Former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez (55-7-1, 40KOs), 40-years-old, could return on a date in May, according to the boxer himself. Marquez was last in the ring in October, when he lost a twelve round split decision to WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. Marquez would like to get a rematch with Bradley, but Bradley may enter into a rematch with Manny Pacquiao on April 12th.

"In the event that I decide to continue [my career, my next fight] would be in May, so I could return to the gym in a week, to have a strong preparation, as I'm used to. I'm thinking about a fight in May," said Marquez. "I feel good, but the risks must also be measured, because this sport is one of the most difficult."

Juan Manuel Marquez VS Marcos Maidana would give Mayweather VS TBA a bite on the PPV n would be a bad a$$ fight. Too bad MM has to rematch AB's made up clause.
