Nacho: I Hope Marquez Drops Pacquiao Once or Twice

By Miguel Rivera

Mexico's Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1, 39KOs) is placing the majority of his fight strategy on scoring a knockout victory over Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38KOs) on December 8th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Marquez, 39, and Pacquiao, 33, will fight for the fourth time. Three controversial endings have forced Marquez to target a knockout conclusion, according to the Mexican champion's trainer Nacho Beristain. He would like Juan Manuel to start very quickly and do his best to take Pacquiao off his feet.

"We want to gain a little more speed. In the third fight we were able to keep up with him, and we want to use that approach again to see if we can put him down on the canvas at least once," said Beristain.

"I would like to believe, and hope to God, that we put him down once or twice - but it is a bit difficult because the Filipino is also a warrior and a very tough fighter. Last time we thought we had the fight in the bag, but look at what happened...you can never tell what the judges are thinking."

Like i said Pac has slipped. If JMM ever knockdown Pac, once or twice, then that shows how long has Pac slipped. 3 fights were JMM got good clean shots against Pac but no knockdown.
