Golden Boy Promotions President Oscar De La Hoya said in an interview to Televisa Deportes, conducted after Sunday's fight between Juan Manuel Marquez and Michael Katsidis,..

..that he is willing to step aside with his company in order for Juan Manuel to secure a third fight with Manny Pacquiao. Golden Boy has a heated feud with Pacquiao's promoter, Top Rank.

''As president of Golden Boy Promotions, I want to make the fight between Pacquiao and Marquez. The problem is that [Top Rank CEO Bob] Arum doesn't want to make the fight if Golden Boy is involved," said De La Hoya.

''There is no way in the world that Pacquio or Arum will want a part of Marquez after watching this, they will hide, but like I said Golden Boy will stay out of the promotions because Arum doesn't want to do business with us. I will do it for Juan, because he deserves it. I won't be part of the promotion for that fight and let Top Rank do the full promotion.''

''Marquez is the best, simple as that. Pacquiao is the fight we want, and the fight that Mexico wants, and the fight the world wants. Marquez is better, is getting stronger at the higher weights, and is faster now. He is like old wine. And Pacquiao most face Marquez in order to get respect from the boxing world because they have unfinished business."
