Pacquiao-Marquez Deal is Close For 12/8, Says Beltran

By Rene Umanzor & Miguel Rivera

According to promoter Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions, a deal is nearly complete for a fourth meeting between Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1, 39KOs) and Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38KOs).

Marquez's position to secure the Filipino star was increased last Friday when Miguel Cotto was unable to reach an agreement with Pacquiao and finalized a deal to fight Austin Trout on December 1.

Pacquiao-Marquez would take place on December 8th. Once again Beltran does make it clear that he doesn't have a contract for the fight.

The two boxers have fought each other three times. All three bouts have ended with controversy. A twelve round draw in 2004, Pacquiao winning a controversial split decision in 2008, and Pacquiao winning a controversial majority decision last year.

"The only reason that I can't guarantee the fight is [happening] is because there isn't a signed contract from Pacquiao in front of us. Nevertheless, in the next few hours we will have it. I can't say anything more because I am being conservative, but I can say that it is 95 percent [done]," Beltran said in a telephone interview.

"Pacquiao knows that he needs to fight Márquez in order to regain his credibility. And even more so after the controversial defeat against [Timothy] Bradley; now he knows what it feels like. It is the opportunity for him to vindicate himself with the boxing world and the opportunity to clearly beat Juan."

Just a serious LOL at all of this.

Well he doesnt really have much choice now does he? Arum isnt going to let him anywhere Mayweather, And fighting Bradley again would not bring in the guarantees that Pacquiao himself wanted.
