Sulaiman Tabs Serious Pacquiao To Beat Marquez

World Boxing Council president Don Jose Sulaiman believes “Fighter of the Decade” Manny Pacquiao should overcome Mexico’s Juan Manuel Marquez when they clash for the fourth time at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on December 8.

Sulaiman told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard that Pacquiao should win “if he takes the fight seriously” and all indications point to the fact that the southpaw from General Santos City is doing just that.

He skipped being a commentator for GMA 7 on the unification title fight between WBO champion Brian Viloria and WBA champion Hernan “Tyson” Marquez. GMA 7 televised the fight in the Philippines on Sunday afternoon but Manny wanted to rest after weeks of tough sparring and hard work in the Wild Card Gym of Freddie Roach.

Pacquiao’s strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza who was at the fights along with Filipino trainer Restituto “Buboy” Fernandez told the Manila Standard that “its cold outside and Manny just thought it would be better since this is the flu season, to go home and rest.”

While some TV viewers in the Philippines and fans at the venue may have been disappointed GMA picked super bantamweight Drian Francisco who had earlier won a smashing 5th round TKO over Mexico’s solid Javier Gallo to work the Viloria-Marquez fight with Chino Trinidad and he did a fine job.

Ariza was pleased with Pacquiao’s decision to skip going to the fights pointing out that “this just goes to show you that Manny is taking this fourth fight with Juan Manuel Marquez very seriously. You know in the past he would have shown up for something like this and this time he’s just playing it safe.”

Sulaiman said that the 39 year old Marquez “didn’t look good at all in his last fight in Mexico City months ago against a mediocre fighter.”

That fight was against Ukraine’s Serhiy Fedchenko on April 14 this year when Marquez won the WBO interim light welterweight title with a twelve round unanimous decision.

So will finally see a serious Pacman this go around? So the last 3 Pacmans weren't serious and we were conned into believing him before. What if this Pacman slips away wit another close SD, then what? Tired of this fight and recycling previous opponents...

Seriously who gives a flying fffff who you think won? Whether you think one will school the other, who you think won all three fights..this is an entirely new set of 12 rounds..I would rather watch pacquaio vs marquez 4,5,6,7 than watch another Floyd vs Ortiz bullshhhh card..Both these guys could...

Suliman mad because Marquez actually has an opinion about the boxing politics and whats wrong with the sport today and won't just simply go along with Suliman; before you know it Suliman is going to harp on about how Marquez isn't a true Mexican warrior.

Yeah, I can't agree with what you are saying here. I am watching it simply to see 2 great boxers ply their trade. Both of them are great fighters and saying that anyone in the Junior Welterweight class would walk through Marquez is simply absurd. Welterweight is something else, as I don't really ...
