On Saturday, World Welterweight Champion, Manny Pacquiao defended his title against a resilient Juan Manuel Marquez from Mexico. This was their second rematch, third fight overall in which Manny won two, drew one. Although it was a closely contested match, Manny came out the clear winner! The victory was not as decisive as most wanted and this has brought up questions about the potential Pacquiao-Mayweather fight. Manny’s last few wins have been so lopsided that he has won over a lot of fans but his performance against a defensive counter puncher like Marquez makes one wonder how well he would do against Mayweather, who has a similar style, but much more skilled.
My question is, can he be a congressman and a boxer and do both well, or will he have to choose one over the other at some point? Nevertheless, he’s still, right, now, the best pound for pound fighter and the most exciting boxer to watch, hands down.
