Marquez Needs a "Good Reason" To Face Pacquiao

By CARLOS ARIAS

INGLEWOOD, CALIF. --- Juan Manuel Marquez isn't ready to make any decisions about who he will fight next after winning a unanimous decision over Mike Alvarado on Saturday night at The Forum.

"I don't know what will happen in my future," Marquez said. "Right now, I go to rest with my family in Mexico City."

Manny Pacquiao had already agreed to fight the Marquez-Alvarado winner, so that would mean a fifth fight between Marquez and Pacquiao. Marquez believed he settled the matter when he knocked out Pacquiao in their fourth fight.

"I know what's happening," Marquez said. "The money is beautiful for that fight. I need a good reason for the fifth fight. I need to talk with my family."

What are the factors Marquez is considering that would make him take the fifth fight?

"I have to see how I feel," Marquez said. "I felt great tonight. Let's see ho my body responds in the next couple of weeks and then we'll think about. I'm not making any decision right now."

Yes he passed, but this memo character is a master at his craft. It took a long time for Victor Contes crew to get caught.
