You wanted it, you'll get it.
Sixty four percent of you people who responded to our TSS poll (“Who Should Pacquiao Fight Next?”) thought that the Filipino Fury, the whirling dervish of destruction, Manny Pacquiao, should glove up next against Juan Manuel Marquez.
Golden Boy and Top Rank and Team Manny are with you.
Here's the release: “Golden Boy Promotions and Top Rank, in association with Romanza Boxing Productions and MP Promotions, are proud to announce that on Saturday, March 15, 2008, Juan Manuel Marquez (48-3)will defend his WBC Super Featherweight Title against number one contender Manny Pacquiao (45-3-2) at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino on HBO Pay-Per-View.”
Have at it, gang. Who do you like in this one?
The more youthful Filipino, who's about to turn 29, or the Mexican, age 34, who may well be at the peak of his vocational arc?
The battled before, in 2004, to a draw.
Who takes this one?
