Juan Manuel Marquez wants third fight, Manny Pacquiao not interested

After Juan Manuel Marquez beat American Juan Diaz he then called on Manny Pacquiao for another fight. Juan Manuel Marquez is now being touted as a much better foe for the 7-division world champion than Antonio Margarito.

Several boxing scribes expressed their desire to see a Marquez-Pacquiao clash following their fights in 2004 and 2008.

According to the latest report from Philippine Daily Inquirer however, this may not happen soon. Pacquiao’s lawyer Jeng Gacal, said “He’s [Marquez] out of the picture at the moment.” If Pacquiao does ever fight Marquez again, it will be over 140. Gacal says “Manny will find it hard to trim down to 140 now.”
