Marquez Would Consider Garcia, Peterson For The Fall
By Miguel Rivera
For most of this year, WBO 140-pound champion Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1, 39KOs) has been holding out for a fourth meeting with Manny Pacquiao. Marquez is still hoping for a fourth bout with Pacquiao on November 10th. The way it appears at the moment, WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley is the most likely candidate to face Pacquiao in November. Bradley won a controversial twelve round decision over Pacquiao in June.
Should the fight with Pacquiao not materialize, Marquez would consider some big unification bouts at junior welterweight - with IBF champion Lamont Peterson (30-1-1, 15KOs) or WBA/WBC champion Danny Garcia (24-0, 15KOs).
If Pacquiao and Bradley fail to reach an agreement, Marquez would consider facing Bradley, but prefers to face Pacquiao first.
"What I want is the best. Bradley does interest me, but [I would] first prefer to settle my outstanding accounts with Pacquiao and then I would face Bradley. [If I don't get Pacquiao, then] I could face Lamont Peterson, Danny Garcia....there are good fighters [out there]. I would be interested in unifying the titles. I can fight anybody in the 140-pound division," Marquez said.

JMM beats them all. Any of these victories would just make him more of a legend that he already is. I can see JMM vs Garcia go like fight vs Katsidis. Would beat Bradley in a boring fight. Jmm will…Comment by lefthook2daliva on 07-23-2012

[QUOTE=Mr. Fantastic;12362845]Marquez vs Garcia is the most interesting to me. Stamp the Mex vs PR n you also have a belt on the line. It would sell more than Peterson by far.[/QUOTE] this^^^^^^^^^^ Garcia-Marquez is a fight I would LOVE…Comment by Toltec77 on 07-23-2012
