Marquez Says Bradley is in The Running For Next Fight

Former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40KOs) has confirmed that WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (30-0, 12KOs) is high on the list for his next fight.
A few days ago BoxingScene.com published an article where Marquez expressed his desire to capture a fifth world title in a fifth weight division and said the WBO title was his target. He felt the title should have been his in 2011 when he lost a controversial majority decision to Manny Pacquiao. Marquez felt the judges robbed him.

The Mexican icon will decide his next opponent in April after negotiating with promoters Fernando Beltran and Bob Arum.
