some people just never have enough

never enough mansions, cars, jewelry

a man must know when to retire despite the money that can still be made and have a good finance plan so that he can live a comfortable life without the regular million dollar paydays

I praise Lennox Lewis for retiring at the right time

unfortunately, I'm afraid Marquez will probably be enticed to fight on by Bob Arum

it's not a fact, it's an excuse

If he ants to finish on a high. This could be the time to do so.
But if he wants to see if he can generate some sales, then he should carry on. But is WW the division to do this. There probably are some fighters who will be a good match up. He doesn't need to take the risky fight. Unless it's a big pay day

No. He should give Pacquiao a rematch. Pacquiao gave him several rematches.

I think it would be poetic for that punch to be the last he ever throws as a professional fighter.

What say you?

You said it my friend.

He will never top that. Time to walk into the sunset

Pacquiao gave him rematches because nearly everyone under the sun thought marquez won most of there fights,he wanted a definitive end to there rivalry and he got one, just not how he hoped itd end.

Marquez has enough left to beat timothy bradley and hopefully garcia personally would love to see him vs mathysse or rios and win an absolute war then call it quits.

if he retired now id be gutted to see him go but hes more than earned it if he chose to.

I think he'd handle Garcia. Bradley, I'm not so sure. Bradley's a very talented boxer and very intelligent in the ring. Not a great style matchup for JMM.

HELL to the NO. He's got an easy $20M payday sitting on the table if he faces Pacquiao again. Hell at this point he could even rematch Mayweather.

I bet you the people who voted yes are the younger crowd who don't yet work for a living and the people who voted no are the older crowd who do earn a living and can appreciate the extra 10 million in cash.

With his improved physique ????
He can knock out anybody at WW and down, he should try to unify LWW / WW
to become first Mexican who won belts in 5 different classes.
He still has 2 years (4-5 fights) left in him.
