Juan Manuel Marquez (53-6-1, 39KOs) will only stick around for a fourth showdown with Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38KOs). The Mexican champion is considering the possibility of retirement and plans to make a final decision within 20 days to a month. If he decides to continue his career, Pacquiao is the only fight he wants or else he'll retire from boxing. Last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Pacquiao retained his WBO welterweight title with a controversial twelve round majority decision over Marquez.

"The fight can't happen in Las Vegas, and there have to be neutral judges and we must do well economically. Then people will realize the fight is going to be completely neutral and a true winner will leave the ring. We must convey that boxing still has credibility. In the two matches that I've had with him, I found a weak point. And I've always said that if I fought him with the same speed, with the same pace, with movements of the waist and with counterattacks - it make things complicated for him - and that's what we did, and we fought him with intelligence. If I don't fight [Pacquiao], there isn't anyone else, I'll just retire," Marquez told Sal Rodriguez.

JMM has not been ducking anyone. Why would he duck Zorita? Zorita is a good lightweight, but he brings no money to the table like bigger names do. I would love to see them fight, but if JMM is making only 5Mil compared to Pacs 20-25 mil, why would he fight Zorita Soto for less? The bottom line is...

Humberto Soto has been challenging Marquez since 2007, but JMM is scared to fight Soto. JMM wants to retire to avoid fighting Soto, cause there has been media presure in Mexico, that they both fight, and lots of Mexican media know that JMM is ducking Soto.

This is what´s up kids: if at this point the Pacquiao and Mayweather parties fail to make the fight that this era of boxing needs, the Golden Boy and Top Rank people don´t deserve to be called promoters, and neither Pacquiao nor Mayweather deserve to be called fighters anymore, let alone All Time...

[QUOTE=delpilar]By demanding a Mexican venue, Marquez has already admitted that he can only defeat Pacquiao through a hometown decision. Aside from securing a hometown decision, Juan wants to be paid double. I think it’s about time that American officials put their foot down hard on Juan’s hea...
