Beltran Could See Pacquiao, Marquez Take Interim Bouts

By Miguel Rivera

Promoter Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions, who co-promotes Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40KOs), could see his boxer, and Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38KOs), taking interim-fights before meeting each other for a fifth time. There have already been discussions for the fifth fight.

Last week Beltran and Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum had their first round of talks during dinner in Mexico City. Marquez will make a decision on his next fight by April.

"Manny wants to face Juan Manuel Marquez and I am sure that this fight can be done. I think that before this fight it is more likely that Marquez and Pacquiao will face the winners of the fights between Timothy Badley and Ruslan Provodnikov [taking place on 3/16] and Brandon Rios against Mike Alvarado [taking place on 3/30]," Beltran said.

Beltran does feel the fifth fight has a good chance to take place before the end of the year.

[QUOTE=Jensen_usmc;13111054]I would love to see both Marquez and Pacquiao fight either one of these guys. Pacquiao could redeem himself with a Bradley win and Marquez can prove he can fight top opposition. Either way fans win. Both fights are PPV…

[QUOTE=LA_2_Vegas;13111062]Well, if those will be matchups then make it happen. I also like the 5th fight so I really don't care what happens now since the opponents sound good.[/QUOTE] My sentiments exactly.
