Beltran Feels Pacquiao Will Select Fourth Marquez Bout

By Jose Luis Camarillo, notifight.com

Zanfer Promotions President Fernando Beltran, who promotes WBO 140-pound champion Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1, 39KOs) in Mexico, has a good feeling that Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38KOs) will select Marquez as the opponent for November 10th in either Dallas or Las Vegas.

Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum flew to Manila on Monday to meet with Pacquiao and finalize an opponent for the November date. In terms of business, Arum appears to prefer Marquez. Pacquiao has fought Marquez three times in the past and all three of their bouts have ended with controversy. Last November Pacquiao won a close majority decision in their third meeting.

The other two options include WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, who won a controversial decision over Pacquiao in June, and former three division champion Miguel Cotto, who Pacquiao stopped in the twelfth round in 2009. Cotto, who fights at 154-pounds and seems set to return on December 1 in New York's Madison Square Garden, is the least likely option.

[QUOTE=Vilicious86;12408581]What happens if there is another controversial decision? Will they fight a fifth time? It goes on and on. Pleeease stop calling Pacquiao P4P number one. This dude has gotten a ridiculous pass from the media the last few years.…

I would prefer to see MP fight Bradley again as it would be a better test to see if he still has it or whether he is rapidly declining....after losing last time he should be hungry to get the KO…
