However, I don’t believe also that Pacquiao-Marquez will not happen. I’m sure Marquez is just buying time before he will finally say—‘yes’ in order to gain more leverage to the negotiation table. The more he will say ‘no’ the more offer Arum will bring in front of him.
A lot of Marquez fans were saying that he is a man of pride and not of money and that he will take away his win against Pacquiao to his retirement. Let’s say that is really the case. But still I am sure the fight will happen.
The same pride will pressure Marquez to give Pacquiao the shot for his revenge. Of course, let us not be so hypocrite; let us also include the pressure that the amount of money will bring to push him to fight. This will be the biggest payday of his career. Eight-digit is a good packed-lunch for his retirement.
There’s point or no point, it is either money or pride; bottom line we will be watching Pacquiao vs. Marquez 5 or Marquez vs. Pacquiao 5 (whatever) in September.
