Marquez vows to settle old score

By Hermie Rivera

With doubts or drawbacks finally resolved, the title clash between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Marquez sails on hitchlessly on November 12 at the MGM Grand Arena, Las Vegas, Nevada.

Marquez says this time the issues that clouded their first two fights will be settled for good in his favor.

It took eight years for the third match to materialize.

The inevitable showdown between the gifted warriors had to happen owing to the inability of the promoters to put up the preferred Manny Pacquiao-Floyd Mayweather Jr. deal.

The wait could have been longer if Bob Arum tarried in promoting the next best pair-up available.

Now, Arum is enjoying a leisurely cruise of the high seas south of France aware that that his year-ending trilogy will go unscathed despite ongoing wranglings among warring henchmen. A bunch of hooey?

Going back to the time fans were treated to a draw and a subsequent Pacquiao win, the rubber bout is one vintage fisticuffs both fighters wiil lay all for a possible 2012 run-in with Floyd Junior.

There is no other fistic lure better suited for the purpose
than for either Manny or JuanMa to trade punches with Mayweather assuming Victor Ortiz doesn't pull a damper and upset the Money Man in their September 17 caper.

Pacquiao defends his WBO welterweight title while Marquez tries to find the right blows to reverse his misfortunes against a rival he's never beaten.

Can the game Mexican beat the Pinoy Phenom who's considered one of the outstanding welterweights around? A ring veteran of 56 wars. A warrior who has reached a high degree of excellence since moving up in the heavier weight categories. One who fights clean and not needing at all a 'good behaviour bond' each time he laces up for a brawl.

Getting an early start via a first round knockout in his Cancun tuneup, Marquez is working on battle plans aimed at neutralizing Pacman's troublesome style.

But even with a first round destruction of his Columbian punchbag, Marquez offers little reason for hope in beating Pacquiao. The posted odds attests to a majority of the betting public going for the boxing congressman. Senior Marquez, woefully short of what's expected of an aging challenger stays as the decided underdog.

As he found out early on, it's never easy battling a heavy-hitter from the get-go up till the final bell.

So, the hard-bitten Mex will be placed by the Idol once again in a cramped situation of having to engage fast before the expected time or to dance away with innovative moves from first round troubles.

Juan Manuel must innovate with crafty techniques to surprise Emmanuel or its--- Adios muchaschos hasta lluevo!
