     The third Manny Pacquiao vs Juan Manuel Marquez in the welterweight division is either going to be a quick fight for Manny or a long and drawn out fight for Manny again. 

     Why a quick fight? Well, Manny is going to knock out Marquez early in their fight due to weight issues with Marquez. Most likely they're going to fight at a catch weight, which means Marquez needs to put on some extra pounds. This extra weight is going to affect how Marquez performs. 

     On the other hand, Manny has fought a couple of times already against established welterweight competition like De La Hoya, Cotto, Clottey, and Mosely. He even went up to Junior Middleweight against Margarito.

     If Manny can handle these guys at the welterweight divison, how is Marquez going to be able to fight Manny at a heavier weight. Manny is still fast and powerful at this weight. 

     Marquez just turned 38 a couple of days ago. Is this another factor thats going to affect the outcome. I'm not questioning Marquez' ability at lightweight, he's been crushing the competiton at that weight. I'm just looking at the facts in their upcoming bout at a heavier weight that he hasn't been successful yet.

     Yes its going to be an interesting fight. I don't think Bob Arum would have promoted this fight if it wasn't going to be entertaining. All I can say is: Lets get ready to rumble !!!
