Juan Manuel Marquez Eyes Porter vs. Brook Winner
By Salvador Rodriguez
Promoter Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions would love to match Juan Manuel Marquez (56-7-2, 40KOs) against the winner of next Saturday's fight between IBF champion Shawn Porter and mandatory challenger Kell Brook.
Marquez will be ringside for Porter-Brook at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. The former four division champion will be working the corner of Daniel Estrada, who challenges WBC lightweight champion Omar Figueroa on the card.
Beltran is very interested in having Marquez face the winner in a major event on Mexican soil.
Marquez also likes the idea, but first the 40-year-old veteran wants to determine if he intends to continue his career.
"I would love to fight in Mexico with Porter or Brook. Both are great fighters, it would be a great fight with both. We have to see if the promoters are willing to negotiate. But [first I have to decide if I plan to] continue in this sport," said Marquez.
