Freddie Roach is Unwilling to have Pacquiao-Marquez 4th Fight

Freddie Roach is unwilling to have a Pacquiao vs Marquez fight for the 4th time.

Roach is reluctant because he saw the way Manny Pacquiao escaped again with a majority decision over his long-time Mexican rival and retained his World Boxing Organization welterweight belt at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

It was a fight that he does not want to do it again, but it looks like they have to.

Bob Arum, the top rank promoter was quick to make a hint that a Pacquiao-Marquez rematch is possible for May 2012, as long as both fighters agree to do it.

Nevertheless, Roach said Marquez is worthy to be given a rematch especially with the competitive spirit he showed the third time he fought Pacquiao.

Marquiz deserves a rematch, said the long-time Pacquiao trainer.

Pacquiao had some good shots but not so great because Marquez took Manny’s punches a lot better this time. That was a close fight and Marquez fought very well.

Roach admited he was wrong in his prediction of a sixth round knockout win for Pacquiao but it was a very competitive fight.

However, Aron said that when a fourth meeting with Marquez is finally arranged, he promised to train Pacquiao harder and better.
