PacMan vs Dynamita!

In the last couple of weeks, boxing and Pinoy boxing fans witnessed great fights. Rafael Marquez and Israel Vazquez fought for a third time and gave every boxing fight a wonderful fight. Juan Diaz and Nate Campbell also gave us a memorable bout at the lightweight division. And less than a week from now, Pacquiao and Marquez will meet for some unfinished business.

To whet your appetite for the fight you should check out Pacquiao's most Significant Fights by Don Steinberg of ESPN. This will lead you into a journey though the Pacman's most memorable fights.

The article also provided a little history of Pacquiao's career including his losses and hiss greatest triumphs. Juan Manuel Marquez is already a part of Pacquiao's story and we will see another chapter this weekend. Many Philippine boxing fans are expecting this to be one of the greatest rematches of all time.

Both fighters fought a very entertaining and controversial bout and this rematch has been well anticipated. In fact, it may have gone too long that some people say that Marquez is no longer in his peak. He still has the skill to beat Pacquiao but he may not be in top form.

Marquez seems to have become more hittable in his last outings. however, that may also be due to his effort to attract more fans to his fights. Despite his considerable boxing prowess, Marquez has been unable to draw a large crowd. A victory against Pacquiao will certainly encourage boxing fans to watch his fights.

This fight is also very important for the Pacman's career.He has been training hard for this encounter because he realize that Marquez is very difficult to beat. If he wins against Marquez, then he will be the undisputed top fighter in the 130 lbs division. Some analyst say that Pacquiao is ready for the lightweight division. His size could prove to be an advantage against Dynamita and some think that he could simply overpower Marquez.

If Manny wins he could fight for a title in the lightweight division or schedule a bout against Hatton or Dela Hoya. Both of these superstars have expressed that they would welcome a bout against Pacquiao.

Well, I guess there is nothing we can do but wait. We only have a few days of waiting before these great fighters exchange leather in the ring. I hope that they will give us a memorable battle.
