Nacho: Pacquiao 5 Would Be a Hard, Very Difficult Fight

Nacho

By Rene Umanzor

Trainer Nacho Beristain says a fifth bout between Juan Manuel Marquez and Manny Pacquiao is nothing more than a money grab. He says another battle between the two fighters adds no value to the sport, and it ruins the historic ending of the fourth meeting from 2012 - where Marquez finally had his hand raised with a sixth round knockout of Pacquiao.

He feels strongly that a fifth fight would very brutal for both boxers, because Pacquiao would be hungry to get revenge for knockout loss. Top Rank is targeting a date of November 8, in Macau, for a fifth meeting.

"I think it would be unfair to spoil that moment [when Marquez knocked out Pacquiao]. A fifth fight would fail the people because it’s no longer about sports. They know that that fight would generate a lot of money," Nacho said.

"It would be a terrible, hard, very difficult fight because Manny will go for everything, for revenge. I would like them not to fight."

But Pacquiao holds the WBO welterweight title, and Marquez, at 40-years-old, wants to capture a fifth divisional belt before retirement.

"We've talked but he still insists on a fifth title… I think he has every right in the world to try to be the first Mexican to win five titles," Nacho said.

[QUOTE=sterilizer;14590688]IDK about Mayweather being a coward and ducking fights --specifically the Pacquiao fight, which is an irrelevant fight now, since Pacman is way past his prime now, and that brutal KO by Marquez surely affected him negatively for good, both…
