Pacquiao: After Losing, I Never Complained Like Marquez

By Luis Sandoval

Manny Pacquiao is preparing to face his toughest boxing adversary Juan Manuel Marquez for a fourth and hopefully final time to settle the score between both combatants. While Pacquiao has won two of the three fights with the third one being a draw, a lot of people have felt those decisions should’ve gone to Marquez.

Marquez has been very vocal after each of the three fights as he argued that he deserved to get the decisions and should’ve been given the victory. This past June, Pacquiao lost a very controversial fight to Timothy Bradley in a bout where almost everyone had Pacquiao winning pretty convincingly. While the shoe was finally on the other foot, Pacquiao points out he never made a big deal of it like Marquez did.

“You know, if you compare my fight [with Marquez] to the Bradley fight, I think the Bradley fight is [a] worse [decision]. But I never complained. Did you hear from me, from my mouth that I'm complaining? I lost the fight and I never complained. That's just part of the sport” Pacquiao would tell BoxingScene.

To try and avoid another controversial outcome, Pacquiao says he will be much more aggressive this time around. The intensity and aggressiveness already seems to be showing in camp as its been reported he’s dropped sparring partners in training. With both fighters promising to be bring the fight, Pacquiao was asked if he felt this fourth installment would resemble their first two fight which were action packed.

“I'm hoping for that. More action in the ring. I will do my best and if I could have a chance to finish it early, why not. [I’m] more focused on more aggressiveness this training camp. More aggressiveness and head movement. Side by side and speed. I think it's going to be a big difference compared to the last 3 fights that we've had” said Pacquiao.

While Pacquiao didn’t work out for the media, he did show off his ripped and shredded physique as he looked to be in tremendous shape as always.

LOL @ haters being stupid. Clearly the hate on Pacquiao dulls many people's senses. Pacquiao had a clear validated point whether you agree or not. Against Marquez, many people go either way on who they believe won the fights. All…
