Juan Manuel Marquez is Disgusted, Mulls Retirement

By Ryan Burton

MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada -  A dejected Juan Manuel Marquez told the media that he doesn't know what he needs to do to leave the ring a winner when he fights Manny Pacquiao. Before a soldout crowd, Pacquiao won a controversial twelve round majority decision over Marquez, with scores of 114-114, 115-113 and 116-112.

"I don't know what I need to do to convince the judges that I won," said  Marquez.

Marquez feels that his performance in the third fight of their trilogy was a more definitive win than the first two fights which he feels he also won.  He feels he put on a great performance and should have been named the winner.

"I think I won this fight more clearly than the first two. I don't know what I need to do to win.  I feel happy about my performance in the ring. I won the fight again."

Marquez said that he is so disappointed that he is thinking of retiring.  He revealed that he will talk to his inner circle and shortly come to a conclusion on whether to continue his career. 

"For the third time I feel like I won (versus Pacquiao). Right now I need to sit down with my family and my team and decide if I want to continue or hang up my gloves."

[QUOTE=Hallaqsillaq;11420565]First of all, it's not Mexicans alone complaining. The majority of all professional boxers are complaining, boxing pundits are complaining, and fight fans around the globe are complaining. It was yet another gift to Packy. Also, Marquez was also champ,…
