Former four division champion Juan Manuel Marquez will not allow the provoking words of ​​Ruslan Provodnikov, the WBO's champion at junior welterweight, to bait him into a fight. Marquez is considering a May return in Mexico City, and then he wants the winner of April's WBO welterweight battle between Manny Pacquiao and champion Timothy Bradley, taking place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"[Provodnikov] wants to seize the moment, and it's good to think that way, but I'm not [going to be a stepping stone]. The important thing is to complete challenges, because I want to leave a legacy in boxing. A fight with Provodnikov be a good one but it won't give me any recognition. He's making statements [about me at his] convenience. I'm not afraid [of him], everyone knows it's not out of fear [that I don't want to face him]. I fought the best and I have no fear of anything - or else I would not be in boxing," said Marquez.

[QUOTE=Weebler I]Marquez is still relevant, those guys aren't. Horrible examples. No point using Marquez's age as an excuse either, the guy is WWE'd up and competitively probably has the biological age of someone in their late-20s. Using Tim saying he has a win over Provo isn't kosher either, ...

[QUOTE=Strategic1]Other than pacquiao, and a past prime Barrera, JMM's resume is not that great. The man drank his own piss for 5 or 6 straight fights. The man whines after every close fight. The man in the last 3 or 4 years has ducked Khan, Rios, and Provo. He also ducked Morales in 2006...

[QUOTE=Flaco-N13]Try explaining that to Money May, your fav fighter at the top of your fav fighters list. Who came up with to be the best you have to fight the best. Yet he won't fight old easy Pac-Man. Brutal sport? Mayweather:My health comes first.[/QUOTE] Mayweather? Why even bring up his n...
