Edgar Sosa Advises Juan Manuel Marquez To Fight On

By Jose Luis Camarillo, notifight.com

Edgar Sosa, Mexico's popular former WBC flyweight world champion, believes the key to the longevity and continued success of Juan Manuel Marquez is because the boxer leads "an ordinary life. An example of what you can achieve by leading a life without distractions and being an athlete dedicated to your work. "

Sosa stated: "Marquez has placed himself among the greatest Mexican fighters in spectacular fashion by knocking out (Manny) Pacquiao. Pacquiao was considered by many to be something like a God, for having defeated De La Hoya, Cotto, Margarito, Morales, Barrera - all of the greats. Marquez, who five or six years ago was unknown to many, beat him. He fought aggressively and smart and was able to counterpunch the Filipino with the right hand and he caught Pacquiao coming in, because [Pacquiao] was confident because he thought Marquez was very hurt."

Sosa says Marquez, at 39-years-old, should continue fighting. Marquez's wife Erika telling him to retire, but there is a lot of money at stake for a fifth fight with Pacquiao in the fall.

"I would not [retire], really. As Erik Morales once said, how can you walk away when you're making more money [than you've ever made in the past]."

Sosa must be a ******* wanting revenge. JMM should retire now that he's one of the biggest names in boxing and can triple the amount of money he's made his whole career.

[QUOTE=stretchedout;12886571]I agree, Marquez should put on a showcase. Pac is a cracked egg, he is done, Marquez should finish him off in Mexico. Bank one final mega-payday, and finish Pacquiao off for good. But I'm a bit worried about Pac…
