Marquez Vows: I'm Ready To Die in The Pacquiao Fight!

By Edward Chaykovsky

Juan Manuel Marquez (53-5-1, 38 KOs), 37, is prepared to go out on his shield in the trilogy bout with WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao on November 12th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Marquez doesn't want any kind of controversy in the fight, which takes place at the catch-weight of 144-pounds.

After going to a controversial twelve round draw in 2004, and then losing a controversial split decision in 2008, Marquez plans to be aggressive and wants to make it a very exciting fight with a conclusive ending, but he won't be reckless either.

“I’ll go for the kill or die trying,” Marquez told the Manila Standard.

Marquez won't argue with the final result. He doesn't expect this fight to reach the judges. In an earlier piece on, Marquez made it clear that someone was going to get knocked out.

"I'm prepared to go toe to toe with him. This time there will not be any controversy. Either I'm going to win by knockout or he's going to knock me out, and yes I will be fighting with intelligence," Marquez said.

Manny should have had enough fighting these disappointing Taco eaters and skip to the KFCfloyd chicken main course! At least Floyd does chicken right.
