Marquez Replies To Roach, Says Diaz Bout is Necessary

By Miguel Rivera

WBA/WBO lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez has given his reply to a recent comment that was made by Freddie Roach, the trainer of WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao. Roach is tired of Marquez claiming highway robbery in the two previous meetings with Pacquiao. He wants his boxer to "shut the mouth" of Marquez for good. Marquez doesn't care what Roach thinks, he believes the judges robbed him of a win in the first fight, which went to a twelve round draw, and the second, which Pacquiao won with a close points twelve round split decision.

"I think that Freddie Roach has his own point of view, and that's his hobby, but the best judges out there are the people [who watched the fights]," Marquez said.

A few people have tried to get Marquez to back away from fighting former champion David Diaz on July 16 in Mexico. Marquez wants the fight to prepare and stay sharp for the trilogy fight with Pacquiao on November 12 in Las Vegas. As BoxingScene.com reported several weeks ago, Diaz is holding up the agreement by requesting a lot of money to take the fight.

"I want the fight with Diaz. He is left-handed, very strong, and all of that would serve me well for my fight with Pacquiao in November. The problem we have.....Diaz is asking for a lot of money to sign the contract," said Marquez.

Let all fans and fighters admit, both Pacquiao and Marquez are great fighters and gives great fights. The trouble is, when Marquez looses a fight, she starts wearing a "palda" and complains she was robbed. Since Marquez sees Pacquiao as…
