Marquez: No Interest, I Gain Nothing From Provodnikov

By Salvador Rodriguez

Former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez is not paying any attention to the recent statements from Ruslan Provodnikov, holder of the WBO 140-pound title. Speaking with several outlets, including BoxingScene.com, Provodnikov once again challenged Marquez and said the Mexican would show fear by not accepting a fight with him. Marquez is more interested in the winner of the April rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley. He doesn't see any value in facing Provodnikov.

"Provodnikov is a great fighter, he demonstrated that with Bradley. He is very strong, I think the challenge is there, and I have never ignored anyone - but right now I'm at a stage in my career where I want something that helps me in leaving a legacy. I want that fifth championship, and if that does not exist for me then I'm closer to retirement," Marquez said.

"I would gain nothing by fighting with Provodnikov for a title that I already owned. I want something that transcends, for the history of my career and my country. I'm looking to leave a legacy in boxing."

No Bradley, so Retirement time. Enjoy champ, although you should have left the sport after the KO of Pac. Would have been a fitting end to a great career and rivalry.
