A familiar script: Same O Pacquiao-Marquez sequel

By Hermie Rivera
PhilBoxing.com
28 May 2011



The Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez show finally gets going 8 years to the day their contentious draw transpired in the glitter city of Las Vegas.

With contract details ironed out, fans are licking their chops for an exciting conclusion of the daring duo's trilogy --- a boxing match we might never see quite like it again.

Manny and Juan Ma executed excellent fight techniques in their previous fights drawing intense interest that obliged an indispensable third meeting of the bitter rivals.

Pacquiao as you recall downed Marquez thrice in the first round but the hardy Mex stood erect trading blows until their first war ended.

Indeed, Juan Ma's renitence saved him from further harm even as Manny hammered away with all of what's left in his arsenal but came tantalizingly short just the same.

All that aside, questions referred to your Counterman now borders on what Marquez is bringing to the MGM Grand Arena when he lock horns with the undisputed pound for pound champ.

"Can the 38 year old ex-lightweight marvel of Guadalajara withstand Manny's bombs?" asks a lady fighter fan from Indiana, expressing at the same time grave concerns of a Marquez beating like Shane Mosley's May 6th fistic castration by the Pacman.

If Marquez wasn't able to get through Pacquiao's defensive ways then, how can he outsmart the defending champion now who'll be brawling as a full blown welterweight --- catchweight imposition at 144 pounds not a factor in my thinking.

It will even get tougher for Marquez now that the Sarangani phenom is at home ensconced at 145 pounds in beating the likes of Ricky Hatton (138), Oscar de la Hoya (142), Miguel Cotto (144) Joshua Clottey (145) Antonio Margarito (144).

Watch how the bookmakers call the odds when it is offered to the public.

Highly stacked in Pacman's favor like what obtained in the betting cages of the Pacquiao-Mosley bout.

I am at a loss as to how Juan Ma can pull the upset lever in his third attempt to unseat Manny.

Marquez hasn't grown a third arm or leg since last they met has he? I mean, no phenomenal change in his style or capability that's been in display of late. Neither has he added extra strength to his punches.

Ask Juan (Baby Bull) Diaz, Juan Ma's latest prey who's picking Manny to beat his Mexican oppressor handily.

And so with the other boxing stars who'll be out endorsing the Idol's bid shortly.

How Marquez has been able to put himself back in contention to grab the huge outlay for his ring date with Pacquiao is the other difficulty I am trying to figure out.

But this pales in comparison to the humongous problems bedeviling the other match:

"Pacquiao-Mayweather Unmade Fight of the Century"

Two prisoners kept in the pale awaiting trial?

Now figure that one out.
