Chris John Targets Juan Manuel Marquez: I'll Win Again

Unbeaten Indonesian boxer Chris John is hoping to lure Juan Manuel Marquez to Singapore for a "big money" rematch after the Mexican's stunning win over Manny Pacquiao, a report said Monday.

John outpointed Marquez in Indonesia in 2006 in a decision that was disputed by the Mexican's team. Now John hopes Marquez, who knocked old foe Pacquiao out on Saturday, will be tempted to settle another Asian score.

"I will fight Marquez at any weight because it is a big money fight," John, undefeated in 50 fights and the World Boxing Association's featherweight champion since 2003, told the Straits Times.

"I hope they can bring him to Singapore because it is the best venue I have ever fought in."

On Saturday in Las Vegas, Marquez knocked Pacquiao cold in the sixth round of their non-title welterweight slugfest for his first victory in four meetings with the Filipino great.

"I am a much better boxer than him (Marquez) and I have more speed and skill," said John.

"He is a massive puncher and knocked Manny Pacquiao clean out with one punch and it is my job to make sure I do not get hit with the same punch. I want the fight and will win again."

Australian promoter Angelo Hyder said he would propose a fight at lightweight, meaning the Mexican would have to shed weight and John would have to gain about four kilograms (nine pounds).

"Marquez and his team have always disputed the (2006) decision, even though all three judges gave it to Chris, and so boxing in a neutral place like Singapore could help make the fight happen," Hyder said.

"We will approach them and try and get the fight because this is unfinished business."
