Marquez's Manager Still Rejects Idea of Pacquiao 5

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

Mexican manager and trainer Ignacio "Nacho" Beristain is still firmly against a fifth fight between his star boxer, Juan Manuel Marquez, and WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao. Nacho says Marquez will return in November or December but nothing is concrete at the moment.

Pacquiao-Marquez had four tough, physical fights. In 2012 they met for the fought time, with Marquez knocking out Pacquiao in the sixth round.
 
"There are a number of very interesting fights for Juan, but I insist that there is one opponent who I wouldn't want [for Marquez] again - Manny Pacquiao. I do not like that fight, And it is not about money. You don't think [if it was about money] that I would sympathize [with everyone who wants to do a] fifth fight between them, because of the income that I could get? But it is much more than that," Beristain said.

"I do not sympathize [with those who want a] fifth fight between them because of the damage they can do. The four bouts have been grueling, bitter, and a fifth battle would be no exception. Juan Manuel is not going to be [fighting] for much longer, and ideally I would like for him to retire with his health intact......to enjoy his family, and take another path other than training and boxing. He has the right to enjoy his money and his family."

"Another fight between Pacquiao and Juan would be another hellish encounter. It is better for them not to meet again in the ring. Of course, if they offer that fight, it is Juan who ultimately decides. He will know what course of action to take if a fight [offer to face Pacquiao] is looking more concrete."

Nacho is coming clean and ADMITTING that he's scared for the health of his little boy Juan. He knows he'll get another broken nose, probably knocked on his ass again, possibly stopped or decisioned fairly efficiently in a 5th meeting.…

Marquez is a cheat. I can't believe people are actually gloating and happy over that kind of blatant cheating. Should be ashamed to be called boxing fans.
