Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez for the fourth time? Well, a boxing website reported today it is already close to being sealed. According to the report from boxingscene.com, promoter Fernando Beltran of the Mexico-based Zanfer Promotions said Pacquiao-Marquez IV is slated to take place on December 8.
The remaining stumbling for the fight being finalized, Beltran said, is the lack of a signed contract from Pacquiao himself. “The only reason I can’t guarantee the fight is [happening] is because there isn’t a signed contract from Pacquiao in front of us. Nevertheless, in the next few hours we will have it,” Beltran told boxingscene.com’s Rene Umanzor and Miguel Rivera.
Beltran, for his part, is confident that Pacquiao-Marquez 4 will soon be set in stone. “I can’t say anything more because I am being conservative, but I can say that it is 95 percent [done],” Beltran said.
So, let’s just wait and see if this fight will materialize. I’ll post more updates so watch out for it!
