Marquez Eyes Fifth World Crown, Fighting Outside The U.S.

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

Former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40KOs) seems very focused on fighting outside of the United States. Because of the taxes involved, he would rather stage his next fight in another country. Venues in Mexico and Macau have been mentioned by promoters Top Rank and Zanfer. Marquez also wants to achieve his dream of winning a fifth world crown, which may steer him away from Manny Pacquiao and right to Timothy Bradley, the WBO's welterweight champion.

"During the month of April I will ultimately decide whether or not I'll stay in boxing. It's a decision that I will make with my family. If I continue to stake active, I will look for fights outside the United States, where they already take away 40 percent of my earnings. Fighters have to pay taxes on each purse, and other expenses. There are a lot of things to pay for, like the salary of the trainer. If you can fight elsewhere, it's better," Marquez said.

"To keep fighting, I want to draw as much attention as possible to win a fifth world title in a different division, I want to go for the welterweight title."

I find it funny how people try to discredit JMM of a championship but the same people turn around and call "legit" other championship belts that were won in worse forms like catch-weights.
