Pacquiao, Marquez Could Be Ordered To Fight a 5th Time

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

According to World Boxing Organization President Francisco "Paco" Valcarcel, the stage could be set for a 2014 battle between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez - if both boxers win their upcoming fights. Pacquiao and Brandon Rios will fight for the WBO's International welterweight title on November 23rd in Macau, China. And Marquez will challenge WBO welterweight champion Timothy Bradley on October 12th at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

After knocking Pacquiao out in the sixth round of their fourth meeting last September, Marquez has rejected the idea of facing him for a fifth time.

"If Marquez and Pacquiao both win, the World Boxing Organization regulations would view the Filipino as [the mandatory] challenger to Juan Manuel. Pacquiao goes against Rios for the WBO International title, while Marquez will attempt to capture the world welterweight championship of the WBO from Bradley. If both win the bout between them would be ready, but of course, the fighters have the last word," Paco said.

[QUOTE=JoeKidd;13695244]Close the book on this one. It's becoming like Floyd-Pacquiao. If the guy doesn't want to fight, MOVE ON![/QUOTE] You gotta give Pac some closure man. I mean c'mon if JMM thinks he could beat Pacquiao, why not fight him?…

[QUOTE=Marvellous1;13694240]If this is soo true, why are Pacquiao, his team and most rabid of fans screaming for a 5th fight? [/QUOTE] Because it's obvious JMM was beaten in that fight, before that 1 punch.

At least JMM had balls to fight him four times. Mayweather had to come up with millions of excuses to avoid the Pacman. Very embarrassing.

[QUOTE=lowblows420;13697255]marquez would get his a55 beat again unless he can pull of another lucky phantom punch...I give him full credit for the knock out cuz he did it hurt and with a broken nose and fractured jaw[/QUOTE] Marquez will stop…
