Pacquiao should never give Marquez a momentum

I think what Manny Pacquiao should do when he face Juan Manuel Marquez on November 12, at the MGM Grand is start fast and finish strong. As simple as that. Pacquiao need to be fast and aggressive at the start, I say it because that Marquez, being a slow starter, may be thrown off track if Pacquiao jumps on him right on the opening bell at the MGM Grand. He must not give him the momentum because he gets stronger. After more than two weeks of training in the gym in the Philippines, Pacquiao arrived in Los Angeles Saturday evening, took a rest the following day, and a day of rest he continue his sparring with his
new sparring partner in the wild card gym, Pacquiao will mitts sparring and drill with Roach for 10 more rounds before hitting the bag and the speedball. It will be five weeks of intense workout in Roach’s Hollywood sweatshop, where the number of sparring rounds will get to as high as 12 before they start tapering off heading to the final week before the Pacquiao vs Marquez 3 fight.

Roach, who’s been working in and out of the ring making sure he prepares the right plan against Marquez, said he’d love to see Pacquiao knocking out the tougher and the “Last Mexican Standing”. Pacquiao was known as Mexicutioner for beating all Mexican fighters he faced. Based on his previous fights, Marquez is most vulnerable in the early going, as we all remember Pacquiao knockdown the 39 year-old champion three times and was in trouble midway through the first round.

What I believe that if caught early, Marquez may find himself in bigger trouble against the heavy-handed Filipino pound-for-pound champion. Though on their previous fight even Pacquiao knocking down Marquez several times, Marquez still regain his composure and even gave Pacquiao trouble in the later rounds of the Pacquiao vs Marquez fight. The thing is I feel that if they go after him and pressure him right away they can get him out of there. If you see his tapes, he’s been hurt in the first round at least several times but Marquez shows a sign of recovery during the later rounds so I think they should knockout Marquez early in the rounds. People will see another war and people will see another great fight between Pacquiao vs Marquez for the third time and maybe the last time.
