MANILA, Philippines – Juan Manuel Marquez promised that he will be the stronger, more explosive fighter when he trades punches with Manny Pacquiao this December.
The Mexican showed off his ripped physique during an open work out at the Romanza Gym in Mexico as he promised to bring the fight to Pacquiao when they clash for the fourth time in Las Vegas.
"We've done a lot of preparation, and we know Pacquiao, how to fight him and how to win," Marquez said in a report by RingTV’s Lem Satterfield.
Marquez promised that he will step in the ring in very good shape, even better than his conditioning in 2011 when he nearly outpunched Pacquiao.
The Mexican maintained that he’ll be going for a knockout to prove that he’s a better fighter than the Filipino superstar.
"I'll be faster, more explosive and more aggressive," said Marquez. "I will be much better than a year ago. Pacquiao can say whatever he wants. I'm prepared to knock him out...and offer another great fight to pubic."
Despite holding a record of zero wins, two losses and one draw in his previous meetings with Pacquiao, Marquez claimed that he has already beaten the Filipino thrice.
"I am convinced that we were superior in the past, but the judges have said otherwise. Now we are on our way to a victory that leaves no doubt. A strong victory,” said Marquez.
“We are on the way to a knockout to make clear, once and for all, who is better."
