Ronnie Shields (Pacquiao): I think Pacquiao wins again by a close split decision. Marquez is a slow starter. Theres nothing they can do to make him start faster. I think hes going to get behind on the scorecards early. Hell catch up again, coming down to the last couple rounds, and I think thats when Pacquiao will pull it out.

I think that Pacquiaos combination punching at the end always seems to be a little bit more than everybody elses right now. And I dont see Marquez doing anything to change that. He really has to hurt Pacquiao to change that, and I just dont see that happening, because Pacquiao has great feet. He moves around the ring very well, and he fires combinations like crazy. I dont think Marquez will be able to keep up with that.

Eddie Mustafa Muhammad (No pick): First and foremost, I think the fans win. Theyre the winners of the big fight. As far as whos going to win, I dont want to pick a winner, because I think boxing is so corrupt that you really cant pick a winner. Thats just how it is. I will never pick a winner. Im going to keep on saying that boxing is corrupt. Anytime Pacquiao beats [Timothy] Bradley 9-3 in rounds, and they give it to Bradley I mean, everyone in the stadium is not blind. And then [Brandon] Rios and [Richard] Abril you really cant pick a winner, because thats how corrupt boxing is.

Thats why we have no commercials, nothing that will elevate an elite fighter, like endorsements. We dont have none of that for the elite fighter, because the game is so corrupt, and the promoters, the sanctioning bodies, everything is just so corrupt. Thats why I wont pick a winner, basically, for the big fights.

Sam Garcia (Pacquiao): Im going to go with Pacquiao. Im going to believe him this time. Im going to believe that hes going to win by knockout. I think that hes motivated enough. You can always go based on what you see on 24/7 or what you hear in the gyms. From what I hear, hes looking really good, really strong and focused. You know if Pacquiaos focused and 100 percent, then theres not too many people in the world who can beat him or give him trouble. So Im going to pick him by stoppage. I say inside of eight.

I just think that Marquez has dealt with Pacquiao as good as he can deal with Pacquiao. Maybe Marquez has lost a step. Hes a little bit older and hes at a heavier weight. I think he handled the weight better in the last couple fights hes fought. But I just think Pacquiao is a better fighter all-around if hes mentally correct. Thats what Im basing my pick on, basically, is hes mentally ready to go, that hes motivated by Freddie and the other people at the Wild Card.

John Scully (Pacquiao): Ill go with Pacman in another close but somewhat clearer decision. I think Pacman is still in line for the Mayweather fight, that theres still some hope, while Marquez may never be an option based on his first fight with Floyd. Really close rounds will probably go to Pacquiao.

[QUOTE=DigitalBeast]What is wrong with you? Did you go to a school for deviants(gays)? Why not spell like a normal person? On topic: Since the fight has a good chance of being another very close one, of course there may be controversy. I do hope the real winner's hand will be raised. Marquez ...

I see this fight being very interesting. I believe Marquez will actually try his hand at being the aggressor, he will have his moments, but he will ultimately have little success in that department, seeing as Pacquiao's wild style is hard to deal with with that type of approach. Marquez will even...

[QUOTE=eddiefutch]And the winner is.......Bob Arum!!!$$$$$$ Coming Fall 2103 Pacquiao Vs Marquez 5:boxing:[/QUOTE] I believe that totally I remember reading something about that depending on the outcome of this fight it is definitely in the cards.

Marquez by desicion pacquiao has slowed down has way too many distractions congress jinkee running for whatever marquez looks really focused think it will be close but marquez pulling out this time will keep busy in the later rounds.
