Juan Manuel Marquez vs. Timothy Bradley: Mexican Legend Hypes Boring Fight

By Brian Ethridge, Posted: 06/23/13 05:12PM EDT

Let's face it, the only fall fight most boxing fans are really looking forward to is Floyd Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez. Not too many people really care to see the likely boring boxing match between Mexican legend Juan Manuel Marquez and Timothy Bradley. That's why Marquez is doing his absolute best to promote the bout.

"We both beat Pacquiao, and now we are going to get this settled between Bradley and myself," Marquez said. "Bradley is good fighter. He fights to win. I know what we are both in for on Oct. 12."

"Bradley likes to fight. I like to fight. He has something I want, a title belt. Winning my fifth world title means very much to me and all of the fans in Mexico."

"This is a very tough fight. I am facing an undefeated fighter who has something that I want very much. It is a complicated fight but not impossible to win. I want that fifth world title. Bradley is one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. I think we have the styles to make a great fight."

Marquez is a legend who has won world titles at featherweight junior lightweight, lightweight and junior welterweight. If he happens to defeat Bradley when they face off on Oct. 12, he will win the welterweight title which would make him the first Mexican fighter to ever win world titles in five different weight classes.

That's why Marquez believe that he wants to win just a tad more than his opponent.

"I want this fight more than he does," Marquez said of Bradley. "I want to make history. All of the fans in the arena on Oct. 12 will be on my side."

Anybody who knows the history of either of these two fighters knows that this will likely end up being a boring bout. Both are natural counterpunchers who rarely become the aggressor in their fights. With that said, Both Bradley and Marquez were part of exciting bouts in their last matches, so maybe there is hope that this won't be a snoozer bout after all.
