Marquez Felt Pacquiao Looked Good in Bradley Victory

By Salvador Rodriguez

Former four division Juan Manuel Marquez liked what he saw last Saturday night in Las Vegas, when Manny Pacquiao recaptured the WBO welterweight title with a twelve round unanimous decision over Timothy Bradley at the MGM Grand. Marquez returns on May 17th against Mike Alvarado at the Forum in Inglewood, California.

"I thought Pacquiao looked good. I thought he looked fast, strong. I think he was a little more cautious, but I thought he looked good with speed, good boxing, which he's shown in his previous fights," said Marquez.

If Marquez wins next month, he would be in line for a fifth fight with Pacquiao at the end of the year, but the Mexican icon is only focused on Alvarado right now.

"I do not know yet. I have a big fight on May 17, and I have to meet that commitment first. I know it's a natural fight to do [with Pacquiao], but first we have to walk before we start running," Marquez said.

[QUOTE=sterilizer;14444687]I guess you didn't watch the 4th fight in its entirety. FYI Marquez had already knocked Pac down earlier in the fight with a furious right, and Pac was even walking backwards away from Marquez, so he didn't get that…

[QUOTE=ailicec;14444239]Just like the one PACKY landed on Hatton. Explain the DIFFERENCE?[/QUOTE] The difference is that it took jmm almost 40 rds to do that. Hatton was on the floor in the 1st rd and sleeping in the next rd.
