Marquez-Pacquiao II Tonight... My prediction

The rematch everyone has been waiting to see is finally here! No you won't be watching two unskilled and over paid heavyweights... The TRUE big men once again share center stage.

This fight guarantees action as both fighters don't fuck around in the ring! They are fighting for their countries and the pride behind that. Mix that in with the bad taste of a draw still wet in their mouths and you've got a fight that could be a fight of the year candidate. That's how great it looks on paper and I seriously doubt Manny and Juan will dare perform any different.

I like the positive retooling Freddy Roach has done with Manny Pac. He's becoming and really is now a more balanced fighter. That was NOT the case in their first fight so Marquez will be facing a totally different beast in the ring tonight. On top of that Manny has reportaly had his best camp since the first Barrera fight. Unlike their first fight, this time he's focused and in great shape.

On paper Marquez is older, has more wear and tear but the dude is still a helluva fighter! He's a terrific counter puncher and that may cause Manny fits once again in this fight. Juan is very tough and durable, has good power, he recovers VERY quick when hurt, has good hand speed. Marquez makes it very uncomfortable when your fighting him. He's very crafty and just knows how to fight. He'll force Pac to fight like hell tonight cause that's what Juan is bringing with him. Juan is still pissed and brining extra venom from the outcome of his brother Rafael's fight with Vazquez a few weeks ago.

It won't matter as Manny will be too fast and strong for Juan. He's not that one punch fighter that gassed out and lost focus 4 years ago. Manny's more balanced skills and speed will allow him to adjust to anything Marquez brings to him. Freddie Roach is a brilliant strategist so their fight plan is going to be solid allowing Manny to stay focused and execute a tough win this time with NO controversy.

Manny Pacquiao by close decision.
