Marquez Wants Three "Non-Nevada" Judges For Pacquiao

By Ernesto Castellanos, notifight.com

WBO junior welterweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez wants three neutral judges for his fourth fight with Manny Pacquiao on December 8th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Marquez doesn't want any judges from the state of Nevada. He believes the Nevada judges have robbed him of three earned victories against Pacquiao.

They fought to a draw in 2004, with Marquez losing a close split decision in 2008 and close majority decision in 2011. All three of those endings were viewed as controversial. Because of the controversy with the three fights, Marquez expects the Nevada judges to be a little nervous when handing in their scorecards.

"I will request that the judges for this fight will be composed of one Mexican judge, one Filipino and one neutral judge [from outside of Nevada]. This time I don't want the judges to be appointed by the Nevada Athletic Commission, who normally appoint three Americans from their staff. I do not know if my request will be processed, but I'm going to make it," Marquez said.

"[If they don't honor my request], then I'm going to fight as I did in my three previous fights - before judges appointed by Nevada. This time I hope that my victory is not taken away. They have already done this to me on three occasions, but I do not think that it will happen again. I am sure that on this occasion they are going to work with a little bit of fear, and they will give victory to whoever deserves it."

Does anyone really believe Pac is knocking out JMM lol? Honestly? Pac knocked JMM 4 times, with all 4 of those times being more when Pac at his prime and most dangerous and he couldn't stop JMM. The last fight…
