Hall of Fame trainer Nacho Beristain is not in favor of sending  Juan Manuel Marquez (56-7-1, 40KOs) over to the United Kingdom to face IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook (33-0, 22KOs).

Marquez is looking to capture another crown at welterweight but is not interested in facing Manny Pacquiao again. A rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr is not in the cards either. Newly crowned Kell Brook, however, would be an interesting challenge for the Mexican legend. 

But the last time Beristain traveled to the UK he left with a bad taste in his mouth. Working the corner of Julio Ceja, he felt his fighter was robbed in a majority decision loss to local favorite Jamie McDonnell. 

Beristain wants a neutral venue if the negotiations between Marquez and Brook begin.
