Frank Espinoza: Vazquez vs. Marquez not a done deal
12.01.07 - Reports by various media outlets have stated that a super-fight between WBO Bantamweight champion Rafael Marquez and my fighter, WBC Super Bantamweight and "The Ring" World Champion, Israel Vazquez, is a done deal. As it stands, we have not received contracts or discussed money, therefore, those reports are inaccurate. It's been reported that Marquez vs. Vazquez will take place on April 7th on Showtime. As much as we would love for this explosive fight to take place on such a prestigious network, until business is discussed, finalized and we've reach a satisfactory agreement, it can't be considered official..

This is a fight that the public demands and that must be made in order to satisfy the thirst of boxing fans around the world. Make no mistake, we also want this fight to happen.
As much as all parties concerned want the fight to materialize, the fact of the matter is, it's not done until the contracts are signed, sealed and delivered. At this time, they are not.
Manager for Israel Vazquez
