Marquez Says Bradley is in The Running For Next Fight

By Ernesto Castellanos,

Former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez (55-6-1, 40KOs) has confirmed that WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley (30-0, 12KOs) is high on the list for his next fight.

A few days ago published an article where Marquez expressed his desire to capture a fifth world title in a fifth weight division and said the WBO title was his target. He felt the title should have been his in 2011 when he lost a controversial majority decision to Manny Pacquiao. Marquez felt the judges robbed him.

"For a long time Badley's name has been mentioned to fight me, and he should be [mentioned] after gaining that victory on Saturday night," Marquez said.

The Mexican icon will decide his next opponent in April after negotiating with promoters Fernando Beltran and Bob Arum.
