By Steve Mabbott: Dan Rafael of ESPN and WBA World welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi see Juan Manuel Marquez beating Manny Pacquiao tonight in their fourth fight together. Rafael sees it as a law of averages type of thing, whereas Malignaggi believes that Marquez will win a fight decision.
Rafael said to RingTV “The judges might give Marquez the slightest benefit of the doubt…so instead [...]
By Bill Phanco: Juan Manuel Marquez is really looking forward to getting Manny Pacquiao back in the ring tonight to beat him for a fourth time, although technically this will be Marquez’s first real win over the Filipino star. Marquez feels he won all three previous fights with Manny and tonight will be just the icing on the cake with him finally getting acknowledged as the winner by the judges.
By Bill Phanco: Floyd Mayweather Sr. doesn’t have a whole lot of interest in tonight’s clash between Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1, 39 KO’s) and Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KO’s), because he says he’s seen too many fights between them in the past where the wrong fighter got his hand raised after the fight.
Speaking with Examiner.com writer Chris Robinson, Mayweather Sr. said “I hope this [...]

The bloom is off the rose. We all saw it coming with Freddie Roach "wishing" his way to win after win with Amir Kahn. But one more win was not in the cards. Roach fighters would continue to lose. Senshenko…Chavez, Jr….Pacquaio. Wilting in boxing is uglier than it is in any other sport because of the utter sense of downer that follows. There [...]
By Bill Phanco: Former four division world champion Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1, 39 KO’s) will be looking to knock Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KO’s) clean out on Saturday in their fourth fight between them. Marquez, 39, wants to take the judges completely out of their position of being able to sit as the decider in this fight by knocking Pacquiao and making sure that he won’t be on the receiving [...]
By Reni M. Valenzuela: Juan Manuel Marquez is coming to fight, while Manny Pacquiao is coming to finish him. Marquez wants vindication. Pacquiao wants conclusion. Shocks may fill the ring, and beyond, but which wouldn’t be shocks to those who could perceive them coming anyway between determined elite fighters of classic “rematch” series inside a brass arena.
This time around, Kenny Bayless [...]
By Rob Smith: Manny Pacquiao has a perfect explanation for why he’s not looked good since his win over Miguel Cotto in 2009. He says it’s because all of his opponents have been literally running from him in the ring instead of standing stationary and slugging it out in an old fashioned style of fighting that Pacquiao favors.
Pacquiao thinks that his opponent for Saturday night Juan Manuel Marquez [...]
By Steve Mabbott: Juan Manuel Marquez had looked huge during his training video on the HBO Pacquiao-Marquez 24/7 episodes, but during today’s weigh-in for Saturday’s Las Vegas based fight, Marquez weighed in at only 143 lbs, a whole four pounds lighter than the 147 pound Manny Pacquiao.
This is interesting because unless Marquez rehydrates to a much higher weight, we’re likely to see Pacquiao [...]
By Rob Smith: Manny Pacquiao (54-4-2, 38 KO's) made weight today for his bout tomorrow night against Juan Manuel Marquez (54-6-1, 39 KO's) at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.
