Juan Manuel Marquez Fully Focused To Continue Career
By Giancarlo Oquendo & Miguel Rivera
Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40KOs) may still continue his career beyond a fifth fight with Manny Pacquiao in the fall, according to his promoter Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions. Marquez's wife has given him permission to have a few more fights. The plan is to have a fifth fight with Manny Pacquiao in September, and the next clash is being pushed to take place outside of the United States for tax purposes.
"Juan Manuel Márquez already confirmed to me that he plans to continue [his career] in boxing and [told me] it is necessary to begin to review offers, to see the plans, to begin [the next steps] the following big fight [from last December]. He already spoke with his wife and children, with his family, and they support him in continuing [his career]," Beltran said.
"The two fighters do not want to pay so many taxes, and yes there is the possibility that it will happen in Macau, which is something that [Top Rank CEO] Bob [Arum] likes. [Arum] will do a show [in Macau] in April and he will see what we can do there and what kind of purses [we can get for the fighters] and other aspects. But there is also the new arena in Mexico City."

JuanMa should call out Bradley and school his ass. Take that belt from him. Also why wait 7 months to fight Manny for a 5th time!?!? Should be a Summer bout. [SIZE="1"][I]Posted from Boxingscene.com App for Android[/I][/SIZE]Comment by swinepig on 02-01-2013
[QUOTE=DTMB;12977775]i highly favor pacquiao in a fifth fight. he was winning that fight until he got over confident and reckless. that last fight might have been marquez last hurrah. he might have given his last great fight and he finally…Comment by 2todabody on 01-31-2013
If he's set financially (which he probably is) he should just call it a day. That clear cut win over Pac is his pinnacle/weight off his back, he probably won't be able to get up for future fights like he…Post a Comment/View More User Comments (61)
