Four division world champion Juan Manuel Márquez has written a book about his trilogy with Filipino rival Manny Pacquiao. The book, called "Yes, I beat you Pacquiao," will be presented this Sunday at the international book fair at the Politecnico. Marquez notes that his book is more than just Pacquiao. He details portions of his career and the qualities that made him one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in boxing.
"[This book is about] how I worked to achieve what I have achieved, with character, courage, and the desire that must be there to get what you want," said Marquez.
"The book which I wrote, and obviously I was helped a little with editing, was based on what I did and what I did to succeed. I speak of discipline, responsibility, and to do so in a book is very important because it's a great way for people to know a little bit more about me."
This first edition, Juan Manuel explained, will be printed with five thousand copies.
