There had been reports that negotiations for the proposed superfight that'll feature former pound-for-pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. in his comeback fight against Lightweight king and Mexican great Juan Manuel Marquez had already been finalized.

There are rumors that a September date had already been set but both camps still kept quiet.

This would be a Dream fight in any respect. The Mayweather-Marquez duel will shake up the boxing world whom ever the victor may be.

It would showcased two of the best boxing tacticians of the recent era in a masterful display of both sweet science artistry and colorful pageantry.

Mayweather, now on a 16-month lay-off (and still counting) is itching to get back in the ring to permanently cement his legacy as one of the best fighters of all time and to reclaim the throne of boxing supremacy, he once relinquished.

On the other hand, Marquez having abysmal failure in getting a third crack at four-division world champion and pound for pound king Manny Pacquiao might land on the bigger jackpot.

He might as well establish himself as the best fighter to ever come out of Mexico surpassing the great Julio Cesar Chavez.

Marquez equipped with his precise tactics and stunning counterpunches is out to prove that he is the best out in the horizon.

While the defensive wizard Mayweather furnished with his lightning-speed reflexes is ready to once again ascend to the boxing heavens.

A truly enticing fight that'll stir a lot of interest.

A Dream fight for boxing coaches and strategists alike.

Alas! Textbook Perfection.
