Marquez: I Hope To Get Pacquiao on May 5, Not in Vegas

By Miguel Rivera

WBO/WBA lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez (53-6-1, 39KOs) is ready to face Manny Pacquiao (54-3-2, 38KOs), the WBO's welterweight king, for a fourth time. Marquez lost a controversial twelve round majority decision to Pacquiao in November.

Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s recent prison sentence of 90-days may open up the May 5th date on HBO pay-per-view. Mayweather had previously reserved the date on HBO, and the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, for a fight with Pacquiao. Last Wednesday Mayweather was given a 90-day sentence for a domestic abuse charge. The sentence starts on January 6th.

Marquez wants to fight Pacquiao on the Cinco De Mayo weekend, but not in Las Vegas, where he doesn't feel the judging will be fair.

"Regarding the rematch with Pacquiao, I hope that it happens on May 5, and I hope they respect my terms - one of which is not to stage the fight in Las Vegas," Marquez said.

[QUOTE=PennyAnd1;11611875][B]So will Pacquiao[/B] you moron.. Like it'll matter. Like I said, most people get caught with urine testing, not blood withdrawal. Tell me one popular athlete who got caught using illegal substance with blood withdrawal technique.:owned2: don't lose some sleep…

Why can't fighters fight at the full weight class rather then catch weights
