Manny Pacquiao declared that his Nov. 12 fight with Juan Manuel Marquez will put an end to all questions.
Obviously offended by repeated claims that he was the recipient of favorable decisions in his two fights with Marquez, the eight division world champion and Sarangani congressman is determined to put closure on his rivalry with the Mexican counter-puncher.
Joining Pacquiao in the buildup for the Nov. 12 fight is his coach-trainer Freddie Roach who arrived in Baguio City from Los Angeles, USA early Tuesday.
The acclaimed American Hall of Fame boxing trainer has Venezuelan Jorge Linares with him to serve as Pacquiao’s sparring partner, as well as his close friend boxing agent Billy Keane.
The first Pacquiao-Marquez fight in 2004 ended on a 12-round draw.
The rematch in 2008 saw Pacquiao declared winner via a split decision, which Marquez said should have gone his way.
