Bob Arum of Top Rank says he met with Juan Manuel Marquez to see if he could put together a fifth fight between him and Manny Pacquiao, but Marquez told Arum he wants to see the upcoming fight between Timothy Bradley vs Ruslan Provodnikov and Brandon Rios vs Mike Alvarado before he decides who to fight next.

The current plan is for Marquez-Pacquiao 5 later in the year with both having tough warm up fights before. 

Marquez to face the winner of Bradley-Provodnikov and Pacquiao to face the winner of Rios-Alvarado.

A fifth fight could generate well over 1.5 million buys unless boxing fans are suddenly become tired of seeing Marquez and Pacquiao face each other time after time. Something that will change if the pair meet again will be the purse split. Last time Pacquiao received a reportedly $23 Million to Marquez's $6 Million purse. If they fight again Marquez is said to be demanding $20 million.
