Former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40KOs) says the possibility of retirement is tempting. At 39-years-old and many wars since turning pro on May 29th, 1993. Marquez started boxing at a very young age and the majority of his life has been spent in the ring. 

Last Saturday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Marquez accomplished his most desired goal by securing a victory over Filipino rival Manny Pacquiao and did so with a vicious one-punch knockout in the sixth round.

Marquez will now celebrate and then he plans to go on vacation with his family. Eventually he will sit down with his family to make a final decision on the future of his boxing career.

"My mission has been accomplished and I can retire quietly and that's what I'll talk to my family about, because I've had a 28 year career [in boxing] and the body suffers, and thus retirement would be great for me - but I need to think about it a little more. I can not say if there will be a fifth fight, but Pacquiao is a great fighter and he has proven that in every fight," Marquez said.

Edison "Eddy" Reynoso, co-manager/trainer of Saul Alvarez, said Marquez achieved - "undoubtedly one of the most important victories in the history of Mexican boxing."

Even Erik Morales noted "what a spectactular knockout of Pacquiao by Marquez."

[QUOTE=stretchedout]I think that you are understating the first fight, and overstating the fourth, and I think you missed my point about the first fight. The fourth fight was not "mostly dominated by Pacquiao's movement, feints, and aggression"..... 1.5 rounds were.[/quote] Clearly 1.5 rounds we...
