Most Mexican boxing experts and analysts are chosen to win Juan Manuel Marquez in their trilogy fight with Manny Pacquiao.

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.
