Marquez Gives Until April To Decide on Pacquiao Fight

By Alfredo Jaime Gomez, notifight.com

On Tuesday night in Mexico City, there was a meeting between Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40KOs) and his promoter Bob Arum, CEO of Top Rank. The two of them met to discuss the details of a fifth fight with Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38KOs). After the meeting, Arum said Marquez was given until April to decide his future.

Juan Manuel told Arum that he doesn't know what he wants to do next, regarding a fight with Pacquiao. They decided to revisit the conversation in April. Last December, in their fourth meeting, Marquez knocked Pacquiao out in the sixth round.

During a recent interview, Marquez once again rejected the idea of a fifth fight with Pacquiao.

"I think the fifth fight with Pacquiao is pointless. I think the book was closed on the rivalry between me and Manny on the 8th of December. We are now contemplating other fights, other opponents......Brandon Rios, for example," Marquez said.

It used to be Marquez waiting on Pacquiao to decide who he would fight next. Now it is Pacquiao having to wait on Marquez, PRICELESS! Marquez doesn't need the money. He can fight others and do millions.
