Ariza is Dreading Marquez 4: Pacquiao Has To KO Him!

By Rick Reeno

Strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza is dreading the fourth fight between Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38KOs) and Juan Manuel Marquez 54-6-1, 39KOs). The fight was finalized last week for December 8th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Pacquiao is 2-0-1 after three controversial battles. After the fourth fight was announced, Ariza has not received the same type of feedback as he did for last November's trilogy.

"I'm dreading it. I just think it's very hard to get up for another fight like that. Nobody really cares about it. You hear the buzz in the casinos....people are like 'wow, really, out of all the guys that are out there at the 147, 140-pound divisions - that's the only guy you can come up with,'" Ariza told BoxingScene.com.

Another big worry, says Ariza, are the officials. Both Ariza, and Pacquiao's trainer Freddie Roach, believe the judges are going to be more sympathetic to Marquez, a fighter that many people believe was the rightful victor in at least one or even two of the three previous meetings.

"I think Manny knows that he has to knock him out for this fight. I think we go into this fight down three rounds, I really believe that. It can't be another close fight. I don't think that we'll get another decision like that," Ariza said.

I think the entire boxing community is dreading this fight.... as it is completely pointless.
