Mayweather Purse: propagandists say $ 15 million
No info provided for Marquez.

Fight weight: 147 lbs according to Ring Magazine
144 give or take according to Golden Boy Promotions

Who are we going to believe?
According to Michael Rosenthal of the Ring, this is a welterweight fight meaning Mayweather can reach the 147 lb limit further decreasing Marquez's chance of winning. Juan Manuel Marquez is the present lightweight king (135). Golden Boy Promotions is slowly chipping away its credibility.

Floyd Mayweather used to make fun of Juan Manuel Marquez's size in the earlier press conferences but after a tremendous amount of criticism received ("Yup Marquez is small then why fight him?") - he stopped and instead began praising the Mexican. I feel like Juan Manuel Marquez is fighting with one hand tied up. Yes, Juan Manuel Marquez is a tough and excellent boxer but this is too much.

Warning: Check local listings. Schedules and other information might change without prior notice. Be smart recheck the details.

Update: 9- 20 - 09

Marquez will earn $ 2,000,000 for fighting Mayweather including the $ 600,000 penalty "Money" incurred for being three pounds overweight.

Mayweather's net purse is estimated to be at $ 5,000,000 according to newspaper reports.
