Watch: What It Is Like To Fight Juan Manuel Marquez

Published On December 24, 2015 | By Niall Doran | Boxing News

For anyone thinking about fighting 42 year old Mexican great Juan Manuel Marquez in 2016, we found this video online that might make them think twice, at least about perhaps thinking he is over the hill, as he doesn’t look finished quite yet.


Marquez had been linked with a possible fight with the UK IBF welterweight world champion Kell Brook in 2015 but for different reasons, the fight never became a reality.

Indeed Marquez has not fought now since winning a unanimous decision over Mike Alvarado back in May 2014, but he might not be done with prize fighting it seems, just yet.

Ever wondered what it’s like to step in the ring with a professional boxer, or in this case, a decorated world champion and future hall of fame member?

Well, the following video that has emerged shows perhaps just a small bit, of what it would be like, where Marquez can be seen opening up some full on combinations on a rather unfortunate camera man.

He certainly looks like he’s still got it!
