Juan Manuel Marquez Will Evaluate Future Fight By Fight

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

Juan Manuel Marquez (53-6-1, 39KOs) will evaluate the future of his career with each passing fight. On April 14th at the new arena in Mexico City, Marquez will face Ukrainian Sergey Fedchenko (30-1, 13KOs) for the WBO's interim-junior welterweight title. If he wins, he plans to return on July 14th in Texas, and then hopes to close 2012 with a fourth meeting against Manny Pacquiao in the month of November.

He is very motivated at the moment for Fedchenko, which gives the Mexican legend the opportunity to capture a fourth world title.

"It motivates me a lot to go for my fourth divisional world championship. I have collected three, and now I am going for the fourth, at junior welterweight under the WBO. I'm no youngster, but I want to continue boxing. Right now, I can't say if I'll have two more fights or five more. I'm going to take things [fight by fight] and I'll see how my body responds," Marquez said. 

Marquez expects a tough battle with Fedchenko in April. He invited Pacquiao to attend the fight, but doubts he will be there.

"He will be one of the toughest opponents of my career. I am very motivated to fight in Mexico City. I have to win because then great things will come," Marquez said.

[QUOTE=jrrod02;11945772]Pacquiao won't give Marquez the rematch. I believe Bradley will beat Pacquiao, and then Pacquiao will retire. Sad part is we'll probably see him 2 years later because like Mayweather did when he first "retired' he'll run out of money.[/QUOTE]…

[QUOTE=4CornersKid;11945435]Pacquiao would f**king hill Bradnon Rios, and I'm a big Rios fan. Pacquiao is just all wrong for him. I don't really want to see Pacquiao-Marquez IV, just because it's not really needed. But, I'd buy it to see if…
