WBC is Cooking the Pacquiao vs Marquez 2

Google Advertisements

The World Boxing Council president Jose Sulaiman finally issued Juan Manuel Marquez another mandatory defense against Manny Pacquiao should he win the coming fight against Mexico’s Rocky Juarez. Marquez is scheduled early this November 3, 2007 to fight against another Mexican Rocky Juarez in the fight dubbed here in the Philippines as “Lagablaban” in a super featherweight championship fight for 12 rounds in Las Vegas Nevada.

Prior to the actual date of fight, WBC announces that Juan Manuel Marquez made it to the weight limit of 60 pounds for the seven-day weigh-in while Rocky Juarez according to his medical records in the WBC charts needs to update his medical records. On the other hand, everybody is looking forward to the coming of Juan Manuel Marquez vs Manny Pacquiao fight 2 as this will surely fall under the best fights of the year should this scheme make it to the first quarter of the year 2008.

Meanwhile, in the papers of the Philippine Daily Inquirer, WBC issued through their president Jose Sulaiman another call for the champion Juan Manuel Marquez to defend his title in his next fight against Manny Pacquiao should he win the November 3 schedule fight.

Despite failed efforts to match again the fury of both fighters in the ring, Jose Sulaiman said in an interview that both fighters are willing to fight each other as this will prove once and for all doubts of who is who in the ring of champions.

Should Rocky Juarez win over an upset against Juan Manuel Marquez, then the first will also be obliged to make a defense over the Pacman who seem to literally eat up all his opponents in the ring and defeat them all including two Mexican boxing icons Marco Antonio ‘the baby-faced assassin” Barrera and Erik “el terrible” Morales.

If Manny declines for the third time, then the president would have to go their way as it is truly that Pacquiao camp doesn’t want to fight Marquez at all. The fate of the Philippines and the Filipino boxing fans are at stake here so this had better come out by next year as a good blast to start the new year in the boxing arena.
