Juan Manuel Marquez Not Finished Yet

A lot of people around Marquez including his trainer Nacho Beristain, are urging him to hang up the gloves and retire. Marquez, 42, & his promoter, Fernando Beltran of Zanfer Promotions, seem to ignore the advice and looking at a few future opponents. Two possibilities they are looking at is rematch with Mayweather, or IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook.

Marquez continues to nurse his damaged knee which be has been battling this injury for some time. “Right now, we are looking for an opponent. He will continue with his rehabilitation, but if he feels one hundred percent, we already have a range of offers, mainly aiming at the world welterweight title, which he and his team have long been targeting. “He has always spoken of the welterweight title, and there are Kell Brook and Floyd Mayweather. Obviously, we would love to fight Mayweather because while they have fought each already, it took place under very adverse conditions and now things would be different. But, there is also a good chance that we’ll face Brook, who is looking for a big fight in the United States. There are a number of options at the weight.”
