Marquez - Juarez Fight Cancelled

Juan Marquez suffered a cut and infection on his hand and the entire card is cancelled? I was looking forward to his bout with Rocky Juarez at Super Featherweight. Here's the announcement:

Junior lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez, suffering from an infection in a cut on a knuckle on his right hand, withdrew from a scheduled Sept. 15 defense against Rocky Juarez, and the entire "Fireworks" card was canceled Friday night.

I wonder what's behind that? I guess you can take it at face value. Oh well, there's Taylor-Pavlik coming up September 29. As usual, Kelly Pavlik will be ready to rumble but the smart money thinks that Taylor will be too strong for him.

Anyone have opinions to offer on this one?
