Pacquiao and Marquez standing side by side to promote yet another grudge match.
Let's say Pacquiao gets revenge and Marquez wins a thrilling Fight of the Year shoe-in against Rios, what then? Pacquiao-Marquez V? Not so fast.
Marquez turns 40 next year and Pacquiao has been through enough. Both fighters have given this sport enough memories to talk about for a very long time.
While a fifth fight would be of interest, it's hard to not feel this is the proper ending. Let both men go out on wins versus someone else and then leave the sport with enough respect for their bodies not to fight again.
Marquez, even in victory, banged himself up pretty good. The type of knockout Pacquiao suffered has professionals such as Floyd Mayweather Sr. questioning what he has left.
If these two should fight again, it should be a final match. Sugar Ray Robinson fought Jake LaMotta six times during their famous rivalry, but the majority of those times were during their younger years.
Pacquiao and Marquez are no longer young men. They're aged kings of the squared circle who deserve to go out on their thrones rather than on their shields.
