Pacquiao and Marquez set for fourth showdown

  • Intro:

    Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez finished their promotional tour for their December 8th bout on Friday (September 21) with an appearance in Mexico City.


    Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez concluded their three city, international promotional tour on Friday at Mexico City Arena.

    The fighters will meet for the fourth time in December to conclude what both say is unfinished business.

    The two fought to a draw in 2004 and Pacquiao won by split decision in 2008 and 2011. All three decisions were mired in controversy.

    Having fought at 125, 130 and 144 pounds, their fourth fight will be a straight welterweight contest at 147 pounds.

    Pacquiao comes into the fight on the heels of his first loss since 2005, a wildly disputed decision to Timothy Bradley, and is looking forward to his next fight

    I'm happy to fight again with your great warrior, Juan Manuel Marquez. And I hope you're going to watch on December 8th, it's going to be a good fight. I really salute your warrior, Juan Manuel Marquez. He's a very tough boxer and a great warrior. And also I'd like to thank all the fans of boxing, especially in
    Mexico City. And to all the Filipinos who are here in Mexico, thank you so much."

    Pacquiao and Marquez will join the short list of rivalries that couldn't be contained by a mere trilogy, including Sugar Ray Robinson's six fights with Jake LaMotta and Robinson's four bouts with Gene Fullmer.
