Pacquiao running out of Mexican foes

By Eddie Alinea
PhilBoxing.com
18 Nov 2010


LOS ANGELES, CA (via Pera Padala) – Unless the third leg what is conceived a Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez trilogy pushes through, there seems no chance for a Mexican fighter to exact revenge on the Filipino idol, who had beaten nine campaigners from south of the border on the way to establishing himself as the sweet science’s finest pound-for-pound fighter.

Or the newly-crowned World Boxing Council super-welterweight champion defied trainer Freddie Roach’s wish for him to stay as a junior-welterweight and fight one more time as a 154-pounder and face up-and-coming Saul Canelo Alvarez.

With big, hulky Antonio Margarito following the footsteps of those the “Mexicutioner” humbled in emerging as the only man on earth to crown himself world champion in eight weight divisions, only Marquez, whom the “Pacman” barely survived in the second of their two meetings, and Alvarez remain as capable of carrying the torch to avenge the fate suffered by their compatriots.

To make either fight a realization, negotiations must start the soonest possible time or it might be overtaken by circumstances as the southpaw Congressman from Sarangani might suddenly decide to hang his gloves to concentrate his efforts in government service.
Marquez, who owns a draw and a close split loss against the Philippines’ “Pambansang Kamao,” has been aching to face anew his tormentor and, not only try to make even with the Filipino sensation, but, likewise, to avenge the defeats Pacquiao dealt to the likes of Mexican legends Marco Antonio Barrera and Erik Morales.
The three-division belt-holder, in fact, is one of the very few Top Rank chair Bob Arum had mentioned as the most-likely next opponent for Pacquiao, if the price is right, and if Marquez’s handler, Golden Boy Promotions, will agree to the conditions Arum’s outfit will impose.

Alvarez has not been cited as in the same equation as Marquez or even the aging Shane Mosley, but should Pacquiao decides to defend, even for once, his newly-acquired super-welterweight crown, this young, 20-year-old Mexican holder of the WBC junior middleweight silver belt could join the line as one of his would-be next opponents.

Never mind if he is 12 years junior to Pacquiao, who will turn 32 on December 17, but at 5-foot-9, which is only two-feet taller than the Filipino, and being undefeated in 35 fights with 28 knockouts and a draw, Alvarez can be as attractive crowd-drawing wise ring foe as Marquez.

With what could be the most-lucrative matchup against undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. virtually gone pfft, the next most probable scenario that can draw a record attendance and pay-per-view buys is for Pacquiao to complete his trilogy with Marquez.
Arum, after Pacman disposed off Margarito over 12 rounds at the luxurious Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, declared that a Pacquiao bout against either Marquez or Mosley is doable if Golden Boy Promotions will allow him to run the show.
To which GBP Executive Richard Schaefer immediately responded in a statement that sounded favorable to the conditions being impose by Arum.

Only one of the nine Mexicans Pacman sent into oblivion, make it 10 if one will include legendary Oscar DeLa Hoya, an Olympic gold medalist representing the U.S. who has Mexican blood running in his veins;Erik Morales who managed a unanimous decision victory over the Filipino.

Pacquiao, however, avenged that loss on points by technically knocking out Morales in the 10th round in their rematch even as he repeated with a more emphatic KO triumph in their third meeting November 18, 2006.

Barrera, like Morales, bowed to Pacquiao twice, the first via a TKO in the 11th round Nov. 15, 2003 when Manny won the Ring magazine featherweight plum and the second via decision to retain his international super-featherweight crown the following year.

Other Mexicans who succumbed to Pacquiao’s quick and powerful fists were Emmanuel Lucero, KO in third; Hector Velasquez, TKO in sixth for the vacant WBC international super-featherweight; Oscar Larios, decision; and Jorge Solis, KO in eighth.

Gabriel Mira was the first Mexican that Pacquiao fought way back 1999. Mira was stopped in the fourth round in Manny's first defense of the WBC flyweight title.
