Do remember, however, that Manny was also a beggar boxer once.

That's right. Manny was offered $6 million dollars for a rematch with Marquez but he declined. He said that his business with Marquez is over and he will go up a division to fight Diaz. Manny is really worth a lot of money now.

Of course he had to decline. Marquez is his toughest opponent yet. He has to be fully recovered to fight him again. $6 million is not worth the embarassment should he lose.

Hahaha! I Agree! Manny = Money! Everyone wants a piece of Manny (money)! Why not? Manny's last fight is worth Php 3M for Manny and a big sum also for his opponent (win or lose). I would fight Manny even if I get beaten on the first second of the first round to get that money hahaha! Think about this, Marquez's last fight could not even fill up a stadium! But if you fight Manny, Manny = Money! Think Pay per views! Plus the bonus that if you defeat Manny, you become popular too!!!

i think that is right, gigi. and popularity too. and of course honor. even if they lose, the fact that they were able to fight manny pacquiao, is already and honor in itself. and of course, there is a chance of them beating manny, which makes the game more thrilling. :-) and that is really what they hope for--to beat manny. imagine being the first one to be named as the the boxer who beat manny! that would be a challenge and an honor. :-)

yeah, right I agree with this one. Manny has truly proven his worth and his title. Anyone who wants a fight with Manny is truly up for both.

whatever it is, for money=manny or glory it still be for the benefit of the filipino people, i mean not every pinoy has the guts or motivation or talent or whatever you call it like manny has, but lets just hope that he can still make it this time it'll be the best that we can do. bless him!!

Yes you are right. Manny has lost before so i don't know where this "real boxer" talk is coming from. Erick Morales gave Manny a boxing lesson in their first fight but He regrouped and beat the great Erick Morales 2 times afterwards. Manny Pacquiao is a good fighter and the sky is the limit for him. He's still in his prime and has been fighting since what 15? After and if he beats Juan Manuel marquez, another great Mexican fighter, Pacman should be considered "The Mexican legend killer" and go along aand fight The baby bull Juan DIaz that should be a great great fight . I'll be rooting for him and i just hope he doesn't kill himself to make 130 when he fight Marquez. Just my 2 cents :)
