SI analyst conjectures Pacquiao will forfeit in 2012


Philippine boxing popular Manny Pacquiao will forfeit a boxing match up in 2012 the very first time in seven several years, a boxing analyst from Sports Illustrated expected. 

Pacquiao have not lost a round due to the fact his unanimous decision setback to Erik Morales in 2005, but Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix is predicting that Pacquiao will forfeit to Juan Manuel Marquez this season.

"The actual two rivals have witnessed their opportunities come to be as interweaved as Sugar Ray Robinson and Jake LaMotta, Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier," Mannix said of Pacquiao and Marquez.

"In thirty six rounds, only one--Pacquiao's 3-knockdown 1st round in the first fight--has definitely been recently decisive," he added.

Mannix declared since a mega-fight against undefeated American Floyd Mayweather Jr. aren't going to be possible until June, a fourth fight with Marquez "is the only real normal choice."

"And in one more back-and-forth battle (probably struggled looking at 50,000-plus fans at Cowboys Stadium) Marquez will finally acquire the triumph that has eluded him," Mannnix believed.

Pacquiao and Marquez have struggled three times, effortlessly three rounds contributing to debatable judgements. The newest installment, held last November 2011 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, saw Pacquiao eke out a number selection win regardless of struggling against Marquez through the night.

Mannix can also be guessing that the most eagerly anticipated fight in boxing, Pacquiao vs Mayweather, will not happen in 2012.

"Mayweather's not too long ago passed down prison entendement likely destroys any kind of possibility of making Mayweather-Pacquiao in the very first half of the year," Mannix said. "If Pacquiao will lose (against Marquez), there will unquestionably be a fifth fight relating to the 2, pushing any matchup with Mayweather into 2013."

Exciting fight for Donaire

Mannix also forecasted that Nonito "The Filipino Flash" Donaire will get together Cuban boxer Yuri Gamboa in an interesting match-up later on in 2012.

"Gamboa and Donaire are both mind blowing abilities that frequently look for the knockout," he said.

Donaire will make his debut in the junior featherweight division in February 2012 against Wilfredo Vazquez, Jr., while Gamboa will move to the super featherweight section in March.

However the two boxers fight in various weight divisions, Mannix expects that they can meet later in 2012.

"The not enough quality oppositions for either will result in matchup between the two Top Rank-promoted fighters at the end of the season," he explained.
