Intangibles

What motivates Marquez? He has already semi-retired and returned. He rejected a fifth fight with Pacquiao -- along with the big money that comes with it -- and accepted a tough opponent for less money. His mind is a mystery. Does he still have the desire to take on new challenges at the sport's highest level, or is the rumor that he might retire after this fight a sign that his edge has dulled? This fight would seem to mean much more to Bradley, who can finally silence his critics with a win and set himself up for a string of huge fights. We know he's all-in. What about Marquez?

Advantage: Bradley

-- Bernardo Pilatti
