Emanuel Steward Breaks Down Pacquiao vs Marquez III

By Keith Terceira

Veteran trainer Emanuel Steward will be working behind the broadcast booth for HBO on November 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Steward spoke with BoxingScene.com to break down the evening's main event, a trilogy battle between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez. The fight takes place at a catch-weight of 144-pounds, with Pacquiao's WBO welterweight title at stake.

Steward backs Pacquiao, based on sheer size, but he wouldn't be surprised if Marquez secured the upset win.

“That another very interesting fight. I have to go with Manny Pacquiao though because he has the bigger more physical strength. He is about nine or ten pounds larger naturally than Marquez, who I know for a fact that Marquez’s real weight is still not much more than 130 – 132. Before his last fight I was interviewing [him] and he said he had to do a lot of things to get his weight back up to try and make 135. From natural strength I think that Manny is a bit bigger, but the style is going to always be a major problem because, Juan has the perfect style to create a lot of problems for Manny”

“Marquez has good basic fundamentals and his balance is always good! Every time Manny makes mistakes, which his often does , sometimes he runs in getting to overly aggressive and Marquez is always there to take advantage of it. So Marquez will always be a problem for him. To me it’s a compelling fight.”

“This is the one fight that Marquez wanted more than any fight in the world and never thought he would get, so he will be mentally and spiritually very, very, high for this fight. The outcome won’t surprise me either way because one round separates them in the first two fights and that was because of the knockdowns. I do have to go with Manny because of the activity level and the natural strength.”
