Rumour has it that a featherweight unification match between IBF/WBA champion Juan Manuel Marquez and WBO titlist Scott Harrison will take place in Las Vegas on May 7th. The Scotsman's camp had promised Harrison a super fight in his new contract and it looks like they will deliver. If the fight had been made before Harrison's controversial draw with Colombian Victor Polo, there may have been more cause for optimism about his chances against the class Mexican, particularly since Marquez is also coming off a lacklustre performance while outpointing Orlando Salido. Despite Marquez's showing last time out, he has excellent skills, he is fast, accurate and has fantastic recovery powers which he proved when he climbed off the floor three times in the first round to claim a draw with Filipino star Manny Pacquiao. The Mexican has underrated power, having stopped Manuel Medina in seven rounds and rocked Pacquiao a few times. Harrison will have to use his strength against Marquez and try to bully him in the fight but Marquez just seems to have too many advantages. He has the style to cause Harrison all the problems in the world with his speed and boxing skills. Harrison will try to get closer to Marquez than he did against Polo but he is going to be really up against it in his attempt to bring Marquez's titles back to Scotland.
