MANILA, Philippines – Mexican boxer Juan Manuel Marquez will consider moving to the welterweight division if he does not get a fourth bout against his archrival, Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao.

Pacquiao is scheduled to return to the ring on November 10, and is considering rematches with Marquez, American boxer Timothy Bradley and Puerto Rico’s Miguel Cotto.

Marquez has won world titles at four different weight divisions, most recently at light welterweight.

Officially, Marquez has lost twice to Pacquiao and drawn once, although the Mexican boxer continues to argue that he won all three fights. -- ANC, August 21, 2012.
