasing Manny Pacquiao. He may or may not get that opportunity for a third fight with Manny depending on his performance for this fight. Manny Pacquiao is also chasing greener pastures and bigger paydays in his fights against Oscar Dela Hoya and Ricky Hatton.

Casamayor vs Marquez is a sure hit heavybanger, but I’m not sure a lot of people is going to shed their hard -earned money over an HBO Pay-Per-View fight between these two. It would have been better if the promoters just put up this on national coverage for free, because certainly, a lot of people will be watching it again on free live streaming video. By the way, from my experience, some good soul posts the highlights and even the entire fight on Youtube afterwards.

For live updates on the fight, go to Boxing Videos.

The live feed link will be provided as soon as the fight starts. Sergio Mora vs Forrest also fights on he undercard if I’m not mistaken so bookmark this site.
