Pacquiao, Marquez Could Be Ordered To Fight a 5th Time
By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com
According to World Boxing Organization President Francisco "Paco" Valcarcel, the stage could be set for a 2014 battle between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez - if both boxers win their upcoming fights. Pacquiao and Brandon Rios will fight for the WBO's International welterweight title on November 23rd in Macau, China. And Marquez will challenge WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley on October 12th at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.
After knocking Pacquiao out in the sixth round of their fourth meeting last September, Marquez has rejected the idea of facing him for a fifth time.
"If Marquez and Pacquiao both win, the World Boxing Organization regulations would view the Filipino as [the mandatory] challenger to Juan Manuel. Pacquiao goes against Rios for the WBO International title, while Marquez will attempt to capture the world welterweight championship of the WBO from Bradley. If both win the bout between them would be ready, but of course, the fighters have the last word," Paco said.

[QUOTE=Marvellous1;13694240]If this is soo true, why are Pacquiao, his team and most rabid of fans screaming for a 5th fight? [/QUOTE] Because it's obvious JMM was beaten in that fight, before that 1 punch.Comment by Cgarcia on 08-30-2013
At least JMM had balls to fight him four times. Mayweather had to come up with millions of excuses to avoid the Pacman. Very embarrassing.Comment by Reloaded on 08-30-2013
