Pacquiao vs. Marquez: Third Fight Won't Live Up to Lofty Expectations

What do we expect in Pacquiao Vs Marquez 3? Pacquiao and Marquez know each other in terms of boxing because they were fighting each other two times. When asking about what do expect more for this decision fight? Of course we expect a good fight coming from Marquez. We will expect better and far more better and more more intertaining war inside the ring.


Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez know each other so well it's scary. That's why the third fight between these two is one of the most anticipated of the year. Unfortunately, the expectations won't be able to match the hype. 

The first time that Pacquiao and Marquez fought was in 2004. It was a terrific back and forth bout, and Pacquiao actually knocked him down three times in the first round, but Marquez was able to hold on and battled back to force a draw from the judges. 

The result was controversial, with both men claiming that they had a right to victory. One of the judges later claimed that he made a scoring error and Pacquiao should have won a split decision. 

The second time they locked horns was in 2008. This time it was Pacquiao who earned a split decision victory, but Marquez actually landed more punches and was more precise with his striking. 

Throwing fuel on top of the fire is the fact that Marquez keeps telling the world that he should have won those first two fights and this third match is a long time coming.

“That’s why I want the third fight,” Marquez said in an interview with the Las Vegas Sun. “I thought I won the first fight and the second one as well—clearly.” 

But with so much history, so much anticipation and so many expectations for these two men to live up to, it is going to be impossible for them to leave the fans satisfied and smiling.
