The much awaited fight between Mexican boxer Juan Manuel Marquez and Filipino sensation Manny Pacquiao is now officially scheduled this 15th of March 2008 in Mandalay Bay Las Vegas Nevada. Marquez, who is the last Mexican in his division to face Pacquiao this year, is raring to defeat the flamboyant Pacquiao and thwart the Filipino from being the best fighter pound for pound.
The two fighters will be disputing the WBC Super featherweight Championship Belt in which Marquez is the defending champion. The Mexican, who is a tough fighter, is out to prove that he could be the man to inflict damage to the career of Pacquiao. Marquez is unpredictable and might surprise Pacquiao given the fact that the flamboyant fighter is over confident of himself.
Some quarters have already predicted that Pacquiao will suffer defeat this 2008. A local columnist and known as the Nostradamus of Asia had warned that Pacquiao, despite of his international billing as one of the best in the history of boxing, will suffer setbacks and defeat is unavoidable this time around.
