World Press Tour Update: Next stop New York-New York
05 Sep 2011

Juan Marquez left town yesterday for a continuation of the hoopla drumbeating his ring date with Manny Pacquiao.

On to New York City, Mexico City, Los Angeles and back to Manila for Manny's training grind.

Tickets for Pacquiao-Marquez World Boxing Organization welterweight 12 rounder at the MGM Grand
Arena in Las Vegas is going out fast but Bob Arum says an extra 20,000 additional stubs are now on sale.

More than seven years on the shelf after failing to nail a third war, the gutsy Mex finally got his way to box the Pacman in a
a face-off akin to what the rivals dexterously provided in their previous barn-burners.

Their previous two best sellers brought in the crowd and a decent take at the pay per view till.

Now the final leg might turn out to be a dandy comparable to one of the greatest if not the greatest trilogy in boxing history---'Thrilla In Manila---Ali vs. Frazier---circa 1975.

A determined Marquez wants it right this time that traps for the favored Pacquiao are being laid out by his cadre of trainers led by Nacho Berestain. This, obviously to gain not only a clear edge but to fine tune knockout possibilities which to some is the only ticket JuanMa can avail of to dislodge the gritty pound for pound champ.

Bob Arum, the wily promoter of Manny Pacquiao has an unsolicited advice for the Mexican challenger if the short route is
their way of snaring November 12th title go: "Just like in baseball, one finds it difficult to go for an outright homerun (knockout.)

The thing is to go for singles and home runs can happen once you hit the right pitch."

Really now Uncle Bob., bats are disallowed in the ring with or without excessive tars and other illegal substances.
