Yup Im laso predicting an 8 round stoppage via Pac although I feel that Jmm will put up a very good fight in the 1st half of the fight. We all know JMM really wants to win and started high altitude training since Dec. Thats how JMM is pumped up abt the fight. Manny also trained his ass for this. Something he hasnt done in awhile. 2 full months of freddie and his group trying to tell him to take it easy since theyve never seen Manny this focused. My thoughts are in the 1st fight yes JMM showed heart by coming back after 3 knockdowns wc is a great feat but you have to take into consideration that Manny had a big blister in his foot and hurt his arm in the 1st round. Still JMM didnt even come close to hurting Pacman. Its obvious Manny can take his punches the problem is can JMM take Pacs hard and relentless power. We shall see this Sat. May the best man win!!
I am kinda trippin about this fight.
Manny came really close to losing in the last one, and while he has improved, you have to know JMM isnt gonna back down.
Hoping for a Pacman KO, but definately sweating JMM.
Earlier today we received word on the full undercard for the March 15 card in Las Vegas headlined by Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez in a rematch from their 2004 draw.
World Boxing Organization (WBO) featherweight champion Steven Luevano (34-1, 15 KOs), from La Puente, CA., will be making the second defense of his championship since winning it last July by knocking out the previously undefeated Nicky Cook, (27-0, 15 KOs), in the 11th round of their fight in London. Luevano successfully defended his title in October, winning a dominant unanimous decision over Antonio Davis (24-2, 12 KOs). On March 15, he will be making a mandatory title defense against No. 1 contender Terdsak Jandaeng (29-2, 19 KOs) from Thailand. Jandaeng enters the fight having won 11 of his last 12 bouts, with over half of those victories coming by way of knockout.
North America Boxing Organization (NABO) bantamweight champion Abner Mares (15-0, 9 KOs), will be risking his undefeated record and No. 3 world rating when he defends his title against top 10 contender and former world title challenger Diosado Gabi (30-3-1, 22 KOs) from The Philippines. Mares, a member of the 2004 Mexican Olympic Team, will be making the second defense of his title since winning it last year by defeating former world champion Isidro Garcia, who retired on his stool after the seventh round. Gabi is riding a two-year, four-bout winning streak with only one bout lasting the distance.
World Boxing Council (WBC) lightweight champion David Diaz (33-1-1, 17 KOs), of Chicago, is enjoying a three-year, eight-bout unbeaten streak. He returns to the ring for a 10-round non-title bout fresh off of his first successful title defense, a hard-fought unanimous decision against legendary three-division world champion Erik Morales. Diaz will be taking on Ramon Montano (15-4-2, 1 KO) from Ciudad Obregon, Mexico who is unbeaten in 11 of his last 12 bouts, including a split decision victory over highly-touted contender Americo Santos (25-1-1, 21 KOs), and a draw against undefeated Dmitriy Salita (24-0, 14 KOs).
All big fights usually have fairly weak undercards. The megastars have to be paid and putting on a decent undercard cost money. Most of the money usually go to the main event fighters. Whatcha goin' to do?
Pacquiao looks shredded. Da guy is always in shape.
