Hall of Fame trainer Nacho Beristain would like to see his famous student, Juan Manuel Marquez (55-7, 40KOs), defeat WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley in a rematch and then retire from the sport after two more fights.
Marquez, 40-years-old, was close to retirement after knocking Manny Pacquiao out in the sixth round of their fourth meeting in December 2012. Marquez decided to come back for an October shot at Bradley, who picked up a twelve round split decision win. Marquez and Nacho believe the judges robbed them with Bradley.
Marquez would like to have two more fights in 2014, according to the boxer's promoter Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions.
"Juan Manuel can beat him, [if Bradley] exchanges. Juan can punch and beat him, but if Bradley runs like he did the last time, then Marquez can't win if the judges do what they did the last time. If he wins [over Bradley], I would like to see him fight two more times and then that's it. I have always said that I'll follow Juan Manuel to hell. I can only advise him and then he makes the decisions, but he always listen to me and we've always had good results," Marquez said.
