Pacquiao Vs. Marquez 3

Before Manny Pacquiao talked about his upcoming fight against Juan Manuel Marquez, he made a short sharp remark regarding his potential bout with Mayweather saying: “It comes down to money. He wants too much money for the fight.”

Unquestionable victory

The champion across eight weight divisions, Pacquiao faces his old nemesis in Marquez in three weeks in the third fight between the two which Marquez has repeatedly claimed he has won. Pacquiao wants to put to bed the Mexican’s claims after he felt that he had been ‘robbed’ in the first two fights which both went the Filipino fighters way.

Talking to the media Pacquiao made it clear that he was motivated for the fight, and was prepared for what he called the most important fight in his career. He is hoping his lightening fast hands will gain him a unquestionable victory to shut Marquez up once and for all.

The trilogy of fights have been six years apart, marking some major steps in Pacquiao’s career. However, he still holds a record of 53-3-2 and is well aware that he cannot underestimate his opponent.

Marquez on the other hand is a very versatile fighter holding a very good record of 53-5-1, over the years demonstrating that he has the skill and confidence to apply the sweet science in many different styles.

Pound for pound best

It is already expected that pay-per-view figures for this fight will surpass those of the Pacquiao-Mosley fight earlier this year, which returned 1.3 million buys. However, these figures would be smashed if a fight between Pacquiao and Mayweather would ever come to fruition.

If the two ever get into the ring it would be fight of boxing legends, a fine end to a generation of fighters that pushed boxing further. Boxing fans would love to see the two best pound for pound boxers fight each other and reveal the actual pound for pound best.
