Top Rank wants a 5th Pacquiao-Marquez fight



quote:

Manny Pacquiao could return to action in September, in a card to be held during Mexico's Independence Day weekend, and all signs point to a fifth fight against Mexican Juan Manuel Marquez.

"He's indicated he will fight again. Bob (Arum) has indicated (that it would be) September," said Fred Sternburg, spokesman for Top Rank, Arum's promotion company. "Between the suspension and the election and campaign in Philippines, we think we can do it."

Pacquiao was knocked out by Marquez in the sixth round of their December fight in Las Vegas. The Nevada Boxing Commission suspended the Philippine fighter afterward as dictated by its rules.

Sternburg said a fifth fight could be on the horizon for the fighters, saying that after the economic success of their Dec. 8 card it would be the logical move for Arum's company, as well as both athletes.

"I think they can do it. Bob has stated it over and over. The fight did so well financially, it is a no-brainer," Sternburg said.

Its a no brainer. a 5th fight might make almost as much money as Pacquiao vs Mayweather would have.

Best ending to a fight I've seen in my lifetime.

Pacman is probably still having flashbacks.

If JMM wins, then they'll have to do a 6th fight.
If JMM wins that, then they would obviously need a tie-breaking 7th fight to settle it all

I'm actually down.

I could watch another 5 fights between the 2. I don't even care at this point.

What's the suspended thing about? You get knocked out.. you gotta sit for a while?
