Arum: Pacquiao is Always Ready To Face Marquez

By Miguel Rivera

Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum, says Manny Pacquiao is always read to trade punches with Mexican rival Juan Manuel Marquez. The two fighters have already faced each other four times. A draw in their 2004 meeting and then Pacquiao (55-5-2, 38KOs) winning controversial decisions in 2008 and 2011. Marquez (55-7-1, 40KOs) got his revenge in 2012, with a one-punch knockout of Pacquiao.

On May 17th, Marquez will return to the ring against Mike Alvarado, while Pacquiao challenges WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley in a rematch on April 12th.

Arum has set it where the winners of the two fights will face each other later in the year.

"The winner of Pacquiao-Bradley will go against the winner of the Marquez-Alvarado. I remember that Jake [LaMotta] and Ray Robinson fought over five times, but whatever, I'd make a new Pacquiao-Marquez fight. Pacquiao is always ready to fight Marquez and he already said 'get me a fifth fight,'" Arum said.

[QUOTE=littlemac;14341857]Pacquiao is always ready for Marquez [B][U]as long as Marquez agrees to take the test [/U][/B]by himself without Manny having to test. :lol1:[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=big_james10;14341981]Good point.[/QUOTE] Terrible point considering that Manny has already done extra testing with Rios and now Bradley.…
