Nacho: Marquez Should Face Pacquiao, Not Bradley or Rios

by Rene Umanzor

Nacho Beristain, the longtime trainer of Juan Manuel Marquez, has advised his fighter to face Manny Pacquiao for a fifth time. Marquez, who turns 40 later this year, will decide the future of his career in the next few weeks. In a recent interview that ran on BoxingScene.com, Marquez expressed his interest in facing WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley or junior welterweight brawler Brandon Rios. But, Marquez says he is not interested in facing Pacquiao again.

There is only one problem, Marquez wants a lot of money for his next fight - and the only opponent who can bring that high number is Pacquiao.

"I think Juan can be well prepared to fight Brandon Rios or Timothy Bradley, but definitely the best fight out there for him is Pacquiao - because he is going to bring a lot of money. Brandon Rios is a very strong fighter but to be very frank - Mike Alvarado is also on the list - but Pacquiao guarantees big profits to the promoter and the fighter. That fight would bring a very substantial purse that benefits everyone involved in the event - and that is something that neither Brandon Rios or Timothy Bradley is able to bring," Beristain said.

Nacho should respect JMM for his choice of Bradley. Not everything should be about money, Mr Nacho. BTW, isn't Nacho the one saying Pacquiao is not an option for Marquez just months ago? What gives?
