Marquez: I'd Fight Bradley if He Wins Pacquiao Rematch

By Ryan Burton

BoxingScene.com caught up with four division champion Juan Manuel Marquez shortly after Timothy Bradley's controversial victory over Manny Pacquiao.  The Mexican fighter was hoping to face Pacquiao for a fourth time in November but now Pacquiao and Bradley will be squaring off in a rematch instead. 

"I have to accept the result from the  fight and move on with my career," Marquez stated.  "Pacquiao and Bradley have a rematch on November 10th so I just have to continue on with my career.  I'm still looking at maybe fighting on July 21st," he continued.

While Marquez believes that Pacquiao defeated Bradley and would prefer to face the Filipino, he said that he would be interested in facing Bradley if he were to win again.

"Bradley is now the (WBO) champion at 147 pounds while I am now elevated to the (WBO) champion at super lightweight. So we will wait and see what happens in the rematch on November 10th.  If Bradley wins then why not have a fight between him and myself at welterweight?" Marquez asked.

I like Marquez, but if you aren't getting a Bradley or Pacquiao fight in the fall because they may fight each other again, go for someone else in the fall. Go for someone like Rios or Alvarado. Oh how about…
