Pacquiao vs Mosley is Next, Says Marquez's Trainer

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Nacho Beristain, trainer and manager of WBO/WBA lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez, doesn't have much hope that Manny Pacquiao will select his boxer as the opponent for April 16 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Marquez is under consideration for the date, but ex-champion "Sugar" Shane Mosley is the recognized favorite to get selected by Pacquiao and his promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank.

Arum is going to arrive in the Philippines by December 14. He hopes to finalize an opponent by the time he returns to the United States. Beristain sounds confident that Pacquiao will choose Mosley for April.

"I think the next fight is going be Pacquiao vs. Mosley, but Arum could make himself a great asset to our sport if he were to give Juan Manuel a third fight at super lightweight [140-pounds]," Beristain said.
