Roach: Marquez Was The Best Option For Pacquiao

Trainer Freddie Roach is disappointed that Juan Manuel Marquez has no interest in a fifth fight with Manny Pacquiao, who is scheduled to return on April 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Pacquiao and his promoter, Top Rank's Bob Arum, tried to convince Marquez to accept a fifth meeting. The Mexican superstar continuously said he was not interested.

After three unsatisfying endings, Marquez wants to close their rivalry with the sixth round knockout that he scored in the fourth fight in 2012.

Now Pacquiao will either face Ruslan Provodnikov or Timothy Bradley, who holds a controversial split decision win over the Filipino fighter.

"I think it would have been a good fight, but [Marquez] said no, and that makes me a little sad because we know that was the best fight out there for Manny. Personally, [between our two choices] I think a fight with Ruslan is better. Bradley would be difficult because he boxes well. I personally saw him winning that fight against Marquez. He is fast, knows how to fight and a rematch is necessary. I thought [Pacquiao] beat Bradley [in their fight], but the scorecards didn't agree," Roach said.

I don't know if I've ever seen a trainer do more damage to his fighter, just by opening his mouth, than Freddie Roach has to Manny Pacquiao in the last couple months. Every time this idiot opens his mouth it looks bad on Manny and I don't know if he realizes it or not. First there was that...

[QUOTE=HeroBando]You mean in your circle of alts? Cause normal boxing fans and casuals would swallow that up. It was #1 most anticipated fight of 2013 in an ESPN poll. Cause you know, fans like exciting fights and FOTY follow ups[/QUOTE] My circle of Alts? Im not an ALT buddy... im the sa...

I dont want to see this **** again. We seen this fight 4 times already. Each needs to do something else to make a 5th fight interesting. Pac has been sidelined for years now while mayweather keeps chugging along. Fight someone not named Marquez already
