Juan Manuel Marquez: No Provodnikov, No Alvarado!

By Rene Umanzor

Former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez, 40-years-old, is still not fully decided on whether he plans to continue fighting. Marquez is still pursuing a rematch with WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, who won a twelve round split decision over Marquez last October in Las Vegas.

"The best option for me is that rematch with Bradley and undoubtedly that's my goal, but first I must decide if I plan to continue boxing. For me, it would be great and fill me with pride to bring Bradley to Mexico and have neutral judges, to say goodbye here in my country," Marquez said.

"Right now I'm knocking on the door of retirement, but I want to have two more fights. But, behind that decision is my family, my team, the people who are with you always. Some people who I consider friends, they tell me to stop boxing, and if I decide to do that at this point - I will retire satisfied."

Marquez made it clear, once again, that he doesn't have any interest in facing WBO 140-pound champion Ruslan Provodnikov or tough junior welterweight Mike Alvarado.

"Neither Alvarado nor Provodnikov are in my plans. I'm going forward. They are great fighters, and I'm not putting them down, but I gain nothing by fighting with them. If I beat Provodnikov I win a title that was already mine and Alvarado is not a champion. I have nothing to prove. I want a fifth world title and that's my goal," Marquez said.

The way things are looking Bradley might fight JMM, because it's all about the money! But, if Marquez thinks it will be in Mexico he's ****in high !!
