Juan Manuel Marquez on Possible Robbery, Rafael's Loss

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

At the Romanza Gym in Mexico, four division world champion Juan Manuel Márquez (54-6-1, 39KOs) continues to train hard for his scheduled fourth meeting with Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38KOs) on December 8 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Marquez has been pretty vocal over the years regarding the three outcomes in his trilogy with Pacquiao. He felt the judges in Las Vegas robbed him in all three fights.  

He wanted the fourth fight to take place somewhere other than Vegas, but it didn't work out that way. Now he wants to knock Pacquiao out and do everything in his power to avoid the possibility of the fight reaching the judges.

"We tried to get this fight outside of Las Vegas, because the three times we faced him there I was robbed - first with a draw and two by decision. There was talk about fighting in Texas or Mexico City. Finally the fight could not be removed [from Las Vegas]and again it's going to be in Nevada," Marquez said.

"Certainly they will not appoint the same judges who robbed me in the last fight...I guess. Anything can happen if the fight reaches the distance. This time I'm going to fight in a way that will certainly erase any doubts [on who the winner is]. It's going to be very difficult to rob me in the fight. The strategy will be to look for a knockout."

"Look, I'm going to go out and do my job, and we'll see what happens. The Nevada Commission designates the judges....I have no say. If I get robbed again...I don't know...we would have to examine it from a legal aspect."

Marquez also gave his take on the recent TKO defeat of his younger brother, Rafael Marquez, who was stopped last Saturday in nine rounds by countryman Cristian Mijares. Following the fight, Rafael complained that he was suffering severe stomach issues two weeks prior to the fight after eating some bad fish.

"It's not an excuse, but a week before the fight he was hospitalized because he suffered a strong stomach infection. There, he left a lot of his strength. He's also had some tough fights, and this fight was tough....Mijares is a good fighter," Marquez said.

[QUOTE=sigrab jr;12652526]Marquez's power plateaued at 135. That's where his power couldn't be handled against Diaz and Casamayor. But at 147 he's not going to knock any top guy out. He's just gonna have to settle for another robbery loss in…

[QUOTE=SceneSpectator!;12652498]I believe Pac will KO JMM this time.. and I bet 1M points to anyone believes the other way around, or who believes JMM will KO Pac! But the rules applies only to TKO and KO out come. Any UD,…

Both Pac and JMM need to unload EVERYTHING, KO or be KO'd. None of this decision crap. Open up on each other till one tires or gets stopped or beautifully countered with a fight-ending punch. I will have less respect…
