Marquez Does Not Expect Pacquiao To Overwhelm Bradley
by Osman Rodriguez
WBO junior welterweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1, 39 KOs) is fully focused on returning to the ring on July 14th at Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Marquez wants to line up a southpaw opponent to prepare himself for a potential fourth meeting with Manny Pacquiao in the fall. Marquez's opponent is unknown. The main boxer under consideration is Brandon Rios, who Marquez continues to reject because Rios is not a southpaw. Marquez would feel a lot more comfortable with an opponent like Zab Judah.
Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38 KOs) must first defeat Tim Bradley (28-0, 12 KOs) on June 9th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Marquez expects a rough fight, but feels Pacquiao will prevail.
"If Manny wants to fight with me again, I need another southpaw with Pacquiao's style. I need a southpaw," Marquez said.
"Tim Bradley will be a tough fight for Pacquiao, but Manny is the better fighter. Bradley is very physical but Manny will win."

Oh that Marquez how he cries. How about he gets his old sparring partners who prepared him for Pacquiao the third time, instead of fighting bums to pad his record?Post a Comment - View More User Comments (46)
