Manny Pacquiao's next two opponents are not very popular items with World Boxing Council (WBC) President Jose Sulaiman. Don Jose is not enthusiastic about Pacquiao fight with Shane Mosley, which takes place on May 7 at the MGM Grand, or the Filipino's potential fall trilogy battle with Mexican rival Juan Manuel Marquez.

"The latest opponent [Mosley] for Pacquiao has been chosen for him to win. Mosley is finished. He no longer has the legs or the speed or the power. Marquez is a lightweight and a move to welterweight would give all of the advantages to Pacquiao. It's a fight that in no way should be done. Marquez is a great fighter, but there is a big difference between the current weights of both boxers," insisted Sulaiman.

Pacquiao (52-3-2, 38 KOs) and Marquez (52-5-1, 38 KO) last fought at 130-pounds.

Marquez's trainer Nacho Beristain is not concerned with a possible welterweight limit. He stated in a recent interview that Pacquiao always weighs in well below the limit of 147 and the two boxers would be around the same weight on the day of the fight.

"Fighting at welterweight is not a problem because both of them would be at the same weight on the day of the fight," Beristain said.

but he has no problem with the fact that the wbc 147 belt has only been defended against a legit 147 contender once in the last five years.

Of course all the Manny nut huggers are going to hate of this but I agree with him. Lets see Manny go down to 135 and fight JMM.. That will show us something. Telling bigger fighters to cut weight if they want a fight proves nothing when beating them IMO.

[QUOTE=Dan Gutierrez]In the event that Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez will fight...I would advise the family of JMM to prepare themselves for a long mourning. Last time these fighters met was at lightweight. At that time Manny Pacquiao was a one handed fighter and he sent JMM to the canva...
