Marquez: Fans Want Pacquiao-Mayweather, Not Part 5!

By Jose Moreno & Rene Umanzor

Former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez has once again dismissed the possibility of a fifth fight with Manny Pacquiao. Marquez us training hard for his upcoming fight with Mike Alvarado on May 17th at The Forum in Los Angeles, California.

Top Rank's CEO, Bob Arum, had promised to match the Marquez-Alvarado winner against the winner of last week's rematch between Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley. Pacquiao won a twelve round unanimous decision.

Marquez has been pretty firm with his position that there is no reason for a fifth fight with Pacquiao. After three close and controversial meetings, Marquez knocked Pacquiao out in the sixth round of their fourth bout in 2012.

The Mexican icon says the boxing public has no interest in a fifth fight - they all want to see the super-fight between Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr.

"I think the fight that the fans want is Manny and Floyd. That's what they want to see and they should do it. I have already had four fights with Pacquiao, and many people would prefer to see these two opponents face each other in the ring. I think if we voted on what fight people want to see, I sure they would want to see Pacquiao vs Mayweather Jr. There is talk of a fifth fight [with Pacquiao], but I am not losing any sleep over it. I am preparing to fight against Alvarado and I don't care about any other fight," Marquez said.

[QUOTE=Spoon23;14435359]The reason is there will be vada blood testing in this fight. He's going to be a weak version of himself if they went to 5. No roids means, Pac will eat him up and spit him easy. Pac almost…

[QUOTE=champion4ever;14430983]I think Marquez may be angling for a Bradley rematch even without the title belt, if he gets past Alvarado because he thought he beat him the first time.[/QUOTE] In other words, the winning the 147 title was a cover…

[QUOTE=montculapius;14434948]Marquez is just scared to fight pac again. He was a bloody mess and about to go down when pac walked into that lucky shot. He knows pac will not be so careless the next time.[/QUOTE] Exactly. He knows his…

[QUOTE=hillbilly;14431138]Marquez also thought he won the fight against Bradley. That is an absolute joke. He and nacho are delusional at times. Hell, it was Nacho's fault he lost the third fight after telling him to take the foot off the…
