Trainer Nacho Beristain says that Juan Manuel Marquez (56-7-1, 40 KO's) is thinking of picking one of the other welterweight champions to fight next instead of WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao. This is bad news potentially for Bob Arum of Top Rank because he was really counting on Marquez agreeing to a 5th fight with Pacquiao. It would have brought Pacquiao back up to 1 million pay-per-view buy level, if only for this one fight.
