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.

However, Marquez's counter-punching and side-to-side movement will at times frustrate and hurt Pacquiao, and at times, provide much difficulty for the pound-for-pound king.

While Marquez did struggle at a heavier weight. Marquez looked like he was fighting in quicksand against Floyd Mayweather Jr. in their 144 lbs match. Pacquiao, however, has had success fighting at a heavier weight. He is 7-0 in his most recent fights, of which one fight was at held at light welterweight, five at welterweight, and one at super welterweight.

They say styles make fights. Marquez's style is the perfect antidote to Pacquiao's offensive onslaught. Marquez matches up very well with Pacquiao. Marquez is a very technical fighter with excellent counter striking. Experts say that Pacquiao is stronger and faster at welterweight and Marquez will be destroyed on November 12. But for me, I don't think so, Marquez still possesses the skill set to give Pacquiao another run for his money.
