By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

WBO junior welterweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1, 39KOs) is waiting to speak with his promoter Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions to figure out his next move in 2012. Marquez would like a fourth fight with Manny Pacquiao, who returns on November 10th. Marquez is one of the frontrunners to face Pacquiao in the fall.

If Marquez is unable to secure Pacquiao, he wants to defends one of his titles.

"I hope to talk to him at any moment, either in person or by telephone to find out who I'm going to fight, "Marquez said. "But I haven't received any news. I want to close the year out by defending one of my titles."

Marquez is willing to make the first defense of the WBO title at 140-pounds, or even drop down to 135 to defend his WBO/WBA titles. Marquez still regards himself as the WBA/WBO champion at lightweight.

"These [sanctioning bodies] have not informed me otherwise [that I'm not the champion at 135], so I consider myself the lightweight champion of these groups," Marquez said. "In the ring, nobody has taken the lightweight crown from me."
