Thirty-eight year old, three-division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez is here in the Philippines for the World Press tour for his 3rd bout with 32 year old, eight-division world champion Manny Pacquiao which will be held on November 12 (November 13, Manila time) at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Mexican professional boxer Juan Manuel Marquez who is known as the best technical fighter in the whole world, has a record of 53 wins, 39 knockouts, 5 losses and 1 draw which was against Sarangani Congressman Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao last 2004. Their return bout in 2008 ended in a split decision win for Pacquiao taking away Marquez’s WBC super featherweight title.
Marquez reiterated, “Yes, I think I won the fight. Manny knows who won the second fight.” To end all these questions about both fights, they will be facing again at a 144-pound catchweight.
Just hours after arriving at the Centennial Airport, Marquez was seen jogging and stretching at the Luneta Park with his training team in tow. “I want to work my strength and speed since Manny is very fast. I (also) need to work for the weight. For this fight, I want to train very hard”, explained Marquez.
