Trainer Nacho Beristain is sided with his fighter, Juan Manuel Marquez, and disagrees with the idea of staging a fifth fight with Manny Pacquiao. A few weeks ago Marquez (55-6-1, 40KOs) said that he didn't see any reason to fight Pacquiao (54-5-2, 38KOs) for a fifth time.

"I think for me there is no point [in a fifth fight]. We already achieved the desired result. Then why do it? So I also asked several people, several friends that I have around me and they told me not to do it, that there is no point in a fifth fight. I said before the fourth fight that no matter how this fight ends, there can not be a fifth," Marquez said.

Nacho says that he and Marquez have spoken, and the two of them are interested in facing a fighter like Brandon Rios (31-0-1, 23KOs), who would need to beat Mike Alvarado (33-1, 23KOs) in a rematch on March 30th.

"Personally ,I am not convinced by the idea that Juan should fight Pacquiao again. We are interested in facing a puncher, a fighter like Brandon Rios. Juan has planned to hold two more bouts before retiring. Most likely he will fight in September, but the last word belongs to [Top Rank's CEO] Bob Arum" concluded Nacho.

In separate interviews, Arum told BoxingScene that he is confident that Juan Manuel will face Pacquiao in the fall and considers his comments to be "posturing" and a "negotiations" tactic to get the highest purse offer.

[QUOTE=Pinoy4ever]That fight won't happen cause Rios is a young dangerous lion who will outpower Marquez.[/QUOTE] Rios is strong but a limited skilled fighter...JMM would beat him every time. Easy meat for Pac too....unless he can touch Pac's jaw flush but Rios walks straight on, he'll get beat...

[QUOTE=Ido]I dont want to see Pac brain dead or just plain dead when fight #5 settles. Which is why I dont want to see Pac vs Juan V, all together the outcome is clear. On the other hand, Rios or Tim are great opponents. Fights that can be easily managed by uncle Bob. So why not?[/QUOTE] ...
