Top Rank promoter Bob Arum confirms that the 40-year old Juan Manuel Marquez has interest in facing the Manny Pacquiao vs. Tim Bradley rematch winner which mean that if Pacquiao successfully snatch the WBO Welterweight title from the undefeated American boxer, we will expect a Pacquiao vs Marquez 5 otherwise a Bradley-Marquez rematch will happen on September this year. Marquez changes his tune stating that he wants the WBO welterweight title before he retires.
“Marquez really wants only one thing before he retires. He wants to win that [WBO welterweight] title. And he has indicated to us that he would be very available to fight the winner of the Pacquiao and Bradley in the fall…He’s [Marquez] obviously changed his tune [about not wanting to fight Pacquiao again]“, Arum said in an interview with Hustleboss.
At his age, Marquez seems obsessed in taking the fifth division world title as he even willing to fight Pacquiao for the fifth time in order to make this obsession happen. However, it will surely be a difficult path for him to take in facing the Pacquiao-Bradley 2 winner.
