Roach: Pacquiao Wants Marquez in October Showdown

Trainer Freddie Roach says eight division world champion Manny Pacquiao is focused on facing Juan Manuel Marquez for a fifth time in the fall. Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum has stated that four names are being considered for Pacquiao's return, which is being targeted for an October date in Macau, China.

Three of those names being considered are WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, WBO interim-140 pound champion Mike Alvarado, and Marquez. The fourth name is unknown as Arum ruled out Brandon Rios in another interview.

Marquez is requesting a lot of money for a fifth battle and he doesn't appear to be interested in facing Pacquiao for a third time in his last four fights. He would rather go for a fifth divisional title by facing Bradley for the WBO championship.

On the other hand, Pacquiao wants to redeem himself by getting Marquez back in the ring. The Filipino superstar suffered a brutal knockout in the sixth round of last December's fight with Marquez. It was Marquez's first victory over Pacquiao in their four fight series.

"Marquez is the fight we want. And it's still the biggest fight out there. Who else is [Marquez] going to fight and get that kind of money? There is no other fight [where Marquez can make that kind of money]," said Roach.

History might repeat itself... JMM will duck Pac and lose against a lesser boxer and get paid less for it (that is if JMM doesn't get another dose of power pellets, then Bradley will get KtFO)

[QUOTE=turnedup]Apparently you didn't see what was going on before the knockout blow came..I wanted Nacho to stop the fight before the k.o. blow came.
