Former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40 KO's) has revealed that he plans to continue his career by challenging WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (30-0, 12 KO's) for the WBO welterweight championship on September 14th at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. The fight is almost sure to land on HBO Pay-Per-View

"I had a meeting, I spoke with my family. The decision was made because I still feel good. I feel capable and I can probably do two or three more fights," Marquez told ESPN Deportes Radio.

Marquez says he was given two return options - Bradley or WBO interim-junior welterweight champion Mike Alvarado. He selected Bradley.

"They discussed two opponents for September 14: Mike Alvarado and Timothy Bradley. I like challenges, Bradley would be a difficult fight for me. Apart from being world champion it would be a challenge to fight him and win another big challenge title in a fifth division, which for me is something that fills me with pride to have the opportunity to try," he said.

This move by Marquez would leave Manny Pacquiao with the likely option of facing Alvarado on a date in October in Macau.

[QUOTE=woopwoop]Oh ok, at first he wants 50/50, Was told to GTFO, now it's about legacy? Lol come on now[/QUOTE] As far as we know Marquez has been firm on not fighting Pacquiao for a 5th time. Those 50/50 comments were made by Roach. He can't be trusted on anything regarding Marquez. H...
