Ricky Burns Still Aims For a Juan Manuel Marquez Fight

Juan Manuel Marquez's defeat to Manny Pacquiao on Saturday keeps alive the possibility of a fight with WBO interim-world lightweight champion Ricky Burns. Marquez is the holder of the full WBO title at Burns' weight but had moved up to welterweight to take on the legendary Filipino in Las Vegas. Burns decisions Michael Katsidis last week to become the mandatory challenger to Marquez's title.

Burns' trainer Billy Nelson told BBC Scotland: "We would love to fight Marquez but it all depends on what he wants to do. We wouldn't be thinking we'd made it just by getting a bout with Marquez; we'd be there to win it. He might go for a rematch with Pacquiao, he might retire or he might decide to drop back down to lightweight and defend his title.

"If he does defend his belt, then he has to fight Ricky because he has the interim title and is the mandatory challenger."

[QUOTE=S.J. II]Fight Broner you ducking coward.[/QUOTE] Coward? Any fighter that gets in the ring deserves better than that. I'm sure you've proved yourself to be very tough in your bouts. But he needed to move up. He looked huge against Katsidis. It must have been killing him to make 130.

Burns should be thinking of fighting the winner of Rios - Murray instead

if Burns promoter can offer JMM more than $10 million, which is the probably guarantee for a rematch with Manny, then they may have a fight, that is may have a fight... :D
