Marquez: I'll Walk Away With Memory of Pacquiao KO

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

Former four division champion Juan Manuel Marquez makes it clear that Manny Pacquiao is a thing of the past. Marquez has no interest in a fifth fight with the Filipino boxer - responding to reports that Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum would be interested in matching them next year if both boxers are able to win their upcoming fights. Marquez faces WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley at the Thomas And Mack Center in Las Vegas, and Pacquiao takes on Brandon Rios on November 23 in Macau, China.

After three close and controversial meetings, Marquez knocked Pacquiao out cold in the sixth round of their fourth meeting last December in Las Vegas.

"Pacquiao has been saying many things and immediately you can see that he wants me to take the bait, but he won't achieve that. What he wants is a fifth fight, but it's not going to happen. I wish to leave this sport with the memory of knocking Pacquiao out after they stole three decisions from me. And [in the fourth fight] I showed who was the better fighter," Marquez said.

"I'd rather stay with the memory of that lucky punch that I connected on Pacquiao [Marquez was being sarcastic there]. It's about pride and honor, not money. That's why in that contest there was no championship at stake, only the WBO's Champion of The Decade belt. There are no plans [to fight after Bradley]. We'll leave this commitment first, and then see. First I want to see how I feel and if I plan continue with my career."
