Marquez Still Undecided Regarding Future, Pacquiao 5

By Miguel Rivera

Former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez is planning to take an extended rest and then he intends to make decision regarding his future. The biggest fight on the table is a fifth fight, on HBO Pay-Per-View, with WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao, and Top Rank is targeting a November date in Macau, China.

Team Pacquiao is ready to accept the fight, but Marquez's trainer, Nacho Beristain, has no desire to see his boxer face Pacquiao for a fifth time.

Marquez has a big decision to make. Last year he turned down the opportunity to face Pacquiao for a fifth time and instead accepted a lower purse to challenge Timothy Bradley, who beat the Mexican icon over twelve. But Pacquiao holds the welterweight crown and Marquez wants to end his career  by winning a fifth divisional title.

Many believe Marquez wants to close the chapter of his Pacquiao rivalry with ending of their fourth bout, which saw Marquez knock Pacquiao out cold in the sixth round in 2012. 

"There are things I have to see, to make a decision on what's going to happen in the future. I know there are strong offers for a fifth fight and the economic aspect is good, but I believe that there are things that are more important than that, things that are more of a sentimental value, the value that one carries within, important things on a mental level and I believe that first I want to rest and then I'll make a decision," Marquez told Golpe a Golpe.

"The money, as we've always said, is an important point, but thank God that I've had a great career we've been taken of from an economic standpoint, and I can sit here with care or concern [to get money]."

I always find ironic Pacquiao fans are the ones trying to accuse other fighters of using PEDs. For many years a good number of people believe that Manny was juiced. MP and his team refused to get better tests and…
