By Jhonny Gonzalez

At age 36, double world champion Rafael Marquez (39-6, 35KOs) knows that his career in the ring is getting close to the end. He returns on July 16 in Mexico, co-headlining a big show with his older brother, Juan Manuel Marquez. He hopes to finalize the details for a planned fight against WBC super bantamweight champion Toshiaki Nishioka in October, but also wants a rematch with Juan Manuel Lopez and a future showdown with Yuriorkis Gamboa.

"I think I have two years left of being at the top level in boxing. I rewatched my fight with Juan Manuel Lopez and I feel that I was able to beat him. Beyond thinking about retirement after that unexpected defeat, I think that I should work better to win those kind of fights. I'm taking my next fight very seriously because next [is a fight] with Nishioka for the world championship and then a rematch with Juanma or even a fight with Gamboa," Marquez told Sal Rodriguez.

Still an entertaining fighter. Hopefully we'll see him come back better than he was in the Lopez fight.

[QUOTE=puga]here's another quitter right here....lol....[/QUOTE] Always had much resspect for Rafa but he sid quit againts Lopez so it does not make sense for him to say he could have won that fight if he quit.
