Juan Manuel Marquez proved that he still got it inside the ring as he won against the younger Juan Diaz during their second face off at the Mandalay Bay Events Center last Saturday in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Though Marquez has never KO’d Diaz, it was obvious on his win via unanimous decision that it was as if he sent Diaz back to school; the fight was like a boxing clinic.
Marquez retained his boxing titles of WBO and WBA lightweight king.
With the convincing win and superb performance, people are clamoring for a Pacquiao-Marquez fight for the third time. The first time they fought, the result was a controversial draw though Pacquiao floored Marquez thrice during the first round; on the second fight, Pacquiao won via split decision.
But Pacquiao is already set to fight Antonio Margarito on November 14, 2010 at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium. The venue of the Pacquiao-Margarito Fight is still being negotiated.
But Marquez has not feared another shot at the pound-for-pound king saying,
“I’m not hiding and I’m not running. I’m here and I’m waiting for him. Everybody saw what happened. That’s the fight that boxing wants. That’s the fight that boxing needs.”
But for now, fans have to settle with the Pacquiao vs Margarito fight and from there, we will know what happens next.
Pacquiao vs Margarito live stream hopefully will be made available during fight day and will be posted here too.
