Roach added: “He’s been a little bit meaner to his sparring partners and his attitude is a little bit more aggressive. He wants this fight badly especially after Marquez wore the ‘Marquez Beat Manny Twice’ t-shirts and went to the Philippines to campaign for another fight. I think Manny is going to pay him back.”
If, as expected Manny does finally defeat Marquez beyond any doubt, the talk will then inevitably turn to the man that competes with him for his pound for pound No.1 ranking-Floyd Mayweather Jr.
“There are two people in the whole world that Manny doesn’t like,” Roach insisted, one is Marquez, the other is Mayweather Jr. “You’re never going to get him to say that but I can tell by his training that he has a little extra firepower in him.”
After his last three fights going the distance, Pacquiao needs to prove his firepower is firmly intact and what better way of proving it than blasting out his Mexican rival. The form guide suggests that ‘Pac Man’ will be too fast strong for his older rival but every boxer has a bogeyman to haunt him and Marquez could be it. Regardless of the outcome while it lasts boxing fans are guaranteed a full on out and war that could just be the ‘Fight of the Year’
