Ariza: Pacquiao Should Finish Marquez in Five Rounds

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

Mexican legend and three-time world champion Juan Manuel Marquez is ready for his clash with former WBA world champion Likar Ramos of Colombia in Cancun, Mexico on Saturday.

Marquez who is using the Ramos fight as a tune-up for his much-awaited trilogy with pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao wound up his training camp at the Romanza Gym and said “I’m ready for this fight.”

Marquez who engaged Pacquiao in two close and controversial title fights, salvaging a draw in the first and dropping a split decision in the rematch indicated his focus is really on the Pacquiao fight when he told boxing writer Gabriel Cordero that he had a good workout which filled him with “joy and confidence to find the best condition for the fight against Pacquiao.”

Marquez who was accompanied by Hall of Fame trainer Ignacio “Nacho” Beristain said he would beat Ramos and then start training for the Pacquiao fight after a short break.

The WBC lightweight champion reiterated “I have dreamed of this fight (vs Pacquiao) for many years.”

Pacquiao’s strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza told BoxingScene.com/Daily Inquirer that Marquez could dream but “the fight will not last more than five rounds” and Pacquiao will stop the Mexican and effectively shut his mouth since he’s been claiming that he won both fights against Pacquiao but the judges didn’t give it to him.

The Marquez-Ramos showdown and the WBO flyweight title fight between former two-time world light flyweight champion Brian Viloria and “Pingo” Miranda will be telecast back-to-back by TV5 and Aksyon TV from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. with both fights telecast on AKTV from 6:30 p.m. onwards.
