Juan Manuel Marquez Plans To Pursue Bradley Rematch

By Rene Umanzor

Juan Manuel Marquez (55-7-1, 40KOs) plans to pursue a rematch with WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (31-0-1, 12KOs). Marquez felt he was robbed a few weeks ago when Bradley was awarded a twelve round split decision at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. Marquez, 40 years-old, also felt he was robbed against Manny Pacquiao when he fought the Filipino star to a draw in 2004. He made a career mission to get revenge on Pacquiao, and that mission resulted in three more fights between the two.

Marquez says his main motivation to continue in boxing is to set the record straight against Bradley.

"I'm sad for what happened in my last fight, because I needed to win. I was more focused and stronger, but as I look to the future....what motivates me is a rematch with Bradley. Nothing else could take place if I don't carry out this fight. I have to settle this issue with Timothy Bradley, as long as he accepts a rematch, because I want to make it clear who won on the 12th of October. Right now I'm not thinking about [other opponents], I'm more interested in making a rematch against Bradley to make it clear who is who. I already talked a bit with [trainer] Nacho [Beristain] and we feel that is the best option," Marquez said.

[QUOTE=crespin79;13913310]If JMM wants a rematch, Bradley should insist on VADA testing.[/QUOTE] Be should... I bet Marquez will demand a rehydration clause too. Bradley should accept since he was less than 10 pounds the next day

[QUOTE=The Gambler1981;13871879]Was petty close and a decent fight a rematch would be alright. Not the greatest thing in the world but far from the worst.[/QUOTE] If JMM wants a rematch, Bradley should insist on VADA testing.
