Marquez: Tim Bradley Fight is Like a Rematch To Me

By Rafael Soto

Mexican star Juan Manuel "Dinamita" Marquez (55-6-1, 40 KOs) is still steaming over his 2011 decision loss to Manny Pacquiao. Marquez avenged the controversial loss with a sixth round knockout of Pacquiao in 2012 - but the WBO welterweight title was only at stake in 2011. Before their fourth meeting happened, Pacquiao lost the title to Tim Bradley.

On October 12th at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Marquez will get a second chance to capture that WBO title when he faces Bradley (30-0-1, 12 KOs).

"We are closing out [our training camp]. It was a great preparation in terms of strength and speed, but this time we focused more on speed than strength because it was required for this opponent. The main motivation in this fight is winning a fifth title in a different division. I want to take what the judges refused to give me in 2011...in the third fight with Pacquiao. It's like a rematch to win the title. We want to win a fifth world title in our fifth weight division. We want to leave that in our legacy," Marquez added.

"Bradley is a great fighter, and he is undefeated and a world champion. There is respect for him, but in the ring that respect will be tossed aside and I will beat him."

[QUOTE=The Weebler I;13802494]Well he's currently officially 2-1 down against Pacquiao. Did he take the big money fifth fight to avenge his record when offered? The best result for boxing would be a clean Timothy Bradley victory. Then he would fight…
