Nacho Beristain believes Juan Manuel Marquez would beat Timothy Bradley if Bradley lets Marquez hit him a lot

Juan Manuel Marquez could have benefited from Timothy Bradley not moving and boxing so much in their October fight.

Continuing the comical system of finding excuses for ever having lost a fight, Juan Manuel Marquez's trainer Nacho Beristain says that Timothy Bradley ran and the judges screwed Marquez in October. This isn't anything new, but the quote is so funny it's worth talking about:

"Juan Manuel can beat him, [if Bradley] exchanges. Juan can punch and beat him, but if Bradley runs like he did the last time, then Marquez can't win if the judges do what they did the last time."

Marquez (55-7-1, 40 KO) lost to Bradley. It's just that simple. Sure, I guess if Bradley (31-0, 12 KO) had stood still and let Marquez hit him a ton, it might have gone the other way. That's a thought, I guess.

You may recall Marquez running from Pacquiao in his two losses and draw against Manny. (He didn't run. I'm making a comical point. Bradley didn't run, either. Get it? #greatwriting)

I'd like to see the rematch, though. Why not? It was a good fight, and I do think Marquez and Nacho can make some adjustments and perhaps win the rematch even if Bradley fights exactly the same. And he'd probably adjust, too. I'd be interested.
