Marquez Explains Why He Picked Bradley over Pacquiao
By Ryan Burton

Shortly after Floyd Mayweather's unanimous decision victory over Robert Guerrero, Juan Manuel Marquez spoke to BoxingScene.com about his decision to face WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley instead of a more lucrative fifth fight against Manny Pacquiao. Marquez feels that his December 8th knockout of the Filipino Congressman more than sealed their series and that there is no need for another fight. He said that he couldn't say why Bradley turned down a rematch against Pacquiao but that he feels an argument can be made for why he won each of his four fights against Pacquiao.

"Everybody has their opinion. To each his own. I don't know why Bradley doesn't want to fight him. I don't know his situation. In my case we have already fought four times and I practically won all four. The first time was a draw, the second time was a split decision and the third time was a majority decision where it was even more clear that I should have won. In the fourth fight I left no doubt as to who won and that cleared up the first three fights," Marquez explained.

Marquez said that while money is important, his legacy and honor are more important and that is one of the reasons why he decided against facing Pacquiao again.

"That is true. Honor comes first. My personal honor and the honor of my people come first. The feeling that I have from that victory is very rewarding. It is something I will keep for me the rest of my life. Money isn't the most important factor," Marquez revealed.

The 39-year-old Marquez said that a world title in a fifth weight class would be very rewarding and would provide the motivation needed to get him to train at the highest level. If Marquez were to capture a world title in a fifth weight class he would become the first Mexico born fighter to achieve that feat. Marquez declined to say where such a victory would place him amongst Mexican all time greats.

"It is another motivation for me. I want a fifth title in a different weight class. It is a great motivation for me that would make me train hard. I would love to achieve that but I need to work very hard because TImothy Bradley is a great fighter. I don't know where I would rank. That is up to you guys," Marquez told BoxingScene.com.

Manny is just a shadow of the past for Juan. Jmm has a valid reason. So pactards just move on and accept that Juan beat Manny in a cold KO!

better luck next time Manny..well, against another hard hitting or much more powerful Rios :biglaugh:

agree with jmm, glory and honor is more meaningful than treasures.

Everybody has a 20/20 hindsight. I'm sure if Pacman won the 4th fight, cry-baby JMM will be begging for a fifth fight and so on and so forth etc. etc... Now all of a sudden he's talking about honor!!! Give me a freakin' break!!! Let's get real...the truth is...JMM is afraid of a fifth fight coz he will be the one lying down COLD face first!!!...or afraid to get caught juicing up...better quit while he's ahead!!! hehehe

Bam Bam Rios has no chance against Pacman albeit it's going to be a very exciting night for fight fans...a lot more exciting than Rigo and Mayweather...IMHO,...pedhater.

agreed, although theoretically pacman should just destroy rios the way he did margorito, it will be exciting to watch lol. and of course, if he loses to rios its time to retire, even roach agrees

But why there was a news that he allegedly overpriced himself $20M for the supposed 5th fight?

And when arum turned it down, suddenly his legacy is more important?

Who cares if he's afraid of fighting Manny again, call him coward, chicken, or something. All it matters for him was when he faced Pacquiao for the forth time, he trained freakin hard for the fight and made sure to knock him out. Luckily, he did. He knocked him out cold and that was the worst night for Pacquiao.
