Found November 14, 2012 on 5TH QUARTER MAGAZINE:
In an interesting read by the LA Times, Manny Pacquiao has been diligently training for his next bout against Juan Manuel Marquez.  As stated by the article, people are expecting a snoozefest because they believe Pacquiao and Marquez are both at the end of their, respective, careers.  Pacquiao made his intentions clear that the fight will be aggressive so he can finally seal the deal on this rivalry.  Pacquiao said, Aggressiveness is the most important thing for this fight. The Filipino boxer would continue on to say, Who’s smarter?  I believe myself.  You’re going to see that in the ring.  This time will be different. Apparently, he was doing work on the heavy bag and just straight up disrespecting the bag and said, “Muy rapido!”  That translates to English, from Spanish, as “very fast”.  Aside from his skill of being fast in the ring, he also has kept his power in his punches.  The LA Times article stated that a sparring partner from Sweden flew in, sparred with Pacquiao and has not returned into the ring after taking a beating from the Filipino congressman. Manny Pacquiao is seen as slowing down due to age and other distractions, but wants to prove every single doubter wrong.  One major doubter and critic is fellow boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr.  This fight against Marquez is not just to beat Marquez and shut him up once and for all, but to silence fans of the sports who have criticized him heavily.
