Juan Manuel Marquez' win

Saturday night's victory by Juan Manuel Marquez over Joel Casamayor in a battle of top lightweights was significant in many ways.

Marquez is a bigger name in the sport and now he can aim for fights against the likes of Juan Diaz and Nate Campbell down the road.

Marquez started slow against Casamayor but eventually wore him down and stopped him in the 11th round.

A potential fight with either Diaz or Campbell would be an intriguing fight. Marquez seems to still be giving a tremendous effort at his age and his skill level is still high.

It's great to see him finally getting some recognition for his career after getting stuck in obscurity for so long.

Who do you think Marquez should fight next?
