“No problem. Anytime. But he must agree to my offer because I will be the promoter. If he agrees to a small offer, then it means he’s really interested. If he fights for a bigger purse, then it’s just for the money,”
by Manny Pacquiao, referring to Juan Manuel Marquez who stopped Joel Casamayor in the 11th round yesterday to snare the Ring lightweight crown
Manny Pacquiao will be the promoter for the upcoming Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez 3rd match-up if only Juan Manuel Marquez would agree to a lesser payday. Shades of Oscar De la Hoya, Manny Pacquiao doing a Golden Boy stint as a shrewd businessman. Manny Pacquiao's fight with Oscar De la Hoya in December would enrich the Pacman even more thus having the muscle and power to promote the Juan Mauel Marquez 3rd match-up. I think JMM's desperation and quest for Pacman's blood would agree on a lesser payday, it's not really about the money as JMM thinks, it's about the chance to prove to himself and to the whole world who's the better fighter. Obviously Manny Pacquiao has nothing to prove because he had already defeated JMM twice considering the judge's error in scoring their first bout.
The Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez III is inevitable because not only that's what JMM wants but that's what boxing fans wants and craves for. And for Manny, it's just another day's work at the office. Sphere: Related Content
