Pacquiao, Marquez vs Vargas or Senchenko on April 2013

Former WBA World welterweight champion Vyacheslav Senchenko or unbeaten welterweight contender Jessie Vargas have are being considered as potential opponents for boxing icons and fierce rivals Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez.

In a television interview on, Mike Koncz said nine names—among them, Timothy Bradley, Senchenko, Vargas—are being eyed to serve as foes for Pacquiao, an eight-division world champion, when he tries to rebound from a sixth round knockout he suffered against Marquez last Dec. 8 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Koncz also revealed that they're looking at staging the fight in Asia (Dubai, Singapore or Macau).

Marquez’s promoter, Fernando Beltran, said in an interview with Boxing Scene that the two fighters are both being considered as possible opponents for Marquez and.

Vargas, a Mexican-American boxer, with a record of 20 wins with nine coming by knockout and 0 losses, is currently being trained by Roger Mayweather.

Senchenko, meanwhile, is a former World Boxing Association welterweight champion with a record of 33 wins against one loss, with 22 knockouts. Senchenko is best known for sending Ricky Hatton to retirement when Senchenko's ninth-round body shot stopped Ricky Hatton last October. He used to be trained by Freddie Roach.

In an interview with Fight Hub TV, Freddie Roach, Pacquiao’s coach, said he would prefer for a rematch with Marquez immediately.
"They’re talking about an April fight... with him and Marquez on the show together against different opponents, and then a rematch in September. That’s being negotiated right now.

The thing is, I don’t really want the tune-up fight. I would rather just go straight into the fifth fight.

I don’t think a guy of Pacquiao’s level needs a tune-up fight. Thing is, he’s going to get right back on the horse.

The first thing he said to me after the fight was, ‘We need to do it one more time’.
That was my favorite fight, because Manny was fighting the best I’ve seen him fight in a long time. We got caught in that fight, but I still think it was a great performance.

The number five is gonna be the biggest seller ever in boxing," Roach said.
Top Rank Chief Bob Arum said it would be great that Pacquiao and Marquez would appoint in tune-up fights as they get ready for a fifth fight during the height of the Mexican Independence Day on September 14.
