I would like to see this fight happen. I almost think Pacquiao would be too strong for Marquez but he did go 24 rounds with him already. It’s not a true rubber match, but both fights were very fun to watch.
Of course, this assumes Pacquiao beats Moseley in their upcoming fight. Pac has dominated his last 5 opponents and Moseley is a long shot to win. Pacquiao vs Moseley does have a chance for an upset. We have had a few boxing upsets lately like Berto vs Ortiz
By the way, not only was Berto vs Ortiz an upset, but it was an excellent match where both fighters were in their prime and evenly matched. I recommend watching a rerun of it when you get a chance. It is that good.
Interesting development in the world of boxing, with Golden Boy revealing that they had been sent a copy of the offer that Top Rank had made to Juan Manuel Marquez for the Mexican legend to fight Manny Pacquiao for a third time this October. The two fighters previous bouts were legendary instant classic; both brutal violent affairs with controversial finishes that saw Marquez come off the floor to take Pacquiao to his very limit. The first ended a draw while the second saw Pacquiao win a split decision by a single point. Both decisions have been contested by Marquez, who has long campaigned for the chance to prove that he is the better man.
The reason the offer was sent to Golden Boy is that although Marquez’s contract with his former promoters ended this February they still have the right to match any offer made for him. Golden Boy had been attempting to resign Marquez with the promise of a summer light-welterweight title fight against IBF Champion Zab Judah, a bout that would give Marquez the chance to become the first Mexican to win world titles at four different weights. It would also potential set up a ‘super unification’ clash with the winner of the proposed WBA/WBC/WBO title unification match between Amir Khan and Timothy Bradley. It looks increasingly unlikely that Marquez will entertain that offer should Pacquiao defeat Shane Mosley on May 7th and Top Rank follow through on their offer. While Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Pacquiao III isn’t Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd
