Koncz: If Pacquiao Loses, There Will Be No Excuses

By Chris Robinson

On Thursday afternoon, I ran across Michael Koncz, who was present at the open media workout for former featherweight champion Yuriorkis Gamboa inside of the Fortune Gym in Hollywood, California.

The Cuban marvel Gamboa will be ending a 15-month layoff when he meets Sorsogon, Philippines native Michael Farenas inside of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on the Dec. 8 undercard of Manny Pacquiao’s fourth encounter with Juan Manuel Marquez.

Koncz serves as Pacquiao’s advisor and admits he has been completely satisfied with his fighter’s preparation at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Los Angeles.

“I’m very pleased with the training,” Koncz stated. “Everything’s gone very well and come next Saturday, if for some reason we’re not victorious, we have no excuses.”

The upcoming event also marks the first time that Koncz has worked around newfound promoter and music mogul 50 Cent, who oversees the career of Gamboa

The public perception on 50 Cent’s involvement in the sport of boxing seems to be split, but for Koncz, he seems to foresee much collaboration down the road.

“We’ve been working very closely and we’ve been getting into some other endeavors, business deals with Manny and 50,” Koncz claimed. “We’re going to do some co-promotions together.

“I don’t know a whole bunch about him as a promoter,” Koncz would add. “But he’s a tremendous human being and he’s a very intelligent business man.”

Returning the focus of the conversation to Pacquiao’s upcoming assignment, Koncz insists that the eight-division champion had no trouble whatsoever staying motivated throughout camp given the dramatic history between him and Marquez.

“He’s excited about the Marquez fight,” Koncz insisted. “Neither one of the guys want to have a fifth one. I truly believe somebody is going to knock somebody out and I’m a little biased, but I’m thinking it’s going to be Manny.”
