Trainer Freddie Roach, and conditioning coach Alex Ariza, expect WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao to punish Juan Manuel Marquez on November 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. They told the Philippine Star that Pacquiao dislikes Marquez because of the Mexican boxer's continued claims that he was robbed in their two previous meetings.

In his last two fights, against Shane Mosley and Antonio Margarito, Roach and Ariza have been critical of Pacquiao's "nice guy" nature in the ring. They don't expect a nice guy on November 12th.

I dont think Ive seen him more focused, and I think its because its personal, for sure. I dont see Manny even touching gloves (with Marquez), Ariza said. He has a disdain for the guy, and Ive never known him to dislike anyone. Manny is still a nice guy and everything, but theres something very Third World about him when he wants to be. He can be merciless. Ive seen it, and its been a long time since Ive seen that. Usually he lets guys off the hook. He isnt letting anybody off the hook.

Roach is predicting a knockout in six rounds of less. After a twelve round draw in 2004, and a controversial split decision win in 2008, Roach believes a convincing knockout victory will finally shut Marquez's mouth.

I dont think this fight is going to go six rounds, Roach said. With Mannys footwork, hes just a completely different animal to the guy that fought Marquez the first time. (Marquez) has gotten up against Manny before, but I dont think hes going to be able to get up from the power Manny has now. Hes a much stronger guy than he was at those smaller weight classes. Hes just a completely different animal. We can put it to bed, finally shut them up, and be happy.

[QUOTE=micky1971]my mistake, 145 is it? anyway i disagree about pacman beating jmm at lightweight or super feather. ok, pacman lost no speed and gained power with experience and better ring craft with post marquez fights but, jmm is a technical marvel and awesome counter hitter even given pacman...

[QUOTE=radioraheem]I agree, he most likely run over Marquez. However, if Marquez drinks his own version of the Alex Ariza shakes too, then your boy Pacquiao is in for quite a nightmare. =)[/QUOTE] Lol, you never know. Pac beat him without Ariza too.

while i dont think jmm is going to win he is still going to make pac look stupid and people will finally realize that pac is still the same pattern fighter of back then.

I don't have anything bad to say about Manny. Right now, he's the man but I don't see this fight with JMM meaning anything because although Manny is in his prime, JMM is not. And i pretty much agree with everyone about Manny being better but i don't think it means anything because we obviously ...
