Pacquiao says he’ll take care of Marquez
Manila Bulletin, Dec. 9, 2005
By nick giongco

BY THE time Manny Pacquiao reports for training at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood on Tuesday (Monday in the US), there would only be a little over 40 days to get him in razor-sharp form for the rematch with Juan Manuel Marquez set Feb. 26 in glitzy Las Vegas.


A few days before he jumps into the ring, Pacquiao would already tapering off in his training, meaning the week prior to the actual bout, he’d no longer be doing heavy workout.

While Marquez has already stepped up in his preparation, Pacquiao has yet to begin serious work and this has alarmed several boxing personalities in the country.

But Pacquiao believes he can get the job done because he has Marquez’s number.

"Huwag kayong mag-alala. Ako ang bahala", ("Don't worry I will take care of things") said Pacquiao before boarding the Philippine Airlines jet bound for Los Angeles last night. He was joined in the trip by training assistant Buboy Fernandez, who is going to look after him day in and day out.

When they locked horns last year at the MGM Grand, Pacquiao sent Marquez down thrice in the first round but the Mexican miraculously survived the onslaught and managed to hold the Filipino southpaw to a 12-round split draw. Pacquiao remains confident of knocking the World Boxing Association and International Boxing Federation featherweight crowns off Marquez’s head.

Trainer Freddie Roach has said many times that Pacquiao is one of the most hardworking people in his gym on Vine St. in Hollywood.

"He event wants to work out on Sundays," said Roach, who was in the country last year when Pacquiao fought Thailand’s Fahsan 3K Battery.

The MGM Grand is the front-runner to host the rematch, although the all-suites Mandalay Bay also on the famed Strip, which is nearby the MGM, is also in the running, according to Pacquiao’s business manager, Rod Nazario.

There is a news going around that Feb. 26 is also the fight date for cotto/corley, and that Pacman/JMM2 will be in the same card. Problem is Top Rank is now scouting for a venue in Puerto Rico and if the fight will be held in Puerto Rico, Pacman/JMM2 may not be included in the card. Many fight fans, including myself, are now confused because Feb.26 is reserved for Pacman against JMM or any fighter acceptable to HBO. And to further complicate the situation, when you check the boxing sched at HBO, it only shows the January fight sched.

chicken is the keyword there bro... look at the events long before the fight supposedly on feb. 26. after jmm fought manny last year, he told us he will not give a rubber match for manny. and then now when manny became the number 1 contender for his ibf title, he makes an issue out of the purse. too may reasons, too many excuses... it is clear that he does not want to fight manny again...
