Marquez Won't Take Risk of Judges Giving Pacquiao a Win

By Miguel Rivera

After four tough fights, former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez will not take a risk in facing Manny Pacquiao for a fifth time. He believes the judges robbed him of a win in their first three meetings. All three of the outcomes were controversial, with a draw in the first meeting and two close decision wins for Pacquiao in the rematch and trilogy outings. In the fourth fight, in 2012, Marquez knocked Pacquiao out cold in the sixth round.

Marquez is undecided on his boxer future. If he decides to return in 2015 for a fight or two, he says Pacquiao will not be a part of his plans.

"We had a good win [in the fourth fight] and if we face him again we run risk of having a close fight and then the judges are going to favor him, so I don't see a lot of sense [in facing him again]. We won the first three, and we won the fourth. I think we already demonstrated what we intended to demonstrate," Marquez (56-7, 40KOs) said.

"If we feel good [after a few weeks of training], by January we are going to reveal if we are going to continue or not. It would be nice to have a fifth [divisional] title, but I am not obsessed with that. Right now I could walk away [from boxing] very quietly. We have to evaluate our physical form and the opinion of family is also important."

[QUOTE=HeroBando;15029193]Any of the 3 fights could have gone either way, as the press scores will show. If Matquez is not ready to retire, theres no better fight for him. By far the most lucrative, for a welter belt (his reason…

[QUOTE=Pigeons;15029157]Marquez's comments make sense. He is 4-0 with 1 KO vs. Pacquiao, but the official records list him at 1-2-1. That has to be a horrible feeling. Marquez has power but he is not a KO artist. Marquez can win…
