This Saturday night will see Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez step into a boxing ring and face each other for the fourth time. In a sport that thrives off legend, with media who seem to picture themselves sporting a fedora and chomping on a spit soaked cigar while they tell you about the greatest club fight they ever saw like the reincarnation of Bert Sugar, this should be a fight with as much hype as anything ever.
But the shadow of Floyd Mayweather Jr. and the fight-that-will-not-be has robbed something from this fight. ESPN tends to ignore boxing in their awful “debate model” shows when it isn’t the near vomit inducing First Take debates over if it’s Manny that’s ducking Floyd or Floyd that’s ducking Manny. And the hang-up over a fight that we might never see has turned what should be “Pacquiao is fighting Marquez again!” into “Pacquiao is fightingMarquez again?”
But the level-headed among us realize that Pacquiao vs. Marquez is something special. It’s a rivalry that has seen the two men race up in weight 20+ pounds, Pacquiao emerge as one of the most popular fighters in the world, Marquez stake his claim as a true Mexican legend and both men lay legitimate claim to being among the best to ever lace up the gloves.
