This is HUGE news. Floyd has announced that he will end his retirement and will fight Juan Manuel Marquez on July 18th. This will be a huge fight.

Thank you Floyd for coming back to the sport that so greatly needs you.

I didn't think it would happen, but I'm glad that he has. I hope he's in top form, but I wonder about those brittle hands.

Marquez will get tooled. He is just too small. That is assuming Floys is Floyd after the layoff.

Well he already worked the fight to his advantage by insisting JMM move up two weight classes, so that neutralizes Marquez's power and gives Floyd the advantage. Although he is very talented, it's often Floyd's opponents who have to "make" the fight, otherwise it becomes dancing with the stars. I see Floyd winning this one backwards and lining up a match with Manny. Not sure he'll stick around long after that though, I think he retired because he didn't want to face the likes of Paul Williams, Margarito and Cotto who would have given him more than he was willing to take.

I think if Floyd never retired then he has a lot of great boxers that would match him up.. It was a good decision that he retired for a few months and return in the ring.. I will really look forward in his fight with JMM and see if the Floyd is back.. JMM has a all the disadvantages in this bout but let see.. things may not turn the way what we think like the De la Hoya VS Pac fight and the recent Pac VS Hatton
