Nacho Prefers Pacquiao-Marquez 5 Outside of U.S. Soil

By Ernesto Castellanos,

Trainer Ignacio "Nacho" Beristain is certainly not on board with Juan Manuel Marquez facing Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao for a fifth time, but he will support Marquez's decision if he decides to take the fight. The fourth meeting took place in December 2012, with Marquez knocking out Pacquiao in the sixth round. If Marquez defeats Mike Alvarado on May 17th in California, he would be in line to face Pacquiao for the WBO welterweight title in the fall.

Nacho doesn't like the idea of the fight taking place in the United States, because of the taxes involved. To eliminate that problem, the fight could always head to Macau, where Pacquiao fought Brandon Rios last November. Certainly Marquez would like to lure Pacquiao to Mexico.

"I do not like that fight being made, and least of all in the United States. If the fight takes place in America, they would both walk away with far less money, because the U.S. Treasury would take away a lot of the money. Economically it does not make sense for Juan, at least under the terms they are offering. I already explained my position on that encounter. Now if the promoters convince Juan [to fight Pacquiao], I am there for him," Nacho said.
