MANILA, Philippines – Filipino boxing icon Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao and his rival, Juan Manuel Marquez of Mexico, are set to write the final chapter on their epic trilogy when they meet today at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
It will be the third meeting between the two boxers, who battled to a draw in their first meeting in 2004. The first bout saw Pacquiao drop Marquez 3 times in the first round, only to see the Mexican warrior rise back each time.
Their 2008 meeting was just as close as the first. Pacquiao once decked Marquez in the third round, and it proved to be the difference as he took a split decision victory.
Both boxers have promised that the trilogy bout will once and for all answer all the questions left behind by their first 2 meetings.
Several boxing analysts have given their opinion regarding the outcome of the fight, with many predicting Pacquiao to prove that he is the better fighter.
