Oh bobby how we weave our little web. Cracquiao is avoiding the blood testing point blank. This is the only reason they want the fight outside the U.S. Crackquaio won’t look super human without his EPO. Ask uncle lancy.

Mannys supplier’s phone will b running hot 4 this 1…Don’t worry uncle Arum no how and where 2 get u back on track

Bob Arum and Don King should be forced to fight bare knuckles to the death then the winner should be hung by the neck with barbed wire and whipped with a razor blade laced cat o’ nine tails until dead. I’d pay good money to watch that.

You are a bigoted imbecile that does’t know the fact that México City is one of the safest in the world with wa less criminal rates than NY even when it is way larger. I have never felt insecure in México City but definitely I di when Iwent to the Yankees game…

spot on, well said

This writer has clearly never been to Mexico city, what a ridiculous article. I’ll bet there are some US towns more dangerous than the area of Miexico city where the fight would take place, downtown Chicago anyone ? Demographically, JMM v MP fights are mostly atended by Mexican fans in any case, I don’t see many US fans travelling for this, US fight fans rarely travel far for their own and MP aint no American.

Don’t believe Manny wants to fight Marquez in Mexico.

Arum is notorious for public and unilateral negotiations as a publicity stunt. otherwise, the “effin spartan” hasn’t agreed too or signed a Damn thing. i’ll believe it when i see Manny* praying on a ring-post in a boxing ring in Mexico City. until then, it’s nothing but Arum gas.

apparently, this imbecile writer hasn’t considered that Marquez’s fanbase already IS in Mexico(?!) and they don’t regularly travel to Vegas to watch boxing either. it makes no difference whether U.S. fight-fans show up or not. it’s a Sell-Out regardless. what a slimey way to take some digs at this country’s primary drug supplier. a little gratitude, maybe?

Anymore need to b said about the goat Pac. Dude is a effin spartan do y’all c y i ride with Pac. Marquez is a deadman Pac knows what hes doing.

Mexico would be a great place for this fight, Azteca Stadium would be an amazing place for it to take place, Everyone go to you tube, put on Julio Caesar Chavez vs Greg Haugen and tell me that Mexico is not the best place fro this fight,Just watching the fighters come into ring that night still gives me chill Mexico is the best place on the planet for this 5th fight- PEACE

Salvador Sanchez vs

Mexico City Arena has the 2nd largest Center-hung high-definition screen in the world(7534 square feet), just behind Cowboys Stadium(11,520 square feet). And outdoor LED screen, which has an area of 67,000 square feet. This Arena is one of the best in the world. It is a shame that the Azteca Stadium(100,000 people) cant be considered for this event.

Salvador Sanchez vs

Lol, Mexico City is way safer than New York City. The problems are in the border and a couple other states. And the Arena holds from 18,000(concert) to 22,000(boxing) people depending of the event. In

These are perhaps the silliest arguments one can come up with. Nevermind that, after his win against Pacquiao, Marquez’s popularity in Mexico is at its all time highest, and he wouldn’t have any problems to sell out even the Azteca stadium, not to even mention a hall which is slightly bigger than the MGM Grand – he needs to box in Canada, because the biggest market for his and Pacquiao’s fights is not in Mexico or Philippines, but in North America! ;-) Mr. Smith, the world doesn’t revolve just around the US, as you and some other people here still seem to believe. After such insulting remarks about Mexico like you’ve just made, I guess you’d be the one to need a bodyguard when visiting this country, not Arum. I, for one, will be more than happy if their 5th fight takes place in Mexico, so that Marquez’s loyal fans can finally see their hero vs. his biggest rival at home.

Of course you are in danger in Mexico if you are in drugs deals. Your life and the life of your bodyguard will have the same value of an orange. The rest of the people are so secure or insecure than in any country.Tim, Are all the american save? Do you watch others channels than Espn and Fox Sports?

Mexico would be the perfect venue for this particular fight. The Mexican fight fans will be loud and excited and the revenue for the city won’t be too shabby. I would say this is a perfect place for this match up…just sayin’
