Marquez To Decide on 4/15: Tim Bradley is The Target

By Salvador Rodriguez

Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40KOs) plans to decide his future on April 15th and right now WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (30-0, 12KOs) is the main target on his list - even above a financially lucrative fifth fight with Manny Pacquiao. Marquez has already stated, several times, that he doesn't have any interest in a fifth fight with his Filipino rival. He wants to get the opportunity to capture world championship in a fifth weight division.

"[Fighting Bradley] weighs more to me because he's a great fighter, he is the champion, so logically as a fighter you always want to fight the best and Bradley is the champion and you want the championship. If I decide to continue, Bradley would be a great opponent," Marquez said.

"I do not care about a fifth fight [with Pacquiao], after what happened in the first three fights where there were controversial decisions, controversial where we had actually won and in this fourth fight we had a great victory and I would be very satisfied to let the memory of that remain, and to keep that feeling in place for myself, and also, for the Mexicans. We must go forward, pursue new goals, new directions. And for me to have had four fights with someone they had rated as the best pound for pound - and I made it clear that he is not the best pound for pound - searching for new challenges is important."
