Nacho: Pacquiao-Marquez is Not a Toe To Toe Fight

By Rick Reeno

Hall of fame trainer Nacho Beristain doesn't expect Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez to be a toe to toe encounter - because the styles of the two fighters would never allow for such a scenario. Nacho has trained Marquez for all four of his fights with Pacquiao, with the fourth showdown taking place this Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Because their previous three fights have all ended with controversial decisions, both boxers have promised to win by knockout.

"This can never be a toe to toe fight. It can never be that way because of their styles. Marquez is a smart boxer and Pacquiao doesn't fight toe to toe either. Pacquiao attacks his opponent and then pulls back. He doesn't stand toe to toe. He attacks his opponent, pulls back and makes them feel comfortable and then he jumps on them again and hurts them," Nacho said.

In order to win by knockout, logic would indicate that Marquez would have to take chances.

"We just have to be smart [with our strategy to get the knockout]. If Pacquiao wants to come in all wild and reckless, trying to get a knockout, that's better for us. But we are going to fight smart," Nacho said.
