Team Juan Manuel Marquez: We Want Erik Morales Fight!

Although it has reported that there is still no economic agreement with Golden Boy Promotions, Ignacio Beristain, the trainer and manager of WBO/WBA lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez, has disclosed to the Mexican press that his boxer started training for a possible match with Erik "Terrible" Morales, which has the date of April 9 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Nacho denied published stories that his boxer rejected a fight with Morales, and called them "false reports"

After a Thursday meeting with Golden Boy, Marquez was not happy with the money presented for a fight with Morales. Golden Boy presented two other possible fights, against WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto and WBA 140-pound champion Amir Khan.

Beristain said that he advised his boxer to make the fight with Morales, because he presents the best opportunity to make good money, and it's a fight that all of the fans in Mexico are asking for. He also said they are not going outside of their weight division because they are not going to give any advantages to anyone. At the moment, Nacho says the only fight they would really chase above the lightweight limit is a third meeting with Manny Pacquiao.
