Trainer Freddie Roach is very pleased with Manny Pacquiao fighting Juan Manuel Marquez for a third time on November 12 at MGM Grand in Las Vegas. He likes this fight much better than a potential bout with Floyd Mayweather Jr. Roach is very nervous about the fight because of the difficult nature that Pacquiao had in the two previous meetings. Pacquiao's first meeting with Marquez was a close twelve draw and the second bout won by Pacquiao was a controversial twelve round split decision.

“It’s the fight I want. It’s the one we were asking for cause we want to shut them up and to prove they never get robbed,” Freddie Roach was quoted by Boxeo Editores. “I know Manny Pacquiao has came along in weight and he is a much more complete fighter now than he was back then. This is not an easy fight. I’m a little nervous by the fight, yes, but I love this fight better than Mayweather.”

[QUOTE=Skills_Vs_Pills]So the fact that it's taken damn year 8 years to get a third Pac-Marquez fight to happen doesn't matter? Why take so long between fights? If Pac thought he really was better than Marquez, he would have fought him immediately after the second fight, instead of waiting ano...

I said Arum messed up by making it such a high penalty, and Floyd was intelligent by taking that and then saying "I met your demands, you meet mine now", when in fact the weight demand meant very little because Floyd is a natural 147 lber. I've never watched a game of american football in my l...

[QUOTE=BoxingFollower]This 3rd fight should have had happen back in 2008, who wait's 5+ years to give someone a rematch, he could have gave Marquez he rematch and shut him up for good. He would have 2 victories over Marquez at that time if he had won. Marquez is a easy fight for Pacquiao now t...
