Marquez: I See No Point in Fighting Manny Pacquiao Again

By Miguel Rivera

Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40KOs) is holding the high hand. The four division world champion doesn't see a reason for a fifth fight with Manny Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38KOs). Since 2004, Marquez has been chasing fights with Pacquiao. He practically begged and used every tactic possible to secure a third match in 2011. After knocking Pacquiao out in the sixth round of last December's fourth showdown, Marquez almost retired but made a decision to continue fighting.

Last week, Marquez's promoter Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions said Pacquiao was not necessarily the next opponent for Marquez. They plan to review all of the offers out there and analyze all of the possible options.

Marquez says that he doesn't see a reason for a fith meeting, after achieving the result he always wanted - a clear and decisive victory over Pacquiao.

"I think for me there is no point [in a fifth fight]. We already achieved the desired result. Then why do it? So I also asked several people, several friends that I have around me and they told me not to do it, that there is no point in a fifth fight. I said before the fourth fight that no matter how this fight ends, there can not be a fifth," Marquez said.

There is only one problem Marquez will face. A fifth fight with Pacquiao is the biggest payday out there for him. At 39-years-old, Marquez will want the biggest purses possible to close out his long career. A fifth fight Manny will give him the biggest purse possible.

Marquez unfortunately needs another pay day to secure his financial well being into retirement. We all know he should retire on top like many others have failed to do, but the money is too tempting. He needs to take this…
