Juan Manuel Marquez, known to be the World Boxing Organization and World Boxing Association super world lightweight champion, is still after a third match against Manny Pacquiao. It is well-known that Pacquiao is far more successful when it comes to the achievements and popularity compared to Marquez. But despite of this, Marquez still wants another try.
Marquez’ first match against Pacquiao was controversial. The decision was a draw after Marquez was knocked down three times. In the second match, Marquez lost in a close split decision. But the Mexican fighter still believes that he is the real winner of the said matches. Marquez seems to have not yet moved on with his losses and is asking for another match against Pacquiao.
In an interview, Marquez stated that he wants a third fight against the Pacman before his career ends. He further stated that it was the desire of his heart to fight against Pacquiao.
Marquez will be defending his title and will be having a rematch with former champion Juan Diaz. The rematch is scheduled on July 31 at Mandalay Bay Resort Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
