LAS VEGAS. – Two of the best pound for pound fighters, Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 K.O’s) and Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1, 39 K.O’s) kept many words to themselves in yesterday’s press conference, which barely indicates an all-out war between these two on Saturday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
After a total of 36 rounds up to date, all filled with a lot of adrenaline and excitement, these two fighters will once again step into the ring to put any doubts to rest that anyone might have about either of them, and will walk away with the title belt that is sponsored by the WBC, “Champion of the Decade.”
It’s been 8 years now since the first fight between these two boxers, and from an elegant ball room of the city that never sleeps; this is what these two thought of this Saturdays duel.
“On Saturday I need to prove something and I’m ready to do it, and I’m expecting for this to be a great fight with more action and people.
I don’t think of anything else but that,” said the Filipino fighter, who is also a congressman of his homeland.
“Manny knows and I know that this will be the 4th fight, which I have prepared very well for this war,” responded Marquez who also thanked all of the promoters and even Manny who made the effort of making this 4th fight possible.
“I see another sensational fight between these two (Marquez and Pacquiao) just like the previous 3 fights,”said Nacho Beristain when he step up to the microphone.
Fighting on the undercard of this event will be Miguel “Titere” Vazquez against Mercito Gesta for the IBF lightweight belt, and other exciting fights will be Patrick Hyland vs. Javier Fortuna for the WBA featherweight belt, and Michael Farenas vs. Yuriorkis Gamboa for the WBA Super Featherweight title.
