Manny Pacquiao faces Timothy Bradley on June 9 in an HBO pay-per-view fight in Las Vegas. Leading up to the fight, Pacquiao is sharing weekly thoughts and training updates with HBO. Question: What is it about Juan Manuel Marquez and his style that seems to give you trouble? Will you give him a fourth fight? Are there any options for you after this fight besides a fight with Marquez or Mayweather? Pacquiao: I get asked a lot about my fights with Juan Manuel Marquez. Our trilogy has been as exciting for us as it has been for boxing fans. Juan really understands how to fight southpaws. He's a very smart man and an excellent fighter. His deliberate and patient style of fighting is a product that comes from experience and experience against great opposition. He's a brilliant counterpuncher. My trainer Freddie Roach has said many times that Juan is the only smart one out there; the only fighter who has figured me out. I know the fans want to see a fourth fight between us and I can understand why. Right now I can only focus on the task at hand and that's defending my title against Timothy Bradley. Just because Bradley is moving up in weight doesn't mean he is at a disadvantage, believe me I know. I've moved up in weight a few times myself. No one has ever beaten him -- no one. Freddie and I have four weeks of very hard training to prepare for this fight. I cannot afford to be distracted by thinking of other fights. That is a lesson experience has taught me.
