Nacho Still Not on Board With Pacquiao-Marquez 5

By Salvador Rodriguez

Nacho Beristain, trainer of former four division champion Juan Manuel Marquez, is still not happy with the idea of facing Manny Pacquiao for a fifth time.

Marquez is facing Mike Alvarado on May 17th. The winner has been guaranteed a shot at the WBO welterweight title, which is going to be contested next week as Tim Bradley defends the belt against Pacquiao in Las Vegas.

Nacho sees no reason for a fifth contest, feeling that Marquez closed that chapter when he knocked Pacquiao out cold in the sixth round of their 2012 fourth meeting.

"I do not like the fight, it is not attractive, and Juan did what he had to do, he showed how the Mexicans get it done, he showed his followers around the world who he is and that's enough. If Pacquiao beats Bradley, we'll see what Juan decides, but again he could have the option of fighting for a different title," Nacho said.

[[email protected];14395825]They are trying to still ride that KO win. Hey Nacho, Marquez cried and cried for years and Pac was always willing to give him rematches, but you guys know, that was a 1 time deal. In a rematch Pac…
