World Boxing Organization welterweight champion Juan Manul Marquez is reportedly interested in fighting Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios, instead of Manny Pacquiao, over whom he scored a crushing sixth-round knockout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas last Dec. 8.

Trainer Ignacio “Nacho” Beristain claims to have discussed the options with Marquez, with reporting that both the Mexican and his Hall-of-Fame trainer are interested in facing a fighter like Rios, who has a record of 30-0-1, with 23 knockouts.
