MGM Grand, Las Vegas - Prior to the sensational third fight between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez, WBC president Jose Sulaiman condemned the fight by calling it a mismatch. Sulaiman felt Marquez was too old, too small and not strong enough to deal with Pacquiao. Sulaiman was wrong. Pacquiao won a very close twelve round majority decision, with many ringside observers believing Marquez was the victor.
At the beginning of the post-fight press conference. a fired up Bob Arum, the CEO pf Top Rank, asked the media from Mexico to deliver a message to Suliaman.
"Are any of the media from Mexico here yet?" Asked Arum as a few reporters raised their hands.
"Tell the president of the WBC what an *sshole he is. Tell him that I called him that. Juan Manuel Marquez is a great fighter. He doesn't know what he is talking about"
