Marquez, Bradley eager to put Pacquiao behind them

BEVERLY HILLS, California— Juan Manuel Marquez could have fought Manny Pacquiao for a fifth time. Timothy Bradley could have had a rematch with the Filipino congressman.

They both turned down chances to follow up on the biggest victories of their fighting careers. Instead, they want to face each other.

Marquez and Bradley will meet in a welterweight title bout Oct. 12 at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas after both men rejected bigger paydays against Pacquiao.

Yet Pacquiao loomed over the fighters’ announcement at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Thursday.

Marquez knocked out Pacquiao last December, and the Mexican champion wants to savor that feeling for a while after failing to win their first three matchups.

The unbeaten Bradley says he will finally get the respect he deserves by trouncing Marquez.

    This article is already 4 days old and there are only 22 comments plus this one. This only shows that Marquez-Bradley fight is not a crowd draw. People is not interested in watching who is the better back-pedal between the two.

  • Lemuel Vargas

    If Juan Manuel Marquez loses his fight with TImothy Bradley, think he will again say that the Bradley camp cheated him for the loss especially if this fight becomes close. What do the commenters think of this observation? Credible or not?

  • Noel

    From the world’s number boxing champ, Manny Pacquiao is now being ignored. Masakit iyan. Lumalabas na laos na talaga si Manny.

  • Nick_Fury

    This is going to be an exciting fight two back pedal style boxers trying to see who among them will be the aggressor plus who will reign supreme between a boxer who is on a vegan diet or a boxer who is in peds.
