Marquez: If My Children Tell Me To Retire, I Will Retire

By Rafael Soto

Former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez is riding high after his brutal sixth round knockout victory over Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Marquez dedicated his first official victory over Pacquiao to his family and to Mexico. At 39-years-old, Marquez will have a big decision to make regarding his future in the sport. Marquez plans to discuss his options with his family. If his children ask him to retire, he will retire.

"First a congratulations and my appreciation to Pacquiao, who was always a great rival, very strong, very brave. I came well prepared for a difficult, hard fight, and to exploit the weaknesses of Pacquiao and I accomplished that. It is with great emotion that I give this joy to the Mexican public and my family. This is what I prepared for and here is the result...we won by knockout as I said and now it's time to celebrate and spend time with my family. If my children ask me to retire, I will retire. I've already achieved everything that I've what to," Marquez said.
