Juan Manuel Marquez May Target Maidana and Porter

By Rene Umanzor

Mexican superstar Juan Manuel Marquez reiterated that he only has one goal in mind: to become a world champion in five different weight divisions. He would like a rematch with WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley. But Bradley is being considered for an April 12 rematch with Manny Pacquiao.

If Pacquiao selects Bradley, Marquez notes that he won't be forced into fights with boxers like Ruslan Provodnikov or Mike Alvarado. Instead, he will pursue a world title opportunity with the other sanctioning bodies.

If it not likely that Marquez will get a rematch with the WBC king, Floyd Mayweather Jr., who in 2009 dominated Marquez in a one-sided fight. The leaves two options - WBA champion Marcos Maidana and IBF champion Shawn Porter. Maidana is heading in the direction of a rematch with Adrien Broner in April, while Porter's future plans are undetermined.

"My career is all about challenges. Right now the challenge [for my career] is to get a fifth title. And if can not get a [fight for] the title under the World Boxing Organization (WBO), there are others. I have to see the possibilities and if the opportunity opens - why not go get it. There is the International Boxing Federation (IBF), World Boxing Association (WBA), and the World Boxing Council (WBC)," said Marquez.

[QUOTE=mathed;14124724]I give him credit for trying to reach his goal, can't take that away from him.[/QUOTE] Agreed, but I feel both Maidana and Porter would impose their size on him. I don't know if the old Mexican would be able…

I've never thought about a Porter/Marquez fight. That would be interesting and I would watch to be honest, better sell it at like 30-40 dollars doe Maidana beats Juan at this point in his career. That'll be a close fight…
