Pacquiao-Marquez V: Nacho Will Leave Decision To Juan

By Miguel Rivera

BoxingScene.com reported earlier that Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum has scheduled a Wednesday meeting with Juan Manuel Marquez to discuss a fifth fight with Manny Pacquiao. Last week, Marquez's trainer Nacho Beristain explained that he doesn't see a reason for a fifth fight with Pacquiao, and similar comments have been made by Juan Manuel in several interviews.

Even though there have been four battles, with the last one being won by Marquez with a sixth round knockout, Nacho says there is still a lot of interest in a fifth meeting. While he doesn't like the idea of a fifth fight, he will leave the final decision in the hands of Juan Manuel.

"There is a still a lot of interest in a fight between Juan Manuel and Pacquiao. I'm the one who does not want it for Marquez. It would be a dangerous fight. I have an obligation, as the person in charge of the corner, to look out for my fighter. People think their rivalry has already burned itself out, but there is still a lot of interest. The president of the Philippines put $20 million dollars in the table to take this fight to their country, because Manny's defeat hurt him very much....he is an idol over there and they want revenge," Nacho said.

"With a fifth fight, he might become the highest paid athlete in the history of Mexican sports, but [the offer for a fifth fight might not be] sufficient. In Dubai, a prince is offering him $15 million tax-free dollars to fight an African opponent over there...... there are other offers that are being reviewed. I have always believed that the fighter is the only one who has the right to decide what he wants to do. If he continues in boxing or decides to retire, I have to keep supporting him because he has been with me for 14 years. I will accept whatever he wants to do with great pleasure."

[QUOTE=edgarg;13053168]Glad to see that somebody else on this site saw that video. He certainly tripped, and fell face forward into Marquez' fist which he threw and really didn't know where it would land. Which was why it had so powerful…

How many times both men say "It's the last one no matter what". Roach was so sure it would be Marquez lying face down. Would…

He is. A total idiot. Gotta love the "lucky punch" crowd. They just can't accept that Pac got KTFO fair and square.
