Juan Manuel Marquez has enjoyed 11 weeks of excellent preparation ahead of his third battle with pound for pound king Manny Pacquiao at the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night.
Mexican warrior Marquez and Pacquiao have fought twice before, with one bout ending in a draw and the other by Pacquiao via points decision. Both were very close bouts and Marquez wants to finally eradicate any doubts this time.
“I want to do all I can make to this the biggest selling pay-per-view fight ever,” said Marquez.
“I’ve been training in the higher altitudes and I’m right on weight. We had 11 great weeks of training and now it’s waiting for fight week to begin.
“All the preparation has been done. Now it’s just about having the fight of my life to settle everything once and for all.”
