Rafael Marquez's fight with fellow former super-bantamweight
titlist Wilfredo Vazquez Jnr has been called off after the veteran
Mexican hurt his right hand.
The fight was scheduled to take place in Vazquez's hometown of
Bayamon, Puerto Rico on next Saturday.
"Rafael Marquez is injured and he will not fight on August 4
because he needs recovery time and we have postponed the show,"
promoter Peter Rivera of PR Best Boxing Promotions stated.
"This happens in boxing. We had the same situation in 2010 when
Marquez was going to fight against Juanma Lopez. He suffered an
injury and the fight was postponed from September to November."
