Juan Manuel Marquez’s camp has upped the ante for the Mexican to accept a fourth fight with Filipino boxing superstar rival and the current pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao.
After Juan Manuel Marquez declared that he preferred Mexico to be the venue of a possible May 2012 meeting with Manny Pacquiao of the Philippines, here comes his trainer Ignacio ‘Nacho’ Beristain demanding a sky-rocketing purse for the best Mexican technical fighter today.
“25$ million on the table,” said Beristain from his famous Romanza Boxing gym in Mexico City.
Top Rank’s Bob Arum, who promotes both Pacquiao and Marquez, signified his intention on his plan to stage a fourth and possibly the final fight between the two great boxing rivals Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez in the wake of the Filipino’s controversial majority decision win over the Mexican last week at MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA in their WBO Welterweight Championship.
Beristain pointed out that the mere fact a fourth fight is being proposed about meant that Juan Manuel Marquez could have been overlooked as the likely winner the last time.
