Marquez Praises Fedchenko, Eyes July 14 and Pacquiao

By Alfredo Jaime Gomez, notifight.com

On Saturday, before a crowd of over 22,000 fans at the new Arena Mexico in Mexico City - Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1, 39KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over Sergey Fedchenko (30-2, 13KOs) to win the WBO's interim-junior welterweight title. The scores were 119-109, 118-110 and 118-110.

Marquez plans to return on July 14th at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The four division world champion praised Fedchenko, admitting the Ukrainian boxer presented a few stylistic complications.

Marquez hopes to secure a fourth fight with Manny Pacquiao, in the fall, but the fourth fight is not a sure thing until the outcome of Pacquiao's fight on June 9th against Timothy Bradley.

"I was moved, I was moved by the response from the audience [to my fight], which was something great. I wanted to give them a victory by knockout, but I failed to do so. Fedchenko is very brave, has a lot of stamina and can fight going backwards. But there is no doubt about my victory. I hope to get news about a fourth fight with Manny Pacquiao, sooner than later. I'll go against a lefty on July 14 in Texas," Marquez said.

What would everyone here be saying Fedchenko survived 12 rounds vs. Floyd, Pac, or Rios? Don't lie. You would all be talking shlt talking about how Fedchenko exposed Floyd/Pac/Rios/Whoever. But because it's JMM everyone just kinda shrugs and nobody cares.
