MANILA, Philippines -- Mexican boxer Juan Manuel Marquez paid a visit to Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim Thursday afternoon as part of his press tour in the Philippines.

Lim awarded Marquez a key to the city.

Marquez said he has been training in Mexico and will continue his training while in the Philippines because Pacquiao is "a good fighter."

Marquez said part of his regimen is drinking his urine. "My urine is medicine because it has a lot of vitamins."

"I don't know how to speak Filipino...but mahal ko kayo," he said.
