Trainer Nacho Beristain is reportedly lukewarm on the possibility of his charge, Juan Manuel Marquez, taking on Manny Pacquiao for a fifth time.

Marquez faces the formidable Mike Alvarado on May 17th with the winner guaranteed a shot at the winner of Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley rematch.

Beristain has told whoever is listening that he thinks the final chapter on that rivalry was written when Marquez landed that right cross on the Pacman to end matters in the sixth round back in 2012.

Beristain was quoted in Boxingscene as saying that the fight "is not attractive." He did say that if Pacquiao beats Bradley that he'll "see what Juan decides."

A lot of conjecture going on here as there is no guarantee Marquez gets past Alvarado. He looked old...damn old...trying to chase down Timothy Bradley in his last match. We'll see if Beristain changes his tune depending on Marquez' showing against the gritty Denver contender.
