Touch to the intense practice was pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao on his second day of high altitude training in Baguio City.

Roach arrived with Venezuelan Jorge Linares, who will serve as Pacquiao’s sparring partner until the team leaves for Los Angeles a month before the fight to continue training at the Wild Card Gym.

Most Mexican boxing experts and analysts are chosen to win Juan Manuel Marquez in their trilogy fight with Manny Pacquiao. According to legend also Rueben "El Puas" Olivares, said Marquez has the last chance to prove to himself that it he can beat Pacquiao. If he can knockout the Pinoy champion he will do, because if he doesn't Marquez will be going to be knockout in that Pacquiao vs Marquez fight.

But if you're going to ask Marco Antonio Barrera the former foe of pound-for-pound king Pacquiao he has a different point of view on the said fight. According to former featherweight champion Barrera

Expensive tickets for Pacquiao vs Marquez 3 fight

Pacquiao vs Marquez 3
Boxing fans can't wait to see again Manny Pacquiao in action once again against Juan Manuel Marquez this coming November 12. Tickets to the rubber match won’t be available until the first week of August but Arum said the priciest will retail at $1,200, while the cheapest will be sold at around $200. The 17,000-seat MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas will host the World Boxing Organization welterweight title fight.

The $1,200 ringside seat will be the second most expensive for a Pacquiao headliner. When Pacquiao fought the legendary Oscar De La Hoya in December 2008 also at the MGM Grand, the price of a ringsise seat was $1,500. When Pacquiao faced Shane Mosley last month, a ringside ticket sold at $1,000 and Arum remains optimistic the extra $200 will not matter since Marquez should put on a gutsier stand against Pacquiao.

Why Pacquiao vs Marquez 3 will be Exciting?

Pacquiao vs Marquez 3
Pacquiao vs Marquez 3 will be the most exciting fight of 2011. We all know that Manny Pacquiao (53-3-2, 38 KOs) recent fight against Shane Mosley seems to me no exciting at all. Will these time we will see some real action. Pacquiao will fight Juan Manuel Marquez (52-5-1, 38 KOs) for the third time hoping Pacquiao will silence Marquez this time. The Action will be more back-and-forth than fans expect, even when fought at a higher weight (144 lbs.) than the lightweight Marquez is used to.

The 8 division world champion Pacquiao holds two distinct advantages in this bout: explosiveness and speed. I expect Pacquiao to knock down Marquez at least once in this fight.

Pacquiao vs Marquez 3: Size and Style

Pacquiao vs Marquez 3
Their first fight took place inside of the MGM Grand and saw Pacquiao storm out of the gates with three first-round knockdowns before Marquez regrouped to take command in the middle rounds. The second fight was just as wild, as Marquez again overcame a third-round knockdown before turning the tide of the fight only to see Pacquiao close a bit stronger in the championship rounds. Now the two fighters will meet again on November 12 in Las Vegas. Pacquiao vs Marquez 3, is this a competitive fight or a mismatch? If its a competitive fight, you believe that Marquez has proven his style gives Pacquiao fits, and it’s a style unlike anything Pacquiao has seen since his one-point split decision over Juan Manuel Marquez in 2008. If you say its a mismatch, you believe that Pacquiao has outgrown Marquez since their last fight and, at a contract weight of 144 pounds, Pacquiao will be at his most effective and Marquez will be at his least effective.

Pacquiao vs Marquez 3 on Nov 12, 2011

Pacquiao vs Marquez 3
It was confirmed by the chief executive of the Golden Boy Promotions Richard Schaefer that Top Rank sent a formal written letter to WBA/WBO lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez offering him $5 million dollar guarantee to fight Manny Pacquiao in his world welterweight title on November 12 in Las Vegas, Marquez accepted the offer and said that” it’s the fight I’ve been waiting for and I want to fight him”

According to Marquez, the catch weight is going to be 144 pounds and not 145 as what they previously outlined as disclosed by Micheal Koncz, the adviser of Pacquiao. Though Marquez had already accepted the fight, it was not yet official on what weight will they agreed to fight. As we know catch weight is a part of the negotiations for a third fight between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez. The Pacquiao vs Marquez 3 fight will favor Marquez if he wins the fight because he is going to jump from Lightweight to Welterweight and it’s a smooth way to make up his loss on his last fight with Mayweather.

In their previous fight, Pacquiao vs Marquez III fought two great times: first on a controversial draw in their 2004 featherweight championship fight and a split decision 2008 junior lightweight title fight in favor of Pacquiao. From now then on, Marquez has been challenging Pacquiao for a third fight with regards to the controversial decision in their fight.

Marquez wears ‘I beat Pacquiao twice’ shirt

Pacquiao vs Marquez 3
Mexican boxing champion Juan Manuel Marquez said he has become more keyed up for a possible third bout with Fighter of the Decade Manny Pacquiao.

“Pacquiao, Pacquiao, Pacquiao, I sound like a broken record already,” Marquez said in the post-fight press conference. He wore a shirt that stated, “I beat Pacquiao twice,”.

He now boasts of a record of 52-5-1, including 38 knockout wins. In the press conference, Marquez reiterated his call, saying he should be the next challenger to the 8-division champion Pacquiao.

“Yes, he beat bigger fellows but they are all past their prime while I beat younger and stronger boxers like Juan Diaz and Michael Katsidis,” he claimed.

The boxer said he will fight Pacquiao if the latter agrees to fight at 140 to 142 lbs.

“I know he can make that weight as when he fought Margarito, he was just 144 lbs. So if they insist in fight at 147, like Freddie Roach has mentioned, they are again giving excuses,” he said.

Pacquiao’s Hall-of-Famer coach had said that the boxing superstar will only fight next in the welterweight division. He said the Filipino boxer seems more “comfortable” weighing at 147 lbs.

Marquez calls out Pacquiao

The brash Mexican called on boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao to face him so they could prove once and for all who between the two of them is the better fighter.Marquez made the challenge shortly after disposing of Michael Katsidis in the ninth round of their title fight to retain his World Boxing Association (WBA) and World Boxing Organization (WBO) lightweight belts at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“Pacquiao, Pacquiao, Pacquiao, I sound like a broken record already,” said Marquez during the post-fight interview.

“I will fight him at 140 or even 142 lbs. I know he can make that weight as when he fought Margarito,” added the soft-spoken Mexican. He noted how Pacquiao, his long-time rival, came in at 144 lbs. at the official weigh-in of his recent super-welterweight fight with Antonio Margarito.

The challenge Marquez hurled is just the latest in a series his camp has made on the 31-year-old Pacquiao, the same fighter whom he turned down in 2004 when a rematch was in the planning stage. That controversial title fight had ended in a draw. Pacquiao knocked Marquez thrice in a blazing start in that action-packed bout. But the Mexican stood up each time, rallied in the later rounds, and eventually salvaged a draw to retain his featherweight belts.

A return match was immediately worked on, but the Marquez camp turned down the proposed 50-50 split of the purse. Marquez eventually relented to a second meeting with the Pacman in 2008. It was a bloody encounter that saw the Filipino pride escaping with a controversial split decision, a result that obviously didn’t sit well with the Mexican fighter. Up to this day, Marquez insists he won both times over Pacquiao, now the world’s top pound-for-pound fighter.
