By Miguel Rivera

Former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40KOs) has disregarded a fifth fight with Manny Pacquiao and says Timothy Bradley (29-2, 12KOs) and Brandon Rios (31-0-1, 23KOs) are the two possibilities at the top of his list. Bradley will defend his WBO title against Ruslan Provodnikov on Saturday in California, and Rios will face Mike Alvarado in a rematch on March 30th in Las Vegas. One boxer Marquez says he will never fight is WBC 154-pound champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (41-0-1, 30KOs). Marquez and Canelo have traded words in the past, but the Mexican star says 154 is too much weight for his body.

"In April I will decide if I plan to continue in boxing or if I'm going to retire. I definitely will not go against Saúl Álvarez. I will not fight him because it is a lot of weight to go up to super welterweight and on the day of the fight Canelo would be a middleweight. Also, he has a difficult fight ahead with Austin Trout and he has to break some stones to prove his merit. Now I might fight against Brandon Rios or Timothy Bradley, but I will make a decision on this situation in April and later I will chat with promoters Bob Arum and Fernando Beltrán," Marquez said.

[QUOTE=newyorican_papi] How CANELO is mentioned in the same sentence as Marquez makes me question peoples abilities to use common sense in the world of boxing. I don't have anything to reply on that stupid idea. :kabong:[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=tlarry]Of course he's too big for JMM, then shu...

no one even asked for that fight.... I think JMM is just trying to hype up a fight with the ginger. . with JMM new power pellets, I think he 's confident that he can get a belt at 154

[QUOTE=lefthook2daliva]Would love to see JMM fight either Rios or Bradley, though I think Bradley the more challenging of the 2. I'll take JMM by KO over Rios and UD over Bradley. As to Cotto, the scuttlebutt seems to be that he doesn't like to train very hard any more. If that's the case, no ...

Why would he even mention Canelo? Yea they had words in the past so?

Nobody Wants Canelo; Not Mayweather, Not JMM
comment by tlarry, on 03-16-2013
Of course he's too big for JMM, then shut up and don't trade words with Canelo if u aren't going to move up and fight him. Everyone wanted to crucify Pacquiao for not wanting to go up to 154 again after he beat Margarito. He said he didn't like carrying the extra weight, and on fight night Margar...
