Photos: Juan Manuel Marquez Frenzy, Honored in Hidalgo

By Miguel Rivera & Rene Umanzor

Former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez was honored in Hidalgo, Texas. During a special ceremony, the Mexican superstar received the Key to the City from Mayor Martin Cepeda. Marquez was mobbed for autographs with fans who waited on long lines to get in the building. Fans were hoping to get a glimpse of the man who knocked out Manny Pacquiao in the sixth round of their fourth battle on December 8th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Marquez did not answer too many questions regarding the future of his boxing career. He said "I'm still thinking about it and talking with my family" when asked about another fight. He said a "fifth world title" was the motivation to consider the continuation of his career and "not necessarily a fifth fight with Pacquiao."

[QUOTE=Albeerto;12844333]And Marquez had to chase PAC a few divisions to ko him!!![/QUOTE] Wrong! Marquez had to chase Heredia for his 20 undetectable PEDs.. Without Heredia's 20 undetectable PEDs there is no way Marquez can knockdown Pacquaio let alone ko him.

Great photos of a champion that has ended his career, if it's over, not with a period but an exclamation point. Victory is sweet, but victory over Manny in such a fashion must feel amazing for a champion that has…

A lot of folks are crying foul in that Marquez was juiced. Well, lets asume he was in the same manner Pacquiao was. After all, Pacquiao has been on the suspicion radar for quite a while. The playing field therefore…
