Marquez: If No Pacquiao Trilogy, Then Maybe Zab Judah

By Jhonny Gonzalez and Ernesto Castellanos,

WBA/WBO lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez just finished up a workout at the Romanza Gym in Mexico and discussed his future plans. Marquez has a sole goal in mind - a trilogy fight with Manny Pacquiao. If Marquez is unable to land Pacquiao, then he wants to chase the dream of winning a fourth world title in his fourth weight division.

"If Manny Pacquiao decides not to fight me, I have other goals in boxing. The main one is to get my fourth world title in a fourth division. Several of us [from Mexico] have won three titles in three different divisions, but winning that fourth title is not easy and many have failed with that attempt. But, I hope to have another fight with Pacquiao, and make history in boxing with a fourth crown at super lightweight," Marquez said.

If a Pacquiao fight comes together, Marquez would love a catch-weight of 143-pounds. He says 143 is a perfect weight, but in 2009 he weighed 142 for a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. and said the weight "was too much." If he can't reach a deal with Pacquiao, he might target a summer return against IBF junior welterweight champion Zab Judah.

"If I get another fight with Pacquiao, I would like an agreed upon weight of 143-pounds. At this weight I feel great. Now, if there is going to be a junior welterweight championship fight, then I would like for it to be against Zab Judah," Marquez said.

He needs to fight Morales. It is clear that Morles earned his shot at Marquez, i think Marquez might be scared of morales.
