Marquez Could Return in Mexico City Before Big Fight

By Salvador Rodriguez

Promoter Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions has revealed that former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez (55-7-1, 40KOs) is very interested in returning to action in Mexico City, and then looking for a rematch with WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley in the second half of 2014. Marquez, 40-years-old, told Beltran that he wants to fight at least two more times.

Marquez last fought in Mexico City in April of 2012, when he scored a twelve round unanimous decision over Sergey Fedchenko to capture the WBO junior welterweight championship.

"We are in contact. He is looking for a rematch with Bradley and we are intending to do a fight in Mexico. The Mexican fans deserve the opportunity to see him. [The fight in Mexico] would happen before the rematch with Bradley. We do not have anyone specific [in mind for the opponent], but we are sure it will be a highly rated opponent," Beltran said.

It could be Marquez vs Alvarado. I wouldn't mind seeing Marquez taking a tune up against Abregu or Khabib either. Ideally, I'd like him to fight someone in the Top 10 at 147, but I don't see that happening.

Marquez won't retire until he's completely shot and KO'd just like his brother. Most fighters leave too late. He had his opportunity to leave at the perfect time.
