Marquez Waits on Confirmation of 4th Pacquiao Showdown

By Ernesto Castellanos,

Nacho Beristain, the manager and trainer of WBO 140-pound champion Juan Manuel Marquez, says his boxer will receive word in the next few days on whether or not a fourth fight with Manny Pacquiao will actually happen.

If they actually fight in November, Nacho and Marquez are staying firm that fourth meeting will take place in Dallas, Texas. He says Juan Manuel has no problem with taking the fight in Texas, where he believes the officials are more reliable. They refuse to face the Filipino star in Las Vegas, where the first three battles took place.

"They are going to provide Juan Manuel with some news regarding this matter in the coming days," Nacho said.

Nacho and Juan Manuel will begin working in the gym to make sure they stay sharp. They will strengthen their preparation as soon as something definite comes down.
