Kill or be killed: Marquez

MANILA, Philippines – Juan Manuel Marquez has only two visions of what will happen on the night he faces Manny Pacquiao for the third time on Nov. 12 in Las Vegas.

“(Either) I knock him out (or I get) knocked out,” Marquez said as quoted by the Spanish-language newspaper ESTO during a press conference for his July 16 tuneup against Colombian puncher Likar Ramos.

Admitting that a fighter of Pacquiao’s caliber poses serious problems, Marquez said he expects a “diffi cult and hard (fi ght)” but is highly optimistic he will make Mexico proud when the mushroom cloud dissipates at the MGM Grand.

Marquez said he will work on “fuerza y fortaleza” (force and strength) with the help of his training team, led by the newlyinducted Hall of Fame strategist Nacho Beristain.

Filipino fi ght fans will get the chance to size up Marquez as Top Rank chief Bob Arum revealed that Peter Chanliong of Solar Sports has acquired the rights to the fi ght that will be held in Cancun.
Marquez hasn’t fought on   Mexican soil in 17 years and the 37-year-old counter-puncher is thrilled and is looking forward to his 10-round match with Ramos at 140 lbs.

But while Marquez has to get rid of Ramos fi rst, Marquez is already drooling over the third Pacquiao fi ght, reiterating that he was the subject of a bum decision in their first two fights.
