Juan Manuel Marquez To Fight On, April Return in Play

According to sources in Mexico, Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40KOs) will continue his career in 2013. Following December's sixth round knockout of Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38KOs), Marquez was under a lot of pressure, as the boxer's wife wanted him to retire. Marquez, 39-years-old, took a long vacation with his family and a final decision was made to continue.

A good source indicates that Marquez held a recent meeting with promoter Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions and they agreed to a ring return in April - either on April 13 or April 20 - and the two potential opponents being mentioned are Jessie Vargas (21-0, 9KOs) and Vyacheslav Senchenko (33-1, 22KOs). Vargas, according to sources, is said to be the favorite, among those two names, to land the match. Pacquiao will also take an interim fight in April - and then both superstars would come together for a fifth battle in September.

The location and venue of the April fight is still a mystery. The fight could take place in the United States or the Mexican icon could return to Mexico City, where he defeated Sergey Fedchenko last year.

[QUOTE=-Kev-]They are as good as it can get for a tune up. They're also legit 140-147 pounders while i'm not convinced Marquez is even a full fledged JWW. I still see him as a LW. His two wins over Pacquiao at 147 has people thinking that he's actually a WW. Maybe, just maybe, he could already be...

[QUOTE=lefthook2daliva]I'd like to see Marquez fight Bradley or one of the other young guns, but if he wants to face a lesser foe this time out, I can't fault him. Not like he makes a habit out of it...[/QUOTE] No he doesn't remember he's the one who stepped up and fought mayweather.

JMM should have retired, there's no point in a fifth match when both fighters are past their primes. Why do fighters need to get KTFO or beaten to a pulp in order for them to realize its time to hang em up?
